Only yesterday, I put down my very public wager that soon, despite promises to the contrary, we would see Barack Obama rely on lobbyists to help with his transition and his Administration. And now . . . well . . . look at this:President-elect Barack Obama has imposed stricter conflict-of-interest restrictions on his White House transition team than any president before him. But a list | Read More »
RM Exclusive: Stem Cell committee exporting Michigan jobs, hundreds of thousands of dollars
Cross-posted on Right Michigan at www.RightMichigan.com.”It’ll bring jobs. It’ll bring jobs as dollars become available to do the research. And if intellectual properties are developed from this research, which I’m certain they will be, that will bring more jobs.”That’s the prognosis from Dr. Joe Schwarz, the one-time Congressman from Michigan’s 7th District and the current front-man for Cure Michigan, the Proposal 2 ballot organization asking | Read More »
Connections With Bill Ayers Apparently Do Not Count Unless The Obama Campaign Says They Count
The latest in heads-I-win-tails-you-lose political argumentation. And unsurprisingly, no one in the mainstream media is paying the slightest bit of attention.
There are many twists and turns in the maze in which Poison Pelosi’s PAC-Man gobbles up the “fruits” of politics that are campaign cash: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has directed nearly $100,000 from her political action committee to her husband’s real estate and investment firm over the past decade, a practice of paying a spouse with political donations that she supported banning last year.

Reid Blocks Online Predator Bill to Help Obama
This Congress hasn’t accomplished all that much, so you’d think they’d be eager to pass a no-brainer such as bipartisan legislation to protect kids from online predators. You’d be wrong.Last December, the House passed the Securing Adolescents from Exploitation Online Act by a resounding margin of 409-2. The bipartisan bill expands reporting requirements for child sex exploitation and child pornography, requires providers to disclose the | Read More »

Is Charlie Rangel In Trouble?
Perhaps; when even the New York Times editorial board believes that he ought to stand aside from his Ways and Means Chairmanship for at least a period of time while his tax history is being investigated, the Code Red ought to be issued in Rangel’s office to signal impending political danger.Of course, it should be noted that Nancy Pelosi continues to protect Rangel in a | Read More »
Hypocritical Obama campaign calls McCain dishonorable
Barack Obama’s campaign demonstrated what shameless hypocrites they are. This morning, they went up with an ad calling John McCain dishonorable and sleazy.Yet on Friday, they released an ad that accused him of not using a computer (a strange accusation). When it turned out that his well-known mobility problem is part of the reason, what do they do? Change the subject by quoting him out | Read More »
Which Country Does John McCain Love?
Barack Obama yesterday made the single biggest mistake of his campaign, yet it seems to have been lost in the commotion surrounding his ill-advised “e-mail” ad and its aftermath. In an unbridled display of naked hypocrisy, Barack “Don’t Question My Patriotism” Obama repudiated a campaign’s worth of rhetoric and openly questioned John McCain’s commitment to the United States.
Obama’s Addicted to Pork
Barack Obama can try to throw mud, but be can’t dodge his voting record. He’s voted for pork barrel projects over hurricane relief, health care for children, and anything else. Go read Allah on the taxpayer money Obama earmarked for a major fundraiser, as well as my post at the Standard detailing his votes against every effort to cut earmarks that came before him.
Politics And Hypocrisy
Much has been made over the past 24 hours about Barack Obama’s “lipstick on a pig” statement, and how it may or may not have been a veiled shot at Sarah Palin. While, after hearing the sound bit in context, I seriously doubt that it was, the Illinois Senator’s cry of foul for the flak he took over the statement strikes me as hypocritical.I remember | Read More »
Question Of The Day
Think many private citizens would have the kind of powerful friends that Charlie Rangel does if those private citizens were also tax scofflaws?
Obama for a “new politics” as long as it helps him
When the going gets rough, Barack Obama’s principles get going.Marc Ambinder notes that Obama is abandoning his previous statements on outside groups: There’s been a spurt of 527 activity on behalf of Sen. John McCain, but Barack Obama campaign has suddenly gone silent on the subject. That’s because, after of year of telling donors not to contribute to 527 groups, of encouraging strategists not to | Read More »
The next line of attack and another liberal double standard…
I told my wife that once the media and pundits realize that Palin is a conservative, experienced, and principled version of Obama (which is to say the exact opposite)…the new line of attack will expose the new double standard from liberal media and the left of America. I anticipated the line of attack to take a week, or at least a few days to kick | Read More »
