So, explain to me the wisdom of the Biden pick, again.
But Jonah Goldberg’s made a darn interesting set of points here (via Jake Tapper): • Obama justified his entire bid against Hillary Clinton on the grounds that he had shown superior judgment by opposing the Iraq war. • Obama said over and over that we can’t have the same people in different chairs if we want real reform. • His ad mocking McCain makes much | Read More »
Many Happy Returns
Byron York over at NRO has a good piece on the paltry charitable giving of Joe Biden. According to ten year’s worth of Biden tax returns, the senator and his wife contributed about one-eighth of one percent (0.0015%) of what they earned to charity, well below the two percent average of American households. During that time Biden’s adjusted gross income (AGI) ranged from about $215,000 | Read More »
Obama-Biden = Incompetent
Over the past 60 years of presidential elections “experience” has proven a tenuous foothold for those trying to discredit an opponent.For instance Richard Nixon was only 39 years of age when Ike put him on the ticket in 1952. The Democrats, who already hated Nixon because of his take down of Alger Hiss and Helen Gahagan Douglas, pounced on Nixon’s inexperience and alleged unsuitability for | Read More »
Gaffes By A VP Candidate
Anyone interested in finding some genuine doozies need only look here. If Joe Biden didn’t exist, we would have to invent him.
Pope to Biden: End the greed, beware of idolatry
I do not mean to make light of (my) Pontiff’s words, however considering Senator Biden’s latest gimmick — a release of his tax records, I had to draw his profound lack of charitable giving into comparison. Regarding Pope Benedict’s “idolatry” comments, well I’ll leave it for Sen. Biden to ensure he doesn’t fall any further for The One.As seen above (and noted here by the | Read More »
The Palin Effect
When John McCain chose Sarah Palin he pulled off perhaps the most brilliant political masterstroke in living memory.Whether he realized all the nuances of his act or not, will likely be the subject of a few books over next 5 or 10 years.I believe that he also had the good fortune to have very fertile ground on which to plant. Just prior to the Sarah | Read More »
We don’t deserve Joe Biden
Seriously. $369/year? Is that all Joe Biden can contribute? If so, must have taken some Delaware-sized stones to sit and smirk in the audience at the Columbia Presidential Forum on Service last night while John McCain talked about his love for the sacrifices our military makes.
Why Won’t Biden Disclose His Earmarks?
Listening to Barack Obama rail about earmarks, you’d think he was a Porkbuster. Far from it, in fact. Obama, who spent the week attacking Sarah Palin, is directing his criticism at the wrong vice presidential candidate.Rather than criticizing Palin for her role in canceling the Bridge to Nowhere, Obama ought to hold his own running mate to the same standards he demanded of Hillary Clinton | Read More »
What if Palin had given Gibson Joe Biden answers?
The nattering nabobs of nonsense are busy parsing Sarah Palin’s answers to Charlie Gibson’s questions in the first segment of the ABC News interview and proclaiming that she isn’t ready to be vice president, God forbid president of the United States.”She wants to start a war with Russia!” and “She didn’t know what the Bush Doctrine is!” they are sneering. Never mind that she never | Read More »

The Bouncing Polls Bring Glad Tidings
I can’t recall a year where the polls have been as weird as 2008. For instance in several polls Obama’s numbers go up when screened for “likely voters”. This is unusual as typically Republican voters are more reliable than Democrats.Adding to the oddity is that the state polls are lagging the national polls so we see McCain up 2.5 in the national numbers yet still | Read More »
