Ridge for VP?
This afternoon on Special Report with Brit Hume, the panel, consisting of Bill Kristol, Jeff Birnbaum, and Charles Krauthammer discussed the rumors swirling around that Senator McCain will announce his vice-presidential pick this week. None believed that the announcement would come this week. Conventional wisdom lately is that Mitt Romney is the most likely pick when the decision is made. Krauthammer reiterated this belief, but | Read More »
Put the Cork Back in the Champagne Bottle
CNN’s Anderson Cooper called it a “stunning development” and his panel guest David Gergen characterized it as a “devastating blow to the McCain campaign.” The Liberal media are billing it as “Maliki Demands Timetable” and the Liberal bloggers are boldly proclaiming “Maliki Endorses Obama’s Plan.”
Mike Allen pushes a left wing smear against McCain and treats it as his own
Mike Allen at the Politico has an article that says all of McCain’s gaffes are raising questions about his age. The McCain campaign says Obama has had plenty of flubs of his own, including a reference to “57 states” and a string of misstated place names during the primaries that Republicans gleefully sent around as YouTubes. But the mistakes raise a serious, if uncomfortable question: | Read More »
Peter Wehner For McCain Ad-Man
This is an excellent refutation to the Obama campaign’s arguments concerning Iraq policy. The McCain campaign would be wise to incorporate it into its stump speech. Pronto.
Letting Go Of A President
The looming departure from Pennsylvania Avenue for George and Laura Bush finally affords me the opportunity for a little closure. I mean, I stood by him through so many travails that I came to learn what “my President” really felt like. The first Farm Bill…”but he’s my President.” Post 9/11 Airline bailout…”but he’s my President.” Harriet Miers, No Child Left Behind, Dubai Ports World, Social | Read More »
The Abortion Conundrum in Blue State America
This is my first diary posting after reading redstate.com for a while. I decided to create my own posting almost as a form of therapy. You see I am a conservative who was born in New York City, went to the most elitist liberal public schools, attended state universities, worked mostly with liberal non-profits (I was even a community organizer!!) and now live in New | Read More »
BREAKING: Novak reports McCain will tab Veep this week
Bob Novak tells the world that his sources tell him that John McCain will pick his Veep this week. The reasoning? He wants to take some of the press away from Obama’s foreign adventures. Novak will give no names, but he points out that “Mitt Romney has led the speculation recently.” If the campaign wants to steal some of Barry’s thunder, Romney is not the | Read More »
Earth to McCain: Hold Your Fire on VP Pick until GOP Convention!!!
Recently, [Robert Novak] (http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=27630) has come out with a developing story that the McCain campaign is seriously considering naming a VP pick this week. Presumably, this is being done to help counter the overwhelming pro-Obama coverage that is likely to take place this week with his overseas trip. Until now, I had ignored the rumors I’ve heard from multiple sources that the Obama campaign had | Read More »
McCain’s New Energy Ad: “Pump”
Glass-jaw Obama ought to be changing his position on drilling any day now, announcing (via NYT editorial) that he has always supported more domestic drilling . . .
Are We There Yet? Victory in Iraq and the 2008 Election
“Events, dear boy, events.” –Former British PM Harold Macmillan on the greatest threat to any government’s plans. “In chaos there is opportunity” –Variously attributed. It’s time for Republicans to decide: are we willing to stake the election on the proposition that we have won the war in Iraq?
Dan beat me to the McCain Editorial thing, so here’s a bit on an Obama orgy.
Hey, that was the actual title and everything. Obama orgy By JOSEPH W. MCQUAID New Hampshire Union Leader Publisher The blatant bias of the major national news media toward Barack Obama is now so overwhelming that it would not be worth noting, except that the election of a President of the United States is involved. It is a propaganda blitz that would make the Kremlin | Read More »
The New York Times rejects John McCain’s reply to Obama
John McCain has been given a failing grade by New York Times opinion editor Dave Shipley, who quickly vacated the premises for his vacation but told McCain that he could have a do-over. Drudge reports that John McCain submitted an editorial to the lefty New York Times last week, only to have it be rejected as not Obama-esque enough by Times opinion editor David Shipley: | Read More »
How to Win/Lose an Election
John McCain is a man of exceptional honor, impeccable integrity, and one who holds strong convictions toward his principles and core values. Those are marvelously-wonderful character traits for any human being to have – especially the President of the United States of America. The sad reality is – that won’t win elections.
MSNBC Airs Video of Ledger’s Joker After McCain Intro
Nope, there isn’t any leftward tilt at MSNBC, is there? How could there be when MSNBC was introducing a John McCain clip during a “news” story and instead of the video of John McCain, up popped Heath Ledger as “The Joker.” Our old pal Johnnydollar captured the video. Of course, it is equally as possible that it was just plain incompetence in the control room, | Read More »
