Conversations with an internal pollster for Obama…
Bumped and promoted from the diaries. — Erick I have an interesting story to relay that took place earlier this week between my boss (a senior VP in the company I work for) and one of the Obama campaigns’ internal pollsters. Just to note, my boss is a republican and was meeting the Obama rep over lunch for other reasons. Politics obviously came up due | Read More »
‘Senator Government’ vs. Joe the Plumber in final presidential debate
It was a comical moment many may have missed in the final presidential debate, and for Sen. John McCain it was a slip of the tongue. But it made a telling point because it spoke to Sen. Barack Obama’s core belief—that government is the solution to everything. If you filter through the rhetoric from both candidates, you emerge with a sharp contrast. McCain wants to | Read More »
Mark Murray Wants to Really Politicize Trig Palin
John McCain tonight talked about Sarah Palin’s role in helping special needs kids. In the process of this, he brought up autism and the rate of increase in autism. He also mentioned Palin having a special needs child. So Mark Murray, an alleged reporter, decided to get a dig in on Trig Palin and McCain. See him here. It is rather pathetic. I don’t think | Read More »
I guess Barry decided he already won.
Tonight we finally saw what so many of us have been waiting for. John McCain mopped the floor with Barack Obama. Throughout the night, Barack Obama looked distant, like he did not want to be there, like he was annoyed. He really looked annoyed all night. McCain on the other hand looked like the comeback kid — the guy who knew he had to do | Read More »
Obama is lying. No one said “Kill him” about Obama at a Palin event.
That is a bold faced lie. As Patterico notes the comment was made about Bill Ayers, not Barack Obama. Obama flat out lied.
Today’s Word Is “Erratic”
It’s not a secret or a surprise that people on both sides of the political aisle try to drive stories and common themes, but one of the things that’s especially amusing about the Left is the willingness of Democratic talking heads and lefty bloggers to mindlessly parrot verbatim the talking points handed down by their campaign, in the hopes of driving particular words into the | Read More »
YouTube yanks McCain videos and there’s a definite backstory
Sen. John McCain’s campaign protested removal of videos by YouTube because of takedown notices even though the videos did not infringe on copyrights. Via a letter dated Oct. 13 to YouTube, the campaign said the videos contained less than 10 seconds of video with CBS content. CBS refused comment to TV Week. Comments at news websites often complain about the Digital Millenium Copyright Act that | Read More »
Bill Ayers will be at tonight’s debate. (Alas, only spiritually.)
Columnist Eric Zorn of the Chicago Tribune might have finally found the ultimate rebuttal for our “Barry -hearts- terrorists” line of attack: Neither Ayers nor his wife was espousing or practicing terrorist acts in the 1990s when Obama met them. They haven’t committed or advocated violent protest since the early 1970s. Then again, I have not heard the claim that Ayers is a practicing terrorist; | Read More »
“I’ve Got a Little List” Singing Points for John McCain (When the Debate Slows Down)
If things get slow tonight, or if John McCain doesn’t get the questions he wants, I suggest he put his singing talents to use and belt out the following ditty– I’ve Got a Little List (From The Obama) As someday it may happen that the truth it must be found, I’ve got a little list, I’ve got a little list. Of friends of The Obama, | Read More »
The Party of Weenies Deserves to Be Roasted
By Rose Pedenko and Tanya Simon The party of Ronald Reagan is looking more and more like those persons who stand idly by and watch strangers get mugged. Except the “mugees” are members of their own party. We would be putting it mildly if we said we’re sick and tired of hearing so-called conservatives (are you listening, John McCain?) tossing about docile rhetoric at his | Read More »
The Obama campaign’s pre-debate media flack points.
Sure, they all do it. So stipulated. It’s still nice to see that the Obama campaign is deliberately (and quite hypocritically) trying to play angles like “erratic” and “dishonorable” and – ooh, this is a good one! – “unsteady.” It’s even nicer for them to give us a clear link ahead of time to the most egregious talking-points repeaters among the media. If you see | Read More »
Health Insurance Is Bad for Your Wealth
by Lance Thompson During the second presidential debate of this campaign, Senators McCain and Obama were at pains to explain the merits of their respective health plans. Obama seeks to bring all people under one plan to capitalize on economies of scale. McCain plans to bring market forces to bear on medical costs by giving consumers a tax credit to apply toward any medical plan | Read More »
Please favorite and 5 star this video so it goes up the rankings. Thanks.
John McCain Take Control Of The Debate
Many in the main stream are calling tonight’s debate between John McCain and Barack Obama , McCain’s last stand. Once again they are saying that McCain needs a knockout blow or all is lost and Obama wins the Presidency. Even many who are conservatives see tonight as McCain’s Alamo and unless he blows Obama away with the so called knockout blow it’s over. While I | Read More »
Appeal to Americans As Americans
When Sarah Palin mentioned self-responsiblility during her debate, Frank Lunz’s (sp?) whatchyamacallit devices (record-o-meters?)moved to the highest levels of approval not matched at any other time during the debate. Senator McCain has tried to appeal to the hard working Americans by complementing us, acknowledging our work ethic. So far, he has not connected. I believe he needs to look America in the eye tonight and | Read More »
