And The Netroots Will Explode In 5, 4, 3, 2 . . .
1. Of course, I have to believe that if Barack Obama did not actually believe that the surge overseen by Secretary Gates really has been successful, he would not have consented to keep the Secretary on. By agreeing to retain Secretary Gates at the Pentagon, the President-elect has not-too-subtly endorsed the very surge and counterinsurgency efforts he spent time denouncing on the campaign trail.

What To Do About Gitmo
The latest question over at the Arena. As indicated here, I think that it is also a more complicated question than people give it credit for being.
Loose Lips Sink Ships
It’s going to be a long four years if Obama and his posse can’t keep their mouths shut. Drudge is blaring this as his top headline, but I like Jim’s take on it better. BUSH Betrayed–Obama Leaks Info from Private Talk Need I say more? If the man can’t keep one PRIVATE conversation with HIS CoC (yes, remember George Bush is STILL President, and will | Read More »
Obama and the Use of Military Force: Why an Obama Presidency would Necessarily Fail
Here is something the media won’t tell you: The means by which Barack Obama has positioned himself to potentially capture the presidency have put him in a box from which there is no escape. Should he obtain his goal, the seeds of his political destruction have already been planted, and there is one and only possible outcome: disastrous failure. Whether the disaster would be substantive | Read More »
Study Says Mature Presidents Are Better For the Country
This is a fantastic article giving evidence for why Obama’s inexperience would be a serious risk to our security. Please read and pass the word.

The Time Is Now: A McCain/Palin Ad Blitz For The Last Week
It’s the last week before voters go to the polls and choose America’s 44th President. I have observed with trepidation as the McCain Campaign has pulled its punches on major issues to settle on not-effective-enough character attacks with minor and pathetically weak (actually – Bush-like) attempts to sell policy on the major issues on voters’ minds. I have sought in the past few weeks to | Read More »
Move over, Joe the Plumber. Here’s Joe the Dumber!
Just when the Obama campaign was enjoying the focus of the race being on a weak economy, here comes Joe Biden to bring the game back to John McCain’s strong suit – foreign policy and national security issues. Not only that, but Biden managed to stencil a big question mark over his running mate’s head at the same time. And the big ol’ dumb guy | Read More »

From FOXNews.com: Just as Americans are finally beginning to reap the benefits of plunging gasoline prices — including more money in their pockets — OPEC is getting ready to squeeze them once again by cutting oil production and driving up prices to refineries.

McCain/Palin Ad Campaign Themes For The Final Stretch
The Economy & Taxes: In our system of Government, the Congress controls the purse. Despite the attacks of 9/11, despite Enron and the accounting scandals, the economy enjoyed 41 consecutive months of solid growth and nearly ten million new jobs from 2003 to early 2007. Then the Democrats took over Congress … Jim Johnson and Franklin Raines were the CEOs of Fannie Mae, the architects | Read More »

The “Stupid Party”, John McCain and the Last Two Weeks
We’re heading into the final two weeks and let’s be honest, right now Barack Obama is in the driver’s seat. $150 million dollars raised in September – if I’m not mistaken, practically matching dollar for dollar everything that has been raised by the Republican National Committee over the entire cycle. Colin Powell – who still has massive amounts of credibility with the great ignorant mass | Read More »
The Obama Doctrine
Explained here. Scary how accurate Michael Cannon is here.
The most important issue facing us today?
I don’t know about anyone else, but the economy is not the “it” issue for me. I’m much more concerned about national security. What the he!! difference does it make if my stocks are doing well if I have to worry about homicide bombers at the grocery store? I understand that people worry about losing their jobs and homes but seriously I would rather be | Read More »

Russia and Venezuela Kissing in a Tree…….
Earlier this spring, Barack Obama made a comment on how Venezuela was a “tiny country” that posed no serious threat to the United States. However, his world tour consisting of photo ops with world leaders and then negotiating a dealy in troop withdrawls behind President Bush’s back was supposed to reassure everyone that he’s not the foriegn policy idiot we all know he is. Consider | Read More »
