Who is Barack for?
Back in March there was a huge furor over Barack’s minister, the Reverend Jerimiah White. Barack gave a speech in Philadelphia trying to minimize the damage, but not quite denying the outrageousness of what the Rev. had been saying. In this speech, he said he had not been present to hear the exact remarks, but defended this black bigot by saying he was passionate in | Read More »
Maliki Endorses Obama’s Iraq Timeframe*
As a Redstate resident liberal, constant reader, occasional commenter, and very rare poster (I think this is my third post in a year), I am much more given to sit back and read than to lay out my own opinion. A story that I read this morning, however, was too thought provoking to pass up: Maliki has officially endorsed Obama’s 16-month Iraq withdrawal plan. Here’s | Read More »
One thing I learned
When I was a boy, my mother told me that lying was a terrible thing to do, because all you had in life, you could truly call your own, was your good name. So if you lied, you gave up that very special possession. I was not sure I understood at the time how important those words would be in later life. I was sure | Read More »
Not the Reality in Iraq Obama knew
Fred Kagan, Kim Kagan, and Jack Keane of The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday about The New Reality in Iraq, via IraqStatusReport.com. After reading it, I decided to see how Senator Obama’s newly changed stance on Iraq matches up with their view of the situation there. As things seem to get scrubbed off the Obama website, this will be time sensitive and relevant only until | Read More »

McCain’s Parting Gift’s to Obama:

Obama recited the Muslim call to prayer in Arabic on February 27, 2007?
Take this with a huge grain of salt from the usual corner: No Quarter. New Yorker Cover Cartoon NOT a Satire? It is being reported today that Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times has in his possession a tape recording of an interview he once had with Barack Obama that may be very damaging to the latter’s campaign for the presidency. The tape (and | Read More »

Obama; The World Tour
As you may recall Barack Obama refused the offer from John McCain to share a trip to Iraq. This proffer came from a man who has visited the country and our forces 8 times now. While in my mind, it is facile to explain most events which a politician undertakes as “political”, Mr. McCain has done his best to keep the trips focused and meaningful. | Read More »
‘Lifelong Conservative’ Throwing all Principles to The Winds and Voting for Obama
Larry Hunter claims he is a “lifelong conservative.” Yet, in his recent New York Daily News article, he also says he is voting for Barack Obama for president. The two simply cannot coexist. One has to be obliterated in favor of the other. And, regardless of the facile reasoning Hunter gives for his apostasy, this article does nothing to support any supposed conservative cause. It | Read More »
A vote for McCain is a vote for racisim.
“Mr. Paterson, who supported Senator Clinton throughout her campaign and was a Clinton super-delegate before endorsing Mr. Obama after Mrs. Clinton conceded, cast the presidential race in stark racial terms, saying its outcome would decide whether the nation could finally move beyond its legacy of slavery and segregation.” this is from: http://www.nysun.com/new-york/paterson-obama-defeat-would-be-victory-for-racism/82115/?print=0076236121 Does anyone else think that it is funny that Mr. Paterson voted against | Read More »

Obama to Campaign in France, Germany, and Other Swing States
So Senator Obama is getting ready to go on a campaign swing through Europe, giving public addresses to cheering throngs in such swing states as France, Germany, and the U.K. I guess McCain can’t even hope to win the electoral votes in those nation-states. Alas, perhaps the best course for McCain is simple honesty–just concede the French vote to Obama..and preemptively concede that Obama will | Read More »
Nope, no media bias here, no sir… (now where’s that Fairness Doctrine?)
Now I was not terribly surprised when I read this story this morning, but the more I thought about it, the madder I got. Heck, the President of the United States himself doesn’t get this kind of pandering attention from the MSM “anchors”. I do realize that the evening news is now only a blip on the media radar screen, but it does still hold | Read More »
Obama raised $52 million in June
Obama’s $52 million The Obama campaign rolls out its June fundraising numbers today, which meet the sky-high expectations the campaign faces and surpassed a recent wave of rumors of a relatively slow month. The sum nearly equals Obama’s — and the American political — record of $55 million in February. Spokesman Bill Burton emails that the campaign raised a total of $52 million in the | Read More »
