Obama’s Unwanted Storylines…

    From the Politico… http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1109/29993.html As a service to Redstate readers, the “Reader’s Digest” Version…  “Here are seven storylines Obama needs to worry about:     1. He thinks he’s playing with Monopoly money   It is clear Obama underestimated the political consequences that flow from the perception that he is a profligate spender. 2.

    The Decline of the Defenders of the First Amendment

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. As I am writing this, it has become apparent that The Harry Reid has his sixty votes for cloture and | Read More »

    No Spin Zone

    There are no more spin doctors in the Democratic Party. They are simply dissemblers. They are deliberately making up stories out of thin air to create a firewall protecting their “Dear Leader”. Gone are the days when strategists and party pundits tried to twist the facts to make their side look blameless and righteous, though misunderstood. The race in Virginia is a prime example. From | Read More »

    Caught Flatfooted

    Let’s take the socialist Kumbahist at their word.  Let’s pretend, for a moment, the apologists at the New Obama Times and the Washington Compost have the story right.  The Obama administration knew the Iranians were building a secret nuclear reactor, the object of this reactor was to build nuclear weaponry, and the Obama administration’s policy of ‘engagement’ was in full play.  Let’s presume they knew | Read More »

    Michelle Antoinette’s Example to the Masses

    While the president has the power of the bully pulpit and the veto, the First Lady has the power of her example to use for the public good.  Michelle Antoinette has decided to use her powers to transform America.  She wants us to all subsume our vigorous appetites in favor of politically correct fare.  While she and the president pig out on burgers and fries, | Read More »

    Creating a Liberal Press Monopoly in Five Easy Steps

    In a Friday StarTribune OpEd piece arguing to ‘save journalism’, Bruce Sanford and Bruce Brown, state the government must step in and level the playing field with ‘fair use doctrine.’ (It should be viewed with reservation whenever the word ‘fair’ is used by advocates of any political side because it usually means ‘fair to me’ and not an authentically balanced approach.) The Bruces come up | Read More »

    Pickin’ on Poor Nancy

    I would contend that what the press is doing to poor Speaker Pelosi amounts to enhanced interrogation methods, or torture.  Democrats are never subjected to harsh questioning techniques and doing so is patently unfair.  Corrupt politicians like Tim Geithner and Charlie Rangel haven’t been subjected to such methods, why should Nance?  This is truly a bullying by the national press corps that they would make | Read More »

    NY Times: here’s a question you can ask

    I hear Helene Cooper at the NYT feels like Obama is giving the press the cold shoulder.  I’ll try not to laugh – clearly Ms. Cooper didn’t see the stories during the campaign, or just after the inauguration on that very topic. It seems that whenever a reporter momentarily escapes the orgasmic afterglow of electing “notBush”, they feel a sense of unease about this unproven | Read More »

    A Fundamental Change in Republican Strategy Is Needed

    One of the perks of living in the valley is morning radio. Normally KFYI’s Bruce Jacobs is rambling on about ‘Journos’, his current target of liberal propaganda purveyors. This morning we were treated to the Broomhead. Whenever Jacobs finds more important things to do with this day, Mike Broomhead (yes that is his name, don’t laugh at it, he is very good) fills in. This | Read More »

    Proposal For RedState and ‘The Party’

    This post is in reference to the concept presented in ‘this post’. First off, allow me to commend Ron Robinson’s intent! The party should be all about outreach and contact and activism, but Republicans, by our very nature are not activists. Activism in Republican circles always amounts to a great start and a quick fade. Protesters do not stand up and march for the proper, | Read More »

    Observations from the Cheap Seats

    The press continues their fawning ways — now, remarking about the pace of Obama’s policy making in a transition period. We hear the words unprecedented, bold, and decisive. Somewhere lost in this salivating praise for The One is the fact that George W. Bush has permitted this president-elect unprecedented access to his policy advisors, to his economic briefings and to his cabinet level officials. Add | Read More »

    The Decline and Fall of the Fourth Branch

    The extreme left now has unfettered control of all four branches of our government. Yes, I said four. They control the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches. The judicial branch might take awhile, but it is likely that the next president will appoint two or three Supreme Court Justices. These are lifetime appointments, but their decisions last much longer—often forever. And the fourth branch? The left | Read More »

    Harlem minister on media hypocrisy

    Harlem minister Rev. James D. Manning speaks out on the Mainstream Media’s (MSM) hypocrisy about chastising Sarah / Bristol Palin regarding out of wedlock pregnancy when Obama himself was born out of wedlock. http://www.atlah.org/broadcast/ndnr09-03-08.html

    On Media Bias

    Media’s Presidential Bias and DeclineColumnist Michael Malone Looks at Slanted Election Coverage and the Reasons WhyColumn By MICHAEL S. MALONEOct. 24, 2008 — The traditional media are playing a very, very dangerous game — with their readers, with the Constitution and with their own fates.

    My latest “TV Ad” – Obama’s campaign finance advantage

    I made this web ad a few days ago (and have posted it here before) but I wanted to get some more feedback and MORE IMPORTANTLY see if there is a way to have the McCain campaign look at the concept. This web ad lasts about 2 minutes and all excerpts are from the June 22 2008 edition of “Meet The Press.” This could be | Read More »
