A Hail Mary that would work …

    Highly recommended is this recent Small Wars Journal entry The Case for Keeping SecDef Gates I think I can speak for many military families in saying, that during the next debate, either candidate can win my vote instantly by pledging to keep SecDef Gates. Yes, SecDef Gates is that good. Yes, the war is that important. There’s almost no discussion on RedState about the war. | Read More »

    Positivity and the bah humbugs that are infecting this site!

    I have seen alot of negativity from Trolls, Moby’s and some long time posters. My suggestion is for those who have been here if you have nothing to add to win than say nothing. This is not the time nor the place for bucking up the Democrat lying racist party. There are sites just for your type of “help” they are Daily Kos and Democratic | Read More »

    Fellow Redstaters, please help refine McCains’ campaign themes

    I’m on vacation and am borrowing a computer for this diary. I don’t know if the e-mail excerpted below got to McCain’s campaign, but listening to Susah Palin last night, especially her closing statement (I missed her opening), I did hear some of what I suggested, including her defense of American Exceptionaism and her mention of Obama leading to a sunset of American freedom. On | Read More »

    re: What will Tina Fey do now?

    These people are wasting our time, Josh. When confronted with a contrary proof, they dig in, retrenching themselves merely by digging it deeper. I think most of it is the natural reaction of a lightweight, though it seems some lingering Romney nonsense has compounded matters. For the sake of honesty — PLEASE! — I went into last night’s debate with some trepidation. It would be | Read More »

    SARAH PALIN (VP 2008-2012; PRESIDENT 2012-2020)

    If you are like me, by now, tired of reading the petty headlines, crazy polls and shameful banter of the Liberal, Socialist press then grab a beer, get a chair and settle down this evening to see Sarah kick ass. Here is a star, not just for today, not just for this election but for the next 12 years. This is the young bright future | Read More »

    Difference beween Petraeus-McCain victory in Iraq

    This morning in Meet the Press a question was presentedto suggest that Gen. Petraeus in a BBC interview saidit is not possible to talk about victory in Iraq, whereasMcCain was still using the word! A proper answer to this is to state that the word “victory”has a very well defined meaning in military terms, meaningvictory in a battle or war. What McCain means by the | Read More »

    Grant, Patton, MacArthur, Ike…

    From today’s New York Times. By way of introduction, the article, on page 1 of the World section, is written by Dexter Filkins. Mr. Filkins is no novice to Iraq, he actually lived there for three years after Saddam went away so he knows from whence he speakith. And please, read the whole article. It’s a fairly long read, but you’ll savor every second of | Read More »

    roadmap to victory

    If you look at the current RCP electoral map, the road to 270 goes thru the following toss up state: Virgina (reasonable), Ohio (reasonable), Nevada (close to reasonable), New Mexico (close to reasonable). The debates will be huge, key is to keep the Obiden ticket off balance and polls slightly in the good guys favor until debates. I expect a relaxed and energized Mccain in | Read More »

    The Best Defense… is a good offense

    See RCP electoral map and see if you are as amazed as I was… http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/maps/obamavsmccain/ What is startling are the states that are leaning for Obama. His map is shrinking. This means our chances for winning are expanding and the Obama chances of winning are dwindling. I still tell others that this Obama’s to lose… but that may change if trends hold up just before | Read More »

    Loquacious Enemy Continues to “Text Message” the Pangs of Defeat

    Way back in January 2007, your humble correspondent made his (in)famous RedState debut with a lengthy essay comparing the contemporary situation in Iraq with the one that our forebears faced on the Pacific island of Guadalcanal in 1942-1943. That essay ended with the following flourish: Guadalcanal had been a longer and murkier affair; it was clear that the Japanese had lost, but the extent of | Read More »

    My Thoughts on McCain

    I have just recently become interested in politics, however from the first time I started hearing about John McCain I knew that I wanted him to become President. The thing that attracted to him was his values. As an enlisted soldier in the US Army I know what it is like to have brothers in arms. When I read about what John McCain went though | Read More »

    Obama’s Losing Bet On Defeat In Iraq

    Even after eight years in which every conceivable calumny has been hurled at President Bush, his advisers and his supporters, there are apparently some things you are not supposed to say in American politics, and John McCain has gone and said one of them: This is a clear choice that the American people have. I had the courage and the judgment to say I would | Read More »
