MI Morning Update: Obama’s speech, more style than substance…as usual

    67 Days Until Election Day August 29, 2008 MORNING UPDATE: MCCAIN VP PICK…is due out today around 11:00am.  There was unbelievable speculation, theories and conjecture throughout the evening…but nothing more. OBAMA’S SPEECH…the speech is over, the fireworks have faded and the Democratic National Convention is over, but the fact that Barack Obama lacks the experience and temperament to be this country’s commander in chief remains unchanged. | Read More »

    McCain/Romney (leaked on JohnMcCain.com?)

    This was posted over on www.redcounty.com by someone claiming to have seen it (and saved it from an) accidental posting on the McCain website Thursday night: Anonymous said: It is Mitt. McCain’s people screwed up and put this up on their website Thursday evening then removed it

    Get Sarah Palin on the phone

    Tonight Barak Obama electrified a crowd and perhaps the nation. No, I’m not some shill for Obama and on my personal blog, I’ve already written why a speech is simply an exercise in teleprompter reading. Obama can read a teleprompter … I get it. But I am not the typical American. The typical American is going to see the glitz, the hype, and the man | Read More »

    Tim Pawlenty Abruptly Cancels Media Interviews in Denver–VP?

    I’m going to join in on the Veepstakes speculation here with something that someone pointed out to me. Could McCain’s VP be Gov. Pawlenty? An interesting article from Yahoo New has this to say: Read it below the fold…

    Three best (and worst) VP choices for McCain

    Top three VP candidates that would help McCain.* Any of these would jazz up the base 1) Pawlenty 2) Romney3) Thompson Top three VP candidates that would hurt McCain* Any of these would depress the base 1) Tom Ridge2) Joe Lieberman3) Kay Bailey Hutchinson These are just my own preferences, of course. One thing I would like to add is that MIKE HUKABEE has been | Read More »

    Listen to the Architect: McCain Should Go with Romney

    Once again, I find myself at odds with the Directors. I like Cantor and I personally think he’d be great as a VP, but I don’t know if he’s got enough of the resources or name-recognition that people are looking for. Same for Pawlenty. Romney, though a staunch rival of McCain in the primaries, was rather gracious in his CPAC concession, which is something McCain | Read More »

    McCain’s Chosen One(Revealed?)UPDATE

    Fox News is reporting that McCain has indeed chosen his running mate and will appear with him/her tomorrow at 11:00 AM. The identity of McCain’s vice presidential selection is still unknown, but the presumptive GOP presidential nominee made the decision Thursday and is expected to shortly notify his selection, according to campaign manager Rick Davis. So now we wait and continually refresh Marc Ambinder as | Read More »

    *NEW POLL* Mitt Romney helps McCain in Florida!!

    TALLAHASSEE — Joe Biden’s barely a blip. Mitt Romney’s more of a hit. Gov. Charlie Crist should stay where he is. And Joe Lieberman should go away. That’s all according to Mason-Dixon Polling & Research’s latest Florida voter survey gauging the vice presidential picks and possibilities in the presidential race. The poll shows the race is almost dead-even: 45 percent favor Barack Obama and 44 | Read More »

    The Perfect V.P. Video

    Sarah Palin Campaign Spot I’m aware she’s only in the middle of her first term, but Obama is in the middle of his first term as Senator so at least the Republicans have the sense to place expereince at the top of the ticket. I’m also not sure the accusation that someone in her administration put pressure on the State police to fire of her | Read More »

    John Kasich and Kirsten Powers agree on FOX

    I was watching Hannity tonight, and they had John Kasich and Kirsten Powers on, and while they come from opposite sides of the political spectrum they did seem to agree on one VERY important issue, one of THE most important issues remaining in this campaign, the issue of who will John McCain pick as his running mate. It seems that both Kasich and Powers agree | Read More »

    Drudge is reporting McCain has decided on a VP

    I’m sure the pick has been made for several days and was cemented soon after Obama announced his pick. They have had to make travel arrangements for whoever it was.

    It’s going to be Gov. Pawlenty for McCain’s VP

    You know how sometimes you are suddenly hit by a moment of clarity so certain that all other possibilities seem unlikely? I’ve had such a moment. McCain’s VP will be Pawlenty of Minnesota. Slow your mind down and just think about it for a minute. A) The Republican Convention is in Minneapolis/St.PaulB) Pawlenty is a solid conservative C) It puts Minnesota in play When I | Read More »

    I’m okay with KBH as the VP

    About Me:Before I get beat up for this diary, let me just clarify that I am a strong conservative and that I generally line up with Redstate. The two areas where I stray are 1) jobs going overseas (and no I have no good answers on what to do about it) and 2) that Carly Fiorinia is a good person/advisor/etc Read Below to see the | Read More »

    On Kay Bailey Hutchinson

    Erick’s Red Hot said No, John, Kay is not Acceptable. As a Texas voter, I agree. I think she’s a good (not great) Senator and may/may not be an improvement in the Governor’s mansion over Rick Perry, but her selection as VP will hurt the McCain campaign: She is Pro-choice. That will deflate the buzz in the social conservative ranks. We (many, not all) are | Read More »

    Keeping Secrets about McCain VP

    By this time last week two days before Obama had made his pick there was a lot of rumors/stories about it being Biden. Yet, the MSM praised the Obama campaign for being tight lipped (and thus well-organized), despite (the Obama campaign) being unable to figure out like Jake Trapper did that once Secret Service protection was given, the secret was out. Make no mistake that | Read More »
