Eliminating fraud, waste and abuse
So the claim is that the hundreds of billions of dollars in Medicare savings will come from elimination of “fraud, waste and abuse.” And the Obama team will point to things like the Health Care Fraud Prevention and Enforcement Action Team (HEAT) and the Health Care Fraud and Abuse Control Account (HCFAC). They’ve got the small examples of savings in fraud and abuse, but clearly | Read More »
Winning the Election vs. Winning the Polls: Possible vs. Impossible
Many of us have been carefully watching for McCain to move ahead in this year’s national polling. However, we must realize that based on the turnout assumptions underlying all of these polls, it is nearly impossible for McCain to move ahead. That does not mean that the election is out of reach. This year’s polling assumes a turnout model that, if it were to hold | Read More »
If Obama wins, America is simply receiving the leader she deserves. Those of us who choose Obama’s neo-Communist vision do not deserve to live in a free society. If Obama wins, Republicans are simply receiving a well-deserved judgment. If only took two years for the 1994 new GOP majority to turn to incumbency protection games and corruption.

Obama’s “tax cut for 95% of working families” is baselined to the tax rate after the expiration of the Bush tax cuts. I.e. taxes will be raised, then he will lower them partially and selectively. It is kind of like when a store marks up all of its prices, then has a big sale. What a rip-off!
What don’t you know and how will you learn it?
The last question of Tuesday’s debate was submitted by Peggy Silva, a high school teacher from Amherst, New Hampshire. The question was “What don’t you know and how will you learn it?” According to today’s Nashua Telegraph: Tom Brokaw is a friend of Silva’s daughter’s father-in-law, who e-mailed Brokaw right away to tell him who asked the final question. Small world? Silva also has been | Read More »
Choosing an effective Ayers message
I am worried that the GOP is on the verge of misplaying the Ayers issue. This is something that should be a big liability for Obama. However, many of the persuadable voters out there want to believe in a political messiah who will bring us back to the mythical fat dumb and happy 90′s. People are looking for a reason to give Obama a pass | Read More »
