Daniel Johnson, the editor of Standpoint has an interesting Op-Ed in today’s New York Sun: LONDON — Are American voters susceptible to blackmail? Ever since Sarah Palin lifted John McCain’s campaign, it is becoming increasingly clear that America will be branded racist if Europe does not wake up on November 5 to find that Barack […]
The more I dig into the history behind our current crisis the more outraged I become… Commenter Veretax writes: “I think the American people have had it with this situation where the middle-income people in our country are not protected from the ramifications of the risk-taking and the greed of these financial institutions,” Pelosi told […]
Update (Friday, September 19, 2008): Jake Tapper of ABC News is reporting that Bush Administration officials support Barack Obama’s version of events… Details below the fold… If this is true somebody’s got some splainin to do: OBAMA TRIED TO STALL GIS’ IRAQ WITHDRAWAL By AMIR TAHER, New York Post, September 15, 2008 WHILE campaigning in […]
Scroll for Updates Over all Governor Palin did quite well last night, she was relaxed, confident and showed tremendous grace under pressure. I was disappointed in her answers on the economy though. Frankly I think she blew it. She didn’t do anything to differentiate the McCain campaign from Bush administration. She could have easily done […]
I wasn’t going to jump into the fray over Barack Obama’s ‘Lipstick on a pig” comment… Frankly I don’t think they were intentionally or maliciously directed at Governor Palin. In politics though it’s not just what you say it’s what people hear. I understand the point Senator Obama was trying to make, I disagree with […]
A powerful message… Watch the whole thing.
Hat Tip: Grim @ Blackfive. Zell Miller much like Joe Lieberman places his love of country ahead of party politics. His speech at the Republican Convention in 2004 was one of the greatest political speeches I’ve ever heard. We are faced with no less an important choice this election so it’s worth remembering what he […]
One of the things that’s been bothering me about this presidential campaign is the constant droning of so and so doesn’t have any foreign policy experience. Where is it written that a presidential candidate has to have “foreign policy experience”? How much foreign policy experience did Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton or George W. Bush have […]
Everything old is new again or here we go again… Back to the 70’s. Every time I listen to democrats in talk about energy policy I feel I’ve been transported back to the 1970’s. Admittedly some of of their suggestions like making sure your tires are properly inflated or getting regular tuneups are basic commonsense […]
I’ve been digging around looking for something interesting to blog about over the past few days and so far I’ve come up dry. I could write about Barack Obama’s world tour but that’s been done to death and frankly I can’t think of anything hasn’t already been said. So I thought rather than leaving you […]
I’ve long considered The New Yorker to be nothing more than quasi-intellectual crap and their latest cover does nothing change that opinion. The cover, which is supposed to be satirical spoof of the fears and lies about Obama, depicts Barack & Michelle sharing a celebratory fist bump in the oval office. There’s a portrait of […]
The American Thinker is one my daily must reads and this mornings piece by Kyle-Anne Shiver “Could 2008 Be a McCain Landslide?” certainly has me thinking. I’m not ready to join Ms. Shiver out on that limb though, frankly I’m more pessimistic about John McCain’s prospects than she is. That said her analysis is definitely […]
