Hot Air is debating whether Obama is a hypocrite or not as
a new McCain campaign ad. I think the statement can be read
either way, but what about this statement from Obama?
As president I am going to eliminate capital gains taxes for
small businesses and start-ups. That’s how...
I bumped one of the bottom paragraphs up to the top,
so priceless is it. I wonder just how many of Obama’s Springfield
colleagues are going to end up in Ms. Dean’s book. I mean, she did
list the Democratic Party as her employer – by contract. Not a bad
gig if you’re an Illinois madam, I suspect! Too bad she’s been
busted by the Feds.
In a divorce document dated April 2007, Dean indicated
she was employed by the Illinois Democratic...
I find myself as much if not more concerned over the current
bankruptcy we’re seeing in Washington, than any new one being
announced on Wall Street. The whole thing is so ugly, I’m not even
interested in saying too much, so as to avoid an overly-vicious and
just as worthless rant.
While no one should want a major meltdown of the American and
world economies, there is a common sense rationale for simply
allowing it to burn. I see people going on about a trillion dollars
in value lost. But in any real sense, that value wasn’t really
America has been...
It’s come to this – with mug shot:
Actress Heather Locklear has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of a controlled substance in California’s upmarket Santa Barbara area, authorities said today.
I recently mentioned Obama’s need to play politics on the
current financial crisis during the recent debate while McCain
remained above it. It makes it fairly clear
Obama is not ready to lead America at large.
Pelosi’s speech in which she did the very same thing Obama did
Over the top –
good grief – maybe she just sent Obama a bracelet instead?
Barack Obama’s campaign earlier this month sought to find a rape
victim to appear in a campaign commercial, according to an email
obtained by Politico.
Kiersten Steward, director of public policy at the Family
Violence Prevention Fund,...
Just a peek into the largest political cesspool on the
via DailyKos discussing a
chemical irritant in a Dayton mosque. You’d think having above
a third-grade education would at least teach you how to spell
terrorist – evidently not.
Or maybe the US military is really to blame?
rash of stories in the media about the McCain campaign
allegedly over-reporting the size of crowds at their events?
How dare they say 23,000 if it was only 15,000 in
Check this out – Obama in VA: Suddenly I guess crowd size
doesn’t matter so much when it...
Without getting into the prudent, or imprudent nature
of the comments made by the two now former Hispanic McCain
cited below, there is a fascinating irony at work assuming one
wants to acknowledge it.
It is, after all, a bunch of White people deciding
what they should, or shouldn’t say about...
With Barack Obama fresh out of Chicago, Rezko
potentially talking and Obama’s years as a State Senator to be
investigated and in no time at all the AP comes up with this
attack on Palin?
She gladly accepted gifts from merchants: A free "awesome
facial" she raved about in a thank-you...
It took some reflection to realize, but I think most objective
observers will agree that Obama committed what should be seen as a
fatal mistake for any potential American political leader in
Friday’s debate. Were the media actually objective they would be
pointing it out, particularly as Democrats and Republicans
After being tipped to
this from TWS, I decided to do some News Googling – links
I’ve received phone calls in the last hour from two economists I
respect, one of them Larry Lindsey, the other in a position where
he’d prefer not to be named. Both have government
latest nonsense suggesting McCain said "Horsesh/t" during the
debate. Too bad Andy didn’t take the time to watch McCain’s lips
while he utters the first instance. He was saying "Of course not."
And as soon as he had the mic, he said, "I’m not going to set the
Given some of the states in play, as well as the state of the
race – this report out of Pennsylvania is slightly more positive
for McCain than it is for Obama. And it’s in, of all places,
the LA Times.
The group of 14 scored it for McCain by a...
