Obama, Freddie Mac And Fannie Mae

Meant to be short and sweet and to the point.

No, Obama Is A Hypocrite

September 30, 2008
By

Hot Air is debating whether Obama is a hypocrite or not as professed in 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...

Springfield, Illinois Madam’s Employer – Democratic Party

September 30, 2008
By

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...

Which Is The More Bankrupt, Wall St. Or DC?

September 30, 2008
By

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.

I...

Demand tough people.

Okay, rough may be a better word.

The Case For Letting It Burn

September 29, 2008
By

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 there.

America has been...

Make-Up!

By

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.

ObaPelosi: Not Ready To Lead

September 29, 2008
By

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.

Now comes Pelosi’s speech in which she did the very same thing Obama did right...

Obama: Do You Know A Good Rape Victim We Can Use?

September 29, 2008
By

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,...

Kos Diarist: Are Rednecks, Or Soldiers Trying To Kill Muslims In The US?

September 29, 2008
By

Just a peek into the largest political cesspool on the web – 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?

I don’t...

More Obvious Bias From ABC

September 29, 2008
By

Remember the 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 Virginia, etc!!

Check this out – Obama in VA: Suddenly I guess crowd size doesn’t matter so much when it...

What’s Wrong With This Picture?

September 29, 2008
By

Without getting into the prudent, or imprudent nature of the comments made by the two now former Hispanic McCain officials 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...

This Is What The AP Does?

September 28, 2008
By

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...

Some Reading

September 28, 2008
By

Somewhat buried in another project or two just now but I’ll be back later today.

Fausta has a round up post here.

Is Arnold all about protecting dogs?

Mark Tapscott does a side-by-side comparison on the finance-related legislation.

Meanwhile, a question – did Obama wear that bracelet regularly before the debate? He couldn’t recall the...

Perhaps You Missed It? Obama Proved Himself Unfit To Lead During Debate

September 28, 2008
By

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 were...

Relentless

September 27, 2008
By

Theya ren’t going to rest until they believe they’ve destroyed Sarah Palin.

Snappy comeback – hey, I know, Obama might not be a citizen, after all.

Fortis Going, Brits Talk Of Nationalizing Another Large Bank?

September 27, 2008
By

After being tipped to this from TWS, I decided to do some News Googling – links below:

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 experience,...

Sullivan Finally Cracked – Now He’s Hearing Things

September 27, 2008
By

Sullivan’s 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 WH visitor’s...

Paul Newman Dead At 83

September 27, 2008
By

Plenty of links via Google News, I’m sure.

On August 23rd I mentioned that he recently went racing – they called the original item – Last Laps.

Rest in Peace.

Newman always seemed to be a a class act. And he did some terrific work, on screen and off.

There are some truly terrific anecdotes...

PA Debate Reactions Slightly Favor McCain

September 27, 2008
By

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...
