bad strategery

Are Americans really 'selfish' if they don't want to pay higher taxes?

If I was an undecided voter going into this final weekend before election day, and I heard Obama call me 'selfish' for wanting to keep more of my own money, I'd instantaneously become a McCain-Palin voter.

go john

Dead heats in Missouri and North Carolina going into the final weekend, suggest that McCain's support is huge in rural areas of both states.

restless racists, rednecks


How sweet would it be for Bill Russell (above) to defeat the corrupt, anti-American liar John Murtha?

Russell, an Iraq war vet, has out-raised Murtha, leaving the old bastard begging for $1 million so he can compete.

This is what happens when you call your own constituents racists and rednecks.

lowering the bar

During Obama's infomercial he mentioned that people making $200,000 won't pay any taxes.

Last week he said the same thing about people making $250,000.

Meanwhile, I heard Biden yesterday talking about people making $150,000 paying higher taxes.

Isn't it time -- six days before a presidential election -- for the Democrats to get their stories straight?

Let's be clear: Obama is a liar.

30 minutes

Obama's going to address the nation tonight with his paid 30 minute infomercial. It's been all Obama, all the time, everywhere, crammed down our throats for the past 20 months.

Can you say overkill?

incumbency

Since there is no incumbent this year, who is the challenger, McCain or Obama?

McCain's party controls a lame duck White House, while Obama's hold the majority in Congress. I'd say the Democrats are the incumbents.

Obama has led in the polls most of the past four to six weeks and he's considered to be the favorite going into election day six days from today. McCain is the underdog, so it's fair to call him the challenger.

In close elections, the undecided voters usually break for the challenger. Will that be the case this year?

born alive

Everyone considering a vote for Obama should consider this.

'suck it in'

Martha Stewart wants us to pay higher taxes. How nice of her, a woman who never has to concern herself with paying a mortgage or replacing an ailing car or buying a new furnace, to tell me that I should make do with less just so she can assuage her Liberal guilt.

tackle somebody, dammit

But, the best news so far today is that the sucky, chickenbleep San Diego Chargers finally, mercifully, at long last have fired defensive coordinator Ted Cottrell.

Ron Rivera should have been the guy in the first place. Actually, I wanted him to be the head coach.

Rivera's definitely going to have them hitting some people.

over 9,000 again

The Dow finished up 889 today. Good news. Let's keep it going...

media bias


McCain is demanding that the LA Times release a video of Obama attending a party for a Palestinian activist in '03.

Meet Rashid Khalidi, a "friend and frequent dinner companion" and former University of Chicago colleague of Obama's.

Of course, the LAT won't comply with McCain's demand, yet another glaring example of media bias this presidential election season. Funny, the LAT had no compunction whatsoever about releasing an off-the-record audio recording of California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in '06.

Politicians get different treatment by the press. Republicans always get smeared and slimed, Democrats always get a pass.

narrowing

Obama 49% McCain 47% among traditional voters, those who have voted before and are expected to be pattern voters, i.e., reliably Republican or reliably Democrat.

provable bias

The Politico writes today about how bad the McCain campaign sucks. That, somehow is the reason for all the glowing coverage Obama's received.
"A couple weeks back, Politico managing editor Bill Nichols sent out a note to the campaign team urging people to cough up more story ideas that took a skeptical look at the campaign tactics and policy proposals of the Democrat, who is likely to be president three months from now. As it happened, the response was a trickle."
And that alone isn't clear evidence of a bias? Are you kidding me?
"Reporters obsess about personalities and process, about whose staff are jerks or whether they seem like decent folks, about who has a great stump speech or is funnier in person than they come off in public, about whether Michigan is in play or off the table. This is the flip side of the fact of how much we care about the horse race — we don’t care that much about our own opinions of which candidate would do more for world peace or tax cuts."
Exactly. That proves my point. 'Not caring' about tax cuts means they don't report the facts about what Obama would do on taxes. Thus, Obama and Biden can lie all damn day about cutting taxes on 95% of America and journalists never call them on it.

And as I've written before, it would seem that McCain would have gotten better coverage, given that he has a better nicer, cleaner plane and a more courteous, considerate and helpful staff.

Look, 'tolerant' Liberals. These are my people in LA, too. Their politics sucks, but I still love them.

Imagine creating an effigy of Obama, lynching it on your front yard and calling it 'Halloween art'?

happy halloween

The Democrats want to take our 401K's? What? It's true. The Democrats are exploring plans to take your 401K, restore it to it's August, pre-stock-market crash amount, then contribute $600 bucks a year and invest it in meager 3%-yielding government bonds. How generous!
"Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA) said recently that Democrats had better ideas for the $80 billion that Americans contribute to their 401(k) plans each year. "We have to start thinking about whether or not we want to continue to invest that $80 billion for a policy that's not doing what we say it should."
This is the same crazy anti-American Jim McDermott who went to Baghdad and got to be buddies with Saddam Hussein.

For all of you considering voting for the Marxists Obama-Biden, are you sure? Have you really thought this through, spreading the wealth, all that crap? Do you want Obama, Reid and Pelosi -- socialists, controlling every aspect of our lives?

President McCain and Vice President Palin.

brainiac

The former editor-in-chief of Ms. Magazine Elaine Lafferty, a pro choice Democrat and a consultant to the McCain campaign, interviewed Sarah Palin and liked her.
"Palin is more than a “quick study”; I'd heard rumors around the campaign of her photographic memory and, frankly, I watched it in action. She sees. She processes. She questions, and only then, she acts. What is often called her “confidence” is actually a rarity in national politics: I saw a woman who knows exactly who she is."
Of course. Why would this surprise anyone? She's a governor of a state. Agree with her, disagree with her, love her or hate her. Don't call her stupid. She isn't, certainly. Anyone who says she is, is stupid.

colorado, new hampshire, maine

And speaking of Hugh Hewitt, his radio producer, Duane Patterson writes an excellent piece about the trustworthiness of the media.

Patterson has an interesting quote from Virginia Virtucon on the state of presidential polling as well. It's long, but well worth reading if you are a McCain-Palin supporter.
"I was having dinner a night ago with a friend of mine who is a statistician for a well-regarded private polling company. They do some work for Republicans in California, but most of the work they do is for Democrats or Democrat-leaning operations (Unions, etc.). Anyway, her shop was retained to do a few Presidential polls for targetted states on behalf of a union so the union could decide where to spend their ad dollars for the last week. They did Ohio, Florida, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada and Missouri. After mocking the hell out of the voter id spreads used by Rassmussen, Zogby, etc. (and this is coming from a committed Dem who will be voting for Barry O) she said the results of their polling lead her to believe that McCain will definitely win FL, OH, NC, MO and NV. She says Obama definitely wins New Mexico. She said that Colorado and New Hampshire were absolute dead heats. She said she thinks there is a 55% chance Obama holds on in Pennsylvania and a 75% chance McCain wins Virginia. She absolutely laughed at the public polls showing Obama leading Virginia–and pointed out that all of those polls rely on Dem turnout being +4 and as much as +7, when in 2006, Republicans actually had the advantage by +3. She also pointed out that the numbers for Obama in SWVA look absolutely awful and that McCain is running 10 points better then Allen did in NoVa.
"Anyway, her companies conclusion is that the election will come down to Colorado, New Hampshire and the Republican leaning district in Maine, which in her opinion might very well decide the Presidency (apparently the district in Nebraska that Obama thought he might be able to get is now off the table). She said she has very little doubt that the public polling is part of a “concerted voter suppression effort” by the MSM. She said IBD/TIPP was the only outfit doing public polling that was “worth a bucket of warm piss."
I'm not encouraging anyone to take the above at face value. But I do urge people to take in account the regular practice oversampling of Democrats in these polls and consider this may be a big reason the Magic Negro has such a big lead in some national polling.

heavenly

Sad news today about the passing of the brilliant political writer/talk show host Dean Barnett.

more tough questions

First, Orlando, now Philadelphia's CBS 3.

Of course, they aren't tough questions. They are they types of questions all politicians should answer during a presidential campaign. Up until just recently, Jobama had only softball questions thrown at them.

guilty

The Senate's longest-serving Senator, Alaska's Ted Stevens (above) was found guilty on seven felony corruption charges today. The corrupt Stevens is an embarrassment to his state and to the Republican Party.

[God help us, but maybe that filibuster-proof Senate is doable for the Democrats, after all.]

Americans should be reminded that this is the same type of stuff that Governor Sarah Palin was up against in Alaska. She outed and then defeated a corrupt former Governor, Ted Murkowski.

If Stevens' conviction can be seen as a victory for clean, honest, transparent government, then Governor Palin should be recognized as a standard bearer for governmental reform.

questions

There is a real television journalist out there asking questions of a Democrat. Kudos to WFTV's Barbara West in Orlando, Florida. Give her a raise. Give her a Peabody.

If there were more journalists like West quizzing American politicians, Obama and Biden would have been disqualified from consideration for the nation's highest offices a long time ago. Few Democrats, if any, would ever be elected.

reflection

Obama thinks the United States Constitution is fundamentally flawed.

Do we really want/need a President who believes that our founding documents are crap?

obama, in his own words

Obama, back in 2001, talking about income redistribution.

'taking matters into our own hands'

US special forces attack inside Syria, along the Iraqi border, targeting the 'foreign fighter network' that supplies terrorists to Iraq.

The Syrian/Iraqi border has been described as an 'uncontrolled gateway.'

From the AP:
"A Syrian government statement said the helicopters attacked the Sukkariyeh Farm near the town of Abu Kamal, five miles inside the Syrian border. Four helicopters attacked a civilian building under construction shortly before sundown and fired on workers inside, the statement said."

"A resident of the nearby village of Hwijeh said some of the helicopters landed and troops exited the aircraft and fired on a building. He said the aircraft flew along the Euphrates River into the area of farms and several brick factories. The witness spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the information."

It's high time we did this. Kudos to Bush. This is why Republicans own the national security issue.

Pacifists like Obama would never do something bold, vital like this. They'd talk about it, of course, but they'd never do it. Or, after talking about it endlessly, they'd try to do it, but it would fail. Think Jimmy Carter and the pathetic attempt to rescue our hostages in Iran.

republican disdain

'Many' at the corrupt, illegitimate 'human rights' organization United Nations are hoping for an Obama presidency.

The corrupt, illegitimate 'human rights' organization that stood by and allowed the genocide in Rwanda is hoping for an Obama presidency.

The corrupt, illegitimate 'human rights' organization that failed to stop the massacre in Bosnia is rooting for an Obama presidency.

The corrupt, illegitimate 'human rights' organization that enabled the dictator Saddam Hussein to murder his own citizens in Iraq and even received kickbacks from Hussein is cheering for an Obama presidency.

From the WaPo:
"An informal survey of more than two dozen U.N. staff members and foreign delegates showed that the overwhelming majority would prefer that Obama win the presidency, saying they think that the Democrat would usher in a new agenda of multilateralism after an era marked by Republican disdain for the world body."
Republican disdain? Is it any wonder? The UN doesn't do anything productive. Rather, it protects criminals, rewards bad, illegal behavior which has resulted in the needless deaths of millions.
"It would be hard to find anybody, I think, at the U.N. who would not believe that Obama would be a considerable improvement over any other alternative," said William H. Luers, executive director of the United Nations Association. "It's been a bad eight years, and there is a lot of bad feeling over it."
A 'bad eight years'? Yeah, anal exams aren't too much fun. Clearly the UN is an organization screaming for wide ranging reforms. The Bush administration went on the offensive, calling for aggressive reforms five years ago, changes that would have made the UN relevant again. Too bad it didn't work.

ridiculous

How do you cut taxes for 95% of Americans when 40% already don't pay any taxes?

This claim alone, a bald faced lie, should disqualify Obama from the Presidency.

enemy of the state

Why are middle income people falling for the Obama BS? Using goverment computers in attacking Joe the Plumber? A middle class guy all because he opposes higher taxes?

"Public records requested by The Dispatch disclose that information on Wurzelbacher's driver's license or his sport-utility vehicle was pulled from the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles database three times shortly after the debate.

"Information on Wurzelbacher was accessed by accounts assigned to the office of Ohio Attorney General Nancy H. Rogers, the Cuyahoga County Child Support Enforcement Agency and the Toledo Police Department.

"It has not been determined who checked on Wurzelbacher, or why. Direct access to driver's license and vehicle registration information from BMV computers is restricted to legitimate law enforcement and government business."

The truth is that the Republicans are the party of the middle class. The Democrats are the party of the rich and the elite in America, yet the perception is quite the opposite. The Left and the MSM continue to advance the myth that Democrats are the champions of the little guy, Joe and Jill America.

Regardless of who you are, rich, poor, black, white, male, female, if you challenge, question or pose a threat to an elected Democrat in any way you will be targeted and your reputation will be tarnished, your integrity impugned, your veracity undermined. Democrats search and destroy.

Want some quick examples? President Bush, Vice President Cheney, Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich and Joe the Plumber.

I've never been one to hate the American government. I have a feeling that might change. Enemies of the Magic Negro beware if he somehow manages to cheat, steal and win the presidency in 10 days.

photo op

Barack went to Hawaii to visit his sick, dying grandmother. But he doesn't want to 'get into the details too much' about her illness. She broke her hip, right? What 'details' could there be? If this was McCain's mother, the MSM would be filing FOIA requests fast and furious to find out about her medical condition.

Curious too, there seems to be disagreement about her birthday. Press reports all week claimed it was Saturday. I heard Obama say it was Saturday but then I heard Michelle say it was Sunday.

My gal pal Lisa tells me I'm being cynical, but, c'mon.

Obama is so concerned and distraught about his granny being 'gravely ill,' he suspends his campaign to visit her but then only has two quick visits with her? Why is he leaving before her birthday? She might die before the election, right? Why not stay for what could be her final birthday?

What the hell is he doing preening for the cameras, looking sad and depressed on cue? Why is he outside walking around campaigning instead of saying goodbye to the woman who raised him?

Let's call this what it is: A big sympathy play, a planned photo op, a contrived bunch of bullcrap. Much of this is phony, just like Obama himself.

P.S. What if she dies next week or on election eve? How much is he gonna milk it?

purge

The idiotic Barney Frank wants to cut military spending 25% while America is fighting two wars.

'projections'

According to Politico, NBC News is now 'projecting an Obama win.' This 11 days before election day.

In breathless reporting, Mike Allen, who, when mentioning the Democrats this past Tuesday on Dennis Miller's radio show referred to them as 'we,' says the widely respected NBC electoral map has now moved Colorado and Virginia into the 'leaning Obama' column.

I'm confused. Only now is the race 'over?' NBC's Chuck Todd declared the race 'over' about a month ago.

Should we really believe these partisans?

cheesesteak

The McCain campaign is counting on winning the Keystone State, but Obama seems to have the state well in hand.

Read the WSJ piece, "McCain Doesn't Look Competitive in PA."

In '04, Bush did well in every part of Pennsylvania, except Philadelphia, but still lost.

In '06, many state Republicans lost to Democrats.

This time around, registered Democrats outnumber Republicans by 1.2 million, which is double the '04 registration difference.

Why all this change? Was it Bush? The Iraq war? Out of control spending? No. Liberals from New York moved into the state. Damn New Yorkers.

'joyful challenge'

Governor Palin gave what was labeled her first major policy address today in the all important swing state of Pennsylvania today.

The topic? Special needs children, what Palin describes as 'a joyful challenge,' obviously a subject near and dear to her family.

In her Pittsburgh speech she outlined the McCain campaign plan to fully fund the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

Under the McCain-Palin plan, parents would choose where the federal funding would go in terms of school choice for their children (public, private, religious or secular)

Back in 1975, Washington DC committed to funding 40% of educating special needs kids, with the individual states picking up the remaining 60%. Unfortunately, that never occurred.

Now, I can kind of relate to what the Palin's are going through. I'm a special needs guy myself, and one of the reasons that I respect and support the Governor is the fact that she made a decision not to abort her Down's Syndrome baby.

I doubt, quite frankly, that I would have had the courage to do the same.

spread the crap

To his credit, Obama doesn't regret the 'spreading the wealth' comment he made to Joe the Plumber. He's being honest. He believes in income redistribution.

But Obama continues to be dishonest about the Bush tax cuts, about McCain and about the past eight years.

I strongly disagree with the notion that the role of the federal government is to take money from the middle and upper class and give it to the lower class. If you want money, get a job. Get four jobs. Just don't rely on Washington DC to provide for you economically, unless you really, do need help.

My advice to the next President? Extend the tax cuts. Make them permanent and then get out of the way. Provide incentives not regulations. Protect the country from nutty Arab terrorists. Let the American people do their thing.

The Dow is on track for its worst month ever. Thank you, Democrats. Thank you Barney Frank. Thank you Chris Dodd. Thank you Barack Obama. Thank you Maxine Waters. Thank you Greg Meeks. Thank you Frank Raines. Thank you Jim Johnson. Thank you Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Investors are forward thinking. They are panicked about an Obama/Reid/Pelosi-led federal government. Investors are looking six, nine, twelve months out and the prospect of higher taxes and trade protectionism are scary propositions, on top of recession, slowing corporate profits, job cuts and a global slowdown.

The Democrats got us into this. Why would any thinking person vote for a Democrat in 2008? Why would any thinking person trust the Democrats to get us out of this crisis?

A nod to history: On this day, 79 years ago: Black Thursday, 1929, which led to the Great Depression.

staying sane

It's good to see that Krauthammer hasn't lost his mind. Or as he says, he's 'bucking the rush of wet-fingered conservatives leaping to Obama before they're left out in the cold without a single state dinner for the next four years. I'd rather lose an election that lose my bearings.'

Should the 44th President be someone who has been cramming the past year, learning ropes? Or should the new guy be the smartest, most engaged foreign policy expert in the entire United States Senate?

Sane, intelligent, informed people will pull the lever for McCain.

early birds

Gallup says early voting -- thus far -- is split evenly between McCain and Obama.

diva

I've had the pleasure of meeting and/or becoming close friends with a number of fellow bloggers these past four years. One, I dated for about six months...

Strange. I just had the urge to visit her blog for the first time in a long, long time and I saw an old comment I'd once left behind. I read it, then re-read it, amazed that I would write such a thing.

I'm trying to remember the place in my life that I was when I wrote that. It's almost like a parallel universe. Some of it I recall clearly, but other parts of it are just a total blur.

Then, again, like it was yesterday, I'm in San Francisco at night, walking down Columbus to this bar, Vesuvio, and ordering an Anchor Steam with my girl and a nice couple from Australia we'd met at dinner just 90 minutes before.

It's almost like I'm seeing those words for the first time when I see them now. Weird. Life was so much simpler then. But it wasn't that simple... She was married, two kids and we had this long distance thing going. It was chaotic and awesome and painful.

But we had six months.

hollywood palin?

From the Hollywood Reporter:
"Hollywood bigwigs are convening strategy sessions of their own. Their goal: finding the ideal on-air vehicle for the vp candidate if and when she exits politics.

"Love her or hate her -- there doesn't seem to be much middle ground with Palin -- the 44-year-old hockey mom has captured the public imagination in a way no politician has since, well, Barack Obama.


"But as more and more polls cast doubt on the McCain-Palin ticket, producers and agents across the entertainment world are discussing possibilities for capitalizing on her fame, ranging from an Oprah-style syndicated talk show to a Sean Hannity-like perch in cable news or on radio.

"Any television person who sees the numbers when she appears on anything would say Sarah Palin would be great," said veteran morning-show producer Steve Friedman, citing the double-digit ratings gains her appearances on "Saturday Night Live" and "CBS Evening News" generated. "The passion she has on each side, love and hate, makes television people say, 'Wow, imagine the viewership.' "

orson scott card

My buddy Pablo called me yesterday to tell me about Orson Scott Card, (above) a liberal writer. Today, I found a link to Card's brilliant column about the current state of journalism.
"If you do not tell the truth about the Democrats — including Barack Obama — and do so with the same energy you would use if the miscreants were Republicans — then you are not journalists by any standard."
Whoa. I kept reading.

"This housing crisis didn't come out of nowhere. It was not a vague emanation of the evil Bush administration.

"It was a direct result of the political decision, back in the late 1990s, to loosen the rules of lending so that home loans would be more accessible to poor people. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were authorized to approve risky loans.

"What is a risky loan? It's a loan that the recipient is likely not to be able to repay.

"This was completely foreseeable and in fact many people did foresee it. One political party, in Congress and in the executive branch, tried repeatedly to tighten up the rules. The other party blocked every such attempt and tried to loosen them.

"Furthermore, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae were making political contributions to the very members of Congress who were allowing them to make irresponsible loans. (Though why quasi-federal agencies were allowed to do so baffles me. It's as if the Pentagon were allowed to contribute to the political campaigns of Congressmen who support increasing their budget.)

"Isn't there a story here? Doesn't journalism require that you who produce our daily paper tell the truth about who brought us to a position where the only way to keep confidence in our economy was a $700 billion bailout? Aren't you supposed to follow the money and see which politicians were benefiting personally from the deregulation of mortgage lending?

"I have no doubt that if these facts had pointed to the Republican Party or to John McCain as the guilty parties, you would be treating it as a vast scandal. "Housing-gate," no doubt. Or "Fannie-gate."

"Instead, it was Senator Christopher Dodd and Congressman Barney Frank, both Democrats, who denied that there were any problems, who refused Bush administration requests to set up a regulatory agency to watch over Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and who were still pushing for these agencies to go even further in promoting sub-prime mortgage loans almost up to the minute they failed."

This guy sounds like me. He must be a Republican, right?

"These are facts. This financial crisis was completely preventable. The party that blocked any attempt to prevent it was ... the Democratic Party. The party that tried to prevent it was ... the Republican Party.

"Yet when Nancy Pelosi accused the Bush administration and Republican deregulation of causing the crisis, you in the press did not hold her to account for her lie. Instead, you criticized Republicans who took offense at this lie and refused to vote for the bailout!

"What? It's not the liar, but the victims of the lie who are to blame?

"Now let's follow the money ... right to the presidential candidate who is the number-two recipient of campaign contributions from Fannie Mae.

"And after Freddie Raines, the CEO of Fannie Mae who made $90 million while running it into the ground, was fired for his incompetence, one presidential candidate's campaign actually consulted him for advice on housing.

"If that presidential candidate had been John McCain, you would have called it a major scandal and we would be getting stories in your paper every day about how incompetent and corrupt he was.

"But instead, that candidate was Barack Obama, and so you have buried this story, and when the McCain campaign dared to call Raines an "adviser" to the Obama campaign — because that campaign had sought his advice — you actually let Obama's people get away with accusing McCain of lying, merely because Raines wasn't listed as an official adviser to the Obama campaign."

Nope, he's a Democrat.

"You would never tolerate such weasely nit-picking from a Republican.

"If you who produce our local daily paper actually had any principles, you would be pounding this story, because the prosperity of all Americans was put at risk by the foolish, short-sighted, politically selfish, and possibly corrupt actions of leading Democrats, including Obama.

"If you who produce our local daily paper had any personal honor, you would find it unbearable to let the American people believe that somehow Republicans were to blame for this crisis.

"There are precedents. Even though President Bush and his administration never said that Iraq sponsored or was linked to 9/11, you could not stand the fact that Americans had that misapprehension — so you pounded us with the fact that there was no such link. (Along the way, you created the false impression that Bush had lied to them and said that there was a connection.)

"If you had any principles, then surely right now, when the American people are set to blame President Bush and John McCain for a crisis they tried to prevent, and are actually shifting to approve of Barack Obama because of a crisis he helped cause, you would be laboring at least as hard to correct that false impression.

"Your job, as journalists, is to tell the truth. That's what you claim you do, when you accept people's money to buy or subscribe to your paper.

"But right now, you are consenting to or actively promoting a big fat lie — that the housing crisis should somehow be blamed on Bush, McCain, and the Republicans. You have trained the American people to blame everything bad — even bad weather — on Bush, and they are responding as you have taught them to.

"If you had any personal honor, each reporter and editor would be insisting on telling the truth — even if it hurts the election chances of your favorite candidate.

"Because that's what honorable people do. Honest people tell the truth even when they don't like the probable consequences. That's what honesty means . That's how trust is earned."

This is unbelievable.

"Barack Obama is just another politician, and not a very wise one. He has revealed his ignorance and naivete time after time — and you have swept it under the rug, treated it as nothing.

"Meanwhile, you have participated in the borking of Sarah Palin, reporting savage attacks on her for the pregnancy of her unmarried daughter — while you ignored the story of John Edwards's own adultery for many months.

"So I ask you now: Do you have any standards at all? Do you even know what honesty means?

"Is getting people to vote for Barack Obama so important that you will throw away everything that journalism is supposed to stand for?"

This piece gets my vote for op-ed of the year. It's good to know there is at least one honest (and I use this as a compliment) Democratic journalist in America today. Kudos to Mr. Scott Card.

unacceptable behavior

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) told the lunatic, loudmouth, squishy Liberal Chris Matthews last week that she's concerned about Obama being 'anti-American.'

So am I. The Magic Negro seems to take at a premium the opinions of Bush-hating foreigners, precisely the type of cowardly pass-the-responsibility, pass-the-buck politicians I don't respect.

We protect, feed, clothe and liberate the world, footing the bills completely and the world still hates us. They are anti-American, or at the least, they are extremely jealous of America. Either way, they'd love to see a less powerful, a less prosperous version of the United States and that's why the world loves Obama. His policies will result in a less powerful, less prosperous version of the United States.

That, and he's black. They like him because of that, too.

The Democrats are anti-American. They oppose all matters of national security. How can that fact alone not lead to the opinion that they are anti-American? Democrats favor the rights of terrorists and non-citizens over the rights of American citizens. How can we not question their patriotism?

Anyway, back to Bachmann. From all that I know, she's a decent public servant who has represented her district with honor and distinction. (And, she's pretty hot.) I saw her speak at the Republican National Convention and she was impressive. And the last time I checked, she has every right as an American to voice her opinion about the presidential candidates on a cable television talk show, right? Free speech?

Apparently not since the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) has pulled re-election money away from Bachmann in wake of her comments.


I've been saying for years, Liberals tend to act like children when they are angry or displeased. Sometimes they even resort to violence to show their displeasure. The homes of six Minnesota Congressional respresenatives, both Democrats and Republicans, were vandalized, including Rep. Bachmann, Senators Norm Coleman (his home, above) and Amy Klobuchar, Reps. John Kline, Jim Ramstad and Keith Ellison.

just in time...maybe

The most accurate poll in '04 -- the IBD/TIPP Tracking Poll -- has it 44.8% Obama to 43.7% McCain.
"McCain has cut into Obama's lead for a second day and is now just 1.1 points behind. The spread was 3.7 Wednesday and 6.0 Tuesday. The Republican is making headway with middle- and working- class voters, and has surged 10 points in two days among those earning between $30,000 and $75,000. He has also gone from an 11-point deficit to a 9-point lead among Catholics."
I suspect we'll continue to see a tightening as we get closer. Remember, the pollsters want to be right in their predictions, otherwise they'll become irrelevant next election cycle.

McCain will probably be up 5% in some polls next week just as a counter-balance to all these crazy numbers.

I'm out there telling my friends and people I meet that 'spreading the wealth around' is un-American. McCain and Palin are resonating. Finally. We just have to keep plugging away.

'aggressive democrats'

Am I afraid of putting a McCain sticker on my car? No. I'd just don't want to have deal with getting my car fixed as a result of the actions of an intolerant, juvenile Liberal moron vandal.

How's that for a sad state of affairs? Freedom of speech is being abridged because Liberals can't/won't accept dissent.

'Aggressive Democrats?' Is that what they're calling it?

pennsylvania 12

The corrupt, lying, anti American racist John Murtha is locked in a tight re-election battle with retired Army Lt. Col. Bill Russell. According to a new poll, Murtha only leads Russell by four points.

How great would it be to send that smug bastard Murtha packing?

liberal hypocrisy

The New York Times once opined about an up-and-coming female political candidate:
"Where is it written that only senators are qualified to become President?... Where is it written that governors and mayors [are] too local, too provincial?... Presidential candidates have always chosen their running mates for reasons of practical demography, not idealized democracy.... What a splendid system, we say to ourselves, that takes little-known men, tests them in high office and permits them to grow into statesmen.... Why shouldn't a little-known woman have the same opportunity to grow?... [T]he indispensable credential for a Woman Who [sic] is the same as for a Man Who [sic] - one who helps the ticket."
This was written about Geraldine Ferraro in 1984, yet, somehow the NYT finds Sarah Palin offensive in 2008. I don't recall Ferraro's 'youth' and 'vibrancy' being described as a negative against Mondale.

change

Talk about change. Biden hasn't fielded questions since September 10, when he again made a fool of himself by saying 'Hillary would have been a better VP choice.'

Meanwhile, Governor Palin has become the most accessible of all four federal candidates.

And here's an amazingly pertinent piece from Democratic consultant Kirsten Powers on the MSM's blatant Obama-Biden bias.

Money quote:

"On the stump recently, Sen. Biden declared he had "three words" for what the nation needs: "J-O-B-S."

"Lucky for him, his name isn't Dan Quayle, or that would have followed him for the rest of his career."

Had Palin said that, or that 'Hezbollah had been driven out of Lebanon,' or that 'Obama's election would provoke an international incident because of his inexperience and even Obama's biggest supporters won't be reassured by his response,' the calls from the press for her removal from the Republican ticket would have been immediate and intense. But, since it's just 'Biden being Biden,' the MSM fails to report Biden's obvious blunders.

More from Powers:
"Part of the problem is their "Obama love," but we're also seeing the media elite's belief - prejudice - that anyone with an R behind their name is dumb. So, if they say something dumb, they must be dumb. A Democrat, like Biden, can make wildly inaccurate or outrageous comments and they are ignored because the TV and press insiders feel they "know who he really is."
Yeah, we know exactly who Biden is, a plagiarizer. And this is the guy who brings 'gravitas' to Obama?

really?

Newsflash: Media coverage of McCain-Palin has been incredibly negative and regularly dishonest.

Some recent examples:

Saturday Night Live's treatment of Todd Palin.

The NYT ripped Cindy McCain.

CNN, during an interview with Governor Palin, misquoted the National Review's comments about Palin.

all over the place

Do we believe the polls or not? Obama up 14? Obama up 9? Obama up 3? Obama up 1? Even?

What's the margin or error of the poll? Is the poll sampling 'likely' voters or 'registered' voters?

Is the poll oversampling black Democrats and undersampling Republicans?

Michael Barone writes today that 'political polling is inherently imperfect.'

The one thing about polls that we can say with certainty is that they all wish to be correct at the end. That's why we see, and will continue to see, a narrowing.

president obama?

The Bonehead Joe Biden is stating the obvious. Every president is tested early in his term by some type of international crisis.

With Bush it was the American spy plane violating Chinese airspace.

The problem with Obama, in addition to his lack of experience, is also his lack of character. He's got a 20 year history of consorting with bad people in his private life, so there's no reason to believe that he's a good judge of character in other people. How's he gonna state down Putin or Jong Il or the Chinese guy?

Presidents need to have a good BS meter, but, unfortunately, Obama is full of BS himself. If elected, he begins his term being a dishonest broker.

You betcha. With Palin aboard, SNL's ratings this weekend were through the roof -- the highest in 14 years.

san diego union-tribune

My hometown paper endorsed McCain for President. It's well worth reading.
"In our analysis, Republican candidate John McCain has a documented record of enlightened leadership in Washington – leadership that often has run counter to the status quo and challenged the folly of senior members of his own party. McCain never has been a conventional politician. He thinks for himself and acts on what he believes to be in the best interests of the nation, and not necessarily in the interests of his party or his own political fortunes. In an era of dismaying partisan paralysis in Washington, McCain has stood out as a bipartisan force, best illustrated by his collaboration with liberal Democratic lion Edward Kennedy on a comprehensive solution to America's immigration dilemma.

"When the Great Depression struck in the early 1930s, Washington responded with misguided tax hikes and trade barriers that only exacerbated the crisis. Today, in the face of renewed economic turmoil of historic proportions, Obama proposes to boost the capital gains levy – a particularly onerous tax on business expansion and job growth – and increase the tax rate on dividends, which account for a big chunk of Americans' retirement earnings.

"Obama touts his economic policies as providing tax cuts for 95 percent of Americans. In truth, he would achieve this only by refunding the Social Security taxes of the millions of Americans who don't make enough to pay income taxes, while imposing even higher rates on wage earners who already pay a disproportionate share of income taxes. Thus, Obama's “share the wealth” thrust would penalize the most productive, job-creating elements of society in order to reward the least productive. This is a political gambit, not sound economic policy. Which is why a joint statement from 100 leading economists, including five Nobel laureates, declares that Obama's plans “defy both economic reason and economic experience.”

"And what would McCain do? The GOP nominee proposes to make all of President Bush's tax cuts permanent. This includes maintaining the capital gains levy at the current rate of 15 percent. Meantime, he would chop the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 25 percent, and broaden business tax deductions for equipment and new technology investments. Rather than be a drag on the economy, McCain's policies would stimulate job creation and growth, the key to healthy government revenues in the long run.

"Lastly, Obama and McCain differ sharply on international trade, an issue that is critically important to San Diego. As the 100 influential economists note, rising exports have done far more this year to stimulate growth than the phony stimulus package passed by Congress. San Diego, perched on the U.S.-Mexico border and the Pacific Rim, relies increasingly on global trade. Yet Obama would constrain international commerce by “renegotiating” the most successful of all trade pacts, the North American Free Trade Agreement. He also opposes pending trade accords with Central America and Colombia. McCain, on the other hand, has supported every conceivable agreement to reduce the barriers to open international trade.

"On Election Day, Americans historically have voted their pocketbooks. This innate common sense is more important than ever in stormy economic times. At this critical moment, America needs John McCain in the Oval Office."

powell

Colin Powell endorsed Obama this morning, calling him a 'transformational figure,' but he also said that McCain would be a good President.

That's some endorsement. He's just going with the black guy because it will 'electrify the world.'

Powell (also black) went on to say that he 'would have difficulty with two more conservative appointments to the Supreme Court, but that's what we'd be looking at in a McCain administration."

How Republican of you, Colin. End the charade and re-register as Democrat.

McCain, meanwhile, has been endorsed by distinguished public servants like Henry Kissinger, Alexander Haig, James Baker and Lawrence Eagleburger.

the pot calling the kettle...

Now this is funny. Obama wants a special prosecutor to look into Republican allegations of voter fraud.

The Detroit Free Press can't even bring themselves to mention ACORN in the lead of this story:
"Barack Obama’s legal team wants a special prosecutor to determine whether partisan politics is at play in a reported though unconfirmed Justice Department investigation of a voter registration effort which has been the target of numerous complaints of late, including one in Michigan."
But wait. There's more. The Obama campaign is even going so far as to suggest that one of the eight US Attorneys fired by the Bush Administration with great fanfare, David Iglesias, the former US Attorney from New Mexico, was dismissed because of his poor 'handling of voter fraud' cases.

Translation: Iglesias didn't bring a case against ACORN as the Administration ordered him to do.

The fact that nearly two weeks before a presidential election, there is rampant and widespread voter fraud nationwide as a direct result of the efforts of ACORN and the financial contributions from the Obama campaign, proves the Bush Administration was correct in wanting charges of voter fraud against ACORN.

And now the cheaters want the authorities to investigate the guys who are playing by the rules? How Democratic!

i think i see a pattern here...

Very interesting piece today in the Wall Street Journal about the politics of Obama and the notion of a presidential candidate with a singular message [himself], has difficulty governing once elected.

David Axelrod is Obama's chief strategist. He's done the 'change' and 'hope' thing before with Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, a Democrat. [Pictured above, with Obama] As Axelrod told Time last year the Obama campaign themes were 'field tested in Massachusetts.'

Patrick wasn't expected to win. The former Clinton Administration lawyer was an outsider in Boston, but with Axelod and current Obama campaign manager David Plouffe behind him, he won the general election by 21 points.

Once in office, Patrick 'renovated his office and upgraded his car,' with state money and suddenly the voters discovered that he had no governing philosophy. He was a phony. He was a candidate, not a governor.

I suspect that if, God forbid, Obama wins the presidency, once all the pomp and circumstance and historical significance has been forgotten, Americans will discover that Obama doesn't have a governing philosophy either. He's a candidate, not a president.

At the least, David Axelrod owes the citizens of Massachusetts a big apology. We'll see what other debts he might accrue after November 4.

horse race

The polls are all over the place, with Obama up anywhere from +2 to +10. The WSJ:
"What troubles me is when I see some of my colleagues have 27% of the respondents that are Republicans. (The LA Times-Bloomberg poll, for example) That's just not America, period," says Mr. Zogby, whose polls have shown Sen. Obama with a lead ranging from two to six points this month. He argues that while party affiliation fluctuates over time, it doesn't change "day-to-day, and it never fluctuates by eight points in a short time period.

"Pollster Scott Rasmussen, for example, weights current polls so that Democrats outnumber Republicans by a 39.3% to 33% margin, while pollster Zogby adjusts polls so that Democrats account for around 38% of the electorate and Republicans, 36%. So even if a particular sample of calls shows different ratios, the pollsters adjust to fit that formula."
You'll see more tightening as we get closer because the polling organizations, regardless of ideology, want to be the one firm that gets it right.

winner

Last night, John McCain gave Letterman his biggest ratings since 2005, topping Leno and his guest, Joe Biden.

the other joe the plumber

A plumber in Knoxville thinks Obama's full of crap, too. Meet Joe Shanks.
"I'd just feel more comfortable, confident and safe with McCain," the plumber said. "McCain's been there. Obama's just not that experienced."
From KnoxNews.com:
"Shanks likened the decision to a homeowner in need of a plumber - would you hire the guy who just got his trade license, he asked, or a seasoned professional?"
Exactly. The entire Joe the Plumber thing is real. It's finally cut through the 'change' and 'hope' garbage and has re-calibrated this race.

Meanwhile, SNL is prepping a sketch for tomorrow night in which Joe the Plumber is McCain's imaginary friend. And I hear Palin's dropping by the show, too.

my town

ACORN has reportedly registered 25,000 voters here in San Diego, or as I like to call it, Kentville.

so?

The rumor is that Colin Powell might endorse Obama Sunday on Meet The Press.

Makes sense. Powell wants to get the Bush stink off of him. And he's not much of an ideologue anyway. Powell is a 'we are the world' kind of guy, like Obama. And then there's that whole 'black thing.'

Of course, a Powell endorsment will be big for Obama, not on substance, but because the MSM will spin it beyond all reason and relevancy.

I have very little respect for the career bureaucrat Powell. He's a pansy. His wife wouldn't let run for President. And, his diddling around at the United Nations for six months might have given Saddam Hussein time to move his weapons to Syria.

imitation is the sincerest form of...

Katie Couric did her best Sarah Palin impression last night at the annual Alfred E. Smith dinner at the Waldorf Astoria in Manhattan.

funny stuff

democrats cheat

The Supreme Court has just ruled that cheating is okay in Ohio. Keep in mind that Justice Stevens, a partisan Democrat, handles cases that come from the 6th Circuit. Payback for Bush v. Gore, perhaps?

Late yesterday Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner, another partisan Democrat, filed an extension with the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals to either 'stay or modify an earlier order to come up with a system to help counties verify voter eligibility.'

There is rampant cheating going on in Ohio.
And Brunner's office estimates that there are some 200,000 new voter registrations with 'mismatched data.'

president government

Obama made up the supposed "Kill him" comment that was alleged to have been made during a recent Sarah Palin rally.

Strange twist, don't you think? Creating a fictional event in which fatal harm befalls you? That's sick, actually.

jennifer brunner should be in jail

Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner, a Democrat, doesn't want to verify the authenticity of her state's voter registrations.

She is violating state and federal law. Again, how about an executive order from the White House to prevent election fraud?

Some 666,000 'Ohioans' have 'registered' to vote since January. How could that possibly be legit?

ineligible

In Washington State, some 24,000 felons are in the active voter database and are currently receiving ballots.

Oh, sure. Let's blame it on a new computer system. From KIRO:
"Sources familiar with the election program, who asked we not identify them, tell us the new computer system was intentionally programmed to ignore a certain subset of felony data. The reasoning behind it was this: Because most of the felons on our list committed their crimes prior to the computer going online in 2006, it was going to be too difficult to research which ones can legally vote."
I, like McCain, am a federalist. I'm all for states rights. But it seems to me that we should get serious about voter fraud. And executive order from the White House mandating that every voter must show a picture ID would go a long way toward legitimizing our elections.

pre-debate #'s

Gallup misleads by saying 'Obama leads by seven.' That's among the generic 'registered voters.'

The key here is to examine the past voting behavior of Traditional Likely Voters. Then Obama only leads by three percentage points.

It remains close, but McCain really helped himself last night.

irregular heartbeat

Vice President Cheney's abnormal heartbeat today prompted a visit to the hospital. He's got atrial fibrillation, just like my dear, sweet Mother.

the keystone state

McCain plans to vigorously contest Pennsylvania, an approach that the Politico is calling 'risky.'

And Rep. John Murtha (D-PA), a man who should be in jail, says that Western Pennsylvania is 'racist,' but that Obama 'should win' anyway, even though it might shave as much as four points off his lead in the state.

It would seem that a state in which 'bitter' people 'cling to God and guns,' wouldn't vote for Obama. But given the city of Philadelphia's rich history of creative voting, here, here and here, I'd say anything is possible.

debate #3

McCain did great tonight. Aggressive and feisty, which was great to see. Finally.

McCain made some great points, although he jabs without giving knockout punches. He mentioned Ayers, but didn't describe who he was. He failed to mentioned Jeremiah Wright, which I still don't understand. McCain brought up ACORN, but didn't quite verbalize the threat of nationwide voter fraud as pointedly as I would have liked. He brought up abortion and infanticide, but Obama batted it down. He mentioned school vouchers and scored well, I thought.

I thought McCain, as he has in all three of the debates, missed a lot of opportunities. But he shined tonight and he made it clear that he doesn't consider the race to be over. I think he's within striking distance because of the experience issue and because of the tax issue. When McCain spoke of taxes tonight I thought he really connected, especially when he mentioned Joe Wurzelbacher (a.k.a., 'Joe the plumber' and Obama's plan to 'spread the wealth.'

Obama seemed to be back on his heels a good part of the debate. He defended himself well, without making any mistakes. McCain, on offense all night, was rolling through his comments so rapidly, he even at one point referred to Obama as 'Senator Government.'

Another memorable line of the evening it was when McCain told Obama 'he wasn't Bush' and that 'if Obama wanted to run against Bush he should have run four years ago.'

illegal voting

Ohio has until Friday to verify the legitimacy of ACORN voter registrations.

The AP is reporting that there are some 200,000 voting record 'discrepancies' in Ohio.

To be sure, they are working overtime to steal the state for Obama.

stupid politics

Obama proposes allowing people to cash out of their 401K plans penalty free. How stupid is that? What idiot would ever cash out his or her retirement?

If you are invested in the stock market for the long term, you'll make money. And as shaky as the notion of Social Security is going to be in the future hang on to your 401K no matter what.

Any politician that urges you to forfeit your retirement savings can't be trusted on the economy.

'lost ground'

From Zogby:

After making a move forward the day before, edging outside the margin of error, yesterday’s three-day rolling average showed Obama again sliding back. He still leads McCain by a 48.2% to 44.4% margin, an advantage of 3.8 percentage points. This comes after leading by 6.2 percentage points the day before.

Obama lost ground among independents in this latest edition of the tracking poll, and now leads McCain by just 8 points, 44% to 36%, with the rest of the independents either favoring a different candidate or remaining undecided. Obama’s lead just yesterday among independents in the three-day rolling average was 17%.

journalism is dead

The Obama campaign, ahead of tonight's final presidential debate, is coaching the MSM on what to say, post debate They issued 'talking points.'

Aren't journalists supposed report what they see and hear? Why are journalists allowing a presidential candidate to dictate the terms of the debate? Why are journalists in the pocket of Obama?

Here's a sampling:

"This is John McCain's last chance to turn this race around and somehow convince the American people that his erratic response to this economic crisis doesn't disqualify him from being President.

"Just this weekend the weekend, John McCain vowed to "whip Obama's you-know-what" at the debate, and he's indicated that he'll be bringing up Bill Ayers to try to distract voters.

"So we know that Senator McCain will come ready to attack Barack Obama and bring his dishonorable campaign tactics to the debate stage.

"Obama continues to lead on the economic crisis with a rescue plan for Main Street.

"Over the course of the campaign, Barack Obama has laid out a set of policies that will grow our middle class and strengthen our economy.

"But he knows we face an immediate economic emergency that requires urgent action - on top of the plans he's already laid out - to help workers and families and communities struggling right now.

"That's why Barack Obama is introducing a comprehensive four-part Rescue Plan for the Middle Class - to immediately to stabilize our financial system, provide relief to families and communities, and help struggling homeowners.

"This is a plan that can and should be implemented immediately.

"Obama has shown steady leadership during this crisis and offered concrete solutions to move the country forward - and his Rescue Plan for the Middle Class builds on the plans to strengthen the economy and rebuild the middle class that he's laid out over the course of this campaign.

"Already in this campaign, he's unveiled plans to give 95 percent of workers and their families a tax cut, eliminate income taxes for seniors making under $50,000, bring down the cost of health care for families and businesses; and create millions of new jobs by investing in the renewable energy sources.

"John McCain has been erratic and unsteady since this crisis began - staggering from position to position and trying to change the subject away from the economy by launching false character attacks."

Let's watch and listen tonight to the post-mortem coverage and see how closely they hew to the 'party line.'

in-game

The Obama campaign is smart. They are the first presidential campaign to buy in-game ads in video games to reach the elusive male, 18-34 target.

The ads are 'dynamically placed' in Madden 09, the above Burnout: Paradise and seven other sports titles, targeting gamers in swing states connected to Xbox Live.

Massive, a game advertising agency owned by Microsoft, approached the McCain campaign, too, but, apparently they decided against being mavericks.

It'll never happen, but Stanley Kurtz deserves a Pulitzer Prize for exposing readers to the real Barack Obama and the miscreants, pigs and criminals with whom he's associated fort the past 20 years.

obama mccain and acorn

ACORN, the racist, illegal voter registration has registered Mickey Mouse to vote. Yes they can and they did.

There is bogus ACORN voting activity... Over 4,000 fake voter registrations in Cleveland. Also in the crucial swing state of Ohio, a guy, Freddie Johnson, admits to having voted 73 times.

In Michigan, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio and Wisconsin, all battleground states which will decide the presidential election three weeks from today, rampant complaints of ACORN-related voter fraud.

Florida's Seminole County is withholding ACORN registrations over fraud concerns. Lake County, Indiana recently discovered 2,100 fake registrations. Bridgeport, Connecticut estimates that 20% of ACORN's registrations were fraudulent. Houston, Texas rejected some 40% of the 27,000 registrations submitted by ACORN.

Obama is now distancing himself from his former organization. Remember, he worked as a community organizer, trainer and a lawyer for ACORN. The Obama campaign recently gave ACORN $832,000 for "staging, sound, lighting." Then Obama had to admit the cash was for Get Out The Vote (GOTV) efforts.
So, Obama is an acknowledged liar.

Being objective, McCain also has an association, albeit a brief and temporary one, with ACORN. He attended a 2006 Miami rally for his doomed Amnesty legislation, which was co-sponsored by ACORN.

john kerry alert

I smell BS. Obama was against it, but now he's for it.

BO, who is mostly full of BS, attacked Hillary back in February, on a foreclosure freeze, arguing that the freeze was potentially 'disastrous,' because it would reward 'people who made this problem worse.'

Like everything else with Obama, and the Democrats, the plans and proposals shift, depending on the prevailing winds. They are liars of the first order and cannot be trusted.

culture of corruption

Congressman Tim Mahoney (D-FL) -- the guy who famously replaced the disgraced Mark Foley (R-FL) in '06 -- has used taxpayer funds -- to the tune of $121,000 -- as hush money to silence his former mistress.

Mahoney, the guy who came to office promising to be Mr. Family Values, cheats on his wife. And he lies and uses campaign cash to cover it all up. Nevermind that Foley never actually had sex with anyone. He just talked about it. Nice double standard. This is so much bigger than anything Foley did.

Add to that the fact that Rahm Emmanuel (D-IL) the chair of the so-called 'Democratic' caucus, has worked with Mahoney to limit the damage to his campaign in light of this scandal.

And Speaker Pelosi, the most incompetent leader of all the Democrats, reportedly 'just found out about Mahoney' today. If Pelosi is that clueless, she should resign.

UPDATE: An FBI probe?

doing lines

Norm Coleman and Al Franken are essentially 'tied' in the Minnesota Senatorial campaign? That's not very funny. Coleman has pulled all of his negative ads and somehow Franken thinks it's a 'cynical ploy.'

Is Franken still doing cocaine?

untrustworthy

If Obama is elected President and he does the things he promises, America will be defenseless.

"I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems...

...I will not weaponize space...

...I will slow development of future combat systems...

...and I will institute an independent "Defense Priorities Board" to ensure the quadrennial defense review is not used to justify unnecessary spending...

...I will set a goal of a world without nuclear weapons...

...and to seek that goal, I will not develop nuclear weapons...

...I will seek a global ban on the production of fissile material...

...and I will negotiate with Russia to take our ICBMs off hair-trigger alert...

...and to achieve deep cuts in our nuclear arsenals...

...and I, like all other feckless Democrats, will automatically assume that America's enemies can be trustworthy partners in all of these endeavors...."

If you're a Bush hating Left wing nutbag you are considered to be Nobel Prize-material. The latest example of this theory has borne itself out yet again in the person of the certifiable Paul Krugman.
