John McCain's New Ad Leaves A Mark

John McCain's New Ad Leaves A Mark

| July 31, 2008 | 2 Replies

So it looks like John McCain hit Barack Obama right in his sensitive spot: his ego. McCain’s latest ad puts Obama right up there with all the other attention-hungry, vain celebrities like Britney Spears and Paris Hilton. Obama, for his part, sniffed haughtily and pretty much reaffirmed the ad’s main point, which is that it’s […]

I have been saying for some time that Barack Obama’s greatest weakness on the campaign trail is that he’s prone to saying incredibly stupid things when he speaks off the cuff. This week is no exception. Here’s his latest groaner. “So nobody really thinks that Bush or McCain have a real answer for the challenges […]

If this story is even mostly true, Democratic heads will explode. Barack Obama’s vice presidential search team has floated the name of a member of President Bush’s first-term Cabinet, Agriculture Secretary Ann Veneman, as Obama’s running mate. The search committee, now led by Caroline Kennedy and Eric Holder, raised Veneman’s name — among others — […]

Thank you, Mr. President. NEW YORK (Reuters) – U.S. retail gasoline prices have fallen more than 10 cents per gallon in a week and could fall another 25 cents by the end of summer, a sign the worst is over for U.S. motorists this vacation season.

When the AP says the war is won, it’s time for the looney left to fold up their tents and go home. What the AP article to which Allah linked does not mention is that this is the second war we have won in Iraq. The first war, against Saddam Hussein and his army, was […]
