Heritage Foundation Asks Obama to Pull His Dishonest Ad

Heritage Foundation Asks Obama to Pull His Dishonest Ad

| October 28, 2008 | 1 Reply

I recently saw a Barack Obama ad called “Try This” about his so-called plan that quoted an analyst from the conservative Heritage Foundation. It seemed pretty incredible to me that anyone at Heritage would endorse any economic plan Barack Obama might propose. They’re a bit too smart to be suckered like that. At it turns […]

Old Man: The poll numbers are closing. This is good! But what is best in life? John McCain: Low taxes. Reaching across the aisle to craft a bipartisan earmark reform bill. Health care reform. Old Man: WRONG! Palin, what is best in life? Sarah Palin: To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, […]

Another Reporter Does Her Job; Another Obama Tool Gets Angry About It

Thank goodness for reporters like Megyn Kelly, who come into an interview prepared and who can, because of their preparation, bat aside flimsy talking points like dandelion fluff. Watch how she perturbs Obama spokestwit Bill Burton with the persistent use of pesky facts and leaves him. Notice also how angry he gets when it’s apparent […]

Is Abuse of Government Power Not a Real Story If Democrats Are the Abusers?

So where is the MSM in reporting this abuse of government power? State and local officials are investigating if state and law-enforcement computer systems were illegally accessed when they were tapped for personal information about “Joe the Plumber.” … Public records requested by The Dispatch disclose that information on Wurzelbacher’s driver’s license or his sport-utility […]

Well, good. It couldn’t happen to a more puffed up popinjay. Ted Stevens, the longest-serving Senate Republican in history and patriarch of Alaska politics, was found guilty of all seven felony charges for making false statements. The verdict could spell the end of a 40-year Senate career for a man who rose to be one […]

Sarah Palin Hung in Effigy and the AP Has No Opinion.

You might recall this article from not quite a week ago in which the AP cited three incidents to prove that “scattered ugly incidents have reflected a deep residue of racism among some segments of white America”. A cardboard likeness of Barack Obama was found strung from fishing wire at a university, the Democratic presidential […]

The MSM Doesn't Need a Pole Star

There was an interesting op-ed in yesterday’s Washington Post decrying the decline of the Associated Press and, by extension, other “hard news” wire services. The last line, especially, caught my eye. But in a world, and a Web, full of analysis, opinion and “accountability journalism,” what’s missing is a neutral referee. Which is a bit […]

Obama in 2001: The Constitution Has A "fundamental flaw" Because It Did Not Demand the Redistribution of Wealth and It is A "Tragedy" that the Courts Did Not Change That

It’s always that pesky Constitution that gets in the way of the socialist ideal, isn’t it? Barack Obama gave a radio interview in 2001, when he wasn’t running for President and could let his freak flag fly safe in the cocoon of corrupt leftist Chicago politics, and boy did he unfurl a big flag. If […]

Biden Cries About Tough Questions, Obama Campaign Throws Tantrum

Biden Cries About Tough Questions, Obama Campaign Throws Tantrum

| October 26, 2008 | 12 Replies

For the first time this campaign, Joe Biden got some tough and fair questions from a local journalist. The results were hilarious. Biden sputtered and stammered and finally ended it in a fit of pique generally seen in infants and pampered Democratic politicians. Then the Obama campaign questioned the integrity of the reporter and canceled […]

If you’re at all interested in the tax proposals of both candidates, the Wall Street Journal has the best brief summary here. The shorter version is that if you have any ambition toward making six figures during a Barack Obama administration, you’re going to need to be very, very careful lest you trigger a blizzard […]
