Pat Buchanan has a column you should read today. You’ve got to read the entire article, but:
“Seizing on the crisis, the left says we are witnessing the failure of market economics, a failure of conservatism.
This is nonsense. What we are witnessing is the collapse of Gordon Gecko (“Greed Is Good!”) capitalism. What we are witnessing is what happens to a prodigal nation that ignores history, and forgets and abandons the philosophy and principles that made it great.
A true conservative cherishes prudence and believes in fiscal responsibility, balanced budgets and a self-reliant republic. He believes in saving for retirement
One of the problems with our government is that it is reactionary. But if you are running for a reactionary office, you cannot be this deliberate in a crisis. This is fodder for McCain’s judgement argument.
“Given the gravity of this situation, and based on conversations I have had with both Secretary Paulson and Chairman Bernanke, I have asked my economic team to refrain from presenting a more detailed blue-print of how an immediate plan might be structured until the Treasury and the Federal Reserve have had an opportunity to present their proposal.” – Obama

I am suprised that the party of CHANGE! are reverting to their old ways this close to an important election. Then Abdul posts this:
“Reportedly they met with County Chairman Ed Treacy prior to the Council meeting. According to my sources, Treacy encouraged them to do what they could to slow down the budget process until November in an effort to embarrass Mayor Greg Ballard and the Republicans.”
Hocking the reform and change message for the last 19 months must not have trickled down to the Marion County Democrats. I was expecting a reversal of the failed policies of the past from all
Here is the series from Investor’s Business Daily that every Democrat and Republican should read:
Barack Obama has styled himself a centrist, but does his record support that claim?
In this series, we examine Senator Obama’s past, his voting record and the people who’ve served as his advisers and mentors over the years. We’ll show how the facts of Obama’s actions and associations reveal a far more left-leaning tilt to his background — and to his politics.
Election ‘08: Democrats’ reintroduction of militant Michelle Obama in Denver was supposed to show her softer side.
Let’s start with Joe Klein explaining to dumb Republicans what a community organizer is (We’ll explain humor to Joe later)…
“So here is what Giuliani and Palin didn’t know: Obama was working for a group of churches that were concerned about their parishioners, many of whom had been laid off when the steel mills closed on the south side of Chicago. They hired Obama to help those stunned people recover and get the services they needed—job training, help with housing and so forth—from the local government. It was, dare I say it, the Lord’s work—the sort of mission Jesus
Here are the facts that McCain got wrong last night.
Brit Hume is retiring… There goes the last reason to Fox News… Damn.
McCain gets more ratings than Obama… After two years of Obama-mania, could we be tiring of him? Or are we just not as exposed to McCain in the media?
And the Colts donate $1 million to Riley. You’d think with the scandalous money-making deal Peterson gae them, they’d be able to donate more than just a milli. Thanks Taxpayers!
While watching McCain’s speech last night, I couldn’t believe they put McCain in front of a mansion with a GREEN lawn… Gawker best describes my thoughts:
“While watching the McCain speech last night, we suddenly noticed the big video screen background (which only looked cool when it was neat rippling water behind Rudy Giuliani) suddenly shifted to what looked like a greenscreen. Oh wow what a stupid and terrible f-up, we thought. Because everyone remembers what happened last time! It turns out the f-up was so, so much bigger and more hilarious: it was not a greeenscreen. It was
Vice Presidential Nominee to Address the 2008 Republican National Convention
SAINT PAUL, Minn. – This evening Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the Republican Party’s vice presidential nominee, will address the 2008 Republican National Convention. Excerpts from the governor’s remarks:
On her experience as a public servant:
“I had the privilege of living most of my life in a small town. I was just your average hockey mom, and signed up for the PTA because I wanted to make my kids’ public education better. When I ran for city council, I didn’t need focus groups and voter profiles because I knew those voters,
I am currently listening to the book Obama Nation. (It isn’t worth the time it takes to read it, I can listen faster.) The author (Jerome Corsi of swift boat fame) is a certifiable loon, and the Obama team does an ok job of discussing the source. Obama Nation gives you some perspective on his history, but if a biographer/historian can’t get basic facts right, how can you trust the bigger facts? It’s worth a read before November (then send it straight to Half-Price Books), but not without this document from the Obama camp: http://obama.3cdn.net/a74586f9067028c40a_5km6vrqwa.pdf

An Open Letter to God, from Michael Moore

The other night, the Rev. James Dobson’s ministry asked all believers to pray for a storm on Thursday night so that the Obama acceptance speech outdoors in Denver would have to be cancelled.
I see that You have answered Rev. Dobson’s prayers — except the storm You have sent to earth is not over Denver, but on its way to New Orleans! In fact, You have scheduled it to hit Louisiana at exactly the moment that George W. Bush is
For the last eight years, the opposition party, the Democrats, have rooted for the failure of America. They have rooted for the War in in Iraq to fail. Now that the shift in administration policy has resulted in less deaths in Iraq, the Democrats are silent on the subject. Economic numbers have been twisted to seem worse than the reality. Some liberal pundits flat out lie about the state of our economy. There is no doubt that the average American is struggling, and cash is less available. But I sensed a serious deflation in the liberal community when the Labor
