“A political party cannot be all things to all people. It cannot compromise its fundamental beliefs for political expediency, or simply to swell its numbers. It is not a social club or fraternity engaged in intramural contests to accumulate trophies on the mantel over the fireplace…No one can quarrel with the idea that a political […]

Don’t overplay your hand… or, be careful what you wish for?

I have mixed feelings on the internal strife in the Democratic Party that is supposedly causing a notable percentage of Hillary backers to openly support John McCain for president. [Wall Street Journal] Clinton supporters, disillusioned by their candidate’s narrow loss, have been showing up in the McCain camp, and Sen. McCain has stepped up his […]

Obama’s “Two Americas”

Did you know that Barack Obama has a 26-year-old half brother who “lives on less than a dollar a month in the outer slums of Nairobi, Kenya?” Obama has met him only twice, and failed to mention him in his latest autobiography. Andrew Breitbart calls out Obama on his “glass houses” mentality. Someone who made […]

This is an “intellectual”? It’s certainly not a leader.

I keep hearing how smart Barack Obama is. The mainstream media loves to point at every opportunity that Obama is an “intellectual.” Well, if Obama is so darn smart then how is it he seemed caught off guard by an abortion question? He’s running for president, for cryin’ out loud. [Reuters] Asked at what point […]

“Defeat it.”

It’s not that Barack Obama had a bad answer — although, predictably as any politically correct liberal he felt it necessary to focus equally on the United States — but just contrast his answer (and the crowd reaction) to a more politically savvy, experienced John McCain. Sometimes, less is more. And sometimes, the answers are […]

Quote of the day.

I think it should be noted that nothing McCain has said is as aggressive as the actions of Russia. It strikes me odd right now to complain of aggressive words in the defense of democracy rather than condemning aggressive actions against a democracy. — Seth Leibsohn

Kudlow on foreign energy dependence.

In a post titled “McCain Should Link Tsar Putin with ‘Drill, Drill, Drill’” CNBC’s Larry Kudlow is spot on: But global strategist Thomas Barnett has the energy angle on Russia’s invasion of Georgia exactly right. He says, “Now we all have clarity about the nasty nature of Putin’s Russia,” and this gives us clarity on […]

Obama, the “Me too” candidate.

He may be a messianic rockstar candidate but to date he’s parroting John McCain’s leadership like a bad mime. Let us count the ways: * Obama was against the surge before he was for it. How Kerryesque! Only after taking a beating from the legitimate criticism that Obama had never been to Iraq did Obama […]

Define “windfall,” Sen. Obama

This is what you call a “read the whole thing” editorial. What frustrates me is that any conservative worth their salt could retort Obama’s dufus “windfall profits” platform in about 60 seconds. For all of McCain’s strengths on Iraq, I just don’t know if he’s capable of doing what the WSJ does below. The “windfall […]

Why isn’t Obama creaming McCain?

I’m going to shamelessly steal an argument made by Fox News’ John Gibson. If you look at an average of all the major polls out there, which includes, Gallup, Rasmussen, CNN, USA Today/Gallop, Democracy Corps, Fox News and the NBC News/WSJ polls, Barack Obama is only up by 2.6%. The question is, if Obama is the […]
