The Los Angeles Times has a tape of Barack Obama at a Rashid Khalidi event but won’t release it. Unreal.
There is more to the Big Labor wish list than just abolishing secret ballots in union elections.
Mona Charen spells out the argument that should have been made by John McCain on the financial crisis. Would the public still have blamed President Bush? Perhaps, but it would have been a coherent message grounded in economic reality. And would have set the stage nicely for what turned out to be the best attack yet — on Barack the Spreader.
Condoleezza Rice as President of the San Francisco 49er’s? If so, the blitzing defense will be replaced with a negotiating committee that will secure a promise (alas, unverifiable) from the opposing quarterback not to throw any touchdown passes.
No, I have no idea what John McCain was doing in Iowa on Sunday. It is this sort of thing which drives conservatives to distraction.
Tip to liberal reporters: don’t mess with Stanley Kurtz unless you are willing to dabate on the facts.
Melanie Phillips explains why many of us “can’t sleep at night.” Read the whole thing–twice.
Well, this Al Franken ad reminds me: where are the “temperament” police when it comes to an outrageous, obnoxious Democrat, one who can’t even pay his taxes and workers’ comp bills?
If The One won’t have press conferences when the MSM is in full swoon, imagine what it will be like if he’s elected and the bloom comes off the rose.
Harsh words all around between conservatives. Rather than tossing people out of the party or predicting who has virtually no chance to win the race in 2012, perhaps we could finish the current election. Republicans might start by asking politicians who have been successful, rather than canvassing pundits who got most everything wrong.
Think the economy can’t get worse? Arthur Laffer begs to differ: “To alleviate the obvious hardships to both homeowners and banks, the government commits to buy mortgages and inject capital into banks, which on the face of it seems like a very nice thing to do. But unfortunately in this world there is no tooth fairy. And the government doesn’t create anything; it just redistributes. Whenever the government bails someone out of trouble, they always put someone into trouble, plus of course a toll for the troll. Every $100 billion in bailout requires at least $130 billion in taxes, where the $30 billion extra is the cost of getting government involved. If you don’t believe me, just watch how Congress and Barney Frank run the banks. If you thought they did a bad job running the post office, Amtrak, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the military, just wait till you see what they’ll do with Wall Street.”
