  • Communist Party USA celebrates Obama victory: "A Landslide Mandate For Change"

    Congratulations on an extraordinary history making election! We can think back with pride to decades of hard work toward our strategic goal of a big enough, broad enough and united enough labor and all-people’s movement that could overcome the ultra-right blockage to all progress. That all people’s movement has come to life, it is dynamic and it has the potential to keep growing. The election of Barack Obama and a strengthened Congress creates new conditions in our country. There is now the possibility to shift gears and move forward. This new day requires us to further develop our tactics in...

    There's one thing that has my dander flying: the snooty treatment of Palin. It’s as if that old New Yorker cover–the one that shows Manhattan occupying most of the map of the United States, then the Mississippi River and fly-over country in a small strip, then San Francisco and Los Angeles in a larger area–has now become the template for all proper thinkers. I’m sure lots of folks in fly-over country are enraged by this, but many others want to have a seat at the table, want to join the celebrities, want to be thought of as serious thinkers. And...

    Forget Paris Hilton I'm just thinking there has to be a lot of female voters, outside the GOP, who have kept their views secret-but feel exactly like Hilton does; Hilton says: ---"I don't think she's stupid - she wouldn't be where she is today if she was stupid. I think she's smart, and it's just because she's a woman people are saying she's not." I hope there are a lot of Hillary voters hiding in the weeds.

    Of all the politicians this newspaper has encountered, Virgil H. Goode Jr. is among the most sincere in his efforts for constituents and the least caught up in politics and paybacks. He does what he believes is right. That’s a rare quality in Washington these days. If for no other reason than to present the Beltway insiders with an example of a true independent, the 5th District should re-elect Virgil Goode. But there are other reasons — such as that constituent concern. Mr. Goode is well known for his work in assisting 5th District residents with their problems. His record...

It was a notable edit for its relative tardiness (early voting was over with) and for this characterization of Barack Obama: He often sounds more like Venezuelan despot Hugo Chavez than a U.S. presidential candidate. What's down the road, nationalization of oil companies, health -care providers and more? Whew! At least our newspaper gave Mr. O respect in our recommendation editorial of John McCain.

    For five years Ali and Mohammed have lived alongside US soldiers in their Baghdad neighbourhood near Rasheed Street, a prominent commercial artery running through the heart of the Iraqi capital. During that time American culture and politics have become familiar to them, and they say that if they could, they would vote for Republican candidate John McCain in next week's US presidential election. "McCain would be best for Iraq because he would ensure stability," said Ali, 66, an expert on the Sumerian era. The personal qualities and political platforms of McCain and his Democrat rival Barack Obama are of little...

    The American News endorses John McCain for president. Clearly, this country is aching for change, and we think that McCain provides the right opportunity for a fundamental leadership change. McCain has demonstrated better than any other sitting senator an unabashed willingness to forge a path less taken. He eschews party politics and has found common ground with compatible colleagues countless times, regardless of party affiliation. That kind of collaborative effort is what should be the rule in Congress; too often it is the exception. Today, at this juncture of our country's history, we see McCain as a leader who can...

    During the so-called presidential debates, I failed to hear a single mention of the U.S. Constitution, which should have been the chief subject. What are the proper powers of government, of the federal government, and of the president? These questions don’t even come up anymore. The debaters wrangle heatedly about “the economy”—a phrase that never appears in the text of the Constitution but preoccupies today’s pundits and politicians. Neither of the major-party presidential candidates, let alone President Bush, could have held an intelligent conversation with Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, or John Jay, the authors of The Federalist, our best known...

Experience matters a great deal in today’s unstable world. While the economy emerged as the overriding issue in this campaign, foreign relations, the war on terror and military leadership remain key to our national security.

Now, two days before the 2008 General Election, the state of the U.S. economy is again the biggest issue on the table ¿ in fact, its importance is even greater. The United States and the world is on the brink of a major economic recession.

    "John McCain is fiercely independent. And he makes no apologies for the principles he holds dear, even if they be at odds with the traditional party base. But he has never wavered in his core belief of what Republicanism (with a capital 'R') and republicanism (with a lower-case 'r') are all about: Small government. Fiscal discipline. Low taxes. A strong defense. And a judiciary that does not legislate from the bench. Compared with Barack Obama's long and dangerous statist laundry list of the ever more expansive role government should play in our lives, John McCain sums it up quite succinctly,...

    Weekly town hall meeting-style debates for the last two months, as proposed by Sen. John McCain, would have done much to inform the public about the issues — and about McCain's long, clear record as a moderate who works across party lines. Sen. Barack Obama, whose record is very thin, shrewdly rejected the joint tour that could have given swing voters a more substantial comparison of the candidates. The Republican hasn't fared well in the traditional campaign that ensued, though voters caught a glimpse of the real McCain when he firmly told a supporter there was no reason to "fear"...

    For president of the United States, The Dispatch endorses Republican Sen. John McCain, whose experience, service and sacrifice for his country make him more qualified to lead the nation. McCain's Democratic opponent, Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, is a rousing motivational speaker, but his experience and achievements -- eight years in the Illinois Legislature and less than four in the U.S. Senate -- do not stand comparison with McCain's. A resume containing so little evidence of leadership and accomplishment leaves in question Obama's ability to handle the most responsible and difficult job in the world, especially at a time when the...

While the MSM continue to churn out stories about alleged "voter suppression" (yes, it exists, but it is a pretty minor thing, especially when compared to ACORN's widespread electoral fraud), ACORN's interim organizer in chief Bertha Lewis has removed any remaining doubt about which political party ACORN supports.Lewis is featured in a video posted on YouTube by an ACORN affiliate,Working...

    Dr. Savage endorses McCain! I did'nt think he would do it, as it seems he's been hard on him lately, but he mentions nObama's Commie idea's & finally get's it. He's taking credit for a boost from today's Gallup poll & he probably should.

    ...John McCain’s love of country and passion for public service are indisputable. He can never be thanked enough for the suffering and sacrifice he endured on behalf of his fellow soldiers during his honorable and heroic military service. In a different time and under different circumstances, he likely would have been our choice for president. But 2008 is not his time. There is no perfect presidential candidate. If fully funded, the policy proposals put forward by both candidates, with their unaffordable promises, would exacerbate the country’s already-outrageous budget deficits. Obama’s position on free trade is troubling, but what he’s saying...
  • Group Takes Aim at Warner Over Unions - Gilmore Endorsed by Richmond Times Dispatch

    ...the National Right to Work Committee has apparently decided to invest a least a little bit of money on television ads to try to undercut Warner's appeal. The committee is airing an ad on Richmond television that calls into question whether Warner will uphold Virginia's status as a right-to-work state. The ad notes Warner has not come out against the Employee Free Choice Act, which would make it easier for workers to unionize. Gilmore is a strong opponent of the proposal. Gilmore also received a boost today when he picked up an endorsement from the Richmond Times Dispatch. Although the...

    Few doubt Barack Obama's considerable abilities. For many, he represents a final, healing chapter in the nation's long battle for civil rights. And he epitomizes the dreams of many African Americans who identify with him as Catholics did with John F. Kennedy - add to that his confident speeches, his charisma and his charm. We would urge our readers to step back from the polls and press coverage, and soberly weigh the experiences and stands of Mr.Obama and John McCain. We do not hold Mr. Obama's lack of national experience against him. Abraham Lincoln was one of America's greatest presidents...

    Just as his latest CD "That Don't Make Me A Bad Guy" hits store shelves today, Toby Keith tells People magazine he'll be voting Republican come November 4th, solely because of Vice-Presidential contender Sarah Palin. "I think she is the best thing in politics at that level I've ever seen. I hate politicians, and she's as far from one as you can get. She's a mother, she's a human being. And I can sympathize with her. She went from being an unknown governor to being on the cover of every magazine." Believe it or not, Keith is a longtime Democrat,...

    It’s common for voters these days to say they vote for the person, not the party, that the character of the candidate matters more than the political principles the candidate espouses and represents. Let there be no doubt that Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain are two men of upstanding character. No one should doubt that or attempt to cast aspersions on either man. They represent the best of America and what this nation stands for in the world: the primacy of the individual over the state, the equality of the individual before the law, the chance for each...

    THE EDITORIAL BOARD of The State finds itself faced with a happy dilemma — a choice between two presidential candidates whom we unanimously and enthusiastically endorsed in their primary contests. Now the nation must choose between them, and while we believe either man would make a fine president, we endorse Sen. John McCain of Arizona. Barack Obama is an inspiring and even transformational figure. He has the intellect and the temperament to lead the nation well in troubled times. On some issues, such as health care, we prefer his proposals to Sen. McCain’s. If anyone else had won the Republican...

    Here is Beck in his own words. He prefaces it by saying that his view is probably wildly unpopular, but Glenn being Glenn really does not care about being part of the "in" crowd: “I'm endorsing Sarah Palin.” “My hope is in Sarah Palin. Here's why. A lot of people will say, oh, she's too inexperienced. Yep, yep, she doesn't have a lot of experience in Washington. She doesn't have a lot of experience in being a community organizer. She doesn't have a lot of experience in the Senate. She certainly doesn't have a lot of experience sitting there and...

    The Sen. John McCain of the recent past can successfully lead the United States into the future as president. Candidate McCain must shed the baggage that burdens his status as presidential contender and the compromising air he wears like an ill-fitting suit, and be true to his personal tenacity, honesty and candor. We think that man, the maverick senator - renewed and reinvigorated- is ready for residency in the White House. The need for consensus within the Republican Party - whose identity and fortunes have been hurt by missteps of the Bush presidency - compelled McCain to evolve his views...

    The Grand Rapids Press ^ | October 26, 2008 | The Editorial Board
    Each major party candidate for president this year brings unique strengths to the urgent issues facing the nation. But for sheer depth of experience, principled courage and unassailable independence, Republican John McCain stands out. The Arizona Senator offers the best hope for crafting a foreign policy that will stand strong against America's enemies without needlessly alienating allies. He is a budget hawk who could curb Congress' lavish ways, a particular need in these economic times. He has a proven ability to transcend the stunting political polarities that bedevil Washington. For these reasons, we endorse Sen. JOHN McCAIN for president. Mr....

    The next president of the United States will face a stunning list of problems: two wars that must be won; a financial system in need of fixes that prevent the excesses of recent years without squelching growth and innovation; an economy that has almost certainly sunk into a recession likely to spread around the globe; a health care system that is too expensive and leaves too many uninsured; a large and growing federal budget deficit; Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid programs marching relentlessly toward bankruptcy; nuclear weapons in North Korea and Pakistan -- and an aggressive program to build them...
