    Town Hall ^ | August 09, 2008 | BETH FOUHY
    Republican John McCain on Saturday issued a scathing critique of Barack Obama's judgment and readiness to be commander in chief, telling a veterans' group his Democratic rival had tried to "legislate failure" in Iraq and placed his own ambition ahead of military success there. Addressing the Disabled American Veterans convention here, McCain mocked what he called Obama's varying positions on the Bush administration's decision to send an additional 30,000 troops to Iraq last year. The GOP hopeful supported the so-called "surge" strategy, even as polls showed most voters opposed sending more troops into combat at the time. Obama spoke out...

    Could Senator Clinton win the Democratic presidential nomination at the last minute by taking advantage of buyer's remorse among Democratic super-delegates who are dismayed by the performance of Senator Obama's campaign so far? Here's the scenario: Senator Obama has raised tens of millions more dollars than Senator McCain, which Democrats think should translate into an advantage in the polls. The economy is doing poorly, which Democrats think should translate into an advantage in the polls given that the Republicans control the White House and the incumbent party is often blamed for a bad economy. The Republican nominee-in-waiting, Senator McCain, is...

    Indeed, having lulled Barack Obama into believing that the party’s nomination is his inalienable birth right, Hillary abruptly switched gears and now says that she might allow her name to be introduced for consideration at the Democrat Convention. Hillary’s chicanery came after Obama announced his daily flip-flop, this time calling for full participation by the Michigan and Florida delegations at the convention. Obama was no doubt seeking to heal old wounds when he declared, “I believe party unity calls for the delegates from Florida and Michigan to be able to participate fully alongside the delegates from the other states and...

    It’s one thing to point out what our country could do to become superior to its former self, but quite another to preface such counsel with the implication that it’s inferior to every other nation. If Barack Obama sought to win the votes of Germans, he need seek no more. Of course, his new image was all the rage in the Old World long before he gave his July 24 speech in Berlin. Along with the mainstream media and murderer Dale Leo Bishop, Senator Sweetness and Light is the man the Europeans want as our leader. Although Obama certainly has...

    Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama have much more in common than their woeful understanding of the Islamist threat. As is by now apparent, Barack Obama and his crack team of foreign policy experts have proven themselves totally tone-deaf when it comes to understanding the American people and their views toward the rest of the world. His campaign’s strategy to convince voters that the way to win their hearts is to cozy up to those who hold them in disdain has resulted in a dip in his poll numbers. So, having failed to impress any of those who have not already...

    Ten reasons why Barack Obama will not win the 2008 presidential election — and none of them have anything to do with his middle name. Yes, I know it’s only August, and only a simpleton or clairvoyant would offer a post-election analysis about how Barack Obama blew the 2008 presidential race. Needless to say I’m not clairvoyant. The jury still seems to be out — at least in some people’s minds — about whether I’m a simpleton, though. But, I won’t use any innate foolishness I possess as the basis for offering a judgment about the outcome of an election...

    What I want to know is, how did Hans Christian Andersen know about Barack Obama more than a century ago? Because Obama is straight out of Andersen's classic fairly tale, The Emperor's New Clothes. Old Hans Christian, who lived in Denmark from 1805 to 1875, had Obama's number down pat. All he needed was a good grasp of human nature. Nothing has changed. Pretentious frauds still parade down the boulevards of Copenhagen and Washington, D.C., and only little kids notice their nakedness. Nobody dares to snicker, for fear of being called a bad name. (You know the bad name everybody...

    Obama's Grandma Changes Islam Story From Little Green Footballs: "Yesterday’s edition of USA Today had a story about Barack Obama’s grandmother in Kenya, in which she slams the Clinton campaign for circulating photos of Obama in Muslim garb—and then states that she is a Christian: Obama’s grandma slams ‘untruths’." "Obama’s grandfather had converted to Islam from Roman Catholicism and taken the name Hussein, Sarah Obama said, but his children had inherited only the name, not the religion. Each person should be able to choose how they worshipped, she said. “In the world of today, children have different religions from their...

    An early example is the work bring done to trace the source of the so-called smear about Obama's religion. I call it a so-called smear not because I am suggesting for one second that Obama is a Muslim but because, if you think about it, it is odd to call suggesting someone is a Muslim a "smear", isn't it? Well, Matthew Mosk in the Washington Post makes clear why the smear label is well merited. From the beginning the allegation was less that Obama was some sort of Islamist than that he was a liar. The idea, the smear, was...

    CS Monitor ^ | May 19, 2008 | Shireen K. Burki
    Osama bin Laden must be chuckling in his safe house. After all, the 2008 campaign could very well give Al Qaeda the ultimate propaganda tool: President Barack Hussein Obama, Muslim apostate. The fact that Senator Obama – the son of a Muslim father – insists he was never a Muslim before becoming Christian is irrelevant to bin Laden. In bin Laden's eyes, Obama is a murtad fitri, the worst type of apostate, because he was blessed by Allah to be born into the true faith of Islam. There are two types of apostates according to sharia (Islamic law) and the...

    Is Barack Obama the Messiah? Lots of people have pondered the possibility that Barack is our Divine Redeemer. Google the question "Is Barack Obama the Messiah?" and you'll get more than 35,000 hits. Enter just the words "Messiah" and "Obama" and you'll get nearly 10 times that. But there's more concrete evidence. Since Obama declared his candidacy, there have been remarkably few biblical plagues. And lions and lambs seem open to bilateral negotiations. Obama's apostles are hard to dismiss. Oprah simply calls him "The One," because "we need politicians who know how to be the truth." (Jesus says in John...

    Why is it so difficult for them to conceive of a black man in charge of America? The answer is quite simple. When Chinese people think of America, they think of the color white. Chinese women use umbrellas in the sun to keep their pale skin while both Chinese men and women try to change their hair color to blond or at least something lighter. Chinese people know all about Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Britney Spears, and the Backstreet Boys but not so much about Bill Cosby, Martin Luther King, and Oprah Winfrey. The fact that someone other than a...

    Barack Obama is prepared to sit down with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the man who is supporting Muqtada al-Sadr and other anti-American Shiite forces in Iraq. Should Barack Obama be elected President of the United States this November, we can expect him to climb aboard Air Force One and fly to Tehran to initiate a conversation with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Obama is prepared to meet with a man who is supporting Muqtada al-Sadr and other anti-American Shiite forces in Iraq. These forces are killing American soldiers. Obama is prepared to meet with a man who is supporting Hezbollah, a terrorist organization...

    So where are we? $3.00 + gas prices here at home, higher food prices here at home, more starvation in the 3rd world. And you can Blame Barak Obama and Dick Durbin. The diminutive Illinois Senator and Sir Obama-lot have almost single-handedly screwed up international energy markets, driven up food prices and left potentially billions starving. I kid you not—Durbin has nearly achieved Pol Pot and Mao proportions….how ironic. It all began with the Dickster and Barak pushing through an energy bill that relied on Ethanol as an energy panacea.

    Barack Obama delivered a speech on March 18th, just days after the firestorm created by the release of tapes in which his Pastor Jeremiah Wright repeatedly made the most incendiary anti-American statements. So to diffuse the issue he endeavored to deliver a speech on race relations in America. The problem with this speech was that the anger that Jeremiah Wright provoked in patriotic Americans had nothing to do with race. He filled his speech with platitudes about race relations, which while they may be true, have nothing to do with why people are angry. People were not deeply offended by...

    Obama's church, Trinity United Church Of Christ, has attempted to respond to the video clips that have emerged of their former pastor Jeremiah Wright engaging in hateful, racist, ignorant, anti-American diatribes they called sermons. Otis Moss III, the current pastor of Trinity United, said that "we have listened and watched as the wonderful work of our church has been vilified this week. This week should be special for us because I guess we know a little something about crucifixion." Give me a break! Trying to play the victim card is idiotic. Wright blamed America for 9-11, compared America to Al-Qaeda,...

    Chip Wall can't help but zero in on the little stuff whenever he watches Barack Obama on TV. It's his old pal Stanley. For Wall and a few dozen others, Obama on the campaign trail often brings to mind Stanley Ann Dunham, Obama's mother and a strong-willed, unconventional member of the Mercer Island High School graduating class of 1960. "She was not a standard-issue girl of her times... "She touted herself as an atheist, and it was something she'd read about and could argue," the only child was a ... daughter of a father who wanted a boy so badly...
