  • Media Matters Palace Guard Defense of Michelle Obama Backfires - Big Time

    Dr. Free Market to kristinn

    Michelle RuPaul Antoinette Obama is signaling that she knows that they aren’t going to be there past 2012, if that long.

    Like some elitist Welfare Queen of the entitlement class, she’ll take everything she can get while they’re there ‘cuz she deserves it. After all, she’s only doing it as reparations on behalf of her people kept down all those years by Whitey. You see, she is being selflessly symbolic for the downtrodden. You go girl (or guy)!

  • LIVE HEALTH CARE THREAD ~ SATURDAY & SUNDAY

    Dr. Free Market to All
    The speech I wish some House Conservative would give on the floor today:

    Madame Speaker, I rise to speak to those few remaining undecideds on this so called health care reform bill upon which we will vote this evening.

    I am not speaking to those that have already cast their lot with and sold their souls to a failed leftist ideology; for all the evidence of history is lost on them.

    I am not speaking to those that believe that this bill “reduces deficits” or “creates jobs”; for any appeals to logic and rationality are likewise lost. I only need to point to the eerily similar utopian promises made for Medicare and Medicaid that now are bankrupting our country and states as evidence of their folly.

    No. I am speaking to those few that for whatever reason remain undecided as to how they will vote. I want to crystallize for you possibly the only reason to vote “No.”

    There comes a time in everyone’s life when one reaches a fork in the road, and the path you decide to take will define you for evermore. This is such a time. However you vote, please understand that not only you but your progeny will bear the result in more ways than one.

    You have to know that this bill is wrong; otherwise, you would have already decided. Your conflict is whether you are strong enough--man or women enough--to do the right thing then withstand the scorn of the powerbrokers in your party, including our President.

    I’ll admit that this is an unenviable reality, but let me impress upon you an even more frightening reality. If you vote “Yes” despite believing the consequences will be potentially devastating for your state and country, then you will have to live the rest of your days looking into the eyes of your spouse and children with them knowing that you were too weak to stand up for what you believed in when this defining moment arrived. Oh, their love will still be unconditional, but their respect for you will be forever diminished. Even if your children are too young to understand now, your partner will know; and some day, so will they. Even worse, they will have to bear your stain—at school, at the grocery, and at any gathering of friends and family.

    Myself, I would prefer that those that I love were able to proudly defend my vote and honor knowing that I stood on principle when history called, rather than being reduced to spouting campaign talking points all the while knowing in their heart of hearts that the truth was that I was a coward.

    I don’t envy your choice.
    I yield back what I am afraid is the balance of America’s time.
  • Blaming Rush Limbaugh and Conservatism for Republican Woes (McCain only blames Conservatives)

    Don't they realize that if it weren't for Palin, McCain would have lost by 20-25%. Even with as bad a campaign as they ran (e.g mismanaging Palin), McCain was poised to win a landslide until he/they self-immolated on the bailout. All he had to do was say he was against it, vote NO, and put forth a nominal plan of getting rid of mark-to-market and retroactive tax cuts, and BOOM.. it's Obama who?

  • Blackwell's Back

    Dr. Free Market to freekitty

    Blackwell is for real. The problem is that he is not a strategist. His gubernatorial campaign was one self-inflicted blunder after another. The GOP needs more than just a real conservative; it needs a real conservative everyman who is a master political strategist with a rhetorical flare when speaking and no shame or conscience when it comes to beating Democrats. I don’t know who fits that profile (other than me) — a combination of Gingrich, Steele, Blackwell, and Palin — but if you find him/her, let me know ‘cuz that’s what we need.

  • JOE BIDEN'S FEARS

    10/21/2008 5:49:33 AM PDT · 12 of 40
    Dr. Free Market to kellynla

    All the evidence suggests that Biden is much dumber than Demoscrats think Palin is; and Palin much smarter than they think Biden is. If Palin had said 1/10 the crap that’s come out of Biden’s head, I’d be leading the charge to drop her from the ticket.

    If you recall, we said that Biden was at the bottom of the list of VP candidates that worried Republicans, below Osama bin Laden and Hannah Montana — now you know why.

    If I didn’t know better, I’d think Biden was a Republican, or more likely, a Clinton plant. Biden makes Palin seem like Margaret Thatcher by the day.

    Colin Powell was Obama’s last trump, and it got jumped by Biden’s warning to the world. Any Powell bump - minimal at best - is done despite the Media trying desperately to make it and him relevant; but Biden’s a lodestone around Obama’s neck - just like we knew he would be - which all goes back to B. Hussein’s judgment.

  • Obama: Powell will have a role in adminstration

    Dr. Free Market to Malone LaVeigh

    Colin Powell needs the Media to reform his legacy of being proven wrong at every turn for the last 18 years. He advised not to go into Baghdad and finish the job in the first Iraq War, which would have obviated the rest of history since. He enabled Clinton’s fecklessness regarding terrorism. He spearheaded (reluctantly) the liberation of Iraq - which he didn’t believe in - then stabbed Pres. Bush in the back at every turn as his Sec. of State. Now, he is completing the circle of incompetent advice to the country while sniffin’ for a job by paying his pennance to Lord Obama and the Media by again stabbing in the back the one man who was right during the whole War.

    After hearing and reading Powell’s non-sensical endorsement, I honestly doubt that this is anything more than another Black guy endorsing Barack to stick it to Whitey so that he looks good in the history books.

  • Obama's lead falls two points in new CNN Poll of Polls

    Dr. Free Market to savedbygrace
    Here’s all you need to know:

    Since 1988, the largest party ID differential for any election - that includes 2 Clinton wins, the Rep takeover in ‘94, the Dem takeover in ‘06 - has been Dem +4 in ‘96.

    Every election Dems think THIS will be the year that all those winos, homeless, and college students are going to vote, and it hasn’t happened yet. Some day it may (possibly ‘08), but I have no reason to believe that this will be the year. Remember, all those newly registered voters were unregistered for a reason - THEY DON’T VOTE! I would assume any other national poll with a Dem advantage >4 is likely suspect, and needs to be adjusted at the point of consumption.

    Ohio:

    The Ohio Poll - the most accurate polling service in Ohio - which has projected Election Day winners in 34 of 34 statewide contests polled since ‘94 has McCain +2 in Ohio using their usual model. All other polling services give Obama a lead anywhere from +2 to +5. I’ll believe The Ohio Poll - based on track record - which suggests that the other polls are 4-7 off to Obama’s favor. The question is, "Does this reflect polling in other swing states?"

    1. McCain is +2 in Ohio according to the most accurate polling service in Ohio, and despite all other polling services giving Obama a lead anywhere from +2 to +5 per RCP. I’ll believe the U. of C., which suggests that the polling from other states may be off from 4-7 points as well.

    The Ohio Poll : “...since 1994 The Ohio Poll has projected Election Day winners in 34 of 34 statewide contests polled.”

    2. Hmmm... Why do you suppose that Gallup all of a sudden changed the way that they are reporting the polls?

    According to RCP:

    The Gallup organization has taken the unusual step in its Gallup Daily Tracking Poll of releasing two sets of "Likely Voters" results.


    The first likely voter model is based on Gallup's traditional likely voter assumptions...(a)ccording to this model, Obama's advantage over McCain is 50% to 46% in Oct. 9-11 tracking data. The second likely voter... is only based on respondents' current voting intention... among groups that are traditionally less likely to vote... According to this second likely voter model, Obama has a 51% to 45% lead over McCain.


    RealClearPolitics, however, in their daily report is using an average of Gallup's two Likely Voters results - Obama 52, McCain 43.5 (Obama +8.5).


    If one is a lead of 4, and the other is a lead of 6, how do you get an average lead of 8.5?!


    This morning on Quinn & Rose, their "insider" said the RNC internals have McCain +3.

    But McCain tells me that Obama is “a good man” despite his surrogates calling me a racist for the last year; therefore I have no reason to be angry.

  • Palin says report says she acted lawfully ["partisan led inquiry run by (Barack) Obama supporters"]

    Dr. Free Market to danamco
    Let’s see… she’s cleared of any wrong doing in removing Monegan, but is found to have perpetrated an “ethics violation” – defined as “personal or financial gain” in AK law -- which is considered an “abuse of power.” Can someone please tell me what “personal or financial gain” Sarah Palin received?

    It appears that “abuse of power” was put in there solely to attract the exact headlines that this report is receiving. The findings of report specifically contradict its title and doesn’t detail any personal or financial gain that would justify a finding of an ethics violation or abuse of power.

    Palin gets a manufactured slap on the wrist in a political witchhunt, and it’s all over the media. Obama’s hip deep in causing the greatest economic crisis since The Great Depression, a decade-long voter fraud scam with ACORN, and an attempted overthrow of the Chicago Public School System with a terrorist — not to mention Rezko and indoctrinating his children in a an anti-American racist church — but the Media won’t touch those stories.

    Now try and tell me that there is no Obama bias in the MSM; but McCain tells me that Obama is honorable, and I’m not supposed to be angry despite being called a racist for the last year by B. Hussein’s surrogates.

    I’m tired of the Black Man keepin’ me down! We want reparations for the trillions of dollars they took from us since The Great Society started. We didn’t have a choice in coming to America, we was throwed outta Europe. All White people should vote for John McCain as a show of unity against The Man!
