    The Collins Report ^ | March 12, 2008 | John F. Allen
    Now that even Rush is speaking truthfully about the election, some inescapable facts need to be considered. Forget Obama’s given middle name. It won’t be important. By Election Day everyone will think of his middle name as McGovern. Barack McGovern Osama will lose by a wide margin for the following reasons: * Twenty percent of White Democrats already ADMIT they will not vote for him (Pew).Moreover they say they WILL vote for McCain, a double hit. *No one can win giving away 20% of his base. * Forty three percent over all ADMIT they will not vote for him (...

    When Barack Obama announced a year ago that he was running for president, I scoffed. How could a black man whose middle name is Hussein and who looks like he is 25 years old win the White House? To be sure, he was a U.S. senator, but he had been elected largely on a fluke when his toughest Democratic and Republican opponents were felled by scandals. "He'll fade by December," I assured anyone who would listen. One year later, Obama is the front-runner for the Democratic nomination, having built a formidable coalition of whites and blacks, Democrats and independents, and...

    In fall 1975 I remember sitting in the Stanford student lounge watching two apparently educated and bright students compare their pet rocks, as the craze spread all over Silicon Valley and then went national. By summer few would admit they had purchased one. Never underestimate the ability of mass wired consumer society to go hysterical. Something like that happened with the Obama campaign in mid-February, as he became the new generation's pet rock. No one knew what he had done; no one knew what he would do; no one cared whether they knew; all only wanted to be a part...

    Michael Goldfarb observes that the Obama "dipdive" videos are unhealthy, creepy and deeply disturbing. The Dipdive videos were the creepy culmination of the Obama campaign's messianic rhetoric. And they even seemed to make the campaign's most fanatical supporters a bit queasy. Obama's rhetoric was always empty, but coming from the man himself, eloquent as he is, everyone seemed willing to overlook how silly it all was. Once you get Jessica Alba and Scarlett Johanson repeating the same phrases and chanting his name as though he were some kind of political immortal--well, it all became far more transparent. What is even...

    Just one more reason why its scary to think of Obama, the man with few political accomplishments, in the White House. The man is a naive Socialist: In a new interview with National Journal magazine, an intelligence adviser to Barack Obama’s presidential campaign broke with his candidate’s position opposing retroactive legal protection for telecommunications companies being sued for cooperating with a dubious U.S. government domestic surveillance program.“I do believe strongly that [telecoms] should be granted that immunity,” former CIA official John Brennan told National Journal reporter Shane Harris in the interview. “They were told to [cooperate] by the appropriate authorities...

    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) ― An Iowa Republican congressman said that terrorists would be "dancing in the streets" if Democratic candidate Barack Obama were to win the presidency. An Obama spokesman said such comments "have no place in our politics." U.S. Rep. Steve King based his prediction on Obama's pledge to pull troops out of Iraq, his Kenyan heritage and his middle name, Hussein. "The radical Islamists, the al Qaeda ... would be dancing in the streets in greater numbers than they did on Sept. 11 because they would declare victory in this war on terror," King said in an...

    Barack Obama had a theory. It was that the voters are tired of the partisan paralysis of the past 20 years. The theory was that if Obama could inspire a grass-roots movement with a new kind of leadership, he could ride it to the White House and end gridlock in Washington. Obama has built his entire campaign on this theory. He’s run against negativity and cheap-shot campaigning. He’s claimed that there’s an “awakening” in this country — people “hungry for a different kind of politics.” This message has made him the front-runner. It has brought millions of new voters into...

    The Top Nine "Changes" Barack Obama Would Make as PresidentBy John HawkinsFriday, March 7, 2008 "All change is not growth; as all movement is not forward." -- Ellen Glasgow As people who have followed Barack Obama closely over the last few months have long since realized, there has been very little substance to the man's campaign besides his determination to lose -- oops, I mean "end" -- the war in Iraq. If you boil Obama's appeal down to its essential core, most of his supporters seem to like him because he's a relatively young, charismatic, black man who talks a...

    The morning after Tuesday's primaries, Hillary Clinton's campaign released a memo titled "The Path to the Presidency." I eagerly dug into the paper, figuring it would explain how Clinton would obtain the Democratic nomination despite an enormous deficit in delegates. Instead, the memo offered a series of arguments as to why Clinton should run against John McCain - i.e., "Hillary is seen as the one who can get the job done" - but nothing about how she actually could. Is she planning a third-party run? Does she think Obama is going to die? The memo does not say. The reason...

    Bill Clinton: Hillary-Obama Ticket Would Be "Almost Unstoppable Force" By Greg Sargent - March 8, 2008, 3:00PM Now Bill Clinton is saying it. Here he is, floating the idea of a joint Hillary-Obama ticket at a town-hall meeting today in Mississippi: "She said yesterday and she said the day after her big wins in Texas and Ohio and Rhode Island that she was very open to that and I think she answered explicitly yes yesterday," Clinton began, referring to Hillary's own answers on the topic in recent days. "I know that she has always been open to it, because she...

    Campaigning in Casper, Wyo., Friday night for the 12 delegates to come out of Saturday's Democratic county caucuses, Sen. Barack Obama refused the notion of becoming the vice presidential candidate on this fall's party ticket. Obama was asked by a television reporter, "Can you ever see yourself on the same ticket as Sen. Clinton?" And the freshman Illinois senator replied: "Well, you know, I think it’s premature. You won’t see me as a vice presidential candidate -- you know, I’m running for president. We have won twice as many states as Senator Clinton, and have a higher popular vote, and...

    Progressive evangelicals believe they can end the dominance of the religious right A group of American evangelicals are on a mission to put moral issues at the heart of the most intense presidential campaign in years. Those used to the thundering rhetoric of the religious right will expect a tirade against abortion and gay marriage. But in an interview this week Jim Wallis says: "Top of the list is what happens to the poor. Poverty is the principal Biblical political issue." He adds: "climate change is now a mainstream evangelical issue. Human rights, Darfur too." Wallis is one of the...

    Mr. Keane nevertheless said he holds the former first lady in high esteem."Senator Clinton is very knowledgeable about national security and is probably going to be strong on defense," he said. "I have no doubts whatsoever that if she were president in January '09 she would not act irresponsibly and issue orders to conduct an immediate withdrawal from Iraq, regardless of the consequences, and squander the gains that have been made." Mr. Keane added that he could not imagine any president in the White House making that kind of decision.The senator's campaign differed with that assessment. "Senator Clinton speaks for...

    This is the nightmare scenario that wakes me up at night.  And its so easy to see it develop.Hillary wins big in Penn and PR, while Obama continues to sweep up some smaller states.  Neither is close to the majority number, but Hillary refuses to give in.More and more polling begins to suggest — as Pew does today — that Obama will lose a significant number of blue collar “Archie Bunker” democrats that are currently supporting Hillary, but will vote for McCain before Obama.  This will give McCain states like Ohio, Michigan, and Penn.  Superdelegate/party leaders will know that they cannot...

    March 8, 2008 -- A top foreign policy adviser to Barack Obama resigned yesterday after calling Hillary Rodham Clinton "a monster." Samantha Power, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author and Harvard prof who posed last summer for a glamorous pictorial in Vogue, came under fire after firing off the insult. She further embarrassed Obama by saying his plan to withdraw from Iraq could become inoperative if he wins the White House.

    A top foreign policy adviser to Republican presidential hopeful Sen. John McCain accused his two Democratic rivals yesterday of unilateralist "cowboy diplomacy" for demanding a re-negotiation of the NAFTA free-trade deal with Canada and Mexico. In a debate of senior foreign policy surrogates for Mr. McCain and Democratic Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama, McCain adviser Randy Scheunemann used a line of attack often employed by Democrats against the Bush administration. "I thought the one thing your two campaigns agreed on was that the era of 'cowboy diplomacy' was over," he said, adding that Mr. McCain was a strong...
