    I’m thinking that Republicans really don’t want Obama defeated badly enough. We are very close to pulling defeat from the jaws of victory. Even we Conservatives seem hell-bent on destroying, or helping the media destroy, everyone of our candidates one at a time by backbiting and devouring each other over “one-issue” disagreements. Some Johnny-one-notes have “Abortion” as their issue. For many, it’s “non-Electability” or a candidate is “not a good Debater” or confuses “Elvis’ birthday” with the anniversary of his death. And for a true Conservative, Rick Santorum, he will be undone because, bless his heart, he has the “Charisma”...

    The good news for President Obama is his popular support among blacks is holding steady at 91%.The bad news is no other group of potential voters likes him that much.In fact, 29 days before his first midterm elections, the Democrat's approval ratings remain mired below 50%.A new Gallup Poll this morning finds his approval rating for September was 45%, almost the same as August's 44%. Obama's not exceeded the crucial 50% level in a single month so far this year.Read the rest at the Los Angeles Times here -------------------------------------------------------------------------The same poll says only 36% of whites still haven't given in to their latent...

    OK, I am fed up. My personal email has been flooded with multiple emails from the yahoo FR backup list, and I am sick of it. Those of you sending stuff to the yahoo list, cut it out, right now! Today, I have been bombarded, and have gone to my control preferences, sending all messages immediately to "junk", which is automatically deleted from my computer. If yahoo e-mail lists are that easily co-opted, I think we all should go cancel the FR yahoo account. Maybe I am having a bad night? Is anyone else getting flooded with unwanted, unimportant, redundant,...

    Experts: No End To Volcano Ash In SightApril 17, 2010 (CNN) -- Weather experts predicted Friday that a volcanic ash causing chaos to air traffic across Europe would affect the region well into the weekend and possibly beyond as the dust cloud continued to spread. Scientists said it was too soon to predict when the Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland would cease spewing ash, raising the prospect of thousands more grounded flights in coming days. Prevailing westerly winds are expected to fan the massive plume of dust from an erupting volcano in Iceland further east and north, according to predictions from...

  • Obama: Lipstick on a Pig (Did he just call Sarah Palin a pig and a stinky fish?)

    Amie Parnes reports from Lebanon, VA: Obama poked fun of McCain and Palin's new "change" mantra. "You can put lipstick on a pig," he said as the crowd cheered. "It's still a pig." "You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change. It's still gonna stink." "We've had enough of the same old thing." The crowd apparently took the "lipstick" line as a reference to Palin, who described the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull in a single word: "lipstick."

    Great more class in the White House… Not sure if the marble can handle boom box DB's…. Its kind of simple…she doesn’t have enough experience to be bumped up to pres if Mc has a glitch…But she has a document record of more government/cival experience than OB and he's running for Pres…. So I would say she has more than enough experience to be VP and more experiance than OB to be Pres… Make sence?
