    Have you ever been to a place, maybe a “buffet-style” restaurant or a potluck supper, where they had so many good, tasty things to eat that it was truly difficult to decide what to put on your plate? The fried chicken looks good but then you spy across the table some yummy looking meatloaf and, oh, there is a bowl of mashed potatoes next to a casserole dish filled with your favorite macaroni and cheese. You ask yourself: Will there be enough room on my plate? (Or we ask: Will there be enough room in my stomach for dessert? They...
  • Weak Speech from an Indecisive Obama : Short on Specifics and Full of Holes

    One problem with President Obama’s Oval Office speech was his declaration that 90 percent of the oil spill would be captured in “coming days and weeks.” Ah, if only government were that strong and powerful. Trouble is, the spill rate late yesterday afternoon was again revised upward toward 60,000 barrels per day from the prior estimate of 25,000. To most Americans, and especially those in the Gulf, it’s the spill rate of capture that matters most. Perhaps there’s a magic wand to cure this problem — maybe a spill-rate de-stimulus package — but so far the magic cure remains elusive....

    This guy has played more damn golf in nine months than George Bush did in ALL 8 years in office! It's not like the economy is tanking hard, now they say it'll be a 'jobless recovery', Iran's working on its first nuke, which could be the thing that just happens to begin WWIII, and spikes oil to $800 a barrel (if you'll be able to get it), and Afghanistan still awaits a decision from THE ONE. But hey, we can get another 18 in today, right? Here's the bill. Send him one and ask him to politely shove it where...

    TALLAHASSEE -- Republican Tom Gallagher is betting his political life on an appeal to Christian and social conservatives. And at least one of his supporters in those groups say their own future is at stake in Gallagher's quest to be governor. Gallagher has earned the endorsement of Florida Right to Life, as well as vocal support of most social conservative leaders in the state. His goal: Win the hearts of Republicans most likely to get out and vote on Sept. 5.

    I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...

    Bush’s giant Right Wing Noise Machine (RWNM) loves to preach about the Bush economic miracle. In fact, the RWNM’s current thinking is Bush doesn’t spend enough time talking about his economic triumphs. If only he did, then everyone would fall in line and believe in the great Bush economic miracle. There is one problem with this argument: it’s a lie. Any way you look at the Bush economy, it comes up short. Today, I want to compare Bush’s job creation record with other economic recoveries. As usual, Bush comes up way short. The national Bureau of Economic Research has identified...

    Concluding Question: The Meta-Group and the United States Government It seems clear that the meta-group, with its influential connections on at least three continents, was powerful enough to effect changes, through the Russian 9/11, in Russian history. The question arises whether they could similarly effect changes in American history as well. As we have seen Russian sources claim that the U.S. Government has had access to he meta-group, for such especially sensitive projects as the assassination of Abu al Walid al-Hamadi. They claim the meta-group's involvement in a number of U.S.-sponsored regime changes in eastern Europe, from the overthrow of...

    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

    On Monday, December 8, 2003, President Bush signed into law a Medicare prescription drug benefits package designed to help American seniors pay for their medications. This month, the Kerry campaign released a TV ad attacking President Bush’s Medicare record stating, “The very next day George Bush imposes the biggest Medicare premium increase in history while prescription drug costs still skyrocket.” There are several problems with this ad, namely that fact that 1) Kerry skipped the December 8 vote and 2) Kerry voted to support the increase in Medicare premiums that he now criticizes. The Kerry campaign offers no specifics on...

    The Labor Department reported this morning that the U.S. unemployment rate dropped to 5.4% in August, down from 5.5% in July, and that our economy created 144,000 new jobs in August. July job creation was revised upward to 73,000 from the 32,000 initially reported. 78,000 new jobs were added in June. Looks like the July numbers were a blip and we’re getting back to the torrid pace of job creation of May (248,000), April (346,000), and March (353,000). After President Bush’s stirring speech last night and the good economic news, just how will Senator Franken-Kerry put a negative spin on...

    Will John Kerry issue in an age of a “stronger America” as his campaign bumper stickers state? I have found quite the contrary, and have provided documentation. In the mid 1960’s he tried to avoid military service for 12 months so he could continue his studies in Paris, according to Britain’s Telegraph. [1] Then he served 4 ½ months in Vietnam. Though he claimed a Purple Heart for his first “injury,” his own diary for that day states, “we hadn't been shot at yet.” [2] According to the Military Order of the Purple Heart, you have to be wounded to...

Kerry is still flailing, trying to cover up a career punctuated by extreme left-wing politics and flip-flopping by talking to voters about his military service. He squandered his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention by trying to convince Americans that his tour of duty in Vietnam will make him a great commander...

    While reading the Kerry material presented on FR and elsewhere, I've started to notice mentions of Kerry being in a funk for extended periods of time. One reference mentioned Kerry staying with him for about a week after a campaign loss and Kerry not saying a word the whole time. Another story alluded to a converation with Kerry and Miss "T" in which he admitted seeing a therapist for the angst as he put it. I think there's another aspect to Kerry that's not common knowledge. If it's true, it can be pieced together. FR is the place to do...

    Whatever you usually think of him, tune into Savage live now! He's spending the show (again) on getting the swiftboat vets story out there. His guest will be, for the second time, the machine gunner who served with John Kerry on his boat. Steve Gardner, I believe is his name. Also, Savage is expressing his disappointment with Fox News, specifically O'Reilly, for spiking this story and essentially calling the veterans liars. Savage says it's because O'Reilly wants to get John Kerry on his show.

    These days, everybody knows that a presidential campaign has to have a rapid-response machine. Rising above opposition attacks is so . . . Dukakis. And everybody also agrees that you have to start hitting hard early.

The next generation of political consultants learned a lesson, and now, viewers with the bad luck to live in swing states are being barraged with both attacks and counterattacks while the snow is still falling.

    ASHINGTON, March 8 — President Bush struck back at Senator John F. Kerry today, accusing the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee of indecision, of being "deeply irresponsible" on intelligence spending and of being the wrong person to lead America in a time of peril. "My opponent clearly has strong beliefs," Mr. Bush told a friendly gathering at a campaign fund-raiser in Dallas. "They just don't last very long." And when Mr. Kerry has been consistent, the president said, he has been consistently wrong. "My opponent is against personal retirement accounts, against putting patients in charge of Medicare, against tax relief," Mr....

    BOSTON, March 5 — When Senator John Kerry was speaking to Jewish leaders a few days ago, he said Israel's construction of a barrier between it and Palestinian territories was a legitimate act of self-defense. But in October, he told an Arab-American group that it was "provocative and counterproductive" and a "barrier to peace." On Feb. 5, Mr. Kerry reacted to Massachusetts' highest court's decision legalizing same-sex marriages by saying, "I personally believe the court is dead wrong." But when asked on Feb. 24 why he believed the decision was not correct, he shot back, "I didn't say it wasn't."...

    People say it shouldn’t be a beauty contest. Lawmakers such as Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) dismiss the subject of presidential looks as merely a frivolous concern of the media, but party nominations and capturing the White House are not merely the stuff of dry debates on the issues. When you’re a man seeking the presidency, everything about you, including your masculinity, matters.

John Kerry is a national candidate. Second, that he is strong on national security. Third, that he is a tough veteran, a patriot with "courage." His Vietnam gunboat mates were even there to...
