Obama’s Launch Personal Attacks on Palin – & The Daily Roundup!

Posted by iusbvision on September 9, 2008

Barack Obama: “You know, you can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig.”

Michelle Obama:

Obama then moved on to politics, where she first brought up her husband’s vice-presidential choice. “I think it was a really good pick-Senator Joe Biden,” she said, and later added, “People say they have amazing chemistry, and it’s true.”

Obama continued with talk about Biden when she said, “What you learn about Barack from his choice is that he’s not afraid of smart people.” The crowd softly chuckled.

 How presidential……

CONGRESS AND ENERGY – THE VIDEO:

The Hunt for Sarah October:

Democrats have airdropped a mini-army of 30 lawyers, investigators and opposition researchers into Anchorage, the state capital Juneau and Mrs. Palin’s hometown of Wasilla to dig into her record and background.

Citizens from Wasilla, Alaska are calling talk shows and stating that an army of press has decended upon them, and if they have good things to say about Sarah they don’t want to hear it, they are only interested in talking to people who have something bad to say. Reporters are also hanging out at Palin’s church and former church, just waiting for something they can use.

ONLY 29% OF OBAMA SUPPORTERS BELIEVE THE SUPREME COURT SHOULD RULE ON THE LAW

While 82% of voters who support McCain believe the justices should rule on what is in the Constitution, just 29% of Barack Obama’s supporters agree. Just 11% of McCain supporters say judges should rule based on the judge’s sense of fairness, while nearly half (49%) of Obama supporters agree.

POLL: The Press is Biased

 According to Rasmussen, fully 68% of voters believe that “most reporters try to help the candidate they want to win.” And — no surprise — 49% of those surveyed believe reporters are backing Barack Obama, while just 14% think the media is in the tank for Sen. McCain.

Meanwhile, 51% of those surveyed thought the press was “trying to hurt” Mrs. Palin with its coverage.

Perhaps most troubling for the press corps, though, was this finding: “55% said media bias is a bigger problem for the electoral process than large campaign donations.”

AFL-CIO and University of Minnesota employees and facilities were used to host and organize the violent anarchist protestors that caused so much damage over the convention. No objection yet from the university.

Obama: Recession may mean I have to delay repealing the Bush tax cuts…

I have read Obama’s economic plan. Raise tarriffs, limitetrade, raise taxes on business’ and folks he calls rich,  and a big assault on capital in general. Smoot-Hawley is back? All we would need is some bad Federal Reserve policy and that would match up all of the government policies that were in place before the great depression. I am not fear mongering folks and I am not kidding. Obama, like so many neo-marxist academics, does not understand economics worth a darn. Don’t tell me that I don’t know he is a neo-marxist, after what the University of Chicago released about Obama’s work with the Annenberg Project, the evidence is in HERE and HERE.

GOLDBERG:

The most unsportsmanlike conduct in the days to come will be the search for Palin gaffes, of which there undoubtedly will be many. The media will call fouls on her that they never call on the other candidates. Over the last week, Obama misspoke and referred to his “Muslim faith” on ABC’s “This Week” and told a rally how excited he was to be in “New Pennsylvania.” Perhaps that’s one of the 57 states he once claimed to campaign in?

And let’s not forget Biden, whose gaffes are the unavoidable byproduct of his limitless gasbaggery. Biden could shout on “Meet the Press,” “Get these squirrels off of me!” and the collective response would be, “There goes Joe again.” But if Palin flubs the name of the deputy agriculture minister of Kyrgyzstan, the media will blow their whistles saying she’s unprepared for the job.

New Orleans Times-Picayune: Jindal takes full command in crisis – Governor pushes bureaucracy aside.

You know, I could almost write a book about the aftermath of hurricane Katrina as I have enough research stored to do it. Notice how you don’t hear about Mississippi and Katrina? Mississippi’s Governor was former GOP Chairman Haley Barbour. Mississippi took the storm worse than New Orleans did, but Governor Barbour had his act together.

It is the states job to coordinate the federal to local response as the state and local are the first responders. Former Governor Blanco did not even follow the state’s published emergency plans. I remember Mayor Ray Nagin telling CNN about how President Bush, Blanco and Nagin were on Air Force One, the President had a martial law order in hand so the feds could legally take over for the state in the response. Blanco said she needed 24 hours to think about it, says Nagin, “24 hours while my people died.” A few hours later Bush sent in General Honore and the military to take command (possibly illegally) and let Governor Blanco twist in the wind. Bush had no choice as the humanity of the situation was out of hand.

Katrina was unprecedented in two ways, the sheer size of the event, and the fact that a sitting governor would not coordinate or cooperate with federal and local authorities in a disaster. No one ever planned for that contingency.

THESE NUMBERS ARE IMPORTANT:

In the new survey, more voters call themselves Republicans. Now 48% say they’re Democrats or lean to the Democratic Party; 47% say they’re Republicans or lean to the GOP.

Not since February 2005, right after Bush’s second inauguration, have Republicans been within a single point of Democrats in party identification.

What’s more, voters by 48%-45% support the Democratic candidate in their congressional district, the party’s narrowest advantage this year.

Party Identification numbers are a very serious indicator of where the public is and it is because of this change that shows that McCain’s surge in numbers is more than a mere convention bump. This means that the Republican Brand is back and the party is making real headways in redefining itself. Fortunately McCain seems pretty serious and Palin’s record of destroying her own party machine for change is not in dispute.

The congresional numbers indicate that Democrats are vulnerable in Congress. I hesitate to say that a landslide election is coming, but the Democrats are in serious, serious trouble.

Speaking of IMPORTANT NUMBERS:

McCain has picked up 20 points among white women. This kind of movement among women has not been seen since Reagan.

 Hate in Canada Alive and Well – Look at What the CBC Printed:

Palin was not a sure choice, not even for the stolidly Republican ladies branch of Citizens for a Tackier America. No, she isn’t even female really. She’s a type, and she comes in male form too.

Palin has a toned-down version of the porn actress look favoured by this decade’s woman, the overtreated hair, puffy lips and permanently alarmed expression. Bristol has what is known in Britain as the look of the teen mum, the “pramface.”

And that isn’t the half of it. 

P.S. Remember Mark Steyn.
