HOLY COW! Rasmussen: Palin 47%, Biden 44% in Make-believe Presidential Match-up

Sarah Palin bests Joseph Biden 47% to 44% in a hypothetical head-to-head match-up for the presidency, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey (see crosstabs).

Just over half of voters view both of the vice presidential candidates at least somewhat favorably, although 35% rate their opinion of Palin as Very Favorable while only 23% feel that way about Biden. Twenty-eight percent (28%) have a very unfavorable opinion of the woman governor of Alaska versus 20% who say that about the longtime Delaware senator.

 

Our Take: While the unfair and silly attacks on Palin have helped her, they have also done Palin damage as they are trying to define her before she has a chance to define herself. McCain Campaign should go on a more specific offense on a few of the allegations….but they should do so in a way that pokes some light fun at the elite media and the obama camp so you don’t appear to get off message and dragged down to the mud.

Obama ad says McCain opposes equal pay for women – but guess who paid women less than men….

Posted by iusbvision on September 16, 2008

The first time Obama started saying this we pointed out HERE how Obama actually pays women less and McCain pays women more.

Now Palinmania has swept the nation and deperate times result in desperate actions. So now Obama has an advertisement accusing McCain of opposing equal pay for women. The McCain camp should retaliate hard with the facts on this one and take this issue to the offense.

In the mean time, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review isn’t buying it and points out Obama’s hypocrisy.

Pittsburgh Trib Review – “With McCain Women Make More” The Trib-Review points out that inspite of a new Obama ad saying that McCain opposes equal pay for women it is Obama is the one who doesn’t practice what he preaches:

Rogers points to Senate Records showing that women working in Sen. Obama’s senate office were paid an average of $9,000 less than men.

It appears that in the McCain senate office, the women on average are paid more than the men.

And where is the rest of the elite media on this???

McCain Way Ahead in Florida – Near Even in New Jersey!

Posted by iusbvision on September 16, 2008

While McCain isn’t quite yet even in New jersey according to all the polls – he does have momentum to the margin of error range. If this trend continues a short time longer it will be a dead heat – in New Jersey.

The contest between Barack Obama and John McCain in New Jersey is too close to call, with a new Quinnipiac University poll showing the battle for the state’s fifteen electoral votes at 48%-45% among likely voters. Obama led McCain by ten percentage points, 51%-41% in an August Quinnipiac poll.

This is the fourth independent poll within the last week to show New Jersey as an emerging battleground state in the presidential campaign.

WOW – Abortion attempt survivor schools Obama on his born-alive legislation opposition (better known as infanticide)

Posted by iusbvision on September 16, 2008

 

Not even radical pro-abortion groups like NARAL oppose this type of legislation. So what is up with Obama?

Nope, No Elitism or Hollywood Values Here: Hollywood fund raisers for Obama $28,500 a plate.

OBAMA BOOM ECONOMY: RECORD BANK IN BEV HILLS, $28,500 A PLATE!
Tue Sep 16 2008 06:25:55 ET

The nation’s financials may be in a spiral, but cash is flowing into the Obama campaign faster than Marvin Hamlisch can play “Niagara”!

Yesterday, Obama declared how we are in “the most serious financial crisis since the Great Depression.”

Today he will host a dinner in Beverly Hills — costing attendees $28,500 dollars each!

Hundreds of high rollers, including some of the biggest executives in film, television and music, will munch gourmet chow and hang out with the candidate.

Streisand will then sing at the five-star Beverly Wilshire, no doubt reviving the Depression-era standard “Happy Days Are Here Again” with new urgency.

Obama is set to break a single-day fundraising record of $9 million.

Tuesday’s events in Tinseltown come after Obama racked up a record-breaking $66 million dollars in fundraising last month, beating his previous high mark of $55 million last winter.

“The fundamentals of our economy are strong, but these are still very, very difficult times,” rival McCain said, sunny-side up.  

“Sen. McCain, what economy are you talking about?” smiled Obama.

Developing…
