Going negative against Democrat Barack Obama isn't just a campaign strategy for Republican John McCain. It's also a good formula for selling books.

“Going negative” or just stating the facts? “Swiftboating” in the leftist lexicon is to lie or besmearch. In truth, the swiftboaters were real soldiers who served on swiftboats who knew the facts — about JFK. So when I read “going negative” I suspect more leftist news slanting.

If you want to know what the dims are up to, listen to their accusations against others.

They DO the things they accuse others of.

I found it interesting that the writer failed to mention Senator McCain's book, “Faith of My Fathers”, I believe is the title. However, he managed to mention Michael Moore's drivel, “Stupid White Men”-—of whom, he, Moore, has to be the “stupidest” (forgive my English)!

This was an interesting article from a psychological standpoint. The media has admitted hyping this guy, Obama, shamelessly. Yet when the Republican Party uses the other media available to them, the “old media” complains about it? “Fairness” is obviously not in their vocabulary.

I prefer the Ann Coulter definition of “Swiftboating” - providing irrefutable evidence that a Democrat lied.

Fairness will not be obtained until they have no opposition.
At that point, they will begin pointing fingers and purging each other for various ideological crimes.

If you could afford only to purchase ONE book, which of the three books would it be?

Jerome Corsi's "The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality,"
Fredosso's "The Case Against Barack Obama: The Unlikely Rise and Unexamined Agenda of the Media's Favorite Candidate"
Dick Morris' "Fleeced: How Barack Obama, Media Mockery of Terrorist Threats, Liberals Who Want to Kill Talk Radio, the Do-Nothing Congress, Companies That Help Iran, and Washington Lobbyists for Foreign Governments Are Scamming Us ... and What to Do About It."

I saw Jerome Corsi on Fox and Friends this morning debating Bob Beckle about the book. Beckle was so angry about this book he was fit to be tied. I checked my library, but of course they don't have it. I have to read it just to find out what has got Beckle so wound up!

By the way, Beckle kept attacking Corsi for things he has said or written in the past, but Beckle couldn't defend Obama, just attack Corsi!

“MSM fails to bury the relevant facts about Obama and frets about it. “

Just like the MSM has pretended the Edwards love child story doesnt exist.

Dangit! Why wont the MSM wish away the *real* bad news ... hey, that China earthquake - dont report it, so it wont be real. And high gas prices ... just pretend they are really low, that way we wont feel so bad. Nope, the only ‘bad news’ that they cant report is the bad news about Democrats. (/sarc)

“I saw Jerome Corsi on Fox and Friends this morning debating Bob Beckle about the book.”

Am I in a time warp? Is it 2004 again?
No wonder Beckel is upset ... they cant believe it is happening to them *again*.

I have looked at all three. I can’t hold a hardback, so I am looking for CDs. Only obama nation is available, and it is abridged.
