  • NEW VIDEO: "The Plot to Overthrow the United States of America" (10/25/08)

    Just found this video through one of the Hillary Clinton "PUMA" (Pro McCain/Palin) websites. At 55 minutes it is rather long. It does however show that 0bama's own statements tied to his radical associations make him a danger to this great country. I encourage everyone to watch it and to pass it along.
  • Rolling Stone: McCain a 'Mean Little Fu_ _er,' That Puts Own 'Advancement Above All Else'

    The Rolling Stone has a long attack piece on John McCain in its October issue that really rakes the GOP presidential candidate over the coals. The piece indulges in quite a lot of name-calling and dismisses his patriotism, bravery, and integrity in nearly every paragraph. It's quite a vicious attack piece, really. This slanderous piece doesn't even take a little time to get warmed up as it emerges, guns blazing, in the first few paragraphs by calling John McCain an "undisciplined, spoiled brat" and insisting that he once went to Rio to "get laid" despite being married, with three kids...
  • Sen. Graham Responds To Bailout Vote

    WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement after the vote in the U.S. House of Representatives against the financial rescue plan. He said: “I have never been more disappointed in the Congress than I am today. I hope every member of the House of Representatives—Republican and Democrat—who voted against this legislation will work in the next twenty-four hours to improve the bill. Now is the time to put the national interest above the self interest. “Speaker Pelosi’s partisan comments before the vote obviously did not help matters. Now is not the time for extreme partisanship...
  • McCain Likes Democrat Andrew Cuomo for SEC Chief

    McCain Likes Democrat Andrew Cuomo for SEC Chief Monday, September 22, 2008 By Susan Jones, Senior Editor ( - If he's elected president, Republican Sen. John McCain says he would want Democrat Andrew Cuomo to chair the Securities and Exchange Commission. McCain, who has called for Republican SEC chief Chris Cox to resign, made the comment on the CBS program "60 Minutes" Sunday night. "I'm curious," CBS Correspondent Scott Pelley told McCain. "If you want to fire Chris Cox, the chairman of the SEC, who would you replace him with?" McCain responded: "This may sound a little unusual, but I've...

    George Will lashes out against big government, McCain's claims by Chris Knape | The Grand Rapids Press Thursday September 18, 2008, 10:58 PM GRAND RAPIDS -- Conservative columnist George Will practically boiled out of his trademark bow tie Thursday night, lashing out at Republican presidential nominee John McCain's call for Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Christopher Cox's resignation. Will's keynote appearance at the downtown JW Marriott capped the first day of a West Michigan Regional Policy Conference, which organizers said was trying to avoid being "West Michigan polite." Will took a call from Cox shortly before taking the stage Thursday...

    Shaves six points off Obama’s lead in Gallup - An uncharacteristic care package o’ optimism to tide you over for a few hours. The meme du jour isn’t Palinmania but the after-the-fact rave reviews for McCain’s speech trickling in from unlikely sources. Sample error? Maybe not: Check out the grading in Survey USA’s new national poll. For some reason the data from Tampa specifically is getting attention today, but in fact the speech played almost as well across the country as it did down there. Gallup’s got him within two now nationally after trailing by eight just four days ago;...

    YouTube ^ | Future President John McCain
    I have never been so moved by a political speech. The speech up until the final crescendo was workmanlike. It was only at the end that I realized it was all to lay the foundation for that incredible ending. It lays the details and facts that form the basis of the powerful emotion at the end -- made all the more powerful in that it is grounded in the real details of this man's history and the basis of his love of country. To hear the cheers rising, and McCain struggling to raise his broken arms higher with each round...

    LOS ANGELES, Sept 5 (Reuters) - A record 38.9 million U.S. TV viewers watched John McCain accept the Republican nomination for president on Thursday, beating the record set last week by Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, Nielsen Media Research reported. Obama had an average 38.4 million viewers watching his speech accepting the nomination for his party last week. McCain's tally also was higher than the 37.2 million Americans who tuned in to hear Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin's speech on Wednesday.

    National Review ^ | [Jay Nordlinger]
    Pointlets on McCain’s Speech [Jay Nordlinger] 1. I’ll start by repeating what I said earlier, in my “instant react”: He was himself and he said what he believes. And that’s probably the most you can ask for in a candidate. 2. The introductory video was effective in its use of humor — “Some called him a hothead. Some called him things that can’t be repeated.” (I paraphrase.) Nicely done. 3. Seeing pictures of McCain’s dad reminded me that WFB knew him — stayed with him out in Hawaii. 4. “John McCain’s life was spared — perhaps he had more to...

And let me offer an advance warning to the old, big spending, do nothing, me first, country second Washington crowd: change is coming." "The constant partisan rancor that stops us from solving these problems isn't a cause, it's a symptom. It's what happens when people go to Washington to work for themselves and not you. Again and again, I've worked with members of both parties to fix problems that need to be fixed. That's how I will...

    Everyone knew it was coming but I thought they’d wait longer to do it. Presumably they decided to take advantage of the raging river of information and push it out now rather than wait until things quiet down, when the media can focus all of its attention on it. Here’s the PDF. The recitation of facts is only around 10 pages; pay special attention to the short section on the Bailey phone call, which is where she’s most likely to have problems. This is, ostensibly, a legal document written for ethics investigators, but the true aim of course is to...

    As a graduate of one of the military's war college command and staff courses, it's been amazing to watch the McCain campaign in action to date. During the period between the primaries and the conventions, they've been running a classic, pre-emptive guerrilla war against the Obama camp. During this time, McCain maintained a relatively low profile and husbanded his resources, only acting when the Obama camp made a move that could substantially widen the race. And, McCain always attacked Obama's strengths, or "centers of gravity" in military parlance, and did so very effectively. Here are some examples: Argument: Obama's very...
