Joe the Plumber. You remember the story. Obama rolls up to his house one day. Joe plucks up his courage and asks a question of Barack Obama, the subject of which Mr. Obama would apparently rather not discuss. Result?  Joe gets attacked by the press, the unions and the Democrats. In short, they try to […]

O. both think John McCain is wrong on security? Is that why they both voted against the Surge he called for? The one that won the war? Regarding McCain’s […]

WJBC/1230 is reporting: Could Illinois Governor Blagojevich suffer the same fate as convicted former Governor George Ryan? Sources tell CBS 2 News Chicago that Federal agents claim to have enough evidence to indict Blagojevich on fraud and conspiracy charges.

So, when Obama was in front oa AIPAC, he told them Jerusalem must remain undivided. Next day, (Actually only a few hours later ) he remembers his freinds in Hamas who endorsed him, and says the future of the city should be negotiated. He calls it poor phrasing. I call it poor lying. It figures. Cynthia McKinney […]

Been getting downright crazy traffic the last couple months, and none of it bigger than the last week or so. No particular reason I can see. Usually when we get traffic spikes it’s due to one article or another that some other blogger or feed site has linked. Not so, here. No idea why, but […]

Some interesting thoughts from The War Room, this morning on that Obama tape, on their radio show this morning. Sources, apparently, are telling The War Room, that the tape (Actually, a digital vid) does in fact exist, and is in the hands of, among others, the Clinton campaign.  That report brings up some speculation. Between […]

And the first thing Rezko pal and now-Democrat nominee for president Barack Obama says in response to the guilty verdicts is, “This isn’t the Tony Rezko I knew …” Um, reality check, please? Yeah, really. I mean, how many times are we going to see this line used? Great one, Sis Addendum (Bit): Powerline’s Hindrocket […]

Mark Steyn, as per normal, hits one out of the park with his writeup of Obama and the not so. Reverend Jeremiah Wright. Obama is all about backing away from this racist hate filled clown, now that his statements have been brought out. But should we point out that there are a number of others […]

Barrack Obama is increasingly exposing himself as someone who has serious problems with the truth: The Chicago Sun-Times today:In an extensive 80-minute interview with the Sun-Times,White House hopeful Barack Obama laid out just how close he and indicted Chicago businessman Tony Rezko grew personally and financially. Rezko could have donated as much as $250,000 to […]

(Chicago Sun-Times)-He was “the man behind the curtain” whose pervasive influence in the Blagojevich administration stacked state boards and lined his pockets, prosecutors charged Thursday as they opened their highly anticipated corruption case against Tony Rezko. But lawyers for the one-time fund-raiser for Sen. Barack Obama painted a drastically different picture of the multimillionaire, saying […]

Snowing in Rochester at the moment. Nothing newsworthy about that, particularly, except that the line of snow as this is being written runs from north and east of here to the south southwest, all the way down to New Orleans. Here, we’re expecting a foot of it. In March. Global warming, of course.  Oh… I […]

Now, this is interesting. It appears based on reports I’m seeing from ABC, that Tony Rezko is $50m in debt, and is living on handouts of $7500/mo. So, the question becomes, how he was able to buy a bit of property from Obama for over a half million dollars. The more we peel back the […]

When pols power is under threat, all that crap goes away to be replaced by sleeze and attack. I note a story this morning at MSNBC, which reports on the comments from Barrack Obama Campaign manager David Plouffe, who has started what only weeks ago was labeled ‘name calling’, ‘mud slinging’, and was generally speaking, […]
