This is a reality check for everyone. Bloody hilarious …
The growth of our GDP in the last financial quarter was 3.3%. Which is good from a historical perspective. OK. This is not a recession. I repeat. To all liberal whackos, this is not a recession. Unemployment is 5.7%, this is from a historical perspective referred to as ‘very low’. Yes, the housing bubble continues to pop. But the rest of the economy appears to be OK.
Considering we are in a war, this is not a bad economy. Bush’s monetary policy has not helped, yet the economy refuse to collapse, despite his abuse. Given FIVE years of the Democrats, and their choir in the MSM, publicly praying for a recession, there appears to be some resilience in the economy. So lets get to the meat of it. Do you think the current state of the economy, given this latest bit of news, hurts or helps McCain or Obama? Inquiring minds want to know your views.
Funny random thought:
We just got an endorsement from the only person in this hall who knows what it’s like to be President.
-Howard Dean, after President Clinton’s DNC speech, to Fox News’ Chris Wallace (paraphrased)
Umm…Did he forgot Jimmy Carer was in attendance, or was that an intentional insult?
I think both, on a subconscious level.
“The Republicans Said I Was Too Young and Too Experienced to Be Commander in Chief”
As I recall, he was impeached. Perhaps we had a point?
Also a lot of other stuff happened, well worth discussing in the coming months.
And now speculation that McCain’s pick is …. Sam Brownback. Not since Joe Biden was announced as Democrat candidate for VP has there been such electrifying news.
–Blogger of the year says
So there’s that. But I’m not sure it’s necessarily good news this year.
–Vodkapundit says word on the Denver street is McCain’s pick will be Virginia Congressman Eric Cantor. Much better than Brownback, if you ask me.
–Not exactly Convention news but …. news nonetheless: Right Truth notes another possible problematic associate of the Chosen One.
–7.62 mm Justice reminds us of the potential downside of a thin-skinned Prez.
More on this from Hillbilly White Trash. Seriously, if he is trying to get the FBI involved in squelching an unfavorable campaign ad, does anyone want to speculate what Obama might be capable of if he has the machinery of government at his disposal?
Oh the humanity!
Obama is too proud to have Bill sleeping in the Lincoln Bedroom. Instead he would rather say to the PUMA Democrats ‘Drop Dead’. To Hillary, ‘Hey, its 3AM, you get it?’ Real smooth Barak!
He needs to listen to his teleprompter writers. This was a no brainer when looked at through the lens of ‘real-politik’. Imagine what a disaster this babe-in-the-woods will be when he comes up against some of the real bad boys of the world.
Barack Obama puts the finishing touches on his acceptance speech tonight in rehearsal for tomorrow’s historic address from Mt. Olympus.
What amazes me is how long the whole PUMA movement has been ignored by the Obama sycophants in the MSM. Now at the convention there is a flurry of recent articles. Outside of FOX and the blogg-o-sphere this movement has been ignored. From hotair.com …
Hillary Clinton’s supporters will not go quietly, it seems. According to a Scripps-Howard report this morning, unnamed backers of Hillary have begun a “massive” e-mail campaign insisting that she won more votes and is the only electable candidate in 2008. Perhaps, in consideration of the polling free-fall Barack Obama has experienced this summer, they may have a point
The story it appears has finally broken out and is now being reported in the MSM. The folks at CBS finally write about but the articles concentrates on the Republican reaction instead of the root cause. Media Matters is in full spin mode calling it hype. The following sheds light on the matter …
The issue here is one of slander. The Obama camp leveled the racist charge at anyone who questioned his bonafides. Considering how small Obama’s bonafides are one can almost understand how sensitive his is in this matter. Both Clinton’s, Ferraro and others have been tarred. Wasn’t Bill Clinton the first Black president? Is this the campaign rhetoric and tactics of the post racial candidate?
