Mike Huckabee Defends Obama On Birther Claims, Religion, And Jeremiah Wright Issues

huckabee-obama

I’m no Mike Huckabee fan, but I will say I’m glad to see that he said this in an interview with a Christian magazine: According to a Pew survey last August, 29 percent of evangelical Christians believe Obama is a Muslim, while only 27 percent think he is a Christian. Who or what is at […]

Obama: Disloyal, Ruthless, Cold

obama-ruthless-cold

Wednesday’s column by Maureen Dowd, eviscerating President Obama for his shabby treatment of former White House Counsel Greg Craig and supporter Caroline Kennedy, is getting favorable responses from his supporters in the blogosphere. Only a year after he had helped Barack Obama get elected by eviscerating his close friend, Clinton White House colleague and Yale […]

White House Opaque Transparency

Yesterday afternoon, in a bit of faux transparency like you’ve never seen before, the administration released the names of everyone who has toured the White House from Obama’s inauguration through the end of July.  This, after various Freedom of Information Act requests to determine whether, say, William Ayers and Jeremiah Wright have stopped by. A […]

Van Jones Resigns and Whines

One of the curious controversies I’ve been half-following on Twitter but haven’t been motivated to write about is the case of Van Jones, a leader of the 9/11 “Truther” movement who has served since March as President Obama’s Special Advisor for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality, or […]

Obama’s Schoolchildren Speech

Obama Schoolchildren

President Obama is set to address the nation’s schoolchildren next week, presumably to propagandize them into his evil agenda of turning the country into Communist Russia (pronounced “roo-shuh”) and offing granny to save money on health care just as they do in his native Kenya. There are even instruction manuals to enlist the support of […]

A Tale of Two Murders

newspapers

DrewM. passes on Michelle Malkin‘s post and column noting that the murder of abortion doctor George Tiller by a white “Christian” got scads more media commentary and more intense presidential attention than did the murder of Private William Long and maiming and attempted murder of Private Quinton Ezeagwula by a black “Muslim.” It’s a fair […]

Timothy Geithner: Dead Secretary Walking

FINANCIAL/AIG

A few weeks ago on OTB Radio, Dave Schuler predicted that Timothy Geithner would be out as Treasury Secretary by the end of the year.  At the rate he’s going, he might not last to summer. It’s bad enough his every public appearance causes the Dow to plummet.  Now, he’s been openly contradicted by his […]

Rush Limbaugh Less Popular Than Jeremiah Wright

Max Blumenthal thinks Republicans should think twice about taking advice from Rush Limbaugh. An October 24, 2008, poll conducted by the Democratic research firm Greenberg-Quinlan-Rosner has Rush Limbaugh enjoying a public-approval rating of just 21 percent among likely voters, while 58 percent have “cold” feelings toward the right-wing radio-talk-show host. Limbaugh was the least popular […]

Obama Picks Warren, Angers Gays

Rick Warren and Barack Obama

President-Elect Barack Obama has made the most controversial move thus far in his transition, naming far right televangelist Rick Warren to deliver the invocation at his inauguration.  While this initially struck me as a brilliant move on his part, winning points with Evangelical Christians with little downside, the announcement has sparked outrage in the gay […]

Jeremiah Wright Unaired McCain Ad

us-politics

John McCain famously refused to make the Jeremiah Wright affair an issue in his campaign. ABC News has obtained a copy of an unaired ad, which they ran on yesterday’s Good Morning America: NARRATOR: Long before anyone knew who John McCain or Barack Obama were, one chose to honor his fellow soldiers by refusing to […]

McCain Ads That Didn’t Run

us-politics

Most of John McCain’s television spots, going back to the primaries, were simply dreadful. Now, Fred Davis III, the “advertising whiz” behind these atrocious ads, is whining to TIME’s Michael Scherer that McCain wouldn’t let him run some particularly clever ones. What if the McCain campaign had run ads using footage of Barack Obama dancing […]

McCain Campaign Postmortem

us-politics

Newsweek shares several tidbits from their “special election project,” which gave them inside information that they couldn’t publish until after the fact. Palin’s Spending Spree NEWSWEEK has also learned that Palin’s shopping spree at high-end department stores was more extensive than previously reported. While publicly supporting Palin, McCain’s top advisers privately fumed at what they […]

Rev. Wright’s October Surprise?

Barack Obama’s one-time pastor, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, has a new book coming out in October, along with a national tour to promote it.   The Spectator’s James Forsyth thinks this is “a huge problem for Obama.” It means that the whole controversy over Wright’s racialist sermons and his friendship with Obama is going to be […]
