Obama, Biden and Earmarks
Sen. Barack Obama sought more than $3.4 million in congressional earmarks for clients of the lobbyist son of his Democratic running mate, Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr. of Delaware, records show. Obama succeeded in getting $192,000 for one of the clients, St. Xavier University in suburban Chicago.
Obama's campaign has taken a hard stance against the world of lobbying in the nation's capital. [Except when it comes to him, his running mate and any other fellow Liberal. - Drake]. Obama said he limits his own efforts to get money for pet projects -- a process known as earmarking -- to those that benefit the public. He has posted his earmark requests on his presidential campaign Web site to encourage transparency.
Since Obama announced his selection of Biden on Saturday, attention has focused on Biden's lobbying connections as well as his son's lobbying activities. R. Hunter Biden is one of many relatives of members of Congress who work as lobbyists.
The younger Biden started his career as a lobbyist in 2001 and has registered to represent about 21 clients that have brought in $3.5 million to his Washington firm, according to lobbying disclosure forms.
Sen. Biden has collected more than $6.9 million in campaign contributions from lobbyists and lawyers since 1989, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
An analysis for The Washington Post by Taxpayers for Common Sense of Hunter Biden's firm's lobbying business found that its clients collected $2.7 million in earmarks in the last fiscal year.
One of those clients was St. Xavier University, a four-year, 5,600-student institution run by the Roman Catholic Sisters of Mercy in Orland Park, Ill. Steve Murphy, vice president for university advancement, said Hunter Biden approached him in 2005 offering to secure congressional earmarks.
Obama's spokesman also acknowledged lobbying for Mercy Hospital, another client of Hunter Biden.
In addition to his work for universities, Hunter Biden has done consulting work for MBNA, the largest employer in Delaware.
From 2001 to 2005, Hunter was paid an undisclosed amount by the credit card giant, which has since been purchased by Bank of America. It has been widely reported that he received $100,000 a year.
At the time, Sen. Biden led a successful, high-profile battle in the Senate for a bankruptcy bill that ultimately benefited credit card companies. The law makes it more difficult for people to file for personal bankruptcy protection under Chapter 7.
Over the past two decades, MBNA employees have given more than $200,000 to Biden's Senate campaigns, more than workers from any other company.
Wade said Hunter Biden was hired by MBNA after working as a Commerce Department lawyer on Internet privacy and online commerce issues. "Hunter consulted for five years as an expert on these very same issues at a time of enormous expansion in online banking," Wade said. "He was never a lobbyist for MBNA, and his work had absolutely nothing to do with the bankruptcy bill. Zero. Nothing."
Hunter Biden also lobbied for Napster, the music-sharing Web site that ran afoul of intellectual-property laws. Sen. Biden at the time was a senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which oversees laws governing intellectual-property rights.
"While Barack Obama decries Washington insiders and says that he detests lobbyists, Joe Biden is the model Washington insider with numerous connections to lobbyists and special interests," Republican National Committee spokesman Danny Diaz said.
That's a nice set of double standards you have there, Liberals. How do you manage to do it? It must take yeoman amounts of denial, I'll bet!

McCain Picks Palin
The Insane Liberal Clown Posse is fit to be tied with Senator John McCain's pick of Alaska's Governor Sarah Palin as his VP. The ILCP is foaming at the mouth - they are spitting fire, all you have to do is listen to them - like the rabid Haters that they are! Of course the ILCP is reacting this way. They know no other way to conduct themselves.
Here's what we can expect from The Insane Liberal Clown Posse: they are going to attack Governor Palin in ways that we have never seen in the past. They are going to attack her for being a woman - you watch - the party that claims to be pro-women's rights will viciously go after Palin in ways that will make you blanch.
Palin solidifies the Conservative Base that had many people, including me, not getting excited over McCain.
Heh - the Dems are trying to make hay over what they call Palin's lack of experience. Well, this same allegation is the entire and definitive selling point of Obama! Why do you think Obama picked Biden? Because he desperately needs gravitas! (Howling laughter!)
The Dems are nitpicking on Palin as a "small town mayor." Gee, is there something wrong or bad about having been a small town mayor? The Dems seem to think so, even though The Obamalith is desperately trying to curry favor with voters of small towns and win them over; you know, those folks who cling to their religion and their guns. So picking on Palin's past as a "small town mayor" will backfire on the Dems as a criticism of her. This won't stop the stupid Dems from attacking her on this issue.
Palin has a 2008 80% approval rating. She had a 90% approval rating in 2007.
Obama could have picked Hillary Clinton as his running mate. He could have picked Nanny Pelosi or Barbara Boxer or Dianne Whinestein or Clair McCaskill. It would have been risky, but he could have picked Madeleine Albright, Kathleen Blanco or Cynthia McKinney. All of these women have a solid resume in politics; they would have represented "change". There were plenty of female politicians for Obama to pick as his running mate, but no, he went with a safe bet. An old, 40-year D.C. entrenched Insider with the worst hair plugs in the history of hair transplant technology.
Palin has more experience than the 143-days-actual-in-the-Senate Obama. Palin has more presidential gravitas than does Obama!
Palin has more Executive Branch experience from being a mayor and a governor than does Obama, Biden and even McCain!
This is a good pick. A very intelligent pick. I'm not yet ready to change my mind on sitting this election out...but I'm at least rethinking my decision.
Obama's Nuremberg Rally At Invesco Field
What's that, you say? You scoff at my comparison of Invesco Field and the Nuremberg Rallies? Well, you are mistaken. Invesco Field was exactly the same as the Nuremberg Rallies. The images are strikingly similar, especially these two:
The only thing missing was a goose-step from Obama's gait and a little mustache under his nose.
Did you notice the majority of all Da Black Folk at Obama's Nuremberg Rally were seated in the nose-bleed section? See, Obama takes the Black Vote for granted as does every other Democrat politician. The plantation of Blacks is owned by the Slave Master Democrats - this is exactly how they behave. Be quiet, all you Black Folks - Obama doesn't need you to win, he needs the Whitey vote who occupied the main floor - and of whom the reactions of all the camera shots captured - in order to win.
I noticed two more old, white men flapping their jaws Thursday night; Democrat Dick "Our soldiers are Nazis and Pol Pot" Durbin and the Man Who Would Never Be President, the Global Alarmist Albert Gore, Junior. And some old white lady with three chins spoke before they did. She's just an old white lady.
Where's the diversity in the Democrat Party? Heh - there isn't any. Ah yes, it was a Nuremberg Rally of The Lily White Party.
Finally, Chimpy McObama Poodle took the stage.
I noticed Chimpy made sure he was wearing his U.S. Flag lapel pin. He's such a patriot, isn't he?
Oooooooh, there was a United State Flag behind Chimpy. Wow, I'm amazed it survived and wasn't burned prior to him taking the stage.
I can't take my eyes of his ears. They are, indeed, the most enormous ears on any human being I've ever seen. If he flaps them, can he fly? I bet he can hide a kilo of coke in one ear canal and a couple of crack pipes in the other.
No doubt Thursday night's Hollywood extravaganza of The Obamalith will turn off a large bloc of voters, and why shouldn't it? At best, he's a gravitas-lacking celebrity who lacks political depth and experience. The average middle class voter is appalled at the carbon footprint consumption involved in Thursday night's Obama masturbatory event to himself.
Obama needs the pizazz and flash. It's all he has. He has no experience, no gravitas, no history. He has a blank resume. He has to have pomp and circumstances and an exaggerated flowery book cover because the inside pages are blank. All show, all talk, all pomp and circumstances.
How is it he never closed any primary with close to 50% of the vote? He can't close the deal. It's that simple.
There were fireworks too. How can a global warming Alarmist permit fireworks, which are one of the most egregious pollutants around?
If Obama is doing so well - as his Cult Followers would like everyone to believe - why isn't he ahead of McCain by 10 points? If Obama is doing so well, why did he receive such a minimal and ephemeral bounce from the convention?
I counted how many times in his speech that Obama used the word "I" (and its variations, "I've" or "I'm) and totaled up 81 times. 81 times! (Actually it was "word match" that did the counting).
It's all about him. That's all it is. Obama has given new meaning to the words arrogance and hubris.
Note: I believe it was Peggy Noonan, writing in the Wall Street Journal, who was the first to compare the striking similarities between Obama's speech from Invesco Field to that of the Nuremberg Rallies. I make no claim that I was the one who thought of this first.
Carter Says McCain "milking his POW" Status
Worst.President.Ever. Jimmy "Obama Is a Black Boy" Carter said Senator John McCain is "milking his POW" status.
This is hysterical coming from a man who was attacked by - and couldn't defend himself against - a rabbit!
Let me understand this correctly: In 2004, Commiecrat presidential candidate John Kerry never allowed a moment to pass by where he didn't mention his "serving in Vietnam."
And Carter is criticizing McCain? I'm almost thinking Carter is trying to sabotage Obama's campaign with his statements. Maybe Carter is doing this for Bubba and Hillary? Could be!
Oh, this is rich. Sweet, chocolaty, nougaty, creamy, caramel, whipped cream on top rich!

Was That Bernie Schwartz Seated Behind
The Clintons At The Dem Convention?
We all remember Schwartz, right? He's the former Chairman and CEO of Loral Space and Communications.
In exchange for his huge campaign contributions to Bubba, Schwartz received permission to sell missile technology to China during the Clinton Administration.
Oh yeah, I'm damn sure it was him seated behind the Clintons on Wednesday night. Am I the only one who noticed this? If you did, let me know.
I can't locate a photo or image of the Clintons from Wednesday night at the convention that shows and includes the person seated behind them. If you spot one, let me know. Thanks.

Stanley Kurtz And ABC Targets
Of The Obama Hit Squad
An ABC reporter was arrested in Denver for taking video footage from a public sidewalk. ABC:
Police in Denver arrested an ABC News producer today as he and a camera crew were attempting to take pictures on a public sidewalk of Democratic senators and VIP donors leaving a private meeting at the Brown Palace Hotel.
Police on the scene refused to tell ABC lawyers the charges against the producer, Asa Eslocker, [Why, it sounds like his Civil Liberties are being violated! This should have The Liberals puking blood! Where are they? Why are they so silent? Could it be because they've pleged their total allegiance to Obama? - Drake] who works with the ABC News investigative unit.
A cigar-smoking Denver police sergeant, accompanied by a team of five other officers, first put his hands on Eslocker's neck, then twisted the producer's arm behind him to put on handcuffs.
A police official later told lawyers for ABC News that Eslocker is being charged with trespass, interference, and failure to follow a lawful order. He also said the arrest followed a signed complaint from the Brown Palace Hotel.
What is it the reporter was trying to cover?
From The Scoop:
An ABC News producer was arrested outside the Brown Palace Hotel as he attempted to chronicle attendees at a private breakfast held by a Democratic Party campaign committee. ABC said in a statement that Asa Eslocker and a camera crew were "attempting to take pictures on a public sidewalk of Democratic senators and VIP donors leaving a private meeting."
"We're getting under their skin, I think," said Brian Ross, ABC News correspondent whose "Money Trail" reports are running every night this week and next from both nominating conventions.
ABC isn't the only one getting the heave-ho from the jackboot licking Obama Cultists.
Stanley Kurtz, a columnist for National Review is a target of the Obama Hit Squad as well. Associated Content:
The Barack Obama Campaign seriously does not like discussion or reporting on the relationship between their candidate and the unrepentant terrorist, William Ayers. Recently National Review columnist Stanley Kurtz found out just how the Obama people don't like it.
Stanley Kurtz was on a local radio talk show in Chicago hosted by Milt Rosenberg to discuss his research of the archives of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge where Barack Obama and William Ayers both worked. Upon hearing of the interview, the Barack Obama campaign send a mass email to its supporters urging them to flood the radio station's phone lines and send emails denouncing Stanley Kurtz and his investigation.
There was clearly a campaign to jam the phone lines of the radio station will calls that not just disagreed with Stanley Kurtz, but demanded that he be taken off the air and his investigation stopped. [So the Obama Cultists are practicing the same "silencing of their critics" as they falsely allege the Bush Administration of doing, are they? - Drake]
National Review's Guy Benson offered a flavor of some of the calls:
"One female caller, when pressed about what precisely she objected to, simply replied, "We just want it to stop!" Another angry caller was asked what "lies" Kurtz had told in any of his reporting on Barack Obama. The thoughtful response? "Everything he said is dishonest." The same caller later refused to get into "specifics." Another gentleman called Kurtz "the most un-American person" he'd ever heard. Several of the callers did not even know Stanley's name, most had obviously never read a sentence of his meticulous research, and more than simply read verbatim from the Obama talking points."
The Obama Campaign had been requested to send a representative to appear on the show to offer a response to Stanley Kurtz. Despite the fact that Obama Campaign headquarters was just a few blocks away from the radio station, the campaign demurred.
The Endless Secrecy Around Barack Obama
Just to review, the public cannot get access to paperwork related grants distributed by then-state-legislator Obama (records from 1997 to 2000 aren't available); his state legislative office records (which he says may have been thrown out); he refuses to release a specific list of law clients, instead giving a list of all of his firm's clients, numbering several hundred each year; he won't release his application to the state bar (where critics wonder if he lied in responding to questions about parking tickets and past drug use); he’s never released any legal or billing records to verify that he only did a few hours of work for a nonprofit tied to convicted donor Rezko; and he's never released any medical records, just a one-page letter from his doctor.
Now the University of Illinois at Chicago is denying Stanley Kurtz access to documents relating to the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, a small foundation, founded and inspired by Bill Ayers, for which Obama served as board chairman.
What the hell? Really, what possible reason is there to seal documents like this, beyond saving Obama some embarrassment? And is any fool out there still claiming that they're voting for Obama because the Bush Administration has been too secretive?
The American Public still has no proof that Obama is a United States citizen. From ObamaCrimes.com:
To be eligible to serve as U.S. president, a person must be born in this country. According to Obama's birth certificate, which his campaign posted on its Internet site in June to quell rumors that he is foreign born, the Illinois senator was born in Hawaii on Aug. 6, 1961.
On Thursday, Philip Berg filed a temporary restraining order in federal court to bar Obama from running for president, claiming the Democratic candidate was actually born in Africa.
"We really don't believe he was born in Hawaii," Berg said. "We think he was born in Kenya."
"If he was born in Hawaii, and he was adopted in Indonesia by Lolo Soetoro, (Obama) would lose his citizenship," Berg said.
A 2007 Associated Press photograph, suppressed until now, shows the school register of the child who is today known as Barack Hussein Obama but was officially listed then as Barry Soetoro, whose citizenship was listed as "Indonesian" and whose religion was listed as "Islam." The visual evidence starkly contradicts the Obama campaign's claim that he was not a Muslim and confirms that he is a national of at least one other country.
In addition, it raises the highly problematic issue of what is Obama's official name. If it turns out to (be) Barry Soetoro, and no official change of name was ever made, Obama may face an array of charges of deception and misprision that may throw into doubt, at the very least, his fitness to run.

Dem Convention: The Lily White Old Men Party
Bill Clinton spoke Wednesday night. He's an old white guy.
John Kerry spoke Wednesday night. He's an old white guy.
Joe Biden spoke Wednesday night. He's an old white guy.
Thursday night includes speaker Albert Gore, Junior, another old white guy.
And then - finally, some black guy - full of hubris, arrogance and lacking all gravitas - running for president gets to hold the microphone. I think his name is Jeebus. Nanny Pelosi says he is a gift to us from God.
Yep, those Dems are quite the diverse party, aren't they?
Labels: Democrat Convention
Never Always Mention Differences
A perfect example of this is Liberal Radio Talker Skanky Miller. On her Thursday program, at around 35 minutes into the second hour, she told listeners that she watched Joe Biden's convention speech in a bar with, "a black guy from Virginia, a Hispanic woman and a white friend." See, should couldn't just say she watched the speech in a bar with others. She had to identify their color and ethnicity.
Democrats do this all the time. They think pointing out the skin color and ethnicity of who they surround themselves proves how colorblind they are. But what it really demonstrates is that they see only color, gender, ethnicity and differences. What it really demonstrates is how Democrats feel the need to label anyone who isn't white.
We are supposed to marvel that a skanky white woman knows people who are black, Hispanic and this or that. We are supposed to marvel that an anorexic 50-something failed actress with a low-rated Liberal Radio program is tolerant, diverse and - in order to show just how diverse she is - she feels the need to mention the skin color, ethnicity or heritage of whom she associates. And every other Democrat behaves in the same manner as Skanky Miller.
Democrats can't help but always mention that Obama is black. Really? Obama is black? No way. Black you say? Huh, I hadn't noticed that. I'm so glad that this was pointed out otherwise I wouldn't have noticed. Black you say, he's black? Well, I certainly knew he was different. I didn't know he is black.
This is the problem with Democrats. For all their supposed colorblindness, tolerance and diversity, they can only view other people through their narrow prism of color, gender and ethnicity.
Why should it matter that Obama is black? If his political agenda is one that I agree with, then I'll vote for him. If I agree with his vision as a candidate, then I'll vote for him. It wouldn't matter if he's black, white, green, purple, male, female, Hispanic, Eskimo, Jew, Gentile or Other. But the Dems can't behave in this manner. They can only view - and then articulate - the differences in anyone who isn't white.
Dems tell us that we are all the same - and they're right, we are. But you'd never know this by their words and actions. They can't help themselves from pointing out, labeling and bringing attention to differences in skin color, gender and ethnicity.
The Democrats continued insistence in calling attention to color, gender and ethnicity is analogous to someone saying, "I don't beat my wife," or "I don't kick my dog." Why so defensive? You don't hear this claptrap and labeling of other people's skin color or ethnic heritage from Republicans, Conservatives and Libertarians. You don't hear them saying things such as, "my black friend," "my gay friend, "my Hispanic friend."
Lawn Jockeys For Obama!
The Dems can't help but call attention to differences. They think doing this is proof of their diversity, of their colorblindness, but it's not. All it does is show how the Dems are stuck in a era of inequality and differences, and how they must point out and call attention to these differences. People who are genuinely tolerant and colorblind don't mention these things, they view all people as equal. It's no different than telling your boss that you're a hard worker. Your boss knows if you're a hard worker or not - and chances are if you're saying that you're a hard worker, you're really not a hard worker at all.
Sadly, racism - to some degree or another - will always exist in every geographical place on the earth. While Democrats say they are colorblind, their actions and words betray them every time. They can't help themselves in identifying the differences of others whether it's skin color, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, disability, age or any other visual item that isn't the Lily White Democrat Standard.
As I previously wrote, the Democrat Party is the Lily White Party. All we've seen from the Democrat Convention is one old White Man or Woman after another. Where's the diversity? It's not there, it doesn't exist; no matter how much the Dems feign otherwise.
Recession, What Recession? 2Q Grows 3.3%
The U.S. economy saw the second quarter of 2008 grow by 3.3%, hardly - HARDLY - a recession.
This won't stop the Dems from Playing The Recession Card, though. Along with The Fear and The Race Card, it's the only cards in their deck that the they can play.
Bernie Mac And Isaac Hayes, Rest In Peace
The star was best known in the UK for film roles in Ocean's Eleven, Charlie's Angels and Transformers.
But in the US, he achieved critical and popular acclaim for the long-running sitcom The Bernie Mac Show, which earned him two Emmy award nominations.
He was admitted to hospital in Chicago last week and died early on Saturday morning due to complications arising from pneumonia, his publicist said.
And from NJ.com:
At the time, [Mac] was working as a sales rep for Wonder Bread, but the more popular he became on the club circuit, the less he wanted to push bread to pay the bills.
On the day before Thanksgiving, his thoughts were consumed by the three standing ovations he'd received the night before. He dumped his entire load of bread at only five stores - "They had bread in the frozen food department, that's how much bread I gave them all" - called his boss and quit.
And then, the day after Mac died, the multi-talented Isaac Hayes died. BBC:
Police were called after his wife found him unconscious next to a moving treadmill. He was taken to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Hayes, a flamboyant, deep-voiced performer, won an Oscar for the 1971 hit Theme From Shaft.
He was perhaps better known to a younger audience as the voice of Chef from the hit cartoon show, South Park.
Rest In Peace.
The Lily White Democrat Convention
Other than Pickles The Dangerous Washerwoman Obama, where be all 'da Black Folk speaking at the Lily White Democrat Convention? There aren't any.
I admit I've only watched the closing few minutes of Pickle's speech on Monday night and watched most of Hillary Clinton's Tuesday night speech. But other than The Dangerous Washerwoman and her dragging out on stage her two Little Chocolate Chips, there's been only White Folk on stage making speeches.
Where's Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton? Both are supposed to be leaders within the Democrat Party. The Affirmative Action Candidate decided long ago to throw them under the bus and distance himself from them because he perceives them to be polarizing figures who cannot help his candidacy.
Where's Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama's father-figure? He's under the bus with Jesse and Al, chewing on the rubber tires.
Where's Democrat Congressman William Jefferson? Sure, he faced criticism for having $900K in his refrigerator freezer, but in the minds of Democrats his offense is a "so what" moment that shouldn't disqualify him from a major role at the convention. Why isn't he a keynote speaker?
Charles Barkley supports Obama, why wasn't he given a chance to speak? He could have brought a lot of excitement to the convention.
Where's Charlie Rangel? Harold Ford? Jocelyn Elders? Are they "too black" for Obama? Could be. It can't be that Elders represents the "old Democrats" because Obama proved his campaign isn't about newness when he picked 40-year D.C. Insider Joe Biden as his running mate.
Where's Colin Powell? He's supporting The Affirmative Action Candidate. Oh, I bet his invitation to speak at the convention was lost in the mail. Remember how Democrats hated Powell? Now they're pretending to love and embrace him because he's voting for The Illinois Muslim. But four years ago these same Obama Cultists wanted him jailed for treason. Nothing quite says hypocrite like being a member of the Democrat Party, does it?
Yes, I'm aware that Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick (they guy Obama plagiarized) had a few minutes on stage. But he's an unknown except to anyone who is a political junkie. Ask ten people on the street if they know who he is and ten people will tell you they've never heard of him. Ask those same ten people if they know of Jackson, Sharpton, Barkley or Wright and I'm guessing at least half of them will answer in the affirmative.
Obama touts his candidacy as being new, one of change; yet all we've seen are the same, staid, stale White Folks speaking at the convention: Fat Ted Tumor Head Kennedy, Nanny Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, Dennis Kookcinich and Mark Warner - all pasty Lily White Democrats. And let's not forget horse-faced Chelsea Clinton either.
Wednesday night had speeches from two more old-guard, dull, Lily White Male Democrats: Bill Clinton and Joe Biden.
So much for change, so much for hope, so much for People of Color.
The Democrat Party is the Lily White Party. You needn't believe what I write. Believe your own eyes. All you have to do is watch the Lily White Convention.
Hillary Clinton Tuesday Night Live!
Hillary Clinton's speech Tuesday night didn't convince many of her supporters into backing The Affirmative Action Candidate.
She was typically robotic. Her speech was uninspirational. She said what she had to say, but she wasn't believable. Why would anyone - especially her supporters - believe a word that she said?
In a carefully crafted and executed delivery, Hillary MrsSatan Clinton spoke far more about her, her candidacy, her work in the Senate and her job as First Lady than she spoke about The Obamalith.
Did you notice how the only time Pickles Obama The Dangerous Washerwoman forced one of her toothy-chipmunk-stuffed-cheek smiles during Hillary's speech was when she knew she was on-camera? Pickles and Hillary can't stand each other and it shows. Oh, how it shows.
It was Hillary's acceptance speech. Only she's not the candidate...yet.
She mentioned, "partisan gridlock." Heh - who's responsible for that? The Democrats under the leadership of Nanny Pelosi and Harry ReidTard, that's who.
She talked a lot about lowering taxes on the middle class. But it was her husband who signed into law the biggest tax increase on the middle class in American political history.
So while Hillary, Pickles and all the other Commiecrats deliver their speeches about lowering taxes on the Middle Class, we know they are lying to the American public. Do you own research by going to the official website of The Affirmative Action candidate and you will see that his spending plans cannot be financed by only taxing and soaking the wealthy; no, he will implement tax increases on every wage-earner.
Bill Clinton learned this the hard way when he socked it to the rich by raising taxes on the wealthy. Remember the tax increase for yacht-buyers? What happened? Manufacturers of yachts saw a decrease in demand for their product and thus began laying off employees. Clinton's "tax the rich" policy was quickly undone.
Ladies, those of you who supported Hillary had the rug pulled out from under you by a novice; an arugula and goat cheese-eating, 143 actual days on-the-job-in-the-Senate experience Elitist whose blue-collar bowling score is a 37.
Hillary supporters had Obama forced onto them; almost like they were raped.
After the Hillary speech a local television news broadcast interviewed a women at the Minnesota State Fair. She was asked by the interviewer if she would now vote for Obama instead of John McCain. She answered, "Why would I listen to Hillary now?" Exactly.
What I'm hearing today, from the LefTard Obamaniacs regarding Hillary Clinton's Tuesday night speech, is, "if that was how Hillary would have campaigned during the primary I would have voted for her instead of Obama." No they wouldn't. No. They. Wouldn't.
There was no difference between Hillary in the primary from that of the Hillary on Tuesday night. The difference is this and only this; Hillary voted for the War in Iraq and Obama is against the war. Of course, this is an easy stance for him to take because he wasn't in the U.S. Senate when the vote for the Iraq War was cast. It's easy for him to glom onto an issue he doesn't have to take any responsibility for and for which he cannot be held accountable.
Hillary practically choked every time she had to utter the words Barack Obama. At any moment I expected her to hurl up a Stimpy-style furball just prior to speaking his name.
She talked about the middle class being able to, "Have a little (money) left over each month." That's right, just a little. Just enough to squeak by. And if you have more than just "a little", by god the Democrats will find a way to take it from you. They know how to spend it better than you do.
This is message of Democrats; have "a little money leftover"; not a lot - don't be successful - don't strive for improving your financial situation - don't even think about being rich because being rich is bad. Unless you're a Democrat, unless you're
Hillary's speech was more about why she was the better candidate. This message was absorbed by her supporters. If this isn't true, then please tell me why so many Hillary supporters - especially women - that I've seen interviewed on television or that I've heard on radio are still saying they will support and vote for John McCain?
John Edwards: "It's Not My Baby!"
Nope. It's not his baby. Not at all. That's what he says. He says he was just visiting her, and why shouldn't we believe him? We all know that everyone visits their mistress at a hotel at 2:40AM to see a baby that they didn't father. This happens all the time.

When Does Gore Announce His Candidacy?
I'm so curious as to what day Albert Gore, Junior will toss his hat into the election. When is it? What day will it be?
Remember, there were tons of
So - hey - LeftTards - when does the Carbon Footprinting ManBearPig announce his candidacy?
(Fingers tapping on the table)...I'm waiting...why don't you tell me on what day he tosses his hat into the ring? Let me know, will you?
The Election Boils Down To FOPIM
It's pronounced just as it is spelled: "FO-PIM". Because this is what the election will boil down to.
These five state will determine who is elected as the next president of the United States.
Whichever candidate wins three or more of these states will be the one elected to the White House.
Floria, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana and Michigan. FOPIM.
It is likely that John McCain will win Florida given for whom Florida has voted in the past.
McCain can win Michigan - a Blue state in years 2000 and 2004 - especially if he chooses Mitt Romney - whom Michigan loves - as his VP.
This leaves OPI; Ohio, Pennsylvania and Indiana.
Both Ohio and Indiana voted for George W. Bush in both year 2000 and 2004 elections. Despite crying and whining from The Left about DieBold machines being rigged in Ohio, they have never proven it. DieBold rigging is nothing but an unproven conspiracy theory from The Left because this is all they can grasp onto.
Both Ohio and Indiana are, to some extent, up for grabs this year but they should - in all practical purposes - remain Red States.
If McCain manages to pull off getting the electoral votes of Wisconsin or Minnesota - both of which are up for grabs - along with two or more FOPIMs, by the time the Rocky Mountain and Pacific Time Zone states vote, it will already be over for The Affirmative Action Candidate who will be rendered back to on-the-job training as a U.S. Senator.
This election is John McCain's to lose.
And as anyone familiar with what I've written here in the past, I'm no fan of McCain, I'm not supportive of his candidacy and I will be sitting this election out. I may reconsider if - and it's a big IF - he picks Romney as his running mate. But even if he doesn't, McCain still has FOPIM on his side. Pennsylvania can stay Blue and McCain can still win.
FOPIM. This what the election boils down to.
Assassination Attempt Of Obama
Geez, I sure hope that the alleged persons involved in this alleged attempt didn't have their Civil Liberties and Civil Rights violated.
I sure hope that this alleged plot wasn't uncovered through any type of illegal surveillance.
I sure hope that this alleged plot wasn't uncovered through any type of illegal wiretapping.
I sure hope that this alleged plot wasn't uncovered through any means of illegal monitoring, spying or eavesdropping.
I sure hope that this alleged plot wasn't uncovered through any illegal search or seizure.
I sure hope that the law enforcement individuals who discovered this alleged plot had an approved and signed warrant from a judge prior to the actions that they took.
I sure hope that the alleged persons involved in this alleged attempt weren't profiled. That would be so, so, so wrong.
I hope that the alleged persons involved in this alleged plot had their rights read to them.
I hope that the persons involved in this alleged plot were told that if they cannot afford an attorney that one will be appointed for them.
Yes, I sure hope that the alleged persons involved in this alleged assassination attempt didn't have any of their Constitutional Rights violated.
Doing any of the above would be wrong and illegal. It would be emblematic of a Fascist-like Police state.
We know this because the Democrats have spent eight years telling us this.

Joe Biden Cries
What's the matter Joe, do you have sand in your vagina?
Denver: Night One Recap
I read where a prayer was recited to kick-off the ceremony. Was a fetus aborted on stage as well?
I understand there was a huge tribute, complete with a video homage, to Democrat Senator Fat Ted Tumor Head Kennedy. Can anyone inform me if the tribute mentioned him being a murderer and included footage and references to Chappaquiddick and how he made no effort in rescuing Mary Jo Kopechne?
Did the tribute mention his hardcore alcoholism, his several homes (after all, if making a big deal out of the number of John and Cindy McCain's homes is an issue, the many homes of the Kennedy's is fair game), his divorce and his numerous extramarital affairs?
Did the video tribute mention his father Joe Kennedy Sr's. anti-Semitism, his World War II profiteering from being in cahoots with Nazis and how Joe idolized Adolf Hitler and so desperately wanted to meet him in person?
Did the video pay tribute to Joe's bootlegging?
Did the video mention Joe's sexual affair - oh, excuse me, his alleged sexual affair - with his own daughter, Rose? Did the tribute mention how Rose was subjected to a forced lobotomy?
I would imagine all those great things that Fat Ted Tumor Head and the rest of the disgusting, illegal and immoral acts this family has done were ignored.
And there was Michelle Obama, Best Leading Actress In A Convention Drama, reciting a speech that was written for her.
I saw the tail end of Michelle The Dangerous Washerwoman's speech. Did I hear her say, "God Bless America"? Why would she say that when she hates America and, until now, has never been proud of her country?
Is there anything more nauseating and ingratiating than the Obama children Sasha and Malia? Did you see the two Little Chocolate Chips dragged out in front of the crowd after The Dangerous Washerwoman's speech?
Then, the Illinois Muslim appeared on a television screen and the Two Chocolate Chips - obviously coached beforehand - attempted to converse with Bele, which proved only that they didn't learn their scripted lines and kept interrupting Big Daddy. Hey, if the children of John Roberts and the Bush daughters can be held up to ridicule by The Lefties, then I am entitled to rip on the Two Chocolate Chip girls.
"Daddy what city are you in," asked the littlest Chocolate Chip.
"Kansas City," replied The Affirmative Action Candidate.
Uh-huh, like the Littlest Chocolate Chip knows the difference between Kansas City, Kansas and Kansas City, Missouri. Or Regina, Saskatchewan, for that matter.
That wasn't the end of the rehearsed and poorly executed "cuteness" from the Littlest Chocolate Chip.
She had to ask something like with whom Big Daddy was staying. He replied, "the Girardeaus", to which the LCC replied, "hi Giradeaus." What a pathetic attempt to play the "Oh, Aren't Those Chocolate Chip Girls Precocious" Card.
Like I said, I saw only the last few minutes. This is all it took to recognize the convention as the great farce that it is.
All that veneer, phoniness and smarminess contained in one place. Where's an airplane piloted by Islamic Radicals and a terrorist attack when you really need one?

Joe Biden, The Death Knell For Obama
Stick a great big fork in the candidacy of Osama Hussein Obama, Junior, the inexperienced, gravitas-lacking, possibly Kenyan-born Muslim, birth-certificate hiding, Affirmative Action Candidate. It's done. The final nail is set in the coffin of Obama's quest for the White House.
Obama picked the walking-talking-gaffe-machine Joe "Chi-Chi-Chi-Chiden" Biden as his VP. You don't think this is the death knell for The Meccachurian candidate? Say it with me..."Vice President Biden."
Biden's own words about Obama: "He's not ready to be president."
Biden's own words: "I would be honored to run [with] John McCain."
JoeBama And Hillary Clinton
Hey - all you Hillary Clinton supporters - how are you feeling knowing that Obama didn't even consider her as a running mate? He didn't even consider her. Hillary won the big states during the primary, Obama didn't. Consider the following six critical items that I read at another site (I didn't bookmark the site and can't recall where I read this so I am sorry not being able to give credit to the writer):
1-Obama outspent Sen. Hillary Clinton by a ratio of 4:1 from March-June 2008.
2-Clinton garnered over 600,000 more votes than Obama during that period.
3-Clinton won more votes in both Texas and Nevada, yet Obama was given more delegates.
4-During the March-June period, the so-called Democratic leadership continued to call for Clinton to drop out of the race, for the sake of "party unity." Clinton still got more votes.
5-Clinton earned more votes than any other candidate seeking nomination for the presidency in American history.
6-Despite the overwhelming support for Clinton, party "leaders" selected Obama.
Clearly, it is Obama who was selected - not elected - as the Democrat candidate. Being "selected, not elected" was a huge issue for the Dems in Election 2000, but now...not so much. This time around the Dems like "selection".
The choice of Biden should rankle and upset supporters of Hillary Clinton because the Liberal Owned Media is telling us that she wasn't even considered by Team Obama as a potential running mate.
Obama The Weak Candidate; Biden Lends Gravitas
How can any Obama Cultist be happy with the pick of Biden when he voted FOR the Iraq War? Obama Cultists' have thoroughly convinced themselves that anyone who voted for the war - including Hillary - are the anti-candidate, but somehow they manage to feign forced joy over the selection of Biden. This is another in a long line of examples of the always-expanding hypocrisy embraced by Obama Cultists. They didn't want Hillary as the president or as the vice-president because she voted for the war. Biden voted the same as Hillary, but Biden received a Free Pass from the rabid Obama Cultists. Oh, this is rich!
The only reason Cultists support Obama is because of his anti-Iraq War stance, yet this is an issue on which he has spun a 180. Obama promised an immediate withdraw from Iraq and this got him the nomination. Then Obama flip-flopped and, in part due to the success of the surge, now says that U.S. Troops are likely to be in Iraq longer than his original promise of Cut and Run.
After the disastrous presidential campaign of anti-war Dennis Kookcinich fizzled, the Pacifist Crowd was desperate for an anti-war candidate. They turned to Obama because they felt they could not trust Hillary Clinton. Yet, for all the posing and posturing of Obama and his anti-war rhetoric - and then his flip-flopping on his immediate cut and run - his Cultists once again find themselves steeped in denial and hypocrisy on the issue. Flip-flop-flip.
While the Obama Cultists claim they don't want a D.C. Insider - hence their reason for supporting the inexperienced and gravitas-lacking Osama Hussein Obama, Junior - most of them are wetting their panties and soiling themselves with glee over the choice of Biden, an almost 40-year D.C. Insider.
Except for a one-year stint with a law firm, Biden has never held a private sector job. He is the ultimate career politician, something which Obama formerly claimed his campaign is not about. Obama has again reversed himself, committing another flip-flop, and selects as his VP the definitive career politician.
Biden is widely known for three things; being a D.C. Insider, having the worst hair plugs in the entire history of hair transplant technology and being a walking talking gaffe machine.
Certainly any Republican or Conservative would have been labeled as a Racist and a Bigot had they described Obama (or any black person) as an "African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy." As compared to what, an "inarticulate, dimwitted, dirty, ugly black guy"? It has to be only a matter of time before Biden utters one of his usual verbal slips and refers to Obama as Macaca.
And why did Biden feel the need to point out that Obama is an "African-American"? Oh, that's right, Lefties can't help themselves from pointing out when someone isn't white. They think that by doing this it shows their color-blindness, but what it really demonstrates is that Lefties view everything through the prism of skin color.
The Obama Camp and his Cultists are attempting to paint Biden as a "regular Joe", a lunch pail type of guy. This is only slightly accurate. According to a recent column by David Brooks of the New York Times, Biden's "father was rich when he was young - playing polo, cavorting on yachts [driving] luxury cars. But through a series of bad personal and business decisions, he was broke by the time Joe Jr. came along."
If there's one thing Joe Jr. understands, it is spending taxpayer's money until the taxpayer is as broke and as destitute as his father.
Considering The Left is hyperventilating and exaggerating economic woes, it seems the last thing the county needs is a VP who has firsthand knowledge of bad financial and business decisions. On the other hand, this may be nothing more than an example of idiotic Liberal ideology that permits them to believe that a country can spend itself into prosperity.
Obama...the New guy with New vision? Nope. Obama is the typical Liberal politician who secretly knows his candidacy is weak and that he is inexperienced, thus he picks an almost 40-year long entrenched-inside-the Beltway Senator as his running mate; a shining example of Obama's hidden insecurity.
Biden: Ill-Tempered, Big Oil, Sovereign Countries, FISA, Paying Protection Money to Terrorists
Democrats enjoy making an issue out of John McCain's temperament. Joe Biden is hardly a role model of level-headedness. When a Democrat gets "angry", he or she is defended by their base as being "passionate." When a Republican is "passionate", the Dems label it as "anger." Ah, such a dichotomy within the Insane Liberal Clown Posse - how do they do it?
Biden is an angry man, and why shouldn't he be since he's a perennial loser when it comes to running as a presidential candidate? How can he not be angry after being rejected time and time again as his party's presidential candidate?
Nothing illustrates Biden's anger, insecurity and inferiority complex more than his 1987 presidential campaign in Claremont, New Hampshire telling a supporter that, "I have a much higher IQ than you do." There's nothing quite like telling a supporter that they're not as smart as you. There's nothing quite like the haughtiness, arrogance, smugness and condescension emanating from Liberals like Biden.
Biden, as a presidential candidate, is one of many Democrats who received campaign contributions from wealthy Texas oil man Oscar S. Wyatt Jr. Wyatt, who was indicted in 2005 for paying millions of kickbacks to Saddam Hussein. It's amazing how Democrats bury their heads in denial when it comes to their own politicians receiving money from Big Oil.
Biden received campaign contributions from Big Oil's John Catsimatidis.
Regarding the Military, Biden - who has no Military experience - had the audacity to admonish General David Petraeus: "I think [Petraeus is] dead, flat wrong, " - Joe Biden, September 9, 2007. I guess Obama wants a running mate who is as steeped in denial and removed from facts as he is since neither of them expected or wanted the surge to be successful.
Biden is also at odds with Obama with regard to Pakistan, a sovereign country, which Obama said he is willing to invade:
Obama, the inexperienced U.S. Democrat Senator from Illinois is coming under heavy fire - mostly from his own party - for his poorly thought-out strategy of invading Pakistan.
Democrat and presidential (un)hopeful Joe Biden said you don't "invade a sovereign country."
Biden is at odds with Obama on FISA. Obama voted for the most recent FISA bill, one no different than was criticized by Democrats when Republicans voted for it because they said it allowed "the illegal wiretapping and spying on Americans."
It was only a year ago that Biden voted against the same type of FISA bill that Obama now supports.
Biden, as a presidential candidate in 2007 said that signing on to NAFTA was a bad idea and that he would work to undo it. That's funny, because he supported it and voted for its passage during the Clinton Administration.
Biden, in 2007, said that South Carolina shouldn't be flying the Confederate Flag from statehouse grounds. So much for states' rights under Dems like Biden, who want the Federal Government to be the Uber Nanny of every facet of our lives, controlling what states can and cannot do, controlling what states can or cannot display.
Growing and expanding the Federal Government under Democrats is good; doing the same under Republicans is bad. As always, just when I thought Liberals couldn't reach any higher degree of hypocrisy they once again set the bar even higher.
Biden's answer to September 11 was to give a no-strings-attached $200 million dollars to Iran to show them that we're not a country of bad people. That's an odd solution proffered by someone who claims to have such a high IQ because Iranians aren't Arabs, they are Persians. One would think that someone with such a high IQ would know the difference between Arabs and Persians - or recognizing that Iran didn't attack us on September 11 - but not Joe Biden. He's always happy to give away American's hard-earned money.
Biden's response and solution to terrorism is paying protection money to terrorists. This is his foreign policy...payoff terrorists in the hope they won't hurt you.
Biden: Carve Iraq Into Three Countries
Biden's solution to Iraq was to partition it into three countries. Yeah, dividing up a country (or creating a new one - think Israel) has historically worked so well.
Has the partitioning of the former Yugoslavia improved matters? Bosnia, Croatia and Serbia, anyone?
How about the partitioning of India and Pakistan? And East Pakistan and West Pakistan? Bangladesh, anyone?
How about partitioning Transjordan (formerly part of the Mesopotamia region), from which part of Iraq was created? Oh yeah, it's been delightfully peaceful in the entire region since that happened.
Ireland partitioned into Northern and Southern regions hasn't helped matters any and many would say it is far worse.
America's own Civil War - partitioning the United States would have been a disaster.
Yet Biden's solution to Iraq is to split it up, ignoring the wisdom of Abraham Lincoln's, "a house divided against itself cannot stand."
Does Biden's foreign policy help you sleep better at night? Does it make you feel safer, more secure? The universal answer for anyone with the slightest degree of objectivity is a resounding "no."
Other Biden Baggage:
Other baggage Biden brings with him is that his son, Hunter, is a LOBBYIST!
Joe Biden has received over $200,000 in campaign donations from the credit card issuer MBNA, a Delaware-based company. He also received nearly $200,000 from Richard Scruggs, the Mississippi lawyer involved at the top of a bribery investigation.
Biden's Brain Aneurysms; Is He Healthy Enough To Be VP?
Is Biden healthy enough to be a heartbeat away from the presidency? He's suffered two brain aneurysms. He turns 66 on November 20th, and if Democrats want to make McCain's age an issue it certainly isn't out of the question to raise issues about Biden - only 7 years younger than McCain - and his health problems.
Biden was given only a 30 percent change of pulling through, and he did. But what does this mean today? Those brain blood vessels could rupture at any time. We don't know if he's fit or healthy enough to serve as the VP. On Saturday he referred to "Barack America"; is that a slip of the tongue or the result of brain damage from his aneurysms? We don't know.
Has Biden released his medical files? I don't think so, and neither has Obama. What Obama did release was his over-one-year-old medical report. No one knows anything about the health of Obama who is basically playing the same secrecy card about his health as did Bill Clinton, who never released his medical records to the public. Could Obama still be using crack cocaine? Could be - we don't know because he refuses to release his current medical records. Why such secrecy if he has nothing to hide?
The teaming of Obama and Biden represents an amalgamated monster of two empty suits, of two pacifists, of two terrorist appeasers. They are two Uber-Liberals who believe that a Nanny Government is the best kind of government. Both believe that government is the solution to all problems. Both believe in Blaming America First. Both believe that higher taxes and a redistribution of wealth is the answer. Both believe that growing the size of government at all levels is what's best for the electorate.
Obama picked Biden as his running mate because he needs gravitas. Obama - for all his false claims of a new political direction - selected the ultimate D.C. Insider as his running mate. Obama picked a losing perennial former presidential candidate as his VP in order to bring street cred to his campaign.
There's nothing new about Obama's candidacy or campaign. He has pulled out the same, tired, hackneyed pages from the failed Democrat playbook of years' past - only he has put a new cover on the same old pages. He's fooling no one except his Cultists who blindly and subjectively follow him as their Pied Piper.
There are now Two Empty Suits on the Democrat Ticket.
