Obama dimocrats: just one big circle jerk

Geez, it's all just one big circle jerk with these freakin' Obamaphiles. Is there ANYONE with ties to The One that doesn't have dirt on their hands (or jizz on their face)?

Over at Thurber's Thoughts, there's a new post linking Jennifer Brunner, Ohio's do-nothing Sexretary of State with Acorn:


So our Secretary of State shares a campaign advisor with ACORN, takes direction from ACORN's voter registration arm, and refuses to verify over 200,000 mismatched registrations while claiming there is no voter fraud going on in Ohio...and that attention to such frivolous issues distracts her from doing her job.
What else? Let me guess. A tape of Obama toasting a PLO terrorist.

Naw. Too easy.

New RNC ad hits the nail on the proverbial head

Tuesday wisdom from the Gipper - wealth redistribution

Courtesy of the Patriot Post.

“The most dangerous myth is the demagoguery that business can be made to pay a larger share, thus relieving the individual. Politicians preaching this are either deliberately dishonest, or economically illiterate, and either one should scare us. Business doesn’t pay taxes, and who better than business to make this message known? Only people pay taxes, and people pay as consumers every tax that is assessed against a business. Begin with the food and fiber raised in the farm, to the ore drilled in a mine, to the oil and gas from out of the ground, whatever it may be—through the processing, through the manufacturing, on out to the retailer’s license. If the tax cannot be included in the price of the product, no one along that line can stay in business.” —Ronald Reagan

Proect yourself with a gun? Obama wants to make YOU the criminal

Video ad from the NRA's website GunBaNObama:




Imaging your child screaming in the middle of the night when a convicted felon breaks into your home. Worse, he comes back a second time. You use a firearm to defend yourself and your family. Unbelievably, Barack Obama voted to make YOU the criminal.

It's a true story, and it gets worse. Obama voted four times to deny citizens the right of self-protection, even in their home.

Defend freedom. Defeat Obama. Get the facts at GunBanObama.com
They can have my guns, but they'll have to take the bullets first.

Vote for John McCain and Sarah Palin on November 4.

David Limbaugh: Skip the "Liberal" Label

David Limbaugh's column today sums it all up. I usually avoid publishing a complete story, but this one's so important it needs to be published, and re-published, until Obama is stopped.

OK, Let's Skip the Liberal Label

There's little doubt America is a center-right nation, which is why Barack Obama denies and conceals his liberalism and packages himself as a harbinger of hope and change.

Obama's policies represent change all right: change from almost everything our Founding Fathers considered sacred and vital to the preservation of individual liberty in America.

He also offers hope: hope for those who share his shame in what America has become, what it stands for, and what makes it unique in world history. Hope that an unenlightened America can be remade by this "transformational" man in an image pleasing to George Soros, the Hollywood elite, MoveOn.org, the Daily Kos and Michael Moore.

But if labels bother you, let's look at Obama's alliances and policies and let them speak for themselves.

If you are so intoxicated with "hope" that you believe Obama wasn't aware of and not in sync with the Rev. Wright's militantly racist and anti-American views or his black liberation theology, then it's probably too much to ask for you to be objective about his links to Bill Ayers and ACORN.

Instead of restating Ayers' despicable actions and beliefs, I just want to know whether Obama believes Ayers has been rehabilitated, which he suggests when he touts him as "a professor of education." Though Obama says he was just 8 years old during Ayers' Pentagon-bombing days, he doesn't mention that he was an adult when he served on boards with Ayers, launched his state Senate campaign at his home, and gave a glowing jacket endorsement for Ayers' book. Nor does he tell you that just a few short years ago, Ayers stomped on the American flag and reaffirmed his pride in his criminal acts.

Concerning ACORN, what do you suppose the mainstream media would do to John McCain if an organization he represented, whose members he trained and who he promised would play a pivotal role in formulating his presidential policy agenda, were caught red-handed trying systematically to subvert the election process throughout America?

As for Obama's leftist policy positions and attitudes, how do you think the following would sit with most Americans?

  • His enabling of infanticide by arguing and voting against the Induced Birth Infant Liability Act in the Illinois Senate, which would have protected babies who survive failed abortions.
  • His support of open borders and driver's licenses for illegal immigrants.
  • His casual endorsement of Marxist redistribution of wealth.
  • His plan to let the Bush tax cuts expire, resulting in a massive tax increase for tens of millions, and his tax credits to tens of millions more not paying income taxes, all while fibbing that he's going to cut income taxes for 95 percent of Americans.
  • His plans to increase spending an estimated $1.3 trillion, not to mention the obscene dollars he would send overseas with the Global Poverty Act.
  • His condemnation of our liberation of Iraq from the brutal dictator Saddam Hussein in furtherance of our national security interests yet promising military interventions for humanitarian reasons where we clearly have no national interests at stake.
  • His opposition to the surge in Iraq and his plan to withdraw and jeopardize our imminent victory and the region's stability.
  • His reckless plan to embroil us in a quagmire in Afghanistan and agitate Pakistan, our important ally in the war on terror.
  • His naive commitment to negotiate with tyrants without preconditions.
  • His inclination toward unilateral nuclear disarmament.
  • His constant references to America's former greatness and his promises to restore our position of respectfulness in the world, betraying his full agreement that we've earned this supposed international disrespect.
  • His forfeiture of American sovereignty to international bodies in obeisance to the pantheistic religion of global warming.
  • His Kerryesque schizophrenia on guns and the Second Amendment.
  • His derision of small-town Americans as bitter clingers.
  • His thuggish approach toward those who dare to oppose him, such as Joe the Plumber, or anyone in St. Louis, whose criticism could have subjected them to criminal prosecution.
  • His outright mocking of the Bible while adamantly insisting he's a strong Christian: "Which passages of Scripture should guide our public policy? Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is OK and that eating shellfish is abomination? How about Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith? Or should we just stick to the Sermon on the Mount -- a passage that is so radical that it's doubtful that our own Defense Department would survive its application?"

Truthfully, I'm barely getting started. But can you honestly tell me Obama would have a prayer of being elected if he were honest about his agenda and allies and if the media, which share his radical views, weren't in the tank for him?



Don't vote for this radical, dangerous man and his minions, or his evil ideas.

Monday wisdom from the Gipper

From the Patriot Post:

“The major issue of this campaign is the direct political, personal and moral responsibility of Democratic Party leadership... for this unprecedented calamity which has befallen us. They tell us they have done the most that humanly could be done. They say that the United States has had its day in the sun; that our nation has passed its zenith. They expect you to tell your children that the American people no longer have the will to cope with their problems; that the future will be one of sacrifice and few opportunities. My fellow citizens, I utterly reject that view. The American people, the most generous on earth, who created the highest standard of living, are not going to accept the notion that we can only make a better world for others by moving backwards ourselves. Those who believe we can have no business leading the nation. I will not stand by and watch this great country destroy itself under mediocre leadership that drifts from one crisis to the next, eroding our national will and purpose. We have come together here because the American people deserve better from those to whom they entrust our nation’s highest offices, and we stand united in our resolve to do something about it.” —Ronald Reagan

Man in squirrel suit confronts Ohio's... squirrelly Democrats

Just saw this on the news a little while ago. From WBNS-10TV here in Columbus:


A man who was dressed in a squirrel costume was escorted from the Ohio Statehouse steps on Monday morning while Gov. Ted Strickland, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown and Mayor Michael Coleman were discussing negative campaigning by Republicans.

The squirrel held up a sign that said, "Don't Let Obama + ACORN Steal Ohio."

Strickland, Brown and Coleman stood on the Statehouse steps to call for an end to what they called "lying, deceitful ads" by Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain, 10TV's Patrick Bell reported.
That guy has some huge nuts.

Obamunition - more stuff on The One's dangerous past and present

The ammunition just keeps on coming, and the Leftmedia keeps refusing to look into the background of their chosen candidate. Preferring, instead, to look into the underwear size of Joe the Plumber or Sarah's IQ.

In today's National Review, our favorite author in the media Stanley Kurtz lists more ties between the radical left New Party, Acorn, income redistribution and The One:

During his first campaign for the Illinois state senate in 1995-96, Barack Obama was a member of, and was endorsed by, the far-left New Party. Obama’s New Party ties give the lie to his claim to be a post-partisan, post-ideological pragmatist. Particularly in Chicago, the New Party functioned as the electoral arm of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). So despite repeated attempts to distance himself from ACORN, Obama’s New Party ties raise disturbing questions about his links to those proudly militant leftists. The media’s near-total silence on this critical element of Obama’s past is deeply irresponsible.
VerumSerum discovered that not only were Obama and Ayers pallin' around, they shared an office:

Bill Ayers and Barack Obama shared an office. Ayers’ Small Schools Workshop, the one Obama directed all that money to is located at 115 S. Sangamon Street, Chicago, Illinois 60607. In 1998, the address for the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, where Obama presumably worked, was 115 S. Sangamon Street, Chicago, Illinois 60607.

According to this letter dated 1995, Obama’s office was on the 3rd floor. And according to this memo dated 1996, Small Schools Workshop was also on the 3rd floor.
Links to the documents here.

And Ken Timmerman's piece today over at Newsmax reminds us of the amount of potential foreign contributions, a violation of Federal law, could total as much as $63 million:

As Barack Obama reaped a stunning $150 million in campaign donations in September, bringing his total to more than $600 million, new questions have arisen about the source of his amazing funding.

By Obama’s own admission, more than half of his contributions have come from small donors giving $200 or less. But unlike John McCain’s campaign, Obama won’t release the names of these donors.

A Newsmax canvass of disclosed Obama campaign donors shows worrisome anomalies, including outright violations of federal election laws.

For example, Obama has numerous donors who have contributed well over the $4,600 federal election limit.

Many of these donors have never been contacted by the Obama campaign to refund the excess amounts to them.

And more than 37,000 Obama donations appear to be conversions of foreign currency. [emphasis mine - CTD]

According to a Newsmax analysis of the Obama campaign data before the latest figures were released, potential foreign currency donations could range anywhere from $12.8 million to a stunning $63 million in all. With the addition of $150 million raised in September, this amount could be much more.
Finally an article that Ayers is the ghost writer for Obama's two 'autobiographies' over at American Thinker:


Evidence continues to mount that Barack Obama had substantial help from Bill Ayers in the creation of his 1995 book, Dreams From My Father, a book that Time Magazine has called "the best-written memoir ever produced by an American politician." The evidence falls into five general categories, here summarized.

  • The discovery of new matching nautical metaphors from both Ayers and Obama that almost assuredly came from the same source: Ayers, a former merchant seaman.

  • The discovery of a Bill Ayers' essay on memoir writing, whose postmodern themes and phrases are echoed throughout Dreams.

  • A newly discovered book chapter from 1990 that shows clearly and painfully the limits of Obama's prose style the year he received a contract to write Dreams.

  • The revelation by radical Islamicist Rashid Khalidi that Ayers made his "dining room table" available for neighborhood writers who needed help.

  • A refined timeline that shows Ayers had the means, the motive and the time to help Obama when he needed it most.
So, we have a true empty suit (who couldn't even write his own memoirs), with ties to radical left-wing groups, receiving illegal foreign campaign contributions, totally un-vetted by the Leftmedia.

What's not to like about that?

I am Joe


Started by the wacky Iowahawk (you gotta love this guy):

I hope you will join me in expressing a simple bit of solidarity with this guy, Spartacus style. I AM JOE. I am a Wal Mart schlub in flyover country who changes my own oil and unclogs drains without a license. I smoke and drink beer and toss the football in the front yard with my kid, and I figure I can fend my way without handouts from some Magic Messiah's candy bags. Most everyone in my family and most everyone I grew up with is another Joe, and if you screw with them, you screw with me.

Are you a Joe? Say it proud. Leave it on every goddamn newspaper comment section and online forum. Let these pressroom and online thugs know you won't stay silent when they try to destroy the life of a private citizen for speaking his mind -- because for every one of them, there are a million Joe Wurzelbachers. And for that we should all be thankful.
I am Joe.

I'm from a white, lower-middle class neighborhood. My father was a high-school dropout who joined the U.S. Army, got his G.E.D., and became a highly-valued computer systems analyst in the 1960's.

I worked my way through college (along with help from the Veterans Administration), and I've been unemployed at times, but I've never collected a penny of unemployment. I have my own web development and graphic design business, and I'm supporting my family. I work hard every day, I go to Mass on Sunday, I listen to Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck and watch Fox News. I support John McCain for President of the United States, Sarah Palin as the Vice President.

I believe in small government, low taxes, I believe in God, Ronald Reagan, and the Constitution of the United States of America, the First and Second (actually ALL) Amendments. I believe a strong military and closed borders. I believe life begins at conception, and that all abortion is MURDER.

I'm a member of the National Rife Association. I own a shotgun, a handgun and a compound bow and I hunt whitetail deer. I love the outdoors, I LOVE my wife and kid, I LOVE the United States of America, the state of Ohio, and the Ohio State Buckeyes.

Bring it on, Barack Hussein Obama and Joe Biden. Bring your ACORN and lefty college cronies to our state, try to steal the election. Get the democratic Secretary of State and left-leaning Supreme Court on your side, it's not enough. We will win, or we will die trying.

I am a proud American.

I am Joe.
UPDATE: spread the word. Like Spartacus, we are all Joe. Post this on every blog, on every comment section of every website, on every newspaper comment section. Post post post.
I am Joe.

Leftmedia declares war on Joe the Plumber

Michelle Malkins' latest column at IBDeditorials.com spells out how the Leftmedia really feel about free speech: it's okay, as long as it doesn't oppose our Marxist candidates:


The Left Declares War On Joe The Plumber
By MICHELLE MALKIN

Six-term Sen. Joe Biden's got some nerve going after citizen Joe the Plumber. But the entrenched politician from Delaware, who fancies himself the nation's No. 1 Ordinary Joe, had no choice.

Joe Wurzelbacher has been probed more deeply than Barack Obama.

Joe Wurzelbacher has been probed more deeply than Barack Obama.


Obama-Biden simply can't tolerate an outspoken citizen successfully painting the Democratic ticket as socialist overlords. And so a dirty, desperate war against Joe Wurzelbacher is on.

The left's political plumbers are attacking the messenger, rummaging through his personal life and predictably wielding the race card once again. It's standard operating procedure for the Obama thug machine.

Wurzelbacher is the small-business man from Ohio who during a Toledo campaign swing last weekend questioned Obama about his tax plan. The revealing exchange was caught on tape and broadcast widely across the Internet and TV airwaves.

In response to Wurzelbacher's question about why he should be "taxed more and more for fulfilling the American dream," Obama sermonized that he needed to "spread the wealth around" because "it's good for everybody."

As always, Michelle hits the nail on the head.

Still don't think The One is a Marxist? Think again. From Wikipedia:

From each according to his ability, to each according to his need (or needs) is a slogan popularized by Karl Marx in his 1875 Critique of the Gotha Program.

The phrase summarizes the principles that, under a communist system, every person should contribute to society to the best of their ability and consume from society in proportion to their needs, regardless of how much they have contributed. (emphasis mine - CTD)

In the Marxist view, such an arrangement will be made possible by the abundance of goods and services that a developed communist society will produce; the idea is that there will be enough to satisfy everyone's needs.

As Michelle concludes:

After Wurzelbacher told Katie Couric that Obama's rhetorical tap dance was "almost as good as Sammy Davis Jr.," inevitable cries of "bigotry" followed. (There are now tens of thousands of Internet hits for "Joe the Plumber racist.")

Welcome to Joe the Plumber Derangement Syndrome. If you can't beat him, smear him.

It's the Obama way.
No way, no how, Nobama. Vote for John McCain and Sarah Palin on Nov. 4.

Video: Joe Wurzelbacher for President

If you're following the election, no doubt you've seen the video of this plumber in Toledo getting the truth from The One -- that he will take this man's money and give it to less fortunate individuals so they can have their piece of the pie. Socialism at its finest.

On Fox's Your World with Neil Cavuto, the plumber says it's clearly a socialist tactic, and he wasn't intimidated by Obama, "just another guy peddling his viewpoint."

Big money! Great prizes! Join ACORN today!


From Iowahawk. Heh.


The One now showing up in... 8th Grade Textbooks?

In a sign of things to come, a Racine mother discovers 15 pages about Barack Hussein Obama in a new 8th Grade textbook.

My 8th grade son is in an advanced English class at a public middle school here in Racine, Wisconsin. I just found out that my son's new (copyright 2008) Wisconsin - McDougal Littell Literature book has 15 pages covering Barack Obama.

I was shocked - No John McCain, no Hillary Clinton, no George Bush - Just Barack Obama. I'm wondering how it is that Obama's story gets put into an 8th grade literature book? It would be one thing, if it was just the tidbit about his boyhood days, but 15 pages, and they talk about his "Life of Service". Honestly, what has Obama really done to be included in this book? Not only that, but on page 847 there is a photo of Obama at the 2004 Democratic Convention with at least 8 Obama signs in the background! Front & center is an www.obama2004.com sign.

Now I understand that many teachers are liberals, but does the school have the right to shove Obama down our kid's throats? All the kids grouped together and read the story. After that, they discussed it... I guess it appears that Obama is planning ahead. If he doesn't get his coveted Presidency, Obama is going to make sure, that the younger generations know all about him, and his "life of service".

If you would like to see the 15 page story on Obama, it appears that you can order this book online. There is a note in the book that says, For more on Barack Obama, visit the Literature Center at www.ClassZone.com The book is: Wisconsin - 8th grade - McDougal Littell Literature - copyright 2008. The Obama story starts on page 830. I hope you will take the time to look at this book. I'm really angry about this - In fact, I would love to rip the pages right out of this book.

By the way, you might find this interesting: I did a little checking on McDougal Littell, and it appears that MCDOUGAL, ALFRED L CHICAGO , IL 60611 - N/A/RETIRED has been making contributions to Barack Obama's campaign!

I found that information on this website.

http://www.newsmeat.com/fec/bystate_detail.php?st=IL&last=MCDOUGAL&first=ALFRED

Now I'm not an expert at these things (just a PTA mom), but It looks to me like Alfred McDougal is connected to McDougal Littell the same company that publishes the 8th grade textbook that has 15 pages on Obama. Like I said, I'm not an expert, but I'm sure you have someone who can delve into the dirty little details.

I guess my question is: Is it ethical for an Obama supporter to publish an educational book which has a 15 page Barrack Obama story in it? If the tax payers are paying for these books, why is it okay for McDougal Littell to promote Obama? This really bothers me. I would have no problem with it, if Obama had actually done something important. Why is Obama being put up on a pedestal, before he actually wins the pedestal? All I can say, is we can thank the liberal media, and now the liberal book publishers. Thanks to them, I'm sure there are probably thousands of these books all across the United States.

Of course it's not ethical. Since most teachers are liberals indoctrinated by the likes of Bill Ayers in liberal arts colleges, there will be no outcry. At least, not from the teachers or administrators.
Get used to it if The One is elected.

The Prom Queen The One would have aborted...

I hate to be so cynical. I just read this article and tears came to my eyes that people could do such wonderful things in this day and age.

And the first thought I had: this girl would not have survived if it was up to the likes of B. Hussein Obama, The One, The Messiah.

From the Dallas Morning News:

Never has the selection of a homecoming queen sent so many tears falling so freely.

Kristin Pass, an 18-year-old senior with Down syndrome, became Aledo High School's homecoming queen Friday to a joyous standing ovation and the flutter of a thousand tissues on a remarkable night for an amazing young woman.

Her grandfather, Dr. David Campbell of Corsicana, escorted her onto the field and gave her a quick kiss on the cheek as Kristin joined eight other young women in the Homecoming Court to await the results of the vote, cast by the 360-plus members of Aledo High's senior class.

Then came the announcement ... and pandemonium.

"Oh my gosh! I was sitting in the student section and everyone stood up, crying and cheering for Kristin," said longtime friend and fellow senior Meaghan Geary, 17, who first met Kristin in the third grade. "It was great!"

One more time: Obama's ties to terrorism

It came up again today at TMQ2, an article describing a talk radio show tying the One with other controversial, criminal, terrorist, anarchists.

There is a far-reaching scandal brewing for presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama, thanks to a radio talk show host based in Oregon. Syndicated talk show host Laurie Roth’s revelations make the news story about Obama’s relationship with a racist, anti-American pastor look like child’s play.

A top official at the Pentagon during former-President George H. W. Bush’s Administration and a former CIA intelligence officer maintain that Barack Obama and former Weather Underground honcho William Ayers funneled money to Professor Rashid Khalidi, a known terrorist sympathizer.

Khalidi serves on the faculty of Columbia University in New York and is best known as the professor who invited Iranian President Ahmedinejad to visit Columbia University after he finished his speech at the United Nations. According to confidential sources, Khalidi has direct ties to the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), a group on the US State Department’s list of known terrorist groups.
Obama + David + Rezko + Ayers + Khalidi = MAJOR TROUBLE for the USA. Media, do your frickin' job!

Obama is a muslim Chicken. Heh.

The UK media gets it about Obama, why can't ours?

In the article in today's Daily Mail website, author Melanie Phillips gets it right: Obama is a dangerous left-wing radical candidate who has NOT been investigated by the US media.

With all eyes glued to the collapse of global capitalism as we know it, attention has been somewhat distracted from the race to lead what still remains the most powerful nation on earth - the United States. We ignore it at our peril.

From the shockingly partisan presentation by the pro-Obama media on both sides of the Atlantic, you'd think this was a contest between twin pillars of rectitude and inspirational high seriousness on the Democratic side, and a joke Republican ticket consisting of an erratic old man and a brainless, wacko, gun-toting beauty queen, who in a fit of madness John McCain picked as his vice-presidential candidate.

Unfortunately for the Democrats, the beauty queen in question, Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska, has struck an enormous chord with Middle America. As a result, Barack Obama's media supporters are making a huge effort to destroy her.

...What is really astounding, however, is the hue and cry over this non-event in Alaska while a raft of disturbing evidence about Senator Obama's connections is being either glossed over or not reported at all.

This may come as a shock to most people, but Obama is at the centre of a network of radical associations which he has tried to conceal.

Take for example his relationship with William Ayers, founder of the terrorist Weather Underground which bombed federal buildings in the 1960s and who has consistently maintained his radical views ever since.
Something we've been saying here for a long, long time. Time to wake up and smell the coffee, America!

Read the rest here. Please.

Obama: produce a freakin' birth certificate, already!



As you probably know, Pennsylvania attorney Phillip J. Berg filed a federal court case disputing the U.S. Citizenship of the One. Berg contends two things:
  1. Obama was not actually born in Hawaii, but in Kenya. His half-sister said he was born in one Hawaii hospital, the One said he was born in another in Hawaii. His material grandmother and brother brag about being in the delivery room when he was born.
  2. If Obama was born in Hawaii, he lost his citizenship when his mother re-married and moved with George Soretoros to Indonesia. According to Berg, to attend school in Indonesia, he would have had to be a citizen, which means adopted or 'recognized' by his stepfather. He attended a Madrassa (muslim school) there, and Berg has documentation showing that.
Obama, shut up your critics and produce a freakin' birth certificate.

Leftmedia, how about 'vetting' your candidate?

It's time for pitchforks and torches, folks. Don't let this monster steal the election and turn our country in a banana republic.

Does Obama have ANY friends who aren't COMMUNISTS?

Rhetorical question, I know. As succinctly as can be told (from The Jawa Report), the story of O:

Question: Does Barack Obama Have Any Friends Who AREN'T Communists?
The news of Barack Obama's close relationship with Frank Marshall Davis has been around before, but it's important. Via Accuracy in Media:

[T]hrough Frank Marshall Davis, Obama had an admitted relationship with someone who was publicly identified as a member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA). The record shows that Obama was in Hawaii from 1971-1979, where, at some point in time, he developed a close relationship, almost like a son, with Davis, listening to his "poetry" and getting advice on his career path. But Obama, in his book, Dreams From My Father, refers to him repeatedly as just "Frank."

The reason is apparent: Davis was a known communist who belonged to a party subservient to the Soviet Union. In fact, the 1951 report of the Commission on Subversive Activities to the Legislature of the Territory of Hawaii identified him as a CPUSA member.

Aren't we seeing a pattern here? One interaction with one old communist isn't particularly troubling. A handful of sporadic interactions with a handful of radical left-wingers may not be particularly troubling. But a lifelong pattern of extended associations and alliances with scores of fringe, America-hating radicals is very, very troubling indeed.

Just to be clear:

It's not just that Barack Obama's father was a Marxist economist or that his mother Stanley came from radical far-left roots.

It's not just that Obama's childhood mentor Frank Marshall Davis was a famous communist poet.

It's not just that Jeremiah Wright, Obama's pastor, counselor and spiritual mentor of 20 years is a racist, America-hating radical.

It's not just that Father Michael Phleger, Obama's other spiritual mentor is every bit as extreme as Wright.

It's not just that his wife Michelle has never been really that proud of America, or that she thinks this country is "mean".

It's not just that Obama refused to wear a flag, or that he refused to salute it during the national anthem.

It's not just that Obama's political and financial benefactor William Ayers is an unrepentant radical socialist terrorist.

It's not just that Bernadine Dohrn regrets that she didn't kill more people back in the 1960s.

It's not just that Alice Palmer, Obama's political mentor in Chicago, was a communist propagandist.

It's not just that Obama was a member of the radical socialist New Party or that he ran as a candidate for public office under their far-left platform.

It's not just that Obama was an agitator, trainer and attorney for the corrupt and radical-left ACORN.

None of these facts, by itself, tells you that much about Barack Obama. A reasonable person should, however, be able to look at this motley crew of left-wing communists and America-haters, realize that Barack Obama's rolodex is a veritable Who's Who of American Socialism, be very, very disturbed by that fact and ask some very probing questions about WHO Barack Obama is, WHAT he believes, and WHY this gang of radical America-haters considers Barack Obama such a good friend.
Connect the dots.

Life Imitates Art: Obama and Alexi Giannoulias

Watch this episode of the Sopranos as they figure out how to defraud HUD with a housing scam assisted by a "community organizer."



For the real-life story, google Obama and Alexi Giannoulias, or just go here.

Typical: Stifling debate on Islamic Terrorism

an article posted at FrontPage magazine this morning details the attempt of a student to invite Robert Spencer [of Jihadwatch.org, author of "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades)" and other books clearly spelling out the dangers of islam] to East Tennesse State:

When East Tennessee State University (ETSU) grad student Sean Rife tried to bring author Robert Spencer to campus, he wasn’t looking to start a fight. As the president of ETSU’s Society for Intellectual Diversity (SID), a non-partisan student group that champions free debate and academic freedom, Rife was just looking to stir discussion about a subject, Islamic terrorism, which increasingly has come to dominate Americans’ concerns. But a fight – and a lesson in politically correct bullying – is exactly what he got.

It began when Rife presented his request to the school’s Student Government Association. Like any other student, Rifled filled out the required paperwork, and submitted a funding request to a student government committee. Then, on Monday, he went before the committee to discuss his request – and that’s when the trouble started.

“I immediately got the impression that they were never seriously going to consider approving our request,” Rife said. Confirming the impression was the loaded question put to him by one the student representatives, Chad Hall. “He asked whether inviting Robert Spencer to campus would make Muslim students feel ostracized,” Rife recalls. “I thought that was pretty telling.”
Seems the pc left is spread far, wide and deep on college campuses today. Troubling. But not surprising.

Nuance: The ACORN doesn't fall far from the tree.

True dat.

Is ACORN stealing the election

Rhetorical question, I know. The blogosphere is abuzz with questions about ACORN, Obama's old employer and extreme left-wing radical vote-getting group.

One of the most succinct is at IBDEditorials.com:

Is ACORN Stealing The Election?
By INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY
Posted Wednesday, October 08, 2008 4:20 PM PT

Election Fraud: A radical group Barack Obama used to work for is committing voter-registration fraud in several states, ahead of the election. What does Obama know about this scam?

It's a legitimate question to raise now that the FBI has raided the offices of the nonprofit Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now in Nevada and North Carolina, two states where Obama and John McCain are running neck-and-neck. ACORN has registered bogus voters in both states.

The group's voter-registration fraud is rampant, and authorities plan a nationwide sweep of ACORN offices to collect records.

In Nevada, state officials say the fraudulent registrations included forms for the starting lineup of the Dallas Cowboys football team, including quarterback Tony Romo.

"Romo is not registered to vote in the state of Nevada," Secretary of State Ross Miller said, "and anybody trying to pose as Terrell Owens won't be able to cast a ballot on Nov. 4."

While those names will be flagged on Election Day, felonious voters may have better luck using other cutouts. Nevada, along with several other key battleground states, requires no ID to vote.

In North Carolina, where Obama has been running nonstop ads, ACORN has registered a record number of new voters, many of them suspicious. Statewide, Democrats are doing better than the GOP in new converts — even in traditionally Republican counties.

There have been 218,749 newly registered Democrats in North Carolina since January — more than five times the 38,337 new Republicans, state records show.

The numbers show a startlingly close political battle even in Republican-dominated Union County, with 4,233 new voters registering as Democrats and 4,362 as Republicans. In previous election years, new Republicans have outnumbered Democrats 2-to-1 in the fast-growing Charlotte-area county.

In Missouri, one ACORN registrant named Monica Rays showed up on no less than eight forms, all bearing the same signature.

Suspicious election officials sent letters to some 5,000 ACORN registrants in St. Louis, asking the letter recipients to contact them.

Fewer than 40 reponded.

In Kansas City, 15,000 registrations have been questioned, and last year four ACORN employees were indicted for fraud.

In addition, ACORN officials have also been indicted in Wisconsin and Colorado. Investigations against others are active in Ohio, Florida, Pennsylvania and Tennessee.

ACORN has also been registering convicted felons — including inmates — in Florida and other battleground states. ACORN boasts registering a record 1.5 million new voters so far this election.

What does all this have to do with Obama, besides the fact that he'd be the beneficiary of most, if not all, of these new votes?

For starters, Obama paid ACORN, which has endorsed him for president, $800,000 to register new voters, payments his campaign failed to accurately report. (They were disguised in his FEC disclosure as payments to a front group called Citizen Services Inc. for "advance work.")

What's more, Obama worked as executive director of ACORN's voter-registration arm, Project Vote, in 1992. Joined by two other community organizers on Chicago's South Side, Obama conducted the voter-registration drive that helped elect Carol Moseley-Braun to the Senate that year.

The next year, 1993, Obama joined the civil-rights law firm Davis Miner Barnhill & Galland, where he sued the state of Illinois on behalf of ACORN to implement the federal "Motor Voter" law, which the GOP governor at the time refused to do. Then-Gov. Jim Edgar argued, presciently, that the Clinton law would invite voter fraud.

Obama downplays his ties to ACORN, and his campaign denies coordinating with ACORN to register voters.

Meantime, New Orleans-based ACORN maintains that it has no control over volunteers who are falsifying application forms, that they're like employees who steal from the store.

But the fraud is widespread and not isolated. It also turns out that some ACORN execs allegedly are involved in a $1 million embezzlement cover-up at their headquarters. Representing them in the case is none other than Michelle Obama's old law firm in Chicago.

ACORN's corruption is not just out in the field, as they claim. There's a pattern of corruption from the top down.

McCain would be wise to start preparing a challenge to voter registration rolls should he lose the race in a close contest. He'd be crazy not to contest the results in light of these events.
There are posts today at Michelle Malkin detailing loads of ACORN badness as well.

Why isn't the DOJ going after these guys? Could this be Clintons' October surprise? Let us hope.

EXIT QUESTION: If the Obamessiah wins the election, and Juan McAmnesty is too afraid of being called racist to challenge him: When was the last time a sitting President was indicted for fraud? We would have to act fast before the libtards completely wipe out any oversight of the election.

UPDATE: Greta Van Sustern on Fox News interviewed Ohio's skank Secretary of State tonight. Of course Jennifer Brunner (D) denied any wrongdoing. Figures.

Barack Obama and the Strategy of Manufactured Crisis

In a fascinating article at American Thinker,


America waits with bated breath while Washington struggles to bring the U.S. economy back from the brink of disaster. But many of those same politicians caused the crisis, and if left to their own devices will do so again.

Despite the mass media news blackout, a series of books, talk radio and the blogosphere have managed to expose Barack Obama's connections to his radical mentors -- Weather Underground bombers William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis and others.

Yet, no one to my knowledge has yet connected all the dots between Barack Obama and the Radical Left. When seen together, the influences on Obama's life comprise a who's who of the radical leftist movement, and it becomes painfully apparent that not only is Obama a willing participant in that movement, he has spent most of his adult life deeply immersed in it.

But even this doesn't fully describe the extreme nature of this candidate. He can be tied directly to a malevolent overarching strategy that has motivated many, if not all, of the most destructive radical leftist organizations in the United States since the 1960s.

In an earlier post, I noted the liberal record of unmitigated legislative disasters, the latest of which is now being played out in the financial markets before our eyes. Before the 1994 Republican takeover, Democrats had sixty years of virtually unbroken power in Congress - with substantial majorities most of the time. Can a group of smart people, studying issue after issue for years on end, with virtually unlimited resources at their command, not come up with a single policy that works? Why are they chronically incapable?

Why?

One of two things must be true. Either the Democrats are unfathomable idiots, who ignorantly pursue ever more destructive policies despite decades of contrary evidence, or they understand the consequences of their actions and relentlessly carry on anyway because they somehow benefit.

I submit to you they understand the consequences. For many it is simply a practical matter of eliciting votes from a targeted constituency at taxpayer expense; we lose a little, they gain a lot, and the politician keeps his job. But for others, the goal is more malevolent - the failure is deliberate. Don't laugh. This method not only has its proponents, it has a name: the Cloward-Piven Strategy. It describes their agenda, tactics, and long-term strategy.
Seems part of Alinsky's, and the Cloward-Piven strategy, is to overload the system until it fails. With illegal voter registrations (ACORN). With high-risk mortgages (Fannie/Freddie). With lawsuits questioning the constitutionality of every little detail of American life (ACLU).

This article digs even deeper than previous looks at the obamessiah. Read the entire article here.

Obama's Strange Bedfellows

Hurry, watch this before it disappears from YouTube. (H/T TMQ2) It's long, but great ammo to have a discussion with your liberal neighbor about the obamessiah.

Obama campaign funding coverup continues

As noted here Sept. 30, the obamessiah campaign has over $200 million in campaign donations from 'small' investors that appear to be coming from outside the country and violating the total amount per donor, and the campaign is ignoring requests for investigation.

Today an article at American Spectator notes an insider in the Federal Election Commission trying to investigate, and his requests are falling on deaf ears.

An auditor for the Federal Election Commission is attempting to have his bosses seek a formal investigation into the collection by the Obama for President campaign of more than $200 million in potentially illegal political donations, including millions of dollars of illegal, foreign donations, and has sought a request for assistance from the Department of Justice or Federal Bureau of Investigation. But the analyst's requests have largely been ignored. "I can't get anyone to move. I believe we are looking at a hijacking of our political system that makes the Clinton and Gore fundraising scandals pale in comparison. And no one here wants to touch it."

One reasons cited by his superiors, says the analyst, is that involvement by the Justice Department or FBI would be indicative of a criminal investigation, something the FEC would prefer not take place a month before the presidential election. Such actions, though, have been used to scuttle Republican campaigns in the past, the most famous being the Weinberger case in the days leading up to the 1992 re-election bid of President George H.W. Bush.

The analyst, who declines to be identified for fear of retribution, says that on four different occasions in the past three months, he sought to open formal investigations into the Obama campaign's fundraising techniques, but those investigations have been discouraged. "Without formal approval, I can't get the resources I need, manpower, that kind of thing. This is a huge undertaking." And the analyst says that he believes that campaign finance violations have occurred.

Call me a tinfoil hat loony, but it appears the fix is in everywhere. Get ready to learn to march, take orders, and praise the obamessiah!

DNC Steps in to silence Obama birth certificate lawsuit

From WorldNetDaily:

DNC steps in to silence lawsuit over Obama birth certificate
Democrat suing his own party says it's 'like they're in cahoots'

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted: October 04, 2008

© 2008 WorldNetDaily

The man suing Sen. Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee for proof of Obama's American citizenship is outraged that his own party – rather than just providing the birth certificate he seeks – would step in to silence him by filing a motion to dismiss his lawsuit.

As WND reported, prominent Pennsylvania Democrat and attorney Philip J. Berg filed suit in U.S. District Court two months ago claiming Obama is not a natural-born U.S. citizen and therefore not eligible to be elected president. Berg has since challenged Obama publicly that if the candidate will simply produce authorized proof of citizenship, he'll drop the suit.

Berg told WND the longer the DNC tries to ignore his lawsuit or make it go away – instead of just providing the documents – the more convinced he is that his accusations are correct.

Despite assertions by the Washington Post, FactChecker.org and other organizations that Obama has produced a certified Hawaiian birth certificate, Berg told WND he remains "99.99 percent sure" that the certificate is a fake and he wants a court, not a website, to determine its validity.

Earlier last week, lawyers for Obama and the DNC filed a joint motion to dismiss Berg's lawsuit. The fact that the DNC joined in the dismissal request has Berg fuming, believing his party's leaders have ignored his pleas for proof in order to favor their chosen candidate over a rank-and-file constituent.

"I think it's outrageous," Berg said. "The Democratic National Committee should be ensuring the Democratic Party and the public that they have a qualified candidate up there. To file a joint motion is like they're in cahoots.

"Since then, I have asked by way of press release that Howard Dean resign, because (the DNC members) are not fulfilling their duties," Berg said.

"The DNC has a responsibility to all Democrats in this country to make sure that all of their candidates are properly vetted and properly qualified," Berg added. "I think it's really an outrage to the 18-plus million people who voted for Obama and the people who donated more than $425 million to him under false pretenses."

Berg is frustrated, not only with his own party's leadership for allegedly not investigating Obama's background, but also with the major news outlets for failing as well.

"I should also be suing the national media and their disgrace for not properly vetting, inspecting or checking on Barack Obama.

"Look what they're doing to Governor Palin: They're opening up her closet doors, they're going through everything personal, but no one has ever gone after Obama. It doesn't make sense," Berg said.

Obama's website counters Berg's claims with links to articles that affirm the validity of his citizenship and an image of a Hawaiian birth certificate for Barack Hussein Obama, born in Honolulu, Aug. 4, 1961. The webpage is part of the Obama campaign website's "Fight the Smears" section, an effort to prevent reports that Obama claims are false from disseminating as damaging rumors.

Berg acknowledges that as long as his lawsuit remains outstanding, the public will talk, and he told WND he wants Obama to quickly prove him wrong or the court to quickly prove him right.

"I've been on about 50 radio shows around the country," Berg said, "and on every one I've put out a challenge: Barack Obama, if I'm wrong, just come forth with certified copies of these documents and I'll close down the case."

Berg told WND, "I've had 19 million hits on my website. …Those people talk to other people, now we're up to 20, 30, 40 million people who are aware of this controversy, and it's going to drastically affect the entire election."

When asked what he would do if the DNC succeeded in getting his case dismissed, Berg said he would "immediately file an appeal to the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, and if we don't get a fair ruling there, immediately to the U.S. Supreme Court."

"We're dealing with the U.S. Constitution and it must be followed," Berg explained. "I want the Constitution enforced; that's my main reason for doing this.

"The real outrage is that there's nothing in our system that provides that a candidate must provide that his qualifications are true and correct before he or she runs, and that safeguard should be put into our system by law," Berg said.
In the GOP, we have RINOs... could this man possibly be a DINO?

Obama and his past associations

Just saw this video posted over at Little Green Footballs. Pretty well sums up our points about the obamessiah.




Watch it and weep. If he gets elected.

“Freedom is something that cannot be passed on in the blood stream, or genetically. And it’s never more than one generation away from extinction. Every generation has to learn how to protect and defend it, or it’s gone and gone for a long, long time. Already, many of us, particularly those in business and industry, there are too many who have switched rather than fight. And it’s time that particularly, some of our corporations learned, that when you get in bed with government, you’re going to get more than a good night’s sleep.” —Ronald Reagan

The Realities of Hope N Change

In an open comment post at Michelle Malkin's blog:

On October 5th, 2008 at 11:43 am, YTZGal said:
Received in an e-mail making the rounds:

Hope And Change:
Once upon a time, there was a charismatic and eloquent young leader who decided his nation needed a change and he was the one to implement it. The people were receptive and ready for a change. He spoke passionately when denouncing the existing system and the press loved him.

Nobody questioned what he believed in or who his friends were. He would help the poor and bring free medical care and education to all. He would bring justice and equality. He said, ‘I am for hope and change, and will bring you both.’

Nobody bothered to ask about the change, so by the time the executioner’s guns went silent, all guns had been confiscated. When everyone was finally equal, they were equally poor, hungry, and miserable. Their free education was worthless. When the change was fully implemented, the country had been reduced to Third World status. More than a million people fled in small boats and rafts.

The charismatic young leader was Fidel Castro; the nation, Cuba.

The citizens of the United States would never fall for a charismatic, eloquent young leader who promises hope and change without asking, ‘What change, and how much will it cost us?’

Would we?
They did, after all, have a poster of Che in their Houston campaign office.

Palin defends her remarks on Obama-Ayers connection


An Associated Press article quotes the 'Cuda in fundraiser speeches over the weekend:
BURLINGAME, Calif. - Sarah Palin defended her claim that Barack Obama "pals around with terrorists," saying the Democratic presidential nominee's association with a 1960s radical is an issue that is "fair to talk about."

Palin, the Republican vice presidential candidate, launched the attack Saturday and repeated it Sunday, signaling a new strategy by John McCain's presidential campaign to go after Obama's character.

"The comments are about an association that has been known but hasn't been talked about," Palin said as she boarded her plane in Long Beach, Calif. "I think it's fair to talk about where Barack Obama kicked off his political career, in the guy's living room."
Of course, the AP defends their candidate.

Obama has denounced the radical views and actions of Bill Ayers, a founder of the violent Weather Underground group during the Vietnam era. On Sunday, Obama dismissed the criticism from the McCain campaign, leveled by Palin, as "smears" meant to distract voters from real problems such as the troubled economy.
Once again, using Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals to deflect the attention from his past. Okay, let's talk about the troubled economy. If McCain/'Cuda start talking about the real source for the troubled economy, obamessiah will start calling that racist as well.
This, and many other associations (Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Tony Rezko, and on, and on, and on) have been well-documented in "smear" books such as David Freddoso's The Case Against Barack Obama and Jerome Corsi's Obama Nation.

I like the fact that 'Cuda mentioning it gets it noticed in the media. Pehaps if it gets repeated enought, people will pay attention and McCain can win this election in spite of his lame campaign.
Look! Shiny object!

10 Things McCain must do to win

Bill Hobbs, Communications Director for the Tennessee Republican Party, lays out his plan for the McCain/Palin camp to succeed:

1. Return to Michigan
He suggests sending Sara'Cuda and Todd to mingle with the folk in that state up north, to remind them what a schlub their current Democratic governor is, how her tax and spend policies have accelerated the demise of that state.

2. Run against the bailout
Althought he did sign the bill, he should point out it's "the only economic package that Congress could come up with and pass while operating in a crisis."

As Hobbs says, "The bailout bill is like giving a transfusion to a gunshot victim while neither removing the bullet or closing the wound. McCain needs to point out who pulled the trigger." The Dhimmicrats, of course.

3. Don't run against Congress. Run against Washington.

4. Hammer Obama on the Wall Street mess. It's the Dhimmicrat's faults much more than GW's 'failed policies.' (If I hear that phrase from another dhimmi, I'm going to start shooting.)

Dems want to blame 'deregulation' by Bush, but most of the deregulation they wrongly blame pre-dates Bush. Both Bush and McCain proposed legislation to reform Fannie and Freddie that might have prevented the current crisis. Dems like Sen. Chris Dodd and Elmer Fudd (aka Barney Frank) killed their proposals.

5. Hammer Washington for the pork, earmarks and giveaways stuffed into the bailout bill.

Hobbs quotes McCain, who has said numerous times (including the event at the Capital Center here in Columbus last Monday): "You will know their names and I will make them famous." McCain should start today on that promise.

6. Hammer Obama on his tax proposals and his spending proposals.

During the debates, Obama didn't name ONE THING he was going to cut as a result of the bailiout bill spending. Biden names only foreign aid. That money has to come from somewhere... I'm thinking from my paycheck.

Hobbs also reminds us how the dhimmicrats ALWAYS lie: "Obama promises to cut taxes. Bill Clinton promised that too when he was first running for president. A few weeks after he was worn in, Clinton raised taxes on the middle class."

7. Promise to submit only balanced budget proposals.

They say it can't be done, but unless we start trying, it's not gonna happen and we'll continue to rack up record deficits. It's symbolic, but it's a great ploy.

8. Point out, endlessly, that Joe Biden's tenure in Congress has been so effective that America doesn't have any problems that $700 billion in taxpayers' money can't fix.

Obviously, Biden's party was in a majority for most of those years.

9. Let Palin take the lead on economic issues.

As Hobbs notes, Palin has 'street cred' because of her real main street experience in small business. That should offset some of the complaints of McCain's family wealth.

10. ENERGY is the key to the campaign.

As Hobbs says, "energy policy is at the intersection of national security, foreign policy and the economy. So... hammer the link between higher energy costs and the struggling economy, and the link between foreign energy dependence and national security, and point out that Obama and the Democrat's opposition to significant increased domestic production of oil, natural gas and oil from shale means we'll continue sending $700 billion a year to foreign countries that don't like us very much."

Of all these proposals, I think #10 is the biggest opportunity for McCain to gain ground. As Sara'Cuda chided Biden in the debate, "the phrase is 'drill, baby, drill.'

Great article. Read it in its entirety here.

Of course, the biggest thing McCain must do is get out of his own way. After scoring big in the Veep debate with Sara'Cuda Thursday night, McCain is taking the weekend off.

God help us.

More from the obamessiah youth corps

Truly frightening, like the messiah's children choir in Kalifornia.



The indoctrination begins! If you aren't on board, be very, very afraid.

The Common Sense Fix: Pass it on

From Dave Ramsey comes this common sense fix to the current economic crisis, one which will solve the issues with minimal gov't intervention:


Years of bad decisions and stupid mistakes have created an economic nightmare in this country, but $700 billion in new debt is not the answer. As a tax-paying American citizen, I will not support any congressperson who votes to implement such a policy. Instead, I submit the following three steps:

Common Sense Plan.

I. INSURANCE

A. Insure the subprime bonds/mortgages with an underlying FHA-type insurance. Government-insured and backed loans would have an instant market all over the world, creating immediate and needed liquidity.

B. In order for a company to accept the government-backed insurance, they must do two things:

1. Rewrite any mortgage that is more than three months delinquent to a 6% fixed-rate mortgage.
a. Roll all back payments with no late fees or legal costs into the balance. This brings homeowners current and allows them a chance to keep their homes.
b. Cancel all prepayment penalties to encourage refinancing or the sale of the property to pay off the bad loan. In the event of foreclosure or short sale, the borrower will not be held liable for any deficit balance. FHA does this now, and that encourages mortgage companies to go the extra mile while
working with the borrower—again limiting foreclosures and ruined lives.

2. Cancel ALL golden parachutes of EXISTING and FUTURE CEOs and executive team members as long as the company holds these government-insured bonds/mortgages. This keeps underperforming executives from being paid when they don’t do their jobs.

C. This backstop will cost less than $50 billion—a small fraction of the current proposal.


II. MARK TO MARKET

A. Remove mark to market accounting rules for two years on only subprime Tier III bonds/mortgages. This keeps companies from being forced to artificially mark down bonds/mortgages below the value of the underlying mortgages and real estate.

B. This move creates patience in the market and has an immediate stabilizing effect on failing and ailing banks—and it costs the taxpayer nothing.


III. CAPITAL GAINS TAX

A. Remove the capital gains tax completely. Investors will flood the real estate and stock market in search of tax-free profits, creating tremendous—and immediate—liquidity in the markets. Again, this costs the taxpayer nothing.

B. This move will be seen as a lightning rod politically because many will say it is helping the rich. The truth is the rich will benefit, but it will be their money that stimulates the economy. This will enable all Americans to have more stable jobs and retirement investments that go up instead of down. This is not a time for envy, and it’s not a time for politics. It’s time for all of us, as Americans, to
stand up, speak out, and fix this mess.

VP Debate Moderator Gwen Ifill tainted?

'Journalist' Ifill has a Financial interest in outcome of debate

From Michelle Malkin comes this shocking (not really) expose of the moderator of the VP debate, Gwen Ifill from PBS, who apparently has a financial interest in the outcome of the debate: a book to be published on inauguration day 2009.


Despite the protestations of her colleagues that she will be fair, Ifill has appeared on numerous radio and TV talk shows over the past several months to cash in on her access to the Obama campaign. She recently penned a fawning cover story on the Obamas for Essence magazine that earned much buzz. The title? “The Obamas: Portrait of an American Family.” A sample of Ifill’s hard-hitting investigative journalism, illustrated with Kennedyesque photos of the Obamas and children posing at home on the backporch and by the piano: “Barack Obama is sitting in the back of his rented luxury campaign bus with its granite counters and two flat-screen TVs. The Illinois senator’s arms are wrapped around his wife, Michelle, whom he doesn’t get to see much these days. At this very moment he is, of all things, singing.”

Spread the word. The public deserves to know about this.


Let's hope Sarah'cuda starts the debate with "Gwen, congratulations on the publishing of your new book on Mr. Obama. I'm sure we're all looking forward to it being published next January." Not likely.

Why is the McCain campaign taking this lying down??
UPDATE: McCain said he's concerned, but thinks Ifill will do a professional job.
UPDATE: CNN.com has the story.
