Here are some more golden oldies that should make Robert Stacy McCain and others ready to usher in the messianic age of Obama reconsider “the hope of audacious change:” “Poll Shows Dukakis Leads Bush,” “Many Reagan Backers Shift Sides;” “About those polls — political polls show Michael Dukakis leading George Bush”; “Dukakis takes 17 point lead over George Bush!” even in late July headlines read “Dukakis Lead Widens, According to New Poll.”
In 2004 Kerry was a shoo-in to beat George W. Bush — or so the media would have had the public believe — CNN regularly had headlines like “Kerry Leads Bush in New Poll”; in Europe Kerry was all the rage Europe backs the challenger; the critical swing voters were all for Kerry too Uncommitted Voters Give Kerry Nod; even in fundraising the Francophile Kerry was dazzling the media and DC elites Kerry Beats Bush, Sets New Records for Any Candidate Ever in a Single Quarter or a Single Month. Sounding all too familiar?
Even Democrat stooge and apologist Dan Rather warns, “A few words about these polls. First and foremost, no matter whom one wants to see in the White House, paying close attention to summer polls is pure folly. Some say to this line of reasoning, ‘Sure, but look at Michael Dukakis, for example: He was up 17 points over George H.W. Bush in 1988.’ And Dukakis lost â€” so what, precisely, is the point here?” Since 1968 all but 2 Presidents (Southern Democrats Carter and Clinton) have been Republicans so why should we believe 2008 is going to be any different? Had Ford and Bush 41 attacked their opponents sooner they’d have won too. They waited too long to hit the unknown Democrats where it hurts in their “experience” or obvious lack of it. McCain is correctly slamming Obama now and will continue to do so right up until the election. Obama may be so arrogant he can take the American voters for granted, but prayerfully we’ve not become as stupid as Europeans and will hand Obama the butt whoop’n he richly deserves.
What about party affiliation? What about it — the GOP is back to Reagan-era levels and the Democrats lost 2% of their support in just the last month. Party affiliation now stands at 31% Republican and 39% Democrat. We’ve bottomed out and they’re on a downward trend thanks to a feisty GOP and a rich, liberal, Democrat elite indifferent or even sympathetic to higher gasoline prices for working Americans. Maybe we should start asking “what happens if the Democrats’ numbers continue to plummet?”p>Time to accept the inevitable, John McCain, if he continues to campaign aggressively, is going to the 44th President of the United States and Barack Obama is going to be the first black with a Muslim heritage to win the Democrat party nomination for President, the first Democrat not to know how many states there are and how long presidents can serve, the recipient of the most potentially illegal foreign donations in Presidential politics (even more than Bill Clinton and John Kerry) or more accurately still the same old loser he was before this November. br> — Michael Tomlinson br> Camp Habbaniyah, Iraq /p> p> TRUST NONE br> Re: Lawrence Henry’s Do They All Do It? : /p>
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
