Tracy Mehan is correct the election is too close to call, but he is too easily impressed by Obama’s political luck. Obama should be trouncing McCain by double digits, but he isn’t. In fact, the election being too close to call is not good news for the Obama camp. The Obama camp’s hysteria over the weekend that Americans will be turned off if by their candidate if he becomes the focus is a major revelation of how weak the candidate really is. While the American people are currently unsettled (and this is not good news for McCain) it is evident they rightly do not trust the shyster from Chicago.
Polls tend to favor Democrats. Thus, the shock that Ronald Reagan buried Jimmy Carter (in a race the pollsters said was tied) and Bush 43 beat both his opponents despite Al Gore’s attempt to steal the election in 2000 and Kerry’s deep pockets and exit polls. Pollsters were amazed Gerald Ford closed a double digit deficit and nearly won against Carter in ‘76. For that matter, had Bush 41 played hardball against Bill Clinton the so-called “Comeback Kid” would have been toast. Barack Obama is less experienced than Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, but based on the little we do know about him he’s as unethical as both. That’s scary.
If Obama wants to talk about issues then McCain should focus on the issue of Obama’s ties with corrupt bankers like Franklin Raines, dubious business practices, and illegal contributions. Those are issues and revelations of Obama’s flawed character and fair game in politics. What’s Obama so afraid of? He seems to meet the minimal Constitutional criteria to run for President (albeit his citizenship is questionable) so what’s he afraid of if the McCain focuses its attention on him? Wouldn’t it be better to air his dirty linen now and save him the embarrassment of impeachment and removal from office later when the skeletons coming falling out of the closet?p>It makes me sad Democrats are so unwilling to tell the American people who the real Barack Obama is. It makes me sad they’re so desperate to win elections they’ll smear a 26 year veteran of the Senate and genuine war hero. It makes me sad they have the gall to run a candidate who is so inexperienced and corrupt they have to keep the details of his life hidden from the American people to attempt to seize the White House. It makes me sad Democrats refuse to address the issues or even investigate the corrupt dealings of members of Congress with those who hurt America’s economy to feather their own nests. It makes me sad that the media is so biased and partisan they refuse to investigate Obama. But I’ll be happy when John McCain is the 44th President of the United States.
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.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
