Robert Stacy McCain reveals what is wrong not only in the mainstream/Democrat media, but much of the conservative alternative media — a hubris that they know everything and we the people are merely their pawns. Swallowing hook, line and sinker Democrat media predictions is a dangerous game for conservative prognosticators. Way back in 1980 the pollsters told us the election was a tie — Reagan won in a landslide. Jeffrey Lord’s insightful “In the Tank for President Kerry” is a goldmine of wisdom. Yesterday, CBS led with this headline “CBS Poll: Presidential Race Tightens.” Obama’s lead had shrunk by 6% from their poll last Wednesday and now its 48% Obama, 45% McCain. The RealClearPolitics average has Obama up by 6%. The problem with polls is they are not factual information, but media tools to promote Democrat candidates. Even when polls favor the Republican the media will spin it for the Democrat every time.
What should McCain do? Dig deep and go after Obama. It is time to take the gloves off and start punching. McCain has nothing to lose as history has proven “dirt sticks to dirty candidates” and Obama is as dirty as they come. His ties to corrupt bankers who caused our current financial downturn are real and should be exploited. The Obama camp has already dug up the ancient “Keating 5” so McCain should tie Franklin Raines and the current financial mess to Obama. That would knock the feet out from under Obama on the one real issue that’s helping him the economy. When voters realize Obama is a major part of the problem he’s history, but is up to McCain to make that link, because the Democrat media won’t.p>McCain needs to air ads showing Obama doesn’t even know how many states there are or basically isn’t bright enough to be President. Lampooning and making fun of Obama isn’t going to hurt McCain, but it is going to cause Obama and his handlers to go berserk. McCain needs to start having fun at Obama’s political expense. Scorch the political landscape and scatter Obama’s political ashes to the wind. br> — Michael Tomlinson /p>

This article, whether true or false, will only serve to suppress votes for McCain.
Publishing something like this at this time has what purpose? Have your marketing people given you advice that you would sell more magazines if Obama is elected?

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?
