Re: Ben Stein’s Witchcraft’s Candidate:
Ben Stein is, again, spot on about the shameful endorsement by
Obama of the reprobate, Martha Coakley. The good news is that as
MA voters we received 17 calls urging us to vote: 15 for Brown, 2
for Coakley. She’s done. And none too soon. The system that
elevated her remains. Possibly more wary than before, but Coakley
won a primary handily: what’s that say about the Democrat party’s
core in MA? She’s a true reflection of them. And they are

OVERUSING THE WORD
Re: Larry Thornberry’s None Dare Call It Socialism:
“Socialism” is a charge made too often and a lazy short-handed talking point meant to shut down the debate like lib’s use “racist” against conservatives to shut down debate. I say this because it is rarely defined and only political junkies like myself may have a little understanding to the real meaning.
A good example would be Sean Hannity’s man on the street interviews where he uses a line of questioning meant to shame the subject into admitting he/she is a Marxist, socialist supporting Obama-bot. What he rarely does is explain the two different economic models and how Reagan used capitalism to defeat Socialism. Or how freedom is necessary for capitalism to flourish and how Socialism leads to government passing a tax to punish the use of fossil fuels and a credit to use wind power. You don’t even have the freedom to buy…no, make any kind of light bulb you want.
I also feel that the tag “Socialism” is falling short on defining what the lib’s legislative actions expose as they try to justify their parliamentary maneuvering.

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?
