Obama’s Stock Drops Among White Women

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, Democrats, Gender, Hillary, Polls

Gee…I wonder why… The Pew polls states specifically that Obama’s problems have more to do with personal reasons than politics, and in recent weeks Hillary has made this campaign ALL about how she’s getting cheated because of sexism in the media, etc. So who else are these white women going to point their finger at?

First this… Obviously this is a really bad call on McCain’s part, especially since the Joint Chiefs have recently said, very explicitly, that members of the military should not be involved with these political campaigns… WASHINGTON — The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has written an unusual open letter to all those in […]

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, Race, Religion, Video

Obama has already condemned Comedian Father Michael Pfleger, and his connection to this joker seems tenuous at best, but that’s not going to stop people from associating Obama with remarks he had absolutely nothing to do with. Here’s a story from the Today Show… Honestly, I think this might help Obama. Eventually, people are going […]

Obama’s Weather Underground Association Not Such a Big Deal

By Alan Stewart Carl | Related entries in Barack, Illinois, Liberalism

There are plenty of reasons to be skeptical about Barack Obama and his qualifications to be president. But one manufactured scandal I think just isn’t that big of a deal is Obama’s past associations with Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, the former members/leaders of the Vietnam-era terrorist group, the Weather Underground. Mind you, I have […]

I wonder what it’ll be after Saturday’s Michigan/Florida decision? The details… Since just after the North Carolina and Indiana primaries, Obama has led Clinton nearly every day, including a stretch of double-digit leads in the May 18-22 Gallup Poll Daily tracking releases.

Obama’s “Politically Ruthless Past” Actually Pretty Tame

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, History, Illinois

Okay, so you heard the story from Alan, but let’s be clear about what Obama did here.

The laws in Chicago state pretty plainly that people have to get actual signatures on petitions and […]

As if Barack Obama’s skilled defeat of Hillary Clinton hasn’t already proved his political muscle, now we get this story about how Obama won his first election: In his first race for office, seeking a state Senate seat on Chicago’s gritty South Side in 1996, Obama effectively used election rules to eliminate his Democratic competition.
