The Surge – Tactic or Strategy???

I’m with Obama and Biden on this. The SurgeTM was a TACTIC, not a strategy. The overall strategy, to give “breathing room” for reconciliation to take place in Iraq and for diplomacy to achieve the kind of stability and negotiated peace necessary for Iraq to move forward without a USA presence has NOT been achieved. Here’s Biden, schooling “John” on […]

A Sane Alternative to the Bailout Plan?

Have you seen this email? Hi Pals, I’m against the $85,000,000,000.00 bailout of AIG. Instead, I’m in favor of giving $85,000,000,000 to America in a We Deserve It Dividend. To make the math simple, let’s assume there are 200,000,000 bonafide U.S. Citizens 18+. Our population is about 301,000,000 +/- counting every man, woman and child. So 200,000,000 might be a […]

Let the Cannibal Feast Begin

Wall Street money-handlers and the Republican Party have long been co-dependent partners. But, after this week? Ehhhh…not so much. Check out this email to James Pethokoukis at the US News and World Report (nicked from Andrew Sullivan’s Daily Dish (emphasis mine.): I am a lifelong ( 51 years old) “rock-ribbed” conservative…. What an eye opener this week has been! I […]

Unhatched Chicken Counting by the McCain Campaign

Unhatched Chicken Counting by the McCain Campaign

Oops. Someone rolled out an internet banner ad a day early, it appears: Screen shot of the webpage from the Wall Street Journal featuring the ad HERE. “McCain Wins Debate!” declares the ad which features a headshot of a smiling McCain with an American flag background. Another ad spotted by our eagle-eyed observer featured a quote from McCain campaign manager […]

Time For a New Definition

Maverick – mav·er·ick /ˈmævərɪk, ˈmævrɪk/ Pronunciation – [mav-er-ik, mav-rik] noun – A person who lurches from idea to idea with no rational or logical explanation or progression in order to appear to be challenging the status quo. Thanks to John McCain for this new definition. I’m just sayin’…

He Comes To Save the Daaaaaay!!!

Hilzoy over at Obsidian Wings blog sums up McCain’s blatant and cynical politicization of the financial crisis perfectly: David Kurtz notes that McCain had spoken to the House Republicans before they staged their revolt, and that a number of them reported that he seemed sympathetic to their ideas. McCain’s campaign, however, issued a statement saying that he “did not attack […]

“Suspending My Campaign” My Ass

John McCain said this week he was suspending his campaign to help solve the nation’s financial crisis. Like hell he did: In Ohio, Brenda Lewis of the Greene County Victory Office seemed surprised there was any doubt that the office would be open. “Suspension of the campaign?” she asked out loud, before saying that her colleagues would be phone banking, […]

Oh, This is Rich

From Politico’s fine reporting: President Bush’s lame duck status, and his heavy hand in dealing with lawmakers in his own party for the last seven-plus years, is also coming back to haunt the White House, as House Republicans grumble that Bush is “trying to tear up the Constitution” by committing the federal government to such a massive intervention in the […]

AIG CEO Already Cashing In

I’d feel a WHOLE lot more comfortable with the government bailouts if fat cats like the CEO at AIG weren’t selling their shares a few days after the bailout to the tune of $1 BILLION. Seriously, this kind of thing couldn’t have been prohibited as part of the buyout deal? What the hell? Nicked from AMERICAblog. I’m just sayin’…

This is So Embarassing

This is So Embarassing

Wanna know what I think is one of the worst aspects of John McCain’s grandstanding and policizing of attempts to resolve our national financial “hiccup”? The fact that the rest of the world is watching our politicians act like complete douchebags in an effort to win an election. The Republicans should be ashamed of how they are behaving. And the […]
