Wow - I love his description of Father Pfleger as a "whacko" - perfect! His advice is solid, I think - and I agree that McCain SHOULD have been hammering away about Wright and Ayers long ago. Frankly, the MSM should have been as well, but I have given up expecting them to actually do their jobs anymore.
And with the debate coming up, one can expect questions about the economy. Needless to say, it has been BIG in the news of late. For some reason, the majority of people polled believe Obama will do better. Why, I don't know - he has absolutely no track record on anything anywhere in the neighborhood of dealing with an issue of this magnitude. I think we can chalk that up to the MSM shilling for him shamelessly. But, many of this country's CEOs do not think so. Out of 751 CEOs polled, 80% think McCain is better for the long term health of the economy, according to Chief Executive Magazine. This assertion was affirmed by the former CEO of Godfather's Pizza, Herman Cain this morning. He said, in no uncertain terms, that John McCain is CLEARLY better for the economy. Oh, and since everyone is keeping score these days (thanks so much for that, Barack), Mr. Cain is African American.
Mr. Cain isn't the only one who thinks McCain would be better. The following is basically a combination of Krauthammer and Cain in one Rudy Guiliani (I know - I cannot believe I am including him either, but I think he is right on this issue):
And while we are talking Economics, last night, a bunch of former Hillary Clinton supporters, led by Lady Lynn Forester de Rothchild, held a major fundraiser for John McCain and Sarah Palin. They raised $10,000,000 in that fundraiser. As to why these people decided to hold this fundraiser, the article contained the answer:
While Mrs. Clinton has implored her former supporters to back Senator Barack Obama, some still harbor ill will towards him, organizers said.
“These people want to give their vote of disapproval,” said Mr. Lausell. “This is a way they’re doing it.”
Well, yeah, that's sure one way of voicing one's disapproval - raising a cool $10 mil. Wowie zowie.
Gee willikers, who could not want to support someone as humble, warm, and supportive as these folks (h/t to Paul Villareal)??
Oh, yeah. Add in the "Bros Before Hos" t-shirts, and the more despicable ones Obamabots are wearing these days, and I simply cannot imagine how people like Lady Lynn and others aren't supporting this guy? Sheesh - what sore losers. (That is major snark, just in case you were confused.)
Hmmm - I wonder if McCain will bring up those t-shirts tonight? That would sure be an interesting debate, wouldn't it?? Can't you just SEE Obama trying to WORM his way out of that one??
Anywho, those Hillary-Now-McCain supporters are not the only ones who are resistant to Obama as president. Not by a long shot. There was an interesting comment by Desgans - in French - overnight at No Quarter's post, "Barack Obama- First President of the World":
Bonjour je suis Française et je viens de penser à un feuilleton que j’adorai ici en France, les acteurs : Jane Badler, Marc Singer, Faye Grant pour le film Vqui me fait penser à ce qui se passe aux US, PUMA sont les résistants et BHO partisants les lézards !!
Mon Dieu! Basically (according to PA goes Red),those of us who will not support this Selected nominee, the one who espouses the ideologies of William Ayers and Jeremiah Wright, whose arrogance, hubris, and just plain condescension, coupled with a dearth of experience, are Freedom Fighters like in the movie, "V." Or like John Connors and company from "The Terminator," I'm thinking. Yep, I can buy that. I do feel like I am fighting for my country to not be overtaken by those who do not have her best interests at heart, or at the least, have primarily THEIR interests at heart. The way in which the Obama campaign treats citizens of this country, especially women (and don't forget Donna Brazile's concept of the New Democratic Party - none of you bitter, clingy, religious, rural, elderly, and Hispanics need apply) makes that pretty clear. At the very least, our presidents should have the nation's best interest as their bottom line. Obama is not only unqualified for this position, he does not fulfill that qualification. So, yeah - resistance here I come!
Ya think McCain can work THAT into the debate?!
