Nancy Pelosi and Spin

Reminded me of this:

So, let me see if I can get this right. The Bailout bill fails not because 93 Democrats voted against it, including several chairmen of influential committees, and they came up 13 votes short. And it is the Republicans who are at fault, because their feelings were hurt by Nanny's partisan tirade?
If this really was a serious vote, would she have taken the time to do the tirade, or would she say that this is something that the country needs and do anything to make it happen. But again, the question answers itself.

A 9 Minute Explanation for What Happened

UPDATE: Apparently, Youtube pulled it because it was too embarrassing to the Democratic Party that brought you this mess. Thank God for the WWW part of the Internet. The video is now running again.

Blogging has been non-existent because of work and my campaign, but it's Friday night, and I had to stay home to watch the debate. So, without further ado, some observations:

For those Democrats who say that Obama is going to restore America's greatness, which country is now the greatest?

How can Obama give a tax break to 95% of the people in this country if one third doesn't pay taxes? Is he going to lower their FICA?

Why is it that Sarah Palin is considered an inadequate Vice President because she has no foreign policy experience, but that is okay for Obama, whom the Democrats have selected as their Presidential nominee? And why do they seem to forget that if Palin did become the President, there are these collections of bureaucrats called the "State Department" who may be able to assist her?

Why do we never hear all of the stupid things that Joe Biden says?

During campaigning, I have found that the poor are not automatically Democratic voters. In a way, this makes perfect sense to me. Thirty-four years ago, I applied for unemployment, and found that it was easier to get a job. I took student aid for my undergraduate, and learned to never do that again for my MPA and my law degree. If you look closely, you will find that the bureaucrats who are supposed to provide service find it easier to deny, delay and obfuscate than to actually provide service. There is a rich field to be tilled by the Republicans if they are willing to try.

With the mess of the economy, why aren't Republicans hoping that Obama wins, just so they can have two years of saying "I told you so!"

Who doesn't think that if Obama is elected and he gives $5,000 for each student to afford college, that the tuition will not increase by exactly $5,000 per year?

Biden Questions Rangel's Patriotism

Joe Biden has now declared that it is patriotic to pay taxes. Aside from forgetting the fact that 40% of all Americans pay no income tax, this is the most ridiculous argument that I have ever heard. It is designed to set up the false premise that to be patriotic, you have to pay taxes. So, if you don't pay taxes, you are a traitor? Seems curious that Biden would make that statement about people who are just scraping by on their social security checks.
But what is amusing about this absurd argument, is that Rep. Charlie Rangel, (D-NY) the head of the House committee that sets the tax code, has come into some problems of his own for not paying taxes. I can see every tax attorney before all of the tax courts of this great land, pleading that their clients should never have to be convicted because the code is so complex, that even the guy who writes it can't follow it.
Of course, this is just another example of the arrogance of power. But it's okay. They're Democrats. They mean only the best for us.

Democratic War Room

Caution: Don't watch this with the sound on if you speak German. It's too distracting.

Has Obama been driven back from Stalingrad already?

It's the End of the World as We Know It.

Let's face it, this was supposed to be the Year of the Democrat. After eight years of endless abuse by the media, um, excuse me, eight years of Bush, the American public is ready for change. Democrats just knew that this was their time, and they had a post racial candidate to atone for all of the sins of America. When he was coronated, he declared that now "was the day that the oceans stopped their rising." Of course, he didn't say how, since that will be something that he will address as soon as he is elected. But in the meantime, trust him, that with all of this goodwill and heartfelt desire for change, it is inevitable.
Except, something happened.
There has been a detour on the way to the annunciation of "The One." So, what happened? What is this force that has seemed to thwart the inevitable?
Answer: Sarah Palin.
Actually, that is an incomplete answer. By herself, Sarah Palin would probably not have been enough. Instead, it took the active collusion of the Main Stream Media in their absolutely ignorant attacks on a "hockey mom" who also happens to be a governor. Throw in the ridiculous accusation that the "Everymom" may be a pervert, and you have no reason to doubt that the media that have always supported their Democratic choice, have collectively lost their minds. But you need to add to the equation, that Barak Obama and his campaign are being run by egotistical idiots. He has decided to pursue a fifty state strategy even though he does not have the resources to do just that. When you look at the most ineptly run campaign in history, you have to wonder what his administration would look like.
It is amazing to me that our system for selecting presidential candidates is so perfectly flawed. We do not actually pick the best person for the job, instead we pick the popular fraud of the moment.
It should not come as any surprise, that panic has set in in the Democratic Party. Of course, this is not to minimize the imperfect vessel that the Democrats have actually managed to select. I am really coming to believe that the Democrats do not want to win the Presidency this year.
Think about it, if Obama wins, there will be high expectations to turn rhetoric into reality. On the other hand, if McCain wins, the Democrats can continue to blame a Republican for all the ills that exist throughout the land.
Plus, for the local Montana bloggers of the Left, it will be exactly what they want, even if they don't say so. Wulfgar, the Lesser Pissant, will continue his junior high school level of correspondence, even though his level of reading comprehension remains even lower than that. Mark T. on the other hand, will seek solace that the Republicans have stolen another election, and Barak could never win because of all of the incipient Republican racism.
So, the end result is that McCain will win, the Democrats will control the Legislature, the Sinestra will always have an enemy to rail against, and they will not be held responsible. At the same time, we will avoid the increasing assault on personal liberty of socialism represented by an Obama administration.
So, it is a good thing for everyone that Obama loses in November.

Can We not Agree?

Pete Hegseth at The Corner has this piece which explains a resolution to be brought before the Senate. The letter requesting support for the Resolution is reprinted in its entirety here:
United States Senate

September 9,2008

Dear Colleague:

We invite you to join us in cosponsoring Senate Resolution 636, a bipartisan resolution that recognizes the strategic success achieved by the surge in Iraq and expresses our gratitude to the brave men and women in uniform who made that success possible.

As you know, the war in Iraq has been deeply divisive for our country. The Senate spent much of last year locked in intensive debate about the wisdom of the new strategy that General David Petraeus was pursuing in Iraq and the deployment of approximately 30,000 additional U.S. Army and Marine Corps servicemembers in support of it.

In fact, it was just one year ago this month that General Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker returned to Washington to report on the progress of the surge. At the time, many Americans still doubted whether the surge was working.

Today, by contrast, it is beyond dispute that the surge has been an extraordinary strategic success for our country, an operation that is certain to be studied and praised for decades to come in the annals of American military history.

Although the war in Iraq is not yet over, virtually every indicator of progress-political, economic, and military-has dramatically improved since General Petraeus took command in February 2007 and the surge began.

Large-scale sectarian violence has effectively ended. Al Qaeda in Iraq-which our intelligence community last year characterized as "the most visible and capable affiliate" of al Qaeda's global terrorist network and "the only one known to have expressed a desire to attack the Homeland"- has been dealt a near strategic defeat, in the words of CIA director Gen. Michael Hayden. The Iranian-backed militias that once controlled large swaths of the country have been routed. And as our enemies have retreated, American casualties have likewise plunged.

These represent more than mere "tactical" gains. Because of the surge, the United States has been saved from a strategic defeat in the heart of the Middle East that would have carried catastrophic consequences for our country, and our allies, far beyond the borders of Iraq. Indeed, because of the success of the surge, America's strategic position in the Middle East and the world is stronger; our most dangerous enemies- al Qaeda and Iran are weaker; and our country is safer.

General Petraeus is expected to hand over command of coalition forces in Iraq on Tuesday, September 16. After months of divisive debate, we hope that members of both parties can set aside whatever disagreements have divided us over Iraq in the past, and join together now to acknowledge what we all know to be true: that the surge has been a strategic success; that we owe our deepest gratitude as a nation to the courageous men and women in uniform who fought so valiantly to achieve that success; and that their
struggle and sacrifice must not be squandered.

We hope that you will join us as a cosponsor of Senate Resolution 636 to send a bipartisan message of national unity that we salute our heroic troops for their extraordinary achievement.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Vance Serchuk in Senator Lieberman's office or Jen Olson in Senator Graham's office.

Best regards,

Joe Lieberman, United States Senator
Lindsey O. Graham, United States Senator

I will be interested to learn how our two senators decide to vote.

Just What You Always Knew

Mike at the Last Best Place has a certain reassurance for Republicans in the face of Ron Paul being the Constitutionalist Party candidate and the hype surrounding Obama's numerous field offices, but it seems that Montana is returning to its roots of being solidly conservative. I think that the difference between this election year and two years ago is the effectiveness of the Democratic noise machine. It worked much more effectively then, resulting in the near election of Sen. Tester, who couldn't have done it without his best friend, the Gov. B.S.
Combine the change in the most recent polls with "The One's" difficulty in maintaining a steady flow of cash on hand, and all those field offices might start going dark early here in Montana. Anyone want to bet that they won't survive until we change off of Daylight Savings? That money would be put to better use elsewhere, along with the staffers, those sweet young innocent naifs who actually believe in him because they don't know any better.
Of course, I suppose that this means we still won't see McCain.

The Blind Men and the Elephant

When I was a little kid, we didn't have culturally sensitive books, but I do remember one that had a story about blind men trying to figure out what an elephant was simply by feel. The one who held the tail thought that it was a rope. The one at the legs thought it to be a tree, and the one at the trunk thought it to be some kind of giant snake.
The reason that I bring this up, is that the adage "while victory has a thousand fathers, defeat is an orphan" needs to be updated at least in regards to the Surge. Apparently, the Democrats who were calling for our defeat and had adopted it as part of their campaign against Bush, are now confronted with reality, and they don't like it. Obama had originally said that the Surge couldn't work, but now has backpedalled to say that it did work beyond people's "wildest dreams." But that the Surge was only successful because of the Anbar Awakening. He then backtracks again and says that the surge has failed because the Iraqis haven't met all of the goals that we have set for them. Like the blind men, Obama seems to be concentrating on the small parts and ignoring the whole.
This article is a pretty good analysis of why the Surge has succeeded. It was not just more troops, it was their method of employment that shifted everything. It allowed for the continuance of the Anbar Awakening, and at the same time provided the necessary impetus for Sadr to figure out that he was going nowhere fast if he continued his Mahdi Army operations.
It must be disappointing for the Democrats that their prized child (Defeat) is succumbing to the success of what they said could never happen.

You Can Almost Smell the Fear

The Moderate Voice Blog points out that the balance of joy in the race for President has shifted to the Republicans. I am sure that the Democrats are beginning to feel like they have seen this movie before. Like some sort of monster flick, where the alien/monster/zombie keeps coming and coming with nothing able to stop it.
This was supposed to be the Democrat's year. After eight years of the unpopular George W. Bush, and a war that was seemingly going nowhere fast, they all looked around and licked their chops and declared themselves the "Savior of their country." Hillary had the aura of inevitability, and swiftly moved to the center in advance of the general election.
The trouble is, the guy who was probably only planning on laying the groundwork for a future run, ended up being their nominee. Sort of like Forrest Gump with a Harvard Law Degree, he then began to believe his own press and became convinced that he was "The One" that we have been waiting for. This was still not a problem for the Democrats, because this was their year. Except they had two problems that they couldn't quite grasp.
First, primaries are not for real. Okay, among the committed (or should be for that matter) political hacks, every vote in a primary is important. That is why Obama could count Idaho as a victory state even though he has no chance of it in the general. Losing more primaries at the end than Hillary, he was still able to limp across the finish line and claim the nomination.
Second, the Republicans are not playing fair. By that, I mean that they are not conforming to the playbook that the Democrats drafted for them. "McCain will be Bush's third term, that the surge was a failure, at least until it succeeded beyond the imagination of even those who supported it (What the heck is that supposed to mean?) but doesn't negate that we shouldn't have been there in the first place." and that McCain has so many houses that he can't count them, and that he has voted with GWB 90% of the time. Those are the talking points that are repeatedly distributed to the believers to be repeated on every news show and shotgunned to every editor of every newspaper in the land. So far so good.
But then, McCain, who the conservative base of the Republican Party felt had been selected for them and who was not their choice, picked Sarah Palin to be his Vice President. The initial response from the Obama campaign, was that she was just a small town mayor and lacked the requisite resume to be vice president. They quickly retracted the snark, for the reason that the Presidential nominee has even less experience than she does. And then it started.
The Main Stream Media taking its cues from the Left Blogosewer started to make every kind of idiotic smear that came to their little heads. As soon as one was knocked down, two more sprang up in their place, just like sowing dragon's teeth. Some were taking odds on when McCain would have his Eagleton moment, and drop Palin from the ticket. Mostly, because in their closed little minds, they thought that conservative closed little minds would reject Palin for having less than perfect children.
But then, the everymom stood in front of the country on Wednesday of the Republican convention, and spoke, and seemed, well, entirely normal. Except that she was funny, and smart, and dinged "community organizers" for having less responsibility for results than a, you know, governor. And America, (who aren't rabid partisans) fell in love. And none fell so hard as the conservative base.
This has driven the Democrats absolutely berserk. They are responding out of anger which is just energized fear. And boy, are they energized in their fear. The New York Times which had found little of interest in any past doings of Obama, sent teams of investigative reporters throughout the breadth and depth of Alaska to dig up some dirt on the good Governor. Any dirt. And if they can't find any dirt, they make it up. And so far, none of it has stuck.
So, all of a sudden, Republicans are happy. But how can this be? the Democrats ask. All of the above talking points still remain valid until later rescinded. But still the popularity of the McCain Palin ticket grows, and now has surpassed that of "The One." When your reality is found to have been a fraud, it can be psychologically disorienting. In this case, maybe devastating. For you see, the Democrats acknowledge that they are going to have a problem with racism that even their base is causing for them. Obama will probably need to have a lead of more that 6% going into the election just to overcome the "Wilder Effect" and even that may not be enough.
It is still possible that Obama with all of his non FEC money will be able to pull off the election. But if he does, what will be his mandate? How will he govern effectively if he has just snuck across the line again? Add in the fact that the first 100 days of his administration are going to be tied up just trying to pass the spending bills that the present Congress has not done, and Obama will have raised expectations and failed to deliver on them. The ultimate "community organizer" results I suppose.
And how will he govern when everyone in America will be comparing him to the governor of Alaska and how she is doing? Knowing that they could have had her instead, and that they will in 2012 because of the strange machinations of how Republicans select their favorites to run for President, she will be the leading choice for that election. And all of this assumes he survives a challenge from Hillary.
Maybe they are right. Maybe the Democrats have real grounds to be afraid.

The Battle to Replace Leni Riefenstahl

It's apparent that our shortened attention span has resulted in all truth coming from videos. First, we have Truth Through Action who are not ashamed to point out the purpose of their agitprop is to get Obama elected.

American Centurion from on Vimeo.

Then we have the other side, who reject Truth Through Action, but use the same tools:
Part 1

Part 2

Who is right? All I know, is that Truth Through Action has obvious misstatements of fact, while the second set use the words of those who now deny them.
I guess you will have to figure it out for yourself.

Why Obama won't ban guns

He doesn't have the votes in Congress.

True Dat

Watch the whole thing, it only takes two minutes, but is well worth it.


A while back, Mark T. postulated that while not all Republicans were racists, all racists were Republican. I suppose that is the willingness to suspend disbelief that keeps him in his insular world. I wonder what he would think about this article?
The fact that the ward manager and the union representative are trying to use the palliative that "He's half white" to get Democrats to line up and vote for the standard bearer of their party, should be rather unsettling.
But I am sure that Mark would just observe that they are really Republicans masquerading as Democrats. The things you have to do to keep your sanity.

UPDATE This isn't about racist Democrats this time, but the blog Concerned Democrats for McCain is pretty interesting. It' written by a guy that has the ultimate in Dem cred, and he rejects TeamObama. Give a read, I'll be adding their link on the right.

The Answer to the Question

Right before Memorial Day, Mark T. asked what I am sure is an honest question for him, why is it that we honor those who serve in the military? I know that in his mind, wearing the uniform of our country is tantamount to an admission of war crimes. But during McCain's speech tonight, he said this:
I was in solitary confinement when my captors offered to release me. I knew why. If I went home, they would use it as propaganda to demoralize my fellow prisoners. Our Code said we could only go home in the order of our capture, and there were men who had been shot down before me. I thought about it, though. I wasn't in great shape, and I missed everything about America. But I turned it down.

A lot of prisoners had it worse than I did. I'd been mistreated before, but not as badly as others. I always liked to strut a little after I'd been roughed up to show the other guys I was tough enough to take it. But after I turned down their offer, they worked me over harder than they ever had before. For a long time. And they broke me.

When they brought me back to my cell, I was hurt and ashamed, and I didn't know how I could face my fellow prisoners. The good man in the cell next door, my friend, Bob Craner, saved me. Through taps on a wall he told me I had fought as hard as I could. No man can always stand alone. And then he told me to get back up and fight again for our country and for the men I had the honor to serve with. Because every day they fought for me.

I fell in love with my country when I was a prisoner in someone else's. I loved it not just for the many comforts of life here. I loved it for its decency; for its faith in the wisdom, justice and goodness of its people. I loved it because it was not just a place, but an idea, a cause worth fighting for. I was never the same again. I wasn't my own man anymore. I was my country's.

It is a shame, that Mark will probably never understand what that means.

Why the Panic about a Palin?

Since her announcement as McCain's running mate, there has been a steady stream of derogatory statements by our friends on the Left. The most recent being Helen Thaomas' screed. Now Helen Thomas, is like Dave Barry (unintentionally) without the humor.
When you add up all the others, Wulfgar, Mark T. and my personal favorite Left in the West you see a consistent theme. Sarah Palin is going to be the next President after McCain.
Get used to it. I know that I am looking forward to it.

The Not Ready Candidate

Much has been made by the MSM (We all sold our soul to get "The One" elected, but I got the highest price!) of Sarah Palin not having the experience to run the country if she should become President. But we have only to look at her opposite number to see what more than thirty years of being in Washington as a Senator can do to prepare for the highest office in the land. First, it was we are going to prosecute the Bush Administration for crimes, then, it was "No I never said that."
If experience in Washington means that you can lie like a rug, I don't think that we need that kind of experience.
Another small step in the proof that Obama lacks judgment by picking Biden.

Mrs. Smith Goes to Washington

Kate at Big Sky Cairn is liveblogging Palin's speech. Good job Kate!

UPDATE: Having just watched her speech, I am reminded of the contrast between her and Geraldine Ferraro. Ms. Ferraro had the disadvantage of being the absolute first, and it may have been due to the times but I thought she came off shrill. Sarah Palin on the other hand had her few moments of imperfection, but I think that she has hit this one out of the park.

Memo to President Obama


31 OCTOBER, 2010

Mr. President:


First the good news, your approval ratings have jumped dramatically in the last two weeks. You are now at 15% approval which is your highest in the last eighteen months. Primarily, this is due to your decision to stay away from all press conferences that do not use teleprompters.

As you know, the restoration of the Fairness Doctrine has enabled us to better manage the information that is coming out about the various problems of the Administration. The New York Times is continuing to work with us on getting your message out to their 86 subscribers, who are behind you 100% of the time.
Unfortunately, we are having a harder time controlling the Internet and cable television. Your initiative to impose the Fairness Doctrine on Internet bloggers and comments has not been as successful, and in fact, has backfired terribly in that bloggers are using remote servers overseas where we are not able to enforce the law. We have had the FBI pull more agents off of counterterrorism actions to confront these scofflaws, but they seem to pop up at a rate of 10:1 as soon as we arrest anyone.
Jamming continues against Rush Limbaugh’s pirate ships that are broadcasting from offshore and Mexico, but your restrictions on only using alternative energy reduce their ability to jam his signals to just a few yards from the antennae. He is continuing to ignore your message of Hope, in spite of the law mandating that everyone have hope no matter how dire their personal situation is. His audience seems to be mostly amused by his suggestion that people should hope in one hand and defecate in the other, and see which fills up faster.
Your communications director, Keith Olbermann continues to provide the press with the Administration’s message from his position as head of NBC News, but their viewers seem to overlap with that of the New York Times, and we are having a difficult time with the other 310 million voters.
Senator Clinton continues her investigations of your Administration in her role as Chairman of the Senate and does not seem to be slowing down. She is now investigating if her proposed nomination to the Supreme Court is just an effort by you to derail her investigations and her already underway campaign to replace you in 2012. We have our operatives working on the matter, but they are unable to get through the barricade of women voters who are now saying “We told you so!”
The financial markets continue to plummet as your phased in increases of the capital gains tax are set for all gains after January 1st of 2003. The Supreme Court has upheld the retroactivity of the tax in this case thanks to your appointment of Barbara Streisand who has tipped the balance of power there. It seems most of the Justices would rather kill themselves than have to deal with her legal reasoning, thereby resulting in the recent spate of 1-0 rulings from the Court. Not to mention the pictures we have of Justice Kennedy with that sheep that he is not married to. We have instructed the Senate Banking and Finance chairs to begin investigation of market manipulations, but to be truthful, we could only leave a message on their answering machines since they refuse to take our calls.

Internationally, our emissaries continue to seek out anyone from the former terrorist group Al Qaeda to apologize for putting Boston in the path of their nuclear weapon. We are also having trouble with Russia, in that Tzar Putin is rejecting our message of hope and understanding. It seems he may be trying to mislead us as he continues mop up operations against Ukraine and the Baltic states. We have been assured that any images showing the destruction of the cities in those countries are just photoshopped and not really indicative of what is happening on the ground.
Europe continues to reject your offers to mediate their desire to surrender to Tsar Putin, and this has been disappointing. It is our analysis that the Tsar may have bitten off more than he can chew as it seems that Al Qaeda appears to have declared war on the Russians as the infidels, thereby reducing any threats to our nation, except for San Francisco, which our scientists estimate will be able to be reoccupied in about 250 years if the anthrax eradication continues on schedule. Al Qaeda operations have continued against the Russian occupied cities of Prague, Vienna and Rome. We are having a difficult time getting reliable information from those areas due to the residual high levels of radioactivity. Our scientists continue to investigate if that radioactivity can be used as an alternative source of energy since it is in such abundant supply at the moment.
There is good news though in Korea, where Kim Jong Il has declared peace after the successful elimination of all resistance in Seoul. With the surrender of the Republic of Korea, our emissaries are now negotiating with those of the People’s Republic so that you can have a face to face meeting with the Beloved Leader and negotiate his use of the trademarked word “Change” in violation of international intellectual property rights laws.

Politically, we have not seen the benefits of a filibuster proof majority in the Senate. It seems that every Democratic Senator has decided that if you could become President, that they are all immensely more qualified than you and are also running for President. All except for Senator Schumer who seems to be running for the position of God. He believes that is his appropriate pay grade, since no one else has it.

Your staff wants you to know that we will continue to promote your message of Hope and Change as the solution to all of the Nation’s problems. However, if you could, a few specifics would be greatly helpful. Not that we doubt your sincerity that Hope and Change will work, but we lack your intellectual firepower to figure out how to implement it.

In summary, we are eagerly awaiting the November elections where it is expected that the Republicans will retake majorities in both houses of Congress. At that time we will implement your proposed strategy of blaming them for everything once again.

The future never looked brighter Sir.

Digging Furiously

Newsbusters has taken to task the Post Chronicle for a "news item" that related to a Google search for sarah palin trailer trash. The editors of the offensive article posted a reply to the Newsbuster's post. If you go to the Editors (sic) Note portion of the article and take a read, you will find this:
It would seem the good folks at took it upon themselves to chastise us as if we subscribed to the point of view published above. The author had added some clarity and while the nature of the topic might be construde as bad taste, it does not reflect any opinion one way or the other. We take issue with Blumer's assertion that the story was simply "made-up."

Construde? Is that a rude form of construction?
Good thing that the big guys in news gathering have editors.

What is that Annoying Buzzing?

While Republicans are putting their convention on hold and turning it instead into a fund raiser for Gustav relief, Obama has been doing his part as well. His campaign called my wife (The Good Democrat) and asked her to text a number to send $5 to the Red Cross for hurricane relief. Good on both of them. They should not allow the calendar to preclude doing the right thing.
But, then there's that annoying mosquito of a politician, Joe Biden.
This morning, Joe Biden said today was not a day for national politics. He said it again during a roundtable discussion outside his childhood home here this afternoon. But before long, he couldn’t help himself, criticizing McCain for his views on offshore drilling and questioning his foreign policy judgment.

“The only guy in America in a position of some authority who is out of sync with the whole rest of the world is John McCain,” he told a small group of relatives and old family friends. “This Administration, the Iraqis, NATO, the Europeans, our friends around the world, the vast majority of the American people, the Democratic-controlled Congress, Republicans in Congress -- they all agree. Barack Obama was right, and John McCain was wrong.”
Way to draw blood mosquito Joe!
Apparently, Sen. Biden was referring to a timeline for withdrawl from Iraq. Now, Biden will provide far more entertainment than I think the Obama campaign realized when he was picked. But the good Sen. from the state that has the same number of electoral votes as ours, is basically unable to help himself.
It is only too easy to point out that Obama wanted an immediate timeline for withdrawl and opposed the Surge. If we had followed his wise counsel, the Anbar Awakening would have been snuffed out by those snuff artists of Al Qaeda.
I am not sure if Sen. Biden is being deliberately ignorant, or willing to lie as to any measure that will help him move from the Senate to the President of the Senate.
But every time that I see him, I realize that I like Sarah Palin even more.
