If Barack Obama wins the presidency in november, and the Democrats maintain control of both houses of Congress, there will be a massive ideological shift in government. Not just Democrats, but LIBERAL Democrats, will run the whole show. This hasn't been seen since the days of FDR or LBJ, who gave us the New Deal and Great Society policies, respectively. I suggest that Obama come up with a name for his policies, like FDR and LBJ did. Since The One hasn't done that yet, I have some suggestions of my own. I think BO should call his economic scheme AMERICA - THE NEW FRANCE, or maybe SOCIALISM FOR DUMMIES. How about a THOUSAND POINTS OF LEFT ?
Obama's pet media has descended upon poor Joe the plumber like a pack of snarling wolves, and have torn through his personal life. Just like they did to Sarah Palin. Does this say anything about what an Obama presidency would be like ? Will the media help to silence Obama critics by mischaracterizing or exaggerating their words, as they have during this campaign ? Will they cover up and/or ignore Obama's mistakes, as they have during this campaign ? John McCain had it right when he said, “Americans ought to be able to ask Senator Obama tough questions without being smeared and targeted with political attacks.” Yes, they certainly should, but that isn't the world we live in. The media thinks it's job is to discredit anybody who criticizes their hero.
Speaking of the media trying to discredit people, remember the left wing rage the media generated when they reported that a member of the crowd at a Palin campaign stop allegedly yelled out "kill him", which was allegedly directed toward Obama ? That led lots of Democrats to make allegations of racism toward the GOP. Obama even brought it up in the last presidential debate. It was supremely stupid to color McCain, Palin, and the GOP as racist due to a couple random shout-outs from the crowd in the first place, but as it turns out, the original charge isn't even true. Nobody at the Palin rally yelled out "kill him." The Secret Service reviewed the tapes, and concluded what was shouted out at one rally was "tell him", not "kill him", and at another rally the Secret Service said no comment anything like "kill him" was made (link). I can't wait for all the forthcoming apologies from the media, Democrats, and Obama. Not that they will ever come.
In my last post, I contended that McCain won the third presidential debate decisively. Two new polls came out yesterday. An AP poll had it Obama 44, McCain 42. A Gallup poll of registered voters had it Obama 46, McCain 44. Other polls have Obama further ahead, but they weren't done after the debate. The new polls show McCain closing the gap. Sounds like McCain got a debate bump to me. You don't do that by losing.
The unintentionally hilarious Democratic VP candidate, Joe Biden, appeared on the NBC Today Show, talking about Joe the plumber. Biden said "I don't know any Joe the plumbers in my neighborhood who make over $250,000. The Joe the plumbers in my neighborhood, the Joe the cops in my neighborhood, the Joe the grocery store owners in my neighborhood...they make less than $250,000 a year."
FYI - Joe Biden lives on a $3 million compound. There AREN'T any plumbers, cops, or small grocery store owners living in Biden's neighborhood.
Bonus Biden quote: "Look, John's last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number-one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs."
I'm no Einstein, but doesn't "JOBS" have four letters ?
From the 'Boundless Ego' files - Can you BELIEVE that Barack Obama complained that he'd be 2-3 points higher in the polls were it not for FoxNews ? RIIIIIIIGHT. Like Obama doesn't have ENOUGH of a media advantage already. As Newsbuster's publisher Brent Bozell rebutted, "Okay, Sen. Obama, we will cede you the point that the Fox News Channel, by accurately portraying you and your record, has brought you down 2-3% in the polls. Now it's time for you to concede that were it not for NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, Time, Newsweek, the New York Times, the Washington Post, USA Today, the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, etc., etc., etc. Sen. John McCain would be up by 20%."
If Obama wins, maybe he will amend the Fairness Doctrine to outlaw FoxNews so he won't have to be bothered with ANY media opposition for his re-election campaign.
