Clinton - Obama - Edwards Round Up --UPDATED-- First there's Clinton on all three morning shows today. That's where Matt Lauer surprised Clinton with the Rezko picture, which was taken during Bill Clinton's presidency.

Obama, Rezko and One Photo of the Clintons

By |January 25th, 2008|

NBC evidently showed an undated and unsourced photo today of Rezko and the Clintons. One photo? The truth is that Rezko has never given one dime to Hillary or Clinton. If you want to talk Clinton fundraisers, it's not like any of them launched Hillary Clinton's political career, going back seventeen years to the beginning, [...]

American First, Democrat Second

By |January 24th, 2008|

I have to ask people attacking Bill Clinton, which has become the cool thing to do everywhere, if his politics is "old" why has Barack Obama and his campaign been engaged in the same type of politics since the beginning (from June 2007, D-Punjab, or Obama's false charge that Bill Clinton made money on 9/11). [...]

"Never get into a wrestling match with a pig. You both get dirty, and the pig likes it." - John McCain on Mitt Romney Rudy sucks. The longer he's in Florida the faster his polls numbers drop. Hey, but I wouldn't count him out. McCain wants to show Slick Mitt as a flip flopper. If [...]

Obama Uses National Security to Damage Democratic Brand

By |January 24th, 2008|

In an interview, Barack Obama went out of his way to impugn the national security bona fides of a fellow Democrat. Presidential politics aside, this is scorched earth politics. It's also the most dangerous kind of ploy to play against one of our own. Obama obviously thinks he's playing a game, instead of launching a [...]

Mr. Hope Plays Divider

By |January 23rd, 2008|

My big brother always told me that you can tell more about a person after a defeat. Obama has lost New Hampshire, Michigan, then Nevada. One thing is clear. This guy is bitter. From the Christian Broadcasting Network interview shown on Keith Olbermann's "Countdown" tonight: Brody: Will Hillary be a drag for down-ticket races as [...]
