Obama's "Judgamunt"

Obama likes to brag about his superior judgment (spelling above refers to how Slow Joe Biden pronounces the word).

Biden just claimed the Prez should go on TV and splain the Bailout crisis to the American people. Biden said FDR did just that when Wall Street crashed in 1929. Of course, Hoover was president then and TV was not yet invented.

Funnier folks said FDR did do that and if you were lucky enough to be watching on your experimental TV, you asked "Hey who is this guy and what happened to Hoover"?

I have said this before. The VP choice was Obama's 1st big important decision and Obama made a very poor choice.

AIG Bailout

It looks like the taxpayers will bailout some banks and AIG for about a trillion dollars. I say give stock in these companies to every man, woman and child in the country.

Screw the government - the people are putting up the money and the people should get the stock certificates. Make sense to me. What do you think?

Dave McLimans

Here is a quote from a New York Times story. The reporter caught up with this guy at a rally for Joe Biden in Media, PA.

“People got to wake up, because these guys in Washington are raping this country,” said Dave McLimans, a steelworker from Coatesville, Pa., who attended the rally in Media. “Joe Biden talks in a way that can wake people up.”

Sounds innocent enough right? Sounds like a regular working class guy maybe even an independent. Well when I do the googles on the name Dave McLimans, I learn he may be a steelworker but he is also a union official and is president of the Chester County Labor Council and has given money to Dems in the past.

Should the NY Times reporter have known that and included it in his story? Does the reporter even know Google exists?

Here is the googles proof; scroll down, McLiman's name is the third name in the Chester county section.

Immigration Proposal

I wish our elected officials could think as clearly and argue their positions as logically and forcefully as Rush Limbaugh. He will be recognized one day as a national treasure.

The Other McCain (the blog)

I am a big fan of government waste. Pointing out govt waste I should say. Click on the link to read a good blog and what he said about govt salaries in Daytona Beach.

It's hard to argue with it. Many govt employees are paid way too much and their benefit and pensions are way too generous. Has to stop because there is a looming financial crisis in state and loacl pension funds- they are underfunded!

Susan P. Michaelson says Ed Rendell Is Full Of Soup

The Philly Inquirer is almost a wholly owned P.R. firm for the Democratic party and especially Governor Fat Eddie Rendell. Surprisingly, it printed a "letter to the Idiotor" that debunked one of its own front-page stories that claimed Fat Eddie made big money sellling a state plane. Below is the letter from one smart person named Susan P. Michaelson of Radnor (practically a next-door neighbor of my town).


Dear Idiotor:

The suggestion that Gov. Rendell is somehow a better plane salesperson than was Gov. Palin is nothing but hot air. Your front-page story ("Alaska, here's a tip on how to sell a plane," Tuesday) reported she netted $2.1 million for a plane that originally cost - it doesn't say when - $2.7 million. Pennsylvania will get $1.375 million minus the unreported cost for pre-sale maintenance, including a brake job, for a plane that cost "slightly more than a million" in 1992.

How about filling in some facts?

First, the sales and markets are not comparable. Alaska's plane was a 1984 10-seat Westwind II, nearly 21/2 times as expensive as Pennsylvania's 1981 seven-seat Beech King Air 200. The Westwind was an impractical vanity purchase by Palin's predecessor, Frank Murkowski, for which many suggest he overpaid. Outrage over that plane helped get Palin elected.

As any first-year Wharton MBA student can tell you, total returns are not comparable on two different purchases without taking into account a host of information you failed to address, including demand, operating and maintenance costs, and forgone expenses.

It took Palin nine months to finalize the sale for maximum return, eventually completed by a broker after numerous lesser offers were rejected. Alaska has its cash.

Rendell has been at this since April. He's taken the best of four offers, but still hasn't closed the deal.

Gov. Palin sold the plane and cut the best deal she could for the people of Alaska. Gov. Rendell is doing the same. That's all you can fairly conclude.

Susan P. Michaelson, Radnor

Inartfully Authentic Is a Big Problem

The Dems are hurting because they picked another in-authentic candidate. That is right - if I had to pick one thing that doomed Al Bore, John Kerry and now Barack Obama, it is they each lacked authenticity. They were still evolving and changing even in middle age and even worse they did it during their presidential campaigns.

The American people prefer authenticity. Like they liked Elvis who never hid the fact he liked peanut butter and banana sandwiches (disgusting IMO). George Bush likes baseball and running, McCain likes hiking, Palin runs and hunts. They are regular people and don't have to check with Naomi Wolf (taste and culture maven to the Manhattan elites) to pick their campaign wardrobe or to say what they do for fun

That is the problem for Dems - they are too serious and they are inartfully authentic.

"Meet The Press" Being Replaced by "MEET THE TAXPAYERS"

The MSM has their collective knickers twisted. Sarah Palin has not graced them with her presence and "it's been nine days since she was announced as McCain's VP choice". That is a quote from girly-boy Chris Matthews this morning.

I recommend McCain give Palin free access to a Meet The Press type confrerence but instead of MSM types, they should randomly find informed taxpayers to ask the questions. Call it "MEET THE TAXPAYERS". And no one from the Beltway is allowed. This is a great maverick move for McCain because polls show voters don't believe nor respect the MSM anyway.

The new paradigm goes around and replaces the biased dinosaur media with real no-bullshit type regular citizens to ask questions to the candidates.

Joe Biden

Joe Biden had five draft deferments just like Dick Cheney!

I wonder why the MSM has not been reporting this - have not yet seen this AP news story in my local paper, the Phila. Inquirer. Oh that's right, Biden is a Democrat.,0,2934547.story

Sarah Palin

Who is Sarah Palin? Read this great New Republic article by Christopher Orr. Here is the money quote from Orr's article. This is some excellent writing:

"Sarah Palin is a living reminder that the ultimate source of political power in this country is not the Kennedy School or the Davos Summit or an Ariana Huffington salon; even now, power emanates from the electorate itself. More precisely, power in 2008 emanates from the working class electorates of Pennsylvania and Ohio.

Sooner or later, the Obama camp will realize that the beauty pageant queen is an enormously talented populist in a year that is ripe for populism. For their own sake, it had better be sooner."

Shepherd Smith

Shepherd Smith of Foxs News is such a deutchbag. I heard him say at least three times today "this is my 28th hurricane". What a strapper he is- as if he were a brave pioneer or explorer. It is just the news you idiot and FYI hurricanes occur about 10-20 times every year.

The scene of the anchor man standing in the storm holding a microphone is now old, stale and hokey. Time to put that news production in mothballs. And fire deutchbags like Shepherd Smith!
