VIDEO: THIS MAN CAN’T WIN IN NOVEMBER

John McCain has endorsed Mitt Romney? Just more evidence that we should never have nominateed the former last time around. Look at this ad McCain ran against Romney in 2008. How in the world did he suddenly reach the conclusion that such a brazen flip-flopper, complete with RomneyCare boondoggle, can possibly beat Obama in November?! [ht Sister Toldjah]

PALIN-SABOTEUR NICOLLE WALLACE TO WRITE “NOVEL” ABOUT FIRST WOMAN PRESIDENT

Well, it doesn’t require Nostradamian prescience to predict the gist of any upcoming book from this former Palin aide: Nicolle Wallace, the former White House communications director who famously clashed with Sarah Palin while working as a senior adviser to the McCain-Palin campaign, has signed on to write a novel that ‘follows the first female President of [...]

MORE PALIN-BASHING IN NEW BOOK … YAWN

John Heilemann and Mark Halperin have written a book, Game Change, about the 2008 presidential race and (surprise!) it contains a variety of shopworn cheap shots aimed at Sarah Palin by the losers who drove the McCain campaign off a cliff: In the days leading up to an interview with ABC News’ Charlie Gibson, aides were worried with Ms. Palin’s [...]

INSIDE STRAIGHT: MCCAIN 273, OBAMA 265

OK, here’s the inside straight that can make John McCain the president elect by the time we wake up on Wednesday morning. This scenario allows McCain to give up three Bush states, while requiring him to pick only one Kerry state. I “borrowed” this map from Nate Silver, a confirmed Obamaton who thinks this outcome is very unlikely but [...]

MAGGIE MAHAR JOINS THE FEAR MONGERS

Last week, I wrote an article for AmSpec in which I outlined how the ostensible candidate of “change” has reverted to the hoary Democrat practice of frightening elderly voters into casting their ballots for the Democrat presidential ticket. Among the most disingenuous of Obama’s scare tactics is the accusation that John McCain plans to cut Medicare benefits. This particular charge is so dishonest that [...]

OBAMA’S LATEST HEALTH CARE LIE

Not satisfied with his egregious misrepresentation of John McCain’s Medicare proposal, Barack Obama has deployed another whopper about how McCain’s health care tax credit would compare to employer-based insurance: This morning, we were offered a stunning bit of straight talk – an October surprise – from [McCain's] top economic advisor, who actually said that the [...]

THE FEAR WE NEED

Barack Obama, the ostensible candidate of “change,” is using the usual Democrat scare tactics to round up votes for his ticket. To that end, he has been lying through his teeth about McCain’s health care policies. My latest article for AmSpec fleshes out the details: The Democrat standard bearer has expanded the usual narrative of Republican perfidy to [...]

OBAMA’S MEDICARE WHOPPER

Barack Obama has added another whopper to the growing list of lies he tells about John McCain’s health care plans. He has now begun accusing McCain of wanting to cut Medicare benefits: Senator McCain would pay for part of his plan by making drastic cuts in Medicare -$882 billion worth. Thus, the candidate of “change” reverts to the [...]

DEAR MEDIATARDS, PLEASE ATTACK JOE

Dear MSM,  Last month, your mean-spirited and mendacious coverage of Sarah Palin energized conservatives and put the McCain-Palin ticket back in the race. We conservatives are deeply grateful for your assistance on that project, but we need your help one more time. If you would be kind enough to attack Joe the Plumber,  it would be [...]

SENATOR GOVERNMENT REPEATS “20 MILLION” LIE

It’s clear that the Obama campaign believes it has found an effective scare tactic in its claim that John McCain wants to take away everyone’s employer-based health insurance. We heard it from Joe Biden in the VP debate: You’re going to have to pay—replace a $12,000 plan, because 20 million of you are going to be dropped. And [...]
