Rick Perry’s commercial hits the incumbent where he is most vulnerable.
I give it a solid 9.5.
While there was no televised GOP response to Pres Obama’s speech to a joint session of Congress this evening, many members have taken advantage of the power and reach of the new media to craft a different kind of response. One that, given the kickoff of the NFL season, will allow the GOP to craft a message that readers can view at a time of their own choosing.
Here is the response from Gregg Harper, MS-3:
“Our nation continues to suffer from a serious jobless problem, which is why I support a pro-business legislative agenda that removes barriers our job creators face from excessive federal regulations.
“While I agree with the president that we must get folks back to work, I do not believe that another failed stimulus is the answer.
“House Republicans have advanced a number of job-creating proposals – many of which have passed with bipartisan support – that remain stalled in the Democratic-controlled Senate. I urge the president to support these initiatives which promote private sector growth, decrease job-crushing regulations and boost American-made energy production.”
“The bottom line is this is bad,” Diane Swonk, chief economist with financial services firm Mesirow Financial, told CNBC Friday.
Kind of adds a whole new dimension to the nick-name “zerobama”, doesn’t it?
I was reading an article over at Politico a few days ago which talked about obama’s appeal to church-going Christians. Or, should I say, his lack of appeal to church-going Christians.
In spite of all that has been written and talked about the obama outreach effort to evangelical voters, only 28% if this large demographic group is planning to vote for obama. In fact, that number is slightly less than John Kerry received 4 years ago. How significant is this? The evangelical vote is about one third of the electorate. This is good news for John McCain.
Should anyone be surprised? I really don’t think so.
The obama campaign is offensive to Christians on many levels. Certainly the Right to Life is a large part of that. Even more so, I think, is the messiah-like worship that obama’s supporters have given to him. 0bama himself has done nothing at all to discourage them, and actually seems to revel in it.
It is the type of behavior that leaves a large portion of the evangelical right wondering if we are seeing the rise of the antichrist.
I don’t use those words easily, and just seeing them on screen gives me pause.
He can still be defeated.
This year, more than ever, it is up to the Christians.

Yesterday, I wrote a short post about Obama’s aunt who was revealed to be living in a housing project in Boston…
… if this were John McCain’s or Sarah Palin’s aunt, do you think we would be reading about it in a British newspaper, only days before the election?
Somehow, I get the feeling that MSNBC snd CNN would have run weeks worth of in depth interviews. But, since it really doesn’t reflect well on Obama, it just gets ignored.
I suppose being embarrassed by the British press was enough to get the AP moving….
Barack Obama’s aunt, a Kenyan woman who has been quietly living in public housing in Boston, is in the United States illegally after an immigration judge rejected her request for asylum four years ago, The Associated Press has learned.
Imagine that. Heh™ .
Time to throw auntie under Obama’s bus

The last line of the AP article was interesting … “It was not immediately clear how Onyango might have qualified for public housing with a standing deportation order.”
Dang. I’m going to have to think hard about that one. BWAHAHAAAA

Yesterday, readers of our blog were witness to the birth of viral meme.
An 0bama troll dropped by our post on the LA Times video suppression, and informed us that the Obama-Khalidi association really wasn’t any big deal. Otherwise, why would John McCain have given over $400,000 to a Palestinian group that Khalidi worked with?
I googled his cut-and-paste comment and discovered that the exact same phrase had been already been posted to the internet over 500 times.
That same verbatim phrase now has been posted over 18,000 times!
Obviously the O-bots think it’s working.
The problem is, it is only a distraction, designed to produce an illusion.
Aaron Klein, writing at WND, shines the light of truth on the 0bama cover story.
It’s true that McCain distributed several grants, including one worth about half a million dollars, to the Center for Palestine Research and Studies, or CPRS, a West Bank organization associated with Khalidi.
What the 0-bots fail to mention is that CPRS is pro-Western and can be characterized as pro-Israel.
Its work has been condemned by the Palestinian leadership and by local terror groups as “Zionist propaganda.”
In contrast, the Khalidi organization Obama helped fund as a board member for a nonprofit, alongside domestic terrorist William Ayers, has taken a flagrantly anti-Israel line. Khalidi’s Arab American Action Network has hosted scores of Israel-bashing events, including at least one reportedly attended by Obama.
The Obama-Khalidi connection is one more straw. Is it the one that finally breaks the donkey’s back?
