The latest ABC News/Washington Post poll is not even close. John McCain beats Obama 72% to 48%


So, what has happened?

Iraq War success and American voters recognize that John McCain was RIGHT about the war all along.

America will NOT support surrender in Iraq. Obama’s flip-flop on his Iraq War position is validation of this – even Obama recognizes the anti-war left has an untenable position.

As Iraq War success increases so will John McCain in the polls.

Iran President Ahmadinejad to Visit New York for United Nations General Assembly

Posted on


Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is reportedly planning to visit New York again this Fall for the United Nations General Assembly meeting.

Remember last year’s visit?

Iran and the Mullahs who pull President Ahmadinejad’s strings just love to screw with the United States -especially at Presidential election time.

Flap wonders if Barack Obama will agree to meet with Ahamdinejad – you know without preconditions?


Presidential Race All Tied Up

McCain and Obama

Senators and presumptive Presidential nominees John McCain and Barack Obama

Flap knows it is early in the Presidential race but John McCain is showing surprising strength in national polling – particularly in a down GOP year.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll shows Barack Obama attracting 44% of the vote while John McCain earns 42%. The candidates had been tied at 43% for the past two days.

When “leaners” are included, it’s Obama 47% and McCain 46%. For most of the past month-and-a-half, Obama has led McCain by approximately five percentage points (see recent daily results). Tracking Polls are released at 9:30 a.m. Eastern Time each day (see recent demographic highlights). McCain’s improvement in the polls comes as more Americans believe it is possible for the U.S. to win the war in Iraq.

Obama’s bounce after defeating Hillary Clinton a few weeks ago appears to be finished. And, Obama’s flip-flop on the Iraq War, coupled with American success there, appears to validate John McCain’s strength of character, resolve and political judgment.


Looking at the Electoral College Maps Obama continues to enjoy an advantage:
