Michael Ramirez on Barack Obama’s trip to the Middle East and Europe

John McCain today in Denver, Colorado rejected Barack Obama’s “AUDACITY OF HOPELESSNESS” for Iraq.

McCain is RIGHT but the war is unpopular and Americans after five years in the Middle East are fatigued with war. Flap doubts that anyone is listening to Obama or McCain at this point about the Iraq War or care one iota about the war on terror in Afghanistan.

Run of the mill voters are more concerned about the economy (meaning their jobs) and the price of gas.

John Edwards

Why is the Media in the Tank for John Edwards?

Posted on

Mickey Kaus answers the question besides the obvious answer of bias and illustrates the “double standard” especially at the Los Angeles Times which has instructed its bloggers to not write about the story.

In the meantime, John Edwards has NO comment and Fox News has interviewed the Beverly Hills security guard who intervened between John Edwards and the National Enquirer reporters.

Flap is waiting for the photos from the National Enquirer.

You know they are going to drop soon.

Will John Edwards continue to “stonewall” the flap or will he check himself into rehab?


Is John Edwards a Public Hypocrite?

Rudy Giuliani Watch: On The Comeback Trail in New York

Rudy is on the way back into the political arena. A New York Governor Giuliani would certainly help re-establish and re-invigorate a national GOP brand.

Too, Giuliani is expected to spend some time on the trail raising cash for Congressional candidates. He met Thursday with Reps. Kevin McCarthy, Paul Ryan and Eric Cantor, three young Republicans who have started what they call the Young Guns program to target vulnerable Democrats, and Comella said Giuliani was finalizing plans for fundraisers with a number of other Republicans around the country. “Rudy’s gotten a lot of requests on the Congressional side,” she said. “It’s going to be a bit of a balancing act in terms of best using his time.”

Rudy recognizes the need to support young GOP candidates for the future of the party. He always has and is a good “party man” in the fundraising department.

Post Bush the GOP should especially welcome Rudy back into the arena.
