Credit Where Credit Is Due

Democrats deserve all the credit… Even Bill Clinton says so.


John McCain said today that he has realized that the legislation as proposed by Hank Paulson does not appear to be able to pass congress. He’s calling on the President, Democrats, Republicans, to all come together and and work on legislation that they can actually pass.

He has called on Obama to likewise suspend his campaign, he’s called on the commission on Presidential debates to postpone Friday’s debate.

He says that this is a national crisis and it needs to be dealt with in a bipartisan manner. After 9/11 Republicans and Democrats came together for the good of the country and they need to do so again.

Just a quick note about something he said in his opening remarks. If he says anything else of note while being broadcast, I’ll note that too…

He’s thanking people…

…Your own governor, one of the best governors in the country, Jim Doyle. And two of my favorite colleagues in the United States Senate, United States Senator Herb Kohl, and and one of the strongest champions of ethics reform and finance reform and good government that we have in government today, please give it up for United States Senator Russ Feingold.

Oh my. Isn’t the finance reform bill commonly known as McCain-Feingold?

Public Financing

On with Shep Smith this afternoon, Mary Ann Marsh said (paraphrased):

Barack Obama is taking private donations from people. John McCain is using taxpayer dollars.


because Obama’s taking “private donations” some as small as $100 from real people

Obama = Good.

and because McCain is taking the public financing that every presidential candidate in the past except for Obama has taken

McCain = Bad

Obama is the first presidential candidate to decline public financing.

His fundraising isn’t working as well as predicted.

I think he’ll be the last presidential candidate to decline public financing.

Thirty Years

That’s the number bandied about by the Obama camp and surrogates trying to say that McCain’s been in Washington that long so he doesn’t represent a change.

Joe Biden’s been in the senate for 36 years.

Isn’t 36 longer than 30?

Dear Mr. Obama

This video was made by the son of one of our local County Republican Committee Chairs, returned from Iraq.

Watch as he walks away.

Obama’s spokesman Bill Burton put this out this morning (via Huffington Post):

Today, John McCain put the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency.

Excuse me?

Obama chose Biden for his foreign policy experience because Obama himself has none. Obama almost had to pick a VP with foreign policy experience.

McCain doesn’t need to pick a VP with foreign policy experience, he has enough of his own thank you very much.

Governor Palin as Governor and as a former mayor has more executive experience than any of the other three…


For more on what Governor Palin brings to the table see Beldar’s post that links to all the posts he’s written on Governor Palin over the past months.

It's Sarah!

Fox News confirms with the McCain Campaign that the VP pick is indeed Alaska Governor Sarah Palin!


Added: Happy Birthday Senator McCain!

Happy 20th Anniversary Todd and Sarah Palin!
