Obama Helps McCain Become Natural Born

From the Washington Post:

U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) hand wrote her legislative fix on a yellow legal pad, which she delivered to the Senate clerk, to ensure that any persons born to U.S. citizens serving in the Armed Services while stationed abroad qualify to become president of the United States.

Obama Backs Law Helping McCain

By Shailagh Murray

FT. WORTH, Texas — Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign announced he would co-sponsor legislation introduced yesterday by his political ally Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill to ensure that John McCain can become president, even though he was born in the Panama Canal Zone.

The issue of McCain’s eligibility was raised in a New York Times article noting the constitutional requirement that a U.S. president be a “natural-born citizen” had never been fully defined.



Obama Pushing Harder For Homosexuals

One under-reported aspect of the Democrat primary campaign has been the candidates’ relentless wooing of the homosexual vote.

According to reports in pro-homosexual media outlets, Mr. Obama has recently ratcheted up his efforts, with aggressive ad buys and press releases.

He is now placing this “generic” LGBT ad in homosexual newspapers in Ohio and Texas:


The following is Mr. Obama’s latest missive to the homosexual community. (Weirdly it does not seem to be available anywhere on his campaign website, but several homosexual outlets have it in pdf format):

Open Letter From Barack Obama To The LGBT Community

I’m running for President to build an America that lives up to our founding promise of equality for all – a promise that extends to our gay brothers and sisters.

We hear you, Lyndon Hillary.

The Obama campaign has responded, via his minions at the New York Times:

Obama Responds to Phone Ad

By Jeff Zeleny

February 29, 2008

HOUSTON – It is, Senator Barack Obama says, “a legitimate question.”

“Who do you want answering the phone in the White House when it’s 3 a.m. and something has happened in the world?”

In a conversation with military veterans here, Mr. Obama responded to the television advertisement that is the talk of today’s political water cooler: Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s new commercial stressing her credentials on national security.



Michelle Obama: ‘Hussein’ Is A Fear Bomb

From an outraged (at the Islamophobes) Chicago Tribune:

Michelle Obama campaigning in Chillicothe, Ohio for her husband, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., Thursday Feb. 28, 2008.

Michelle Obama: name Hussein is ‘the fear bomb’

by Mark Silva

Michelle Obama, who often has decried “the fear bomb” that opponents have used against her husband for his middle name — Barack Hussein Obama — said in Canton, Ohio, today that it is happening again and shows why it’s so important that he wins election as president.

They threw in the obvious, ultimate fear bomb,” Obama said today of her husband’s 2004 Senate race. “We’re even hearing [that] now. … ‘When all else fails, be afraid of his name, and what that could stand for, because it’s different.'”

The senator’s wife said that rivals use innuendo to play on fears.



Kenyan Muslims Angry Over Obama Photo

From the inimitable New York Post:


By GEOFF EARLE Post Correspondent

February 29, 2008 — WASHINGTON – Angry tribal elders in Kenya are calling on Hillary Rodham Clinton to “clear her name” over any involvement in publication of photos of Barack Obama wearing a turban and African garb on a trip to his ancestral homeland.

The leaders are planning a protest in their community today, and are turning up the heat on the US government over the incident.

The photos appeared nationwide after they were published earlier this week on the Drudge Report Web site with a report that they had been circulated by Clinton staffers.

Obama aides blasted the Clinton campaign for “shameful, offensive fear-mongering.”

The pictures show Obama wearing traditional Somalian garb on a 2006 visit to the Wajir region of Kenya, where his late father was born.



‘Hill-Raiser’ Hsu Pleads Not Guilty, Poverty

From the DNC’s Associated Press:

NY: Dem fundraiser Norman Hsu pleads poverty — and not guilty

Thu, Feb. 28, 2008

NEW YORK — Top Democratic fundraiser Norman Hsu will rely on a court-appointed lawyer to defend him against charges that he cheated investors out of millions of dollars and made illegal donations to politicians, including presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Theodore H. Katz appointed Hugh M. Mundy on Thursday to represent Hsu as the 56-year-old clothing-industry entrepreneur made his first appearance in the Manhattan court.

Hsu pleaded not guilty to charges that he violated federal campaign finance laws.

After the brief court appearance, Mundy told The Associated Press that his client had no choice but to rely on a court-appointed lawyer.



RNC Makes TN GOP Pull ‘Muslim Garb’ Photo

From Fox News:

Tennessee GOP Pulls ‘Hussein,’ Obama Photo From Fiery ‘Anti-Semite’ Release

by FOXNews.com

Thursday, February 28, 2008

The Tennessee Republican Party has toned down a fiery press release that included a controversial photo of Barack Obama and blasted the candidate on his stance on Israel. The release was changed after a rebuke from the Republican National Committee.

A GOP official told FOX News that the RNC privately chided the Tennessee Republican Party over the content of its online press release titled, “Anti-Semites for Obama,” which followed the endorsement of Obama by Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan…

“The RNC rejects these kinds of campaign tactics. We believe this election needs to be about the critical issues confronting our nation,” RNC Chairman Mike Duncan said Thursday.



Obama Is 0.6% Less Partisan Than Hillary

How many times has Mr. Obama told us that he will “reach across the aisle” and end the partisan bickering that has crippled Washington, DC for the last generation?

Indeed, it was the subject of discussion on Fox News’ Special Report last night:

‘Special Report’ Panel on Whether Obama Has the Experience to Unite Our Country

Wednesday, February 27, 2008


SEN. BARACK OBAMA, (D) PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: It is true that I am reaching across the aisle and calling for unity and bipartisanship. That is absolutely true. But I’m doing that knowing who I am and knowing who I fight for and knowing what I stand for.

LINDSEY GRAHAM, (R) SOUTH CAROLINA SENATOR: If you want to change things in Washington, you better be willing to look people in the eye who are normally your friends and say “I can’t help you here.” There’s not much of that going on as far as I can tell with Senator Obama.



Obama’s ‘Hopefund’ Only For Democrats

As in our other article on Mr. Obama’s bi-partisan bona fides, the question arises:

How many times has Mr. Obama told us that he will “reach across the aisle” and end the partisan bickering that has crippled Washington, DC for the last generation?

Well, as with so many things, Mr. Obama’s rhetoric does not quite match his record.

From “Barack Obama on Principles & Values” from at the putatively non-partisan site, On The Issues:

Hopefund PAC donated $500K to Democratic Senate candidates

In 2005, Sen. Barack Obama created Hopefund, a political committee, with the goal of promoting the candidacies of leaders who are committed to changing the course of our nation to ensure the promise of America for future generations.

Already, Hopefund has made contributions to Democratic Senators up for re-election in 2006 and helped raise nearly half a million to help the Democrats take back the US Senate.

Obama Still Demands We Have A Recession

From his idolaters at the Associated Press:

Obama slams Bush, McCain on economy

AUSTIN, Texas – Democrat Barack Obama rejected President Bush’s claim that the country isn’t headed for a recession, and slammed the economic policies followed by both Bush and Republican contender John McCain.

Things are getting worse, not better, and the country stands “on the brink of a recession,” the Illinois senator and front-runner for the Democratic nomination said Thursday.

Obama blamed a “failure of leadership” in Washington, implying McCain was part of that failed leadership.

Yes, Mr. Obama is trying to ‘keep hope alive.’ That is, the hope he can talk our economy into a recession.

But unfortunately for our hero it looks like the “let’s have a recession” ship may have already sailed.



Time Magazine’s Last Licks On Bill Buckley

From the former news magazine known as Time:

William F. Buckley: Mandarin of Right-Wing TV

One night in early 1962, William F. Buckley was Jack Paar’s guest on The Tonight Show. At 36, Buckley had been an infant phenom, writing the book God and Man at Yale (he was pro-God, anti-Yale) and an indulgent biography of Senator Joseph McCarthy. But as a TV personality, he was brand, startling new. Buckley pontificated for perhaps a dozen minutes, and when he left, Paar and his accomplice, Hugh Downs, were nearly apopletic — for Buckley, with his daredevil conservative views, had broken the unspoken rule of calm, liberalesque conversation. The following night, as it happened, the guest was Gore Vidal, as assertive and bombastic on the liberal side as Buckley had been on the Tory.



NYT Pretends McCain Can’t Be President

From the remarkably uninformed or merely malicious New York Times:

McCain’s Canal Zone Birth Prompts Queries About Whether That Rules Him Out

February 28, 2008

WASHINGTON — The question has nagged at the parents of Americans born outside the continental United States for generations: Dare their children aspire to grow up and become president? In the case of Senator John McCain of Arizona, the issue is becoming more than a matter of parental daydreaming.

Mr. McCain’s likely nomination as the Republican candidate for president and the happenstance of his birth in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936 are reviving a musty debate that has surfaced periodically since the founders first set quill to parchment and declared that only a “natural-born citizen” can hold the nation’s highest office…

In the best New York Times tradition, this article prattles on in a longwinded and uninformed fashion without ever reaching a conclusion.



Shocker: John Lewis Switches To Obama

From the CBS affiliate in Atlanta, WSB-TV:

Representative John Lewis of Georgia, who endorsed Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton on Friday, October 12, 2007.

John Lewis Switches Support To Obama

February 27, 2008

WASHINGTON — Georgia Congressman John Lewis told WSB-TV Channel 2’s Monica Pearson Wednesday that he is switching his support from Hillary Clinton to Barack Obama.

Pearson met with Congressman John Lewis Wednesday afternoon in Washington. She was the only Atlanta TV reporter Lewis spoke to about his switch.

Talk had been swirling that Lewis might switch his endorsement from Clinton to Obama. Lewis is a superdelegate who will cast his ballot at the Democratic National Convention.

Lewis told Pearson he was switching his support because his district voted for Obama and he believes Americans are looking for a great change.



The Great William F. Buckley, Jr. Has Died

From a relieved New York Times:

William F. Buckley Jr. in his office at the National Review in 1965.

William F. Buckley Jr. Is Dead at 82

William F. Buckley Jr., who marshaled polysyllabic exuberance, famously arched eyebrows and a refined, perspicacious mind to elevate conservatism to the center of American political discourse, died Wednesday at his home in Stamford, Conn.

Mr Buckley, 82, suffered from diabetes and emphysema, his son Christopher said, although the exact cause of death was not immediately known. He was found at his desk in the study of his home, his son said. “He might have been working on a column,” Mr. Buckley said.

Mr. Buckley’s winningly capricious personality, replete with ten-dollar words and a darting tongue writers loved to compare with an anteater’s, hosted one of television’s longest-running programs, “Firing Line,” and founded and shepherded the influential conservative magazine, National Review.



Shocker: BBC Protected Failed Terrorists

From the UK’s Telegraph:

Mohammed Hamid who was accused of encouraging his followers to murder non-believers and of running a terrorist training camp, has been found guilty, in London on February 26, 2008.

BBC knew of link to failed 21/7 bombers


A BBC producer failed to give police information that would have helped track down the July 21 bombers, the trial was told.

[A program called] Don’t Panic, I’m Islamic, which featured the group paintballing and an interview with Mohammed Hamid, was shown on BBC2 on June 12, 2005.

Nasreen Suleaman, the producer, told the court that Hamid said he would use his £300 fee to settle the fine he had been given by magistrates for racially abusing two policemen at his Oxford Street stall.
