I’LL BE BACK ON MONDAY
Posted by PrestoPundit on 04/21/2008
with a new installment of “Greg’s Guide to Obama’s Dreams from My Father.” In the mean time anything that strikes my fancy will be posted below.
TOM MAGUIRE: “If Obama has crashed back to earth it is in large part because folks
are realizing that there is nothing behind the curtain except an
utterly conventional far-left liberal with no experience, no history of
bipartisanship, and no track record of success in Washington.”
BARACK OBAMA — not left wing enough.
ANOTHER REPUBLICAN OFFSPRING switches to the left? Lord knows Jenna Bush didn’t learn anything worth knowing about conservative ideas from her father.
OBAMA’S anti-American friend Bill Ayers is now planting ideological bombs in the American education system.
FUN TIMES with Barack Obama’s long-time political friends — who believe America needs blowing up.
MORE on Obama’s radical friends from Rick Moran.
ROGER SIMON sees nothing “progressive” in Barack Obama’s racist and anti-American associates.
WHO ARE the Obama voters? Obama lost among moderate voters, he lost among the somewhat conservative voters, and he among somewhat liberal voters. The only demographic Obama won was the very liberal voters. Obama lost among every income class except the very rich and the very poor. Obama lost among every religious group except “none” or “something else” or “other Christian” (Greek Orthodox? Black Liberation Theology?). Obama lost among all types of religious service attenders accept “none”. Obama lost every part of Pennsylvania except Philadelphia. Obama lost the population demographic for every size of town and city in Pennsylvania except for the demographic of cities over 1/2 million. Obama lost the small and medium size cities and rural areas by 20 percentage points and more. Obama lost among high school graduates and community college graduates, and merely broke even among those with four year college degrees and post graduate educations.
Also worth noting: 31% of Democrat voters think Barack Obama is not honest and trustworthy. 10% of Democrat voters say they will vote for John McCain in November, and another 7% say they will not vote in November. About 3 out of every 5 Democrat voters where women. Finally, this. In several counties Clinton beat Obama by 45-50 percentage points.
POWERLINE ON THE FRIENDS OF BARACK OBAMA. Don’t miss the audio from 2007. Quotable: “Bernadine Dohrn .. is the only public figure, to my knowledge, to
approve publicly and enthusiastically of the Charles Manson murders.”
FrontPage Mag has the Dohrn-Manson story here. And here’s a link which establishes that Barack Obama spent time with his friends Bernadine Dohrn and William Ayers repeatedly across a period of at least nine years, and as recently as 2002, including at a seminar organized by Michelle Obama. So among Obama’s good lefty friends with whom he had an ongoing working relationship are two cold blooded terrorists who believe in murdering policemen, legislators, and American soldiers. It’s sickening but true: left wing terrorist / “intellectuals” like this are perfectly welcome among important segments of the lefty – Democrat university community, among whom Barack and Michelle Obama stand out only for their garden variety typicality.
AS CATCHY AS a 19th century campaign slogan — McCain’s 3 x 5 card Republican platform: “The jobs are never coming back, the illegals are never going
home, but we’re going to have a lot more wars.”
THE BIOGRAPHY AND RANTINGS of the guy who came up with the “Earth Day” idea are almost beyond parody. Anyone who’s read H. L. Mencken on the post-Christian crusaders and “do gooders” of the 20s and 30s can easily identify the type — the half educated son of an evangelical minister out to save the world, not for Christ, but for “humanity” and “nature.” Somehow, lacking either a grounding in revealed religion or a sound education, these types tend to float off into the utopian heavens of a post-capitalist dreamland. And, yes, it’s rather clear that John McConnell had in mind something like an idolatry of the Earth when he first imaged Earth Day.
PHINEAS & FERB on YouTube. My son and I love this show. Already the two of us have built a robot, had “swinter” in the back yard, and built our own back yard beach — all inspired by Phineas & Ferb. If you’ve ever been a boy or had an older sister, you’ll love Phineas & Ferb.
Next up? A backyard circus.
