AP: Polls Tighen - Obama leads by ....1?

Keep hope Alive!

"WASHINGTON (AP) - The presidential race tightened after the final debate, with John McCain gaining among whites and people earning less than $50,000, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll that shows McCain and Barack Obama essentially running even among likely voters in the election homestretch.

The poll, which found Obama at 44 percent and McCain at 43 percent, supports what some Republicans and Democrats privately have said in recent days: that the race narrowed after the third debate as GOP-leaning voters drifted home to their party and McCain's "Joe the plumber" analogy struck a chord.

Three weeks ago, an AP-GfK survey found that Obama had surged to a seven-point lead over McCain, lifted by voters who thought the Democrat was better suited to lead the nation through its sudden economic crisis."


Again, as I've been telling you on the show the current polling is bogus and off the chart because they sample more than 50% more Democrats than Republicans. Something that's noted in this story.

"Charles Franklin, a University of Wisconsin political science professor and polling authority, said variation between polls occurs, in part, because pollsters interview random samples of people.

"If they all agree, somebody would be doing something terribly wrong," he said of polls. But he also said that surveys generally fall within a few points of each other, adding, "When you get much beyond that, there's something to explain."


Yeah, hold your breath for C-BS to explain that 14 point gap in their poll last week.

Upstanding Democrat who Replaced Mark Foley Caught in Sex Scandal

Note to Pelosi, the Swamp.....

"West Palm Beach Congressman Tim Mahoney (D-FL), whose predecessor resigned in the wake of a sex scandal, agreed to a $121,000 payment to a former mistress who worked on his staff and was threatening to sue him, according to current and former members of his staff who have been briefed on the settlement, which involved Mahoney and his campaign committee.

Mahoney, who is married, also promised the woman, Patricia Allen, a $50,000 a year job for two years at the agency that handles his campaign advertising, the staffers said.

A Mahoney spokesperson would not answer questions about the alleged affair or the settlement, but said Allen resigned of her own accord and "has not received any special payment from campaign funds."

Senior Democratic leaders in the House of Representatives, including Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-IL), the chair of the Democratic Caucus, have been working with Mahoney to keep the matter from hurting his re-election campaign, the Mahoney staffers said.

A spokesperson for Emanuel denies that account, but said Emanuel did confront Mahoney "upon hearing a rumor" about an affair in 2007 and "told him he was in public life and had a responsibility to act accordingly." The spokesperson added that it was a "private conversation" that had nothing to do with Mahoney's re-election prospects.

Emanuel's spokesperson said Emanual had not had any further contacts with Mahoney on the subject and did not know the woman involved worked on Mahoney's Congressional staff until informed by ABC News.

Mahoney was elected two years ago following the abrupt resignation of his disgraced predecessor, Republican Mark Foley, whose lewd internet messages to teenage boys and Congressional pages created a national outrage.

The affair between Mahoney and Allen began, according to the current and former staffers, in 2006 when Mahoney was campaigning for Congress against Foley, promising "a world that is safer, more moral."


Roll that Swamp Music!



Yeah, "Moral". It's a Swamp Thing. By the way, since West Palm Beach is right up the road, we're on it. So is Gateway Pundit.

FACT: Obama was a New Party Member!

It's not not a matter of conjecture, it's a matter of fact.

"In June sources released information that during his campaign for the State Senate in Illinois, Barack Obama was endorsed by an organization known as the Chicago "New Party". The 'New Party' was a political party established by the Democratic Socialists of America (the DSA) to push forth the socialist principles of the DSA by focusing on winnable elections at a local level and spreading the Socialist movement upwards. The admittedly Socialist Organization experienced a moderate rise in numbers between 1995 and 1999. By 1999, however, the Socialist 'New Party' was essentially defunct after losing a supreme court challenge that ruled the organizations "fusion" reform platform as unconstitutional.

After allegations surfaced in early summer over the 'New Party's' endorsement of Obama, the Obama campaign along with the remnants of the New Party and Democratic Socialists of America claimed that Obama was never a member of either organization. The DSA and 'New Party' then systematically attempted to cover up any ties between Obama and the Socialist Organizations. However, it now appears that Barack Obama was indeed a certified and acknowledged member of the DSA's New Party.

On Tuesday, I discovered a web page that had been scrubbed from the New Party's website. The web page which was published in October 1996, was an internet newsletter update on that years congressional races. Although the web page was deleted from the New Party's website, the non-profit Internet Archive Organization had archived the page.

From the October 1996 Update of the DSA 'New Party':

"New Party members are busy knocking on doors, hammering down lawn signs, and phoning voters to support NP candidates this fall. Here are some of our key races...

Illinois: Three NP-members won Democratic primaries last Spring and face off against Republican opponents on election day: Danny Davis (U.S. House), Barack Obama (State Senate) and Patricia Martin (Cook County Judiciary)."

Beyond the archived web page from the Socialist New Party is the recognition by the "Progressive Populist" magazine in November 1996 that Obama was indeed an acknowledged member of the Socialist Party.

"New Party members and supported candidates won 16 of 23 races, including an at-large race for the Little Rock, Ark., City Council, a seat on the county board for Little Rock and the school board for Prince George's County, Md. Chicago is sending the first New Party member to Congress, as Danny Davis, who ran as a Democrat, won an overwhelming 85% victory. New Party member Barack Obama was uncontested for a State Senate seat from Chicago. "


Will the media do it's job now and report this so that the American people are fully informed?

McCain/Obama Live Debate Thread ***Video Added Watch It Here!***UPDATE: McCain wins on points, but disappoints.

Beginning at 9pm EST, live thread of the debate. Here's what I'm looking for from McCain.

1. No more Mr. Nice Guy. McCain needs to hit Obama on his associations with Ayers and Wright and not back down. Millions of Americans have not seen this information, it's time to let them know.

2. Tell voters that he - not Obama - warned of the Fanny and Freddie mess and that the root of the mess is the inaction of Obama and his Democratic cohorts over the last five years. Let the American people know that he tried to stop it but the Democrats blocked attempts at reform. The result is $800,000 of their money going down the drain to federalize the free market.

3. Get Obama off his script. Make him mad, get him flustered and searching for words, which he has done before. Show America just how much of a fraud he is when he's not being told what to say by his handlers.



UPDATE: FACT CHECK per the Corner:

"Obama's letter to Paulson and Bernanke was written on March 22, 2007. 25 subprime lenders failed in February/March of 2007, and the largest subprime lender New Century Financial was teetering on collapse (it filed for bankruptcy five days after Obama's letter). His letter was a response to headlines, not some prescient call to action."


UPDATE: Obama's dumb statement of the night, "A lot of you remember the tragedy of 9/11." As if we forgot?

UPDATE: Via CNN who is the only MSM organization getting off it's ass to look at Obama and Ayers:

"A review of board minutes and records by CNN show Obama, crossed paths repeatedly with Ayers at board meetings of the Annenberg Challenge Project.The Annenberg Foundation gave the project a $50 million grant to match local private funds to improve schools, and Ayers fought to bring the grant to Chicago, according to participants and project records.The project's organizing committee asked Obama to serve as the board chairman in 1995. Annenberg Project Executive Director Ken Rollings said Ayers was not a member of that ad hoc group when the decision was made. For seven years, Ayers and Obama -- among many others -- worked on funding for education projects, including some projects advocated by Ayers...the board, for example, gave hundreds of thousands of dollars to Bill Ayers' small schools project. The project promoted alternative education, including projects like the Peace School -- where the curriculum centered on a United Nations theme -- and another school where the focus was African-American studies...The project shut down in 2003 after achieving "little impact on school improvement and student outcomes," its final report stated.While working on the Annenberg project, Obama and Ayers also served together on a second charitable foundation, the Woods Fund. It was that foundation that Obama referenced in the debate -- not the Annenberg Challenge.Among Wood Foundation recipients were the Rev. Jeremiah Wright's Trinity United Church, where Obama attended and was married; and the Children and Family Justice Center, where Ayers' wife Dohrn was director."


Not bad for someone you "hardly knew" eh Barry? This is why asking Obama about Ayers is relevant, because he's LYING.

UPDATE: Once again, here's Obama view on our national security:




UPDATE: EPILOG: Overall, a dissapointment. McCain doesn't go after Obama on Freddie and Fannie, or Ayers, and that's a shame. They are all valid points. The bailout for homeowners infuriates my "conservative" side, but I understand the move. Homeowners - taxpayers - qot squat on the bailout and are pissed. McCain offered a plan to them, Obama just danced around the question.

While it's bad conservatism, it's a risky, yet savvy political move. Even though only 9 percent of homeowners are in trouble with their mortgage, that could translate into a few points of support from the independents in that group.

The 14 Lies of Joe Biden in Last Night's Debate

Should change his name to Pinocchio Joe! Count 'em, 14 lies Joe told in the VP debate last night.

1. TAX VOTE: Biden said McCain voted “the exact same way” as Obama to increase taxes on Americans earning just $42,000, but McCain DID NOT VOTE THAT WAY.

2. AHMEDINIJAD MEETING: Joe Biden lied when he said that Barack Obama never said that he would sit down unconditionally with Mahmoud Ahmedinijad of Iran. Barack Obama did say specifically, and Joe Biden attacked him for it.

3. OFFSHORE OIL DRILLING: Biden said, “Drill we must.” But Biden has opposed offshore drilling and even compared offshore drilling to “raping” the Outer Continental Shelf.”

4. TROOP FUNDING: Joe Biden lied when he indicated that John McCain and Barack Obama voted the same way against funding the troops in the field. John McCain opposed a bill that included a timeline, that the President of the United States had already said he would veto regardless of it’s passage.

5. OPPOSING CLEAN COAL: Biden says he’s always been for clean coal, but he just told a voter that he is against clean coal and any new coal plants in America and has a record of voting against clean coal and coal in the U.S. Senate.

6. ALERNATIVE ENERGY VOTES: According to FactCheck.org, Biden is exaggerating and overstating John McCain’s record voting for alternative energy when he says he voted against it 23 times.

7. HEALTH INSURANCE: Biden falsely said McCain will raise taxes on people's health insurance coverage -- they get a tax credit to offset any tax hike. Independent fact checkers have confirmed this attack is false

8. OIL TAXES: Biden falsely said Palin supported a windfall profits tax in Alaska -- she reformed the state tax and revenue system, it's not a windfall profits tax.

9. AFGHANISTAN / GEN. MCKIERNAN COMMENTS: Biden said that top military commander in Iraq said the principles of the surge could not be applied to Afghanistan, but the commander of NATO's International Security Assistance Force Gen. David D. McKiernan said that there were principles of the surge strategy, including working with tribes, that could be applied in Afghanistan.

10. REGULATION: Biden falsely said McCain weakened regulation -- he actually called for more regulation on Fannie and Freddie.

11. IRAQ: When Joe Biden lied when he said that John McCain was “dead wrong on Iraq”, because Joe Biden shared the same vote to authorize the war and differed on the surge strategy where they John McCain has been proven right.

12. TAX INCREASES : Biden said Americans earning less than $250,000 wouldn’t see higher taxes, but the Obama-Biden tax plan would raise taxes on individuals making $200,000 or more.

13. BAILOUT: Biden said the economic rescue legislation matches the four principles that Obama laid out, but in reality it doesn’t meet two of the four principles that Obama outlined on Sept. 19, which were that it include an emergency economic stimulus package, and that it be part of “part of a globally coordinated effort with our partners in the G-20.”

14. REAGAN TAX RATES: Biden is wrong in saying that under Obama, Americans won't pay any more in taxes then they did under Reagan.

C-BS Cooks the Polls (Again) for Biden/Palin Debate - Luntz Group (using real people you can see) puts the win squarely with Palin

As it should be, Palin won.



C-BS cooked up a similar poll of so-called uncommitted (people who usually don't vote anyway) after last week's democratic debate. The breakdown nearly 2-1 democrat respondent making the poll useless for anything except a headline. CNN's poll used a likewise breakdown. The quickness at which CNN posted their results - within ten minutes of the debate - proves they knew exactly how well Palin did.

The point is with Luntz's group is that it was decidedly with Palin - enormously so - and although a smaller sample it was balanced and diverse and actually had people you could see.

In essense the polls are meaningly and cooked, Palin won over America last night just as she did during the RNC. It's hugh and the polls will show it in the coming days.

Obama Wrong Change for Children - The Truth about Obama and Abortion

****Warning*** the second video is graphic but needed to make the point that Barack Hussein Obama is not the friend of children some would have you believe. In fact you might have seen this video where children praise Obama.



But this video tells you how Obama really feels about the children, especially the disposability of the unborn.

What Palin has to do tonight - Semi Live Blog ***UPDATE: Sad Joe and the Nixon Shadow

Sarah Palin doesn't need to do anything tonight except be herself. Do not, I repeat, do not believe the MSM or the polls, they are missing the point on her - as they always do - big time. In spite of the MSM assasination attempts on her, Palin is still packing in crowds and it's growing - NOT shrinking.

You should no by now that polls are created to make news and it's in the question that the news is formed. Subsequently when polls are seemly showing Palin sliding in popularity nothing is further from the truth.

We see this every election. We saw it in 2000 and especially in 2004 when the media threw everything but the kitchen sink at George Bush. I remember hearing the same moaning and groaning that it was all over and that we'd all be calling John Kerry president on November 5th.

It didn't happen. It didn't happen because no matter what the polls said or the leftwing media elite threw out there America made up it's own mind and in the end George Bush won by a comfortable margin.

It's going to happen again in one month.

All Palin will have to do is show that she is the true agent of change and hope, not Barack Obama. It's funny for all the talk about how she doesn't know supreme court decisions, and seems lost in trick question interviews, people miss - or ignore - the fact that Barack Obama isn't the brightest bulb on the tree either. AFter all Palin doesn't have 300 foreign policy advisers or the army of coaches and image consultants that Obama has on the payroll.

She doesn't carry a teleprompter to ever speaking event like he does either, nor get lost when she can't find the script.

Like Obama:



In fact the best thing about Sarah Palin is that she's not a fraud like Barack Obama is, and that's all she has to get across to the American Public tonight.

UPDATE: Just dropped in, server problems again, but Palin is performing above expectations and Joe Biden looks....old and angry. This is a Nixon moment for him and may just turn this around for McCain yet. I'll comment as needed.

UPDATE: Palin wins the debate hands down. On Fox News Frank Lunz's focus group was off the chart for Palin, predicts hugh swing for McCain in the polls over the next couple of days. I agree.

UPDATE: Michelle Malkin: Sarah Rocks! Yes she does indeed and it's why you will see the media assassination attempts continue, but it's not going to work. America will be turning to Sarah Palin, one of their own who is like them in ways a Barack Hussein Obama cannot begin to.

Picking on Palin - Hey Joe, tell us about the Pipeline!

Odds are that Mr. Hairplugs - who didn't know that FDR was NOT president in 1929 wouldn't know. Yet the MSM continues it's gang rape of Sarah Palin by going after her answer to perky Katiie about the Supreme Court case Marbury vs. Madison.

"Tonight's installment of Katie Couric playing Roger Mudd to Sarah Palin's Ted Kennedy features the much-anticipated Supreme Court non-answer.

The bad news for McCain: This offers yet more evidence that Palin has thought little about many policy issues facing the country and world.

The good news for McCain: This is the last footage Couric has. We think."




Again, not a surprising take on from the Obama Apologetic - aka The Politico (Official News Magazine of the Obama Campaign). But the fact is that when Biden was asked about specific Supreme Court decisions he couldn't cite either, but then he's not a feisty hocky mom that makes Jonathan Martin so angry he could just spit.

Senate Passes HANDOUT with SWEETENERS attached!

The Senate Vote?

"WASHINGTON - After one spectacular failure, the $700 billion financial industry bailout found a second life Wednesday, winning lopsided passage in the Senate and gaining ground in the House, where Republicans opposition softened.

Senators loaded the economic rescue bill with tax breaks and other sweeteners before passing it by a wide margin, 74-25, a month before the presidential and congressional elections.

In the House, leaders were working feverishly to convert enough opponents of the bill to push it through by Friday, just days after lawmakers there stunningly rejected an earlier version and sent markets plunging around the globe.

The measure didn't cause the same uproar in the Senate, where both parties' presidential candidates, Republican John McCain and Democrat Barack Obama, made rare appearances to cast "aye" votes.

In the final vote, 40 Democrats, 33 Republicans and independent Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut voted "yes." Nine Democrats, 15 Republicans and independent Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont voted "no."


Now it's back to the house. Keep the phones ringing, let them know NO to the bailout.
