It's the hope ... that the unreported story is ... the unreported story. President Barack Duey Obama. I think this election is most like 1976 than any other - the circumstances (war, economy & mistrust in government) are similar and the candidates (Obama & Carter, McCain & Ford) have their similarities with a backdrop of Nixon & Bush. You have a lot of insight into that time from your prior works & note Nixon here. I think the model to explore in these last two weeks is what + how Ford did - that election was also closer than imagined and, unfortunately, the prospects for the country are much likey the same if Obama were to pursue Carter philosophies ie big taxes + government.

How does Monica do it - al that talking on the radio, and also keeping up the memo, and doing little bits on FOX, and ... writing her book.

From Joe the Plumber:

"You know, when you can't ask a question of your leaders anymore, that gets scary," he said.

Monica,

Your persistence and faith in Conservatism is refreshing, poetic, and inspiring. It is one of the reasons I was attracted to your site, and why I enjoy your articles and the discussions with fellow travelers. You reify the definition of patriot.

The following article observes that even in the Conservative camp, there is dissent; the most prominent of which is the defection of Christopher Buckley, son of Wm. F., to endorse Obama. Poor Bill.

http://www.iht.com/articles/2008/10/19/america/thinkers.php

There is, therefore, a void that must be filled. Buchanan is filling it, but his forté is history, not economics. Newt is doing an exemplary job with his www.americansolutions.com but some -- aside from his loyal followers (among whom I count myself) -- may view him as anachronistic or predictable.

We need fresh blood ... fresh expression of irrefutable principles. We need a new voice to explain the immutable principles of Conservatism to the masses as Richard Feynman explained with unusual clarity the elegance of timeless physical laws.

We will help you, Monica. Let's go. Let's fight for 2008, and should we fall short of that noble fight, 2010, 2012, 2014, ... 2016.

Warm regards,

mjfell

The President's oath of office calls for him to solemnly swear to faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and to the best of their ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

Preserve, protect and defend it, not destroy it. Traitors seek to destroy it!

The far left socialist wing of the Democratic party seeks to destroy America. You don't raise taxes in a recession. That will destroy both business and jobs. Punishing success with higher taxes will mean less and less production, leading to a smaller and smaller pie of "wealth to spread".

Pursuing the Obama/Ayres policies employed in Chicago's efforts to "reform education" will resort in radical leftist insurrection, not improved learning.

Obama's openly stated intention to cut defense spending (especially for SDI) will leave the US weak and open to attack, at the very moment Russia is deploying tactical exercises in the Carribbean and invading adjacent democracies. Now that Iran has tested missles and close to having a nuclear warhead sure seems like the perfect time to stop work on and dismantle a missle defense shield. Right. His plans to retreat and surrender in Iraq at the moment of victory will give a free pass to Al Qaida to crow about having defeated the Great Satan and advance their ability to recruit more radical suicide bombers.

Obama's appointments to the courts will lead to abortion on demand, no matter the term of pregnancy. His policies and judicial appointments will mean amnesty for illegal aliens at the very moment we need to put American citizens to work!

Obama's already crying about how Fox News has cost him a bigger lead in the polls. You can bet your last dollar that the leftists will go out of their way to silence anyone and everyone who voices an opposing opinion. Look at what they've done to "Joe the plumber", just for asking a simple question! Much more of that can be expected when the far left socialists have unchecked power in Washington DC. They've already begun the systematic destruction of the two party system for incorrectly placing 100% of the blame for the current economic mess on George W. Bush and Republican economic policies. You can definitely expect this to continue when the Democratic majority begins congressional investigations "intended" to "find out the truth". Barny Franks, Chris Dodd and the rest of the Democrats who initiated and aggressively advanced the sub-prime lending practices with their ACORN buddies and then blocked repeated attempts to legislate regulation on Fannie and Freddie will walk away unscathed.

The far left socialist wing of the Democratic party has driven me farther and farther to the right as a direct result of their actions. They've already begun and will continue the desctruction of the economy. They'll work tirelessly to redefine society in their image through the promotion of their radical, anti-American ideas. They will systematically eliminate any and all opposition to their ideology. They will destroy America.

They are traitors, in the fine tradition of Benedict Arnold.

M/M

I thought TGM was great today, especially Patrick Buchanan's line about Obama being a graduate of Sal Olinsky's school of community organizing because it really sums up my reservations with Obama. Anyone not watching the baseball game might want to check out "Hannity's America" to learn more about Obama's radical connections Part II.

The Left always seems to be condemning the U.S. for our military actions or past historical events that they see as unjust, yet they idolize Bill Ayers. Do you realize that the bomb that accidentially went off in that NYC penthouse, killing three members of the Weather Underground, was meant for an Army dance at Fort Dix? And what about the outrage for the three people murdered during the Brinks robber?

I hope McCain doesn't "throw in the sponge" because I Obama's far-left friends are scary.

Peggy Noonan is having hot flashes which my beloved wife is going through. Males do to.

Don't listen to Monica Crowley, wingnuts. Obama has as good as won. And no one cares about wingnuts' opinions. The rest of us are in hysterics about the Crazy McCain Supporter who called Obama an Arab (and McCain's horrified reaction) and the Mad McCain Supporter who expressed his anger and interrupted McCain at his own rally (McCain's response: "Excu-u-use me!"

Get yourselves ready for mid-term elections. This one is over, and your adversaries have won.

Good news. Obama's lead had slipped by 3 points. It must be the "Joe the Plumber factor.

Fred,

It is not over:

"Some Surveys Indicate Tighter Presidential Race" (WSJ)

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB122420151553142939.html

This was Friday's article. McCain is making a lot of headway over the weekend pounding Obama's tax plan as Socialism, which is exactly what it is. Then we have the ACORN fiasco.

Newt made a point on This Week today that in this age of the Internet 10 days is an eternity.

This is not over.

Arcturus

An interesting occurrence would be if Obama wins and he actually either scraps his leftist policies (a long shot) or just can't get Congress to pass them for whatever reason (another long shot) and adapts conservative principles and let's say hypothetically that the country does real well after that for whatever reason. What would people who voted for him think about that? How would they react? Would they actually admit that maybe the conservative principles helped out or at least maybe did not cause any harm, or would they simply be dishonest and say that Obama represented those political philosophies all throughout his campaign in the first place?

Truther

Dear Arcturus and MAvari :

You will have to grin and bear the changes arising, which with full moon portends
significant alterations in Party alinement and allegiance. There are splits in both parties. Will the Clinton faction go away? Will the far right flim-flam plunderer sorts continue to plague the Right? Will a new and renew vigor seize upon a new faction?

Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south
(Job 9:9).

GilbertWashington

NJFELL seeks to become a right iconoclast:

"The far left socialist wing of the Democratic party has driven me farther and farther to the right as a direct result of their actions. They've already begun and will continue the desctruction of the economy. "

Those leftist bankers on Wall St and their Democratic Party ennablers move MJ to the fringe. He sees the majority of american voters as abetting traitors, if not directly involved in treason.

Here is a guy that has swallowed the rhetoric and has become emblematic of the handiwork on the right-radio frankenstein spin machine.

MJ ask yourself: Why was McCain & Obama at a celebrity roast making collegial barbs at one another?

I'll ask you one more thing before you emmigrate to Uzbekistan where the right wing is firmly in charge:

When President Obama gives his first State of the Union why is that both sides of the aisle will will welcome hime with a 5 minuite standing O?

It's time to take down the Willy Horton Wanted Posters and the Bernie Goetz 4 President signs out of your bedroom.
America will muddle through.

Op-Ed by Sen. John McCain: "Stand with Experience to Send America in a New Direction":

http://www.johnmccain.com/informing/news/newsreleases/43d6e4d4-cf8c-4bf5-9f20-a3d9c2315b73.htm

Truther

Freddie Mac secretly paid a Republican consulting firm $2 million to kill legislation that would have regulated and trimmed the mortgage finance giant and its sister company, Fannie Mae, three years before the government took control to prevent their collapse.

In the cross hairs of the campaign carried out by DCI of Washington were Republican senators and a regulatory overhaul bill sponsored by Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb. DCI's chief executive is Doug Goodyear, whom John McCain's campaign later hired to manage the GOP convention in September.

A split in the Republican Party. TG. for their is a chance to get rid of the extremely bad influence peddling.

Anyone hear about Sarah Palin absolutely refusing to release her medical records. I wonder "WHY?" May she had a case of moose pimples.

Truther

I may be conservative, and McCain may like dogs and other pets and children, but man, he attracts fleas, doesn't he? It seems they have been with him since Nam.
Perhaps John can be the flea pied piper, and the party can run a second candidate.

It is a hard job, defending these characters, isn't it? Poor Monica.

Peter Yost is a left wing journalist with an agenda against McCain and conservatives.

motel6

Oh, Lord, "the silent majority"????

Please keep in mind the difference between "voter registration" fraud and "voter" fraud. "Mickey Mouse" and "Spongebob Squarepants" will not be voting in the election.

If McCain wins because of some guy who's (a) not a plumber, (b) isn't going to buy a company that makes between $250,000 and $280,000 a year, and (c) earns about $40,000 a year himself so he'd do better under Obama's tax plan, then we all of us deserve what we get.

GilbertWashington

MJFELL sees more left wing treason coming from murkey sources within Associated Press:

"Peter Yost is a left wing journalist with an agenda against McCain and conservatives"


Here is more agenda against McCain coming from conservatives on the right:

Thanks to Ralph Raico, who sends along this comment from Steve Sailer: "Will McCain, who finished 894th out of 899 at the Naval Academy and who lost five jets, return competence to the White House? To paraphrase Oscar Wilde (and, no, Oscar was never a fighter pilot), to lose one plane over Vietnam may be regarded as a heroic tragedy; to lose five planes here and there looks like carelessness.""

Truther

I agree with M/M. Between the inexperienced kid, outmanuvered by power constituencies, and McCain, covered in conflicts of interest and a host of power constituencies of his own, the silent majority is almost completely ignored - as we head toward a depression. Get drunk, hold your nose, vote, and hope you cannot remember what you did. Perhaps it is time to get out our guns, and read our bibles to protect us from flack.

M/M

Forgive me if I'm reposting this article, but the liberal supermajority is change I don't want. McCain is far from perfect but at least the people who support him don't always seem to be condemning America

McCain should talk about taxes and nothing else in the final days. The Obama-Pelosi-Reid economic plan will keep us deeper and longer in a recession.

But here is the problem:

"McCain is no salesman on tax proposals"

Let's hope McCain or Palin read Clive's article.

Monica is right. This election is not over. I hope that the Democratic fraudsters have finally been exposed and we can have some accountability in our elections instead of being just another third world country when it comes to elections.

Unfortunately this is not new. The Democrats stole the 1960 election through the same tactics they are using this year. They don't want any accountability so they steal the elections.

I will proudly vote for John McCain/Sarah Palin in three weeks and our great Senator from Oklahoma, Jim Inhofe.

With all due respect (and you know I do respect you), it's over.

Angela

Both campaigns are undergoing transition planning, in coordination w/ the FBI to prepare for potential security threats. Monica, you're very much entitled to your right-wing conservative viewpoint but at least get the facts straight before you throw yourself another pity party.

FK

Angela --

Monica is not big on facts. She's more into emotion. Kind of like a certain president we've had who made decisions according to his gut, but was not into book learning.

hickory

Oh, please.

If and when Barack Obama defeats John McCain, who by the way is a good and decent man, we can all thank the likes of Monica Crowley, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Billy Cunningham, Laura Ingraham, and Rush Limbaugh for manifesting the vile and vicious underbelly of virulent hate that simmers and seethes in America.

Even Newt Gingrich has said that the NEGATIVE CAMPAIGN will hurt McCain. Way to go, Monica. But you can't help it. It's your nature to hate and slander. So keep it up.

Then there's the Palin pick. I hear that was Steve Schmidt's blunder. Talk about keystone kops. The party that couldn't shoot straight. No, they're not straight shooters now, are they? (champagne already on ice - OBAMA '08)

FK

Hickory --

Agreed. McCain's campaign was seriously mismanaged. The man most of us respected because of his "straight talk" was promoted by a Lee Atwater/Karl Rove-style campaign. It backfired.

Ummahgummah

No, HICKory. You can thank Moveon, Dailykooks, Cod epink and others for the seething hate.

A McCain Rally in Upper Manhattan was viciosly insulted and made rude gestures at by Obamanites.

Don't blame the messenger.

GilbertWashington

MJFELL shows surprise that Democrats would want to place blame on Bush for economic meltdown:

"They've already begun the systematic destruction of the two party system for incorrectly placing 100% of the blame for the current economic mess on George W. Bush and Republican economic policies."

I was chagrined but not surprised when MJFELL blamed the economic meltdown 100% on minorities. MJ was merely showing us then how he has been "moving further and further to the right".

GilbertWashington

Fred seconds my observation that MM & synchophants are in denial:

"This is not over.

Posted by: Michael Avari | October 19, 2008 at 07:42 PM

With all due respect (and you know I do respect you), it's over."

When the patter starts advising the choir to prevent a supermajority and the filibuster then the rhetoric about a last minute stunner for Sidney becomes increasingly attenuated.

It's over.

The job of the uber-recht is to de-legitimize the mandate and to roll-out a parade of horribles like zimbzbweian necklacing... rhetoric upon rhetoric, more cowpat from turdblossoms.

FK

Gilbert --

Can you perhaps explain why you (and some others) refer to McCain as "Sidney"?

GilbertWashington

UG reposts video of pro-McCain supporters parading in NYC:

"Liberal Outrage: A Pro-McCain March In Manhattan"

While Sidneys-synchopants march without a parade permit to exercize free speech they film spectators exercizing their own free speech. If your entire agenda is that your opponent is tied to terror what do you expect?

Looks like one shy of a klan rally in Harlem..

NYC residents have exercised tremendous restraint!


BTW, it appears that at least three of those marching are in togas and a mysterious Lamborghini is following in tow....

GilbertWashington

Fred asks what's in a name:

"Gilbert --

Can you perhaps explain why you (and some others) refer to McCain as "Sidney"?"

In the same way the neoconservative panjandrum is fixated on Barak's middle name.

Actually it is an unanswerable koan to me that John Sidney McCain III can successfully feign faux-populism with the trailer park thru Joe the Plumber and Saturday Nite Sarah.
But then the Party of wealth and privilege needs a hook to get people to vote against their pecuniary interest: Like having a beer, or instilling fear.
Look what they've done to MJ and Bobo.

mjfell,

No, this thing is not over, despite ACORN, the Obamasuck, and the Soros-like millions funding it(But I would still advise McCain to unleash the full force of Palin Power, and watch the OSM heads explode.)

And yes, kudos in silently showing the right-wing of your back side to Little Barry's race-baiting 'Republican' shill. The ordinarily incisive and spirited Michael Avari may still be too "socially liberal" to leave Agent Slimey to Agent Slimey's own devices, but maybe it's just a gentlemanly fear of being slapped with Slimey's race card,("But Michael, you are the one dude here I could not see attending a Klanbake or rally.

So Fred, a kangeroo hops into a bar and orders a drink. The bartender looks at him and says: "Say, we don't get too many kangeroos in here."
The kangeroo looks back to the bartender and replies:
"And at these prices you won't get too many more."
