Just Words


Profound statement on Barack. Nearly all of Obama’s appeal requires his supporters to take on faith thathe will do things he has never done. And another. But on the question of whether Obama will ever take a meaningful stand againstcorruption or waste in his own party or stand up to vested interests andideological extremists on […]



He didn’t do anything as bold as I would have liked, but McCain gave a solid performance tonight that should remove some of the reservations that swing voters might have been feeling after last week’s debate.

Jealous Jesse


Jesse Jackson is still trying to ruin things for Barack. PREPARE for a new America: That’s the message that the Rev.

He promised “fundamental changes” in US foreign policy – saying America must “heal wounds” it […]
