Close Race for Prez

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/RCP_PDF/BG_102108_2-way-ballot-trender.pdf

The Battleground Poll is showing Obama by 1 point. Sen. Biden was pulled off the campaign trail today as well (I wonder why?).

Could it be for the same reason that they are not going to release his health records?

Filmmaker Oliver Stones film "W" has tanked. I think it is because its a film no one is interested in seeing. MSM is saying it is because of the bad economy keeping people from the movies.

Um.. that Chihuahua movie is doing good box office and Max Payne is as well. Just two weeks ago the MSM was saying the economy may be tanking, but the box office remains healthy.

Seeing as Mr. Stones films are pure fiction yet purports to be fact has always been irksome. So I cannot help but smile.

Um, Biden is campaigning in Colorado today and tomorrow.

Yes, Joe Biden is a horrible, horrible person.

I wish he was more like Palin, with her strong character and untouchable ethics.

Not sure why you think Biden is a horrible person. I think he is just confused, with health problems that need to be hidden.

Palin is way ahead of Biden in Character and Ethics. Way ahead of Obama too.

That Yahoo piece is just another in the long line of attacks.

"Alaska law does not specifically address expenses for a governor's children." This means it is okay.

The Liberal theme is Attack and Destroy the person. Just ask Joe the Plumber.

Amazing how the media is digging into Palin's expense reports. Have they done a similar effort for any of the other candidates?

Thanks for your link to HOT AIR. The website says it is "the world’s first full-service conservative Internet broadcast network!" So, I guess you understand that it's biased.

I'm sort of surprised you would believe HOT AIR over news reports and videos of Biden speaking in Colorado that day. Are you saying that our local news channels made up those stories, and that Biden did not speak at those events in Colorado at which he was photographed and filmed? Perhaps they Photoshopped in his image behind a podium?

My remarks about Biden and Palin were sarcasm, Lee. I'm sure you've heard of sarcasm. I can provide links, if you need them.

And just because "Alaska law does not specifically address expenses for a governor's children," does NOT make it ok to do what she did. Here's a bit more from the story that you clearly DIDN'T read, because if you had, you would understand--as any intelligent, rational, ethical person would--that what she did was wrong.

"The law allows for payment of expenses for anyone conducting official state business.

As governor, Palin justified having the state pay for the travel of her daughters — Bristol, 17; Willow, 14; and Piper, 7 — by noting on travel forms that the girls had been invited to attend or participate in events on the governor's schedule.

But some organizers of these events said they were surprised when the Palin children showed up uninvited, or said they agreed to a request by the governor to allow the children to attend.

Several other organizers said the children merely accompanied their mother and did not participate. The trips enabled Palin, whose main state office is in the capital of Juneau, to spend more time with her children."

And now it seems that Palin has allowed the RNC to pay $150,000 for her clothes. CLOTHES!

Yup, that's a prime example of the fiscal responsibility Palin keeps preaching (for you Lee, that's sarcasm).

and were is the report on clothing spent on Obama, Biden, Michelle etc? Besides, who cares? That was the RNC so your just pulling whatever frothing thing you can find out of the biased medias butt.

Oh yes, I trust new media over MSM in nearly every case. More and more people agree as well. MSM viewers are dropping like flies.

BTW Hot Air was correct. Not that you'll see or agree on that.

I'm afraid your just too dang blinded by the left, enjoy the koolaid.

Lee said...

BTW, love the sarcasm lessons when you did not 'get' my sarcasm.

I got a pretty good laugh from that.

The Happy Cynic said...

How can Hot Air be correct, when Biden was clearly campaigning in Colorado that day? Please explain.

Who cares that Palin spent $150,000 of the RNC's money? Seriously? And why do you think there are no reports about what the DNC spent on Michelle Obama's clothes? Not even on conservative media sites?

You are too intelligent to just turn a blind eye to facts. Why do you? How can you? Don't you have a responsibility to make a decision based on facts, and not emotions? If not for you, at least for your kids?

The Happy Cynic said...

I'm having a hard time understanding how you--of all people--turned out to be one of those people who believes everything spoonfed to him. Without bothering to check ALL sources. ALL facts. You were such a free-thinker.

You know--and I'm sure you'll be relieved--I can't come here anymore. I will miss the old Lee that I remember so fondly.

The Happy Cynic said...

And you never told me: What the hell is MSM?

shoo said...

Yeah, nothing so uncomfortable as having your belief system challenged, eh cynic?

MSM is the Main Stream Media. Don't like Sarah Palin and are appalled that she expensed her children's travel? Congratulations! You have successfully reached the conclusion they have been spoon feeding you.

This stuff about the travel expenses is nonsense. All governors of any state would do this. The same as the President travelling with his kids. Do you think that Bush, or Clinton, or any President for that matter doesn't have the government pay for their kids travel when they travel with them on official state business?

First of all Hot Air reported from that Biden was pulled off the trail on October 20th. The day after his affirmation that the US would be attacked if Obama is elected. The hot air item was posted on the 21st. My bad, I should have walked you through it.

I do not trust the MSM (Main stream Media) which is so biased in its reporting even Dan Rather is up in arms. CBS, NBC, ABC, NYT, CNN, MSNBC, are all deep in the tank for Obama. They routinely pick up items on McCain\Palin and bury anything anti-Obama. I also read Huffington Post and Daily KOS as well. And I do check the info if you believe me or not. I have found factcheck.org, newsbuster and Hot air to be great resources.

The Palin story on clothing is just another attack. Of course the RNC bought her clothing, Yes, womens clothing and makeup cost more then a Man’s. A woman cannot appear day after day in the same outfit, If she did I could just see the Catty headlines now! It is the RNC’s job, they did it correctly, they reported it correctly and all the outfits are being donated after Nov 4th. Now if Obama would stay true to his ethics about donations to his campaign. Hmmm, see any articles about Obama buying the election?

I have always been a Conservative Republican, I have always thought that the Government has a tough time doing anything correctly or efficiently. I can never agree with taking something someone earned and giving it to someone else. I have always believed that everyone is created equal and has the chance to succeed or excel by their own merits. I feel we should protect our people and our land as a group. I believe that life begins at conception.

All the sources are not all the facts. Some facts do not come out until down the road. I did vote based upon several facts, and I voted with my youngest in mind, my other two are over 18 and registered, they will vote as they will.

Obama has zero experience and has NEVER made a tough executive decision. Bidens bizarre comments on the trail and his perchance for stealing other peoples work and calling it his own, plus his lack of charitable contributions make me question his fitness. If Obama had chosen Hillary it would have shown me something. Obama votes present, has questionable relationships, a socialist agenda and no credibility.

McCain Palin have much more experience with confronting corruption across party lines and will be stewards of this country.

Those are the facts.

Sorry, I am not relieved you are no longer going to post here. I welcome spirited debate and looking at informed viewpoints. I do not personalize anything political, I guess you do.

You have had zero credible arguments to even begin to sway me. So far your comments look bitter and emotional with disdain for all that is good in this country and the world, more so you seem to have swallowed this information from the MSM hook line and sinker. Further, it is bizarre that just because I disagree with you, I am not informed.

I do miss the Franny that actually cared about people she felt meant something. I hope you find what it is your looking for.

You are welcome back anytime. I just hope you leave your bitter trolling at the door.
