Barack Obama: please choose Tim Kaine as your vice presidential candidate - 07/28/08

If I have any pull with the Barack Obama campaign - and I know I do - I urge them to select Virginia governor Tim Kaine as their vice presidential candidate. And, I do so because Kaine is a veritable genius. But, it's not just that. He's also known for making intelligent nominations to state panels. And, he can be counted on to keep the votes flowing in. Obama/Kaine '08!

Is my.barackobama.com trollproof? No, you just need to work at it - 07/28/08

... "Bill Hawkins" started a blog at Barack Obama's site and posted an entry (my.barackobama.com/page/community/blog/billhawkins) entitled "Which hate sites should be banned?" The post suggested that BHO take his push to drive hate off the airwaves to the Internet as well, and solicited BHO fans to list some sites that should be banned. Perhaps as a coincidence, I saw this post immediately and...

Barack Obama's "scary globalist" speech (Berlin, Germany) - 07/24/08

Barack Obama spoke in Berlin, Germany today in what shall be called (by me at least) his "scary globalist" speech. I'll leave it to specialists to discuss the rest, but here are some of his prepared remarks: ...the burdens of global citizenship continue to bind us together. A change of leadership in Washington will not lift this burden. In this new century, Americans and Europeans alike will be...

More proof of GOP stupidity (Digg division) - 07/23/08

... example of how the Democrats and Barack Obama are eating John McCain's lunch. In the US Elections 2008 subsection on Digg right now, almost all of the popular and "hot" (upcoming) stories are anti-McCain, a couple are anti-GOP in general, and almost all the rest are pro-Obama. Not a single pro-McCain story makes either list. And, several are from the Huffington Post.

Obama camp implies healthcare plan doesn't include illegal aliens; another lie? - 07/22/08

... highlight his contention that Barack Obama's healthcare proposal covers illegal aliens. Lester Feder at the Huffington Post asked the BHO campaign about this: David Cutler, senior health care adviser to the Obama campaign, says Morris's argument flies in the face of the plain language of the Obama plan.

Dick Morris: McCain should stress that Obama's healthcare plan covers illegal aliens - 07/21/08

... talking points should be that Barack Obama's universal healthcare plan covers illegal aliens. He has a point, but as he himself admits McCain is probably too wimpy to mention that out of the misguided belief that - since the NCLR would disapprove - he'd hurt himself with the largely mythical Hispanic vote.

Are you an embarrassment to Barack Obama? Take the quiz and find out! - 07/20/08

Shaun Casey, Barack Obama's faith advisor, supports illegal immigration, engages in false compassion - 07/19/08

... surprise there. Late last month, the Barack Obama campaign hired Shaun Casey - a professor at Washington DC's Wesley Theological Seminary - as a religious affairs advisor. His exact title varies from report to report, but he'll be leading their outreach to evangelicals. And, he'll be stressing leftwing to far-left topics.

American allegedly assaulted at National Latino Congreso - 07/19/08

A small number of people from the group No More Invasion protested in front of the National Latino Congreso/National Latino Congress yesterday, and one of their elderly female members was allegedly assaulted during the protest. There are pictures here. The LAPD arrested someone for the assault, and based on the picture and the text he appears to be from a group of anarchists/far-lefties who...

Obama favored over McCain at NCLR meet, PWW reports (Fairness Doctrine) - 07/15/08

... convention where John McCain and Barack Obama spoke: "Incredibly, McCain did not even address the issues of the war in Iraq or his policy on health care. On immigration it was more of the same: secure the borders and no stop to the raids," said Angela Sambrano, an NCLR board member and director of the National Alliance of Latin-American and Caribbean Communities. ...Irene Godinez, 26, of...

John McCain at National Council of La Raza convention (charter schools, immigration "reform") - 07/14/08

... immigration raids?] Yesterday, Barack Obama spoke at the National Council of La Raza convention. Today, it's John McCain's turn to pander to that far-left, extremist-funding, racist-awarding group, and his prepared remarks are here. "La Raza runs one of the largest housing counseling programs in the country that has helped tens of thousands of Latinos become homeowners with secure mortgages."...

Barack Obama praises **Enrique Morones** - 07/14/08

Even I am shocked by how far Barack Obama is willing to take Hispandering and support for illegal activity. Before reading the script for his speech to the National Council of La Raza convention (the one where he accused his own government of terrorizing people), he praised open borders loon Enrique Morones (link): Obama, at the podium, had just thanked two top NCLR officials before his speech...

Barack Obama at National Council of La Raza convention (ICE as terrorists) - 07/13/08

Barack Obama spoke at the National Council of La Raza convention earlier today. See below for more on the NCLR. BHO's prepared remarks are here. BHO said many of the things he's said before; apparently his scriptwriters engaged in a lot of copy-and-paste.

Barack Obama's "civilian national security force" (????) - 07/12/08

Back on July 2, Barack Obama read his "public service" address, and it contained this line that hasn't received much notice: "We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set... We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded." What the Sam Hill? There's nothing at his...

Barack Obama: "I ended up loving Texas!... It is fun to be in Fargo" (Jeff Zeleny/NYT) - 07/09/08

The exact motivations for the Jeff Zeleny/New York Times article "As America Learns About Obama, He Returns the Favor" (link) aren't clear. I don't know whether he thinks he's doing him a favor, or whether his bosses have realized that BHO needs more experience before being selected for something and are trying to get him to withdraw from the race. However, in the recount of his travels across...

Barack Obama wants a bilingual, English-Spanish U.S. (+more American bashing) - 07/08/08

One of Barack Obama's most shocking statements was issued earlier today at a high school in Powder Springs, Georgia, where he said, among other things, the following (link): "We live in a global economy. And, you know, I don't understand when people are going around worrying about, 'We need to have English- only.' They want to pass a law, 'We want English-only'... Now, I agree that immigrants...

Barack Obama's LULAC speech (another lie; overload!) - 07/08/08

Barack Obama spoke to the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) earlier today. Some of his remarks were already covered here. The facts the MSM won't tell you about LULAC are here. A pre-convention BHO lie is here. However, there's much more. In fact, too much, but I'll try. Thank you, Mayor.

Barack Obama proud of attending immigration march (LULAC, Mexican government) - 07/08/08

Barack Obama's prepared remarks for his speech at the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) convention include him taking pride in having marched in support of illegal immigration at the Chicago event on May 1, 2006. Unfortunately, no one has yet asked him why he'd be proud of marching at an event whose main organizers have links to the Mexican government.

Barack Obama lies yet again (uninsured Hispanics, healthcare for illegal aliens) - 07/07/08

Barack Obama seems to think that just pandering isn't enough, he has to lie while doing it.

Obama, McCain, Clinton at LULAC convention (illegal immigration supporters; reconquista quote) - 07/07/08

Barack Obama, John McCain, and even Hillary Clinton will all be speaking at this year's convention of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), an illegal immigration-supporting group that was once patriotic but has since been radicalized.

Eli Saslow/WaPo lies in support of Barack Obama - 06/30/08

... Washington Post lies in support of Barack Obama while giving him a front page advertisement in the story "In Flag City USA, False Obama Rumors Are Flying" (link).

Commission on Presidential Debates releases sham debate proposal - 06/26/08

... won the BOSA, also known as the Barack Obama Sycophant Award, the Toady, the Yglesias, and other names too numerous to mention!

From this: In an interview with Fortune to be featured in the magazine's upcoming issue, the presumptive Democratic nominee backed off his harshest attacks on the free trade agreement and indicated he didn't want to unilaterally reopen negotiations on NAFTA.

Barack Obama, the Chicago politician (moves DNC) - 06/12/08

Barack Obama is moving parts of the Democratic National Committee ("DNC") to Chicago. While it's a wonderful town aside from being flat as a pancake, it's known for very dirty politics (in U.S. terms). So, Obama should fit right in.
