Double Standards

I would find it amusing, if it was not so insulting, how our wonderful liberal media portray politicians. Why is it that under the perspective of party the same accomplishments or lack thereof will bring stark differences in coverage? What we have is a double standard. When the media sees a conservative they see bad decisions, mediocrity and blind stupidity. When they see liberals they see enlightened and educated scholars who can do no wrong.

Think about these examples: (Thank you Andrew Wilkow)

If you have been serving for over 30 years in Washington:
Conservative- You are what's wrong with Washington and we need new blood.
Liberal - You have experience and provide leadership and example to Washington.

If you are new to Washington with little experience in National politics:
Conservative - You are too inexperienced to do any good and don't know the ins and outs of politics necessary to get anything done.
Liberal - You are the fresh new face for "hope" and "change&quo…

Fair Debate?

So there is a debate on thursday night. a vice Presidential debate no less. And yet the liberal media still has to try and find a way to absolutely crush who they see as the biggest threat to their rise to power. That is Sarah Palin. Catie Couric did a hack job trying to bring her down. And this same media, who blast her like she murdered some newborn baby, wonder why she has limited her press appearances.

So on to the debate. I think she can do great vs. Biden. She has that charm that us regular Americans can relate to. But just in case she may be looking good, they have thrown in a stacked deck. One of the moderators has a book coming out Jan. 20, 2009 (inaguration day) about, who else?, Senator Obama. Yes, she has chosen a side and is set to gain from Obama's election to the presidency. So why is she still slated to 'moderate'? That my friends is the million dollar question.

Oil prices

What is the news story nobody is reporting? Well, one of them anyway is the fact that the price of a barrel of oil is continuing to drop. Today it is reported to be under $100 per barrel. The price per gallon of gas is also dropping. Not as fast as we would all like it but dropping none the less. Near my home it is $3.33 per gallon.

So why are we not hearing stories about this? Is it because that would be like admitting that just the threat of more oil production brings down the price? If we ever actually get the ball rolling on drilling here domestically we can see a speculated price per barrel somewhere around $70 per.

So why are we not pushing for this? Because the media and the liberals(are they the same people) do not want us to know any of this. They are wrong and they know it. But they don't want you to know it.

But we already do.

Here's to an oil drilling ticket. Go McCain/Palin!

It was a quiet morning that September 11, 2001. I for one did not wake up thinking that this day would mark a terrorist attack the likes of which have never been seen before. First one plane hit one of the twin towers. This was big, but it could of been an accident. It had to be an accident, right? We wanted it to be an accident. A terrible accident. But then the second plane hit the second tower. This was no accident.
This was WAR! The very people who had declared war on us many years earlier. Osama Bin Laden had been behind the USS Cole bombing. We did nothing. Terrorists were responsible for kidnappings, beheadings, and US Embassy building suicide bombings. We did nothing. Under
the watchful eye of Bill Clinton, we refused to go after this radical but bold and fearless group of terrorists. We were even offered Bin Laden once. But Bill said he was too much of an 'hot potato' and refused him. And Bill Clinton knew who he was and what he was a part of.
As the twin towers coll…

Attack dogs!

The liberal media has unleashed its attack machine. Is it on Sen. McCain? Are they massing for an attack on his policies? Maybe they are wanting to debate the issues. Nope, nope, nope! What they are doing is absolutely insane. They are attacking the Vice President nominee from the republican party. If it was not so cruel I would laugh at the circus they are creating.



The inbound flights to Alaska have probably tripled in the last week and a half. Nobody was prepared for McCain's VP pick. Especially the liberal democrats. They had their attacks in place for Mitt Romney or any of the other well qualified options available to him. Gov. Palin was a surprise pick on several fronts. They had kept it quiet. And what did that do to the liberals?



It turned them absolutely insane. All of their preparation was for naught. They had nothing.

They still have nothing. But that has not stopped them. Gov Palin has such impeccable credentials. Her approval rating is higher than any other Gov. in the U…

Politics as Usual?

The republican and democratic conventions are over. After Obama's wrap up at the democratic convention, many of his supporters were left very impressed with his speech. I have to hand it to him, he IS a great orator. With a prepared speech, he has a flare to really 'sell' it. It is an ability that not many are blessed with and he has used it to great success.(see his nomination for President)

McCain is simply not the skilled speaker that Obama is. But after watching his speech I was way more impressed. Why? Well, I Just had a sense that he was more telling in who he was and what he stood for.

Obama has stood on the platform for 'change' and has cried that montra through the democratic primaries and now again in the push towards November. What I find amusing about this is that Obama is the direct product of the 'same old political machine' that has produced previous candidates. Obama's ascension is as scripted as they come. The only real change …

Gov Palin Hits a Home Run

Tonight, Gov. Palin gave a speech which was reminiscent of the great and honorable Ronald Reagan. She was warm and vibrant and there with her WHOLE family. The text of her speech in it's entirety follows.


Mr. Chairman, delegates, and fellow citizens: I am honored to be considered for the nomination for vice president of the United States ...
I accept the call to help our nominee for president to serve and defend America.
I accept the challenge of a tough fight in this election ... against confident opponents ... at a crucial hour for our country.
And I accept the privilege of serving with a man who has come through much harder missions ... and met far graver challenges ... and knows how tough fights are won — the next president of the United States, John S. McCain.
It was just a year ago when all the experts in Washington counted out our nominee because he refused to hedge his commitment to the security of the country he loves.
With their usual certitude, they told us that all was los…
