    Woohoo!!! Welcome back, for sure.

    Not sure if anyone watched the Food Network, but I saw an advertisement today that Michelle Obama is going to be on Paula's Party this weekend! You might want to check your local listings for the time...I can't find anything definitive online. And I can't remember from the ad. It's either Friday or Saturday, but I THINK it's Saturday (the 20th). From the previews, it looks like it would be fun to watch! You can watch an Extra! promo for the show on Paula's website:

    And who said Michelle Obama couldn't cook for her family or whatever? (I think it was in the Sarah Palin thread...) Psh...

    The 1st Presidential Debate is scheduled for next Friday, September 26. I don't know the time yet, but it should be interesting given the state of the economy - which has never been McSame's strong point.

    Hehehehe! Such exciting statements. Thanks for sharing! I especially like the "Ultimate 'Bridge to Nowhere'". Tehe!

    And hmm...Maybe McCain should use the economic crisis as an opportunity to show his true knowledge on the matter. Oh, wait... :/

    Default A Conservative for Obama

    A Conservative for Obama
    My party has slipped its moorings. It’s time for a true pragmatist to lead the country.

    http://www.dmagazine.com/ME2/dirmod....A3EF81822D9F8E

    "THE MORE I LISTEN TO AND READ ABOUT “the most liberal member of the U.S. Senate,” the more I like him. Barack Obama strikes a chord with me like no political figure since Ronald Reagan. To explain why, I need to explain why I am a conservative and what it means to me.

    In 1964, at the age of 16, I organized the Dallas County Youth for Goldwater. My senior thesis at the University of Texas was on the conservative intellectual revival in America. Twenty years later, I was invited by William F. Buckley Jr. to join the board of National Review. I later became its publisher.
    <>
    Most important, Obama will be a realist. I doubt he will taunt Russia, as McCain has, at the very moment when our national interest requires it as an ally. The crucial distinction in my mind is that, unlike John McCain, I am convinced he will not impulsively take us into another war unless American national interests are directly threatened.

    “Every great cause,” Eric Hoffer wrote, “begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket.” As a cause, conservatism may be dead. But as a stance, as a way of making judgments in a complex and difficult world, I believe it is very much alive in the instincts and predispositions of a liberal named Barack Obama."

    Seems that Barack Obama DOES connect with women because he does understand their issues, and backs legislation to support them.

    (CNN) — Rep. Wayne Gilchrest, the Maryland Republican who lost a heated primary challenge earlier this year, said Friday he's endorsing Democrat Barack Obama's White House bid.

    Gilchrest, who has served in the House for close to two decades, told a Maryland radio station Obama and his running mate Sen. Joe Biden have the experience needed for the job.

    Default Taking Professor Obama's Class

    Taking Professor Obama's Class
    http://www.time.com/time/politics/ar...ef=werecommend

    "As the presidential race heats up and Democratic nominee Barack Obama is forced to respond to increasingly tough attacks from the Palin-energized GOP ticket, his campaign style is coming under growing scrutiny. Some feel the candidate has too often been more head than heart, more intellectual than passionate, less a leader than a lecturer. Will his style survive the rough-and-tumble of a modern media-saturated presidential campaign?

    Yet balancing the two personae — professor and politician — has been key to Obama's success. Much of his style can be traced back to his dozen years as an academic, at the University of Chicago Law School. A look at those teaching days reveals just how he has managed to be at once popular and intellectually exacting.

    By most accounts, Obama's time at the law school was a huge success. He arrived in 1992, fresh out of Harvard Law School, to juggle teaching courses in constitutional law and race theory. Within a few years, he had become a rock-star professor with hordes of devoted students, written a popular book and launched a political career as an Illinois state senator."

    There He Goes Again

    McCain ad misrepresents Obama's tax plan. Again.

    http://www.factcheck.org/elections-2...oes_again.html


    "The McCain-Palin campaign has released a new ad that once again distorts Obama's tax plans.

    * The ad claims Obama will raise taxes on electricity. He hasn't proposed any such tax. Obama does support a cap-and-trade policy that would raise the costs of electricity, but so does McCain.

    * It falsely claims he would tax home heating oil. Actually, Obama proposed a rebate of up to $1,000 per family to defray increased heating oil costs, funded by what he calls a windfall profits tax on oil companies.

    * The ad claims that Obama will tax "life savings." In fact, he would increase capital gains and dividends taxes only for couples earning more than $250,000 per year, or singles making $200,000. For the rest, taxes on investments would remain unchanged."

    Hey, we're back! I don't know why I was having problems until today. Looks like things have been back for a while.

    Tonight I attended a strategy meeting at our local DNC headquarters. We are fired up! I can't even begin to say how exciting it was to see so many people ready to turn our state blue. This is one motivated campaign! I signed up to do data entry. I was most interested in doing this because I'm all about understanding the numbers right now. And our numbers are looking better everyday. We're actually doing non-partisan voter registration so this won't conflict with volunteers that aren't able to participate in campaigns for whatever reason. Either way, every voter that we register is more likely to help us in November.

    Alert The Push to ‘Otherize’ Obama

    The Push to ‘Otherize’ Obama

    http://www.nytimes.com/2008/09/21/op...th&oref=slogin

    "Here’s a sad monument to the sleaziness of this presidential campaign: Almost one-third of voters “know” that Barack Obama is a Muslim or believe that he could be.

    In short, the political campaign to transform Mr. Obama into a Muslim is succeeding. The real loser as that happens isn’t just Mr. Obama, but our entire political process.

    A Pew Research Center survey released a few days ago found that only half of Americans correctly know that Mr. Obama is a Christian. Meanwhile, 13 percent of registered voters say that he is a Muslim, compared with 12 percent in June and 10 percent in March.

    More ominously, a rising share — now 16 percent — say they aren’t sure about his religion because they’ve heard “different things” about it. "

    Ain't that America???

    CNN Poll: GOP takes brunt of blame for economy, Obama gains

    http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com...ancial-crisis/

    [WASHINGTON (CNN) – A new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Poll suggests that by a 2-to-1 margin, Americans blame Republicans over Democrats for the financial crisis that has swept across the country the past few weeks — one factor that may have contributed to an apparent increase in Barack Obama’s edge over John McCain in the race for the White House.

    In the new survey, released Monday afternoon, 47 percent of registered voters questioned say Republicans are more responsible for the problems currently facing financial institutions and the stock market, with 24 percent saying Democrats are more responsible. One in five of those polled blame both parties equally, and 8 percent say neither party is to blame.]

    Democrats widen lead in battle for Congress
    http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com...-for-congress/

    "So which party has the upper hand in the fight for Capitol Hill?

    The answer, according to a new national poll, appears to be the Democrats. In a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey released Tuesday, 56 percent of those questioned are backing the Democratic candidate for Congress, while 42 percent support the Republicans.

    That's a change from immediately after the GOP convention, when the Democrats had only a 3-point lead lead over the Republicans, 49 percent to 46 percent."

    Could it be that Americans are starting to think for themselves?

    Economic fears give Obama a clear lead in poll
    Survey gives Democrat a 9-point edge over McCain among likely voters

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26862018/

    "Turmoil in the financial industry and growing pessimism about the economy have altered the shape of the presidential race, giving Democratic nominee Barack Obama the first clear lead of the general-election campaign over Republican John McCain, according to the latest Washington Post-ABC News national poll.

    <>
    More voters trust Obama to deal with the economy, and he currently has a big edge as the candidate who is more in tune with the economic problems Americans now face. He also has a double-digit advantage on handling the current problems on Wall Street, and as a result, there has been a rise in his overall support. The poll found that, among likely voters, Obama now leads McCain by 52 percent to 43 percent. Two weeks ago, in the days immediately following the Republican National Convention, the race was essentially even, with McCain at 49 percent and Obama at 47 percent."

    I was just watching CNN on my lunch break. McCain is calling on Obama to suspend the campaign and delay the debates due to the financial crisis. So after an entire year of market uncertainty, now, just before the debates on domestic issues he wants to return to Washington to work on the problem. What's that clucking I hear?

    They're awaiting Obama's statement. Apparently Obama called McCain and asked him if he wanted to issue a joint statement on the financial crisis this morning. I say they both return to Washington and still debate. The topic is more relevant now than ever and I really want to know where they stand. Don't hole up now.

    The bailout deal is dead in the water according to a Republican from Texas. They don't have the votes. Let's see what Congress can come up with now.

    I agree with you...I don't think they should delay the debates. I, more than ever, want to hear what each side (especially McSame) has to say (or not say) about the economy. AND OTHER ISSUES, too. And the sooner the better. With it being this close to election, I think it's in everyone's best interests to go ahead with the debates. But that's just my two little cents. Yes, we're at an economic crisis, but like you said...it's been building up for a long, long time. I don't see why they should hold everything up for this right now. What they have to say about the issues (including the economy!) is way more important to me at this minute. Why not even hold everything up AFTER the first debate? Perhaps I'm just impatient, but I really feel like I need to see this first debate to really get a clearer picture in my mind of what's really going on. (Especially with all of the crazy media stuff floating around.)

    Here is a partial response:
    "I am calling on the president to convene a meeting with the leadership from both houses of Congress, including Senator Obama and myself," McCain told reporters in New York. "It is time for both parties to come together to solve this problem." Video Watch McCain's announcement »

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid issued a statement saying the presidential debate should go on and that McCain's negotions should not be a "photo op."

    "It would not be helpful at this time to have them come back during these negotiations and risk injecting presidential politics into this process or distract important talks about the future of our nation's economy," the statement said. "We need leadership, not a campaign photo op."

    "If there were ever a time for both candidates to hold a debate before the American people about this serious challenge, it is now," he added."

    OMG! I think I 'get' it

    Let me correct myself. I believe the debates were originally to be on domestic issues, but the Obama campaign negotiated to have it changed to foreign policy because they didn't want race to become an issue in the debate in Oxford, Mississippi.

    I think Obama should have offered to have Biden debate Palin on Friday.
