Obama campaign calls photo a ‘smear’

A photograph circulating in the Internet of Democratic Sen. Barack Obama dressed in traditional local garments during a visit to Kenya in 2006 is causing a dustup in the presidential campaign over what constitutes a smear.

The photograph portrays Obama wearing a white turban and a wraparound white robe presented to him by elders in Wajir, in northeastern Kenya. Obama’s estranged late father was Kenyan and Obama visited the country in 2006, attracting thousands of well-wishers.

Playing Politics With Intelligence

As President Bush and his aides reject the accusation that they are playing politics with matters of national intelligence, it’s worth noting that they have done precisely that many times.

Dare we say the “A” word?

“A” as in assassination?

While the article(*) linked below deals with the concerns for Senator Obama, the same has also applied to Senator Clinton. Either of these political figures is a prime target for the ideologically-motivated assassin, and this has doubtlessly led to many a sleepless night for the Secret Service agents detailed to protect them.

Let’s talk about Iraq

I keep hearing that the “surge” is working. So let’s talk about what is really happening POLITICALLY in Iraq that has brought us where we are today.

Contrary to what many people believe, not everyone in Iraq is oblivious as to what is going on in America as well as across the world in attitudes towards Iraq.

There is a prominent Shiite leader of the Shiite Militia called Al Sadr. Al Sadr and his forces was once a targeted enemy of America in Fallujah in the early part of Bush’s invasion.

Do we live in America or Bizzaro world?

The other night I was watching Bill Maher and this GOP congressman from Georgia was among the conservative panel Bill had on.

I could hardly believe the words that came out of this “allegedly” intelligent man.

Among other falsehoods that he came out of his mouth was the allegation that “global warming doesn’t exist” and further “perpetuation of a known internet hoax against Obama as truth.”

I literally had to close my mouth to keep the flies out.

Obama nails Clinton over NAFTA support

Barack Obama accused Democratic presidential rival Hillary Rodham Clinton on Sunday of trying to walk away from a long record of support for NAFTA, the free trade agreement that he said has cost 50,000 jobs in Ohio, site of next week’s primary.

At the same time, he said attempts to repeal the trade deal “would probably result in more job losses than job gains in the United States.”

Democrats want probe of McCain’s finances

The national Democratic party wants campaign finance regulators to investigate whether Sen. John McCain would violate money-in-politics laws by withdrawing from the primary election’s public finance system.

McCain, who had been entitled to $5.8 million in federal funds for the primary, has decided to bypass the system so he can avoid spending limits between now and the GOP’s national convention in September.

Federal Election Commission Chairman David Mason notified McCain last week that he can only withdraw from public financing if he answers questions about a campaign loan and obtains approval from four members of the six-member commission. Such approval is doubtful in the short term because the commission has four vacancies and cannot convene a quorum.

More pilgrims die in another Iraq attack

A roadside bomb killed four Shiite pilgrims and wounded 15 south of Baghdad Monday in at least the third fatal attack on people traveling to one of their sect’s most sacred gatherings, officials said.

The death toll rose from 40 to 56 from a suicide bombing Sunday — one of Iraq’s deadliest attacks this year.

In eastern Baghdad, another roadside bombing wounded three pilgrims. A second bomb that went off a few minutes later about 70 yards away wounded a traffic policeman riding to the scene on his motorcycle.

Hillary’s “bitch factor”* – Hail Mary passes with grenades

Coming from another politician slipping in the polls against someone like Barak Obama, Hillary Clinton’s no more Mrs. Nice Girl brass knuckle attacks would make tactical sense.

Unfortunately for her, her anger has no finesse. She comes across as strident, confirming the "bitch factor"* in many people’s mind. Some people will think she’s trying to beat Muhammad Ali by kicking him in the balls.
