In the News: 19th October 2008


Interesting day in political news, we have Obama saying that he is going to change the world, lofty goals indeed, 45% of the electorate doesn't buy it for a minute, Colin Powell seems to, and Madame Screecher getting all hot and bothered about Barry.

Barack Obama vows to 'change the world'
By Toby Harnden, Telegraph-The supremely confident demeanor and exalted rhetoric of the Democratic nominee at a New Hampshire event betrayed that he is a man convinced he is poised to make history.

While his Republican opponent John McCain, trailing in the polls, is pursuing a strategy of eking out a victory in traditional swing states, Mr Obama is transferring resources to conservative strongholds like Georgia, West Virginia and even Kentucky in pursuit of a landslide victory.

Speaking in an apple orchard against the picture-perfect New England backdrop of an red, green and yellow autumn foliage on a stage adorned with pumpkins and hay bales, Mr Obama reminded voters of the dangers of hubris. Read more...
Lofty goals indeed. Sorry, I am not buying what ole' Barry is selling. We joke about Liberals being socialists, we know philosophically they are not. Nevertheless, what they seem to not understand is that they have the very Far Left of their party taking charge. That Far Left's arrogance and hubris is demonstrated in statements like this and that is dangerous. I truly do not think Senator Obama knows what he is getting into.

Obama's lead slips to 3 points
Andrew Quinn, Reuters - Democrat Barack Obama's lead over Republican John McCain in the presidential race has dropped to 3 points, according to a Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby poll released on Sunday.

Obama leads McCain by 48 to 45 percent among likely U.S. voters, down 1 percentage point from Saturday. The four-day tracking poll, which has a margin of error of 2.9 points.

Pollster John Zogby said the numbers were good news for McCain, and probably reflected a bump following his appearance in the third and final presidential debate on Wednesday. Read more...
Seems that a lot of people are not buying that Obama will change the world. If his victory is not a sweeping landslide, it will not be the mandated change people are claiming. Many on the Left are trying to perpetuate the myth that a vast many Americans want Liberal change. I do not buy it. Do they want change? Yes, they do. But this 3-5% of the electorate is not going to get the change they were looking for if Liberals are running everything. Look at what happened when the Republicans got drunk with power. The Liberals will be worse, in my opinion.

Powell endorses Obama for president
WASHINGTON - Former Secretary of State Colin Powell endorsed Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., for president on Sunday, criticizing his own Republican Party for what he called its narrow focus on irrelevant personal attacks over a serious approach to challenges he called unprecedented.

Powell, who for many years was considered the most likely candidate to become the first African-American president, said in an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that he was not supporting Obama because of his race. He said he had watched both Obama and his Republican opponent, Sen. John McCain of Arizona, for many months and thought “either one of them would be a good president.” Read more...

I still have a great deal of respect for former Secretary of State Powell, as an elder statesmen, a general, and an American. His intellect is far above that of his peers and his wisdom usually sound. However on this one he is drastically wrong. I must remind the Left, before the jump up and down, he was the main reason we went to war in Iraq, remember the UN speech? One is left to wonder if he is not atoning, in his own mind, for what he perceives he did wrong in the Bush administration.

Pelosi: 100% Barack's Gonna Win
By Jeff Dufour and Patrick Gavin, are only 15 days left until Election Day, which means that pundits and pols will be busy predicting who will win come November 4.

We caught up with Speaker Nancy Pelosi at Georgetown's Café Milano Friday night and she didn't pull any punches.

"100% Barack Obama is going to win!" she told Yeas & Nays. "He's going to be our next president and a great president at that. We're all excited to work with him."Read more...
If this is not a good enough reason not to vote for Obama then I do not know what is. Anything this nitwit is for I am vehemently against.


Well that is it for today, it was all Obama all the time today here at PCT. Hope you enjoyed.


"Happy Hunting!"
