Only one week to go!

This has been a long election year, and we are finally down to the wire with only one week to go until the day of reckoning. On that day there is a distinct possibility that we could get one of the most far-left presidents in American history named Barack Obama, and conservatives need to be ready and prepared for that. but unlike the New Mexico Sun news paper who declared Obama the winner already; i think this election is not over till its over, and McCain has a good chance at a win.

Excluding Iowa and New Mexico if McCain wins all of the states that Bush won in 2004 then Hello president McCain. He could also pull off an upset in Pennsylvania, and that would clinch an election victory for him. Either way McCain has options even though the unreliable polls have him as the underdog.

So for all of you conservatives out there one week out from this historical election, don't get discouraged,Don't buy everything you see or hear in the Mainstream media ,and come election day get out there and VOTE,VOTE,VOTE!

Should we trust the National polls?

The national polls are all over the map, as we all probably know by now. An associated press-GfK poll has Obama at..... 44 to McCain's..... 43 Giving Obama only a one point lead. A pew poll has it at Obama ...53 to McCain's .....39 a 14 point advantage for Obama, so this is a very wide range that we should be suspicious of. and keep in mind, So far in this election the national polls have been wrong.

In the democratic primary three weeks before Clinton conceded, some Polls had Obama up by 26 points. The last realclearpolitics average for the primary had Obama up by 12.2 points.http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2008/president/us/democratic_presidential_nomination-191.html but there was one big problem for Obama, he won the popular vote by less than 1 percentage point. In this case the national polls were way off, and they overestimated Obamas victory against Clinton.

The moral of the story is that the national polls have done a terrible job so far in this election, so why should we believe them now! Polls should be used as a reference, but not as an absolute reality for any election.......especially this one .

Vote for Osama?

Some people might actually have to vote for "Barack Osama" because of some voting irregularities. I came across this story an couldn't stop laughing. http://timesunion.com/AspStories/story.asp?storyID=731727 Maybe if there are more of these mistakes it will be harder for people to vote for Osama, one can always hope.

Ohio secretary of state website hacked.

Jennifer brunner, the Secretary of state for Ohio, reported that the state website was hacked so it was partially shut down. It is not known if any confidential information have been taken from the site as of now, but an investigation is under way. The site won't be fully functional until the investigation is finished. but Before we start feeling sorry For Jennifer Brunner, we should take into account that she recently admitted that 200,000 voter registrations could possibly be fraudulent citing some of the info in the registration records don't match. In spite of this possible voter fraud, she has been fighting the state GOP and recently won in the supreme court regarding the 200'000 possibly fraudulent registrations. So this means that the state of Ohio doesn't need to update there voter registration, or check the voter information to guard against voter fraud. It looks like this is the mess you get when Democrats take control. God help us on November 4!

A letter to Colin Powell!

Well, General Powell, you have endorsed Barack Obama, and I'm still scratching my head as to why you would do such a thing. How could you possibly support the most liberal senator and his VP the third most liberal senator on the heels of democrats possibly getting a supermajority in the congress? How could you support a man that has associations with William Ayers,Reverend Wright,ACORN and who was endorsed by Louis Farrakhan? How could you support a man with such a thin resume, a one term senator with no record of accomplishment, a man with no military experience or executive experience? How could you support a man that looks down on small town Americans calling them bitter and clinging to guns and religion? How could you support a man who's political machine smears a hard working American, a Plumber by the name of Joe? How could you support a man that wants to sit down without preconditions with Holocaust deniers and socialist dictators? How could you support a man that wants to raise the Americans peoples taxes and plummet this country into more debit?

I just have one last Question for you General Powell, how could you?

The polls are tightening folks!

Obama had better think twice before measuring those white house curtains! Recent polls show a tightening race, a Gallup poll of likely voters (traditional) has it at 49 Obama/47 McCain, and another Gallup poll of likely voter (expanded) has it at 50 Obama/46 McCain. Zogby has it at 47.8 Obama/45.1 McCain, and zogby hasn’t had Obama up by more than 6.2 points in the last 8 days. So a bit of good news, it's not over yet.

"Joe the plumber" represents heartland American values.

When John McCain looked into the camera and spoke to Joe the plumber, he wasn't just speaking to Joe, he was speaking to every hard working American that doesn't want their taxes raised,their national defence weakened, or their country turned into Western Europe. At first, i wasn't sure if it was a good idea to bring Joe into the debate, but the media coverage today has made me think twice.

Joe the plumber (real name Samuel joseph wurzelbacher) is a guy from Ohio and is now a bit of a media sensation, at least for now. Joe has given several interviews, some of them blasting Obama on his tax increase proposals in a way that people can relate to and identify with. Joe speaks for the working man, because he is the working man, and he isn't swayed by Obamas slick ways and lies about tax cuts.

When McCain brought Joe into the debate, he brought all of us into the debate, and i think that Joe the Plumber might be the gift that keeps on giving.

The debate is over..... now what?

Another debate and another less than stellar performance by McCain. He threw a few punches, but they just didn't seem to stick, and most snap polls and focus groups after the debate scored Obama the winner. McCain did however try to distance himself from the Bush administration by saying "I'm not president bush. if you want to run against president bush you should have run four years ago" that was the most memorable line of the night.

McCain also tried to question the ACORN and Ayers connection to Obama, and Obama seemed to weasel his way out of it, but McCain didn't follow up. After watching the debate i,m at a loss for words. I'm not sure were McCain goes from here. What can McCain do if anything to take the lead from Obama. The only thing i can think of is for the McCain camp to get the base out on November 4, and hope that the undecideds go with a familiar face in McCain and not take the risk with the new guy Obama. I guess we just have to keep a positive attitude and pray for the best.

Obama is outspending McCain, and so did Romney.

In the area of T.V advertising the Obama campaign is outspending McCain by a considerable margin. In the first week of October Obama spent 21 million on advertising compared to McCain and the RNC spending 12 million.
Obama is also outspending in most of the swing states, and he recently bought 30 minuets of prime time television for October 29th. The Obama camp is also expected to have nearly 100 million in the bank by election day. but the question is how much dose all of this matter.

I think that it's safe to say that having more money is a good thing, but it's not going to win Obama the election alone, just ask Mitt Romney about that. Mitt Romney outspent McCain in new Hampshire 7.3 million to 3.5 million, and McCain defeated Romney handily in New Hampshire. Romney also spent more money Overall in the republican primary until he got out of the race, so money isn't everything. McCain might be down in the polls, and he might be down in money, but he's been there before and came out on top, and he can do it again.

If Felons could vote, who would they vote for?

2008 seems like the year of voter fraud with all of the stories coming out about ACORN and the multitude of dead people registered to vote in Texas (over 4000 in Houston alone),so it shouldn't be a surprise that felons are registered to vote in Florida. From the drudge report The sun Sentinel paper is reporting that some 30,000 felons (some of whom are still in prison) are eligible to vote in Florida. The Florida Secretary of state Kurt Browning blames it on lack of staff to deal with the large amount of new voters registering.

The interesting thing about this situation is that the felons are registered as democrats 2 to 1 over republicans. Wow, is anybody surprised that Criminals would find a home with the democratic platform of no personal responsibility and a blame society attitude. While the Military overwhelmingly supports republicans, criminals support democrats, need i say more.http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/local/southflorida/sfl-flbfelons1012sboct12,0,3762352.story

Sarah Palin set to be on SNL!

Good news for the McCain ticket, Sarah Palin will be on Saturday night live on the 25th of October. Hopefully this will give the McCain ticket a little bump going into election day. Now i know that SNL isn't going to put McCain into the white house, but it will put Palin back into the news, and when she dominates the news McCain seems to do better.

There will also be a few extra million people watching that Saturday night live just because Palin is in it; and I'm sure she will give a good performance reminding people why they like her down to earth personality. So on October 25th millions of eyes will be on palin again and this can only help the McCain ticket. good luck Sarah!

Maybe the Obama machine isn't so efficient.

Early voting in Ohio from September 30 to October 6 did not yield the results that were expected. This window for early voting included people that would register the same day as they cast there ballot. It was expected that possibly hundreds of thousands of people would be a part of the early voting, and everybody thought that Obama was going to have an army of young people and homeless to line up to vote for the change giving Obama.

Well it wasn't an army, it was closer to a division, only 28'000 turned out to vote in the early voting. Maybe the Obama machine is not as well oiled as we once thought. Maybe those young voters won't show up after all. With Obama having such high expectations of motivating people this news dose not bode well for him. It is also true that McCain did not get votes out either, but Obama is depending on getting the new voter out in order for him to win.

This Ohio early voting news is significant, and it is one ray of sunshine in a lot of darkness for McCain in the last couple of weeks.

The McCain ticket is playing hard ball now!

At a rally in Carson California Sarah Palin brought up Barack Obama's association with terrorist William Ayers to a crowd of thousands, and It's about time. The McCain camp is taking the off the gloves and hitting hard, and now all they have to do is keep hitting.

In Colorado at a campaign stop McCain was asked by a supporter when he was going to take the gloves off, McCain Replied "How about Tuesday night?".The town hall debate is Tuesday night and I Hope McCain follows up with His statement to the supporter. If he doesn't there aren't going to be too many opportunities left for him to capitalize on.

There is only a month left in this election so not a lot of time to make up the drop in the polls that McCain is dealing with. Most polls have him down by 6 to 8 points, so he has to remind people that Obama has a lot of skeleton's in his closet namely William Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, and Tony Resko. 20 years in Jeremiah wright's church, Launching his political career in the home of a terrorist William Ayers, and getting his house from convicted felon Tony Resko should be enough to sink Obama. People just need to be reminded of these associations of Obama,and McCain needs to remind them.

Sarah stopped the downward spiral. Thank God!

Sarah Palin did her job and stopped the downward spiral that the McCain camp was facing. She delivered, and she proved once again that she was just the right pick for the VP slot with last nights performance in the debate.

She was able to relate to the people on a personal level and to connect with everyday Americans in a way that left Joe Biden in the dust. She proved that she had enough knowledge with the issues to go toe to toe with Joe Biden, but still remain a fresh face and one that is not entrenched with inside Washington politics. Most importantly there were no gaffes or blunders and she wiped away some of the recent interviews that did not go so well.

Now is up to McCain in the debate on Tuesday to go on the attack and to put a little fire in his belly. Palin can't carry the ticket alone its up to McCain to step up.
