    Murmers of Reagan Democrats. 

    You tell me. Early voting seems to point to the polls being way off. While it’s far too early to say, The Los Angeles Times seems a bit scared anyway.

    I Sinned My Way In, I’m Gonna Buy My Way Out 

    We live in a country where people get elected based on what they promise to their constituents. Good, socially-conscious Democrats must be continually reminding people what the country can do for them.

    Wouldn’t it be great, for example, if the government could make sure every American has access to affordable housing. Of course, if we as a country wanted to subsidize housing for the poor we could easily do so directly. The problem is it would cost a fortune and most Americans still aren’t ready to go along with this kind of overt transfer of wealth.

    If we’re going to socialize this country we have to do so under the radar. Don’t worry, I have a plan:

    Obama campaign criticized for dishonest ad 

    A recent, Obama-endorsed ad has drawn a great deal of criticism for both dishonesty when it comes to John McCain’s stance on immigration, and misconstruing a quote by Rush Limbaugh.

    The Bruce thinks that Obama is cleverly attempting to open a discussion on McCain’s actual stance on immigration, which has often not aligned with the conservative base.

    What Obama fails to grasp is that conservatives are well aware of McCain’s liberal record and that right wingers are  in fact consciously choosing to let it slide due to his choice of Sarah Palin as his running mate.

      In all fairness, Obama is not winning the 2-way competition for most scathing TV advert.

      Did you see the one about Obama corrupting kindergarteners? link

    Barack Obama, The Liberal Media, and Race in America 

    So here is yet another story on race – in this instance applied to US demographics. This newest installment of the ongoing narrative entitled “White Guilt” or “Race in America” or “Barack the Magic Negro” has got me thinking. The Bruce firmly believes that America is a classless society and that most American citizens believe this as well. Of course, according to our friends in the liberal media we DO, a line which has served Democrats, like Barack Obama well.

    Democrats have been using race and class (i.e. race and class warefare or envy) for years, it’s something of a standard in the Democratic playbook. This strategy has served them moderatly well in that it has won them many a vote, however just as stated above, I refuse to believe that the majority of Americans believe in class or practice racism in any way whatsoever. This is evidenced by a hit and miss record for the Democrats when it comes to winning national elections.

    The 2008 Presidential elections and the advent of Barack Obama have torn this issue wide open for obvious reasons and early on in the primary cycle Obama spoke on race quite often and in The Bruce’s opinion was one of two reasons he clinched the nomination. (The other being his young, hip, eloquent style) This annoys me. Particularly if the trend continues as we near the 2008 presidential elections. Obama’s commentary on race seem to have toned down a bit, perhaps as a result of John McCain calling him to the carpet the last time he brought the subject up – perhaps because his believers in the mainstream media have stopped reporting it – hard to say.

    This is running long so I’m going to get to the point here: Barack Obama is an inexperienced, standard issue, left wing, uber liberal and there is a large fraction of Americans who understand and are adamantly against this – made clear by his inability to pull ahead of John McCain in the polls. And if you remember one thing from this post, remember you heard it here first: If in November, Obama loses to McCain here’s the theme you’re going to see: “Americans aren’t ready to elect a black president.”

    Experience? The issues? I’m sure they have nothing to do with it.

      “I refuse to believe that the majority of Americans believe in class or practice racism in any way whatsoever”

      You my friend have obviously never seen the musical Avenue Q, which has a song entitled “Everyone’s a Little Bit Racist”
