Promises, Promises

“If you have a social need, you’re with Hillary. If you want Obama to be your imaginary hip black friend and you’re young and you have no social needs, then he’s cool.”

John McCain and the Surge Effect VS JOHN McCAIN - INSANITY AT ITS WORST

On the Six O'Clock News on teevee, the nice anchorette refers to John McCain and Hillary Clinton as the "frontrunners" in the nominations race. It is so stupid. After Iowa, the media and the political blogs had the shovels ready to bury Hillary. McCain was regarded with little more than curiousity. Each wins New Hampshire. Suddenly, we have "frontrunners"? This morning NPR ran a segment discussing why the various polls conducted failed to foresee Hillary's NH victory. I've said this before and will say it again: Had Hillary stuck to Plan A and sidestepped Iowa completely, she would have slain the Obama dragon in NH. It was her LOSS in Iowa that siphoned votes away from her and toward Obama in NH. Doesn't anybody get that? I didn't think so.

When it rains, it pours:

Barack Obama, his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination bolstered by endorsements, told a cheering union hall on Friday that he would provide relief for homeowners struggling to make mortgage payments and deliver tax cuts to the middle-class. “We’re going to put money in the pockets of hardworking Americans who deserve it. That’s what I’m fighting for,” Obama told hotel and restaurant workers packed into the steamy union hall of the Culinary Workers Union, Local 226. The Illinois senator said he identified with their economic hardships.

Michelle Malkin: How about identifying with responsible homeowners and responsible taxpayers who’ll be paying for all this election-year largesse–much of it not to Americans “who deserve it,” but to people who shouldn’t have been taking out home loans they couldn’t pay for and mortgage companies that shouldn’t have taken them on as customers?
How about them?

National Polls Show Hillary/Obama Besting The Rs

CNN: Clinton 50%, McCain 48%; McCain 50%, Obama 49%

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
