« Ex-Congressional Staffer Pleads Guilty to Selling Influence | Main | Seymour Hersh: Cheney's "Executive Assassination Ring" »

March 11, 2009



Might I mention there was a poll that went with Fineman's article asking to grade Obama's first 50 days? I understand Instapundit launched a freep of this poll yesterday. Just for the fun of it, why don't we freep them back?


Bravo, bravo, Bill! So true. I hope Obama is listening, but after his recent dismissal of criticisms coming from "blogs," I am not sanguine.

He definitely needs to wake up from his trance and smell the worsening situation before he steps in it.


Or, maybe, Seize the Moment, Senator McCain?

"President Obama seems to be undergoing a strange metamorphosis. He's slowly turning into John McCain.

1) Last Thursday, Obama told a group of CEOs he would consider cutting corporate taxes. Candidate McCain was for a corporate tax cut.

2) On Friday, Obama seemed to channel McCain's famous campaign quote that "the fundamentals of the economy are sound." The exact Obama statement: "If we are keeping focused on all the fundamentally sound aspects of our economy, all the outstanding companies, workers, all the innovation, and dynamism in this country, then we're going to get through this."

3) Today the New York Times reports that Obama would be open to taxing employee healthcare benefits to help pay for healthcare reform. McCain proposed the same thing, along with a tax credit to assist workers in purchasing their own health insurance.

Can a capital gains tax cut be far behind?"

Who Really Won, Obama or McCain?
