Impartial??? PBS Anchor and Debate Moderator Gwen Ifill in the Tank for Obama, her Book … “Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama.”
How more obvious must it be that the partisan MSM will stop at nothing for an Obama win? That coupled with a conflict of interest and a monetary incentive to see one side win. Some things are just so glaringly wrong, they are beyond comprehension that it is even plausible.
Obama & Ifill … Ifill on Sarah Palin
When is enough, enough? It is bad enough that we are witness every day to the bias of the main stream media as they cover this election. It is no question to anyone that the MSM is not in the tank for Barack Obama. Now we are presented with this glaring and reprehensible display of partisanship prior to Thursday nights VP Debate. Not only is there the issue of bias, but one of a conflict of interest where Ifill has financial motivation for an Obama win. As the Gateway Pundit simply puts it, UNREAL!!!
Gwen Ifill is the one who decides on questions that will be asked candidates, let alone the tone of the debate. With a financial incentive and an already known political bias, of course this will be a fair and balanced debate. However, how dare anyone question her motives or Obama … you will be branded a racist.
From Classic Values and the truth is stranger than fiction category, “Palin/Biden Debate Moderator Author Of Pro-Obama Book. I know you can’t make this stuff up because you don’t have to.”
Gwen Ifill, the PBS anchor and moderator for the VP Debate is in the tank for Obama. Impartial, huh … Ifill has written a book that will be released around the election entitled, “Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama.”
In THE BREAKTHROUGH, veteran journalist Gwen Ifill surveys the American political landscape, shedding new light on the impact of Barack Obama’s stunning presidential campaign and introducing the emerging young African American politicians forging a bold new path to political power.

Family of Fallen Soldier Sergeant Ryan David Jopek Told Barack “Me Too” Obama Not to Wear Their Son’s Bracelet … Barack Exploits Name Anyhow
Here is some more change you can believe in … Not only does Obama forget the name of the fallen soldiers bracelet he is wearing … but the family had told him to stop wearing it. Hey, Barack … if you are going to exploit a fallen soldier, maybe, just maybe you might want to commit that heros name to memory!
SICK … The exploitation of the sacrifice of one of America’s bravest so that Barack Obama can appear to care about the military. However, Obama promised a different kind of campaign … who knew that it meant not abiding by the family wishes of a fallen military hero.
For all those people that watched the first Presidential Debate and said that Obama won, maybe they would like to analyze the actual debate and whether what was said during the debate was truthful, or proper. Remember back on Friday night when Barack Obama played the “me too” candidate and said that he to wore a bracelet of a fallen soldier? If you have forgotten, then watch below. Sadly, Barack Obama forgot the name of the very soldier’s bracelet who he was wearing.
“Uh, Jim, uh, let me just make a point. I’ve got a bracelet, too. From Sgt., uh, uh… From the mother, uh, of Sgt. Ryan David Jopek… given to me in Green Bay… And she asked me can you please make sure that another mother isn’t going through what I am going through.”
How very sad that Barack Obama could not remember the name of the soldier that he was using to pander for votes. However, that appears to be the least of Obama’s ills toward this family.
ACTUALLY OBAMA THAT IS NOT WHAT THIS FAMILY TOLD YOU!
Actually, it turns out that the family of fallen Soldier Sergeant Ryan David Jopek told Barack Obama to stop wearing the bracelet months ago. It appears as though Obama has refused that plea.
Reported at News Busters … Brian Jopek, the father of Sergeant Ryan David Jopek who tragically lost his life to a roadside bomb in Iraq has asked Barack Obama to stop wearing this son’s bracelet … yet Obama continues to do so while pandering for votes while using the sacrifice of their son for his campaign.
Radio host Glenn Moberg of the show “Route 51″ asked Mr. Jopek, a man who believes in the efforts in Iraq and is not in favor of Obama’s positions on the war, what he and his ex-wife think of Obama continually using their son’s name on the campaign trail.
So why hasn’t Barack Obama condemned this ad and asked for it to be stopped?
How low could LIBERALS possibly be? Watch the disgusting liberal PAC ad below that targets John McCain in a personal manner with regards to his cancer. Wasn’t it the LEFT who made the accusations that Republicans try and scare voters?
Guess who was behind the PAC, Brave New PAC and Democracy for America, and this political hit piece?Chairman of the DNC Howard Dean’s brother, James H. Dean. Federal campaign finance rules prohibit coordination between outside groups and campaigns or parties. However, we are supposed to believe that there was no coordination between brothers because they said there was none.
‘‘The fact that Howard Dean’s brother and an adviser to the Obama campaign are behind despicable and cheap smear ads against Sen. McCain is deeply disappointing, but in no way surprising,’’ said RNC spokesman Danny Diaz. ‘‘Barack Obama has promised Americans an elevated debate offering nothing but gutter, Chicago-style politics.’’
Guess who is the only network showing this disgusting ad … MSNBC. How low has the Peacock fallen? Once again MSNBC shows just how far they are in the tank for Barack Obama. What a joke. Even worse … how reprehensible could anyone be?
Two liberal groups – one of them directed by a brother of the Democratic Party chairman Howard Dean – will begin running a graphic attack advertisement Thursday morning raising questions about Senator John McCain’s health. Showing vivid and unflattering images of the fresh scar that appeared on Senator McCain’s face immediately after his last operation for melanoma skin cancer eight years ago, the commercial ends with a screen headline that reads, “Why won’t John McCain release his medical records?” (Mr. McCain, 72, did invite a limited group of reporters to inspect more than 1,100 pages of his medical records in May, …)
Obama has not released his medical records. His campaign instead released a one-page letter in May from his longtime physician, Chicago internist Dr. David L. Scheiner, that summarized 21 years of medical records and described Obama’s health as excellent.
MSNBC has notified an independent group running an ad questioning John McCain’s health that it will no longer air the spot, only a half day after Fox’s Bill O’Reilly attacked NBC’s corporate bosses on the air over the ad, the group tells me.The spot, which has been running on MSNBC since yesterday, is the work of Brave New PAC and Democracy For America, which is headed up by Howard Dean’s brother. It demands that McCain release his medical records and quotes doctors saying that McCain’s age and bouts with cancer should raise concern, with one saying that another round of cancer would “profoundly impact his capacity to lead.”O’Reilly also blasted Jeffrey Immelt, the head of General Electric, which owns NBC, and top NBC exec Jeff Zucker. “They should be ashamed, but they are anything but,” O’Reilly said.
DEBATES DO NOT SHOW LEADERSHIP … ACTIONS SHOW LEADERSHIP
What does America ask of their President? Generally, the basically ask two things. One, they demand their President he ethical and have character. Two, and most importantly … they ask their President to lead. Not watch polls, not see which way the story turns in order to create an opinion. AMERICANS DEMAND LEADERSHIP FROM THEIR PRESIDENT!
Republican candidate John McCain has suspended his campaign and goes back to Washington, DC to help try and hammer out a deal with regards to the $700 billion financial bail out crisis. McCain asked Barack Obama to postpone the Presidential debates on Friday night so that the two Senators could do the work of the American people. After all the debate is supposed to be on foreign policy, not the economy. Now before anyone who opposed McCain says this is grandstanding and a politic gimmick, John McCain has precedent of putting Country before Politics. Was it a gimmick when McCain said no to his Vietnamese captors and stayed a POW? Was it a gimmick when John McCain backed the surge in Iraq when nearly everyone was against it?
No, it was no gimmick … it was called leadership.
A debate is much a do about nothing and pre-rehearsed talking points … what McCain is doing is giving America a glimpse into how he would act as a President and put Country before party. Conversely, so is Obama and his actions. First he said that the debates will go on, in the same breathe that he is claiming that the financial crisis we are in is the worst since the Great Depression. First he said he was not going back to DC, then he changed his mind.
AMERICA … LEADERSHIP IS NOT TALK … LEADERSHIP IS JUST THAT … LEADERSHIP.
UPDATE I: Deal or No Deal
Democrats can complian and point figures of blame all they want at John McCain, the fact is that a majority of Americans are angered over the bail out.
The Treasury secretary Henry M. Paulson Jr. quickly returned to Capitol Hill to try to revive the proposal.
One critical snag seems to be opposition to the $700 billion plan by conservative House Republicans.
“My hope is that we can get a deal,” said Senator Christopher J. Dodd, chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, hours after House and Senate negotiators had announced that an accord was at hand. President Bush had hoped that an agreement could be announced after the late-afternoon meeting.
Mr. Dodd, looking tired and annoyed, complained that the late complications were making the episode sound more like “a rescue plan for John McCain,” the Republican presidential candidate, than one for the financial system.
UPDATE II: John McCain Stated that there was Never a Deal on Wallstreet Bail Out
Republican White House hopeful Sen. John McCain denied Thursday there ever had been any deal in place between Congress and the White House on a $700-billion Wall Street bailout plan.
McCain said on ABC News after talks at the White House that also included his Democratic rival Sen. Barack Obama that he still hoped to go to the scheduled presidential debate Friday night in Mississippi.
But his senior campaign adviser Steve Schmidt accused Obama of putting himself before his country, by continuing to run campaign ads while the high-stakes political drama over the economic crisis was playing out.
McCain said he knew going into the White House meeting called by President Bush that there was no deal, after having said Wednesday the debate should be canceled if a bailout wasn’t secured
UPDATE III: Democrats play the blame game against John McCain; however, he is the only one in people’s eyes working for the People. As Town Hall.com states, hey Democrats, “If the bailout is so great, then why don’t you pass it with your majorities in the House and Senate and President Bush will certainly sign it.”
Watch the Fox News report John posted on how we got into this mess, and then chuckle at Obama’s quote to the AP:
“Keep in mind House Democrats and Senate Democrats and me and the leadership are all pretty burned up about this thing,” Obama said at a news conference after the TV interviews. “This wasn’t happening on our watch. We weren’t preventing some of the regulatory reforms that might have prevented us from getting here.”
Joe Biden Gaffe Shows he Needs a History Lesson … FDR led when market crashed … Oops, it was Hoover and No to Clean Coal
The Obama – Biden Odd Couple are at it again.
The Biden Gaffe-o-Meter has been working overtime these days. Biden praised Democratic President FDR and said today’s leaders should take a lesson from the history books and follow fellow Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt’s response to a financial crisis. Rather than taking a lesson from a history books, maybe Obama’s pick for VP should in fact read a history book. Maybe one say, regarding the stock market crash in 1929. The hell with reading a book, just do a google search and read the Wiki. It was not FDR who resided over the stock market crash, it was Herbert Hoover.
“When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened,’” Barack Obama’s running mate recently told the “CBS Evening News.”
Except, Republican Herbert Hoover was in office when the stock market crashed in October 1929.
Possibly even more comical that Biden’s blunder when it came to who was in office during the stock market crash of 1929, was the following comment regarding instilling confidence in what a leader knows and communicating it to the people. I guess its safe to say, by Biden’s own definition, that since Biden seems to know nothing regarding the crash … he instills no confidence either.
“Part of what being a leader does is to instill confidence, is to demonstrate what he or she knows what they are talking about and to communicating to people … this is how we can fix this,” Biden said.
Ace of Spades reiterates the fact that the “Dangerously Unprepared Vice Presidential Candidate Embarrasses Himself With Steady Stream of Ignorant, Dishonest Gaffes”. Obama knew that Biden was a walking, talking gaffe machine and still chose him as his VP candidate. We already knew Biden was an accident waiting to happen; however, it speaks volumes as to Obama’s decision making ability. No to clean coal, hmm, the voters of Pennsylvania should find that factoid interesting especially since Obama claims he was for it.
