Obama Has Some Studying To Do

Or, there’s a really bad communication problem within the campaign. Positions on issues, like this one, really need to be known.

Sounds of Silence

UPDATE:

Big Story Of The Day

Sort of.  It really became more about politics than about ethics and lies.

McClellan Details Bush Administration Credibility Gap

In testimony on Capital Hill, former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan basically painted a portrait of an administration that created its own credibility gap — and a White House response to his testimony further underscored why […]

Another McCain-ism

Hate to play “gotcha” so frequently with Mr. McCain, but he’s certainly giving us ample opportunity to do so.

Can McCain Find A Single Economist To Back His Claim That Offshore Drilling Will Lower Gas Prices?

Our guest blogger is Adam Jentleson, the Communications and Outreach Director for the Hyde Park Project at the Center for American Progress Action Fund. The government’s official source for energy statistics says that offshore drilling will not have a “significant impact” on gas prices until 2030.

And, no surprise here, Americans aren’t happy.  Not at all.

Eight in 10 Americans say country is headed in the ‘wrong direction.’

A new AP-Ipsos poll finds that nearly eight in 10 Americans believe “the country is moving in the wrong direction…amid soaring food and gas prices, falling home values and unending war. Just 17 percent say the country is going in the right direction.” This figure is the lowest since the survey began in 2003, and […]

Question Of The Day

Oh, what a great poll! And, of course, it comes from our friends at Fox News.  Surprised?

Fox News asks voters, ‘How much do you think Barack Obama loves America?’

There’s something eminently entertaining about Fox News polls, in large part because the network includes questions in its polls that no other news outlet would even consider. In this case, that’s not a compliment. In the poll (.pdf) released this afternoon, the big question, of course, was about the horserace in the general election. Fox News […]
