Think again. I heard on the radio today the most straightforward and honest explanation I’ve ever heard from a Liberal Democrat about what they believe. This is what these people stand for, so watch out, and don’t be shocked when you end up with less under their rule. This is Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA):
That implies that he thinks it would be harmful to the economy to raise taxes on “the wealthy few.” If it’s a bad idea in an economic downturn, how is it a good idea any other time? Someone needs to have a talk with the Messiah about logic and contradiction.
I’m sure it pained the Huffington Post to run this story about McCain’s speech not only topping Palin’s in the ratings, but also the messianic Obama’s speech, and every other convention speech in history. Obama may be largely responsible for the surge in interest this election cycle, but that does not mean he’ll reap all the benefits.
Finally, Michael Barone does a good job of summing up the events and results of the last week at the GOP convention. Now we’ll have to see how successfully McCain/Palin can execute on the pivot they made towards being maverick reformers, instead of focusing on “experience.”
