Excellent Choice!

This move is nothing short of brillant! The McCain camp has T-Boned Obama/Biden. As you know I am a huge fan of Sun Tzu he teaches about the element of surprise. Just last Friday I had Gary Gagliardi
from the Science of Strategy Institute on my show, here is what he had to say...

What VP Candidate would Sun Tzu Choose for McCain?
In Sun Tzu’s The Art of War, surprise has a very specific role. You use it at the right time to change momentum. Even when a standard move works, doing what is expected never changes momentum. For example, in the current presidential campaign, no attack on the opposition, no matter how effective, is going to change momentum because such attacks are expected. What kind of surprises could the candidates use? Well, McCain could come up with a surprising choice of VP candidate, which is why people are talking about the possible choice of Joe Lieberman. A Democrat on the Republican ticket would be surprising, but it also wouldn’t work because it violates the first rule of strategy that says that a team must share the same core philosophy and, beyond their agreement on national defense, McCain and Lieberman cannot agree. If surprise is the goal, McCain should choose Sarah Palin, the Republican governor of Alaska. She hasn’t gotten a lot of press, but what makes her so unusual is how attractive she is. This is a surprising image for any political candidate and even more so for a Republican. If I were McCain, I would announce this choice right before the Democrat convention so that all the Obama people could attack the choice of a beautify, intelligent, successful, woman (with more executive experience than either Obama, Biden or McCain combined) in front of all those Hillary supporters.

McCain wins big at Saddleback

Read Byron York's excellent analysis at NRO here are some exerts.

The contrast was striking throughout each man’s one-hour time on stage. When Warren asked Obama, “What’s the most gut-wrenching decision you’ve ever had to make?” Obama answered that opposing the war in Iraq was “as tough a decision that I’ve had to make, not only because there were political consequences but also because Saddam Hussein was a bad person and there was no doubt he meant America ill.” But Obama was a state senator in Illinois when Congress authorized the president to use force in Iraq. He didn’t have to make a decision on the war. That fact was a recurring issue in the Democratic primaries, when candidates Hillary Clinton, Joseph Biden, Christopher Dodd, and John Edwards argued that they, as senators, had to make a choice Obama didn’t have to make. And now he says it’s his toughest call.

When McCain got the question, he was able to tell an old story with a sense of gravity and poignancy that he seldom shows in public. He described his time as a prisoner of war, when he was offered a chance for early release because his father was a top naval officer. “I was in rather bad physical shape,” McCain told Warren, but “we had a code of conduct that said you only leave by order of capture.” So McCain refused to go. He made the telling even more forceful when he added that, “in the spirit of full disclosure, I’m very happy I didn’t know the war was going to last for another three years or so.” In one moment, he showed a sense of pride and a hint of regret, too; he came across as a man who did the right thing but not without the temptation to take an easy out. In any event, the message was very clear: John McCain has had to make bigger, more momentous decisions in his life than has Barack Obama.

And here is my favorite McCain closed the deal with this one.

Early on in the questioning, Warren asked each man, “What…would be the greatest moral failure in your life, and what would be the greatest moral failure of America?” Obama answered that he drank and “experimented” with drugs as a teenager, which he attributed to his own selfishness. McCain, on the other hand, said, “The failure of my first marriage. It’s my greatest moral failure.”

Limbaugh's theory on why Edwards strayed

On the August 12 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, Rush Limbaugh said of former Sen. John Edwards' recent disclosure of an extramarital affair: "I've got a theory about the motivations. Well, I don't know that I could -- I don't know that I can put this one on the air."

Discussing his "theory," Limbaugh said, "We know -- we've been told that Elizabeth Edwards is smarter than John Edwards. That's part of the puff pieces on them that we've seen. Ergo, if Elizabeth Edwards is smarter than John Edwards, is it likely that she thinks she knows better than he does what his speeches ought to contain and what kind of things he ought to be doing strategy-wise in the campaign? If she is smarter than he is, could it have been her decision to keep going with the campaign? In other words, could it be that she doesn't shut up? Now, that's as far as I'm going to go." Limbaugh later added

"It just seems to me that Edwards might be attracted to a woman whose mouth did something other than talk." Limbaugh went on to say in a subsequent segment: "my theory that I just explained to you about why -- you know, what could have John Edwards' motivations been to have the affair with Rielle Hunter, given his wife is smarter than he is and probably nagging him a lot about doing this, and he found somebody that did something with her mouth other than talk."

McCain's Abortion Remark Stuns Base

Top social conservative leaders in key battleground states are urging John McCain not to pick a running mate who supports abortion rights, warning of dire consequences from a Republican base already unenthused about their nominee.

McCain’s comments Wednesday to the Weekly Standard’s Stephen Hayes that former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge’s pro-abortion rights views wouldn’t necessarily rule him out quickly found their way into the in-boxes of Christian conservatives. For those who have been anxiously awaiting McCain’s pick as a signal of his ideological intentions, there was deep concern that their worst fears about the Arizona senator may be realized.

I polled the Q Nation on-air this morning. They overwhelmingly said they'd support McCain even with a pro-abort like Ridge as the VP, only 4 callers said no.

The Fix Is In!

I think Ruth Kaiser Nelson knows the answer to that question.

Housing Authority OKs complex for mentally ill

After hearing nearly two hours of public comments for and against a planned residential development for people who are mentally ill, the Tulsa Housing Authority on Tuesday approving building the facility.

The building will be at 10 S. Yale and will include more than 70 small apartments. It will be operated by the Mental Health Association as part of the Building Tulsa Building Lives program, which aims to eliminate chronic homelessness in Tulsa. The meeting was filled to capacity and was interrupted several times by shouting and applause. Several people who live near where the development is planned were not allowed to enter the meeting because of fire codes.
How convienent!

PC on Fox

I'll be on Fox & Friends Saturday at 7:15AM ET(6:15AM CT) along with Bill Press.

We will be talking about the Video that was made of Hillary in Palo Alto on July 30th when she said that she wanted, “We will come out stronger if people feel that their voices were heard and their views were respected.” She also goes onto remind her supporters that they don’t need her permission to place her name in nomination, and even suggests that having her name submitted for nomination would go a long way to quelling hurt feelings among her supporters.

So the question is…What does Hillary want?

* Is she angling for an appointment?

* Some Democrats are worried that Obama hasn’t leapfrogged McCain in the polls. Is Hillary looking to be able to point at her party and say “I told you so” if Obama loses?

* Is she secretly endorsing a coup on the convention floor, while publicly backing Obama, in order to preserve her reputation?

* Is Obama worried about this? Should he be?

This is what Jerome Corsi was talking about this morning

It is being reported today that Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times has in his possession a tape recording of an interview he once had with Barack Obama that may be very damaging to the latter’s campaign for the presidency.

The tape (and the transcript of it) stem from a February 27, 2007 visit Kristof paid to Obama’s senate offices. A column Kristof wrote based upon this interview appeared in the New York Times on March 6, 2007.

In a column he wrote this week about Obama which was published on Tuesday, Kristof once again refers to this earlier interview. Also, he has subsequently seemed to say that his editors have reviewed it in its entirety.

What may be damning about the interview, the transcript of it and—especially—the original tape recording is that Obama allegedly provided Kristof with a recitation from memory of the Muslim call to prayer in Arabic. One of Obama’s cousins in Africa has stated in the recent past that Obama was, indeed, once a Muslim. Kristof’s interview records may prove this more definitively.

Obama lived in Indonesia until he was about ten years old. He attended a Catholic school there but was allegedly enrolled as a student of the Muslim faith. Popular psychologists have maintained for decades that what happens to children during their tenth year of life stays with them most strongly for as long as they live. Obama has admitted in one of his best-selling books that he remembers vividly hearing Muslim calls to prayer when he was growing up in Southeast Asia. But what does it mean if he remembers the call in its entirety in a language, Arabic, foreign to both Americans and Indonesians?

The issue is not whether Obama was ever a Muslim. Who could blame him if his elders exposed him to Muslim influences and even mosque attendance in the largest Islamic country in the world, Indonesia, as a child? What Kristof may, however, have raised as an issue once again—and, this time, in spades—is Obama’s inability and/or unwillingness to tell us the truth about his past in Southeast Asia, Chicago or anywhere else.
