Introducing Case & Point
Case & Point: Week of 9/14/2008
Posted by: Darren Case
As an act of appreciation to Hugh Hewitt’s readers, I have been brought on to nominate and analyze the best, and sometimes the worst, comments of the week. Throughout the week I will be reading your comments and will blog about the ones that bring an interesting perspective, quality analysis, or just standout in a positive way.
Before the inaugural edition of what I like to call “Case & Point,” I believe a brief introduction about who I am is warranted. I am from the great State of Arizona, where I received my bachelor’s degree from Arizona State University and met my wonderful wife. Shortly thereafter, I attended and graduated from Chapman University School of Law, with an emphasis in taxation. Currently, I am in the epicenter of American politics, residing in Washington, DC, where I am pursuing a Masters in the Laws of Taxation (LL.M.) at Georgetown University Law Center.
Now that the brief introduction is out of the way, it is time for Case & Point for the week of 9/14/2008.
Best Comment of the Week
The best comment of the week comes to us from ColoradoConservative, who posted in response to McCain Blasts Obama For Fear-Mongering and Indecisiveness, posted on September 18:
This is EXACTLY what McCain needs to say. Show strong and resolute leadership and don’t get everyone panicky which is Obama’s response. As a money manager, the problem right now for mainstream is to overcome the crisis of confidence and stay the course… Obama’s fear-mongering for short-term political gain (such as seizing upon half of McCain’s sentence the other day that the fundamentals are strong while ignoring the “but” conditional phrases) is the worst kind of politics. He would be ashamed and people should realize that Obama is not a leader; he is an exploiter.
McCain certainly has the “strong and resolute leadership” necessary to revive this economy. McCain’s comprehensive economic plan will “create millions of good American jobs, ensure our nation’s energy security, get the government’s budget and spending practices in order, and bring relief to American consumers.” I hope that ColoradoConservative can rally up the support of his friends and family to ensure Colorado remains a red state in this critical election.
