Only Hand-wringers and Bedwetters Doubt the Dalibama

Wednesday, September 17, 2008  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Obama campaign manager David Plouffe dismissed Democratic critics of Barack Obama’s two month slide in the polls today.

Some Democrats are getting very concerned, and they have been making their concerns known to the Obama campaign. “We’re familiar with this,” Obama’s campaign manager, David Plouffe, told The New York Times a few days ago. “And I’m sure between now and Nov. 4 there will be another period of hand-wringing and bed-wetting. It comes with the territory.”

Nice. Sure to increase confidence in the insular Chicago gang that has left Obama addicted not just to smokes but the teleprompter, shackled to empty rhetoric and prone to gaffes. Obama should dominate next week’s debate given his stack of reviews from an adoring MSM, but the bedwetters may not be so sure.

The Attack On The U.S. Embassy In Yemen

Wednesday, September 17, 2008  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Today’s attack is another reminder of the war that rages on across the globe whether or not the Beltway-Manhattan media elites notice it.The U.S.S. Cole was attacked and 17 American sailors killed on October 12, 2000 in the Yemen. Less than a year later the Islamists of course devastated America with an attack.

MSM may shrug off today’s attack because no Americans were killed, but it deserves wide and thorough coverage because of what it signifies and portends.

Police vehicles and fire brigade vehicles hover around the scene ...

“Reaching Critical Mass”

Victor Davis Hanson on the accelerating collapse of the Obama campaign. (HT:

Obama’s decision to hang with the silly-but-glam Barbra Streisand crowd tonight is another in a string of miscalculations extending back to Berlin. Obama’s prompter-dependent and increasingly erratic in his campaign choices as panic sets in, and it seems to impact his every move.

UPDATE: John McCain in Ohio today:

“[Obama] talked about siding with the people… just before he flew off to Hollywood for a fundraiser with Barbra Streisand and his celebrity friends. Let me tell you, my friends, there is no place I’d rather be than here, with the working men and women of Ohio.”

UPDATE 2: Frank Beckwith finds Obama’s past calls for commissions, which are ironic given Obama’s denunciation of Mccain’s call for a commission today.
