Here are some quick picks that I’ve pulled from the newsreader that I thought you may find interesting.
John over at Power Line blog is wondering where Arnold has been the past two months. He’s posted the full 12-plus minute video of Arnold’s appearance in Columbus, Ohio.
Uncle Jimbo and team over at Blackfive are putting the heat on Congressman John Murtha in Pennsylvania this weekend. Murtha – who has held his seat in Congress since 1974 – has made a fool of himself the last couple of weeks and the Republican challenger, Bill Russell, has a chance to take the seat.
Russell is a retired Army Lt. Colonel who visited western Pennsylvania during his tour of duty, liked the area and moved there after retirement. I know that Jim has listeners in Pennsylvania, so maybe a few of them should check out the rally planned for Russell at 2 p.m. tomorrow (Nov. 2) in New Stanton.
Throw the bums out.
Jim Geraghty over at The Campaign Spot on National Review Online has been talking polls and tracking reports over the weekend. How will the tracking be effected by Halloween parties?
Jim’s said at least on two occasions this week that at times, he’s felt embarrassed to say he is and was a journalist. Here is one more piece from National Review Online where Victor Davis Hanson writes The End of Journalism.
… we have never quite seen anything like the current media infatuation with Barack Obama, and its collective desire not to raise key issues of concern to the American people. Here were four areas of national interest that were largely ignored.
Last but not least is an Obama interview from 2003 at the start of his Senate career. Ed Morrissey over at Hot Air has the video.
Obama’s top end for cuts certainly changed dramatically. If he thought that tax cuts should be limited to $70K in 2003, he hasn’t explained what changed in the following five years to move that to $250K $200K $150K $120K. Obama could have simply changed his mind, but the ambiguity surrounding Democratic talking points in the past few weeks suggests that his commitment to the higher income levels is tenuous at best.
