I probably would have not known anything about Elkhart, Indiana but for the terrible economic crisis that is affecting the nation. Most of what we hear is in terms of bailouts of major financial institutions, losses for the mutual funds industry with repercussions to the pension fund holdings of many workers, but I had never envisioned that
As of 11:30 am EST, Senator John McCain officially decided to restart his previously "suspended campaign" and will attend tonight's debate at Oxford, Mississippi.
History was made this week when John McCain and the Republican Party nominated Governor Sarah Palin, the governor of Alaska, to run for Vice President of the United States on the Republican ticket with Presidential candidate John McCain. http://www.nytimes.com/2008/08/30/us/politics/29palin.html?_...
Like many people I wondered if Joe Biden was a good choice for Barack Obama. However after reading a CNN article which analyzes the first national poll taken after Obama’s selection of Biden I don't think so. http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/08/24/election.2008.poll/index.html
However, as it turns out inflating your tires will actually save you more money in the next year than offshore drilling will save you in the next twenty. How much more? DOUBLE! Bill continues:
On Thursday, conservative radio host Sean Hannity claimed Obama said, "All you need to do is inflate your tires. That's all you need to do.

In today's issue of the New York Times was an article, "Obama Goes One on One, Battling 'Just a Speechmaker' Label" (http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/15/us/politics/15campaign.html). The article goes on to discuss Obama's goal of interacting with voters on a more intimate level. As I reflected on the content, I thought about the reasons behind the shift. Why do we, as active voters, exercise our right the way we do?
Each day this debacle known as the Democratic nomination drags on, it is only serving one purpose, to enhance John McCain's campaign, further divide the Democratic party, and run any chance the Dems have of retaing 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in November.
This campaign is running like a broken record playing the same tune over and over and over. Let's see, the "controversy" of the week is Barack Obama saying that blue collar Pennsylvanians are bitter, “[I]t’s not surprising, then, that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations".
