The Economist endorses Barack Obama

Thursday, October 30, 2008 14:39

This is a pretty good endorsement for Obama. While the article does not necessarily ring with excitement for Obama (more like both candidates are gambles but Obama is less of one) it says a lot when a fiscally republican leaning paper endorses Obama. While it's true that the paper has ...

McCain vs Obama: Economics

Tuesday, October 28, 2008 16:34

This is a very interesting article about the economic policies of both candidates. I will look at the article more closely in a bit (to verify mostly) and will return to comment in the comments section. Assuming this article interprets all the policies correctly, to summarize: 1. Obama's promised revenue from ...

Debate #3: Fact Checking

Debate #3: Fact Checking

Thursday, October 16, 2008 11:12

Great article on fact checking last night's debate. I think this debate was closer than the previous debates. I still think it is amazing that candidates do not answer direct questions and just go into their talking points. And if, according to McCain, Sarah Palin is qualified to be ...

Is John McCain a Racist Fear Monger?

Is John McCain a Racist Fear Monger?

Tuesday, October 14, 2008 1:39

I don’t believe that John McCain is racist or a hate monger.  However I do believe that John McCain’s recent slide in the polls has made his campaign desperate to change the topic away from the economy.  As much has been admitted by his own campaign when: a "top McCain strategist" ...

Sorry, Dad, I’m Voting for Obama
