Good Riddance

At long last the distraction of the Ron Paul campaign will be finished. He has acknowledged his campaign will wind down and he will re-assume his role in the House. The millions of dollars that Ron Paul has raised during this primary season can now be transferred into his House reelection fund; finally proving that his run was nothing more than an attempt to inject much needed cash into his congressional war chest. Talk about campaign finance reform?

Barack Obama is in a heap of trouble lately. Samantha Power is a journalist and professor, who also serves as the foreign policy senior advisor on Obama's campaign. That was until today. The junior senator from Illinois relied heavily upon her with regards to strategies for dealing with the situation in Iraq. For months we have heard Obama's empty rhetoric that he will withdraw forces immediately from the troubled region. However, while Power was on a book tour in the U.K. a journalist asked her what Obama's specific course of action might be. Her response, "He will, of course, not rely on some plan that he’s crafted as a presidential candidate or a U.S. Senator". Ironic that liberals call the GOP the party of double-speaking isn't it?

But that is not the worst of it. In fact, I would argue that this exchange will not even be shown by the liberal media. What you will see is an interview with a Scottish newspaper wherein Ms. Power labels Hillary Clinton a "monster". She has since apologized for the remark and consequentially resigned from the campaign.

Lastly, Howard Dean has shown severe favoritism as he is using his post as chair of the DNC to attempt "reruns" in Michigan and Florida. You have to love the show this party can put on. And there's no end in sight either; Pennsylvania is six weeks away. Breathe easy Maverick.

And a quick note about party fund raising:

DNC: $3.7 million on hand; $60 million raised in past 13 months
RNC: $25 million on hand; $90 million raised in past 13 months

Doesn't really bode well for the liberals' message for change.
