Tony Snow slams John Kerry

The White House accused Sen. John Kerry on Tuesday of troop-bashing, seizing on a comment the Democrat made to California students that those unable to navigate the country's education system "get stuck in Iraq."

"Senator Kerry not only owes an apology to those who are serving, but also to the families of those who've given their lives in this," White House press secretary Tony Snow said. "This is an absolute insult."

Kerry, a decorated Vietnam veteran and Bush's rival in 2004, fired back, saying the president and his administration are the ones who owe U.S. troops an apology because they "misled America into war and have given us a Katrina foreign policy that has betrayed our ideals, killed and maimed our soldiers, and widened the terrorist threat instead of defeating it."

"This is the classic GOP playbook," Kerry said in a harshly worded statement. "I'm sick and tired of these despicable Republican attacks that always seem to come from those who never can be found to serve in war, but love to attack those who did. I'm not going to be lectured by a stuffed suit White House mouthpiece standing behind a podium."

Snow was asked about the comment which Kerry made during a campaign rally Monday for California Democratic gubernatorial candidate Phil Angelides. The White House spokesman was clearly ready, consulting his notes to read a fuller account of Kerry's statement and unleashing a sharp attack.

Way to go Second Lady!

I've been fuming all week on CNN's showing US solders being killed by the terrorists. Finally Lynne Cheney our Second Lady slapped CNN's Wolf Blizzer here:
Cheney turned the tables on Blitzer, becoming the questioner: "what is CNN doing running tapes of terrorists shooting Americans," she asked more than once, repeating a question CNN had been asked: "Do you want us to win?"

"The answer is, of course, we want the United States to win," said Blitzer. "We are Americans." Blitzer said airing the footage was not terrorist propaganda but "reporting the news. This is what we do... We make no apologies for showing it."

Don't get cocky kid

President Bush said yesterday that overconfident Democrats who are already "measuring the drapes" for their move into power on Capitol Hill will have the rug pulled out from under them on Election Day.

"The Democrats have made a lot of predictions. Matter of fact, I think they may be measuring the drapes," Bush said yesterday to laughs at a Sarasota, Fla., fund-raiser for GOP House hopeful Vern Buchanan.

"If their electoral predictions are as reliable as their economic predictions, Nov. 7th is going to be a good day for the Republicans."

The president added, "One of the reasons that the Democrats will lose on Election Day: Because they want to raise your taxes. No, I know they don't want to tell it that plainly, but that's what they're going to do."

Blogosphere at Rush

Here is something I missed yesterday while I was volunteering in my daughter's Kindergarten class (We made jack-o-laterns).
I watch it and I say, "Well, that's really helpful." I don't see the Democrats out there even when they know they're going to lose talking about how bad it's going to be and how many seats they're going to lose. I just don't see it. I've been in this game a long time, and I've played a lot of competitive sports, and I've worked for competitive sports teams, professionally, and I've never seen anybody want to lose, as a means of advancing. The Mets didn't want to lose last night. "Come on, Rush! It's a flawed analogy." No, it's not. But I'm talking about one blog, and it's not even Insta-Pundit. Whoever Insta-Pundit is, is letting somebody else reply to whatever it was I'm saying on the program, and it's a little one-page post that I responded to this morning in the first hour.

I'm going to tell you the blog postings that I regularly read in my RSS reader. I've communicated with many of the people who run them. They're fabulous people, starting with National Review Online, then Hugh Hewitt and his Townhall blog, Captain Ed, Ed Morrissey at Captain's Quarters. The three lawyers at Power Line. These are resources that I have added to everything else that I use for show prep which makes show prep an ongoing, never ending thing. Red State is another site.(I hope I don't forget anybody.) Little Green Footballs. I don't want to leave any out. A.J. Strata, Strata-Sphere. I don't want to leave anybody out here. The American Spectator. You here me talking about these. I'm referring to two days' worth of posts on this one site.

And then who could forget MM here:
Now, is that not the answer you were looking for? You look stunned in there. What were you getting at with the difference between a blogger and a columnist? (interruption) Mmm-hmm. Mmm-hmm. Mmm-hmm. Mmm-hmm. Mmm-hmm. Mmm-hmm. Mmm-hmm. No. In fact, Michelle Malkin, she has a column and she's got two blogs. She's got a blog called Hot Air and she's got a personal blog. They're both excellent. She's one of the leading forces in the anti-illegally immigration movement out there in terms of informing people about it with specific details of outrages as they happen across the country wherever, at whatever custom station, port of entry, city, whatever. She's made it her passion. It's the best.

Michelle is the best and Mary Katharine Ham is a great one too. She has just launched her own video blog here.

USA- Support America And Our Troops

Again, we are out there to save this world. Not only America, but to save the world from evil.
Everything Is Going to be Alright

Great support for our troops. They are doing a fantastic job! Keep it up the world needs it.

Support for Traditional marriage

Finally we have an elected official that will state what "Gay marriage" cannot provide young children. Mass. Governor Mitt Romney is that man!
"The price of same-sex marriage is paid by the children," the governor said. "The child's development is enhanced by the nurturing of parents of both genders. Every child deserves a mother and a father."

I have written letters to the editors and to our elected officals about how the children are directly effected by non-traditional lifestyles. A child needs a MOM and a DAD (A Female and A Male set of Parents, not a MOM/MOM or a DAD/DAD). Thank you Governor Romney. I'll vote for you if you run in 2008.

The Drive

Hugh Hewitt talked about the "Drive" yesterday in his description of the Republican's and this mid-term election. John Elway took his team 98 yards in 5 minutes to tie the game against the Clevland Browns to win the game in overtime. We got the drive, we can do it and win the game. All it takes is going to the polls on Nov. 7th.

Navy BDAY and I missed it! Shucks.

My NavyFamily life has been a bit frantic lately and blogging has been chaotic. When school starts it's always crazy getting into the routine and we are going to a new school too. My youngest is in Kindergarten and has been diagnosed with learning disabilities. Getting the school district to give her services will be a challenge but I found some help. And she does have a nice Kindergarten teacher too. My 4th grader is in a special day class and is mainstreamed in the AM with a regular 4th grade. Her teacher is fantastic too. I would love to home school my girls but with the disabilities they have (ASD) they need speech, occupational therapy and social skills that I feel they need.

So Michelle has a post on the 231st Navy Bday on October 13 here.

I saw this in the OC Register this week and wanted to mention this OC local NavySeal who died protecting his comrades here. I'll say a prayer for him and his family today in church. God Bless our Troops! (HT Laura's Misc. Musings here.)

Here is the Blackfive post by Froggy here on Mike Monsoor.

Bush and Rove confident

HT from Blogs for Bush here:

Amid widespread panic in the Republican establishment about the coming midterm elections, there are two people whose confidence about GOP prospects strikes even their closest allies as almost inexplicably upbeat: President Bush and his top political adviser, Karl Rove.

Some Republicans on Capitol Hill are bracing for losses of 25 House seats or more. But party operatives say Rove is predicting that, at worst, Republicans will lose only 8 to 10 seats -- shy of the 15-seat threshold that would cede control to Democrats for the first time since the 1994 elections and probably hobble the balance of Bush's second term.

In the Senate, Rove and associates believe, a Democratic victory would require the opposition to "run the table," as one official put it, to pick up the necessary six seats -- a prospect the White House seems to regard as nearly inconceivable.

I worry about a Dem take over but it's just my listening to the MSM and the thought of Speaker Pelosi! I prefer a big guy from Illinois to lead the house than a botoxed out skinny female from SF! I pray everyday we will keep the house and the senate. Our country and Troops need a Republican to fight the war! The Dems want to cut and run.Please don't let the Dems win. America will forever be changed. Our family values and our faith depend on a Red America. Not a Blue one.

Dalati's signs

Anaheim has "Little Gaza" a strip on Brookhurst from Fullerton to Garden Grove. It is full of Middle Eastern Resturants, Markets, Travel agencies and a few Islamic schools. On State College in Anaheim is an Islamic center. I drove past it this friday afternoon when services got out. There were very large Dalati campaign signs on a fence next to the center.

On LGF Charles notes the AP reporting on Dalati here.

I drove by the Rally they were talking about last July here.

I hope Reed gets it by the ethics committee

Over at Captain's Quarters here:
Harry Reid, stung by the AP's exposure of his complicated land deals with a lobbyist he helped make rich through his personal interventions in Congress, has told the Senate Ethics Committee that he will file amended disclosure statements that would reveal his business relationships for the first time. Reid claims the amendment would be "technical":

I hope at least he get's his hand slapped. About stepping down from his post, well I'm not holding my breath.

We will NOT sit out this one!

Over at David Limbaugh's site:
Democrats and the Old Media have been working hard to create this perception for several months, citing poll after poll to support their claims. It reminds me of the exit poll manipulation orchestrated by the Old Media and Democrat operatives in 2004 to create the GOP-deflating perception that John Kerry was winning big.

He states that after the Foley incident that conservatives will not sit out but show up at the polls in November. He also discussed what Nancy Pelosi will do on her first 100 hours of her so called "Speakerhood," here:
Nancy Pelosi has gotten cocky enough to unveil her agenda for the first 100 hours of her speakership.

She better hope that she hasn't triggered a true national debate on the issues and unwittingly nationalized the congressional elections, something the Republicans hadn't managed to pull off.

Can you imagine the Democrats winning a debate over national security when they've vigorously opposed almost every tool President Bush has tried to use to prosecute the war on terror? How would they gain from a true debate over Iraq, when Democrats still don't have a plan and can't even decide whether they favor withdrawal, "timetables" or "benchmarks"?

Can you imagine Democrats prevailing on a values debate where it would be emphasized that they actively promote the radical homosexual agenda and castigate one of the finest institutional exemplars of traditional values in our nation's history -- the Boy Scouts -- for their moral refusal to permit homosexuals to be scoutmasters? Does Nancy Pelosi truly support the National American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) or just proudly march in parades with them and receive 90 percent approval from their ACLU enablers? Inquiring minds surely want to know.

I will vote to not see the Botox face up there on the speaker's podium. Please!

Goat boy Adam Gadahn will get treason

I always like to post about the goat boy from OC. He will be charged with treason today in an LA Federal court. About time! Hot Air has the breaking news here.

OPLAN 5027

They say with the North's nuclear arsenal, the strategic geo-political landscape in the region around the Korean Peninsula faces a significant transformation, and a collapsing military balance between the two Koreas.

Sources said the JCS reports propose the current South Korean-U.S. combined war plan, codenamed OPLAN 5027, should be upgraded, noting the war plan lacks specified measures to cope with a nuclear war. The OPLAN 5027 is designed for conventional warfare, containing only a "comprehensive counter-nuclear" plan, they said.

"We will consider ways to improve the OPLAN 5027 on a gradual basis," a JCS official said.

The JCS reports also highlighted the need for introducing cutting-edge weapons systems that are capable of destroying the means of delivering nuclear weapons, according to sources.

"Our planned arms build-up for the transfer of wartime operational control will be used to counter nuclear delivery systems," a Defense Ministry official said.

The military plans to enhance surveillance and strike capabilities through acquiring airborne early warning aircraft, unmanned surveillance air vehicles and multi-purpose satellites as well as F-15K-class jet fighters, Aegis-equipped warships, multiple-launch rocket systems and 214-type submarines.

The Dems are counting their chickens...

I'm not worried about the November Election. The Folley Follies have backfired. The polls don't look good now for the Republicans. But I remember 2004 and 2000 the polls pointed to a democratic win. I want to thank North Korea for testing their Nukes this week. It's pointing to the failed Clinton foreign policy. National Security is more important than ever. What are the Dems doing about National Security? They are working on cut and run in Iraq and blaming everything on Bush. It's not working.

Tax cuts, gas prices going down, securing the border, unemployment down, the economy UP! Bush is right, Dems are wrong. Republicans will win. So all you Republicans please hold your nose and vote this November. Show up and vote and don't let the Dems fool you. Rush said this morning what will the Democrats do if they loose this November? They have no plan.

UN Ambassador Bolton on NoKo

U.S. Ambassador John Bolton, scheduled to meet with the U.N. Security Council on Tuesday, cast the standoff with Pyongyang as one "between North Korea and the rest of the world" that will result in sanctions or more if the rogue nation does not restart talks with the international community.

"I think that North Korea has had a successful history of intimidating other countries," Bolton said on CBS'"The Early Show."

"They're not going to be successful with us," he added.

USS George HW Bush

Both 41 & 43 and siblings cristend thier Daddy's namesake at Newport News on Friday here.

George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, the most famous father-son act in American politics since the Adamses, saluted one another at a rain-drenched, shore-side ceremony Saturday, as an aircraft carrier was christened in the name of the father, a naval aviator who survived a direct strike by Japanese antiaircraft fire over the Pacific 62 years ago.

Doro Bush Koch, the former president's daughter and the current president's sister, smashed a bottle of sparkling wine against the bow of the vessel, and declared: "I hereby christen thee USS George H.W. Bush. May God bless all who sail her."

Border Fence law signed into Law

Hizza! WE finally have a secure border. Thanks to Bush, and The Republican congress. (Now if we can just get past the Folley Follies the Dems are screaming about. They want to target other "Gay" republicans. More on that later.....)
President George W. Bush signed a law on Wednesday that will pay for hundreds of miles of new fences along the U.S.-Mexico border, a move against illegal immigration that Republicans had sought before next month's congressional elections.

Bush had hoped to address the illegal immigration issue in a comprehensive way that would have brought beefed-up border security as well as a temporary guest-worker program allowing immigrants to work legally in the United States.

Liberals gone wild

Last week Michelle Malkin was slimed by the liberal blogs and a UNC Law Professor. A photo was stolen on webshots here. It was photoshoped and Michelle's face was placed into the picture. I think that we as a web based community should protect our pictures and "privatize" them. I know on Webshots you can let invited guests only to look at your pictures and download them. Especially from those who want to smear conservatives, we should put up the wall to keep the wild liberals out.

Tom McClintock is close!

'McClintock Closes in as Garamendi Falters'

The Sacramento Bee headline says it all…

Two new polls released this week show John Garamendi losing support in the race for Lt. Governor. On Saturday, The Los Angeles Times reported that Tom McClintock had a one-point lead 42% to 41%. The prestigious Field Poll released today shows Garamendi has “lost traction with voters while support for McClintock…has held steady.”

Read for yourself...

McClintock closes in as Garamendi falters

By Judy Lin - Bee Capitol Bureau
Published 12:00 am PDT Tuesday, October 3, 2006

Democrat John Garamendi and Republican Tom McClintock are locked in a tight race for the lieutenant governor's job, while attack ads have cut into Oakland Mayor Jerry Brown's lead in the attorney general's race, according to the latest Field Poll released Monday.

Garamendi, a two-term state insurance commissioner, appears to have lost traction with voters while support for McClintock, a state senator known for his fiscal conservatism, has held steady. The latest survey shows 41 percent of likely voters supporting Garamendi, and 39 percent favoring McClintock.

In July, the same survey showed Garamendi had 48 percent support, compared to 38 percent for McClintock.

The numbers suggest that California's ever-growing camp of voters who decline to state a political party will play a pivotal role in deciding who becomes the next lieutenant governor -- a largely ceremonial job but one candidates often hope to use as a springboard for gubernatorial bids. While Democrats and Republicans largely fell in line with their party candidate, 23 percent of nonpartisan voters remained undecided.

"Those are the swing voters in play," said Field Poll Director Mark DiCamillo.

"They're just playing a much greater role. They're undecided until they find out more about the candidates."

While the Garamendi camp has been trying to portray McClintock as a right-wing obstructionist, the state Republican Party has aired ads featuring a husband and wife who claim they lost their house and blame Garamendi for bungling the collapse of the Executive Life Insurance Co. during his first stint as insurance commissioner.

Negative campaign ads also appear to have cut into Brown's sizable early lead in the state attorney general race.

However, the survey results suggest the attacks haven't yet translated into votes for his challenger, DiCamillo said. Brown's lead is down to 15 points, compared to a 21-point advantage over Republican challenger Chuck Poochigian in July's Field Poll.

"That's good news for Brown and bad news for Poochigian because it hasn't yet moved to Poochigian's column," DiCamillo said.

In the current survey, 45 percent of likely voters supported Brown and 30 percent favored Poochigian. The undecided accounted for 18 percent.

Both men are enjoying the loyalty of their party members. Brown, a former two-term governor, has 70 percent support among Democratic voters. Poochigian, a state senator from Fresno running in his first statewide contest, has 60 percent. However, nonpartisan voters prefer Brown.

With just five weeks left to court voters, California is experiencing one of its quietest U.S. Senate races.

"It's almost below the radar screen," DiCamillo said.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein retains a 2-1 margin lead over her Republican challenger, Richard Mountjoy. The current survey shows 57 percent of likely voters supporting the Democratic senator, while 29 percent favor Mountjoy.

The incumbent senator has commanding leads over Mountjoy, a former state senator, across all regions of the state except for the Southern California region outside of Los Angeles County.


And, over the weekend, the Los Angeles Times released a separate poll that showed Tom McClintock leading by one point.

“In the race for lieutenant governor, state Sen. Tom McClintock (R-Thousand Oaks) was virtually tied with Democratic state Insurance Commissioner John Garamendi, 42% to 41%.”

Soros will get out of Politics

September 29, 2006 -- Billionaire liberal financier George Soros, who spent millions of his fortune trying to oust President Bush in 2004, yesterday said he hopes to stay out of politics from now on.
"In the future, I'd very much like to get disengaged from politics," Soros said at a Council on Foreign Relations meeting on the Upper East Side. "I'm interested in policy and not in politics."

I won't believe it until I see it. Will he bail out Air America? Heh!
