Gloomy Conservatives:The right wing is properly blaming itself for the fix it’s in

“Why, I heard people ask again and again, had the [Christian] leaders not led? Why, if they had as much influence as everyone supposed they did, had they brought us still one more time to the point where everyone had to rehash the rights and the wrongs of voting for ‘the lesser of two evils’? …I have no doubt the leaders of the religious right will be unified in their opposition to this fall's Democratic candidate. I have grave doubts whether those same leaders will any time soon be able to offer credible credentials for positive endorsements of almost any kind.” READ MORE >

Young voters will help, but can’t elect, Obama

"If [Obama] wins his party’s nomination, the 46-year-old stands a shot against the 72-year-old John McCain. Even so, Obama would need to find a bloc of voters outside his coalition of blacks and yuppies. But the history of the post-1968 Democratic party suggests that Obama would struggle in wooing a new constituency. The national party has pursued the votes of young people, minorities, and liberated women first and foremost — and those of the white working class and Catholics second, if at all. As a result, only two of the party’s last seven presidential nominees have won. Obama could be the third winner, but he will need more than hope." READ MORE >

Evangelical Leader James Dobson Endorses Mike Huckabee

"His record on the institution of the family and other conservative issues makes his candidacy a matter of conscience and concern for me... His unwavering positions on the social issues, notably the institution of marriage, the importance of faith and the sanctity of human life, resonate deeply with me and with many others."

Can McCain Win Over Right-Wingers?

"For McCain's critics on the right, the OSI funding implicates the Arizona senator in all the progressive and libertarian causes that the Soros foundation has supported -- including reproductive rights, drug law and sentencing reform, public financing of elections and abolition of the death penalty, to give a short list. If that sounds like guilt by association, McCarthy style, that kind of thinking is hardly alien to Limbaugh, Coulter and their fans." READ MORE >

Political Split Between Evangelicals and Their Spokesmen

“Should Obama earn the Democratic nomination, his message of hope and unity will appeal to young evangelicals… The successes of Huckabee and McCain show that evangelicals are open to a broader policy agenda… But their moderate economic policies also strain a delicate if formerly successful platform. ‘One conclusion that you could draw is a lot evangelicals are ready to move beyond President Bush…’” READ MORE >

Obama vulnerable in November because of liberal policies

“The one thing that will keep Obama's appeal from translating into widespread support among Republicans is that he is, on almost every issue, a conventional liberal... politics is finally and fundamentally about ideas and philosophy… If he wanted to demonstrate his independence from liberal orthodoxy he could come out in favor of school choice for low-income families, which would both help poor families and demonstrate support for some of the best faith-based institutions in America: urban parochial schools. If Obama becomes the Democratic nominee and fails to take steps such as this, his liberal views will be his greatest vulnerability.” READ MORE >

Why liberal bloggers don’t love Obama

“Obama is, in some respects, the ideal candidate of the Yearly Kos contingent--an insurgent who opposed the Iraq war, generated grassroots enthusiasm, and built a massive online fund-raising apparatus. But the bloggers who champion these things have not all rallied around Obama… Obama's readiness to embrace conservatives and chastise his allies on the left have caused many bloggers to wonder how strongly he would fight for liberal priorities as president.” READ MORE >

Is Political Bias Backfiring on Fox News?

"Fox News continues to embarrass itself with a type of journalism that nobody else in the industry would dare call professional… An all-out Fox News marketing blitz to label Giuliani ‘America's Mayor’ never got traction… In the meantime, the rise of Sen. John McCain and especially Mike Huckabee, with his populist streak, has caused all sorts of consternation at Fox News… And don't even mention Ron Paul's name to the folks at Fox News, who have stepped outside their role as journalists to try to kneecap the antiwar GOP candidate."
