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 >

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 >

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 >

Weird Times, Weirder Election

"In this crazy year, the election may finally come down to how many Democrats — scared that they don’t know enough about Obama, or know too much about the Clintons — will vote for a veteran pro like McCain. Or, on the flip side, how many “true” conservatives will stay home in November to ensure that a liberal wins the White House just to prove their purity." READ MORE >

Obama: Is it all about him?

“[According to Michelle Obama,] America’s illness goes far beyond a flawed political process: “Barack knows that at some level there’s a hole in our souls.” But they can be repaired… ‘Barack Obama... is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed.' So we don’t have to work to improve our souls. Our broken souls can be fixed — by our voting for Barack Obama.” READ MORE >
