Legislative Accomplishments of Barack Obama

September 4, 2008 · Filed Under Sarah Palin ·  

“We’ve all heard his dramatic speeches before devoted followers.

And there is much to like and admire about our opponent.

But listening to him speak, it’s easy to forget that this is a man who has authored two memoirs but not a single major law or reform - not even in the state senate.”

Sarah Palin in her acceptance speech for the 2008 Republican vice presidential nomination on September 3, 2008, at the Xcel Energy Center in Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota.

Speaking of which, many folks have heard about Barack Obama’s two best-selling memoirs (”The Audacity of Hope” and “Dreams from My Father”), but how many have read it?

Read and hear some excerpts that you haven’t heard in the news.

Barack Obama on Running for President

August 31, 2008 · Filed Under Ethics ·  

“You know, I am a believer in… in knowing what you’re doing when you apply for a job. Uh, and I think that… if I were seriously to consider running on a national ticket, I would essentially have to start now, before having served a day in the Senate.

Now there may be some people who are comfortable doing that, but I am not one of those people.”

— Barack Obama, 2004

I guess he is one of those people. And, of course, you can believe all the promises he’s making now.

August 31, 2008 · Filed Under News, Podcasts ·  

The twelfth installment of Red Hat Blue Hat featured Mike Allen, Shawn Collins, Todd Crawford, Sam Harrelson, and Tim Jones.

This installment focused on the Democratic National Convention with a discussion on Hillary Clinton’s speech, Joe Biden at VP candidate, the skill of Bill Clinton’s oratory, and lack thereof from Nancy “Can We Drill Your Brain?” Pelosi.

Also, there was talk of the likely VP pick for John McCain… Hutchison, Lieberman, Pawlenty, Romney, somebody else?

Then, we moved on to some geek talk and the uses of Twitter, and other tools that can be harnessed by political campaigns.

We wound up on the uses of social media by each campaign, as well as which is less in touch, and whether any President is actually in touch.

Episode 12 runs 68 minutes, but we have no plans to recreate ‘68.

Obama’s Ludacris Politics

August 5, 2008 · Filed Under John McCain, News, Opinion ·  

The eleventh installment of RedHatBlueHat featured Mike Allen, Shawn Collins, Todd Crawford, Jeff Doak, Sam Harrelson, and Tim Jones (until a storm knocked him off).

This installment tackled the latest song to drop by rapper Ludacris in honor of Obama, Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska facing a seven-count indictment accusing him of accepting financial gifts that weren’t reported on his financial disclosure forms, and the rumors of a John Edwards love child.

The modest growth of the U.S. economy for the second quarter was debated, as well as a heated discussion on the torture of terrorists.

The RedHatBlueHat crew also talks about whether they’d like to have a beer with Barack Obama or John McCain, the issue of Obama cancelling a visit to wounded U.S. troops in Germany, and what there is to like about John McCain.

Finally, the chat turned to whether polls are accurate at this point, and speculation over Vice-President prospects on both sides.

Episode 11 runs 75 minutes of ludicrous political banter.
