I’ve been laying low today, once again playing catch up with business and rest. Ah, yes rest… Something I never get enough of. Suffice to say running a small business and a blog keeps me very busy and rarely take much time for myself. That said, here’s the Weekend Reading List:
The Gallup Daily shows a Clinton upswing in recent days: Clinton 46%, Obama 45%:
On TalkLeft from Jeralyn: “Bill Clinton Explains Falsities in Obama’ s Newest Ad” and Political Radar reports, “Bill Clinton Says Criticisms of Hillary’s Healthcare Plan are ‘Bull’.” CNN has more on the healthcare attacks ads battle in PA. No matter how Obama tries to slice it, Hillary Clinton still has the winning healthcare plan — even Elizabeth Edwards knows that.
If you think the conservative base won’t continue to work “Bittergate” think again… Mark Steyn has at it: “Guns and God? Hell, yes.” And Arthur C. Brooks chimes in on the WSJ with this one: “Trigger Happy.”
In the NY Times on Friday, David Brooks recants “How Obama Fell to Earth.”
AP News reports Michigan is moving forward regardless of the fact that no decision has been made to seat the delegates: “Mich. Democrats fill 1st round of national convention spots.”
Obama does the doublespeak thing again… hitting Clinton with his own brand of projectionism. For someone who decries “petty, trivial slash and burn, back and forth, tit for tat politics,” Barack Obama sure does engage in them frequently as CNN’s Political Ticker notes: Clinton camp: Obama was a ‘hypocrite from day one’.
Let’s not forget we have other important races to win in November: “Democrats Widen Fundraising Lead for Senate Campaigns.”
Got gas??? If you do, you probably don’t have much spare change: “Pump prices rise to new record.”
Got trash??? NPR reports: “Beach Cleanup Tally: 6 Million Pounds of Trash.”
In North Carolina Friday: “Clinton and longtime friend Angelou sit, have a chat about issues the nation and voters face.”
Got links to share??? Post them in the comments.
On Buck Naked Politics, Damozel notes in a Must Read post: The Media’s Role in the Obama Phenomenon as a Sign of a Deeper Trend.
