Just want to say that The Daily Times was spot on in the endorsement for Fred Thompson for president on MAY 20, 2007. First, ole Fred had not even declared that he was running for president when the sterling endorsement was made (he was too busy finishing up his TV appearance). Second, the declaration date was not even close to a primary. Third, it goes to show how idiotic the editor can be at the daily times. I DEMAND A RETRACTION OF THE ENDORSEMENT!

I would link the article but I'll be damned if I'll give a cent to the DT for retrieving archived articles. Someone can if they have access.

true editing

Funny how they can sometimes be ahead of the story and at other times they can take a story and act like it never happened.

They Were Just As Correct Then...

...as it is right now, today.

“I believe that conservatives beat liberals only when we challenge their outdated positions, not embrace them. This is not a time for philosophical flexibility, it is a time to stand up for what we believe in,” - Fred Thompson

God help us ALL

Edwards just dropped out. I like Obama, but he's a blank page, a huge question mark. Unity? Okay, unity. I'm for it. But who is gonna take on Corporate K-Street Lobbyists? Who? Hillary will definately fold to K-Street. Remember the "not all Lobbyists are bad" comment? If that's not an Apocolyptical statement, then Pigs fly. McCain already stated that he will do everything he can to keep this Exxon War going on in the former Nation of Iraq, bleeding our severely sickened economy. Where does Obama stand? Does HE have the mettle to take on Corporate Prostitutes, and give us back our Constitution? I am crushed. My head hurts, and I'm all choked up. Our Nation CANNOT survive another 4 years of Corporate Prostitution.

viva Evo Morales

Obama and K-Street

Well, take it for what it is worth, but Obama has been refusing money from lobbyists registered with the US Congress. It's certainly not a full-on rejection of corporatism, but at least he's trying to keep the lobbyists he would be dealing with as President or Senator at something of a remove. Clinton hasn't made even this half-assed attempt. In fact she shook down lobbyists pretty heavily for $4600 apiece (primary and general election contributions) according to all reports.

One of the things I like about Obama is the sheer number of individual contributors he has to his campaign. He has well over half a million donors. That's just impressive.
