Who was Jennifer Hudson’s brother?

Jason Hudson’s friends can gaze at the front yard of his big white wooden house and still see him picking up the mustard bottle. Remember Big J out there cooking ribs? How that grill smoked?

And look at that Ford Escort. Jason’s mama had that car for a million years. Those tires have been flat forever.

Except for the balloons and teddy bears that crowded the wire fence, or the TV crews that shivered on the sidewalk, the Hudson home looked normal Tuesday, four days after Jason and his mother were shot to death inside.

Two stories and an attic. Oval glass in the front door. A cold October sun lighting up the gold leaves of a slender maple tree.

Jason’s friends could still envision his dad out at the curb when they were kids, head tucked under a car hood, humming, a cigarette stuck in his lips.

They could still hear Jason’s mom, telling them to cut the music down, could see her refusing to speak to any of his friends she didn’t like or open the door to anyone she didn’t know. (more…)

The Age of Obama

Oct 29, 2008 Author: VP | Filed under: Opinions, Politics

The ‘Decade of Greed,’ etc., R.I.P.

Source Link:

Nineteen eighty-two was a lucky time (as your columnist can attest) to be leaving college. Whatever faults various authorities find in the “decade of greed,” which was followed by another decade of greed, it marked the start of 25 years of exceptional prosperity and opportunity. Freer trade and the epochal joining of a couple billion Chinese and others into the global division of labor played a role. The ideas of Reagan and Thatcher, bringing the private sector back to a place of honor, played a role.

Is the age of Obama the beginning of a less golden age? We cast no aspersion on the man or his program. Mr. Obama, in his short career, has not strongly associated himself with any policy idea. His relation to his own proposals during the campaign has been pleasantly noncommittal, if generally liberal (as voters and the media are only now getting around to noticing).

His rise offers little insight either. His Senate primary and general election races were smoothed by the serendipitous bowing out of formidable opponents in each case, in divorce-related “scandals.” His presidential hopes have been turned overnight into landslide hopes by a financial crisis that has left the public angry and confused, though not one that plays to any expertise of Mr. Obama’s.

Yet if he wins next week, it could be with a sweeping mandate to decide, er, what his mandate will be. He’s a presidential vehicle perfectly designed, or self-designed, to be driven by history, rather than driving it. And he comes just at the moment when, overnight, crashing down is just about every normal restraint against intrusive, redistributing, regulating government. (more…)

Muzzling Joe Biden

The Quiet Man

By Dana Milbank
Source Link:

OCALA, Fla., Oct. 28 Joe Biden spoke to supporters here for 14 minutes and 25 seconds Tuesday morning — and that’s big news.

Until he became Barack Obama’s running mate in August, Biden could take that long just to say “good morning”; now the Democratic senator from Delaware has to give his entire stump speech in that span. On Capitol Hill he used to speak endlessly on any subject to anybody who asked for his view (and many who did not); now he has to read his words carefully from a teleprompter, squinting into the bright sunlight to avoid missing a syllable of the text that had been written for him by his Obama handlers.

The muzzling of Biden seems unnatural and inhumane, like taking a proud lion into captivity. Biden, who once scolded Sarah Palin for ducking reporters, hasn’t given a news conference since Sept. 7. The king of the rhetorical jungle hasn’t taken questions from voters in a town hall forum since Sept. 10, when he famously said that Hillary Clinton is “more qualified than I am to be vice president” and “might have been a better pick than me.” He doesn’t even do much chitchat with supporters at events since he was caught on tape on one such occasion contradicting Obama’s energy policy.

Now even Palin takes questions from reporters on her campaign plane. But the wordiest man in Washington has to make his remarks short, sweet and canned. (more…)

John McCains Latest AD attacking Obama’s Celebrity

Oct 29, 2008 Author: VP | Filed under: Politics

The McCain team launched another Ad today that drives home the point, that behind all of the Glitz and Glitter of Barack Obama, he lacks the experience and judgment America needs to be President of the United States. They make it a point to say at the end of the clip, he is not ready YET. I guess they are attempting the old Hillary Clinton trick, telling the voters that if you elect John McCain now, you can elect Barack Obama next election cycle.
At this stage of the game I don’t know if this election is a shoe-in or not, the polls say Obama by a landslide, but I’m thinking it will be close. My opinions are not based on nothing but a hunch. – Veston

Campaign on Empty

Probably, John McCain and Sarah Palin will lose this election. Certainly, they deserve to.

With a campaign designed more to play on insecurities than to promote ideas, McCain and Palin have practically framed Barack Obama’s “closing argument” for him. “The question in this election is not ‘Are you better off than you were four years ago?’ ” Obama told an audience yesterday in Canton, Ohio. “We know the answer to that. The real question is, ‘Will this country be better off four years from now?’ ” The Republicans don’t even try to formulate an answer, and with Obama’s lead growing by the day, it’s hard to imagine what might turn things around.

An “October surprise” international incident might end up working against McCain rather than for him, given his all-over-the-map reaction to the financial crisis. The vaunted Republican get-out-the-vote machine looks almost puny beside Obama’s next-generation juggernaut.

There’s always race, of course, and we can’t say with certainty whether there’s some huge, hidden racist vote out there just waiting to emerge next Tuesday. My hunch is that race is already factored into the poll numbers — that it has already been “discounted by the market,” to use financial jargon that’s fashionable these days. I believe that race is a subtext of Republican attack words such as “dangerous” or “socialist,” and that it’s the real substance of the attempt to paint Obama as unknown, mysterious, exotic and somehow alien. My guess is that voters who are responsive to this kind of coded appeal have already responded. (more…)

Bill Burton calls FOX out for its agenda-driven political programming, enraging FOX anchor Megyn Kelly. It’s amazing how calm Burton manages to remain throughout the whole thing. He showed no anger whatsoever, which seemed to provoke Kelly into an even deeper fury.
