The Final Stretch

ZOGBY SATURDAY: Republican John McCain has pulled back within the margin of error… McCain outpolled Obama 48% to 47% in Friday, one day, polling. He is beginning to cut into Obama’s lead among independents, is now leading among blue collar voters, has strengthened his lead among investors and among men, and is walloping Obama among NASCAR voters.

I don't take much stock in poll numbers, but I keep remembering someone saying a while back that Obama would need to be at least 10 points ahead in the poll going into election day to win. I guess that is what has been keeping me optimistic and I am oh so very optimistic.

Obama has now called those of us who don't believe in socialism, trying to make a "virtue out of selfishness." Ugh.

Obama says he didn't know his aunt was here illegally. You know, when I read stuff like this at this point in the election, I really think that Hillary must have been way off her game in the primaries.

Isn't it intersting that when it comes to controversial things in Obama's life, he "just didn't know." He didn't know that his pastor of 20 yrs was a racist lunatic. He didn't know that Ayers was a unrepentent domestic terrorist.

I'm posting this video of Gov. Schwarzenegger doing a pretty good job of slamming Obama and liberal giveaways. I have to say that I don't like Schwarzenegger and never have, but he does have some chutzpah to say things like this when his in laws are the Kennedys and he married to Maria Shriver(who I dislike even more than Arnold). Anyway, he is good here:
