45 years ago, Ronal Reagan gave a speech in support of then-presidential candidate Barry Goldwater and it may be more salient now than it was then.

For some reason, a Barack Obama quote from January 21st, 2008 comes to mind:

I've spent a lifetime fighting Ronald Reagan's policies.
- Barack Obama

That would mean he disagrees with at least the majority of what Reagan said in this 1964 speech.

This ad will continue to hurt Crist and bolster Rubio because it serves to put the former in the same box as Obama, and rightfully so. Crist is opposed to offshore drilling and supported the $787 Billion stimulus bill as he hugged Barack Obama in a demonstration of that support.

Rubio has exploited "the hug" in an ad that will hurt Crist. As Obama's poll numbers continue to fall, look for Rubio's to rise because part of his strategy is obviously to tie the put the two on the same sinking ship. Have you seen Obama's poll numbers lately?

Another thing this ad does is demonstrate what's wrong with the stance of Gingrich and Steele which is party before movement.

The American people seem to be rejecting that idea very strongly, looking for a new direction.


Though still too early to draw conclusions, the nephew of sitting president Roberto Micheletti has been found dead in his country. Enzo Micheletti was not just found dead. His body was found with his hands tied behind his back and he appears to have been executed. The BBC reports:
The nephew of the interim President of Honduras Roberto Micheletti has been found dead in what the police are calling an execution-style killing.

Enzo Micheletti's body was discovered on Sunday in woodland near Choloma, 250 km north of the capital, Tegucigalpa.

Police say his hands were tied behind his back and his body was riddled with bullets.
The TIMES OF INDIA is also reporting on the story as National Police spokesman Orlin Cerrato provided more details about another man that was killed.
Col. Concepcion Jimenez was gunned down Sunday night in front of his Tegucigalpa house....Col. Jimenez died Sunday night at Tegucigalpa's Military Hospital shortly after being shot while getting out of his car in front of his house in a southern district of the capital.

The suspects in the killing are "three or four young men who were in a taxi", Cerrato said.

Jimenez headed the Honduran armed forces' Industria Militar, which makes uniforms and other equipment for the military.
It will be very interesting to see how Micheletti deals with this news. While reports are that there is no evidence of a connection between the Honduran crisis and this murder, tell that to Micheletti. Until all of the facts are known, he's got to be wondering and is quite possibly being very hard on himself. As difficult as it would be, it will show an even deeper level of courage and strength if Micheletti continues to hold the hard line and not give in.

The reaction of the White House will be interesting to see as well. I can't believe there won't be sympathies expressed by the Obama administration. If there isn't, it will reveal an even deeper low.

Wow! Talk about a strong statement (not). Nearly one year after Obama was elected, Bill O'Reilly says, "I'm starting to lose a little confidence (in Obama)". Wow, Bill! That's brilliant. What took you so long?! The Frank Marshall Davis story was brought to your attention before last year's election and there were plenty of people who knew what you're just now starting to realize.

I'm not going to pretend to know what's inside O'Reilly's head but he seems to be more concerned about being perceived as middle of the road so he can alienate both sides of an issue and be above both. Giving him the benefit of the doubt, maybe he's just holding out and building capital so he can lay the hammer down with more force but if that's the case, he's doing so at his own country's peril.

Ignoring the truth on one side merely for the sake of being viewed as an independent is an ends-justify-the-means mentality. Feigning objectivity for the sake of appealing to a larger audience is disingenuous. I'm not saying that's what O'Reilly is doing but it has appeared to me that way for quite some time.

In light of that clip, Cliff Kincaid's slamming of O'Reilly at ACCURCY IN MEDIA'S 40th anniversary event on 10/23 takes on added significance.
