McCain's actions on the bailout bill are either a brilliant tactical move or a complete act of desperation - I'm not certain which, but we should know in a few days.
Someone is playing games with Intrade. Check out the transactions at Obama and Hillary. Almost mechanical.
David Axelrod astroturfing with intrade ?Who knows...
didn't that betting site predict last fall, Mrs. Clinton was a slam dunk lock at 90%, gasoline futures were going to be $5.00 a gallon this summer, and crude oil contracts were going to flip at $200?yes friends, get my midnite television cable channel show slam dunk lock of the week for free.... President Barack H. Obama.drive thru.
Larry Kudlow is a SOCIALIST
I'm afraid McCain has effectively committed campaign suicide with his phony attempt to "suspend" his campaign for the "good" of the situation. And believe me, I say that as someone who supports McCain over Obama, when given the choices.I think he's also missed a golden opportunity to speak out more against the so-called bail-outs, leaving many of us who are against that sort of thing wondering why we should even care anymore.The only bright spot in all of this is that a good number of congressional Republicans are actually starting to act like...Republicans again. Too bad McCain can't do more of the same.
anon 3:21:"Larry Kudlow is a SOCIALIST"LOL. right on. to paraphrase: there are no [free market proponents] in the foxholes.i will say this, tho. BRAVO TO THE REPUBS IN CONGRESS for standing up to bush and the demos on the shameful givaway of tax money to wall street.
The only bright spot in all of this is that a good number of congressional Republicans are actually starting to act like...Republicans again.I'm writing in Shelby.
does InTrade have any credibility? it sure doesn't *seem* like it does. anyone seen an analysis of how many times it accurately predicted a result?
