Politico: "California Democrat Nancy Pelosi may be trying to save the planet - but the rank and file in her party increasingly are just trying to save their political hides when it comes to gas prices as Republicans apply more and more rhetorical muscle. But what looks like intraparty tension on the surface is part of an intentional strategy in which Pelosi takes the heat on energy policy, while behind the scenes she's encouraging vulnerable Democrats to express their independence if it helps them politically, according to Democratic aides on and off Capitol Hill... Asked if Congress will produce a comprehensive energy bill in September before Congress adjourns again for elections, [Rep. Nick] Rahall [D-WV] replied, 'This year? No.'...'There is no crisis on our side of the aisle,' a top House Democratic leadership aide said. 'We have a plan, and we will stick to it.'"
If you want to be a blogger for John McCain (and, hopefully, for other outstanding GOP candidates, please contact me at: TalkTop65@aol.com. If you've never blogged before, ask me how to do it, and I'll give you a simple explanation.
Along with others, I'll be sending out massive mailings asking people to support McCain and others. One thing you can do right now is to write a letter-to-the-editor of your local newspaper. Keep the letter factual, hard-hitting, and short (200 words or less). Be sure to provide your full name, address, and e-mail address. Generally, you can send a letter via e-mail. Clicking on the following link(s) will show you where to send your e-mail. To the greatest degree possible, compose it in your own words. To check that it sounds okay, please read it aloud before you send it. Remember, weekly papers and small dailies (e.g., The Beaver County Times) tend to get read more fully than the bigger dailies.

AUTHOR ANDY MARTIN EXPRESSES CONCERN THAT THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WAS USED TO "LAUNDER" THE OBAMA/DAVIS CONNECTION( Note: Andy Martin's recent appearance on Clintons4McCain Blog Talk Radio is available by going to the BTR site.)
(August 8, 2008)
Legendary Chicago corruption fighter, columnist, media critic and Obama adversary Andy Martin will hold a 2:00 P.M. Washington, DC news conference Friday, August 8th to demand that Senator Barack Obama make a full disclosure of his relationship with leftist and putative Communist Frank Marshall Davis. Martin is concerned that Obama has used the Associated Press to "launder" the Davis/Obama relationship. Martin is the author of the controversial bestseller Obama: The Man Behind The Mask."Frank Marshall Davis was acknowledged by Obama as perhaps the most significant mentor in Obama's adolescent years," Martin says. "The Obama/Davis connection is a ticking time bomb for the Democratic Party. The matter has not received the attention it deserves. A recent story by the Associated Press seems to be an effort by the Obama campaign to launder Davis' alleged Communist Party connections. Once again, Senator Obama appears to be trying to deflect attention from the peculiar influences which shaped his childhood."My column, which will be released at the news conference, calls on Senator Obama to make a full disclosure of his relationship with Davis," Martin states.FULL DISCLOSURE FROM ANDY MARTIN: I am opposing Senator Obama's election and have become Executive Director of The Stop Obama Coalition, http://StopObamaCoalition.com. By default, I have become the national leader of the independent anti-Obama movement. I am not acting as either a Democrat or Republican. I have had no contact whatsoever with the McCain Campaign. I am acting as an independent American citizen who sincerely believes Obama is not the man we need in the Oval Office. We are going to run a very dynamic and aggressive campaign against Obama. I will continue to write my columns for ContrarianCommentary.com.Book orders: http://www.OrangeStatePress.com.
