HE PUT HIS FOOT IN HIS MOUTH ONCE AGAIN!
NOW HE'S TRYING TO LOOK LIKE HE'S ALREADY THE
PRESIDENT WITH THIS SITUATION IN GEORGIA/RUSSIA
I THINK HE SHOULD LET THE CURRENT PRESIDENT SPEAK
ON THIS SITUATION, AND HE SHOULD RELAX!

There is some truth to the ads. As we said, as many as 8,200 workers in Wilmington are likely to lose their jobs as a result of DHL's decision to outsource to UPS. It's also true that in 2003, some senators supported legislation that was designed to make German-owned DHL's purchase of U.S.-owned Airborne Express less attractive. McCain did in fact oppose the legislation. And it's true that DHL paid $185,000 to the firm of Rick Davis, McCain's campaign manager, to lobby for the merger (the $590,000 cited in the AFL-CIO mailer represents the entire amount that Davis' firm collected from DHL during Davis' tenure, most of which went for lobbying on other measures).

Phil Smith is clearly an Obamacon. He bashes Bush and McCain its part of his shtick on this blog.
Read The Case Against Barack Obama its #5 on NY Times and #1 on Amazon.com. It does a credible job of vetting who Obama is. It is something the drivebys haven't done since Obama announced in Springfield in the winter of 07.
They have given Obama a pass now read who he really is!

Phil gets excited, Jerry, that's true.
But, how can YOU push Corsi's book?
With a straight face?
The status on the Times' best seller list is artifically generated with bulk buys.
Media Matters did a great refutation of the author on Larry King the other night
