The David Kirkpatrick article that analyzes evangelicals and the GOP inspired many different posts. Are evangelicals tiring of the Iraq war? And the war has just begun for Barack Obama as he gets aggressive with Hillary Clinton.
Hugh Hewitt discusses the GOP race with Fred Barnes. Barnes says the race comes down to Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney. But is this because Washington insiders prefer these candidates? Dailykos looks over the polling material of evangelicals and the GOP. Evangelical support has dropped below 50%. Which way are these voters defecting? Jonathan Martin reports on John McCain's memo questioning Giuliani's electability. I love how the campaigns write so many memos in an effort to change the conversation. Marc Ambinder decides it's time to take Ron Paul seriously in New Hampshire. Ambinder realizes it will take a small percentage to win there and that Paul could do very well.
Taylor Marsh notes that Obama supporters had hoped he would attack Clinton sooner. Obama only had to take a look at what John Edwards has been doing for months, though Edwards hasn't gained traction from going negative on Clinton. Andrew Sullivan also thinks Obama's attacks are long overdue, but Sullivan says Obama has to be aggressive, not hostile. He likes Obama and still hates Clinton from the '90s.
Power Line tries to uncover why the so-called mainstream media won't cover good news in Iraq. But if the news is so good, why aren't these same blogs calling for withdrawal? Michelle Malkin blogs about the fake FEMA press conference. You'd think this nonsense would have stopped after Katrina. I guess not. Glenn Greenwald at Salon gets an unsolicited email from Gen. David Petraeus' spokesperson in Iraq. The post continues the dialogue about the U.S. military leaking information to conservative bloggers. Tom Bevan at RealClearPolitics.com attacks Paul Krugman for his comments on the GOP and use of fear. Is it reasonable to say that the GOP has overreacted to Islamic terrorism?
