The Ed Morrissey Show: Week in Review with Duane “Generalissimo” Patterson

posted at 1:30 pm on June 20, 2008 by Ed Morrissey

Today, on the Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), Duane “Generalissimo” Patterson joins me to co-host our Friday Week In Review. We’ll drill into the energy policies of both candidates, and we’ll look into Barack Obama’s staunch support of public financing for elections, as demonstrated by his rejection of them. Duane will give us a sneak peak at tonight’s Hugh Hewitt show, and much, much more!

Now you can join the conversation in the chat room! Be sure to register at Ustream to participate in our raucous live-chat sessions…

I won’t be able to attend the show today, heading to Las Vegas to meet up with my son and family.

We need to get somebody to put some ACTUAL numbers together about:

How many jobs increased drilling would bring
How much a stronger dollar would improve oil prices
How big an improvement in our OWN economy comes with a reduced trade deficit.

Also, HOW is Mexico’s economy doing now that their oil take has TRIPLED with the increase in oil? Can they take their workers back? That’ll make more jobs available here.

Ed, please make sure you play John McCain’s comments that he too “didn’t love America” over and over just like you, Hugh Hewitt, Sean Hannity and all others did for Michelle Obama.

McCain… “I didn’t love America until I was held captive”. He has said this over and over in the past decade (uncovered by Dan Abrams at MSNBC). Now let’s see Hot Air post the video / audio of just that quote, no context just like what you did on Michelle Obama.

Video here:

This means John McCain was at the US Naval Academy and while there he didn’t love this country. I expect this to be covered with the same hysterical 24/7 round the clock fervor that Michelle Obama’s comments were.

Michelle Obama’s comment was in context of her view of the political situation in this country during her adult lifetime, and McCain’s was in the context of being deprived of freedom and liberty while being held prisoner in the most horrific conditions. But context doesn’t matter. I expect to see a Michelle Malkin column next week trashing McCain for not loving this country.

There is an important difference between John McCain’s becoming proud of his country and Michelle Obama’s. John McCain learned to be proud of his country when he was forced to live in captivity in a dictatorship; when he was denied the liberty and the rights of equality that make up a big part of the American Dream.

Michelle Obama, on the other hand, appears to only have become proud of her country once here husband had a credible shot at the Presidency. Michelle Obama has enjoyed the many blessings of this country and only now feels proud that her country might now bestow upon her the rank and privlege to which she feels entitled.

The difference between John McCain and Michelle Obama is that John McCain feels grateful; Michelle Obama feels entitled.
