Morning Break.....Obama Out West..........

Saddleback Blowback

Many have written and believe that John McCain got the questions prior to his time on the stage Saturday evening with Rick Warren.

I will state this, he did not, but his staff did. Now the New York Times is reporting that despite Rick Warren stating that McCain was in a "cone of silence", he was not. In fact, McCain was in a motorcade on his way to the church during the Obama segment. Which means, that yes, his aides got the questions and yes, McCain knew how to answer them.

Also, did the McCain Campaign confirm Andrea Mitchell's reporting? Because they surely did not refute the allegations about McCain not being in the "cone of silence".

Which makes you question, "Did McCain lie about the 'cross in the dirt'?" Apparently, he just may have.

So, what does this mean about Rick Warren and McCain?

Warren, trying to preserve integrity and McCain an outright liar. That is what it means. And finally, the forum in the end does not mean anything. What matters are the debates coming up and McCain won't get a "sneak preview", nor will he be able to pull the crap he did Saturday night.

Missed the forum? Watch it here.


Rumor, Obama pulled in 8 million from the fundraiser Sunday in San Francisco. That is between the DNC and OFA (Obama for America).

And Obama reminded folks at the fundraiser this:

Things could get ugly in the coming weeks, he warned.

“They’ve got a whole machinery that they’re cranking out,” Obama continued. “They’ve got a book about me, that just kind of sprung full bore out of this guy’s head.”

“John McCain, all he wants to do is talk about me. They know they can’t win on the issues. So what they’ll do is they’ll try to scare people. He’s risky. He’s risky. We’re not sure.”

It’s an old playbook, he continued, but Obama said, it’s not going to work this time. “Not only do you have a candidate who doesn’t take any guff. Not only do you have a candidate who will hit back swiftly and forcefully and truthfully. But you’ve also got American people who are rising up all over the country and saying, enough is enough.”

Obama Discusses Energy Ideas With T. Boone Pickens
Barack Obama met with T. Boone Pickens, the billionaire oilman who is now pushing for the development of alternative energy.

The two men met briefly at the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno to discuss his plans for wind, solar, and other types of alternative fuel.

“Everybody knows that if we keep on going on the same track that we’re going, that we are giving our wealth away, we’re funding both sides in the war on terror. We’re going to be — over the long term — putting enormous pressure on ordinary families. … That’s what we’re going to be talking about,” Obama said before the meeting. continue


Obama is now....

Taking off the gloves....about stump speech...eating into McCain...
But Sunday, after praising the Arizona senator as a "genuine American patriot," the Democratic presidential hopeful got back to business _ methodically tearing into McCain's health care, tax and energy policies and criticizing his advisers.

"McCain says 'Here's my plan, I'm going to drill here, drill now which is something he only came up with two months ago when he started looking at polling," Obama said of McCain's energy policy.

The GOP hopeful has become a vocal proponent of offshore oil drilling as a way to ease U.S. dependence on foreign oil and has criticized Obama for failing to embrace it as a way to help bring down oil prices. Obama noted that McCain had long opposed lifting the moratorium on offshore drilling.

The Illinois senator also criticized McCain's advisers as "the same old folks that brought you George W. Bush. The same team." He noted many had been lobbyists in Washington before McCain asked them to sever all lobbying ties. continue
