Considering the most recent videos I’ve put up (here and here), I admit that I must be in a nostalgic mood. But as they say, “oldies are goodies”, and this video does a great job of explaining the role of the three branches of government. I think the correlating of our federal government with a three ring circus couldn’t be more perfect- DC certainly has its share of clowns and performing animals.
Obama has run and, surprisingly, sustained one of the best managed campaigns since at least Reagan ‘84, but I believe he made a significant mistake by going after McCain with recent “Joe Plumber” attack lines. “A plumber is the guy he is fighting for”, Obama said sarcastically to a revved up crowd Thursday. Ironically, if Obama truly convinces the median voter that McCain is “fighting for plumbers”, then he will likely lose Ohio and Pennslyvania.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has released a video marking the one-year anniversary of his 13-hour filibuster of CIA nominee John Brennan. Though it didn’t stop Brennan’s confirmation, it did raise awareness to the Obama administration’s drone strikes policy and, almost single-handedly, changed public opinion on the issue. You see our coverage of the filibuster here and here. You can also watch the filibuster, if you have 13 hours to spare, in full via C-SPAN.
This is a great video follow up to the full-page ad CATO published listing hundreds of economists who don’t believe that a “stimulus package” is the best option for American taxpayers.
