Conservative Reaction


On a conference call this morning, McCain economic advisor Doug Holtz-Eagin reportedly said that this plan could involve rewriting the mortgages for "literally millions of people."


--Keep blaming the media. Matt Lewis sez that in the future, to make Prez debates fair, "For every Gwen Ifill and Tom Brokaw, there ought to be a Bill Bennett or a George Will"

 --The IMF predicts 2009 US economic growth at a near-depression 0.1%. The all-important LIBOR rates continue to soar.

Interviewed on MSNBC, Obama strategist David Axelrod revealed that 4 million individuals have now donated to the Obama camp. That’s up from 2.5 million last month, meaning -- if our math is correct -- that 1.5 million new people gave money to Obama. So how big will Obama’s September fundraising haul be? It looks like it might be BIG. Will it top the 100-million mark? (1.5 million new donors at 100 a pop… Well, you get the math.) 

--Erick Erickson claims that the McCain campaign actually has a super-sophisticated plan in which numerous seemingly innocuous scary-Obama accusations will coalesce around a dramatic "reveal" a la The Usual Suspects:

And the separate plots begin to connect. The ACORN narrative, the Ayers narrative, the foreign donor narrative — they intersect, combine, tangle, and paint a very ugly picture of Barack Obama. What Obama did on the board with the Annenberg money and what he'd do with your money come in to the narrative. But I'm told there will be a surprise twist in this plot that will make it even neater to watch unfold. The next month is going to be tumultuous and fun. The October Surprise is that there is no "surprise." It's been in front of us all along. Only now the various story lines are getting connected.
