Unfortunately, Senator Barack Obama, is comparison challenged–compares apples to watermelons.

Remember when he said there were 57 states, I guess he was confusing Heinz’s 57 varieties with the number of states.

Obama Claims He’s Visited 57 States


LOL: Barack Obama say there are 57 States

Too bad Senator Obama did not visit Alaska, may be he would have learned something that is not in his teleprompter speech for a change.

We can only hope.

Senator, please at least visit the State of Alaska web site, by clicking on the following link:

State of Alaska

Now Senator Obama is trying to compare his executive experience of running his Presidential campaign to when Sarah Palin was Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, for two terms from 1996 to 2002, with about 50 city employees.

Barack On Palin’s Experience- uh, uh, I’m A Great Campaigner

American people with common sense, instead of a law degree from Harvard University, would think the more appropriate comparison would be the size of Alaska’s state budget and number of employees to the budget of your campaign and number of campaign workers.

Although admittedly running a political campaign is not the same thing as running your own business, city, state, or military command, which is what the American people usually expect of someone running for public office, especially the office of President and Commander-in-Chief.

Governor Sarah Palin has run her own business, a city, a state, and commanded the Alaskian National Guard.

You do not have this experience Senator Obama.

Fred Thompson nailed it on Senator Obama’s so-called “experience”:

Fred Thompson SLAMS Obama at the RNC! 

When it comes taxes, Senator Obama loves them all and likes to raise every last one of them:

Obama Tax Plan


Barack Obama on Taxes 


LOL: Barack Obama is a freaking Socialist…

He does not understand the importance of wealth creation in the private sector or the adverse impact higher taxes would have on business and job growth.

He has little if any grasp of basic economics and how the world or economies work.

Now if you would like to compare apples to apples, instead of apples to watermelons, let us do so.

Yes Senator Obama, Governor Palin was Mayor of Wasilla, while you were running the Chicago Annenberg Challenge and wasting millions of charitable contributions with your very good terrorist bomber friend, Bill Ayers of Weather Underground infamy.

Once Senator Obama learned that a reporter was researching the documents of his “experience” with the Chicago Annenberg Challenge Challenge (CAC), the Chicago Mayor Daley came to his rescue to stop access to these documents.


The Annenberg Challenge 

“Announced in December 1993 at the White House, Ambassador Walter H. Annenberg’s $500 million “Challenge to the Nation” became the largest public/private endeavor in U.S. history dedicated to improving public schools.Eighteen locally designed Challenge projects operated in 35 states, funding 2,400 public schools that served more than 1.5 million students and 80,000 teachers. Over 1,600 businesses, foundations, colleges and universities, and individuals contributed $600 million in private matching funds. 

Each Challenge project fit unique local conditions. Each was designed by a local planning group comprised of educators, foundation officers, and community and business leaders. Independent, non-profit entities – in most instances, specially created organizations that evolved from the collaborative planning groups and led by a community governing board – ran the projects.   

Grants ranging from $10 million to $53 million were awarded to sites in Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, the San Francisco Bay Area, South Florida (encompassing Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties), and the Rural Challenge, which worked in hundreds of communities …”  


Chicago Annenberg Challenge

“The Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC) (also referred to as the Annenberg Challenge to Chicago) was a public-private partnership founded in 1995 that existed from intended to improve school performance by what it called “on the ground” investments in the form of professional development and technical assistance. Sponsored by the Annenberg Foundation, the CAC received a charter grant of $49.2 million in 1995.[1] The CAC’s operations were closed in 2001, and subsumed into those of the Annenberg Institute for Social Reform. …”

“…The CAC’s successful grant application was written in 1993 by William Ayers, a professor of education at the University of Illinois at Chicago.[2][3] After extensive community-based discussions also involving Anne Hallett of the Cross City Campaign for Urban School Reform, and Warren Chapman of the Joyce Foundation.

At its founding, the Annenberg Challenge was made up of three constituent parts: 


  • The Chicago School Reform Collaborative, co-chaired by William C. Ayers;
  • a Board of Directors initially recruited by the Collaborative, which was chaired from 1995 to 2000 by Barack Obama[4], at the time a practicing attorney.
  • The Chicago Schools Research Consortium, a research arm of the Challenge.

The Collaborative was the operative on the ground body of the Challenge. It was made up of representatives of various constituencies in the Chicago school reform movement. That reform movement had begun in 1987 in the wake of an unpopular strike by Chicago teachers. Bill Ayers was active in that reform effort through a group called the Alliance for Better Chicago Schools, or ABCs. ABCs was an alliance of various activists and reform groups that included the Developing Communities Project which Barack Obama headed up at the time as well as Chicago United, a business sector group, that was headed up by Thomas Ayers, father of Bill Ayers.  …”

“…Efforts to quantitatively assess the CAC’s efficacy at its stated goals appears to have generated mixed reviews. A comprehensive study by the Consortium on Chicago School Research, for example, concludes: 

” Results suggest that among the schools it supported, the Challenge had little impact on school improvement and student outcomes, with no statistically significant differences between Annenberg and non-Annenberg schools in rates of achievement gain, classroom behavior, student self-efficacy, and social competence.”[5]

Obama defends his superior record of experience

By Michelle Malkin 

 “…Even he doesn’t sound like he believes himself anymore. ….”   



Alaska (IPA: /əˈlæskə/, Russian: Аляска Alyaska) is a state in the United States of America, in the northwest of the North American continent. It is the largest U.S. state by area, and the 6th wealthiest (per capita income).[3][4]

The area that became Alaska was purchased from the Russian Empire after Congress concluded its resources could be vitally important to the nation’s future growth. The United States completed the purchase on March 30, 1867, for $7.2 million at 2 U.S. cents per acre, about 5 U.S. cents per hectare. When adjusted for inflation, the total sum paid equates to approximately $360 million in 2008 dollars.The land went through several administrative changes before becoming an organized territory on May 11, 1912 and the 49th state of the U.S. on January 3, 1959. The name “Alaska” was already introduced in the Russian colonial time, when it was only used for the peninsula and is derived from the Aleut alaxsxaq, meaning “the mainland,” or more literally, “the object towards which the action of the sea is directed.”[5] It is also known as Alyeska, the “great land”, an Aleut word derived from the same root.

Heinz 57

“Heinz 57 is a shortened, popular form of the “57 Varieties” slogan of Pittsburgh‘s H. J. Heinz Company. In its early days, the company wanted to advertise the great number of choices of canned and bottled foods it offered for sale. Although the company had more than 60 products in 1892, the number 57 was chosen because the numbers “5” and “7” held special significance to Heinz. The number “5” was Henry John Heinz’s lucky number and the number “7” was his wife’s lucky number. [1] The company now has more than 1,100 products.
Although the company does not often use the slogan on its products today, the number 57 remains pervasive in its corporate culture and is known worldwide (although younger generations are markedly less familiar with it). In the United States and Britain, the number 57 is still printed on the packaging of various Heinz products.
The slogan is printed on Heinz pickle pins that are distributed by the millions.

Heinz 57 is also the name of one variety of Heinz steak sauce

When Daley says shhh, library is quiet on Obama

John Kass

“…writer Stanley Kurtz—researching an article for the National Review about connections between Barack Obama and former Weather Underground terrorist William Ayers—made a big mistake.
The poor man took a wrong turn on the Chicago Way. Now he’s lost.
Kurtz’s research was to be done in a special library run by the University of Illinois at Chicago. The library has 132 boxes full of documents pertaining to the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, a foundation vested heavily in school reform.
Kurtz believes the documents may show Obama and Ayers were close—far closer than Obama has acknowledged—over oodles of foundation gifts on education projects the two worked on together.






























Mayor Palin: A Rough Record


In the end, her political journey from banner-waving GOP social conservative to maverick reformer may simply be about good timing. It’s what former journalist Bill McAllister, who now works for Palin’s press staff, used to call “Sarah-dipity” — that uncanny gift of knowing exactly what voters are looking for at a particular moment. And, of course, the political will to give them what they want.”,8599,1837918,00.html 


Next, the Obama thugs came for Stanley Kurtz

By Michelle Malkin 

“…First, they came for TV stations daring to air an independent ad about Barack Obama and unrepentant Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers.

Next, they came for GOP donors.

Now, they are shamelessly attacking National Review investigative journalist Stanley Kurtz — one of conservatism’s most thoughtful and penetrating writers on academic and educational affairs. Kurtz has been at the forefront probing Obama’s relationships with left-wing ideologues. It was his public information request and public call for help that led to the University of Illinois – Chicago finally releasing tons of files that shed light on the Obama/Ayers working relationship. The Obama camp is condemning Kurtz in harsher terms than it ever condemned the terrorist Ayers. Kurtz has been attacked now as a “right-wing hatchet man” and “slimy character assassin.” …”

Anti-Obama Books Top Best-Seller Lists

Susan Davis

“…Books critical of expected Democratic nominee Barack Obama are topping the best-seller lists, including “The Obama Nation” by Jerome Corsi, currently No. 1 on the New York Times best-seller list for hardcover nonfiction.

No. 5 on the NYT’s list is “Fleeced” by Dick Morris and Eileen McGann, a book breathlessly subtitled “How Barack Obama, Media Mockery of Terrorist Threats, Liberals Who Want to Kill Talk Radio, the Do-Nothing Congress, Companies That Help Iran, and Washington Lobbyists for Foreign Governments Are Scamming Us … and What to Do About It.”

The Associated Press reported last week that three anti-Obama books were in the top 20 list on Currently, Corsi’s book as well as “The Case Against Barack Obama: The Unlikely Rise and Unexamined Agenda of the Media’s Favorite Candidate” by David Freddoso remain on that list. …”  

Chicago Annenberg Challenge Shutdown?
A cover-up in the making?By Stanley Kurtz

“…Although the press has been notably lax about pursuing the matter, the full story of the Obama-Ayers relationship calls the truth of Obama’s account seriously into question. When Obama made his first run for political office, articles in both the Chicago Defender and the Hyde Park Herald featured among his qualifications his position as chairman of the board of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, a foundation where Ayers was a founder and guiding force. Obama assumed the Annenberg board chairmanship only months before his first run for office, and almost certainly received the job at the behest of Bill Ayers. During Obama’s time as Annenberg board chairman, Ayers’s own education projects received substantial funding. Indeed, during its first year, the Chicago Annenberg Challenge struggled with significant concerns about possible conflicts of interest. With a writ to aid Chicago’s public schools, the Annenberg challenge played a deeply political role in Chicago’s education wars, and as Annenberg board chairman, Obama clearly aligned himself with Ayers’s radical views on education issues. With Obama heading up the board and Ayers heading up the other key operating body of the Annenberg Challenge, the two would necessarily have had a close working relationship for years (therefore “exchanging ideas on a regular basis”). So when Ayers and Dorhn hosted that kickoff for the first Obama campaign, it was not a random happenstance, but merely further evidence of a close and ongoing political partnership. Of course, all of this clearly contradicts Obama’s dismissal of the significance of his relationship with Ayers.

This much we know from the public record, but a large cache of documents housed in the Richard J. Daley Library at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), is likely to flesh out the story. That document cache contains the internal files of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge. The records in question are extensive, consisting of 132 boxes, containing 947 file folders, a total of about 70 linear feet of material. Not only would these files illuminate the working relationship between Obama and Bill Ayers, they would also provide significant insight into a web of ties linking Obama to various radical organizations, including Obama-approved foundation gifts to political allies. Obama’s leadership style and abilities are also sure to be illuminated by the documents in question. …”    

Barack Obama, Aspiring Commissar
By the Editors


“…Bluntly, Obama has lied about his relationship with Ayers, whom he now dismisses as “a guy who lives in my neighborhood.” Ayers and Obama have made joint appearances together; they have argued together for “reforms” of the criminal justice system to make it more criminal-friendly; Obama gushed with praise for Ayers’ 1997 polemical book on the Chicago courts; and they sat together for three years on the board of the Woods Fund, a left-wing enterprise that distributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to their ideological allies. Most significant, they worked closely together on the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC).The CAC was a major education reform project, proposed by Ayers, which was underwritten by a $49.2 million grant from the Annenberg Foundation, complemented by another $100 million in private and public funding. The project ran for about five years, beginning in 1995. As the liberal researcher Steve Diamond has recounted, Ayers ran its operational arm, the “Chicago School Reform Collaborative.” Obama, then a 33-year-old, third-year associate at a small law firm, having no executive experience, was brought in to chair the board of directors, which oversaw all “fiscal matters.” 

By the time the CAC’s operations were wound down in 2001 it had doled out more than $100 million in grants but had failed to achieve any improvement in the Chicago schools. What little is known about the grants Obama oversaw is troubling. As Diamond relates, one of the first CAC awards in 1995 was $175,000 for the “Small Schools Workshop,” which had been founded by Ayers and was then headed by Mike Klonsky. It was only the beginning of the CAC’s generous funding of Klonsky — a committed Maoist who had been an Ayers comrade in the radical Students for a Democratic Society (the forerunner of Ayers’ Weatherman terrorist organization), and who hosted a “social justice” blog on the Obama campaign website until his writings were hastily purged in June after Diamond called attention to them. …”
