Untied For Change

Not since Michael Jackson kissed Lisa-Marie Presley has there been a more tortured embrace.

Michael Jackson/Lisa-Marie legally united for publicity – they untied themselves soon thereafter.

So it was yesterday, in a not bitter, and not clingy, small town in New Hampshire.

Hillary, gorgeous and gracious in blue, demonstrated her amazing capacity to discuss issues of importance to Americans. Yesterday Hillary quoted Winston Churchill and welcomed the future, The Americans always get around to doing the right thing after trying nearly everything else. Obama is that “everything else”.

The previous night as well as yesterday, Hillary reminded Democrats that in the past 10 national elections Democrats have won only 3 times – twice with Bill Clinton. It’s called electability.

Some rational Democrats in that not bitter, not clingy location in New Hampshire cared about electability, some hated to be reminded about electability:

Some of her supporters weren’t quite ready to let go. “We want Hillary!” a handful of Clinton fans shouted during her speech. “It’s over!” an Obama voter shot back.

* * *

Democrats who care about the issues, those that want change, those that want to win in November: Untie yourselves from Barack Obama.

Untie yourselves from Obama now. Fight for issues you care about.

Don’t listen to the Democratic? National Committee. Don’t listen to Nancy FISA Pelosi. Don’t listen to 46 state strategy Howard Dean. Don’t listen to Donna Screw Florida Brazille. Don’t listen to Barack Flip-Flop-Flim-Flam Obama (D-Rezko).

You’ll be disappointed otherwise.

The inspiring Obama/Dean/Brazille/Pelosi Democratic? Party slogan for 2008:

Democratic Party Slogan 2008

Remember:

Obama simply cannot be trusted. Obama cannot be trusted on any issue. Obama cannot be trusted by his friends. Obama cannot be trusted by his enemies. Obama cannot be trusted.

The Republicans know Obama cannot be trusted and unlike some ostrich Democrats they will not be shy about screaming that fact from the hilltops:

Obama was a relative moderate on the war during his first year in the Senate. He gave one speech against the war in 2002, but by the time it became clear he would face no serious challenger in his Senate race, he cooled his rhetoric, and even spoke out against timetables for withdraw. When he arrived in Washington, he waited 18 months before making his first floor speech on Iraq. Then Obama began his campaign for the presidency. Playing to the Democrartic party’s antiwar base, Obama pledged to withdraw troops regardless of the facts on the ground. He opposed the surge, and even warned that it would make the violence worse. And as progress became apparent, he stubbornly refused to recognize the gains our troops were making.

But Obama is a man of change. Just in the last week he dropped his opposition to telecom immunity, his support for handgun bans, his pledge to take public financing and renegotiate NAFTA–all core issues for Obama, or they were supposed to be. So what issue will he shift on next? After looking at the numbers from yesterday’s Quinnipiac battleground polls, we’re betting Iraq. It turns out that Americans as a whole aren’t nearly so eager for surrender as the left-wing of the Democratic party, and Obama isn’t much for staking out unpopular positions.

The left should brace itself: Obama’s going to be pro-surge, pro-troops, and pro-victory by this time next month.

Tough words. But as we know, Obama can’t be trusted.

* * *

Obama is so desperate now that he realizes the power of Hillary Clinton and Hillary Clinton supporters that he will even wear a tie which matches the color of Hillary’s clothes. But that is now. This was last week:

Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) said he bit his tongue “many times” during the fierce primary battle with Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.).

Two sources said that Obama’s comments came after Rep. Diane Watson (D-Calif.), a Clinton backer, told the Illinois senator that the Democratic Party needs time to heal.

I bit my tongue many times. Many times. I bit my tongue many times during this campaign,” Obama told his colleagues in the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) last week during a private meeting. He repeated the “I bit my tongue” phrase three times during the meeting, the sources said.

The comments suggest that Obama believes that he did not unfairly attack Clinton but held back after feeling the sting of political barbs. [snip]

The caucus convened its members with Obama last week to heal some of the deep wounds from the campaign. It was a chance for Clinton CBC backers to unify behind their Democratic standard-bearer.

Sources say Obama was direct throughout the meeting but expressed some frustration with claims that it is going to take some time for the party to mend its wounds.

Obama ran a race-baiting, gay-bashing, women-hating campaign describing Hillary’s “claws” and Hillary attacking him at certain times of the month.

Obama flip-flopped and flim-flammed on gun control and the Second Amendment while attacking Hillary before this weeks flip-flop on his previous flip-flops.

* * *

Obama can’t be trusted. Obama is not qualifed to be president. And Obama is NOT electable. We Hillary Suporters will not vote for Obama. We Hillary Supporters will not support Obama in any way.

This past Thursday, June 26, 2008 an Associated Press – Yahoo News poll was published. Big Media headlined it as good news for Obama. But the headline is Big Media deception. Hillary Clinton supporters do not support Barack -can’t be trusted- Obama:

More than one in five who had backed the New York senator now plan to support Republican John McCain in the fall, a boost for McCain if those opinions hold. [snip]

Twenty-three percent of Clinton’s backers picked Republican John McCain over Obama. Of the rest, 16 percent were undecided, 5 percent were for independent candidate Ralph Nader and 3 percent said someone else.

The poll suggests the Clinton supporters are wary that he has enough experience to be president. Just 25 percent describe him as experienced, and that drops to 5 percent among those former Clinton backers who are not supporting Obama.

The poll responses also show Obama has more work to do to quell fears among voters like Kirstie Hartle of Rome, N.Y., a registered Democrat who has never supported a Republican presidential candidate. With Clinton out of the race, Hartle said, “I’m Republican all the way now.”

Jut Jaw

National Journal‘s Charles Cook punctures the Obama landslide myth and attributes it to Obama’s lack of experience (not race as Big Media loves to iimply):

Given the closeness of the last two presidential elections and the considerable polling data pointing to yet another tight contest, this November’s election seems likely to be a squeaker.

Yes, a Los Angeles Times/Bloomberg poll shows Barack Obama ahead of John McCain by 12 points, and a Newsweek poll has Obama up by 15 points. But two polls aren’t a trend. A more recent three-night tracking poll, completed on June 24 by Gallup, has the race dead even at 45 percent each. A separate USA Today/Gallup poll has Obama up by just 6 points. And polls by Fox News; ABC News/Washington Post; Cook Political Report/RT Strategies; and Reuters/Zogby, all taken about the same time, have Obama ahead by 4 to 6 points. [snip]

A more likely scenario is that McCain or Obama wins narrowly: A hard-fought campaign is waged and nobody implodes; the popular and electoral votes might even split, as they did in 2000. [snip]

The questions about Obama’s experience are not unlike the ones about Reagan in 1980. In presidential trial heats, Obama is not polling as well as a generic Democrat. That may be partially because McCain is better liked or more respected than his Republican Party. But part of it may be reservations about whether Obama is ready for the nation’s highest office.

It isn’t that voters are sure that Obama is not ready. It’s just that they are not sure that he is ready.

Democrats who care about the issues, Democrats who care about winning – untie yourselves from unqualified, inexperienced, not trustworthy Barack Obama.

Untie yourselves from Obama.

Unite for Hillary.

We stand United for the right kind of change – Hillary.

  1. They must be delusional to think that we are just going to get over it…. the flipping off, the brushing his shoulders off, …. c’mon OB you really think we are just going to get over it?

    BTW, anyone curious about where Michelle is during all of this? She must be fuming somewhere…I would love to see her face as she watched the “unity” today.

    Nobama ever…. Country before Party!!!

  2. the whole primary season was a farce. She won darn it. More people want her to be President than they want him. It feels like we are in the twilight zone or something like it.
    American does need to elect a black president, but why this crook. I am hoping that Fitzgerald comes thru before Aug.

  3. 1) All that the 25 yr olds offered Hillary for her fights for Roe v Wade was, “Eff the OLD b*tch, we like this cute hip guy.”
    It is time to turn that issue over to these young hip chicks.
    2) A vote for McCain is not spite; it’s cleaning house.
    3) Obama policies vs Clinton policies: Obama only has one–his own opportunistic advancement. Lies are not policy.

  4. Freaking awesome post, Admin. You are at the top of your game, and at just the right time for our movement.

    Bravo!

    Confloyd: I wasn’t trying to give you a hard time about going to TM’s site, sorry if it came off that way.

    I just feel there is nothing there for me now, except disappointment. Maybe some good oppo reasearch potential, though. There is that.

    🙂

  5. Fitzgerald does need to drill this guy, ASAP.

    Nail him to the wall just like Libby.

    Anyone paying attention knows Obama is dirty. He IS Mr. Quid Pro Quo. That is his game 100% and there are innumerable examples of it.

    Let’s hope either Fitzgerald and/or Sinclair gets rid of this joke before he has to be dealt with in August or November.

  6. That crowd at AP is among the most anti Hillary in the media. Beth Fouhy who was implanted with her campaign, was reportedly slipping secrets to the Obama campaign and wrote that Hillary will concede Tuesday night to suppress voter turn-out in Montana and South Dakota is merely one example. Apart from their corruption and bias, AP articles frequently mention Hillarys age (60) but never anyone elses. The have the moral scruples of Josef Goebbels and I guarantee if you told them that they would laugh because they are too dumb to understand that there is no future in being a journalist if no one believes you. By the same token who in their right mind would bother to read Fouhy after knowing the truth about her. A complete tool she is, worse than Judith Miller,

  7. My only worry is that so many people will not continue to fight the fight and they’ll just say “well, there’s nothing else we can do”. Many of my dem friends feel deflated and don’t know what to do right now. Hillary asking them to support Obama confuses many of them who don’t follow or know the “real” Obama.

    On other note, my house deal fell totally through. At the 11th hour (yesterday evening late) the lender calls the buyers and tells them that the appraisal they ordered (by their own company) is NOW not good enough and that they want a second appraisal. My house is all packed up .. we were to close on 7/2 or 7/11 and now I don’t know what is going to happen.

    My FHA loan is assumable but it’s going to take them 45 days to get it done and I don’t know if they want to go that route or not. I’m so pissed and so bummed .. we’ve spent $ in the other place for appraisals, etc and this shit hurts.

    My hubby is so depressed cause he is ready to move on and I am depressed cause I have my whole house tore down and now am gonna have to mostly put it all back together again.

    those who believe in prayer .. please pray for us, this is a trying, trying time.

  8. Dot48, Sorry to hear what happened with your closing. I would pray deep from my heart for your family’s well being.

  9. dot48

    all is not lost. things like this always happen in the final hours, but the bottom line is, everyone wants their money. don’t give up just yet!

  10. New candle group for dot48 …bottom of page “search for others” “dot48”

    NoQuarter — refreshing point of view from young student

  11. Dot — I’m really sorry for what you are going through. I agree with alcina, hang in there! 🙂

    wbboei: Wow, I can’t believe that Beth Fouhy person. Totally unprofessional and simply pathetic.

    The AP is a joke, and as Limbaugh would say, the last great media monopoly since they supply so many news outlets.

    Rush mentioned an article the other day that was a typical AP hatchet job for Obama. It basically was a supposed look at the history of the country for the last seven decades and how the nation is in so much tumult right now. And, of course, the kicker was that when the nation had other periods of difficulty everything was turned around when the presidency changed parties.

    It was two pages of high-minded, sourced drivel to deliver two unwritten words:

    “Vote Obama”

    I don’t trust the AP at all. They are gutless and often anonymous. They are like a larger version of MSNBC.

    Lovely Saturday morning here. Dot, we’re all rooting for you.

  12. HOUND’S CREDO
    By Governor Edward G. Rendell

    Click here to join Hound

    We have formed HOUND (Hillary-Obama-United-Not-Divided) in response to the creation of PUMA (party unity, my ass — or its cleaned up moniker, People United Means Action).

    PUMA advocated that Hillary Clinton supporters do not vote for Barack Obama just for the sake of party unity. Even though we in HOUND are loyal Democrats, we agree that no one should cast a vote for President because of a desire to achieve party unity. We believe Sen. Clinton supporters should vote for Sen. Obama because, as Hillary herself said so forcefully and poignantly in her great speech a few Saturdays ago, the best way to achieve the changes she has fought so hard to bring to America, and on which she based her campaign, is to support Sen. Obama, whose policies are almost identical to hers.

    The Clinton-Obama plans on health care, the economy, energy, education and on ending the war in Iraq represent the core values that made us all Democrats – values and positions that are light years apart from the conservative policies enunciated by Sen. McCain (e.g., voting against S-CHIP, voting against raising CAF standards, voting against equal pay for women, voting for increased tax credits for big oil and against extending the credit for the production of renewable energy, expanding an increase in the Bush tax cuts, promoting a war without end in Iraq, etc.) If you care about these things, and we believe PUMA members do, then you must support Sen. Obama.

    No one worked harder than I did for Hillary and I believe no one could admire her and what she represents more that I do. But we must get over our disappointment and, as Hillary said, not waste time looking back and thinking about what might have been. Our country’s challenges must be addressed immediately, not four years from now. Our beloved country simply cannot afford four more years of Republican do-nothing-for-people government. PUMA members risk just that – it could be a Ralph Nader 2000 redux. Don’t let that happen. Close your eyes and think about Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton standing together united at a ceremony for the bill signing of legislation that guarantees every American affordable, effective healthcare.

    One last point – HOUND is not anti-PUMA. We agree with many of your grievances. For example, we, too, believe that the Democratic Party’s nominating process is unfair and undemocratic. We must change the policy where some votes are more important than others and some areas receive more delegates than their number of voters would justify – it violates the spirit of “one person, one vote.” We must eliminate caucuses that are inherently undemocratic and disenfranchise seniors (no absentee voting for those who can’t go to the polls), shift workers and our military. Forcing people to declare their preference in public also violates another cherished principle that undermines our democracy.

    So, we are asking all PUMA members to curb your disappointment, mute your anger and frustration and join HOUND to help change America. While the PUMA may be more swift and athletic, the HOUND is smarter and more perceptive.

    Nice try, Ed, but HOUND sounds an awful lot like Yellow Dog Democrats and that’s exactly what we are not. To be fair, you make a lot of good points. The caucuses *are* un-democratic. And I will admit that you were loyal to Hillary to the very end. Even now, we understand the nature of your loyalty. Hillary’s and your identities are inextricably wed to the Democratic party until death do you part. There is a lot to admire in that and the allusion to you not being “high class” is just part of the song and not to be taken seriously. No one has shown more class than Hillary and the stalwarts who stood by her.

  14. Hasn’t Ed Rendell heard “hound dog”? They said Barack Obama was high-classed but that was just a lie, he ain’t never caught a rabbit and he ain’t no friend of mine.

  15. If you believe that the Obama movement seeks totalitarian control over this country, then you probably know they speak in code words, because it people knew where the train was headed they would never get on board. The word “unity” is code the suppression of dissenting opinion.

    If you believe that Obama is just a cool young hip guy with lofty ambitions and is the one we have been waiting for then you really need to wise up and read the Dean Plan. Now that is a totalitarian model if I ever saw one. And it just happens to be the blueprint for his campaign.

    It continues to amaze me that Big Media has not figured it out. By then I remember they are lap dogs not watch dogs.

  16. Admin: Thank you for embedding the video. I didn’t know, how to do that. Always, great to watch Elvis.

    Hmm… Rendell coming up with another acronym for party unity. Are they concerned about PUMA?

    But, HOUND does not compare with the strong, stealth, and steady PUMA.

  17. Birdgal, someone should tell Ed Rendell (basically a good guy) “that dog won’t hunt” – as they say in Texas.

  18. The most interesting poll results I saw this week showed Hillarista support for McCain as second choice holding steady since April:
    iirc it was 24% in April, 23% now.

    So how many votes does that come out to? 23% of 18million…. And how many votes have decided the last several presidential races?

  19. Democratic candidate Barack Obama paid wounded veterans a visit at Walter Reed Army Medical Center on Saturday.

    Obama, who was in Washington to address the Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials, went quietly to Walter Reed shortly after 9 a.m., unannounced, and without speaking to reporters who followed him.

    Obama has been a vocal critic of the Bush Administration for its treatment of wounded veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, suggesting opponent John McCain would continue the poor treatment if elected.

    The Bush Administration came under fire in 2007 when it was discovered that veterans at Walter Reed were being treated in unsanitary conditions with substandard, neglectful care.

    Obama emphasized the importance of helping our nations’ veterans at a rally with former rival Hillary Rodham Clinton on Friday.

    “It is time to rebuild our military and take care of our veterans,” Obama told a roaring crowd.
    tothecenter.com/news.php?readmore=5806
    *****************************************************
    So now wounded war vets are treated like public relation by TEAM OBAMA.

  20. Rendell of Hussein Obama Useless No Democrat,
    One last point – HOUND is not anti-PUMA. We agree with many of your grievances. For example, we, too, believe that the Democratic Party’s nominating process is unfair and undemocratic. We must change the policy where some votes are more important than others and some areas receive more delegates than their number of voters would justify – it violates the spirit of “one person, one vote.” We must eliminate caucuses that are inherently undemocratic and disenfranchise seniors (no absentee voting for those who can’t go to the polls), shift workers and our military.

    And who is going to DO this reform if the Brazile faction gets their candidate elected President? That is letting the foxes repair the henhouse. First we need to get rid of that faction — by McGoverning their candidate.

  21. Great work on the hound dog thing!!!!

    Hillary sent an email on this “unity shit” and I felt I should unsubscribe from her mailing list.
    I will leave it for nnow but if she continually sends me something, I will just have to say – No more emails from even you, Hillary!

    Since I am maxed out for the primary, I cannot really help her anyway at the moment; She need to know when enough is enough to stop bugging me on this “unity shit”.

    With all due respect to Hillary, she can either have me on her list and stop sending me this shit or forget me as a subscriber.

    Even she needs to get it! any ideas how I can tell her to listen to this??

  22. why HOund?
    why obama and not “barack”
    why hillary and not clinton?

    bh….
    oh..
    co..

    DO NOT HOUND ME>>>>

  23. Rendell says:
    “While the PUMA may be more swift and athletic, the HOUND is smarter and more perceptive.”
    —————-
    Governor, no hound is sharper than a cat Only reason cats are not used for hunting is because they are independent creatures with minds of their own and unbreakable spirits. PUMA!

  24. Another Elvis “hound dog” clip from when he was humiliated on the Steve Allen show. Elvis was forced to sing “hound dog” to an actual hound dog. Poor Elvis.

    The poor pooch does not seem happy either. As much as we like Ed Rendell, we won’t sing with no “hounds”.

  25. With all respect to Rendell, there is a do nothing “democratic” government all ready in place today in Washington. Reid/Pelosi!

  26. We could spin comedy out of “hound” all day long! What a dumb name. Looks like all the creative talent left the party!!

  27. Agreed lil ole grape. The jokes riffing on “hound” can go on all day long. It’s almost an intentionally dumb name. Picture Montgomery Burns of the Simpsons with his trademark threat “Release the Hounds.” It is too easy.

  28. Admin, do you think it IS an intentionally dumb name? Is it actually a lot more clever than we saw? Is it giving us recognition, a chance to look better by comparison …it does acknowledge the validity of our argument – a code message? …woo, that gets wildly convoluted

  29. There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.

    John Adams

    This is my biggest problem with Obama…his circumventing of our liberties. Team Obama has NO problem shutting off dissent. Actingly using propaganda and race baiting on everyone that disagree with him.

    For the Democrats to LAY DOWN on basic rights in an election campaign tells me everything about how WEAK our LEADERSHIP is.

  30. The leaders who work most effectively, it seems to me, never say “I.” And that’s not because they have trained themselves not to say “I.” They don’t think “I.” They think “we”; they think “team.” They understand their job to be to make the team function. They accept responsibility and don’t sidestep it, but “we” gets the credit. This is what creates trust, what enables you to get the task done.

    Peter Drucker

    I vowed after GWB to become more active in the process and not vote on another WEAK LEADER but one fit for the toughest job in the world and what did the DEMOCRATIC LEADERS do…chose another insecure WEAK UJQUALIFIED Candidate with delusion of DICTATOR. HELL NObama

  31. To the Democratic Party, Ed Rendell and H.O.U.N.D.

    ~ It takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it. ~

    The DEMOCRATS BROKE IT and NOW THEY HAVE TO LIVE WITH IT.

  32. lil ole grape: I was wondering the same thing, about the choice of HOUND. Seems ridiculous, doesn’t it? So many ways, to make fun of it. Rendell is a good guy, but his choice of HOUND, is huh? There is no comparison, between a PUMA and a HOUND. Strange sense of humor, if humor was behind it.

  33. Saw in the comments on No Quarter that Bill Clinton’s “friends” say he’s still furious over Waffles’ win and they’re “shocked” he hasn’t moved on.

    It’s obvious to anyone with two brain cells that the Waffles campaign’s race-baiting against the Clintons, with the help of a slobbering press corps, crossed a line for many people, Bill being foremost among them. He’s not going to forget that overnight. Geez.

  34. Obama is a phony, a typical politician that will say or do anything to win and he had the nerve to say that about Hillary. I am disgusted with the Democratic Party and the sexism everyone played to put Obama up on a pedistal and cover up any negativity about him. What happened to Rev. Wright, did they mug him until after the election not to bring anything else out about Obama. Hillary is by far the best Democratic Candidate but since the DNC and Media have thrown Hillary under the bus and shoved Obama in our faces and will be voting for McCain.

  35. Dot48

    Sorry about the house. Lit a candle for you also

    Bill is not the only one furious. I am too

  36. Charles Krauthammer, Who I normally can’t stand, has a good column on how the MSM overlooks Waffles’ flip-flops. It’s linked on No Quarter.

  37. HI everybody from the “Burgh” Scott Township Pa

    I was reading on Senator Arlen Specter website, you can
    ask for a meeting with him, in Pittsbugh Pa.

    Was wondering if it would be worth it to request a meeting
    to dicuss some important issues about one of the nominees?

  38. Hello, I’m new.. I’ve been reading here the last few weeks and I am so glad I found this site and that it’s continuing the HC cause! I not only support her, I just can’t stand BHO, and really feel the primary process was as rigged as any I’ve seen. It’s 2000 all over again, only this time in our own party!

    I had to chime in today admin as this is such a great post!
    “Not since Michael Jackson kissed Lisa-Marie Presley has there been a more tortured embrace.”

    So true!! And ROTFL at HOUND – I thought it was an Onion satire at first!!

    I’m really disappointed in the unity PR photo ops that Hillary is doing for Obama, esp after her supporters publicly booed her at Gore’s “endorsement”, and disgusted still by the continuing smears of Hillary. Did anyone else see Dick Morris say yesterday that Hillary’s “appeal was *overty racist*. Just amazing.

  39. Ok, the article which mentions myself and my YouTube videos from the New York Times is out on their site:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/29/us/politics/29opposition.html?pagewanted=print

    I spoke with Jim Rutenberg several times about the piece, and he is a good guy. As you might expect, the couching of my videos is that the claims contained therein have been ‘widely debunked,’ etc.

    Jim and I discussed this using the example of the word “Madrassa” in the Barack and Terrorists video. I told him that, technically speaking, my usage of the word madrassa is correct. And it is. A madrassa is a school, any kind of school. Now, is that what most people associate the word ‘madrassa’ with, your average school? No, they associate it with radical, fundamentalist Islamic schools.

    But what is in my video is accurate.

    When I said this to Jim he just laughed. He understood what I meant and realized this is part of the game that is played, politically.

    As you guys all know, we are up against a parser, a flip-flopper, a line-straddler and an out-and-out liar in Barack Obama.

    As I have said 1,000 times before, if my opponent goes to the mud then to the mud we will go. I have no qualms with getting my hands dirty or playing semantic games if that is what my opponent does. You have to fight fire with fire.

    I’m not a liar, I won’t lie like Obama does. But I will use nuance against him as he has tried to do against us and Hillary (along with the outright insanity like calling people ‘racists’ and other Stalinistic tactics).

    Just wanted to pass that along to you guys. The mention of me is mostly designed to cast a bad light my videos and make me look like someone the McCain camp doesn’t want to talk to, but that is ok. I can handle that, personally. I don’t have a problem with what was written (even though Jim did try, he told me, to write my response to the ‘widely debunked’ statement but ran out of space) and I think Rutenberg is a good guy even if the Times has their own agenda, which they do.

    The bottom line for me is people will read the piece and be curious what the videos are like and they will watch them. If you watch them you come away feeling unsatisfied with the Obamas and not feeling as good as you did before the viewings as regards voting for Obama.

    And that is the only thing we all care about here.

    If my rep takes a hit but the net effect is to weaken Obama, fantastic. I’ll take that every day of the week.

    PUMA!

    🙂

  40. dot,

    i know what you’re going through. I had to sell my house last year when i became ill and at the last minute, the deal fell through, a nightmare for me coz i couldn’t keep up with mortgage payments coz i couldn’t work and couldn’t keep up with mortgage payments. It was just at the beginning of the sub-prime meltdown. The problem was one of the refinancings I’d done was with a bank, now out of business, that had never recorded the satisfaction of the loan when it was assumed by another bank. It was a nightmare. I was very lucky I managed to contact the now defunct financier just before the buyer’s loan was expiring.
    My point is, it DID work out so hang in there. You know how these MF’s love to make us peons jump through hoops. grrrrrrr.
    How much ya wanna bet Obamarrhoid doesn’t have to go through
    this? 👿
    On another note, I can’t believe Rendell turned on HRC and I agree there’s no unity possible with Cruella, Deaniac, Pooplosi and Obamarrhoid calling the shots.

  41. Congrats Paul on the NYT article.

    The reporter did mention your videos had been viewed over 50,000 times.

    Keep up the good work! 😀

  42. Paula,

    “Saw in the comments on No Quarter that Bill Clinton’s “friends” say he’s still furious over Waffles’ win and they’re “shocked” he hasn’t moved on.”

    Which thread?

  43. thank you all Big Pink! I have had to leave the house totally today ..the friend who bought our horses came to pick them up today and I totally did not know how hard I would take it. I’ve cried all day, had to go to mil’s to chill out. I had my one mare since 15 months .. she’s now 12, I raised her colt who is turning 2 and my stud horse who I’ve had for 7 years. Show horses who need to be in the ring and I know they are going to a place to be put back to work. All world champions and the colt will be great ..

    It’s like loosing 3 kids. I’m heartbroke but I did keep my gelding so that at least I’d have something for pasture and then they’ll get him when I do get my house sold.

    Agent called this am and the people have other irons in the fire right now and maybe all is not lost.

  44. Hey i was driving through my neighborhood this house had a sign enough is enough. Is there some group putting these signs out. Anybody know whats going on? I will stop the next time and ask what is the sign about

  45. Anyone know the address for PUMA

    Obama Supporters Take His Middle Name as Their Own
    By JODI KANTOR

    Emily Nordling has never met a Muslim, at least not to her knowledge. But this spring, Ms. Nordling, a 19-year-old student from Fort Thomas, Ky., gave herself a new middle name on Facebook.com, mimicking her boyfriend and shocking her father.

    “Emily Hussein Nordling,” her entry now reads.

    With her decision, she joined a growing band of supporters of Senator Barack Obama, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, who are expressing solidarity with him by informally adopting his middle name.

    The result is a group of unlikely-sounding Husseins: Jewish and Catholic, Hispanic and Asian and Italian-American, from Jaime Hussein Alvarez of Washington, D.C., to Kelly Hussein Crowley of Norman, Okla., to Sarah Beth Hussein Frumkin of Chicago.

    Jeff Strabone of Brooklyn now signs credit card receipts with his newly assumed middle name, while Dan O’Maley of Washington, D.C., jiggered his e-mail account so his name would appear as “D. Hussein O’Maley.” Alex Enderle made the switch online along with several other Obama volunteers from Columbus, Ohio, and now friends greet him that way in person, too.

    Mr. Obama is a Christian, not a Muslim. Hussein is a family name inherited from a Kenyan father he barely knew, who was born a Muslim and died an atheist. But the name has become a political liability. Some critics on cable television talk shows dwell on it, while others, on blogs or in e-mail messages, use it to falsely assert that Mr. Obama is a Muslim or, more fantastically, a terrorist.

    “I am sick of Republicans pronouncing Barack Obama’s name like it was some sort of cuss word,” Mr. Strabone wrote in a manifesto titled “We Are All Hussein” that he posted on his own blog and on dailykos.com.

    So like the residents of Billings, Mont., who reacted to a series of anti-Semitic incidents in 1993 with a townwide display of menorahs in their front windows, these supporters are brandishing the name themselves.

    “My name is such a vanilla, white-girl American name,” said Ashley Holmes of Indianapolis, who changed her name online “to show how little meaning ‘Hussein’ really has.”

    The movement is hardly a mass one, and it has taken place mostly online, the digital equivalent of wearing a button with a clever, attention-getting message. A search revealed hundreds of participants across the country, along with a YouTube video and bumper stickers promoting the idea. Legally changing names is too much hassle, participants say, so they use “Hussein” on Facebook and in blog posts and comments on sites like nytimes.com, dailykos.com and mybarackobama.com, the campaign’s networking site.

    New Husseins began to crop up online as far back as last fall. But more joined up in February after a conservative radio host, Bill Cunningham, used Mr. Obama’s middle name three times and disparaged him while introducing Senator John McCain, the presumptive Republican nominee, at a campaign rally. (Mr. McCain repudiated Mr. Cunningham’s comments).

    The practice has been proliferating ever since. In interviews, several Obama supporters said they dreamed up the idea on their own, with no input from the campaign and little knowledge that others shared their thought.

    Some said they were inspired by movies, including “Spartacus,” the 1960 epic about a Roman slave whose peers protect him by calling out “I am Spartacus!” to Roman soldiers, and “In and Out,” a 1997 comedy about a gay high school teacher whose students protest his firing by proclaiming that they are all gay as well.

    “It’s one of those things that just takes off, because everybody got it right away,” said Stephanie Miller, a left-leaning comedian who blurted out the idea one day during a broadcast of her syndicated radio talk show and repeated it on CNN.

    Ms. Miller and her fellow new Husseins are embracing the traditionally Muslim name even as the Obama campaign shies away from Muslim associations. Campaign workers ushered two women in head scarves out of a camera’s range at a rally this month in Detroit. (The campaign has apologized.) Aides canceled a December appearance on behalf of Mr. Obama by Representative Keith Ellison, a Minnesota Democrat and the first Muslim congressman.

    Mr. Obama may be more enthusiastic, judging from his response at a Chicago fund-raiser two weeks ago. When he saw that Richard Fizdale, a longtime contributor, wore “Hussein” on his name tag, Mr. Obama broke into a huge grin, Mr. Fizdale said.

    “The theory was, we’re all Hussein,” Mr. Obama said to the crowd later, explaining Mr. Fizdale’s gesture.

    Some Obama supporters say they were moved to action because of what their own friends, neighbors and relatives were saying about their candidate. Mark Elrod, a political science professor at Harding University in Searcy, Ark., is organizing students and friends to declare their Husseinhood on Facebook on Aug. 4, Mr. Obama’s birthday.

    Ms. Nordling changed her name after volunteering for Mr. Obama before the Kentucky primary.

    “People would not listen to what you were saying on the phone or on their doorstep because they thought he was Muslim,” she said.

    Ms. Nordling’s uncle liked the idea so much that he joined the same Facebook group that she had. But when her father saw her new online moniker, he was incredulous.

    “He actually thought I was going to convert to Islam,” Ms. Nordling said.

    I’ve been thinking about the race card, BC, the undems, kerry, kennedy, deaniac, and i’m beginning to wonder if the strategy didn’t include using BC’s greatest strength against him, his work and legacy in the AA community. What I mean is, by attacking the thing dearest to BC . . . like it was intentional not only by obammerroid but by the whole party…
    soory. I’m rambling and not doing a good job focusing. 😳

    Whatever we can do to help stop Obama, we’re doing. When he loses there will be plenty of time to soothe our egos if they need it.

    That’s great what you’re doing, tell as many people as you can not to vote for Obama.

    the key now is to have it altogether
    i find it very hard to believe that someone moderately informed could look at it all at one time and find him competent to lead our nation

  60. Henry:

    trashing of BC and his legacy.

    arrogance

    entitlement

    Chicago pol

    advisors that are pro-palestine,

    privatization of social security,

    “health plan” that is a gift to insurance companies

    no core values

    available to the highest bidder

    supported by the likes of Soros and other moneyed interests

    global poverty act, which is almost a trillion dollars in aid, to mostly Africa. Our country cannot afford this.

    higher payroll taxes

    no major accomplishments as a Senator.

    poor grasp of policy issues
    and the list goes on and on

  61. kostner: The use of “Hussein” by BO supporters, is rather ironic, since he does not use the middle initial.

  62. and wasn’t there something along the lines that i have answered three questions and thats enough

  63. Looks like the folks over at the puma site basil9 referred me to are having a great time registering as hounds with names like former democrat and address like no obama blvd.

  64. Tension In Unity: Clinton Donors Give Obama Cold Shoulder

    Clinton and Obama were upbeat at a meeting with top Clinton donors last night. “I know my supporters have extremely strong feelings, and I know Barack’s do as well,” Clinton said. “But we are a family, and we have an opportunity now to really demonstrate clearly we do know what’s at stake, and we will do whatever it takes to win back this White House.”

    But the people they were there to win over were less enthused, according to ABC News:

    One major Clinton donor described it this way: “This felt like when your mom forces you to go visit your Aunt Ida and she has to pinch your cheeks and you’re sitting there in an uncomfortable suit and you can’t wait to leave.”
    Another Clinton-leaning person who was in the room said after the meeting wrapped up that there is still “a lot of anger” toward Obama among Clinton’s wealthiest fans.

  65. SOMEONE WROTE THIS ON HUFFPOST

    ““BC and HC have more power in their little pinkies than any of the leadership of this party.

    You must be very young or very naive to think that a former president or former nominee for that matter owes the current nominee ANYTHING. Most rivals take months to endorse, HRC did it in days. Former presidents do as they please.

    Go read some history books or at least try wikipedia.““`

    I think its very effective answer to any obamabot.

    Cold War breaks out between Bill Clinton and Oprah over Obama

    New York, June 29 (ANI): Oprah Winfreys strong support for US presidential candidate Barak Obama seems to have incited a cold war between her and former US President Bill Clinton.

    If sources are to be believed, Winfrey and Clinton didn’t seem on good terms at Nelson Mandela’s 90th birthday celebrations in London.

    “There was a very cold reception between them,” the New York Post quoted a source as saying.

    When Winfrey went over to Mandela’s table, where Clinton was seated, “Oprah and Bill, who used to be very close, barely acknowledged one another,” the source added.

    However, sources from Clinton and Winfrey camps claimed that the two spoke to each other at a private reception before the dinner.

    McCain: On Some Issues ‘Obama’s Word Cannot Be Trusted’
    Email
    Share

    June 28, 2008 9:15 PM

    ABC News’s Bret Hovell reports: At a fundraiser tonight in Louisville, Ky., Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said that the word of his opponent for the White House, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., “cannot be trusted.”

    “You know, this election is about trust, and trusting people’s word” McCain told a crowd of donors to his campaign. “And unfortunately, apparently, on several items, Sen. Obama’s word cannot be trusted.”

    McCain’s remark came at the conclusion of a number of examples of what McCain said were Obama’s changes in position. McCain cited a proposal that he and Obama appear together at town hall meetings -– which Obama originally seemed to be in favor of, but has not agreed to yet -– and Obama’s reversal on whether or not to take federal financing for his campaign as signs that Obama’s word could not be trusted.

    “So there are stark differences between Senator Obama and myself on a broad variety of issues,” McCain said.

    McCain has frequently mentioned his desire for the campaign with Obama to be “respectful,” but has been ramping up more personal attacks on Obama in recent weeks.

    The fundraising event in Louisville raised $2 million for McCain’s campaign, according to the chairwoman of his Kentucky finance committee, who announced the number when she was introducing McCain.

  71. bird
    yes the list is endless and i repeat it all needs to be consolidated in some way and posted as it seems that he is able to deflect all criticisms as they come along but if one looks at the totality its pretty hard to deny.
    anywho gonna hit the hay myself. have a good night.

  72. Henry et all:

    My list for propping up McCain includes things/issue progessives are worried about. I give them valid reasons for them not to be worried about where he stands….and this way I downplay attacking Obama because while I want to attack him all the time, I am beinng realistic that people are worried about issues annd that will matter:

    For example:

    Yesterday, a lady called me saying McCain voted against equal pay for Women; I told her while this is important for me as well (being a woman), I look it as thing in Congress that we need to address; I also say that too many laws confuses other existing laws which serves our purpose better NOW.

    for example, all states have their version of non discrimination in employment regrdless of gender, race or sexual orientation; equal pay for women is included in this!!!!! We better laywers fighting our cases using these rules and we need more education forums for women to understand their rights!

  73. I’m glad that Bill Clinton is giving Oprah the cold shoulder. She deserves it!! Besides, it’s so much harder when someone attacks your kids or spouse than it is when they attack you.

    Furthermore, I still blame Oprah for sitting back in silence while Hillary was attacked in the media. I can appreciate the fact that she favored another candidate, but that’s not an excuse for ANYONE who watched the unfairness that was being levied against Hillary, and stood back and did NOTHING. To me, that shows her whole character in a nutshell.

  74. Girl PUHLEEZ !! You know you’re broke ass is eating mayonaisse sandwiches in the kitchen of your double wide! 😉

  75. Here’s an article with a very short comment string.
    h t t p : / / http://www.nydailynews.com/forums/post!reply.jspa?messageID=347357

    I just posted:

    Hillary does NOT want to be Obama’s VP. She has a good career in the Senate and after Obama loses in 2008 she will be free to run for Pres again in 2012.

    She has repeatedly said that she does not want VP and would only take it as a favor if the party asked her to. She recently repeated this in the NY Mag cover interview. In an interview in her home earlier in the campaign with Katie Couric, Hillary emphasized that she was happy being the Senator from NY.

    Four million of HIllary’s supporters are already planning to vote for McCain. Many of us PUMAs would work even harder against any ticket that made her VP to Obama! We do not want to see her propping up Obama and ironing his shirt!

  82. Kruglik remembers this episode as an example of why, in ten years of training organizers, Obama was the best student he ever had. He was a natural, the undisputed master of agitation, who could engage a room full of recruiting targets in a rapid-fire Socratic dialogue, nudging them to admit that they were not living up to their own standards. As with the panhandler, he could be aggressive and confrontational. With probing, sometimes personal questions, he would pinpoint the source of pain in their lives, tearing down their egos just enough before dangling a carrot of hope that they could make things better.

  84. Norma, it just sounds like another article pretending to show Obama in a bad light and then turns everything around to actually be very pro-obama.

  85. norma – I think this is the funniest part of Soros’ open society grants:

    Transparency and Integrity

    The Transparency and Integrity Fund was created to safeguard and strengthen two values at the heart of any democratic system: transparency and integrity. It unites OSI’s past support for advocacy on judiciary and media independence, election systems reform, and the politicization of government science policy. It also includes new support for restoring integrity in key executive agencies, revitalizing congressional oversight and addressing the impact of the growing privatization of government functions.

    The Transparency and Integrity Fund will use a combination of grantmaking strategies and programmatic initiatives to:

    * ensure transparency and effective government oversight, via independent watchdog organizations and media;
    * protect the integrity of government institutions, including the judiciary, Congress, key executive agencies and departments, the military, and electoral systems;
    * explore the impact of privatization and efforts to delegitimize the role of government.

  86. Admin:

    Correct. Former Texas Gov. Ann Richards on more than one occasion stated,”That dog just won’t hunt,” with her Texas twang.

    What I would give for Annie right now. She wouldv’e been HRC strongest ally.

    Ordered two mini-buttons off Cafe Press – “Voted Hillary, now McCain”-type buttons. Will wear one on each side of shirt, jacket, etc.

    Also an anti-Obama yard sign. Pray for no drive-by shootings. For real, no kidding.
