The Obama/Biden Game Show

Yup. It’s Jeopardy! with Barack and Joe.

Madeleine Albright agrees it’s Jeopardy! with Barack and Joe.

Jeopardy! with Barack Obama: :

Joe Biden warned that America’s enemies would test Barack Obama with an international crisis within six months if he’s elected president – a shocking comment John McCain eagerly pounced on yesterday to claim Obama isn’t ready to be commander-in-chief. [snip]

“And he’s going to need help . . . to stand with him. Because it’s not going to be apparent initially; it’s not going to be apparent that we’re right.” [snip]

“The next president won’t have time to get used to the office. We face many challenges here at home and many enemies abroad in this dangerous world,” McCain said. “We don’t want a president who invites ‘testing’ from the world at a time when our economy is in crisis and Americans are already fighting two wars.”

McCain said it was even “more troubling” that Biden suggested supporters stick by Obama if the actions he takes are wrong or unpopular.

Senator Obama won’t have the right response, and we know that because we’ve seen the wrong response from him over and over during this campaign,” he said.

McCain ally Rudy Giuliani also piled on.

“It has to mean that Joe Biden continues to harbor serious doubts about whether Barack Obama is prepared to be commander in chief,” Giuliani said.

Hillary was right when she warned Americans that Obama is NOT ready.

The Columbus Dispatch is warning Ohio voters not to play Jeopardy! with Obama. “McCain/Palin to block.”

For president of the United States, The Dispatch endorses Republican Sen. John McCain, whose experience, service and sacrifice for his country make him more qualified to lead the nation.

McCain’s Democratic opponent, Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, is a rousing motivational speaker, but his experience and achievements — eight years in the Illinois Legislature and less than four in the U.S. Senate — do not stand comparison with McCain’s.

A resume containing so little evidence of leadership and accomplishment leaves in question Obama’s ability to handle the most responsible and difficult job in the world, especially at a time when the nation faces a combination of problems so large and complex that they would challenge even the most seasoned leader.

Nor does it seem likely that a man who has traveled in the left lane of American politics for his entire adult life really is the bipartisan centrist that he claims to be. And with Democrats already in control of the U.S. House and Senate — and the possibility that they might gain a filibuster-proof majority in the next Senate — there would be little to check the inevitable excesses of one-party rule if a Democrat wins the White House.[snip]

At a time when the nation faces serious problems, including international economic turmoil, immigration, health care, war in Afghanistan, nation-building in Iraq and foreign-policy challenges from the Middle East, Russia, China, Iran, North Korea and Venezuela, the president should have an extensive resume and long experience in grappling with tough decisions. Few new presidents have faced an assignment as tough as the one facing the winner of the November election.

From 5 1/2 years as a POW in North Vietnam, where he endured torture, through 25 years in the U.S. House and Senate, McCain has demonstrated the grit, energy and determination that the present challenges demand.

The choice is between a candidate who has been tested to a degree experienced by few and a candidate who is untested. In Obama, Americans are presented with a question mark.

Americans won’t play Jeopardy! with Barack Obama. It’s a losing game.

  1. Hi ! I have not posted here in long time. Thought I would say Hi! to every one and be the first person to post. Admin, You are doing a great job!

  2. Thank you for this article, Admin.
    “A resume containing so little evidence of leadership and accomplishment leaves in question Obama’s ability to handle the most responsible and difficult job in the world.” The Dispatch really said it all. As you also have.

    Though I would not like to see Hillary’s career marginalized if the Fraud loses, some things are more important in life. Some people actually believe so strongly in saving this Country from it’s self, they put their very lives in harms way: soldiers, like McCain… all he had to do was leave Hanoi Hilton when given the opportunity, but he chose to stay till ALL the POW’s were released and for that, he was tortured for 4 more years. That’s what I want in my leader. We have a choice.

  4. Admin:
    “not to play Jeopardy! with Obama. “McCain/Palin to block.”
    Wouldn’t that be the tic-tac-toe show, “Hollywood Squares?”

  5. I put a post at the end of the last thread and don’t know how to copy and paste, so if anyone can just go back and read it and let me know what you think about the commercial I mentioned in it. Thanks.

  6. gonzotx ,

    Just to let you know that I agree 100% of your assessment of Hillary. I am VERY disappointed with her also. She is generally quoted her that she tried to warn the people that Obama isn’t ready to be POTUS, but yet she is now stumping for him with gusto! I see that she hasn’t touched on Sarah Palin—-YET! I hope not. But I will let you do must of the talking since no one is attacking you 😉

    NoBama in November!!!

  7. Jeopardy!
    “I’ll take geo-political mind games for $400, Alex.” It’s the DAILY DOUBLE! The answer: this weak, unprepared president was taunted with simultaneous deadly attacks on US installations and neighboring states by Iran, Russia, Pakistan and Korea during his first 100 days in office.

  8. “I’ll take geo-political mind games for $400, Alex” It’s the DAILY DOUBLE!
    The answer is: This weak first-term president was taunted by deadly attacks on U.S. Installations and neighboring states during his first 100 days in office.
    😉
    NObama in NOvember!

  9. I too am very dissapointed in Hillary. I don’t see how you can run against someone and then go and stump for him knowing he will do much harm if elected. THAT is not looking out for the people of this country! It just isn’t.

    If she is doing this to stay in with the party, well, the party isn’t worth it anymore. I don’t know if I can ever call myself a Democrat again. I’m so thoroughly disgusted with all of them.

  10. Let’s play Jeopardy!
    “I’ll take geo-political mind games for $400, Alex” It’s the DAILY DOUBLE!
    The answer is: This weak first-term president was taunted by deadly attacks on U.S. Installations and neighboring states during his first 100 days in office.

  11. bluegirl, I have not seen the commerical.

    Great job yet again, Admin.

    BMW60 is in PA. BMW60 from Pumapac and I were just discussing Hillary on the telepphone and our disappointment in her shilling for nObama. And of recent, she is doing it with great gusto, and was just in my state of FL. BMW60 is very enthusiastic in her campaigning for John McCain. She has been to one of his rallies in PA, and I have been to Palin’s here in FL.
    By the way, BMW60,congratulations on your pending marriage from all of us here a His44, if you are lurking.

  12. I’ll take geo-political mind games for $400, Alex…. It’s the DAILY DOUBLE!
    The answer is: This weak first-term president was taunted by deadly attacks on U.S. Installations and neighboring states during his first 100 days in office.

    Other categories, anyone?

    I am puzzled by Bidens comments. Since when does a Messiah need help? If he does then his supporters can provide it. We have no intention of getting in their way. We will be content to sit back and watch the spectacle. We will take all steps necessary and proper to protect ourselves from the disasterous consequence of his stolen presidency. Since when does a Messiah need our help? The mere thought of it is absurd!

    Protect freedom. Prevent disaster. Defeat Obama.

  14. Having trouble posting – sorry if virtually the same thing posts twice. Post the last one, please, Admin, if you have a choice. Now I really have to go. See you later!

  15. “I’ll take geo-politics for $400, Alex.”

    Thanks, I know it is hard for people to think of Hillary in any other way but as our leader. She was mine. I worked for her as many here, with everything I have, $ and time, precious time… I believed her about the Fraud and I still do, even more so. The more I read about him and search for answers, the more terrifying it becomes, and I have never felt this way before, I have always gone lock step with the chosen Nominee because they represented the Dem party, my party, but not this time. My eyes have been opened and I was blind, I am only hoping, it is not too late. I give Hillary No Quarter because I do feel my Country’s very existence is threatened.

  18. Bidens’ gaffes are a gift that keeps giving.

    People are guessing what the heck is this international crises that’s going to test the inexperienced Obama if he ever becomes President and that he’ll ultimately make an unpopular decision? – is it Iran attacking Israel and he will not come to Israel’s defense? is it turning a blind eye as Chavez continues to forge a relationship with Russia.

    Good job, Joe. Keep ’em coming because this is exactly the kind of stuff people need to be thinking about.

    Good opinion article in NY Post: Joe Biden’s Fears http://www.nypost.com/seven/10212008/postopinion/editorials/joe_bidens_fears_134618.htm

  19. Apparently Obama’s sister is going to be interviewed about their family on tomorrow’s “Insider.” I think she will be shilling for him…so what else is new. 😉

  20. JanH – the same sister whose birth certificate was used to forge BO’s…hmmm, shilling for him, ya think!! 😉

  21. nice endorsements from feminists for Palin: gretawire.foxnews.com/2008/10/21/feminists-endorse-palin-mccainpalin/

    Excerpt about Palin in NV:

    The women were all sat behind Palin on the stage and she then said that
    the Democratic ticket “presumptuous” thinking that they have won the
    women’s vote. She brought back her glass ceiling line and hit BHO for
    not considering HRC and compared to the problems of the average working
    woman: “When it came time for choosing someone how Barack Obama just
    couldn’t bring himself to pick the woman who got 18 million votes in his
    primary and that seems to be too familiar a story isn’t it? How it is
    for so many American women that the qualifications are there, but for
    some reason the promotion never comes. There is always some long
    explanation for why they got passed over or some unseen barrier, some
    excuse and that’s just one of the things I so admire about John McCain
    he is not someone who makes excuses.”

    She then asked why there has only been two women on presidential tickets
    in American history: “Why did it take 24 years, an entire generation
    from the time Geraldine Ferraro made her pioneering bid until the next
    time that a woman was asked to join a national ticket. In the long
    history of our country 74 people have held the position of President or
    Vice-President and why have the major parties given America only two
    chances to even consider a woman for either office?”

    She hit BHO for not paying women as much as men his Senate office: “Out
    on the stump he talks a good game about equal pay for equal work, but
    according to the Senate pay roll records women on his own staff get just
    83 cents for every dollar that the men get. That’s 9,000 dollars less
    every year that he pays the guys. 17:06 Does he think that the women
    aren’t working as hard? Does he think that they are 17 percent less
    productive? And Barack Obama cant say that this is just the way that its
    always been done around the Capitol, because I know one senator who
    actually does pay equal wages for equal work, Sen. John McCain.”

    Hit BHO on his tax plan, but gave it a female peg: “”17:09:19 The
    working women of this country, those who work inside the home and
    outside of the home, they’re overlooked by politicians in Washington and
    Barack Obama hasn’t given us a single reason to believe that he would be
    any better. A company’s balance sheet tallies up just the same whether
    it’s a man who owns the business or a women (sic). And women want the
    same opportunities as men. And they’re entitled to the same rewards.”

    —————————-

    That line bothers me too. Why won’t it be apparent that they’re right? How can he know this if he does not know what it is about? or Does he?

  24. I can just see it now:

    1/When did you know that your brother could walk on water?

    2/When did you learn that your brother talks out of both sides of his mouth?

    3/When did you realize that his wife is a b_ _ _ _?

    Since I cannot bear to watch her right now perhaps you can answer some questions:

    1. is she vouching for bambis character–or merely party policies?

    2. is she attacking McCains character–or merely the policies of bush?

    3. is she attacking Palin personally?

    4. how is the content of her message any different than what other dems are saying?

    5. what is bill doing and saying?

    6. is she attacking joe the plummer?

    7. is she calling people racist like bambi and so many others are?

    8. or is she trying to walk a line which is to do what is right for the American People and what it takes to survive?

  26. Alcina,

    Your cut and paste worked just fine. I have it in NZ, City of Londen, Belfast and Apia already. You are very good at clean links.

  27. Don’t forget FRONTLINE’S “Heat” tonight. PBS with the great Martin Smith, known for nailing liars and blowhards.

  28. I just got a call from Zogby, or that is what the girl said. It showed up as O on caller id and said private caller on the phone. I was asked about my party, my age, my educational level, if I was to vote, who I would vote for, my income level, my religious level, did I have land and/or cell phones and which was I using for the survey, was I a NASCAR person, did I consider myself a blue or white collar worker and I said white collar but I come from a blue collar family, when did I last visit DC, what would I want to see in DC and given choices of WH, Pentagon, Capitol building, [gave an answer of other for the WWII veterans memorial wall], asked if I had visited the WH and would I like to visit the WH and if so what would I like to see – Oval Office, private residence, Lincoln bedroom, etc., I answered private residence.

    She asked if I would l like to give my email so I could be contacted with future surveys, and I said NO.

    ‘F’ FOR BARACK’S SCHOOL FIX
    The New York Post reports:
    Chicago’s former schools chief has flunked the education foundation headed by Barack Obama and founded by 1960s terrorist Bill Ayers – saying it failed to monitor projects and funded school “reform” groups that campaigned against boosting academic standards.

    “There was a total lack of accountability. If you went back and asked, you’d be hard-pressed to find out how the money was spent,” said Paul Vallas, the city’s school superintendent when Obama chaired the Chicago Annenberg Foundation from 1995 to 1999.
    Imagine that.

    I saw her RECENTLY on TV saying, in my opinion, very strongly, that if her supporters did not support obama, then we didn’t know her or what she has stood for and she was very disappointed. She looked like she was sincere and with that I would say, your right Hillary, I guess i didn’t know you as i thought.

    I don’t care that she is not cursing out JM, she gives validation to MILLIONS to vote for the Fraud, and we may very well be stuck with him and the destruction that follows.

  36. http://www.weeklystandard.com/weblogs/TWSFP/2008/10/nbc_protecting_obama_from_bide.asp

    “This campaign highlighted Biden’s remarks throughout the day yesterday. We held a conference call with Mayor Giuliani who asked what Joe Biden meant. We released a statement highlighting Biden’s remarks and asking what kind of crisis his unconditional meetings with the leaders of rogue states might provoke. Our surrogates and spokesmen also noted the comments in radio and TV appearances. Yet on NBC Nightly News last night, when Andrea Mitchell reported on Biden’s remarks, she failed to play the relevant portion–the portion that this campaign and a variety of news outlets had found controversial, or revealing as the case may be. Instead, Ms. Mitchell played a tape of Joe Biden talking about how Barack Obama has ‘steel in his spine.’

    “This morning, on MSNBC, the network again aired the tape of Biden, and again they aired the segment in which Joe Biden heaps praise on his running mate. But Joe Scarborough noted that the network had played the wrong clip, and that what Joe Biden said directly reflects the central criticism this campaign has made of Barack Obama: that his inexperience, his poor judgment, and his foreign policy proposals will, in Joe Biden’s words, ‘guarantee’ a crisis.

    “So how is it that NBC repeatedly failed to play those remarks?”

  37. I feel I have to say I am just so frustrated. The only place to read of the real BO is on blogs on the internet. I think all of the court cases will be in vain as they will be dragged out until after the election and become moot. McCain wants to remain honorable and refuses to bring up anything controversial as BO and the media attack him if he does. The media says ACORN is not a big deal – they are good to register goldfish and cats and other underrepresented groups. Ayers is citizen of the year in Chicago. Wright is an active member of the south side. I feel Hillary has deserted me too.

    I will vote as I always have. I really don’t think I am a Democrat anymore – at least I don’t feel good about the party in my gut. I want ID presented to vote after my caucus experience. (I thought those people were coming out the back door and going in again – they never did close the doors and people showed up late. The organizers were calling on their cells and new van loads were showing up) I want to vote for a Patriot that believes all this stuff is wrong. I want to wake up from this bad dream of an election.

    I’m hoping people will wake up by 2012.

  38. I saw her RECENTLY on TV saying, in my opinion, very strongly, that if her supporters did not support obama, then we didn’t know her or what she has stood for and she was very disappointed. She looked like she was sincere and with that I would say, your right Hillary, I guess i didn’t know you as i thought.

    I don’t care that she is not cursing out JM, she gives validation to MILLIONS to vote for the Fraud, and we may very well be stuck with him and the destruction that follows.
    ——————————————-
    If you put her comments in perspective I think she was saying three things:

    1. the country is in serious trouble

    2. the principles of the democratic party are more important than any single candidacy.

    3. if the democatic party wins she will have input. Just as she is influencing the policies of both candidates now.

    4, she accepts the fact that she was not chosen. She believes it would serve no useful purpose to relitigage the caucus fraud issues.

    5. notwithstanding the foregoing, she is willing to support the fraud for the long term good.

    6. we on the other hand are not.

    As for the possibility that her efforts will be the critical factor in a bambi victory, I would ask you to consider the far greater possiblitiy that the real causes were an unconscionable media and the unwillingness of the McCain campaign to commence attacks on bambi until after the election for fear that hillary would win. If you have any wrath to spare it would be best serves by directing it at the proper targets.

    I received two phone calls tonight. One was from a woman who is smart like Hillary is. She told me I was getting too emotional about this, that the ultimate issue is the survival of our country, and it is vitally important for Hillary to remain politically viable for that reason. She told me to stop taking it so personally. She is anti-Obama.

    The other was from a Hillary supporter turned bot. As a concession to the shortness of life I will spare you the gorey details of that. If the bot lived in my town I would be coming to you for an alibi to the crime of justifiable homicide.

    Turndown, are we at Chosen Reservoir yet?

  39. Nice to see that the malignant dwarf is doing what she does best–lie to the American people about what Biden said. Between her and the financial bubblemeister she is married to, a grave disservice has been done to the country.

    I have been admoished to not use the word evil and to subtitute the word unconscionable when describing the media, so I will behave and hope that both of them burn in hell unconscionably.

  40. Though I would not like to see Hillary’s career marginalized if the Fraud loses, some things are more important in life. Some people actually believe so strongly in saving this Country from it’s self, they put their very lives in harms way: soldiers, like McCain… all he had to do was leave Hanoi Hilton when given the opportunity, but he chose to stay till ALL the POW’s were released and for that, he was tortured for 4 more years. That’s what I want in my leader. We have a choice.

    Yeah, and the same man campaigned for GWB in 2000 and 2004 and supported most of his inane policies.

  41. did anyone else notice this? up on drudge …….” socialist” is old code word for black…

    =========

    My response to such statements from Hillary is not to waste time trying to figure them out, or to figure out just what she really wants or wanted or how she was really different from what we saw, etc etc. My response is to spend time on something else. (I don’t watch tv or videos, I just read what friends quote here.)

    /pause while I updated my ironmyvote.com site to “now supporting sarah palin.”/

    If HIllary runs again, I’ll vote for her, of course; no one else is near as well qualified; also I agree with her on most issues. She could be the next FDR, one of our greatest presidents (as Wilentz and others said).

    I cannot now find something you wrote a day or so ago about ‘narrative’. Bettelman said of classic fairytales, the emotional equation was the character’s “greatest fear relieved by their greatest hope.” The maiden doesn’t just get rescued from the dragon, but rescued by a prince who marries her and makes her happy ever after. You wrote something that reminded me of that — my own feeling about Hillary as First Woman President. She doesn’t just survive all the persecution and mysogny of the past 35 years — she survives it to BECOME f.w.p.

    Put the other way, it’s good narrative that our f.w.p. should be someone who has fought through mysognistic attacks: the greatest honor comes after the hardest fight. I loved the design made by Hillary spanning the generations: beginning when only a man could be a Governor or President, doing her part without the honor; surviving the impeachment attacks — then finally coming out into the time when she could have her own career under her own name. The pig swallowing the python.

    Since that didn’t work (or hasn’t yet) — imo Sarah sees it too and has supplied the next step OF THE NARRATIVE.

    Acceptance speech:
    I can’t begin this great effort without honoring the achievements of Geraldine Ferraro in 1984 and of course Senator Hillary Clinton, who showed such determination and grace in her presidential campaign.
    It was rightly noted in Denver this week that Hillary left 18 million cracks in the highest, hardest glass ceiling in America but it turns out the women of America aren’t finished yet and we can shatter that glass ceiling once and for all.

    So Sarah (helped by HIllary) pokes it some more, hopefully shattering it — and Hillary gets in in 2012.
    One-two punch. Two women presidents fer the price of one. There’s narrative for you.

  43. I’m amazed CNN finally admits Palin is bringing huge amounts of voters to McCain

    “It may well be that there is … a group of people out there now who find it politically incorrect to be for Sarah Palin in public, but they’re going to vote for her in the privacy of the voting booth,” said David Gergen, a CNN senior political analyst.

    “Don’t underestimate the Palin voter,” said Alex Castellanos, a GOP strategist and CNN contributor. “They’re still out there, they’re still intense, a lot of those voters.”

    And her solid performance on “Saturday Night Live” suggests that regardless of what happens on Election Day, Palin could be a winner.

  44. Good Morning

    I feel that people have a right feel the way they do. So the feelings on this blog are all justified for that person. I respect that.

    I am hoping that you will still vote, and that you will continue to listen to what is going on, on this blog and others. Because here is where you will get information that you can filter and make your own decisions on. The newspaper, TV, and radio are giving you THEIR opinions. The recent Biden story so clearly demonstrates this.

  45. Hillary did not desert us.The party is still intact and it is our duty to clean out the individuals that initiated this power grab to insure their future cradle to grave positions in getting their share of fame and riches.Hillary remains the leader that we must support and wait for as we are going to watch the fall of Obama into his own obscure hole.Never would I feel abandoned about any decision she will make for she has given this country her all in her fight for us.You armchair cyber politicians have so much to learn about this new election process and the abuses that it can produce and we are all responsible in many ways.The great challenge for us now is to examine our efforts and clear the mistrust and doubts from our minds and fight for a clear path to the Witehouse for the peoples choice,Hillary Rodham Clinton.Obama is only an unknown bump in the road of our democracy and will fail if we decide to restore honor and dignity to our place in the world as it was before the coming of Farrakans Messiah.None of this would have happened if we had fought off the MSM,the RNC,Acorn and the infusion of fear via the Race Card that replaced Obama’s Birth Certificate

    “TO THINK WE COULD HAVE HAD HILLARY”

    This is not over until she says so.So lets do our part NOW

    By ABM90

  46. I think it is time for McCain to make the pledge that he would not run for a second term. I believe it would make him more atttractive to the electorate. What do you think??

  47. Shorttermer, I get email surveys from Zogby. At least I did but I didn’t do the last 2 so I don’t get them anymore.

    I dont’ remember 2000 that well but I rather doubt he campaigned for him in 2000, there was ALOT of bad blood between them, and 2000 is when McCain flirted with leaving the republican party and becoming an independent. 2004 he seriously considered VP for Kerry, I think he decided against it cause he probably is really a republican, at least in some of his core beliefs, and he still desired to run for president, which he would have never been able to do if he had done that. He did campaign for him some in 2004 after his speech at the convention, but they did not appear together. He also didn’t support a whole lot of Bushes policies, he often came up on the opposite side of Bush. He didn’t support the tax cuts at first, there was McCain/Feingold, McCain/Kennedy, the list is pretty extensive. you know honestly, I can’t think of a whole lot of Bush policies. What was he doing for the past 8 years????

  49. This is to back up what I said about McCain not voting the same as Bush all that much.
    ==

    In 2007, McCain Voted With Bush More Than Obama… By an Entire 13.45 Percent

    Obama, in Missouri recently:

    “In the debate this week, my opponent felt the need to inform me that he’s not President Bush. And in fairness, I don’t blame Senator McCain for all of President Bush’s mistakes. After all, he’s only voted with George Bush 90 percent of the time.”

    At the Democratic convention, that number kept bouncing between 90 and 95 percent, depending on the speaker. According to CQ, John McCain’s presidential support score in 2007 was 95 percent.

    (Note McCain was only in attendance for 39 percent of them, so he actually voted the president’s way 37 percent of the time.)

    From the way Obama speaks, you would think he never voted in favor the president’s position.

    But it turns out Obama’s score for 2007 was… 40. Does this make him 40 percent responsible for Bush’s mistakes? Or does Obama want to give him a pass for that 40 percent?

    (Obama was in attendance for 59 percent of those votes, so Obama actually voted with the President’s position 23.6 percent of the time. Yes, last year, the difference between the two men in terms of how they actually stood in the Senate and voted was all of 13.45 percent.)

    Yeah, and the same man campaigned for GWB in 2000 and 2004 and supported most of his inane policies.

    ———————————————————————————————–

    One could say the same thing about the dimocratic congress. They just rubber stamped everything GWB wanted to do. They have been very spineless, especially the past 2 years, when they have had the majority.

  51. wobbei, your post upthread re:
    If you put her comments in perspective I think she was saying three things:

    1. the country is in serious trouble

    2. the principles of the democratic party are more important than any single candidacy.

    3. if the democatic party wins she will have input. Just as she is influencing the policies of both candidates now.

    4, she accepts the fact that she was not chosen. She believes it would serve no useful purpose to relitigage the caucus fraud issues.

    5. notwithstanding the foregoing, she is willing to support the fraud for the long term good.

    6. we on the other hand are not.
    ___________________________________________
    If that is in fact, what she is trying to say, then why in the F does SHE not come out and say it that way???? That I could respect. But the words I hear are …come on in, the water is fine forget what I said in the primaries [just like Biden] that nObama is not ready to lead; he is inexperienced; he is wrong for deomcracy and America. And that is in total opposition that she so totally told us and reinforced every day during the primary. The main things that first opened my eyes to the fact that nObama is unqualified were Hillary’s words and actions.
    So, now she has reversed herself and says she is disappointed in MEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. Go figure. As Lucy used to say [I love Hillary] but….you’ve got some splaining to do. Start now. Start today. Don’t talk out of both sides of your mouth at once. Say what you mean and mean what you say.

    McCain is NO W BUSH!!!! There is never to be another W Bush – he is an anomaly, just like Barrack Obama.

  52. clintondem99, McCain said long ago that he would be a one term President – if I remember correctly. That is partly why so much hope that Hillary could come back in 2012 was rampant.

  53. I think now is the time for McCain to bring up that meeting Bambi had about keeping the troops in Iraq until after the inaugaration, that is if that was a true story. Does anyone know for certain it was true?

    Another thing about McCain, I’m beginning to get a bit upset with him because he’s being “honorable” in not bringing up certain things. Everything needs to be brought out for everyone to see and that is what would be good for the people of this country. Keeping quiet isn’t the thing to do when so much is at stake.

    It seems like HE doesn’t want to upset Bambi now and I’m getting sick of everyone bowing down and catering to that b*stard.

  54. Does anybody really think that either party will let Hillary win in 2012? There will be no dirty tricks by either side? I really have my doubts. 😉

  55. In 2002 in the state of Georgia, the incumbents running were a Democratic senator named Cleland and a Democratic governer named Barnes. The Saturday before the election (just three days), a poll by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution had Cleland up by 5 and Barnes up by 11. Zogby had Cleland up by 2. Three days later, Cleland lost by 7 (a 12 point swing) and Barnes lost by 5 (a 16 point swing). Democrats like to blame the infamous “Cleland morphing into Osama” ad (although that doesn’t explain the Democratic governor’s loss) and Diebold machines. Yet, six years later, Georgia is still a Republican state.

    My point is some of the Republicans’ best work is under the radar.

    I think it is time for McCain to make the pledge that he would not run for a second term. I believe it would make him more atttractive to the electorate. What do you think??
    * * * * *
    I agree. It’s a winner – it will make him a more acceptable alternative to the socialist.

  57. I find it ironic that just a few days after reading here that the polls are tightening in the daily tracking polls–Zogby, Rasmussen and Gallop–that CBS/NYT comes out with a poll showing a double-digit BO lead and NBC/WSJ comes out with a poll today showing a double-digit BO lead. The media is in a propaganda full-court press.

    The business/economic world has its Globalists. Can we now admit that the media world has Goebbelists?

  58. i dont want to see mccain make any pledge to not run a second term, wtf?

    he has as much right as anyone!!!!

    i would like to see a pledge that hillary
    will stop CAMPAIGNING, using her endorsement for obama……..

    OPEN YOUR DAMN EYES!!!!!!!!!!
    HILLARY CLINTON, ENDORSES OBAMA….
    i dont know why, but for some reason, she has made peace with him.
    okay thats her business, but please dont come on here and pretend to speak for hillary clinton. dont try and tell us what she is thinking, or her secret motive.
    thats bullshit. the facts are these, she has put her weight and good name behind that candidate. i respect that, she doesnt owe me anything. I ON THE OTHER HAND, CANT AGREE ON THE CANDIDATE SHE HAS DECIDED TO BACK.

    WHEW… PMS!!!!!!

  59. SactoDem,

    It will be that much more satisfying then when McCain cruises to victory. The media will look even more corrupt and idiotic.

  60. Obama Tweaks Tax Plan to Rebut McCain

    Facing criticism from John McCain that his tax plan constitutes “welfare,” Barack Obama recently added a work requirement to one of his proposals.

    “They started saying this was welfare,” said Obama adviser Austan Goolsbee. “So, just so they would absolutely not be able to say that, we decided that for the last two percent we’ll simply add a work requirement.”

    SNIP

    Goolsbee referred to the number of non-working Americans who would benefit from the original understanding of Obama’s plan as an insignificant “sliver” when compared to the much larger number of working Americans who would benefit from Obama’s plan.

    Although the number of non-working beneficiaries would have been just a “sliver” under the original understanding of Obama’s plan, Goolsbee said the Democratic nominee’s economic team decided to add a work requirement to it in order to block McCain from being able to characterize any aspect of his plan as “welfare.”

    “When did this change? I’m just curious,” an incredulous Holtz-Eakin asked Goolsbee.

    “About two weeks ago,” replied Goolsbee, adding that when the proposal was announced in September 2007, 98 percent of its benefits went to workers.

    The work requirement on Obama’s universal mortgage credit was never announced publicly, prompting Holtz-Eakin to suggest that it was just made up for purposes of the CFR debate.

    “I think they just made it up,” Holtz-Eakin told ABC News. “They will say anything in the moment. This is like trying to pin Jello to the wall.”
    During a Tuesday conference call with reporters, Holtz-Eakin mocked Goolsbee’s claim that Obama could have changed his plan two weeks ago in response to McCain attacks that did not start until after Obama met with Joe “The Plumber” Wurzelbacher nine days ago.

    “What we saw today was just another example of the Obama campaign being willing to say potentially anything in order to avoid the tough questions of the moment,”said Holtz-Eakin.

    SNIP

    “Our thing has never been welfare,” said Goolsbee. “It was always our intention that there was a work requirement.”

    Asked how the Obama campaign made its work requirement on the mortgage credit explicit before Tuesday, Goolsbee said, “We made it explicit among ourselves,”

  61. JanH,

    I’m particularly frustrated by the media this morning, can you tell?

    I got an e-mail yesterday with an attached article, I think the article appeared at Huffington Post. The e-mail was sent by a Hillary supporter; the article at HuffPo was written by a bot. The article talked about BO being sent by God and how the world was going to be such a wonderful place with him in control.

    This is getting way, way, way out of hand. If I recall my history correctly, wasn’t Hitler originally elected to some position–less than supreme leader–but from which he then took over? I am fearful.

    I have to sign off now, lest I be late for work.

  62. Well, I sent out my absentee ballot two days ago with straight votes for Republicans. It’s been really a long long election cycle this year for me. I started to tune into the primary sometime in April 2007; it’s time for it to be over with. I quit the Democratic Party on June 3, 2008. I am now an independent. It will be a long long time before I will ever take a second look of any Democrats again. I am still hopeful somehow McCain will pull this off this year. Regardless, I am sure this country will survive. Unfortunately, one thing is for sure, the march towards socialism (at least in the Canadian and European style) will be inevitable in my opinion; the only difference will be the speed of marching. With BHO, it will be running towards socialism, with McCain, it will be walking. Palin and Joe the Plumber are my hero at this point.

    Thank Admin and everybody for the daily updates and insights.

    ————————————————————————————————————————————————–

    Amen, sister!!!!! You hit the nail right on the head. I hope that McCain/Palin wins and Palin will fight for women and speak out for them without back peddling. She’s don’t seem afraid to challenge her party if needed and don’t let them tarnish her image. So far, she seems to stay very upbeat. That’s what we need in a woman leader. Who knows, maybe she and her husband will become the new power couple.

    By the way, I recently read an article in Glamour magazine of Geraldine Ferraro speaking about being a woman vp. In the article, she seems to admire Sarah Palin and was giving some advice and was pretty complementary. Although, she said that it doesn’t mean that she will vote for Palin, but she felt that Palin’s experience was being diminished by people. Evidently, she did something right or she wouldn’t have come as far as she did. I am just paraphrasing what she said.
    My question is why don’t these women express these thoughts on air? Seems everyone is so afraid of saying anything complimentary about Palin because it would be a slap in the face to Obama. There may be many women who disagree with her politics but at the same time admire her accomplishments and wish her luck. Just my thoughts.

  64. Police prepare for unrest
    By Alexander Bolton
    Police departments in cities across the country are beefing up their ranks for Election Day, preparing for possible civil unrest and riots after the historic presidential contest.
    Public safety officials said in interviews with The Hill that the election, which will end with either the nation’s first black president or its first female vice president, demanded a stronger police presence.

    Some worry that if Barack Obama loses and there is suspicion of foul play in the election, violence could ensue in cities with large black populations. Others based the need for enhanced patrols on past riots in urban areas (following professional sports events) and also on Internet rumors.
    Democratic strategists and advocates for black voters say they understand officers wanting to keep the peace, but caution that excessive police presence could intimidate voters.
    Sen. Obama (Ill.), the Democratic nominee for president, has seen his lead over rival Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) grow in recent weeks, prompting speculation that there could be a violent backlash if he loses unexpectedly.
    SNIP
    Political observers such as Hilary Shelton and James Carville fear that record voter turnout could overload polling places on Election Day and could raise tension levels.
    Shelton, the director of the NAACP’s Washington bureau, said inadequate voting facilities is a bigger problem in poor communities with large numbers of minorities.
    “What are local election officials doing to prepare for what people think will be record turnout at the polls?” said Shelton, who added that during the 2004 election in Ohio voters in predominantly black communities had to wait in line six to eight hours to vote.
    “On Election Day, if this continues, you may have some tempers flare; we should be prepared to deal with that but do it without intimidation,” said Shelton, who added that police have to be able to maintain order at polling stations without scaring voters, especially immigrants from “police states.”
    SNIP

    Carville said earlier this month that “it would be very, very, very dramatic out there” if Obama lost, a statement some commentators interpreted as predicting riots. In an interview Tuesday, however, Carville said he did not explicitly predict rioting.
    SNIP
    “A lot of Democrats would have a great deal of angst and anger,” said Carville who predicted that on Election Day “the voting system all around the country is going to be very stressed because there’s going to be enormous turnout.”

    SNIP
    Other commentators have made such bold predictions.
    “If [Obama] is elected, like with sports championships, people may go out and riot,” said Bob Parks, an online columnist and black Republican candidate for state representative in Massachusetts. “If Barack Obama loses there will be another large group of people who will assume the election was stolen from him….. This will be an opportunity for people who want to commit mischief.”

  65. SactoDem,

    As someone who holds her religion and God with as much respect as possible, I find that email that was sent to you to be blasphemous and disgusting. The man might be an anti-christ or demon from hell, but that’s as far as stretch as I am willing to go!

  66. My response to such statements from Hillary is not to waste time trying to figure them out, or to figure out just what she really wants or wanted or how she was really different from what we saw, etc etc. My response is to spend time on something else. (I don’t watch tv or videos, I just read what friends quote here.)
    ——————————————-
    Turndown: wise words

    Jan: you are undoutedly right. They do not want a woman president. That is not hyperbole, it is fact. And for every man who feels that way there is a partiarchial woman like Campbell Brown, Andrea Mitchell etc, who feels the same way. Ditto the far left. We are too addicted to arctypes and they trump truth.

    Our singlular focus must be on electing McCain and Palin. She is more of a fighter than any of them, and she can take a punch–whereas bambi has a glass jaw. He has never been tested and the tendency for a passive aggressive type like him is an underr-reation to crisis followed by an overreaction which could end life as we know it. That is why having Hillary there is important.

    I have the highest regard for Hillary’s ability and her commitment to this country. I will definitely vote for her if she decides to run again. I will defend her actions where they make sense. I will see her if she comes to town. And, I will contribute to her candidacy in a modest way. I think she is a great leader, a wonderful human being, and a symbol of our best aspirations.

    But I will not write another book dedicated to her, travel across the country canvassing, blog eight hours a day or stop by her office if I go to DC. In order to do that you must have a passion that I no longer feel. Her support of Obama has done that to me. I will support her but never again to that degree. Bambi is toxic.

    McCain can win and we will help him do it. But for months we have been telling them things like get a ground game, I have offered to bring in puma, go after bambi before the convention, this is a new kind of warfare, beware of bloggers, beware of the media. It does give me hope that they are doing these things now and perhaps enough people will keep an open mind.

    But the real concern is the country. People talk about 2012 like it is the day after tommorrow. Well, there are alot of tomorrows between now and then. It is hard to say where our country–let alone any of us will be four years from now. The only thing I can say with relative certainty is our collective future depends on defeating Obama.

  67. “In order to do that you must have a passion that I no longer feel. Her support of Obama has done that to me. I will support her but never again to that degree.”

    Basil I feel the same way as you do, and it breaks my heart that it has come to this.

  68. Was Biden Talking About a Draft? [Kathryn Jean Lopez]

    That’s what some Hillary supporters think Joe Biden was talking about when he warned about the coming test under a President Obama and unpopular actions in response.

    Biden said: ” . . .we’re gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it’s not gonna be apparent initially, it’s not gonna be apparent that we’re right.”

    Recall that Obama has said: “But it’s also important that a president speaks to military service as an obligation not just of some, but of many. You know, I traveled, obviously, a lot over the last 19 months. And if you go to small towns, throughout the Midwest or the Southwest or the South, every town has tons of young people who are serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. That’s not always the case in other parts of the country, in more urban centers. And I think it’s important for the president to say, this is an important obligation. If we are going into war, then all of us go, not just some.”

  70. gonzotx,

    far from it. I still think McCain will be triumphant. If I’m sad about anything it is with regards to Hillary.

  71. Read below – about why he did not pledge when the National Anthem was playing

    Senator Obama said, “As I’ve said about the flag pin, I dont want to be perceived as taking sides, Obama said. “There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression. And the anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all. It should be swapped for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song, “I’d like to Teach the World to Sing.” If that were our anthem, then I might salute it. We should consider to reinvent our National Anthem as well as to redesign our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love. It’s my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we as a Nation of warring people, should conduct ourselfs as the nations of Islam, whereas peace prevails. Perhaps a state or period of mutual concord between our governments. When I become President, I will seek a pack or agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity, and freedom from disquieting oppressive thoughts. We as a Nation have placed upon the nations of Islam unfair injustice. My wife disrespects the Flag for many personal reasons. Together she and I have attended several flag burning cermonies in the past, many years ago. She has her views and I have mine. Of COurse now, I have found myself about to become the President of the United States and I have put aside my hatred. I will use my power to bring CHANGE to this nation, and offer the people a new path of hope. My wife and I look forward to becoming our country’s First Family. Indeed, CHANGE is about to overwhem the United States of America.” Senator Obama

    From Dale Lindsborg, Washington Post

  72. I still think McCain has a great shot at winning this. If I go my own experience, I know too many Democrats voting for a Republican for the very first time in their lives. Also, every time a poll shows McCain winning or tightening, they come out with a poll that shows OB way ahead. It’s complete bullshit.

    They also keep focusing on the Republican base that’s not satisfied with McCain/Palin. Well, do you think those right wingers are going to vote for Obama? NO! Also, why don’t they focus on all the HRC supporters that aren’t switching? Isn’t it like 30%-40%? That number I’m sure far outweighs any disenchanted Republicans.

  73. Sorry been gone. Super slammed at work and home the last few weeks.

    Here’s something to pass on: http://www.findlaw.com/voting-rights-law.html

    It covers all 50 states laws on employee rights and time off to vote. This may be needed by many in swing states, so pass it on.

    And just as an update, the McCain folks have asked me to go to MO or CO to oversee elections. I had hoped to do so, but I have court the afternoon before and CLE (compulsory continuing legal education) the day after at 8AM. If anyone wants the info about (must be a licensed atty), email me or contact me thru admin.

  74. What a stupid and ignorant excuse. He has no right to be running for president if he doesn’t respect his country’s flag or national anthem. Enemy of State indeed!

  80. OkieAtty, I know obligations are set in stone, but oh how much better we would feel knowing the elections’ oversight was in your capable hands.

  81. If worst came to worst wouldn’t it be poetic justice if bambi reinstituted the draft. Think of how his ardent bot supporters would process that information. Think of what it would be like to go nose to nose and toes to toes with no bullshit DIs. Think of how they would think of him then, when they realized that his definiton of change was not quite the same as their.

    The more serious question, however, is how would he might use these inductees? Would they be sent off on foreign missions, deployed for internal security purposes or commited to some CCC type project–or all of the above?

  82. shenanigans, right, on November 4th we will know our numbers for sure meaning those Hillary supporters who now will vote for McCain/Palin in the general.
    It would be nice to know the actual numbers of Democrat registrants who switched parties after the May 31st RBC theft. I am now a registered Independent voter; would have voted for Hillary, but will NEVER go to either party in the future. Country before party. Trusted Person before party.

    Isnt that normally the case in florida–they vote democrat. If so then its not really a game changer or is it? If you tell me the Cubans have will be voting democatic that would be different. Do you see any evidence of that? I know the west side of your state and probably the center will lean Republican. Lots of midwesterners on the west side. Not as many people of course. Dade and Broward Counties are most populous I would assume.

  84. It was my understanding that the Catholics, Jews, and Latinos who are traditionally democrat will have a really very very hard time voting for nObama here in FL. If they should vote contrary to NO OBAMA, they are forgetting how the Democratic Party screwed them, and all of us, in the primary. I know that the Latinos were very very very upset with that screw placed and tightened right into their midsection. Has anything changed?

  85. JanH, I will hold EVERYONE who votes nObama personally responsible should nObama steal the election and institute a draft – that would mean that all the young people in my family would be drafted. And, nObama has never served our country in any military capacity – and never had a child to serve either. President nObama, you can not have my children or my children’s children.

  86. Is this another mind game that Obama and Biden are playing with us? Are they making us come up with the most vile threats so that when the time comes the threat that does become real, while also being vile, might be more palatable? Would an Obama tenure be one of crisis management on a daily basis from start to end?

    He is not ready to lead. Hell, he is not ready to go grocery shopping even!

  87. Wobbei, local polls have it virtually tied mirroring the national polls. Obama and his surrogates hit the old retirement homes down here and those are traditionally die hard democratic Northeastern retirees of Jewish heritage….Liberman came down vut that was some time ago…and off course, those inclined to go with Obama found some refuge in Hillary coming down here and giving the tacit approval. The younger Cubans are moving towards Obama but I feel McCain will still get the majority of the hispanic vote..

    Thanks jbstonesfan. Then the pattern is predicable, but the outcomes is not–at this point. But if the polling procedures are weighted to dems, as they are in other parts of the country, then the fact that it is a tie may be an encouraging sign.

  90. I received this flyer in the mail from the republican party. I guess they are sending it to all the democrats in Ohio.

    It says this is the Story of William Ayers. Terrorist , Radical, Friend of Obama. It goes on to say how Ayers says he don’t regret setting boms. He feels he didn’t do enough.

    This is what it says, Obama has close ties to domestic terrorist. Three decades ago William Ayers founded a domestic terror organization called the Weather Underground.

    During his reign of terror, Ayers and his organization bombed the United States Capitol, the Pentagon,a judge’s house and police sttions. His group was finally stopped at a U.S. Army dance, prematurely exploded, putting ayers on the run and his current wife on the FBI’s most wanted List.

    Then William Ayers became a friend, colleague and supporter of Barack Obama

    Ayers hosted a campaign launch gathering at his home in Chicago for Obama (The New York Times 10/4/2008)

    Obama and Ayers served on two boards together, creting the by-laws-together for on (chicago Annenberg Challenge Board of Directors Minutes (3/15/05)

    Obama and Ayers are part of a social circle in their Hyde Park neighborhood (Chicago Tribune 4/1/08)

    It is four pages long. It goes on to say between 1909 and 194 the Weather Underground claimed responsibilit for some 20 bomings in the United States.

    It has pictures with Ayers, Obama,bombings, O’s house. Very Interesting.

  91. wbboei,

    I think you had the key, about supporting honest, competent INDIVIDUALS, and let the parties fall where they may. Which now seems to be Palin (and McCain).

    Sarah is 44, likely to outlast everyone else currently on stage (except BO of course). With her as future of the GOP (I hope McC really said that!), then we’ve got a decent alternative, and if the Dems come clean later, then we’ve got a win/win situation.

  93. Well I just planted some lovely flowers in my flower beds at the end of my drive right along the road, lol.

    They are the handmade anti-bambi signs. I have one that says NObama, one that says in big letters: DEMS FOR MCCAIN and one that says PROTECT your RIGHTS vote MCCAIN.

    When I had just put up the dems for mccain one a car went by and blew the horn after it passed. Everyone who was driving by looked as we were putting up the signs.

    There is constand traffic along our road, which leads to the place where we vote. Those signs are going to get alot of exposure, if someone doesn’t tear them down.

    I know people are going to be shocked that we are supporting a Rebub, lol. Neighbors on our one side are Dems and on the other side they are Rebubs. I don’t have to worry about my neighbor tearing them down, because they would never do that, but I do have concerns about my one sister.

  94. I honestly believe McCain could win this election and that the polls aren’t showing the true numbers, but this voter fraud really has me worried. How can McCain or anyone win when the whole thing is fixed.

    I have decided to vote straight Rebublican and my husband said he thinks that’s what he’s going to do too.

    This will be a first time ever for me, but I don’t have any qualms about it at all. We have to keep bambi out, we just have to.

  98. McCain will take PA – Panic in the Obama camp as Dem Gov sees Surge in PA begs Obama to come back.

    news.aol.com/political-machine/2008/10/22/pa-governor-nervous-sees-mccain-surge/

    Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell has written two separate memos to the Obama campaign in recent days begging for Sen. Obama to come back and campaign in his state. In the memos, Rendell, a former Hillary Clinton supporter, admits to being “a little nervous” about Obama’s chances in the Keystone state. Rendell says that the McCain camp is making a strong push for Pennsylvania, with Sen. McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin spending significant time and resources there recently.

    Rendell wants Sen. Obama to return to his state and make three appearances to blunt McCain’s momentum. He recommends a visit to what Rep. Jack Murtha (D-PA) labeled “racist” Western Pennsylvania, followed by an appearance in the capital of Harrisburg and a “large rally” in Philadelphia. But Obama’s presence alone will not seal the deal, according to Rendell. So he wants the Obama campaign to bring Sen. Clinton and former president Clinton along with him, presumably to smooth things over with Pennsylvania’s small townspeople, whom Obama once derided as “bitter” gun-loving religious zealots.

    The Obama campaign has been nervous about Pennsylvania since Clinton trounced Obama by 10 points in the primary there. The selection of Joe Biden as his running mate was as much about Biden’s Scranton roots as it was about his foreign policy experience. And the campaign has good reason to worry. Obama’s own internal polling shows him with only a two-point lead in the state. It’s probably closer than that given that internal polls are notoriously skewed toward the campaign conducing them.

  99. rjk, I don’t own one, lol, but do wonder what one sounds like, lol.

    Moon, I think McCain was going to be in Harrisburg either yesterday or today. I saw something about it on TV but didn’t hear all of it.

    I just hope Obama and Hillary stay out of PA.

    I’m hoping that the signs that I made a put up today, will help make people think a little. I hope it will make them think that for us to support McCain, there really must be a very good reason. One can always hope.

    “I am very excited about the McCain-Palin ticket, simply because they support the values that mean the most to me,” Ms. King said. “It is a plus to me that Sarah Palin is a woman because I’ve been elected to office as a wife and mother. I’ve been appointed to office as a woman and at the time I was a mother and became a grandmother.”

    Ms. King said her experience taught her she could both be a good mother and still serve the public. This is something she has in common with Gov. Sarah Palin, R-Alaska, McCain’s running mate.

    IBD/TIPP Tracking Poll: Day Ten
    Posted: Wednesday, October 22, 2008

    Contrary to other polls, some of which show Obama ahead by double digits, the IBD/TIPP Poll shows a sudden tightening of Obama’s lead to 3.7 from 6.0. McCain has picked up 3 points in the West and with independents, married women and those with some college. He’s also gaining momentum in the suburbs, where he’s gone from dead even a week ago to a 20-point lead. Obama padded gains in urban areas and with lower-class households, but he slipped 4 points with parents.
    http://www.ibdeditorials.com/Polls.aspx?id=309546869309178

  102. I just got a call from the Campaign for Change and she asked for me by name [Hillary shared my info with nObama, evidently]. She asked if I was going to vote early. I asked if there were machines and paper ballots at the early voting, she said she thought so. I said that I wanted my vote protected from fraud, so I wanted a machine and paper ballot trail. She asked again if I was to do early voting, and I said I was thinking about it but wanted to protect my vote from fraud. I asked her what campaign she was with and she Obama. I told her in my loudest most redneck voice that I sure at to he!! was not going to vote for nObama. I thnk she asked me why and I said that after all the voter fraud his ACORN buddies had prepetrated that I would not vote for him, ever. She said that I had been listening to lies because nObama was not connected with ACORN. I screamed at her, that it was her that had been listening to lies because HE had given them money, lots of money, he had trained them, he had done work for them, and they had endorsed him, that he and ACORN were joined at the hips.She could not hang up quick enough and said she was sorry she had bothered me.

    Good riddance, I say. Now, if only I could make ACORN go away and take all their fraud with them. I emailed Gov Crist and as a Florida citizen asked him to do everything possible to eliminate voter registeration fraud and voting fraud, and to keep the 30,000 felons in the state from voting as it is illegal.

  103. Alveda King is a very smart woman. I applaud her.

    If Gov Rendell is susccessful in getting Obama back into PA and does as Rendell suggests to bring Hillary and Big Dawg back in……….then I have no further use for Rendell, Hillary or Bill, and that would completely shatter my broken heart all over again about the Clintons.

  104. I think you had the key, about supporting honest, competent INDIVIDUALS, and let the parties fall where they may. Which now seems to be Palin (and McCain).

    yup. that is my faith too.

    She has got that magic something–maybe its the fighting spirit that seems so lacking in our leaders today. A willingness to put country first. Maybe it is that spirit of rugged individualism as opposed to bot like conformity, and the willingness to speak out when something is wrong, regardless of which party. For those of us who think character not policy is the most important issue–she is now the one to watch.

    As for Chosen Reservoir, it wasnt the trip up there that was so bad, it was the long march back. McArthurs overconfident promise to have the boys home by Christmas did not happen–except those who came home in body bags. But in the best traditions of the corps they got through it. That is always the price of bad leadership, then as now, e.g. Bambi.

    &&&&&&&&&&&

    Obama spent signifigant sums of money advertising and campaigning in PA. By that point, he was “ahead” in the delegate count, even though we all know what funny math was involved in that. “Polls” showed Obama had caught Hillary and might take the state.

    But on 4/22, 210,000 more Hillary voters gave her a 9% win (it was orignally called 10 points).

    http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2008/primaries/results/state/#PA

    Think about it. How many of those Hillary voters don’t like, or can’t stand, Obama? The answer tends to be close to half of her supporters. This is equivalent to about 25% of Democrats overall. This jibes with the “Obama is supported by 74% of Dems” analysis going back several weeks ago. McCain will probably retain a higher percent of his own Repubs than Obama will of Dems.

    So I don’t believe these wipe out scenarios.

    Today’s NY Times front page writes of “Obama’s dominance”

    “Another reason for McCain’s focus on PA may be the shrinking electoral map, as $$$Mr. Obama’s DOMINANCE$$$ (my caps, not the Times’) leave Mr. McCain with fewer and fewer competitive states to campaign in, and the need to avoid another embarrassing concession like Michigan, which the campaign abandoned early this month”.

    Yeah, this election is a foregone conclusion. The only question is whether Obama will be the first guy to ever win all 50 states.

    The Times’ own polling (w/ CBS) also shows “blow out”. Ridiculous. Everyone else shows a close race.

    As for Michigan, might I remind my poliburo friends at the Times that Michigan is one state where Democratic voters might not be all lovey dovey with the guy to stole their votes. Floridians too.

    Don’t believe the media hype that Obama is now picking out curtains, and they are deciding on which prep schools in DC to send the little girls.

    That’s going to be Sarah’s problem. :^)

  106. Turndown: one futher thought. Leadership always comes down to character because policy positons change in response to changing conditions. As in military affairs no battleplan survives the first engagement.

  107. The YT is so far gone that they have lost the ability to discern the truth. In medical terms they are suffering from the delerium tremors.

  108. Yeah, this election is a foregone conclusion. The only question is whether Obama will be the first guy to ever win all 50 states.

    ————————————————————————————————————————————————–

    This scenerio scares the heck out of me!!! I sure hope that they have to eat crow on election day!!!!!!

  109. I think the NY Times feels they did not help fight hard enough for Dems in 2000, and in 2004, for obviously qualified candidates who easily outshone the dangerous doofus neophyte.

    But for this Dem, a democratic dangerous doofus neophyte, they’ll go the extra mile. And in these cases, where truth does not help their story line, then provide Politburo type brainwashing. Even Times’ own readers, two of them avowed Obama supporters, wrote in a couple of days ago to decry the unfair nasty story / hitjob that the Times did on Cindy McCain.

    The above was meant sarcastically, as MSM is trying to portray it. I have not bought into one bit.

    For instance, how many polls show that “Obama is leading in Indiana”? Ummm, probably most of them.

    Do I for one second believe it? No way, Jose.

  112. Just heard on Hannity’s radio show that Rendell is telling Obama that you have to get back to PA. Some how Hannity got a hold of Obama’s interal polls for PA and he is only up by 2%. Good love those rednecks!!!

  113. I intend to vote Republican all down the ticket; those who were strong for Hillary here in Florida have done an about face and are sickenly supporting nObama just as intensely as they had previously supported Hillary.

    Is it just me or did nObama look worn out during his Presidential address today on tv?

  114. LOL…maybe the truth is that the walls are finally closing in on the guy! I bet his internals are not as great as some would have us believe. If he ends up only up or down by 2% in a lot of places, he will have to send his dopplegangers in every direction…poor guy…NOT!!!

  115. rjk1957, WTF is wrong with people, why is he up by anything, this man should be laughed out of the race. This is ridiculous!
    What’s going on the grandma?? Is he still going to visit her on her death bed or what??

  116. I said a couple of months ago that PA could very well swing red and lets all pray that I am right. Obama can not win the election without PA because if he loses PA he will also lose OH and IN.

  117. That NRA ad is powerful. For those in PA, please pass it along to all those ‘racist, redneck,gun totin, bible thumping, people who have anitpathy towards those not like them’ wonderful people who are the salt of the earth. This ad alone would convince those who believe in the second amendment to vote against nObama. Spread it like wildfire.

    And phone bank for McCain/Palin.

  118. Obama’s “Legacy of Restitution” is the one and only message his supporters want to hear from him.His free lipstick line gets longer and more eager to get some of the wealth that he has promised them and they will live in the lap of luxury forever.

    Obama, duh, the “next president” will be tested. We know McCain is up to the test, but we know that you are NOT. We heard how JM pounced on the Georgia invasion. We heard your initial wishy-washy let me get up there and look presidential, but not say anything antagonistic, speech. Then within a few hours, you “clarified” your remarks, to be closer to JM’s. Bush, like you, was namby pamby at first. He got tougher, and so did you.

    McCain was the leader. You are a lightweight. That’s why Biden’s comments were telling.

You sir are no deterrent to out enemies. Therefore you statement that whoever is presidnet will be tested is false and misleading. The truth is they will be far less likey to test McCain than they will be to test you. In the real world bambi, the lion does not lay down wiht the lamb–he eats the lamb. But once you realize you are being eaten you will panic and go to the other extreme. Its character Bambi. McCain has it and you sir do not.

  127. If there’s anything we should have learned this year, it’s to watch what they do, not what they say…

    If you look at McCain’s campaign schedule, he is spending a LOT of time in PA, OH, and FL. A little bit of time in MO, NM, CO, and IA (I don’t get IA, but whatever)…

    However, he is not going to VA at all. This must mean his internal polling shows good things for him there. Which means the public polls we are seeing for VA are wrong (kinda like PA, although PA must be much closer, hence McCain’s heavy presence there). I mean think about it, if McCain is spending two days in IA (which most assume will be BO’s on the 4th), he must feel confident in a state like VA, which he needs to win, but isn’t visiting.

  129. AP presidential poll: Race tightens in final weeks
    Oct 22, 5:16 PM (ET)
    By LIZ SIDOTI

    WASHINGTON (AP) – The presidential race tightened after the final debate, with John McCain gaining among whites and people earning less than $50,000, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll that shows McCain and Barack Obama essentially running even among likely voters in the election homestretch.

    The poll, which found Obama at 44 percent and McCain at 43 percent, supports what some Republicans and Democrats privately have said in recent days: that the race narrowed after the third debate as GOP-leaning voters drifted home to their party and McCain’s “Joe the plumber” analogy struck a chord.

    NO! he said.

    what? asked why not?
    this is what he said:

    “sarah palin is a whore”

    WTF i said..

    “well not her, her daughter is…”
    there is no i will see that palin bitch in the white house!”

    well that was it, i was speechless, i just had to walk away…
    the funny thing is, this is a guy, whose wife kicked his ass out of the house, cause he spent alot of time and money in strip joints…

    ON THE TICKET…

  136. confloyd

    According to Greta last night the McCain camp is trying to decide whether they should start airing Rev Wright ads against Obama. Speaking of Wright he has been quiet for quite a while, he may just start talking in an effort to get even for being thrown under the bus.

  137. I think Palin and her team have made a serious mistake in allowing them to make so many appearances on SNL and other shows.It diminishes her serious side and casts her as a comedienne as well.That strategy is ok after a victory but she is not there yet and she becomes fodder for the Hustlers cheerleaders.Hillary has her fun side but rarely shows it for she knows that this is a serious business and she is always in control of her image.I like Sarah Palin but she is not a Hillary Rodham Clinton.Be patient all.The hustler will eventually be hung out to dry.In his speech today he looked drawn and unsure of his words.There was no teleprompter and he had to read each and almost every word with an occaisional glance upward and the look on his face was that of a person lost in uncertainty and fear.
    Picture his performance if he were to speak directly to a dictator via a telepromter or a note.Joe Biden said it all.

    His polling also must be telling him that he has a chance in IA if he is going there. I read somewhere that they were trying to find a way to win just in case he loses Colorado. So I am thinking it is IA and maybe NH that is in that strategy. Also looks like he has a real chance in PA, Bush never won PA, if he can win the same states as Bush + PA, or even if he trades PA for CO, he would win.
