Beware Of Barack

The John McCain campaign is broadcasting a good advertisment regarding Joe Biden’s Beware of Barack remarks.

Obama is trying to bury the Beware of Barack Biden warning with a glib falsehood that Biden would issue the same warning about President John McCain also vulnerable to a “test” by international opponents. What Obama does not address (which we focused on immediately after hearing Biden) is that Biden also stated that Obama would make decisions as president that would not be popular with Obama supporters. We called it the future “stab in the back” consistent with Obama’s behavior all his life.

Biden warned in his Beware of Barack speech that Obama’s decisions would not be popular nor would Obama’s decisions be viewed as wise by Obama supporters Because it’s not gonna be apparent initially, it’s not gonna be apparent that we’re right.

The full Biden Beware of Barack speech is a chilling and rather specific scenario of events that Biden, but not most Americans, are privy to.

Biden’s Beware of Barack speech is very like Biden’s assessment of Barack Obama during the primaries.

America, you have been warned: Beware of Barack.

  1. admin,
    what do you really think our chances are?

    on a positive note, here’s a repost from the other thread.

    some encouraging stats from confluence.

    the latest numbers for SUSA says the following for Florida:

    * 52% of Hispanics are voting McCain
    * 22% of African-Americans are voting McCain (WOW!)
    * 13% of Liberals are voting McCain
    * 39% of Moderates are voting McCain
    * 34% of Pro-Choice voters are voting McCain
    * 53% of Central Florida is voting McCain
    * 18% of registered Democrats are voting McCain
    * 44% of Independents are voting McCain
    * 39% of non-Religious people are voting McCain.

  2. Those are both strong ads.

    There has been a lot of speculation about exactly what biden was trying to say. I wonder if those remarks weren’t a clumsy effort to call attention to his own foreign affairs experience and were meant as a way to pacify bots by implying, “Don’t be afraid. Biden’s here to save the day.”

    Of course the effect was the opposite but Joe is so far off the charts he might have thought he was sending a positive message. LOL

  3. 1. Senate Rules and Admin Committee defines the rules for an election and then the FEC is supposed to implement them. And even though the US Constitution states natural born as one of the eligibility requirements, there are NO rules stating that someone must see a candidate’s birth certificate!
    ——————————————
    I think the court needs to speak to the issue. The last time I checked the consitution was the supreme law of the land, and it did not take an act of congress to enforce its provisions.

    There may be an issue of ripeness here. I could almost see a court saying that issue is not ripe for consideration unless and until he is elected. If he is not elected it goes away. If he is elected then it is ripe and must be decided before he takes office. In that case his failure to respond in a timely fashion to the request for admissions is material. I am just guessing.

  4. wbboei,

    I don’t wanna be an eyeore but d@mn, we’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting for someone to come to their senses, for something to break, for the repubs to live up to their reputation and whaddawe get? not a friggin thing.

    If BO steals the GE all these other annoying details will disappear along with those who promote them. I don’t know wtf happened to corsi. if he’s got something he better spill it while there’s still a chance it could have an impact, after the ge he, berg, kurtz, hanniy, limbaugh will be muzzled and targeted as roll models for the new fairness doctrine.

  5. Couple of news tidbits to pass along:

    John McCain will be on Meet the Press Sunday–that means you know who will be on there Nov. 2.
    Michelle Obama is giving the Democratic radio address on Saturday. That should be a hoot..

  6. from previous thread..

    OTOH, BM has done a good job of trashing SP. Her unfavoribility ratings went from 28% a month ago to 54% today.
    ____________

    Basil Dear….. if the Polls are Skewered so badly in favor of THAT ONE……then it stands to reason that the Favorable and UNfavorable ratings are as well

    I am positive “THAT ONES” UNFAVORABLE RATING IS MUCH HIGHER THAN WHAT THEY ARE LETTING ON

  7. birdgal

    No , he was on H&C and was talking about how McCain should bring back Wright but that he wouldn’t
    but the 527’s etc could and should and then slipped in there that

    gopchoice.org is planning too but needs $$ so he was telling americans to donate in not so many words

  8. I saw that segment. I think Morris was hinting that this is something http://www.gopchoice.org. or similar organizations should do since McCain is staying away from it.

    I don’t know why the GOP has shied away from this issue. It’s a legitimate concern (like so many things about Obama). Are they so afraid of being called racist that they don’t want to help McCain win?

  9. comment tonight in the open blog on http://www.obamacrimes.com
    any lawyers here want to comment on it????

    Another way to handle this? Writ of Mandamus to State Secretaries of State
    by Oh, Nuts! on Fri 24 Oct 2008 10:24 PM EDT | Profile | Permanent Link
    Do you all know what a Writ of Mandamus is? It is a court order demanding a public official do their job in regarding something that it is their duty to do.

    How about seeking a Writ of Mandamus in every state (or even just battleground states) requiring the Secretary of State to certify that everyone running is qualified. They can then require Obama to produce a certified Birth Certificate, or remove him from the ballot.

    Basil-I know exactly how you feel. Ultimately it is up to John McCain now, just as it was up to Hillary in the primary. Obviously they have constraints on them that we do not see. If just seems you cannot win if you play by the Marquis of Queensbury rules, your opponent does not, and the referee in this case the media is so damned corrupt. It is much easier for me to say what should happen than what will happen. McCain has the winning argument if he can get people to stop think and listen.

    There are so many variables here that no one can predict what will occur. If these soothsayers had to put their money where there mouth is they would be more careful. We do know that we will lose if we listen to Tokyo Rose and get depressed. I have tuned out big media. We just need to vote and encourage other anti Obama people to do likewise.

  11. Barack Obama on the Political Benefits of Segregation
    By Tim Graham | October 24, 2008 – 11:16

    For all of the media hype that Barack Obama is a great unifier of peoples, that was not his position on October 24, 2001, seven years ago today, when the Chicago Tribune’s David Mendell (now an Obama biographer) and Gary Washburn reported Obama was concerned at the “problem” of black people moving into the suburbs and voting there, making it harder to consolidate districts for black politicians. This leads to an odd dialogue on the political benefits of housing segregation:
    Because African-Americans are slowly moving into traditionally white neighborhoods or to the suburbs, black aldermen are finding it difficult to draw a new ward map that will preserve the current number of 20 majority black districts. Black political power has always relied on blacks being massed in segregated neighborhoods.

    It is becoming clearer to black political leaders that the remap struggle promises to be replayed in the future if the city continues to diversify at near the pace of the 1990s. The issue also arises as the Hispanic population is increasing dramatically, leading to a push for more Latino wards.

    “As long as we have hardened racial attitudes reflected in our voting patterns for minorities–to elect one of their own–they still need to have a substantial voting-age majority in neighborhoods and communities,” observed state Sen. Barack Obama (D-Chicago). “And with incremental integration, we’re finding this is harder to do.”

  12. Greta is greta……. she’s awesome!! 😀

    she’s railing on CNN for not apologizing to Sara Palin…….and hitting them very hard!!

    She’s also hitting hard on OHIO voter fraud that has just been proven, a obama campaign worker from out of state register in Ohio and got caught………..no surprise there! eh??

  13. I just moved to south dakota

    but have family friends in Port St Lucie, my mom is a snow bird there every winter

    I know obama won’t take south dakota 😀

  14. I hope that we are in the calm before the storm. It’s way too quiet I think…It’s like we are drifting into the election.

    Perhaps there will be a barrage of new ads from 527’s very soon. Also, the Obama faux state of the union speech on Wednesday will be getting attention. I just heard someone on Greta say that it’s possible that could backfire on him..

Barack Obama (D-Chicago). “And with incremental integration, we’re finding this is harder to do.”
    —————–

    Does he also believe in keeping them in their socio-economic status because that way it is easier for him and other politicians like him to get their votes? This is beyond despicable.

  16. I just want his speech to get the lowest ratings possible. Let the media watch this idiot. Let the people be released from that sort of purgatory…

  17. PM

    I totally agree!!

    so now the blacks are under the bus?? ( can’t have them moving to someplace nicer than the hood)

  18. djia — I just came from NQ — was interested in this:

    This Saturday, October 25 from 11AM – 1PM EST, Team Sarah will be calling one million women voters in battleground states and invite them to participate in a live, free tele-townhall over the phone. You will be able to ask questions and get answers from a panel of distinguished women leaders. This has never been done before! Imagine one million women voters on one phone call!

    You can’t miss out. If you would like to be included on the call (even if you aren’t in a battleground state), sign up to be a member of Team Sarah and make sure to fill in your phone number in the profile section. We will keep your phone number private and will only use it for this.

    Read the rest

    African-Americans here in Tampa are MAD at Barrack Obama. Apparantly Barrack Obama decided it wasnt necessary to advertise using African American owned media here in Florida, especially radio stations, money he refused to put in the African American community. Yet he wants their vote, and they are MAD. Don’t know if you saw those protestors a while back when he was here, but they held up signs that said “What about the Black community Barrack”. and it wasn’t one person, it was like 25 holding this sign up and interupting his speech. That is why I never believed Obama was ahead in Florida. I won’t be surprised if some stay home.

  20. lol…djia…

    whose the target for your darts? Please tell me it’s a lovely picture of the McCain’s smirking opponent… 😉

  21. Jan, djia — did you ever punch pillows? Great therapy. I’m not much into hitting but I had a really bad hate bo night not long ago and somebody suggested a huge pillow was the on — it was held up for me and I damned near knocked the person over!

    I think it will, although Karl Rove didn’t think it would hurt him, if it didn’t help him then it would be status quo. But thinking of that old man in that family restaraunt when he went to Germany who said “that SOB goes to Germany and elects himself president”, I don’t think that will go over very well. He is arrogant, he is all but coronated, and I don’t think alot of at least older people are going to like that. He kind of forgot to get elected.

  23. ok….. i am still waiting for hubby to pull on his boots and get his hat on…..i guess he needs to be studley when he sings LOL 😉
    just teasing…..he’s actually an awesome singer ( he sings it all blues,rock,country etc) no i don’t sing……one in my family with a swelled head is enough LOL!

    Lin67…….i used to have pillow fights with my sister till my dad got mad …….does that count?

    last night Joe and i went out and i found a buck hunter game 😀 I kicked Joe’s ASS!! LOL!!!

    my secret??? all those bucks were really OBAMBI

  24. lil ole grape,

    LOL…we should make a list of quick-fixes for us.

    I volunteer alcohol and/or homemade chicken soup (not together of course…lol…) 😉

  25. Jan — the alcohol therapy — tried that last night — out to dinner with friends — said it would be good to get away from politics for a bit — hah! biggest martini I ever saw in my life! followed by wine with dinner — numbed the tension but the conversation? — politics. There’s no getting away from it!

    The sweetest f***ing revenge in the world will be hearing them address her as Madam Vice President! grrrrrrrr……..

    ——-
    I don’t believe her unfavorability rating is that low. That is probably oversampled dem. she has more people showing up to her rallies than any of the other 3. She is still wildly popular, despite the way they dragged her through the mud.

  27. Here’s some breaking news already getting comment on the internet…

    Government computers from state agencies in Ohio were used to get personal information on Joe the Plumber. Access to records such as driver’s license is prohibited to only legitimate law enforcement agencies. Yet this information was accessed two days after the last presidential debate by by accounts assigned to the office of Ohio Attorney General Nancy H. Rogers, the Cuyahoga County Child Support Enforcement Agency and the Toledo Police Department. Read more at the link below…

  28. I tought this is kind of funny but kind of sad
    Had someone in tonight to look after a kid and left Hillaryis 44 on the computer. Well she read and was scared shitless about a bunch of middle aged women discussing purchasing fire arms. She is twenty and 14 weeks along. I wasn’t upset with her for reading what I had left up on the computer but I was furious as to where my little thing that I care about a lot was while she sat and obviously read several posts. The only place one can smoke in my home is the computer room and she was wellaware of that. Yet I found six butts in the ashtray. She is a crazed bambi supporter paid 40 for two hours to keep an eye on a 25 month old child and instead hits the internet.

  29. basil9
    only 39% of moderates supporting McCain??? I gotta believe something is not right there. That number is very very fish, unless of course itmeans that they do not support McC but will vote for him anyhowas his the most centrist.

  30. confloyd: tried to call you at home and work. Just checking in–nothing to report other than what I have blogged.

  31. Emjay told me about the following article by Riverdaughter, which lays out the reasons why Hillary supporters should not support bambi. I agree with most of it and will support her if she decides to runs again.
    ————————————————————-
    We’ve witnessed some of our friends going nova in our emails in a most spectacular way. It seems to be a case of rationalization that if we at The Confluence can’t get behind Barry and are simply stating some uncomfortable truths, that we must not be progressive anymore. This is not the case. We aren’t losing our religion. We’re standing our ground. We are not rewarding the bad behavior of the party that cut 18 million voters out of the decision making process and awarded the nomination to a man with no experience or qualifications but who has a knack for eliminating his opponents in underhanded and devious ways.

    He has ruined Hillary Clinton’s political career. It is time we faced up to this fact. She could run again but doing it a second time will be very difficult. A lot of people supported her and donated money to her only to see her undermined by her own party. It was just too close, too heartbreaking to want to experience that again. We don’t really understand the dynamics about why the party turned on her in the first place, at least not completely. Obama decided to run and he wasn’t too concerned whether he was ready or whether Hillary was the better candidate. He exercised his male prerogative to go for it and the rest of the party fell in line. The rest of the country may be ready for a female president but it is becoming more and more obvious that the party is not.

    This reality doesn’t make me want to give up, however. It makes me want to deliver a blow to the party in November that is so powerful that they get the message. It’s wrong to turn on your voters. It’s wrong to manipulate primary election results. It’s wrong to allow one of your party loyalists to be trashed in the media by sexism and misogyny. It’s wrong to allow racism to be used as a weapon. It’s wrong to allow your nominee to ditch the party brand name to reach out to appeal to evangelical voters. So much of what has gone on this year in the party is reactionary and corrupt that we can not let it go unchecked or we will lose the only organization we have for standing up for those Democratic principles we cherish.

    So, to those of you who are wrestling with your consciences and are looking for someone to blame for your discomfort, don’t point your fingers at us who have the courage of our convictions. Take a look at the superdelegates who abandoned us, and their own party’s values, for a man who threatens to call them racists if they don’t fall in line. A man who treats his party and his party’s voters with so little respect deserves no one’s vote.

    Riverdaughter 10/16/08

  32. Here is a exerpts from a lengthy piece by Anarchel which Emjay referred me. It explains why we feel as we do toward the press and bambi. And it puts a lie toward the racism claim he makes.
    —————————————————————
    This election season has not been marked by racism, but by misogyny of a very violent kind, and that this violence has come overwhelmingly from the Left. I don’t think this is because the Left is inherently more misogynistic than the Right, but see it as a sign that expressing hatred of and desires to inflict violence upon women is as acceptable across the political spectrum as racism was in the first half of the 20th Century
    Within the liberal blogosphere and the MSM (I do not venture into the wing nut fever swamps), there is a drumbeat for violence against Hillary.

    I have myself read comments advocating rape and murder. I have read main posts saying she was inciting violent acts against her, or saying they could “understand” the position of those who wished violent harm to befall her, her husband and her daughter. The descriptions of what Obama should do to Hillary verge on the pornographic. Not a day goes by that some prominent voice on the left or in the MSM does not demand her submission, subordination and public humiliation.

    And now a major MSM celebrity and talking head, not some anonymous commenter on some obscure blog, has openly and unapologetically advocated that Hillary Clinton be marched into a dark room and murdered.But the Democrats and the self-proclaimed progressive blogosphere have shown themselves to be more than willing parties to misogyny and violence against women. Along with Olbermann’s homicidal fury, there were the widespread comments after the Kentucky Derby that the euthanized filly was a good example for what should be done to Hillary.

    The language and imagery I mentioned when writing about Olbermann resurfaces every time there is a breath of a rumor that somehow Hillary isn’t campaigning hard enough for Obama. How she is going to pay if he loses, because… well, because she is there and women are the usual targets of violence when men feel disempowered, disrespected, disappointed that they didn’t get what was owed to them. The deep irony of the Obama campaign’s self indulgent “She wants us dead!” yowling over the RFK reference is that the parallel was between Hillary and RFK – trailing in the delegate count but persisting to the end despite threats and danger. She was the person in RFK’s shoes and the one at risk of murder, not Obama, especially given the constant agitation against her at every level of the media.

    This campaign has been defined by false claims of racism and the brutal enactment of misogyny. The assaults on women as women show us that using misogyny to intimidate and eradicate female participants (voters as well as candidates) is excusable in a way that racist assaults are not

    Neither women nor minorities have been treated all that well, and both have placed their hopes in the Democratic Party to right past wrongs and prevent more in the future. This election cycle, whether the mainstream media will acknowledge it or not, whether the A-List blogs will cop to their gleeful gang bang of women they love to hate, has been a very public repudiation of one groups’ hopes.

    Misogyny deniers try to focus on just a few figures, and explain away broad actions as being reasonable responses to these despicable, polarizing broads. No, no, it’s not that we are kicking women down; it’s that Hillary’s a cold bitch! We’d like someone else. But not Ferraro, that racist, shriveled up old hag. And Chelsea is really just letting herself get pimped out.

    What the campaign season has demonstrated is misogyny is as acceptable a weapon of social and political dominance as race demagoguery was through George Wallace’s presidential campaigns. There is no “answer” for it as long as it is a contest where the privileged have no intention of letting the dominated get a leg up, and where authoritative critical voices fall silent when wrongs are committed. Paul Krugman, I’m sorry to tell you that your willingness to push aside all the unpleasantness for the sake of winning the election, lecturing Hillary voters, us bitter knitters, to not go away mad just because we’ve been threatened with rape, murder, beatings and torture if we don’t ditch that bitch and vote for The Precious has materially harmed women. You should have been screaming every day about how Obama had better put Hillary on the ticket or else watch half the party walk off, encouraging people to be angry over being treated with contempt instead of meekly getting the scraps from the table.

  33. This is the third article on the subject of sexism against Hillary. Normally, I would synthesize them for you but in this case it is best to see each of them in its own light. The point of convergence is the stuggle of rising feminine against the old patriarchial power stucture. When you see someone as brilliant as Hillary held back by it you realize what a bad thing it really is for all of us.
    ———————————————
    Houston sees the presidential race through a mythic lens.

    “The current election is a look at archetypal structures,” said Houston, a handsome 71-year-old with a broad smile. Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) has “a shamanic personality, of course,” she said. Clinton is “the classical wise woman or priestess, if you will.” The presumptive Republican nominee, Arizona Sen. John McCain, she added, is “the warrior.”

    The ‘rising feminine’

    Houston believes Obama is on the verge of winning the nomination partly because he has promoted himself as the embodiment of a new kind of politics, and partly because Clinton has had trouble portraying her authentic self.

    “She is funny, hilarious, generous, warm, given to acts of kindness that are extraordinary,” Houston said. “She is a deep woman, not just a very bright woman. But she is part of a dying breed, an archaic sensibility.”

    The biggest change in human history over the last 5,000 years, Houston said, “is the rise of the feminine . . . slowly, but surely, to full partnership with men over the whole domain of human affairs. This is shifting everything.” This was what Houston tried to convey to Clinton in 1995 when they helped her understand why, quite apart from political strife, she was the object of so much loathing.

    “It’s the fear of the ‘rising feminine,’ ” Houston said.

  34. I can’t seem to get on NoQuarter, I don’t know whats wrong. I also tried posting here but it doesn’t appear. It could be that I forgot to hit the summit button or it could be my job will not let me comment, whatever. I wish I could get on NoQuarter!

  35. I still cant get on NOQUARTER, lets hope he broke something good tonight. I also saw where the judge dismissed the Berg lawsuit. He almost said it was without warrant and was almost frivilous. What is it, this is a conspiracy, no on will take on the “ONE”. This reminds of the movie the “Godfather”. He has the world believing in him, except for a few of us that will never drink the kool-aid!

  36. I just heard the best argument to use for any bot who is touting the “palin is only a heartbeat away from the presidency” just use well “Pelosi is only a heartbeat and an aneurysm away from the presidency” now thats scarier.

  37. Joe Biden throws Hissy fit in interview, station banned from Obama Campaign, take note MSM this is what will happen to you if Obama gets in.

    newsbusters.org/blogs/p-j-gladnick/2008/10/25/joe-biden-angered-tough-questions

    “Are you joking?”

    “I don’t know who’s writing your questions.”

    Those were two of the angry responses by Joe Biden to a couple of tough questions posed by Barbara West on Orlando’s WFTV. You can get an idea of just how upset Biden was by reading the title of of this account of the heated interview: “Obama campaign cuts off WFTV after interview with Joe Biden.” Here are the observations of what happened from the Orlando Sentinel blog of Hal Boedeker the TV Guy:

    WFTV-Channel 9’s Barbara West conducted a satellite interview with Sen. Joe Biden on Thursday. A friend says it’s some of the best entertainment he’s seen recently. What do you think?

    West wondered about Sen. Barack Obama’s comment, to Joe the Plumber, about spreading the wealth. She quoted Karl Marx and asked how Obama isn’t being a Marxist with the “spreading the wealth” comment.

    “Are you joking?” said Biden, who is Obama’s running mate. “No,” West said.

    West later asked Biden about his comments that Obama could be tested early on as president. She wondered if the Delaware senator was saying America’s days as the world’s leading power were over.

    “I don’t know who’s writing your questions,” Biden shot back.

    Biden so disliked West’s line of questioning that the Obama campaign canceled a WFTV interview with Jill Biden, the candidate’s wife.

    “This cancellation is non-negotiable, and further opportunities for your station to interview with this campaign are unlikely, at best for the duration of the remaining days until the election,” wrote Laura K. McGinnis, Central Florida communications director for the Obama campaign.

    McGinnis said the Biden cancellation was “a result of her husband’s experience yesterday during the satellite interview with Barbara West.”

  38. but but but, Obama was going to register 5 to 10 million new voters and managed less than 10%

    http://www.nypost.com/seven/10252008/postopinion/editorials/a_few_bad_apples__135225.htm

    The folks over at ACORN – Barack Obama’s favorite “community organizers” – now admit that more than 30 percent of the 1.3 million voter-registration forms they submitted this year were rejected by election officials nationwide.

    So much for claims by the left that the issue is nothing to worry about.

    Never mind all those applications by Mickey Mouse and Jive Turkey.

    ACORN says no more than “1 to 1.5 percent” involved actual fraud – which was committed, according to their friends at The New York Times, by “low-income field workers trying to please their supervisors.” They were only following orders, you see . . .

    Then again, yesterday’s Times admits that ACORN-related voting fraud seems “to have resonated” – even among some Democrats and independents.

    And with good reason.

    Just a few days earlier, People for the American Way, the left-wing advocacy group, took out a full-page ad in the Times defending ACORN.

    Charges of fraud, said the ad, are all a bunch of lies cooked up by “right-wing operatives” intent on keeping “low-income people and African-Americans from voting.”

    Maybe there were some problems with ACORN’s voter registrations, the ad says, but only “a few bad apples” were responsible.

    Too bad People for the American Way couldn’t read the same day’s Times before it placed that ad.

  39. Florida is weird, they have a registration of 10,000,000 but only roughly 7.5 million voted last time.

    In 2004, the republicans had a registration of 3,984,000 and dems had a registration of 4,400,000 but yet the results were

    Bush 3,984,000 approx
    Kerry 3,500,000

    So Kerry underperformed by almost 1 million with a Dem registration while the Republican registration seems smack on the nose. It weird.

  40. moononpluto, it sure seems like all repugs came out to vote last time in Florida. I hope that’s the case again.

  41. A little help please
    I don’t understand the need for early voting. Absentee yes but early? I confess my ignorance in this regard, if anyone here can refer me to a site which can explain the necessity Iwulod be most appreicative. Tried to google/yahoo/ask.com but all I got were new articles mostly relating to this election cycle.

  43. Good Mornin All

    Henry I would like to answer your question on early voting from my perspective.

    First I don’t trust absentee voting for two reasons:

    1. they might not count them, and 2 if something is wrong with the ballot you don’t get a chance to revote.

    I have voted on one day in several parts of the country, and it can be a nightmirror. When voting machines break, you can stand hours in line, and people leave.

    Early voting gives me approximately 2 weeks with several days a week to stand in a shorter line, I can leave and choose another day if the machine breaks, and if I have marked my ballot wrong, I can fix it.

    If they could fix the security, I would prefer to vote on my computer.

    I left the miscreant alone with a toddler and she wasn’t bright enough to dump the ashtray. In two and a half hours she smoked six cigarettes. And then she goes on about bambi and change and the fact that we as a country need to feel good about ourselves. Ten bucks an hour rouned up.

  45. NewMwxicoFan
    with al due rspect I don;t believe that voting shouldbe hassle free. We are an incredibly fortunate people and to take one day to exert a little effort is in my opinion not too much to ask.

  46. Henry

    I understand that, but it is idealistic. In addition, people get sick on that day. There was nothing in the consitiution that it has to be accomplished in one day. It is not a matter of patriotism that you sacrifice one day. To me the important thing is to have as many people as possible voting.

    That was one of the major problems with the Caucas group, people working shifts, and not being able to free up that one day, or being sick.

  47. In addition, you can mandate one day to vote, but it can take a week to figure out the vote, so why should they get more time to count the vote, then people get to vote. Sorry, I don’t see the sacredness or the patriotism of voting on one day.

  48. Can you imagine, the judical system stating that a voter has no right to challenge the eligibility of someone to run for President.

    You can force people to prove they are a citizen to take a job in this country, but making sure someone running for President is eligible is a judical game.

    I don’t understand the need for early voting. Absentee yes but early? I confess my ignorance in this regard, if anyone here can refer me to a site which can explain the necessity Iwulod be most appreicative. Tried to google/yahoo/ask.com but all I got were new articles mostly relating to this election cycle.

    what happens if you were going to be out of state or country on business on elections day?

    what if your surgery was scheduled for the day before?

    what if you lack transportation, but could arrange to get there early?

    If a voter can’t challenge, who can?
    Is there any person or entity who has the responsibility for ensuring eligibilty?
    If not, why even bother having rules? Let Governator run. Let a 13 yr old kid run. “My Dog for President: A Bone in every Pot”.

    Great points. If the having to be born in the US is not important that being 35 and living in the US for 14 years is not important either.

  52. So question to wbboei and other lawyers on the board:

    Who enforces the constitutional eligibility requirements for the presidency? The judge in Berg’s case seems to suggest that Congress needs to pass laws if it wants to give that power to voters, party leaders,…

    If he wins, watch for this to go the Supreme Court.

  53. This is just another crooked ploy to waste time. The clock is ticking and the dimtwits are trying their damnedest for it to run out prior to what they think will be the annoitment of Mortimer Obama Snerd.

    Never mind how many laws they break.

    This election will go down in infamy as the most corrupt and violent one ever…the one that broke U.S. democracy forever more!

    If Obama is an honorable man,…..
    &&&&&&&

    thanks for that moment of levity.

  56. According to the newspaper account the judge has dismissed the case on the birth certificate case filed by Phillip Berg has dismissed the matter. The political effect is neutral, because there was no finding of eligibility, and the fact that obama fought it as he did, rather than producing a valid birth certificate is further evidence that he is not an American citizen.

    Since the case received little or no attention from big media there is not legitimated reason why the dismissal should receive their attention either. But because they are the whores they may try to make a big thing of it. Therefore there are some obvious things we should say if we are asked:

    1. First, Obama failed to present a scintilla of proof that he is eligilble to be president.

    2. Second, the proof he has submitted elsewhere , i.e. his own website and fact check has been shown to be fraudulent. In effect he has been busted.

    3. Third, the judge did not reach the issue of whether Obama is eligible. There was no finding he was eligible.

    4. Fourth, the judge dismissed the case based on standing–which means that berg had no legal right to bring the case as a private citizen.

    5. Fifth, by the intemperate language cited it appeared to me that this judge harbored personal animus toward berg. I would have to read the 34 page opinion to see how sound his logic was.

    6. Sixth, I know nothing about this judge or why that might be. However, I cannot imagine he was too happy with the way the pleading were published on his website and dismissal orders.

    7. Seventh, Berg will probably appeal but it is pro forma. The appeal would be to the third circuit. Coincidentally, Ed Rendells wife used to sit on that court and she still might. If so then I expect she would recuse herself.

    (Note: Ed was loyal to Hillary until the end regardless of what he does now. I still think he is one of the good guys)

    8. Eighth, I had hoped this judge would show more courage and imagination that he did in this matter. As far as I am concerned as a private citizen he failed to enforce the Constitution.

    (Note: I realize the legal significance of the legal doctrine of standing. It prevents people who have no valid stake in a case from flooding the legal process. However, there was once a Supreme Court Justice who believed that trees had standing to sue in federal court over, so the potential reach is limitless. That is what I mean by imagination. His name was William O Douglas.)

    Berg Lawsuit Dismissed
    October 25, 2008 by texasdarlin

    As expected, Judge Surrick has reportedly dismissed the lawsuit brought by Philip J. Berg against Obama, the DNC, and the FEC. According to the Saturday morning on-line edition of The Philadelphia Daily News, Judge Surrick dismissed the case brought by Philip J. Berg:

    In a 34-page memorandum and opinion, the judge said Berg’s allegations of harm were “too vague and too attenuated” to confer standing on him or any other voters.

    Surrick ruled that Berg’s attempts to use certain laws to gain standing to pursue his claim that Obama was not a natural-born citizen were “frivolous and not worthy of discussion.”

    The judge also said the harm Berg alleged did “not constitute an injury in fact” and Berg’s arguments to the contrary “ventured into the unreasonable.”

    I have not yet received independent confirmation of the ruling. This post is based solely on the Daily News article. If true, Berg will immediately file an appeal, according to my sources.

    CNN Fake Story About “Lifelong” Republican Supporting Obama,CNN Again Fails to Check Its Facts

    I’ve already written about how ludicrously unbalanced CNN’s election coverage has been, and others have examined CNN’s blatant misrepresentation of a National Review quote during its Palin interview.

    But CNN isn’t merely biased, it is also incompetent. I just saw this story on CNN’s political ticker that celebrated a decision by a supposedly lifelong black Republican, Aaron Wheeler, to drive 600 miles to Columbus, Ohio to vote for Barack Obama:

    “My family has been Republican for three generations,” he said, but “I knew I had to change and vote Democrat in the first time almost ever.”

    Wheeler said he was one of about 16 black Republican delegates at the 2004 GOP convention, and was proud to support George W. Bush.

    This time, he said, he did not attend the Republican convention -and decided he would go one step further and vote for Democrat Barack Obama.

    This story seemed a little suspicious to me, so I decided to do CNN’s homework for them. It wasn’t too long before I found this story from The Columbus Dispatch, dated September 12, 2007, covering the decision of a local resident to run for Congress. His name? You guessed it, Rev. Aaron Wheeler:

Henry, the thing that astonishes me is how LITTLE say the American People really have over who their public leaders will be and how dilignently sociopaths like bambi and axelrod labor to diminish the voice they do have. Their goal is to silence and disenfranchise whoever disagrees with them. If the truth were told nothing–and I mean nothing would stop these people. I begin to believe the role of voting is to provide the pretense of a mandate and nothing more. We used to look at the old USSR and laugh at the way leaders like Krushev won 99% of the vote, and think how superior our sytem was. Well, the one thing they did have over us was unity and the willingness to send people to the gulag to enforce it. The far left in this country leans in the same direction and by philosophy, temperment and instabilty bambi himself leans in that direction.

  66. henry,

    Many good reasons for early voting have been given above.
    Another reason is that it is less burden on the election officials, and less chance of a foul-up having serious consequences. Why have a high-pressure situation with lots of people in line at the same time and votes needing to be tabulated all the same day? The more pressure and confusion, the more chance for fraud — or for vote suppression.

    With early voting, when a problem turns up, there is plenty of time to correct it before it affects many people, and the few who were affected have several days to return and vote after it is corrected.

    (Note no typos in this post! You can see at a glance that it’s a dull post on a non-breaking subject. 🙂

  67. turndownobama-com

    I remember one election in which every mechanical voting machine went out. The line was closed at the required time, and we stood for hours in this elementary school until it was resolved and we voted.

    Meantime the election had already been called.

    During the Primary Caucus here, out site ran out of ballots for at least 45 minutes before directions were given to make copies. Actually ballots arrived about 1 1/2 hours later.

  68. I just tried to post this at Boston Herald but couldn’t log in:

    It was Biden who raised the idea of an international crisis. He said it very clearly. Palin replied to him.

    Palin is more qualified than Obama and Biden put together! She has run a home, a business (which she and her husband created), a town, and a state. She cleaned up problems that mirror those of the nation – finance and energy – and got approval from 80% of the citizens (including 75% of the Democrats).

  69. Palin has show herself to be one tough person. They continue to pick apart her and her family. I think that makes people mad, and works in her favor.

  70. henry and new mexico,

    Another point about early voting is that it changes the dynamics of the campaigns. On same day voting, one side can put out an untrue blitz at the last minute when the other side has no time to reply.

I had secretly hoped it would be an October surprise.

  73. turndownobama-com, I really liked what Ted Neugent said about Palin. He said no one else had accurately described her, and that he would do it.
    I wish someone would find the video and post it here, it was on Neil Cavuto’s show yesterday after, and repeated this am on Cavuto’s show. The part i like most was that ‘…she took a crowbar to the…’.
    He said something I wish I could remember verbatim, she is a pragmatist that…… It was an accurate description IMHO.

    To the Editor:

    In 2000, The New York Times, in its presidential endorsement of Al Gore, said of him, “We today firmly endorse Al Gore as the man best equipped for the presidency by virtue of his knowledge of government, his experience at the top levels of federal and diplomatic decision-making.”

    In that same endorsement, in contrast, The Times wrote of George W. Bush: “But his résumé is too thin for the nation to bet on his growing into the kind of leader he claims already to be. He does have great personal charm.”

    In its 2008 general-election presidential endorsement, The Times could have aptly recycled these aforementioned quotes nearly verbatim, this time substituting John McCain’s name for Al Gore’s and Barack Obama’s for George W. Bush’s.

    One can only conclude that the only difference this time around is that the eminently more qualified but less charismatic candidate happens to be a Republican.

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. — With national and battleground-state polls giving Barack Obama a healthy lead, his campaign is redoubling efforts in Appalachia, the scene of several primary-season defeats, to see if it can finally win over the region’s white, working-class voters.

    (snip)

    Both candidates hope to win over the region’s voters to help deliver victories in swing states. A Quinnipiac University poll released on Thursday gives Sen. Obama a 52%-38% lead against Sen. McCain in Ohio, compared with a 50%-42% lead on Oct. 1

    Obama Swinging For The Fences
    By every metric, the Democrat’s presidential campaign looks as if it is headed for the upper deck.

    by Charlie Cook
    Saturday, Oct. 25, 2008

    For a political analyst, the normal posture this time of year is much like a baseball umpire’s: hunched over, peering carefully as the ball approaches the plate, watching for whether it breaks left or right, whether it’s coming in high or low. But, these days, we analysts are more like outfielders, watching in awe as a ball seems on a trajectory to not only clear the fence but very likely land in the upper deck.

    By every metric, Barack Obama’s presidential campaign appears headed for the upper deck. Polls (both national and state-by-state), organization, money, and momentum are all running strongly in Obama’s favor. At this point, one wonders whether Obama’s winning margin could be greater than Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton’s 5.6-point win over President George H.W. Bush in 1992, more than Bush’s 7.7-point win over Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis in 1988, or more than Clinton’s 8.5-point win over Sen. Bob Dole in 1996. Even higher on the landslide roster is California Gov. Ronald Reagan’s 9.7-point victory over President Carter in 1980 and Gen. Dwight Eisenhower’s 10.9-point win over Adlai Stevenson in 1952.

    Certainly, the 2008 presidential contest could reverse direction and result in victory for John McCain. But at this point, he would have to be the beneficiary of something quite dramatic for that to happen.

  85. Thank you NewMexcoFan. Please everyone send her a thank you, Florida is still reported as a swing state much to my chagrine after the DNC, you are a half vote, debacle.

  86. gonzotx: thank you for posting. This is far and away the best work I have seen on the subject. Put nuclear weapons in the hands of people like that and you have an existential threat to deal with. That was the concern that drew us into the Iraq mess, and it will not go away. Kissinger once spoke of the danger of people who are not concerned with this world but the world they are trying to bring about. This is where Obama’s muslim heritage, ties to hamas, and unwillingness to disclose his donors become valid matters of inquiry. Unforutnately, he does everything he can to cover his tracks. Someone it sure to ask are you saying he is in league with these awful people to which I say I do not know because he will not answer even the most fundamental questions, and that makes me wonder why.

  87. Both candidates hope to win over the region’s voters to help deliver victories in swing states. A Quinnipiac University poll released on Thursday gives Sen. Obama a 52%-38% lead against Sen. McCain in Ohio, compared with a 50%-42% lead on Oct. 1

    Cook relies on past history but there are unique factors in this race which his analysis does not account for and that may surprise him. The problem with conventional wisdom is it is too conventional. In this case, it is partisan driven as well. I am sorry he has chosen to be party to it. I still believe this is mccains election to lose–which acknowledges the unique factors, while also acknowledging that he could in fact lost it. But New Hampshire primary gives me hope. I do not think it would take a megapolitical event.

    Don’t you think if Obama had an honest-to-goodness legitimate American birth certificate, he would have produced it at the very beginning instead of fueling this issue? Don’t you think if Obama had nothing to hide, all of his documents from his personal ones (i.e. health), his educational ones, and his Chicago legislative ones (that have conveniently and mysteriously taken a hike)?

    The guy has no honor, no integrity, and he has after all been proven time and time again to be a pathological liar. Hence is zillions of flip/flopping and excuses/reasons for every thing he is called on.

    Obama back in Pa. next week; Dems’ final pitch for state By Dan Hirschhorn, PolitickerPA.com Reporter

    With state Democrats urging Barack Obama to make one more campaign swing though Pennsylvania before Election Day, the Democratic nominee will do just that, staging two rallies here next week.

    Obama, who continues to lead Republican John McCain by double-digits in most state polls, will hold a rally in Pittsburgh Monday and another in Chester on Tuesday. The choice of locations would seem to target Obama’s most fragile constituencies-moderate conservatives in Chester County and blue-collar Democrats in western Pennsylvania.

    Doors open for the Pittsburgh rally at Mellon Arena at 3 p.m. Monday, and for the Chester Rally at Widener University at 8 a.m. Tuesday.

  93. Wow Sarah Palin must really be a drag on the ticket

    Sarah Palin’s visit to Salem has had to be moved.

    The City of Salem says the response to the Republican Vice Presidential Candidate’s visit has been overwhelming and the rally will be moved outdoors to Salem Stadium.

  94. As Americans prepare for this week’s barrage of Halloween celebrations and parades, the Sarah Palin “look” is the hottest item for partygoers who want to make a political statement on the eve of the presidential elections.

    The previous data showing that the most popular and best selling politcal candidate costume wins the election.
    With this and Gov. Palin’s huge crowds and ratings and Obama going back to blue Pennsylvania, tells me this race is neck and neck.
    Be hilarious if its the first time, the VP actually is the one that wins the election for the ticket, i’d love to see the Obama’s face if that was the case.

    McCain was ? ed and did produce a BC

  102. Guys, Honestly – does anyone here – anyone – I mean ANYONE – really believe Obama will lose? I for one don’t. It’s over!

  103. No Quarter said they have move to a new server and “clear your cache and cookies to make sure you get an all new site.” Confloyd, you might try that, even though not doing it hasn’t affected me and should not be affecting you.

  104. Secret, if you believe all the hype, then Obama is your next president. But you can all the bogus hype from MSM.

    This place is where research is done, and where we band together to shine a light on the media cockroaches.

  105. JanH,
    Sorry, it is not meant to be negative – well, after Hillary lost – I don’t know what you mean by negative. I don’t think anyone here is a passionate Mccain supporter – but I assumed most are Hillary supporters & anti-obama people here. So, speaking about mccain losing isn’t negative. Some might call it reality check. Sorry if that upsets you. But, I am so tired of deluding myself thinking Obama will lose.

  106. gonzotx, I know McCain produced his BC at the first sign of concern. Then again, he appears to be an honorable man. We can’t say the same of Obama. None of the rules and laws and conventions apply to him. His resistance to produce his BC may be rooted in the insecurity he feels as a man of unconventional background, just like the way he calls everybody racist at the drop of a hat (this is assuming he has a legit BC but does not want to reveal it.)

  107. secret, I honestly think O can lose. The way things have happened so far, and McCain’s previous “come back kid” surprises. When he crashed last year, Big Dawg told that to a very disbelieving interviewer—and look what happened.

    We seem to want to borrow misery from the future! Go ahead and enjoy a victory now. We don’t know. so why be miserable, now.

  108. rbv44hrc,
    I love this place. I sincerely do. People here long enough knows me. I credit this site & ADMIN for the research he puts in – but its dawning on me that perhaps we are a very small subset that doesn’t reflect American electorate at large. While people are are correct in their views & opinions – America may be swamped by MSM hype and indeed elect the Pretender. I am not saying I am thrilled to have Obama as my President. If he does become the P then I would boycott him – switch off TV, won’t read articles with him as a subject like that… but the whole point here is – are we deluding ourselves of what is going on in Public at large. I am not saying we are wrong. What I am saying is – is Public being cheated & are they going to elect Obama? And don’t we know it? Do we believe the public is as sophisticated as some of you guys here to be so nuanced in their position? I don’t think so. No matter how much I hate Obama. I think the public have been sold. I would love to be wrong but I bet – I am right!

  109. Just to clarify – you all.

    I am not saying Obama is better than Mccain. Let me establish that very clearly. I would vote for Mccain. It is an anti-Obama vote. I am a passionate Clinton supporter.

    But, my point is – I don’t believe my vote will make a difference in making Obama lose. I think its my candidate who will lose. I will still vote for my candidate as I am against “The other ONE”

  110. Secret, will you bloody stop with the negativity, its not over, the results are not in, so will you just give over and let the rest of us get on with it.

  111. NewMexicoFan,

    How many times, Secret did the Polls say it was over for Hillary?

    At the end wasn’t it over?

  117. Secret, if you are so certain of Gutter Ball’s win, why don’t you go revel in that excitement at Daily Kooks.

    Does anyone here — I mean ANYONE — not think that “Secret” is a pretty fishy name to have on a pro-Hillary blog on which said poster spouts pro-Obama predictions?

  118. Secret, I just came from the Republican hdqtrs here. If you are so worried about losing, do something about it like ‘wave signs at intersections’. blog for McPalin everywhere so they can win, etc.

    The Directoress gave me a badge that says, “Hillary supporter for McCain-Palin.”I love it. I signed up for a rally to be here Monday and they will not tell us which candidate will be here. I will be working with the band = Mel Tillis will be singing – he lives here.
    For two hours today, I stood with others at our busiest intersection waving McCain-Palin signs. There was a 10 year old girl with us, and you would not believe what some of those opposed to McPalin shouted at that little girl, and some did a thumbs down, some shot her a bird….just the young girl, not us adults. A white guy and a black guy drove by with windows down and shouted to me to, “get some BALLS.” I shouted back, “I will give you one, then we will both have two.” But most we were honked at, people waved, people did thumbs up. But what heartened me most was that close to 20 police cars stopped at the red lights at that intersection, and every one of them waved. I was standing on the edge of the side walk and a police car was beside me, window was down, and the policeman said, “Go, McCain.” I thanked him and told him he was one of my heroes, he said thank you.
    If the good responses we got for two hours was any indication who will win – then we have done a good job. Also, at headquarters they were saying, “…..we each do our part, and God will do his part.” I said, God had better get busy because I am not worried about nObama WINNING this eleciton, I am worried that he will STEAL it.
    So, see Secret, God will do his part, the Republcans told me so.

  119. If you think Obamabots like yourself are the only ones that can be nasty and vile, you haven’t met many PISSED off, gay, Hillary-loving PUMAs like myself. I am a bigger bitch that Michelle Obama on a bad day, and your comments on this site have turned this into a bad day.

    Leave.

    Confirmed: MSM Holds Video Of Barack Obama Attending Jew-Bash & Toasting a Former PLO Operative… Refuse to Release the Video!

    LA Times writer Peter Wallsten wrote about Barack Obama’s close association with former Palestinian operative Rashid Khalidi back in April.
    Wallsten discussed a dinner held back in 2003 in honor of Khalidi, a critic of Israel and advocate for Palestinian rights.
    Barack Obama has denied his close association with Khalidi, too.

    According to Wallsten the evening not surprisingly turned into a classic Jew-bash:

    “During the dinner a young Palestinian American recited a poem accusing the Israeli government of terrorism in its treatment of Palestinians and sharply criticizing U.S. support of Israel. If Palestinians cannot secure their own land, she said, “then you will never see a day of peace.”

    One speaker likened “Zionist settlers on the West Bank” to Osama bin Laden, saying both had been “blinded by ideology.”

    Barack Obama also praised the former PLO operative during the event.
    And, Obama confessed that his family often shared dinner with the Khalidis:

    His many talks with the Khalidis, Obama said, had been “consistent reminders to me of my own blind spots and my own biases… It’s for that reason that I’m hoping that, for many years to come, we continue that conversation — a conversation that is necessary not just around Mona and Rashid’s dinner table,” but around “this entire world.”

    …The event was videotaped, and a copy of the tape was obtained by The Times.

    Khalidi and the Obamas were great friends in Chicago and often shared meals together.
    By the way, Khalidi was also best friends with Bill Ayers.

  122. Count the Votes: Very sickening, but we knew about Khalidi on this site. Aren’t there some pictures floating around with the Obamas and Khalidis together?

  124. Oh, and by the way, I asked if the internals were different from what the pollsters and MSM have been reporting, especially today with two digit leads for nObama, she said ohhhh, yeah.

  125. birdgal – I wish there were…if only the LAT would release the video, because BO saying “sitting around the table with Mona and Khalid” is pretty damning evidence.

    anyway, I think that the republicans underestimated the power of the media to cover up BO’s questionable associations – with such little time to go, I wonder if they can make any traction. the October surprise should’ve been in Sept.

    (excerpt)

    Well, there is another story out there that the MSM refuses to address. A huge story. One that could, and I think will, significantly affect the outcome of this race. I’m referring to the widespread phenomenon of registered Democrats openly supporting John McCain. There are numerous “Democrats for McCain” type organizations. There are numerous websites and blogs written by Democrats touting McCain’s candidacy. There are pro-McCain grassroots efforts being led by Democrats. And we all know friends or relatives who are Democrats, who voted for John Kerry in 2004, and who are no fans of President Bush – but who are going to vote for John McCain this year.

    Yet, surprise surprise, the mainstream media is not talking about these voters, not talking about the real rift that is occurring within the ranks of the Democratic Party. Needless to say, if a similar rift were occurring in the Republican Party, it would be treated as the major story that it is. (Indeed, as such stories about the political fault lines in the Republican Party have been treated in the recent past.)

    Who are these pro-McCain Democratic voters? They overwhelmingly tend to be former Hillary supporters. Perhaps the most well-known of these voters are the “PUMAs” – which stands for Party Unity My Ass. These are Hillary supporters who are adamantly opposed to Obama. Let’s not forget that during the Democratic primaries – real elections, not polls – Hillary crushed Obama among white working-class and middle-class voters in such key states as Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. If a meaningful number of these voters end up voting for McCain, as I predict they will, then Obama’s smooth road to the White House is going to run smack into a brick wall.

    Earlier this week, I attended a John McCain campaign event in New York City. There were several Democrats in attendance. Not only people who are registered Democrats, but party leaders and workers who had been actively involved in Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Indeed, the gentlemen who “keynoted” the event was a former publisher of the left-wing Village Voice magazine and a veteran of the Robert Kennedy, George McGovern, and Jimmy Carter campaigns. Hardly a right-wing conservative. He gave one of the best stump speeches I have heard why Barack Obama should not be elected president. (It comes down to not trusting Obama to keep the United States safe and strong in a dangerous world and rejecting Obama’s “government knows best” attitude when it comes to domestic issues.) Another person I met at the event was a sprightly elderly woman who manned telephones for Hillary for five months, and now is supporting McCain.

    There is nothing remotely similar to this taking place among Republicans. (No, Christopher Buckley endorsing Obama is not the same thing at all.)

    Some more anecdotal evidence of a lack of support for Obama among Democrats: I live in the Upper West Side neighborhood of New York City. You cannot find too many places in the country that are more liberal than that. Walking around my neighborhood during the 2004 presidential campaign, I felt “assaulted” on all sides by Kerry-Edwards buttons, bumper stickers, and posters. This year, there clearly is not the same level of outward support for Obama. It is remarkable (and welcome). Will most of the people in my neighborhood vote for Obama on election day? Of course. Will Obama win New York? Almost certainly. But the lack of enthusiasm for Obama among these Democrats, who I’m sure would be going gaga for Hillary, speaks volumes about Obama’s true prospects for victory this year.

    The point is simple: Don’t believe the Obama hype coming out of the mainstream media. If the media were truly objective and unbiased, they would be covering the race much differently. Instead of trying to browbeat the country into voting for Obama, they would be analyzing the issues and factors that favor and disfavor both candidates. Instead of focusing on college students and intellectuals, they would be focusing on working-class and middle-class voters, especially “Hillary Democrats.” These voters may very well determine the election. Yet this huge story is being ignored by the MSM.

  128. Secret, I recall you being here for a while. I don’t think you’re a bot.

    If people snap at dire – hopeless predictions, it’s because we’re fighting the bombardment of bullshit news.

    Maybe you recall one or two weeks out, Kerry was a dead lock solid shoe-in. Where is President Kerry nowadays???

    That’s right, in the Senate.

  129. They want us to get depressed so we say it’s over and we don’t vote. I get depressed too – but I will vote. Every vote McCain gets is one Obama won’t get. That is why I won’t write in anyone or vote for a third party candidate. Really, it is not the way I wanted it by any means – but it is now Obama VS. McCain. With those two choices – I am solidly in McCain’s corner.

  130. Signs Pointing To A McCain Victory

    By Steven M. Warshawsky

    Despite there being an entire cottage industry devoted to exposing the liberal bias of the mainstream media, Republicans and conservatives continue to allow themselves to be unduly influenced, and even demoralized, by what they read and hear in the big city newspapers and on network television.

    What are they reading and hearing? That Barack Obama will be the next President of the United States. It’s inevitable. It’s his election to lose. What proof does the media offer? Public opinion polls that supposedly show Obama “winning” the race. (But see here and here.) The thousands of devoted supporters who attend Obama’s rallies. The legions of blacks and young people who are more “inspired” than ever to vote for a candidate who understands their needs and interests. Etc. We all know the story by heart by now.

    This is the “narrative” that the mainstream media has been imposing on this year’s presidential campaign almost from the start. Remember how quickly the MSM jumped off the Hillary Clinton bandwagon and onto Obama’s? Remember how annoyed and angry they became as Hillary refused to concede the nomination? The MSM decided that electing the nation’s first black, socialist, anti-American president was politically and historically more important (and, for them, more exciting) than electing the nation’s first female, socialist, patriotic president. And they are doing everything they can to achieve this goal.

    Well, there is another story out there that the MSM refuses to address. A huge story. One that could, and I think will, significantly affect the outcome of this race. I’m referring to the widespread phenomenon of registered Democrats openly supporting John McCain. There are numerous “Democrats for McCain” type organizations.

Instead of focusing on college students and intellectuals, they would be focusing on working-class and middle-class voters, especially “Hillary Democrats.” These voters may very well determine the election. Yet this huge story is being ignored by the MSM.

    Furthermore, the media would not so consistently confuse intensity of support for breadth of support. Granted, Barack Obama’s supporters tend to be more enthusiastic about their candidate than John McCain’s supporters are about him. Leftists are always looking for their earthly messiah. But this does not mean that Obama’s supporters, come election day, will outnumber McCain’s. Whether in support of McCain or in opposition to Obama, I predict these voters will go to the polls. Contrary to the wishful thinking of Democratic pundits, they are not staying home. These voters may be unexcited, but they are not apathetic. And 51% of “unexcited” voters will defeat 49% of even the most “inspired” voters. Every time.

    Of course, we all know what the mainstream media’s “narrative” will be if (I believe, when) John McCain wins the election: The American people refused to vote for Obama because of the color of his skin (and not because of the content of his politics). The “right-wing attack machine” scared voters into voting for McCain, even against their own social and economic self-interest. Black and poor voters were intimidated by Republican thugs and prevented from voting. We know this story by heart as well.

    So be prepared. In a few more weeks, the political environment in this country is likely to become a heckuva lot nastier. For there are real signs pointing to a McCain victory this year, whether or not the mainstream media wants to acknowledge them.

  131. If the AP is correct, Barack Obama’s base problem is very serious
    October 24th, 2008

    By Kevin “Coach” Collins

    A recent AP poll screamed trouble for Barack Obama.

    It reported his base support to be just 80%. If this is accurate, and that is a very big IF, he can not win.

    Last June when former Hillary Clinton supporters were asked, 58% supported Obama. But the same survey also showed 21% voting for John McCain. A follow-up survey of the very same people showed support for McCain had grown to 28% while remaining stagnant at 58% for Obama. The undecideds seem to be moving to McCain.

    These numbers have been swept under the rug by the media, but they are still very important.

    During the Democratic primaries, exit polls showed a consistent core of 20% that would not be voting for Obama in the general election.

    Whether Rush Limbaugh’s Operation Chaos can be blamed for this distressing news for Obama can be debated, but it doesn’t completely explain away the numbers in the face of subsequent polls showing the same results.

    If Obama is getting just 80% of Democrat support he is in trouble. A base support this low can not be overcome and will not get Obama elected. Almost all polls of rank and file Democrats have shown Obama’s base support in the eighties and mid seventies.

    In 2000 Al Gore got 92% and lost. In 2004 John Kerry got 89% and lost by a clear margin.

    There would have to be a huge difference in party identification to pull Obama through with just 80% of his base. The reported split among Independents doesn’t help either.

    A September AP poll of Democratic and Independent likely voters showed that 1/3 hold negative views of Blacks. The same surveyed showed that 40% of all Americans have negative views toward Blacks. Is it that hard to believe the 80% support level?

    The base support numbers tell the story. If they are real, this will be a tough night for the Democrat’s candidate. Additional fresh information reveals that the TIPPs poll has Obama with an 86 percent base support, but the 11.6% undecided number makes that suspect.

  132. McCain Hoping He Has Friends In Pennsylvania

    by Scott Horsley

    Republican John McCain spent Tuesday campaigning in Pennsylvania — his third visit there in eight days.

    Republicans see Pennsylvania as their best chance to capture a blue state; Democrats have carried it in the last four presidential elections. Most public polls give Democrat Barack Obama a double-digit lead in the state. But McCain told supporters in suburban Bucks County on Tuesday morning that he is not down for the count.

    “All those pundits who wrote off our campaign — they forgot to let you decide. We’ve got ’em just where we want ’em,” he said.

    There may be a bit of gamesmanship in that claim, but McCain is spending both time and money in Pennsylvania. Twice last week and again on Tuesday, he went hunting for votes in the suburbs of Philadelphia by saying that his campaign believes Pennsylvania is a state he can win.

    Mike Duhaime, McCain’s political director, echoed that sentiment.

    “Certainly, it’s a state that a Republican hasn’t won in 20 years,” Duhaime said. “But we think Sen. McCain is the right candidate, with an appeal to independent voters. And certainly, the ability to get some crossover Democrats is what you need.”

    Staking Their Hopes On Moderate Democrats

    Registered Democrats outnumber Republicans in Pennsylvania by more than 1 million, and the gap is growing. But Duhaime argues that moderate Democrats will not vote for Obama, who was trounced in the primary here by New York Sen. Hillary Clinton.

    “I think folks in Pennsylvania are not looking for a tax-and-spend Democrat like that,” he said. “I think you look at somebody like Sen. McCain, who has been very fiscally conservative over the years. That’s more in line with Pennsylvania voters.”

    McCain’s promise of low taxes and limited government does resonate with a lot of older voters, like Grace Caldwell, who attended a rally in Chester County last week.

    “I like his issues on the economy. I trust him. I’m sorry, but I don’t trust Obama,” said Caldwell, a retired schoolteacher who once taught home economics.

    “When a candidate stands up there and says, ‘I’m going to raise your taxes,’ are we going to vote for him? I mean, come on,” she said.

    McCain Attacking Obama On Taxes And ‘Bittergate’

    Obama has promised not to raise taxes on those making less than $250,000. McCain hammered away at the tax message Tuesday as he traversed Pennsylvania.

    “Sen. Obama wants to raise taxes and restrict trade. You know, my friends, the last time America did that in a bad economy, it led to the Great Depression,” he said.

    McCain’s campaign is also reminding Pennsylvania voters of Obama’s comment back in April about people in small towns who cling to their guns and religion.

    Voter Vic Rosciolo says McCain has paid his dues and deserves to be president.

    “I’m against socialism, and I think Obama is a socialist. So I’m strictly for John McCain. I think he’ll do a good job if he gets in,” he said.

    Rosciolo says he is not too worried about the sluggish economy. He thinks it is mostly Wall Street fat cats who are hurting. His own business hasn’t really been affected.

    Most handicappers would call McCain a long shot in Pennsylvania, but he is hoping to close the gap as the contest enters the homestretch.

  133. It is not a long shot in PA, if O has to go back and campaign there. There has been a shift. The question is how much.

    I remind myself of that every day so I don’t get discouraged. I read an article by Susan Estrich today, I don’t usually read her cause I am just not a fan of hers, don’t know why I did today, but it was basically he’s up 5 or 6 and he will definitely win but we shouldn’t stay home thinking its in the bag. And all I could think was wasn’t Kerry up 5 or 6 on election day???? When I get depressed I listen to Hannity and Rush. I also read zogby saying many repubs have defected and Obama has extremely high dem support. Obama repubs are the washington DC repubs, I still think there are far more dems switching then repubs, maybe people are lying to pollsters, a huge number is hanging up. I have to admit I would probably do something like that too. I just hope no one gives up and decides to stay home.

  135. I don’t think secret is a bot either. I just don’t like fly by comments like that meant to lower moral. It’s not a question of being realistic about this election or being unrealistic. It’s a matter of just getting on with the job and not whining.jmo

    Signs Pointing To A McCain Victory

    By Steven M. Warshawsky

    —————————————————–

    Great articles! The factors noted in the 3 articles, are things that I have been thinking about, which are the reasons, why, I haven’t become an Eeyore. I have had my days, but the election is not over-yet. Btw, I don’t think there will be an October surprise. The RNC could have video of BO killing kittens, and they wouldn’t broadcast it. Note, the LA Times not publishing uncomplementary video about “The One.” Barf.

    Secret has been around. I don’t think she is a bot.

  137. Another factor, which was present in the primary, is the large amount of undecided voters, across the board. Undecided voters did not break for BO. They voted for Senator Clinton. The question is: Will they vote for McCain? 5-10% undecided voters, are alot of votes.

    Rendell has been asking for BO to return to PA, so the race must be close. Remember, the leaked internal memo stating that BO was up 2%? If that is true, then the state is open for McCain.

    She has more EXpierence than BO so the media should be held accountable for LYING to the American People they should be not trusted of any news given on Polictics …they should be sued and give up there TV licenses..and go back to am radio where you get the true news………..

    I miss Hillary i wish she the best…i will always support her..but never when she says vote for barackkk uhhh uhhh no nooo no Hillary…
    They think palin is hurting mccains chances what the hell is wrong with fox they are crazy too..lying that Bill oreilley..She isnt hurting his chance for one second..She is the prize and is one of US Just Like Hillary is one of US>>>IF it wasnt for Hillary palin wouldnt be in this Race…thats because mcains friend hillary seen what the media did to women…trashed them…and People see this the American people who watch these news stations know they are fake at PoLItics..and we wont do what they say..

    so after this election.even hannitys because he hates Hillary tooo…… let there ratings fall to the ground

    I bet Sarah palin can whip Bo butt she can speak he cannot speak he is born in kenya…Biden is Huiting
    BO..with his mouth..he lies too that Biden….BO is Unexpierence doesn not like Chrsitmas he wont decorate the white House and I think he says he doesnt believe in Thanksgiving..I thinks that is not an Americn..

  141. For all those name calling Fanatic Republicans out here! Listen you all. This is fandamentally a Hillary supporters website. You all have recently found your way in. Waded in. The hardcore people who made this up arenm’t republicans they are Hillary supporters period. This little alliance is a temp one at best – to defeat Obama. Most started looking at Mccain as option only fater Hillary lost and since they cannot stand Obama. Now, some may genuinely like him. So, stop calling names & grow up!!! You questioning my username being secret & claming that is fishy – it’s pathetic. Shows how deluded you are!!! The other one taking “Is our goose cooked” for a literal transaction & accusing me for being an ultra liberal – have you lost your marbles?

    Conventional wisdom says they will break for McCain in the end because Obama is an unknown, which is why they are undecided, and so they will go for the one they can trust.

  145. I ate my marbles…hard times here in TN. 😉

    Anyway, I do have some holy water left…am I gonna have to spray the room with it tonight? Cause I will…don’t friggin’ test me, people.

  146. oh sorry I posted that video twice, I thought the first one was kicked out because I didn’t remove the http letters first, so I reposted.

  147. Lin: I hope you are right. I am hoping that the undecideds break for McCain.

    Idunn: I hope you don’t have to use your holy water tonight.

  148. Do you have Barbara west’s email? I would like to email her too but I am having a hard time finding the email

  149. For Immediate Release: – 10/25/08

    Berg v. Obama
    No. 08-cv-04083

    Philip J. Berg is Appealing to the U.S. Supreme Court as Obama is “NOT” qualified to be President of the United States Lawsuit Against Obama Dismissed from Philadelphia Federal Court.

    (Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania – 10/25/08) – Philip J. Berg, Esquire, the Attorney who filed suit against Barack H. Obama challenging Senator Obama’s lack of “qualifications” to serve as President of the United States, announced today that he is immediately appealing the dismissal of his case to the United States Supreme Court. The case is Berg v. Obama, No. 08-cv-04083.

    Berg said, “I am totally disappointed by Judge Surrick’s decision and, for all citizens of the United States, I am immediately appealing to the U.S. Supreme Court.

    This is a question of who has standing to uphold our Constitution. If I don’t have standing, if you don’t have standing, if your neighbor doesn’t have standing to question the eligibility of an individual to be President of the United States – the Commander-in-Chief, the most powerful person in the world – then who does?

    So, anyone can just claim to be eligible for congress or the presidency without having their legal status, age or citizenship questioned.

    According to Judge Surrick, we the people have no right to police the eligibility requirements under the U.S. Constitution.

    What happened to ‘…Government of the people, by the people, for the people,…’ Abraham Lincoln in his Gettysburg Address 1863.

    We must legally prevent Obama, the unqualified candidate, from taking the Office of the Presidency of the United States,” Berg said.

    Our website obamacrimes.com now has 71.8 + million hits. We are urging all to spread the word of our website – and forward to your local newspapers and radio and TV stations.

    Berg again stressed his position regarding the urgency of this case as, “we” the people, are heading to a “Constitutional Crisis” if this case is not resolved forthwith.

    Hey, for all I know a meteor could fall out of the sky over Hawaii and land right on Oliars head.

    It ain’t over ’til it’s over. 🙂

    I’m just hoping he will trip over his ego walking down the stairs of Air Farce (That) One

  151. SECRET is not a bot. she has been one of the steadfast hillary supporters on this board for a long time.

    i feel for you. i was called names also by ‘lil old gripe when i expressed my own opinion about hillary and her campaigning for barack. how ‘lil he really knows.

    there are a lot of people who are in precarious emotional/mental states right now because of the obama media barrage. the minute you express your doubts – they attack viciously. just ignore them.

    SHENANIGAN, thanks for posting those articles from different sites. reading them helps.

  152. you know that Hillary’s IQ is higher than anybody in that senate lol..

    She would of Fixed this country but I think she will run again..She is
    smarter than BIll lol..and she is still MY President to be anyday of the Year..and once a Hillary supporter your alays a Hill supporter…she hasnt lost anyone..she knows it..and i think she knows most of her supporters wont vote for him..she was on thr trail and people trusted her and she brought up those issues up on BO..so they arent gonna vote for him.

    yep we have all the undecided and all the ones who did not vote in the primarys..
    and we have all those independents in NEw hampshire..they will go mccain..
    i think 12 million hillary voters will go Mccain…secretely….
    because mccain stands for some of hillarys things and working across the aisle
    BO has never worked across the isle..he hasnt done anything in a year and a Half hes been
    giving fluffy speeches and he hasnt closed the deal he never will…8 to 1 in spendingand he cant close the deal …

  153. imagine44,
    Thank you so much. Yes, I was upset by these people attacking me. But, I am a democrat & a clinton supporter. I might be mad at the dems now for what they did to Hillary & I don’t like Obama. But, I am not a sell out. I still have my reservations about the Repugs. But, the need of the hour is to defeat Obama.
    It is very frustrating when you work so hard & all feel it is futile. So, I expressed my opinion here. This is not a election ballot box. Just because, I feel one way or teh other HERE doesn’t change the results of the election. Imagine44 – thank you so very much for recognising me.

  154. secret,

    we’re all doing our best to control the eeyore side of our natures but sometimes it’s friggin hard.

    Go check Hillbuzz, top of the page. they have an eeyore adoption option and an eeyore rehabilitation program- hehehehe.

    Also gives good advice for those of us who sometimes succumb to the doom and gloom and I confess I’m sometimes guilty of it as well.

  155. basil9,
    I am at work – the proxy server here won’t let me go to Hillbuzz – so, will do when I get home. Thanks heaps – yes, I do get depressed & I am like – I am the only one hoping for a miracle of Obama losing. Then I think I am pathetic. I should just move on. Then I think no I just can’t do that yet. Election is 11 days more – have to do what I can – so it is going around in hopeless circles. The most eerie thing is – it reminds me so much of the Primaries and we all know that is not a good feeling!!!

  156. secret it’s not a case of being a McCain supporter. It breaks my heart that Hillary was cheated out of this election. I believe she would have won in a landslide. For me, McCain is an honest man and a hero. I may not agree with all of his policies, but when it comes to choosing between him and Obama, there is only one choice for me. If that makes me a McCain lover, so be it.

  157. secret,’here’s an excerpt from the adopt-an-eyore campaign. LOL
    Adopt a small Eeyore named “Befuddled”, who’s been listening to both MSNBC and CNN and who occasionally calls his friends to repeat what he hears on TV. Befuddled doesn’t critically examine anything the media tells him, and he needs your help to figure out how to see through polls’ bias and get to the truth. Please help him reach our sanctuary!

    $10.00 = Adopt a medium Eeyore named “Mopey“, who has stopped coming to phone banking because Chris Matthews told her on TV she should stay home, and she read in the New York Times that anyone voting for McCain is a racist, and she doesn’t want anyone to think that about her, so she’s just going to sit at home and mope instead of supporting the candidate she wants, since the media’s convinced her she’s a bad person for not voting for Obama.

    $20.00 = Adopt a large Eeyore named “Depressed”, who takes his “We’re all doomed! Hope is lost!” spiel to the Internet, and pounds away at his keyboard with hooves stained with tears, posting on every forum he can find that “It’s all over! We can’t stop Obama! He’s going to win West Virginia, even though he lost it to Hillary by 40 points in the primary, but we don’t remember any of that! The TV told me Obama would win Mississippi and Georgia and Texas and every state, even the 7 states that don’t exist but Obama thinks make up our 57 state nation!”.

  158. SECRET,

    most of these people werent around when you started way back when…
    very few of us are left who know you…

    they’re good people though, and they are trying to keep the energy and positive thinking going, which is good.
    on the other hand, many would be
    lying if they said they havent been afraid that obama is going to win.

    i keep hoping people out there in middle america, do have their heads on straight, and will come out to fight on election day…

    anyway, secret, talk to ya soon

    i don’t think calling people names is going to do it for you however

    Lin67

    Thanks for the Ted Video…

  160. JanH,
    Thank for for defending me earlier. Thanks. Sorry if my comments eroded the morale of hard working people to defeat Obama. That’s counter productive to my real intentions.

    Yes, it breaks my heart when I let myself think of what happened to Hillary. She would have won so big & it would have been great!!

    I poured my heart & wallet out to Hillary & her campaign. And well, what happened ripped my heart out. I like Mccain too – a decent man. I don’t know his policies. I hate dems & Nancy Pelosi & dean kind of dems. Scary thought to think ultra-left wing dems being in power all over. No check & balances.

    I kind of wanted not to root hard for someone like I did for Hillary – I am superstitious in the sense that I think they will lose if I openly support!

    Anyways – you know – there is no way I will want Obama as President. If Mccain dog stood in election I will vote for the dog!!

  161. skmf12,
    Its been such a delight reading yoru post. Thanks…thanks…thanks heaps!!!

    Yes, I am afraid Obama will win. Sorry if that freaks some of you. I am simply afraid. I felt hopeless. So, I wanted to share.

    I had such of excitement to see your post SKMF12. It was great. I miss us saying – Go Hillary Go!! She is the best. Love her – miss her.

  162. It’s been such a long and weary haul getting to this point. Too many disappointments and shocks. I don’t know what I would do if it weren’t for so many of you on this site and your wonderfully knowledgeable posts and links to cutting edge news. The one thing I am very proud of is that no matter how much the air waves have been oversaturated with Obama messaging, the Stockholm Syndrome has not taken over where many are concerned. Not everyone has developed a taste for koolaid and I hope that continues.

  163. hillary did not lose the primaries, she won the votes – all 18+ million of us. she was cheated in the caucuses and her party didn’t want her. plain and simple.

    11 more days, and it will be over. big dawg will say something about this election and i cannot wait.

    btw, they’re building barack’s concession speech stage in my neighborhood. scary…

  164. imagine44

    Some people in her party did not want her. I know of many in the inner circle that did and are suffering for it now.

  165. Barbara West’s email is:
    barbara.west@wftv.com

    Please do send her an email. That station is here in Central Florida, so what she did was doubly important.

    Thanks Lin67 for the video of Ted Neugent. He speaks the truth and that needs to happen more often. No bones about it.

    I am in central Florida pretty close to Tampa. John McCain’s website has where you can sign up for events like Sign Waving. If we are not working our a$$e$ off to get out the vote for McCain/Palin, then hello, President Obama.

    Again, I worry not that Obama will WIN the general election, I worry that Obama will STEAL the election. And though I love Hillary, she is not in this race any longer………and I DO NOT WANT A PRESIDENT OBAMA, but whining over and over instead of working toward a postive result is less than helpful. And, oh no that terrible R word again.

    I have an interesting story to relay, but will do it in a separate email. You will enjoy it.

  166. buyers’ remorse cannot bring back what could’ve been another 8 golden historic years in american politics. but those who deserted and betrayed her (the patti solis-doyles) will forever (2012?) be remembered and never allowed back in her inner circle.

    loyalty is big to the clintons. boy, the lessons hill and bill learned this past two years…

  167. PM317

    That is what they are reporting on the news. O is here tonight also. I really don’t think that McCain has ever drawn the crowds here. Palin they get excited about. That does not mean they will not vote for him.

  168. A mother, 42, who has the ten year old daughter I talked about earlier upthread told an unbelievable but true story today. She says they had to move into a rental home after her divorce in a not so good neighborhood. She and her daughter were coming home yesterday with their McPalin signs on their car. There were three boys hanging out that looked to be about 10 or 12. She told her daughter to hit the garage door button because she was afraid they might take her signs off her car and damage her car. The garage door went down, she thought the car was safe and so were they. She goes through the house and looks out her living room window to witness the three boys ripping up her McPalin signs and running off with them. She takes off in a run after them [daughter said she ran like lightning]. The boys went behind some bushes. She yelled at them to come out and return her signs. In the meantime she told her daughter to call 911. The policeman arrived. She told what happened. He talked to the boys, and they admitted that they had taken the signs. He told the mother that she was able to press charges because the boy admitted to stealing the signs. The mother told the boy[s] that they had two choices, either charges would be pressed or they could take their butts to the campaign office, buy signs, and put them in her yard by morning. The policeman told the mother that she could still press charges if the boys did not follow through correctly.
    Later in the evening, the mother of the boy rang her doorbell with son in tow. The boy’s eyes were all puffy from crying. The mother said that she was so sorry that her son had done such a thing, she had taught him better. She said that she was a teacher and would see that her son woud replace the signs. In addition to that the boy’s mother said, tell her what else you are going to do. The boy said he was sorry and he turned the sign over to the back where he had written, ‘I broke the law, I stold this sign.’ The boy’s mother said tell her what else you will be doing. The boy said my mother will make me stand at [a busy intersection] on the highway for fifteen minutes holding this sign for passerbys to read. The mother of the girl, got eye level with the boy and said ‘Do you know what a good mother you have? She is trying to teach you a really good lesson. I do not want to see you get into trouble for something like this, but I do want you to learn a lesson from it.”

    The Directoress of the Republican Headquarters I keep telling yall about said that really really early this morning a woman and boy slammed open the door and came in and she was a little fearful because there was something really intense about this woman. When the mother of the girl told her about the boys stealing the signs, she said that was them because what I sensed must have been embarrassment on the mother’s part.

    The policeman came back to the mother of the girl and asked did she know how old the youngest boy of the three was, and she said she guessed ten becasuse he was a good sized boy. He said no, he was six.

  169. hey you all old guys,

    I was watching Animal Planet last night – I was watching this lone lioness cub on its own – she lost her brothers & her mother gets killed by another lion and she is all by herself – cannot hunt as she is too young – so, scavenging to live.

    She moevs into this new Pride – and they give her a tough time but she roughs it up – and eventually she gets accepted.

    At this point – the narrator David Attenborough says, “For all the tragedies she faced – she will move on – she’s a survivor” – I immediately thought of our Hillary. She moved on – she is a survivor!!!! I love her!!!

  170. Most people are missing the real significance of this election. It isn’t about Democrat versus Republican, or race at all. It is about elites versus the average joe. George Will said on This Morning–about two months ago now–that it is no longer a question of WHETHER elites will rule the country but WHICH elites will rule the country. I think that the overwhelming and gross media bias, corrupt polling, even cross-over Republicans are evidence of that. Those people want nothing to do with regular folks and they definitely don’t have the best interests of the country in mind. I feel bad for the regular folks that are getting suckered by this, feeling that there is nothing they can do so they will go with the flow.

    First the media gave us George W. Bush, then the media gave us the Irag War, now the media is trying to give us the idiot BO. When will the people learn?!

    Where are we going to all hang out after the election? I, for one, would like a spot to hear what is happening around the country that is anti-BO.

  172. Joe, oh Joe, you lie like a dog, and when you lie down with dogs, you end up with fleas.

    Joe missed the memo, where BO campaign paid ACORN over $800,00 during the primary season.

    Joe was pissed at the end.

    Good interviewer. About time.

  173. you know that Hillary’s IQ is higher than anybody in that senate lol..
    ———————————————
    Hillary is a brilliant woman. She has the highest IQ in congress–that has been verifed. Also she is much deeper than most of them. Most of them are a mile wide and six inches deep.

    Take Biden for example. (While youre at it take him away far away somewhere over the rainbow with the rest of the leprachans). Lieberman–no damnit he is a keebler elf–different rotary club.

    Biden is a Bubbameister. Contrary to popular opinion, he has an IQ. But the word in the cloakroom and clubcar is he cheated on the test.
    Copied Neil Kennock’s answers.

    How do I know. Two reasons: first, in vino veritas (in wine there’s truth); second clubroom porters never lie when you slip then a 10 spot.

  174. Admin’s post above is Barbara West of WFTV-TV here in Central Florida. I will post her email address again, and ask that everyone send her a thank you email.
    barbara.west@wftv.com

    It was stated later that the campaign had cancelled an upcoming interview on the station with Jill Biden stating the treatment of Joe Biden as the reason; they further stated that the station would likely not get ANY more interviews. oBiden was pissed. But, like I always say, better to be pissed off than pissed on, except when it comes to Joe ‘Loose Cannon whose lips will sink ships’ Biden. Thanks, Admin.

  175. wbboei, Big Dawg is a brilliant man and likely would have been hugely successful without Hillary. But, he had the smarts and she had the plan and the smarts to plan long range to make things happen for the both of them. Hillary is without a doubt a brilliant woman. A woman and a lady. A woman with great intestinal fortitude.

    PUMApac is asking for people to sign up to get a head count for a possible lawsuit to reinforce Berg’s efforts to have a valid authentic birth certificate required of nObama.

  176. Someone upthread said that this election is John McCain’s to lose. That is correct–remember, GWB won in 2004. I’m not talking about how Kerry was ahead in the polls. I am talking about the electoral college.

    If McPalin holds onto every one of the states that GWB won, they win. Bush had 286 electoral college votes; 270 are needed to win. That means that McPalin could actually lose two of the following four states–Iowa, Colorado, Nevada and New Mexico–and they would still win! Or, they could lose Virginia or Missouri, and still win.

    The way the media tries to fake us out is to make a big rukus if BO is winning a state. McPalin pulls out of Michigan…BIG NEWS! But is it really? John Kerry won Michigan, and he still lost the election. It is the same with Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and Minnesota and etc. etc. etc. I always try to remember what are blue states. I find it encouraging that McCain was in New Hampshire this past Wednesday, and they are fighting like crazy for Pennsylvania. Both of those are blue states. If McPalin was really in trouble, they would be having to spend all their time in red states, defending.

    I don’t know how this election is going to turn out. All I know is how over-the-top the media hype is. At least, I can come here to get away from that.

    Night, night all!

  177. Secret said: The most eerie thing is – it reminds me so much of the Primaries and we all know that is not a good feeling!!!
    ============

    Well, the media is acting the same way they did in the primaries. There are some important differences though.

    McCain can’t be forced out like Hillary was. She had to follow the DNC to some extent; he doesn’t. He’s free to hit harder than she was.

    Nov 4 is not a caucus. The bots may try to make some procedures into caucus type confusion, but there will be a lot of experienced precinct election workers and local judges who will have none of it. Remember in 2000 the GOP prevailed in that ground game. Also, the bots can’t spread themselves thin enough to mess up all the small town precincts.

    =========

    That’s how most of us feel here … and at justsaynodeal.com … and at the other PUMA sites. Welcome!

  180. I made a suggestion today for Palin. When McCain and Palin wins, that a kitty be formed to collect money from supporters to buy her outfit for Inaguration, might even collect enough to outfit the family. The Directoress said it was a wonderful idea and she was going to propose it to the head, whose last name is the same as mine. She said they’d call it the ‘my name’ for Palin Fund. I said no, instead, make it Hillary Supporters for Palin fund.

  181. They are sooo scared of that little woman in Alaska, they have not even slowed down attacking her, pretty disgusting. According to the Ap on yahoo, they are now going after her bidding process over her much touted trans canada pipeling. They will stop at nothing to discredit her, the boys club is endanger of getting castrated by Sarah Barracuda. They are crapping their pants. GO SARAH GO!!!

  182. I have trouble believing — but I don’t HAVE to believe. I can go on doing my work just the same whether I believe or not.

  183. Confloyd: I wish they would go after BO with the gusto that they are going after Palin. I don’t know all the details about the bidding, but I do remember, she didn’t allow the Alaska companies to bid, because they were holding onto leases without drilling, thus blocking the progression of the pipeline. So, she went to Canada to find companies that were willing to do the drilling.

  184. brdgal, they are saying she pushed a flawed bidding terms to help her choices of contractor. What a bunch of bologna. She is not afraid to take them on and now they are trying they damnedest to get her back!

  185. Confloyd: Big f*cking Deal. Heck Haliburton received a no-bid contract for Iraq. They are looking for straws. Nothng illegal. Maybe, she didn’t want the jerks who were holding onto leases, without drilling on them, not to receive the contracts. When BO’s background, illegal contributions, state senate records, bc, etc., etc., are investigated more thoroughly, maybe then, I might be interested in Palin’s Alaska dealings. She probably knew which companies were the most corrupt, and didn’t want to have anything to do with them. I don’t care.

  186. birdgal, you singing to the choir here, I am with you 100%. Why the fuck dont they go after all the crap BO has done. The media has screwed up and we know it, it is so apparent that it is down right scarey. Come November we will show the BM and the Obama campaign who runs this country. US!!

  187. Confloyd: There is a massive amount of money behind BO, and since the campaign has bought so much advertising, his campaign is paying all the media their salaries. Plus, he is the New Coke.

  188. A friend in Europe has this to say at 7:30 AM London time:
    “Obama has finished his term! First he went to foreign countries acting president, now he tells everyone he is gone to visit his grandma. His running mate implies that he has fears if this man be elected”.
    The polls today show that people are curious and careful.

  189. You see I have a feeling the hispanics are not that enthused about voting in this election after Hillary got knocked out, so if in states like NM the % of hispanics drops that vote and the % of white voters goes up, thats where Obama will and can lose it.

    They really trusted Hillary but I just dont hear that about voting Obama, theres a difference between winning the hispanic vote and actually turning it out.

  190. THE TIE THAT BINDS

    Nery a day passes that I dont get into an argument with someone over this election. Once or twice in a blue moon someone will say Hillary is supporting Barack so why arent you. Last night was a blue moon.

    I told the questioner she had a gun at her head, was loyal to the party and believed in its values. But there is always a better answer. Or as Emjay would say: Le espirit d’la escalet. Since I do not par le vous francis, let me give you my best interpretation:

    But it would have been bliss,
    if I’d only said this,
    the thing that I wanted to say:

    (The way they cheated Hilllary) makes me want to deliver a blow to the party in November that is so powerful that they get the message. It’s wrong to turn on your voters. It’s wrong to manipulate primary election results. It’s wrong to allow one of your party loyalists to be trashed in the media by sexism and misogyny. It’s wrong to allow racism to be used as a weapon. It’s wrong to allow your nominee to ditch the party brand name to reach out to appeal to evangelical voters. So much of what has gone on this year in the party is reactionary and corrupt that we can not let it go unchecked or we will lose the only organization we have for standing up for those Democratic principles we cherish–River daughter.

  191. You see I have a feeling the hispanics are not that enthused about voting in this election after Hillary got knocked out, so if in states like NM the % of hispanics drops that vote and the % of white voters goes up, thats where Obama will and can lose it.

    They really trusted Hillary but I just dont hear that about voting Obama, theres a difference between winning the hispanic vote and actually turning it out.
    ——————————————
    In Texas, it is an affair of the heart. They love Hillary.

  193. BAMBI’S NEW NATIONAL ANTHEM

    Napoleon had The Song of Marsailles. The Empress (Queen Victoria) had God Save The Queen. The Czar had The Overture of 1812.

    Each of these songs sybolized the patriotic impulse and the gravitas of the ruler. Men marched to war to their solemn tones and many never returned.

    Bambi. who’s got a spine of steel, and talent that aint been tested–but will be withing six months if we are delusional enough to elect him has come up with a new national anthem befitting the gravitas he brings to office. Here it is:

    Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon
    Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon
    We could float among the stars together,
    you and I– we can fly we can fly
    Up, up and away
    My beautiful, my beautiful balloon

    The world’s a nicer place in my beautiful balloon
    It wears a nicer face in my beautiful balloon
    We can sing a song and sail along the silver sky
    For we can fly we can fly
    Up, up and away
    My beautiful, my beautiful balloon

    Suspended under a twilight canopy
    We’ll search the clouds for a star to guide us
    If by some chance you find yourself loving me
    We’ll find a cloud to hide us
    We’ll keep the moon beside us

    Love is waiting there in my beautiful balloon
    Way up in the air in my beautiful balloon
    If you’ll hold my hand we’ll chase your dream across the sky
    For we can fly we can fly
    Up, up and away
    My beautiful, my beautiful balloon
    Balloon…

  194. QUESTION: SHOULD A MESSIAH BE HELD TO A HIGER STANDARD OF PERFORMANCE THAN A MERE POLITICAL LEADER?

    The answer is an unequivocal yes. We hold lawyers to a higher standard than paralegals, physicians to a higher standard than interns, and specialists to a higher standard than general practioners.

    When you have a Shamanic figure like Barack whose magical powers are such that 70,000 loons fill public stadiums to listen to his golden refrains, and his apostles like Maria Shriver wander from town to town in a daze proclaiming that Bambi is the one we have been waiting for . . .

    You just know that with no prior experience he can solve global warning, rebuild infrastructure, improve education, forge a lasting peace between the arabs and israel, resolve our energy needs, pass universal heath care– all of this in the twinkling of an eye-between 1/21 and 1/22/09.

    That is what sets real Messiahs apart from poseurs. The do miracles and other works of magic. The Royal and Ancient Society of Messiahs will countence nothing less and the bots are equally expectant. Wonderful things to come.

    Will our messiah turn out to be the real thing or only a fraud. I have my suspicions, but in order to tell for sure he must first be elected. That is something I will never do.

  195. Good news from Zogby:

    UTICA, New York – Republican John McCain continues to gain on Democrat Barack Obama, reducing Obama’s lead to 5.3 points with just over a week to go before Election Day, the latest Reuters/C–SPAN/Zogby national daily tracking poll shows.

    The race now stands at 49.4% to 44.1% in favor of Obama. Obama led McCain by 9.5 points in yesterday’s report.

    zogby.com/news/ReadNews.dbm?ID=1611

  196. I just realized I will be at work the night of the election, right in the middle of Bambi country, lets hope I will be bombarded with sick kool-aid drinkers complaining of a stomach ache. LOL!! May we all be able to puncture a huge hole in that balloon the all ride on with the messiah!

  197. Confloyd, I think this race would tighten quite a bit. I believe people are finally realizing that Obama is UNACCEPTABLE and there will be quite a shift. I would love to see a repeat of New Hampshire and would love to watch the MSNBC morons cry their hearts out complaining about Bradley effect.

  198. It is kind of funny as more people really start listening and deciding the “Ones” numbers keep tumbling. JUst a few days left, lets hope that people will see what a fraud this man really is!

  199. Look its going to be Hillary all over again, look what happened in the run up to Super Tuesday and the primaries, all the late deciders went decisively for Hillary. If Obama’s rhetoric has not won them over by now, it’s not.

    The last week is when it all happens and they all start paying attention, thats why I hope mcCain saved his wad for the last week and does a full on assault.

  200. and even without a full-on assault, this is when people go to the booth to vote. and that is where bambi is weakest.

    this is not a caucus anymore, bambi.

  201. Don’t you think that Zogby poll is a little odd? Obama went from a 2pt lead, to a 9 pt lead, back down to a 6 point lead, in a matter of a few days??? I’m not sure I believe that. I can’t help but wonder if his 9 point poll was incorrect. Nothing spectacular happened to give him a 9 point lead from a 2 point lead.

    Most people are missing the real significance of this election. It isn’t about Democrat versus Republican, or race at all. It is about elites versus the average joe. George Will said on This Morning–about two months ago now–that it is no longer a question of WHETHER elites will rule the country but WHICH elites will rule the country. I think that the overwhelming and gross media bias, corrupt polling, even cross-over Republicans are evidence of that. Those people want nothing to do with regular folks and they definitely don’t have the best interests of the country in mind. I feel bad for the regular folks that are getting suckered by this, feeling that there is nothing they can do so they will go with the flow.

    First the media gave us George W. Bush, then the media gave us the Irag War, now the media is trying to give us the idiot BO. When will the people learn?!

    Where are we going to all hang out after the election? I, for one, would like a spot to hear what is happening around the country that is anti-BO.

    =====
    Very well said! I can’t tell you how many times I hear shouldn’t the president be smarter than the rest of us? where does this come from? The intent was for the people by the people, not someone who passes a litmus test. And that is why you see the republicans you see going over, they are elites or looking to save their legacy as in Powell, or they are tired of a president who isn’t eloquent, and Obama is so eloquent. Or they want to be on the what they think is the winning side. I disagree the media gave us Bush though, they tried everything in their power for that not to happen, the elites lost that election, it is the biggest reason Kerry was rejected, he was perceived as an elite, and since it didn’t work they double downed their efforts this election. The media always hated Bush, more than they hated Reagan.

  205. Some Good Morning News!

    From virginiaviacon at hillbuzz.

    I was having dinner a night ago with a friend of mine who is a statistician for a well-regarded private polling company. They do some work for Republicans in California, but most of the work they do is for Democrats or Democrat-leaning operations (Unions, etc.). Anyway, her shop was retained to do a few Presidential polls for targetted states on behalf of a union so the union could decide where to spend their ad dollars for the last week. They did Ohio, Florida, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada and Missouri. After mocking the hell out of the voter id spreads used by Rassmussen, Zogby, etc. (and this is coming from a committed Dem who will be voting for Barry O) she said the results of their polling lead her to believe that McCain will definitely win FL, OH, NC, MO and NV. She says Obama definitely wins New Mexico. She said that Colorado and New Hampshire were absolute dead heats. She said she thinks there is a 55% chance Obama holds on in Pennsylvania and a 75% chance McCain wins Virginia. She absolutely laughed at the public polls showing Obama leading Virginia–and pointed out that all of those polls rely on Dem turnout being +4 and as much as +7, when in 2006, Republicans actually had the advantage by +3. She also pointed out that the numbers for Obama in SWVA look absolutely awful and that McCain is running 10 points better then Allen did in NoVa.

    Anyway, her companies conclusion is that the election will come down to Colorado, New Hampshire and the Republican leaning district in Maine, which in her opinion might very well decide the Presidency (apparently the district in Nebraska that Obama thought he might be able to get is now off the table). She said she has very little doubt that the public polling is part of a “concerted voter suppression effort” by the MSM. She said IBD/TIPP was the only outfit doing public polling that was “worth a bucket of warm piss”.

  206. WHOA!!!!!!!!
    Is this TRUE!!!!!!!!
    Archimeded from hillbuzz has links indicating BO went to the University of Hawaii on a grant for “FOREIGN STUDENTS”

    Here’s the link but i don’t wuite get the connections . . .

  207. Good Morning

    I am not sure how solid the number are in my state, but there are a lot of HRC supporters who are Hispanic, and who are staying home. The small rally for McCain in Alb is because this is not Rep country, it is Dem country, and UNM is here. The Reps are in the East side of the state. Notice the difference between the rally for Palin in Roswell vs the Rally for McCain in Albuquerque.

    Can he take NM? It will depend on how many Hispanic HRC supporters stay home.

    my birthday wish for you, a resounding win for mcpalin november 4th, allowing your voice and leadership to be heard once again.

  210. I went to Hillbuzz and looked and could not find it. They have two good articles.

    1. One on who accessed the Records on Joe the Plumber in Ohio illegally.

    2. Early voting numbers in Colorado, which according to above is a piviotal state. Reps are slightly outvoting Dems.

    http://hillbuzz.wordpress.com/

  211. I went to hillbuzz.wordpress.com/ and could not find it. However, they have two good articles.

    1. The illegal accessing of data bases in Ohio to get Joe the Plumber information.

    2. Early voting in Colorado seems to indicate that Reps are slightly ahead of Dems regardless of a giant push by Os campaign. Colorado is a pivotal state.

  212. nmf,

    i don’t understand the links, either.

    That post is evidently linked to another poster;s – entor i think.

  217. clintondem99,

    ohhhhhhhhh……..

    That friggin Tom brokaw opens his interview by saying “i hate to give you the bad news but you’re behind by 11 points” What a mf***er!!!
    now he’s saying JM agreed with GWB most of the time and showing clips to prove it – what a B@Stard – wonder if BO’s gonna be on next week and if Brokaw will ask him if he agreed with jeremiah Wright and William Ayers and show clips of that!!!!!! 👿

  218. Another NBC ambush!!!!!
    WTF did JM agree to go ont? Now Brokaw running down the polls saying BO ahead on everything except national security.

    I HATE that PIG!!!!!! May he suffer the same fate as his predeccessor. Now JM feitsy and saying I hope we’re not gonna spend the whole morning talking about polls! i can find polls favorable to me, too.”
    Brokaw dismisses him saying, oh these aren’t just pundits – these are polls from the general public.
    JM says it’s hard for me to agree with policies and methodologies i don’t agree with – shut that B@astard up.to
    I don’t wanna dwell on these polls says Brokaw …

  219. Man!!!!!! This is so OBVIOUSLY a hit!

    Now Brokaw saying do you HONESTLY believe people like Warren Buffet would be supporting BO if they thought he was a socialist???????

    This is ABSURD!!!!!!!
    JM holding steady but he should get fired up like he is on the trail.

  220. Now Brokaw sharing clips of JM speaking about taxes showing JM has socialist tendencies —–

    HIT PIECE!!!!!!!!!

  221. To his credit JM is cracking up – he’s sure the audience can see how absurd this line of unreasoning is …..

    PATHETIC!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh yeah, isn’t NBC teaming up with ACORN for election night coverage? that explains it.

  222. basil9

    do yourself a favour and turn that crap off. you’re going to give yourself a heart-attack! they (msm) are media-whores..every one of them. don’t give them the time of day.

    we will have our say november 4th! 🙂

  223. Basil, I would love to see NBC and MSNBC eat crow on the election night. I hope it would be a repeat of NH.

  224. basil, why do you torture yourself by watching that garbage.

    I wonder, which poll Brokaw is using. I used to like him, but not anymore.

  225. Today is the 41sr anniversary of JM being shot down in Vietnam.
    Jm held his own and throughout most of the interview the expression on his face seemed to say :you ignorant spineless POS – wish i could get you in the cockpit of an f1 and see you puke your guts out.

    JM was a gentleman and a statesman and Brokeback was forced to tone down his attack – last bit was the Arizona Repoublican endorsement of JM.

  226. birdgal,

    i wanted to see JM – i had been on Chris Wallace and that show ended
    – i usually turn on Sunday talking heads while housecleaning – i’m gonna go over to Howie kurtz now.

    JM was great.

  227. alcina,
    i’m not torturing myself – just reporting on what saw.
    ike i said, JM is a classic-act and i’m glad i tuned in. by the end of the hit he’d disarmed brokeback and almost had him eating out of his hand to the point i wouldn’t be surprised if TB was secretly ashamed of himself.

    I was also curious to see just how far brokeback has fallen since his glory days as a repoutable and revered reporter.
    Anyway, don’t worry – no more posting on that as the segment is over.

  228. AOL had a piece on how McCain’s staff thinks Palin is a Bxxxx. McCain needs to jump on this as it is a very sexually bias item. Women who are demanding are calle Bxxxxs, men are called agressive/assertive.

  229. nmf,

    I heard that. they’re saying she’s a diva. A$$holes.

    Forgot to mention one despicable bit brokeback tried to slam JM with – the colin powell BO endorsement – he played a clip of limbaugh saying Powell’s endorsement was racist and asked Jm if he agreed with it.

    JM dismissed it.

  230. basil9, He talked a lot about NY times article about dissension in McCain campaign. He also pointed out that Palin has been a drag on the ticket. He brought up RNC spending money on her clothes. What an idiot?

  231. basil

    i agree re tom brokaw. he was one of the journalists i held (past-tense) in high regard. no more. this year has changed everything for me. 2008 became the year journalism and the msm died.

  232. Just an observation, but this media exclusion stuff reminds me of the mean girls stuff, they made a movie about it. These mean/bullying high school girls who you have to do as they say or what.

    Somehow that makes the Media look really small to me. Just wanted to remind everyone, there was a Russian news person poisoned for speaking out. I wish we had such guts and courage in the American press.

  233. clintondem, alcina,

    guess this is a classic CYA moment – cowards all.

    anyway, i’m off for daily exercise so you will have a temporary reprieve from basil posts. LOL

  234. admin,

    thanks for the last Obiden video LOL

    with that video, was a link to this video,
    where mccain supporters are fighting with the press, calling them biased. the press is actually giving the whole obama tax cut sceneriio to the crowd, trying to defend obama..

    DUDE! DO THESE ELITISTS, REALLY BELIEVE OBAMA? DO THEY THINK HE IS GOING TO HELP THE POOR AND DOWN TRODDEN? it never occurred to me that the media latte drinkers, might think this was a whole robin hood move for the poor… SHEESH! dont do us any favors!!!!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2M7yx5EBrRQ

  235. skmf,

    And did you notice that smarmy smirking guy in the navy blazer holding the mike at the left.
    he was LAUGHING at the crowd’s frustration.
    Neither he nor the guy reporting will ever believe there is a thing wrong with them, their coverage, the media or BO.
    it is a complete failure to communicate.
    Wish there were more clips like this.
    CNN = Communist national network. ROTF.

    But — it’s the bot turnout that would be suppressed by thinking he’s so far ahead that they don’t need to bother to vote.

  238. Hasselback campaigning in Tampa, FL with Palin and her hsuband, wow, what a crowd! You should watch it. the crowd is really fired up.

    put FOX

  239. lin67,

    Good point about WHICH elite is going to rule. I don’t watch tv, but didn’t Brooks or some Republican like that say that it’s really a struggle between the new coastal elites (information economy, Google, etc) and the old mid-country elites (heavy industry).

    However I disagree about the media in 2000. They were very destructive to Gore, protective of Bush Jr.

    The pattern I’m seeing now is, that when a sincere, able reformer does run, they attack him/her, regardless of ideology.

  240. Senator McCain and Governor Palin walk the walk for you, there are some who talk the talk….. Governor Crist (popular in FL) is there too…. and Piper is on the stage with the baby CUTE

  243. Happy birthday, [should have been] Madam President. Happy birthday to you.

    Happy birthday, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

    Ohhh, how I have evolved this election process.
    -first for decades, I ignored working on campaigns because I did not think that one little person could matter
    -to not being enthused about any candidate, because all politicians are just that, politicians, and crooked as hell
    -to being livid about how the first viable woman candiate, better than well qualified, could be so tortured by sexism, mysogyny.
    -to being disillusioned with most all the MSM, Tom Brokaw, NBC, MSNC, CNN, etc etc etc
    -to being disgusted with most MSM, like Tweety Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann, Camellite Brown,
    traitor Donna Brazile, and all the ‘new’ talking heads that spewed nObamamania with such vitriol
    -to despising the DNC, RBC, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Braney Frank, Wexler from FL, Karen Thurman, and the list goes on and on
    -to tracking politics daily and taking note of every bias toward Hillary, and women
    -to finding out that I had failed to teach my only daughter about what women in America have gone through and had suffered mightily for the woman to get the vote, even as late as 1920 when Layton, a politician, told his wife he had cut off her household allowance, was divorcing her and taking her kids [because in 1920 the woman was the husband’s property, the wife’s property was the husband’s property, and the couple’s chidlren were the husband’s property]
    -to finding out the the Women’s Liberation movement of the 60’s had failed to kill off all the Male Chauvnist Pigs – that they are alive and well and vocal in their desire to keep women down
    -to working very very very hard to help get Hillary Clinton elected
    -to disavowing the two party system, because just look at what it has done to America; becoming an Independent voter where I can support the Person and only the any Party as much as I deem desirable
    -to believing that Hillary and then Bill had a gun to their head, and that she was being a good little Democrat even though her party brought her down in the most vicious way; that she is a sitting Democratic Senator and that she has to play the games
    -to seeing with my own eyes that she does not believe a word she says in reference to nObama
    -to seeing that Hillary now apparently believes that nObama should be President and that Democrats must win by any means necessary – she and Bill have shilled for the fraud beyond what would be needed and normal – so they must now be FOR him – I can never forgive them if it is their influence that brought nObama to victory on Nov 4th.
    -that delegates and SuperDelegates do not have the backbone to do what is right-that the DNC will employ gestapo tactics to intimidate and strongarm to their advantage
    -that the DNC will break their own Consitutional rules to GET their candidate of choice. They SELECTED the Democratic nominee they did not ELECT him
    -that once Hillary was out of the race when I gave McCain a second look – that he is a good man, a patriot, and loves our country even though I do not agree with their pro-life and gay-discriminatory policies. And in a time of two wars and more to likely follow, the country needs a man with military experience to guide us to vicotry – and we will have victory in wars when a military man is in charge at large.
    -I have worked very very very hard to get John McCain elected and have endured much, i.e. being called a whore, a POS, a b!tch,a c_nt, to go home, a hater, a REPUBLICAN, a racist, and yesterday I was told to ‘get some balls’ by a nObama supporter.
    I replied to them [a black man and a white man in the same vehicle] that I would give them one and we would each have two then
    -I am excited about the Sarah Palin pick. She is like me. Her family is like my family back for generations, and like my children now. I concur with the Palin description that Ted Nugent gave on Neil Cavuto’s show. She is smart, her family is patriotic, she loves our country,and the biggest plus is that she comes from outside the Beltway
    -I again am distressed over the hatred, sexism, misogny and vitriol that have thrown at Palin and her family – I truly believe that women should ban together for future elections and call it the ‘Vagina Votes’ and help raise up women who are trying to make our country better – I do not mean Claire McCaskill, Nancy Pelosi and the ilk.
    -I do not believe that things like abortion or birth control should be government issues. And I believe that the best method of birth control is the Aspirin – and Aspirin could effectively be used to sway elections the way we want them to go in the future -but why women are timid to use methods that will work and be instantaneous in results is beyond me.
    -now I worry that ACORN and nObama and the ilk will be successful in STEALING this election – and I fear for my country. Yet, he tells the American people EXACTLY what he will do, although in vague terms, like income redistribution, aligning with Ayers in changing the instutions of Education into children Radicalizing zones, that when given no choice that he will always back the Muslim faith…..

    What more can I do? I have come a long way, but I am no baby.
    Vote McPalin, it is the ONLY way to stop nObama.

    I could not agree with you more. I have found no equality or liberation of women in this campaign. I cannot help but feel that I would be better off somewhere else.

    I prefer honesty, and openness to what has happen with women in this countries campaign.

  245. I do think there is still a large number of undecideds. I have heard from two friends, whom I would have thought had made up their minds at this point, and they had not.

    I let them know what I had done. Not sure it will change any, but felt I needed to do it.

    citizens.johnmccain.com/citizens. PUMA:pumapac.org/bus.htmlalso has instructions on “how to do it”

  248. I have the feeling that Barack is going to win the popular vote but Mac is winning the electoral college. That will be freaking hilarious. Ain’t karma a bitch? Remember some woman called Hillary winning the popular vote? lol

  249. I belkieve that Hillary has not lost a thing and is as popular and respected as ever by her supporters and then add to those numbers the support of many republicans.ind.and dems that cannot stand Obama but are reluctant to express themselves for fear of retaliation by the misled and misbegotten dreamers that blindly follow the trail of lies,and deception that The Fence Post Turtle has promised them.Their life with or without Obama will be shattered dreams of all that MLK accomplished and gave up
    his life for.The Brooklyn Bridge is what you bought cultists now
    try to spread it around Suckers.

    By ABM9 Stay on your mark Hillary.We Love you and need you.

    try to spread it around as he promised.Lots of Luck Suckers.

  250. I can’t get on NQ, anybody else having problems? I could see most of the blogposts this morning but now I can’t even connect to the site.

  251. That BO winning the popular vote and McCain winning the electoral vote would be just TOO good, he would then know how it feels to win and then lose the election. LOL!! I would pay money to watch him cry about it!! There would probably be riots though!

  252. If he loses by a small margin he is going to try to steal it, he will call fraud, he will demand recounts. McCain needs to win by a comfortable margin. But wouldn’t his ego be crushed??? I would love to crush that arrogance out of him. Seriously he would be a disaster. Shouldn’t a president have some humility?

    Do we know the % of Dems Reps Ind polled?
    ========
    Remember something too, alot of these polls that are so high dems are based on the 2006 election. I heard this somewhere can’t remember where, probably fox, but alot of republicans were mad at the repubs in the senate and house, the growing government, and the huge spending, so they decided to teach them a lesson. They either stayed home, or they voted democrat in 2006. you will hear talk about how much the dem party grew in 2006, don’t necessarily believe that. Plus there are a lot of repubs who switched to dem during operation chaos, especially in PA and OH. And many of them didn’t switch back. But 2006 is what this huge dem sample is being based on, and then they make it even bigger to be in their favor.

  254. lin67, I haven’t been able to access noquarter for 3 days. I understand maybe why I can’t access it at work, but I am at my son’s house and his carrier is suddenlink, so why can’t I get on. I can tell you I think the Obama campaign is trying desparately to muzzle noquarter in the final days of the campaign just in case the whitey tape appears or something just as bad. I sure they believe it will come out of noquarter.

  255. that could be, but I read on here somewhere that he switched servers, it was up and running but you had to empty your cache. I tried that though and I still couldn’t get it. So maybe try emptying your cache. I may not have done it right.

  256. some promising numbers and great pics from hillbuzz

    hillbuzz.wordpress.com/2008/10/26/the-bat-the-cat-and-the-penguin-meet-the-elephant-the-puma-and-the-donkey/#comments

    fyi – i can log onto NQ. no problem.

  257. I have a new theory.
    What IF:
    JM’s internals convince him he’s gonna win and so rather than stir up problems with BO’s supporters by releasing more damaging info on that one he’s holding his fire coz he wants to be able to govern the whole country, not just repubs.

    And what IF BC is now campaigning for BO coz he knows the same thing?

    Would be great if it’s true, no? 🙂

  258. the local manchester hockey game had a bobble-head night where you voted for your favorite candidate and received a bobble-head likeness. McCain won. maybe a forecast of things to come november 4th?

  259. I remember when BC came here at the end of the Kerry campaign. I don’t think it did a thing. People had already made up their minds, and they just came out to see him.

  260. To: Senator Clinton:
    May you have many more happy and healthy birthdays ahead.

    In regard to the birth certificate issue, obama has not proven citizenship therefore one can assume that he is illegal in our country. There should be an emergency hearing and deportation consideration like anyone else.
    Mc/Palin will do just fine. I am looking mostly at our national security more than anything else also, Mc/Palin have proven their record. If a threat of civil unrest happens than so be it. We have to fight for America no matter what. Our children will understand that we care to leave them a safe America to pass on than a no America,
    don’t be afraid.

  261. I was thinking about how easy it would be for California to become quite close.

    There are 7,000,000 Dem voters 5,300,000 rep voters, 4,000,000 indies.

    Hillary had 2.7 million votes, Obama only 2.1 million, this is interesting because it means that at least 2.2 million Dem voters were passive in the primary. Will they turnout for the GE.

    On top of that, Obama has to work for Hillary’s 2.7 million votes.

    Now heres the interesting part.

    In 2004, Kerry took 6,745,000 votes to Bushes 5,550,000, Kerry underperformed registration by 250,000 and Bush over performed by 300,000.

    Here’s the interesting part, if we say Obama will lose 1/3 of clinton voters, thats 900,000 in California.

    So if you drop 6,745,000 by 900k and increase the repubs total by 900K, you get

    Obama 5,850,000 and McCain 6,450,000.

    Is this why Obama and McCain are running ads in California?

  262. hillary will be in NH this tuesday. i will not go. i will wait until she is free of the BHO bonds that stifle her voice.
