Obama Halloween Family Values

George W. Bush has been a singularly successful, amazingly adept and resourceful President – for his friends. America might be circling the drain but George W. Bush’s friends have done very well.

Likewise, Barack Obama has been singularly successful and amazingly adept in his career – for himself and his temporary “friends”.

William Jefferson Clinton and Hillary Clinton have been singularly successful and amazingly adept in their careers too. The difference between Bill and Hill as opposed to W. Bush and Barack Obama is that Bill and Hill have not only helped themselves and their friends have better lives, Bill and Hill helped Americans, ordinary Americans have better lives.

We are reminded of the various “accomplishments” and histories of George and Barack and Bill and Hill by news of yet another Obama relative that his turned up – living in a Boston slum. When first we read the London Times article we chuckled as proof emerged yet again of how little, with less than a week before the presidential election, we know about Barack Obama. The article was also a sad reminder that the American Big Media continues to protect Barack Obama and that the article was published across the Atlantic Ocean.

Before Obama announced publicly his decision to run for president Obama campaign operatives investigated then scrubbed his history. One example of the scrubbed Obama history which did come to light was the parking ticket story.

Before Barack Obama was a United States senator and a presidential hopeful, he was a Harvard University law student living in Somerville who parked in bus stops and accumulated hundreds of dollars in parking tickets. And for nearly two decades those parking tickets went unpaid, until a representative of Obama’s settled all his outstanding debts with Cambridge’s Traffic, Parking and Transportation Department Jan. 26.

No investigation of the unpaid parking tickets was ever made. What was happening on a certain month that earned Obama 13 parking citations? If it was Hillary Clinton or John McCain unpaid parking tickets no doubt there would have been breathless stories written about the unpaid parking tickets. Unvetted, uninvestigated Obama was given a free pass. Did Obama get the parking tickets because he was on the way to meet his drug dealer and or was he simply an absent minded college student not concerned with parking tickets even if there were more than one a day? In this apparently small matter as in big matters Big Media has not only given Obama a free pass, Big Media has protected Obama.

We mention the parking tickets scrubbing, not to emulate Javert, but due to the latest Obama relative that has turned up, this time in the Boston slums. Clearly, as demonstrated by the parking ticket scrubbing, the Obama campaign early on knew and prepared for some of the unpleasant events in Obama’s history. It is hard to imagine that a scrubbing operation that uncovers unpaid parking tickets would therefore not detect Boston area Obama relatives.

The London Times (not the New York or L.A. Times) did some digging at this late date and lo and behold an Obama aunt appears. Not just any aunt, but an aunt Obama had met and written about in his “autobiography“.

Zeituni Onyango, the aunt so affectionately described in Mr Obama’s best-selling memoir Dreams from My Father, lives in a disabled-access flat on a rundown public housing estate in South Boston.

A second relative believed to be the long-lost “Uncle Omar” described in the book was beaten by armed robbers with a “sawed-off rifle” while working in a corner shop in the Dorchester area of the city. He was later evicted from his one-bedroom flat for failing to pay $2,324.20 (£1,488) arrears, according to the Boston Housing Court.

As the London Times notes, Obama’s aunt and uncle live “just across town” from where Obama attended college. Obama (Barack) also knew that his “Uncle Omar” moved to Boston in the 1960s. After exploiting his aunt and uncle in his book, (Barack) Obama apparently no longer had any use for them.

We found out today that Joe – The Plumber, after asking Obama a not too difficult question which Obama still managed to bungle, was subjected to an “extensive” investigation by Ohio government officials. Obama supporting government officials authorized multiple intrusions into confidential databases in their pursuit of the presumptuous Ohio plumber who unlike Obama is not running for president.

We doubt that Obama’s aunt will be subjected to the same scrutiny that Joe – The Plumber has been subjected to even though it is very possible that Obama’s aunt is an illegal immigrant who has possibly made an illegal campaign contribution. The aunt is not talking:

Aunt Zeituni is now also living in Boston, and recently made a $260 campaign contribution to her nephew’s presidential bid from a work address in the city.

Speaking outside her home in Flaherty Way, South Boston, on Tuesday, Ms Onyango, 56, confirmed she was the “Auntie Zeituni” in Mr Obama’s memoir. She declined to answer most other questions about her relationship with the presidential contender until after the November 4 election. “I can’t talk about it, I just pray for him, that’s all,” she said, adding: “After the 4th, I can talk to anyone.”

Imagine that, an impoverished aunt, who makes a $260 campaign contribution to her nephew’s presidential bid from a work address in the city but does not bother to register to vote.

The Times could not determine their immigration status and an official at Boston City Hall said that Ms Onyango was a resident of Flaherty Way but not registered to vote on the electoral roll. However, that Ms Onyango made a contribution to the Obama campaign would indicate that she is a US citizen. Records at the Boston City Hall confirmed Zeituni Onyango’s birthdate as May 29, 1952.

Now we certainly do not wish the admirable Obama aunt to be hounded and persecuted the way Joe – The Plumber was. We certainly are not condemning an aunt who wishes to donate dollars she does not have to spare to a nephew that has been anything but decent. But is there any doubt that the story of the aunt and uncle, let alone the Obama (Barack) brother living in squalor and poverty in Kenya says a great deal about Obama and his family and societal values?

In his memoir Mr Obama describes the joy of meeting his father’s family during his first visit to Kenya in 1988. [snip] At one point in the book a half-sister tells Mr Obama that people “like our Uncle Omar, in Boston” move to the West.

“They promise to return after completing school. They say they’ll send for the family once they get settled. At first they write once a week. Then it’s just a month. Then they stop writing completely. No one sees them again.”

Obama exploited his family by writing about them and making himself appear grand in his book, only to abandon his family as soon as they became a burden. Even today, the Obama campaign was repeatedly approached by the London Times for a comment about his long lost aunt and uncle but neither Obama nor the Obama campaign “responded”. Obama did visit his granny the other day, not when she was in the hospital, and certainly not when he labeled her a racist, but the other day, when it was a convenient memory to exploit in his quest for the presidency.

“What is family?” he reflects. “Is it just a genetic chain, parents and offspring, people like me?”

For Obama, family is just a temporary thing. For Obama, friends are just a temporary thing. For Obama, constituents are just a temporary thing. Then, Obama never sees them again.

Last night, as Obama’s aunt read about herself in the London Times, Obama was on television boring the nation with a massive half hour ad buy. Obama made a great many promises he can’t be trusted to keep. John McCain responded to the Obama huckster infomercial:

“When you’re watching this gauzy, feel-good commercial, just remember that it was paid for with broken promises. Senator Obama signed a piece of paper committing to public financing of his campaign. Twice he looked the American people in the eye and said he would sit down with me before he abandoned public financing. He didn’t mean a word of it. When it was in his interest to break his promise, he tossed it aside like it didn’t mean a thing. He is the first candidate since Watergate to abandon the public financing system, and his campaign is now being flooded with hundreds of millions of dollars in undisclosed and questionable donations. His campaign has directly profited from his broken promise and because of that, the American people have to ask: what does the broken promise behind tonight’s infomercial say about the value of his other commitments?

As we have written repeatedly, Obama cannot be trusted. Obama’s word and his many flowery words mean nothing. Obama’s family knows that Obama is not there when you need him. Obama will take their money and run.

Obama’s constituents had the same experience as the Obama aunt and uncle. While Obama’s constituents froze in Rezko tenements, Obama raked in the cash. Obama’s constituents froze but Obama obtained a lovely Rezko-assisted financing mansion with lovely mahogony fireplaces to warm Michelle’s toes.

Today, finally, an ethics complaint was filed in the Senate calling for an investigation of the Rezko-assisted financing mansion Obama calls home. The ethics complaint invokes Alaska Senator Ted Stevens’ own dishonest personal disclosure forms which convicted Stevens earlier this week.

The complaint, submitted by the American Conservative Union, alleges that Obama received and failed to report gifts from Antoin “Tony” Rezko, a Chicago developer and onetime Obama political benefactor who has since been convicted of federal fraud and money-laundering, crimes in a pair of land deals involving adjacent properties purchased by Obama and Rezko’s wife, Rita Rezko. [snip]

The ACU complaint charges that Obama was the recipient of an “impermissible gift” when Rita Rezko’s purchase of the vacant lot facilitated Obama’s purchase of his home and claimed Obama returned the favor by overpaying her for the strip of land. A civil suit filed in Illinois earlier this month against Mutual Bank Corporation alleges that a bank appraiser, who found an initial appraisal of the Rezko property was overstated by at least $125,000, was later improperly fired.

We have been urging the filing of a Senate Ethics Complaint for a long time. This past July we wrote:

When will the Senate Ethics Committee investigate convicted corrupt slumlord Antoin “Tony” Rezko’s good friend and house strolling buddy – Barack Obama?

While many blogs and news reports document the seemingly endless Obama policy flip-flop-flim-flams, Big Pink continues to probe the Chicago Culture of Corruption surrounding Barack Obama.

Many do not understand that the central issue today is “Who is Barack Obama?” Corrupt slumlord and friend of Barack Obama for more than 20 years, Tony Rezko, is the key to answering that question.

Obama emits flowery words about change. The only change that Obama cares about is the jangling coins of real big change going into his grasping pockets.

The complaint filed with the Senate Ethics Committee unfortunately is late in the day. Ordinarly, the last week before the election is not the time we find out much about a candidate. The memorable exception was in the 2000 election when Americans found out that George W. Bush had once been detained for drunk driving. For eight years Americans have been subjected to more Bush drunk driving.

This last week before the election we continue to uncover unpleasant portions of the Obama true history. Videotapes are being withheld by Big Media although the tapes would help explain Obama. Obama family members sprout like mushrooms after a rain proving how little we know about Obama.

We do know that all the promises in all the infomercials in the world don’t mean as much as what a person has actually done. With the latest discovery of Obama’s aunt and uncle we are learning a bit more about Obama’s family values – they are Halloween Family Values.

  1. Big media is saying that they don’t print the rumors as they cannot substatiate them. They don’t even bother to investigate. The interesting stat was 83% knew about the rumors. They are not doing their job is they don’t investigate. They are really afraid that they will find out that the ones about O are true. Selective Jourmalism.

  2. Bravo, Admin! You have been hammering at this theme for so long! I hope with all my heart you get to see a day of triumph for all your great effort!
    And of course, we’re so grateful to you and for you.

  3. Admin…another great article….

    Do not keep that hope with the senate ethics committee…

    it is headed by Senator Tim Johnson from SD who came out of coma and rehab to obama support right away without even knowing the guy that much; he is the one who went sick and is up for election and Boxer sits on that committee…

    These DEM Senators are sicks!!!!!!

    As for Obama and his family…well with his connections ranging from Kenya, Somalia, Eastern Germany, Britain, Germany, China, Indonesia ….what do you expect….

    And yes his extended non US citizens family have contributed many dollars to his campaign….

    His half sister – Auma Obama was even given protection by the secret service at our tax dollars money!!!!

  4. The latest Suffolk Univ. poll claims BHO up by 13% in NH. The interesting party if you read the details is: out of 600 polled, only 24% voted for Hillary in the primary, 74% did not support Hillary. That is a 50 point difference (even if 30 points were from Republicans, still at least a 20 points bias). We all know Hillary won the New Hamsphire primary. Obviously, only bots are represented fully in the polls. Or maybe only bots are answering the poll. I really think McCain is actually doing much better than any those polls show.

  5. For most of the last twenty months, I have kept an open, objective assessment on Obama but this last month I just have been shattered.
    I have not disliked anybody as much as I despise
    obama. I even find Bush more tolerable than BO and that is saying something.

  6. And this halloween I do not need a scary disguise…there are enough scary folks in BO’s team and BM in the media to make up for all times!!!!

  7. Regarding that infomercial, the experts speak:

    http://www.nypost.com/seven/10302008/news/politics/tvs_top_ad_stars_pan_bam_135962.htm

    Two leading infomercial stars agree: Barack Obama’s half-hour self-promotion last night was a flop.

    “I don’t see enough smiling. Doom and gloom totally,” said Anthony Sullivan, one of the biggest names in infomercial history.

    “I feel depressed right now,” added Sullivan, an Englishman famous for his infomercials touting the Swivel Sweeper and Smart Chopper. The only thing saving Obama, Sullivan said, was when the candidate appeared live at the end speaking at a rally in Florida.

    “I think it needed it. I was about to throw myself through a window because it was depressing,” Sullivan said.

    He and AJ Khubani, who has produced infomercials for 25 years, said Obama also fell short of offering solutions to the dire problems he laid out.

    “I didn’t see a payoff. Classic infomercial is you show the before and you show the after. I didn’t see the music or the crashing waves of the Pacific,” Sullivan said.

    He joked the producer “needs a spanking” for lacking optimism.

    Khubani said: “Every infomercial lays out common problems, whether it’s a flabby belly or acne, and then it gives a solution. In this case the solution is Obama.”

    But Obama didn’t pitch the product – himself – convincingly enough, he argued.

    “We always spend much more time on the solution than the problem and he did the opposite,” Khubani added.

  8. I have written several memos today. Here is part of a memo I wrote on cheating which could turn out to be outcome determinative in the general election like it was in the caucus states. It is a foregone conclusion that Obama will cheat on a massive scale and will distract attention by blaming republicans (he+ ACORN+MSNBC). If they are caught cheating they should be prosectuted to the full extent of the law.
    ————————————–
    Last night I was told that there is an internal poll which the Democrats have which shows that Senator McCain has actually pulled ahead of Obama. Nevertheless, the media continues to hype external polls which use dubious methology to show an Obama victory. I believe this is intended to discourage opponents, and to lay the groundwork for appeals if Obama loses, or insulate him from appeal if he wins–since he was “expected to”.

    I assume the McCain campaign trusts its internals and does not object to being the perceived as an underdog going into the final week, provided this does not cause supporters to give up and not vote. But that is a very dangerous assumption. Why? Because there is a reasonable chance that this election will not be determined by the legitimate voters who are being polled (adjusted by the hypothetical Bradley effect), but by something far worse and potentially catastrophic to our democracy: the massive, coodinated cheating campaign being conducted in battleground states by the Obama campaign through ACORN and similar organizations.

    I speak from experience. I campaigned for Hillary Clinton against Obama in Indiana, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Texas. On the day of the Indiana primary, our internal polls showed Hillary up by 10 percentage points, yet that by the end of the night she won by only 2.5 percent. The 7.5 percent difference was due to the cheating perpetrated by the Obama campaign! In Gary, Indiana there were more votes cast than eligible voters, it was done through absentee ballots forged by temporary workers hired by the Mayor who is an Obama confederate.

    Massive cheating also took place in Indianapolis, South Bend and Fort Wayne. It is worth noting that the same thing is occurring today in the General Election. In Indianapolis, Obama surrogates have managed to register 105% of the eligible voters. In Ohio, the US Supreme Court failed to allow reasonable safeguards against voter fraud, and the residency requirement was substantially relaxed by a US District Court decision. Mississippi, they have registered voters in 29 counties than they have voters. In Florida they have registered thousands of ex-felons, and one can only speculate on how many illegals have been registered as well. Pennsylvania-philadelphia. . . In the immortal words of Yogi Berra: “its deja vu all over again”.

    Fraud Prevention Recommendations . . . (redacted)

  9. Admin, another great article. I agree with you and many the media isn’t investigating. Their answer is that they don’t report rumors. WTF, about all those rumors for years of Bill and Hillary. Just last evening at work a nurse told me she thought Hillary was a killer. That she has people bumped off! Now how do these people tell me that stuff if the media and the republicans in years past hadn’t reported on the freaking rumors. I am sick to death of the media saying that crap, had this info been on anyone else they would have had it on every news station 24/7 and trying to get special investigators in the senate on it. This is total bs. When is there going to be anything come out on this idiot?? Our country is going to be lost!
    I also read in the paper where they found an effigy of Obama being hanged and sent him a special note saying how sorry they were for this to have been done. They actually did nothing about the effagy of Sarah and McCain. Bambi deserves a gold medal for this happening to him! BULLSHIT!!

  10. wbboei, that is my biggest fear. All the big money propping him up will not silently sit by when we the little people are going to vote. They have to get their return on investment. Already there is a comment on NQ from NC where the voter says her voting machine “malfunctioned” that her straight republican choice was replaced by all dems. She canceled it once and it happened again. When she complained, people didn’t do anything but she overheard them say that the machine had been doing it all day. She tried to loudly warned everyone but was forcibly removed from the place. Even the big turnout will not help if they have rigged the machines and I bet they have. There is absolutely no way that they will sit silently by. In fact the rigged polls are for the purposes of concealing the fraud. I have lost faith.

  11. pm317, I am totally afraid that the polls have been rigged and Bill and Hillary have been blackmailed, so we the American people are just duped!

  12. PM317 and Confloyd: I believe the FBI is investigating ACORN, monitoring its activities, and may have infiltrated the orgaization as well. They need to tell the regional directors of ACORN that if they detect voter fraud or intimidation the violators will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, and when it happens make an example of the perpetrator.

    Phil offered t represent API when we believed they had a Michelle tape that would support the Indonesian adoption. Phil conditioned that representation on several items API must produce. They then kept making excuses for why they are not produced the tape or the other items that would have helped to authenticate the tapes. Without telling Phil or his Assistant anything, API then suddenly claimed to have retained Canadian and DC lawyers. No actual names to contact the lawyers or their firms. Then more and more excuses came out – and they NEVER told Phil they weren’t sending the tapes and kept making up excuses to Phil & Lisa. Phil acted in good faith to help facilitate the tapes release.

    I am convinced they do not have any tapes. It’s all lies to keep people distracted and perhaps hoped to get Phil to act in a way as to make it easy to discredit him. A perfect and typical Obama slim tactic.

    Yes, Phil has a tape of Obama’s Kenyan paternal grandmother stating in an interview that she was in the delivery room in Mombasa when Obama was born. If you listen to the translation of her in another interview, she makes references to return to his roots, see her grandson again…things to indicate they had been together when he was too young to remember and were then reunited when he was grown up.

    I don’t know what it is Phil is waiting on to use it but he will when he is convinced he can or it’s the right time. Maybe he is saving it for court. Mayb eit’s an exhibit for the SC. I don’t know. I do know he won’t use anything he can’t verify and authenticate. He isn’t in the slime business of making false accusations against people. Look, we all want to win because we’re speaking truth to power. We don’t want to win if we’re wrong. it’s about the Constitution. This has nothing to do with race or any other crapola.

    I have to tell you, we have no doubts about our accusations being true. And before you accuse us again of being conservatives or Republicans…Phil is a lifelong Democrat and has held official positions in the parrty for nearly 30 years. I have been performing oppositional research against the Republicans for Democrats for well over 10 years. I have been deeply involved in exposing numerous GOP scandals and crimes, especially during the Impeachment of Bill Clinton. There has not been an anti-Bush book written that has not used my research work. I have been a good netowrker for Greg Palst in making contact with many bush whistleblowers. I can’t think of any Bush scandals or crimes that have been exposed in which I was not deeply involved behind the scenes. I am as anti-GOP as you can find anywhere in the country.

    For people like me, Phil Berg and Juliet Stewart (who started Friends of Bill in 1997 and which I helped keep going the first year), what we have found that has caused us to turn against the Democratic party and oppose Obama’s candidacy had to be extremely serious. We are absolutley certain Obama is no longer a citizen, if he ever was at all. and there are major doubts about that status. In fact, because of the many shortcuts his mother took legally not to do things the right way, we have serious concerns if his sister entered this country illegally and think perhaps her birth was registered fraudulently as well. Their mother had lost her citizenship and never regained it.

    We also know in the digital scan of the birth certificate Obama has on display, when the layers of the document are “lifted’ you can see his sister’s name embedded in the digital imprint underneath his.

    We have a much stronger case than most people realize. If we can get the SC or the Third Circuit to actually hear the case, Obama’s candidacy will be done.
    He can’t pass the eligibility requirements. He would be out on the election in a nano-second and on his way to jail, taking a lot of Democrats with him for conspiracy to defraud, and a host of other charges. He simply can not serve if elected.

    A lof of world leaders are saying they know he isn’t eligible and won’t deal with him, his treaties and agreements would not stand up in court. Addictionally, a lot of military say they will not obey him as they took an oath of allegiance to the Constitution to uphold and defend it. The military are honor bound to disobey him and reject him if illegally installed. We will have a Civil War. And it will all be Obama’s fault for massive fraud and other felonies.

    Obama’s Secret Plans To Dump Pelosi, Citing “Failed Leadership”
    by Linda Starr on Fri 04 Jul 2008 02:46 AM CDT

    Pelosi and company sat silently by while Obambi used surrogate attack dogs in an ongoing campaign of misogynistic hate speech gleefully encouraged behind the scnes by Nancy Pelosi, considered by many to be the worst Speaker of the House in the hisotry of the country in refusing to Impeach the most Impeachable president and vice president ever. It seems that Pelosi favors House Representative Rahm Emmanuelle to replace Obambi’s vacated Senate seat if he wins his General Election bid for President.

    However, a high ranking campaign insider reveals a poorly guarded secret in Illinois Democratic political circles, Obambi plans to use a similarly themed misogynsitic whisper campaign to oust Pelosi for her failed leadership in the House. In truth, a person very close to her who she considers a friend and ally, unbeknownst to her, is conspiring with Obambi to dump her for this man due to the overwhelming dislike of her by Obambi supporters, who are still furious that Pelosi has failed to put Impeachment back on the table, and by Obambi who is a misogynistic control freak. It seems Pelosi’s schemes to foil Senator Hillary Clinton’s bid for president are coming home to roost. The weapons of misogynistic hate speech will now be used to unseat Pelosi, when her best ally might well have been Senator Clinton, who as President, would have fought misogyny as the best weapon to use to defeat women in office. Pelosi has conspired to support a candidate who is orchestrating her own political demise. And she thought she was sooo smart in helping to stop Senator Clinton! Karma Nancy, karma. Nancy,you desere it for having done so much to enable BushCo and allow the financial bankruptcy of this country, leaving a greater mess to clean up after she is booted out on her butt.

    Glory be, finally a reason to consider voting for Obambi, but one not quite good enough to actually do it. … more »

  15. OH BOY, this is turning into “AS THE ELECTION TURNS”, I want Pelosi out, but do we have to hire Bambi to do it???

    His performance on the infomercial displays his depressed personality, something I keep bring up. I personnel think that is a problem for a leader.

    Also, I agree, any rumor on HRC and WJC was brought out immediately, and pursured.

    I guess what bothers me is making sure that someone meets the directions of the consitution in running for the Presidency should be an important issue for the press. A rumor that they should have either prove or disprove by now. Yet, they don’t even want to cover the law suits in the matter.

    They made sure McCain was eligible.

    However, any other law suit Hollywood comes up with, they are right there. So why so little mention of the Law suit brought to ask for verification of Os birth.

    PURGE: SKEPTICAL REPORTERS TOSSED OFF OBAMA PLANE
    Fri Oct 31 2008 08:39:55 ET

    NY POST, DALLAS MORNING NEWS, WASHINGTON TIMES TOLD TO GET OUT… ALL 3 ENDORSED MCCAIN

    **Exclusive**

    The Obama campaign has decided to heave out three newspapers from its plane for the final days of its blitz across battleground states — and all three endorsed Sen. John McCain for president!

    The NY POST, WASHINGTON TIMES and DALLAS MORNING NEWS have all been told to move out by Sunday to make room for network bigwigs — and possibly for the inclusion of reporters from two black magazines, ESSENCE and JET, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

    Despite pleas from top editors of the three newspapers that have covered the campaign for months at extraordinary cost, the Obama campaign says their reporters — and possibly others — will have to vacate their coveted seats so more power players can document the final days of Sen. Barack Obama’s historic campaign to become the first black American president.

    MORE

    Some told the DRUDGE REPORT that the reporters are being ousted to bring on documentary film-makers to record the final days; others expect to see on board more sympathetic members of the media, including the NY TIMES’ Maureen Dowd, who once complained that she was barred from McCain’s Straight Talk Express airplane.

    After a week of quiet but desperate behind-the-scenes negotiations, the reporters of the three papers heard last night that they were definitely off for the final swing. They are already planning how to cover the final days by flying commercial or driving from event to event.

    Developing…

  19. I think BO is too young to be president – I mean when I gather most of the things he said and the way he said them over the last 21 months, he should wait a few terms before he qualifies.
    Here is a confirmation from late night.:

    David Letterman: “I thought it was one of those heartwarming infomercials. It had a wonderful ending. In the final scene Barack Obama is adopted by Angelina Jolie.”

  20. If anyone has or had an important tape which would damage the campaign of Nobama, I’m sure it has been bought, or it has been suppressed, or the owner has been successfully threatened. I haven’t expected to see any such tape for months now.

    I can only read the reports here that suggest McCain has a chance to pull this thing out in spite of all the media bias, and in spite of all the money being spent on the other side, and in spite of the fraud in the election process.

    I have joked about my wife’s third world country for all the strange people they have elected as President there. I brought her over here in time for her to laugh at us for electing a nobody like Nobama. Actually she hopes along with me that we are smarter than that.

    With all the stuff going on with this election being smart enough may not even matter. I know this sounds negative, but actually I’m still hoping our side wins. I will continue to hang in there, and I will continue to read the great posts on this site.

    Thanks, everybody!

    This came in my email last night from the Jewish group I’m a member of (I’m not Jewish, and hardly read the posts anymore right now, but this caught my eye and I’m glad it did). It’s long, but very interesting:
    Obama campaign staffer blows the whistle – THIS IS HUGE
    Posted on Team Sarah
    Another Obama campaign staffer spills guts from redstate.com (cant attest to the authenticity of it but sounds interesting)…I found this posted over on the hillaryclinton.net forum
    After a long and careful consideration of all the implications and possible consequences of my actions today, I have decided to go through with this in the hope that our country can indeed be guided into the right direction. First, a little personal background… I am a female grad student in my 20’s, and a registered Democrat. During the primaries, I was a campaign worker for the Clinton candidacy. I believed in her and still do, staying all the way to the bitter end. And believe me, it was bitter. The snippets you’ve heard from various media outlets only grazed the surface. There was no love between the Clinton and Obama campaigns, and these feelings extended all the way to the top. Hillary was no dope though, and knew that any endorsement of Obama must appear to be a full-fledged one. She did this out of political survival. As a part of his overall effort to extend an olive branch to the Clinton camp and her supporters, Obama took on a few Hillary staff ! members into his campaign. I was one such worker. Though I was still bitterly loyal to Hillary, I still held out hope that he would choose her as VP. In fact, there was a consensus among us transplants that in the end, he HAD to choose her. It was the only logical choice. I also was committed to the Democratic cause and without much of a second thought, transferred my allegiance to Senator Obama.
    I’m going to let you in on a few secrets here, and this is not because I enjoy the gossip or the attention directed my way. I’m doing this because I doubt much of you know the true weaknesses of Obama. Another reason for my doing this is that I am lost faith in this campaign, and feel that this choice has been forced on many people in this country. Put simply, you are being manipulated. That was and is our job – to manipulate you (the electorate) and the media (we already had them months ago). Our goal is to create chaos with the other side, not hope. I’ve come to the realization (as the campaign already has) that if this comes to the issues, Barack Obama doesn’t have a chance. His only chance is to foster disorganization, chaos, despair, and a sense of inevitability among the Republicans. It has worked up until now. Joe the Plumber has put the focus on the issues again, and this scares us more than anything. Being in a position t! o know these things, I will rate what the Obama campaign already knows are their weak links from the most important on down.
    1 – Hillary voters. Internal polling suggests that at best, we are taking 70-75% of these voters. Other estimates are as low as 60% in some areas – particularly Ohio and western PA. My biggest problem with this campaign’s strategy was the decision NOT to offer Hillary the VP slot. She was ready and able to take this on, and would have campaigned enthusiastically for it. This selection would have also brought virtually all of her supporters into the fold, and the Obama campaign knew it. Though I have no way of knowing this for certain, and I do admit that I am relying on internal gossip, Senator Obama actually went against the advice of his top advisors. They wanted him to choose her, but the only significant opposition to this within the campaign came from Barack and Michelle Obama. In short, he let personal feelings take precedence over what was the most logical thing to do. Biden, by the way, has been a disaster inside the campaign. Everyone cringes when! ever he gives an interview, and he creates so many headaches as the campaign has to stay on their toes in order to disseminate information and spin whatever it was he was trying to say.
    2 – Sarah Palin. Don’t believe what the media is telling you about how horrible a choice she was. Again, our internal polling suggest that though she has had a minimal impact on pulling disaffected Hillary Democrats to McCain, she has done wonders in mobilizing the base for McCain. Another thing – we were completely taken by surprise with her pick. In my capacity in the research department, I looked into the backgrounds of Leiberman, Romney, Pawlenty and Ridge, and prepared briefs. I don’t mind bragging that we had pretty good stuff on all of them. With Leiberman, the plan was to paint him as an erratic old-timer who didn’t have a clue as to what he was doing (pretty much a clone of McCain). In Romney, we had him pegged as an evil capitalist who cut jobs. Pawlenty was going to get the “Quayle treatment”, or more precisely: a pretty face, with no valid experience. Tom Ridge was going to be used to provide a direct li! nk from McCain to Bush. As you can see, we were quite enamored of all of them. Then the unexpected happened – Sarah Palin. We had no clue as to how to handle her, and bungled it from the start. Though through our misinformation networks, we have successfully taken some of the shine off. But let there be no doubt. She remains a major obstacle. She has singlehanded solidified “soft” Republican support, mobilized the McCain ground game, and has even had some appeal to independents and Hillary voters. This is what our internal polling confirms.
    3 – Obama’s radical connections. Standards operating procedure has been to cry “racism” whenever one of these has been brought up. We even have a detailed strategy ready to go should McCain ever bring Rev. Wright up. Though by themselves they are of minimal worth, taken together, Rev. Wright, Bill Ayers, Father Pfelger, and now, Rashid Khalili, are exactly what the campaign does not need. The more focus on them, the more this election becomes a referendum on Obama. The campaign strategy from the very beginning was to make this election a referendum on Bush. Strategists have been banging their head on how successfully McCain has distanced himself from Bush. This has worked, and right now the tide is in his favor. People are taking a new look at Barack Obama, and our experience when this happens tells us this is not good news at all. When they take a look at him, one or more of these names are bound to be brought up. McCain has wisely ! not harped on this in recent weeks and let voters decide for themselves. This was a trap we set for him, and he never fully took the bait. Senator Obama openly dared him to bring up Ayers. This was not due to machismo on the part of Obama, but actually due to campaign strategy. Though McCain’s reference to Ayers fell flat in the last debate, people in the Obama campaign were actually disappointed that he didn’t follow through on it more and getting into it. Our focus groups found this out: When McCain brings these connections up, voters are turned off to him. They’d rather take this into consideration themselves, and when this happens, our numbers begin to tank.
    4 – The Bradley Effect. Don’t believe these polls for a second. I just went over our numbers and found that we have next to no chance in the following states: Missouri, Indiana, North Carolina, Florida, New Hampshire and Nevada. Ohio leans heavily to McCain, but is too close to call it for him. Virginia, Pennsylvania, Colorado, New Mexico and Iowa are the true “toss up states”. The only two of these the campaign feels “confident” in are Iowa and New Mexico. The reason for such polling discrepancy is the Bradley Effect, and this is a subject of much discussion in the campaign. In general, we tend to take a -10 point percentage in allowing for this, and are not comfortable until the polls give us a spread well over this mark. This is why we are still campaigning in Virginia and Pennsylvania! This is why Ohio is such a desperate hope for us! What truly bothers this campaign is the fact that some pollsters get up to an 80% &l! dquo;refuse to respond” result. You can’t possibly include these into the polls. The truth is, people are afraid to let people know who they are voting for. The vast majority of these respondents are McCain supporters. Obama is the “hip” choice, and we all know it.
    As part of my research duties, I scour right wing blogs and websites to get somewhat of a “feel” as to what is being talked about on the other side. Much of it is nonsense, but there are some exceptions which give the campaign jitters. A spirited campaign has been made to infiltrate many pro-Hillary sites and discredit them. A more disorganized, but genuine effort has also been made to sow doubts among the unapologetically right wing sites such as redstate.com. Don’t you guys get it? This has been the Obama campaign’s sole strategy from the very beginning! The only way he wins is over a dispirited, disorganized, and demobilized opposition. This is how it has been for all of his campaigns. What surprises me is that everyone has fallen for it. You may point to the polls as proof of the inevitability of all of this. If so, you have fallen for the oldest trick in the book. How did we skew these polls, you might ask? It all starts with th! e media “buzz” which has been generated over the campaign. Many stories are generated on the powerful Obama ground game, and how many new voters were registered. None of this happens by coincidence. It is all part of the poll-skewing process. This makes pollsters change their mixes to reflect these new voters and tilt the mix more towards Democratic voters. What is not mentioned or reported on is not the “under-reported cell phone users or young voters” we hear so much about. What is underreported is you.
    I changed my somewhat positive opinion of this campaign during the unfair and sexist campaign against Sarah Palin. I will never agree with her on the issues and will probably never vote for her, but I am embarrassed of what has happened. I can’t ignore our own hand in all of this. What I do know is that I will not be voting for Obama this time around. Treat that as you will.

    And on another note, does anyone think Obi-wanna-bama has written his concession speech yet for when McCain wins? 🙂

    Will it be another 30 minute propagandamercial with “poor me” “you are all racists” overtones? 😉

    Maybe we should write one for him!

  24. Dept. of indignities
    The Washington Times, tossed off the Obama plane for what the campaign says is a lack of space, takes a shot:

    “This feels like the journalistic equivalent of redistributing the wealth, we spent hundreds of thousands of dollars covering Senator Obama’s campaign, traveling on his plane, and taking our turn in the reporter’s pool, only to have our seat given away to someone else in the last days of the campaign,” said Washington Times Executive Editor John Solomon.

    Be careful of sources. Redstate is right wing, and someone could have written this piece very easily. It is all information that we already know.

  30. So many news outlets now thrown under the bus. Remember Barbara West at wftv here in Orlando area of FL? I emailed her my support and here is the reply I received:
    Dear Viewer:

    Thank you for taking time to contact us regarding Barbara West’s recent interview with Senator Joe Biden, the Democratic Vice Presidential candidate. Thousands of viewers have contacted us. We have personally read hundred of emails and listened to callers expressing their opinions on this interview, both critical, and supportive. Your comments are important to us. This interview is part of a much larger body of work that has covered both campaigns for months. In addition, WFTV has interviewed numerous other candidates from both parties throughout this election process, and we pride ourselves in offering many diverse on air and online opportunities for candidates to explain and communicate their views.

    We will continue to offer a broad range of coverage of Vote 2008, through election night. This will include live coverage of any and all election related events in Central Florida from both the Obama and the McCain campaigns. You can see all of our interviews with political candidates at WFTV.com. Based on your passion during this election process, we know we will see you at the polls on November 4th. Thank you for sharing your comments with us.

  31. HillPAC just sent me this email:
    Here are the Democrats who need your help right now:

    In Mississippi, Ronnie Musgrove has shocked the pundits by pulling extremely close in his race to win a Senate seat for Democrats. His conservative, Republican opponent has even resorted to ads attacking me and my supporters. It’s up to you to keep Ronnie’s momentum going.

    In Pennsylvania, my good friend John Murtha — a strong supporter for me during the primaries and an important voice against the war in Iraq — is depending on your help to win.

    Raul Martinez in Florida has a great chance at picking up a Democratic seat from a conservative Republican incumbent. The latest polling has this race in dead heat and Raul needs our help to push back against Republican attacks.

    And in John McCain’s home state of Arizona, Ann Kirkpatrick has a very good chance to pick up a Republican-held seat. She’ll be the first Democrat ever elected in Arizona’s 1st district — if you help her today.

    This is your last chance to make a difference for Democrats in tight races — please contribute directly to Ronnie, John, Raul, and Ann today.

    I’m so proud of all the work we’ve done, and so proud to have done it with you. I can’t wait to celebrate with you on November 4, as we elect a Democratic President and a strong Democratic Congress.
    ____________________________________________
    I would really love to be able to completely support my Hillary at this point, but she left me not me leaving her. I am such a strong opponent of having a one branch government that I voted [early voting here in FL] for McPalin and all down Republicans. I have met some of the down ticket Republicans and they are not so bad. Our founding fathers knew what they were doing when they provided three branches of government in the constitutioin, and yet Obama seems to want allt he power, and if he gets all the power of all the government, THERE WILL BE NO FUTURE ELECTIONS!!!! jmho.

  32. Admin, again a wonderful expose.

    Please everyone, phonebank through johnmccain.com in all of the toss up states, but most especially in FLORIDA! If McPalin loses Florida, PA, and OH the election will be lost.

  33. I just DO NOT WANT any effing govt to share/distribute my hard earned dollars as they see fit. It will only go to ayers/rezko/feituni/omar and those druggies that obama shared his joints/coke with!!!!

    McCain for President, Part II
    By Charles Krauthammer

    WASHINGTON — Last week I made the open-and-shut case for John McCain: In a dangerous world entering an era of uncontrolled nuclear proliferation, the choice between the most prepared foreign policy candidate in memory vs. a novice with zero experience and the wobbliest one-world instincts is not a close call.

    But it’s all about economics and kitchen-table issues, we are told. OK. Start with economics.

    Neither candidate has particularly deep economic knowledge or finely honed economic instincts. Neither has any clear idea exactly what to do in the current financial meltdown. Hell, neither does anyone else, including the best economic minds in the world, from Henry Paulson to the head of the European Central Bank. Yet they have muddled through with some success

    Both McCain and Barack Obama have assembled fine economic teams that may differ on the details of their plans but have reasonable approaches to managing the crisis. So forget the hype. Neither candidate has an advantage on this issue.

    On other domestic issues, McCain is just the kind of moderate conservative that the Washington/media establishment once loved — the champion of myriad conservative heresies that made him a burr in the side of congressional Republicans and George W. Bush. But now that he is standing in the way of an audacity-of-hope Democratic restoration, erstwhile friends recoil from McCain on the pretense that he has suddenly become right wing.

    Self-serving rubbish. McCain is who he always was. Generally speaking, he sees government as a Rooseveltian counterweight (Teddy with a touch of Franklin) to the various malefactors of wealth and power. He wants government to tackle large looming liabilities such as Social Security and Medicare. He wants to free up health insurance by beginning to sever its debilitating connection to employment — a ruinous accident of history (arising from World War II wage and price controls) that increases the terror of job loss, inhibits labor mobility and saddles American industry with costs that are driving it (see: Detroit) into insolvency. And he supports lower corporate and marginal tax rates to encourage entrepreneurship and job creation.

    An eclectic, moderate, generally centrist agenda in a guy almost congenitally given to bipartisanship.

    Obama, on the other hand, talks less and less about bipartisanship, his calling card during his earlier messianic stage. He does not need to. If he wins, he will have large Democratic majorities in both houses. And unlike 1992, Obama is no Clinton centrist.

    What will you get?

    (1) Card check, meaning the abolition of the secret ballot in the certification of unions in the workplace. Large men will come to your house at night and ask you to sign a card supporting a union. You will sign.

    (2) The so-called Fairness Doctrine — a project of Nancy Pelosi and leading Democratic senators — a Hugo Chavez-style travesty designed to abolish conservative talk radio.

    (3) Judges who go beyond even the constitutional creativity we expect from Democratic appointees. Judges chosen according to Obama’s publicly declared criterion: “empathy” for the “poor or African-American or gay or disabled or old” — in a legal system historically predicated on the idea of justice entirely blind to one’s station in life.

    (4) An unprecedented expansion of government power. Yes, I know. It has already happened. A conservative government has already partially nationalized the mortgage industry, the insurance industry and nine of the largest U.S. banks.

    This is all generally swallowed because everyone understands that the current crisis demands extraordinary measures. The difference is that conservatives are instinctively inclined to make such measures temporary. Whereas an Obama-Pelosi-Reid-Barney Frank administration will find irresistible the temptation to use the tools inherited — $700 billion of largely uncontrolled spending — as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to radically remake the American economy and social compact.

    This is not socialism. This is not the end of the world. It would, however, be a decidedly leftward move on the order of Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society. The alternative is a McCain administration with a moderate conservative presiding over a divided government and generally inclined to resist a European social-democratic model of economic and social regulation featuring, for example, wealth-distributing growth-killing marginal tax rates.

    The national security choice in this election is no contest. The domestic policy choice is more equivocal because it is ideological. McCain is the quintessential center-right candidate. Yet the quintessential center-right country is poised to reject him. The hunger for anti-Republican catharsis and the blinding promise of Obamian hope are simply too strong. The reckoning comes in the morning.

    We Can Win The Election, It’s Up To You
    I’m not kidding. We have victory within our grasp. And all you have to do to assure a Republican victory is show up to vote. This election is too important to sit out and let others carry the load. America’s future as a free country is at stake.
    Now I know that many of you don’t like John McCain. I was one too who said I would never vote for McCain, but it is what it is and we have no other viable choice. The horrors of electing Barack Obama are unthinkable to any rational thinking American. This election comes down to two choices: American freedom, liberty, and capitalism; or Marxist socialism in America

    Snip-
    If we didn’t have so much at stake with the candidacy of Marxist Barack Obama, I too would consider voting for Barr. Unfortunately, we cannot afford the luxury of a protest vote right now, none of us can. Please wait until 2012 and see what our options are then.
    It’s too late now to try to convince people of the character and Marxist agenda of Barack Obama. We’ve all read about his radical associations with people like Frank Marshall Davis, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Father Michael Pfleger, Tony Rezko, Bill Ayers, Bernadette Dohrn, Joelle Fishman, Mazen Asbahi, #HYPERLINK “http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=57231″Rashid Khalidi, and other anti-American radicals who have built Barack Obama’s political career.
    We all know that in spite of lawsuits filed in 8 different states challenging Barack Obama to produce a valid birth certificate to show that he is truly an American citizen and qualified to be president as per the Constitution, he has been unable to do so. Instead, he has spared no effort to conceal and seal his citizenship records from public view, and instead, produced on the internet, two false documents:
    One was a State of Hawaii “Certificate of Live Birth“ which was proven to be a forgery, uncertified, with the state seal missing, the certificate number blacked out, and the wrong form altogether for the year in which Obama was born. (Should have been white lettering on black background, not black lettering on green background.)
    The second document he tried to fool the public with was an altered copy of his sister’s birth certificate with the name and date changed. Again, he has thwarted all attempts to get him to show that he is an American citizen and constitutionally qualified to serve as president.
    As Raymond S. Kraft so eloquently points out in his recent article The Great Obama Swindle of 2008,” by his actions, Obama has virtually admitted that he is not an American citizen. Yet, this historic fraud perpetrated on the American people has received little or no coverage in the mainstream media in spite of at least 8 lawsuits filed against him and the Democratic party over the deception.
    CNN did a brief report, laughing it off as a hoax, and citing the Hawaiian Certificate of Live Birth posted on the Annenberg Foundation’s “FactCheck.org” website as proof. By airing this report, CNN is complicit in perpetrating this swindle which will result in an unprecedented Constitutional crisis if Obama should be elected to POTUS.
    Obama’s recent trip to Hawaii to visit his ailing grandmother resulted in the Governor of Hawaii ordering his state records to be sealed until after the election. There is no word as to whether he ever did see his grandmother.
    Obama’s college records would also show his citizenship, but he has had those records sealed as well. It has also been reported by Jerome Corsi and Philip Berg that Obama’s records in Kenya have also been sealed until after the election.

    More…..

  37. yidwithlid.blogspot.com/2008/10/rashid-khalidi-more-than-just-plo.html

    here is the summation at the end of this article (its a long article)

    Taken as a whole, the record shows that Khalidi — whether or not he should officially be called a “spokesman” — clearly was tight with the PLO, having acted as an adviser at the group’s request, and regularly speaking on its behalf.

    As a professor, Khalidi has established himself as the heir to Edward Said, the leading anti-Israel intellectual of the 20th century (with whom Obama famously broke bread at a 1998 Arab community event in Chicago). He has said that American Jewish supporters of Israel have been “brainwashed” and that they can’t accept the fact that Israel is “an apartheid system in creation.” And when it comes to peace talks, Khalidi said, “The United States is actually worse than Israel on some issues.”

    So what, exactly, are the “blind spots” and “biases” that Obama is so grateful to Khalidi for exposing in their frequent dinners? And what part of their conversation does Obama hope spreads around “this entire world”?

    Somehow, I don’t think Obama was referring to his love for the Chicago White Sox.

    Rick Davis: McCain ‘Dead Even in Iowa’
    Posted by: Matt Lewis at 10:57 AM

    Everyone has written-off Iowa. In fact, we’ve been very curious as to why McCain — who opposes Ethanol subsidies — has “wasted” his time there this year.

    I’m on a conference call right now with McCain campaign manager Rick Davis. According to Davis, McCain’s internal polling shows them “dead-even in Iowa.” Davis says this is the reason Obama is headed there to campaign …

    NOW WHY WOULD OBAMA BE RUSHING TO CAMPAIGN TODAY IN IOWA IF HE WAS 16% UP?

  39. In stunning spectacular style, Rupert Murdoch turns on Obama, totally vicious.

    http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/business/story/0,28124,24584219-643,00.html

    Barack Obama ‘could worsen crisis’: Rupert Murdoch

    NEWS Corporation chairman Rupert Murdoch has warned that Barack Obama could worsen the world financial crisis if he is elected US president next week and implements protectionist policies.

    In an interview with The Weekend Australian before delivering the first of six Boyer lectures on ABC radio tomorrow afternoon, Murdoch said the Democrats’ policies would result in “a real setback for globalisation” if implemented.

    …he did not know whether Senator Obama would implement all of the protectionist measures espoused by the party…

    With the US election five days away, Murdoch criticised Senator Obama’s tax policies as “crazy”, particularly his plan to hand out tax rebates to most Americans and to increase taxes for people earning more than $250,000. He said Senator Obama’s promises to give tax rebates to 95per cent of Americans was “rubbish”.

    “Forty per cent (of the US population) don’t pay taxes, so how can he give them a tax cut?” he said. “But you can give them a welfare cheque which he has promised – a grant of $500 – which will disappear very fast. It’s not going to turn the economy around at all.”…

    Murdoch said politicians should take heed of the lessons of the Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act in the US in 1930…

    Murdoch said Obama would make the situation worse if he implemented the policies he had promised the American union movement, which represented only 12 per cent of the US workforce, most of them government workers…

    Murdoch rejected suggestions that Tuesday’s US election could act as a circuit breaker for the current crisis of confidence in world financial markets.

    “To some extent it is beyond the power of politicians… You are going to find that the politicians are very limited in what they can do: they can make it worse but they can’t stop it.”…

  40. birdgal, djia, that Obama whistleblower letter is not all bad. It looks legit because it is not saying anything we don’t already know. In fact, we need such letters to dispel the inevitability theory and drive the Republicans to the polls. The media’s cacophony on November 4th will start in the morning to suppress all votes for McCain.

    Friday, October 31, 2008 McCain Surging… Posted by: Matt Lewis at 11:09 AM On the McCain conference call….

    … McCain Political Director Mike DuHaime reports that the McCain campaign is blowing away the Bush/Cheney ’04 grassroots efforts. According to DuHaime, McCain volunteers have made 24 million targeted contacts. He predicts they will make another 17 million contacts (phones and door-to-door) between now and Election Day…

    Update: Rick Davis notes that the half-hour Obama ad was, “mostly watched by Obama supporters.” He referred to it as an interesting use of 5 million, and noted that Obama could have run a week’s worth of 30 second ads in almost all the targeted states, for the same amount. “We don’t see any evidence that was a game-changer or did anything other than communicate with their base,” Davis added. In short, Davis seems to believe that Obama has wasted some of his overwhelming resources.

    Update: Rick Davis just noted that McCain would spend today with Arnold Schwarzenegger in Ohio. On Sunday, he will do what they are calling a “nostalgia tour” of New Hampshire. On Monday, Davis reports, McCain will hit seven cities in seven states. And then on Tuesday, McCain will be in Phoenix.

    Rather than defending Red States, it seems McCain is now on the offensive, fighting for states like NH, IA (Bush won it, but it was written-off as an Obama state), and PA….

  43. McCain Shredding Obama’s Lead

    Friday, October 31, 2008 8:04 AM

    By: Dick Morris & Eileen McGann

    Iraq isn’t the only place where the surge seems to be working. John McCain’s gains over the last five days are remaking the political landscape as Election Day approaches.

    The double-digit leads Barack Obama held last week have evaporated, as all three of the top tracking polls (the most current and reliable measurements out there) show McCain hot on Obama’s heels.

    Zogby had Obama ahead by 12 points last week — now it’s down to 4. His margin in the Rasmussen poll has dropped from 8 points to 3 in the last few days. Gallup shows only a 2-point difference.

    In each news cycle, Obama is on the defensive — staving off accusations of closet socialism and trying to wriggle out of his once overt advocacy of income redistribution. “Spreading the wealth around” has become the anti-Obama slogan and might become the epitaph for his candidacy, just as “brainwashed” was for George Romney and “Where’s the beef?” was for Gary Hart.

    Then, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s image is returning to haunt Obama. Yes, McCain refused to use the issue in his own campaign, but independent groups like goptrust.com are using funds from tens of thousands of individual donors to run ads featuring Wright and his relationship with Obama.

    Just yesterday, a tape surfaced in which Obama described the Rev. Wright as “the best the black church has to offer.”

    The double dose of Obama’s support for spreading the wealth around and his affiliation with the toxic Rev. Wright are eroding his once-formidable lead.

    If the stock market doesn’t send us all into shock again, the election could be very close with the undecided vote looming large. The key question is, About whom are they undecided?

    At the height of the financial crisis, voters couldn’t decide if McCain was really a maverick or just a Bush clone. But the spotlight has shifted: It’s no longer McCain who is caught in its glare, but Obama.

    As the Democrat moved convincingly ahead last week, voters began to seriously consider what kind of president he’d be. Bush and McCain seemed increasingly irrelevant as people pondered whether they really want to trust Obama with this kind of power.

    By this point, the nature of the undecided vote has likely shifted from people who are torn between wanting change and worrying about Obama, to people who have basically decided not to back Barack but haven’t sufficiently collected their thoughts to come out for McCain.

    Then there’s the so-called Bradley effect, where white voters lie to pollsters and say they are backing the black candidate when they’re not.

    To date, it’s been a myth: As The Wall Street Journal reported, Tom Bradley had lost his lead in the polls by the time California voted on his bid to become governor. But it may be real this year.

    Undecided voters may be reluctant to say they’re not voting for Obama. They may be concealing their real intentions by saying they’re undecided. (They might even not have come to grips with their intentions themselves.)

    High turnout may also be a wild card. On the surface, it seems sure to bolster Obama’s chances as large numbers of poorer, less educated, younger, and minority voters turn out to vote for the first time.

    But the swelling turnout may have gone beyond this social outreach. And, as it does, it can help McCain. After all, white voters back McCain by double digits. If the contest inspires them all to vote, Obama will lose.

    So we approach Election Day with the possibility of a rerun of 2000 plainly before us.

    McCain has closed to a point where the race will likely be very, very close — and we’ll have to stay up very, very late on election night.

  44. Krauhammer is brilliant as usual, but too pessimistic on McCains prospects. He is correct that Obama is Great Society screed. But he does not seem to realize the threat that implies in a teetering economy. Also he takes comfort in the fact that the public will wake up the morning after. On that point you can color me pessimistic because I believe Obamamaia is like the AIDS virus–the morning after is too late.

  45. “At one point during Khrushchev’s visit, the Soviet Premier boasted to the Agriculture Secretary that Benson’s own grandchildren would live under Communism. Benson replied tartly that he expected to do all in his power to assure that Khrushchev’s and all other grandchildren would live under freedom. The Communist leader then responded in essence, according to Benson’s personal account: “You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept communism outright, but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you’ll finally wake up and find you already have communism.” (Soviet Premier of Russia Nikita Khrushchev, to Secretary of Agriculture, Ezra Taft Benson 1959.)

    A Report from the LA Times Protest – Update: Times Says ‘Releasing the Video Might Put the Source in Jeopardy’
    Media | Thu, Oct 30, 2008 at 11:55:41 am PST
    LGF reader ‘cblesz’ went to the protest at the LA Times building this morning, and reports that there were about 150 people there — and that LA Times staffers were watching from the windows, smirking and laughing at the protesters.
    UPDATE at 10/30/08 12:03:21 pm:
    The Times has settled on their excuse now; another reader forwarded the email he received from Gary Weitman, spokesman for the Times’ parent company Tribune:
    Mr. Smith,
    I’m sorry you feel this way. I understand this may be frustrating to you.
    Allow me to explain further. Protecting confidential sources and standing by agreements made in order to get information is a cornerstone of good fundamental journalism, and a free press. If we break an agreement with a source, we risk other sources not coming forward with information vital to the public. In this case, the tape was written about extensively and only came to light because the LA Times made a promise not to publish it or reveal its source. That promise means not publishing the tape even to a high level conservative, however turstworthy that person may be.
    Despite the public pressure, it is important that the LA Times honor its agreement.
    Thanks,
    Gary Weitman
    SNIP-
    Releasing the video would “put the source in jeopardy?” Is this an admission that there’s something damaging on the tape?

  47. Obama Is Pure Socialist

    Thursday, October 30, 2008 2:33 PM

    By: Charles R. Smith

    http://www.newsmax.com/smith/barack_obama_socialist/2008/10/30/145940.html

    Sen. Obama has complained recently that he is being called a socialist.

    In fact, he joked that the McCain camp might call him a communist because he used to share his peanut butter sandwiches in elementary school.

    Of course, the senator cannot be accused of being a communist because he shared sandwiches during his elementary school years. A true communist would not share the sandwiches but instead would confiscate all the sandwiches in the lunch room for distribution among the party members.

    In order to remain politically correct, I will use the “duck” instead of “socialist” so as not to offend anyone.

    It is clear that Obama quacks like a duck. His off-the-cuff reply to Joe the plumber, noting that his planned tax increases are aimed at “sharing the wealth,” is a classic duck line that comes directly out of duck policy. Karl Marx wrote the book on duck politics and redistribution of wealth is a primary duck goal.

    Obama has also not made it clear what level he intends to reach into our pockets. One statement is $250,000 and another is $200,000 and another by his duck-like VP running mate puts it at $150,000. Still, close examination of his duck plans show that even people making between $25,000 and $40,000 a year will get hit with higher taxes.

    Much of Obama’s tax policy is taken directly from duck party programs. Obama’s tax policy includes nearly a trillion dollars in payments to people who are not paying taxes. The very proposal that people who do not pay taxes will get a check from the government is nothing but another version of state run welfare and very duck in nature.

    Now it is true that ducks like to flock together and Obama is no exception. Obama is well known already for hanging out with radical leftists such as ex-terrorist William Ayers. However, Obama also belonged to a fringe political party called the “New” Party. The New Party was composed of radical left-wing ducks.

    Obama even ran as a candidate of the far-left New Party. This little known fact is published online by the Chicago Democratic Ducks of America.

    “Candidates must be approved via a New Party political committee. Once approved, candidates must sign a contract with the NP. The contract mandates that they must have a visible and active relationship with the New Party,” states the duck Web site.

    “Barack Obama, chief of staff for State Sen. Alice Palmer. Obama is running for Palmer’s vacant seat,” states the duck page.

    Clearly Obama adheres to duck politics, because he signed a pledge to do so and even run as a duck candidate. This did not happen when Obama was in elementary school redistributing the sandwiches, but in Chicago when he started his political career as a duck.

    Another duck policy is to fly away from danger instead of confronting it head on. Obama’s duck national defense policy is based on cutting the military in favor of funding domestic welfare programs. Obama has pledged to cut future weapons purchases such as the F-35 joint strike fighter.

    Ironically, several of America’s key allies, such as Australia, the United Kingdom, and Israel, are depending on the U.S. to develop the F-35. The U.S. Air Force and Navy expect to phase out 30-year-old aircraft in favor of the advanced stealth jet. Nothing would please America’s enemies more than seeing the F-35 canceled.

    Obama has also made it very clear that he will cancel our national missile defense program, despite the rapid development of long range weapons around the world that can strike America and our allies. Again, our allies across the globe are depending on the U.S. to help develop a real defense against ballistic missiles.

    Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Poland, Slovakia, the United Arab Emirates are but a few that need American missile defense technology because they see a threat that duck Obama does not.

    Obama is opposed to supporting our allies, such as Israel. He has held several meetings with fellow ducks who called for a revision in America’s policy. He has called for pressure on Israel to settle the “Jerusalem” question despite having pledged to support Tel Aviv.

    Obama has also declared that he and his fellow ducks would meet without pre-condition with Iranian leaders. Unfortunately, the Iranians have made it clear that they have preconditions for meetings, such as an immediate cutoff of all aid and weapons sales to Israel.

    Obama’s duck foreign policy has the U.S. flying away from Iraq even as we stand on the brink of final victory. Obama has opposed the Iraq war to the point of voting against funding our troops in the field. He opposed the surge in Iraq and declared that it would never work.

    Of course, the surge did work and, true to his duck form, Obama suddenly changed his tune and stated that he supported it after all.

    While Obama says he will be tough on terrorism, his defense and foreign policy goals appear to be more than duck in fashion. One only has to wonder what pre-conditions will be set on meeting with Osama bin Laden.

    It is also true that Obama is in favor of restrictive gun control like most ducks. He repeatedly supported radical gun control measures and government restrictions with the duck New Party members. Obama has even made callous reference to American gun owners as ignorant folks who “cling to their guns and their religion.”

    So Obama sounds like a duck, walks with ducks, his policies look like a duck and even shares the same fowl like characteristics of fleeing from threats as other feathered friends in the duck world. In fact, there are very few things about Obama that are not duck.

    So America, do you want to fly with a duck or an eagle?

  48. I am so excited, I got a new HP lap top yesterday, and since my last one was purchased in 2000, it is like going from a dinasour to a rocket. I am wireless, and loving it.

  49. I do believe that Obama and his minions will go after the source of LAT tape with a vengeance. He is deadmeat if LAT releases the tape (just my gut feeling knowing what I know so far about Obama).

  50. Last Chance for Liberals to Survive

    http://www.newsmax.com/john_perry/obama_liberals/2008/10/30/145765.html

    “Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of the party.” Talking about conservative Republicans? No. It’s about liberal Democrats.

    SNIP

    The danger from the far left — there’s no other word for it than Marxism — has been with the United States since before World War I. It has taken numerous forms and faces, but in the end it’s the same old socialist, would-be revolution.

    At times, its advocates would stand up like men and wave their red banner. Most of the time, they preferred the safer course of, as they phrase it, “burrowing from within.”

    After the end of the Cold War with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, domestic Marxists went to ground, lying low, biding their time, burrowing where the ground was softest — in academia, in the cinematic arts, in the environmental-extremist movement and in the masscomm media.

    The Barack Obama phenomenon has given them, and him, the fig leaves they need to make an overt run for the pinnacle of power, the White House.

    SNIP

    If the legitimate, non-revolutionary liberals in the Democratic Party allow Obama to pull this off on Nov. 4, it is they who will suffer most. The lessons wherever radicals, left or right, have gained power make that clear:

    Once in control, the one-party authoritarians reach first for the throats of those closest to them. No hatred is more fierce than the true radical’s scorn for fellow travelers less ideologically pure. Ask Hillary Clinton after her loss to Obama.

    If the radicals win this election, it will not be long before they chase the liberals from the temple. The only Democratic Party left then will be the monolith of the far-left revolutionaries.

    SNIP

    If the radicals win this election, it will not be long before they chase the liberals from the temple. The only Democratic Party left then will be the monolith of the far-left revolutionaries.

    If liberals think they can play meaningful, influential roles in an Obama theocracy, they’re nuts. It’s not going to happen.

    The time for liberals to save their own political skins is now, before Nov. 4. They have an honorable, patriotic duty to stand up and say to America, “Stop right here! We want off this bus before it goes over the cliff. We were wrong about this Obama fellow. The evidence is now pouring in that he is not what he led us to believe. He is no liberal. He is a far-left radical and a mortal danger to this republic. Don’t give him your vote. He’s not getting mine.”

    Will any of the leadership liberals do that? Do pigs fly? Do bears go in the middle of Times Square?

    They’ve never tried.

    If liberal Democrats fail to put country above party on Nov. 4 and if Obama wins, they can kiss their Democratic Party goodbye. They will deserve the political hell-fires they have stoked for themselves.

  51. McCain Manager “Jazzed Up;” “Comeback” Coming

    31 Oct 2008 11:19 am
    A “jazzed up” Rick Davis enthused that John McCain is the middle of “the greatest comeback you’ve seen since John McCain on the primary.”

    Davis, on a conference call with reporters, said that the campaign has had “the best ten days of polling” since the convention.

    “We think we’ve shaken off the effects of the financial collapse that have suppressed our numbers prior to the last debate. Our own data has us dead even in the state of Iowa.”
    (Davis said that the Obama campaign’s data was also close in Iowa — although the Obama internal polling gives Obama a double-digit advantage.”

    McCain strategist/pollster Bill McIntruff said that when the “structure” of American party politics is taken into account, since 1980, at their worst, Republicans have ended a presidential cycle being down only five points in terms of party identification.

    “We see intensity increasing with some of the core parts of the Republican identification. Party identification on the exit polls is going to be in the historic norm of minus three to minus five,” he said. And “John McCain, in our stuff, has always run ahead of party ID. It’s helping create a very very close result.”

    McInturff projected a turnout of between 130 and 135 million people.

    McCain political director Mike DuHaime said that the campaign had knocked on 5.3 million doors over the past seven days and made 1.3 million telephone calls. DuHaime said that McCain and the Republicans are outperforming Democrats in terms of the numbers of absentee ballots requested and returns.

  52. This is Kool-Aide overdose

    Barack Obama’s senior advisers have drawn up plans to lower expectations for his presidency if he wins next week’s election, amid concerns that many of his euphoric supporters are harbouring unrealistic hopes of what he can achieve.
    One senior adviser told The Times that the first few weeks of the transition, immediately after the election, were critical, “so there’s not a vast mood swing from exhilaration and euphoria to despair”.

    Somebody better tell this gal:

    Oh, yes. It is an admission (by LAT) that there is incriminating evidence on that tape.

    ——————————————————–

    You can imagine, if it was something about Senator Clinton or McCain, they wouldn’t be able to publish it fast enough.

  54. here’s a better account on the McCain Conference today ( i think anyways)

    Team McCain conference call: polling
    posted at 12:10 pm on October 31, 2008 by Ed Morrissey
    Send to a Friend | printer-friendly

    With a mere four days left, the polls have begun to tighten in the presidential race. Pennsylvania appears within the margin of error, and a last-minute surprise could turn the race in McCain’s favor — or so they would like to think. Team McCain held a press conference today with campaign leaders Rick Davis, pollster Bill McInturff, Mike DuHaime and Christian Ferry to discuss the latest in national and state polling.

    Davis says we’re witnessing one of the greatest comebacks in political history, or at least since McCain won the primaries. Crowds are huge, and energy is high. Sarah Palin is electrifying crowds and bringing people back into the game. They feel they have the momentum, increasing polling in every battleground state over the past week, and have gotten past the effect of the financial collapse.

    Team McCain says they have Iowa as a dead heat, and Obama seems to confirm that. He’s going back to Iowa over the weekend. If Iowa was not in play, Obama wouldn’t bother. Team McCain seems to believe that more than a few Obama states may be heading back into play.

    McInturff says that intensity is increasing among core Republican coalitions, and that has brought a narrowing of the gap in party identification. He predicts a final gap of 3-5 points. McCain has always run ahead of party ID, and they see this as a big plus. He also sees Obama’s numbers dropping in battleground states, and thinks Obama will have a tough time getting to 50%.

    Turnout models show a big response from Republicans as well as Democrats. He thinks this will be closer to 2004 than 2000, and it may improve even more over the weekend. McInturff says that this will be a close election, but that McCain is very much in it.

    On the GOTV efforts, they say that they have spent more money on turnout in the past two months than any other election. The RNC’s ability to raise money has given the GOP parity on GOTV and in advertising. Their turnout efforts grow week-on-week, and may be the most underreported aspect of the campaign. The microtargeting, VOIP efforts, and analytical models continues to improve the GOTV efforts. They’ve made 5.3 million targeted calls and doorknocks in the past week, and 1.3 million yesterday, to persuadable voters, and 24 million to date. That’s a major improvement over 2004 and 2006, and they expect to make 17 million more in the next 72 hours.

    On absentee and early voting, they are seeing big increases in the number, but not much different in the party-ID gap. In Florida, McCain has an advantage in the total number of both. Nevada has about the same breakout as it did in 2004. Pennsylvania gave the GOP a lead on absentee ballots, 56-44, and younger voters are in roughly the same proportion as they had been before. New Democratic registrants this year actually make up a somewhat lower proportion of early voters in PA.

    They polled the viewers of the Obamamercial to see whether it convinced people to vote for him. They claim that the “less likelies” slightly outpolled the “more likelies”. Team McCain also noted that the money they spent on that infomercial would have bought a week’s worth of advertising in all of the battleground states.

    The McCain campaign says they will outspend Obama over the next 72 hours by $10 million. If so, that would be a remarkable change.

  55. McCain to Appear on “S.N.L.”
    By Elisabeth Bumiller
    Published: October 31, 2008

    HANOVERTON, Ohio: Senator John McCain will appear on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, his campaign said this morning, indicating that the Republican nominee was willing to accept the inherent risks in a comedy spot only three days before the election.

    The campaign did not say what McCain would do on the show, but he is almost certain to make only a brief appearance in the middle of what will be a marathon final push to Tuesday. McCain, who was on a daylong bus tour in Ohio on Friday, will be in Virginia, Pennsylvania and New York on Saturday, possibly in New Hampshire on Sunday and on an eight-state swing, ending very late in Arizona, on Monday.

  56. Big Media has promulgated the big lie. In doing so, they have betrayed the American People and our democracy. Only a fool would rely on them in the future, for the vital information we need to lead our lives. It is counterproductive to listen to a liar.

    That said, I have been trying for a year to understand the full range of their motivations. I have identified half a dozen factors which seem to make sense, but there was one that caught my eye recently that seemed to make more sense than others if it is true.

    It suggests a business motivation that goes beyond the common explanations of ratings. The claim was that Bambi has sent signals to them that if he becomes president he will save their business, by allocating public monies to help them survive, curtailing competition from the internet, invoking the fairness doctrine against their competitors including talk radio.

    If that is true, the American People need to be aware of it. They need to evaluate big media favoritism toward bambi in light of that self interest, and unholy deal. It goes beyond the Malone article. And if it is indeed true, the American People need to reject what big media is telling us for that very reason. When truth is tainted by self interest it ceases to be truth.

    For the life of me I cannot recall where I saw that article. I may be reading more into it than was actually there, but it is imporatant. Do you recall where it may have appeared? It may have been here in Big Pink, or it may have been elsewhere. Can you tell me where to find it if you know?

  57. With the polls tightening, I would think it is just about time for Obama and his thugs to start throwing dirt, temper tantrums, the race card x 100, and basically lying, cheating, blowing up the economy, et al…to get him in on Tuesday.

  58. Rush going on now about how you never hear anything about Obama’s grandmother and her health since Obama flew to Hawaii and the Governor sealed his birth records.

  59. HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!

    Has anybody seen Celsea, could a threat against her be what nObama has held over Hill and Bill’s head. For I believe that I know Hillary’s heart well enough to know that she would have never hurt us by shilling for nObama after we stuck with her through thick and thin. The Republicans are asking what has nObma promised her, and I tell everyone of them that there would be NOTHING that nObama could promise Hillary that would make her go against her beliefs, and that she could even have helped the party without shilling for HIM, but there has to be a BIG threat somewhere. I just can not get the image out of my mind of 5 big huge guys hustling her down the asile to the microphone during the convention to GIVE the nomination to nObama. Was Charles Rangel not the one to Hillary’s right, who were the others? Is there a photo of them hustling her down the asile?

  72. PUMA’s will roar…

    (excerpt)

    AP Is Shocked: Undecided Voters Are PUMAs, And They Don’t Like Barry

    patriotroom.com/?p=3614

    One in seven, or 14 percent, can’t decide or back a candidate but might switch, according to an Associated Press-Yahoo! News poll of likely voters released Friday.

    Who are they? They look a lot like the voters who’ve already locked onto a candidate, though they’re more likely to be white and less likely to be liberal. And they disproportionately backed Hillary Rodham Clinton’s failed run for the Democratic nomination.

    And there you have it. The PUMAs are not some little fringe group of angry women. They are at least 14% of the electorate, but more importantly, they, as undecideds, are the ones who will decide the election. Some think they will nearly all break for McCain. Maybe Obama should have treated his Sweeties a little better when he had the chance.

    Here’s how AP describes these folks.

    Even so, persuadable voters could be especially fertile hunting ground for McCain in the closing days of a contest in which most polls show him trailing.

    These people trust Obama less than decided voters do to handle the economy, the Iraq war and terrorism. They are less accepting that the Illinois senator has enough experience to be president. And by a 17 percentage-point spread, more see Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin favorably than unfavorably, unlike the narrow majority of voters already backing a candidate who dislike her.

    Huh. They love Sarah? The AP seems surprised. Sounds to me like with only 4 days before the election, the MSM is looking for a way to explain an impending McCain victory.

    And so the most famous PUMA of the day, who explains to the AP what they already knew, but chose to ignore, is Chris Markle.

    Half are independents, more than double their proportion among decided voters. But, as with decided voters, more persuadables are Democrats than Republicans. Four in 10 supported Clinton’s candidacy this spring.

    “She got cheated, I thought,” said Chris Markle, 25, who’s from Schenectady, N.Y., and now leans toward McCain. “I’m kind of upset about that.”

    I’m thinking the AP is about to learn just how loud the roar of a PUMA really is.

  73. Alcina – I think Reifenstahl died when she was past 100. There’s a good documentary on her, very long doc, but even in her 90s, she was doing undersea photography and filming.

    yes, the original femme-nazi!

  74. I have to respectally disagree about Hillary being threatened. I don’t believe it for one minute. Well, not threatened with her life or Chelsea’s life. If that was the case, authorities should be called. How can her political life be threatened? It is the public who votes for her, not her party! She seemed much, much stronger during the primaries and doing Bill’s impeach. I think she said once during that time that she knew the Republicans wanted to bring them BOTH down. She said that she also believed in Bill’s presidency and thought that he was a good president.

    But at the end of the primaries, she just fell totally flat. To be a good leader, a person has to know how to deal better with threats. That is what I am liking more and more about Sarah Palin. She went against her party and prevailed and she speaks her mind regardless of what other people think (or her party) or what you or me may think. She is not afraid to speak out even with meaness that the media directs at her and her family. They seemed to be pretty close knit. That is what we need in a leader. She is said to be a reformer. That remains to be seen. It would be good if Hillary was one too.

  76. JanH, yes and I so hope I will have pictures. We took some great ones at Palin’s rally in The Villages, used little Piper’s image on one of my protest posters. I do not know how to post jpgs here, however.
    I emailed Admin a jpg of the poster I will use at the rally tomorrow. So, good to see the PUMA article above, I knew when the bots were calling us all manner of dispicable names the last two being the ‘r’ words that they would rue the day…the Republicans got a kick of of one name they called us – Republican, and the last one was Racist.
    FYI, I give up on justmeinmtdora, Norma, and Lin67. If they post here, they can go to johnmccaindotcom and look at the calendar events on Nov 1st and print out tickets.
    Right now I am a guest at tomorrow’s rally, but may be called upon to be a worker.

  77. independent2008 : I belive in free speech and you certainly have a right to an opinion but I also belive one should know facts from conjecture.None of us know anything about Hillary except what we see and hear.Trust is one of the key ingredients of when we support a candidate based on their words and actions.Did you by any chance log on the wrong web sight? On Hil44 we are all believers and we cannot allow our goal to be deterred by the likes of the DNC the MSM and The Walking Eagle aka The Fence Post Turtle aka Baravk Hussein Obama.

    By ABM90 No offense to any one but I am ready to start campaigning for anytime she gives the word

  78. Sorry to post so many times, but am excited as hE!!.

    I am so busy making my own posters for tomorrow, I think I hit upon a winner, nObama the PIG!

    I will read as time allows, you all are providing so much interesting stuff I can’t stay away. Will post tomorrow after the event. I hope I get their autographs.

  79. Q from Independent:
    How can her political life be threatened? It is the public who votes for her, not her party!
    Ans: The answer to this is elemental.
    A politician without a party has no career. The public can’t vote for her if she is never again placed on a ballot.
    ————
    Independent: “But at the end of the primaries, she just fell totally flat.”
    — No, quite the opposite. This is most definitely untrue and you need to familiarize yourself with the last primary elections. She went out in a blaze of glory and would be the Dem nominee right now if the DNC had not decided to GIVE the nomination to the Fraud. Your statement is a false talking point used by Obama’s people sent to try to demoralize Hillary supporters.
    ———–
    Independent: “…Sarah Palin. She went against her party and prevailed and she speaks her mind regardless of what other people think (or her party) or what you or me may think.”
    — Sarah Palin has the Republican National Party behind her. The Democratic Party turned against Hillary. If the RNC threw Palin out of the race, she’d be in the same position as Hillary, and there would be nothing she could do about it.

  80. ShortTermer

    Schummer was also there. I described on big pink how he was almost pushing her down that aisle, was so close behind her she could not stand up straight, and at the microphone took her arm, it appeared, to keep her from falling or fainting. I did not realize there were 5 there.

  81. ABM90,

    I know that you are a strong supporter of Hillary’s. None of us know facts from conjecture and I am not claiming that. The “I know/or think Hillary is being threatened or Chelsear being threatened is just as pure conjecture as I thinking that her “life” at least is not being threatened or there would be criminal chargges.

    I do believe in her as senator but I am not as positive as president A person can mean well and just fall flat and maybe they could find out the job was not what they expected. I was glad that she as a first lady did something no previous first lady has done before and ran for senate office. Basically the president and his family just fades away after leaving office.

    But basically since she definitely isn’t #44, I am now a more Down With Obama person. I never take my eye of that prize. It would be a verrrry sweet victory if McCain wins!

    I do think that Hillary was treated unfairly and there was a lot of sexism. But a person has to take a stand against it. That’s why things are like they are. The leaders have to take a stand, not just their supporters. I like a reformer.

  82. Throw all the polls out. Campaign internal polling tells the real story. The proof is in where canidates are campaigning and spending their money. Obama now advertising heavily in CA and Washington and Minnesota (states he is supposedly way ahead in) so why waste money there??? Obama campaigning in Iowa again another state is is suppose to be way up. McCain and Palin still concentrating on PA and OH.

  83. grape

    there have been some very obvious bot talking points noted on this blog. i must ignore, or suffer the hand-slap of fellow 44’s. thanks for your input.

    we are not demoralized. we are not behind. bho’s electoral sweep is an illusion. we will win 11/04/08.

    Why would Hillary even want to be part of such a corrupt party that treated her badly. I definitley wouldn’t have. There are politicans that left there party because they didn’t like what was going on. Good for them!

    I am very familiar with the last primaries (think you very much). When I said at the end of the primaries, she fell totally flat. I didn’t mean by her many victories at that time. I meant her fighting spirit fell flat. I think she gave up too quickly. Before then she was shrilling about taking the fight to Denver aka Ted Kennedy. I was hoping for that. Would have more respect if she had done so.

    As for Palin, reforming agains her own party. I am talking about when she was governor and took on the establishment. She even defeated a “popular” man (I think). I am sure she ruffled many of the republican feathers just like she is ruffling some of the republicans now who wants to see her out. Be she prevails! Just ignore them.

  85. Obama advertising in CA? Hmmm, wonde if NJ will be contested? The usual line of b.s. is that NJ is solid blue, “Nothing to look at here folks, move along.”

    I want a complete Obamimplosion.

    CA: McCain
    NJ: McCain

    I’ll trade those two for Montana and Wyoming.

    CA is probably part of the Western ad buy. The advertising package may include all the western states. BO is ahead in CA, but he has money to burn, and CA may just be included in the package.

  88. OK, I think we have a bot here. And a naive one at that.
    Isolate him and keep the repartee among ourselves. As a last resort we can go to the other place where we worked on the tribute — just say “going over to Basil’s” but never list the url for that site

  89. LOL…how I hate the word “shrilling.” The only one who has shrilled his way throughout this whole process is the one and thank god only Obama. Honestly, his feminine side comes out way tooooooooo much!

  90. No bot here. Anyone who disagree isn’t a bot. Seems that is used to just shut down communication.

    But thanks Jan. I do respect your opinion. We just see things differently on how things went down. I don’t have a problem with that, but apparently there are some that does. Oh well.

    I never try to shut down someone else’s opinion, even when I disagree with them.

  91. I keep thinking of all the money he spent in OH and PA in the primaries and it worked against him. They got sick of looking at him, hearing him, hearing about him. The only way the Fraud can get elected is by cheating — he’s proved it over and over and over ad nauseum.

  92. Hillary won the popular vote and but for the undemocratic caucus’ , the unholy trinity of Dean, Pelosi, and Reid, and the race baiting of Clyburn would be the next POTIUS….she came out like a true stateswoman and is a Bob Graham said here in Fla. , the most powerful woman in the world…bless her , Bill and Chelsea.

  94. independent2008: Your comparison between Hillary and Sarah show a lack of what constitutes a viable experienced patriot politically tested and willing to give her all to come back another day and fight for her country and her supporters,THE PEOPLE. Sarah was drafted into this race in order to garner the women’s vote.A desparation move by the RNC to plug the hole in their campaign against BO.Stop a minute and recall how won every debate in spite of the fix against her.She cleaned all of the male clocks like no other person or woman has ever done.She was the only one left standing until the DNC stole her votes and handed them to their chosen one.Sarah could not have gotten by anyone had she bee in Hillary’s shoes.Apples and oranges are usually an out for the mis informed or a BOTKIN.

    By ABM90.This old dog can still hunt and smell a phoney.

  95. independent2008,

    I agree with you. A leader has to stand up for what she believes in. The fact that Hillary became a leader during the primary for so many of us was because she stood up against her corrupt party. However, she did a 180 degree after the convention. She is no longer a leader to me, just the same guilty by participation as the rest of the Dimocrats. If she did this 180 degree because her belief that BHO is good for the country, then I won’t follow her on that. If she did this 180 degree to save her own career rather than because of her belief, then she is no longer a leader. Either way, she does not get a pass for her behavior. The only reason I still check this site daily is not that I still support Hillary, it’s that I share the desire as many here to see BHO defeated.

  96. ABM90: You’re right! And, the “redistribution” of primary votes foreshadowed their ultimate goals. 😉

    Here we go again, the trashing of Hillary on this website.
    ===========================================
    Actually, it strengthens the bonds that true his44 warriors have with one another — attacks that have kept us all the stronger and all the better informed all this time. We’ve been through worse bashings than this. THese are amateurs.

  98. No matter what happens on Tuesday, Hillary comes out of this in a very well respected position. She didn’t cheat, lie, or steal her way to the nomination like Obama did. She didn’t sell her soul like Obama, Pelosi, Kerry et al continue to do ad nauseum. In other words, she can look at herself in the mirror and believe that she did the best she could under very trying circumstances. I have lost all respect for the rest of the DNC.

  99. Good news from Pennsylvania!

    Rendell says race is closer than polls indicate

    Gov. Ed Rendell Friday said the presidential race between Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain is “closer than the polls indicate.” Urging people to get out and vote in Tuesday’s general election, Rendell said Obama does not have a double-digit lead in Pennsylvania and he told voters to take an umbrella and dress warmly to withstand the weather.

    “Stay in that line and make sure you vote,” Rendell told about 50 people at Wilkes University. “I’ve seen polls that have the race as close as four points.”

    Rendell also said the addition of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to the Republican ticket has “enthused” the campaign.
    “She has drawn thousands of people to every event she has appeared at,” Rendell said.
    Read the whole story in Saturday’s The Times Leader.

    Amen lindax!! Many hugs to ya!! (((( lindayx ))))) : – ) I can’t believe anyone here who disagrees is automatically called an omabot. That is exactly what Obama’s bots try to do. Trash, ridicule, and try to quiet anyone who has a different opinion. I have not personally trashed anyone here by calling them an Obama supporter. I am above that.

    I call it as it is. No pass from me either.

    I, too, just basically visit this site because the one thing that we DO have in common is to have Obama defeated and for he and Michelle to be shipped back to Chicago.

  101. There is no point in comparing Palin with Hillary at this point. Palin with Hillary’s years of experience will be as formidable (at least that is my hope). I do commend McCain for going out on a limb with this risky choice — yea one could argue she was drafted to garner women’s votes (or rally the base) — I personally don’t care, there is always an ulterior motive in politics which is to get votes. To me she is no different from a lesser known male governor and there would not be all the hoopla if McCain had picked a male. That double standard should frustrate a lot of women. The bottom line for me is Palin is good for democracy as we build that critical mass of women of all persuasion in the political landscape. So far her political instincts are much better than Hillary’s and with a few years of experience in pubic policy, she will be a force to reckon with for the Democrats.

    Wow! May hugs to ya, pm317!!!

    I have the same thoughts myself. I think that Palin will be as formidable was some more years of experience. For a matter of fact, it would be good if she and Hillary could work together. Bill seems to like Todd. Both men are married to political women and it doesn’t seem to upset their manhood at all. I don’t care for the reason that McCain picked her either. She did energize the Republicans. There is always some type of ulterior motive for picking a vp regardless of who the presidential nominee is. I don’t think that it was a desperate pick, just a smart one.

    She is just a lesser know candidate, just like any other man could be a lesser known candidate as well. The double standard that no one didn’t know of her is ridiculous. If no one knew of her, then how did you get selected!!!

    I think that Palin will be a force to be reckon with for the Democrats. I am looking forward to her giving the Democrats a huge migraine for years to come!!!

    ….

    I have to agree with you on the instinctive part….maybe because she is still fresh and young and not faced the type of challenges Hillary has. The only thing I wanted more from Hillary was more risk taking and not palying it safe…this is where Palin is more noticeable…perhaps because she can do it this time around.

  104. I don’t know what went down with Hillary or why she made the decisions she did, so I’m not going to speculate about the risk-taking. None of us know the whole picture. We don’t know the pressures and we don’t know what the last straw was. I too wish Hillary had gone further and I’m not too happy with her supporting Obama even if it is on the surface. But I’m not going to judge her without all the facts, nor am I going to question whether she would be a good leader. I personally think she would be a wonderful leader.jmo

  105. What is very satisfying to me personally is that Palin is the correct punishment for the Dem party and all the women who supported Obama and backstabbed Hillary. If ever we get a second chance with Hillary, I will be supporting Hillary but right now I am happy cheering for Palin because she is my ticket, if you will to defeating the biggest fraud there is. And she has some raw instincts that are not there in many politicians — just saw her give a perfectly well rounded speech without a teleprompter. Right now she lacks experience on the national political scene but that can be gained in a year or two. She is the perfect and natural antidote to Obama propelled purely by people’s choice (with some help from McCain). Obama is a marketing phenomenon but she is all natural and authentic and she is a woman!

  106. yea one could argue she was drafted to garner women’s votes (or rally the base)
    ======
    I’m not sure it was though. I have heard 2 different things, one was about McCain’s campaign manager saw her on a Charlie Rose show on PBS, she was debating someone, and she caught his attention, and he called McCain. And that is when she was first put on the list of possible contenders. And I think they said that was Feb. It actually may have been before McCain even had the nomination. And then when McCain met her at some function in Washington, Cindy was with him, she said they hit it off right away, she also said he didn’t say anything, but she knew he was going to pick Palin. And I think this was before June, I think it was before anyone knew what the outcome would be, And I think I was watching Cindy’s interview with Greta where she said this. I would need to research to know for sure on the time line, but This would show that Palin was not a last minute decision based on Hillary not getting VP pick, and was on the list and at the top of it before it was decided between BO and Hillary. Unless they are lying. But Cindy doesn’t strike me as a liar. She seemed proud of herself that she knew what her husband was thinking way back then. I think its classic McCain. On conservative lists she was always on the list, she just wasn’t on the media’s list, so that is one reason they reacted the way they did and made the accusation that it was only because she is a woman. That seems sexist to me. I think he still would have picked her even if they didn’t cheat Hillary like they did. But like I said, that is so classic McCain. I think the other reason he picked her was because he knew she would energize the base, and he needed someone to pull in the conservatives.

    birdgal: the article I referred to took the business analyis a step beyond malone. I think there is some merit to what Malone says–the editors wanting to hang on until retirement. But the notion that there is some loose understanding in place whereby bambi would save their industry stands a better than even chance of being true in my opinion. My dad was a good poker player and he used to say trust all men but cut the cards. In the case of bambi it would be wise to demand a new deck.

I can’t go tomorrow, we are leaving to check out our next station(military family.) House hunting. I would have loved to have gone though, thanks for the offer.

    Rush going on now about how you never hear anything about Obama’s grandmother and her health since Obama flew to Hawaii and the Governor sealed his birth records.
    =====
    You know I never thought about it before, but he definitely has a point there. I thougth she was on her sick bed, of course it did take him 3 days from announcing to actually going there. A**hole. He’s confirming he doesn’t even meet the constitution’s criteria to run for POTUS. This if for no other is why he must be defeated.

  110. For most of the last twenty months, I have kept an open, objective assessment on Obama but this last month I just have been shattered.
    I have not disliked anybody as much as I despise
    obama. I even find Bush more tolerable than BO and that is saying something.

    =======
    OMG MP me too. Bush lost me with the war, I think he handled it poorly, and took too long to realize he was on the wrong track, and there were some lives lost that didn’t need to be. We’re a military family, and hubby was in a very secretive job during the early years of the war, and of course he couldn’t tell me anything, but he did say trust me Linda, this the right thing to do so I wasn’t against so much at the begining, but then I learned other things that led me to believe there were some leadership problems and poor execution of the war. Nothing secret, he didn’t break any laws, just an inside perspective. Hubby was a Clinton and Gore supporter though, grew up in an Cleveland democrat home, and his mother is barely talking to him. She’s an FDR dem. This is the first time I’ve voted. Although I always supported Clintons, I always lived in an area where my vote really didn’t matter, I was looking forward to voting for Hillary in Florida. But we voted for McCain, not only because of BO did to Hillary and because he’s a socialist, marxist who probably even isn’t a US citizen, but because McCain was right on the surge, and he saved lives by not giving up and pushing the surge, maybe even my husbands, and BO voted to cut off their funding while they were still in a war zone, even Biden said that would cost lives, and because we believe Sarah will speak for special needs, something close and dear to our hearts. And like you I just can’t even stand to look at BO anymore.

  111. It is very troubling to see how little some people understand about the importance of party unity and that real tried and proved political figures are far smarter than their critics.It takes guts,strength,inteligence and a solid understanding of the of the system.Wether Obama wins or loses,Hillary will still be standing and highly respected by bothsides of the aisle and the vast majority of the American people.She won the primaries and had more votes than the her rivals.The Caucases were rigged for BO and as we now know Acorn has been at work for many years and got him into Chicago politics and has paved the way with fraud deception and downright bribery.Hillary is our homegrown leader and is being true to our country an its peopleWhat has BO done to be even considered as leader and true citizen of this country.
    Cry on you poor misguided light weights and watch her and learn a thing or two about integrity and personal sacrifice from the smartest most honorable woman ever to bless this country.

    -only half a person in the DNC/RBC/Re-Po-Bo world
    -and another other insult you want to hurl my way

    But I am strong, I am woman, there are 14% [of 18million Dem votes] of us who are not voting for
    nObama, and I wager that pretty much all of us are voting for McPalin! And to think, without McCain having anyone calling him the Messiah, without fake Greek Temple columns, without millions and millions wasted on a loser campaign that could have fitted nicely in the pocketbooks of those that nObama want to give a welfare check to OUT OF MY POCKET, without cheating/fraud, and without an EGO the size of the state of Texas – no, er, the size of Alaska…..and without BEATING UP ON GIRLS!

    So take that and stick it up where the sun does not shine…and keep listening to the chant CHANGE CHANGE CHANGE that nObama whispers but never explains……hell, nObama has not even stopped sh!tting green yet he is so naive and inexperienced!

  114. As someone who has grown fond of Sarah, I loved her rally today. She was on fire, giving a talk without any noticeable look at any notes.

    She said, “It isn’t negative campaigning to talk abut someone’s experience and record” and proceeded to do that. Obama on spreading the wealth and taxes and how we were all fooled till Joe the Plumber got O to say what he really means to do.

    It was a tour de force.

  115. Thanks admin, I missed a lot during the last two weeks of the general, still trying to sway votes toward a split ticket. GOTV was all I thought about for weeks.
