The Media’s Creation Unravels: Why Obama Should Drop Out

The essay below was written by Mary Jo Kopechne, PhD, and Bud White.

Sen Obama should drop out of the race. Having just seen the new attack ad that the GOP is showing in NC — condemning the state’s Democratic leadership for backing Obama, replete with Rev Wright cursing America — it is clear that Senator Obama is detrimental to the Democratic brand nationwide. As Jerome Armstrong wrote nearly one month ago, “That’s fall-out from Wright, not against just Obama, but also Clinton, and most likely against the Democratic Party in general. It’s branding of Democrats Obama, and Clinton, as anti-American.”

Obama earned his lead early on, prior to being vetted. After he lost Texas and Ohio, the Wright videos appeared, shocking the nation. Slowly, information about his relationship to Rezko, and his affiliation with William Ayers have also entered the mainstream.

Obama’s negatives have risen dramatically as Americans have gotten to know Obama, but not because of anything Hillary is alleged to have said about him, contrary to what the Times would have you believe.

As Rasmussen reports, “Obama’s favorable ratings have also fallen below the 50% mark since the world learned of his former Pastor.”

He should quit while he’s ahead, so to speak, and give the Party a chance to win the General Election.

After the New York Times endorsed Senator Clinton as the choice of their editorial board, they have consistently published specious and demeaning pieces about her. With friends like these, who needs enemies? It wasn’t any specific attack by Hillary which the Times or anyone else can point to; it’s the sudden unraveling of the fantasy named Obama.

The New Yorker was so upset at debate moderators George Stephanopoulos and Charlie Gibson that they ran two articles this week denouncing the debate, going so far as to praise the Post’s Shales’ description of the debate as “despicable” without mentioning that it’s the same Washington Post that ran an article last year about Hillary’s cleavage.

We know who has truly been despicable: The pillars of the liberal establishment are lashing out at Hillary, at the debate moderators, and at the newest boogie man, poor white men, because Americans are finally learning the truth about their vacuous creation. It’s not the questions in the debate that are the problem; it’s the fact he cannot answer tough questions.

Barack Obama’s picture appeared on the front page of the Times the day Hillary Clinton won the Pennsylvania primary. That in itself goes a long way to explaining the lead editorial, “The Low Road to Victory.”

In fact, the Times is perpetuating the myth that Obama and the rest of the media are spinning: Clinton is negative, on the attack against Obama, and that she is more negative than Obama.

Obama demeans her character, lies about her policies, but the media says she is negative. There is not a negative trick in the book that Obama has failed to use. He unfairly attacked her health care plan. He has ridiculed her at a more personal level. He outspent her 4 to 1 or even 5 to 1 (and not 2 to 1). Still, he could not prevail. If Senator Clinton is focusing on the weaknesses of Obama’s candidacy, it’s because the media have failed to do their job. If you spend some time on the message boards of the New Progressive Sexists you’ll see where the negativity is coming from – the Obama campaign.

The Times piece was particularly bad because only days earlier they reported on Obama’s increasingly negative attacks against Hillary, “In Push Before Vote, Obama Sharpens Tone,” on April 21st. (Talk about selective memory.)

It is part of the ongoing sexism and misogyny in this primary that Hillary Clinton gets blamed for negativity. It’s the same old game: If a man makes a comment, then he’s being strong and powerful but, if a woman makes a similar statement, she’s being negative. (See Shakesville’s running list of sexist comments made about Hillary. She’s counted 75 so far).

In fact, in response to Obama’s Rovian tactics, the Clinton campaign sent around a quiz with negative statements about Hillary. All twelve came from the Obama campaign or Obama himself.

Negativity?

  • Who said Hillary Clinton is “literally willing to do anything to win”
  • Who said Hillary Clinton is attempting to “deceive the American people”
  • Who claimed Hillary Clinton has a secret 20-year plan to become president
  • Who called Hillary Clinton a calculating, poll-tested, divisive figure
  • Who called Hillary Clinton “one of the most secretive politicians in America”
  • Who said Hillary Clinton’s campaign is “playing politics with war”
  • Who said John McCain is seen as more honest and trustworthy than Hillary Clinton
  • Who called Hillary Clinton dishonest
  • Who referred to Hillary Clinton as “a monster”
  • Who said Hillary Clinton is “not being straight with the American people”
  • Who said of Hillary, “The American people are not going to elect a president that they do not trust”
  • Who claimed Hillary Clinton “consistently” and “deliberately” misleads the American people

Obama has been shielded by his benefactors for over a year. His campaign has gotten away with these relentless attacks against Hillary, yet she is being accused of taking the low road. Americans are finally having their questions answered about Obama’s questionable friends, and Americans are turning off to this media-hyped creation.

One hopes the superdelegates are paying attention to Obama’s certain unraveling.

    Mr obama should drop out of the race – I find him weak, arrogant and completely unfit to be president. Does he really believe he can be president? He sure is delusional! Can anybody imagine him and his ugly wife in the WH? lol Can anybody imagine michelle obama as first lady? God, what a nighmare!

  • B-Rob

    Hey, people! I have to run. This has been REAL interesting! You folks calling for Obama to drop out reminds me of the “federales” scene from “Treasure of the Sierra Madre”. Bogart was high on the hill, holding off the Mexican banditos. One of them comes up waiving a flag saying

    “Hey, fella! Come on down. We no gonna hurt you, we the federales.”

    “If you’re the federales, show me your badges.”

    “Badges! Badges! We ain’t got no badges! We don’t need no stinkin’ badges!”

    * * * * *

    First it was Hillary offering him the Number 2 slot when he was leading. Now it is you folks claiming he should drop out when he is even closer to the crown than when you unsuccessfully offered him the Number 2 slot. See a pattern?

    Hillary needed to win Pennsylvania 60%/40% to stay in this game. Didn’t happen . . . you folks were so demoralized, you were rounding a 9.2% win UP to 10% W.t.f.? Now according to another calculation I saw, she will need to win out at about a 60% clip when more than half the state remaining are Obama states . . . you know . . . educated, young . . . think “Friends” in syndication as opposed to “The Golden Girls.”

    Face facts, people . . . Hillary is done. Not enough money, negatives too high, needs a Florida and Michigan miracle that the party cannot afford to gove her, and unfriendly demographic terrain going out. Obama won because he was the better candidate with the better campaign at a better time.
    She fought the good fight. But it is now nothing more than a waste of money, a waste of energy and a waste of time.

    Will he win? Maybe yes, maybe no; he is still a Black man in America who some percentage of people (many of them on this board) simply won’t vote for due to their own racism. That will decrease his odds right there.

    But I tell you what he will do that Hillary wouldn’t or couldn’t: he will run a 50 state campaign, raise money galore for Dems across the country, work his ass off and give the old man a run for his money.

    Hillary is simply not liked or trusted enough nationally to be competitive in the general election. Which is why Obama, even being a possibly Muslim Black man with a crazy Christian pastor, and not Hillary, has gotten all those endorsements from Red State senators, governors, and congressment. It’s not all her fault, but some of it is. McCain knows that, Obama knows that, and you all know it to. Take care! Nice jousting!

    I support Hillary 100 percent, but this is still a CONTEST. It’s no more time for Obama to drop out than it is for Senator Clinton to give it up.

    For the first time in a long while, the later primaries are counting in a decision about our future. Let them have their voice too.

    • http://thehorizontalworld.blogspot.com/ Mary Jo Kopechne

      It’s only a contest when you have two viable candidates. Obama is not viable. He is a cypher holding a place for John McCain. The people who support him have not done their homework.

      This primary is no longer about liking one candidate more than the other. That luxury was lost once we began to see the little man behind the curtain. Obama is a fraud.

      • Nicole

        Mary Jo, you’ve pegged him/and this ridiculous farce called the Hope/Change Campaign perfectly!

  • http://www.hyscience.com Richard

    As a conservative blogger I’ve been tough on the Clintons over the past years, and especially Hillary. I’ve found her too far left for my tastes, and too loose with the truth sometimes. However, from the vantage point of an uninvolved, non-voting participant(i.e. Democratic primary) – in other words, not having a dog in this hunt, I believe that my opinion is not clouded by emotion and based on observable facts.

    This having been said, I find myself actually cheering for Hillary, while being astonished by the lack of scrutiny of Obama by the MSM. It’s as though they’ve abandoned all pretense of objective journalism and signed on to the “Obama est messiah” cult. And while I find both Hillary and Obama to be socialists with a touch of Marxism (I did say they both are too far left for my tastes), if it came to pass that Hillary won the Dems’ nomination and went on to eventually beat McCain (IMHO a very big IF), I don’t see it as the potential disaster for America that would occur should Obama win the presidency. The America Obama thinks he knows, and the America he sees through eyes jaundiced by hate, is not the real America.

    Unquestionably, to all but the confused and emotionally involved, Obama is the most far left politician in the Senate, is clearly a Marxist, and dangerous for America. What we know and are learning about his past, his present, and his plans, should scare the hell out of every American, regardless of their political persuasion. This guy is dangerous, and if you’re not a MoveOn.org kind of person, you have no business even entertaining the possibility of voting for him. It has nothing to do with racism, and every thing to do with common sense.

    As for Hillary, I like her spunk, and I see her willing to move to the center, and mean it. I’ll vote for McCain instead of her (albeit I’m not exactly enthusiastic about him either), but I can believe that she loves America and isn’t carrying the baggage of being a hard-core charter enthusiast of Karl Marx. Those 20 years Obama spent in Wright’s pews should send a clear message to all of us about his judgement, as should the people he considers to be closest to him. Indeed, a man should be known by the company he keeps.

    • Andy

      Thank you for your comment Richard. I appreciate your honesty and respect what you wrote.
      I agree also that an Obama presidency would be a disaster and a potential danger.

    • PMS

      Hi, Richard. Welcome to the Center (or at least, just left of Center).

      I enjoyed your post, and can certainly appreciate your perspective, but I think you are mistaken about how “left” Obama is. He is a Chameleon. We really don’t know where he stands. He is “far left” only in that it begins to merge with “far right”. Marxist? Well, it depends on how you define it. He isn’t a socialist (Hillary probably comes closer to that tag, in the European sense… just look at her tax returns… they give their money away AND pay high taxes).

      The teaching at Trinity UCC probably gives the best clue as to who he is, and I don’t mean the Wright spews, but the supporting message.

      P.S. Why do I consider a “socialist” politician a Centrist? For the same reasons I consider FDR to have been a Centrist. Once again, the balance of wealth in our nation is out-of-balance. The far right and the far left have different (and equally destructive) answers to that reality. The Centrist sees a better, braver way, to maintain the society relatively intact.

      I believe McCain to be a Centrist as well, but bereft of any ideas. Which is why I can vote for him over the radical Obama. He could be a place-holder pending the prescriptive.

      Welcome to NQ (I am presumptive in offering the welcome, as I’m just a frequent visitor), but watch what you step in. There’s lots of Cheetohshit underfoot, and you don’t want to track it around your own house.

      “Obama is the most far left politician in the Senate, is clearly a Marxist, and dangerous for America. What we know and are learning about his past, his present, and his plans, should scare the hell out of every American, regardless of their political persuasion.

      Pay attention trolls, this is exactly the kind of stuff that Obama will be hit with in the GE.

      It’s going to relentless and well-crafted. It will look like art films. They are collecting footage of the 1960′s that many of you don’t even know about. Malcolm X’s speeches alone are a gold mine. And we haven’t even gotten around to Stokely Carmichael, Huey Newton or H. Rap Brown who is in prison right now. And then there is the white left-wing nutjob brigade: Mark Rudd, Ayers, Dohrn. all of the usual suspects. Add to that the violent inner city black-on-black crime, which hit a fever pitch this past weekend in Obama’s own city of Chicago.

      The ads write themselves. And don’t be surprised if they even play the OJ card. I heard OJ’s angling for a spot on Trump’s next Celebrity Apprentice to be aired in the fall. At this rate, they might not even need the Rev Wright stuff. That will just be a post script.

      Uppity has been trying to school you pathetic little trolls but you are just too dense to understand that MOST OF THE COUNTRY DOESN’T THINK LIKE YOU!!! You are a minority. A loud, vulgar, offensive one , but a minority, nonetheless. And you all should be horsewhipped for trying to ride the backs of a truly exploited minority who got caught up in the passion of ethnic pride.

  • http://thehorizontalworld.blogspot.com/ Mary Jo Kopechne

    Thanks all.
    I know they’re scared. I came home from work to find my Hillary yard sign stolen. That’s three. As if stealing a yard sign can help their little guru.

    Obama should drop out of the race for any number of reasons: He cannot win the GE. He’s divided the party with his false pretense of “hope” and “change.”

    But most pressing on my mind, and the minds of millions, is that he is DANGEROUSLY inexperienced and disconnected from the real world, but in the US and outside.

    Obama needs to drop out so the Democratic Party can move ahead and put Clinton in office. Nothing Obama or his campaign or his little trollies have to say changes the facts. The man won votes before people knew he was a fraud and at the caucuses through intimidation.

    Obama is a fraud. His followers are deluded. It’s sad.

    • TeakWoodKite

        • Cath

          I really need some examples of how Obama is a sexist. We keep throwing around that term here, but I’d like some concrete examples to back it up. I won’t take it on faith. Give me two or three good ones, based on fact. That is all I ask.

          • PMS

            Hi Cath.

            I’ll try and help, but I’m not a good authority. I’m a full-blooded male.

            I believe that ALL human beings were created equally and deserve the same rights and respect. I first began to wonder about Obama’s “sexism” during the NH debate. His “you’re likable enough, Hillary” comment, while not making eye contact (a way of dismissing the person you are addressing) echoed what I’ve heard from sexist managers in my Corporate and Public career.

            Obama’s snubbing Hillary at the State of the Union address (it was real, watch the vids), his “brushing off” mime after the debate (to me, the “finger was inconclusive, but realistic), his twisting of his mother and grandmother’s actions to support a narrative of his life that appears false, all point to a man who has some real issues with women. It is NOT uncommon for men such as these to marry domineering women, as Michelle shows every sign of being… it feeds their anger while reinforcing their insecurities.

            There are almost too many examples to list, but those high-profile examples I’ve listed define a pattern.

              You need to catch CNN today for a rerun of the pig Wilder making cracks about women and Hillary in particular, and why they shouldn’t run. He actually said Black men can’t argue with white women, women are too emtional and Hillary needs to run as a candidate not a woman. Even JAMAL jumped on his spiel. Obama lost another couple of million off that pig.

          ok B-rob..tell me ..why were only Fla and Mi given sanctions and not SC and Nevada who broke the rules as well??????????!

          and why did Dean and Brazile change the rules that said only 1/2 of the delegates would be stripped?????????..after all that is what the rules state..and yet SC did the same thing and didn’t lose their delegates..and to further that point..SC didn’t get rid of Diebold voting machines ..but the bill that changed the Fla primary was a bill that banned the DRE voting machines in the 15 big counties in Fla that could not be audited in any way..and it mandated VOTER VERIFIED PAPER BALLOTS.. that was the bill in Florida that the Fl Republican majority in the fla legislature attached the amendment to to change the date of the primary

          since Sarasota had 18,000 votes dissapear in 2006 in Kathrine Harris’s county..there wasn’t a dem in our legislature that would not sign that bill..

          and we became the first state in the nation to ban the DRE voting machines for the 2008 presidential election..and yet we were punished..

          the dem party didn’t help us..not on the national level..this was done by the citizens of Fla who are damn sick and tired of having our elections stolen by republicans..and now it is the dems who are stealing it from us.

          If you don’t give a damn ablout the real facts than please don’t comment on what you know nothing about!!

          Oh and ps..my hubby and i paid for the audit in my large county in Fla after the 2006 election..and pssssssssssss..the state auditor sat there for two days talking to the SOE..and after two days he had to admit..there was no way to audit the DRE voting machines in my county..the Sequoia machines.

          Oh and ps.s.s…the 4 citizens who brought that bill to the floor of our state congress ..just recieved the highest award given by the Fla ACLU..and will be given that award mid May.

        b-rob..a re-vote was not offered it was a sham that was offered ..that only approx 100,000 people could participate..

        yes the Obama camp and dean and Brazile would only agree upon a re-vote that would scrap 1.7 + close to 1.8 million voters vote and only allow 100,000 people to participate in a re-vote..what a freaking joke ..you and your Obama are..and what dean has done now in Florida ..i don’t know if we will ever recoup from now..

        and we here in Fla worked our asses off and we would have taken this state by big margins in Nov..but now we will lose in a landslide..count on that!

  • sjl106

    LOL using old data isn’t making your point, yes Iowa is still standing strong with obama, but MO isn’t hell obama tied in MA with McCain. Here rajo a current list of polling from Survey USA, you know one of the most accurate polling companies out there. Go through the states since Rev. Wright and then his stereotyping “typical white people” to religious zealots, gun toting, bigots. obama is unelectable and now with the ads in NC and now WA state, obama needs to get out he is damaged goods.

  • Thrasyboulos

    Positive polls for Obama are utterly meaningless rubbish.

    The real test will come once/if he get the nomination. Then, the media and the Republicans and the stealth 527s will unload Rezko, Wright, Ayers, Auchi, his speech to the San Fran cadillac liberals, and whatever else is under the rocks.

    Lol!

    Why do you think the Obama leghumpers in the media are trashing Clinton 24/7? Answer: because they’ve got Obama and his enablers in their sights, and they realy really like what they see. ABC debate is a walk in the park, on Sunday, with the birds singing, compared to what they plan for Bambi.

    Watch.

        she won’t say, hey, i’ve already answered like eight questions then leave the press conference in a huff. she won’t say i won’t debate any more since they ask hard questions and they are only supposed to ask hard questions of my opponent. she won’t say she’s a new kind of politician then run a chicago style down and dirty campaign. she won’t disenfranchise two states then say they should vote for her anyway. she won’t say her supporters will vote for him but she’s not sure his supporters will vote for her. she won’t say she just now became proud of her country. she won’t say that america is mean and its soul must be healed by her wonderfulness. she won’t need a vacation in the middle of the campaign just when things are getting tough. she won’t tell a female reporter that her question might be answered (never was) depending on how well she behaves. she won’t need a day off after a humiliating loss. she won’t say ooh, campaigning is hard…. she won’t blame people for being old or white or typical or bitter or whatever if they don’t vote for her. she won’t flip the bird, twist the knife, hump the pulpit, brush off the shoulders and shoes, use words like hoodwink and bamboozle to hoodwink and bamboozle, wear a pink suit and pearls and pretty to be jackie o like michelle obama does, say that first ladies just give teas, say that a racist and anti-american pastor’s hate speech is ok because he grew up in the 60s, say that she barely knows rezko and ayers/dohrn (statements that are not only false, but provably so, demonstrating not only lying but stupidity). she won’t say americans are bitter and “cling” to guns and religion, then complain because only her snooty friends were supposed to know she said it. she won’t say she wouldn’t want her child to be “punished with a baby.”

        she will stand up to whatever trash is thrown her way, as she has done for 40 years. she will not flinch, run, hide, claim racism. she will not act like, and be, a total wuss.

        obama will, has, and does do all those things. and more, but i got tired of typing.

        bwana,

        I think your the one ensconced in the dream palace. The corporate media ‘unloads’ on Hillary Clinton 7 days a week and have for a decade and a half. She’s used to it and, as any trial lawyer will tell you, you gotta get all the bad stuff out right away. All of her ‘bad stuff’ is already out there (and its mostly Bill’s anyways).

        Obama? He’s a veritable buffet of bad stuff — the best kind of bad stuff if your a Republican. The “anti-American” kind of bad stuff. Oh, the story they will weave…and so much source material. They won’t even have to lie — not that they won’t, they are Rethugs after all.

        Why, why do the Democrats hate America? “America hating Democrats” is a registered trademark of the Republican National Committee.

            flyarm,

            what the DNC is doing with FL is despicable. Dean, Brazile, pelosi and Co. should be outcast from teh party as traitors: no state, no voter, no human being deserves to reated like that in what is supposed to be a democratic process (in the US !). But FL especially for its significance in every GE and more so after what happened in 2000. I find hard to understand how the party can be so blinded by Obama (or any candidate) to do this to the people of FL. It angers me enormously.

            As for MA, the DNC doesn’t understand the state; at all. It is not
            Kennedy-land; Deval Patrick is the first Dem. Gov. since Dukakis and people are very disenchanted with his administration so far; to say the least. HRC winning by more than 15 points despite Obama’s support of Kerrey, Kennedy & Deval Patrick was not by any strch of the imagination a “glitch”. Obama is losing MA to McCain
            for a reason…. The humiliation to the DNC of losing MA to a Rep. in the GE (!) will be devastating.

          And 60 out of 67 counties in Pennsylvania say you are full of shit. And that IS the only poll that matters. You are an asshole to believe that Bill Clinton is a detriment to the country.

          What an empty dog bowl you are.

        • street_parade

          B-Rob,
          Well if she can’t beat McCain then what does that say about your guy — who can’t beat her.

          Since your such a big fan of the polls, you’ve no doubt noticed how they are all over the place. Every primary, polls, polls, polls…he’s closing, she’ll win by 18, he’s ahead by 10 in California, he’s tied in Ohio and on and on and on. The only poll that matters? The elections.

          A couple of facts, among the adult population it is often not required that you be “likable” to get the job. The job of the President is NOT to be your BFF — it is to be the head of the executive branch of the government. This election is for President of the U.S. not President of the Senior class. Fact number 2 – Bill Clinton left office with the highest approval ratings of any modern President (68%) so I guess people are pretty okay with him. Even with his “drama”.

          I feel compelled to ask — how old are you?

    JUST HOT OFF THE PRESS:
    Who’s the strongest candidate to take on John McCain?

    After 45 contests, Senator Obama has won more delegates, twice as many states and territories, and more of the popular vote. He’s won in every part of the country, and has scored victories among every segment of electorate. He’s inspired Democrats, Independents, and Republicans, building an unprecedented coalition of more than 1.4 million contributors. And when it comes to head-to-head match-ups versus John McCain, Obama performs better than Clinton in key states and shows the potential to put new states in play for Democrats up and down the ballot.

    Polling data from across the country, from large states and small, reflects the advantage Senator Obama would bring in a race this fall. His ability to expand the Democratic base, and his ability to capture the crucial Independent vote, make him a stronger candidate than Senator Clinton, who would enter the fall campaign with the highest unfavorable ratings of any nominee in half a century.


    Big States:

    California: Obama beats McCain by 27, Clinton beats him by 23. (SurveyUSA, 2/23)
    New York: A February poll of Clinton’s home state shows her beating McCain by 11, while Obama beats McCain by 10. (Quinnipiac, 3/18)
    New Jersey: Obama and Clinton both beat McCain by 5. (Farleigh Dickinson, 3/30)
    Illinois: Obama beats McCain by 29 in his home state, while Clinton wins by 9. (SurveyUSA, 2/28)

    Traditional Battlegrounds:

    Iowa: Obama up 7, Clinton down 6. (SurveyUSA, 4/17),

    Among Independents: Obama up 9, Clinton down 31. (Rasmussen, 3/31)
    North Carolina: Clinton trails McCain by 11, Obama ties him. (Rasmussen, 4/10)
    Among Independents: Obama up 8, Clinton down 16. (Rasmussen, 4/10)
    Oregon: Obama up 9, Clinton up only 1 (SurveyUSA, 4/17) A march poll showed Obama up 6 and Clinton down 6 (Rasmussen, 3/26)
    Among Independents: Obama up 11, Clinton up 4. (Rasmussen, 3/26)
    Wisconsin: Obama up 5 while Clinton ties. (SurveyUSA, 4/17) A March poll showed Obama up 4 and Clinton down 4. (WPR, 3/26)
    Among Independents: Obama up 17, Clinton up 2. (Rasmussen, 3/26)
    Michigan: Obama trailing by 1, Clinton trailing by 3. (Rasmussen, 3/25) A February poll showed Obama up 8 and Clinton tied. (Rasmussen, 2/17)
    New Mexico: Obama up by 3, Clinton down by 3. (Rasmussen, 4/8)
    Among Independents: Obama up 8, Clinton down 5. (Rasmussen, 4/8)
    Nevada: Obama leads by 4, Clinton leads by 1. (Rasmussen 3/19)
    Minnesota: Obama up 14, Clinton up 5. (Rasmussen, 4/22)
    Among Independents: Obama up 9, Clinton down 14. (Rasmussen 3/19)
    Pennsylvania: Clinton up 9, Obama up 8 (Rasmussen, 4/9)
    Among Independents: Obama down 1, Clinton down 19. (Rasmussen, 4/9)

    Making New States Competitive:

    Colorado: Obama up 3, Clinton down 14. (Rasmussen, 4/19) A February poll showed up Obama up 9 and Clinton down 6. (SurveyUSA, 2/28)
    Among Independents: Obama up 9, Clinton down 13. (Rasmussen, 3/17)
    North Dakota: Obama up 4, Clinton down 19. (SurveyUSA, 2/28)
    Among Independents: Obama up 9, Clinton down 29. (Survey USA, 2/28)
    Virginia: Obama down 8, Clinton down 16. (SurveyUSA, 4/17)
    Among Independents: Obama up 10, Clinton down 8. (SurveyUSA, 3/16)
    Montana: Obama down 5, Clinton down 18 (Rasmussen, 4/6)
    Among Independents: Obama down 2, Clinton down 12 (Rasmussen, 4/6)
    Texas: Obama down only 1, Clinton down 7 (SurveyUSA, 2/28)

      This is an Obama campaign memo which Jerome Armstrong says this about:

      I don’t know that I’ve ever seen anything a campaign poll memo that so obviously cherry-picks polls over the last 4 months to make their case. It’s almost satire. Some rookie mailed it in on behalf of the Obama campaign’s “memo to the superdelegates”. I couldn’t imagine a known political blogger creating this list, and not being laughed and mocked out of the blogosphere. On the other hand, maybe Andrew Sullivan will use it to make the case for Obama.

    Great post! I agree, obama should drop out now and save the party, but he won’t, he doesn’t have the integrity and courage to do what’s right, after all he is trying to disenfranchise 2.5 million voters to win at any cost.

    • B-Rob

      I agree! He should drop out! So what that he is ahead in delegates, ahead in votes, has more money in the bank, better negatives, is more competive against McCain, brings new voters to the party, and has afaithful spuse! He should drop out because he will MESS UP WHAT HAS WORKED SO WELL THE LAST TWO PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS!

      You people are a riot! But here is a hint: people drop out from a position of weakness. They do NOT drop out (voluntarily at least) when they have a fcuking lead!

      You can wish for many things to happen, including a Russian sattellite droping on his motorcade squishing him to death. But why the fcuk would he drop out to let an inferior candidate go after the presidency? That’s like expecting Muhammed Ali to drop out against Chuck Wepner!

        If the Democratic Party puts forth a nominee who is TIED with the Republican in MASSACHUSETTS (and the Rethugs have not even started on him yet) we will LOSE.

        The way the Dems run primaries with proportional delegates is NOT the way the general is run. It is WINNER TAKE ALL. BO will not carry Michigan or Ohio or Florida or Pennsylvania or even New Jersey — we will lose.

        It doesn’t MATTER if BO can draw millions of black votes in Mississsippi…that state is RED and will stay that way. If he is the nominee we will lose.

        If BO wants a political future he will be positioning himself for the VP position at this very moment. If he wants to be a footnote in American history, he will continue down the path he has been on and we will lose.

    “Pennsylvania Exit Polls Show Backlash For Hillary’s Attacks”

      You better look at those exit polls closer and ask yourself why,not only did he not pull all those filthy hicks he hates, but he lost Montgomery and Bucks Counties, you know, those upscale places? He lost Bucks by 62-38. If Hillary’s win is a backlash,but all means give us more. You obviously dont know what a bellweather state is. If you did, you would know PA is one and that is a real problem for Obama. Bellweather and swing states have NO problem going republican. And Michigan and Florida are swing states. They will give Obama the finger he deserves in November.

      God save me from people who just got into politics to hold up the Baby Jesus. Your ignorance is palpable.

  • Mechan

    Negativity sure is the name of the game for the Obama camp..This whining is something that is really starting to get on my nerves…the big guy has best better grow up….he’s in the big leagues now..

    I have to share this, something I heard on the radio tonight from a talk show host up here in Boston…seems the Obama plane with his crew were flying back from an event…bunch of them have new teeshirts on and were passing them out….the teeshirts read….STOP THE DRAMA – VOTE OBAMA!
    Can you imagine anyone in his position validating something negative for his campaign…unbelieveable.

    • B-Rob

      Interesting . . . you think Obama is negative, but all polls show that people hold Hillary in a much more negative light. Someone is “out of touch” . . . .

    I don’t get it Uppity
    Not too long ago you had a long piece expressing your mortal fear of Obama, and that his followers are out to kill.

    If he is so powerful and fearful, why would he end up in a pile of ashes? (not that he would)

    Do you fear him? Do you hate him? What is it?

    • fooj

      It’s called implosion.

    • http://hyper-educated-uppity-woman.blogspot.com Uppity

      Yes I fear him and yes I hate him. With a passion, because he has offended me in at least two ways.

      He will be ashes after the 527′s are finished with him. A very small fine pile at that. People will be running away from him like people from a burning building.

      I have been in this movie before. Radicals and college students do NOT pick presidents. just ask McGovern. Then ask Dukakis.

    Good bye Democratic Party. See you again in ten years when some moderate will rescue you.

    • may not have to leave party

      uppity, i think you’re right. i think dean and his pals will ignore the reality staring in their faces and the b-rob frat boys will get their wish of an obama nomination. then in november they will learn the realities of the adult world and we’ll have president mccain. although i would much prefer hillary, mccain to me is a thousand times better than obama.

      then the frat boys will go back to their “scoreboard” crap (somewhat foreign to me since i’m over 25) and the dem party will go back to its losing ways.

      only thing i differ with you on is that i think it will be a good deal more than 10 years, probably 20 or 30. i expect to be gone before the dem party rights itself.

      thanks a lot, frat boys and your asinine candidate.

        None of you losers have yet explained to me how Hillary wins the general if she gets the nomination by hook or crook, thereby pissing off the Black voters and driving 25% to 40% of them to McCain and driving the rest home.

        None of you have explained how a woman who is considered untrustworthy by 63% of voters can defeat a GOPer with the exact opposite numbers.

        None of you have explained to me how, given the two facts above, a woman who independents despise can be elected against a liberal maverick GOPer.

        But in your minds, somehow her winning makes sense to you. And I bet you all believe in Santa Claus, too!

          well it seems to me 25% of the life long dems who have given the $$ and the time and labor in grass roots work for the dem party may leave as well ..or maybe more than 25%

          SO HOW DO YOU b-rOY FIND A SOLUTION TO THAT? and add some unions to that and many of us are big spenders with the dem party and many of us are even elected ..and many of us have worked our asses off for the dem party..we aren’t here for a party or a rallhy..we have been here long term and helped build this party..both with our dollars and our hard work and now we are being marginalized…

          yes we women who have kept this party going ..in many of our local towns and cities..for our local and national leaders that are now shitting all over us!

          so please do tell us about the African Americans and the young college kids who just found out there is politics in this country … kids who will be driven to McCain..or the nearest rave..or kegger…and i have tears..but i have more tears for those African Americans and women and children and seniors who will be strapped with a crook as a president..and who will never find a decent job in the future..seniors who can’t afford their meds..and kids who won’t be able to go to college because Obama wants to build Nukes for his buddies in Iraq and he needs poor kids to go to Iraq to give security to the Nuke corps..

          please don’t play silly games..go do some reading about your guy and come back here when you know what you are talking about..

          most of us here are not new to politics..and many of us have toiled for most of our long lives for the dem party..

            It won’t matter who’s President right now. So let McCain wear the collar for Bush. AAs need to grow up politically, anyway.

            Obama has played the black community to the tune of 90%. Even if he gets elected, which I doubt seriously, I guarantee you that these same supporters won’t feel the same way about him within a year, if that long. Remember you heard it from me first. It will get ugly for Mr. Biracial when AAs find out he was just a tool for our destruction and irrelevance. And so many will have voted for that privilege.

            This makes me sadder than even the impending doom.

        The Democratic Party will do the right thing after they exhaust everything else. They need to let this play out. Let the primaries continue and let the scandals surface Then they need to count Florida and Michigan and that will stop Obama. There is so much about Obama which is only beginning to come out now. How can a man be President of the USA and harbor such racist feelings? Check out the new You-Tube Video Shocking Obama Audio Anti White Hate Speech From His Own Mouth. I didn’t know anyone harbored such feeling let alone wrote a book about it. How can he be the President of the most diverse nation on earth and feel like this about its people?

    Poll Finds Majority of Americans Have Unfavorable Opinion of Clinton”

    http://abcnews.go.com/WN/DemocraticDebate/story?id=4668032&page=1

    Likely Democratic voters, 51-41 percent, say they want Obama to win the nomination — his biggest advantage to date. Obama has also cleared the “electability” hurdle in Democratic minds — 62 percent say he is more likely to win than Clinton.

    In more bad news for Clinton, 58 percent of Americans polled said she is not honest and trustworthy. Obama beats her on this attribute by a 23-point margin.

  • http://takeaction.wordpress.com/ A.Citizen

    Come on Bud….

    Why don’t you and the rest of the folks who can see Obama fairly clearly take that one last step to the whole truth about him?

    Simply put, Obama has been and is the Republican Party’s plan to win the Presidency in an election where they should stand no chance. A low-info, machine pol from one of the most corrupt states in the nation. A guy who has no skill-set to speak of other than an ability to mimic the rhetoric of past black speakers with the rhythms and the sound of those great individuals but without the muscle and sinew to make said speeches live in your heart. He leaves them lifeless propaganda. A candidate with a glass jaw as far as being able to take questions which contain any hint of criticism.

    Joe Lieberman is laughing up his sleeve at the Democratic ‘leadership’ which accepted the ‘Black Wooden Horse’ of Obama into Troy. He will make millions off of the biography he has yet to write about how he suckered the Dem ‘Leadership’ with the FAUX candidacy of Barry the Ignorant.

    Only the superdelegates and their votes stand between the culmination of Karl Rove’s greatest political ‘trick’.

    The election of Republican Senator Barry Obama to be President of the United States.

            True, she only has 4 times as much experience in the US Senate as her opponent; that proves he’s much more experienced than she is. She’s only travelled all around the globe, meeting and talking with people of all backgrounds, while he spent a chunk of his childhood in a foreign country, so I’m sure he knows much more about Indonesia than she does. She only helped her husband win the governorship of Arkansas and 2 terms as president, while Senator Obama has helped his spouse win 0 campaigns. She has suffered 16 years of abuse by a “liberal” media, and come back again and again in triumph, while he has had the benefit of fawning media coverage for the past year and gets into a snit when actual facts are reported about his campaign (thankfully for him, a rare occurrence). She is such a mess at handling money that she spent 1/3 as much money as he did in Pennsylvania, and kicked his behind on primary day.

        Yeah but what have they actually done for us since we voted them into power in 2006?

        They were elected to end the war. How’s that going? Now there are a few rumors about the congress being ready to bail on Universal Health Care via Schumer for one.

        So why is it that we vote these clowns into office again? Just what the hell has the Democratic Party done for us lately? Oh that’s right, then been less bad than the Republicans.

        I’m asking this as someone that has voted a straight Democratic ticket for 40 years and will never do so again.

    • Kourian

      Obama has been and is the Republican Party’s plan to win the Presidency in an election where they should stand no chance

      Not everyone agrees. Some people – Wall St, Soros, Mr Three Zees, et al – calculated a dem victory as a slam dunk in 2008 after eight years of W. But that doesn’t mean the GOP are behind it. No way.

      The real and imminent danger is HILLARY. For she might just do something for people and these creeps might lose 0.0001% of their privileged lifestyle.

      Barry OTOH has been really good with talking with them, taking their money, etc.

      There are two parties. In theory. And those with the power and the money are naturally hedging their bets. For anything’s better than socialism and proper health care and an end to the war etc.

  • B-Rob

          Dumbass.

      • B-Rob

        Hmm . . . let’s ponder this . . . he “looks down in the people in the stands” but is judged more likeable, more trustworthy, and more positive than your candidate. Has move votes, more delegates, won more states, and raised more money. OK . . .

        This is what’s funny: if all the things you folks were saying about Obama were true, he should have been back in Illinois before the end of January. Instead, he is in the lead and your candidate is not paying her bills, relying on a rule change just to be arguably competitive. And the superdelegates keep rolling in . . . five since Tuesday. This means one of two things:

        a) The negative stuff you say about Obama is bullshit, or

        b) it is true, but people hate Hillary more than him anyway!

        Personally, I think the answer is a, but I could be wrong.

        • http://bucknakedpolitics.typepad.com/buck_naked_politics/2008/03/media-obama-goo.html D. Cupples

          I think the answer is C: many media outlets have failed to objectively do their jobs and let ordinary voters know what’s really going on with Obama.

          My biggest beef with him: he SAYS that he doesn’t take money from lobbyists, PACs, oil companies, or other special interests.

          Technically, the claims aren’t false. On the other hand, they’re not really true, either:

          1) he took PAC money ($1million+) before announcing his presidential bid,

          2) he took money from lobbyists’ spouses

          3) he took hundreds of thousands from corporate execs (just like Hillary and McCain did) — in fact, Obama has even taken more pharma-connected $ than Hillary.

          I don’t mind when candidates follow our crazy system, but I DO MIND when they lie about doing what all the others are doing.

          Many Obama-friendly media people have failed or refused to cover these stories. It’s help like that that enabled Obama to go as far as he has re: supporters and donations, but some of it is just plain false advertising.

          • Strawberrybitch

You should try that sometime. Barack Obama doesn’t even have a decent health care plan to help them. He shows a clear lack of either understanding or empathy for those who cannot afford health care and why his “plan” is useless to them.

          It is Axelrod who is the truly despicable character in all this, but try as he might {Low road to Victory was HIS doing!] to get his boy to the finish line {Oops, not allowed to say boy; creep, then} Americans are too smart to elect a racist, radical, black separatist who associates with criminals, terrorists, anti-Americans, anti-Semites, PLO and Saddam supporters. You see, Obama’s campaign people claim we won’t vote for him because we are racist, but the real reason is that Obama is not PATRIOTIC! Patriotism is the first character trait that we should be able to expect in a presidential candidate. The second is a little class, and giving Hillary the finger was Not presidential! What a LOSER! We Dems vow to vote for McCain in November if Hillary is not the nominee. The DNC and party leaders believe we won’t do it, they say we’ll come together behind Obama. I can hardly wait to see their foolish faces!!!

      This has been covered already, clueless. As you yourself admit in your post, BILL Clinton COMMUTED the sentences of Weather Underground members who had been convicted and who had already served time. He didn’t become bosom buddies with a terrorist and take campaign contributions from him. He doesn’t continue to support him to this day.

      But I’m sure you see the two cases as parallel. Because you are a moron.

      Pardoned them after they served a significant chunk of their sentences and expressed remorse, as happens from time to time with even violent criminals. Sworn judges do it.

      That’s QUITE different from buddying up with someone whose family connections got them OUT of serving time and who has not only expressed no remorse but has said he didn’t do it enough.

      Don’t even THINK of comparing these. They are lightyears apart. You’d have to reach to the Moon to reach far enough to make them comparable. And what’s more, you damned well know it, so wise the hell up.

    • Kourian

      Yes it’s downright terrible. Such a humiliating loss for Obama. Singlehandedly he’s ruined the Democratic party. Who knows what will happen to the United States now. Or the rest of the planet. The US – the world – there’s one chance. If Barack Obama has a mere one ounce of decency in him – and this as we all know is very slim – he should withdraw immediately from the nomination and throw his suport to Hillary. Then there is still a chance.

      But farther down the line the GOP will attack the Democrats for being so stupid and indiscreet and drinking the Kool-Aid™ of this sack of shit for so long. The GOP will use this intermezzo as an argument against trusting Democratic politicians anywhere. And it will continue to be an effective argument for years to come. Barack Hussein Obama has singlehandedly disgraced the Democratic Party and it doesn’t matter how many voters he’s bamboozled up to now, it doesn’t matter how many idiots have yanked on his okey-dokey.

      He should announce his withdrawal immediately. Tonight already. He won’t debate; he won’t talk to the media; he’s through. Finished. Finito. Kaput. And each day – each hour – he delays the inevitable means more long term damage to our party.

      Barack Hussein Obama must withdraw his candidacy immediately.

Because adults don’t let radicals, leftwing nutballs, college kids and domestic bombers, and other assholes like you who thinks that’s romantic to pick presidents. And since Obama has nothing that even remotely resembles a decent health care plan that looks better than what McCain would do, I couldn’t care less. My life is fine. you people are just managing to fuck it up for plenty of people who need health care is all. But don’t let that stop you from having your rally fun.

                Telling people who have to pay nearly 2k a month on a single pay health care HMO, which is what it costs where I am…that you are going to give them a $2500 write off to reduce the cost is useless, you moron. My God, man, we could get that from McCain! Obama has shown me has has NO idea what health care costs because he gets his ass covered for free. he hasn’t done his homework on ANYTHING, but especially not this. What does the person who is unemployed and whose COBRA runs out do with his health care plan. WHat does the woman who quits work to take care of her elderly parents do with that write off, wipe her ass with it? Ah well she’s only a woman so screw her, right? Barack Obama is handing out snowballs in the summertime for a health care plan. Nothing. Nada. Useless. Just like him. To say he “won’t interfere” with the states’ plans is a death rattle for fifty million people. The states are owned by health insurers. But don’t let THAT stop you from having your rally fun.

                  The 2k is for a family, I should clarify that. One person is nearly $900 per month. Per month Rob. Wipe your ass with that 2500 write off you selfish bastard.

                      I thought you might like to defend an ignorant, uninformed and uncaring candidate who thinks reducing a 20k+ plus a year health care bill for a middle class family by a whopping $2500 is a good thing and will help them in some useful way. Especially once the states, who are owned by the health insurers, watch the insurers raise the rates by that much so they can screw America some more. Oh yeah, barry is a good deal. The piece of crap.

                “Spewing bullshit” is all they’ve got.

            He will *aspire* to be a pile of ashes by October. Probably sooner, especially with this lovely Wright tour.

          Obama is a loser and he will be responsible;
          for a McCain presidency. In fact Obama already is. Obama is a disgrace; he is unelectable and is taking the Democratic Party and all what it has achieved down the drain all the way to the gutter.

          The problem with these polls is the size of their samples…400-1000 registered Democrats?

          I already learned my lesson, NEVER trust the pools.

          No. It would require only that people started thinking with their brains instead of their arses or their shivering middle legs. It would require taking a step back from postmodern racism, black supremacy, postmodern fascism. It would also require that adults everywhere began taking those parental controls on their computers seriously. Then we’d be rid of you right away for example.

          How’s he doing GE-wise, y’know, in the battleground states that are necessary for us to win in November? Hint: he sure ain’t winning. Check out the most reliable pollsters, Survey USA.

        It’s the B string John. The A string has already been blocked from the Hillary boards they drove us to. They have retired at Kos. These jokers will last for even less time because their derailing welcome is getting really really thin.
