who will win clinton or obama
After watching the Obama speech today, I have some Random thoughts:
- He stated previously that he was not present at any of these inflammatory sermons, yet today said 'I was'.
- Previously stated he wasn't aware Rev Wright was 'controversial', yet months ago the reason he gave for canceling Rev Wright to give the prayer at his entering the race announcement was 'some of his sermons are kind of rough'.
- His wife is middle-aged, yet she states 'now is the first time I have been proud of America in my lifetime' (not exact words but close).
- it is common for people to judge people by 'the friends they keep'
- I find many of Rev Wright's views frightening for many reasons.
- it seemed to me he was saying in the overall tone of the message - whites are racist / African-Americans are not.
- he seemed to equate what Rev Wright said with what Geraldine Farraro said.
- he remembered what his Grandmother's views were from childhood, yet not more recent views of Rev Wright.
- seems to me if you genuinely believe for 20 years he did not notice / figure out what was coming from that pulpit - how can one come to the conclusion as President he would have the ability and awareness to recognize bad judgement, execute due diligence, and be able to accutely discern matters - be an effective Leader of the Country.
- He is selling himself as very different from Rev Wright, he refuses to totally separate himself.
Again, these are just Random thoughts I had which I think merits 'food for thought'.
5/31/08: Team Hillary's response to the decisions of the DNC's Rules and Bylaws Committee today:
Harold Ickes and Tina Flournoy made the following statement:
Today’s results are a victory for the people of Florida who will have a voice in selecting our Party’s nominee and will see its delegates seated at our party’s convention. The decision by the Rules and Bylaws Committee honors the votes that were cast by the people of Florida and allocates the delegates accordingly.
We strongly object to the Committee’s decision to undercut its own rules in seating Michigan’s delegates without reflecting the votes of the people of Michigan.
The Committee awarded to Senator Obama not only the delegates won by Uncommitted, but four of the delegates won by Senator Clinton. This decision violates the bedrock principles of our democracy and our Party.
We reserve the right to challenge this decision before the Credentials Committee and appeal for a fair allocation of Michigan’s delegates that actually reflect the votes as they were cast.
Seen on the net (don't know if it's true or not) :-)
John McCain, Hillary Clinton, and Barak Obama were walking down a Washington
D.C. street when they came upon a homeless person.
The Republican, John McCain, gave the homeless person his business card and told
him to come to his office for a job. He then took $20 out of his pocket and gave
it to the homeless person.
Hillary was very impressed. When they came upon another homeless person she
decided to help. She walked over to the homeless person and gave him directions
to the welfare office. She then reached into John McCain's pocket and got out
$20. She kept $15 for her administrative fees and gave the homeless person $5.
When they came upon yet another homeless person Barak told the homeless person
to "have hope...change is coming..." and gave him nothing.
Now do you understand the difference?
4/2/08: ABC News' George Stephanopoulos Reports: Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., and former President Bill Clinton are making very direct arguments to Democratic superdelegates, starkly insisting Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., cannot win a general election against presumptive Republican nominee, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.
Sources with direct knowledge of the conversation between Sen. Clinton and Governer Bill Richardson, D-N.M., prior to the Governor's endorsement of Obama say she told him flatly, "He cannot win, Bill. He cannot win."
Richardson, who served in President Clinton's cabinet, disagreed.
Its frigthening to think that either one could win. Hiliary is the image of woman that I personally dont care to have represent me. Any woman who'd turn the other way on the public fiasco that her husband created by screwing his intern...is certainly someone I dont want running this country, turning head on foreign affairs etc.
And then theres Obama, One cant tell me they dont believe in the radical preaching of their preacher if it obvious that they attend and have a history with this man. Beware of both I say!
Clinton is really not doing well in the debates and her campaign is falling behind Obama's which has made excellent use of technology and is also much more efficiently concentrated. I also have my opinions about Obama being the media darling, but that's not the only reason he's been doing so well.
I would prefer Clinton, but I wouldn't mind seeing Obama as president. There isn't much difference, on the issues, between him and Clinton.
Do they all three normally walk down the street together, or was it a special occasion?
You've made it clear you despise Obama. Passing along Republican propaganda stories doesn't really help your case. The Republicans are as spendthrift as the Dems in spite of all the spin and horse hockey they shovel.
The only major party with any integrity is the Libertarian party.
It's obvious that the controlled media are doing their best to champion Clinton. The plutocrats know she can be easily blackmailed. She requires 80 percent of the remaining delegates to win the nomination so I figure we may see Michigan and Florida revisited. The chosen three are useless to the proletariat. So who really cares?
4/29/08: FINALLY, Barak 'I can no more disown Rev. Wright than the black community' Obama, has had a sudden change - people I know came to that very same conclusion (Wright is wrong) a very long time ago - just 48 hrs ago he was defending Rev. Wright - today the sudden change - some chickens have apparently come home to Roost !
Memorial Day: In his Memorial day speech yesterday spoke about an uncle "who was part of the first American troops to go into Auschwitz and liberate the concentration camps."
American troops didn't liberate Auschwitz; Soviet troops did.
According to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
well I think it doesn't matter which of the two democrats win because after all this hype over them is over, people are going to be so sick of it that they're going to change their vote to McCain. he's going to be the next president. people should be paying more attention to him now.
yeah, I have to say obama is going to win
even though both him and hillary suck
and honestly, if obama wins, the republicans will still run everything behind the curtains, because they have the $$, obamas just the frontman
I wish the government would be more honest...
the antichrist? lol, really? thats the best you got? try some logical arguments maybe someone will take you seriously...
hmm I dunno, obama has momentum and Clinton's beginning to look a little desperate...
Well, if Clinton won, then we'd have a dynasty kinda thing going on:
George Bush, 1988 -1992
Bill Clinton, 1992-2000
George W. Bush, 2000 - 2008
I thought this was a democracy?
Obama is the Anti-Christ, he made it this far so I doubt he's going to loose now. Because he's the Anti-Christ. you'll see. the one who gains power through politics to end the world
>> ...yeah, but only because his uncle was busy dodging sniper fire between photo ops. << - turns out that can't be it - no such uncle existed.
piker, Obama can't be the antichrist, because Huckabee is. I have an entry on my blog that proves it:
It appears Barak H. Obama unless backdoor promises and/or pressure is put on Super-Delegates to vote the other way.
id rather have mccain. I think they all stink.. (my opinion) but obama def NOT. probably clinton or mccain.
4/3/08: Jane Fonda today endorsed Obama - I know Hillary's relieved as any candidate would be !!
Both Obama and Clinton are too flawed in my opinion...
**~ John McCain for President ~**
...yeah, but only because his uncle was busy dodging sniper fire between photo ops.
It aint over 'til it's over, but Obama is clearly in the lead.
personally I want mccain. (I don't know hpw to spell it lol)
What do you mean people can't prove the antichrist?
Hopefully neither: )
or else we are screwed.
people can't prove the antichrist.
i <3 Obama.
