"Obama Supporters: Let's Stop Pretending"
Suddenly the Obamassiah doesn't look so impressive. In fact, on the heels of his big loss in the Pennsylvania primary and the Rev. Wright episode, Obama is beginning to look like a shmoe. As a result, the DUmmies have started panicking bigtime as you can see in this THREAD titled, "Obama Supporters: Let's Stop Pretending." Yeah, like let's stop pretending that our beloved Obama is some sort of Messiah who will save us all. Also let's stop pretending that Obama will have smooth sailing to the nomination because he is currently a bit ahead in the delegate vote. Obama will have to struggle with Hillary all the way to the nomination thanx to Operation Chaos. So let us now watch the DUmmie bite their fingernails over Obama's fate in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, watching the denizens of his DUmmie Ant Farm scurrying about very nervously, is in the [brackets]:
Obama Supporters: Let's Stop Pretending.
[That the Obamassiah is infallible.]
OK, it's not all of us, but it is a lot of Obama supporters insisting he can't lose the nomination. He can. I don't think he will, but if he tanks in NC and IN and gets (as he will) blown out of the water in WV and KY, SDs will have good reason to go with Clinton, and sorry, I would support that. Why? Because winning in November counts. Because I believe that McCain is light years worse than Clinton. Because I think the Supreme Court is more important than my candidate preference. I have never been a fan of Hillary Clinton's, but that's a far shot from seeing her as a neocon republican.
[Good News! KEN NORTON has predicted big wins for Obama in both the Indiana and North Carolina on Tuesday. Hee! Hee!]
The Wright thing is a blow. It is a factor. And though I don't think Wright will blow up Obama's candidacy, it could be the thing that starts to unravel it. Is it fair? No. Does it speak to the racism still extant in this country and the double standard applied to Obama re patriotism, etc? Yes. But I live in the real world, and if Obama's candidacy tanks over this, he shouldn't be the nominee.
[Wright blowed up Obama's candidacy. He blowed it up real good!]
I support Obama strongly. I think he'll overcome this. I deplore the premature grave dancing that many hillary supporters here are engaging in, but facts are stubborn things, and the fact is that other candidates have been taken down over equally suspect matters.
[Like the DUkakis Snoopy tank hat.]
Everything now hinges on NC and IN. If Obama only ekes out a win in NC, or worse, loses and loses by more than 6 or 7 points in IN, it's hard to see how he survives to win the nomination.
[Don't worry. Ken Norton of THE KEN NORTON EFFECT has predicted that Obama would win by 15 points in North Carolina and by 5 points in Indiana. Remember, Ken Norton's predictions over the years have a 100% consistent record.]
Flame the f*ck away.
[Or OD on your meds due to severe depression.]
What I'm hearing is that Obama won't eke out a win in NC, it'll be a double-digit win/ Keep your chin up.
[KEN NORTON backs you up all the way.]
You'll see a lot more fire out of Obama this week.
[As he lights up more cigarettes.]
We all know the polls will be down for Obama, and up for Clinton in the coming week or two. Because of SHIT. F*ck that. Do the right thing, Super Delegates.
[Pay no attention to the facts, Super Delegates.]
This is a VERY close race. Yes, Obama is a little bit ahead, but look at Hillary's numbers. A huge amount of people have voted for her and she has a huge amount of delegates. Just because Obama's numbers are a little bit higher, doesn't make her numbers small. There's an arguement that there will be outrage if the SD's go with Hillary, and against the will of the people. But, keep in mind, that the will of almost half the people, and the will of the people in MI and FL is for Hillary. Obama needs something more solid to distinguish him than rock star popularity.
[The Democrat Convention is going to be sooooo much FUn to watch in August. We need to triple team it with the DUFUs and run at least 10 per day when that happens.]
I volunteered for Hillary in PA and none of us had to PAY for anything. There was food and support galore, all provided by donors.
[So the Operation Chaos operatives got to eat FREE.]
Obama is not going to lose NC
[Is that you, KEN NORTON?]
We need to keep our chin up, and not give into the groupthink currently going on. Hillary supporters are rubbing their hands with glee right now.
[Because they are familiar with THE KEN NORTON EFFECT.]
What are you worried about?
[What, me worry?]
I'm confident. Take heart, cali. Time fixes a whole lot of things.
[Is that you, Pollyanna?]
The potential for more devastating stuff to come out of Wright's mouth is hanging over the Obama campaign's head and wishing it wasn't so isn't going to make it go away
[Rev. Wright is engaged in payback for being dissed by Obama.]
Obama is GREAT at faking sincerity. Damn near a genius.
[Bill Clinton still remains the Grand Master at faking sincerity.]
Hillary and her supporters can claim momentum all day but she cannot claim the nomination without a win among pledged delegates. In my view, if the Supers, for whatever reason, hand it to her even though she falls short on PDs, that would be much worse for our Party and our nation than even a John McCain presidency. She will not get my vote.
[Watch for fireworks if Hillary grabs the nomination away from your beloved Barack.]
Obama himself said that the battles ahead would be long and that there would be a chorus of cynics who would only grow louder and more dissonant. If this fine African American man can dare to hope and dare to challenge, then so can we GOD DAMN IT! Yes, they're going to keep throwing shit at him. And he, imperfect human being that he is, is going to make mistakes. They'd be throwing shit at Hillary too if they felt threatened. The very fact that at this stage they don't should tell you something. They'll ridicule, lie, cheat - bash him with anything they can get their hands on. And we have to GET TOUGH, cream puff. If Obama can take the hits, grit his teeth and refrain from screaming when the corporate owned media, or the right wing pigs hound him about their chosen 'gotcha' issue, then so can you. Just remember - it is the VOTERS who will decide, less than a week from today. Only then, if he doesn't manage to win, and I'm certain he will, can you wail with abandon. Until then fight with everything you've got or get the hell out of the way.
I don't know if I can take much more of this hand-wringing.
[OD on your meds and then wake up on the other side of the November election.]
If the SDs overturn the people's choice based on votes in two or three upcoming states, that will be the beginning of the end of the Democratic Party.
By next week this whole Rev. Wright thing will be over...finally and when the elections are done with Hillary not winning either, it will be over for her too. Obama just needs to stay on message and he will be fine.
[Return of Pollyanna.]
Our elections are now tainted. There are simply too many Republicans meddling... Particularly in those predominantly red states you mentioned. Why should we nominate the candidate personally selected by Republicans for their candidate to defeat in the fall?
[Like you meddled in New Hampshire by voting for McCain? The ironic thing is that if you Democrats hadn't switched over and voted for McCain, Obama would have won in that state and finished Hillary off for good. Instead, today Hillary is very much in the game haunting Obama due to Operation Chaos which is performing PAYBACK for the crossover voting you folks did earlier.]
It's over. Obama won it. If they take it from him based on racism, then all bets are off. Can't support the taking away of a nomination based on pure, unadulterated, old fashioned racism.
[Stand by for the Denver fireworks show!]
I don't think so... I think the SD's have made up their minds...and it's too bad. But if North Carolina is very close, maybe some of them will start getting the vapors and think again.
[Tuesday's primary results are going to be FUn to watch!]
I'm done with national politics for a while if they somehow get their way.
[Say "Good Night" DUmmie.]
Obama will win North Carolina by healthy margin
[Is that you, Ken Norton?]
oh, he already won and if the party reverses it there will be hell to pay, and i dont mean in the form of riots like oxyrush is calling for.
[How about like Recreate 68 and Al Sharpton is calling for?]
