Obama Threatens Stations that Play “Ayers” Ad, Calls for Boycott | All American Blogger
Obama Threatens Stations that Play “Ayers” Ad, Calls for Boycott
By Duane Lester • Aug 27th, 2008 • 958 Views
This is right out of the Saul Alinsky playbook:
Sen. Barack Obama has launched an all-out effort to block a Republican billionaireâ€™s efforts to tie him to domestic and foreign terrorists in a wave of negative television ads.
Obamaâ€™s campaign has written the Department of Justice demanding a criminal investigation of the â€œAmerican Issues Project,â€ the vehicle through which Dallas investor Harold Simmons is financing the advertisements. The Obama campaign â€” and tens of thousands of supporters â€” also is pressuring television networks and affiliates to reject the ads. The effort has met with some success: CNN and Fox News are not airing the attacks.
Later in the article:
The Obama campaign plans to punish the stations that air the ad financially, an Obama aide said, organizing his supporters to target the stations that air it and their advertisers.
Here’s the ad:
There is nothing in the ad that is false. The facts are clear and listed in the ad.
When Obama was asked about it, he shrugged it off by saying it all happened when he was eight years old, and it was ridiculous to try to connect him with it. But it wasn’t eight years ago when Ayers said:
”I don’t regret setting bombs,” Bill Ayers said. ”I feel we didn’t do enough.” Mr. Ayers, who spent the 1970’s as a fugitive in the Weather Underground, was sitting in the kitchen of his big turn-of-the-19th-century stone house in the Hyde Park district of Chicago.
That was published the day the Twin Towers fell. Respectable? Mainstream? How about this photo?
Or better yet, how about him stomping on it, with a smirk:
The facts are, as reported in the Boston Globe:
Barack Obama’s political career was launched in Ayers’s and Dohrn’s home, when a group of “influential liberals” gathered in 1995 to meet the young organizer who was Illinois lawmaker Alice Palmer’s chosen successor. In the years that followed, Obama and Ayers would serve together as (paid) board members of the Woods Fund, a leftist Chicago foundation, and appear jointly on academic panels, at least one of which was organized by Michelle Obama. Ayers would even donate money to one of Obama’s political campaigns.
Arguably, none of this would matter if Ayers and Dohrn had long ago repudiated their violent extremism. But they have always refused to apologize for their monstrous behavior. “We weren’t extreme enough in fighting against the war,” Ayers told the Chicago Tribune in 2001. In a memoir published that year, he exulted: “Everything was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon.” America, he said after Sept. 11, “is not a just and fair and decent place. . . . It makes me want to puke.“
Here’s a video from Powerline Blog that shows more quotes and details the relationship between Ayers, his wife and Obama:
This is a guy Obama says is mainstream and respectable? Now, new documents shine brighter light on the relationship between Ayers and Obama.
The Globe asks a question that Democrats and Independents need to consider:
Is this Obama’s idea of “respectable” and “mainstream” political thinking? If so, doesn’t that tell us something about his judgment and standards?
After all, the whole foundation of his campaign is based on his judgment.
Other posts on the relationship:
* Stop the ACLU thinks Obama doth protest too much.
* Ed Morrissey explains “Why the Obama-Ayers connection matters.”
* Saul Alinsky’s “RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.” Michelle Malkin shows how Obama is using that rule to go after GOP donors.
* Stop the ACLU has additional coverage.
* The Sundries Shack details how the Obama campaign is using threats and intimidation to squash the issue.
* FullosseousFlapâ€™s Dental Blog, where I found the Powerline video, gives us a look at Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley’s thoughts: “Theyâ€™re friends. So what?”
* Ace of Spades HQ says Ayers found the bombings to be “restrained” and “not a big deal.”
What about the murder of police? Is that a big deal?
* The Jawa Report has the same quotes, saying “This is the next Jeremiah Wright, and Camp O! knows it.”
* Hugh Hewitt writes, “Like he did with Wright, Obama will now try and persuade the public that this isn’t the Ayers that he knew, but the voters aren’t fools.”
* American Thinker show another side of “Bill Ayers - Liar and Unrepentant Terrorist.”
This could be the undoing of the Obama campaign. It’s no wonder he’s trying so hard to keep this ad off the air. It seems to have touched a nerve.

My name is Joe Porter. I live in Champaign , Illinois . I'm 46
years old, a born-again Christian, a husband, a father, a small
business owner, a veteran, and a homeowner. I don't consider myself
to be either conservative or liberal, and I vote for the person, not
Republican or Democrat. I don't believe there are 'two Americas ' -
but that every person in this country can be whom ever and what ever
they want to be if they'll just work to get there - and nowhere else
on earth can they find such opportunities. I believe our government
should help those who are legitimately downtrodden, and should
always put t he interests of America first.
The purpose of this message is that I'm concerned about the future
of this great nation. I'm worried that the silent majority of
honest, hard-working, tax-paying people in this country have been
passive for too long. Most folks I know choose not to involve
themselves in politics. They go about their daily lives, paying
their bills, raising their kids, and doing what they can to maintain
the good life. They vote and consider doing so to be a sacred trust.
They shake their heads at the political pundits and so-
called 'news', thinking that what they hear is always spun by whom
ever is reporting it. They can't understand how elected officials
can regularly violate the public trust with pork barrel spending.
They don't want government handouts. They want the government to
protect them, not raise their taxes for more government programs.
I've never found a candidate in any election with whom I agreed on
everything. So when I step into that voting booth, I always try to
look at the big picture and cast my vote for the man or woman who is
best qualified for the job. I've hired a lot of people in my
lifetime, and essentially that's what an election is a hiring
process. Who has the credentials? Whom do I want working for me?
Whom can I trust to do the job right?
I'm concerned that a growing number of voters in this country
simply don't get it. They are caught up in a fervor they can't
explain, and calling it 'change'.
'Change what? ' , I ask.
'Well, we're going to change America' , they say.
'In what way? ', I query.
'We want someone new and fresh in the White House ', they exclaim.
'So, someone who's not a politician?' , I press.
'Uh, well, no, we just want a lot of stuff changed, so we're voting
for Obama', they state.
'So the current system, the system of freedom and democracy that
has enabled a man to grow up in this great country, get a fine
education, raise incredible amounts of money and dominate the news
and win his party's nomination for the White House - that system's
'No, no, that part of the system's okay - we just need a lot of
And so it goes. 'Change we can believe in.' Quite frankly, I don't
believe that vague proclamations of change hold any promise for me.
In recent months, I've been asking virtually everyone I encounter
how they're voting. I live in Illinois , so most folks tell me
they're voting for Barack Obama. But no one can really tell me why -
only that he's going to change a lot of stuff. Change, change,
change. I have yet to find one single person who can tell me
distinctly and convincingly why this man is qualified to be
President and Commander-in-Chief of the most powerful nation on
earth - other than the fact that he claims he's going to implement a
lot of change.
We've all seen the emails about Obama's genealogy, his upbringing,
his Muslim background, and his church affiliations. Let's ignore
this for a moment. Put it all aside then ask yourself, what
qualifies this man to be my president? That he's a brilliant orator
and talks about change?
Friends, I'll be forthright with you - I believe the American
voters who are supporting Barack Obama don't have a clue what
they're doing, as evidenced by the fact that not one of them - NOT
ONE of them I've spoken to can spell out his qualifications.Not even
the most liberal media can explain why he should be elected.
Political experience? Negligible. Foreign relations? Non-existent.
Achievements? Name one. Someone who wants to unite the country?
If you haven't read his wife's thesis from Princeton , look it up
on the web. This is who's lining up to be our next First Lady? The
only thing I can glean from Obama's constant harping about change is
that we're in for a lot of new taxes.
For me, the choice is clear. I've looked carefully at the two
leading applicants for the job, and I've made my choice.
Here's a question - where were you five and a half years ago?
Around Christmas, 2002. You've had five or six birthdays in that
time. My son has grown from a sixth grade child to a high school
graduate. Five and a half years is a good chunk of time. About
2,000 days. 2,000 nights of sleep. 6, 000 meals, give or take.
John McCain spent that amount of time, from 1967 to 1973, in a
North Vietnamese prisoner-of-war camp. When offered early release,
he refused it. He considered this offer to be a public relations
stunt by his captors, and insisted that those held longer than he
should be released first. Did you get that part? He was offered his
freedom, and he turned it down. A regimen of beatings and torture
Do you possess such strength of character? Locked in a filthy cell
in a foreign country, would you turn down your own freedom in favor
of your fellow man? I submit that's a quality of character that is
rarely found, and for me, this singular act defines John McCain.
Unlike several presidential candidates in recent years whose
military service is questionable or non-existent, you will not find
anyone to denigrate the integrity and moral courage of this man. A
graduate of Annapolis , during his Naval service he received the
Silver Star, Bronze Star, Purple Heart and Distinguished Flying
Cross. His own son is now serving in the Marine Corps in Iraq .
Barack Obama is fond of saying 'We honor John McCain's
service...BUT...', which to me is condescending and offensive -
because what I hear is, 'Let's forget this man's sacrifice for his
country and his proven leadership abilities, and talk some more
I don't agree with John McCain on everything - but I am utterly
convinced that he is qualified to be our next President, and I trust
him to do what's right. (ed. note: Can any Democrat say this about
Obama?) I know in my heart that he has the best interests of our
country in mind. He doesn't simply want to be President - he wants
to lead America , and there's a huge difference. Factually, there
is simply no comparison between the two candidates. A man of
questionable background and motives who prattles on about change
can't hold a candle to a man who has devoted his life in public
service to this nation, retiring! from t he Navy in
1981 and elected to the Senate in 1982.
Perhaps Obama's supporters are taking a stance between old and
new. Maybe they don't care about McCain's service or his strength
of character, or his unblemished qualifications to be President.
Maybe 'likeability' is a higher priority for them than 'trust'.
Being a prisoner ofwar is not what qualifies John McCain to be
President of the United States of America - but his demonstrated
leadership certainly DOES.
Dear friends, it is time for us to stand. It is time for thinking
Americans to say, 'Enough.' It is time for people of all parties to
stop following the party line. It is time for anyone who wants to
keep America first, who wants the right man leading their nation,
to start a dialogue with all their friends and neighbors and ask who
they're voting for, and why.
There's a lot of evil in this world. That should be readily
apparent to all of us by now. And when faced with that evil as we
are now, I want a man who knows the cost of war on his troops and on
his citizens. I want a man who puts my family's interests before
any foreign country.
I want a President who's qualified to lead.
I want my country back, and I'm voting for John McCain.
It is not a black and white issue, it is a right or wrong issue.
Please pass this on to all your thoughtful friends.

You make me sick, Barry. No doubt, that poor woman deserved a helluva lot more than YOU gave her because see, you're a LIAR...yup...that's what you are. And one of the best kind - in fact, I do believe I'll go so far as to say that you're the BEST liar I've seem among ALL politicians, and, as you know, that's an awful lot of liars. Now this I'll give you. On THAT, you trump ANY Messiah whose story's been told. For that indeed, you ARE "The One."
Alas, I really didn't come here to chat with YOU because truth be told, it's only the screen between us that prevents me from spitting. What I really came to do is to point my faithful readers to no, not NoQuarterUsa, where Truth continues to be the bottom line, but to another link I have featured here in "our" special place. It ought to go without saying since it's readily apparent to the eye that I'm not big on huge blogrolls...I'm kinda selective that way. Besides, it's a simple point and click to find whatever it is that floats your boat in this milieu...so, if I DO feel a desire to highlight someone's dedication to truth-telling, you'll see it here. Which is why I wish to direct you all to go immediately to PaganPower - see link to your right. There is some FINE fine "work" goin' on there. Please don't miss it...but be warned. You're gonna get mega-doses of truth - providin' that's what you're lookin' for...and you are, right? That's why you're here, of course. Or, you're simply addicted to...well, you fill in the blank.
Well, onward. Being in a holiday frame of mind with Samhein 'n all, I got to thinkin' about what music I might want to play with the upcoming Christmas season and, the strangest thing happened..I know it's happened to you all too..You get a tune in your head and then you can't stop hearing it...that kind of thing. I keep hearing this one though I can't seem to remember the title...sumthin' like..."grandma got....hmmm....by a reindeer????"
Does anybody know if Barack was seen wearing a set of pretend horns gallopin' round the sunny beaches of ???

Is there ANY critical thinker who believes this Obamanana story?
One of the greatest skills sociopaths (aka anti-social personality disordered) possess is an extraordinary, almost otherworldly, ability to lie.
Those who believe them are their victims.
Thursday, October 23, 2008
Yet again, KUDOS to NoQuarterUsa. SOME people ARE out there telling the truth...and it's NOT NBC, MSNBC, CNN, NOVA M, AIR AMERICA and what USED to be trustworthy bloggers, liberal, progressive, or print media. Wake the hell up, America and you've got THIRTEEN DAYS to do so...You THINK you can MANAGE that???

Breaking! The Numbers Don’t Lie (But The DNC Does)
By Rabble Rouser Reverend AmygravatarcloseAuthor: Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Name: Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy
About: See Authors Posts (112) on October 22, 2008 at 11:45 PM in Bamboozling, Barack Obama, DNC idiocy, Democratic Nomination, Florida, Hillary Clinton, John McCain, Michigan, P. Cronin, Voter Fraud
[SusanUnPC’s Note: This post will remain atop the blog overnight so that as many people as possible will see Amy’s excellent presentation of Peniel’s findings, and can share the conclusions with everyone we know.]
Hot off the presses is this final report from Peniel Cronin, the author of an incredible study, “2008 Democratic Presidential Preference Election: Primary versus Caucus: How millions of voters were systematically disenfranchised and election results were skewed,” available at Dr. Lynette Long’s site, which contains a great deal of information on issues of caucus fraud.
Ms. Cronin’s final study, “2008 Democratic Presidential Preference Election: The People’s Vote: Delegate Allocation Per Original Votes Cast” is an eye-opener (and is available at the bottom of this post). No Quarter is quite fortunate that Ms. Cronin is allowing US to break this story! Thank you!!
The bottom line is this - had the RBC not interfered, the difference between the PLEDGED delegates would have been - wait for it - 4 (FOUR). Yes, I said 4. And, while caucuses accounted for only 2.9% of voters, they accounted for over 14% of pledged delegates. Never even mind all of the massive caucus irregularities that benefited one person - Obama. Still, the bottom line difference: 4 delegates, AND Clinton won the popular vote. Holy smokes.
Before I go further, allow me to introduce Ms. Cronin to you, and present her credentials:
Peniel Cronin has been President & CEO of Global Basics since 1993. Cronin holds a B.S. in Accounting from Arizona State University and has over 16 years experience as an accountant and Director of Marketing for several SMEs.
Cronin directs product development and market research and developed the algorithms that power the eNameWiz multilingual domain creation and advanced Name Analytics technology.
Enterprise clients through Global Basics have included the Arizona Office of Tourism, the Nevada Commission on Tourism, the Arizona Shopping Consortium, Shop America Alliance, America West Airlines, Southwest Airlines, AeroMexico and numerous other travel and domain industry organizations. Cronin holds three US & German Patents, several trademarks and numerous copyrights.
Cronin has had a disability for 43 years since a car accident in 1965. She was the Director of Marketing for one of the largest Independent Living Centers in the US for over 5 years and is a disability rights activist, speaker, trainer, and peer mentor to both people with disabilities and minority/women business owners.
What an amazing woman she is!
And now to the results Ms. Cronin has compiled. It will knock your socks off to see the actual numbers, the graphs, and machinations involved to get Obama the nomination. Many of us are aware of the level of caucus fraud that occurred over the Democratic Primaries, but the Numbers Don’t Lie, and here they are, including a spreadsheet of the votes state-by-state (click on the page to enlarge it):
Wow, right? There is more in this excellent report, but I thought this was of particular interest regarding the whole caucus returns:
Perhaps most troubling of all the elements that impacted the final delegate count was the lack of reliable election results –i.e., the undisclosed voter attendance data and non-certified caucus vote counts from 4 of the 6 largest caucus states in terms of votes cast. Iowa, Nevada, Washington and Maine did not even report total voter turnout and votes.
Together, these states cast an estimated 558,000 of the 1,057,136 million total caucus votes for Obama and Clinton. Thus, 53% of the total votes reported from the 13 caucus states were a guesstimate based on state Democratic Party estimates of voter turnout or based on projections by various researchers and news organizations.
Notably, the reported vote totals varied depending on the projection made by different news organizations and election researchers. There was no certification of results (and probably no solid audit trail) that would provide an exact vote count
as required to be reported through a primary voting system.
In addition to these 4 states, there were no solid vote-count numbers presented for the Texas caucus. In fact, the election vote tally there stopped after approximately 41% of the precincts had reported results.
From a delegate standpoint, these 4 caucus states plus the Texas caucus accounted for 239 pledged delegates – 48% of the total 498 pledged allocated to all caucuses.
Holy moly. Who knew that these were “ESTIMATES” and not actual counts for these caucuses? So let me understand this - not only did Obama have these caucuses gamed, but in most of them, they didn’t even bother to COUNT them all?? Um, counting isn’t rocket science, after all - addition is something you learn early on in grammar school. But it didn’t happen in this election. That seems to be a theme for the Democratic Primaries - “let’s not bother to count all of the votes this year, okey dokie?” Uh, yeah.
There is more, and I highly recommend you read the rest of it (it is short, but powerful). In conclusion, Ms. Cronin offers these thoughts (with slight corrections to web addresses):
With the overall election results being so starkly different between the two voting systems used – primary versus caucus,and given all the reports (and actual signed affidavits) of irregularities and fraud, why didn’t the DNC call for an investigation into the caucus results?
With so many complaints of irregularities, why didn’t superdelegates stop and question the legitimacy of the delegate count reported? As representatives of the people, why didn’t they look back to the pledged delegate count as determined
by the People’s Vote – the original votes cast and take note of Clinton’s 175,000 vote-victory margin over Obama and consider the flawed nature of the caucus system along with the small number of total votes the caucus-goers represented – before casting their votes which in the end selected Obama as the presumptive Democratic nominee? *
Think about it: 239 delegates, nearly half of all caucus pledged delegates, were impacted! That is more than enough to skew or sway any competitive election. And with what justification: under-funded, Party-financed elections, inadequate
volunteers to staff and monitor the caucuses, sloppy audit and paper trail systems? The State Democratic parties that run and finance caucus elections should not follow a separate, less-compliant set of rules. The DNC should act quickly to reform caucus voting systems and State Parties must be mandated to comply or get out of the electioneering business.
How is Democracy or the American voter served by the flawed caucus voting system or the Party’s blindness to it? Caucuses, while exemplary as a forum of debate and discussion, must be reformed or abandoned as a voting system before the next election cycle. Never again should the will of the majority of voters be thwarted by the will of the minority.
To read my original research entitled “2008 Democratic Presidential Preference Election: Primary versus Caucus: How millions of voters were systemically disenfranchised and election results were skewed” and to investigate caucus fraud issues further, go to: http://www.lynettelong.com/caucusfraud/statistics/ and http://www.wewillnotbesilenced2008.com/. I also recommend “Has America Outgrown the Caucus?” by Tova Wang a Democracy Fellow at The Century Foundation.
Another point to be made in terms of why the superdelegates did (or did not) do as they did was money, hence the *. I recommend this video by HRCinO8 to you - it is one you may have seen before, but it emphasizes how much money Obama shelled out to superdelegates.
These are excellent questions, Ms. Cronin. Another question raised in our email exchanges prior to this article was: Did ACORN have any involvement in the rampant caucus fraud that occurred this year? As of yet, I have no proof one way or the other, and would certainly be interested in any certifiable, authentic connections. It does seem plausible to me, though, given the extent of their voter registration fraud. Why would they do one and not the other?
And given the extent of that voter registration fraud, Ms. Cronin also questioned voting Third Party this year since the potential fraud is so pervasive that every vote against corruption is critical. While we know Gore actually won FL, the votes siphoned off to Nader made it easier to ignore the actual recount tally (post-Supreme Court decision). I think Ms. Cronin makes a good point regarding third party voting and the query about any connection to ACORN. I would like to thank her for making sense of all of the caucus irregularities and for showing, clearly, what we all suspected and knew in our hearts - that the DNC appointed Obama its nominee, not the votes or will of the people. For that, they have some ’splaining to do…

Tuesday, October 21, 2008
How is it that this dude seems to be able to escape the strongholds Obamessiah wraps his foot-soldiers in? What could possibly be in his head allowing Biden to spout off dire predictions possibly even MORE frightening than anything the right wing cabal might serve up? Ohhhh, I get it...maybe it's the setup to fail principle at work...or, maybe, in some very bizarre way, Biden's trying to warn us about what "The One" has in store for us? Not to mention countin' the chickadees before they're hatched, huh?
Shakin' in your boots yet, Obamabots??? Na. I know you're not. I can see your glazed-over eyes from here.
Good thing SOME of us have our eyes open.
Disenfranchised Democrat here. I want my party back (*wink* *wink* *nudge* *nudge*) This one party system here bites the big one, eh?

By Dr. Lynette Long
Here is the speech I will deliver in several places in New Mexico this weekend. (susanunpc’s note: Later today, Dr. Long will give us the precise locations and times so you can go see her if you live nearby. We’ll also look for her on C-Span and news networks, and try to find videos of her speech.)
NEW MEXICO SPEECH
My name is Lynette Long.
I am a feminist, a mother, a Democrat and an ardent Hillary Clinton supporter.
And I am voting for John McCain and Sarah Palin on November 4.
I want to start by saying something about the Democratic Primary. First, let me say that I have a Master’s Degree in mathematics and I am the author of 14 math books. I’m a numbers girl and I naturally calculate and extrapolate numbers in my head.
The primary process consisted of fourteen caucuses and thirty-nine primaries. Obama only lost one out of fourteen caucuses yet he lost twenty-one out of thirty-nine primaries. You don’t have to be a mathematician to realize something is not right. I first noticed something was wrong when I watched the returns from Texas come in.
Texas is unique in the Primary world because it has both a primary and a caucus. It’s called the Texas Two-Step. Hillary Clinton won the Primary by four points, yet she lost the caucus which was held on the same day by twelve points. That’s a sixteen point swing. Almost four million people participated in both the primary and the caucuses. If a poll with only 700 participants the margin of error is usually 3 or 4, then in a primary and a caucus, with millions of participants a sixteen point would be near impossible.
After questioning the likelihood of the Texas two step results, I decided to analyze the rest of the caucus results. Washington State, Nebraska, and Idaho also held a primary and a caucus and the results were even more divergent than Texas results. The divergent results were partially the result of the disenfranchisement that is inherent in the caucus process since the elderly, mother of young children and shift workers are less likely to attend. But they are also the result of voter fraud intentionally perpetrated by the Obama campaign and voter intimidation by Obama supporters. The result is that the primary was stolen from Senator Clinton.
Even without factoring in the caucus results, Senator Clinton and Senator Obama were only 27 pledged delegates apart at the end of the primary process. Obama, Pelosi, and other senior Democrats paid superdelegates to cast their votes for Obama. The Selection of Obama over Hillary Clinton by the Democratic Hierarchy was a miscarriage of justice and my reason for my original contact with the McCain Campaign.
After the last Democratic Primary was over and it was clear Senator Clinton was not going to get the Democratic nomination, myself, and a small group of Clinton supporters met with Senator McCain.
I personally explained to Senator McCain that women comprise well over half of the population, yet you will not see a single picture of a woman on paper currency. Women are underrepresented in every branch of government and there has never been a female president or vice president.
I personally asked Senator McCain to choose a woman for the Vice Presidential slot and to increase the number of women in the cabinet and on the Supreme Court. Senator McCain listened respectfully to my request.
Little did I know then that he heard me and the millions of women of this country who have gone unrepresented in the Executive branch of government for far too long.
When I made similar requests of the Obama campaign, I was laughed at by the canvassers outside my home, told there weren’t enough qualified women by a member of his Finance Committee, and asked by a member of a policy committee why I was making such a stupid request. Gender is the most fundamental human characteristic. The first comment made when a child is born is either, “It’s a girl” or “It’s a boy.” From that second on, boys and girls live in parallel universes in the same culture. You can’t learn what it is to be a woman, unless you are one. You can’t have a government essentially devoid of women that knows what’s best for women. You can’t legislate for women, without women.
But by choosing Governor Palin as his running mate, Senator McCain acknowledged that men can fully never know what it is like to be a woman, a mother, a daughter, a sister - things Governor Palin knows all too well. Senator McCain chose the second only bi-gender ticket in American history reinforcing his image as a maverick. Choosing a Vice-President, was the first significant decision Senator McCain and Senator Obama had to make. Senator Obama talks about change but picked a running mate who is part of the Washington establishment. Senator McCain’s choice speaks for itself.
Obama is a brand just like any other brand. Obama the Brand has a logo, a tag line, and a song.
But Obama the man is not the same as Obama the brand.
Obama the brand talks about new style politics, while Obama the man used Chicago style politics in every election. Obama the brand is for women’s rights while Obama the man marginalizes women and his supporters wear Sarah Palin is a cunt t-shirts. Obama the brand is pro-Israel, Obama the man is not.
Obama the brand touts leadership while Obama the man voted present 130 times in the US Senate. Obama the brand claims change, while Obama the man picks a Washington Insider as his running mate.
Obama the brand is a post-racial candidate while Obama the man plays the race card at every turn, listened for 20 years to the racial teaching of Rev. Wright, and makes contributions exclusively to Trinity United Church of Christ, the NAACP and Care Africa. Obama the man and Obama the brand are not one.
I have given my loyalty to the Democratic Party for decades. My party, which is comprised primarily of women, has not put a woman on a presidential ticket for 24 years.
My party was disrespectful to all women when they refused to nominate my candidate, Hillary Clinton, for president or vice president, even though she received more votes than any other Democratic or Republican candidate in history.
My party stood silently by as Hillary Clinton was eviscerated by the sexist attacks of the mainstream media. My party’s candidate was mute when Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Father Pfleger openly mocked Senator Clinton from the pulpit of Trinity United Church of Christ.
My party’s candidate was silent when the rapper Ludacris released a new song calling Hillary a bitch. My party’s candidate choose Larry Summers, the former President of Harvard, who said women can’t do science and math.
My party’s candidate pays the women in his office 77 cents on the dollar compared to me. My party’s vice-presidential candidate only pays women 73 cents on the dollar.
Neither my party nor its candidate has demonstrated in this election that they hold women in high esteem.
When it comes to women, sixteen is a special number. Did you ever hear the song 16 candles. Or the phrase “Sweet sixteen and never been kissed.” Eight plus Eight is sixteen, four times four is sixteen, and 2 x 2 x 2 x 2. But sixteen is special for other reasons.
* Guess what percentage of the members of the House of Representatives are women?
* Guess what percentage of the members of the Senate are women?
* Guess what percentage of the governors are women?
* Guess what percentage of equity partners in Law Firms are women?
* Guess what percentage of Science Professors at MIT are women?
* And guess what percentage of US Presidents or Vice-presidents were women?
* Not 16.
How can having a country composed of 52% women with only 16% representation be fair? How can it accurately represent the will of the people?
Sarah Palin is good for women. She has kept the debate about women in government and feminism alive. I happened to be on an Alaskan Cruise when Governor Palin was nominated for Vice-President. When we docked in Ketchikan my Blackberry was buzzing away with emails shouting, “It’s a girl.” I thought, “Who is a girl?” As soon as I stepped on-shore, I found out Sarah Palin was the VP pick. I can testify here today, that every person that I met in Alaska loved her. Alaskans are proud of their Governor.
I heard many people say they don’t think Sarah Palin is ready to be one heartbeat away from the presidency since Alaska has only 750,000 people. Let’s get this straight. Sarah Palin is only one of only fifty governors in the entire country.
If Alaska were a country, it would be the twentieth largest country in the world. The unique topography, economy, population, and climate of Alaska, all make Alaska a challenging state to govern. Home of the Alaska pipeline, Alaska hosts the majority of our oil resources and some of the largest fiscal projects in the country. Alaska, home to Mount McKinley, which towers over 20,000 feet, is home to indigenous peoples and remote towns that are not on the electrical grid. Alaska is the only state in the Arctic climate zone and is directly impacted by global warming. It is home to diverse wildlife and consequently management issues. Alaska shares a border with Canada and ten miles across the Bearing Strait is Russia.
I don’t want to hear Sarah Palin is only governor of Alaska. There is nothing only about Alaska.
I do not agree with Senator McCain and Governor Palin on all the issues, but I don’t agree with any candidate on all the issues. I am emphatically pro-choice, yet it’s a choice I hope most women don’t have to make.
Being pro-choice doesn’t mean I am pro-abortion. I would not want to trade places with any woman trying to decide whether or not to terminate a pregnancy. It is not a choice to be made lightly. But even though I will defend a woman’s right to choose, I will not surrender by vote to the Democratic Party out of fear of losing that choice. I will not vote for a Democratic candidate I feel is unfit to lead, just to protect Roe V. Wade.
The Democratic Party has blackmailed and bludgeoned women with Roe v. Wade for decades. Women’s votes cannot belong to a single party, because if they do we are hostage to that party. Women make up 52% of the population and 56% of the electorate. If we band together, we can change the world.
No one knows what is going to happen during the next four years. In the recent past, the challenges to each President have been enormous.
When he took office, Harry Truman did not know that he would have to decide whether or not to drop the atomic bomb on Japan.
Lyndon Baines Johnson didn’t know that on April 4,1968, Martin Luther King would be assassinated, propelling the country into racial unrest.
George Walker Bush didn’t know that on September 11, 2001, terrorists would wage the greatest attack on US soil.*
We need a President that is prepared to lead on day one - ready to handle any attack, any crisis, any financial emergency.
I cannot vote based on POLITICAL PROMISES and POLITICAL PANDERING. But I can vote based on PRINCIPLES and PATRIOTISM. In Senator McCain and Governor Palin, I find two people with personal integrity and a love of their county — individuals who not only talk the talk but walk the walk. I can work with that. I will vote for McCain-Palin. In fact, I’ve decided to try to win one vote a day for the McCain-Palin ticket. My new personal mantra is, “A vote a day, keeps Obama away.”
Make no mistake about it, we are in a war. I am not talking about the Korean conflict where our soldiers literally stand shoulder to shoulder with the troops from South Korea starring at the demilitarized zone the most heavily armed strip of land I the world. I am not talking about Afghanistan where our troops search for Osama Bin Laden and the other terrorists that perpetrated nine-eleven. I am not talking about Iraq, where over 100,000 of our young men and women are embroiled in a civil war. I am talking about a war on our own soil, a fight for our way of life.
This war pits socialism against capitalism. Barack Obama may call it “income redistribution” but socialism by any other name is still socialism. This war that if lost will undermine the underpinning’s of our economy and what we know as our way of life. This is a war between Barack Obama and John McCain.
Are you willing to fight for economic freedom or do you want to live in a socialist country?
Will you vote for John McCain and encourage everyone you know to do the same. Our country needs you. John McCain and Sarah Palin need you.
Join me on Election Day and save our country.

Here's a little sumthin' for ya from Uppity the Writer - Enjoy your 15 minutes of fame, 'k?

I’m sitting here thinking that ACORN is committing in-your-face voter registration fraud all over the country,
Barack Obama paid ACORN more than $800,000 via one of their hundreds of subsidiaries operating out of the same address. The purpose: To “Get Out The Vote”. He trained early little ACORNS when they were just little nuts in Chicago–and denies it with his typical pathological liar dexterity.
Fannie Mae was the biggest fraud perpetrated upon America’s economy by the worst of criminals–members of congress,
Fannie Mae’s former CEO walked off with $90 million dollars as a reward for cooking their books and bringing down America,
Barack Obama has collected money from the brothers who live at a Hamas Compound and didn’t bother reporting it to the FEC,
AIG went on yet another trip on taxpayer money–this time to hunt partridge in England,
Nobody cares that Barack Obama is lying about his relationship with a domestic terrorist who still hates America and cannot wait to get his talons even further in the Subversion of America’s education.
Nobody notices that several additional members of the former Weather Underground are working hard to get Barack Obama elected.
Even more ironic, the Ohio Secretary of State needs the Supreme Court to tell her to do her job and allow the counties in Ohio to check several hundred thousand ACORN voter registrations to see if any of them is actually legitimate.
The Breaking News is that Joe isn’t a licensed plumber. And he was obviously a Plant! Obama showed up in Joe’s neighbhorhood and started talking to everybody while they Worshipped, and this guy Joe found out he was going to be there so he obviously moved into a house there really fast so he could pretend to be a resident and could be a plant! Yeah! That’s it…….
So Joe asked him a question like he wasn’t supposed to. He was just supposed to worship. Only it wasn’t a question The One wanted to hear.
And he’s a Republican, which I am assuming they regard as some kind of disease or something. I mean, inquiring minds want to know, Barack. Are you only planning to be President of the left wing of the left wing of the Democratic Party, Communists, Marxists, ex-terrorists and deadbeats? Or do you plan on getting rid of everybody else? You know, people who actually pay taxes and things? Just wondering.
After all, this Joe The Plumber thing is critical stuff! No sense of covering something trivial, like say, Obama’s Old Friend and political fixer Tony Rezko, the shameful slum lord who bilked the taxpayers out of millions to “restore” buildings as living quarters for the poor–but instead turned off the heat and allowed family pets in the form of rats–while Barack Obama looked the other way.
Why bother worrying about Obama’s connections to Rashid Khalidi, former PLO member. when you can check into Joe The Plumber and hit him with his own basin wrench for disturbing The One’s reverie?
Why bother looking into why an Iraqi prison escapee with a mansion in Chicago would contribute to Barack Obama’s campaign when you can tell the world that Joe The Plumber isn’t licensed yet?
All that other stuff is just plain trivial. What’s important is, Joe The Plumber. Why? Well because, it’s not nice to question The One Joe!!!! You made him look foolish, man. That can be downright hazardous.
Deflect. Re-route. Change the subject to something else. It’s what the Obama campaign is all about. Ask them about his terrorist buddies and hear an answer about the weather (scuse the pun). Mention ducks and hear about bears. Deflect, Deflect, Deflect. And if you can’t do that, just kill the messenger.
Congratulations Joe, you are the perfect example of what an Obama Presidency would be like. Complain, show doubt, ask a question, and plan to suffer for it. And get that American Dream crap right out of your head, Joe. That’s a Flusher under an Obama Administration. We need to all be the same, Joe. You know, you fail, I gotta fail too. It’s the Socialist Way, Comrade.
But don’t worry about taxes in the future fella! When they are done with you , you won’t be paying ANY taxes, because you won’t be working! The Secretary of State of your state will toot right along, complicit with voter fraud for The One, but you, Joe…..you are doomed, you bad boy you! You evil person! You don’t even make $250,000 a year, Joe! But don’t worry, you never will when they are done with you.
Now, I have a suggestion for you, Joe. I hear you work 10-12 hours a day. Why bother working so hard, Joe? What you can do if Barack Obama is President is just work enough to make sure you pay no taxes after your write-offs. Then sit and wait for the IRS to give you a check! What a deal, Joe! We’re all going to do it. It’s going to be the Great unAmerican Giveaway!
Get with it Comrade! And for goodness sakes, stop asking questions, will you? It annoys Comrade Obama and gets in the way of the Glorious Cause. That freedom and Democracy stuff is all over-rated anyways. That’s why millions upon millions of immigrants came here to get away from guys just like Barack Obama.
‘‘If you believed (Obama), I’d be receiving his tax cuts,’’ Wurzelbacher said. ‘‘But I don’t look at it that way. He’d still be hurting others.’’
Not as much as he’s gonna hurt YOU, Joe. Your question made The One gaffe. That’s a No-No. You’re toast, fella.
Meanwhile. off to the Re-education camp with you, Joe!

I just have to wonder why it is though, that they're so in the tank for Obama - liar, clever racist, opportunist - take your pick, and there IS so much more to choose from. All you have to do, as always, is the research - Rezko, Ayers, and Wright oh my! - kinda has a nice ring to it ala Wizard of Oz - which is exactly where we'll be should this charlatan steal the election as his ties to Acorn seem to suggest is a reasonable possibility. Oh, silly me...I forgot that Bots think acorns just fall from trees....just who IS the real Obama? Guess we're not meant to know since he refuses to produce a bona fide birth certificate...(ya, Michelle, I know you slapped AP's hands for that one..how DARE we want to know! And where have they been hiding you lately? Too loose of a cannon perhaps?)
Hello, folks - this is NOT your Democratic Party here, you know that, right? Pardon me for a few flights of ideas...I deserve them - crazy thoughts for crazy times 'n all. Up is down, truth is lies, and it wasn't Alice but Winston Smith who fell through the looking glass after all.
The only racism in this campaign originates directly from the Obama camp...I guess they think we're stupid and don't get how THAT kind of manuever works...right out of the Rovian playbook no less but speaking of - how come he's not behind bars yet? Pelosi, you have any idea why that might be? How about you, Reid? You know? Ah, but I digress...
The fix is in. Remember that. And one more thing - if you still buy into the thought that our elections are legitimate, think again. And I ain't talkin' voter fraud here...and if you think this Wall St bailout is unrelated, think again. Anddddd, if you think that what you're seeing played out for you on the media stage reflects the truth about our government, think long and hard. Because in case you haven't figured it out yet, we're on the cusp of finally realizing the New World Order that (surprise, surprise!) was all nicely laid out for you when the new "Founders" published it on their website. Google it. Project for a New American Century (which you SHOULD have done YEARS ago. Then, check a little more history...a few buzzwords for you to knock around...Illuminati...Council of Foreign Relations - h/t to Senator Dodd....Skull and Bones - hey, Kerry, remember THAT joke? The Trilateral Commission -And, once you follow the yellow brick road there, since the typical American does better with all things video, go check out the Google movie, "Esoteric Agenda" if it's not too much trouble. Do I sound angry? Oh, you BET I'm angry...I'M FURIOUS...FURIOUS that this massive lie has been perpetrated not only on American people but people all over the world who see what's happening in this now subtley introduced to you new term "Global Economic Crisis."
Come on, people, open your damn eyes for once - if it takes your pocketbook to finally get you to notice, well, I suppose that's at the very least, a good thing - but what a crying shame that it had to come to that rather than a search for truth....Oh, one more observation for ya...How come in the midst of this so-called crisis, none of the media are questioning the BILLIONS of dollars being spent in that longggggg forgotten occupation in Iraq? Jus' wondrin'. Howz that surge goin', Petraeus? Anyone? Is ANYONE there???
Breaking News: Obama Won Tonight's Debate!
I have an idea...why not just cancel the elections, since they're fake anyway, go on ahead and just annoint "The One," and throw the money that would have been spent back to the "taxpayers" - it could as least prolong the World Game for a few more rounds, no???

Personally, I would be absolutely ashamed to support such blatant trickery, deception and lies that surround this empty suit, non-vetted candidate by any objective standard of measure. But, those who are brainwashed never do seem to be able to see the forest through the trees now, do they?
Anyway, here's the Most Disgusting Item of the Day - well, not really - EVERYTHING disgusts me about our current state of affairs but without further ado, behold the latest obamascam with huge H/T to Larry's folks:

From GateWayPunditThe failure to remove Gwen Ifill as moderator tonight is a travesty and embarrassment to the Commission on Presidential Debate’s mantra of “professional and nonpartisan“. Gwen Ifill has written a book, titled “Age of Obama” that she and her publisher are now promoting for release on Inauguration Day! She has a clear bias for Obama and stands to personally, professionally, and financially profit from his successful election as president. Thus, tonight, it is in her interest to see that Governor Sarah Palin does not do well, or is even embarrassed.
It cannot be understated that the moderator of the debate has control over the debate questions, follow-ups, and discussion. The moderator can overtly or subtly make a winner and a loser. Ifill’s bias and conflict of interest are so great and so obvious that any result tonight will be suspect. It is unfair to either candidate, to the parties, and to the American people that she continue as moderator. Gwen Ifill claims to be a journalist but has failed to honor one of its most sacred principles: impartiality.
Since, despite her bias and conflict of interest, Gwen Ifill refuses to step aside and allow for an impartial moderator to host tonight’s debate, it is up to us, the American people, to voice strong protest to force her replacement as moderator.
