  • Barack: Beginning of the End

    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    Beginning of the end?

    Obama falling to pieces
    Polls show him down and sinking deeper

    Having a bounce in the polls is expected for a Presidential candidate after their Party convention. In recent history Democrats such as Michael Dukakis, Al Gore and John Kerry saw heavy surges in the polls after their big events, only to loose on the first Tuesday in November. So deep concerns must have engulfed the Obama campaign when polls showed him receiving no bounce to four points at best.

    The McCain campaign deserves credit for controlling the political conversation after Obama gave his Hollywood style speech. The media discussed his acceptance address for less than 24 hours and then it was time to add "change" to the campaign in the form of GOP Vice President candidate Sarah Palin.

    Since Palin was introduced to America as well as the world, any traction Obama gained had dwindled. Since her speech at the Republican convention and McCain's the next day, the polls began favoring the Arizona senator. Today Obama and his running-mate, you know, whats his name the plagiarism dude, are down in every poll and there is no end to their free fall in sight.

    Making matters worse for the Democratic ticket is their allies in the media are also falling from grace. Obama loyalists Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann have been dropped from anchoring live political events for MSNBC. Such a move is more symbolic than anything else. They are being replaced by another leftist David Gregory, but none of it matters as it appears nobody is watching MSNBC anyway except for the broadcasters family members.

    Rolling Stone magazine and US Weekly publisher Jann Wenner has been outed for using his publications to promote Obama, while attacking Palin. While Wenner undoubtedly believed he could influence woman waiting in the grocery check out line with his negative cover story about Palin, his plans have backfired as the public overwhelmingly believes the media is treating the mother of five unfairly. Rule #1 never mistreat mom. Especially a mom with a special needs
    child.

    With seven weeks to go anything can happen. McCain may come across as too old, Biden may speak, Palin may have had nude pictures taken when she was younger and we may learn that Barack Obama has had additional relationships with clergy and activists who hate America as well as Jews. We just don't know.

    What we do know is that even with the ouster of the MSNBC clowns the media will continue to be relentless in their attacks against McCain and Palin. In the meantime Biden needs to go into hiding as it appears without a doubt that he was a worthless choice for Obama. Word to the unwise. Don't pick a foreign policy guy who doesn't believe that Iran's Revolutionary Guard isn't a terrorist group. Bonehead! Finally we know that Obama will not debate McCain at town hall meetings, relying on teleprompters and time restricted canned answers during standard debates.

    Substance vs. Superstar will continue to be the battle for the White House. However Obama doesn't have the star power he did a few months ago and his star is being out shined by the #2 on the GOP ticket. Who just happens to have more substance in her hair pins than Obama has in his entire head.

    Not terribly surprised by the fall from grace, just by its suddeness. I figured it would take a few weeks before the air was let out of Obama's suit. The Palin nomination really knocked them back and I don't think they will recover.

      Smart move by McCain to pick a woman VP. The H. Clinton followers were talking about voting for him despite what both of the Clintons told them they should do, and now they'll definitely vote for him. H. Clinton supporters would rather see a woman in power somehow rather than to stick with their party. Let's not forget how racially divided the country is, and despite Obama picking Biden as a VP, so far it hasn't done him any good. The fact that Palin is a woman, a mother of five, and soon to be a grandmother is just too much right now. We'll see how the investigation into Palin having something to do with having her ex bro-in-law fired turns out.
      Intolerant of ignorance, acting, and BS!!

        I had a lot more faith in women than to actually be so stupid as to support McCain simply because a woman is on his ticket. I mean, how stupid. Stupid, stupid, stupid. "Well, we have different views on most fundamental beliefs and policy decisions...but she's a woman!". Good lord. BUT, its working. Sad to say...

        And I don't know, I don't think this is "it" for Obama but he's going to have to do something to get his momentum back. I def thought picking Hilary as VP would have helped, maybe I'm right for once...

          Hey DaLAw - I had a lot more faith in blacks than to actually be so stupid as to support Barack Hussein "my Islamic faith" Obama (not Osama) simply because he's black. I mean, how stupid. Stupid, stupid, stupid. "Well, we have different views on most fundamental beliefs and policy decisions...but he's a black man!". Good lord. BUT, its working.

          Eh.... see any irony or hypocracy there, anyone??

                      Unfortunately, there are indications that Palin is beginning to fall apart.

                          The snippet of the interview with her that NPR ran tonight made it seem like she did not know much about Bush's foreign policy. And her efforts to quash the inquiry into firing the head of the State Police are not encouraging. Whether or not she had the power to do that, if she fired him for personal/family reasons, that would be wrong.

                            That's just hype for the interview...I'm sure people are now going to tune in just to see if she messed up...She'll be ok...
