We are on May 25th, the media & virtually All Democratic Party leaders have all but declared our 2008 Nominee in the honorable Senator Barack Obama.
Financially, our nominee as reported by the mainstream press is about to break historic fund raising records never seen before.
The two most politically watched shows, MSNBC & CNN have both unofficially declared Sen. Obama as the 2008 democratic nominee.
The liberal television, print & online media have sharpened their criticism of Senator Clinton to withdraw.
The pressure is on.
The positioning for a running mate has begun. Signs of some Clinton democrats folding their tent & uniting behind Obama for the sake of party loyalty have begun.
With All that said .....
Every Single poll shows the Worst Republican Party image & branding in the last 40 years. The Highest Negative rating of the GOP in the last 40 years.
Every single poll shows democrats poised to gain even more house & senate seats in November. Its only a question of how much gain democrats would achieve.
With All that perfect background for any Democrat, there is One Thing that Stands Out the Most. While the MSM is trying hard to Ignore it, more & more journalist & political commentators are pointing it out.
What stands out ?
No need to look far. Look on the top of this page, your left & your right. No need to seach far. Go to the latest Gallup polls.
No need to waste time. Look at state by state pollings on RealClearPolitics.com
What are two things that standout in this heavily favored democratic season ?
One, an Unbelievable Weak Nominee in Barack Obama. A nominee who regardless of your political persuasion ( except his left wing supporters in blinders) would see a Very Likely Potential of Losing the Electoral map in November. Some would even be more direct in predicting a major electoral defeat.
Inspite of the Entire Media outlet, Huge Financial Advantage, combined with a damaged, hurt, battered Republican Party- their nominee Sen. John McCain is in good shape state by state to win in November.
Lets be blunt. If the GOP were even just a few percentages higher, Obama would be losing today by a landslide. ( and he still may in Nov.) That's how weak this guy is.
Two, an Amazing display of strenght by Senator Clinton. No matter how much the media, the party elders, black leaders,& the liberal left wing base has demonized this candidate, no matter how short on funds she has..... ...
If we had the election today, Senator Clinton would win by a dramatic landslide over John McCain by 100 to 135 electoral vote margins.
It would be the largest democratic victory in the last 50 years.
While some of her supporters have been convinved by party leaders & the media to join & unite behind Obama, she is still on top.
As a White male union member & lifelong democrat who lives & works in a state that will decide this election in November, I have to say....
This is the worst decision ever made by "party elders" since Dukakis & Mondale.
When the nominee has received less votes among registered democrats, he deserves to lose in November.
I am all for civil rights & the advancement of all minorities.
But on this one, I stand with millions of democratric whites, latinos, asians & even some blacks in declaring...
choosing to nominate a much weaker candidate for fear of offending segments of the black electorate is way to high a price to pay.
Jesse & Al must be jumping up & down.
But come November, millions of us, true democrats will have a tough choice. Many of us will have to do what we did 20 years ago.
Ask Dukakis & Mondale- they will tell you.
