Obama's BIGGEST GIFT to John McCain

Its a hot topic among political fanatics in Arizona. It was also discussed by Christopher Orr of the New Republic.
Pres.-Elect Barack Obama just gave Sen. John Mccain two gifts in the last two weeks. One of the gifts was a very big one.

First, Obama SAVED McCain's close friend, Joe Lieberman. Obama's message to the Senate Democratic of " I forgive Joe, lets move on" was big. It really pretty much saved Joe's neck. I'm sure McCain is very happy to see his dear friend Joe Lieberman escape this one.

Second, a huge gift for John Mccain.
President-Elect Obama just took out the one person who could have very likely ( in fact heavily favored) defeated John McCain in Arizona in 2010.
I am pretty sure the minute Governor Napolitano's pick was announced by the media, the entire John McCain Arizona team
had the biggest smile of the day.
Two head to head polls taken within the last 12 months showed Democrat Napolitano beating Mccain by a landslide double digit victory.
The Arizona Governors seat will also be difficult to hold by the Democrats. Our best hope would be Congresswoman Gabrielle Gifford. If she runs, we have a very good shot of winning.

But McCain's seat would have been big !!!!

So many Arizona democrats were ready, excited & looking forward to knocking off McCain in 2010. That's too bad.

3 Dozen Telemarketers Walk-out, Lose Jobs Fighting for Obama

A touching scene emerged in the state of Indiana. It was a courages action taken by over three dozen Call Center agents.
It also reminds all of us that there are truly good,patriotic, loyal americans who share our moral values. It also shows that Senator Barack Obama's leadership truly inspires regular americans across the country.

As reported by TPM, over three dozen call center agents walked-off  their telemarketing jobs at Americall, a call center based in Hobart, Indiana. Despite warning from management, the agents decided to walk-off their job rather than make telemarketing calls using False Attacks scripts against Sen. Barack Obama.

They were given a choice to either go with the script & read it or leave. About 40 agents decided to walk-off.

According to the report, the agents were then all fired by the company.

The script had attacked Obama for being "dangerously weak on crime,""coddling criminals," and for voting against "protecting children from danger."

For these regular folks to risk their jobs especially during these tough & uncertain economic challenges is truly touching. My heart goes out to these fellow americans.

When I think of Indiana as being one of the highest unemployment states in the country, it took a lot of courage for a whole group of co-workers to do what they did.

This was their own personal way of fighting back against swifboating by the Republican Party.

I hope someone notifies the Obama campaign of what these workers just did. I'm sure Sen. Barack Obama would like to acknowledge them publicly. Not many people would have done this especially when we are going through the worst economic crisis since the great depression.

Breaking: McCain Manager confirms: Will Attack Obama on Rev. Wright in last two weeks!

Somehow most of us knew that this was eventually going to happen. Well its here. McCain campaign manager Rick Davis just confirmed their campaign's decision to RECONSIDER their earlier opposition to using controversial figure Reverand Jeremiah Wright.

My fellow democrats, its time to buckle-up for the ride. Senator John McCain has decided to go Racial big-time. This could potentially be an very ugly last two weeks.

I am confident that the Obama campaign already expected this event from happening & have contingency plans in place. The response from the entire Democratic Party should be LOUD, SWIFT, & MASSIVE. This is when raising $ 150 million will come in handy.

I expect virtually the entire Democratic elected officials led by  Senators,Governors & House members together with the media to immediately condemn any Wright attacks.

After John Kerry's swiftboating, NEVER AGAIN!

Here's a quote from Mr. Davis from his interview with  radio host Hugh Hewitt.

"Said Davis: "Look, John McCain has told us a long time ago before this campaign ever got started, back in May, I think, that from his perspective, he was not going to have his campaign actively involved in using Jeremiah Wright as a wedge in this campaign. Now since then, I must say, when Congressman Lewis calls John McCain and Sarah Palin and his entire group of supporters, fifty million people strong around this country, that we're all racists and we should be compared to George Wallace and the kind of horrible segregation and evil and horrible politics that was played at that time, you know, that you've got to rethink all these things. And so I think we're in the process of looking at how we're going to close this campaign. We've got 19 days, and we're taking serious all these issues."

Obama draws his Largest Rally Ever at 100,000 today !

Awesome news & hopefully a very telling sign for November.

St. Louis, Missouri has just announced that 100,000 are in attendance in Sen. Barack Obama's rally today.

This would be Senator Obama's Largest Rally ever in the United States. This would surpass the 80,000 attendance that graced his Invesco Field Acceptance speech.

It would also be the largest political rally in the state of Missouri.

Obama's previous largest audience was the 200,000 rally at Berlin, Germany.

CNN also stated that this is a very good sign for the Obama campaign. To get 100,000 just over two weeks away from election day is nothing but good news.

People are mad,angry,concerned & ready for Real Change!

Go Obama!

Bill & Hillary Launch Campaign Swing for Obama

Some really great news !

As we are headed to the home stretch of the 2008 Presidential campaign, the Clinton's are launching a multi-state campaign through battleground states for Senator Barack Obama.

Former President Bill Clinton & Senator Hillary Clinton will take center stage on Sunday in Scranton, PA together with VP candidate Senator Joe Biden.

After the Scranton rally, the Clinton's will take separate routes through battleground states in support of Senator Barack Obama. They will also campaign for Senate & House democratic candidates across the country.

Bill Clinton will then be campaigning in Richmond and Roanoke,Virginia. He then proceeds to campaign in the two battleground states of Ohio & Nevada. He carried both states in 1992 & 1996. Hillary Clinton also remains popular in these two states.

While Hillary Clinton's campaign schedule after Scranton, PA includes the battlground states of Florida, Ohio,Minnesota & Omaha, Nebraska. ( Hillary in Nebraska ! Wow- Obama must be really close in getting that 1 electoral vote in the district)

Bill Clinton was also in Florida earlier this week while Hillary Clinton campaign in Little Rock, Arkansas last Friday.

Senator Clinton also gave radio interviews in North Carolina & Spanish stations in Florida on behalf of Senator Obama. She also launched a Women's get out the vote by phone in Wisconsion.

Senator Clinton has headline more than 50 events for Barack Obama in the last 60 days & has raised over $10 million dollars for the Obama campaign.

This is just awesome news for Senator Obama & the democratic party. While the big dogs Bill & Hillary are going all out for Obama, John McCain is doing everything to stay away from the Bush family.

Just like Georgia & West Virginia, I would not be surprised if Obama closes the gap in Arkansas. The Arkansas Governor & two Senators are also spending time campaigning for Senator Obama.

Go Go Obama ! We are now about the enter the last 3 weeks !!!

Here We Go Again! Vote Purgin in Battleground States

Illegal Vote Purging is once again happening as reported by both the NY Times & MSNBC. What's even more disturbing is where it is taking place. Tens of thousands of voters, particulary new voters,  have been illegally purged in at least 6 key battleground states. With about 3 weeks to go before election day, how in the world can they resolve this & put these voters back on the list.

As the NY Times correctly states,  This no doubt hurts democrats much more due to the fact that we have such a huge amount of new registered voters.

This crap happens every single time especially when the Republican party senses defeat. Unbelievable!

I hope the Obama campaign in coordination with State Democratic officials can do something about this ASAP.

November BLOWOUT Very Possible ! Republicans/Clintonistas Agree

From Politico, to ABC yesterday, CNN today, & the NY Daily News Sunday edition. Finally, the mainstream media is starting to forecast what millions of Clintonistas have been saying this entire primary season.

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/050 8/10585.html

Now that we pretty much have a nominee in Sen. Barack Obama, many in the MSM can now report what more than half of all registered democrats have been saying for the past 6 months.

By the way, this is Totally Unacceptable. A damaged and weakened Republican party with historical record high disapproval ratings still winning the Presidential race in November.

The Old Liberal Democrat party elders should be held fully accountable if this should occur in November. To annoint a nominee that received less registered democratic votes will have big repercussions if our party goes down in defeat in November.

Especially when All Accounts show that the "woman" democrat would defeat the Republican McCain by winning a landslide 300+ electoral votes.

Instead, what is ABC,CNN,Politico, & NY Daily news reporting?

" Sen. John McCain could win in November by an electoral college blowout. It would be a huge Republican Presidential win. Much bigger than the 35 electoral margin that carried President Bush over Kerry in 2004. It would mark a return to the 80's  formula. While Democrats do well in local House races & increase their margins, we would once again lose the national race."

This is a very heavy price to pay of the sake of making racial history. Too big a price for the next 4 years.

By late October, please do not be surprised when John McCain is polling at 300 - 320 electoral votes.

Having a close national popular vote means nothing. Absolutely nothing. City after city, urban area after urban area can come out in record numbers in November. All that will do is keep the Chicago Democrat competitive in the popular vote.

But the only one that matters, the Electoral votes will be a totally different picture.

This should be the finally straw at the credibility of many so called " Left of Center netroots leaders" like Kos.

Michelle Whitedove is Adamant - Its Hillary Clinton !

Since I read several diaries on Michelle Whitedove on Mydd & Dailykos in the last 90 days, let me give the followers of Michelle an Update on what she just posted on her website two days after Indiana/North Carolina primary.

This is Ms. Whitedove's response to the over 4,275 emails that she received the day after the Indiana/North Carolina primary.

Ms. Whitedove's was on CBS,CNN,FOX, HBO, PBS & Montel the whole of last week giving her predictions.

P.S. Michelle gained popularity by having predicted accurately the last 5 Presidential elections for both the GE & the Primary between 8 to 12 months before the actual primaries even started.

She was also named in January by Lifetime Television & HBO as the best american in the business. She beat out 37 of the best in america on live tv on her accuracy.

Here's her response to all the emails.

With Obama, its a BLOWOUT either way

I am now in total agreement with several major political pundits like Dee Dee Myers, Pat Buchanan, Al Hunt, & Dick Morris regarding the GE chances of Sen. Barack Obama as the Democratic nominee in November.

First of all, Democrats as a party go into November 2008 with a big advantage never seen by either party since Reagan in 1984.

In fact, any other conventional democratic candidate whether Dodd, Biden, H. Clinton, Clark, Bayh, Edwards, Gore & even Kerry would be "HEAVILY" favored to win it all in November 2008.

Worse Economy, Worse war since Vietnam, worse Gas Prices since the 70's, highest foreclosures & job losses in two decades.

Its an Almost Perfect Scenario for the political opposition. In this case, the democrats.

This is probably as sure as any democrat will ever get. As close to Reagan's win over Mondale.

But will all that said, it looks like the democratic party has decided to go with the "Most Unconvention Candidate" ever in U.S. presidential history.

These pundits have said.... Make No Mistake about it....

With Obama as the Democratic nominee...

This Presidential election for 2008 with Obama as the nominee  would turn this race into a REFERENDUM on Barack Obama. ( Most voters unless you're a die hard Bush Republican have already made their own conclusions about the failure of the Bush Presidency)

With the Unconventional Indentity wrapped politics of Obama, the only question for November is if american voters would vote for a candidate who is virtually unknown,untested, very little experience, an african-american liberal with an unsual name Barack Hussein Obama, but offers a Brand New promise of a New Kind of politics & hope.

Or, do they go with the safe, traditional candidate in the old, very experienced, independent minded John McCain.

It does not matter if you are a die hard Obama fan. One thing every democrat can agree on is the Obama candidacy in November would without a doubt be the "Highest Risk" taken of any democratic candidate in our bench.

Why take the risky candidate & gamble when we are heavily favored to win ? I don't know. Don't ask me why. Ask Nancy Pelosi &  Ted Kennedy.

Why Most Risky? Well, the obvious...

a) Very Thin Resume ( even thinner than George W. Bush)
b) to his uncommon non-western name of Barack Hussein Obama
c) to his roots of growing up with a father & step father who are muslim ( with the U.S. being at war with two muslim nations)
d) to his Race as an African-American
e) to his less explored past since he is virtually a rookie in the national political stage

Can he win in November? Oh Absolutely ! Any candidate that Democrats field in November will have a fair shot at winning it all. The odds are just simply stacked against the GOP today.

But can he also lose ? Oh extremely possible! Can he end up losing by a big margin particularly in the Electoral college? Of course, very very possible.

Since Obama will be an unconventional candidate never seen before, anything unconventional happening is very possible.

See, with the conventional democratic candidates, this November will be Much More about the Bush Record & the Republican Party. The GOP will be at the defensive.

But with Obama, this election will be much more about Barack Obama himself rather than McCain or Bush.

Most if not all americans know who McCain is. Millions of americans have seen & followed him over the many years of his service.

The prediction that I have is in agreement with the pundits I mentioned above :

Obama will either win Big across america & carry not only blue states but  carry states like Iowa, Colorado, Virginia, & Missouri.

OR

Obama will lose by an electoral landslide in November. He would lose even traditional Blue states like PA,NJ,NH,MA combined with being swept om battleground states like OH,FL,NM,NV,IA,WI,MN,CO.

It would be either a blowout win or a blowout loss with Obama as the head of the ticket.

It would either be a Bill Clinton 1996 type of electoral college victory  or a 1988 Michael Dukakis type of electoral massive landslide defeat.

This won't be a close electoral college election either way.

Either places like NJ,PA,MA,,MO,NM, NH,IA,CO,VA All go for Obama on election night & we celebrate the biggest victory for Democrats in many decades OR we just Paid the Most Expensive Price ever as a political party for the sake of making history by nominating the 1st black person.

Either way, our party will never be the same again after the 2008 Sen. Obama show.

75% of Democrats in office are qualified to be President

If indeed the "Old Liberal Guards" Jesse Jackson, Ted Kennedy, Nancy Pelosi & John Kerry have their way & ensure a Barack Obama nomination, congratulations to 75% of All democratic elected officials.

To All the Democratic Mayors in all 50 states, to All Councilors in every town & county in america, to State Senators in State Legislatures across the country, to assembly members in Upper & Lower state houses- YES, you are all hereby Qualified to be the Next President of the United States.

This is the real tragedy when Affirmative Action is officially extended to the Highest Office in the land.

Where else in America would you find a first time Senatorial Candidate being allowed to give a KEY NOTE address to a National Party Convention?

Yes, Congratulations. 75% of All Democrats in Federal, State & Local levels are now qualified to be President of the United States of America.

Thanks to the Barack Obama rule.

This is no different than a young & rising NBA star Chris Paul or Dwayne Wade being rushed to the Hall of Fame & join the ranks of Magic Johnson & Michael Jordan without the achievements or track record to speak of.

When a country is currently facing the worse economic, international & domestic problems, what do the liberal guards of our party do.

They nominate a candidate who is even less qualified than the current occupant of the white house.

Then 2000 Texas Governor George W. Bush was much more qualified than 2008 Illinois Senator Barack Obama.

( I wonder what happened to the thousands upon thousands of Kossacks & Mydd'ers ALL CALLING BUSH unqualified to be President back in 2000?

The only difference today? The rookie has a D next to his name.

Is our loyalty to our political party or to country ?

What's more important???  Practicing Affirmative Action or electing a politician who is tested & qualified to handle all these problems.

No wonder so many Latino Immigrants & Asian Immigrants have no intention of supporting Barack Obama in the Fall. Its all about values, meritocracy & being truly qualified.

Affirmative action was meant to protect citizens from discrimination. It was never meant to attempt to elect a person of color who is clearly not qualified to be President.

Giving exceptional & touching speeches is beatiful. Having graduated from an IVY League schools & being a lawyer is impressive.

But if that was the only qualification for being President, we have hundreds of young white,black, asian, jewish & latino democrats across america who would have those same qualifications.

Let me be the one of many of will repeat this 2008 prediction if Barack Obama is the nominee.

"2008 will be the lowest support for the Democratic presidential candidate in over 20 years among Jewish, Asian, Latino, Seniors & Whites. PERIOD!
And for the first time in two decades, a Republican John McCain will carry the White, Latino & Asian vote combined. It will also be the 1st Republican Presidential candidate to win over 40% of the Jewish vote."

Let's all talk on November 5th & see how the Massive Landslide defeat came about.

And I pray to God that Jerome Armstrong says to Markos & Bowers  " I Told you so "

This will be one UGLY November!

May John Kerry & Nancy Pelosi resign from their leadership role after November.
