anti-obama ad coming soon

Do we really know Barack Obama?  He's so far out of the mainstream that the national journal ranked him as the most liberal member in the U.S. Senate:

that's right
more liberal than Hillary Clinton
more liberal than John Kerry

he's even more liberal than Ted Kennedy

While in Illinois Barack Obama

* he refused to protect our children from sex shops near their schools.

*he sided with molesters over the victims of abuse

*he even refused to protect newborn babies who survived abortions

Now in Washington Barack's up to his same old liberal tricks.

Call Barack Obama and tell him, that's not the kind of "change" I want in the "white house"

this message paid for by: I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU DEMOCRATS WERE SO STUPID TO PICK THIS GUY COMMITTEE

First he's not liberal enough for you, now he's so liberal he can't possibly win the GE. Make up your goddamned minds...

Re: Give Me A Break

you've confused me with someone else.

http://www.mydd.com/story/2008/1/29/6262 8/3681#commenttop

tells you what kind of democrat I am. I'm actually trying to move Dems away from being left-wing ideologues on so many issues.

BUT

That's not the point.

The point is these are the kind of attacks, he's never encountered or withstood.

These are the kind of stories that you can count on 1 hand that have come out against him.
Hillary had to bring Resko up in a debate(?)

Politics is a war without bloodshed, and this guy somehow got this far without 1 battle.

Re: Give Me A Break
Obama is OWNED by the Corporate Owned Media.
Funny - ObamaBots can't see it.

Re: Give Me A Break

Anne: the big media conspiracy thing is reallly played.  There is a reason Reed Irvine crackpot types, and their mirror images on the left, go for this stuff.  It's stylish, feels like you're offering some mega-critique of politics, and "proof" rests under every rock you overturn...useless anecdotal crap on the whole.  I'm soo tired of your media $aavy and $ophistication.

Re: Give Me A Break
No - it's not a conspiracy. Even reporters have admitted the media has given Obama a huge pass.
Whatever it takes to create a corporate media icon.

Re: Give Me A Break

And it backfired in her face when a photo with her and Rezko showed up.  There is no way Obama has the baggage for the Repubs that Bill and Hillary have.  I do not see any Republicans in any of her ads.  Just her lying husband talking about her and McCain having a boring race. Is he talking about the same Republican party that brought us GWB and Karl Rove?

Get ready if HRC gets the nod it is going to be really nasty.

Re: Give Me A Break

Obama has TONS of baggage. The GOP just hasn't unleased it yet.

So true, so true

Do we want figth for the White House or select Obama and just hand the keys to McCain?

Conversely

Do we really need a Democratic majority in Congress,  or should we select Clinton and potentially hand lots of seats back to the Repugs? Do we really need to compete in all 50 states, or should we just select Clinton and run the same old bet-the-farm on Florida and Ohio campaign?

Re: Conversely

What evidence do you have that Obama's going to run a 50 state strategy? I've seen nothing of it down here in GA. He comes and speaks at Ebenezer. Well, that's fine but it's not a 50 state strategy. It's the same ole same ole that Kerry did in 2004.

Georgia

Well, he does have 8 field offices in the state. Presumably they're run by paid staff and volunteers. And he's on the air with ads in the state. And like you said, he comes to the state and does his stump speech. Does that count as running a campaign in Georgia?

by HatchInBrooklyn 2008-01-31 11:43AM | 0 recs
Re: Georgia

Yes, I've seen his hads. They are bad. Nothing that would inspire someone to get off the couch and go vote for him.

Kerry had offices here too during the primary. It means nothing for the general election.

Running a stump speech in the state means nothing. Like I said, it's the exact same thing Kerry did 4 years ago.

Foolish arguement

The President doesn't affect the top of the ticket.   It simply doesn't work that way.

by dpANDREWS 2008-02-04 03:41AM | 0 recs
this liberal nj story is really just a start

Obama will not be recognizable by november.

Everyone falls short on ethics, on family members, etc.

That's the point. To think Obama can give great speeches, and everyone will say, "ok, you're right, no more attack politics"

The last 8 years happened because dems didn't have a person willing to do what it took to win.

We now have that person.

President Hillary Clinton.

don't let the media take it away.

The Only Ones...

The only people who think Obama's whole platform is "no more attack politics" are myopic Hillary Clinton supporters.

Im sorry

but you are a real moron yellowdem.  You don't even realize that our margin in Congress is at great risk with the divide and conquer Rovian style strategy with the Clintons.  At the very best, she might eke out a win over McCain, but also costing us House seats.  

by Toddwell 2008-01-31 11:23AM | 0 recs
Re: Im sorry

Well, you have to admit that those Rovian tactics you decry worked well for the GOP in 2004 didn't they? You are undercutting your argument.

Who wants to vote for a wuss?

They worked horribly

At the same time Bush was getting elected, Republicans dropped close to 100 state legislative seats nationally.  It also made sure that Bush's approval rating never rose above 50% because his strategy got so many people pissed.

Re: They worked horribly

You weren't paying attention. How many senate seats did the GOP gain? How many house seats did they gain in 2004?

Not an exact analogy...
...because Obama isn't a pacifist (in a political fight or militarily) but... remember when the Brits laughed Ghandi out of India.

How'd that turn out for the royal empire?

The Dems have been trying to slug it out with Rovians for years. What happened? Well, WJC did survive being impeached.

Now, that's some kind of Pyrrhic victory.

The only way to put the Repubs back into their hole is to win with a mandate. If (and the odds are dicey) HRC wins the office, then it'll be by a narrow margin. She's just got too many negatives.

An HRC presidency would be a repeat of WJC's-- a stop gap allowing the GOP to regroup. Chances are that an Obama presidency would turn the page and put the right wing back on its heels. (Putting a stake through its black heart is too much to ask for.)

Play the long game and support Obama.

Re: Not an exact analogy...

Truly do you think thte GOP is going to lay down arms? They are not and the ones here want to run against him (Obama Osama is what they call him) because he's an easy mark. And how is Obama going to respond when he's constantly saying that the GOP is the "good guys".

by Ga6thDem 2008-01-31 11:34AM | 0 recs
A Very Active Imagination

Obama never said anything remotely close to "the GOP is the good guys," in spite of Hillary Clinton's attempt to spread that lie in a radio ad that was so dishonest it had to be taken off the air.

Re: A Very Active Imagination

In Florida - Obama only won in university-area counties.
Edwards and Hillary won in GOP northern counties.
Hillary won by large margins in military and GOP counties.

Re: A Very Active Imagination

That's not the message he's giving down here. His ad is pretty much saying that Republicans are A OK. It's his own ad that is giving that impression not anything that Hillary has done.

Re: anti-obama ad coming soon
