<quoted text>much of the damage to obama's campaign you have pointed out are due to the media who don't want him to become president to begin with. they have gone out of their way to check into and dig up dirt on anyone he has associated with in his pass. also if the statements obama made about small town pennsylvanians are elitist then so are the media and others on this forum who are criticising black people for voting for him by hugh numbers, have it occured to any of you people that blacks, young and new voters as well as SOME WHITES honestly believe obama to be the best man for the job?? also when hillary had blowout wins in west virginia and kentucky by percentages of 41% & 30 this was delivered by the "hard working white class" so why the hypocrisy??? finally obama will be just fine as president with smart experienced and intelligent people around him to go with his own natural judgement and intelligence.
The media has been bashing Obama? Are you kidding? They have been bashing Hillary! Most of the media has portrayed Hillary as the villian throughout this race and showing more slanted acceptance of Obama.

As far as West Virginia ( or Kentucky) showing overwhelming support for Hillary, it was nowhere near 92%. And has it occurred to you that Hillary has that support because of Bill? They loved Bill Clinton in West Virginia! Furthermore, Obama did not even campaign there ( nor in Ky)...that was his decision and his loss...don't blame that on racism! What did he have so important to do during those primaries, where he couldn't campaign? I believe he was shooting pool at a bar for WV primaries, and set up camp in Oregan for Ky primaries. I believe he already knew he was going to lose, so he didn't fight. Hillary is a true fighter! Most of West Virginians are scrappers and fighters ( Irish decendency) and truly admired Hillary for her relentless fight to the end.

As far as digging up dirt, that is going to happen to every candidate. It is NOT UNFAIR to bring up dirt on Obama, because they do it to everyone. Obama supporters no matter what, are going to use the proverbial race card, win or lose.

And again, I do not remember at any time during a primary or election, has ANY candidate received 92% popular vote from a given group of people...it is truly unprecedented.

I have seen this slogan before on this forum and I like it:

" Voting for Obama just because he is black is just as bad as NOT voting for Obama just because he is black"

that was kind of funny......in acutallity, if gas prices continue to rise, we will be like a 3rd world country before November elections. That is the majority of us with the exclusion of the Bush family and others that have a personal stock and are benefiting from these high prices. People that can think for themselves will choose who THEY think will make the best president,,,,,,,good try though.

If this was about selecting a new coach for a Major League Baseball team instead of voting for a candidate to become the next President of the United States people would choose a well experienced person. Who, in their right mind, would pick a Little League coach with one season of experience behind him, to coach a Major Team, like the Red Sox? No one! Right?
Still, too many American seem hell bent on selecting an amateur President to run our Major League Country. The joke for the last 8 years has been about the amateurism of George W. Bush but in comparison with Barry Hussein Obama he is a seasoned pro. If Obama becomes president he will coach this country into a Third Rate, Third World Nation. Like Mugabe in Zimbabwe - who after the brilliant Ian Smith, inherited a country that was the riches in Africa and self sufficient in food and energy but has under the rule of Mugabe become the poorest nation in the world – Obama will lead this wonderful country of ours down that well trodden path where an endless parade of pan-Marxist African leaders have gone before.
Some people fear that the U.S. will become the Brazil of the northern hemisphere under the leadership of Obama.
What shall one do to prevent such an outcome? Take to the hills and defend the Constitution?
Join a militia? Vote to cede from the Union?

Let me get my 2 cents in. I am a black male who must be one of the few (8%) who does not agree that Obama is the best candidate. I have to admit, I would love to see a brother in the White House, but come on now. Obama is not going to look out for the black man. He is going to do what it takes ( whatever it takes) to ensure his success in politics. He is young and has a long journey ahead of him. He is looking out for number 1. And I don't blame him. All of these blacks voting for him are going to be expecting miracles which are not going to happen and then they are going to "flip the script" and call him " Uncle Tom", " a sell-out", and " Half-breed". You see what he did severing ties with his pastor and friend for 20 years. All of this "change" he talks about is his "change"....how his life will change. You mark my words and see! I am not sure who I will vote for, but I am not convinced Obama is the man for the job. I have been very careful who I declare as a favorite, because I don't want to be lumped in with that 92% who are going to labeled as voting skin color not ideals. Have you all seen him stumble in the debates? Or have you even seen him debate?

By the way, no politician is going to "change" your life. Individually, you need to promote change yourself. You need to get a good education, make good decisions with your money and invest, and quit blaming others for your misfortunes. I am a very successful investor, but I never blamed anyone. I don't give anyone else credit for what I have accomplished either. I did it on my own, and any of you other blacks out there always wanting to blame the white man for holding you down could do the same thing.

West Virginia and Kentucky did not have 92% vote for Hillary. 92% of any population agreeing on one candidate is definitely unprecedented and suspicious. I am sure that some of the voters in West Virginia, Kentucky and just about every state in this country cast their vote for Hillary as opposed for Obama because of racial reasons. To not think that racial bias does not occur, is naive. However, the majority of voters in West Virginia support Hillary because of Bill. Bill has demonstrated through two terms that he supports what they believe and that is support for the blue-collar working man. They truly believe Hillary will walk in his footsteps. They believe in her, and not just because she is white. I am from West Virginia myself. My wife is black, so I am not anywhere near racist. Many of my family, friends, and former neighbors voted for Hillary for the reasons I mentioned above. Obama did not spend anytime at all in West Virginia, nor Kentucky. So what do you expect? He shows an elitist view of the white working man, which was demonstrated by his insensitive remarks in Pennsylvania.
By the way, John Kerry, nor Al Gore won support from West Virginia. Are they light-skinned blacks and I am not aware of this?
I noticed in another thread, you dogged Hillary out comparing her to Pinnochio. In other threads, you have made the claim that she is a worthy opponent and that you have respect for her. In one thread you said you didn't care who won, just so they ironed out the problems of the world. So, do you change your positions regularly? And why are you hating on Hillary so much when Bill was in office, blacks flocked to the polls voting for the Clintons? I truly believe that if Obama was not in the picture, Hillary would be the model candidate, rather than a Walt Disney character. I also believe that if Obama was known to be the anti-christ, it wouldn't matter. 92% blacks do not care who the candidate is, or what they stand for, just the fact that a black candidate gets a shot. Why do blacks continuously defend other blacks who are obviously wrong?( Michael Vick, OJ, Barry Bonds, Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, etc.) You can't defend someone who is wrong.
Wright is wrong. If you visit his webpage, it is full of black power and black superiority. That is racism. You can't right wrongs with wrongs. You can't fight racism with racism. You can't fight white power with black power. Obama was knowledgeable of his preachings for 20 years. You can't denounce something that you did not denounce for 20 years prior to, otherwise it looks transparent and politically motivated. My wife, who is black, notices the same things I do about him, and that is why she voted Hillary. Me and my wife met a black woman who knows Hillary and Bill personally and she said she is the real deal and has helped her numerous times buying her groceries when she needed them. I doubt very seriously that Obama nor Michelle would do this. Obama will not look out for blacks, but only himself. That is obvious with him denouncing his 20 year friendship with Wright. And Wright is pissed about that too.
Don't you all get it! The Rev Wright was paid and planted to say what he said, by guess who???? Hillary and Bill!! He did what he was supposed to do by their standards, throw OBAMA off track. But they'll find out it won't work, you know why? Because GOD is in the plan.

So you just admitted you are voting for Obama because he is black!
I am not voting against a black man, I am voting FOR HILLARY. If there was a better candidate, or if Hillary was a black woman, I would vote for a black candidate. Actually, I was leaning toward Obama when I first learned he was running. But what really threw me off his scent was his inability to debate. He is simply not experienced enough in politics, nor foreign affairs.

If President Palmer ( from 24) was running, I would be GoPalmer instead of GoHillary. Black, white, woman, man...it makes no difference to me. But Obama has not impressed me at all. Did you even watch any of the debates?

Voting for Obama because he is black is just as wrong as not voting for Obama because he is black.

So if Obama was not even in the picture, would Hillary all of the sudden look like the model candidate? Bill was affectionately referred to as the "first black president". So why are you all turning your backs on the Clintons and dogging them out just because an "unproven", green rookie comes along and provokes all of this "black power" frenzy, when he is NOT going to be looking out for you! He is going to greatly disappoint the blacks who supported him and you all will flip on him just like you have flipped on the Clintons. Then, of course, you will come back running to Hillary in 2012!

I think if Obama wins over Hillary, McCain will beat OBama, because all Hillary voters will vote for McCain instead of Obama.

I as a black man will not vote for Obama. He is one racial son of a b_tch and I'm not afraid to admit that.

It is sad to say that the majority of the black people are voting for him because he is black, not because they feel he is the better of the two. They see that "oh we will vote for the non white person", he will look out for us". That is so Bullsh_t! Wake up people, you are part of the problem.

I can't tell you how many times I have been called a sell-out because I've said that I am not certain I will vote for Obama. I am waiting for a Democratic nominee to be declared so we can get on with the debates dealing with real issues. I don't care who either has for a pastor, what their favorite color is.......just tell me how you plan to bail this failing country out of the mess we are in, fix the health care issues, fix the failing housing market.......the kind of things that matter and affects us all regardless of what color our skin is. If it should be Obama, God bless him....If it should be Mcain God bles him as well, but God help us all!

Copperlady, you know one thing that I learned about you and your post is that you are a disgrace to the black community. You are so prejudice in all your forums when it comes to putting blame on the white person, instead of putting the real blame on the black man when he is at fault. You have never gave any compliments to another nationality, or a person who wasn't black.
Here you go again running off your mouth as always, because I'm not white, and I'm not even married to someone who is white. My wife and I are both black, stationed on Fort Jackson, work at the hospital.
Since you like to talk trash to someone on this forum, why don't you come meet my wife and temp to talk like this to her. If you can't get on base, why don't you tell us where you are located and we can meet you.

FYI - If Obama was white, he still wouldn't get my vote, because he is full of sh_t and can't be trusted. I won't vote for him and I won't vote for Hillary.

Now, having failed at hindering recruiting, the Democrats want to undermine reenlistment by adding an incentive for troops to get out of the military after their first enlistment to get a richer education benefit. Of course, the media doesn’t explain that to the public. They frame it in terms that make Republicans appear opposed to the troops (CNN link);

The new GI Bill being debated in Congress would expand education benefits for veterans who served at least three years in the military after the September 11, 2001, attacks.

The bill’s main sponsor, Sen. Jim Webb, is a Virginia Democrat and, like McCain, a Vietnam War veteran. The Senate passed Webb’s bill 75-22 last week. McCain was not in Washington for the vote.

Barack Obama used the same framing this weekend;

“I revere our soldiers and want to make sure they are being treated with honor and respect,” Obama said Saturday.“I think the GI Bill is one way for us to do that, and I hope that John McCain and George Bush decide they believe the same thing.”

This is cheap election year politics designed to undermine the war effort under the guise of supporting the troops - it’s a way to force the Republicans to enact a Stop-Loss program to prevent hemorrhaging combat-experienced junior NCOs and make them even less popular.

The New York Times, the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party, tried to lie about the Administration this weekend, but the Administration shot back (Washington Times link);

“This editorial could not be farther from the truth about the President’s record of leadership on this issue,” the White House said, adding that Mr. Bush asked Congress to address allowing service members to transfer their GI Bill benefits to their spouses and children, and to expand service members’ access to child care, among other benefits.

“The President specifically supports the GI Bill legislation expansion proposed by Senators [Lindsey] Graham,[Richard M.] Burr, and [John] McCain because it allows for the transferability of education benefits and calibrates an increase in education benefits to time in the service,” the White House said.“Though readers of the New York Times editorial page wouldn’t know it, President Bush looks forward to signing a GI bill that supports our troops and their families.”

The New York Times did not respond to a request for a response to the White House’s criticism.

Of course they didn’t respond - they have nothing to say. The New York Times hopes the controversy disappears. The troops know that when Democrats do something for them, there’s a political angle, a political benefit for the Democrats. Democrats don’t do things solely for the troops anymore.
