Obama leads in Florida

46 to 44 percent. It's tight, but compared to where he was just a month ago--he's made up a lot of ground.

All McSame has left is fear and smear. None of his new ads have anything on what McSame will do once in office, (hint--more of the same), so they all smear Obama. We tried 1.3 trillion tax cuts for the wealthy and big oil. We tried spurning all our allies and going it alone on the war on terror. We tried running a war by ourselves--breaking our military and our budget.

We tried the GOP way for the past seven years. How has that worked out for you? There is not an issue that Bush hasn't f***ed up. How much worse can things get?

Don't fear change, because we desperately need it!! Florida, don't let me down...

Outrageous Attack Ad. So much for Honor, Mr. McCain.

John McSame is one desperate somma bitch.

Obama had the most successful visit to the Middle East and Europe, including an electrifying speech that captivated the largest audience ever for an American politician. (It was nice to see Europe waving American flags again.)

So McComplain decided to resort to the Rovian GOP playbook--smear. His latest ad launches a false attack against Barack Obama for "ignoring our troops" to play basketball. Nevermind that it actually includes footage of Barack Obama playing basketball with our troops on his recent trip to Kuwait, in order to make its point. And nevermind that he visited wounded troops in Iraq.

It was the Pentagon that pulled the plug on the hospital visit. They claimed that this was not only "inappropriate", but violated DoD rules. The Pentagon spokesman even quoted Obama advisor Gibbs a DoD regulation about campaign staff visiting a hospital.

Rather than going back and forth on whether his own presence was a campaign event, and subjecting the wounded troops to this mess, he agreed to cancel. Three weeks ago, it was fine.

This was a no win situation for Obama. If he fought the Pentagon, he would be attacked for not listening to DoD leaders and using wounded troops as a campaign prop. If he respected the Pentagon's wishes, --well, you can see the fallout.

John Mccain has no trouble, however, using the troops as a political football. But just keep in mind, it was JOHN MCCAIN that stood with George Bush in opposing our new GI Bill.

Someone else put it better than me:

...a bill that was supported overwhelmingly by Democrats and Republicans alike, and meant to give our returning men and women all the benefits they deserve. John Mccain said it was "too generous".

Barack Obama stood with our troops. John Mccain stood with George Bush.

I love you Barack, but it's time to quit playing nice. McSame has nothing to run on, so he is resorting to smears. All of his new ads are extremely negative, and they get more extreme and more false each cycle. Apparently, you personally are to blame for the high gas prices-- (the administration with the most oil executives ever, however, has nothing to do with it). And apparently, you hate wounded troops.

McCain no longer deserves to have the word "honorable" before his name.

Soft on Obama? CBS never covered for him!

If Obama made half of the ignorant statements that John McCain made on Iraq, he would have been laughed off months ago as being naive. It is John McCain who keeps confusing the Sunni and the Shia, it is John McCain who doesn't know who is in charge in Iraq, it is John McCain that called Al-Qaeda a radical Shitte group, and it is John McCain who doenn't even know when the surge began.

And it is CBS who covered it up. They edited out his complete misstatement and substituted it with an answer to another question:

See for yourself:

Whistleblower: Diebold Rigged GA Election

Click here to see the description of Seminole's voting apparatus. Verfied voting lists county by county and state by state what everyone does and if there is a verified paper trail, audits, etc.

Of course, we use the untrustworthy Diebold.

A whistle-blower has come forward with a shocking allegation of election tampering. This isn't some fruitcake. The whistleblower is one of the most prominent cyber-security experts in the country who has appeared on both CNN and ABC News. He is also a prominent Republican who served as a McCain advisor. But at an Ohio press conference last Thursday, he presented fresh evidence against Diebold regarding election fraud.

Freedom of Speech Does Not Apply to McCain/Bush


You are allowed to protest in a public place. Period. The 61-year old librarian was arrested for simply holding a sign that said "McCain=Bush".

(What does it say that the GOP considers that statement an attack on McCain. Hmmm.)

Don't believe me? Watch this:

America will return 1-20-09.

Happy Fourth of July!! Hang in there America!

These dark times will serve as history's reminder to never again allow a manipulated moron to lead our great nation. On January 20, 2009, an era of healing will begin as the Democratic Congress, with President Obama, will finally be able to undo the damage caused by GOP rule.

God Bless America!!

Must Win States for Obama

We did McCain last time. (Scroll down to see the map). McCain is certainly the underdog in this campaign. I focused on 5 battleground states that he would be wise to focus on. The main difference here is that Obama has vast sums of money to spend, whereas McCain is heavily relying on the RNC to make up the slack. McCain can only really afford to spend his money in a few key areas. Obama, on the other hand, has set up shop in all 50 states. He is pouring money to run advertisements in states he has become competitive but will likely lose, such as Georgia. His strategy seems to be the same for McCain as it was for Hillary: bankrupt the opponent by forcing them to play defense in favored but competitive states.

Obama can afford to spend money to build networks and run ads in every battleground state--as he should. If I was a McCainiac, I would tell John to focus hard on the 5 states he needs desperately to win. If I was an Obama-mite, I would say, well, keep doing what you are doing.

Nonetheless, here are the states in order I think Obama should focus on.

1/2 Wisconsin and Minnesota. Several polls have put Obama with massive leads recently, such as a 17-point lead in MN. Wow. I don't even think Pawlenty can help McCain now. Several of the sites I visit don't even have these two states as "toss-ups" anymore. These two are Obama's to lose. Start with 219 Electoral Votes.

2. Pennsylvania. This is the largest Democratic swing state. It didn't go blue the past few times and probably won't change in a Democratic year. McCain is making an effort, but this state has been sailing further into the Democratic column. Obama should dispatch Hillary here (and in Ohio) to really bring this state home. 240 EVs.

3. Michigan (Battleground)! I told McCain that this is one he should fight for. Putting Romney on the ticket would help. But this is one state that clearly is in a full-fledged recession. They are hurting badly and it's just too easy to tie McCain to Bush economic failures--especially since McCain hasn't said he would do much differently in this area. MI has moved from weak to moderate Obama, and Obama would be wise to see that it stays with him. Regardless, sandwiched between Ohio and Wisconsin, I predict this area of the country will be getting a lot of attention from the Obama camp. 257 EVs.

4. Colorado. Although it has been weak Obama, it hasn't budged from supporting him. This is one of the clearest flips from 2004, and the convention will only boost his chances here. 264 EVs.

5. New Hamphire. This is McCain's only real shot at picking up a Kerry state. And it's slipping fast. Right now, it is strong Obama. Again, it's Obama's to lose. 269 EVs.

To put Obama over the top, I recommend focusing on Iowa, another swing state that has consistently been favoring him. That would give Obama the presidency without even winning Ohio, Virginia and Florida. Although I really think he should fight for those in that order. And he will.
