The Stars Seem To Be Aligning Against Barack Obama
Huliq News ^ | August 18, 2008

Posted on 08/18/2008 6:25:25 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

The Politico brings the results from the NBC News/Wall Street Journal Poll about Barack Obama, John McCain and the U.S. Elections of 2008:

July's NBC News/Wall Street Journal Poll found that three in four Americans believe McCain can "handle" the role of commander in chief, while only 19 percent said he "cannot," compared to a 50 percent to 42 percent split for Obama.

When asked which party is more capable of "dealing with the war on terrorism," 40 percent of respondents to the latest NBC/WSJ poll said Republican while 29 percent said Democrat. The parties had been effectively tied as recently as January of this year, and the 11-percentage-point gap is the largest since 2004, the last year these numbers shifted so dramatically and, not coincidentally, the last presidential election year.

No big surprise that the Republican presumptive nominee has the lead on national security issues, but the gap he has opened against Obama is large and recent events involving Russia-Georgia will highlight McCain's experience and the public's trust in him, even more.

Furthermore it seems the stars are aligning against Barack Obama in other areas.

His spectacular failure at the Saddleback Church as well as McCain's showing how better prepared he is, is working against Obama.

Obama's campaign also busted on Obama's support for infanticide is not going to help him either. He is being nailed on all sides of that issue.

Hillary Clinton supporters, 18 percent of them, say they will vote for John McCain and Lady de Rothschild, one of Britain’s most influential political hostesses, speaks out against Obama publicly again.

Gallup shows that all this negative news about Obama, with other events, he has lost the small lead he once had over John McCain.

Gallup Poll Daily tracking for Aug. 14-16 finds John McCain and Barack Obama tied at 45% in the latest presidential election trial heat.

The race has tightened over the past several days with Obama's modest advantage over McCain disappearing. (To view the complete trend since March 7, 2008, click here.) Registered voters' preferences appear quite stable at the moment -- in the last five individual days of Gallup tracking polling, the candidates have been closely matched with neither candidate holding more than a two percentage point advantage on any day.

McCain has also pulled even in Ohio.

To be hemorrhaging this way, this close to the Democratic convention, does not bode well for Obama nor the Democrats.

To top it off, I just received an email showing that the National Black Republican Association wants to place 50 billboards all over the City of Denver, while the Democratic Party is having their national convention there.

This is a campaign like no other. With your help, we will put up 50 - that's right - 50 "Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican" billboards all over the City of Denver, while the Democratic Party is having their national convention there.

What a way to upset the "coronation" of the Democratic Party's "messianic" presidential nominee, Sen. Barack Obama. Arrogant is the word for Obama, a far left-winger, who is attempting to assume the mantle of Dr. King by giving his political acceptance speech on the anniversary of Dr. King's "I Have a Dream" inspirational civil rights speech. History shows that Dr. King was a minister who embraced the traditional values that made our country great. Obama has the most liberal voting record in the US Senate. Obama is no MLK.

The stars are aligning and it looks like they are starting to favor John McCain....nothing like waiting for the last minute to make things interesting huh?

50 billboards?! That's going to make the democrats squirm.

I think John & Jane Q. Public are finally back from vacation, getting the kids ready for school and starting to pay attention to this interminable election cycle, and they don't like what they hear when they listen to him.

Now the Left and the OHB Media are sniveling about McCain 'cheating', and not, in Andrea Mitchell's word's 'staying in the Cone of Silence'.

These people are such sore losers.

Barack Obama seems to be aligning against Barack Obama. This supposedly great silver-tounged orator comes off as a total retard every time he opens his yap.

When Barack Henry Obama is four points down going into the Convention, are the Supers going to go down with the ship, or make the switch to Hillary? Or Algore? Or a Donk To Be Named Later?

If Bambi is down next week, there is no way he will win in November.

Interesting article, but the reference to Britain’s Lady de Rothschild seemed out of place. The same can be said for the rest of Europe’s opinion about the election.

Enough will switch for there to be a brokered convention.

In Iowa where it all started, WHO Des Moines (Reagan's Alma Mater) afternoon host Steve Deace spent two hours charbroiling Hussein as a babykiller.

Backing up the steamroller and rolling over the spouter of "least of these" again and again.

Deace is the voice of the Huckabee supporters, the loudest of the loud evangelicals.

Rush today made a point (as did Mike Gallagher and Dennis Prager) of saying the life vs. abortion issue is a winner for Republicans and one which the Democrats don't want.

The papier mache Bamzilla has been left out in the rain. It took so long for Soros and Axelrod to bake it, they don't think that they can take it, and they'll never have that recipe again.

Something about Calypso Louie's Mother Ship and the Number Nineteen--when Polarik and Texas Dude said Obama was alien, I thought they meant he was at least terrestrial.

He runs with Kermit on a Little Green Men ticket.

“Rush today made a point (as did Mike Gallagher and Dennis Prager) of saying the life vs. abortion issue is a winner for Republicans ....”

Perhaps with the religious right. This is one issue I’ve stayed well away from here but I don’t think there’s any better way of alienating women than trying to legislate their reproductive freedom. This is one genie which is well and truly out of the bottle. McCain has his beliefs and he’s well and truly entitled to them but if he makes any serious noises about coercing people to comply with his view it could force people who prefer him in all other respects to vote against him. I realise that this issue is passionately felt here but you must understand that the right to make your own decision is equally passionately felt by a vast number of women.

Saving innocent lives isn't coercion. Preventing the homicide of a human being isn't coercion.

Nonsense, no President or legislator can coerce a women to have a child she “passionately” does not want.

From the dawn of time women who “passionately” want to kill their child, have done so, and will always find a way to do so.

And if a women “passionately” against raising a child, she can give the baby up for adoption.

Even better, modern American women should ck their “passion” at the door, take their big-girl pill, and carefully use birth control or remain abstinent.

I used the word “passionately” only in the sense of having the right to make their own decision, whatever that might be.

“Even better, modern American women should ck their “passion” at the door, take their big-girl pill, and carefully use birth control or remain abstinent. “

Completely agree.

Any woman who favors legal abortion is morally and/or intellectually lost and isn’t within the GOP’s reach in the first place. Pro-life is actually a winning issue for Republicans, which is why the Dems are trying to fudge their position on the issue.

I understand, but it is time for women to grow up about abortion, the “making my own decision” plea rings hollow in modern America. It sounds like a title to a college paper.

With the advancement of medical science, knowledge and proof of life in the womb, birth control, education and our abilities to make a living on our own, there is no longer any excuse (save a criminal act), for having an abortion.

It does seem like the tide is turning. Also the early unintentional slip by one of Obama’s aides of his VP selection.

It’s not that McCain is so great, it’s that Obama is totally unsupportable. Once again the great Dem “geniuses” got suckered by socialist. I suppose they thought because Obama had far more charisma than George McGovern (who had the charisma of a turnip), he’d be a shoo-in despite his radical, socialist past (and present). Wrong move.

The same opinion as my wife and myself. Without a script Obama sounds about as smart as a fifth-grader.

During the Democratic primaries in 1976, Jimmy Carter got a big endorsement from the Rev. Martin Luther King, Sr., "Daddy King." I remember liberals dismissing that as not important because Daddy King was a Republican.
