Skip to comments.Wisconsin Republicans Could Sway Democratic Presidential Race (should I vote for the Hildabeast?)

MADISON, Wis. -- Republicans could sway who wins the Democratic presidential primary in Wisconsin given that John McCain has all but sewn up the GOP nomination and voters are free to switch parties when casting ballots.
While party operatives and independent observers both say such crossover voting is unlikely to decide the election for one candidate or the other, they admit it does happen.
"It does leave room for mischief," said University of Wisconsin-Madison political science professor Barry Burden about the state's open primary. "The question would be whether Republican voters take advantage of that."
Wisconsin voters do not have to declare a political party in advance of voting. That means Republicans can vote in the Democratic primary and vice versa.

I think that Hillary is beatable, Obama maybe not. I want to see Hillary as the nominee.
I was just advocating this strategy in an email to a friend last night. Republicans should vote in the Dem primary and vote Hillary.
I and most Republicans I know hate Hillary much more than Obama. So do many prominent ones- you can tell Rush Limbaugh greatly prefers him.
And I don’t care enough about John McCain to engage in any analysis of which candidate would be easier for him to beat. Let him win his own election- I’d vote for Obama over Hillary just based on who I hate more- Hillary.
I second that idea. Hildabeast would be better than Obama.
I despise the clintons so much I’m thinking about switching for the Pennsylvania primary to vote against hillary. The clintons have the machine in place, I think osama/obama would be overwhelmed and would be able to be molded to a degree..
If I were to engage in a “who is easier to beat” analysis, I’d have to consider that Hillary is much stronger in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania than Obama. She beat him by 18 points in Florida and leads by 20 in the polls in Ohio and Pennsylvania. Those are obviously crucial swing states.
So it’s great for Obama that independents in Utah and Idaho prefer him to Hillary, but those states aren’t going to be in play on election day- Ohio and Pennsylvania will.
Let’s face it - they both have exceedingly bad ideas about what should be done with the country—Obama might even be a bit worse than the Beast. However, I think he would be easier to oppose and would get less enacted. She’s got the machine already in place (and those FBI files as well)
Am I the only one who can’t even look at Hillary Clinton without wanting to wring her neck? I absolutely despise that woman with a burning intensity. Especially now that she’s trying to get the Michigan delegates to count when she was the only one on the ballot!
I’d walk through 5 miles of snow to vote against her.
Bo Jangles vs. Herself, the Cold and Joyless.
A political race made in Hades.
Herself never had time to assemble an FBI file on Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., such as exists for John McCain, so obviously, there is less ammunition to use in the “opposition research”. In that event, fortify the most defenseless (i.e., McCain), by taking sides with the less contaminated of the two rivals, protected by his aura of invincibility.
The Magic Negro deserves your support at this early stage.
And who knows? If McCain loses anyway, Obama, like Harry Truman, may grow into the job. Herself never would.
Except for Duncan Hunter, all of the others in both parties work for our prevailing US business: overseas manufacturers and imports.
That said, Hillary is the one who is being installed into office as a gift to our bosses’ spoiled, domineering wives. All of the private affairs of your families will belong to them.
They defeated Hunter early on, because he would raise the price of freight fuel by closing Iran’s nuclear facilities. If you want to interfere with the plans of the establishment mad this late in the game, vote for Obama. He’s a “male,” and he’s clueless. He might mess things up for them (or be yet another puppet of theirs to blend our economics with those of the Third World).
Which would you rather see: another Carter in office, or a Hillary with an army of social weirdos with axes to grind against everyone else?
I live in Wisconsin, and I am registering Dem so I can vote for Obama unless Huckabee still has a chance.
No, you are definitely not alone in that.
I want to see Hillary beaten. Now!
She’s already waaaaay to close the WH.
I want her ego SMASHED!
I want the Clinton Crime Syndicate eliminated once and for all!
Anybody but Clinton!
I don’t even have to register Dem to vote in the primary. I am definitely voting for Obama. I hate Clinton. I don’t want her as the nominee because I believe McCain will lose no matter what.
Personally, I would like to see the Clintons expunged from national politics for all time. Let Hillary live out her days commuting between Chappaqua and D.C. If she becomes the Democrat nominee, you never know what could happen. I’d rather her be stopped before she gets that far, to be sure.
Not sure how that affects the State Supreme Court race though-- I don't want to mess with that because it's very important for Wisconsin. We have to defeat "Loophole Louie" at all costs.
Hating Hillary is all I have left in politics. I had an “anybody but McCain” tagline for 9 months, and wouldn’t you know we’d nominate Juan McCain? It is utterly depressing to me. Now it’s not about voting for anybody, but just stopping Hillary from letting out a cackle of glee on election night.
I’m leaning to vote for Obama.
The strategy is to defeat her, if we fail in the primaries,
we’ll get another chance in the general.
That gives us two chances versus one.
Heres my reasons:
1) Hispanics and Asians are much less likely to vote for Obama than Hitlery, there is REAL racial animosity barely below the surface that the Media will never report. Hispanic support is a key pillar of Democrapian support.
2) Obama is a blank slate, just waiting to be written on. Dukakis, not even as unknown as Obama, dropped almost 30 points in a month, only to recover slightly before the election.
3) The Hussein factor-- This could be exploited big time, and will be, by somebody
And this doesnt even mention inexperience or hyper liberalism. The lines will be drawn and the longer this goes on, the worst for him. McCain is a crappy candidate himself, but hes not an unknown.
End the Hitlery curse, once and for all! (not to mention the pleasure we'll get from Hillary going ballistic and taking it out on Bill)
