I wish all registered voters in Texas would vote for Obama
February 10, 2008 | Allan J. Favish

Posted on 02/10/2008 8:57:33 PM PST by AJFavish

Texas will hold its primary on March 4, 2008. People do not register as members of political parties in Texas, so on March 4th, anybody who is registered to vote, can vote for Obama. See http://www.sos.state.tx.us/elections/voter/primary.shtml. With McCain already the Republican nominee effectively, why not have those who lean Republican all vote for Obama to help destroy Hillary's candidacy?

Texas will send delegates to the Democrat convention. 126 of those will be chosen in the 31 separate primaries on March 4, 2007 divided by state Senate districts. See http://www.mydd.com/story/2008/2/8/17340/43669. Republicans can help Obama get many of these 126.

Another 67 delegates will be based on the results of caucuses. Those who lean Republican and voted for Obama may be able to attend the caucuses. But I am not sure.

As I see it, better to have Obama defeat her rather than risk her becoming President in a battle with McCain.

If Hillary is Obama’s VP, she’ll become President sooner or later.

Pshh... here at UT and pretty much all over Austin all the cute chicks dig Obama. All you gotta do is repeat one of his stumps all summed up then say this is the year change blah blah blah. Easiest pick ups ever. EVER.

You and me Baby. YES WE CAN!

As for your plan... I think I’m gonna try what Mr. Jim Robinson thinks we should do as a) it’s worth a shot b) it’s his site I feel I owe it to him. c) we all know Obama isn’t gonna win this thing. Clintons are too good.

I want Hillary to stay as a viable candidate.

And I despise her.

Let her and HUSSEIN NObomba battle it out for as long as possible.

I think Hillary is the weaker candidate.

Anyway - Mexicans are handing over the nomination to Hillary.

Obama won both White and Black vote in CA and still got his clock cleaned.

Arizona also helped Hillary Bigtime.

All the counties bordering Mexico are now FIRMLY in LIB column.

I was surprised by Oklahama results. I wonder if the illmigrant wave has made it all the way up there.....

Totally agree, if I still lived in Texas, that is what I would do.

IMO...we should do all we can do to take her out now, I think she and Obama are both dangerous for our country.

However...I think she is both dangerous and evil it's self personified...a deadly combination.

In Washington, the rationale to vote Obama was because he could win and Hillary could not.

Barack Hussein Obama was the most liberal senator in 2007, according to National Journal's 27th annual vote ratings.

He scored an 8, yes EIGHT out of 100 on the American Conservative Union's conservative check list.

Vote for him? Vote for HIM?

I will vote March 4th, but it sure isn't going to be for some socialist pos.

Please don't drink and FReep AJ.

I am voting for Romney! And to whoever wrote this article, be informed that Hillary will be the nominee. She will be easier to beat than Messiah Obama. So stop stabbing us Republicans in the back by voting for Messiah Obama.

I’d love for you to explain why I or any other registered voter in Texas that wants to vote in the Republican Primary should give that up to vote in the democratic primary for Obama? Do you understand we have many other positions on the ballot such as Representatives, Senator, State reps/senators, Judges, District attorneys, and many other offices........

Can you explain your request? Give it your best shot.

I will vote for Obama on March 4. I will support McCain in November. McCain's quite a little scamp, but he is a much safer choice than Billary or Obama, especially with a Democratic majority in Congress.

With proportional division of delegates, it will be very hard for Obama to build more than a 100 delegate lead in February. Hillary could easily undo that in March. But if we conservatives use our primary votes to undo Billary, it may be the best use of our votes ever.

If only 30-40,000 Republicans all work together, especially in TX, OH, and PN, where Hillary has to play catch-up, Obama finishes in the lead. Even if Billary and the Supers steal it from Obama then, she will lose badly in November. I think that an Obama lead into the Convention would give the Supers the chance they've wanted to clean the Dim' Party of the trailer trash though.

You’re wrong. People ought to make SURE Hillary is the candidate to run against. Obama will get more people to vote for him than Hillary will.

I do...my clue is that the Clinton machine with already 2 terms to practice, relentlessly and continually promoting mindless liberalism and FURTHER inflicting this agenda of permanent harm on our culture is the clear and present danger.

Obamanation of Islam is bad too of course, but not as bad as these 2 creatures IMHO.

Are you insane? Obama is even worse than Hillary. However despicable Hillary may be to all of us; this is the future of our country here. If we must have a democrat for the next president, I’m hoping and praying it’s Hillary!

No, vote for Hillary. We need her to stay in and for the two of them to stay at each other’s throat.

Don't agree.

The clintons WILL win if she is given the nomination.

Do you really believe if they get that far they will let ANYTHING/ANYONE stand in their way of the WH?

What I believe is that Obama is MORE beatable than Hillary. She is a much more hated figure, who does not have a chance in hell inspiring anyone. She’s the other old face in the election. The ‘been there, done that’, ‘couldn’t get anything done’ candidate. Obama is coming across as the reincarnation of JFK and the idiots listening to him spout vapid rhetoric are enthralled by him.

I think most people are looking at this in too short a time frame. My take (and it’s frequently wrong as I was probably the first of the FR Fred supporters) is that we should vote for Obama. Let’s be sure Hillary is toast - that way, once she loses the nomination we are effectively done with her on the national level. Second, McCain will likely beat Obama — he will be shown to be too radical and even more left wing than Hillary and the good-old-boy blue blood Dems won’t come out and vote for him. That way, if McCain wins (while most of us won’t like it) we can live with that better than Obama and Hillary (sorry Ann, but that is fact!). Obama then is shown to be a loser and hopefully we are done with him, too.
In 2012 McCain will have ticked off enough of the Reps so that even if he gets the nomination (if he lives that long - his tumor seems to be growing to me) - the Dems will have had to reload and hopefully a less socialist candidate will emerge. Should Hillary get the nomination and lose to McCain we surely will get Obama in 2012 or 2016 and that should frighten us all.

You need to some some research on Obama. No One, least of all a conservative, should EVER vote for Obama.He is a very dangerous man, and his followers are so smitten, they don't care what he says or what he stands for, they will vote for him in droves!

As bad as this sounds, Hillery is much less dangerous than Obama!

Obama File

Radical muslims For Obama

In our dislike and distrust for Hillery, we can't open the door to the Presidency of this Country, to someone who does not have this Country's best interests as their number one priority!

Republicans should vote for Ron Paul as a protest vote (or better yet, Romney) , UNLESS they actually support Huckabee. ANYTHING to prevent McCain from getting the delegates.

I personally think Hillary is going to be easier to beat than Obama.

If you want Obama to be president, then go ahead a vote for him.

Both Obama and Hillary are pretty scary.

Honestly, I don’t see McCain or anyone else having the slightest chance of beating Obama. However terrible his policies may be, you have to give the man some credit for knowing how to give an incredible speech. It’s downright Reagan-esqe, and that’s a compliment.

Largest Terrorist Forum Happily Proclaims: If Hillary Clinton is President, America is Defeated

IMO, if Hillary is allowed to be our president, we'll pay for that in more ways than one. And although Hillary would probably be forced to start drafting men into war, who could actually be forced to fight with her as their commander-in-chief?

Texas voters crossing over is a legitimate vote. Dems helped install McCain this way. Listen, I know everybody wants to think positively, but McCain is the GOP nominee, and he has ABSOLTUELY NO CHANCE in the general election.

So, helping Obama is a legit vote if you can’t stand Hill/Bill in the WH. They’re both lib pukes but personally the Clintons will assist me to go back on blood pressure medication. lol

vote for Obama

No way!

If I do cross over, it will be to vote for Shrillery 'cuz she's more beatable. More likely, though, I will vote GOP so I can go to the precinct convention. (If I went to a rat convention, I doubt I would get out alive). So I will probably vote for Hucklebee if he still has a pulse, or more likely, I will waste my vote on Alan Keyes.

I think some folks are *actually* trying to get Obamaramadan elected and I ain’t jokin’, under the guise of “defeat Hillary”.

Well, think whatever you want, I damn sure am not!

I believe hillary [any clinton] will win given the opportunity to run in the general, at that time she will have the entire corrupt democrat machine behind her cheating in ways we can not even imagine!

So is staying home and helping select the candidates in the various offices besides President that will be on ones ballot. There are other races being contested in TX besides the Presidential primary...
