On the radio today Medved and Hewitt both asked Obama supporters to call and say why they were supporting their man. Specifics, please. The replies were rather indistinct...

I wonder if Conservative/Republicans have JUMPED THE GUN in ganging up on Obama.
Hildabeast is far from being done, but the assumption is made that she is.
The fact that Republicans/Conservatives have focused all their attacks on Obama, may infact end up reviving their most hated enemy - Hildabeast.
I get the sense that we started this barrage a little too soon......we are helping Hildabeast here.
Oooo, stern language?
hate to agree at all with Hillary and those people, but......
I think part of Obama’s appeal is that he speaks very well, and speaks in enough generalities that people come way thinking they support his stands on issues, though they don’t know what those issues are. And part of Obama’s appeal is the strong ABC vote (anybody but Clinton) which exists among Democrats too, it’s not just a Republican thing to dislike the Clintons.
obama would simply say to the iranians “yes we can”...problem solved, what a guy !
I think that having hildabeast and obammarama in a tie going into the convention is the best result, with hildabeast cheating to win the nomination via the Florida and Michigan delegates.
So little is really known about this guy, who mainly spouts beautifully framed platitudes, that the Dim base is projecting their ideal candidate on him.
Very funny and simultaneously depressing.
I also do not understand why people support nasty Hillary or nasty and loony tunes John McCain. McCain's defense against the latest scandal today was a hoot and Cindy could not keep a straight face. He seems to be running out of steam.
A Hillary comeback is the best thing for the GOP. A brokered convention will rip their party apart, and keep a lot of them home in November.
"Tard" refers to the ping list members and not to the subject of the thread!
List of Ping Lists
At this point....VOTE for Hillary!
Could it be that Obama has Out-Clintoned...the Clintons. About FEELING their pain?
Yes, we should hold our fire on Obama until March 5, presuming he clinches the nomination in the Ohio and Texas primaries.
She has age and treachery on her side, so one can’t be too careful.
Well, there's his wife:
Her optimism and patriotic spirit are an inspiration to us all!
Those who follow Obama are byproducts of our education system which has produced a bunch of well-speaking morons devoid of wisdom and common sense.
He will meet with the Iranians, personally, and conduct a frank personal interrogation about their nuclear intentions
And, in turn, since he is half Muslim, Iran tells him the truth about their intentions. Armed with the truth, he will return to America to share the good news that Iran has no intention of bombing the hell out of the US. RRRRRiiiight!
Even more impossible when you have fundamental differences on what the problems are!
I’ll second that
Yeah, sort of like the deaf-mute guy in The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter -- he didn't speak but looked kind and serious and everyone just projected their own hopes and longings on him.
It’s easy, Obama brings HOPE back to the country and offers CHANGE. He’s also for the FUTURE. It’s a great combination.
I've done what I can to help her, hehehe. Remember, Texas is an "open primary". The dems picked our candidate for us. I'll do what I can to "help" the dems! If that "help" ultimately results in a melt-down at their convention, well, so be it! Good popcorn!
Not many people can name anything Hussein has done, including TX State senator kirk watson (LIBERAL) - (D) Austin
Don’t shoot until you see the whites of Obama’s eyes.
Medved is helping Hillary. Yeah, I’m talking to you Michael Medved!
We all need to chill out on Obama until he slays the Hildebeast.
He will give us hope by giving us hope:
Clearly, he's a gifted speaker. However, he speaks in nothing more than platitudes. How can one support his stance on any issues when he never mentions them?
Yep. The key to beating this guy will be to define him for what he is, a far leftie, but do it in a way that deflects to the maximum extent the inevitable charges of racism.
doubt it unless the Slime Hit Piece on McCain was a prelude the piece it will run on the Unsubstantiated but illicit homosexual affair between Obama and the lobbyist head of the CCUA.
But, that analysis is based on democrats having integrity.
Longtime liberal actress Susan Sarandon gushed about her support of Barack Obama, saying she definitely would vote for him for president. Then she added the capper: "I can't wait to see what he stands for."
Tom Lykis had a segment on his show yesterday called “Chicks on Politics”. He asked female Obama supporters to call in and give their reasons why. He ended up roasting them, particularly on universal health care (”who’s going to pay for it?”).
“She has age and treachery on her side, so one cant be too careful.”
One of the best lines I’ve heard in a long time! Excellent.
“but do it in a way that deflects to the maximum extent the inevitable charges of racism.”
Are you for real... That is impossible because Obama is running as the candidate of entitlements to the victims, the underprivledged and minorities. The first time you question a single entitlement program you are going to be accused of racism and not wanting the low income min to get ahead ... This is a no win for Conservatives... Obama’s team led by his very own version of Che Guevera (Jesse Jackson) are waiting in the wings with baited breath.
It feels great to vote against Hillary. Try it! You’ll see.
obama would simply say to the iranians yes we can...problem solved, what a guy !
Ahmadinejad’s slogan in his election in Iran was Its possible, and we can do it . . . no kidding.
The mullahs in Iran would consider Barack Hussein Obama as a Muslim who has strayed from the reservation and became a “Christian.” Such a conversion is punishable by death in Iran.
How serious can you expect someone to be who drives a Honda Element and can’t remember where he last left his garage door remote?
ohhh I think i’m going to faint.
Obama will be the next President. We are getting what we deserve.
Conservatism will rescue us from the mess Obama and Reid and Pelosi and the RINOs will create.
I survived Carter and an overwhelming Democrat majority.
We got Reagan, who always said that there must be a pony under all that horses**t we had to endure.
2012 will be a great year!
You fed the beast? OMG. May God have mercy on your soul.
You forgot the third leg of his political stool—dream.
If you vote against Hillary you will be labeled a sexist by your own wife.
what a koinkydink
