gay.com ^ | 3/2/08

Posted on 03/02/2008 2:24:53 PM PST by Recovering_Democrat

The Obama campaign is lavishing some of its cash advantage on the LGBT community with targeted ad buys in Ohio and Texas leading up to the critical March 4 primaries in both states (Rhode Island and Vermont also vote that day).

According to Eric Stern, a member of the Obama LGBT steering committee, the campaign has just completed an ad buy with queer newspapers in the four largest LGBT markets of those two states -- Columbus, Cleveland, Dallas and Houston.

Obama appeals to everyone: evangelicals like Rick Warren, gays, transgenders....I even hear he will appoint Republicans to his cabinet. What's not to like? He is the modern day Savior to America! < /sarcasm>

You added a sarcasm tag - but you don’t realize just how many people really do believe that. The Obama adoration and worship makes the old Clinton worship look pretty generic.

Folks really do look at Obama as a savior. That is what terrifies me.

While I haven’t seen the ad here in Texas, I can’t turn the tv on without seeing Hussein. He’s averaging every third commercial in the evenings. Hill is good to have one every third night.

Houston and Austin are pretty Sanfransiscoish. Pretty gay places with lots of “alternative lifestyles,” AKA perverts 20 years ago.

He is making a mistake. He WILL pay for it.

I repeat he would lose 3 out of 4 states this Tuesday. His lone victory would be in Vermont.

Hildabeast would be resurgent.

I even hear he will appoint Republicans to his cabinet.

Chuck Hagel is as "Republican" as Wesley Clark. And Dick Lugar's dream job is to head the U.N.

"Your ‘Boma material is one of a kind. If only your material and Beckwith’s got some MSM attention, Obama’s candidacy would be no more"

You can help FRiend by making sure that it gets the MSM attention. Spread the word. Ask radio to mention it - Rush, Hannity, even your hometown papers and everyone you know.

I'm not giving up - I know full well what is at stake.

We are all in this together.

“Houston and Austin are pretty Sanfransiscoish. Pretty gay places with lots of “alternative lifestyles,” “

I’ve seen it posted somewhere before (FR?) that the Episcopal Cathedral in Houston has a large population of braggadocios gays who go to the communion rail holding hands.

Don't worry about it. Human saviors can never live up to their follower's expectations for very long. At some point, he will fall and fall hard.

And he’s going to push the socially conservative Democrats who supported Reagan right back to considering a Republican.

Unfortunately, they’ll find John McCain with the Republican nomination and they’ll keep looking elsewhere.

My gay hairdresser informed me was was voting for Obama. That doesn’t surprise me but I did tell him he had a Muslim father a Muslim stepfather and attended a madrassa in SE Asia. He was shocked but I doubt if he will become a McCaniac because of it.

Possibly. This is going to be one interesting and ugly election. I have not talked to one democrat or republican who likes any of the choices. It may well be the lowest voter turnout in history.

Pandering to gays is a sure way to lose the election in November. Maybe this is the reason: http://www.clevelandleader.com/node/4766
