Posted on 03/22/2008 8:23:47 PM PDT by LdSentinal
On Saturday, Obamas favorable ratings slipped a little further46% favorable, 51% unfavorable. Before the Pastor Problem became big news, Obama was viewed favorably by 52%. One month ago, he was viewed favorably by 56%. McCain is viewed favorably by 54% of voters nationwide and unfavorably by 43%. For Clinton, those numbers are 43% favorable, 54% unfavorable.The last time he was even close to this territory was November 20, 2007 when his favorables were at 44%, his unfavorables at 50%, and not a whole lot of people knew much about him.

“evidenced by a Gallup poll published today showing Obama up by three,”
I was concerned for about 10 seconds ... then I found out that it was Obama v Clinton.
The fact is that Obama’s speech could be a hit with the liberals and a miss with everyone else, because he clung to the myths the liberals believe, while not answering in any way the concerns people not dyed-in-wool liberals have. Those concerns are not about Wright’s ‘racist’ statements, but the question of his *patriotism*. Wright doesnt believe in America, the churh Obama chose calls Africa the motherland, so where does Obama’s allegience really lie? What sort of America does Obama believe in?
It’s the Patriotism, Stupid!
That’s racist! s/

Heck, I have it really bad. I'm a typical white grandmother. I'm supposed to freak out when I meet strangers.
Did they factor his grandmother into this?
Those who are perched the highest have the longest distance to fall.
Cafe Press has a nice variety of “Typical White Person” t-shirts.
This is going to make great street theater down the road.
“McCain is viewed favorably by 54%”
Any of them Conservative Republicans?
“OsamaObama ain’t nuttin’ but a jive-ass wannabe anyhow. She-it.”
No they are part of the other 46%.
and leave it to McCain to try to help Obama.......
NOT ME AT ALL, I WILL NEVER VOTE IF McCAIN IS THE (R) CANDIDATE!!!
NEVER, I SAY, NEVER!
It is who Obama is and where his core beliefs have been formulated over the last 20 years.
...and it aint traditional, and it aint Christian.
Nothing wrong with that shirt. Fraternities are as Typical White Guy as you can get.
At this point, which candidate would get beat worse in November? If Obama gets the nomination and blows general election big time, I could imagine his senate seat could be vulnerable in 2010. Hillary could possibly get the nomination now, but I really seriously doubt she could get the nomination in 2012 if Obama gets it this year due to all the bad blood. It looks like this election cycle could permanently knock out two long term DemocRAT contenders.
Keep informing folks anyway ... long way until November

If he does, he'll get shredded. Hillary can't really attack him because shell alienate her own base in doing so. Much of his success is because of her handicaps in dealing with him.
The longer he stands center stage the more he'll crumble. “Change” is a nice slogan, but people do ask pesky questions for which he has no reasonable and feasible answers. As people dig, dirt comes up and more is to come. Once in a battle with McCain, the kids gloves come off. Far more left than even Hillary, he'll have a hard time getting the independent and undecided votes. People do look at a resume, and with no executive, business, or military experience, young and only a junior Senator at that, his attempt to spin this into his campaign as being a positive because he's the “Washington outsider” won't work. Much of his success is because he was an unknown with no record. Something which again in all reality is a negative and he spun to a positive. But again, anyone more analytical wants a record and looks for the known quantity because this gives indication as to the outcomes and decisions made once in the position.
Obama is comparable to a kid straight from college walking in at a major firm such as GM or EDS and asking to be CEO. Hes a well dressed kid. Hes attractive and can speak well. He uses lots of buzz words when talking. He even has good poise, but his resume fits on 1/3 of one page, unless you include Boy Scout summer camps and his college job. Lets admit it, Geraldine Ferraro was correct in her analysis and of course when she states the near obvious, shes too is now labeled a racist. Obama is the best choice of action by the Democrats in so far that it makes a positive outcome for us more probable.
Well damn, they should. The truth comes out, and it ain’t good.

Put down the coffee cup and back away slowly.
Stolen as my new tagline :-)
Quite a litany of egregious and dangerous facts. My question is, why do so many people still like (adore might be a better word) Obama? Is it because the MSM is not getting these facts out clearly, or that people know but half of America is actually unAmerican?
Oh, goody. So on January 20, 2009, we will all hear, “I, Hillary Rodham Clinton, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
all the dirty secrets are coming out
“NOT ME AT ALL, I WILL NEVER VOTE IF McCAIN IS THE (R) CANDIDATE!!!”
This is awesome/
Nobama is in free fall and a long way from the boyyom.
If Hillary steals the nomination, her negatives will be off the chart.
My latest youtube rant:
His ascendancy to the presidency would literally start a political civil war. And it would spill over into other areas of society. It wouldn't be pretty. The Dummicrats never give poeple enough time to assimilate to each other and they antagonize and divide purposely.
Is it because the MSM is not getting these facts out clearly, or that people know but half of America is actually unAmerican? #34
I don’t know about unAmerican but you can bet that 1/2 are just plain uneducated unthinking twits...Use words like ‘screw Washington’ or **** the organization and many other anti-authoritarian rants and they just eat it up..That’s why lowlife dimRATS appeal so much to them, cause they all think alike..Also like- ‘steal from the rich and give to the poor’ oh yeah, that’s their big time rant, since they see themselves as poor deserving masses...That’s all they care about- protecting their own behinds...
Don’t get close to Obama’s bus!!! ;^)
And it ain't American.
Obama unfavorables hit all-time high...among typical white people!!!!
That's unlikely, since Illinois Republicans don't have a candidate for any state-wide office. Obama won the senate seat because his original opponent (Jack Ryan)was derailed by his ex-wife, a Hollywood chick made famous for wearing a skin-tight costume and funny face make-up on a TV space show, who complained about going to sex clubs.
Ryan was replaced by Alan Keyes. That went nowhere and Obama swept in. Too bad, because a serious Republican opponent in 2004 might have gotten something out about Jeremiah Wright back then.
But, it's unlikely that Obama will win the general election, so this will be his one chance to do this. After this, it will be Teddy Kennedy relection campaigns, where he is constantly explaining how he wasn't there each time Jeremiah went off the deep end.
Barack Obama either agreed with what was preached from the Trinity pulpit, or he tuned it out and stayed around pretending to for political reasons. To say he stayed for 20 years but doesn't agree with Wright's preaching is incredible denial. It'd be like a man buying White Sox season tickets for 20 years, attending the games, and saying he's not a fan.
Obamas supporters want us to ignore this story just push it under the rug. While theyll align Republicans with any obscure pastor who does or says something controversial, theyre trying to convince us that Obamas 20-year long close relationship with Wright, including his effective endorsement of him, his church and rhetoric with a $22,500 donation in 2006 is irrelevant.
When Obama decided against wearing an American flag pin, we may all have been a bit too quick to accept his rationale, too quick to find that issue unimportant. Now, that American flag pin has gotten a lot bigger for a lot of us, especially in light of what may have been and may still be Obamas deeper, and, perhaps, secret, less than patriotic beliefs about America.
Wright says that blacks cant be expected to sing God Bless America because of racism. Obama doesnt salute the flag during the National Anthem. That sure strikes me as an amazing coincidence since Obama swears he never heard Wright say anything against America.
Here is the link to the Star Spangled Banner video with obama standing there without his hand over his heart...
Notice her ear ring!
McCain may nominate strict constructionists to the Supreme Court, or, more likely, unpredictable middle-of-the-road types. Obama or Clinton would choose the most radical Marxists they can find -- there is no doubt about that. After that, the Bill of Rights will apply to terrorists and common criminals but not to ordinary Americans. You will have plenty of time in the re-education camps to reflect on your vote (or failure to vote). If the Supreme Court had a solid conservative majority and we were not at war, it might be a good time to teach the RINOs a lesson. Unfortunately, we have no good choices so all we can do for now is minimize the possible damage.
