Of course you do. You have all but guaranteed that she would be the nominate...on second thought, maybe you did guarantee it.

As a matter of fact, I also predicted that McCain would be nominee back in the summer--and win. Oh...my great psychic powers. All those who request winning Lotto tickets, please send FReep Mail. ;)

But how can this be? Rush and Sean told me that the Clintons were all-powerful in the Democratic party. They said her “coronation” was inevitable, a foregone conclusion. Most posters here said the same thing. I’m afraid the AM Overlords were talking out of their asses....again.

I agree with you. Some here may believe Obama the easy candidate to beat, but this is going to get very, very ugly.

Obama is too Old and Confused to be President

McCain is too Old and Confused to be President. That's the message that Obama supporters are trying to put out and they have a point.  After all McCain is clearly old.  McCain is an aged 71 while Obama is a spring chicken at the tender age of 46.

Unlike McCain, Obama is unconfused and on the ball all the time.

For example Obama knows that there are 57 states in the Union and he's visited every one of them. Particularly Mars.

Obama knows that 10,000 people died in a Kansas tornado that killed only 10 people. Clearly math was never his strong subject.

At Selma, Obama informed us that his parents met four years after he was born and that his Kenyan diplomat father had a flag draped coffin.

He knows that Canada's Prime Minister is actually a President

Obama knows they speak Arabic in Afghanistan and that there are poppy fields in Iraq

Obama knows that Matt Lauer is really Tim Russert

Obama had no idea whatsoever that his home church and the reverend with whom he had a 20 year relationship was a crazy america hating racist.

Hell Obama couldn't even figure out how to use the voting buttons in the Illinois State Senate

Barack Obama angered fellow Democrats in the Illinois Senate when he voted to strip millions of dollars from a child welfare office on Chicago's West Side. But Obama had a ready explanation: He goofed.

"I was not aware that I had voted no," he said that day in June 2002, asking that the record be changed to reflect that he "intended to vote yes."

On March 19, 1997, he announced he had fumbled an election-reform vote the day before, on a measure that passed 51 to 6: "I was trying to vote yes on this, and I was recorded as a no," he said. The next day, he acknowledged voting "present" on a key telecommunications vote.

He stood on March 11, 1999, to take back his vote against legislation to end good-behavior credits for certain felons in county jails. "I pressed the wrong button on that," he said.

Obama was the lone dissenter on Feb. 24, 2000, against 57 yeas for a ban on human cloning. "I pressed the wrong button by accident," he said.

On Nov. 14, 1997, he backed legislation to permit riverboat casinos to operate even when the boats were dockside. Moments after its passage he rose to say, "I'd like to be recorded as a no vote," explaining that he had mistakenly voted for it.

Maybe Obama was just tired all these years and needed a nap. Let's just hope he manages to figure out how the nuclear button and the intercom button works before he blows up the planet while trying to order some Spanish ham.

But don't worry, when Obama's campaign makes a mistake, it's always his staffers who are at fault.

After the Politico raised questions about questionnaire Obama filled out in 1996, Obama supporter Rep. Adam Smith, D-Wa., took to Tucker Carlson's MSNBC Show to say, "He didn't fill it out and he did not support those positions then . . . That was a questionnaire filled out in his first state Senate campaign back in 1996 not by Senator Obama but by somebody on his staff that didn't get it cleared."

Well that sort of thing can happen once or twice, right? Or over and over again. But what can you expect from a guy who doesn't even know what letters he's writing or for whom?

In a March 2008 interview with the Chicago Sun-Times to answer questions about Tony Rezko, Obama was asked about the fact that Obama had told the newspaper in November 2006 that he had never been asked to do anything to advance Rezko's business interests. But the Sun-Times had subsequently learned about a October 28, 1998 letter Obama wrote to city and state housing officials on behalf of a housing project for seniors that Rezko was working on.

Responded Obama: "I wasn't even aware that we wrote the letter. The answer that I gave at the time was accurate as far as I knew...This was one of many form letters, or letters of recommendation we would send out constantly for all sorts of projects. And my understanding is that our letter was just one of many. And I wasn’t a decision maker in any of this process.”

Who does the buck stop with? Not with Barack Obama who barely even knows when he's writing a letter in support of building a senior center on a toxic chemical spill waste site for the guy closely tied to his law firm who raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for him. I mean whatdaya expect anyway? He's not a decision maker.

But with all of Obama's confusion and his ignorance of how many states there are and his constant inability to keep his staff from fooling him, maybe Obama is just too old and confused to be President.

At 46 isn't it time for Barack Obama who has had a dignified record of pressing the wrong buttons in the Illinois Senate and a hundred days or so in the US Senate voting Present on many major issues, to be put out to pasture and retire so he can finally enjoy the good life?

Far be it from me to mock Obama's premature senility but it would seem that his age and mental confusion makes the Presidency a too high pressure job for someone with his fragile memory and awareness.

Instead maybe it's time for the Democratic party to let in some fresh new blood such as 32 year old Rep. Patrick McHenry from North Carolina or 21 year old superdelegate Jason Rae. They clearly have the fresh ideas and the experience garnered from years of videogaming to figure out which buttons to press to vote on crucial issues.

If younger is better, than we can certainly do better than Obama. It's time for new ideas and less confusion. It's time for Obama to take his nap and make way for the younger generation. The fact is he's clearly too old and confused to be President anyway.

Obama-Drudge vs. McCain.

It's not over until the convention.

After all, this is the wife of the come back kid and if the super delegates are taken away, he hasn't clinched it yet.

Just because the AP says that it's a done deal, that doesn't make it a done deal.

Super delegates are allowed to change their mind's.....

Not that I am a supporter of the witch, however if I were Hitlery, I wouldn't drop out of the race just because of the biased reporting of the AP.

LOL if you believe for a SECOND that the filthy she-witch is less liberal than Obambi. The filthy banshee was smart enough to vote "moderate" here and there to project the IMAGE of being less "liberal" than others.

In reality, it was nothing more than a ploy to help her get into the Whitehouse. Once there, she no longer would have to play those games. She'd be free to enact her Stalinist agenda without consequence.

You have no idea how dangerous that "womyn" is. No idea at all.

There is not a person alive more dangerous than she. She is Hitler II.

Why on earth would you want to "counteract" this?

1. It's the truth. It's over.

2. The filthy stinking witch is far more dangerous that Obambi.

Is it an irrational hatred of McCain? Do you desperately want Hillary! to be the nominee because she is the only shot at defeating McCain?

OBAMA CANNOT BEAT MCCAIN! Obama will lose OH, PA, and FL. He can't win without those States.

He’s also the farthest to the Left of anyone who’s run on a major party ticket, and that’s saying something. And all his past cohorts are radical leftovers from the 1960’s. People better wise up, or we are going to get the most radical socialist government we’ve ever seen.

agreed
Said it earlier. I do not agree with clinton at all, the thought of her being president makes me shudder but the thought of that radical appeasing clueless fool with his racist wife and his radical lefty, black power groups getting that power what comes with being president is just disturbing to me .

This country will never be the same under obama and if he wins , it means a great joy to our enemies and his radical associates

I mean think about it, members of the weather underground, nation of islam, black panthers, Iran’s leader, move on.org daily Kos etc at the white house

Our classified info will be leaked to our enemies national and international.
While I can understand somewhat the thoughts against clinton I would not get all jumped up about this
