So first AP puts out a loud story about how Hillary Clinton will “concede that Obama may have more delegates” and phrases that like she'll concede the primary.

Now they loudly proclaim that Obama has won, it's over.

All while the polls are still open!

Some brave prosecutor should get on them right away or they'll do it in the general election, again.

I hate to lick the red off your candy cane, but the superdelegates don’t actually count until they VOTE at the convention. She can still flip them.


Especially if their FBI files were somehow to fall into her hands.

I wouldn't put ANYTHING past the Clintons.

He isn’t really black you all know. He is being judged and helped because of the color of his skin and not the content of his character.

That this guy could skate to the Democratic nomination shows you how far downhill this country has gone. However, it is the Democrats, after all. They have lost all pretense, and are now a far left, radical party.

So, Obama finally bought the support of enough super delegates.

You say that like hillary wasn't trying to buy 'em, intimidate 'em, threaten 'em, etc., etc.,... {{{Eye Roll}}}

“Barrack Obama effectively clinched the democratic nomination...”

Huh? What does that mean? “Effectively?” Does that mean he did or he didn’t? If he did, wouldn’t it say, “Barrack Obama clinched the democratic nomination?” Have we finally reached the point where we allow the Associated Press and other media partisans to determine our truths?

Your forgetting...that is what bothers so many of these posters, they hate McCain, want him to lose, wanted to vote for hillary to help make it happen.

I agree, you are right.

Ain’t nothing clinched until the delegates have their say at the Convention. How the delegates feel on June 3 2008 means nothing.

The unelected delegates can change their minds, but at great risk. When the dirt on Obama becomes widespread news, the delegates will know he can't win, but can't risk the longterm disenfranchisement of the black voters.

“From what I understand, they can change their vote right up until they cast votes at the convention.”

That’s why the Obamaganda sounds so scared. Every week for two months they’ve screamed a mantra like Gore’s “the science is settled.” As another freeper said, Obama’s people have mastered the drip drip tactic. Every day another supposed super delegate converted...you know, the religiously contexted word conversion is perfect for the Obama messiah.

Smart move...super delegates weigh in now. When the polls close, ordinary voters in SD and MT make him the nominate with the other 7 pledges he needs.

“What happened to wait until the polls close???”

My question exactly. Aren’t there people voting right now? If this isn’t an attempt to manipulate those primaries I don’t know what is. They want Obama to finish strong, no more embarassing defeats. If one positive has come out of this whole experience, it’s that half of all dems now see what we’ve been saying all along - the media is rigged, biased, and not to be trusted.

Of course she has. But, it appears that Obama has been doling out considerably more cash than Hillary. According to this article, Obama has been outbribing Hillary by more than 3 to 1. This article is a few months old, but Obama has been raking in huge amounts of money, and superdelegates have been flocking to him. What does that tell you?

Now we can count how many times he speaks with forked tongue out of both faces. Of course, not counting the myriad of times already.

Can a person like him be considered mentally stable when he utters lies on a daily basis that are so easily proven wrong?

It shows just how gullible the typical lie~beral is.

Those who know me on this board in real life know that I’m not a $inator $hrill fan.

What upsets me about this and the Fox News earlier today declaring Hussein ObamaMessiaHamas’s victory before he has really won is what will happen in November.

This November may make the Falling Chads look like child play.

We can expect the MSM and Hussein ObamaMessiaHamas’s cult to declare him President before the election is over and afterwards even if he loses. Shades of how Hitler won his first election in Germany.

DBrow does a good job of summing up my concerns re this BS of Hussein ObamaMessiaHamas’s wins in the MSM, before he has really won.

“So first AP puts out a loud story about how Hillary Clinton will “concede that Obama may have more delegates” and phrases that like she’ll concede the primary.
Now they loudly proclaim that Obama has won, it’s over.

All while the polls are still open!

“Have we finally reached the point where we allow the Associated Press and other media partisans to determine our truths?”

In my entire memory of presidential elections, each was declared “over” and the winner huzzahed by network news before the votes were counted on the West Coast.

With possibly the exception of the 2000 elections, when they changed their minds.

Remember 2004, everyone was waiting for the press to call Ohio and end the contest? “Why haven't they called it yet? It's obvious Kerry lost!” We have become accustomed to the unconstitutional power they have seized.

It’s not over till it;s over so I’ll wait for now but one thing is for sure no way can any of us let Obama into that white house with his crazy pals from the black panthers, his racist wife, the likes of the weather underground and the nation of islam

No way do I want to see Iran’s leader bieng invited into the white house

IMHO He threatens this country far more than anyone or any country right now

God only knows what secrets and secret actions will be leaked to his nut case firends and our enemies

No doubt Hamas, Hizbullah and binladen are all cheering right now

“Have we finally reached the point where we allow the Associated Press and other media partisans to determine our truths?”

Here's another idea. Remember Dean's shout after he declared all of the states he was going to win? We still make fun of it here. Yeahgghhh!

Imagine if MSM and their fellow travelers had immediately called it a “war cry”, a sign of great strength and a sure harbinger of victory, then repeated that assessment over and over on every outlet instead of en masse denouncing it as crazy-sounding. And followed this up with immense support for Dean. (I think they had decided on Kerry with his war stories the week before, and were waiting to bag Dean).

Most people would accept that like they accept a car ad that promises to make your neighbor jealous.

But people went with the Crazy Dean publicity campaign and went with Kerry, who the media gave tremendous support to.

They are good at selling product through the media, in fact they get paid handsomely to do it. Toothpaste, candidates, Ginzu knives, global warming. I'll feel more confident that boys will like me if I buy this shampoo.

They've been selling us Da Trooth for a while now.

Clinton: Will Do ‘Whatever it Takes’ to Elect a Democrat

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.) said she was willing to do “whatever it takes” to elect a Democrat in the fall in response to a question from Rep. Nydia Velasquez about the vice presidency during a recently completed conference call with the New York congressional delegation.

Velasquez, a prominent Clinton supporter and Latina, voiced concern that without Clinton on the national ticket, Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.) might not be able to win the Hispanic vote in the numbers required to claim the presidency, according to someone on the call.

Clinton did not directly address the idea of serving as Obama’s second in command, but did make clear that she would do whatever was required of her to help elect a Democrat to the White House in November...........
