i heard him thank michelle and his brothers and sisters, did anyone hear him thank his grandma (the one who raised him, not step-grandma in africa)?
He won with the manufactured delegates from Michigan. If Clinton cannot fight that one in court, they have really lost their touch. She actually ended up with more elected delegates than he did. There is no way I would quit in her position. Super Delegates have shown how fickle they are.
Reminds me of the freak shows in England...Obama and Clinton could have been circus freaks...maybe their current popularity is because our young people never learned anything about history because their liberal professors were more interested in promoting liberalism instead of substance. Snake oil politics never delivers positive change. I wonder if Obama’s ego is so stroked that he doesn’t have a clue to the fact that he could not deliver a millionth of what he has said.
When those tapes are released tomorrow morning, well.. oh wait, I meant when those polling numbers are released... oh never mind. I have to return to the bunker.
Lenora Fulani. In 1988, Fulania psychologistran as an independent and was the first black woman to appear on presidential ballots in all 50 states. She also ran in 1992.
First black Democrat presidential nominee. An amazing turn of events for the party that gave us the KKK, has a Klansman third in line of ascendency for the presidency, and opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 in greater numbers than the GOP.
None of the delegates were even supposed to count. Michagan was not supposed to count and Clinton herself said that. If the DNC had stuck by their guns, then neither candidate would have one any delegates from Michigan.
one should be won - too late to type.
I thought she was the one who could make a decision when the phone rang in the middle of the night.
Hillary’s speech tonight was pathetic. She gave some honor to Obama in general terms about how he had run a good campaign, but did not address the fact that he’s over the number of delegates needed for nomination. Nor did she concede, instead, saying she was making no decisions tonight. What the heck decision is there for her to make? She lost the nomination (barring unforeseen circumstances).
She’s going to meet with party leaders and check her e-mail as she asked people to e-mail her with suggestions going forward. Is she really going to read her e-mail where people suggest she shoot for the VP job, or run as a 3rd party candidate in the general election? I can’t believe some of the nonsense out of her mouth.
Obama stole half of Hillary's votes in Michigan, and the black racist never received a vote from the people.
It's really disgusting how the Democrats treat their own: No loyalty or fairness at all.
Heaven help us all if they run everything.
I saw a tiny bit of Obama’s speech, talking about a war that never should have been authorized (talk to your pals in the senate, mate!) and saying that the gas prices keep the unemployed from finding work, and to solve this, we need more caps on energy and pollution! Is this the kind of ignorant change that his voters support? Such appalling ignorance couldn’t possibly be serious!
Keep posting it, only bigger and bolder !
Even if it is just for our sake (LOL) she should take it all the way to the convention. There is no way I would give up now especially with the amount of stuff that’s come out about obama after many of the primaries were already done. I think the race is not necessarily over for her and that also she is still after VP if she can’t get POTUS.
Give the superdelegates a chance to have their say and rip the democrats to apart!
One week from now: OBAMA BECOMES FIRST MIXED RACE CANDIDATE TO MAKE THE COVER OF NEWSWEEK THREE TIMES OVER.
“...Clinton refuses to concede Democratic nomination”
Clinton tells entire nation...”Not tonight, I have a headache!”
A year ago I did not think such a headline was possible. Politics is indeed very strange.
“He won with the manufactured delegates from Michigan. If Clinton cannot fight that one in court, they have really lost”
Bingo. The wheels are probably already in motion. No, never sell the Clinton machine short.
“I thought she was the one who could make a decision when the phone rang in the middle of the night.”
Not so much....all we saw is her ANSWERING the phone (after how many rings???) :-)))
I was VERY surprised at her speech tonight, what I could stand to listen to, anyway. Many of the ratz over at the DU are going nuts over it.
The woman just won’t quit. Not that I mind the turmoil she’s causing!
“She lost the nomination (barring unforeseen circumstances).”
The last three words are KEY.
“It’s really disgusting how the Democrats treat their own: No loyalty or fairness at all.”
DUH - that’s why they’re Democrats.
“Heaven help us all if they run everything. “
yes, look at the horrendous disaster of them (already) running Congress!!!!!
“Is this the kind of ignorant change that his voters support? Such appalling ignorance couldnt possibly be serious!”
to your first question - they’re in love with the face and the voice; to your second statement - yes, it IS serious.
Think about how much destruction the media will bring to McCain once Hillary is gone.
It will be like the arctic battle scene in the Empire Strikes Back.
Obama's media will concentrate all their efforts on destroying McCain just like the Empire focused their big guns on the ill-fated power generator.
"Target sighted! Maximum firepower!"
They can’t do this to Hillary. Don’t they know who she is?
I am still astonished at Pelosi's abandonment of Hillary.
You would think that these old democrat folks would stick together, but there is clearly no room for loyalty in that sick bunch.
Yes, he thanked her and gave her credit for raising him.
I was wondering how he help contain the spread of nuclear weapons as a street activivist in Chicago as he said in his sermon tonight!
I thought she was the one who could make a decision when the phone rang in the middle of the night."This has been a long campaign and I will be making no decisions tonight."
Yeah . . .
You’re quite right. Obama is a dark mulatto and he took Clinton’s BLACK base....something she took for granted. So much for being the wife of the “first black president”.
The primaries have pointed out that there is no lie too small or too big for Hillary. Only a fool would trust her.
How very Presidential of her.
the witch is dead...
How about a new tagline...
Are you the official “tagline inspector”?? lol
I meant “how about I reference this in a new tagline” (for me).
(thanks for the unintentional reminder anyway)
This morning, its apparent her feet are still moving!
He did. She actually got the longest thank you of anyone.
Except that the party rules demanded that all the candidates remove themselves from the ballot. Obama complied, Hillary did not. Party rules also stated candidates couldn’t campaign in Florida. She sent Bill as her proxy, and did end up going there herself before the primary. She shouldn’t be able to win because broke the rules. I know some people on here want Hillary to win or at least be a thorn for Obama, but I just want her to go away.
