Anyone remember several months ago, when Barack Obama grabbed the Democrat Partys nomination for President? The press and airwaves were full of the screams of rage from Hillary supporters who were certain, certain! That the nomination had been stolen from Ms. Clinton. All that we could see on TV for weeks were outraged women and a few metrosexual men staring wildly into the camera and screaming that Hillary had been cheated and been disrespected and thrown under the bus by Obama supporters. Nightly TV news began to look like sessions of the Massachusetts Legislature debating raising their own salaries. Again. We heard daily that Obama supporters would either stay home this November, vote for McCain, or write-in Hillary. NOBAMA groups were springing-up from Boston to Seattle. It looked like Obama would be crushed by this torrent of righteous outrage.
But a funny thing happened since then. All those outraged Hillary supporters disappeared. All that energy, that fury, that righteous indignation. Except for Harriett Christian still making noise on the national scene gone, she and the few like her out there now national jokes, their videos shown for laughs on Obama supporters blogs. The polls show Obama with a small but consistent lead over McCain (although its true that the polls ALWAYS show the Dem ahead, even when the Dem eventually loses). And the Outraged Hillary Supporters? Gone. Perhaps abducted by aliens from the planet Amazon. Perhaps dedicated to staying stoned until November 6. Perhaps off to a secret, privately owned island to regroup and repair. Or more likely, snuggly back in the embrace of Democrat Party Ubergovernment, which is promising them visibility and respect in the coming administration of The One. (Note to these ladies: a President Obama is going to set-up a card table in the White House cafeteria and thats as close as Joe Biden will get to giving advice to Barack. Womens issues? If you like Cynthia McKinney, youll LOVE his new Cabinet Department of Women's Affairs).
What the drooling Obama press tells us has become so manifestly untrue as to make picking stocks using their astrological signs a profitable exercise. John McCain, a tough, retired attack aircraft pilot who survived Communist hell for over five years and whom I personally admire, seems to have just run out of energy and ideas. He is looking and acting like hed like to tell you something but cant quite remember what it was (Dem Bank Scandal? ACORN stealing votes? Congressional criminals?) or where he put his hearing aid. He has become everyones nice but slightly dotty old, uncle who did something heroic in some war a long time ago but now basically sits down at the local coffee shop, telling war stories with his old buddies about how well he cooperated with the rest of his unit during wartime, while the waitress listens-in and wonders why Uncle John doesnt seem angry at her daughters school holding Conservatives Suck Day (bring a costume showing how bad conservatives are!). Outside the coffee shop, Obama, his sleeves rolled up and standing tall on a soap box, is holding the crowd with that unfriendly glare of his as he warns, in his itinerate preachers slightly menacing harangue, that they had better vote for him if they know whats good for them.
We know the prostitute press is a lost cause, despite the ever growing power of the web. Even if this is the last election to be controlled and thrown by the press, the damage coming with President Obama may not be repaired during our lifetimes. Well probably see http://www.sickofliberalliesunderground.com appear after the election. Perhaps the rest of us who arent Obama fans can join the ladies on Hillarys Island. I hope they serve drinks there with lots of rum and those little umbrellas. Nice place to train an army.
Return to The Nav Log
Some of the PUMAs are still going strong, and they have great information. Their forum is closed for registration, but check out HillaryClintonForum.net
Obama won’t win.
and lots of others.
I think the MSM WISHES they weren’t there.
They are amazing and bolder than many of us conservatives. Lord Love them!!!!
I check that site every day - those are some serious folks -well mannered and savvy. Their comments in support of John McCain and Sarah Palin are often more generous than some of our FReepers.
Their common theme is COUNTRY FIRST and DEFEAT OBAMA.
Good information and lots of updates even after having stopped new member registration.
I wish I shared your confidence.
I love the crew at HCF. I started lurking around the VP announcement. I hate the fact that registration is closed but I understand why it was done. They are on the ball and I always find something new when I visit.
It seems there should be a forum where there is common ground - they can't accept new registration right now, and may for whatever reason not want to be at our forum.
Could be between 3 and 6 million votes, depending upon what percentage of them vote Mc/P.
If closer to 6, then that’s the election, right there.
Game, set, and match.
YES, the PUMA’s are writing letters, emailing, making phone calls to media everyday. The MSM won’t give them credit, but they are still out there working their butts off for McCain/Palin, cause they won’t see NOBAMA elected after the rape of Hillary at the convention!
They are more organized than us too, sadly. They are doing things we should be doing.
Today I went to the republican hqs and picked up signs & intend to put them out in public areas this weekend. If each of us did 10 signs, what a difference this would make!!
They’re still out there and they’re still mad!
Check THIS out:
(and I do everything I can to stir them up. LOL)
Me, too. I visit them.
They’re still mad as h*ll, and you’re right- they are on the ball. They’re on top of the dirt.
I’ve visited two PUMA sites and overall the people on these forums are very polite. They aren’t the rabid radicals that support Obama.
I like to think of them as the adults of the Democrat party. I didn't think there were any left so it was nice to find out I was wrong.
They are still here:
“I like to think of them as the adults of the Democrat party.”
Great description! It would so great if there were more sane, polite Democrats like these woman who could have fundamental differences of opinion with conservatives without the vicious, victory at any cost thugs that back Obama.
“those are some serious folks -well mannered and savvy.”
That is my take as well, I have listened to some of their radio, it is very high quality stuff.
