Posted on 10/04/2008 8:27:09 AM PDT by Jeff Head
Recent main stream media and other pollsters have (again) played the "race card" (funny that the Obama campaign, the MSM, and the DNC are the only ones who seem to do this) by insinuating that the reason a fairly good number of democrats, particularly white democrats, may not support Barack Hussein Obama, is because he is black.
Apart from the assertion itself being racist, I beg to differ.
As a result of my fairly popular AUDACITY OF TRUTH and my SARAH PALIN TRUMPS OBAMA_BIDEN sites, I have spoken to many democrats via email, on forums, and some even by phone. Most of them are rather moderate, but some of them fairly staunch. A surprising number are not supporting Obama.
Not because "he is black".
Here, let me list the reasons I have been given via email and on forums such as the PUMA sites and others.
My experiences may not be "scientific" from a polling or demographic standpoint... but I question some of the so-called scientific polls that (when you push into their supporting data) use a fairly large disproportionate number of democrats vs republicans...and then when Obama is winning by 2-5% the results are trumpeted as some kind of "break through" for him.
- THE WAY MANY OF THEM FEEL THAT OBAMA, THE MSM, THE DNC, AND OTHERS TREATED HILLARY. They feel that Obama, the MSM, the DNC, NOW, etc. have shown their true colors and that their commitment to women and breaking through the glass ceiling is a sham.
- OBAMA'S TIES TO WRIGHT, AYERS, & REZKO. Many of them know intrinsically that these people, with whom Obama has willfully built his political career, are not friends of this Republic...even the more socialist republic some of them want to see instituted.
- OBAMA'S STATEMENTS ABOUT HOW HE WOULD HANDLE FOREIGN AFFAIRS HAVE DEEPLY TROUBLED SOME OF THEM. Many of these people, despite their liberal leanings, like Liberman for example, want America protected from and want to defeat the abject enemies of this nation.
- JOHN MCCAIN IS VIEWED AS A MAVERICK BY THESE PEOPLE WHO WILL REACH ACROSS THE AISLE TO THEM. They feel that McCain is an acceptable alternative in their desire to defeat Obama and set up Hillary for 2012.
- SARAH PALIN ON THE TICKET. This goes back to the first reason. Even though her views are in direct opposition to their own, and even though they see the threat she poses to Hillary in 2012 if a McCain-Palin ticket is elected, there is something about her home-spun, and in the face of Obama ways that a lot of these people like, and they are committed to their ideal of breaking the so-called glass ceiling.
Anyhow, based on my own experiences with people from all over the nation via my sites, I believe that McCain-Palin are very well situated to win, and potentially win bigger than the MSM, the pundits, and the DNC imagine.
...or, more likely, they do see it in their internal data and they fear it.

Article: Obama's Foul Weather Friends
By Scott Swett and Roger Canfield
"As a gesture of solidarity, the Vietnamese who Dohrn met in Budapest presented her with a ring made from an American aircraft shot down over North Vietnam. Bill Ayers would receive a similar ring while meeting with Vietnamese communists in Toronto. He later recalled being so moved by the gesture that he 'left the room to cry.' He said, 'I realized...America was an evil... and that I was... living inside the belly of the beast...' "
From David Horowitz's FrontPageMag.com/DiscoverTheNetworks.org:
"FBI files from 1976, recently made public under the Freedom of Information Act, confirm the connections between Weatherman, Havana, and Moscow. Weatherman leaders like Mark Rudd traveled illegally to Havana in 1968 to engage in terrorist training. There, camps set up by Soviet KGB Colonel Vadim Kotchergine were educating Westerners both in Marxist philosophy and urban warfare."
Much more on the ObamaRat-commie connections at my FR Home/About page. Everything there is linked directly to its source. I've now added within-page links and a 'clickable' table of contents which makes it easy to hop around to the various sections:
Thank you for all you do.
Vote for the Hottie!
Someone owes it to America to bring out the truth, at least raise some serious questions, about Obama, and the only someone who can do it, (and force the media’s hand) is McCain. The media is caught up in their multicultural fantasy, and it is going to take a sledge hammer to knock them out of it. They’ve been so busy with all of their hate Bush rhetoric, knowing full well that it is contrived, they can’t get their minds around the fact that their idol is dirty, real dirty.
At this point, I don't care how Obama is defeated. I thought for a long time that Hillary would take Obama out, but as vicious as she is, she could not accomplish the task.
Now, if it has to be old fashoned, down and dirty racism, so be it. If there are still people out there who will not vote for a black man, in this case, hurrah for them. We can deal with them later if a Conservative black person chooses to run for POTUS.
BTW....I am wondering how the "polls" are affected by operation chaos. I have never been polled, but if and when some pollster calls, I will be a died in the wool Obama supporter....(alls fair in love and war?)
In each of our own spheres of influence, we have to bring the truth to our fellow Americans and do it in such numbers that it is unavoidable.
Articles like this, sites like FR and the AUDACITY OF TRUTH, help do that.
We need to multiply that by tens of millions.
You are weclome...please spread the word via email and word of mouth.
I can NOT believe I just typed that when 8 years ago........ :)
I am convinced that demonic influence is at work. Why else would otherwise rational people follow so irrationally a man so obviously aligned with evil things like infanticide?
Good work my FRiend.
Killing alive, struggling newborns is infanticide. As best I can recall—and I’m 63 so the presidents you listed are all people I remember from their terms in office—none of the men used prtoection for killing already born children as an empowerment factor for their political capital. Barack’ACORN’Obama has. Yeah, I’d say he is the most blatant dead-soul leftist in our nation’s history to run for president.
Obama's hordes, acorn and the brown shirts, are operating in the open this year.
There is some talk but little action to oppose them: Remember that they were specifically included in the first House bail out bill!
(I'm reminded of an old comedy line about 'a station wagon full of nuns..', you can't argue with them and expect to win.)
What I'd really like to see is some pubby court action demanding a hold on late registrations, 'early voting', provisional votes, and the like that would assure some level of confirmation before those votes could be counted - and disqualification of ALL of them where any misuse was discovered.
That and a requriement to show real need in order to vote absentee.
Someone burnt an Obama sign here in OKC and the demoncrats are screaming “racism”. They claim that the only sign among many for demoncrates in someone’s yard that is being stolen is obamas therefore it must be racism.
Racism? um, what color were the signs?
But the country does not deserve to be put in the hands of a glib and cocky know-it-all, who has accomplished absolutely nothing beyond the advancement of his own career with rhetoric, and who has for years allied himself with a succession of people who have openly expressed their hatred of America.
Put another way, the white guilt card isn’t as effective as the leftist power brokers have hoped that it would be. Ever notice the most common deflection used by people who’ve been charged with racism or sexism or being homophobic is that they have friends who are (fill in the blank)? Many Democrats (and Republicans) have worked to tear down the barriers for minorities & the thanks that they’ve been getting for it is to be called bigots if they don’t toe the party line.
...and there is some success in that in these times as they realize how badly they have been used.
But, when it comes to abortion, the 2nd amendment, class warfare economic and taxation tactics, etc., as soon as the Obamanation is defeated and tthose who continue holding those positions put forth a candidate that is so minded, it will be back to opposing them on principle.
