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.
FYI...my latest on the race bating by the Obama campaign and the MSM.
Thanks for the optimistic ‘note’ here.
Why is McPain missing in action on this?
Is McCain a POW to politically correct, gentlemanly babble?
It’s because he’s RED.
Hey I agree with all of what you’re saying, but we have to remember McCain is not without his foibles (Keating) and that Obama has also reached across the aisle in his short time in office. Our best offense is also being able to prep for a good defense. Still gooo job on above
I believe it is accurate and that there is more to it than the DNC, Obama, and the MSM want to admit...that's why they are attacking it and lableing it racist...they want to marginalize it if they can.
But I think it is too late. The cat's out of the bag.
I believe that if people took a little time to find out what socialism is and thing look at McCain and Obama, they would see where Obama will take this country. Obama believes in sharing the wealth.....socialism. My biggest concern about him is who is controlling him. I look at his past associates and they all believe in communism. Is this what people really want for the US?
Give’em hell Jeff:-()
He has sold to his soul to Karl Marx and that makes him RED.
Many of the 527s are putting out good info on the connections Obama has to these virulaent anti-Americans as well.
You’re counting on the hope that the Obamamaniacs and ACORN haven’t already stolen this election. I’m afraid they may have.
As if this sort of browbeating by the MSM would change the vote of anyone who would vote against Obama strictly because of his appearance.
Anyone who is really racist doesn't give a rat's hindparts what anyone thinks of it, and probably has a few choice things to say about the media as well.
It most certainly is "because he's black".
If Barack Obama, son of a black Kenyan graduate student who left him as a child to be raised by a white American mother had been Barry Olsen, son of a white Swedish graduate student who left him as a child to be raised by a white American mother, .......
....... do you think the racist liberals would be giving the time of day to a first term U.S. Senator whose only prior experience was being a "community organizer" and a State Legislator with a habit of voting "Present"?
This is the dirties election ever.
It wreaks of corruption and voted fraud already.
McPain must STEP UP.
I don’t know if it amounts to a large percentage or not, but there are a significant number of Democrats who will not vote for 0Bama simply because he is black (if only half so.)
I know several who fit into this category and they’ve told me exactly that. They can’t vote for him because he’s black, They quickly add that they can’t vote for a Republican, so they’ll just not vote for president this time. They tell me they’re not alone; they know a lot of others just like them.
Are there enough of these people to swing the election? No clue. Too many unknown factors at this point in time.
On top of that, it is clear from his long-term, willful associations, and his positions that he is an abject marxist and therefore, RED.
I keep seeing them bring this up like they are really scared about it happening. Just a couple of days ago little Chrissy seemed so gleeful about the fake polls but then got serious and deadpanned to the guest on his show about the Bradley effect and if the polls really reflected what was actually gonna happen. Folks, they are worried about their polls, they too know that the reality is different.
We shall see. I believe they most certinly are trying to do so...but I also believe that numbers are lining up the other way to counter it. Hopefully, if we work our hearts out, and have faith, they will.
Never before has this Republic been this close to electing such a dead-soul leftist as president. Yes, dead soul leftist. What else can you call a man who would consciously try to protect infanticide, as his empowering way to prevent erosion to the Roe v Wade culture of abortion on demand?
Resume of: B HUSSEIN OBAMA

THIS IS THE TRUTH FOLKS!! NOTHING TO DO WITH RACE!
B Hussein scares the hell out of me.
Keep the community organizer out of the White House
“I believe that McCain-Palin are very well situated to win, and potentially win bigger than the MSM, the pundits, and the DNC imagine.”
Jeff, I couldn’t possibly agree with you more.
It doesn’t mean we can let up either — we still have to roll up our sleeves and do the work...but by God this thing isn’t over.
And besides, I don’t own a white flag...and I rather die than to wave one personally.
The VAST majority of people opposing Obama do so because of his positions, his associations, and his attitudes.
No doubt there are some percent who are racist, but, IMHO, it is a very small number compared to the whole.

His associations with the 'hate whitey' crowd for years and years are revolting.
The only time touted by his supporters, he took it all back shortly afterwards.
RE: “....... do you think the racist liberals would be giving the time of day to a first term U.S. Senator whose only prior experience was being a “community organizer” and a State Legislator with a habit of voting “Present”?
OF COURSE NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Even Geraldine Ferraro said it early in the campaign, but was shot down by her own party. The whole thing is disgusting.
I agree that McCain must step up. He can probably do that best by unshackling and unbridling Sarah and letting her take the message to the people all over this country. But he himself must also be in that fight, actively.
Read on almost every story on every poll that they say in fine print that they oversampled DEM’s, Blacks and sheeple !
( I um......added sheeple)
Reached across the aisle? Astonishing! Would you grasp a dripping with the blood of innocent children killed in infanticide Obama hand ‘reaching across the aisle’? ... Yeah, I expect you would. I just love it when agitprops come on FreeRepublic and claim a dead-soul leftists has ‘reached across the aisle’.
You know, he is of mixed-race parentage.
That makes him a NEWSPAPER.
Black and White and RED all over.
I was raised in Texas by parents from the deep south. I understand that there is some of that sentiment. But myself, and all of my deep south relatives, (many of them old conservative democrats who went in huge numbers for Reagan), would vote for someone like Clarence Thomaas in an intant over Obama or other far leftists...white, black, red, yellow, or brown.
McPain MUST lead the charge.
Sarah shouldn’t be the only one carry HIS water.
That said, you left out "Obama is a lawyer" from your list of reasons why some dems won't vote for him. Doesn't matter whether he's a white lawyer or a black lawyer, he's still a lawyer. Doesn't matter he's a white crook or a black crook, he's still a crook. The Age-Old question of what percentage of lawyers are crooks needs a askin'! This month we're a answerin' that question.
Apart from the MSM and Obama campAign trying to manufacture the illusion of him rweaching across the aisle, I know of no time he did so for anything of substance, or particularly to buck his own leadership. The man is the most partisan leftist in the Senate.
It's because She's a Hottie!
Every guy in America was thinking, "She's winking at ME!"
(And then either their wife caught them, or they remembered Todd...)
The Anglo American has been unable to effectively deal with a Negro candidate. The issues of Blackness and the mortgage crisis come to mind. The certainty of reparations(Wealth Transfer)if B. Hussein is elected.The increase in discrimination against white’s in employment and college admissions. There will even be a change in history i.e. it is becoming increasingly obvious that blacks won WWII. MacArthur, Nimitz, Ike were front men for a brilliant group of blacks working behind the scene due to the then climate of hate.

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."

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?
