Skip to comments.The "3 M's" of Why Obama Won (Momentum, Money and Media)
Posted on 11/05/2008 9:18:50 AM PST by ceoinva
Obama won for three simple reason:
1) Momentum - This was a turn the page election, like Carter to Reagan. None of the other R candidates would have done much better, and maybe worse.
2) Money - $1B on BO says it all. With that kind of money you could elect a ham sandwich, especially if you unilaterally disarm a la McCain-Feingold.
3) Media - a legion of evidence to support this as you know. One example for now: vicious attacks/investigations on Palin vs. a complete pass for BO and JB. Oh, for bonus points: they helped Manufacture an "economic crisis" to lay down the predicate for BO to come in for the rescue.
and Materialism. The materialism of those who voted for him in their quest for their share of gubmint cheese.
Add in a “T” also for traitors. The number of Republicans and evangelical white christians who voted for him makes me want to puke.
what can I say? I agree with all 3, ESPECIALLY #3.
The economic crisis is not manufactured by the media. It is real.
ACORN, combined with a do-nothing Justice Department.
I would like to know where all this money came from?
How much did soros give in pre paid credit cards?
How much came from abroad?
How much came from buffet?
Will the media actually start doing their job now it is over and they got their messiah elected?
The media have been disgusting in this election and right now Russia is starting to act up again.
You forgot ‘mania’, ‘mindless’, ‘Mephistopheles’, among others.
The RINOs attacked Gov.Palin, her children, her background,
her wardrope, mercilessly.
What I find funny is that the Public Financiung of Elections that the dems have pushed for years is now DEAD! Who the hell would ever take that deal now that Barack has taken in $700 Million?
Where is the press decrying the effects of money on an election?? Oh yea, their guy won this time.
The amount money he had available is mind-blowing. Carpet bombing 24/7 ads like I’ve never seen.
Obama will owe a lot of favors to somebody.
#4) Morons: The people running the GOP who if elections are an intellectual discourse instead of knowing that it’s about campaigning which also means moving people’s emotions and gathering people together to actually want to vote for someone.
Since they slept through “Campaigning 101” we lost.
How do you thwart one of these?
BOYCOTT ALL MEDIA THAT HAS BEEN COMPLICIT TO THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN DURING THIS ELECTION!
Momentum, money, media, and McCain. Four Ms.
The McCain campaign should have not taken the public money either and tried to raise there own $$. I don’t think we will make that mistake again.
I wonder what McCain thinks about McCain/Feingold now?
2 and 3 led to 1. The economic massacre of Sept also created 1. W/o that, there was a different election.
You forgot McCain.
The man needed Ritalin, his campaign was all over the place on message.
