Obama unfavorables hit all-time high
The News Buckit ^ | 3/22/08 | Patrick Ishmael

Posted on 03/22/2008 8:23:47 PM PDT by LdSentinal

While Obama supporters fall all over themselves extolling the campaign's "turnaround" following the Wright controversy (evidenced by a Gallup poll published today showing Obama up by three,) I'll just toss out a contrary poll from Scott Rasmussen that shows Hillary up by two -- a swing of three in her direction.

And that's not all.
On Saturday, Obama’s favorable ratings slipped a little further—46% favorable, 51% unfavorable. Before the Pastor Problem became big news, Obama was viewed favorably by 52%. One month ago, he was viewed favorably by 56%. McCain is viewed favorably by 54% of voters nationwide and unfavorably by 43%. For Clinton, those numbers are 43% favorable, 54% unfavorable.
The last time he was even close to this territory was November 20, 2007 when his favorables were at 44%, his unfavorables at 50%, and not a whole lot of people knew much about him.

Obama may come out of this tailspin, but Andrew, to say that he has based off of one poll is a bit much, don'tcha think?

“evidenced by a Gallup poll published today showing Obama up by three,”

I was concerned for about 10 seconds ... then I found out that it was Obama v Clinton.

The fact is that Obama’s speech could be a hit with the liberals and a miss with everyone else, because he clung to the myths the liberals believe, while not answering in any way the concerns people not dyed-in-wool liberals have. Those concerns are not about Wright’s ‘racist’ statements, but the question of his *patriotism*. Wright doesnt believe in America, the churh Obama chose calls Africa the motherland, so where does Obama’s allegience really lie? What sort of America does Obama believe in?

It’s the Patriotism, Stupid!

Sarge, we just need to keep hammering and getting out the word about:

The truth regarding Obama's and Trinity Church's Black Liberation Theology.

It is who Obama is and where his core beliefs have been formulated over the last 20 years.

...and it aint traditional, and it aint Christian.

At this point, which candidate would get beat worse in November? If Obama gets the nomination and blows general election big time, I could imagine his senate seat could be vulnerable in 2010. Hillary could possibly get the nomination now, but I really seriously doubt she could get the nomination in 2012 if Obama gets it this year due to all the bad blood. It looks like this election cycle could permanently knock out two long term DemocRAT contenders.

Let's hope he gets nominated.

If he does, he'll get shredded. Hillary can't really attack him because she’ll alienate her own base in doing so. Much of his success is because of her handicaps in dealing with him.

The longer he stands center stage the more he'll crumble. “Change” is a nice slogan, but people do ask pesky questions for which he has no reasonable and feasible answers. As people dig, dirt comes up and more is to come. Once in a battle with McCain, the kids’ gloves come off. Far more left than even Hillary, he'll have a hard time getting the independent and undecided votes. People do look at a resume, and with no executive, business, or military experience, young and only a junior Senator at that, his attempt to spin this into his campaign as being a positive because he's the “Washington outsider” won't work. Much of his success is because he was an unknown with no record. Something which again in all reality is a negative and he spun to a positive. But again, anyone more analytical wants a record and looks for the known quantity because this gives indication as to the outcomes and decisions made once in the position.

Obama is comparable to a kid straight from college walking in at a major firm such as GM or EDS and asking to be CEO. He’s a well dressed kid. He’s attractive and can speak well. He uses lots of “buzz words” when talking. He even has good poise, but his resume fits on 1/3 of one page, unless you include Boy Scout summer camps and his college job. Let’s admit it, Geraldine Ferraro was correct in her analysis and of course when she states the near obvious, she’s too is now labeled a racist. Obama is the best choice of action by the Democrats in so far that it makes a positive outcome for us more probable.

Obama belongs to a "Black Liberation Theology" Church that is FOUNDED on the hatred on Whites.

He followed a Pastor for 20 years who is the most ignorant, racist, America-hating hate-hustler this side of Louis Farrahkan.

He spent much of his early adult life smoking dope, snorting cocaine and being mentored by unabashed COMMUNISTS and protege's of Saul Alinsky.

He married an America-hating Black-Radical who followed the writings of Stokley Carmichael and the Black Panthers of the 60's and who, based on her embarassingly narcissistic and academically sophomoric Princeton thesis, should never have been allowed to graduate high school let alone get into Princeton.

He took money from known TERRORISTS who were part of the Weather Underground.

He maintained close personal and financial ties with a corrupt convicted Chicago crook named Tony Rezko who bailed him out of financial trouble, bought him a home and then got convicted of extortion, fraud and money laundering.

He WHINED about being asked "like eight questions" at a simple press interview while trying to convince America that he's competent enough to be PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

He somehow managed to serve as President of Harvard Law Review without ever publishing a even SINGLE piece of written work.

He even wrote a book describing how he "found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother's race."

He'll even throw his own grandma from the train for political expediency and say that she's just a "typical White person" who was "bred" to harbor racist views.

All that yet he refuses to wear a pin with the American flag on it because he thinks THAT sends the wrong message.

OBAMA: -- (stammering) the odds of me getting elected have always been, uh, lower than, uh -- than some of the other conventional candidates, and if I bring something to this conversation, it's going to be because I do what I did yesterday, which is hopefully open up a new conversation about a new direction of the country.

RUSH: I'm beginning to think that we might be looking at the first stages of the slice of bread in the toaster. Pfft! People are hitting the lever. He's not quite toast yet. But do you realize what he just said? He just lowered expectations here by about half the height of Mount Kilimanjaro. Let me translate this for you. He said, "I have been shocked into remembering I didn't stand a prayer anyway because I'm black. You know, my odds of getting elected have always been lower than some of the other conventional candidates, and if I bring something..." So he tried to get by with transcending race. He was forced into making this speech. Now he's the candidate of race. This is a sympathy play; this is a victim play. Obama is now asking us to look at him as a victim.

Democrats: Chaos, Chaos, Chaos!
Obama plays victim; Hillary flip-flops on Michigan.

Why would they not be? Despite MSM attempts to protect him—the Chicago newspapers have not reported the “typical white person” insult—word that Obama was and remains a twenty year member of a virulent anti-American, anti-white “church” has leaked out through the internet and talk radio. If people begin to look closely at his 1995 book, it will only get worse. Obama tells how he struggled with his identity, finally opted for “Black” and began to despise white people, including his own family, once that option was decided. He described his ridiculously short stint in a post college private sector job as “being behind enemy lines.” What a jerk this guy is!

I love it. It means there are still many good people left in this country. I think most people are just misinformed. Otherwise, they would never back someone like Obama. He is definitely a step backwards.

His ascendancy to the presidency would literally start a political civil war. And it would spill over into other areas of society. It wouldn't be pretty. The Dummicrats never give poeple enough time to assimilate to each other and they antagonize and divide purposely.

If Obama gets the nomination and blows general election big time, I could imagine his senate seat could be vulnerable in 2010

That's unlikely, since Illinois Republicans don't have a candidate for any state-wide office. Obama won the senate seat because his original opponent (Jack Ryan)was derailed by his ex-wife, a Hollywood chick made famous for wearing a skin-tight costume and funny face make-up on a TV space show, who complained about going to sex clubs.

Ryan was replaced by Alan Keyes. That went nowhere and Obama swept in. Too bad, because a serious Republican opponent in 2004 might have gotten something out about Jeremiah Wright back then.

But, it's unlikely that Obama will win the general election, so this will be his one chance to do this. After this, it will be Teddy Kennedy relection campaigns, where he is constantly explaining how he wasn't there each time Jeremiah went off the deep end.

Just What Did Obama Know About Wright's Past Sermons? (Plenty)

“Barack Obama either agreed with what was preached from the Trinity pulpit, or he tuned it out and stayed around pretending to for political reasons. To say he stayed for 20 years but doesn't agree with Wright's preaching is incredible denial. It'd be like a man buying White Sox season tickets for 20 years, attending the games, and saying he's not a fan.”

Obama’s supporters want us to ignore this story… just push it under the rug. While they’ll align Republicans with any obscure pastor who does or says something controversial, they’re trying to convince us that Obama’s 20-year long close relationship with Wright, including his effective endorsement of him, his church and rhetoric with a $22,500 donation in 2006 is irrelevant.

“When Obama decided against wearing an American flag pin, we may all have been a bit too quick to accept his rationale, too quick to find that issue unimportant. Now, that American flag pin has gotten a lot bigger for a lot of us, especially in light of what may have been and may still be Obama’s deeper, and, perhaps, secret, less than patriotic beliefs about America.”

“Wright says that blacks can’t be expected to sing God Bless America because of racism. Obama doesn’t salute the flag during the National Anthem. That sure strikes me as an amazing coincidence since Obama swears he never heard Wright say anything against America.”

Here is the link to the Star Spangled Banner video with obama standing there without his hand over his heart...

Notice her ear ring!

McCain may nominate strict constructionists to the Supreme Court, or, more likely, unpredictable middle-of-the-road types. Obama or Clinton would choose the most radical Marxists they can find -- there is no doubt about that. After that, the Bill of Rights will apply to terrorists and common criminals but not to ordinary Americans. You will have plenty of time in the re-education camps to reflect on your vote (or failure to vote). If the Supreme Court had a solid conservative majority and we were not at war, it might be a good time to teach the RINOs a lesson. Unfortunately, we have no good choices so all we can do for now is minimize the possible damage.
