In the feel good Murdoch title, his AP titles poll results reassuringly
Poll: Most Clinton supporters back Obama
We go several paragraphs of BS to find out that “MOST” barely means 53% – hardly a cause to celebrate – when we are talking 18 Million voters.
They happily compare this number to the 40% from April and fill the article with all sort of “lifetime Democrat” type examples,
And what percentage did say they’ll vote McCain?
“Twenty-three percent of Clinton’s backers picked Republican John McCain over Obama. Of the rest, 16 percent were undecided, 5 percent were for independent candidate Ralph Nader and 3 percent said someone else.”
So, the buried lead is
8,460,000 voters – Democratic voters – will NOT support BO.
Finally, some of the B0 apologists woke up and smell the hypocrisy!
K0 on W’s FISA law 5 months ago
Now it begins to look like the bureaucrats of the Third Reich, trying to protect the Krupp family, the industrial giants, re-writing the laws of Germany for their benefit.
K0 on B0 supporting FISA
Senator Obama also refusing to cower even to the left on the subject of warrantless wiretapping. He’s planning to vote for the FISA compromise legislation, putting him at odds with members of his own party . . .
Greenwald continues to analyse
Olbermann’s full-scale reversal on how he talks about these measures now that Obama — rather than George Bush — supports them. On an almost nightly basis, Olbermann mocks Congressional Democrats as being weak and complicit for failing to stand up to Bush lawbreaking; now that Obama does it, it’s proof that Obama won’t “cower.” Grave warning on Olbermann’s show that telecom amnesty and FISA revisions were hallmarks of Bush Fascism instantaneously transformed into a celebration that Obama, by supporting the same things, was leading a courageous, centrist crusade in defense of our Constitution.
Indeed, Glen. It’s what we experienced during this primary. With everyone – including you. Glad you rejoined the reality based community.
Jack Tapper muses about this
It’s one thing for Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, to distance himself from his minister, his home lender, his pledge to try to work out an agreement to use public financing, or the importance of telecom immunity in the FISA bill.
But his own middle initial?
he B.H.O. shorthand is frowned upon inside Mr. Obama’s campaign headquarters, a warning for any Clinton staff members coming aboard.”
Clearly, however, the middle name “Hussein” is not an automatic crowd-winner, and the Obama campaign is sensitive to any reminder — no matter how internal or benign — of said name.
I am relieved to find out that B0 is still legal. I can thing of a certain forum that considered “B0” racist…And I know why too
But…Some people’s trash is other people’s gold:
Maybe their moms kicked them out of their basements or merely cut off their allowance but
Wall Street Journal says
Sen. Obama has said his army of 1.7 million small donors is the essence of what public financing strives to accomplish and is why he opted out of the “broken” system.
But his small-donor network is showing signs of fatigue.
“As Election Day gets closer, Obama’s substantially slower fund-raising pace raises questions about whether the endurance of his vaunted fund-raising machine and its predominantly small donor base are being overestimated by pundits,” a recent analysis by the nonpartisan Campaign Finance Institute said
It’s not really a surprise that Reagan’s fan, beneficiary of this year media made teflon doesn’t want the fairness doctrine.
I mean let’s face it, Kerry and Edwards may have wanted it, Hillary too, but the crowned darling Messiah of the media would only stand to lose – at least for now. So:
“Sen. Obama does not support reimposing the Fairness Doctrine on broadcasters,” press secretary Michael Ortiz said in an e-mail to B&C late Wednesday.
“He considers this debate to be a distraction from the conversation we should be having about opening up the airwaves and modern communications to as many diverse viewpoints as possible,”
and one wonders why
..” increasing minority ownership of broadcasting and print outlets.”
Where’s your “progressive” candidate now , ers?
