Pumapac has a running list of women who received death threats from Obama&cult:

  • Riverdaughter
  • Digby
  • Diane at JSND
  • Murphy at Puma PAC
  • Paula Abeles

Adding Sheila Jackson Lee – per her statement at the Tavis Smiley event this year.

They put up a challenger for John Lewis whom they pressured into changing his support from Hillary to Obama – this wasn’t good enough for the Oborg.

Happily, that one went down in flames as Alegre reports


Hutchins

7,374

Lewis

32,097

Thomas

6,989

Totals

46,460

15.9% 69.1% 15.0% 100.0%

The B0bots did get 15% of the vote in his precinct in their pathetic show of power and vindictiveness.

And then there’s the part that really got me: they demanded that Hillary throw Ricky Lieberman under the bus – and …she did.

Oh, I know this is not new. Republicans demaded Paul Wellstone to theow democrats.com under the bus – and he also did it. I guess it was easier to take when it came from the other side – knives in the back are worse.

I have endured and seen up close cyber-abuse from the Oborg – and know that it was directed by the campaign. But it seems now it’s escalating.

I am more determined than ever to do whatever it takes to stop these dangerous people to get any actual power to abuse.

Update

Hillary and off the table Pelosi issued statements on this

.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Sen. Hillary Clinton have already issued blistering statements warning that the definition of abortion would extend to birth control that is regularly covered.

B0 is still thinking about it….

First the news of Jr’s government pulling all the stops:

In a spectacular act of complicity with the religious right, the Department of Health and Human Services Monday released a proposal that allows any federal grant recipient to obstruct a woman’s access to contraception. In order to do this, the Department is attempting to redefine many forms of contraception, the birth control 40% of Americans use, as abortion.

That is bad and underhanded enough – but makes me think that only 2 days ago B0 was deciding to also “underplay abortion”

By shifting his focus toward pay issues and away from abortion, Obama places himself in a far less polarized environment, and steers clear of the “ick factor” that many Americans, regardless of their political views, associate with the practice of abortion.

which seems to be just what this guy wanted

Abortion reduction should be a central Democratic Party plank in this election,

let’s see, flip-flop boy, will you issue a statement on that one, or stick with equal pay in spite of the fact that your own female staffers are paid less than men?

Updating this with an excellent essay from Savage Politics

Looking at all the polling data available on Obama versus McCain on Real Clear Politics website, 147 polls in all since November 2007, a very interesting pattern emerges. I pulled the data provided at that site into a spreadsheet, and within a few minutes, saw some things I did not expect to see.

When all the polls are averaged, Obama averages 46%. When you look at February to present, to analyze what happened when he really was gaining momentum, Obama averages 46%. And when you just look at the polls from June 3rd forward, when Obama ‘cinched’ the nomination, Obama averages 47% of the vote. This pattern is much more flat that I would have anticipated, and indicates that Obama is having a very difficult time in getting more than 50% of the vote.

and on that fundraising for June

Obama, whose campaign has been so proud to taught his 1.5 million donors during the months of February, March & April, changed it’s tone in yesterday’s campaign release. In yesterday’s release, David Plouffe stated, “Hundreds of thousands of ordinary people contributed…”. Naturally, I pulled out the calculator only to grin at the reality that Obama, while raising a record $52 million, saw his donor base cut in half in June. That’s right, just 764,000 donors compared to the 1.5 million who donated to his campaign in April.

remember when B0 said he is the only candidate who can redraw the map?

Now that his campaign manager begs for pennies, he does so in a video where he carelessly allowed a map to show behind him:

Do you see the blue South there? very little blue indeed! Give B0bots, give! those caucus states are as good as in the bag. Not Obama’s.

update with John Stewart’s take on this which HAS to be the last word ( a video is included at the link)

here’s Jon’s proposed  statement for B0:

Barack Obama is in no way upset about the cartoon that depicts him as a Muslim extremist. Because you know who gets upset about cartoons? Muslim extremists! Of which Barack Obama is not. It’s just a fucking cartoon!

Update

yes, I did say Stewart was the ultimate – but this only confirms it:

the cartoonist was on Charlie Rose last night all defensive. Charlie played Jon’s clip and the guy lit up and said “I just sent him a keg of beer”

Irony overload today:

New York Times made this startling discovery – and they needed a poll for this

he results of the poll, conducted against the backdrop of a campaign in which race has been a constant if not always overt issue, suggested that Mr. Obama’s candidacy, while generating high levels of enthusiasm among black voters, is not seen by them as evidence of significant improvement in race relations.

No shit, Sherlock! It wouldn’t have anything with this by any chance?

Sen. Barack Obama’s presidential campaign has prepared a detailed memo listing various instances in which it perceived Sen. Hillary Clinton’s campaign to have deliberately played the race card in the Democratic primary.

or could it have anything to do with calling entire states of Democrats racist and pretty much anyone who doesn’t worship Obama?

Finds the poll:

More than 80 percent of black voters said they had a favorable opinion of Mr. Obama; about 30 percent of white voters said they had a favorable opinion of him.

And in the B0 campaign lingo that means 70% of whites are racist. because worshiping B0 is in the prescribed order of things – any deviation from that and foul play is suspected (remember “the Bradley effect” in New Hampshire?)

Poll goes on to M0

There was even racial dissension over Mr. Obama’s wife, Michelle: She was viewed favorably by 58 percent of black voters, compared with 24 percent of white voters.

I think it’s time for NOW, which stood silent while Hillary was called a bitch and worse to jump into action an condemn those 76% “sexist” whites…

The B0 campaign was never designed to close racial divide – lame “post-racial” slogans nothwithstanding.

The race card is being used constantly to silence critics into submission.

When Hillary once said that working class voters go for her according to a poll, Donna cried race: “Blacks are working class too!” So Hillary said “white working class” and the calls of racism reached biblical proportions.

On a forum that used to be once progressive, someone posted:

“they weren’t real B0 supporters. They just wanted to get street creds that they were not racist”

So, NYT, your poll misses one point: this run is setting racial relations back about 50 years.
