Update: and here it comes – I have it in the small extract from Hillary speech:

First, there must be no blank check when American taxpayers are on the hook for this much money.

Politico is proudly quoting Hillary’s idea as mouthed by Obama (I bet he wins the day again!)

We are still waiting for Obama to react to the  bailout.

The real leader, Hillary Clinton pushed out of this race for him, already has a statement

The American people deserve to know that this isn’t a blank check. While the need to address the current crisis is clear, I will only support steps that will prevent a widening crisis, tackle the worst kinds of abuse tolerated for too long by the Bush Administration, and address the root problems at work.

From the original link – it’s dated September 19!

Keeping it handy for comparison as I count down to the moment Obama will finally do his

Silent flip-flop. Amazingly, Slate is onto it

Compare the current “Seniors & Social Security” page with the previous version. Now, tell me why, oh why, would the Obama campaign decide to delete the following sentence: “[Obama] does not believe it is necessary or fair to hardworking seniors to raise the retirement age.” Is he trying to stoke anxiety about his position on Social Security?

I don’t know, but this changing platform surely looks like newspeak to me.

John McCain pretty much stopped the racism accusations – one of his biggest credit from me.

But it’s too juicy a bone to let go in the zeal to shove Obama down our throats.

Sanford University polled, and AP read that

Among white Democrats, Clinton supporters were nearly twice as likely as Obama backers to say at least one negative adjective described blacks well, a finding that suggests many of her supporters in the primaries — particularly whites with high school education or less — were motivated in part by racial attitudes.

What do you know? Every time we get profiled, McCain gets another vote. From someone actually offended by this. so keep it up!

Of course,  the purpose of doing this is two fold:

guilt people into vote for Obama if they don’t want to be called racist and

have a ready made explanation  for his loss

Story gets better from Faultline Usa:

Seems in their zeal to make the point, people and quotes are made up

The article fails to name the pollster who claimed to have called Cichon. When asked during my phone interview, Cichon denied speaking to any pollster on the phone.

What is she supposed to have said?

A pollster calling Sandra Cichon, a 60-year-old Democrat from Spring Hill, would hear her identify herself as an undecided voter. But is she really?

“I can’t imagine having a black president, and I think he’s inexperienced,” she told a reporter recently, eventually acknowledging she was leaning unenthusiastically toward McCain. “I don’t think we (Democrats) have a chance to be in the White House with Obama.”


Riverdaughter finds the burried lede in the AP article

Perhaps most noteworthy, the AP notes that the study itself found that “race is not the biggest factor driving Democrats and independents away from Obama.” It notes that “doubts about his competency loom even larger.”

After months and months of “get lost” and “who cares what you think?” some eventually realized what should be a basic truth in electoral politics – voters must be wooed.

Of course, being the arrogant self-centered idiots they are, they muse about it publicly.

Right on Huffington Post (the home of the memo on race)

Detailed advice on how to lie, patronize and stalk PUMAs are given:

Let the HRC voter vent.

Act empathic.

Do not praise Obama

Praise HRC.

and in the end

If you did your best but it didn’t work, leave the door open. Don’t lose it and attack the HRC supporter for being stupid, intransigent, short-sighted, emotional, unpatriotic, and thinking with her nether regions, even if those feelings are coursing inside you. Do not use the term “bitch,” even though McCain did.

Hillary supporters may not want to tell you that you’ve reached them. Assume it will take a few tries. And even if these voters don’t admit they’ve changed their minds, at a minimum, your attempt at taking one for the team may influence them enough to keep them from voting for McCain, or bad-mouthing Obama’s so-far wobbly candidacy.

So far, it all seems to me like what might be a Jehova Witnesses training session. If Jehova Witnesses thought the rest of the word are stupid heathens who deserve to die that is.

Of course, the author doesn’t have a clue. They still think we are the sad little fans, angered that “we lost”. Voting fraud never comes up. Only sexism – and that’s easily solved pointing the finger at what McCain has said or Palin believes.

And it probably comes in conflict with Obama’s directive of “getting in their faces” anyway.

The even funnier part comes in the comments. B0bots become angry, attack Hillary, her supporters and – of course the author – who is branded “pro-Hillary” while others maintain there’s no such thing as a PUMA (the word is never used, BTW)

Comments from PUMAs are for the most part kept out by the moderators. This one however made it

riverhippie See Profile I’m a fan of this user permalink

So… the party that cries that the republicans lie is advocating lying to Hillary suporters.

Why does this not surprise me?

But the bigger joke here – which I tried to post – is the offensive way in which they advertise publicly their contempt for us while, presumably trying to win us over.

I suppose they bought the media profile of us – we’re old, poor and low information – so no way can we be on the internet, let alone reading the very exclusive Huffington Post. They are safe plotting how to fool us there – because we are too stupid to find out.

So, after pondering on this for about 24 hours, i decided to spread it wide to the rest of the internet (on which, surprisingly, am right now)

As I was reading the article again, a familiar sense of deja vu came over me. of course this is nothing new! It’s the blue section of the guide (with the answers being all the other sections)
