Today may be the Corporate Media's last chance to spin Obama towards the nomination.
And they will not miss out on the opportunity. Clinton Derangement Syndrome will reach heights never before witnessed.

The surreal Clinton hatred on MSNBC today is just a preview of the kind of get out the Obama vote we can expect. Hillary's victories in New Hampshire and Nevada were quickly buried under stories of tears and meanness and racism and other kitchen sinks. Today's Obama victory in South Carolina will see nothing even remotely similar.

There will be an unrelenting media celebration that will continue up to Super Tuesday. The Carolina victory will be spun as a just repudiation of the Clinton's meanness and racism and all-around general evilness and a loving embrace of Obama's bipartisan dream of a united America bringing peace and prosperity to an eager world waiting to be led to the New Jerusalem where lambs and lions will cavort together and the sheep and the goats will need no separation. And if that's not enough, the celebration will be paralleled by frenzied cries for a national rebuke of the Clinton Machine of Ultimate Darkness on February 5.

It will be a week and a half where all the media will attempt to manufacture a reality straight from the darkest recesses of Chris Matthews' rancid mind. It's not going to be pretty and if Hillary can withstand that onslaught, she can withstand anything.

2. Oh, please
What an incredibly one-sided interpretation. Please try to look at things fairly instead of through an "everybody hates clinton" filter.

3. The anti-Clinton atmosphere predominates, together with the Obama-as-saint mood in the so-called...
..."liberal" media. I don't see it as a one-sided interpretation. More like reflective of the facts.

4. Why are people in such a hurry to lose an election?
Crown Hillary now and the dirt will start immediately.

11. As long as the actual votes are counted by machines, I'll remain totally
sceptical about who wins any Primary election.

No explanation of the topsy-turvy figures in the NH election count has been forthcoming. The MSM don't want to know about it, and the DINO Democrats don't, either. The later the reported figures came out, the lower the figure of Kucinich's initial vote-count fell! Another candidate's whole family voted for him, yet the machines registered no votes for him at all.

The most laughably villainous feature, at least, of the NH election - if I understand the matter correctly - is that the final figures seem to have been arrived at with all the precision of an algorithm! And not for the first time in the past 8 years, for sure.

12. You can see it...
They already said before the election that Obama was going to win it,the pundits were looking down and gloomy anytime they mentioned that Hillary may win it. They said Hillary knew that the numbers were low but, they acted as though they were shocked. Tim russert almost shit his pants he was so excited about it.In the next week they will go in for the kill on Hillary. If Obama wins then all of the questions they have not asked will then be released and it won't be pretty.

14. Your post is sad. Obama has won big and he deserves the good press.
Why do you try to rain on his parade?

20. Good press for him, but why the vicious attacks on Hillary?
Edited on Sat Jan-26-08 09:58 PM by robbedvoter
That's actually NOT deserved. Why the lie she didn't concede for example?

17. Congratulates Senator Obama" HRC.....but I will say this south
carolina vote will not make a difference on 2/5...Over-all hrc will maintain the leads in all these states and her campaign will work harder and just like tonight HRC will be doing all the speech making and Bill will be used to talk up the main issue facing the people today and that is the economy. If obama comes after HRC issue related it will be HRC doing the talking...This was the plan all along once South Carolina was over...It is over and now after the mediawhores have their spin for tonight and tomorrow will try to convince folks that obama is really "the annointed One" For the events upcoming on his campaign .....Monday wednesday and Friday walking on water.....tuesday and thursday turning water into wine.....and on saturday and sunday preach to the people and pass the baskets......

Obama: 47% positive, 16% negative.
Clinton: 27% positive, 38% negative.
McCain: 12% positive, 48% negative
Giuliani: 28% positive, 37% negative
JDNE

Net numbers

Obama +31
Giuliani -9
Clinton -11
McCain -36
