Hey Obama supporters: If the only way you can win is by slamming Hillary, that's really sad.
Instead of constantly harping on how bad Hillary is for the nation,
how about writing some intelligent posts about what makes Obama so
great for the nation. Seems like all I ever hear is "Hillary this"
or "Hillary that" or "that evil Hillary" or things like that. You
remind me of schoolyard bullies.

You are NEVER going to convince me to vote for Obama by slamming
Hillary. You MIGHT be more persuasive if you started PROMOTING
all the wonderful aspects you claim to know about Obama. If every
post here was changed from an attack on Hillary to a PROMOTION of
Obama, -- I would definitely be more inclined to listen and think about
voting for your candidate. But, if the only thing you can do is
attack, attack, attack -- you are utterly a MAJOR turnoff and you
are convincing NO ONE to vote for your candidate.

However, if the best you can do is throw dirt at Hillary -- I see you
as nothing but a schoolyard bully and incapable of intelligently winning me over
to your side. The techniques you use are very similar to those I
remember snotty kids in high school using. The techniques are only
good for making people angry through the misuse of emotion.

When people are so overwhelmingly critical about ANY candidate
it makes me suspect THEIR candidate all the more, thinking they
really don't have enough GOOD things to say about their candidate
other than platitudes and pretty adjectives.

2. The Obama Supporters Here All Know Why We Support Him - It's Been Well Documented
That said, the dirt thrown at HRC is more than deserved.

4. Only way we can win?
What?

Are yo implying that somehow Obama's campaign relies on us? If so, understand, he doesn't need us. He has the insurmountable delegate lead.

6. Try looking in a mirror.
Obama, unlike Hillary, actually does have a positive message.

It's Hillary and her followers that are resorting to smears, lies, innuendo and dirty tricks to poison the well here.

12. Ferchrissakes, so the Clintonian antic of endorsing our opposition is OK with you?
Hillary Clinton crossed the line a long time ago when she tried to make an issue of Barack Obama's kindergarten paper. That was unprecedented in American politics. Political experts will not be able to find another example to compare such nonsense to. Nowhere!

Recently, Hillary Clinton has endorsed John FUCKING McCain over Barack Obama based on absolute LIES.

Imagine.

A Democratic candidate publically coming out out several times to endorse the political opposition's nominee over a fellow Democrat, who actually has more legislative experience than she does.

I'm sure you just want the lies to flow out of Hillary Clinton's mouth like a bad case of diarrhea and we're just supposed to sit back and say nothing. That would so nice for you. Right?

She is a political TRAITOR. She knows it is a mathematical impossibility that she can win, so she'd rather be a Republican instead since she can't get her little way. She'd rather crash and burn the Democratic Party than do the right thing and drop the hell out.

Don't worry. She wants to play dirty. Do you hear that creaking noise? That's the sound of the door opening with hundreds of skeletons in the Clinton's closet about to come out. She is toast. Get used to it.

18. Why is there not a call for Howard Wolfson to resign after comparing Obama to Ken Starr!
Edited on Sat Mar-08-08 07:28 AM by flpoljunkie
This is the very lowest of gutter politics--more than throwing the "kitchen sink" at Obama. It is absurd, outrageous--yet Andrea Mitchell repeats it for the Today Show, Morning Joe and I expect the Nightly News with Brian Williams.

Hillary Clinton wants to "win in the the worst way"--and that seems to be exactly what's she's doing.

21. Yep!!
I think she should just go all the way, register as a Republican and run as McCain's VP.

NeoCON tactics are so easy for her.

13. You're half right...
but if you had any general interest of being above it all, you'd address the overzealous supporters of both candidates.

The Hillary supporters are guilty too.

17. How about when
the candidate and her husband are so overwhelmingly critical, ie, both Bill AND Hill pouring on?

With both Clintons AND McCain pouring on, it's a wonder Obama has done as well as he has.

And, then, Hill endorses the Republican candidate over the Democratic candidate.

How about some specifics on Hillary's 35 years of experience?

And, Hillary will NEVER convince me to vote for her by slamming not only Obama but also slamming his supporters.

20. When Obama supporters do that, Hillary supporters call it cultlike
Read much?

Many posts here from Obama supporters have pointed out his positive aspects and what they like about him.

But inevitably Hillary supporters only response is to berate them as cultlike, or they mock him for claiming to be The Messiah or else a flim flam man.

24. Are you completely unaware of your candidate's campaign strategy?
"I see you as nothing but a schoolyard bully and incapable of intelligently winning me over to your side. The techniques you use are very similar to those I remember snotty kids in high school using. The techniques are only good for making people angry through the misuse of emotion.

This sounds like the Clintons to me.

27. The other way for Obama to win, of course, is by winning the most delegates.
He seems to be doing okay there.

Please don't mistake DUers' attempts to dominate each other for the political campaign itself.

33. At this point there is really NO attempt to get you to change your mind.
Edited on Sat Mar-08-08 02:13 PM by jmg257
You have to make up your own mind - and IF you do that based on a few posts at a political forum, you need to get out more.

Investigate for yourself what is what - don't take "our" word for it.

You will then realize why Obama is the better choice. But IF not, oh well, he will still need your vote in November.

35. Enough with your crocodile tears...the way hilary can
win is take the Democratic Party down with her.

hilary actually voted for the Iraqi War Resolution without reading the 90 NIE report and we knew then she was incapable of caring what happened to real people on the ground in Iraq since it was a stepping stone to her run for the pres in 2008. Well, guess what.
