How many super delagates will base their support on the word of Wolf Blitzer, Keith Olberman, Tweety
Edited on Sat Mar-08-08 06:53 PM by asSEENonTV
Tim Russert, and the rest of the talking heads on TV?

Let SNL, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, Fox, and Limpballs rant on!

Obama will be just fine. He IS a fighter. His team will work to win MS, NC, etc.

His machine is still oiled, fueled, funded, and smart... and WINNING!

GOBAMA!

edit to add WINNING

1. After watching Tweety today, it almost appeared to me that Chris Matthews is...
willing Obama to fail. The media, Olbermann excepted, is afraid of Obama winning our nomination.

2. Yes, the corporations are having a fit.
Clinton is corporation. Obama not.
They cannot handle the will of the people.

3. I predicted this would happen months ago.
They have been lifting him up onto a pedestal and waiting for the precise moment to knock him off. That is why I could not stand when Obama supporters were praising the media for their awesome coverage of his campaign. Since when do we trust the media and think they are so great?? They have been covering Bush's ass for the last 7 1/2 years. Are people so naive that they think the media likes Obama? No way do they want a Democrat in the White House at all. They are going to thrive on displaying the tensions amid the Democratic Party for the next several months so that McCain gets into the White House. Clinton, Obama and all Democrats should be very careful at this time. I wish we could all team up and beat the crap out of McCain and the media. But instead we are divided by our hatred of the respective candidates. Oh well.

5. Yes, you are so right. Nothing scares the "powers that be" more than change.
And we the Democrats age the powers of change. In each primary and caucus, our numbers are up. No matter who is one's candidate, the truth is that, we, the Democrats are tired of being pushed around. We want change and we want it now.

7. But the public isn't playing along, is it?
The MSM and Hillary made the mistake that Obama hasn't--taking it for granted that the voters wouldn't hesitate to see things their way. But the public has alternatives to the MSM, and Hillary, despite her pedigree, was unable to beat Obama early, often, and convincingly. Now the MSM and Hillary are trying to insist that none of that matters, and will turn the runup to PA primary into grotesque soap opera. Let's see who is first to mention that she'll need at least 65% of PA just to pull even.

:(

4. The media will lose its "insider" advantage, if Obama wins....
..that is why they are coddling Hillary. They imply if Obama wins....it ISN'T IMPORTANT because it is a small state....or....if Obama wins ....it ISN'T IMPORTANT because it was a caucus (and Hillary doesn't like caucuses).

They are afraid that if Obama wins in November, on January 20, they will be on the outside looking in..

6. Matthews was just trying to showoff his special knowledge of PA
but he failed. Even the idiot RW talk guy was smarter than he - ward politics works on races where you know none of the names. He seemed like he is still stuck in the 1950s.

It's also weird that they are questioning the changes needed by the guy who is winning. where was there advice for Hillary Clinton. Her image has definitely not improved with these last two weeks. They also neglect that people can see more now. YOUtubes of HRC saying "Shame on you Barack Obama" do not fare well next to calm words of wisdom and hope.

8. Nothing pisses me off more than telling me that my vote doesn't count.
But, as a resident of South Dakota, I don't actually get a vote until June 3rd. Ho hum. But you can rest assured that I will vote! And right now, my vote goes to Obama.
