Will Meeks-gate, Baby-gate and Bowl-gate have a serious impact on the PA primary?
He was able to navigate away from Pastorgate and I think he will do the same with these new scandals.

4. Exactly.
You should have SEEN Karl Rove salivating on Hannity and Colmes. He is already lining up the ads about Obama's exagerations.

21. No, we don't know what all her baggage is. We certainly don't--unless
she's been in a state of suspended animation for 7 years. And Sniper-gate was a NEW invention for her.

27. She's been a Senator these last years
and I am pretty sure that there won't be any 527's playing God Damn America 24/7 with her picture on it. I am also sure that they won't have her spouse saying he hasn't been proud of America in his adult life. And I am quite sure the repuke slime machine and their lying 527 ads won't be linking Hillary to Hamas, Khalidi, Farrakhan, the New Black Panther Party or others of that ilk. But, of course you believe that Obama is made of Teflon. Good luck.

33. Um, Michelle Obama has clarified that she is very proud of America, just
not always of its politics--just because the RW perpetuates the "Obamas are unpatriotic" myth, doesn't mean it's true. And none of that Wright/racial shit stuck, because in the end, Obama didn't say those things. Hillary, however, is lying repeatedly. And again, the RW is certainly sitting on its ammo and keeping its powder dry on things like Dubai and Giustra and other hinky stuff the Clintons are involved in, as well as Bill's personal life.

37. Well, so far so good. It's not the manufactured "scandal" du jour, it's how you respond
to it and whether people believe it.

19. Most people would just figure he isn't a good bowler, but at least he's game enough to try
and can laugh at himself--same as I can't bowl worth a damn, but still find it fun to try. Wow, what I thought was cute and funny on Sunday is being turned into something nefarious today because Joe Scarborough and Hillbots are playing psy-ops with DUers' heads. Pathetic that anyone would fall for it.

24. Well, as long a Obamatons keep using the phrase Hillbot and linking Clinton to Scarborough
you'll keep seeing crazy crap thrown right back in your direction. (You being plural for Obama supporters, not you in particular. Who could be angry at someone named wiederdoggie? :)

42. Actually, I don't mind "Obamabot"--supporters of any candidate are called "bots"
on most sites that I've noticed. It's pretty generic and mild, and a hell of a lot less typing than "Hillary supporters". And yes, I am so charming it's tragic. :-)

5. So Obama's statements about pro-choice and sex-ed are
a "gate" Obama going bowling is a "gate"? Well if you see these things as scandals then yeah he'll get out from under them. Meeks is not going to be any worse than Wright. You'd think they'd learn the definition of insanity. Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

13. Quite honestly... the poor bowling was the deciding factor for me
I cannot possibly vote for a good bowler.

Underdog bowlers are ALWAYS my first choice!

only distract from the seriousness of it all!

16. Stick around, read a few dozen more threads
You'll catch up to how the Hillary folks are grasping at straws to make Obama look horrific.

Bad bowler notwithstanding.

14. I hope Americans have noticed our deficit, our war and our economy
I don't care whether my president is an accomplished bowler and I agree that as a parent of a 12 year old girl I wouldn't rejoice that she was pregnant or had an STD.

He apparently hates babies according to some Hillary supporters.

45. He doesn't want his daughters to become pregnant in Jr high
He considers a baby to a 12 year old as punishment rather than a blessing and consequently he believes in condems and sex education. However, it sounds like many people would rejoice to have their jr high daughters pregnant!

43. He was talking about abortion/birth control/sex-ed
and made a comment like: "I don't want my daughters punished with pregnancy or an STD". Hillary's supporters spent all day yesterday spinning into Obama hates babies, and how their children are all "blessings" and how dare Obama say otherwise. It was pathetic really, they all knew what he meant...

Hillary's dirty tricks are all going to backfire
and lose her more delegate, voters and donors.
