Anger Is Crowd's Overarching Emotion at McCain Rally as open Fascism grows and Obama's lead widens I fear the Bradley effect enabling another stolen..
First My words! Obama's new lead is now 11 points and the right is gettng desperate This is getting down right scary as Obama gets more popular and the Fascists are showing their angry hateful color! At a recent rally There were shouts of "Nobama" and "Socialist" at the mention of the Democratic presidential nominee. There were boos, middle fingers turned up and thumbs turned down as a media caravan moved through the crowd Thursday for a midday town hall gathering featuring John McCain and Sarah Palin.

"It is absolutely vital that you take it to Obama, that you hit him where it hurts, there's a soft spot," said James T. Harris, a local radio talk show host, who urged the Republican nominee to use Barack Obama's controversial former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright , and others against him. "We have the good Reverend Wright. We have [the Rev. Michael L.] Pfleger. We have all of these shady characters that have surrounded him," Harris bellowed. "We have corruption here in Wisconsin and voting across the nation. I am begging you, sir. I am begging you. Take it to him." The crowd of thousands roared its approval. I have to ask, what about the Religious Muslim haters that support McGoon? It is time to stop playing childish games and concentrate on our America if it really matters and it does not to McCain and his supporters!
In recent days, a campaign that embraced the mantra of "Country First" but is flagging in the polls and scrambling for a way to close the gap as the nation's economy slides into shambles has found itself at the center of an outpouring of raw emotion rare in a presidential race. "There's 26 days and people are looking at the very serious possibility that there's a chance that Obama might get in, and they don't like that," said Ian Eltrich, 28, as he filed out of the crowded sports complex. "I'm mad! I'm really mad!" another man said, taking the microphone and refusing to surrender it easily, even when McCain tried to agree with him. "I'm not done. Lemme finish, please," he said after a standing ovation. "When you have Obama, [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi and the rest of the hooligans up there going to run the country, we have to have our head examined. "It's time that you two represent the rest of us. So go get 'em." The crowd burst into loud chants of "U-S-A! U-S-A!" We have to have our heads examined? What the hell about electing a President purposely destroying our America and existing world order? What about electing McCain the Fascist thug or Palin the modern day Eva Braun? that ought to tell you what the real goal is here.
Standing at the center of the crowd, McCain and Palin drew on the crowd's energy as they repeatedly trained their fire on Obama. "Senator Obama has a clear radical, far-left, pro-abortion record," McCain said after being asked about the issue. The answer prompted a shower of boos from the crowd members. They booed again when he mentioned William Ayers who bombed U.S. facilities to protest the Vietnam War as part of the domestic terrorist group the Weather Underground. They booed again at the mention of Rep. Barney Frank, a liberal from Massachusetts. Obama was friggen 8 years old at the time! What the hell happened to not talking about the past but the future? Oh that only applies to Obama and Biden!
McCain spends most of his time at his rallies and town hall meetings lambasting his rival, often calling him a "co-conspirator" with congressional Democrats in what he argues are the seeds of the financial crisis at mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. "Will you assure us," one woman asked, "that, as president, you will take immediate action to investigate, prosecute and name the names of the people actually responsible?" "I will," McCain answered. Wasn't one of them McCain the deregulator?
* The crowds that show up for his rallies these days appear to have little appetite for the talk of bipartisan compromise that had been at the heart of his message around the Republican National Convention. During a rally outside a small airport in Mosinee, Wis., on Thursday, McCain said that "it's time we come together, Democrats and Republicans to work together. That's my record. I'll reach across the aisle." The crowd stood silent. They do not want to come together they want us eradicated. This is really scary for a united America! As the crowd filed out, several said they agreed with the man who said he was mad. Others went further. "No, I'm not mad, I'm pissed," said Joan Schmitz, who owns a plumbing company here. She said she was frustrated with polls showing Obama surging, McCain's performance in a Tuesday night debate, Obama himself, the media, and the liberal group ACORN, which she said was registering voters fraudulently. Noting Obama's connections with Ayers, she said that "if it was a Republican, it would be nonstop," referring to what she said was the media ignoring the controversial acquaintance. "I can't stand to look at him, I don't trust him. I don't like the circle of friends he keeps, I don't like his policies," Schmitz said of Obama. "I'm pissed off by it. I'm beyond mad. How is he climbing up in the polls?"
now As A new national poll suggests Barack Obama is widening his lead over John McCain in the race for the White House. The CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll out Monday afternoon suggests that the country's financial crisis, record low approval ratings for President Bush and a drop in the public's perception of McCain's running mate could be contributing to Obama's gains. Fifty-three percent of likely voters questioned in the poll say they are backing Obama for president, with 45 percent supporting McCain. That 8-point lead is double the 4-point lead Obama held in the last CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll, taken in mid-September. Monday evening's CNN national Poll of Polls -- incorporating our new CNN survey, as well as new tracking numbers from Gallup and Hotline taken October 3-5 -- shows Obama leading McCain by 6 points -- at 49 to 43 percent. President Bush may be part of the reason why Obama's making gains. Only 24 percent of those polled approve of Bush's job as president, an all-time low for a CNN survey.
* "Bush has now tied Richard Nixon's worst rating ever, taken in a poll just before he resigned in 1974, and is only 2 points higher than the worst presidential approval rating in history, Harry Truman's 22 percent mark in February 1952," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.And that's bad news for McCain because the poll suggests a growing number of Americans believe the Republican presidential nominee would have the same policies as the current Republican president. Fifty-six percent say McCain's policies would be the same as Bush, up from 50 percent a month ago. Obama widens the lead
Seeing the anger from the right over Obama I am really starting to wonder about the Polls showing Obama widening his lead though I firmly believe he is the absolute only hope America and the world have at this point of averting this Fascist new order agenda of the right! Remember the Bradley effect? The polls are showing Obama widening his lead but How much can we trust these polls? Old-timers point to several celebrated gaffes which discredited, for a while the entire concept of polling. At this point, the question of race becomes unavoidable. Even if all the potential African-American voters are able and willing to vote for him, Obama will need to win back whites that have been drifting away from the Democratic Party increasingly since 1968. Only 41 percent of whites voted for John Kerry in 2004, while 44 percent supported Al Gore in 2000.
The Democrats must persuade working class white voters to vote for their economic interests instead of their cultural/social fears. This should be easy: impending recession; rising unemployment; financial market implosion; static real income for all the Bush years. The argument is easy to make. But will Obama be able to use these arguments to overcome the racial aggravations that many white working class Americans feel – justly or unjustly – that they have lost out on opportunity and advancement because of affirmative action for African-Americans? That is one important question. Another is whether these voters can eschew the “Bradley Effect”, which is, in short, to vote on racial lines but never admit it to pollsters. How much should we be subtracting from Obama’s poll numbers to know where we are, not just in this election, but as a society? Deflating Obama, remember the Bradley effect?
You know I am very concerned about the right stealing this election and seeing the open fascism being displayed I am very concerned. I am concerned the Bradley effect is one more cover while the right steals this election too somehow! I am not looking forward to this election. I will be on edge until January 20th when Bush can no longer declare martial order if they can not steal this election for McCain!
