    As time goes on, and the more the moron obama has to speak on his own the more his numbers will go down.

    It is amazing how every ignorant person assumes everyone else is a racist. People were saying the same thing about Obama vs. Clinton. He beat a Clinton, you know something no GOP candidate has done in a long time!

    Obama isn't winning the election. White people in the South and Midwest are not voting for him the same way they didn't vote for Joe Lieberman in 2000.

    Obama has to at least win Ohio (McCain leads him by 6 or 7 points there) or Florida (which is becoming a solidly republican state) as well as continue to carry Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Minnesota. That's not happening.

    When Obama and Hillary became the two frontrunners for the dem nod I knew the election was over. For me it's now about waiting for 2012 hopefully the Dems can get a more electable candidate who's from a traditionally red state like Wesley Clark, Evan Bayh or Mark Warner. Ofcourse, another four years of neoconservatism, war, recession, exploding inflation and gas prices and the Dems could probably nominate Beetlejuice in 2012 and he'd beat MCain.

    You have to understand the context in which Obama beat Hillary - it was the democratic primaries. National election is a much different game. Obama has to appeal to voters who still think the 1964 Civil Rights Act was a mistake, that the New Deal was socialist and that Global Warming is a myth.

    What made Bill Clinton such a great candidate for the dems was the fact that he could appeal to both liberals living in Greenwich Village as well as good ol' boys in southern trailer parks. He was charismatic, had a southern accent, and he was from Arkansas.

    Dems need to get a similar type candidate if they ever want to win the White House again.

    According to the attached Rasmussen Poll:
    Obama 45
    McCain 42

    [url]http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/election_20082/2008_presidential_election/daily_presidential_tracking_poll[/url]

    Hardly a commanding lead. Considering energy prices & overall economy the party in power should be losing by double digits by this point, instead it's a slight lead for Obama.

    This race is far from over, and arguably with McCain this close I say he's
    got a very good shot of winning.

    [QUOTE=bitonti;2641950]when did you have that moment about Bush?[/QUOTE]

    I thought we were talking about BO...?

    His being too far left, and people worrying about terrorism, will be his undoing.

    Say what you will about Bush, but he got terrorists concentrated in Iraq and NOT here.

    [QUOTE=jets5ever;2641202]Saw this, totally agree with it. Cannot fathom a McCain win. Think its going to be a slaughter.[/QUOTE]


    IF McCain panders to the conservative base and gets their vote out, I can't see Obama winning too many of the states Bush won. If that happens, I can;t see it being a big win for Obama.

    I think most of America thinks very differently than NY, Calif, Mass, etc. Obama is far from many of the values that states hold to. If the bvase stays home, yes, Obama in a blow out. batten down the hatches for 4 more years of Carter.

    As bad as Bush has been, and I don;t like much of what he has done, people will be saying that at least Bush did not screw up as badly as Obama did.

    I didn't know Obama has already served as the US President.

    Easy. Hillary had the highest unelectables of any candidate. Even then, Obama stumbled to the finish line.
