Obama Wins, Clintonites Still In Denial
Da Nile is not just a river in Egypt. It's also the default state of mind for a Clintonite.
The Associated Press today confirmed something that's been obvious since early March: Barack Obama will be the Democratic nominee for president in 2008.
Meanwhile, the Hillraisers continue to live in an alternate reality:
AP Should be sued for propagating this misinformation. Press have become very pathetic and highly unaccountable. If we have unaccountable politician we can recall or no elect them next time. Is there anything can be done with this Press folks. They are so inclined to Declare OBAMA as president. is this democracy... we are going to behind so many countries for democracy... but he have very very big whole in democracy at home itself. Pathetic it is.
WOULD SOMEONE WITH LEGAL EXPERIENCE CONTACT THE FCC ? THE MEDIA IS "TOTALLY" OUT OF CONTROL.
Misinforming public for the benefit of certain party should be considered a crime!
THEY JUST STATED THAT OBAMA HAS THE NUMBER OF DELEGATES NEEDED. NBC SAYS, NO. I WANT A "FULL" INVESTIGATION OF THE AP, BY THE FCC. THIS IS PURE PROPAGANDA.
Free speech and free press is protected in the Constitution but as long as it is fair and objective. Nothing about the media during the primaries has been fair OR objective.
Clinton says she's open to being Obama's VP
Hillary Clinton as a V.P., an asset or a liability to Barack Obama?
***The Media is trying to pick our MONINEE.
We shouldn’t be surprised at theses actions by the Media.
Hell, CNN as pushed Obama down our throats this whole primary process.
I say to you now, I will not vote for Obama, as he is the worse candidate this Democratic Party has backed ever and I won’t have any of this with this guy.
Hillary should stay in the hunt for the White House as we need her so badly words can’t describe.
Hillary Please, Please stay in this fight, enter the general election as an INDEPENDENT, you’ve got my vote.
Beth Fouhy wrote the story that broke this morning. Am I just paranoid or does it seem like a conspiracy is afoot? To my knowledge AP has yet to retract the story, but even if they have, the damage is done. How dare someone state the race is over on a day that voters have a last a chance to have their say.
Email both the website that carried the story and AP. Tell them you are filing a complaint with the FCC.
Then email all other news organizations to tell them that the story is untrue and you are filing a complaint with the FCC.
Same here. Hillary or McCain. I wouldn't vote for BO for all the tea in China. If you know it's Tuesday, and the Media says it's Tuesday, folks, best check your calender anyway!
Hillary or McCain. No BHO
I really mean it.
I will not vote for Obama...will vote for McCain and you are right neetabug, Obama will not be able to bring them home.
If it isn't Hillary for President...then I will vote for McCain!!!!!
You've got the popular vote.....run as an independent, or whatever.....let's just let BO know that she isn't second to anyone. She will win in the fall regardless of the party. Unless her name is first on the ballot, there will be no way I will vote for BHO. I despise him.
This is why we need to Phone everyone in these states so they know that Hillary hasn't given up! Their VOTES COUNT!!! This is our chance! She is so close They have to CHEAT!! Call MONTANA & S DAKOTA! NOW IS OUR TIME! HURRY!!
On and on it goes. Person after person blaming the media for Clinton's loss, demanding a government crackdown on the Associated Press, claiming that Clinton won the popular vote, and pledging support for either John McCain or an independent bid by Clinton.
It just shows you how poisonous Clinton's candidacy has been. So many of her supporters are now completely irrational. Obama has the support of more than half of the pledged delegates and superdelegates. Even if Clinton gets ALL of the remaining delegates, SHE CAN'T WIN. The press coverage for Obama and Clinton has been about equal, and it's been mostly positive. Clinton has not won the popular vote, unless you assume that Obama got zero votes in Michigan and ignore the votes in Alaska, Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Minnesota, North Dakota, Iowa, Nevada, Nebraska, Washington, Maine, and Wyoming. And Clinton has made it virtually impossible for Obama to pick her as vice president, with her charges that he's not qualified to be president, with her tall tales about sniper fire in Bosnia, and with her appeals to "hard-working Americans, white Americans".
It's just sad that Clinton has led so many people down the garden path. But there's another aspect of this that makes me angry. I'm angry that so many of her supporters say that they'll vote for Obama over McCain.
What they're saying is that they don't care about the war in Iraq, they don't care if we go to war with Iran, they don't are about health care, they don't care about the environment, they don't care about sound economic policy, the don't care about civil liberties, and they don't care about women's rights. The distance between Clinton's and Obama's positions on these issues is slight, and the difference between Clinton's and McCain's positions is vast. So how could any Clinton supporter who really cared about those issues gravitate toward McCain?
Well, they can't. These are people who supported Clinton for another reason. Some may have supported her as part of some sort of personality cult, but I can't think that number is very large. Clinton just isn't very charismatic. So I'm thinking that most are basing their support on identity politics. Either they're willing to put policy matters aside in order to elect a woman, or they're willing to put policy aside to avoid electing a black. Either way, they're a bunch of Ahabs, tossing the whole country overboard as they pursue their narrow minded agenda.
