Israel First to Test Barack Obama on Hamas Conflict

Obama Defers to Bush, for Now, on Gaza Crisis - NYTimes.com

WASHINGTON — When President-elect Barack Obama went to Israel in July — to the very town, in fact, whose repeated shelling culminated in this weekend’s new fighting in Gaza — he all but endorsed the punishing Israeli attacks now unfolding.

“If somebody was sending rockets into my house, where my two daughters sleep at night, I’m going to do everything in my power to stop that,” he told reporters in Sderot, a small city on the edge of Gaza that has been hit repeatedly by rocket fire. “And I would expect Israelis to do the same thing.”

President elected Barack Obama.

Where is Barack Obama ? I know he is on vacation in Honolulu and trying to keep a low profile but he remains involved in transition plans and has received intelligence briefings. So Barack Obama knows what is going on and is watching for afar. In four days he has said nothing.

Now when I commented on this in a post, I got the liberal reply.


Obama is not yet President -- George Bush is the current President It is not President elect Obama's time to make Presidential statements.Use your brain. BTW, George B. is on vacation as well, and not doing much else.

But Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama put out a statement condemning Russia for their escalation of the conflict with Georgia. And he was not even elected President yet.

Remember what Joe Biden said?

"It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like
they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We're about to elect a
brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of
America. Remember I said it standing here if you don't remember
anything else I said. Watch, we're gonna have an international crisis,
a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy."

Joe was right, it looks like Israel will be the first to test President-elect Barack Obama. Remember the world is looking and see a bare chested man walking from the gym.Celebrity website Celebuzz claimed Obama was "the hottest president ever" while the Sun said "His buff chest and toned tum belie his 47 years and show he's got more in common with George Clooney than George Bush."

Please Barack, you don't have to act like neither of the Georges but you must act. Americans and the World wants to know how you are going to handle this.

Will Hillary be Obama's Scape Goat on Iraq?

Clinton Moves to Widen Role of State Dept. - NYTimes.com

WASHINGTON — Even before taking office, Hillary Rodham Clinton
is seeking to build a more powerful State Department, with a bigger
budget, high-profile special envoys to trouble spots and an expanded
role in dealing with global economic issues at a time of crisis.

Mrs. Clinton is recruiting Jacob J. Lew, the budget director under President Bill Clinton, as one of two deputies, according to people close to the Obama transition team. Mr. Lew’s focus, they said, will be on increasing the share of financing that goes to the diplomatic corps. He and James B. Steinberg, a deputy national security adviser in the Clinton administration, are to be Mrs. Clinton’s chief lieutenants.

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Before we start let's finds out the duties and responsibilities of the Secretary of State. The Secretary of State, is the President's principal foreign policy advisor, though other officials or individuals may have more influence on their foreign policy decisions. The Department advances U.S. objectives and interests in the world through its primary role in developing and implementing the President's foreign policy.

The Department also supports the foreign affairs activities of other U.S. Government entities including the United States Department of Commerce and the U.S. Agency for International Development. It also provides an array of important services to U.S. citizens and to foreigners seeking to visit or immigrate to the U.S.

Why do you think Barack Obama selected Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. So she will be so busy that she can't run against him in 2012? Or will Obama use Hillary as a scape goat for not ending the Iraq occupation?

As he moves closer to the White House, President-elect Obama is making clearer than ever that tens of thousands of American troops will be left behind in Iraq, even if he can make good on his campaign promise to pull all combat forces out within 16 months.

That status-of-forces agreement remains subject to change, by mutual agreement, and Army planners acknowledge privately that they are examining projections that could see the number of Americans hovering between 30,000 and 50,000 — and some say as high as 70,000 — for a substantial time even beyond 2011. At the end of the Bush Administration there will be a 140,000 troop level.

Now the far left will be upset. Here is a blog entry in Democrats.com unity. "President-Elect Barack Obama pledged to end the occupation of Iraq during his campaign and this should be his number one priority. The occupation of Iraq has cost the US economy hundreds of billions of dollars, lasted longer then World War II, and displaced millions of Iraqis from their homes, while destabilizing the entire region."

So now it looks like Barack will put the whole Iraq war in Hillary lap.
At the beginning of her campaign Hillary refused to commit to draw U.S. troops out of Iraq.Then she jump on the Obama band wagon.

In her speech, she unequivocally proclaimed, "The most important part of my plan is the first step: to end our military engagement in Iraq's civil war and immediately start bringing our troops home as quickly and carefully as possible.

Now President-elect Obama can say, "You see not only I but also Hillary Clinton wanted to with draw all of our troops out of Iraq. But Hillary and I have found out that President George Bush did such a lousy job in Iraq that we will have to stay there longer.'

Just wait and see.

Barack Obama Clears Himself and His Staff of Wrong Doing with Blagojevich.

ABC News: Rahm Emanuel Discussed Obama Shortlist With Blagojevich Staff

Incoming White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel had a series of
conversations with Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich and his top aide about possible replacements for President-elect Barack Obama in the Senate -- but he never discussed any possible deals with them, according to a report prepared by the Obama transition office  and released today.

While clearing Emanuel and all other Obama aides of wrongdoing, the report also discloses  that Obama, Emanuel and the president-elect's friend and adviser Valerie Jarrett were interviewed by the U.S. Attorney's office last week, though it gives no details of those conversations.

Emanuel and Blagojevich very Good Friends.

Emanuel never discussed any possible deals and the Obama report, prepared by Barack Obama, clearing Emanuel and all other Obama aides of wrongdoing. So Obama cleared all his friends. Is this like George W Bush clearing his Vice President and all of his cabinet of any wrong doing in the starting of the Iraq war?

George Stephanopoulos reported that Emanuel is a close ally of Obama's and a veteran of the Clinton White House. Obama likes the fact that Emanuel knows policy, knows politics, knows Capitol Hill. He has told associates that he knows that Emanuel will "have his back." So did Barack Obama send Emanuel to talk to Blagojevich?

What does it mean to be the White House Chief of Staff? The duties of the White House Chief of Staff vary greatly from one administration to another. However, the chief of staff has been responsible for overseeing the actions of the White House staff, managing the president's schedule, and deciding who is allowed to meet with the president. Because of these duties, the Chief of Staff has at various times been dubbed "The Gatekeeper" and "The Co-President". So Rahm Emanuel is the gatekeeper between Obama and Blagojevich and the Co-President?

Mr Obama said that he had made no personal contact with Mr Blagojevich’s office and that he was gathering details of any contact between the transition staff and the governor’s administration. No personal contact, of course not, Blagojevich had to go through the gatekeeper. Obama gathering details? No, he already had them.

We want the change, that Barack Obama promised when he was running for President. We want to know why Obama, Emanuel and the president-elect's friend and adviser Valerie Jarrett were interviewed by the U.S. Attorney's office last week. I guess to talk about the weather.

Looks like the new President is starting off on the wrong foot.

Cheney, is Bin Laden Alive? Barack Obama knows!

Cheney not sure if Bin Laden still alive - Yahoo! News

WASHINGTON (AFP) – US Vice President Dick Cheney said in an interview Sunday that he did not know if the Al-Qaeda terror leader Osama bin Laden was still alive.
Asked if the elusive bin Laden was alive, Cheney said: "I don't know and I'm guessing he is."
"We've had certain pieces of evidence become available from time to time, there'll be a photograph released or something that allows the intelligence community to judge that he is still alive," Cheney told Fox News on Sunday.

Osama bin Laden Wanted Dead or Alive.

Let's first talk about what President elect Barack Obama wants to do. President-elect Barack Obama intends to renew the U.S. commitment to the hunt for Osama bin Laden, a priority the president-elect believes President Bush has played down after years of failing to apprehend the al-Qaeda leader. Critical of Bush during the campaign for what he said was the president's extreme focus on Iraq at the expense of Afghanistan, Obama also intends to move ahead with a planned deployment of thousands of additional U.S. troops there.

Barack Obama said that President Bush has down played, after eight years, his failing to apprehend Bin Laden. And that he can do a better job despite a massive manhunt and a 25-million-dollar bounty on his head. So Obama wants to send more US troops. US troop numbers in Afghanistan could double by next summer to 60,000.

The incoming Obama administration plans to explore a more regional strategy to the war in Afghanistan -- including possible talks with Iran -- and looks favorably on the nascent dialogue between the Afghan government and "reconcilable" elements of the Taliban, according to Obama national security advisers.

And Barack Obama is doing this when he has yet to fully examine available military and intelligence resources and how they are currently being used, and have not yet plotted his diplomatic approach to Pakistan, where U.S. intelligence officials believe bin Laden is hiding.

So this is one promise that looks like Barack Obama will keep. Obama said during the campaign that his administration would explore talks with countries such as Iran and Syria, rejecting bedrock Bush policy. Now that Barack Obama is my President, I hope his head is not in the sand.

Mr Obama no Personal Contact with Mr Blagojevich Just Sent Rahm Emanuel

Emanuel, Blagojevich Aides Discussed Senate Seat - WSJ.com

Barack Obama had begun thinking about his Senate successor even before the presidential election, and dispatched Rahm Emanuel to contact aides of Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich to begin talking up Mr. Obama's preferred candidates, associates of Mr. Emanuel said this weekend.

Mr. Emanuel, a congressman from Chicago, had been approached about being Mr. Obama's White House chief of staff the week before the election, though he hadn't yet officially decided to take the post. Nonetheless, the issue of Mr. Obama's Senate replacement was sensitive enough that senior Obama aides wanted to keep the matter within the circle of Illinois political figures, according to people familiar with campaign deliberations at the time.

Gov. Rod Blagojevich just a big boy.

Now we know that Barack Obama had Rahm Emanuel, his White House chief of staff to contact aides of Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich. Now why would Mr Emanuel contact the aids of Gov Blagojevich and not the Governor himself? Emanuel knows the Governor personally.

It,the idea of reimporting drugs from Canada, was the sort of populist issue at which Mr. Emanuel excels, and he urged Mr. Blagojevich to take it on. The two wrote joint letters in 2004 and held news conferences on the subject, garnering attention for
both of them. Do you think Mr Emanuel spoke to Gov. Blagojevich on this one?

So we are to believe that Gov. Blagojevich instructed his aides to ask Mr. Emanuel to ask Barack Obama for a kick back for nominating one of Obama's preferred candidates? And Mr. Emanuel said no without asking Barack Obama. Do you believe this? Among those in Mr. Obama's inner circle, Mr. Emanuel had one of the closest relationships to Mr. Blagojevich but just spoke to his aides.

Mr Obama said that he had made no personal contact with Mr Blagojevich’s office and that he was gathering details of any contact between the transition staff and the governor’s administration. If you send someone on your behalf to represent you is in not a personal contact on your behalf? I guess it all depends what is,is.

Now Barack Obama said that he was gathering details of any contact between the transition staff and the governor’s administration. Is he personally gathering this information or is an aide doing it? So if an aide is gathering this information, he is doing it. But when Mr Emanuel is doing it on Obama behalf, Barack not doing it.

There is more and more to come out. President-elect Obama you pick poor friends.

Eric H Holder Right Person for New Attorney General?

Holder Seen as Obama Choice for Justice Post - NYTimes.com

President-elect Barack Obama’s transition team has signaled to Eric H. Holder Jr., a senior official in the Justice Department in the Clinton administration, that he will be chosen as attorney general, but no final decision has been made, people involved in the process said Tuesday.

His last days at the Justice Department in 2001 were marred by his peripheral involvement in Mr. Clinton’s pardon of the fugitive financier Marc Rich, as Republicans sharply criticized Mr. Holder as failing to oppose the pardon and allowing the White House to bypass the normal pardon review process at the Justice Department.

Mr. Holder told the Clinton White House at the time that he was “neutral, leaning toward favorable” on the idea of pardoning Mr. Rich, whose former wife, Denise Rich, had contributed heavily to Mr. Clinton’s presidential library.

Eric H. Holder Jr. New Attorney General?

Who is Eric H. Holder? As a young attorney in Justice's fledgling Public Integrity Section, Mr. Holder helped bring cases against Philadelphia judges. President Ronald Reagan appointed him to the D.C. Superior Court. There, Mr. Holder gained a reputation as a thoughtful and even-handed jurist. He favored neither the government nor criminal defendants; nor did he reflexively favor the little guy against business, or vice versa. So far very good!

As the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia in the early 1990s, Mr. Holder presided over the high-profile corruption prosecution of former Democratic powerhouse Dan Rostenkowski of Illinois. Rostenkowski, as chairman of the congressional Ways and Means Committee, was in a position to help the Clinton administration to implement its agenda for health care reform. Nonetheless, Holder persisted with the investigation and even widened its scope. He told the Washington Post that matters of criminal prosecution must be handled without regard to partisan politics. "The idea that a Democratic U.S. attorney is going to do something different than a Republican U.S. attorney is pretty close to ridiculous," Holder observed. This even sounds better!

But in the last days of the Clinton administration, Eric H. Holder stood by and said nothing when President Clinton's pardon Dan Rostenkowski, the former chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee who pleaded guilty to mail fraud charges in 1996, This was a misuse of the presidential pardoning power in order to pay back a loyal political lieutenant. Where was Mr. Holder?

The largest blemish on Mr Holder's record is the last minute pardon, by President Bill Clinton, of fugitive and Democratic contributor Marc Rich. Between November 2000 and January 2001 Jack Quinn, Rich's lawyer and former White House Counsel from 1995-96, had been contacting Holder, testing the waters for the political viability of a presidential pardon. After presenting his case to Holder in a November phone call and a last minute January 17th letter, Quinn arranged a phone call between the White House and Holder, asking the Deputy Attorney General to share his opinion on the Rich pardon. Even though Holder gave a "neutral, leaning towards favorable" opinion of the pardon to Clinton, Holder had played a significant role in facilitating the Rich pardon, first by recommending the well-connected Jack Quinn to Marc Rich legal representatives, and by eventually delivering a favorable opinion of the twilight pardon to the President from a position of authority.

Now here are the things that bother me about Eric H. Holder Jr. Holder represented Chiquita. In 2004, Holder helped negotiate an agreement with the Justice Department for Chiquita Brands International in a case that involved Chiquita's payment of "protection money" to the United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia, a group on the U.S. government's list of terrorist organizations.

In 2008, Holder joined the Reno-led amicus brief, which urged the Supreme Court to uphold Washington, D.C.'s handgun ban and said the Department of Justice from Franklin Roosevelt through Bill Clinton had always believed that the Second Amendment does not protect the rights of individuals to own guns for personal use.

In April 2004, Holder voiced his opposition to the Bush Administration's implementation of the Patriot Act, saying it is "bad ultimately for law enforcement and will cost us the support of the American people."

Eric H. Holder Jr. believes that the Second Amendment does not protect the rights of individuals to own guns for personal use. Not the right Person for Attorney General.

NASA'S GISS Dr. Hansen Global Warming Blunder

The world has never seen such freezing heat - Telegraph

A surreal scientific blunder last week raised a huge question mark
about the temperature records that underpin the worldwide alarm over global warming. On Monday, Nasa's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), which is run by Al Gore's chief scientific ally, Dr James Hansen, and is one of four bodies responsible for monitoring global temperatures, announced that last month was the hottest October on record.

This was startling. Across the world there were reports of unseasonal snow and plummeting temperatures last month, from the American Great Plains to China, and from the Alps to New Zealand. China's official news agency reported that Tibet had suffered its "worst snowstorm ever". In the US, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration registered 63 local snowfall records and 115 lowest-ever temperatures for the month, and ranked it as only the 70th-warmest October in 114 years.

Global Warming,"Freezing Heat"

Former Vice President Al Gore said that Americans must abandon electricity generated by fossil fuels within a decade and rely on the sun, the winds and other environmentally friendly sources of power, or risk losing their national security as well as their creature comforts.

Lose our creature comforts? Al Gore just bought a houseboat bout 100 feet long. To get an idea about how large this boat is, let's compare it to your house. An average three bedroom two bath home is about 1500 square feet. This boat on the main deck is about 2000 square feet. If you would count the lower deck and the top deck, it's over 4000 square feet.

How did all this global warming warming crap get started? One scientist more responsible than any other for the alarm over global warming it is Dr Hansen, who set the whole scare in train back in 1988 with his testimony to a US Senate committee chaired by Al Gore. Dr. Hanson even supported Greenpeace when they criminally damaging a coal-fired power station in Kent, on the grounds that the harm done to the planet by a new power station would far outweigh any damage they had done themselves. So do you think he is bias?

Now the United Nations wants the United States to reduce our carbon footprint to remedy a problem which may actually not exist, is a question which should give us all pause for thought.

Pelosi, Reid take Mortgage Money give some to the Auto Industry

Pelosi, Reid Press for TARP Aid for Auto Industry - WSJ.com

WASHINGTON -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid sent a letter to Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson urging him to assist the Big Three auto makers by considering broadening the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program to help the troubled industry.

The two top Democratic leaders in Congress are likely to make the request in a letter to the White House, which could be forwarded as soon as Saturday afternoon, said individuals familiar with the matter. President-elect Barack Obama is generally supportive of the appeal, but at the moment is moving on his own track to assist the industry, these individuals said.

Helping out the auto industry

Here we go, Reid and Pelosi wants to use the $700 billion, which is marked for the banking industry and give part of it to the auto industry. I thought we needed this money to improve credit flows and calm turmoil in financial markets incited by the downturn in the housing economy. Congress has already authorized a $25 billion loan package meant to help the industry retool to meet higher fuel economy standards. And already the Democrats want to take money from one source and give it to another. Share the wealth.

On October 27th John McCain said “Let’s get the first $25 billion to them first, see how that works before we say we’re going to give you some more.” The Democrats don't even know how much money the auto makers need, just throw money at the problem to solve it. Or are they taking the auto makers at their word of how much money they need?

How did the Bush administration and Congressional leaders, Reid and Peolsi, come up with the $700 billion to buy distressed mortgages? Answer; The recovery package cannot go higher than $700 billion without additional legislation. As for that figure, it lies between the optimistic estimate of $500 billion and the pessimistic guess of $1 trillion about the cost of fixing the financial mess.

So we don't know how much it will cost us, the tax payers, to fix the mortgage crises but we can take $25 billion of it and give it to the three US auto makers. What about the other auto makers here in the United States? Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Hyundai all have plants here in the States and employ American workers. States give them tax cuts so they can build a factory in their state. Are we going to help them? Or do they need help?

How is the President-elect going to help the auto industry? Obama said the auto industry would benefit from his $150-billion, 10-year plan to develop alternative energy sources, including fuel cells to power vehicles. So does the auto industry needs the $50 billion that Reid and Pelosi wants to give them or can they wait for the $150 billion that Barack Obama will invest in alternative fuels? Will the cars built with the $50 billion run on the $150 billion alternative fuels?

When it comes to our money, the Democrats know how to spend it. One thing we have learned from the Democrats here is, to fix a problem, just throw money at it. Money is the magic pill that cures all. Let's just do what John McCain said. First loan them the $25 billion and lets see what happens. Then make a decision later on how they used the first money. Sounds smart?

Barack Obama Can't Change Aunt, Brothers Life

Found in a rundown Boston estate: Barack Obama’s aunt Zeituni Onyango - Times Online

Barack Obama has lived one version of the American Dream that has taken him to the steps of the White House. But a few miles from where the Democratic presidential candidate studied at Harvard, his Kenyan aunt and uncle, immigrants living in modest circumstances in Boston, have a contrasting American story.

Zeituni Onyango, the aunt so affectionately described in Mr Obama’s best-selling memoir Dreams from My Father, lives in a disabled-access flat on a rundown public housing estate in South Boston.

Public Housing

Listen to the words of Barack Obama to the world which he gave in Berlin, Germany.
"I know my country has not perfected itself. At times, we've struggled to keep the promise of liberty and equality for all of our people. We've made our share of mistakes, and there are times when our actions around the world have not lived up to our best intentions."

Now I played with the words just a little bit, here goes.
"I know I have not perfected myself. At times, I struggle to keep the promise of help and brotherly love for all my relatives. I made my share of mistakes, and there are times when my action around my family have not lived up to my best intentions."

Now how did Barack Obama's aunt get to South Boston and how long has she been there? George Onyango said that his aunt had left for the US about eight years ago but sent him e-mails. “She left to find work and I suppose she thought her life would be better there,” he said. “She was kind and caring.”

So Barack Obama aunt came here in 2000, looking for work and a better life, five years before Obama bought a 6400 square foot house on a 70 foot by 150 foot lot in Kenwood, Illinois for 1.65 million U.S. dollars. She was only looking for a better life here in the United Stares but Barack couldn't bring change in her life. I guess he is not his Aunt's keeper, with no room in the inn.

Now the Italian edition of Vanity Fair said that it had found George Hussein Onyango Obama living in a hut in a ramshackle town of Huruma on the outskirts of Nairobi. This is Senator Barack Obama's long lost brother. Funny. his aunt in South Boston knew where he was living "...here on less than a dollar a month." I wonder if his aunt was sending the $12 dollars.

Barack Obama, if you can't take care of your family, how are you going to take care of us. If you can't make a change in your families lives, how are you going to make change in our lives? If your not interested in the health of your relatives, how will you that care of our health? If you want to know a man, walk in his shoe and see what he does.

Barack Obama Ad Lies About John McCain

FACT CHECK: Obama charges against McCain debatable | Newsweek Politics: Campaign 2008 | Newsweek.com

Democrat Barack Obama's "closing argument" speech Monday included a sweeping accusation against GOP rival John McCain: "Senator McCain still has not been able to tell the American people a single major thing he'd do differently from George Bush when it comes to the economy."

But the charge is debatable — McCain has several ideas that are different than Bush's policy, which he touched on as recently as a Sunday interview on NBC's "Meet the Press."

Barack Obama can't do anything wrong.

Here we go. First Barack Obama lies and tells the press last November that he pledges to accept public financing and to work with the Republican nominee to ensure that they both operated within those limits. After finding out that he could raise more money on his own, Obama goes back on his word and takes public financing. Now he is using this money to tell half truths and lies.

Well how much has Barack Obama raised? He has raised well over $600 million since the start of his campaign, close to what George Bush and John Kerry raised combined in 2004. The courageous among Obama's own supporters concede this decision was
really made for one reason, simply because it was to Obama's financial advantage.

Now using this money, you will find Obama telling everyone that McCain is just like Bush, when he is not. On a lot of major issues McCain is different but if your not a media hog, you will not know. Barack Obama knows this and lies to try and get elected.

But one thing is true, if elected Barack will be working with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid and become as John McCain calls them “a dangerous threesome” With Pelosi and Reid running congress, congress' job approval rating has dropped, making the current reading the lowest congressional job approval rating in the 34-year Gallup Poll history of asking the question. The previous low was 18%, last reached in May. Now the rating is down to 9%.

Just like Barack Obama, Harry Reid is blaming President George Bush. He said, “Any time, I repeat, any time you have a president that is down so, so far in poll numbers, it drags down a city council member. It drags down any elected official,
including us, and we recognize that.”
Hay Harry, in order for someone to “drag you down” as you have described the President doing, they must first be below you. With the President’s approval rating hovering around the 30% mark, it is very unlikely he is having much of an affect on the do nothing Congress.

So if Barack Obama is elected, with his false ads, the three will be the "Three stooges."

ACORN signs up Mickey Mouse to Vote in Florida

Vote drives defended, despite fake names - St. Petersburg Times

Mickey Mouse tried to register to vote in Florida this summer.

Nationwide, ACORN is a favorite GOP target for allegations of voter registration fraud this year.

This year, 39 members of the House of Representatives have asked Attorney General Michael Mukasey to investigate ACORN.

Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now

Here is the problem. ACORN pays those who work for them and collect voter registration cards $8 dollars an hour. Their goal or quota is 20 sign ups a day, That's 100 a week or 400 a month that one person is encouraged to sign up. A recipe for fraud.

ACORN said it terminates canvassers who forge applications. But their are many problems with unreadable handwriting, missing information, signatures that didn't match those on file, altered dates of birth or Social Security numbers, applications for people already registered to vote and names that appeared repeatedly, often with different addresses.

So what happens with all of these applications? In most states, ACORN must turn in every form that is filled out. "We must turn in every voter registration card by Florida law, even Mickey Mouse.

ACORN's political action committee has endorsed Obama, but the group says its voter registration efforts are nonpartisan. Do you believe this? Madeline Talbott, lead organizer of the feisty ACORN community organization, a group that's a thorn in the side of most elected officials, "Barack has proven himself among our members. He is committed to organizing, to building a democracy. Above all else, he is a good listener, and we accept and respect him as a kindred spirit, a fellow organizer."Obama continues his organizing work largely through classes for future leaders identified by ACORN and the Centers for New Horizons on the south side.

What does Barack Obama teach these future leaders? "The right wing, the Christian right, has done a good job of building these organizations of accountability, much better than the left or progressive forces have. But it's always easier to organize around intolerance, narrow-mindedness, and false nostalgia. And they also have hijacked the higher moral ground with this language of family values and moral responsibility.

Obama should rein in ACORN's efforts in order to fight voter fraud. But Obama told reporters on Tuesday that ACORN was not advising his campaign on voter registration. Obama will do nothing and said, "This is another one of those distractions that get stirred up during the campaign," You decide!

Fla. Congressman Tim Mahoney Bribes Former Lover

A Florida (House) Bombshell - The Fix

The report from ABC News that Florida Democratic Rep. Tim Mahoney paid a former mistress more than $100,000 to settle a lawsuit she was planning to bring against him badly imperils a seat that was already high on Republicans' target list.

"I just learned today about the serious allegations concerning Congressman Tim Mahoney," said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. "These charges must be immediately and thoroughly investigated by the House Ethics Committee."

"According to ABC News, Tim Mahoney apparently included our company in a secret legal agreement without the knowledge of our firm," said Bill Fletcher. "Our firm did not agree to any legal settlement."

Rep Tim Mahoney

Tim Mahoney is in a secret legal agreement with Patricia Allen. A secret legal agreement? NO, bribe money or hush money. A Mahoney spokesman said the first-term representative never used campaign funds to pay off Allen.I guess it was okay to pay off Allen as long as it was not campaign money.

The scandal also poses major problems for House Democratic leadership, which is hoping to ride a wave of economic discontent to expand its majority. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said. "These charges must be immediately and thoroughly investigated by the House Ethics Committee." I wonder if this will be in the news for the next three weeks? Will the news media hound this story like the Mark Foley emails to under age pages?

Now how did Ms Allen get involved with the Congressman? Mahoney first met Allen at a campaign stop and later arranged for her to work as a volunteer on the campaign, according to the report. She also appeared in a Mahoney campaign television commercial, criticizing his opponent, Mark Foley. Friends of Allen told ABC she sought to break off the affair when she learned Mahoney was allegedly involved in other extra-marital relationships at the same time.

Well Mark Foley resigned in September after being confronted with lurid computer messages he sent to male teenage pages and Tim Mahoney took his place. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) took the House floor last night to demand an investigation into the Foley matter. But Boehner headed her off, calling on the House to refer the matter to the ethics committee, which the House promptly voted unanimously to do.

Then House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi of California proposed to the House that its ethics committee investigate and make a preliminary report in 10 days. She demanded to know who knew of the messages, whether Foley had other contacts with pages and when the Republican leadership was notified of Foley's conduct.

I think the Republicans should demand the same with Tim Mahoney. First we should have a preliminary report in 10 days. We should know when the Democrats knew about the cover up bribe. And Congressman Tim Mahoney should resign just like Mark Foley.

Barack Obama, Community Organizer, Unorganized?

Reporter's Notebook: Seeing How The Other Half Lives - From The Road

If so, I would love to have someone from Obama's campaign explain why the entire press corps, the Secret Service, and the local police idled for two hours in a Miami hotel parking lot recently because there was nothing to do and nowhere to go. It was not an isolated case.

The McCain folks are more helpful and generally friendly. The schedules are printed on actual books you can hold in your hand, read, and then plan accordingly. The press aides are more knowledgeable and useful to us in the news media. The events are designed with a better eye, and for the simple needs of the press corps. When he is available, John McCain is friendly and loquacious. Obama holds news conferences, but seldom banters with the reporters who've been following him for thousands of miles around the country. Go figure.

Maybe none of this means much. Maybe a front-running campaign like Obama's that is focused solely on victory doesn't have the time to do the mundane things like print up schedules or attend to the needs of reporters.

Barack Obama's Campaign Plane

Is Barack Obama. the community organizer, not organized? One of his primary qualification for the office he seeks is his experience as a “community organizer," but it doesn't look like there is much organization in his campaign. In fact it looks like Barack is unorganized. Where did Barack Obama learn his organization skills?

Obama’s community organizing experience began in 1985 in Chicago. He chose to work for ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). A review of ACORN’s Peoples Platform reveals much about Obama’s ideology. The ACORN platform is remarkably similar to the Socialist Party USA platform.

Now vice president candidate Sarah Palin said, "I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a community organizer, except that you have actual responsibilities," If a small town mayor was unorganized and ran his town, like Obama is running his campaign, he would be in trouble.

But now Barack Obama wants to run the United States and one of his qualifications, which he and the news media is pushing is his organization skills. This is why Sarah Palin made fun of Obama. She was saying she has just as much experiance as him. But she is organized.

Now I'm sure CBS news reporter, Dean Reynolds, is in hot water for saying the following, "The McCain campaign plane is better than Obama's, which is cramped, uncomfortable and smells terrible most of the time. Somehow the McCain folks manage to keep their charter clean, even where the press is seated."

Personally I think this means a lot. It will tell us how Barack Obama will run this country. How can you tell if it's a wolf in sheep's clothing if you keep on looking at the sheep? Just look at the tracks he has left behind.

Barack & Michelle Obama Worked with Bill Ayers

Close-up on juvenile justice

William Ayers, author of A Kind and Just Parent: The Children of Juvenile Court (Beacon Press, 1997), says "We should call a child a child. A 13-year-old who picks up a gun isn't suddenly an adult. We have to ask other questions: How did he get the gun? Where did it come from?"

Ayers will be joined by Sen. Barack Obama, Senior Lecturer in the Law School, who is working to combat legislation that would put more juvenile offenders into the adult system

Michelle Obama, Associate Dean of Student Services and Director of the University Community Service Center, hopes bringing issues like this to campus will open a dialogue between members of the University community and the broader community.

Bill Ayers Stomping on the American Flag.

Before we start this post the picture above is of Bill Ayers stomping on the American flag. This is not a picture of the 60's or 70's it is when he was 55 years old in August 2001. This is a guy who just lives in Barack and Michelle Obama's neighborhood, half a block away..

So what did Sarah Palin say about Senator Barack Obama? "Our opponent, though, is someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect, imperfect enough that he's palling around with terrorists who would target their own country," Palin told supporters at a $1,000-a-plate fund raiser in Englewood. "Americans need to know this."

All told, Ayers and Weatherman were responsible for 30 bombings aimed at destroying the defense and security infrastructures of the U.S. "I don't regret setting bombs, said Ayers in 2001, "I feel we didn't do enough."

In 1970, Ayers' then-girlfriend Diana Oughton, along with Weatherman members Terry Robbins and Ted Gold, were killed when a bomb they were constructing exploded unexpectedly. That bomb had been intended for detonation at a dance that was to be attended by army soldiers at Fort Dix, New Jersey. Hundreds of lives could have been lost had the plan been successfully executed. Ayers attested that the bomb would have done serious damage, "tearing through windows and walls and, yes, people too."

If Bill Ayers was so bad how did he get out of this? In 1980 the two surrendered, but all charges against them were dropped due to an "improper surveillance" technicality. "Guilty as sin, free as a bird, America is a great country." How does bill Ayers feel about the United States? "What a country," Ayers said in 2001. "It makes me want to puke."

So does Barack Obama have a relationship with Bill Ayers? Barack says no but he has issued a petition to the Department of Justice requesting a criminal investigation of the "American Issues Project," the organization through which the ads are financed. A criminal investigation? This is how Obama is trying to silence his opposition.

Barack Obama makes bad choices when it come to his friends. He might make bad choices when it comes to the United States.

Sarah Palin, Pit Bull with Lipstick, Attacks Barack Obama

GOP Assails Obama For "Negative" Views, Democrats Accuse McCain Backers Of Trying To Assassinate Obama's Character - CBS News

(CBS) On the heels of Gov. Sarah Palin's statement yesterday that Sen. Barack Obama does not see America as "a force for good in the world," Rep. Heather Wilson, R-N.M., accused the Democratic presidential nominee of "talking down America."

Referring to his visit to Germany where he said of America, "We've made our share of mistakes," Wilson said, "We've always had this history of saying, well, you know, 'Politics end at the water's edge.' And it didn't for Barack Obama. He has been critical not only of the president but of American policy and hence has kind of a negative view of America in the world."

Senator Barack Obama in Germany

Well what did Barack Obama say about our country. This is from his Germany speech. I know my country has not perfected itself. At times, we’ve struggled to keep the promise of liberty and equality for all of our people. We’ve made our share of mistakes, and there are times when our actions around the world have not lived up to our best intentions.

First Obama said that his country has not perfected itself. Our country is not the land, federal buildings or laws. Our country are it's people. This is why when President Ronald Reagan addressed the United Nations he said. My people have sent me here today to speak for them as citizens of the world, which they truly are, for we Americans are drawn from every nationality represented in this chamber today. We understand that men and women of every race and creed can and must work together for peace. We stand ready to take the next steps down the road of cooperation through verifiable arms reduction.

President Reagan saw this country made up of the people of the world from every race and creed. A country ready to help the world in peace.

Second he said, "
we’ve struggled to keep the promise of liberty and equality for all of our people." If we are struggling does this mean we are not doing it? I thought affirmative action was suppose to make this right. Does Barack Obama believe this is not working? Motivation for affirmative action is a desire to redress negative effects of actual or perceived, past or current discrimination that is regarded as unfair by relevant legislative bodies.

Third, Obama said,"We’ve made our share of mistakes." Barack please list the mistake that America has done around the world? Please tell me when our best intentions were wrong. Tell the American people and the world, what you don't like about America.

Maybe Barack Obama believes like Rev. Wright, his pastor for 20 years.

“The government lied about inventing the HIV virus as a means of genocide against people of color. The government lied.”

“We bombed Hiroshima. We bombed Nagasaki. And we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon and we never batted an eye.”

“We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because of stuff we have done overseas is now brought back into our own backyard. America's chickens coming home to roost.”

“The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes
three-strike laws and wants them to sing God Bless America. No! No No! God **** America … for killing innocent people. God **** America for threatening citizens as less than humans. God **** America as long as she tries to act like she is God and supreme.”

“Barack knows what it means living in a country and a culture that is
controlled by rich, white people. Hillary would never know that.”

“Hillary ain’t never been called a n***8r. Hillary has never had a people defined as a non-person.”

“Hillary is married to Bill, and Bill has been good to us. No he ain’t!
Bill did us, just like he did Monica Lewinsky. He was riding dirty.”

Barack Obama describes longtime pastor Jeremiah Wright Jr. as "like an uncle" and a spiritual mentor. And Barack didn't know what Rev Jeremiah Wright said in his church? Didn't know what his spiritual mentor believed? Is Rev Wright the crazy uncle or Obama the lying Senator?

Ohio Democrat Secretary Of State, New Voters Register and Vote Same Day

My Way News - Voting for president begins in pivotal Ohio

In the state that may again determine the presidency, voters started
casting ballots Tuesday as Barack Obama struggles to thwart a John
McCain victory in Ohio four years after it tipped the election to
President Bush.

On Monday, the state Supreme Court and two federal judges upheld the
ruling by Democratic Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner that allows
new voters to register and cast an absentee ballot on the same day from
Tuesday through Oct. 6. Republicans argued that Ohio law requires
voters to be registered for 30 days before they cast an absentee ballot.

The Ohio GOP asked the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati on
Tuesday either to stop same-day voting or require elections official to
separate those ballots so the registrations can be verified. But Brunner already has instructed election officials to segregate those ballots and verify the registrations before counting them. A three-judge panel of the federal appeals court denied the request later in the day.

The Right to Vote.

The Ohio Supreme Court and a federal judge on Monday upheld a week long period in which new voters can register and cast an absentee ballot on the same day in Ohio. Than why can't someone register and vote on November 4th in Ohio, on election day? Why is there a law in Ohio that a person must register 35 days before an election in order to vote in that election?

Democrat Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner was following the law when she ruled there is a six-day window in which voters can  register and vote at the same time. She might have been following the letter of the law but she was not following the spirit of the law when a person must wait 35 days in order to vote.

I think the Republicans should take advantage of this. First we must contact Rush Limbaugh and wake up the Operation Chaos people in Ohio. They should take their family members and neighbors go register and vote early for McCain/Palin. Second Rush should call for all the Hillary voters to vote now for McCain/Palin so Hillary can run against them in 2012. Next we need to get all the youth ministers  involved in this election. First tell them what Barack Obama believe about abortion and how he voted. Register the youth and let them vote. Guess who they will vote for? Last, get all the members of the VFW and DAV lodges. Have them vote early and start a grass root movement in bringing people to the polls.

Republican leaders in Ohio should use this oppertunity to get out the vote. Conservative talk show host in Ohio show help to get out the conservative vote. If we all work together we can use this Democrat fast one for the benifit of the McCain/Palin ticket.

Nancy Pelosi Fails to get the Vote, Republicans Revolt.

The Beltway Crash - WSJ.com

The 228-205 defeat reflects badly on all concerned, starting with the
Democrats who run the House. The majority party is responsible for
assembling a majority vote, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi failed in that
fundamental task.

Her highly partisan speech on the floor -- blaming "right-wing ideology of anything goes, no supervision, no discipline, no regulation" for the financial distress -- is no excuse for Republicans to vote no. But it is indicative of the way she has governed for the past two years -- like Tom DeLay without the charm. The cynics are saying Ms. Pelosi deliberately tanked the bill by giving 95 Democrats a pass, knowing failure would hurt John McCain, and given her track record we can see why people would believe it.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Well what did Pelosi say? She bashed President Bush and blamed the Republicans for the mess we are in today. Which President Bush and the Republicans have been warning the congress that something must be done for the last 6 years. And Nancy blames Wall street rather those who are over these committees, like Frank and Dodd. But I really think what upset the Republicans was her last words.

I know that we, Democrats, will be able to live up to our side of the bargain. I hope the Republicans will, too. And before long we will have a new Congress, a new president of the United States, and we will be able to take our country in a new direction.

So what was Ms Nancy saying? Here it is in a nut shell. Before long there will be a new Democrat Congress and we will not need you Republicans, just like I have been trying to ignore you. We will have Mr. Barack Obama as our president and we, the Democrats, will be able to take this country in the direction that we want. You Republicans will be history.

The cynics are saying Ms. Pelosi deliberately tanked the bill by
giving 95 Democrats a pass, because they are running for
re-election in tight districts, knowing failure would hurt John
McCain and help Barack Obama. Given her track record we can see why people would believe it.

Because of the bailout and the economy, people are in a panic and Obama is ahead in the latest polls. But this can change next week, it all depends on the economy. So you will see Nancy Pelosi bash President Bush and blame the Republicans. You will see the News Media play the roll on how bad it might be and behind the scene back Barack Obama.

But it will not work and here is why. The Bradley effect.
The term Bradley effect, less commonly called the Wilder effect, refers to a frequently observed discrepancy between voter opinion polls and election outcomes in American political campaigns when a white candidate and a non-white candidate run against each other. Named for Tom Bradley, an African-American who lost the 1982 California governor's race despite being ahead in voter polls, the Bradley effect refers to a tendency on the part of voters -- black as well as white -- to tell pollsters that they are undecided or likely to vote for a Black candidate, when, on election day, they vote for his/her white opponent.

The Country is conservative. That is why in the past 40 years we have had Republican presidents. Except for Carter and Clinton who ran as conservative Democrats. Barack Obama is the most liberal Senator in Congress and with little experience, compared to Senator Al Gore or Senator John Kerry. And they lost. Remember, not the polls but the people will tell us who will be our next president.

Black Caucus afraid of Sarah Palin, Gun Toting & Moose Stripping.

Political Radar: Florida Congressman: Palin 'Don't Care Too Much What They Do With Jews and Blacks'

"If Sarah Palin isn’t enough of a reason for you to get over whatever your problem is with Barack Obama, then you damn well had better pay attention," said Hastings. "Anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks. So, you just think this through."

Hastings, who is a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, made his comments in Washington, D.C., while participating in a panel discussion sponsored by the National Jewish Democratic Council.

Bull Moose in the setting sun.

What did Hastings mean by this statement? Hastings spokesman David Goldenberg told ABC News that he was trying to argue that Palin is an "extremely conservative woman who is out of touch with mainstream America."

When people panic, they will always say something stupid. Rep. Alcee Hastings did apologize. He said,"I regret the comments I made last Tuesday that were not smart and certainly not relevant to hunters or sportsmen," Took him a week but thats OK.

When you think of hunting, you think guns and men. But the firearms industry directed its first major ads at women in the 1880's The early ads featured females alone in the forest. What can you say about a women and a rifle? First they are not afraid to pick it up and look through it's site. Not afraid to point it at a moose, squeeze the trigger and shoot a big Bambi in the heart.

Maybe this is what Alice Hastings was talking about, a woman who can control her emotions and shoot Bambi. Then take out her knife and gut poor Bambi. Mr Hastings must be like a lot of men and believe that women are too emotional to be Vice President or President. I'm glad that God made women emotional, but they can control that emotion.

Not only are there women in the arm service that use a rifle, they will shoot you and Bambi if they had to. Plus there are a lot of women in our medical hospitals that would stick you with a needle or shove an IV in your arm. And if you turn over Mr Hastings they will stick a tube up your ass. Gutting? They will clean up your vomit and clean your ass when you shit on yourself. Most things a man would not do.

Emotional yes! But a mother or grand mother will do what every it takes to protect their nest. My pastor's wife always carried a gun in her purse. It was next to the lipstick. She never used it and went on to see her maker. In 1990 12 million women own guns. Surprised? I was.

Mr Hastings and the Black Caucus should not be afraid of strong women, they are all around us. Sarah Palin will make a good Vice President.

Does Barack Obama lead McCain in the Polls?

Economic Fears Give Obama Clear Lead Over McCain in Poll - washingtonpost.com

Turmoil in the financial industry and growing pessimism about the economy have altered the shape of the presidential race, giving Democratic nominee Barack Obama the first clear lead of the general-election campaign over Republican John McCain, according to the latest Washington Post-ABC News national poll.

As a point of comparison, neither of the last two Democratic nominees -- John F. Kerry in 2004 or Al Gore in 2000 -- recorded support above 50 percent in a pre-election poll by the Post and ABC News.

Weekly Polls

According to the latest Washington Post-ABC News national poll, Barack Obama is leading John McCain by a large margin. I don't believe it. As we get closer the the election, some people who want Obama to win, will play with the polls. So let us take a very close look at this poll together.

First this is a randon telephone poll, so the survey, conducted Friday through Monday, included telephone interviews with a random national sample of 1,082 adults, including 916 registered voters. 916 of those called where registered voters and 166 where not registered at all. What good is their opinion? They will not vote Nov 4th, they can't.

905. Are you Registered to vote at your present address or not?

Yes 78 percent No 21 percent 1 percent no opinion

Can you believe that 21 percent in this poll can't vote? Another question that was asked "What party are you leaning toward Democrat or Republican?

8/22/08 Democrat 53 percent Republican 37 percent
8/22/08RV Democrat 52 percent Republican 41 percent

The poll over sample the African American vote, for a total of 201 black respondents. The RV is the revised poll when the black count was lowered to the population ratio. In the first sample the Democrats out numbered the Republicans by 16 points, In the revised the Democrats out numbered the Republicans by 11 points.

Now let us look at the ideology of those polled. Would you say your views on most political matters are liberal, moderate, or conservative?

8/22/08 Liberal 23 percent, Moderate 42 percent, Conservative 33 percent.

The poor conservative, Republicans is only 33 percent.

Now last party identification. Gererally speaking, do you usually think of yourself as.

8/22/08 Democrat 36 percent Republican 26 percent Independent 33 percent. Other 5 percent.

In this poll Democrats way out numbered Republicans. Now does the Washington Post have an agenda? Just take a look at the other pollsters who took polls that weekend. You will see that the Washington Post is try to sway public opinion and get their guy, Barack Obama elected.

Barack Obama & Bill Ayers, Together 5 years

Obama and Ayers Pushed Radicalism On Schools - WSJ.com

Despite having authored two autobiographies, Barack Obama has never written about his most important executive experience. From 1995 to 1999, he led an education foundation called the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC), and remained on the board until 2001. The group poured more than $100 million into the hands of community organizers and radical education activists.

The CAC was the brainchild of Bill Ayers, a founder of the Weather Underground in the 1960s. Among other feats, Mr. Ayers and his cohorts bombed the Pentagon, and he has never expressed regret for his actions. Barack Obama's first run for the Illinois State Senate was launched at a 1995 gathering at Mr. Ayers's home.

The Men who are behind Barack Obama

Here are the words of Barack Obama. Mr. Ayers is just "a guy who lives in my neighborhood," and "not somebody who I exchange ideas with on a regular basis." But the Daley archives show that Mr. Obama and Mr. Ayers worked as a team to advance the CAC agenda. So Barack Obama doesn't want us to know about his friend Mr. Ayers. He doesn't mention him in his two autobiographies.

Why they spent 6 years together? Because they believe the same thing and have a common believe to accomplish those goals. The Chicago Annenburg Challenge was not only the brainchild of Bill Ayers, it was his baby. He needed someone who he could trust. Do you think if he didn't know Barack Obama he would have trusted him with $49.2 million? So a Board of Directors initially recruited by the Collaborative, which was chaired from 1995 to 2000 by Barack Obama, at the time a practicing attorney. And this was not important for Obama to mention in his books.

Both Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, hosted a small campaign meeting for Obama at their home in 1995.  Hillary Rodham Clinton in February 2008,brought this up and during a debate between Clinton and Obama in April 2008. Now  the Republicans have brought this up and here is Obama answer. Mr. Ayers who engaged in detestable acts 40 years ago, when I was 8 years old, somehow reflects on me and my values doesn't make much sense.”

Oh yes it does Barry. The reason the both of you hung together for five years is because you both have the same values. The reason you will denounce Rev. Wright and not Mr Ayers is because you both have the same values. If you know Barack Obama friends. then you will know who Obama is. Rememder friends of a feather, flock together.

McCain Gaining ground in Michigan over Obama, 11 Percent Undecided.

CNN Political Ticker: All politics, all the time Blog Archive - CNN POLL OF POLLS: Obama has advantage in key state « - Blogs from CNN.com

A new CNN poll of polls in Michigan, compiled Saturday, suggests Senator Barack Obama has a five point lead over Senator John McCain, 47 percent to 42 percent, with 11 percent of voters undecided.

Seventeen electoral votes are up for grabs in Michigan.

It seems the current financial crisis from Wall Street to Main Street will be a major factor in Michigan.

Michigan Sunset

In the last four presidential election Michigan voted for a Democratic candidate. The last time President Bush lost the state to John Kerry by just three points. Now a month and a half before the election Baack Obama is up by five points. But you must look at in this poll is the undecideds which is at 11 percent. This is a high percentage being so close to the election.

First polls are fun to watch but it doesn't give you a clear picture of what is happening. For example let's look at the UPDATE: The release of new ARG numbers this afternoon has tightened up the Michigan average by one point. Obama now leads McCain in the Michigan poll of polls by 4 points (47 to 43 percent). This morning's
Michigan poll of polls showed Obama leading McCain by 5 points (47 to 42 percent). In lest than six hours the polls change by one percent in McCain's favor. Obama percentage stayed at 47 percent but McCain went up to 43 percent.

On August 22, 2008 a new poll out today from the Detroit Free Press shows Obama ahead over McCain in Michigan, 46-39 with 12 percent of voters undecided. Now in one month, Barack Obama went from 46 to 47 percent. John McCain in one month, went from 39 to 43 percent. So if you want to play with the numbers, McCain is doing better in Michigan than Obama with 11 percent still undecided.

With just six weeks until Election day let's look at the battle ground states. Florida, John McCain 47 to 46, seven percent undecided. Barack Obama has spent $8 million on ads and John McCain just started last weeks with ads. Ohio, John McCain 47 to 46, seven percent undecided. Ohio voters say McCain is more qualified to be president and would likely use good judgment. Missouri, John McCain 49 to 45, six percent undecided. McCain is supported by 92% of Missouri Republicans and enjoys a 16-percentage-point lead among unaffiliated voters.

As you can see we can all play with the poll numbers. Right the cards are in John McCain favor in the swing states.
