Was Pennsylvania a win for Hillary or an overall win for McCain?

4-26-2008

The ultimate winner in the Pennsylvania Democrat Primary wasn’t Hillary Clinton, if anything it had to be John McCain. I hate to sound like brainy smurf, but yet again I was right. I said Barack Obama can’t win the major populous states, and sure enough the double-digit defeat of Obama just proved it. It’s hard to give myself a self-high five. So Hillary hangs on to fight another day, and the Democrat Party inches one day closer to a full blown civil war. I have my binoculars and popcorn ready. I have a feeling Howard Dean might be curled up under his desk in the fetal position sucking his thumb muttering, “What are we going to do”? For the life of me, I can’t understand why the media and other Democrats wanted Hillary to drop out of the race? If anyone should drop out should be Obama. The Democrat Party and the media pumped the illusion of Barack Obama up to be bigger then life. He was supposed to be the second coming of John F Kennedy, yet the great over hyped speech giver can’t win a major state? What is wrong with that picture? Hillary Clinton has more negatives working against her then George Bush, yet she has managed to slaughter Obama in the states Democrats would have to win in November to win the presidency. This is what I’m trying to understand. Most Democrats say they are sick and tired of the Clintons, yet how come Hillary has broad appeal among Democrats voters in different groups? The only group Hillary isn’t doing well in is among blacks and young college kids. What I’m about to say is something no political pundit has yet to pick up on. Nobody has noticed how weak the black vote is in the battleground states, like Ohio, Pennsylvania, California, and New York, Texas etc. The overwhelming majority of blacks have been casting ballots for Obama, yet in the states that count the most on the Electoral College map Hillary has beaten Obama by double digits in those states. Al Sharpton said on the Bill O’Rieily show there will be protests in the streets if Obama is denied the nomination. Well, I guess Sharpton and company might want to get some comfortable marching shoes ready. The reality is that there aren’t enough delegates left for Hillary or Obama to win in order to secure the nomination. So that means that the “Super Delegates” are going to have to decide who gets the nomination. Either way a candidate and their supporters AREN’T GOING TO BE HAPPY. These are the options facing the Democrat Party. If the Super Delegates pick Obama, they will pick a candidate that really only has support among blacks and former Ron Paul youth voters. If the Super Delegates pick Hillary, then there will be riots in the streets among blacks, “No Justice No Peace”etc. I wonder can I still secure the Pay Per View rights to broadcast the Democrat National Convention Battle Royal? This should be fun.

If Obama wins the nomination, the Democrats are going to have a bad beatdown in the election for Presidency to level of Lincoln beating McClellan in 1864. Many of those Democrats who voted for Hiliary say they will vote for McCain if Obama wins. That spells bad news for Obama and the Democratic Party if he wins.

And once again, his own pastor is showing what a friend he is. NOT!

If he is going to try to convince people he is taken out of context, he needs to avoid the hard interviews like those from O'reilly, rather than go for softball ones like the one he just had, where he can make statements he got taken out of context, not explain what the context is, and expect us to take his word for it (funny though that I read the whole ocntext, and the context to me is WORST than the soundbite).

And worse, not throw Obama under the bus with saying Obama is being a politician for disagreeing with him.

But too little, too late. lol

Hiliary will still present a challenge for McCain but without many black votes, I don't see Democrats winning the election either.

Not when many conservatives, as much as they don't like McCain, don't want either candidate in office where they can push the most hardcore pro-abortion agenda, especially partial birth abortion.

Obama's problems now goes in so many different areas. His snide remarks in San Fran. HIs associations not only with Wright but many other assorted dubious individuals. And his church's ties to both Hamas and NOI.

I meant he (Wright) needs to stop avoiding hard interviews.

The Democrats are between IRaq and a hard place this election. The Obama campaign is stumbling to the finish line like a team which made the playoffs early and then stumbled through the rest of the regular season.

With neither candidate able to win enough delegates to secure the nomination, the super-delegates will decide this thing. If they select Hillary Clinton, the conventional wisdom is that a lot of the new, young voters and black voters simply stay home in November, and John McCain wins. If they go fo Mr Obama, the black voters show up, but Mr Obama's campaign is so flawed that he loses to John McCain as well.

But the kicker that few mention is: most of the super-delegates are elected officials themselves, and Democrats depend on the black vote. nTo give the nomination to Mrs Clinton is to endanger their own re-election campaigns -- and they aren't going to do that!

I will be watching that convention for sure. It will be a lot more interesting than the Republican one unless the Ron Paul people decided to upset the apple cart. That has already begun.

It was also interesting to hear that Wright threw Obama under the bus. So much for the kinder, gentler party. This is way worse than anything I have seen on the Republican side. AND THEY HAVE BEEN BAD.

thuyen tran"Many of those Democrats who voted for Hiliary say they will vote for McCain if Obama wins. That spells bad news for Obama and the Democratic Party if he wins"

It gets better then that it seems thuyen tran. After listening to Jerimah Wright today, I can definetely see Obama losing by double digits to Mc Cain in November. Wright has taken on the role of some sort of crazy Uncle to Obama.

thuyen tran"And once again, his own pastor is showing what a friend he is. NOT!"

Its pretty ironic when you think about it thuyen tran. First Obama threw his grandmother under the bus to try and save his so called respectable image, now Jerimah Wright has thrown Obama under the Bush to try and validate is insane positions. I guess turn about is truly fair play.

thuyen tran"If he is going to try to convince people he is taken out of context, he needs to avoid the hard interviews like those from O'reilly, rather than go for softball ones like the one he just had, where he can make statements he got taken out of context, not explain what the context is, and expect us to take his word for it (funny though that I read the whole ocntext, and the context to me is WORST than the soundbite)."

In Wright's warped mind, he believes the "corporate media" is out to get him. Looks like the bad pastor is suffering from a paronia complex. I wish I knew why people can't just fess up to when they are wrong instead of trying to blame others. Jerimah Wright's own words were on the CD's his church was selling. I pretty weak that this vile piece of human filth has bastardized biblical text to try to present it in a way that tries to justify his warped way of thinking.

dana"But the kicker that few mention is: most of the super-delegates are elected officials themselves, and Democrats depend on the black vote. nTo give the nomination to Mrs Clinton is to endanger their own re-election campaigns -- and they aren't going to do that!"

Dana, I know you heard today that Howard Dean said that he is asking for Hillary or Obama to drop out after the Indiana/North Carolina Primarys. Howard Dean does not want the Super Delegates to declare the winner at all cost. If he and other top Democrats truly belive Hillary is going to drop out for the sake of the Democrat Party, he has another thing comming. I will say though, I want Obama to get the nomination. This will be a slam dunk if there ever was one.

pamela"I will be watching that convention for sure. It will be a lot more interesting than the Republican one unless the Ron Paul people decided to upset the apple cart. That has already begun"

I'm not even going to watch the Republican convention to be honest pamela. When I listen to McCain I want to puke my gutts out. I got an email from the "Republicans for Black Empowerment" today. The email was a press statement attacking the North Carolina Republican Party for its campaign ad against Obama using footage of Jerimah Wright. Frankly, I 10000000% support the NCGOP and the ad. If certain Republicans want to kiss McCain's rear end, then thats on them. I'm a conservative before anything else. McCan has no loyality to conservatives, so why do they expect us to have loyality to him? I see John McCain as nothing more then a tool to stop Obama or Hillary, thats it.

Tyrone,

I am laughing at how often Wright and his defenders play card he served in the military.

Let's see here- if anyone else has served in the military and does not have benefit of member of church being a senator and now running for President, how would that person be seen if he consults with the leader of Libya or distributes Hama antisemitic garbage, conspiracy theory? What happen if that person is still in the Army? I would imagine court-martial, or maybe charged with treason.

If anything, Wright being in the armed forces in the past actually cast his actiivites dealing with America's enemies in even worse light. And his words of blaming America first for every conflict or issue including the issues with Japan has got to the most naive understanding of foreign policy and wars I have ever seen. IN his world, no nation can attack another nation after being attacked if we are to follow his logic in how the US dealt with Japan doing WW2. Or him painting rogue terrorist nations like Iraq, Iran, and the Sudan as innocent countries of our aggression. lol

I am not one to be naive to believe the US is blameless in each and every case.

But Islamic nations have a terrible track, not because of the US or Israel, but because of their extreme ideologies of hate towards non-Islamics, especially Jews and Christians. Period.

Here is the rationale of a Wright defender:

I will give Wright defenders this though...they are passionate (I do respect that in a persevere way).

Good thing this is a country where they are free to express their thoughts no matter the complaints Wright is denied his free speech and getting lynched. LOL

Tyrone,

I am very much leaning towards voting for Chuck Baldwin now. I don't agree with all the paleo-con views of the Constitution Party but they are far better right now IMO then Republicans. And on key civil rights issues like abortion, I trust them not to abandon evangelicals once they get elected (if they ever do).

I want Mr Obama to win the nomination as well, not only because I believe he'd be easier for Mr McCain to beat, but if a Democrat does win in November, I'd prefer Mr Obama to Mrs Clinton.

As for the Rev Dr Jeremiah Wright: is he trying to lose this contest for Barack Obama? I can just hear Mr Obama saying, in private, of course, "Will you please just STFU?!"

I was thinking about not watching the Republican convention as well. I have not seen the ad in question. Maybe I need to check it out. From what I heard it just lists the people that Obama has said he was friends with. If that is the case there is nothing wrong with that kind of an ad. You are known by the company you keep. There are too many zanies around him for me to feel comfortable that he has good judgment in selecting people in his cabinet as advisors.

For a hot minute I seriously considered not voting in the general election for the first time in my life. As a black person that thought makes me sick. The church I attend is sincerely praying that whoever gets in there will not pass laws that will persecute the church. This is my main concern with both Democratic candidates. However with McCain's tendencies to author stuff that is not constitutional I am concerned that on an angry whim he will do something just as bad or worse since he hates conservatives at this point.

We are in trouble no matter who is in there unless there is a change of heart. That can happen.

I'll watch both conventions, although the democratic one will be more entertaining. I do think that McCain has a good shot against either one of the democratic choices. He'll get the senior vote and probably most of the independents as well. And to answer the question in your post...

yes and yes

It keeps her in the race and it will make McCain's job easier in the summer and fall.
