Obama played the race card first. It began in New Hampshire when Hillary stated a fact about LBJ signing the civil rights bill. Then they trashed Bill for the 'fairytale' comment about him being 'anti-war' (Psst. Don't tell Mike and the Moveon.org idiots that Obama keeps voting for the war!)
Mike was busy chasing Roger Moore (to great effect when Bill was busy DOING good things that actually helped this place a lot--while Mike was PUSHING RALPH NADER---YES MIKE WE STILL BLAME YOU FOR LOSING US THE ELECTION AGAINST BUSH. STAY THE BLANK OUT OF IT THIS TIME).
Obama supporter who thinks it is okay for a candidate or his operation to AVOID any media member, to threaten any journalist or blogger, or that it’s okay to REMOVE a journalist the messiah points out from the press pool (go to the link here and read the account of the McClatchey journalist at the Obama/Daily Show event: http://blogs.suntimes.com/sweet/2008/04/on_the_daily_show_with_jon_ste.html#comments)
needs to really think about what kind of president such a person would be.
Hilary takes the blows. And keeps on going.
No need for a sausage eating photo op—she just deals with things.
Angellight/Julie Mack, Matt, John E—and any other seemingly paid blogger for Obama HQ—just hold tight a minute.
ASK yourself why your potential employer or heart throb or whatever the heck he is for you:
Needs and has the support of the white male over 30 controlled mass media right now?
Why is CBS letting him get away right now with dodging the debate AGREED TO LONG AGO?
Could there be questions about the water MSNBC/GE nuke power plant builder is carrying for the “Senator” who got 300 G from Exelon after watering down a nuke reg bill in IL, voted for Dick Cheney’s 2005 Energy bill with 29 new nukes:
Look how they distorted the fingering of Hilary episode.

The above is the original 43 second plus IN ORDER and with the VOLUME UP as Obama mentions Hilary and fingers her.
When you open below, you’ll see a clip of MSNBC you can roll on.

MSNBC took it OUT OF ORDER and potted down the volume of Obama mentioning Hilary—didn’t even leave the nat sound up on background but also had the anchor speaking over it. She LIED and says it “took a while to get to” the flip off. THEY ARE DISTORTING THE ORDER OF THE TAPE.
And then Jon Stewart, whom I normally respect, carried Obama’s dirty water last night, running the MSNBC version of the tape.
Was there a promise that Obama would be a regular on the show and help Comedy Central’s ratings if Jon aired the distorted version? And allowed Barack to call people calling this a finger flip ‘paranoid’?
It speaks to statesmanship.
Another White boy who doesn’t get it? Michael Moore—who gave a diatribe about Hilary yesterday. Apparently he missed Hillary painting Petreus into a corner a few weeks ago—now the Bushies must bring to Congress any possible peace plan.
Brilliant!
And ignored by the mainstream white male media and the white male comedy and don’t get me started on the left establishment.
The ultra-left was run by a bunch of sexist piggies who were quite happy to let the women clean up and club house—and the women who stuck with them were more than happy to do just that. They deferred getting degrees, for the most part. And they are the opposite of Hillary.
So why didn’t Michael Moore berate Michelle over the man who the U of C system let die—similar to the examples deftly depicted in Sicko? Cuz he’s part of the “I know best” wing of the ultra left.
The American media hasn’t covered how U of C hospital let a guy die.. Here’s a link to an article which does—and it’s openly biased with its use of adjectives—but the facts itself seem solid.

So, all the koolaid drinking bloggers take note: If you’re paid to harass us on the blogs; if the guy is censoring journalists now—what will he do to journalism and free speech while in the White House?

Bill Clinton is right--he should not take any S**T about race from the likes of the Obamas.
Given their 'selling out' the poor people of Chicago in his OWN district (makes it easier to find a maid, maybe?) with Rezko ruining public housing to the tune of 100's of millions---that's a LOT--at least 400 or more units--why is he even considered a 'race' man?
Watching MSNBC distort and edit the video and audio where OBAMA is CLEARLY FLIPPING OFF HILLARY---ASK ANY COLLEGE STUDENT YOU PLAY THE WHOLE TAPE TO--AND DON'T STOP IT---PLAY IT TIL HE TREATS HER LIKE DOG POOP YOU NEED TO WIPE OFF YOUR FOOT!
He's a sellout.
Ayers was a sellout. he RUINED the new left.
The WHOLE WORLD IS WATCHING!

This is new for me I am a life time voting republican and I am white and 65 woman. This time around I am going to vote for Obama, because I believe he can bring the parties together. I was thinking the same thing the senator was talking about of CNN and msnbc. I was thinking the Clintons wanted McCain to win so Hillary could come back in 2012. She does not have the numbers and it would be wrong to count the states that did not follow the rules. I would not put it past them. It does not make sense what Bill Clinton and Hillary are doing to the demeracate party. Those people will do anything for power. I did feel during the Clinton years they used the African Americans only because it was to there advantage. Guess I was right because look what they are doing now. Some old African Americans and White are raciest but most of us are not and I do not think race is a issue this time.
Thank you for your time. Paris Anglin
