On Meet the Press, Tom Brokaw asked Speaker Pelosi a question on the tighening of the race in which she responded:

"REP. PELOSI: I think that Senator Obama chose the vice presidential candidate that brought balance to his ticket. It's his choice. We're going into the future. That isn't even that–I mean, it's a close poll in either way. But I'm very confident about Senator Obama's success because these polls are about likely voters. They're people who vote in the last two elections. Senator Obama has a–and Senator Clinton, too, has attracted millions more people to the political process, some who have never voted, some who haven't voted for a long time. So I don't think that the–I think it's a OK poll, he's ahead and that's good, but I think that his support is much stronger than that. And as we leave this convention united, stronger than ever, organized, focused and disciplined, to have the grassroots organization, to have the clarity of message, of this great ticket, Obama-Biden, I'm very confident about the success that we'll have in November, and then the success for jobs and health care and education in–come January." From MTP, 8/24/08

However, MSM, is very aware that they are only giving part of the picture regading polls and that the polling data cannot in anyway give an accurate accounting of the true picture due to the thousands of new applicants. However, GOP-owned media wants to give the PERCEPTION that Barack is slipping in the polls and the race close.

MSM also continuses to say Barack is not specific when he is and has been very specific in his speeches on how we must solve our problems today on a myriad of issues. Another lie they want to leave in the minds of the American public. GOP-owned media likes to say he has no experience, a total fabrication. Some men are born with a certain talent or genuis, example a genuis to play an instrument or paint without any formal training. Some people are born with certain talents and Barack was born to be a leader of men in enabling to unite and tackle problems which have too long been ignored. We are at a crossroads and we have a profound decision to make on which way the United States will go. Will we continue to spiral downwards into decay or will we pick ourselves up out of GOP domination and control which has done nothing for the American people and bring back the American dream.

However, we live in the time fortunately where every eye shall see and every ear shall hear and people are not as dumb as GOP-owned MSM would like them to be.

We must not give into panic, those of us who support Barack Obama. We must remain hopeful as his slogan reminds us. There are going to be pitfalls in the road our strength is in our confidence that we will overcome. As Rep. Jessie Jackson, Jr. stated today in regards to the Democratic Party - this is not a week to talk about losing, this is a week to talk about winning!
