Using Democrats Against Democrats

Many Democrats are still operating under the illusion that in spite of the bitter, nasty, divisive primary campaign that just now appears to be drawing to a close (maybe), they are somehow going to win in November. While it is certainly possible that John McCain will not use every advantage the Democrats are giving him, if he opens up and decides to fight, there is an opportunity to rout the Democrats. In recent days, his campaign is showing some signs of fight:

Asked to respond to Obama's comment that the 71-year old
senator is "losing his bearings," McCain said today that questions raised about
his age are "fine with me."

And, he added, if age is a legitimate issue,
so are a few things about his likely opponent.
"Every issue that the
American people want to be an issue, and it's part of their discussions, it's
fine with me," he said in response to the question about his age.

missing a beat, he added the controversial statements of Jeremiah Wright onto
that same list. Obama, McCain noted, "has said that [Wright] is a legitimate
topic of discussion.” He added, “If that's what the American people want to
discuss, that's fine.”

McCain also told reporters that the recent
complimentary remarks ofObama by a Hamas spokesman are also fair game for
debate. Prefacing his comment by saying he believes it's clear Obama "shares
nothing of the values or goals of Hamas," the presumptive GOP nominee added that
the Palestinian organization's favorable assessment of Obama's candidacy is "a
legitimate point of discussion."

"That's of interest to the American
people," he said. "And that is something that needs to be discussed."

If liberals and Democrats don't think their own words can and will be used against them on the campaign trail by our side to unbelievable effect, perhaps they need a bit of a reminder of just how effective the words of an angry Democrat in their own primaries is when used in a Republican General Election campaign.

holy bejesus, you really are delusional. 80% think America is on the wrong track and you expect McSame to win? Doesn't it give you a clue that is 2 of 2 Congressional special elections in solidly Republican districts were won by Dems? The Dems don't even have a candidate yet and all national election polls since the beginning of May show BOTH Obama and Clinton ahead of McCain. I knew denial and dismissal of logic and reason are a big part of religious authoritarianism ... but shheeess! I guess it pays to believe in the supernatural.

So I guess I'm not the only one that thinks you've had alittle to much moonshine.Hamas,isn't that the group that Carter just talked with.It just goes to show that Obama can not only reach across and shake hands with the Republicans,but with world leaders and factions in the world.If you stop thinking everyone is your enemy then you have less enemies!We have to learn to get along.

UM William get a clue dude. Those wonderful polls you like to quote have been consistently be done in heavily democrat areas. Rasmussen's latest poll (covering a much wider section of the populous) says something totally different. And again you are wrong about the election polls. Many of them have McCain winning against Otrauma and very close with hillbill.

Yea right, douchbag.

Rasmussen - a totally Republican biased poll says:

"Rasmussen Markets data gives Democrats a 61.3 % chance of winning in November"

(biased? Three major polls have Bush at 28% approval, Rasmussen 34% - thats what I'm talking about).

Straight talk = dumb and dumber.

Mr. Story,

If you want to quote Rasmussen Report, please get it right. Since the 7th of May, Rasmussen shows a slight edge for Obama.

Again BOYS you are using incorrect Data. I look at the internals of polls instead of the final number because it is NEVER right. Bill I was correct in my quote as usual. I follow internal numbers very closely and try to get it right. The edge you speak of is NOT correct given the scientific method that was used gives a 6 to 1 advantage to the dems. You sir need to know what you are talking about.

I will post the internals as soon as they are released to public. I cannot violate the trust of my source.

According to my source the answer will be known in Nov.Do you own a crystal ball fabian?

Hey "G" other than you being a clueless idiot whom I will enjoy you having to eat your sarcasm in nov. You have no real clue about politics, civics, the Constitution, or anything dealing with the operation of the country. However, that is fine because you are just another person in the 83% (WSJ) who could care less what this nation is about.

I on the other hand do not need your crystal ball because I am a student of America and study politics and polls and trends. I am on the ground every day talking to people and finding out what they do for a living how they feel about issues what is important and I will tell you there will be a lot of shocked armchair wanna be pundits in the fall.

You like many others choose to use emotion and smoke to try and convince people that things are terrible when in fact we are in an ok state. Economy grew .6%. Slow? yes. Recession? No Department of Labor and Statistics report jobless claims fell 400,000 and unemployment is at 4.7 lower than any other President. Gas prices are high - but lets examine why - democrats are blocking refinery building, are blocking tapping the 2nd and 3rd largest oil reserves in the world ANWAR and Gulf Shelf.

I could continue going but your simple one track minds might explode.
