No, We Can't!

I have been hemming an hawing over following Senator Clinton's request that we all support Barrack Obama. Hillary, true to her word, is going to throw her support behind him and do everything in her power to make sure a democrat is elected to the White House. I would expect nothing less from her. BUT, I am not sure I can support an Obama candidacy. Do I want a McCain 08 sticker on my car? No, not really that either. 

And, we all apologize for our blog falling quiet for so long. We didn't stay true to our word and stopped posting. We can't promise daily posts, but there will be activity on this blog over the course of the election season. This is an important election and it is going to get dirty on both sides. Democrats will demonize John McCain by hinging on their campaign on sound bytes and quotes taken out of context that, in turn, will make McCain seem like and out of touch monster and war monger. Republicans will go after Obama's wife and try to paint Obama as a scary character himself by saying he spends frivolously, has no experience, and that we should question who he really is as a man and senator.  Hopefully, we can become as non partisan and unbiased as possible here at

What incited me today, was the new Barack Obama presidential seal, as seen below. 

I was completely offended, outraged and scared by this image all at once. When Obama first debuted his ridiculous O logo over a year ago, I was disgusted. There is a certain sense of arrogance and pretentiousness that the logo communicates and it seemed to say that this election is all about Barack Obama. The new seal is an insult to the American presidency and shows no respect for the office he is about to assume. Shame on you Barack Obama. 

The new seal, in Latin, says, "Yes, we can!" I say, "No, we can't!" We simply cannot allow someone to use hundreds of millions of dollars and a slick marketing team to win the White House on those grounds alone.

Congratulations in PA

Hillary had a decisive victory last night in Pennsylvania, despite what the media will have you hear. She maintained a double digit lead, even after being outspend almost 3 to 1. CNN has all but crucified Clinton this morning, and most news outlets are still calling for her to throw in the towel by saying her win was not big enough. Rather, what I see is a woman, who despite all odds against her, still enjoys the loyal support of millions of Americas across the country. These Americans, like you and me, do not want their voice silenced and lost in the White House this fall. Sadly, the Obama campaign is attempting to quiet us down by spending and spending.

From the Boston Globe:

"Her first big hurdle is fund-raising: Obama began the month with more than $41 million on hand to spend on the primary campaign, while Clinton was $1 million in debt. Even while she was celebrating last night, she made an unusual plea for cash, asking supporters in her victory speech to go to her website and donate."

Notice how her first hurdle is money? Enough said...

As the day progresses, we are going to be scouring the net for articles that seem fair, honest and unbiased. A next to impossible task I know!

Here are two that are OK...

We are still here, like Hillary

I know there that there have been a lack of posts lately on, but that doesn't mean we have been quiet!
We have been talking to our friends, families and coworkers about Hillary.
In just a few days Hillary will win PA and with our help, the states to come, the nomination and the general election!

Hillary on Leno

Fact vs Fiction

Hillary Clinton will lose New Hampshire and the race will be over
Hillary Clinton wins New Hampshire, defying the predictions and the polls


Hillary Clinton will lose the big states on Super Tuesday and the race will be over
Hillary Clinton wins the big states on Super Tuesday – and wins them by double digits


Hillary Clinton will lose Texas and possibly Ohio on March 4th and the race will be over
Hillary Clinton wins both Texas and Ohio on March 4th – and she wins Ohio by double digits


Despite Hillary Clinton's big victories on March 4th, "the math" works decisively against her and the race is essentially over
The math is simple: neither candidate has reached the number of delegates required to
secure the nomination and either candidate can win


Barack Obama is substantially ahead in the pledged delegate count; pledged delegates are the only measure of success; therefore the race is essentially over
The candidates are within fractions of one another on delegates; Barack Obama needs super delegates to win; and a marginal pledged delegate lead does not determine the outcome


Barack Obama is substantially ahead in the popular vote; Florida and Michigan don’t count; therefore the race is essentially over
The popular vote is virtually tied; half of Barack Obama's narrow vote advantage is from his home state; and his lead excludes Florida and Michigan


Once the remaining states vote, Barack Obama will be substantially ahead in delegates and votes and the race will be over
The race is a dead heat now and no one knows where things will end up after millions of remaining voters in the upcoming states make their choice


Hillary Clinton's situation is dire; her campaign is struggling; her supporters are disillusioned and desperate 
Hillary Clinton and her supporters are calm, confident, and focused heading into the key
state of PA, where she is running strong


Hillary Clinton’s campaign lacks significant grassroots energy; only one candidate has mobilized supporters to take action for the campaign
Hillary Clinton’s supporters across America have written letters, blogged, donated tens of millions of dollars, volunteered millions of hours and made millions of calls


There is a loud and growing chorus of voices asking Hillary Clinton to withdraw from the race
Precisely the same number of voters (22%) think Barack Obama should drop out of the
race as Hillary Clinton


Hillary Clinton is the candidate running a negative, divisive campaign; she is throwing the "kitchen sink" at Barack Obama
Barack Obama has been throwing the sink, the stove, the plates and the garbage can at Hillary Clinton, attacking her integrity and character every day


For Hillary to win the nomination, super delegates will have to "overturn the will of the
The will of the people is split and both candidates need - and are making their case to -
super delegates


Hillary Clinton is threatening to poach pledged delegates from Barack Obama
Barack Obama is reportedly already trying to poach pledged delegates from Hillary Clinton


Florida and Michigan’s voters won't be heard and their delegates won’t be seated all
because of complicated procedural roadblocks
Barack Obama is intentionally disenfranchising voters in two critical states for purely political reasons, namely, that he'll lose his small advantage if they count


Every single word or action from Hillary Clinton, her campaign, her surrogates and her supporters is part of a calculated and cynical political strategy
Hillary Clinton is a loyal Democrat, a lifelong public servant, a tireless and
tenacious candidate, and is fighting hard - and fair - to win with the help of millions of dedicated supporters

Always a different story

Sen. Obama Offers 5th Explanation of NAFTA-Gate
3/10/2008 3:48:24 PM

After days of misleading denials, Sen. Obama has finally acknowledged that a meeting took place between his senior economic advisor and Canadian officials regarding NAFTA. But Sen. Obama now claims that the detailed memo obtained by the AP describing the meeting – and Goolsbee's downplaying of Obama's anti-NAFTA rhetoric – is inaccurate. This is at least the fifth different explanation offered by Sen. Obama and his campaign.

5. 3/10/08 – Sen. Obama: The meeting did happen, they did discuss NAFTA, but advisor just said Obama wanted to make NAFTA 'stronger for U.S. workers.' "So here’s what happens. You’ve got one of my economic advisors goes and visits a Canadian embassy and they’re asking him questions and he says, 'Well, Senator Obama isn’t planning to repeal NAFTA, but he wants to amend it to make it stronger for U.S. workers.' The Canadian embassy writes it up as, 'Well, maybe Obama is not as tough on NAFTA as you might think.' And the Clintons start waving this and saying, 'See? Actually, he’s the one.'" [Mississippi Rally, 3/10/08]

4. 2/29/08: Sen. Obama: 'It did not happen.' Anchor: "So, completely inaccurate, did not happen, end of discussion." Sen. Obama: "It did not happen." [WKYC TV, 2/29/08]

3. 2/28/08 - Rice: 'There had been no contact.' “The Canadian ambassador issued a statement that was absolutely false. There had been no contact. There had been no discussions on NAFTA. So we take the Canadians at their word…period.” [MSNBC, Susan Rice, 2/28/08]

2. 2/27/08 – Obama advisor just said 'hello.' "Goolsbee: Canada's consul general in Chicago contacted him ‘at one point to say ‘hello’ because their office is around the corner." [ABC, 2/29/08]

1. 2/27/08 – 'No conversations have taken place' with the Canadian government on NAFTA. “Earlier Thursday, the Obama campaign insisted that no conversations have taken place with any of its senior ranks and representatives of the Canadian government on the NAFTA issue.” [CTV, 2/29/08]

SNL at it again!

Another great SNL opener from last night!

They might have not endorsed Hillary officially, but they sure seem to like her!

Have the tides turned?

I wanted to leave you all with a few thoughts for the weekend. Over the past few days I was incapacitated with the flu and was unable to watch TV or check any online news. Perhaps I should get sick more often, as when I checked todays news there seems to lots of positive things out there about Mrs. Clinton. From Wolf telling us she "has her mojo back" to the talks about getting delegates from MI and FL seated at the convention this June.

While this new lean toward Hillary is more than welcome by me, I am left wondering if we really are all being played like a fiddle by the media. This whole election seems so orchestrated. We have front runner Clinton surpassed by the scrappy little Senator from Illinois only to once again come out on top a few months later. Throughout the whole debacle we have been glued to the TV, Internet and even our local papers. For once the media economy is being driven by something other than Britney Spears.

While the democratic party is being torn apart (I don't buy this whole "we will be a united party in the end BS" after the past few weeks), John McCain finesses his campaign and the media carefully crafts the next ups and downs of the campaign....

Obama the whiner

Firstly congratulations to Senator Clinton! Our voices were heard!!!

There has been a lot of whining from the Obama camp about the delegates and how they are assigned. Obama complains about the super delegates not having to be tied to the outcome of the state. This whole complaint, to me, seems rather childish and is a good example of the kind of leader Obama would be.

He wants to change the rules mid race. The fact is, that he knew these rules before the race started and only now, because the race is so close, he wants to bend them in his favor. CNN has even gone so far as to poll people in yesterday's elections to get their opinions. The majority of the people thought the super delegates should be tied to the outcome of the state. My question is: Did they even know what or who super delegates were before this race?

Perhaps these same people would be angry to know that in TX, where Sen. Clinton won the popular vote, she may receive less delegates? It is this same complex delegate math that keeps the race so close, and too tight to call.

My hypothetical, since that what Obama likes to deal in when it comes to delegates, is to take it all one step further. Why don't we see what it would be like if we had a winner takes all primary like the Republicans. The chart to your right are the current results of the primary if we are to follow the Republican model of winner take all (super delegates included).

What we see is that Clinton has a clear advantage, and then if you add in Florida and Michigan she is well on her way to sealing up the nomination. So maybe Barack better let the rules stay the way they have always been. Stop whining, Sen. Obama.

HILLARY appears on SNL!

Following another clever skit, one that again contrasted the media's fawning adulation of Obama with the biased hostility exhibited towards Hillary - Senator Clinton appeared to trade a few barbs with her impersonator Amy Poehler.

And, of course, to utter those seven famous words:

"Live from New York, it's Saturday Night!"

Thought on the war comments

I have been trying to process the debate from the other night and am still trying to figure out what impact it will have on Tuesday. One thing I am tired of is Obama priding himself with saying "NO" to Iraq. CNN writes today, quoting Obama: "Once we had driven the bus into the ditch, there were only so many ways we could get out," he said during Tuesday's debate in Ohio. "The question is, 'Who's making the decision initially to drive the bus into the ditch?' "

Well it wasn't him! A simple sentence, with no bias, could have followed: Senator Obama was not in national office at the time, and was therefore unable to cast a vote in either direction. Most uneducated voters would read the CNN article, or others like it and think that Sen. Obama had cast a vote against the war. He did not.

I was talking with fellow HOTforHILLARY blogger Scott, and he mentioned something very telling of the entire Obama phenomenon... Obama talks as if his saying no to Iraq as one of his greatest accomplishments. He often relies this opposition to the war as one of his biggest difference and therefore superior qualities to Sen. Clinton. Yet his biggest accomplishment, is an accomplishment of words! He was not in the Senate, and could not vote on this issue.

Where are his accomplishments of action???

Yet it is somehow fitting that, like his entire campaign, his proudest moment was one of non-action and simply words.

Who Knew SNL was could still be funny!

I had long given up on SNL. I miss my cast of Chris Katan, Anna Gasteyer, Cheri O'Teri, Molly Shannon, Will Ferrell and all.... Though I do love fellow BC grad Amy Pohler and think Kristin Wigg and Maya Rudolph are grand! This weekend was funny, and was the first place ot openly acknowledge Obama being in bed with the news media!

Well, Senator Clinton has (rightly) gone on the attack this weekend. But what I wanted to point out is that CNN has been unfairly controlling their message boards. Several articles had what could be seen as anti Obama comments and CNN has removed them.

In the next few days, we plan on documenting this phenomenon as we aren't the only ones who have noticed it. Please contact CNN and let them know that YOU KNOW THEY ARE UNFAIRLY COVERING THIS ELECTION.
