Quoting MD80fanatic (Reply 97):

GALLUP's 'traditional' likely voter model shows Obama with a two-point advantage over McCain on Thursday, 49% to 47%, this is within poll's margin of error...

That's -yesterday- thursday.....not last week or any time prior.

If you have a problem with the poll, contact Drudge or Gallup. Throw the flag on them, why don't you. Smile

Thats good for the Obama campaign. It will keep the pressure up show the supporters that they need to go out and vote

I guess all the advance partying at the Obama campaign might hinge on the results of the "tape".......

http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=78259

Where Mrs. Obama is reportedly heard as saying some illuminating things.....

Mrs. Obama said she had hoped the African media "was mature enough to be in the front to give unwavering support to her husband, a man Africans should identify themselves with."

"African Press International is supposed to support Africans and African-American view," she reportedly said. "It is strange that API has chosen to support the racists against my husband. There is no shame in being adopted by a stepfather. All dirt has been thrown onto my husband's face and yet he loves this country. My husband and I know that there is no law that will stop him from becoming the president, just because some American white racists are bringing up the issue of my husband's adoption by his stepfather. The important thing here is where my husband's heart is at the moment. I can tell the American people that my husband loves this country and his adoption never changed his love for this country. He was born in Hawaii, yes, and that gives him all the right to be an American citizen even though he was adopted by a foreigner."


If true this calls into question not only Barack's suitability for office, but also his wife's suitability as first lady.

The fact that this story is still largely kept hidden speaks a little towards the size of the threat as perceived by the Obama campaign.

assuming that tape is true, (and I have my doubts) it is going to create a problem. referring to American "White" racists isn't exactly politically correct and just divisive politics. Again we have no idea this tape even exists.

I don't think Michelle Obama is stupid enough to say something like that..

I'll second that. She always appears very calm, collected and speaks her thoughts the same.

Yep, those students that illegally voted in Ohio at their colleges need to go back to their homes and vote again.

Quoting Dreadnought (Reply 95):
"Income redistribution" and "share the wealth" and "some people should give up some of their pie so others can have more" should be dead givaways. Those are staples of socialism. You know what they say - if something looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and walks like a duck, then it's a duck.

An interesting point from Eugene Robinson, from the Washington Post Writers Group:

Quoting http://www.thestar.com/News/USElection/article/518890:

Wednesday's debate had hardly begun when McCain accused Obama of fomenting "class warfare" through his proposed tax policies. When is the last time anyone used such an archaic term to describe the principle, long established in the tax code, that the wealthy ought to pay taxes at a higher rate than the poor? What are the classes that McCain fears Obama will incite? Will the upper-middle class have to barricade its leafy suburbs against marauding middle-class Jacobins from less-leafy suburbs nearby?

McCain wouldn't let this point go. Returning far too often to the case of "Joe the plumber" – a man named Joe Wurzelbacher, who Obama met recently in Ohio – McCain charged that Obama's proposals would raise the man's taxes. The way McCain put it was that Obama wanted to "take that money from him and spread the wealth around."

McCain apparently intended the phrase "spread the wealth," which Obama had uttered in his conversation with Wurzelbacher, to strike fear in the hearts of right-thinking Americans. But it's nothing more than an accurate definition of taxation, which most human civilizations have long accepted.

I guess McCain was reaching back to the days when the idea of redistributing wealth had socialist connotations, but socialism is dead – except on Wall Street, where a huge chunk of the nation's financial system is now owned by the federal government.
