The blogs are starting to go into a slow burn over the possibility that the Western Wall prayer by Obama was a setup by his campaign.
If that proves out to be correct there will be no way for him to cover that somebody on his staff had the content of his prayer to shuffle it off to the press.
It will simply blow the wheels right off the bus and there will be no end to the blow back.Comment Posted By SlimGuy On 29.07.2008 @ 04:51
Well the Rogers and Aravosis strange bedfellows were linked up during the Foley mess to Bill Burton as their go between to the Dem party.
The same Bill Burton is now on the Obama campaign staff.
Nothing to see here move along.
Idiots like these don't have the no coordination restrictions of 527s.Comment Posted By SlimGuy On 1.07.2008 @ 01:46
Rerun all the Dem debates if they are still on your DVR or whatever and one thing comes across. On any issue during the debates the only quickly glossed over the large implications and bogged down in the mechanics of the legislation and which fine point of it each was working toward.
News flash to those people, you are running for the President of the USA this IS NOT as Senate campaign.
Obama wants to talk to everyone...yeah Pelosi showed us how well that all worked.
Only a short while later Israel had to do a little adjustments to a place in Syria and make the place a remodel job for the Syrians. Which BTW they are rebuilding.Comment Posted By SlimGuy On 28.01.2008 @ 01:08
I have a question I have been trying to research but have not been successful so far in making a determination.
In the Republican primary in SC some independents and Dems voted since it is an open primary.
Now with a different Democrat primary in progress today are those voters who participated in the Republican primary allowed to vote again or not in the Democrat primary?
Double the voter impact? I have not been able to find an answer yet.Comment Posted By SlimGuy On 26.01.2008 @ 10:00
If I recall correctly Dennis K also had his name still attached to the ballot in Michigan from some reports I read.
The restriction in Fl as I understand was on advertising or campaigning. However I believe they were still able to do fund raising events here and some reports have shown that those events have become 'a lot larger' than historic fund raisers.
Also Bill Clinton is in the state today per one of the blogs in my RSS feed and he will likely be touting his wife's candidacy as a proxy.
There was also something in my RSS the other day about Clinton raising an issue with an Obama advertisement in Georgia reaching a few subscribers in Fl by some method on a cable system near the state line.Comment Posted By SlimGuy On 26.01.2008 @ 09:53
I think that Fred knows NH is so far left that it makes so little sense to even try to play there requires you to almost anything that sounds conservative. Maverick and Paul are more in line with that state in a lot of ways.
McCain won there last time around, but he needed a lot of independents to do it.
With this setup now, it looks like Edwards and Obama will take a large chunk of those voters and Paul will capture the libertarian leaner.
So McCain will be undercut by all of that and Mitt could sneak across the finish line in the process.Comment Posted By SlimGuy On 6.01.2008 @ 02:12
I will be looking to see more if there emerges in NH a bit of the left side doing their own any body but Hillary shifts like some have suggested happened in Iowa.Comment Posted By SlimGuy On 5.01.2008 @ 12:15
Iowa is a state self identified as 45% Evangelical Christian and also self described as Populist, both of which play into the hands of Huck and work against Rudy and Mitt. I don't trust Zogby for anything their credibility simply isn't there. Some are even suggesting that Paul could pull a 3rd place in Iowa because of the skew of the state and NH sure will be more to his libertarian style.
Here in Florida we have counties with more people than all of Iowa and pushing close to throwing in NH to boot.
The Republicans have to skew their message in Iowa, NH and Michigan back to back to gain favor to do well. It won't be till South Carolina that a real test will be done.
Fred seems to be the only one staying on message and frankly NH because of their bias would simply be a waste of time and resources.
Rudy saw it about Iowa and basically ignored the place. I for one think more should have and worked on other states that matter more.Comment Posted By SlimGuy On 3.01.2008 @ 11:37
It would seem reasonable that if McCain were the target of this that it would have at least been broached in his prior run at the President.Comment Posted By SlimGuy On 3.01.2008 @ 02:10
Based of past known statistics here is what you are looking at.
Republicans will bring to the table about 85,000 voters..not in a county, that's the whole state.
45% of those voters are evangelical Christians, note not just religious which I support strongly but a very identifiable interest class.
Iowa tends historically to vote for the most conservative of the pack, not necessarily the most electable.Comment Posted By SlimGuy On 1.01.2008 @ 18:56
