Obama campaign takes the final step in loosing me...

The lies told at Selma I thought was my breaking point, I was wrong...today for me demonstrated that it would be very difficult to support Barack Obama:

But we won Wyoming on Saturday, and we just learned that we won Mississippi by a large margin tonight.

Between those two states, we picked up enough delegates to erase the gains by Senator Clinton last Tuesday and add to our substantial lead in earned delegates. And in doing so we showed the strength and breadth of this movement.

But just turn on the news and you'll see that Senator Clinton continues to run an expensive, negative campaign against us. Each day her campaign launches a new set of desperate attacks.

They're not just attacking me; they're attacking you.

Over the weekend, an aide to Senator Clinton attempted to diminish the overwhelming number of contests we've won by referring to places we've prevailed as "boutique" states and our supporters as the "latte-sipping crowd."

I'm not sure how those terms apply to Mississippi and Wyoming -- or Virginia, Iowa, Louisiana, or Idaho for that matter.

I know that our victories in all of these states demonstrate a rejection of this kind of petty, divisive campaigning.

But the fact remains that Senator Clinton's campaign will continue to attack us using the same old Washington playbook. And now that John McCain is the Republican nominee, we are forced to campaign on two fronts.

It's up to you to fight back. Please make a donation of $25 today:

What he did do was make me donate $25.00 to the Clinton campaign. He's demonstrated that he is no different than she is when it comes to the promise of how his campaign would be run and at least she has a better plan for health care and college tuition...

You lost me here.

They're all assholes. All of them. It's politics, fercripessakes. I'm so sick of this holier than thou stench emanating from the Obama supporters. Their hypocrisy is the ultimate turnoff.

"They're not just attacking me; they're attacking you."

It was my OMFG moment, and Susan nailed how I feel right now...

Mark W Adams said...

Oh, Okay. You've just had it with him in general, not for any specific or substantive reason. I get it. It's probably the same phenomenon as my being fed up with Hillary and her gang.

Nothing special. It's just that she's ticked me off. I stopped being pissed at the Obamabots by deciding to avoid dKos until after the primaries, and ended up tiring of Taylor Marsh and BigTentDemocrat for being Hillarybots.

I'm considering organic garden blogging for the duration. Much more soothing and zen-like, and a lot fewer trolls to deal with.

Lisa Renee said...

Mark, that sounds appealing...

I do love Bonsai trees...

:-)

The whole "we aren't going to do that kind of politics" yet they have and they are just gets old. The republicans are going to do that kind of politics so if anything if Obama does get the nomination, his team had better use the small jabs Clinton has thrown at him as practice...

Lisa Renee said...

I also agree with you that the rabid Obama supporters are just as frustrating as the rabid Clinton supporters. They are dividing our party more than I ever thought possible.

Mark W Adams said...

You know what, scratch that. I shouldn't call them Hillarybots.

Clintonoids has a much more appealing ring to it.

Stay tuned for tomorrow's debate: Lady Bugs or Praying Mantis -- which garden sentinel provides the best protection for the buck?

Lisa Renee said...

Praying Mantis are much more awesome from an entertainment aspect.

:-)

Mark W Adams said...

Ahah! Now you show your true colors! Only a radical man-hating feminist would find pleasure in a creature that bites the head off her mate after she has her way with him.

I'll bet Silda Spitzer was wishing she was more of a Mantis than a Lady Bug right about now.

;-)

They are pretty cool though.

Lisa Renee said...

Black widow spiders are cool too...*darn* I shouldn't write that.

:-)

On the Spitzer thing, I find it interesting comparing that story to what's happening in Detroit. From a historical standpoint it's also interesting to note how many of our elected officials of high office have been unfaithful to their wives.

If we tossed every politician out of office that had a sexual encounter paid or unpaid while married it would be one way to get rid of quite a few of them in one fell swoop.

What I really love about the primaries of both parties is that each candidate attacks everyone in the ring to say how much they all suck until there is one winner and then everyone backs that one person and then that person attacks the "true" enemy, the other party's candidate until one of them is elected president. Now, if I was going up against one of these silly geese and they attacked me, my way of life, my family, what I have been doing wrong since the age of nine, and why I should be shot, hung and then quartered; do you honestly think that I would back that person if I lost, just beacuase he or she is in the same political party? Bullshit! But then again, I am not a egotistic, power hunger, two faced, politician looking to screw the country for money, power and legacy.

As for Spitzer, another high and mighty Democrat that was caught being a lowlife and now left office in the Northeast. I was just amazed that it wasn't NJ again. As for throwing out every politician after after an affair, after a while there would only be the Republican party since the Democrats are beating them 3 to 1 when it comes to major sex scandels in the last ten years.

The more this Democratic Party presidential nomination electoral process goes on with Barack Hussein Obama, the less and less and less I care for his candidacy. If people would look past the rhetoric of what he says and truly listen and not just hear what he says, I think his candidacy would plummet and take a bigger nose dive than the housing mortgage situation.
