Media Gets an “F” in Math! Superdelegates Can Change Their Minds!

The Media should get an “F” in math since most of them have just parroted the ridiculous math of Chuck Todd (MSNBC) re the Democratic Party’s nomination process.  The analysts, pundits, and print media are assuming that all Superdelegates who have cast their votes for Obama are permanent.  As they SHOULD KNOW, a couple of Superdelegates have already changed their minds; they were originally forClintonand switched to Obama.  When that happened, everyone said ok, since they are allowed to change their votes.  Considering Hillary stomped Obama inWest VirginiaandKentuckyand considering Obama’s definite weakness as a candidate against McCain, the Superdelegates could very well cast their votes for Hillary before the nomination is complete.

The Superdelegates CAN CHANGE THEIR MINDS at any time until they actually cast their votes on the convention floor; and they are not supposed to be rubber stamps for the pledged delegates vote.   NEITHER Obama nor Hillary will have the “magic number” needed to win the nomination outright which is a majority of ALL the delegates, pledged and Superdelegates, a number that will be somewhere between 2026 and 2210.

The Superdelegates will SELECT the nominee based on their arguments in this incredibly close race.  Obama’s “majority of the pledged delegates” is a good argument; but, it is a number that is not even mentioned in the rules so it is just an argument, nothing more and nothing less.  Hillary’s “majority of the popular vote” is a good argument and it is not in the rules either.  The Superdelegates are supposed to consider all of the arguments and the electability of each candidate when they cast their final vote.  Hopefully, they will take their responsibility seriously and nominate the most electable candidate for the fall election.  After all, the goal of the process of SELECTING not ELECTING a nominee is to ELECT a Democratic Party President.  The Superdelegates know that it will be of no value to SELECT a nominee IF that nominee can not get elected!

Lap-Dog Media Eats Up Hillary Comments Re June Primaries

John Harris (Media Hype:  How Small Stories Become Big News, Politico.com, 5/25/08) is correct when he says this kind of "reporting" can have serious effects referring to the media’s misrepresentation of Hillary’s comments about June primaries.  In 2008 the lap-dog media has had a severe and dangerous effect on the outcome of the Democratic Primary with its reckless, false, undocumented, and supposed journalistic pieces! 

 

The misrepresentation of Hillary’s comments re June primaries by the media, especially MSNBC’s Chris Matthews and Olbermann, is typical of the media’s treatment of her campaign.  The media has attacked her constantly while propping up Obama in every gaffe he has made. It is clear that the media wants an African-American President and they will do anything to slam Hillary until she gets out of the race!

 

The best example of irresponsible reporting this season has been Chuck Todd’s (MSNBC) Voodoo Math that has misled the public for months and continues to mislead the public by saying that there is NO WAY for Hillary to win.  Of course, Todd was referring to the actual pledged delegate tally that Hillary would not be able to catch Obama and pass him in the count.  But, he and all the analysts and pundits and news print began to say that Hillary CAN NOT win the nomination–JUST DO THE MATH! 

 

The problem with the false statement that Hillary can not win, just do the math, is that Hillary has had and does have as much a chance to win the nomination as Obama according to Democratic Party rules.  The race is incredibly close and getting the majority of pledged delegates is a "good argument" but it is a meaningless number as far as the Party rules are concerned.  Getting the majority of the popular vote, which Hillary will do, is also a "good argument" and of equal weight with the majority of pledged delegates.  BOTH the popular vote majority and the pledged delegates majority are arguments to be made to the Superdelegates who will decide the nomination in this incredibly close race. 

 

The only real "magic number" that a candidate could get that would give them the nomination outright according to Party rules is a majority of ALL delegates (pledged delegates and Superdelegates), a number that NEITHER Obama nor Hillary will have at the end of the primaries AND THAT IS THE TRUE MATH that the public needs to know. The "magic number" will be somewhere between 2026 and 2210.  So, when Todd and all the analysts and pundits and print media continuously parrot each other by saying that Hillary can not win, just do the math, they are lying to the public and either intentionally or unintentionally dealing Hillary’s campaign a severe blow!  Such media stupidity or outright bias is an outrage; the public deserves fair, unbiased, and responsible reporting, especially when their reports directly affect the Presidency of the United States!

Obama Setting Up “Top Secret” VP Search–Using Bush Tactic Trying To Usurp the Nomination by Acting Like He Already Has It!

Hillary should cut Obama off at the knees on his attempt to usurp the nomination by setting up a Hillary VP search committee.  Setting up the VP search committee would accomplish two objectives:

  • Expose Obama’s moves as presumptive and absurd and
  • Establish once and for all that she is in it to win it!

Today (5/22/08) on Morning Joe, MSNBC, Meeka read a “breaking news” report that she had just received that said that Obama has set up a “top secret” search for his VP!  The American public should not be deceived by this Bush tactic to usurp the nomination. Bush usurped the Presidency in 2000 when he started ACTING like he was the President from the beginning, even though the decision was not final, by taking steps to set up HIS CABINET!  Now, Obama is acting like he is already the nominee by campaigning in general election states and by setting up this absurd “top secret” search for a VP! 

 

Of course, the media is doing the same thing for Obama as it did for Bush in 2000; they are covering Obama’s moves as though there is nothing ridiculous or absurd about his searching for a VP BEFORE he has the nomination.  The media did the same thing in 2000; they covered Bush setting up his cabinet as though he had a perfect right to do so giving the impression to the rest of the country that it was ok for Bush to do this because he was going to be the President! 

 

At least 17 million people think Obama’s VP search is premature and ludicrous and he NEEDS the support of a good percentage of those people IF he wants the Presidency and not just the nomination.  Apparently Obama is falling prey to the belief of those around him that he is the messiah and all he has to do is say something to make it so.  He DOES NOT HAVE the nomination and acting like he does will not make it so!

Mike Barnacle and Bob Shrum Are “Good ‘Ole Boy” IDIOTS!

Bob Shrum (supposed Democratic Strategist) and Mike Barnacle (supposed unbiased journalist) on Morning Joe, 5/19/08, looked like “good old boy” idiots laughing and making fun of Hillary’s campaign.  They are just two Obama tankers trying to laugh off Obama’s weaknesses and clinging to the pie-in-the sky hope that Obama is going to CHANGE the electoral college math!  Yeah, right! 

 

IF the Superdelegates ignore the fact that Obama is a flawed candidate and vote for him because of threats that there will be riots and chaos at the convention, Democrats will lose the general election!  When that happens, I want to see Shrum and Barnacle on Morning Joe the day after McCain is elected apologizing to the American public for their idiotic actions and statements!

Timmy Boy Russert Just a Chauvinistic “Good ‘Ole Boy”

Timmy Boy Russert on Morning Joe, 5/19/08, could not come up with ONE WOMAN’s name as a possible Vice President for his beloved Obama!  Russert’s old, chauvinistic politics need to be put to rest!

Bob Shrum, Democratic Strategist LOSER, is Obama Tanker and Living in an Ivory Tower, Elitist World!

Bob Shrum, a democratic strategist who has done nothing but LOSE, is living in an ivory tower, elitist democrat world; and, he absolutely refuses to acknowledge Obama’s weak underbelly that is going to result in a landslide loss for Democrats in the fall!

 

In addition, Shrum refuses to face the FACT that a huge percentage of women have been offended in this race and WE WILL NOT VOTE FOR OBAMA!  We may actually campaign and vote for McCain!  Shrum just poo poos this sentiment as being “in the heat of the battle” mentality.  I can guarantee you that a huge percentage of women are serious about not voting for Obama and Shrum and his kind (Obama tankers) better take that fact into consideration when they coronate Obama!

 

Women may not riot or cause chaos at the convention as Obama supporters have threatened in order to get the votes of the Superdelegates; but, we will make sure that Obama, a two-year Senator, does not become President of the United States!  So, take that, Shrummie Boy!

John Kerry Drew Over 50,000 at Oregon Rally! What Did It Say For Him? LOSER!

The media is so easily impressed with crowds; they are frothing at the mouth today (5/20/08) re Obama’s huge crowd in Oregon.  The Rolling Stones can draw a huge crowd but I wouldn’t want any of them to be President of the United States.

John Kerry drew over 50,000 at a similar rally in Oregon.  If that huge number says the same thing for Obama as it said for Kerry, it says LOSER!

And, Obama tankers, do not underestimate the strength of Hillary’s support just because we don’t come out to be in huge crowds!  We will not riot or cause chaos at the convention as has been threatened by Obama supporters; but, WE WILL make sure that this two-year senator loses the general election!
