JOHN MCCAIN, BARACK OBAMA - THIS RACE IS FAR FROM OVER

I have followed politics for my entire adult life. The first election that I participated in, I voted for Gerald Ford when he ran against Jimmy Carter. My candidate lost and though disappointed in the outcome, the excitement of knowing that I had the privilege to participating in one of our most glorious displays of freedom still leaves me with the same awe today at the greatness of our Nation as it did that first time in 1976.

All elections create a certain air of anxiousness with voters because, let's face it, when it comes to our vote everyone of us is extremely partisan. Even those who decide on the day of the election, once that decision is made partisanship sets in and throughout the coverage on election night either excitement or disappointment reigns in every voters heart as we cheer for the victory of our candidate.

Some of this comes from our inherent belief as Americans in winning. But when it comes to elections that winning spirit is stronger than even the most exciting sports contest because elections determine whether this Nation that we love will take a course following a direction that matches our own personal, political, religious and philosophical beliefs.

Elections by their very nature create excitement, anger, partisanship and disappointment because all of us want and need to back the winner. The closer that we get to any election day the four things I just mentioned become more pronounced with each passing day and this election is no different that any other in that sense yet calls for calm persist daily. When in actuality the emotions we are seeing are common in every election.

As a conservative who will be voting Republican and back wholeheartedly the McCain/Palin ticket I have begun to see an anxiousness that is in many ways becoming a resignation by many toward the outcome of this election. Anxious that McCain hit hard against Obama and resignation that because of polling and the constant Obama barrage that we have had thrust at us in by Main Stream Media that this election is already over and the casting of our votes on November 4 is immaterial because the outcome is already decided.

Throughout my experience in following elections, especially because of being a conservative and voting Republican, every election has had its anxiousness toward whether our candidate can win because in nearly every election the Republican candidate especially in the Presidential race is portrayed as the underdog. Even Ronald Reagan who won two landslides over first Jimmy Carter and then Walter Mondale was cast as the underdog in both elections.

This year the anxiousness and resignation that I am seeing seems more pronounced than it has in previous elections. Almost as if many in who feel this way have resigned themselves into thinking that we have no choice in this outcome since the media and the polls have already decided that Obama will be the winner.

First I remind you of a quote from former New York Yankee catcher Yogi Berra, "It ain't over till it's over." The truth is that this like any election , "ain't over," until the last vote is cast and every vote is counted. In each election that I have been involved in since I first voted in 1976, Republicans always, I stress ALWAYS find themselves behind in the polls.

Why ? Most pollsters lean to the left and as such when taking into account the sampling of likely or registered voters or polls that , "randomly," choose a sampling of people, the sampling ALWAYS has more who call themselves Democrat than Republican. Which of course scews the poll toward the Democrat candidate. This year the samplings seem more Democrat leaning that in other elections. Just last week for example the AP poll sampled 40% Democrat and 29% Republican which resulted in a 9 point lead for Obama.

Another aspect in this election which creates the air of Obama victory more than the air of Democrat victory in other elections is the constant barrage of Obama in the news. We have been hammered with Obama this and Obama that for months and for a time McCain could not get more than a short mention in most news coverage of the election. Even now with the election taking the spotlight the majority of reporting in negative toward McCain and especially Governor Palin and extremely positive toward Obama.

Never before has a candidate had as much free favorable air time as Obama has had with the love affair he is having with the media. Their obvious bias and favoritism toward him has prevented a true venting of the Democrat candidate which is also why there are still so many questions about just who Barack Obama is.

All of this has created a resignation with McCain supporters that could pose a problem at the polls because of an almost , "what's the use," attitude that may cause some to not vote because they feel it won't matter anyway. Let me tell you THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO FEEL AND THINK !

This barrage of Obama and bias toward him both in the polls and the media is there to create the air of discouragement in those who support John McCain and Sarah Palin. They want us to lose our excitement in the election. They want us to fear that we have already lost. They want us to resign ourselves to an Obama victory. They want us to give up. They want us to stay away from the polls on election day. They want us by our resignation to actually help Obama win because come November 4 we have already given up !

Don't fall into their trap. Don't resign yourself into thinking that Obama has already won. Don't give up because this election is FAR FROM OVER ! McCain was counted out in the primaries yet he won the nomination. Republicans NEVER have the advantage in coverage or support in the media and they have ALWAYS shown negative toward our candidates.

They vilified Reagan, and they are doing the same with McCain. The 24/7 news adds to this discouragement because the barrage never ends. Don't buy into it and take the coverage for what it is worth, a blatant campaign by the press to elect Barack Obama. As far as the polls go, there is ONLY one poll that counts and that is the one in the polling booth on election day.

Reagan was behind in the polls in both 1980 and 1984 and won in two landslides. Bush was behind in the polls as much as five points on election day and WON the election by five points. Even the exit polling in 2004 had everyone believing as late as 6 PM Eastern time that John Kerry was winning and winning huge. Then the actual votes totals began to come in and an entirely different picture started showing.

Personally I still believe in the American people. I believe that they understand what we face in this world and the true ramifications of this election. Call me an eternal optimist but I believe that voters on election day will forget the Obamahype and the rhetoric and when it is just one voter alone in every voting booth across this Nation many things that polls and press cannot show will come into play.

Americans want someone as their President who knows from experience what to do in a crises. Americans want someone as Commander in Chief who understands the world and the dangers that are real and threatening. Americans want someone as their President who does not have to learn what to do but knows what to do from day one. When voters stand in that booth the hype, the fancy words, the twisting of the facts and the cries from the crowds who have been whipped into a frenzy will disappear.

When voters enter that booth across this Nation the mania will cease and the truth of selection will face each voter with the cold hard facts. Do we want inexperience and someone untested who we still know nothing about to lead this Nation through troubled times ? Or do we want someone who has stood the test of time and has the experience to lead immediately without hype or the frenzy of the masses. When voters face the real choice alone in that booth, I believe that the majority will realize that the only real choice is John McCain.

I agree. Let's fight media bias together. There's been a lot of talk in the corporate media about a Obama/Ayers "association". Some claim that it's been a long time coming.

But I'm still waiting for John McCain to denounce his unwholesome relationship with G. Gordon Liddy. Where is the moral outrage, and who hears cries of conspiracy from the Right regarding mainstream media's suppression of this story?

Read the nasty details in THIS LINK to an article from May.

Here are some highlights:

“How close are McCain and Liddy? At least as close as Obama and Ayers appear to be. In 1998, Liddy's home was the site of a McCain fundraiser. Over the years, he has made at least four contributions totaling $5,000 to the senator's campaigns -- including $1,000 this year.

Last November, McCain went on his radio show. Liddy greeted him as "an old friend," and McCain sounded like one. "I'm proud of you, I'm proud of your family," he gushed. "It's always a pleasure for me to come on your program, Gordon, and congratulations on your continued success and adherence to the principles and philosophies that keep our nation great.
Which principles would those be? The ones that told Liddy it was fine to break into the office of the Democratic National Committee to plant bugs and photograph documents? The ones that made him propose to kidnap anti-war activists so they couldn't disrupt the 1972 Republican National Convention? The ones that inspired him to plan the murder (never carried out) of an unfriendly newspaper columnist?

Liddy was in the thick of the biggest political scandal in American history -- and one of the greatest threats to the rule of law. He has said he has no regrets about what he did, insisting that he went to jail as "a prisoner of war."

All this may sound like ancient history. But it's from the same era as the bombings Ayers helped carry out as a member of the Weather Underground. And Liddy's penchant for extreme solutions has not abated.

In 1994, after the disastrous federal raid on the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas, he gave some advice to his listeners: "Now if the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms comes to disarm you and they are bearing arms, resist them with arms. Go for a head shot; they're going to be wearing bulletproof vests. ... Kill the sons of bitches."

He later backed off, saying he meant merely that people should defend themselves if federal agents came with guns blazing. But his amended guidance was not exactly conciliatory: Liddy also said he should have recommended shots to the groin instead of the head. If that wasn't enough to inflame any nut cases, he mentioned labeling targets "Bill" and "Hillary" when he practiced shooting.”

I agree Ken, a lot of people are starting to lose hope and I am one of them. I will still vote and am doing everything in my power to spread the word about Obama. I just don't have the confidence I had before. Between the media and voter fraud, they have both showed me how low that Obama will go to win.

Mccain's too old. He's showing serious signs of senility, by inciting racial hatred to vulnerable people who don't associate with anyone other than the people within their community (i.e. church, or immediate families). Mccain uses defamotory arguments to target people who are predisposed to believe that Obama is somehow related to Osama, just because of the similarity of the names. This is tenuous and nothing more than inciting racial hatred by pumping smears and fears into the hearts of people who are going to vote Mccain anyway.
I don't really see why Mccain is dividing the country so much, when Obama is all about lifting the potential of the Middle-Class up. Also, the fact that the Christian community is making it sounds as if only their religious community is the one who will be voting for Mccain, and that non-Christian people are voting for Obama, is turning a ton of Independent voters toward Obama very fast. That wasn't very wise to embrac that notion.. quite stupid to draw lines like that actually. There are a lot of non-Christians in this vast diverse country.

Here's the problem: The campaign won't let McCain be McCain. He's an honorable guy, but they've put the spotlight on the power-hungry, culture-war mongering, incurious pitbull he picked as his backup. She has stirred up the worst in Americans. It's the old "if you're not with us, you're against us."
So, I'm giving my vote to the dignified consitutional scholar from Illinois. In my dictionary, "elite" means "the best." And doesn't America deserve the best?

Polling numbers seem to me to have a momentum all their own. Who knows if this is intentionally or unintentionally stoked by the media. I remember Dukakis being far, far behind GHWB. The GOP accusation that he was a "card carrying member of the ACLU" seemed to hurt him, especially because he responded defensively at first. But in the last week or so Dukakis wised up and decided to embrace the accusation, and took the approach of something like "Yes, and I'm proud to be a member of the ACLU..." which made him look better than when he was trying to find some kind of defense for the ACLU thing. And amazingly, the polls got a lot closer, relatively speaking. I think the margin had been 10 points or more in favor of Bush, and I think the margin in the national polls got down to 5% or less just in the last week or so. I don't remember the exact numbers, but the point is that you really never know when a simple turn of a phrase or some random event can shift momentum, and once it shifts it seems that people get on the band wagon and then the numbers continue in that direction even without any further substantive changes by the campaigns per se. Personally, I'm an Obama supporter, but it's quite true that it aint over til its over. For McCain it's a matter of finding that one thing (or two, or three things) to send the pendulum swinging the opposite way, and then hope that it swings past vertical by November 4.

Palin abused power in trooper case.

Wise choice for VP, she already has a record of abuse.
One chance in three that McCain will pass away due to age while in office.

But then of course you imbeciles voted for Bush. The Iraq war: Abortion after the fact.

For those who vote just on the abortion issue. It is not an issue. It is the law for which no one likes including Democrats but abortion is just a symptom of another problem. Law or no law, people WILL get abortions. If it is a big problem for you then instead of voting in lying Republicans in office, who can not or will not change the law. You should fix the problem yourselves and start adopting these unwanted kids. Oh yeah, you don't want them either. So you /we are also part of the problem.
You have a choice here: War or No War. Let's see you flag wavers volunteer your kids to die in an unjust war. Yeah, abortion after the fact.

Obama won't lift the middle class. It's just campaign rhetoric.

And it's CNN and NYT and WaPo that's inciting the divide with their focus on sensationalism and obsfuscating the argument from McCain, which is not about calling Obama a terrorist or questioning whether he's Arab or Muslim.

Palin abused power in trooper case.

Read up, John Reynolds.

You have a choice here: War or No War. Let's see you flag wavers volunteer your kids to die in an unjust war.

Why don't you go volunteer your hippie son to be a human shield? What an idiotic comment. Obama isn't going to end the war. Essentially, at this stage, there's not much difference between the Bush plan, the McCain plan, and the Obama plan. The war in Iraq is drawing down, btw. What are you still going on about? The anti-war movement lost that one.

Democrats in 2006 promised to end the war; after they gained power, one of them admitted to having lied themselves into power.

I've become enthusiastic again, Ken. Your post, and some others along these same lines have changed my opinion. But even if I believed McCain didn't have a chance I would still vote for him. I can't imagine not voting in this election. Although my vote isn't going to make any difference, since Texas is a Red State anyway. The swing state voters will make the difference, as always. Makes it seem rather useless, but I will vote!

Hey Merge Divide: A little contrast on your Libby vs. Ayers connection:

How many people did G. Gordon Liddy kill? How many times did he bomb the U.S. Capitol or Pentagon?

How much time did Liddy spend in jail and compare it to Ayers, who got off Scot free on a technicality...

Give that one a rest!

Now, Dan: from your very first sentence YOU showed that it is Obama supporters who are dividing this country by invoking race, age and any negative you can to undermine McCain. One wonders why you don't spend your time telling us why your candidate, who is intimately linked to Marxists, communists and revolutionary terrorists throughout his life,is such a great guy. But instead, you devote yourself to ripping down a great American and sowing more seeds of the division and racial hatred YOU claim to decry.

"wordsmith",

"And it's CNN and NYT and WaPo that's inciting the divide with their focus on sensationalism and obsfuscating the argument from McCain, which is not about calling Obama a terrorist or questioning whether he's Arab or Muslim."

Actually, you only have Sarah Palin to blame for that (as well as the extreme rightwing nut jobs that own the air waves and FOX News).

"The war in Iraq is drawing down, btw. What are you still going on about? The anti-war movement lost that one."

Your intended point is completely illogical. If the war is truly drawing down, that means a clear victory for the anti-war movement. I'll reserve any conclusions on this issue until the NIE report is released in full (after the election, naturally).

mike's america,

Wait, let me see if I can follow your logic... since Liddy is actually a convicted felon, and Ayers is not, it naturally follows that McCain's active friendship with Liddy is less meaningful than Obama's cursory relationship working with Ayers on educational reform?

You guys are always great for some amusing light-reading. Thanks for your feedback.

Has anyone else noticed the tremendous effort involved in avoiding the important issues at hand and the amount of energy being used to focus continually on everything but the REAL issues. Are we allowing the illuminati reform to sway us by their Halloween trick or treat methodologies? Remove the masks and let the intelligent majority of Americans determine what needs to be done to our bankrupt, floundering country.

Ahhh... resorting to name-calling when you are unable to construct a response with substance. If you can't follow the logic of the discussion, and feel a need to change the subject, I wonder why you aren't working for the McCain/Palin campaign? Or perhaps you are...
