The Election is not Over and Obama has not Won

Barack Obama's campaign team wants you to think that the election is in the bag for The One and has its bloggers out in force announcing that the election is over, it's Barry, hands down, don't even question it. But not so quick. William Kristol asks, Can McCain and Palin catch up? His answer, "Of course!" In an article in the Weekly Standard Kristol writes:

Despair is what the Obama campaign is hoping and working for. If a campaign can convince supporters of the other candidate that the race is effectively over, the enthusiasm and volunteer efforts drop off--as does, ultimately, their turnout on Election Day. Just as important, undecided and loosely affiliated voters become persuaded there's no real contest and lose any incentive to look closely at the candidates. This explains the efforts of the Obama campaign--aided by a colluding media--to sell the notion that the race is over, that McCain supporters should give up, and undecided voters should tune out.

Character is a legitimate issue. Obama hasn't shown much in the way of leadership or political courage, and he's consorted with dubious figures. It's fair to ask whether Barack Obama is personally trustworthy enough to be president, and the McCain campaign shouldn't be intimidated from going there.

Obama and Biden are orthodox liberals. They're for raising taxes, federally funding abortions, naming activist judges, and losing wars.

Obama and Biden are far left of the average American voter, who shouldn't be sucked in by the mainstream media's campaign against Main Street's good common sense. But don't think it's too late to do anything. Click here for information about how to register to vote in Cook County, Illinois.

Love the pic Publia! I am getting ready to be an election judge here in the 10th and have a class next Saturday. Can't wait to agitate my fellow election judges who vote to the left. They can't ever believe that a young man of 30 years votes Republican, is active in the party and can easily outwit them on policy discussions with facts that roll off the tongue!

Glad to hear you are doing your part, Lone Wolf! Would suggest, however, that you not agitate your fellow judges, as that is a no-no. Also, you will need to cooperate with them to get the job done. Just the fact that you are there with all your teeth intact, shaved, and not driving a pickup with a rifle rack will deprive them of their most cherished viewpoints. You may also find--much to your dismay--that the Democrats are good, Patriotic Americans who are merely misguided. If you study your Judge's manual like crazy and know it throughly they will also love and respect you and turn to you for most everything. It pays to become the expert.

If you shoot me an email (click on the profile to get the address)I'll send you what I have found to be the genuine problems at and in the polling place and what to do about it. You won't be learning most of that at a Cook County judge's school!
