Gee I wonder why there was absolutely no mention of this by any mainstream media outlet….
even the suggestion of association with you is used in Republican attack ads…
A new ad by the National Republican Senatorial Committee against Al Franken, centering around the mere possiblity that Franken might endorse Obama…
Franken isn’t alone however, the NRSC and local republican groups is using Obama to attack Democrats around the nation. Here’s a link to a CNN ticker story with more.
I watched with nausea as Obama spoke a while back in Minneapolis and praised and praised the popular former senator from Minnesota, Paul Wellstone, who unfortunately was killed several years ago in a plane crash.
I couldn’t help but think of David Sirota’s article about Obama in The Nation, Mr. Obama goes to Washington, in which Obama refers to Wellstone as a gadfly. Gadfly is defined as; a persistent irritating critic; a nuisance.
In a similar vein and a must read is Harper’s Magazine’s, Barack Obama Inc.
According to the latest Pew Center Poll;
Obama would lose one quarter of Hillary supporters in the general election. A quarter of Democrats (25%) who back Clinton for the nomination say they would favor McCain in a general election test against Obama. The “defection” rate among Obama’s supporters if Clinton wins the nomination is far lower; just 10% say they would vote for McCain in November, while 86% say they would back Clinton.
“Obamacans” – those Republicans who are supporting Obama — are outnumbered two-to-one by what we would have to call “McCainocrats.” There goes Obama’s theory of winning the election by converting republicans.
