Those Clingy, Bitter Obama Supporters!

Democrats Pennsylvania Brawl Intensifies
[. . .] “This has gotten so bad this year, I’m not sure people can forget about it and put it behind themselves after Tuesday,” said Joe Morgan, a Democratic committeeman for Berks County.
He said the supporters are worse than the candidates when it comes to vindictive attacks.
“The bitterness and anger they have toward people who are not supporting their candidate is something I have never seen before,” he said.
Morgan has been writing his own blog on the race, so at first he decided to remain neutral. He said Obama fans in particular were incensed with him for doing so. His tires were slashed and a complaint was lodged with the Internet service provider for his blog. Morgan is now supporting Clinton. (Emphasis WFI)
Any who have had the displeasure of being deluged with Obama commenters will know exactly the kind of nastiness they are capable of exhibiting. Disgusting as the low standards set by the Obama campaign are, these ‘disciples’ thrive on wallowing! It’s actually pitiful to watch them be so blindly led to the cliff, clamoring to be the first to jump. ~ WFI
What’s the Matter With Obama?
[. . . } Now, they wonder whether the appealing unifier is really a divider.
Obama is trying to change the subject, but he lost his cool demeanor when ABC News questioners Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopoulos returned to his San Francisco statement (among other difficult issues) in Wednesday’s debate. In watching campaign debates dating back to Kennedy-Nixon in 1960, I never before had seen a candidate criticize the moderator or challenge his premises so often (on at least eight occasions). “Look, let me finish my point here, Charlie,” said Obama, after Gibson had interrupted him following a 126-word answer.
The other unprecedented element was the deluge of abuse heaped on the two ABC moderators by reporters on the media, television critics and political writers. They object to prolonging what amounts to a debate on “What’s wrong with Obama?” Exploring whether Barack Obama is a modified Thomas Frank does not depend on television talking heads or Hillary Clinton. Supporters of John McCain, seeking to reel back the Obama Republicans, will press the issue from now to November.
He’s so full of himself and sure that everyone is interested in the roar in his head, he wants to tell his lies before he forgets. As far as I’m concerned, Charlie and George asked the questions most of us have been waiting to hear brought to a large audience. The Obamites are not going to want to hear, “I told you so” and we don’t want to hear ourselves say it, so, please listen to the warnings! ~WFI
About Obama’s Terrorist Acquaintance
[. . .] It’s not as though Ayers and Dohrn have denied or repudiated their crimes. After emerging from years in hiding, they escaped federal prosecution because of government misconduct in gathering evidence, but they don’t pretend they were innocent. In 2001, Ayers said, “I don’t regret setting bombs. I feel we didn’t do enough.”
Dohrn has likewise rationalized the explosions, claiming that “our acts of resistance were tiny and symbolic.” She even went to prison for refusing to testify about an armored-car robbery involving her confederates. That crime was not tiny or symbolic to the two police officers or the security guard who were shot to death in the process.
All this is public record, and Barack Obama would have to be in a coma not to know it. Yet he showed no qualms about consorting with Ayers and Dohrn.
It’s hard to imagine he would be so indulgent if we learned that John McCain had a long association with a former Klansman who used to terrorize African-Americans. Obama’s conduct exposes a moral blind spot about these onetime terrorists, who get a pass because they a) fall on the left end of the spectrum and b) haven’t planted any bombs lately.
You can tell a lot about someone from his choice of friends. What this friendship reveals is that when it comes to practicing sound moral hygiene, Obama has work to do and no interest in doing it.

There are so many bits of information about Obama that string together to present an ugly and terrifying mosaic, I wonder how this man is still a candidate. From his revealed childhood with antiAmerican influences to aligning himself with questionable individuals as an adult, he is none-the less confident in being able to sell himself to “stupid Americans”. He’ll even use an embellished food stamp story to sound like he accomplished something!
He’s too inconsiderate and self-absorbed to realize his ‘bird-flipping’ is an insult to the integrity and intellect of the entire United States population. It’s even a low blow to everyone who is blind-drunk on his kool aid. All that adulation has convinced him he’s so cool and so suave that protocol doesn’t apply. His low standards are not what we need more of and his opinion of Americans is obviously one of someone who does not care what happens to us as a country. As I’ve stated before, no one is more divisive in the presidential campaign than Obama. ~WFI
