Obama Still Can't Close The Deal

After a week of hammering John McCain on the economy, Obama still cannot pull away from his rival. The dice has rolled his way with the banking crisis and the bailouts, but he has not been able to capitalize on an issue that experts say leans in his favor.

In some instances, he is not drawing the crowds that were once used by the liberal media as a sign that he was going to walk away with this election.

“You all know that you hold this election in your hands,” Sen. Russ Feingold, a Democrat who said he worked on ethics legislation with Obama, told a crowd of about 6,000 cheering Obama fans in the arena next to Lambeau Field. “We just barely won this state for Al Gore in 2000 and we just barely won this state for John Kerry in 2004.”

The numbers in Wisconsin and Minnesota are getting close enough that the Obama campaign closed its 11 campaign offices in North Dakota and moved the 50 staffers there to these two states.

Just a week ago, John McCain and his vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin — who can bring out crowds the way Obama can — appeared in this same stadium, Resch Center, to a crowd of 10,000 fans. There were an uncharacteristic amount of empty orange seats for Obama’s rally.

In their defense, Obama's backers note their rally was held on Monday at noon, compared to a Thursday night rally for McCain and Palin.

I think there is some truth to that excuse because many of Obama's supporters are seldom up out of bed at noon. Some of them are staying up late removing smear videos, which they posted on You Tube to destroy Sarah Palin. Others stay up late playing video games in their parents' basements, with no other meaning or purpose in life.

I'll tell you folks, the dreams of many are dissipating before their very eyes, so no dirty deed is deemed to be too callous or underhanded. No amount of lies and deceits have been able to sway decent people from realizing that Obama is just another corrupt Chicago politician that has duped the naive masses into believing he is the only agent of change, worth considering.

I submit that he is an agent of change, but not the kind of change he claims to promote. The only change he is successfully selling is "changing his positions".

Take a look at
this list of flip-flops Obama has performed during this campaign. See what you think about this and wonder with me in amazement, how anyone can truly believe the MSM is objective in this Presidential race. If they were, they'd be looking long and hard at this list and pressuring him for some answers.

Even more amazingly, after all of this positive coverage from elitist media organizations, all of this demonization of the McCain-Palin ticket, and all of the Obama campaign's dirty tricks, he is still in danger of losing this election. Can we imagine how far behind he would be, if only the deck was stacked fairly?

Dude, if anyone wasn't convinced of how AWFUL a candidate this zero is, they must now understand. I mean, polls show that the Republicans are blamed for the current economic mess, and STILL, 0bama can't pull away. He should be up by double digits. Ted Kennedy would have been a better choice.
