McCain and Obama in a statistical dead heat

From Newsweek
"A month after emerging victorious from the bruising Democratic nominating contest, some of Barack Obama's glow may be fading. In the latest NEWSWEEK Poll, the Illinois senator leads Republican nominee John McCain by just 3 percentage points, 44 percent to 41 percent. The statistical dead heat is a marked change from last month's NEWSWEEK Poll, where Obama led McCain by 15 points, 51 percent to 36 percent."

Let's all keep taking action every day to make sure Obama's numbers keep dropping. Maybe if they drop low enough and stay low, the SD's will see the light before it's not too late. Meanwhile, let's do all we can to help turn that light on for them!

I wouldn't really trust Newsweek's polls, but overall it does appear that Obama may have peaked way too early. I guess that's just what happens when you're an empty suit.

To poster #2, let's hope he peaked too early. It does seem like it would be hard to sustain that level of adoration for months on end. But, we have a concrete deadline to meet which is the convention. If he hangs in long enough to make it through that, we're finished. So we have to work every single day to do something to advocate for Hillary.

Senator Barack Obama is a high-ranking government official, elected by the people of Illinois, the Land of Lincoln. Senator Obama swore to represent the citizens and uphold the ideals of his home state when he took office. Senator Obama failed to do his fundamental duties when he was confronted by a persuasive and influential bigot in his place of worship.

For 20 years, Senator Obama had the authority and opportunity to confront Reverend Jeremiah Wright's racist antics. And Senator Obama did little or nothing to stop Jeremiah Wright's outrageous sermons and lies about the US government. The government that Senator Obama committed to protect and serve. Senator Obama's inaction allowed Jeremiah Wright to continue on and on spewing divisive messages and lies for years uninterrupted.

When Senator Obama's judgment was put to the test, Senator Obama simply failed to uphold the principles of his home state. Senator Obama failed to represent his constituents in a big way.

To make matters worse, Senator Obama showed his highest respect and regard for Jeremiah Wright by immortalizing his twisted mentor in his writings and bestselling book. Senator Obama's audacity is unbelievable!

Senator Obama showed no courage, no backbone, to stand up to a bully in a pulpit. And now he wants to bring the same weak leadership to the White House as president and as Commander-in-Chief of the US Armed Forces. Shame on Senator Barack Obama!

If Senator Obama appears to be a perfect candidate, it is simply because he has not done much He has not taken meaningful stance on many important issues. He claims voting against the Iraq war as a sound accomplishment. Senator Obama simply lived up to his extreme, left-wing, anti-any-conflict sentiments. How convenient. Senator Obama could not stop Reverend Jeremiah how could he possibly go up against Osama or Saddam Hussein?

Albert Einstein said "The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing."

Senator Obama clings to individuals who held extreme, radical and even terrorist views for the most part of his adult life. If Senator Barack Obama is the ideal Commander-in-Chief in the 21st century, GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Long before the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s, men and women of all colors fought and died sided by side for the cause. Black Americans helped shape the United States since the founding of our republic. Great men and women like Frederick Douglas, George Washington Carver, MLK, Thurgood Marshall, Colin Powell, Ronald McNair and Condee Rice all served our country proudly in their own special ways.

Since the birth of our nation, the United States has done more to advance the cause of mankind and civil rights than any nation on earth. And Americans will continue the legacy of the brave men and women who preserved our way of life well into the future. Senator Obama is a beneficiary of the success and steel resolve of the American people.

Americans don't need Senator Obama's lofty speeches. Liberty and the sacrifices of those who came before us are our inspiration.

Martin Luther King had a dream that some day the future leaders of America will be judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. Courage, integrity, loyalty, wealth of experience and sense of duty to this country are important qualities, too.

Of all the respectable people in America, Senator Obama chose to idolize a flaming racist bigot Jeremiah Wright. Some judgment, Senator Obama. It is safe to say this is not exactly what the civil rights movement and the those who struggled for the cause had in mind.

I don't believe Senator John McCain is perfect either. The man has been a public servant all of his life. He accomplished so much. People will find some of his achievements agreeable and some disagreeable. His decisions, political positions, proposals, victories and failures are available for any interested voters to see. There is enough material out there for the Americans to really size him up and make informed decision if he is up to the task.

I'm supporting John McCain because more than any member of senate, he truly made valiant efforts to work on both sides of the aisle. Much to the disappointment of his party bosses. John McCain really put country first before party. Don't take my word for it. That is how he is ragarded by the leading members of the Democratic and Republican Parties. John McCain is a meverick.

Oridinary citizens are quietly drawn to that complex, boundless and timeless idealism. John McCain has a natural toughness about him. It's real and sincere. I can only hope to be as strong, as determined and as fiery as John McCain when I get to his age.

Many great leaders and commanders the world has ever known reached their finest moments in their personal and professional life well into their 60 and 70 years of age. Douglas McArthur, FDR, Ronald Reagan and Winston Churchill are among the legendary figures. Experience cannot be taught nor rushed. John McCain's golden age makes him the ideal Commander-in-Chief in these difficult times.

Americans survived greater challenges in our brief history. We won a revolution. We overcame the enormous toll and sorrow of civil war. We outlasted the great depression. We turned night time into day with the invention of the light bulb. We recorded the sound of music. We enabled long distance communication with the telephone. We set foot on the moon.

The people of the United States, held together by a common language and belief in our constitution, elevated mankind to great heights. Contrary to Senator Obama's bleak outlook and what he would have you believe, the American people will get through this economic down turn better than ever.

The rugged American spirit is alive and well in all of us. If the past is any indication of the future, Americans will continue to blaze new trail. Americans don't need Senator Obama's big government handout and empty promises.

John McCain will lead our nation not just in words, but above all, in action.
