Obama Unable to Affect Change Even With the Media Courting Him

--This ought to wake up the DNC. After spending hoards of money (perhaps our money) on his staged world tour where Obama pretended to be the President of the United States of America ~ he has not affected the polls with the same dramatic affect.

Now, I have to scratch my head here. Anyone who has been paying attention to the primary election saw that Hillary won the college electoral votes hands-down. This was the writing on the wall and the DNC chose to ignore it. Hillary can easily win the general election.

I predict this week is the week, the DNC has a change of heart.

Take a look

WASHINGTON -- Even as his turn on the global stage hit an emotional peak Thursday with a speech before a cheering crowd of more than 200,000 in Germany, Barack Obama faced new evidence of stubborn election challenges back home.

Fresh polls show that he has been unable to convert weeks of extensive media coverage into a widened lead. And some prominent Democrats whose support could boost his campaign are still not enthusiastic about his candidacy.

Correction: It now appears to be well established that the crowed was not 200,000, but more like 20,000.

I just received an invitation to the DNC. This is part of what it says:"One month from today, more than 75,000 Americans will join Barack Obama at the first truly open Democratic National Convention in a generation.

If you make a donation in any amount before midnight this Thursday, July 31st, you could join Barack backstage before he accepts the Democratic nomination.

Watch this short video invitation from Barack and make a donation of $5 or more today"

Can you believe it? they call it an "Open convention"?
How arrogant! Presumptuous!

Obama isn't as "popular" as he thinks he is...and, the nerve/gall of the DNC to want a "donation" to meet Obama...I've read it all now...I still think that anything is possible..we can hope for it...

Obama actually lost some ground in key swing states like Minnesota and Colorado for this silly trip.

It wasn't even a crowd there to see him...they were already there for a concert and beer and his people bartered for him to appear while there was such a good crowd...what a act..it's like going to one of the sitcoms or the Oprah show and the applaud lites go off and on when you are suppose to laugh or gasp. It's a set up.It's all for the tv..and to be honest. I do not watch any of these biased news channels anymore.. I have gone back to reading..that entire world tour he made was embarassing..he acted like he WAS THE PRESIDENT....and he looked like an idot when he saubtered off that airplane with his cool shades on and chewing gum...what class.

Even I'd show up for free beer and pizza if Obama was there, or if he wasn't.

Sorry about the mis-spellings..my mind is going faster than I type or vice versa...it was suppose to say, 'an act'..and sauntered off the airplane...I was waiting for him to do the one finger hold the jacket over his shoulder which he is famous for...

One thing I think Americans are forgetting! Many people around the world LOVE America! and when we hurt, they hurt! I realize that many of those who have not been able to crawl into our pockets as deep as they would like to, or are all ready in our pockers and wanting more, sure they are NEVER going to be our friends. But I believe that if John McCain had gone to Germany he would have received the same care, they WANT are concerned and want to see us do well, we after all are the Land of the Free and the very place that people all over the world do whatever they can to get here. So, as far as Obama being loved and respected by people all over the world, give me a break, it is the AMERICAN that is being respected and cared about and they BELIEVE that he is representing US. Maybe he is and maybe he is representing himself and whatever it IS that he believes in, for me, I do NOT believe that he has done enough to show AMERICANS that he has truly EARNED the right to represent ALL of us??

to the commenter above that says we should not compromise our values by voting for McCain. I don't agree.

Not all of us have the same values.

I value this country BEFORE my former party.

Writing Hillary's name is not going to do anything but MAYBE go to Obama.

People who are republicans are not evil or bad. They have their own values. yes, Bush really did a bang up job destroying their reputation. I always saw them as mean and uncaring.

However, I see Obama supporters as severely mean, self righteous and act superior at every turn.

My values don't support that attitude. My values support a country that is safe to live in.

So please try not to tell people what to do at the voting booth.

Maybe support them in getting clear on their values - not your values.

On another note,

I am hosting a PUMA party in LA this weekend.

If you want a PUMA party in SFO, create one right away. No time to waste.

oh and to comment about the berlin event. What a joke. My german friend sent me an email today stating that they hold concerts like this every year throughout the summer so those people were not actually there for Obama.
They were there because its what they do every year.

Plus, as I understand it, Berlin had 2 solid weeks of rain so by the time the Obama event rolled around the sun came out and people were anxious to get outside and enjoy their summer concerts.

But the media didn't tell us that.

You are wrong. You also lack any understanding of how a democracy works.

When the official candidates do not represent your views, you should write the name (of an alternate candidate) on the ballot. What does such an act accomplish?

Look at Ross Perot in the 1992 election. A vote for him was not a waste. The large number of votes for him told politicians that many Americans want fiscal conservatism. Perot championed fiscal conservatism.

The politicians listened. They limited federal spending during the ensuing 8 years. The result was a budget surplus.

Supposed that the potential voters for Ross Perot had listened to fools like the one who wrote the above quoted text. Then no one would have voted for him. After all, he could not win the election. The politicians in office would then never have realized that a large voting block (like the one that supported Perot) supported fiscal conservatism. The politicians would then have avoided it.

I agree with RockinRobin 100%. I will not vote for Mr. Obama because he is a weak candidate from the Democratic party (which I used to agree with its policy. We all know that Mr. Obama did not get the majority of the vote during the primary season. Hillary got more votes but she was dumped by the tactics of the current DNC.
