The Accusations Fly

The accusations have started to fly at top speed.

Obama's campaign accused Clinton's of 'darkening' Obama in an ad purposefully to play the race card.

What?

A few hours later, there was a recant. Ooops. Guess that wasn't true. But for a while, that circulated madly on the internet.

You know, she killed Vince Foster, too.

Such crap.

Clinton supporters are now being accused of being so anti-Obama, they would rather vote for McCain.

Oh, yeah. I'd rather have a nutcase who wants war so long my boys will be drafted to fight. All because I can't stand that nasty ol' Obama.

So, it's okay to disparage Clinton- it's politics after all- but not touch Obama because that means I'd rather vote for McCain?

President McCain means I'm looking for real estate in another country.

And for all those calculator carrying Obama supporters, how about counting Michigan and Florida? The "frontrunner" would be different and would you all consider dropping out of the race in order to save the democratic party?

I didn't think so.

Strap on your seatbelts. This is going to get really ugly.

I'm not necessarily an Obama supporter, but the point has to be raised that he wasn't even on the ticket in Michigan, so giving those delegates to Clinton (who was on the ticket) would be more than just a little unfair. It's a similar story in Florida, where Clinton put in so much face time there even though they weren't really supposed to. Florida and Michigan should re-vote, in my opinion, and Jeb Bush is supposedly working to get a re-vote in Florida. If Jeb is doing something that might help Hillary, something dirty is going down - the Re-pube-lick-cans are up to something.

Thanks for the post.

Ak. I'm an Obama supporter, and sure, I'll vote for Hillary if she wins the nomination. I like 'em both, I think both would be good presidents. I just feel so sad when I see Democrats starting to eat each other; when I see us attacking EACH OTHER, instead of John McCain. Isn't there some way we get beyond that? To disparage neither Hillary nor Barack, but to respect and honor both, and cast our votes on policy and personality, and our perception of what would best fill the needs of our country?

I find myself avoiding some blogs now that I used to enjoy -- the level of discussion has become so childish. Supporters on both sides are just grabbing onto any rumor that comes along. I commented on Americablog defending Clinton and was immediately accused of being a "paid Clinton operative"!

Yeah, and I'm writing from teh grassy knoll ....

Oh come one Sara, you know SHE didn't kill Vince...she delegated that out!

;)

MI is talking about holding a Caucus now to replace the "illegal" dem primary that we had back in January. Who knows how that crap will play out.

each side wants different things for mi and fl because different things will work in their favor... its so fucked up, howard dean is being an idiot and disinfranchising the voters there by acting like he wont have their votes count. yeah i get it, those were the rules, but those are stupid rules that need to be challenged so people's votes count. we didnt expect this election to pan out this way, did we?

americablog, dailykos, and huffington post are havens for insane, venom filled obama fans and clinton haters. sometimes clinton supporters or neutrals chime in and they get torn a new one by these lunatics. these websites are losing their minds, grabbing onto petty attack stories (like the skin darkening one, which is beyond ridiculous) and the mainstream media grabs onto shit that starts on blogs, shit that matt drudge brings up (the africa photo), and its out of control.

i'm wondering when these obama folks will run out of steam.. probably after he gets trounced in pennsylvania... six weeks goes by mighty fast. shes up by 20pts there.

Thanks for the post Sara. I'm getting so tired of the Obama side saying that Hillary needs to drop out for the good of the party and that everything she does constitutes an attack on him. *sigh*

FL & MI need to revote, the DNC needs to pay for it since they're the ones that invalidated two states worth of voters. We're the Democrats, not the Republicans - WE count all our votes.

Take it to the convention if need be, let's just have it be fair, open and honest regardless of who the nominee is.

MI might caucus? Ugh. Bad. You know why Obama wins the caucuses? Because MEN go to caucuses. Women stay home with the kids. And low income people are probably working, so they can't go either. Caucuses are disenfranchising.

And Sara, I'm surprised. You just now figured out that women are held to a totally different standard than men in the same jobs??? Sadly, everything that my mom and her friends worked for in the 60s and 70s seems to have just gone right out the door....
