New Poll Shows Barack Obama Tanking in Pennsylvania
The Los Angeles Times ^ | April 14, 2008 | Staff

Posted on 04/14/2008 11:55:34 AM PDT by Zechariah11

The first fresh poll results from Pennsylvania are in since Barack Obama's "bitter" comments about people in small towns exploded as a news story, and the findings could hardly be worse for the Democratic presidential contender.

this guy is simply a danger to our nation

His career has been so short, and so devoid of any executive experience of any kind, we just don't know what this guy would do. What we do know of him is that he's a hard-core leftie. If he were honest he'd admit he really agrees with most of Rev. Wright's spew.

The country dodged a bullet like this once before when Roosevelt dumped Wallace in favor of Truman. Wallace eventually converted to anti-communism, but in the critical period 1944-1952 he was strongly pro-Soviet and pro-Stalin.

We can't have a President who thinks the way to handle terrorism is throw the Iraqis overboard, throw the Israelis overboard and sit down to tea with the mullahs.

We will have a bitter Illinois politician who will be turning to Jeremiah Wright and blaming racism for his loss to Hillary.

Obama is finding out that saying the word “Change” over and over, can only carry you so far.

It's scary though, how far it took him, before he imploded.

Hard to fathom how a twenty year congregant to a black nazi cargo cult “church” could slip up like this.

It wasn't a slip. He was pandering to a flock of uber rich Gulfstream Lefties and didn't think his words were being recorded. He didn't think his words would leave that room but some Clinton mole managed to get inside with a tape recorder.

So, exactly how much does Mrs. Clinton have to win by from here on out to win this thing? 20 Points in PA sounds like a pretty good start.

Time to pull the plug on Operation Chaos! It is working too well!

The only person bitter in PA is Obama. His GOOF just gave Hillary the momentum she needs to take this to the convention.

Which is fine, it will further split the Dems.

Seems the racist is dying from a self inflected gun shot wound, so to speak. ;>)

Might he be clinging to his bible? If he is, might it be a bible given to him by racist Wright?

It’s probably safe to eat this much popcorn as long as I don’t add salt, right? ;>)

Obama is good with the prepared speech BUT when on the fly he stammers and fumbles a lot. He tends to be uncomfortable with questions that are not a part of his prepared speech and flowery garbty goop. I think as time goes on he is going to be shown as inept and completely unqualified to run as Presiden which everyone should have seen by now. He is a racist as is his wife. I heard Rush say today that when told by his campaign to tone it down she won’t saying her views are those of her husband so when the general election starts she could really do damage to his campaign.

Big media won't give small towns a voice but they don't take criticism lightly because, unlike the Obamas, Americans love America.

I live south of Pittsburgh. I will be going spring turkey hunting soon. I am bitter that the Clintons sold my children’s security to China.

I had to renew my license a while back and changed my registration to D for the primaries. I will vote for Obama.

I believe “Operation Chaos” is foolish. Hitlery is working every angle with millions of chinese dollars to take this election. Conservatives shouldn’t be helping her.

I don’t know who runs the ARG business, but I know that in this area Obama yard signs are 5 or 10 to 1 more than Hitlery.

All the state polls show that McCain does better against Obambi in battleground states like FL and OH.

Get the Clintons out now!!!!

He was never going to get the White House, but he COULD have stopped Hillary. Best of both worlds for us. He beats her, we beat him.

But noooo, thanks to Rush, we beat him for her and she beats us.

Brilliant. We shouldn’t be happy he is now losing cuz it means she wins.

Everything in it’s good time. We “Rushed” things and now there’s likely to be “hell to pay”.

Evidently he thought he was amongst friends!

Guess they didn't frisk and pat down for cell phones, cameras or tape recorders.

Interesting to see what “security” he has in place at the next coffee katch.

“I have shifted back and forth in this election. I am so incredibly uncomfortable with Obama that I think I feel more strongly that he not get to the White House than I feel even the Clintons.”

My Dad and I are experiencing the same feelings. I don’t even want to take a chance with Obama. Then, this stuff happens and I’m thinking maybe I should be hoping Obama wins the Dem nomination. It’s sooo confusing. LOL!

Barack is back explaining
what he really meant
about bitter Americans

well ain’t he one
he sat in that church
and listened for hours
the screeds from the Rev
screaming among the flowers

HATE, HATE, spewing from his mouth
keep them roiled up
sow seeds of envy
from the pulpit to the skies
just many more lies

And we ain’t heard the best
from Barack yet.

C’mon. No matter who wins, the Democrats lose 10% votes - hard-core Clintonistas won’t vote for Obama and Obama KoolAid drinkers won’t vote for Hillary!. With luck, we get a split Democrat party. What a wonderful world that would be!

I agree with you about the 40 state victory.

SnObama has no chance to win the general election now, if he ever did. This remark that was supposed to be kept secret is not ever going to go away.

Even Dick Morris admitted that Obama’s recent comments at San Francisco were not good at all, and really applauded Hillary’s newest ad taking Obama to task for his “Bitter” Speech. I am guessing that the Audacity of hope left the station and was replaced with the wife of the Audacity of Hope.

It is also funny because if you really think about it, now they are trying to get into a “who is more Conservative” contest which means that I actually agree with people like Hillary and other Democrats on one part of the campaign(saying that Conservative values like Hunting, going to a religious place of worship are being touted as great things) . Personally, though, Dick Morris is also right when he says that Hillary is as much of an elitist as Obama is but is much smarter politically. Maybe it has to do with her pandering.
