The media has all but called it for Obama. You could wonder why we even bother with having the election at all since Obama is already the de facto winner. Well, we PUMAs have seen and heard this all before. During the dem primaries, most media outlets kept cheering Obama’s historic victory. The thing is, Hillary kept winning primaries even after they called it for Obama. She continued to win big states in huge numbers too.
You can’t believe the media in this election. They’re cheer-leading for Obama. They’re not impartial reporters; they’re biased and shaping the story they want to see become reality.
Take comfort in the example set during the dem primaries. Regardless of the media calling Obama the winner -even before the election has happened- people will make the final decision not the media.
People like me and you voted for Hillary despite everyone telling us Obama had already won it. We still voted our conscience. Others will too. This is not done by a long shot. Obama has not won it yet. No one knows exactly how this will break down until election day is over. In the remaining days, let’s keep calm and remember Obama has not won this despite what the media would like for you to believe.
Here’s an article from the Edmonton Sun that understands this too:
PREPARE FOR IRONY IN THE US ELECTION
Polls have piled up like falling autumn leaves informing American voters the election is practically over and only the matter of procedure remains for Sen. Barack Hussein Obama to be sworn in as the 44th president of the United States.
The mainstream media and the big establishment it represents have worked hard to generate the impression of inevitability on behalf of Obama for a year now.
But like the shoe that pinches, the awkward reality for media and the big establishment remains the uncertainty of the actual vote count. Any attentive student of human affairs will remain skeptical of those predicting the future with certainty.
The only thing certain about the 2008 election, as with previous ones, is its close finish and the vote from Middle America again will be decisive.
Middle America is the last redoubt of freedom, protective of the first two amendments to the U.S. constitution, and egalitarian while rejecting the equality of the socialist ant heap.
Here Americans instinctively understand the words Thucydides put in the mouth of Pericles, the great Athenian hero, “Happiness depends on being free, and freedom depends on being courageous.”
Middle America in this 2008 election has the face of Joe the Plumber alongside Sarah Palin. Joe the Plumber has become the everyman of American politics and with his simple question to Obama he unmasked the Democratic nominee’s hidden Marxian economic policy — from each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs — to “spread the wealth around.”
Middle America is the flyover country for the coastal left liberals. Here resides the vast silent majority that has witnessed for the past 40 years radical Americans such as the unrepentant terrorist and self-confessed anarcho-communist Bill Ayers trash their country. The New York Times on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001 quoted Ayers, an associate of Obama, saying “I don’t regret setting bombs. I feel we didn’t do enough.” Middle America on its part has voted for the Republican ticket in seven of the past 10 presidential elections.
Joe the Plumber representing Middle America will not vote for Obama and his far left liberal views. He understands without prompting Obama’s foreign policy is what the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan — the highly respected Democratic senator from New York and a great patriot — noted in referring to president Jimmy Carter’s foreign policy, “Unable to distinguish between our friends and our enemies, he has essentially adopted our enemies’ view of the world.”
Middle America watched the collapse of Soviet Communism in 1991 while extending the frontiers of freedom in distant lands.
It is far fetched and illogical to expect Middle America to deceive itself to vote a candidate into the White House whose worldview acknowledges at a minimum the validity of Karl Marx’s destructive ideology.
During primaries Democrats waged a contest between gender and race with race trumping gender, leaving a whole segment of Sen. Hillary Clinton’s supporters miffed. It is also Democrats and their media friends, in raising the spectre of racism in this election, who have projected their guilt on their opponents.
Hence, the culminating irony will be Democrats breaking ranks against their party ticket to put Sen. John McCain, the Republican candidate, over the top when the proverbial fat lady steps forth to sing.
