Morning Break....

Back Together......

Barack and Hillary joining up for a joint appearance next week.

Hillary Clinton will join Barack Obama for a joint appearance in Washington next week to persuade her donors to begin giving to the Democrats' nominee, the Daily News has learned.

It's the first known plan to bring together the victor and vanquished from the Democrat primary race and put their pledges of unity for the fall campaign into action.


Reintroducing Michelle

Barack and Michelle Obama is on the cover of US Magazine. A launch of reintroducing Barack, but moreso, Michelle to the general public.

A vicious internet smear is now assaulting Michelle Obama. We already know about Barack, but now it is Michelle. Which is why it is important for us to correct any smears by pointing folks in the correct direction. "Fight the Smears".

Conservative columnists accuse her of being unpatriotic and say she simmers with undigested racial anger. A blogger who supported Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton circulates unfounded claims that Mrs. Obama gave an accusatory speech in her church about the sins of “whitey.” Mrs. Obama shakes her head.

“You are amazed sometimes at how deep the lies can be,” she says in an interview. Referring to a character in a 1970s sitcom, she adds: “I mean, ‘whitey’? That’s something that George Jefferson would say. Anyone who says that doesn’t know me. They don’t know the life I’ve lived. They don’t know anything about me.”

Now her husband’s presidential campaign is giving her image a subtle makeover, with a new speech in the works to emphasize her humble roots and a tough new chief of staff. On Wednesday, Mrs. Obama will do a guest turn on “The View,” the daytime talk show on ABC, with an eye toward softening her reputation.

Michelle is referring to the awful 'whitey' smear thanks to Larry Johnson, that is being passed along on the internet, but no tape exists and all these people know it. The rundown on this smear, here.

My take on this, I am glad, AGAIN, that the Obama Campaign is taking these smears seriously. I have been out in the field and it is INCREDIBLE what people believe that comes in the inbox of their email. This takes up a lot of time to explain and debunk these smears. Now, as the canvass season is upon us, I will just make some copies of the information of the website and give it to people who ask questions about this.

Always remember John McCain has A LOT in his closet, still undisclosed including calling his wife the "C" word. And yes, that is true, it is documented, and it was WITNESSED by people who saw him and heard him call his wife that. Will Cindy McCain the 100M Beer Queen be a target?
The working-class credentials of McCain, 71, the son and grandson of Navy admirals, are also thin. McCain's wife, Cindy, who inherited Anheuser-Busch Cos. distributor Hensley & Co., is worth about $100 million.

Not from the Obama Campaign, but as this campaign is unwinding expect some negative emails coming to you SOON.

Make no mistake about this, it will get WORSE before BETTER. When you are the GOP and have a piss-poor record of leadership in this country, what else can you do? Go negative and attack character.

We all have a responsibility to debunk this crap, and debunk it we must.

p.s. Michelle is on 'The View'


New Polls and Obama is up in Florida, Pennsylvania and Ohio

Quinnipiac Poll was released this morning and has Obama up in Florida 47-43 over McCain.

Gets better, Obama 48, McCain 42 in Ohio

And Obama 52, McCain 40 in Pennsylvania!!!

Yes, this reads great, but remember this is early and the fall has not hit yet. Expect serious negative campaigning from the GOP and expect us to work like crazy this summer and fall.

But am I smiling? Yes. But only for a minute. Read the poll, here.

Also, Obama ahead 47, McCain 42 in Reuters Poll.


Bush echos McCain for drilling off shore.

President Bush plans to make a renewed push Wednesday to get Congress to end a long-standing ban on offshore oil and gas drilling, echoing a call by GOP presidential candidate John McCain.

Congressional Democrats have opposed lifting the prohibitions on energy development on nearly all federal Outer Continental Shelf waters for more than a quarter-century, including waters along both the East and West coasts.


Cindy McCain, we know you as the 100M Beer Queen, yet you claim to baking cookies?? Please we know that you don't bake your own cookies, yet alone even have recipes for any. But here we go again, 'recipegate' another lifting of recipes to call it 'your own'. Read it here.


Obama Expresses Disappointment in McCain's Silence on Wife Attacks, see video here.


DNC calls for investigating McCain for Election Law Violations


Obama on Solis-Doyle
"Patti Solis Doyle I think is a terrific experienced campaign hand. She's from Chicago. Her brother and I organized on the southeast side of Chicago when I first moved to Chicago as a community organizer, so I've known the family for a very long time. I think that she will bring not only a set of skills that we're gonna need as we put our ticket together but shes going to be a terrific adviser and offer insight and judgment that will help us."

Missed Evening
