Obama hits 50% in Gallup Tracking Poll, Post Convention.

Obama leads 50-44% over McCain.

Most resoundingly the economy and the financial crisis from Wall Street to Main Street are heavy on folks minds.

A couple of things for this tread.

First, the continuous McCain/Palin lies from its campaign and being caught blatantly on tv and print, the continuation of repeating these falsehoods are making many Americans question John McCain, Mr. Straight Talk.

The crumbling of Palin. After viewing the Charlie Gibson interviews, my conclusion is that Palin is an "empty skirt/dress". She came across as totally scripted, not in charge of the issues, did she even understand the issues and just CLUELESS. That Bush Doctrine question, killed her. Sure, the public may not know, but Palin SHOULD KNOW. That is the point. The American people's fascination of Palin is over.

The words that killed McCain on Monday, "the fundamentals of our economy are strong." KILLED HIM. How can anyone even THINK the economy is fundamentally sound when we, yes the taxpayers, have to bail out Wall Street, the banking industry, because of their irresponsibility with our money? And this is McCain, King of deregulation? No, the economy STINKS now and and that speak of McCain just may keep him out of the White House.

Folks are waking up. They don't care about the politics of personalities, they care about the politics of issues.

This is reflecting in the Gallup Poll and the Daily Kos/Research 2000 poll which have Obama 50% and moving.

Obama has held at least a small margin over McCain in each of the last four daily reports, generally coincident with the start of the Wall Street financial meltdown that began to dominate the news on Monday this past week. Separate Gallup consumer confidence tracking has shown that Americans' views of the economy deteriorated as the week progressed, and that Americans also began to express increased personal worry about their own finances. There is thus a reasonable inference that Obama's gains may, in part, be related to the way in which the public viewed his and McCain's response to the financial crisis. Friday's economic news was a bit more positive, with the announcement of a pending major U.S. government bailout for the country's economy, and the second day of significant increases in the Dow Jones Industrial Average and other stock market indices. It remains to be seen if this will affect Obama's lead in the days ahead.

Again, this is a tracking poll but one I am pointing out as POST-CONVENTION bumps and one treading in a positive upward swing for Obama.

Phil Gramm, the ex-Senator who pushed through deregulation, and called Americans hurt by this economy “whiners.”

Then there’s George Bush, whose disastrous policies McCain wants to continue.

They think the economy is fundamentally strong.

We know they’re fundamentally wrong.

Obama Evening Wrap UP...The race ads are a comin'!!!!

obama in las vegas, nevada


We are winding down, now the race stuff is emerging

McCain is losing, period. McCain/Palin have been found out as liars, Palin a bigger liar, McCain has lost his stature, McCain will do anything to win, the press have not been nice, the press have been REPORTING THE FACTUAL LIES of this campaign, Palin was ridiculous on ABC with Charlie Gibson, Palin's stances are extreme to Dick Cheney, in other words, the honeymoon is over.

Now, McCain's poll numbers are tumbling because he can not get a grip on the economy. He came out Monday, feebly and said this:

Now the McCain has an ad out trying to state that Obama is taking advice from former Fannie Mae head, Franklin Raines, 'on mortgage and housing policy.' Oh, and Raines is black.

But the thing is Raines has come out PUBLICLY and stated he has not worked for the Obama Campaign, nor has he advised the Obama Campaign on anything.

Raines said in the statement through the campaign, "I am not an advisor to Barack Obama, nor have I provided his campaign with advice on housing or economic matters."

Obama spokesman Bill Burton added an attack:

This is another flat-out lie from a dishonorable campaign that is increasingly incapable of telling the truth. Frank Raines has never advised Senator Obama about anything -- ever. And by the way, someone whose campaign manager and top adviser worked and lobbied for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac shouldn't be throwing stones from his seven glass houses.

Remember, I have always said and written, McCain will NOT WIN ON THE ISSUES. He loses and it is in the polling numbers. This is why all the kerfuffle on bullshit about lipstick on a pig, the banter of he said/he said, to totally take the electorate off message of ISSUES.

The economy is smack dab in the middle. McCain must deal with it, along with his RECORD on voting against deregulation that got us in the mess we are in now. No one can tell me that you are 100% sure that your bank won't CRASH, or your 401K will not vanish overnight. Remember, Enron? Remember, how all those employees lost their retirement, their lives? Not again, no more.

Get ready for the last 7 weeks to be a roller coaster. The GOP will try to steal it by hook or crook. But there are too many of us, fed the fuck up, to let this one get by us, again.

Get busy and get activated. WORK THIS CAMPAIGN. All you need is under "About Barack Obama."

Republicans, NOT THIS TIME.

p.s. GOP Planning "Minority Rally" starring, "George Allen" in Virginia


Voter TRICKS time, in Florida, Alert
A new pitch for John McCain's presidential campaign aimed at older Democratic voters is causing complaints by Democrats and concern by elections officials.

The piece, paid for by the Republican National Committee and authorized by McCain, tells voters it is seeking to double-check their "unconfirmed" party affiliations while asking for money. A letter signed by McCain tells the Democrats: "We have you registered as a Republican."

"I was a little bit shocked and a little bit surprised," said recipient Bill Smith, 81, of Tampa, who calls himself a lifelong Democrat and has been registered at his current address since 2000. The retired plant engineer is one of about a dozen senior citizens that Democratic Party leaders identified as recipients, all of them longtime Democrats.

The RNC declined to discuss the mailer, which Democrats said has landed in five counties: Duval, Hillsborough, Collier, Miami-Dade and Escambia. continue

John McCain and the Lying Game

Politics has always been lousy with blather and chicanery. But there are rules and traditions too. In the early weeks of the general-election campaign, a consensus has grown in the political community — a consensus that ranges from practitioners like Karl Rove to commentators like, well, me — that John McCain has allowed his campaign to slip the normal bounds of political propriety. The situation has gotten so intense that we in the media have slipped our normal rules as well. Usually when a candidate tells something less than the truth, we mince words. We use euphemisms like mendacity and inaccuracy ... or, as the Associated Press put it, "McCain's claims skirt facts." But increasing numbers of otherwise sober observers, even such august institutions as the New York Times editorial board, are calling John McCain a liar. You might well ask, What has McCain done to deserve this? What unwritten rules did he break? Are his transgressions of degree or of kind? continue

GOP Planning "Minority Rally" starring, "George Allen" in Virginia

All, I can say is, "Get the F*CK outta here!!!"

George Allen, THE RACIST, George Allen?

Are you kidding me?

Finally -- real minority outreach from the GOP. The Virginia Republicans have a big rally coming up this Saturday that's designed to reach out to minority voters in Fairfax County.

Guess who is one of the featured speakers?

George Allen. Yes, that George Allen.

Are you laughing now? This man who bombed his own campaign on his own "macaca moment"? The one who reveled and loved the noose and confederate flag in his own governor's office? The one who is so insensitive, sorry he is nothing but a racist? And now he has a good read on the minority community?

PAHLEEEZE....and give me the f*cking emphasis on the EAZE...
We checked in with the state GOP to ask if Allen is really an effective front-man for the party's efforts to win over minorities, given the "macaca" scandal.

The answer? Yes! "George Allen has an excellent record on issues of diversity, reaching out to people," Gerry Scimeca, communications director for the state party, told us. "His whole career, his whole life have been a testament to a guy who's treated people equally across racial lines, across every kind of line."

Are the republicans in that much of a scare or funk that they are dragging this racist asshole out to campaign?

Go ahead. His record speaks for itself. Instead, he actually SPOKE FOR HIMSELF.

Virginians don't be fooled.

New 'N Word' Woe For George Allen

The man is a racist. Nuff said.

Chuck Hagel, "Palin Experience is Insulting the American Citizen"


A republican, who is currently NOT running for re-election and critical of the Bush Administration, says what everyone on the blogs HAVE BEEN SAYING.

To prop Sarah Palin up as the next, um, Kissinger, Powell on foreign policy and national security is utterly a FANTASY.

This is her answer at her first townhall meeting, with Grandpa John having to clear or clean her statement up.

Asked for "specific skills" she could cite to rebut critics who question her grasp of international affairs, she replied, "I am prepared."

"I have that confidence. I have that readiness," Palin said. "And if you want specifics with specific policies or countries, you can go ahead and ask me. You can play 'stump the candidate' if you want to. But we are ready to serve."

GOP presidential nominee John McCain stepped in, pointing out that as governor of a state that is oil and gas plentiful, Palin was familiar with energy. She knows it to be "one of our great national security challenges," he said.

He also cited her nearly two years as commander of Alaska's National Guard. "I believe she is absolutely, totally qualified to address every challenge as the next vice president of the United States," McCain said.

Um, OK. A question of clarification was asked of the Republican Vice Presidential nominee and she says, "I have confidence. I have that readiness...." Sorry, that answer won't fly, and lord don't let the video out.

I think the cat is out of the bag about the McCain/Palin ticket. They were so ready to run on bullshit, nothing that they actually got stumped with the economic crisis happening right now. And no, their answers have been old, dated, and out of touch. This is why you now see the polling moving away from this ticket. Palin has been looked at, listened to, the final result not much there.

As for Senator Chuck Hagel, he says it brilliantly.
"She doesn't have any foreign policy credentials," Hagel said in an interview. "You get a passport for the first time in your life last year? I mean, I don't know what you can say. You can't say anything."

Palin was elected governor of Alaska in 2006 and before that was the mayor of a small town.

Democrats have raised questions about Palin since Sen. John McCain picked her as his vice presidential running mate. Most national Republican officeholders have rallied to Palin's candidacy.

Palin has cited the proximity of Alaska to Russia as evidence of her international experience.

Hagel scoffed at that notion.

"I think they ought to be just honest about it and stop the nonsense about, 'I look out my window and I see Russia and so therefore I know something about Russia,'" he said. "That kind of thing is insulting to the American people."

That sums it up.

The McCain/Palin Campaign thinks the American public is chumps, stupid. But they have something coming to them, we are not.

See, George W. Bush and Dick Cheney has scared the living "you know what" out of many in this country. The trust factor is not there. I mean, the American public is more cautious this time. They have been watching, reading and listening to these candidates, so eventually the lies do catch up to you. Makes the public question who are you, what will you do, and can we trust you at all? That is what is happening to the McCain/Palin Campaign.

I am sure more bullshit or propaganda bullshit will be thrown up there, but this time around I don't see the public falling for it.

McCain/Palin, insulting the public indeed.

Washington Mutual needs a bailout, too.

Well, the government bailed out AIG and Wall Street tumbled:

Wall Street plunged again Wednesday as anxieties about the financial system ran high after the government's bailout of insurer American International Group Inc. failed to restore investors' confidence in banking stocks. The Dow Jones industrial average lost about 450 points, giving it a shortfall of more than 800 so far this week.

As investors fled stocks, they sought the safety of hard assets and government debt, sending gold, oil and short-term Treasurys soaring.

The market was more unnerved than comforted by news that the Federal Reserve is giving a two-year, $85 billion loan to AIG in exchange for a nearly 80 percent stake in the company, which lost billions in the risky business of insuring against bond defaults. Wall Street had feared that the conglomerate, which has extensive ties to various financial services industries around the world, would follow the investment bank Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. into bankruptcy. However, the ramifications of the world's largest insurer going under likely would have far surpassed the demise of Lehman. continue

Merrill Lynch was bought for pennies by Bank of America and we all know that Lehman Brothers, a bank investment firm for over 100 years went bankrupt, now here comes WAMU, or Washington Mutual.

I have been harping on WAMU for a while. They are holding heavy bad mortgages on the books and now their stock is worth 2 bucks. Oh, if you have any money in WAMU, advice, FIND ANOTHER BANK.
The US Government has asked big banks, including HSBC, to put together a rescue buyout of Washington Mutual, the American lender, according to a report.

The banks involved include Wells Fargo, JPMorgan Chase and HSBC but the report in the New York Post said that no deal talks were being held between the banks and WaMu.

Shares in WaMu, which is America's largest savings and loan institution, have plunged by 49 per cent over the past month and 83 per cent this year. Its shares today fell by a further 10.17 per cent to $2.12.

The Government's attempt follows its rescue last night of American International Group (AIG), the troubled insurance group, and once one of America's biggest, for $85 billion.

WaMu's bank's non-performing assets - bad debts - jumped to 3.62 per cent in the second quarter, up from 2.87 per cent. It has been forced to put aside more than $8 billion to cover bad debts in its mortgage book.

Uncertainties about the make-up of the mortgage book is an obstacle to finding a buyer or buyers for WaMu, the paper said, quoting an unnamed source saying that there may only be a "minimum amount of value" in WaMu's loans business.

Notice that none of the banks are "jumping" to help WAMU. Why? They don't know what the books really are, if the paper that is presented is real or fake, as in money. And banks, as people, are uncertain about an established bank as Washington Mutual needing help. The question is how much help? And for the US Government to ask major banks "on the low" to help WAMU means that WAMU, is fucked up. Excuse the french, but it is what it is.

If you are a customer, find another BANK.

The importance of voter registration

The time is coming quick. The earliest date is October 4, 2008. I wrote a diary expanding on all 50 states. You can download the registration form and mail it to your local country office. It includes all absentee voting, military voting, citizens abroad voting, felon information, contact information for each state, early voting information for states that have it, etc.

It is worth a read and more imporantantly, worth you forwarding the information to voters that are moving to another state and voters you know that are not registered to vote.

We win this in November with VOTES. Period.

Obama Spanish Language TV Ad "Dos Caras", Video with Transcript

Airing in the swing states of NV, NM, and CO

"They want us to forget the insults we've put up with, the intolerance," the television ad's announcer says in Spanish as a picture of Rush Limbaugh appears onscreen with quotes of him saying, "Mexicans are stupid and unqualified" and "Shut your mouth or get out."

"They made us feel marginalized in a country we love so much," the ad continues. "John McCain and his Republican friends have two faces. One that says lies just to get our vote and another, even worse, that continues the failed policies of George Bush that put special interests ahead of working families."

The companion radio ad uses the same script as above and then continues:

"Don't forget that John McCain abandoned us rather than confront the leaders of the Republican Party. Many of us were born here, and others came to work and achieve a better life for their families -- not to commit crimes or drain the system like many of John McCain's friends claim. Let's not be fooled by political tricks from John McCain and the Republicans. Vote so they respect us. Vote for a change."

Known as Lynn Forester de Rothschild in the United States but Lady de Rothschild in the UK.

Girlfriend got the NERVE to state Obama is an elitist!!!!

Again, this goes back to what I stated. Hillary voters will NOT vote McCain because of the issues. This Ms. Thing got personal issues with Obama.

Remember Lynn Forester de Rothschild, the fantastically wealthy wife of an heir to England's most influential and storied banking dynasty? About a year ago, she was a Hillary Clinton supporter, and had this to say:

"I think if history is our guide, we've had stronger economies, more wealth creation, under Democratic presidents than we have under Republican presidents."

Now she's announcing her support for John McCain for president. Why not Obama? “Because frankly I don't like him,” she told CNN. And why would Forester (who is a voting American but lives at Ascott House, her husband Sir Evelyn Robert Adrian de Rothschild's country estate in Britain) not like the Illinois senator? "I feel like he has not given me reason to trust him," she said. “I feel like he is an elitist."

Can I say, bitcherella here? With a lump of (rolleyes) here?

Her statement in bold shows her true colors. Indicating wanting a Democratic president over a Republican president. Her own statement contradicts why she is endorsing McCain.

Can she take her ASSETS back to England? Also, can we kick her rich ASSETS out of the Democratic Party? We really don't give a mickey-fickey about her and good riddance to a spoiled, rich, aristocratic, YOU KNOW WHAT.

May a college student register and vote from his or her school address in Ohio?

Yes, a student may vote using his or her Ohio school residence address. However, the student may not also vote an absentee ballot where he or she last lived (e.g. with one or more parent or guardian). When a college student votes from his or her school address, the school residence is considered to be the place to which the student's habitation is fixed and to which, whenever the student is absent, the student intends to return, and is considered by the student to be his or her permanent residence at the time of voting.

Early voting in Texas

Early voting in person may be easier than you think. You don't have to stand in long lines on Election Day. Registered voters may vote early at a location convenient to them within their political subdivision. Early voting in person generally starts 17 days before each election and ends 4 days before each election. Early voting for the May uniform election date begins 12 days before the election and ends on the 4th day before the election. If you can drive or if you have a friend or relative who can drive you, you don't even have to get out of the car. Call ahead to notify the early voting clerk that you want to vote from your car. This procedure is called "curbside voting" and is available to any voter who has difficulty walking or standing for long periods. The election official will bring your ballot to your car outside the polling place. Curbside voting is available during early voting and on Election Day. State and Federal law requires all early and Election Day polling locations to be physically accessible to voters with disabilities. Call your election official for information on your particular voting sites.

Vote early in person (you don't need to vote in your precinct, you can cast your ballot at any early voting site in your county which is convenient to YOU) or vote early by mail (this is done by requesting an application for a ballot to be mailed to you or downloading an application form). Voting early in person is convenient and, unlike early voting by mail, you don't need an excuse.

Early Voting dates are October 20-October 31, 2008. Contact your county registrar for voting locations.

Voting by Mail

What are mail elections?
Mail elections are an alternative to polling place voting. Prior to each election a ballot is automatically mailed to every eligible registered voter to the address on record.

Why are elections conducted by mail?
Many Washington State voters had already requested to receive permanent absentee ballots at each election rather than go to an assigned polling place to vote on Election Day. In many counties, because of the low turnout at the polls on Election Day, it is not cost effective to continue to conduct poll site elections. Many voters enjoy the extra time to review the ballot before casting a vote that comes with voting by mail.

Which counties vote by mail?
37 of Washington's 39 counties vote by mail. King and Pierce Counties still maintain poll sites, but King County plans to switch to vote by mail elections in 2009.

As a registered voter, what do I have to do to vote by mail?
If you live in a county that conducts all elections by mail you will automatically receive a ballot. You will need to keep your residence and mailing addresses current with your County Auditor to ensure your ballot is mailed to the correct location.

If you live in a county that offers both absentee ballot voting and poll site voting, you'll need to request an absentee ballot from your County Auditor. You may choose to request an absentee ballot for a single election or to receive absentee ballots permanently.

When are the ballots mailed to the voters?
Washington State law requires ballots be mailed to voters at least 18 days prior to an election.
