Subject: Obama Hysteria
Regarding Ann in Philly and her post on Bartcop,
I'm Switching My Vote to Hillary."
In it she attributes to Obama that "...he
has also made it very clear that his supporters,
and his voters, will not work for or vote
for Senator Clinton should she win the nomination."
I have read Clinton supporters making this claim
before, but I have never seen any of them
provide the exact quotes where Obama specifically,
and clearly, as Ann claims, make this statement.
That's becuase they can't, because there is no
such statement. At least as far as I know.
If I'm wrong set me straight. But I doubt
In fact, supporters of both sides are guilty of
over-the-top accusations and outright
manufacturing of "facts" and quotes about the

for a demon?
Last - your final paragraph was perfect - and it's something we've never
Obama's expectations are sky f-ing high and nobody can live up
With no specifics given, he's become a vessel to store people's individual
When he fails to turn those hopes into concrete, tangible realities,
certainly turn on him like they turned on the Clintons and guess what
He's got nowhere to go but down and it's going to hurt when he crashes.
Remember, the opposite of love isn't hate, it's indifference.
The people who love him the most will be the most disappointed,
like I was when the most important site on the Internet turned whore.
Obama could end up leaving the troops in Iraq or amping up NAFTA, etc.
When he does, his choir could turn into an angry mob with torches.
It might end up making Hillary-hate look like a hippie lovefest by comparison.
