Dem strategists see landslide in the making

Saw this on DRUDGE under the heading
DEMS THINK ONLY TERRORIST ATTACK COULD PRECLUDE OBAMA LANDSLIDE...


This has been bantered around a number of conspiracy sites for several years . . . a 'false flag' attack, martial law, the suspension of elections and all that jazz.

This is the first time I've seen it even close to being mentioned in the MSM.

A tad scary?

A tad scary? Yes.

I've already spent an obscene amount of money to prepare for an Obama/Biden Assault Weapons Ban and I still have a ways to go and a lot to do. If he's elected the price of everything will go up immediately after the election and continue to rise right through to the passing of the ban.

There goes my savings


What an s.o.b. he is. One damn issue and he can't just let it go.

Personally, id like to set them at the bottom of a mountain, set some charges, and let them be a part of the landslide.

The People will speak, one way or the other. I will accept their decision. I will not, however, accept the decision being taken away by "emergency enactments" or "special circumstances". The right wing thinks the "left" are a bunch of incense-sniffing hippies that don't know which end of the tube the round comes out of. They are so, so very wrong about that!

Wow lots of love on this thread. I would agree with the above if you would throw all the Republicans in that pile too. Lets get rid of all of them. I dont know what you guys expected Obama is the chosen on by the powers. You really think its a coincidence hes related to Cheney? The fact is he is going to come in like FDR did and institute HUGE government and the people will love him for it just like they do FDR. What the sheeple dont realize is this is one of the final steps towards total slavery. Ill be honest with you though Im sure if McCain did win we would still get the same results. Both parties have been bought and paid for.

People actually loving their President, instead of being alternately disgusted and amuzed by him, like they are by George W Bush? What a novel concept!

Please comment on this: what was the evil that FDR did for this country? Or, did he do good?

For all I care, America can use a politician of his caliber. Not sure if Obama is one, time will show. But I wouldn't reject him just by rasing specter of FDR as an evil entity.

I can only hope and pray that Obama will be as good as president as FDR. FDR IMO was the greatest president of the 20th century, and hopefully Obama will be the FDR of the 21st. You may not like Obama, but you NEED him, whether you realize it yet or not.

Uhm, FDR created social security which is set to bankrupt the U.S. Yeah he was so great....I do believe that that Democrats will crush the Republicans, John McCain's campaign has done a horrible job, they are relying on the old Karl Rove tactics, but that's not going to work against Obama...they need a new strategy....frankly I hope their is a computer error that makes those of us who wrote in count more so. Democracy is great if you have a choice...the past 2 elections we have had no choice.

The republicans could have won with Ron Paul. But no they put some
ancient dude up there with tumors in his neck. Its almost like they
didnt want to win.

I'm not at all surprised by the article. When you start messing with people's livelihoods, retirement accounts and homes, they start running scared. This is precisely what's playing out at the moment.

Unfortunately for McCain, he's the poster boy for all things wrong with our current economic situation. Also, his role in the whole savings and loan scandal a few years back isn't helping him either.

Short of a major, catastrophic event I don't see the GOP pulling through on this election. The Democrats have this one hands down.

Yes he was. It's easy for you to look back at this era and ignore the hardships the Americans had to endure due to economic collapse -- FDR did the right thing to offset that. I've known a few people who had been gainfully employed but lost their jobs for some period of time for one reason or another, and man, they did survive by grace of social security, and moved on to new jobs.

As to the bankruptcy of the United States, look at the borrowing the Bush administration did... Stupidity of the W and his clique is not FDR's fault.

FDR has got to be one of the wort presidents in history.

He confiscated gold and banned it's ownership, he pulled us off the gold standard (the only thing keeping inflation in check), he and his advisers thought that over-production had caused the Depression so they created artificial shortages of goods and forced prices ever higher, the National Industrial Recovery Act nationalized much of industry under all sorts of shady deals to keep prices high even when production returned to normal. Roosevelt thought that what would get us out of the Depression was high labor cost, low employment, cartel controlled business and higher prices on all goods.

FDR ensured the market would never correct itself thereby prolonging the misery. I'd argue the ill affects are still with our economy today and are now only compounded by a repeat of the same mistakes. He did then exactly what Bush and McCain and Obama are doing now.

It's so funny to bash Bush for doing this and in the same breath praise FDR for doing the same thing.

Oh, but that's because the Shrub is such a goddamn hypocrite and FDR was not.

To preach market and stuff and then go pinko socialist is a pretty disgusting thing for neocons to do. They suck.

That is also unless 30% of the white voters hold to the poll that stated under no circumstances will they vote for a black man for president. And the 40% of offended Hillary vote that will not vote for Obama at all. And if you take into account the people who change their mind at the voting booth. It's not going to happen for Obama no matter what the polls say today. Terrorist attack or some conflict happening somewhere will only add to the doubts about Obama that are already beginning to show. I think there is a lot more in the equasion.

Neo-cons by the very definition are more socialist than conservative. When W was running for his first election he lied like crazy about liberty and non-interventionism and the free market. He hasn't been conservative going on 7 years now. He's been pretty open about his BS policies.

Not that I'm defending him. I'm just pointing out that with him the "say one thing - do another" complaint has been dead a long time. To make the argument of inconsistency you'd have to connect who he is today with who he told us he was 8 years ago. That's legitimate but a stretch. Who he is today is exactly who he was about 7 years ago. A socialist, nation-building neo-con.

I have to add:

You dont care about what Bush and FDR have done to extend the ruination of America apparently. You still say FDR was great and Bush not for doing the same thing. Is it really just consistency you care about? If I said once elected I's be a real nice guy but then turned out to be some Nazi screwball and started killing Jews you'd be upset but if I promised to kill Jews all along you'd be cool with it? What if I got elected promising Jew death but then didnt hurt any? Would the inconsistency upset you?

To me it sounds as if they are nervous that Obama will lose. And they are just covering their a$$ to cry 'Fraud' Diebold' 'Racism' if McCain wins, It appears to be an attempt to get voters for McCain/Palin disenfranchised so they don't so up to the polls.

If Obama is doing so well.......why announce it? Why not just wait for the results? Obviously they don't think they have any thing to worry about..........Sounds like dirty politics at best.
