Why cant he just come on air one of the other hundred some odd hours of the week to push his propaganda?


Its not like he isnt on the tv and pasted all over the news outlets all day every day as it is. The shills cant even shut up and let us enjoy a game that will help take all of our already stressed and troubled minds away from the a$$reaming that we are all taking at the hands of our elected "leadership", no they have to interrupt that too.


Thanks Barak for strong arming us into listening....we must not have heard you the first 20,000 times.

...Barack Hussein Obama? (Please note I do not intend any racism, partisanship or other beastliness by that, it just popped in my head and I thought it was amusing. So, seriously...)

The Obama phenomenon is one of entrancing iconography. Senator Obama is, I'm told, an extraordinary public speaker who engages his audience and sends tingles up people's legs. The last debate would have been his last opportunity to hypnotise the nation so this half hour, 6 days before voting, and before a widely watched sporting event is a genius political move for someone who knows his strengths and has the money to do it.

Baseball gets fewer people watching then Football and Basketball and Racing. It's not the American past time. It's more like "I have some steroids, he's a baseball player, I guess I'll get one more mortgage payment." More people watch American Idol then baseball. American Idol is more of the American Past Time then baseball.


Um...if you think baseball players are the only ones using steroids you're in a dream world.

I love your reasoning.

People watch American Idol more than baseball.
Therefore, American Idol is America's Past time more so than baseball.

And the mortgage payment quote.....your American Idol...which is "America's pastime" in your eyes....do you think the judges have one tiny house in suburbia? Do you think they are making 30,000/40,000 a year? Come on!!!!!

I don't think you even know what you are defending in this post to be honest.

This is an issue? What if there was a rain deley. Same result. That would probably be Obama's fault as well. Lighten up people. It's not like it was the Superbowl.

Lol...yeah the super bowl would be different story. I don't think he could bump the super bowl anyway...the hosting network would lose alot of money in advertising...Obama would have to pay out the arse for that...but then again...he's got plenty of money to throw around.

It's probably going to be one of the lowest rated world series ever anyway if the "Rays" get in.

Makes ya' sick to your stomach, doesn't it?

All hail the 'dear leader'.

Let's have children sing him love songs in school.

Let's have the entire country put on hold for 30 minutes while we listen with anticipation to his words of wisdom about how he's going to heal the very planet we live on.

he's just a freak'n politician running for POTUS

That's how it starts folks, first you affect America's pasttime and everything else follows.

This guy is really serious about change for America but he is the only one that plans to benefit and this is solid proof of it.
This this is just a pre-cursor and folks are already angry.
What's next, the hot dog? ..how ironic would that be?

Somebody keep this guy away from my apple pie.

Ummm Yeah, who is this 30-minute paid advertisement suppose to benefit? McCain? Just because Mccain's campaign fund is just short of broke doesn't mean that Obama shouldn't continue the campaign all the way up to the time the polls close on Nov. 4th.

Don't like it? Sorry! Choose your candidate more wisely next time.

Why not do it a day before or after?
Because this was deliberately done to prove a point.
It's nothing more than symbolic and it's a slam on the American people.
Just like his 3:00 AM VP txt msg was a slam on Hillary.

Read between the lines if you can, that's how this guy operates.

I would think that hearing what a presidential candidate has to say on issues that might affect us all would be a tad bit more important that a few minutes delay of a baseball game.

Just my 2 cents.

Funny!


I haven't seen a larger group of crybabies for quite a while. I hate baseball. I hate sports, in fact. But what are the sportos actually losing if they know a week ahead of time that the start time is going to be delayed by a few minutes?


I can't believe this is actually an issue with some people... :shk:

I'm glad it's going to be on FOX because I don't get the other channels. This means I'll get to see it!

I can't wait till the election is over. This brings out the worst in people. I almost don't care who wins. Almost...

Oh, he would definately not be able to bump the superbowl.

Heads would roll I'm telling you. It was bad enough when they had N'SYNC, Britney Spears, and Aerosmith during the halftime show, that was 30 minutes of my life I want back.

I really don't care too terribly much that the game is getting delayed, but the fact that it's a politician taking more time to spew forth garbage is what really bothers me. I mean come on guys, what is the purpose of running the ad? Seriously?

As I understand it, he is not delaying the game....MLB has decided to delay the game...Obama never asked them to...


And Obama can decline, did he?

"Not only is Obama putting politics before principle, he’s putting it before our national pastime.”

Oh give me a break, someone slap this guy for being a moron. The real tragedy is the state of our political rhetoric if this is any indication. Are we this stupid?

Just more fake outrage and hatred for a black man. Get over it. He's black, liberal, and won't bow to the oil companies or to the bank companies. Especially since his campaign isn't ran by lobbyists for the Lehman Brothers, unlike McCain who has a lobbyist running every part of his campaign.

Obama takes heat for delaying World Series game


politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com

(CNN) – The Republican National Committee took aim at Barack Obama Wednesday over the Illinois senator's half-hour ad buy that will delay the start of a World Series game by 18 minutes.

"It’s unfortunate that the World Series’ first pitch is being delayed for Obama’s political pitch," RNC spokesman Alex Conant said. "Not only is Obama putting politics before principle, he’s putting it before our national pastime.”
(visit the link for the full news article)



McCain's motorcade held me up about 15 minutes while driving home from work a few weeks ago in Kansas City.

Not only is McCain putting politics before principle, he's putting it before my daily pastime of commuting home.

Bastard.

Florida's going? I forgot they even had a team


I've talked about this already, and Gamer, I don't know if you're on about me or someone else...but. I have nothing against color, I am pissed simply because we have to drag more ridiculous lies of politics to overlap something that, at least in my perspective, is innocent.

So, now instead of watching my fixed baseball game on TV, I have to watch a liar, spout of more lies. Sorry, all politicians are liars, and not a damn one of them really cares about you (there are a few), but most don't. Both Obama and McCain are in the majority of the two mentioned, they don't care.
