It is not over until it is over – fat lady and all that…
CNN asks: Is the White House battle over already?
I, for one, have to keep repeating this over and over again – and I am sure, for some odd reason the press and media don’t – you HAVE to vote to get an Obama presidency.
That is the only way that you will get it. It matters zero – nada, ziltch what the polls say. They could have Obama up by 90 points – it means nothing!
John McCain and his campaign is vile at the moment – I can see why, they feel that telling lies and making baseless accusations are working – but when you look at the bigger picture it shows that they are not. Yet McCain’s camp keep telling him that things are fine and that with all the negative campaigning they will win. There is only one section of the American society that can make the difference – and that is those who want to support Obama as president is those who must, above all, go to the polls and vote.
God bless John King and his electronic map – but even that is meaningless. It can show certain things but that is it.
Go vote and prove the pundits wrong – go vote and get America back to where it should be, go vote and vote for Barack Obama as president! With more endorsements coming in – some that you would never have thought would ever happen and if the rumours are correct that Colin Powell will be endorsing him, too – it is looking good. The Chicago Tribune has endorsed Obama.
In recent weeks it has been easy to lose sight of this history in the making. Americans are focused on the greatest threat to the world economic system in 80 years. They feel a personal vulnerability the likes of which they haven’t experienced since Sept. 11, 2001. It’s a different kind of vulnerability. Unlike Sept. 11, the economic threat hasn’t forged a common bond in this nation. It has fed anger, fear and mistrust.
On Nov. 4 we’re going to elect a president to lead us through a perilous time and restore in us a common sense of national purpose.
The strongest candidate to do that is Sen. Barack Obama. The Tribune is proud to endorse him today for president of the United States.
That is AWESOME!
The LA Times, too.
We need a leader who demonstrates thoughtful calm and grace under pressure, one not prone to volatile gesture or capricious pronouncement. We need a leader well-grounded in the intellectual and legal foundations of American freedom. Yet we ask that the same person also possess the spark and passion to inspire the best within us: creativity, generosity and a fierce defense of justice and liberty.
The Times without hesitation endorses Barack Obama for president.
All Obama supporters should sent a vote of thanks to them for that endorsement!
But still – and I cannot emphasise this enough – it is your endorsement in the ballot box that counts!
