No, No, No – a thousand times NO!

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.

Fantastic news!

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!

    One thing to always bear in mind is to never underestimate the ignorance of the masses.

    Those silent types that don’t respond to questionnaires or polls, but somehow manage to reveal baffling degrees of stupidity when they cast their votes.

    So I’ll accept results after the elections… Not before šŸ˜‰

    I must say, though, this one will be scarier than 2004. I just hope for the best. That’s all.

    eskith – I agree! They must keep focused till the ball goes in the hole!
    But hopefully when, and not if, he wins, I think the challenge then for Obama will be HUGE!
    He has the expectations of not just America to live up to, but the rest of the world, in a way that I think no previous President has ever faced. As is obvious on all the blogs relating to the election, people are vitally engrossed in this election from all around the world. Obama is in a sense international – mother American, father Kenyan, half-sister Indonesian. And I think that the world is looking to him for inspiring leadership after the last Presidential debacle, and the recent economic turmoil has only added to that. So to all those Americans who don’t like him, I think Obama could significantly raise your status in the world – IF he does it right!
    Add to that, the bar is going to be that much higher for him, just because he would be the first African/American President. Many people will be watching EVERY little thing he does, ready to be that bit more judgemental.
    So, really, he has to be superman! He comes across as having the potential for that – I really hope we get the chance to see him do it! I’ll be cheering him on, just like I’m cheering on Americans to make the right choice now!

    I was happy to read about the endorsements, and perhaps I’m sleeping a little better at night knowing that Obama is up in the polls. Let’s keep in mind though that Republicans rallied voters in record numbers in the last election, when I thought that there was no possible way that anyone would want “W” for a second term, and look what happened with that! So yes, by all means, we Americans must get out there and VOTE. It is one of the only and perhaps best opportunities we have to weigh in on things that are decided in this country.

  5. leapsecond says:

    All these newspapers endorsing Obama just give the hardcore right-wingers justification for calling the media “liberally biased”.

    And, on the election being over, on fivethirtyeight the current projection is that Obama has a 94% chance of winning the election. I’d say it’s pretty much wrapped up.

    This may not mean much but I feel the need to express it anyway. I watched the new You-Tube video of McCain coming back from Vietnam with others. McCain has no scars. No bags under the eyes from not being allowed to sleep. McCain was treated as bad as he says he was. Even the feigned limp is telltale. But the most interesting thing about this video is that McCain salutes an officer. When you see that salute you see that there is absolutely nothing wrong with McCain’s right arm. Even a blind man could see this. McCain may have trouble with his arm but it happened after he came back home from Vietnam. Maybe from playing tennis or something.

    This made me realize a truth that people may not want to acknowledge. McCain did not stay in Vietnam because he was being noble. He stayed there because he did not want to return to a sick wife who he no longer loved and a father that he hated. He stayed there to escape responsibility. Nowadays it wouldn’t matter. But back then you didn’t leave your wife. McCain has played the sympathy card to the hilt. But that video erases all that. The American people should look at that video. They have been duped by McCain and I hope on November 4th they show him how they feel about it.

By all means, leave your 2 bobs worth
