Never Forget the Media Bias in the 2008 democratic election against Hillary Clinton.

This is just a brief recap of the tip of the huge iceberg of media bias against Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton. Huffington Post basically assaulted the Clinton's on an almost a daily basis, and MSNBC, CNN, Time and Newsweek all chipped in as well.

Reason? Try the amount of media buys the Barack Obama side made. By spending double and triple what Hillary Clinton was able to spend in advertising, it appears that Barack Obama won the hearts and pocket books of the media.

Keith (I can't believe I used to like that guy) Olbermann, looked right into the camera and delivered one of the all time bodacious lies every committed by a "newscaster". Olbermann states that he NEVER advocated that Hillary Clinton get out of the race!

Yet here is the proof that Keith Olbermann did indeed want Hillary Clinton out of the 2008 democratic presidential race. There are earlier examples as well of Olbermann having a meltdown because Hillary Clinton wanted to stay in the race until the final primary was completed.
Back in January and early February of 2008, Dan Abrams floated the idea that the super delegates should not determine the outcome of the democratic race. Lol, it takes 88% less voters in a caucus contest to determine the delegates for the states that use caucuses.

So while Abrams is suggesting that super delegates should not determine the outcome of the democratic presidential race, a tiny minority of caucus voters who wrote their name on notebook paper and "voted" (sometimes more than once) in the caucus contests are more qualified???
Less than a million total caucus voters, many in strongly republican areas of the country (such as the Great Plains States) completely overrode the will of 35 million primary voters who actually gave Hillary Clinton more delegates than Barack Obama, even when Florida and Michigan were not counted!

The above Huffington post headline is a pretty horrible example. even by Huffington Post "standards". Huffington Post first exaggerated how much Hillary Clinton was supposed to win in West Virginia, then when her totals were slightly lower than the exaggerated estimate, Huffington Post accused Hillary Clinton of losing her "racist" base. Did Barack Obama have a racist base?

Huffington Post helps ambush Hillary Clinton with the Jimmy Carter "inevitability" headline. This is the newest and most toxic form of news headlines actually manipulating events that have not yet happened. It so lowers the bar for what good journalism is that I wonder if these types of media outlets should even be called news.

What if the headline had been "Hillary Clinton sees a spike in pledged delegates as she continues winning over the final 10 weeks of the campaign". Do you see how easy it would have been to swing the nomination to Hillary Clinton?
According to the media the Colorado Caucus is "too close to call" just before the caucus vote was held, yet Barack Obama would win by a 2-1 margin. Yep, those caucus contests fairly reflect the popularity of each candidate (sarcasm alert).
MSNBC anchors and pundits condescendingly discuss whether or not Hillary Clinton should be V.P. "Does Hillary Clinton count as a southerner in that she of course spent all that time in Arkansas, Lynn, in Arkansas? She has that southern twang."
Hillary Clinton as VP? Another laugh fest at MSNBC over this proposal.
Chris Kofinis is probably one of the most obnoxious, snarky, blowhard, laugh harder, presumably paid off pundit I can ever recall. Formerly in the John Edwards camp, Kofinis was "shocked" to learn that John Edwards had had an affair.
Kofinis claims that he didn't know anything about the Edwards affair even though he worked as communications director for Edwards for a year and a half!
After Edwards quit the race, Kofinis appeared on MSNBC as some kind of "expert pundit" and he would bash Hillary Clinton every time he was put on the air. I can't stand this kind of behavior, losers who got a second chance from Barack Obama to attack Hillary Clinton at every turn.
Jonathan Alter joins Keith Olbermann in what might be one of the most bizarre segments ever for a "news" show. Olbermann and Alter ridiculed John McCain after McCain gave an eloquent tribute to Hillary Clinton and her campaign. Newsweek and Time are so in the tank for Obama it is embarrassing to watch these "pundits" such as Alter whore themselves just to get on Keith's Playhouse.
MSNBC anchors and pundits alike make fun of Bill Clinton and how he should be "used" to help get Barack Obama elected. Is that Hillary Rosen from Arianna Huffington who claimed to still be a Hillary Clinton fan laughing it up at Hillary Clinton's expense?

Jay Leno, looking uncomfortably a lot like the Joker, ridicules the notion that Hillary Clinton was forced to suspend her campaign because of NBC. A couple of male audience members laugh loudly in what looks like an effort to support Jay's joke and get the audience to laugh along as well. This is really creepy stuff.
Well Jay, it was actually MSNBC, CNN, Time, Newsweek, Huffington Post, The Atlantic Monthly and a slew of paid off politicians and pundits that demanded Hillary Clinton quit well before the democratic convention.

Barack Obama BELLY FLOPS on Florida and Michigan delegates.

Here is the link to the newspaper that might be breaking the story first. Palm Beach Post

UNACCEPTABLE! A real man would have accepted having Michigan and Florida counting early on, when it could have hurt his chances at becoming the democratic nominee. Doing it now, on August 3rd, 2008, just shows a level of arrogance against Hillary Clinton supporters that is just beyond comprehension, almost.

Sure Barack Obama supporters can now whine, "well, no matter what we do, we just can't make Hillary Clinton Supporters happy". WRONG. That ship sailed as time dragged on and on any scenario that could help Hillary win, even if it was the ETHICAL AND CORRECT thing to do, was dumped overboard with virtually no possibility of a lifeline by the Barack Obama strategy crew.

You don't get to have it both ways. You don't get to cheat in the caucus states, cheat in the delegate count race, use the media to brow beat super delegates into CHANGING their vote from Hillary to Barack, you don't get to IGNORE that Hillary Clinton won 40 more congressional district contests than Barack Obama, and then try and rewrap Florida and Michigan and present it as a gift to Hillary Clinton supporters.

Every step that the Barack Obama camp takes lately is turning into huge missteps. That's what happens when you truly don't have the consensus of the majority, but you continue to pretend that you do.

Invasion of the Soros Snatchers, Beware of LInks to George Soros owned internet media.

Sad to say, but it appears that people don't know who George Soros is.

If George Soros owns it, DON'T SUPPORT IT. George Soros has temporarily derailed Hillary Clinton's career, yet some blogs still post links to Media Matters, which is connected to George Soros.

If you need info on George Soros, just use google with quotes around the phrase "George Soros is Evil" and you will find some very enlightening articles.

A couple of months ago I found I was having difficulty getting my blogs listed on any site that had a corrente link on it. I had already written a couple of articles about George Soros and the Arianna Huffington Connection and I believe that might have been the reason why I could not get listed on Corrente and or any site that had a link to Corrente.

After finally getting "approved" to post on Corrente I was immediately banned after I posted a response to a topic explaining how George Soros used resources such as Moveon.org, Huffington Post, MSNBC, CNN, Time and Newsweek to attack Hillary Clinton.

MoveON.org is an organization that was originally formed after the impeachment attack on Bill Clinton. Moveon was created to raise money to protect democrats from future persecution.

In 2004 Soros purchased Moveon.org and in 2008 actually turned around and rammed the Moveon.org organization and all of it's power against Hillary Clinton in this year's election! This incomprehensible reversal is the action of a billionaire sociopath named George Soros. Who would use the very organization that was founded to prevent another Bill Clinton lynching, against Hillary Clinton? George Soros, that's who.

Be careful about linking to Media Matters. Although Media Matters probably has fine, scholarly individuals writing for it, George Soros is beind Media Matters, and after he fouled Move on.org, in my opinion Media Matters becomes tainted by association. Or to put it another way, unless Media Matters comes out and attacks Moveon.org for their role in this years democratic race, Media Matters has a George Soros bias.

You can try a George Soros experiment. Write a biting, yet truthful commentary about George Soros and see if the blog owner flinches. lol, being banned is a sign the blog owner flinched.

Why We Protest the Hillary Clinton Delegate Count.

Is this Fair Reflection? Does the Democratic Party believe in Fair Reflection? The question can't be answered, if it is never asked by the media.



Obama supporters don't care about Fair Reflection, but real democrats, do.

Nevada Commercial on MSNBC Backroom Deal as Well???


I find it suspicious that two States that Hillary Clinton won but only gained two net delegates from are getting commercial time on MSNBC promoting their states.

First it was Michigan with the VERY FIRST commercial broadcast immediately after Hillary Clinton's suspension speech had finished. Now I see a Nevada Tourism commerical right smack dab in the middle of an MSNBC prime time show.

What makes this so suspicious to me is that Michigan and Nevada were two of the states that show UNFAIR REFLECTION towards Hillary Clinton in the delegate race. Hillary Clinton gained a NET total of TWO DELEGATES from Michigan and Nevada even though she won both states.

These two commercials on MSNBC could just be coinicidental, or it could be payback for supporting Barack Obama. lol, maybe MSNBC will report on itself in a fair and balanced manner. The timing of when the Michigan commercial ran might have been one of those inside jokes, that has now been turned inside out by yours truly.

Florida Michigan BackRoom Deals???

When the first commercial that appears on MSNBC after Hillary Clinton's suspension speech on Saturday is a commercial for Michigan, one wonders what is going on. Barack Obama achieved an early Iowa advantage by taking his name off of the Michigan ballot. It was a calculated gamble that Edwards, Obama and Richardson executed together on the final afternoon that one could legally take their name off of the Michigan ballot, and it paid off handsomely early on for Barack Obama in Iowa.

It made Iowa residents happy to see three democrats "protest" Michigan moving their primary into January.

But then Barack Obama got an additional boost when the DNC, rather than acknowledge a political gamble that was now about to backfire on Barack Obama, instead protected Barack Obama and actually gave him Michigan delegates even though Obama voluntarily took his name off of the MIchigan ballot.

To add the final insult to the Michigan wound against Hillary Clinton, the very first commercial MSNBC ran after Hillary Clinton's suspension speech ended was a "move your company to Michigan commercial". This just looks like quid pro quo. Fall in line, back Barack, and we'll run your "come to Michigan" commercial on MSNBC. The arrogance of the people who have invaded the democratic party clearly has no bounds and apparently very little integrity as well.

"Fair Reflection" How the Democratic Process Ignored Fair Reflection.

The visual just below illustrates the OPPOSITE of the concept of "Fair Reflection". When voters have all day to vote, and vote in the privacy of a voting booth, the vote totals from that particular state more accurately reflect the will of the popular vote in that state. When Voters didn't have all day to vote, could only vote in restricted locations and within a restricted time period, and had to vote in public rather than the privacy of a voting booth, Barack Obama did so well the numbers didn't accurately match up with the actual popular vote of that state for each candidate. This can be called "Fair Reflection, Denied".
Above is the ridiculous margin of victory for Barack Obama in the Idaho Caucus that had nothing to do with reality, but much to do with back room deals, the very thing Barack Obama claims to want to "change". Barack Obama succeeded by playing the very style of Old School politicking that Barack Obama claims he would "change". Below is the Result of the Idaho Primary, notice how much closer the final results are?
The Primary vote reveals a much closer 56%-37% margin of victory, Barack Obama's ridiculously unrepresentative win from the caucus vote was a 70%-17% margin of victory. Hillary enjoyed a 440% increase in her vote total in the primary vote, Barack Obama had a 140% increase in his primary vote total. The Primary Vote swing is 43% in Hillary's favor.



Up Above is the Nebraska Primary and Caucus Results. After losing in the Nebraska Caucus by a 68% to 32% margin of victory, Hillary Clinton once again closed the gap losing by only two percentage points, 49% to 47% in the Nebraska Primary. The Nebraska primary vote represents a 38% shift in the popularity of both candidates towards Hillary Clinton.



The Washington Primary offers almost an identical shift in numbers as the Nebraska primary. Hillary Clinton once again closed the gap from an unrealistic 68%-31% margin of victory in the Washington Caucus to 51% to 46% in the Washington Primary. The shift in popularity is 32% towards Hillary Clinton. (I recall these numbers used to be 50%-47%, but we'll go with the 51%-46%).

Yes, I believe in Fair Reflection, unfortunately other than a few intellectuals on Hillary Clinton's side, such as Harold Ickies, the phrase Fair Reflection is meaningless to the democratic party higher ups.

New Blog from Alessandro Machi, WALL STREET CHANGE, is now Online.

Wall Street Change

While the George Soros / Arianna Huffington led Media Attack against Hillary Clinton appears to be succeeding, I think it important to not lose sight of issues that affect every american on a daily level.

Wall Street fascinates me.

I understand that Wall Street represents a link to the global business community, but is the Wall Street Status quo acceptable to americans who are seeing their local economy suffer as a result?

When Wall Street Stock rises because a fortune 500 company reduces american labor force, even when that labor force was not actually losing the company money, it becomes clear that Wall Street's agenda is different from that which is decent for the american citizen. I'd like Wall Street Change to be a place where we build simple ideas into simple solutions that maybe one day get incorporated by Wall Street.

Democrats to Cover up Caucus Cheating by Forcing Hillary Clinton out of the Race as Soon as Possible.

Fair Warning to all democratic officials, if you support Hillary Clinton's cessation of her campaign to help cover up the caucus cheating that went on, you could be indicted later on for aiding and abetting criminal activity.

Barack Obama's Error In Judgement Swept Under the Rug During Florida Michigan Discussions.

Never before has a democratic candidate received assistance in the acquisition of delegates in the manner in which Barack Obama received them this past weekend. Barack Obama was given Michigan delegates even though his name was not even on the Michigan ballot!

Several years ago Barack Obama challenged the petition names of those running against him for senate. Barack was able to get the top three competitors removed from the ballot by disqualifying their supporters signatures. I don't really think that is that controversial actually. It seems like Obama was able to ridicule old school style of politicking by being a bit slick. It was Barack's way of saying "I'm educated and above you now, I know your tricks, and I'll one up you".

In Michigan, Barack Obama took his name off of the Michigan ballot. Almost the entire media seems to accept this as being some kind of normal procedure. But in retrospect, it really makes very little sense. Isn't something better than nothing?

It turns out that Barack had just made another "slick" move. When Barack took his name off of the Michigan ballot, he did so as a way to endear himself to Iowa voters. It was Barack's way of telling Iowa that nobody better ever try and move their primary date up, Iowa is King! Knowing that by taking his name off of the Michigan ballot, Barack Obama would not only win the Iowa vote, but once again he could trick his own party members into the notion that, "How could the votes in Michigan count, I wasn't even on the ballot".

Dig a little further and we see that Richardson and Edwards took their names off of the Michigan ballots as well, how about that! Edwards and Richardson were in cahoots with Barack and articles have been written about how these three shared caucus voters. Edwards, Richardson, and Obama agreed to help prop each other in the caucus states votes by sharing their excess caucus voters! The top four finishers are eligible for government funding, so it ended up being a sleazy deal that helped them all out.

Is this the kind of change Barack Obama is bringing to the democratic party? Back room deals and shenanigans in which the media always presents the sleazy backroom deals in the best light possible? Barack Obama takes his name off of the ballot in Michigan to gain favor with Iowa voters, then turns around and looks like a victim because his name was off of the ballot in Michigan. As if that wasn't enough, the DNC turn actually took 4 delegates away from Hillary Clinton in the process! But not to be outdone, the DNC also gave Barack a whole slew of MIchigan delegates THAT WERE NOT HIS!

Wow, I'm almost impressed. NOT!

"Fair Reflection", American News Media Changes the Meaning of Harold Ickes Phrase during the Florida Michigan Delegate Vote Discussion.

I have had to rerun this article after noticing the american media is trying to camouflauge and change the context under which the phrase "Fair Reflection" was used when Harold Ickes questioned Robert Wexler about its meaning.

I am stunned at the level of deception our own american media is stooping to in an effort to change a pivotal moment in the Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Florida Michigan delegate battle.

Robert Wexler makes a very controversial statement...."What we are saying is that up to the number of 19, which is the maximum amount allowable under the Ausman Petition and under your rules. WE THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN WILL SUPPORT THAT EFFORT, AND WE DO SO, WE DO SO, IN AN EFFORT OF UNITY."

"Why Mr. Ickes, is it a significant concession?"

"Because in the State of Ohio and the State of Pennsylvania, TOGETHER, Senator Clinton WON A TOTAL OF 19 DELEGATES!!!"

"and here we are today offering a resolution that brings Florida voters TOGETHER, that actually amounts to both the victories of Ohio and Pennsylvania! Let us UNIFY, LET US MOVE ON!" -Robert Wexler


(The pro Obama supporters cheer this rampantly arrogant and completely misguided, idiotic reasoning. It is this "reasoning" which also permeates the elitist Obama brainchild to an alarming degree)."

-------------------------------
Commentary by Alessandro Machi about the above statement of Robert Wexler.

Besides Ohio and Pennsylvania, Mr. Wexler could have added Texas, Nevada, and Indiana to his infamous 19 Delegate list. All five states were Hillary Clinton Wins, and all five actually netted Hillary Clinton ONLY 18 delegates!

Do you see the narcissism and arrogance, the "mine, mine, mine" style of politicking the Obama camp runs? The Barack Obama camp is actually bragging that the 19 Florida delegates they want to bestow on Hillary Clinton is an incredibly generous offer. The Barack Obama 19 Florida delegate offer is one more than the sum total of delegates that Hillary Clinton picked up in the swing states of Ohio and Pennsylvania, PLUS Texas, Nevada, and Indiana, ALL HILLARY CLINTON VICTORY STATES!

lol, isn't it possible, just possible, that winning a decisive plurality when millions upon millions of voters vote, (also known as "Fair Reflection") is more significant and bankable than the cheating the Obama camp did in the caucus states to pick up a couuple of hundred questionable delegates?

"Fair Reflection" is a concept that is completely oblivious to the Barack Obama camp and clearly was not used as a bellweather to limit the amount of cheating that the Barack Obama side was involved in during their caucus campaigning.

A wise leader knows to limit the amount of cheating to just below what will be noticed. lol, Clearly Barack Obama is not a wise leader.

Ickes is stunned into Silence by the bravado of the intellectually bankrupt opposition.

Robert Wexler listens as Harold Ickes asks, "I gather that you agree with the concept of fair reflection?"

Mr. Wexler looks confused, but smugly confident nonetheless since he doesn't fear that which he cannot comprehend. The pro Obama side cheers on Mr. Wexler as if to say "You may not know what "Fair Reflection means", but we don't either so it must not matter".


In a signature moment that defines the Obama campaign motto of "If we don't understand you, then you don't make sense", Mr. Wexler mockingly and cockily presumes that not only does he not know what fair reflection is, it just doesn't matter to him nor the Obama side.

Mr. Ickes, realizing that he is up against pure bravado backed by youthful inexperience, does not attempt to educate the defiantly uneducatable. This is what the real democratic party is up against. Youthful arrogance that can't comprehend it was Bill Clinton's administration that laid the foundation for their own parents being able to save money during the 90's so they could go to college. Apparently that college education has been used to hate Hillary Clinton, and to cheat in the caucus state voting. wow.

Hillary Clinton is also up against a sordid duo of Billionaire George Soros and secret love interest Arianna Huffington and the politics of hating those who stay married, competently raise a child, and show their love and respect for each other through their mutual teamwork as husband and wife. The democratic party is being done in by ilicit lovers who have fricasseed a successful, intelligent, married woman. double wow.

Elizabeth Smith MAKES A LOT OF SENSE.

Elizabeth Smith asked what I have been asking on this Florida-Michigan Blog for the past few days, WHY DID BARACK OBAMA TAKE HIS NAME OFF OF THE BALLOT IN MICHIGAN?

David Bonior COULD NOT ANSWER THE QUESTION!

IT'S CALLED MAKING A MISTAKE!

BARACK OBAMA MADE A MISTAKE IN MICHIGAN. It's that simple.

David Bonior Makes no Sense

Because Barack Obama avoided putting his name on the ballot in Michigan, he is entitled to as many delegates as someone who put their name on the ballot and actually received votes. Barack Obama is all bout risk free winning, he did it in the Caucus states where his people cheated, and he is doing it in Florida and Michigan.

"More Sir", Why Michigan Moved their Primary Date Forward Only to be Beaten Down by the Democratic Party.

Once again the entire US media fails to address issues that actually matter. Lost in all the drama about Florida and Michigan is why did Michigan move their Primary date forward?

Have you ever witnessed or been in a desperate situation and all the rules of civilized society that you have agreed to abide by, while still relevant, suddenly don't seem to apply to your particular situation?

A kitten is frolicking in a normally busy intersection, but no cars are coming by at that moment. Do you skip out against the light, grab the oblivious kitten, or do you wait until the light has changed and then try to save the kitten? Of course the obvious answer is that if no cars are anywhere near the vicinity and it is safe to go and get the kitten, you get the kitten.

The case can be made that with record job losses in the automotive industry Michigan is witnessing the erosion of their own state's workforce. Michigan's act of moving their election date toward the front of the primary schedule was an act of desperation.

The higher ups in the democratic party simply point to their red light rules and regulations and in the process completely ignore the reality of the plight of Michigan. I view Michigan as Lousiana just before the levees broke. In an effort to try and convey the importance of losing auto industry jobs and the cascading devastation that follows, Michigan took a step forward and basically said, "More Sir" ala Oliver in Oliver Twist when Oliver asks for a second helping of soup.

So how did the democratic party react to the act of desperation by Michigan? They responded in a manner similar to the head master in the Oliver Twist Story and immediately punished Oliver, er Michigan, for asking for more. Fiction repeats itself in real life, courtesy of the democratic national party as they slap Michigan on the wrist, face and arms really, really hard, and say "no soup for you."

CNN Barack Obama Documentary Special Thursday, May 29th, Tonight, on Anderson Cooper 360!

Update to this topic... For a really terrific article on Barack Obama's past campaign shenanigans, check out Barack Obama's election history hoisted by his own petard.

You can also check out the documentary video We Will Not Be Silenced. Preview portions of the video at We Will Not Be Silenced Preview Video



When Anderson Cooper didn't bother to mention the Barack Obama segment at the beginning of his own show, I figured the Barack Obama expose wasn't that big of a deal.


While Anderson Cooper didn't appear very impressed with his own television staffs work on the piece, it does set up the possibility for an update. Should the caucus state cheating ever be investigated, it would make for an interesting follow up showing Barack Obama crossing a line that he dared tip toe up to when his senate career was just starting.
Above are stills from a promo on CNN for the Barack Obama Anderson Cooper 360 documentary about Barack's early political career which premieres tonight, Thursday, May 29, 2008 on CNN Anderson Cooper 360. CNN made the claim that the Barack Obama camp does not want this special to air.

We'll see.

Apparently the documentary will cover Barack's ability to take out his opponents such as Alice Palmer by using legal tactics, before they ever make it to the ballot. It looks to me like some things stay the same, now Barack has progressed to taking out opponents in caucus state voting, bending the law to the point of breaking, and perhaps beyond.

Associated Press Makes Controversial Statement About Florida & MIchigan Against Hillary Clinton.

The AP quote "Obama is willing to give her the lion's share of those delegates but is stopping short of her demand to fully recognize the two renegade states." is just the latest in a long series of misrepresentations of the truth by the media. How do they live with themselves?

Obama is willing to give Hillary Clinton the lion's share of those delegate votes? It must be tough be a lion these days. Or, did the AP mean, Obama was willing to give Hillary Clinton the lying share of the delegate votes that Barack Obama stole in the Caucus States?

This is the kind of one sided news coverage that has afflicted the democratic race in general.

So when does Barack Obama look into the camera, wag his finger at us, and say "I did not cheat with those caucus state votes".

Hillary Never Waffled on Florida and Michigan Delegates Counting

On Jan 25, 2008, Senator Clinton stated the following in a press release:

“I hear all the time from people in Florida and Michigan that they want their voices heard in selecting the Democratic nominee.

“I believe our nominee will need the enthusiastic support of Democrats in these states to win the general election, and so I will ask my Democratic convention delegates to support seating the delegations from Florida and Michigan. I know not all of my delegates will do so and I fully respect that decision. But I hope to be President of all 50 states and U.S. territories, and that we have all 50 states represented and counted at the Democratic convention.

“I hope my fellow potential nominees will join me in this.

“I will of course be following the no-campaigning pledge that I signed, and expect others will as well.”

She has stated this very same position on numerous occasions:

February 22, 2008:
March 12, 2008:
March 12, 2008:
March 17, 2008:
March 20, 2008:

Is fairness in the media too much to ask for?

Debunking the Reasons Given for Not Counting Michigan and Florida votes.

There are several reasons that nullify the "but Hillary agreed" position.

The first argument against the "But Hillary Agreed" position is, Barack Obama was losing in both Florida and Michigan and had nothing to gain by not agreeing to the DNC proposal. This is very important to note because all everyone wants to do is focus on what Hillary said or did.

Barack Obama seems to get too much credit for doing things that involved nothing more than political expediency. Barack Obama's "no" vote for the war in Iraq had more to do with mirroring the position other candidates campaigning for the Senate seat Barack would eventually win had already publicly taken. Barack Obama had NOTHING TO LOSE (other than delegates to Hillary Clinton if he voted no) by voting to sanction Florida and Michigan, so why does he get so much credit?

Hillary Clinton did have something to lose by saying no to the "agreement" to not count Florida and Michigan. Hillary Clinton would have been made to look greedy and afraid by the biased media that had already coagulated around Barack Obama. "Why is Hillary afraid to lose Florida and Michigan?" the media would ask. Barack Obama would have called not agreeing to not count Florida and Michigan more "old school politics", sticking to the same old Washington style politics even when a wrong has been committed.

To argue "but Hillary agreed" as a reason to not count Florida and Michigan should then mean that the votes from those two states MUST NEVER EVER EVER COUNT in this election cycle. If the Florida and Michigan votes are only made to count when they favor Barack Obama, as in putting Barack over the top in the delegate race, then that will mean Hillary Clinton was twice penalized after going along with the DNC committee every step of the way. Hillary Clinton has already received a several month penalty because the Florida and Michigan delegates have not been counted. A penalty HAS ALREADY OCCURRED. This is a fact that seems to be obscured by the media.

There are more reasons. If the situation had been reversed, and Barack Obama had won the states of Florida and Michigan and needed those delegate votes to win or stay in the race, Hillary Clinton would have been portrayed as not being able to win on a fair, 50 state landscape, but in typical old school style of politicking, had shortened the goal posts to ensure victory.

"What about Michigan, Barack Obama didn't even have his name on the ballot, how can it be fair to count Michigan?"

Isn't it kind of stupid to take your name off of a ballot if you're one of the two favored candidates? If Hillary Clinton had taken her name off of the Michigan Ballot and Barack Obama had not, the media would have had a field day making fun of her and her naivete. The Barack Obama people would have flung hyperbole so far and wide it wouldn't matter where the goal posts were. "Of course she took her name off the ballot, she was going to lose!" they would have chortled. Another rant I am sure we would have heard would be, "I can't see how someone naive enough to take their name off of the Michigan ballot can run our country".

Shouldn't Barack Obama have asked Hillary Clinton to also take her name off of the ballot as well, and if Hillary said no, then he does so at his own risk. Clearly Barack Obama made a huge mistake and the media has not once questioned his judgement in making such a colossal blunder. Barack Obama ERRED in taking his name off of the Michigan Ballot, but the biased media is SOOOO biased nobody is confident enough to state the truth.

Lets say it now for the first time, by not getting Hillary Clinton to also agree to take her name off of the Michigan Ballot, Barack Obama acted foolishly and impulsively in a manner I would not expect from a presidential candidate. It follows a pattern of behavior that Hillary Clinton has already pointed out several months ago, a earnestness to move to quickly and idealistically without having demonstrating enough caution.

As if all the above is not enough, did you know that North Carolina was given 28 extra bonus delegates to NOT move their election contest forward! A pro Obama state gets 28 extra delegates to not move their contest forward, meanwhile two pro Hillary states don't get offered any extra delegates for not moving their election date, and instead get penalized and denied their right to count. That doesn't sound very fair, does it? I expect fairness from the democratic party if they want my vote.

Denying Hillary Clinton her Florida win is like denying Barrack Obama his Illinois win. The demographics in Florida heavily favor Hillary Clinton no matter when the contest would have been held. Since Florida has already been suspended for this long and Hillary Clinton was denied fair access to a state she would have won, giving her a Florida Win immediately would be the fair and proper thing to do.

Operation Stall, Barack Obama's Diabolical Plot for Michigan and Florida.

Barack Obama is stalling in Florida and Michigan and will only allow those votes to count IF AND ONLY IF those votes put Barack Obama over the new delegate majority threshold that has yet to be established.

Unbelieveable. This is just like when the Iran hostages of 1979 were released on the day Ronald Reagan was sworn in.

What Barack Obama is doing is Operation Stall - the slimiest of all tactics because if Operation Stall is successful it will be used as a huge photo and video opportunity with a beaming Barack Obama in the foreground, and thousands of Floridians in the background chanting his name as Barack Obama.

By not having counted the votes in either Michigan and Florida up until now Barack Obama has maintained an artificially bigger delegate lead than he really has, and Barack Obama has used this extra delegate lead over the past several months to convince other delegates to join him.

This is called the Cascading Delegate Effect. Once Florida and Michigan delegate victories were denied to Hillary Clinton, and then Barack Obama cheated in the Caucus States, Barack was able to convince other delegates, with a toxic amount of help from the media, to side with him to help to help maintain the public impression that Barack Obama was well ahead of Hillary Clinton, when he was not, he was actually losing.

There is no real foundation for Barack Obama's lead other than first denying the votes of Michigan and Florida, and then cheating in the caucus states to build a false lead, a lead that does not actually stand up to any real measure of reality when one factors in what it has taken to give Barack Obama his faux lead.
