Obama Gains Momentum – In Canada

The Canadian press has it right. Unlike the invested New York Times, they’ve written about the implications of the math – and not the emotion of narrow victories in states where big wins were anticipated. The Canadians have perceived last night for what it was – a colossal effort to gain ground which failed.

What do Rhode Island, Arkansas, American Samoa and New York have in common? Those are the only states (going back to January) where Ms. Clinton has claimed more than 57% of the popular vote. Contrast that with her opponent who continues to rack up clear pluralities – while retaining solid numbers in big states.

Ms. Clinton has suggested that the voters in Ohio should place her at the top of the ticket. Surely she jests. There are many ways to figure this thing out. Let’s take an equally absurd proposition. Let’s simply tally the votes for Ohio, Illinois and New York. Would that work for Ms. Clinton? Let’s reduce the election to Home States and her precious Ohio.

Do the math. Even in this cupcake scenario, she loses.

Take heed from the Canadians. Mythical momentum is nothing to build hopes on.

Hillary Clinton led a rejuvenated campaign Wednesday after comeback victories in the Texas and Ohio Democratic primaries, but did not appear to pick up enough delegates to make a significant dent in the lead of her rival, Barack Obama.
Numbers emerging the day after the contests based on results from the Texas caucuses indicated Obama had regained lost ground on Clinton in the Lone Star state, while also not giving up much in losses in Rhode Island and Ohio.
Clinton, whose campaign just two weeks ago was deemed on the ropes by many political observers, even hinted Wednesday at the possibility of sharing the Democratic presidential ticket with Obama, but with her name at the top.

    THIS ELECTION IS ABOUT – 29 NEW NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS (Big MONEY)
    Aka: Dick Cheney’s NEXT Big ENERGY MONOPOLY RIPOFF … ( Plan)….

    Whether Cheney’s PLAN succeeds ….OR NOT…. is UP to ALL of YOU.

    We all know CORPORATE POWER is in control of our government and ROBBING us every way they can. The “NEWS” media is NOW nearly totally under the control of Corporate interests.

    The Corporate-Controlled “news” media have interlocking Boards of Directors (same member serves on multiple boards) and all of them serve to enrich their CONGLOMERATED Corporate Masters. (*see F.A.I.R. website link at the end of this post.)

    *******************REAL News you won’t see on TV***********************************

    Obama is the pre-packaged “New & Improved Chocolate Flavor” Presidential candidate being Marketed like a PRODUCT – hyped & PUSHED by GE and its WHOLLY-Owned subsidiaries NBC & MSNBC…along with Westinghouse & its subsidiary CBS…while slamming the Clintons all day every day. (Assisted by…CNN/FOX/ and a lot of newspaper & radio media dependent on advertising $$$.) GE is the 2nd largest corporation on the planet.

    Obama is IN with the Nuclear Industry: Excelon Corp of Illinois has been one of his largest contributors from his entry into politics to the present. Excelon is the largest nuke operator on the planet;owns Con-Ed of NY; more nukes in Illinois than any other state.

    GE, Westinghouse, Excelon & 3 consortiums of other companies are planning to build 29 new nuclear power plants. Their Wholly-Owned & Wholly Influenced “News” media are selling the Obama Product because Obama is in favor of Nukes.

    In 2005 Obama Voted FOR the Cheney Energy Bill (H.R.6) which ENABLED the nuke industry to make its Plans to build 29 new nukes-by Guaranteeing Taxpayer Payback of any nuke loans that default. (No nukes were built for the past 30 years because the banks wouldn’t loan the money – too risky)

    Obama Voted FOR the Cheney Energy Bill-despite the fact the Congressional Budget Office rated the risk of default on the nuke loans at 50% or greater. (Does that sound like…GOOD…JUDGMENT to You?)

    [NY Times has several articles about the nuke plans & a map showing all 29 locations; Wikipedia covers the subject]

    Clinton Voted AGAINST the Cheney Energy Bill and said her Energy Plan does not include nuclear.

    ? “Its about the FUTURE …… Turn The PAGE” ?

    Nope. Its about Turning the PAGE BACK to the PAST: Obsloete 50 yr old nuke power plants-the dirtiest most expensive kind/centrally-controlled MONOPOLY POWER-instead of deploying New, Clean, Green De-Centralized Inexpensive Energy.

    An ad campaign has already begun on the TV media to re-package & re-name nuclear power plants as: GREEN & CLEAN -for- everybody too young to remember the 1970’s anti-nuke movement and all the Bad News about nuclear energy.

    Don’t be taken in by the ad campaigns – Google:’nuclear waste dumps’ & read about the hundreds of BILLIONS of gallons of nuke waste at the Hanford Washington dump; 14 tons of plutonium stored at Rocky Flats, Colorado; Barnwell, South Carolina; leaking into groundwater and rivers; plutonium released into the air around Denver from 500 instances of fires at Rocky Flats; nuke waste stored ON-SITE at every nuke reactor in America…presenting hundreds of potential “dirty bomb” targets for terrorists.

    Is it true that Obama takes No Contributions/ NO MONEY from Registered Federal Lobbyists?

    Yes. It’s a LawyerSpeak/Trick of: Speaking a Small truth covering up a Big Lie.

    Nope, doesn’t take money from REGISTERED FEDERAL Lobbyists.

    DOES take money from STATE Lobbyists, Not Registered Lobbyists, AND the wives, husbands, law partners,
    …of REGISTERED FEDERAL Lobbyists. Gets money from the same big corporate donors as any other candidate.

    Obama’s campaign finances are involved in the prosecution (by Patrick Fitzgerald) and trial of his friend of 20 years Antoin Rezko. Some of the funds… allegedly…extorted by Rezko went into Obama’s campaign coffers.

    Curiously, Iraqi Power Plants and fraud are also involved in Rezko’s trial. (Google: Obama -Rezko- Alsammarae-Auichi- IRAQ POWER PLANTS). With the Rezko trial looming over his head Obama, in all good conscience, should not have run for the Presidency – given all the unanswered questions about his involvement with Rezko; including Obama’s meeting with Rezko and Rezko’s friend Iraqi Billionaire Auichi. Obama’s LACK of good conscience in running for President – given the very high risk that the Rezko trial will result in the election of a Republican – reveals Obama’s lack of good conscience and his lack of any regard for his party, his country, or its people. Obama should withdraw from the race.

    At the beginning of this campaign season a large majority of voters were looking forward to electing Clinton. Then Obama stepped in and started the dirty campaigning that has created the DIVISION he so hypocritically decries. Obama played “the race card” so he could win in South Carolina. He was caught red-handed playing that race card-but the media blamed it on Clinton -even though they all knew they were pushing THE BIG LIE..

    With nearly ALL “the mainstream media” pimping for Obama & slamming, smearing, and lying about the Clintons-it is truly amazing enough voters have seen thru the Media-Created Obama “movement”-for Clinton to STILL be in the race.

    The only way a very small minority can CONTROL a very large Majority is: DIVIDE & CONQUER -Exactly the same Republican Strategy/Deception they have successfully pulled for most of the last century And ALL of this century, so far. . .

    GE, the nuke industry/wealthy have hedged their bets & they will get 29 new nukes IF either Obama or McCain is elected.

    Ladies & Gentlemen, Dads & Moms buy nothing GE & Westinghouse are selling – not Obama, not a washing machine, a dishwasher, 29 nuke power plants, or a garbage disposer …. because there is no garbage disposer for Radioactive Nuke Waste. Do not allow them to poison the earth and your children anymore.
