    Watch this video. There is no doubt that if it wasnt for the MSM Obama would still be organizing black neighborhoods.

    Most voters are lazy- they don't take time to get informed on people or issues and instead rely upon the pablum the media spoons out. That goes for those of both parties- most independent and third-party voters are better-informed, otherwise they would follow the rest of the sheep.

    Is this a polite way of saying that people who voted for Obama were stupid?:laugh:

    Does anyone really think that McCain/Palin voters would have done any better?

    We can blame the MSM all we want - the fault is with lazy, uninformed, apathetic voters.

    Although former Senator Barak Obama has not yet actually been 'elected' (that will occur on Dec. 15, when the Electors meet and actually vote), he will then have been elected by receiving >270 electoral votes.

    It's fairly simple, really!! 270 is the 'magic number' which he, in all likelihood, will receive, barring some totally unforeseen and/or unforeseeable situation. :rolleyes:

    A Little Help, Guys and Gals??

    What exactly is "the MSM"? I hit the link, but got a site, not a video.

    And, FTR, I don't put a lot of stock in "You-Tube" so did not view that.

    Incidentally, I would say that I have never, ever seen an election where, overall, "the Media was more 'heavily invested' " in a specific desired outcome to an election, than in this one.

    lets see, acorn registering dead voters, and black panthers threatening voters, people voting for him knowing nothing about him or where he stands(we saw video of this) voting only because he was black yep, I can see how he got elected.

    Actually, it's a commentary on the sad state of public education in the U.S. I'm certain you could easily find a dozen McCain voters who were as ill-informed as these people were.

    No, Obama was elected because 53% of the American people chose a majority of electors pledged to him. The main reason he was elected was the inept leadership of your liberal hero, George Bush.

    They were noticably in the tank for Kerry as well, but I agree this was worse.

    They abandoned any pretense of objective news reporting and chose sides, abrogating their responsibility to the public.

    I beg to differ. Obama tied McCain to Bush and the media played along big-time. Just go and check out how many positive articles or news reports there were for McCain/Palin versus those for Obama/Biden. Or on the flip side- negative reports, especially re the VP candidates. Biden made at least as many gaffes as Palin supposedly did, but his were not front-page news.

    Oh, yeah, the media got their man elected all right.

    Somehow I don't think our Founding Fathers would agree with your definition.

    BTW, do you realize that "Democracy" means the same thing as "Laodicea"

    Demo = People
    Cracy = Rule

    Laos = People (we get the word Laity from this)
    Dicea = Rule...

    I wonder if there is something hidden in God's word about the endtimes where people think they have control....

    Yes, I thing they would. Most of Obama supporters were young rabble-rousers who voted only on the basis of skin color.

    Thats quite a judgement, however I doubt it is based on solid research.

    The idea that people with a certain amount of education should be the only ones to vote is a scary thing and imposing such would be the slipperiest of slopes.
