    Obama is gaining attention by snubbing WV and KY.

    Check out this article from Los Angeles Times...
    http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/washington/2008/05/what-if-hillary.html

    I guess he feels that he can write off 2 states in the union...
    But that's OK.. after all, he would still have 56 states.

    He snubbed 2 of the poorest states in order to court Oregon...

    The rich snob is showing his disdain for hard working people...

    Is this the type of president you want?
    Not me.

    He has no respect for WVians, KYians, the unborn, God fearing Christians...

    But he courts the rich, baby killing, gay loving, socialist liberals....

    What has happened to the party of the people? Wake up Democrats your party has been hijacked by Elite snobs that thumb their noses at God.

    But of course, this is coming from my perspective...
    You can (and I am sure some do) have totally different POVs...

    That's what makes America great.. we can all disagree.:thumbs:

    It's no snub. It's math. WV & KY are heavy Clinton areas, so why waste resources to budge the needle a hair?

    The Democratic Party has painted themselves into a corner, and they know it, and so does Hillary, so it looks like Obama will be the candidate. But it's not over til it's over.

    My husbands talks with a lot of people everyday, customers who he's known for years. They usually want to talk a lot, so he does.
    Not once has he had a person say they wanted to vote for obama, no one believes his commercials, many are voting for Hillary, and a surprising number have changed their registered affiliation and are now republicans. Because of obama.

    Why?

    Especially in light of his recent quote:

    "We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK."


    Why on earth would we want this guy running for president?

    WV's venerable US Senator, Robert Byrd, endorsed Sen. Obama for President, despite how the vote went down.

    And of course, I am not surprised that WV and KY are fans of Hill & Billy! :laugh:

    If they truly support the principles of limited government, then they should join the Libertarian Party.

    I'm personally, not an Obama fan, by any stretch.

    So, as one Kentuclian, I'd feel pretty good, about being "snubbed".

    But I do not appreciate seeing Christains mindlessly repeat this sort of "Yellow Journalism", implying that Sen. Obama has not visited KY. I don't feel good about that, at all. The implication, in the article, is that Sen. Obama has not been to KY, at all.
    That is purely and simply a lie.

    In fact, only a week ago, on May 12, 2008, Sen. Barack Obama was in Louisville, KY, at an event, and wound up canceling a second scheduled appearance to return to Washington for some vote, in the Senate. He has also visited KY, on other occasions, just not this week.

    http://www.wlextv.com/Global/story.asp?S=8312032

    Y'all do know what "'voting' in the Senate" is, right? :rolleyes:

    (I haven't used any words that are to big to comprehend here, have I?)

    The thing that Barack Obama gets paid to do, along with Dick Durbin, as the Senators from Illinois, just as Kentuckians Mitch McConnell and Jim Bunning get paid to do the same thing, as our own state's duly elected Senators, along with Sen. Hillary Clinton, Sen. John McCain, and 94 other United States Senators. In fact, every once in a while, the Vice President of the United States even gets a chance to 'vote in the Senate'.

    FTR, I am no fan of Sen. Hillary Clinton, either, and very little more of one of Sen. John McCain, for that matter.

    I happen to be registered as a Republican, and I will vote in the KY primary, tomorrow. (I am fully aware that the final outcome of the Republican nominations is assured for Sen. McCain, but will vote, anyway, if only to keep my own 'streak' alive. I have never missed any election, where I was eligible to vote, in the over 40 years, since I was old enough to vote, except for last spring's primary, when I was in the hospital, and the bumbling, idiotic, hospital bureaucracy kept me from being released that morning when I was scheduled to, until after 5:00PM, instead of in the AM, so that I was not able to get to the polls before they closed.)

    I will be voting for someone other than Sen. McCain, who is technically still in the race. I'm not sure which candidates are still in that category, but have my own mind made up in descending order. The info at the polling places will tell us which ones will still have their votes tabulated. If it happens that none except Sen. McCain's votes will be tabulated (a possibility, due to those withdrawing from the race, but perhaps not to those who have instead "suspended" their campaigns), then I will cast a blank ballot.

    Wow ^, in some states they still go to polling sites. I'll just be glad to finally hear the last of the Obama and Clinton commercials that have been running 24/7 out here.

    I want them all to lose can't figure out how.:tear:

    Becuase he will lose to McCain, Hillary would give him much more of a battle and would probably end up narrowly winning. I'm on the fence about the truth, if any, to the rumour Michelle tape that supposed to hit Thursday, his nomination could still be derailed.

    No politician is stupid enough to spend time in states he/she knows they will not win. Rather they will spend time in states where the race is close.

    It doesn't feel very good to see lies posted by Christians, anyway!

    Point is, that while Sen. Obama did not spend a great deal of time in either WV or KY, he did visit both WV and KY, recently before the primary, as some links have shown. The implication that he did not is a total falsehood, and I do not believe Christians should be involved with the passing on of such. The article in the LA times does, in fact, now have an ex post facto correction, 'er I mean "Update", which they admit is factually incorrect, to the story that Sen. Obama, did not visit KY, but then effectively said, they were only speaking of "recently" after the WV primary. Uh- that WV Primary was only last week, if my memory is correct, and on the same day, or the day after Sen. Obama did visit KY.

    Am I wrong, here??

    Or does being truthful not extend as far as the political arena, where Christians are concerned?

    I don't think McCain has a chance against either of the democratic nominees, but I would just about as soon vote for Clinton as I would for Obama.

    Yeah.. one short event in WV on the Monday before the primary...
    He really, really cares about hard working folk here in the mountains of appalachia! (rolls eyes)...
    And while Hill and Bill were travelling WV 2 weeks ago, Obama was on our news stating that Hill was going to win, but it didn't matter to him because our state doesn't have enough votes to matter!

    Byrd is really out of touch with WVians... He is soo old school that he doesn't know what most WVians think...

    Besides, he is as big a Jerk as Obama is.
    It's time for him to retire.

    You go right ahead and slam him, I would expect nothing less from you. And, concerning the great state of WV, I don't think the other 49 are too concerned [attack deleted]
