Poetic Justice
« on: April 22, 2008, 08:38:09 pm »
The results of tonight's primary in Pennsylvania really bring home why Obama can't win in November and even more that many people in life get just what they deserve. When I see a complete absence of labor representatives in America providing true context to the disenfranchisement, exploitation and hardship that millions of working class Americans are experiencing in the face of "bittergate", I know things will only get worse.

When multi-millionaire pundits on corporate owned newschannels define what it is to be working class and millions who can barely make ends meet agree with them you know something is desperately wrong. Now, I am under no illusions that the majority of those who voted for Clinton today would have done so regardless of the "bitter" controversy; but to think that many of them would actually think that those comments were more damaging than the marginalized reality of their lives speaks volumes. At this point if someone believes that throwing back a beer and taking a shot equates to defending the working class, you deserve to be downsized and robbed of a pension while corporate CEO's cash out their platinum parachutes.

I expect gas prices to be at about 5 dollars come November with all of the related price increases that come with it. When this happens, I have no doubt that these same salt of the earth, working class people will find another "slight" that justifies voting against their own viability and the future of those just like them.

P.T. Barnum said it best, " A sucker is born every minute" and for some in America that birthrate is at an all-time high.

Isn't it still positive that Obama more than halved Hilary's lead? As I understand it, it went from 20 points down to 8, which is pretty impressive (for Barack).

Actually down to 9.4 with what appears to be little more than 50% turnout. The final polls before the election were down to 6%.
