The Big "O" Show

Everyday I check the polls expecting to see that The One has broken out to a double digit lead in them all. After all, he has already rented the stadium, ordered the caviar, written his inaugural address and picked his cabinet. This week though, something different has happened. John McCain has chipped away at Obama's lead in most polls and every time I checked the Real Clear Politics average this week he has picked up a point. No wonder Obama has scheduled 30 minutes of prime time on three networks tonight. This is definitely not the time you want your opponent to pick up momentum.

I am hearing some say the Big "O" Show has a potential of backfiring and I can see that. I am really used to DVR now and only watch the commercials I want to watch for the most part. I expect there will be a big audience though, if for the curiosity factor alone. I expect The One to pull out all the stops. I expect to see a couple of Clintons, Colin Powell and lots of non-radical looking middle class types talking about how sucky life is in Bush's America. Obama will listen to them intently, feel their pain, and promise to fix all that ails them. The final portion of the infomercial is said to be broadcast live from a rally. Expect flags to wave, people to cheer and music to cue for maximum effect.

I expect it to help Obama in the polls too. How couldn't it? He is going to have time to make his case on his terms to a huge audience. The fact that he is doing this though, after having already outspent McCain many times over in many states, is interesting. It shows that Obama is leaving nothing to chance. Dump as much money as humanly possible in the battleground states -- check. Go after anyone who dares question The One -- check. Set up Obama satellite channel -- check. Make sure the media is "on board" or punish them by shutting them out -- check. Pay an ACORN group over $800,000 to get out the vote -- check. Purchase 30 minutes of prime time national television -- check.

McCain has a huge mountain to climb if he hopes to win. There may very well be a huge Obama blowout on election day. But there is this pesky little problem of an election that could get in the way. Most people have not yet voted. We will know soon enough if the Big "O" Show will stop the momentum McCain is enjoying this week. One thing is clear -- if Obama doesn't win, and win big, after all the money that has been spent in this election, and with all the help he has gotten from the media and ACORN and others, it will be a loud statement from the American public. A McCain win would show that America rejects redistributive economics and rejects a commander-in-chief ready to wave the white flag and rejects a chief executive with connections to extreme radicals. It would also show that America rejects the official candidate of the mainstream liberal media. It would be a major feat indeed to overcome the Obamessiah, but Americans still have that choice.

Update: A reader asked "And what if Obama does win, Lorie? What kind of a statement would that be from the American public? What would that show?

"Boots" responded in the comments with the perfect answer:

That would show that if America's enemies at home, which includes Obama's
friends and mentors, combine forces with most of the major forces of American media and pop culture, AND add to that $600 million of dirty money from unknown donors overseas, along with millions of forged voter registrations and votes from ACORN, that the revolution against the United States of America can be won from within.

The vicious treatment of Joe the Plumber shows us what will happen to any of us if we dare to complain....Joe asked a question of Obama when Obama showed up in Joe's driveway to use Joe & his neighbors as props in a photo op, and Joe is now being investigated by officials of the State of Ohio.

So millions of people are either duped or enemies of America.

JLawson:

Herman -

Obama has risen to the top of the heap on the Democratic side, despite having little in the way of accomplishments in his record, very little leadership experience, and essentially no executive experience.

The man hasn't been responsible for the success of anything he's touched (and Grove Parc certainly didn't benefit from his 'guidance', neither did the Annenberg Challenge which saw $150 mil spent to no effect) and he's going to run the country? You don't see anything kind of 'wrong' with that?

He's really the BEST the DNC could come up with?

I'm thinking SOMEBODY got duped, big time. Obama would make a FANTASTIC used car salesman - but where on his resume would there be anything to qualify him to manage a 7-11?

Joe Biden says nobody can work at a 7-11 unless they have at least a slight Indian accent so I guess Obama is out of luck on that one.

Why not Dems claimed the Dumbest man on Earth Bush
Arranged for Voter fraud in Florida and then managed to get the Supreme Court to Select him.
Duped America about Iraq
Truths say he duped American about 9/11
Then tricked America to reelect him
They Claim rich people are always BUYING Elections
etc etc

So I think a really smart man like OBAMA with Millions of Dollars and Rock Star status should be able to dupe more people than GW.

"I expect it to help Obama in the polls too. How couldn't it? "

Couple/three/four ways...

1) I have a sneaking suspicion that this O-Show is going to come off as either a Democrat celebrity Hollywood award-like showcase or just another nauseating Food Dryer infomercial (Call now and we'll send, not one, but TWO Obamas for only $19.95! +s&h). Either way the public will snore, or laugh, and, those who can, will switch to a 'Law and Order' rerun.

2) It could also backfire badly on him simply because of the 'saturation' effect. You can easily turn away from the Hollywood's self-love award shows because they run on a single channel. Not so with the O-Show. Those without cable/satellite or any other 150 channel set-ups will have a tough time NOT finding Obama's face in theirs.

3)Many middle-American folks - the target of Obama's commercial - are already sick and tired of all/any things political. They will move on, or off.

4) Wo unto him that interrupts someone's favorite show.

LaMedusa:

RALLY AT SUPREME COURT FOR PHIL BERG!!
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2008 AT 3:00 PM EST

Everyone that can, grab your signs and please be at the steps of the Supreme Court at 3:00 PM this afternoon! The things to go on the signs will be listed below. We need as large a Crowd as we can get to be waiting at the steps of Supreme Court for Mr. Berg, the person meeting him at the Train Station as well as Will Bower who will be there to accompany him there. Fox News will also be at the Train Station and will follow them all the way to the Supreme Court, filming everything.

Remember to be loud, but RESPECTFUL as this is about having the Supreme Court hear us and grant us what we are asking for, proof that Obama is eligible to run for the Office of President, our Commander In Chief. Chant Speech, Speech, Speech when you see Mr. Berg. He will either speak before he goes into the Court, unless he needs to go in immediately, if so he will speak when we comes out. He will stop and acknowledge everyone that is there and thank you for your support, if he doesn't have time for a speech right then!!

DO NOT yell anything negative about Obama. You can yell that "Obama needs to show he is eligible", Why the Secrecy Surrounding Obama", "Obama Release Certified Copies Of Your Records and Papers" and you can chant over and over "Uphold Our Constitution, Defend it, We The People Demand It".

SIGNS:

1. McCain Supporter's For The Constitution

2. Obama Supporter's For The Constitution

3. Uphold And Defend Our Constitution

4. American's For The Constitution
