Alaska’s Top Newspaper Endorses Obama

The Anchorage Daily News has endorsed Barack Obama for POTUS. In the opinion of their editorial board, McCain is not the right person to serve as president at this time and neither is their own governor, Sarah Palin.

Alaskans may or may not agree with the editorial board. There are several newspapers that have endorsed Obama. Currently Obama leads in newspaper endorsements 145-55. McCain must be feeling a bit like Hillary Clinton did during the Primary. Obama has consistently outsmarted and out-performed his opponents in spite of their length of time in politics.

 


As the Political World Turns

I've been volunteering at one of the local Obama-Biden campaign offices so my blogging time has been even more limited. The foolishness and other news that has occurred lately have been fast-paced. Just as I was going to post the Colin Powell interview with "Meet the Press" when he nicely sliced and diced John McCain, then this chick Ashley Todd acts the fool and tries to pull a major punking of American voters by blaming a black man for attacking her. There have been reports of vandalism in neighborhoods regarding yard signs supporting either Obama or McCain. Foolishness.

Let's not forget the cost of outfitting Six Pack Sarah and her crew. Let's see, $150,000 and not a damn thing from Wal-mart? Wonder what Joe the Plumber has to say about that.

The Barack Obama campaign has raised over $700 million and McCain and his operatives criticize him for not participating in the public campaign finance program. Uh huh.

Speaking of Sarah Palin, she seems to be distancing herself from McCain just as he tries to do President Bush. She is openly disagreeing with McCain's position on issues. I do believe that she's campaigning for her next position --- Palin for President in 2012. She is the one drawing the Republican crowds. Hey, that's what happens when you choose a maverick as your running mate. Ha!

 


Early Voting Could Signal Democratic Win in Florida

We are on Day 3 of early voting in Florida. One would think it is November 4 based on the number of people lined up to vote throughout   South Florida. New machines have been added to some polling places and voters have waited for hours --- 2, 3, 4 up to 6 hours to cast their ballot. At one site, voters started lining up at 4 in the morning for a voting that opens at 7. This is serious business; it is expected that this will be the highest voter turnout ever.

With Democrats outnumbering Republicans by more than 650,000 registered voters this year, it is very likely that Obama-Biden will carry Florida this year.

Obama Fundraising Astounding

I find it difficult to even write Barack Obama's obscene fundraising numbers for September. $150 M? Are you kidding? How in the world can his team raise that much money, let alone in one month?

And to hear McCain and his operatives twist Obama's spending on campaign ads is laughable at best. Yeah, diss B.O. if ya want, he would have been insane for accepting traditional public campaign financing. As a matter of fact, his contributions represent public financing at its best. Donations in varying amounts from millions of supporters is astounding.

Early voting has started in my state and the negative campaign ads have increased. This race will get intense over the next two weeks and prayerfully all of the votes cast will be counted.

Please get out and vote. Know the platform of the candidates you support and vote intelligently.
