Two More Reason why McCain/Palin are Surging … Lynn Forester de Rothschild back Ticket & Kathleen Sebelius Calls Repubs Racists
There are many factors that go into the McCain/Palin surge in the polls and their now appeal with everyday Americans as opposed to what appears to be the sinking ship of the Obama campaign. Polls can lie; however, trends do not. There is no question that the turning point of the 2008 campaign for the White House was McCain’s bold choice of change in picking Palin as his VP vs. the same old political pick by Obama. However, time has passed since Palin was announced to America and The Palin Phenomenon has legs …
The latest positive news for the McCain/Palin ticket is longtime Hillary Clinton supporter Lynn Forester de Rothschild will announce her backing of McCain. OUCH!, this one is going to leave a mark in the backside of Team Obama. If any one really wondered where Hillary Clinton’s heart is in this campaign, they need look no further than Lynn Forester de Rothschild comments. Just how many Hillary supporters feel the same way and will vote for McCain/Palin as well. As Blue Crab Boulevard states, this is a big defection in the Democratic camp.
Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a prominent Hillary Clinton supporter and member of the Democratic National Committee’s Platform Committee, will endorse John McCain for president on Wednesday, her spokesman tells CNN.
The announcement will take place at a news conference on Capitol Hill, just blocks away from the DNC headquarters. Forester will “campaign and help him through the election,” the spokesman said of her plans to help the Republican presidential nominee.
“This is a hard decision for me personally because frankly I don’t like him,” she said of Obama in an interview with CNN’s Joe Johns. “I feel like he is an elitist. I feel like he has not given me reason to trust him.”
Then there is the continual negative use of the race card by the Democrats that will sink the Obama campaign. This time it was Obama surrogate, Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius who played the race card. When will Democrats understand that their play book is old and tired and the American people are sick and tired of the party that cried “racist” wolf. According to Hot Air in an update, the MSM is even trying to back track and cover up the comments made by Sebelius.
Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius accused Republicans on Tuesday of injecting race into the presidential campaign, arguing that they are using “code language” to convince Midwesterners that Democrat Barack Obama is different from them.
“Have any of you noticed that Barack Obama is part African-American?” Sebelius asked with sarcasm. “(Republicans) are not going to go lightly into the darkness.”
Newsbusters: ‘Bitter’ Campbell Brown Brought to Heel by Lynn Forester de Rothschild
In an interview Thursday, Miguel D. Lausell, a Puerto Rican businessman and longtime Democratic activist and fund-raiser, came out for Sen. McCain. While he said he doesn’t agree with all the policy positions of the Republican candidate and his running mate, Sarah Palin, Mr. Lausell added: “I find McCain to be a sound person and a man with a track record. I know where he is coming from.” Mr. Lausell had been a major backer of Bill Clinton and served as a senior political adviser to Sen. Clinton’s unsuccessful bid this year for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Mr. Lausell said he feels Sen. Obama “doesn’t really regard the Hispanic community as important.” Sen. Clinton won a large majority of the Hispanic vote in most primaries, and Latino voters are an important bloc in swing states such as Florida, Nevada and New Mexico. Most polls show Sen. Obama leads Sen. McCain among Latinos.
