http://www.myspace.com/nc4hillary.com

Hope to finish this site up this weekend! ----------------- On Sunday March 9 we held a lively meet up and started a spirited and sometimes surprising discussion. The range of views expressed were varied, but we all had one thing in common, our sincere belief Hillary is the best possible person for the presidency right now. During our meeting we learned that one of our ranks has access to some very useful information that will allow us to begin cold calling on voters in our own area. Please be in contact if you would like begin calling on folks in your own towns and neighborhoods. We also began an email list through which we will keep in touch, please notify me if you would like to be added. Please check back here often for updates!

Obama's Fairytales

Obama's NEW Kind of Politics = FAIRYTALES

FAIRYTALE #1 - He will usher in a new kind of politics, get past the politics of division; "a uniter not a divider" .... uh huh, yeah riiiiigt... but ... in the real world, as the Right Wing Repub Smear Machine has already begun to demonstrate it takes TWO to tango and the Right Wing Repubs are going to be just as negative and nasty to him as they have been to the Clintons all these years.

Ok.... WHERE IS IT? I haven't seen him DO any kind of "NEW" Politics. All he's done is the same old negative campaigning, name-calling, and personal attacks .... AFTER .... FIRST... proclaiming he wouldn't do negative campaigning .... and bragging about being .... better than that, above it all. He's continued with the same ol dirty politics ever since .... while periodically PROCLAIMING that he's not doing dirty politics ... and bragging that he's above it all.

"New Kind of Politics" = NON -ISSUE. DISMISSED.

FAIRYTALE #2: Its about JUDGMENT (& His Judgment is best): "Hillary voted to INVADE Iraq". "She was in favor of the war". .... uh, Noooo, she voted to use MILITARY FORCE, if necessary, to find out if Saddam had WMD's, or Not. Quoting Obama: "I don't know how I would have voted if I had been in the Senate."

Welllll .... IF it was a Vote to INVADE Iraq ... and ... he was opposed to invading Iraq ... how come... he doesn't know how he would have voted?

Answer: Because HE KNOWS it WAS NOT a Vote to Invade Iraq. Having said that he doesn't know how he would have voted -THAT- should have been the END of that: NOT Entitled to Criticize Clinton for her Vote. He is using the very same negative distortion and smear campaigning that he so hypocritically denounces.
"HIS JUDGMENT is best = NON-Issue. DISMISSED.

FAIRYTALE #3: "I'm not the black candidate". Yes. He is the black candidate. He MADE HIMSELF the black candidate WHEN he FALSELY (& ridiculously) accused the Clintons of racism - in order to win the South Carolina Primary. He CONTINUED to make himself the black candidate by making MORE false accusations of racism ... everytime ... he got behind in the the polls.
RACISM= NON-ISSUE. DISMISSED.

FAIRYTALE #4: Clinton is the Establishment Candidate. Clinton is in league with the Big Corporations that have too much control over our government.

Clinton voted AGAINST the Dick Cheney Energy Bill of 2005 (H.R.6). Obama voted FOR it. GE (2nd Largest Corporation on earth), Excelon Corp of Illinois, Entergy, along with 3 consortiums of other corporations - want to build 29 new nuclear power plants.

For the past 30 years the banks would not loan them money to build nukes - too risky....until The Cheney Energy Bill ENABLED them to proceed with their plans ... by Guaranteeing TAXPAYER PAYBACK of any of the nuke loans that go into default. (With the Risk of Default Rated by the Congressional Budget Office at 50% or greater.)

p.s. the BOP-N (the "boppin" B.arack O.bama P.ropaganda N.etworks)-(Formerly known as NBC/MSNBC) ... are owned by GE ... just in case you were wondering WHY MSNBC/NBC were transformed (last fall) into foaming at the mouth rabid Obama PUSHERS. OBAMA = The Establishment Candidate.

FAIRYTALE #5: Its about the future, turn the page. Nope. Its about TURNING THE PAGE ...BACK... to the PAST
building CENTRALIZED Monopoly Nuke Power Plants - with thousands of tons more nuke waste; with all existing nuke waste dumps CLOSED; nuke waste stored ONSITE providing terrorists with DIRTY BOMB nuke TARGETS all over the country .... instead OF Proceeding to the FUTURE with CLEAN, Renewable, DE-Centralized, CHEAPER Energy.

FAIRYTALE #6: Better Foreign Policy: Electing Obama will "send a message" to the rest of the world ... enhancing America's "image" ... as a new kind of country ... ready to get along ... and do things differently.

Wanna put the rest of the world on notice that U.S. Foreign Policy will very likely be just as insane, or insaner, than Bush/Cheney's ... and ... put Russia on an even more nervous HAIR TRIGGER than ithey are now. .... just elect Obama and that's what would happen ....Because .... Zbigniew Brezinski is an Obama Foreign Policy Advisor.

Zbig used Billions of $$$$$$ and the CIA to gin up a War in Afghanistan between the Russians and the Taliban/Al Queda
(because he rabidly hates Russia).

He CREATED the Taliban/Al Queda/ JIHAD Muslim TERRORIST "movement". He supported Pol Pot ... who massacred MILLIONS of innocent Cambodian Villagers. Asked if he had any REGRETS about creating the JIHADI'S, or supporting Pol Pot; given the benefit of hindsight does he wish he would he have done anything differently? Zbig's answers: No. No Regrets. Wish he'd done anything differently? No, he's satisfied with the results.

Elect a man President on the basis of such FAIRYTALES --- NIGHTMARES are likely to follow.

(I posted the above on a Washington Post blog - written from my own conclusions reached after watching several hours per day of TV News coverage of the primaries & reading on the Internet - since last fall. That same day I went to Hillary's website and found an excellent article titled "Three Myths" ... I will post a copy of that article next.)

Three Myths

MYTH: Barack Obama is running a positive campaign that will unite Americans.

FACT: Barack Obama and his advisers have conducted a divisive "full assault" on Hillary's character.

While talking a lot about the politics of hope, change and unity, Sen. Obama and his campaign have been conducting a relentless and singularly personal assault on Hillary's character. They have blanketed big states with false negative mailers and radio ads and have described Hillary and her campaign as "disingenuous," "divisive," "untruthful," "dishonest," "polarizing," "calculating," "saying whatever it takes to win," "attempting to deceive the American people," "one of the most secretive in America," “deliberately misleading,” “literally willing to do anything to win,” and “playing politics with war."

This "full assault" on Hillary's integrity and character has reached a new peak since Hillary's victories on March 4th. One of Sen. Obama's top surrogates equated President Clinton with Joe McCarthy; another called Hillary a "monster;" and his campaign manager held an angry conference call claiming that Hillary is "deeply flawed" and has "character issues." That's neither unifying nor hopeful. If Sen. Obama really is the prohibitive favorite some say he is, these negative attacks make absolutely no sense. Why would a frontrunner seek to attack and divide? If Sen. Obama can't unify Democrats in a primary, how can he unify Americans in a general election?

=====

MYTH: The delegate "math" works decisively against Hillary.

FACT: The delegate math reflects an extremely close race that either candidate can win.

"The Math" is actually very simple: with hundreds of delegates still uncommitted, NEITHER candidate has reached the number of delegates required to secure the nomination. And EITHER candidate can reach the required number in the coming weeks and months. That is indisputable. No amount of editorials, articles, blog posts, charts, graphs, calculations, formulas, or projections will change the basic fact that either candidate can win. Pundits who confidently proclaim that Hillary has no hope of winning because of "the math," have counted Hillary out of this race three times before. Each time they based their sober assessments on 'facts' and 'realities' -- and each time they were wrong.

In a campaign with dozens of unexpected twists and turns, bold prognostications should be viewed with a healthy dose of skepticism. Look no further than Sen. Obama's "full assault" on Hillary's character to judge whether he thinks this election is over. The fact is this: Hillary and Sen. Obama are locked in a very close, hard-fought campaign and Hillary is demonstrating precisely the strength of character required of a president. Her resilience in the face of adversity, her faith in the voters, her capacity to rise to every challenge, are part of the reason she is the best general election candidate for Democrats. And it is why she is increasingly strong against John McCain in the polls at the same time that Sen. Obama is dropping against Sen. McCain.

=====

MYTH: For Hillary to win, super delegates must "overturn the will of the people."

FACT: The race is virtually tied, the "will of the people" is split, and both candidates need super delegates to win.

The Obama campaign and Sen. Obama's surrogates have engaged in a sustained public relations effort to convince people that the election is over and that if super delegates perform their established role of choosing a candidate who they believe will make the best nominee and president, they are somehow "overturning the will of the people." They have the audacity to make this argument while quietly and systematically courting those very same super delegates. They are courting them because they know that Sen. Obama needs super delegates to win. The Obama spin is being parroted daily by pundits, but it is patently false. The race is virtually tied; the "will of the people" is split. By virtually every measure, Hillary and Sen. Obama are neck and neck -- separated by less than 130 of the more than 3,100 delegates committed thus far and less than 1% of the 27 million+ votes cast, including Florida and Michigan. Less than 1%.

An incremental advantage for one candidate or the other is hardly a reason for super delegates to change the rules mid-game. Despite the Obama campaign's aggressive spin and pressure, the RULES require super delegates to exercise their best independent judgment, and that is what they will do. Even Sen. Obama's top strategist agrees they should. If not, then why don't prominent Obama endorsers like Senators Kerry (MA) and Kennedy (MA), and Governors Patrick (MA), Napolitano (AZ) and Richardson (NM) follow the will of their constituents and switch their support to Hillary? After all, she won their states. And if this is truly about the "will of the people," then Sen. Obama's short-sighted tactic to run out the clock on a revote in Florida and Michigan accomplishes exactly two things: it disenfranchises Florida and Michigan's voters; and it hurts Democrats in a general election. Apparently, for the Obama campaign, the "will of the people" is just words.
