« Obama's New Attack on Those Who Don't Want Higher Taxes: ‘Selfishness’ | Main | We the People ~ "Stand up, Stand Up Fight" »

November 01, 2008


The Washington Times reported Friday that they were notified of the Obama campaign’s decision Thursday evening — even though the paper has covered Obama from the start.

"This feels like the journalistic equivalent of redistributing the wealth, we spent hundreds of thousands of dollars covering Senator Obama’s campaign, traveling on his plane, and taking our turn in the reporter’s pool, only to have our seat given away to someone else in the last days of the campaign,” said Washington Times Executive Editor John Solomon.
“I hope the candidate that promises to unite America isn’t using a litmus test to determine who gets to cover his campaign.”


The Obama campaign has decided to heave out three newspapers from its plane for the final days of its blitz across battleground states — and all three endorsed Sen. John McCain for president!

The NY POST, WASHINGTON TIMES and DALLAS MORNING NEWS have all been told to vamoose by Sunday to make room for network bigwigs — and possibly for the inclusion of reporters from two black magazines, ESSENCE and JET, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

Despite pleas from top editors of the three newspapers that have covered the campaign for months at extraordinary cost, the Obama campaign says their reporters — and possibly others — will have to vacate their coveted seats so more power players can document the final days of Sen. Barack Obama’s historic campaign to become the first black American president.

After a week of quiet but desperate behind-the-scenes negotiations, the reporters of the three papers heard last night that they were definitely off for the final swing. They are already planning how to cover the final days by flying commercial or driving from event to event.

Wild Thing's comment.........

These three newspapers did not endorse Obama, they endorsed McCain/Palin.

The Truth Squad in MO. and PA.
Florida TV station was banned
PA TV station was banned
Joe the Plumber was investigated

The ‘Change’ is starting. All the people on the left that support FREEDOM OF SPEECH better wake and see what is going on. When Obama doesn’t like what is being said about him he freezes them out in all directions. He has 90% of the media on his side but that is still not good enough.

Obama and his Gestapo and it all began during the Primary stealing votes from Hillary with the help of the DNC and has not stopped since.

They said on FOX that the three replacing these newspapers listed in the article will be BET ( Black Entertainment Television), Essence ( Black magazine) and Ebony ( another black magazine).

He just can't play fair, can he?
Didn't he also say that if McCain took the money cap first, then he would too and then reneged on the deal?
So what if they endorsed McCain. My paper, the Omaha World Herald did too and I'm surprised. With as many liberal commentators they post, I was sure they'd go with Obama.
I can't vote for a snake oil salesman or a slick willy. I just can't.

For the inclusion of Essence and Jet magizines, gee, what happened to the Messiah transcending race. Black and liberal (1), white Liberal (2) and old number 10 , White conservative rinos.

Can you imagine if they were someone from Fox or World Net daily they wouldn't even bob the meter.

"No way, joe, you number 10"

This is from the fairness campaign. Hypocrites ...

Not only is Obama a Marxist socialist, he is a childish Marxist socialist. He is a lot like another childish dictator, Hugo Chavez.

We thought Hillary was vindictive, but Obama may make her look mild by comparison.

It is the spoils system, he truly is vindictive. The latest is that Obama has an aunt here illegally in boston and he's about to toss her under the bus too. FDR's uncle Joe has nothing on this guy. This Mau Mau Obama reminds me of another historical Democrat.

During a Congressional debate in 1831 a New York senator, William L. Marcy, used the phrase "to the victor belong the spoils." This saying accurately described the spoils system of appointing government workers. Each time a new administration came into power thousands of public servants were discharged and members of the victorious political party took over their jobs. Obama is applying that principle early on in his campaign, just think about what he'll do if he gets the presidency. Some of his loyal followers are in for a rude awakening as the Venezuelan people have found out with their 'elected' leader. Democracy has somehow become blurred to mean Democrat.

Barack Hussein Obama like all dictators and dictator wannabe's does not tolerate criticism and will do anything to shut it down. This tossing of reporters off the plane is just the latest example of the growing Obama enemies list targeted for punishment. Replacing them with members of the favorable black media is just more Obama racism in action.

It is obvious what Obama The Megalomaniac has in mind for his Civilian National Security Force.

Obama advocates an American Gestapo

Prepare to pledge allegiance and chant, "Thou Shalt Not Criticize Our Leader and Savior Barack Obama."

TomR, you're right. Hillary is nothing compared to Obama when it comes to being vindictive. Can you imagine what Obama will be like if he commands the power of the IRS?

Lynn wow that is really something, I am so glad your paper there went for McCain. It is always a big deal when a paper endorses a Republican since so many like you say have liberal writers and articles most of the time.

Mark, exactly so much for fairness. He is a control freak. yuk

Posted by: Wild Thing at November 1, 2008 06:36 PM

Cheryl, me too, I am in like some kind of a constant prayer. I do other things but my mind is always praying Obama does not win.

Posted by: Wild Thing at November 1, 2008 06:38 PM

Tom I agree, he is very childish. There is a difference in being child like, thinking young kind of thing. But childish is differnet it is being what Obama is acting like a spoiled brat, having to have his own way, the whine he does about everything etc.

This is also so true what you said...."We thought Hillary was vindictive, but Obama may make her look mild by comparison."

I bought my first computer because I was so upset with the Clinton's hahaha. But this with Obama is even worse.

Jack.ues whew he sure is vindictive.
Thanks for that about his aunt. I was reading about that this morning and some stuff about donations too. The whole thing sounds like he used her to bring in money from other illegal sources to me.

I agree about his followers too, if Obama wins and they find out he is not going to fill their gas tanks and pay their mortage and all the other crazy things they are thinking. They are not going to be happy at all. And the media too will have a big problem defending this marxists.

Posted by: Wild Thing at November 1, 2008 06:49 PM

Les, we are in such a bad way if he wins. I agree with what you said. No one will be able to say anything wrong with him like you said he will not and cannot tolerate criticism.

I was even thinking of the late night comedians if Obama wins they will have a tuff time doing jokes about Obama since he is too thin skinned about stuff like that.

Thanks for the links.

This is just giving us a taste of what an Obama regime will be like.

GM Cassel AMH1(AW) USN RETIRED, that is a good name for him and what he is too. Thank you.

Posted by: Wild Thing at November 2, 2008 12:15 AM

Miss Chris, I agree, it is scary what he could be like since he is doing this kind of thing already.

My heart really goes out to you guys in America -you are about to get a man that will drive America into the ground. He is so heady with power that he actually believes in his own spindoctors & hype. The mask has slightly fallen with his 'righteous wind' comment. His hope and change is pure spin. He is promising gullible Americans something that he won't be able to deliver. In contrast McCain only promises the people to fight for his country with everything he has. You don't promise people things that probably won't materialise. McCain is a fighter, Obama is an appeaser.

Obama is a very worrying individual - his rise to power is stunning to say the least. His campaign coffers overflow from monies coming from shadowy unseen sources. Much of it from overseas muslim sources. His contacts & friends are highly questionable. Louis Farrakan, Rev Wright, Bill Ayers, billionaire muslims, Palestinian & Pakistani connections. This is NOT what an American Presidential profile should look like. Yet the Democrats don't seem to have a problem with a Presidential candidate that openly tells the American public he will talk to our enemies with no pre-conditions. Do Democrats KNOW what that actually means???

Has anybody noticed the recent meeting between Libya's Quadaffi and Putin?? That was no accident - these two are awaiting an Obama Presidency that will be favorable to their long term plans. Obama plans to dismantle the European Defence Missile Shield. That would leave a vunerable eastern europe to a massive Russian military buildup along their borders. Obama intends to pull out of Iraq...thus leaving a fledgling democratic Iraq open to sharks like Iran's Ahmadinejad, who will gladly fuel a Shier rebellion inside the country. Obama will slowly shift American policy away from Israel , thus leaving the Jewish state in a weakened position to deal with the likes of Hezbullah and Hamas, not to mention a growing Iranian menace. Obama's gross niavety is going to sink us all. Australia included. The Islamists will only fester and grow in belligerence to a weakening West. Yes, we are slowing dying as a superpower as our enemies white - ant our own nations from within. If you doubt anything I say about this issue I URGE you all to watch this 30 minute video to what our enemies have in store for us. People like Samuel Huntington (in his book, The Clash of Civilsations) and Mark Steyn's Book, 'America Alone: The End of the World as we Know It' are stark warnings of what is to come if we don't take a stand. McCain is for taking a stand.....stand up America, fight, fight and never give in to these cretins...because if we do, our children and grandchildren will pay a dreadful price for our cowardess!!

Lyn in Australia, Lyn you are so kind to do this again. I am so sorry about my blog messing up last night.

I agree withi you McCain will fight back big time. Obama will have tea and dress up Muslim with them. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Yes, I have been watching the stuff about Quadaffi and Putin too. All these things need to be noted and kept an eye on.

The world sure is changing so fast and with Obama the terrorist lover we will never do what we should and fight them.

Thank you again so much Lyn.
