I enjoyed Rush Limbaugh's appearance on Fox and Friends this morning when he jumped right into the election fray by referring to the Democrat candidate as "The Messiah," and then ripped into the false opinion polls now being pushed by the media.
For instance, it does absolutely no good to have Real Clear Politics tell us what the "average" is of a bunch of the polls they have surveyed, when that "average" already is skewed by horrendously out-of-sync polls such as the one commissioned by the New York Times and CBS news.
That poll shows The Chosen One as Rush also refers to the Democrat, ahead by double digits. It is widely discredited since it involved interviews with a grossly over-represented sampling of Democrats and didn't determine by actual records checks whether the respondents are likely voters.
Several other media-commissioned polls are equally biased, and surprise, surprise, they all show the Democrat ahead by double digits. Yet many other polls, that never get mentioned in the American Terrorist Media, show the race either very, very close, or dead even, well within the margin of error.
More to the point, if you take all the polls done by news organizations out of the RCP sample, including FOX, and divide the result by the remaining polls it averages 3.75 percent in Obama's favor. Again when you factor in the margin of error, it means this race is tied, not at all a done deal, and it certainly doesn't show Obama running away with it.
That 1 percent spread, or statistical tie, oddly enough is the result that Investors Business Daily came up with, and that organization was the most accurate of all the polling organizations in the Bush Kerry race, which also was marked by manipulative polling from the news organizations.
But with all the chaos on the campaign trail, the other big news isn't what the Chosen One is doing to convince Americans to vote for him. It is that the Democrat candidate is heading to Hawaii, supposedly to visit his critically ill grandmother, who suffered a broken hip in a fall about a week ago.
We have been hearing ever since that unfortunate accident that Himself was "rushing" to her side, but not so fast that he couldn't stop to do some smarmy interviews with his propagandists in the mainstream media. Somehow, he also forgot to take his wife and children with him.
I find that odd, since about a decade ago I had a sense that my father wasn't going to life much longer. He seemed to have lost his spark of liveliness, his color wasn't good and his attitude wasn't either. I told my son, who was living more than a thousand miles away, that it would be a good thing for him to get back to see my dad, as it probably would be his last chance.
I was right, it was, but my son did get to visit his grandfather and has always been grateful that he did.
So why, with all the money in the world at his disposal, didn't The Democrat take his family to see his grandmother one last time?
Maybe, just maybe there is more to this story, such as the lawsuit that has been filed against him in Honolulu demanding that he prove he has a legal American birth certificate and is a legal American citizen and therefore is a legitimate candidate for president of the United States.
The Democrat already has defaulted on appearing to answer a federal lawsuit seeking the same information in Philadelphia, and according to some legal analysts therefore has already been judged to be unqualified for the office of president.
So, what is really going on in Hawaii? Is The Democrat going specifically to see his grandmother, or is her condition just a convenient excuse to answer a subpoena? And what about these lawsuits?
If this man, as a candidate for President of the United States, can make a big deal out of a plumber's license, why are we not supposed to make a big deal out of a birth certificate, which after all is the one piece of proof that everyone needs if they want to run for president.
Hey, Mr. Democrat presidential candidate - Joe will show you his (license) if you show him yours (birth certificate.) Sounds like a good trade to me.
