Obama Campaign Secrets
The Obama Plan to Suppress McCain Voters
* True Confessions
Mainstream Media: "We'll Help Wherever We Can!"
An interesting post which confirms talk on the PUMA sites. The view from both an anonymous former Hillary staffer/Obama campaign worker and other info posted on PUMA (Party Unity My Ass) sites jive.
The main points?
- Don't believe the polls.
- Obama's campaign main goal has been to keep conservatives divided.
- Former Hillary voters are not meekly lining up behind Obama.
- Democrats are actively working for John McCain in many areas.
- The "Sarah Palin is bad" meme is wrong.
- People do care about Obama's radical associations.
Who is this anonymous Obama workers?
"First, a little personal background… I am a female grad student in my 20’s, and a registered Democrat. During the primaries, I was a campaign worker for the Clinton candidacy. I believed in her and still do, staying all the way to the bitter end. And believe me, it was bitter."
What you were never intended to know in this election:
I’m going to let you in on a few secrets here, and this is not because I enjoy the gossip or the attention directed my way. I’m doing this because I doubt much of you know the true weaknesses of Obama. Another reason for my doing this is that I am lost faith in this campaign, and feel that this choice has been forced on many people in this country. Put simply, you are being manipulated. That was and is our job – to manipulate you (the electorate) and the media (we already had them months ago). Our goal is to create chaos with the other side, not hope. I’ve come to the realization (as the campaign already has) that if this comes to the issues, Barack Obama doesn’t have a chance. His only chance is to foster disorganization, chaos, despair, and a sense of inevitability among the Republicans. It has worked up until now.
What's the Plan?

Joe the Plumber has put the focus on the issues again, and this scares us more than anything.
Conservative websites have seen an influx of Obama supporters spamming the comments section of story which are less than complimentary of BHO. There's been numerous reports of the Obama "astroturfing" (giving the impression that this orchestrated comment spamming is from the grass roots).
This seems to confirm it.
The following might sound familiar to anyone following the inane Mainstream Media coverage of Election 2008. It also confirms what DBKP, in September, called "MSM voter suppression". [Obama, Mainstream Media: MSM Actively Engaged in Voter Suppression]
From Three things the Obamedia will do to depress Republican turnout and help Obama :
This is really intended for Republicans who did not follow the primaries on the Democrats’ side this year (because, well, we guess you took a nice long Atlantis cruise to Mars, in which case, color us jealous).
The same pattern that unfolded during our primaries is happening again, because the media has just one tattered old used playbook (written by David Axelrod, of course), and they have not deviated from it yet. What the media and Obama campaign did, in concert, to Hillary Clinton before every major primary is what they are doing to McCain/Palin now. Here are the top three media/Obama head tricks to watch out for in the last days before the election.
The three things?
- (1) Calls for McCain to just give up and quit, because the race is over.
This one is a favorite of the trolls who lurk on pro-McCain sites. We get them here, despite all the spraying and fumigating we do, but notice how we ignore these trolls. We’ve identified two paid Obama staffers who have been assigned to HillBuzz. We picked them up around the same time people from Ace and LGF started picking up some of our stuff — so our guess is they were assigned to us by whoever was monitoring those sites. They’re different trolls than the ones assigned to us during the primaries (we only had one back then, so evidently we’ve gotten more on the radar now). One of them starts posting “her” concern troll remarks here at 8am. The other one starts “his” remarks around 5pm or so. It appears there are two shifts for the trolls — and from what we can see, they share the same computer and IP address. And it’s an address right here in Chicago.
- (2) Wild claims of Obama winning states that shock and surprise you.
If you do just ONE THING today, we ask you a personal favor: PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE go to as many Republican blogs as you can and WARN THEM that the Obamedia will tell you all weekend that Obama is winning Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Florida, Iowa, Virginia, West Virginia, and other states we do not believe Obama will win (except for Iowa, which we still think goes to Obama, but our best sources claim McCain now leads in internals by 1 point). They are already starting to say truly crazy things like “Obama will win Louisiana and Arkansas!”, and that’s just nuts.
- (3) Repeated insistance that blacks and young people will decide this election, and they are all going to vote in record numbers for Obama.
We, thus, believe Obama will not have much more support from blacks than Kerry did, since Democrats win almost all black voters anyway. This year will be no different.
The young may be restless, but many will not vote. Of those who do, some will vote McCain-Palin.
The anonymous Obama campaign worker's final thoughts?
"I changed my somewhat positive opinion of this campaign during the unfair and sexist campaign against Sarah Palin. I will never agree with her on the issues and will probably never vote for her, but I am embarrassed of what has happened. I can’t ignore our own hand in all of this. What I do know is that I will not be voting for Obama this time around."
DBKP said it in September: the Mainstream Media has been engaged in a massive effort of voter suppression. Their wildly-skewed pro-Obama coverage is not only evident, it's empirical.
It should be embarrassing to any so-called "journalist" in the Big Media employ.
2008: The year that the Mainstream press suppressed the John Edwards Scandal for 10 months. The year that the MSM abandoned reporting--in favor of actively campaigning for their favored candidate.
That campaign has now reached such proportions as to be labeled 'voter suppression'.
