Straight Talk From Radarsite: The Scandals Don't Matter

Reuters C-SPAN Zogby Poll: Obama Widens Lead To 6 Points Over McCain

October 12th, 2008 By JOE GANDELMAN, Editor-In-Chief

A new Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby poll finds that Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama has widened his lead over Republican Sen. John McCain to six points which is outside the margin of error - -the latest in a series of polls showing McCain increasingly trailing the Illinois Senator:

Democratic Party presidential nominee Barack Obama took a step into rarified air this morning, standing for the first time outside the statistical margin of error in a Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby likely voter poll. The survey shows him moving into a statistically significant edge of 6.1 percentage points over Republican John McCain in the latest nationwide sample.

The rolling telephone tracking poll, including a sample of 1,206 likely voters collected over the previous three 24-hour periods spanning four calendar days - approximately 400 per 24-hour period from Oct. 8-11, 2008 - shows Obama’s lead growing from the 3.8 percentage points he enjoyed yesterday.

The biggest development of the last 24 hours in terms of the poll was Obama’s strong move among independent voters, where he now leads McCain by 21 percentage points, roughly doubling his support from just the day before.

Among Democrats, Obama wins 85% support, while McCain wins 86% support among Republicans. It is an interesting side note that McCain is winning more support from Democrats (10%) than Obama is winning from Republicans (8%), but the edge is insignificant.

Some straight talk from Radarsite: Below is yet another article about yet another Obama scandal, his overt support for a brutal Islamist supporting dictator intent on introducing and enforcing strict sharia law into Kenya. This, as you all know by now, is just the latest in a whole incredible series of major scandals involving presidential candidate Barack Obama, any one of which, in normal times, would be more than sufficient to bring a candidate's campaign to a crashing halt. But of course these are not normal times, are they folks?

Above are the latest results from the Reuters/ C-Span/ Zogby poll wherein Obama maintains his comfortable 6 point lead over McCain. Odinga, Rezko, Ayers, Wright, Acorn, the Iraq manipulations, his close ties to the corrupt Chicago political machine, his questionable ties to Muslims and Islamic terrorists, his wife's glaringly anti-white American statements -- all of these shocking exposes and more together add their undeniable negative weight to one side of the scale. Yet, incredibly, even all together they are not enough to tilt the scales, they are still of insufficient weight. For on the other side of this improbable scale sits that enormous immovable bulk of blind irrational Obama support that borders on mass hysteria. It remains untouched, immune to attack and impervious to truth.

While we who are not blinded to reason, who still believe in America, grasp at moral straws, hoping beyond hope that this latest scandal, this newest outrage, will finally do the trick. That somehow, before it really is too late, the gullible American people will finally wake up and see the light, will finally see this dangerous charlatan for what he truly is and for what he most assuredly represents -- which is nothing less than the death of America. The death of the America we know and love.

But as the moments tick by and we get closer and closer to that fateful day in November, inexplicably nothing changes. He remains unscathed by it all. Half, or more than half, of this credulous country of ours wants to believe in the deadly dream that is Obama and they will not be dissuaded by mere facts. They are, it is clearly evident, determined to accept responsibility for America's long list of crimes and failures and resolved to change what it means to be an American. And, God help us, if Obama wins the presidency, they will indeed change what it means to be an American. Perhaps forever.

Perhaps I'm wrong, perhaps I've become prematurely cynical and fatalistic. I want to be wrong. I want to believe. Perhaps this latest Odinga outrage detailed below will finally 'do the trick'. Or, if not this one, maybe one of those others will suddenly take on the moral weight it so richly deserves and the American people will belatedly come to their senses. Read and decide for yourselves. Is enough enough yet? - rg

Barack Obama's relationship with Kenyan Raila Odinga has made it into America's mainstream press.

Sunday, October 12, 2008

Here is an American account of the blood on the hands of Raila Odinga, who Obama campaigned for in Kenya.Here is an American account of the agreement Odinga signed with the Muslim Leadership Forum which would have forever changed the lives of Christians in the country as well as the lives of the non-religious.
Here is an American account of the time Obama spent with Odinga.Here is an American account of the close personal ties between Barack Obama's father and Raila Odinga's father. Read the entire article at the The Washington Times.

Follows some snippets:
Mr. Odinga had the backing of Kenya's Muslim community heading into the election. For months he denied any ties to Muslim leaders, but fell silent when Sheik Abdullahi Abdi, chairman of the National Muslim Leaders Forum, appeared on Kenya television displaying a memorandum of understanding signed on Aug. 29, 2007, by Mr. Odinga and the Muslim leader. Mr. Odinga then denied his denials.The details of the MOU [Memorandum of Understanding] were shocking. In return for Muslim backing, Mr. Odinga promised to impose a number of measures favored by Muslims if he were elected president. Among these were recognition of "Islam as the only true religion," Islamic leaders would have an "oversight role to monitor activities of ALL other religions [emphasis in original]," installation of Shariah courts in every jurisdiction, a ban on Christian preaching, replacement of the police commissioner who "allowed himself to be used by heathens and Zionists," adoption of a women's dress code, and bans on alcohol and pork.

Thanks to commenter CC


  1. Hey rg, I've been commenting here the past week--you run a good site, so I give m support--and you know I feel the same way. Have you read DJ Drummond? A LITTLE ray of hope:


  2. To CC -Thanks for that. I've added that link to the article.

  3. People only believe what the media tells them to believe, not the truth.

    Obama may be the first US President to serve his term of office from a jail cell instead of the White House.

  4. findalis..well said in people only believe what the media tells them to true is that. It's so unfortunate that America has too many idiots who are uninformed and/or just don't care enough to look into things on their own. I believe enough Americans forgot what our nation truly represents. Too many people are more concerned about receiving "entitlements," which the constitution never mentions or suggest people are entitled to things from the govt. Our great country is all about opportunity for the people. And just because some people are not driven or have determination, goals and direction. Doesn't mean the people who do have those qualities should have to provide for them. These people are simply lazy and unwilling to achieve on their own.

  5. I have to agree with anon. There is too much of an entitlement mentality in this country, and it's really quite disturbing.

    I have my own thoughts on what an Obama presidency will bring us, and honestly I don't think there is going to be much difference under a McCain presidency: They will claim we "stole" the election again (even though they sat on their tukuses for 8 years without changing the system they blamed for this "fraud"), and there will be riots and worse. The signs are there, the statements have been made both thinly veiled and blatantly, and something just smells funny about this whole situation. I find it disturbing that the worse he is proven as a candidate the MORE support he garners. I blame the media, in a hand-holding effort with the Congress, for the "coverage" provided this season and others. They want only a two-party system and they're going to get what they want even if it means distorting everything. I find it appalling that ALL coverage by the media is biased and frankly opinionated, turning all supposed "news" reports into editorial commentary.

    Where's the justice in that? Where's the democracy in that? Is it any wonder we're as screwed up as we are?

  6. Roger, I think a bit of what we are dealing with here is desensitization. I, personally, think that one of the most damning pieces on Obama was the Reverend Wright scandal. Those videos of Wright screaming "G_d damn America" were shocking and powerful and Obama's response that he never heard him say those things was weak, very weak.

    But if you remember, that came out during the Dem campaign and Hillary Clinton let it lie that..she wouldn't touch it and at that point the MSM didn't touch it either. I guess Republicans at that point couldn't really zero in on it as Clinton could have used attacks if she got the nod.

    So, since that "bomb" was dropped and literally Obama paid no price, all that has come along since has been desensitized. I hardly believe ANYTHING could come up between now and the election that is going to bring Obama down. One simply has to hope that Americans really think as they reach for that lever.

  7. All we can hope for at this stage is that people study the facts of the matter, think long and hard and then do the right thing. If Americans don't come to their senses pretty soon, I really worry for all of us...every living breathing American, no matter race creed or color...we have to stand together...

  8. I can feel the tension in the voices of the commenters here.

    I see so much commensense in the blogs. I keep reminding myself that the exit polls were grossly wrong in the last election. The media had no doubt that Kerry would win, and we heard about it every hour on the hour.

    I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but I'll die thinking that the financial crisis was planned for October. We went to bed one night, got up the next morning and another domestic terrorist act by our financial gurus.

    I haven't followed all of Pamela's links but I'm off to do it now.

  9. Saw this on -- should be VERY interesting to see what these documents contain between Odinga and Obama.

  10. As well as this..
