I have this feeling of dread

Hillary Clinton. Barack Obama. DNC Rules committee. Saturday. Let’s get ready to fumble!!!

The Democratic party is on the verge of doing a Leon Lett. Leon Lett was the talented defensive tackle for the Dallas Cowboys in the early to mid-90’s. In the Super Bowl, Leon picked up a fumble and ran about 60 yards to a sure touchdown. He held the football out in his right hand to begin the celebration. Don Bebe, one of the fastest men in the NFL, came from nowhere and swatted the ball out of Leon’s hand and thru it to the back of the endzone. No touchdown.

The country is sick and tired of George W. Bush and the Republicans. We, Americans, are ready to vote for almost anyone who doesn’t have an “R” after his/her name. A fight on the floor of the Democratic convention will be a deal breaker. I don’t know how we are going to choose a Democratic nominee. I thought we were going to choose by elected delegates but maybe I’m wrong. I have gotten to the point that I really don’t care any more. We have to choose. We can choose someone else. Dennis Kucinich or Mike Gravel. We can do it by flipping a coin or by Ouija board. We just have to choose someone and choose NOW before we end up like Leon Lett, fumbling the ball at the 1 yard line.

You feel like the dem party is going to steal it from Obama? Nope ain't gonna happen. We need to let it sink in --- Obama has run a well organized machine and while we get yanked around emotionally by the MSM as we follow this race. His team has it under control.

Obama has the nomination, that's certain. But I'm tired of hearing people who profess to be "true" or "diehard" Democrats talking about voting for McCain. The Clinton protesters at that event (I'm not saying they represent all Clinton backers) sickened me.

The Republicrat Party elite may not steal the nomination from Obama outright, but they seem to be intent on stealing the General Election.

I have had the same feeling of dread for the past several months; ever since Liberal voters allowed the media to choose their two frontrunners. Now the Dems find themselves in a less than ideal position on the eve of the General Election fight. They are headed for a repeat of 1968, 72, and 80.

I saw that circus at the bylaws committee meeting.... It was pathetic. The Clinton folks had no logic or precedent to stand on, yet they wanted everything to go their way. The sense of entitlement is unbelievable.
