Who is hurting Barack?

John Murtha

With friends like this you don’t need enemies.  Representative John Murtha of Pennsylvania stated that Western Pennsylvania is racist but that Barack Obama should win.  Now will this make people in Pennsylvania more or less likely to vote for Barack Obama?  This state is critical for Barack to win.  So what is Murtha doing?  Helping or hurting Barack?

Jesse Jackson

Here comes Jesse on the scene to help Barack or some would say hurt Barack.  Jesse stated recently that Israel would not be the central theme of the American foreign policy.  Jackson believes that, although “Zionists who have controlled American policy for decades” remain strong, they’ll lose a great deal of their clout when Barack Obama enters the White House.  Is this what you want someone to say when you are trying to win Floria, or New York?  It just doesn’t make sense to me.  I would say thanks but no thanks for your help.

  1. Jessie needs to stay quiet..and so does everyone else.I thought the parties were supposed to send out notes or speaking points. It seemed like after Palin was announced all of the republicans had their talking points memorized.

    The democrats need to do the same… no one needs to be making random crazy remarks right now. Last night McCain kept bringing up the remarks made by John Lewis. Barack cannot afford this type of support.

    I have to say, I am a little angry that Barack did not attack McCain a little more…he was on the defensive too much last night.
