WASHINGTON — Al-Qaida supporters suggested in a Web site message this week they would welcome a pre-election terror attack on the U.S. as a way to usher in a McCain presidency.
The message, posted Monday on the password-protected al-Hesbah Web site, said if al-Qaida wants to exhaust the United States militarily and economically, “impetuous” Sen. John McCain is the better choice because he is more likely to continue the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
“This requires presence of an impetuous American leader such as McCain, who pledged to continue the war till the last American soldier,” the message said. “Then, al-Qaida will have to support McCain in the coming elections so that he continues the failing march of his predecessor, Bush.”
SITE Intelligence Group, based in Bethesda, Md., monitors the Web site and translated the message.
Not surprising, eh?
A new CNN poll of poll suggests that Obama’s lead over McCain has dropped by 2 points, from 8 to just 6. That means a red-alert for everyone supporting Obama. Gear up once more, guys, and lets make this Presidency happen…! Spread the good word around…

Break their back, crush their spirits

See, here’s the deal — we’re going to win the White House, we’re going to win big in the Senate, and we’re going to rack up big gains in the House. Republicans know this and are preparing for the worst. Now think of 2004 — we really thought Kerry was going to pull it off. Remember that? And remember how utterly devastated we were when Bush pulled it off? The pain was so much worse because we expected to win.
So with conservatives bracing for the worse, they won’t experience the kind of pain we did. Not unless we deliver a defeat even worse than their worst nightmares. And I’ll be honest with you — I want them to hurt as much as we did. I want their spirits crushed, their backs broken.
So the way we do that is we deliver a defeat worse than they ever imagined. We do that by winning states that have no business turning Blue — like North Carolina, Georgia, Indiana, and so on — states that were easy Bush victories in 2004. We do that by electing a 60-seat supermajority in the Senate. We do that by defeating their leadership, like Mitch McConnell in the Senate. We do that by defeating their heroes, like wingnut go-to hero John Shadegg. We do that by making sure a record number of Americans reject conservative ideology, leaving it utterly discredited.
The day after the election, I want to see an electoral battlefield littered with defeated Republicans, their ranks demoralized, their treasury in heavy debt, and no real leadership to take the helm. I want a vacuum so complete, that a bloody leadership battle between the neocons, theocons, and corporate cons shakes the GOP to its core, and leaves it fractured and ill-equipped to stymie the progressive agenda, much less ramp up for an even bleaker (for them) 2010.
Guys, that’s why I don’t worry about complacency. We’re not out to win this thing. We’re out to crush them. And that’s going to require a level of engagement beyond anything you’ve ever done before. It’ll mean more phone banking, more canvassing, more donating. Work on this site keeps me from working the phones or walking precincts (my wife has helped out on those fronts), but I’ve surrendered a significant portion of my income, way more than my family can really afford, on behalf of the cause. We’ve all got something to offer, whether it’s time or money, and now’s the time to offer what we can.
One of my favorite cyclists likes to say, “Leave everything on the road”, meaning that when he crosses the finish line, he will have burned every last ounce of energy in his body. If he falls short? No regrets because he gave it his all, every last bit of it.
We can’t have regrets on Election Night, thinking that some Democrats came up short because we failed to leave everything on the road. We can’t have a Jim Martin or a Bob Lord or a Darcy Burner or whoever come inches from victory, knowing that maybe we could’ve done just a little bit more to help them cross the finish line victorious. Even if all you can give is $5 to one candidate, or one afternoon phone banking, it still matters. There’s a lot of us, and a lot of little gestures adds up to a whole lot of action.
We are approaching a historic night, and one that can radically transform the direction of our country.
Donate your time, donate your money.
Leave everything on the road.
When Jimmy Carter arrived at the White House: $660 billion.
Added during Carter’s four years: $337 billion.
Added during Ronald Reagan’s eight years: $1.6 trillion.
Added during George H. W. Bush’s four years: $1.6 trillion.
Added during Bill Clinton’s eight years: $1.5 trillion.
Added during George W. Bush’s seven years, nine months: $4.5 trillion.
Portion of the $9.5 trillion added to the national debt during the past 31 years and seven months that came during Republican presidencies: $7.7 trillion.
Percentage of that $7.7 trillion added during George W. Bush’s two terms: 58%.
Could somebody explain again what “fiscal conservative” means?
Thats the simple answer.
Obama has a purpose, has a vision for America. McCain has none. Obama’s supporters have a purpose. They understand how crucial this election is. The moment McCain goes up in polls, the Obama base gears up with a higher sense of urgency. They knock on doors, rally on streets, call up their neighbors and feel ever more responsible for putting Obama in the White House.
What happens when Obama goes up in polls? The McCain voters get worried and dejected. Most of them have given up the hope of winning the White House. The only solution they see is bringing doen Obama by destroying his character, and muddying his background. This anxiety is because McCain has laid out no vision for America. He has no purpose in going to the White House other than being the powerful President. No specific plans, no specific goals, no sense of urgency.
I feel ever more confident now that Obama is going to the White House. Even if McCain launches his sly tirade against Obama’s character. He has been really successful in tapping the latent power of the people. That is exactly what democracy is about. Obama and his campaign has become like that “Punch-Me” bob. The more you hit it on its nose, the more wildly will it swing up and hit you back.
