Lets face it, Americans have this weird disease where they can only love something so much before a switch goes off in their heads and they decide "ok, now I hate it." Do you think that will happen with Obama? He's huge now, but there's still a long way to go before the election. Do you think people will be all Obamaed out by November? Will his enormous popularity be a drawback in the end? Let's ponder and discuss.

"When is there going to be an Obama backlash" is a better question. I like the guy, but I've found some of his statements to be arrogant. I still think he's probably the best man for the job though.

I don't think someone could run for President if he or she didn't have at least some amount of arrogance.

Very true. Anyone who thinks they're qualified to run the most powerful country in the world probably has a very high opinion of themself.

Yes, it will happen.

Once talk radio paints him as a left-wing lunatic, Obama will have to prove he's simply a good public servant. Then the mainstream media (with several months to kill before November) will really hammer any inconsistencies in his record or his speeches, and that may lead to something if he doesn't handle it right. Finally, McCain will talk constantly about Obama's thin level of experience, and Obama will have to prove he's got some heft and substance. If he continues to talk about change and vision, but can't get practical about health care and Iraq and the budget, the glow will be off. The public will start to wonder if he's indeed got his head in the clouds.

I personally think he's too smart to get dragged down by any one type of negativity. As long as he realizes he has to sell himself hard everyday until election day, he should be okay.

Not really. If there had been better Democratic candidates, maybe it would have been more of a contentious struggle, but overall the country likes what it sees in him.

75% of the country can't wait for Bush and the Republicans to be out of office.

McCain's a dead man walking.

Even if they do begin to suffer from Obama fatigue as the election wears on, that's not going to change.

I don't know if there will be a backlash, but I don't think he will have smooth sailing either. To the extent that his appeal is based on his being the messiah to some of his supporters - cynicism is likely to set in and much of that will wear off.

At the same time, there are a lot of pragmatic reasons to support Obama and it looks like McCain will have a tough time as well, so he may well survive the inevitable wearing out of his overly-enthusiastic welcome.

If he can keep up some of the turn-out he's driving come November, he's pretty much untouchable. Maybe the young people that he's inspired will stay motivated through the rest of the year. Maybe not.

it is starting already, but if he can handle himself like he does in this article, he will be fine:


Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., defended himself from charges by conservatives that he isn't sufficiently patriotic, a theme developing in the Republican world that could tarnish the Democrat in the general election. "There's always some nonsense going on in general elections," Obama told ABC News at a press availability in Lorain, Ohio. "If it wasn't this, it would be something else. I mean, as you will recall, first it was my name. Right? That was a problem. And then there was the Muslim e-mail thing and that stuff hasn't worked out so well. And now it's the patriotism thing."

Asked by ABC News how he could combat the accusations, Obama said, "The way I will respond to it is with the truth -- that I owe everything I am to this country. You will recall the reason I came to national attention was a speech in which I spoke of my love for this country."

Republicans have been stringing together events in the past year to paint Obama as unpatriotic:

A Time magazine photograph from an event in Iowa last summer showed Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., and New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson with their hands on their hearts during the singing of the national anthem. Obama's hands were by his side.

Months later, Obama told an Iowa television station that he no longer wore an American flag lapel pin because it had become, in some ways, "a substitute for, I think, true patriotism."

Then last week Obama's wife Michelle told voters in Milwaukee, "For the first time in my adult life, I am really proud of my country. Not just because Barack is doing well, but I think people are hungry for change."

After that comment, Cindy McCain, the wife of presumed GOP nominee Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., told a crowd, "I have, and always will be, proud of my country."

As happened with Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., and the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, a conservative campaign may be emerging to tarnish Obama.

"The reason it hasn't been an issue so far is that we're still in the microcosm of the Democratic primary," Republican consultant Roger Stone told the Associated Press. "Many Americans will find the three things offensive. Barack Obama is out of the McGovern wing of the party, and he is part of the blame-America-first crowd."

Obama said today that, "The notion that I am disqualified because at one event I was signing the national anthem but failed to put my hand over my heart while I was singing, if that were the case that would disqualify about three fourths of people who have ever gone to a football game or a baseball game."

About his wife's comments in Wisconsin, Obama said, "I think she already clarified this. She was very clear about it. She simply misspoke. Because what she was referring to is this was the first time she'd been proud of politics in America. And that's true for a lot of folks who had been cynical and disenchanted. She spoke about how she'd been cynical of American politics for a very long time, but she's proud of how people are participating and involved in ways they haven't for a very long time."

On the American flag lapel pin, Obama said, "When we start getting into those definitions of patriotism, that's a debate I'm happy to have, because I will come right after them."

Obama said he would argue that the GOP is "a party that presided over a war in which our troops did not get the body armor that they needed or [sent] troops over who were untrained because of poor planning, or are not fulfilling the veterans benefits that these troops need when they come home, or [are] undermining our constitution with warrantless wiretaps that are unnecessary.

"That is a debate that I am very happy to have," Obama added. "We'll see what the American people think is the true definition of patriotism."

I was watching Maher the other day and was annoyed by how many times the two Republicans took swipes at Obama that were completely untrue and Maher just let them. I guess he's not as informed as he should be on Obama.

I think the behavior of some of his supporters stands a chance at turning off some moderates before November. But barring some kind of scandal, I don't think anything too big. That's not to say he'll win, but if he does lose, it'll be because of the issues, not the man.

He has become a stronger candidate throughout the primary election process, which may make up for any backlash against his more fervent supporters (some of which we're seeing now).

I don't think McCain VS Obama is anything can call at this moment, given the factors involved (McCain's support of the surge/ temper, Obama's inexperience, etc.) Obama can have a massive victory, a massive defeat or anything in between.

There'll be a backlash, but Obama's campaign operation is strong enough to control it if it hits before the election, so long as he himself keeps his head.

If it hits after the election (and he wins said election), he'll have a couple years to recover, plus the advantages of incumbancy. This is probably a little more likely; governing is all about making hard choices, and he wouldn't be able to help but piss someone off.

If it hits after the election and he loses, well, who gives a shit?

I hate to say it, but you are without doubt assuming the worst in people. I think that that is why Hillary Clinton is failing. She is assuming that a man in a turban will be automatically associated with Islam. That will not happen in this case. Obama has been able to reflect everything negative thrown at him because she is not liked. This sort of thing will not happen with McCain. McCain will not be vindictive in his attacks and resort to cheap theatrics to win.

If Hillary understood her base and did not act as if she had won the nomination already, she would have easily beat Obama. Emphasizing her experience plays directly into Obama's hollow change speeches. She has allowed herself to be pigeon-holed as the establishment. The Democratic party is always about change even though the same ideas are usually thrown out into the arena of ideas.

I think that this type of attack is the final nail in the coffin, since Democrats are already tired of negative campaigning. Between this and the plagarism thing, she has played every card in her deck. She is going to ruin the Democrat party by fighting until the convention. If she really cared about the party or the country (from her viewpoint), she would withdraw. This smiley face icon says it all for Hill: :surrend:

That is possible and it's worrisome. The media have picked Clinton apart with her obvious flaws. But Obama up to this point has been seen as nearly infallible and bulletproof.

So what I worry is what's going to happen when Clinton is out of the picture? The media will turn their microscope on Obama look for any little flaw they can find.

You are right that others may attack oon each side, but as far as candidates go, McCain will not be obnoxious like Clinton. You have to wonder just how angry she really is about losing to Obama. She has played the race card, accused him of plagarizing a person in his campaign, tried to link him to a corrupt business man that contributed to her when Bubba was in the White House, and now accusing him of being Muslim. This woman knows no shame in shameless smear attacks. While I may not agree with his positions and thoughts on how to run the country, Obama is not a person who is trying to be president because it is his turn or just wants power to lord it.

It is good to see that the Democrats are not willing to sell their souls for the presidency.

To be fair though, grape was the flavor at the Jim Jones compound. I'm not sure whether this is an unlucky coincidence or a subtle extra-jab by the cartoonist. Either way, that's a pretty lame cartoon.

I'm not really sure that "people really like him" is going to be the most successful way to go negative on Obama anyway. ;)

In-Law Political Dispute Ends In Stabbing

UPPER PROVIDENCE, Pa. (CBS 3) ― The Montgomery County District Attorney's Office is investigating a politically motivated stabbing that left one in-law hospitalized and another in prison.

Authorities said brother-in-laws Jose Ortiz and Sean Shurelds were involved in a verbal altercation over Democratic presidential hopefuls Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton when the argument escalated into a stabbing inside their family home on Honey Locust Court in Upper Providence.

Authorities said Ortiz, a registered Republican and Clinton supporter, allegedly stabbed Shurelds, an Obama supporter, in the stomach.
Shurelds was flown to an area hospital and was listed in critical condition.

Ortiz was jailed on $20,000 bail. If convicted of a felony crime, he will not be able to vote in the upcoming election.

The kool aid thing is funny to an extent, but really they're all just very excited and loyal to their candidate of choice because they believe in them. The Obamallamas have eclipsed Paul supporters in sheer feverishness lately though, imo.
