Obama Draws Massive Crowd in Denver

DENVER -- Republicans thought it ostentatious when the Democratic National Convention decided to move Barack Obama's acceptance speech from the convention hall to Invesco Field, where the Denver Broncos play football.

But the stadium might not have been able to hold the midday crowd that greeted Obama today on his return to the city.

Estimates from the police department released by the Obama campaign first put the crowd in Civic Center Park in the heart of Denver at 75,000. They then revised the figure to 100,000.

Whatever it was, it was huge. "Goodness gracious," Obama marveled. "Let me just ask something: Do you ever get small crowds here in Denver?"

It remains an open question what such huge crowds mean for Obama's electoral prospects in the more competitive battlegrounds states. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton won the Pennsylvania primary despite holding much smaller rallies than Obama in the run up to that election.

A transcript of Obama's remarks at the rally can be read here.

wes1155, Actually I believe Obama. I heard his interview from 2001 and it only confirms his beliefs in 2008.

In the startling radio interview, Obama, then a state senator in Illinois, laments that the Supreme Court of the 1960s "didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, at least as it has been interpreted."

"The Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and sort of basic issues of political and economic justice in this society," Obama says.
But more importantly, these and other comments in the interview lay bare Barack Obama's view of this country and its government more completely than anything that has yet been seen or heard.

Obama believes the Constitution is "constraining" us from doing certain things, most prominently "redistributing" wealth. Obama will trample on the US Consitution and his buddies are already known left wingers who tried to do this 30 years ago; they are still trying with their Poster Child, Obama.

Pokeymompokey:
You seem to blame this economic crisis on Bush and McCain. Why is that?
The sub prime loans debacle had its genesis in the Clinton Administration’s affirmative action policy that transferred enormous powers of near extortion over the banks and lending authorities, to Left wing Socialist community activists.
The Socialist activists are the ones who the administered loans to people who had no hope ever of paying them off.
This was a massive failure of Clinton’s unregulated, little thought out , social engineering, and was already well on its way to disaster long before Bush came to office, as was the securitization of these loans that has turned it into a world-wide disaster.
The American economy was also on the brink of a recession when Bush came to office, and on top of that he had to deal with the aftermath of 9/11.
He had the job to keep you all safe for the last 8 years, as he has done spectacularly well in that.
On the other hand , Clinton just hoped Al Qaeda would go away, and squandered every opportunity to nip them in the bud, even while they escalated their attacks on, and murder of , Americans and others , year after year, emboldened as they were by the Clinton inaction.
With such equivocation and timidity on the part of the Democratic Clinton Administration, it was always going to end in something like 9/11.
Bush and McCain both warned several years ago of the problems with the sub prime loans and Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and recommended regulation to prevent a disaster such as we now have, and they were rebuffed and denigrated by the Democrats, who ( especially Barney Frank )made a big show of ridiculing such a proposition.
It was the Democrats that were running those two entities, though, and milking them for all they were worth, including Obama himself, who now employs on his top financial team, the former CEOs of Fannie and Freddie as well as one of their executives ie Obama’s’s employing on his team the ones who presided over the corruption of process and the masking of the true position of the two entities.
Why on earth are Americans giving Obama a pass, and hanging all this on Bush and McCain?
Even more than that, they’re allowing the very perpetrators of this meltdown to claim credibility on economic matters, and thereby to take the Presidency.
It’s like the arsonist getting credit for helping to put out the fire.
This Socialist engineering , rorting of the system and socializing with unrepentant, unpunished , triumphant domestic terrorists , was what Democrats were preoccupied with, and benefiting from, while George Bush and John McCain were working to keep America and the world safe from Al Qaeda.

wes1155, If Barack Obama wins, he'll run one of the most aggressively anti-free speech administrations in American history. We've already seen the Obama campaign launch campaigns of threats and intimidation to try to get radio stations to not have guests who criticize Obama or raise questions about his past and his associates - and to even go so far as to ask the Justice Department to launch a baseless criminal investigation into an independent organization that produced an anti-Obama ad.

You and other Obama supporters also try to play me off as a weirdo and try to suppress my freedom of speech about Obama. You think others are not seeing it? The way the radical Obama supporters slam others in posts with name calling and other verbal attacks does not go un-noticed, so keep it up! I can take it!

There you have it about Obama. Americans are lining up to vote for him? Not in the real world, just in the media's words. REAL Americans know the truth about Barry Soetoro/Barack Obama.

wes1155, Excuse me but Obama said those words in public about appointing a special investigator to investigate voter fraud when in fact, he wants an investigation to determine who leaked the information to the press that ACORN was being investigated by the FBI for voter fraud. A BIG difference. You can check that out with the Dept of Justice! Let us know the results.

sonnychiba72,

Oh great seeker of "The Truth!" Obama's campaign asked that a special prosecutor be appointed to investigate and rightly so since it is being used as a political football. I don't believe anyone was surprised either after the last two elections.

There is a much bigger fraud being perpetrated and it is being done by several states in direct violation of election laws. That's what you should be concerned about whether it is intentional or due to ineptness.

All African-Americans are not supporting Obama. The Bradley Effect will even be stronger this election regarding the polls. Why? For several reasons.

African-Americans who are not going to vote for Obama are not willing to say this in a poll because they are already being branded as "traitors and Uncle Toms" for not supporting Obama. Some Caucasians are not willing to say in a poll that they are NOT voting for Obama because they have already been branded as "racists."

Obama is filing letters of protest with the Justice Department trying to stop an investigation into ACORN voter fraud. This is also a negative upon his character because since when does a Presidential Candidate support voter fraud, all of which is in his favor? Obama supports it. In his rallies, he is saying one thing but behind the scenes, he is trying to stop this investigation.

Since Obama used those terms, so can I. The American public is being hoodwinked and bamboozled by Obama.

pastor, please, Obama already has enough negative things about his character without making up lies. People who support McCain make up lies just as supporters of Obama do.

John McCain publically confronted a lady in one of his rallies because she said Obama was an Arab. John McCain was repaid with Obama using lines from Spike Lee's film; he said that people are being hoodwinked and bamboozled. If that isn't a racist statement, I don't know what is! Obama knows what he is doing.

People seem to forget seeing Obama giving Hillary Clinton the finger in Raleigh! Obama is using the race card to try and divide America.

I've been concerned with Obama's committment to Israel after he changed his stance on Jerusalem immediately following Palestinian complaint 1 d after AIPAC-

Gateway Pundit
Friday, October 24, 2008
Confirmed: MSM Holds Video Of Barack Obama Attending Jew-Bash & Toasting a Former PLO Operative... Refuse to Release the Video!

LA Times writer Peter Wallsten wrote about Barack Obama's close association with former Palestinian operative Rashid Khalidi back in April.
Wallsten discussed a dinner held back in 2003 in honor of Khalidi, a critic of Israel and advocate for Palestinian rights.
Barack Obama has denied his close association with Khalidi, too.
According to Wallsten the evening not surprisingly turned into a classic Jew-bash:
"During the dinner a young Palestinian American recited a poem accusing the Israeli government of terrorism in its treatment of Palestinians and sharply criticizing U.S. support of Israel. If Palestinians cannot secure their own land, she said, "then you will never see a day of peace."
One speaker likened "Zionist settlers on the West Bank" to Osama bin Laden, saying both had been "blinded by ideology."
Barack Obama also praised the former PLO operative during the event.
And, Obama confessed that his family often shared dinner with the Khalidis:
His many talks with the Khalidis, Obama said, had been "consistent reminders to me of my own blind spots and my own biases... It's for that reason that I'm hoping that, for many years to come, we continue that conversation -- a conversation that is necessary not just around Mona and Rashid's dinner table," but around "this entire world."
...The event was videotaped, and a copy of the tape was obtained by The (LA)Times.
Khalidi and the Obamas were great friends in Chicago and often shared meals together.
By the way, Khalidi was also best friends with Bill Ayers.
Wallston was one of the few mainstream media reporters to report on this radical Obama associate.

Wallston said that the article was written after he watched video taken at the Khalidi going away party. When I asked him about the video he said that as far as he was concerned he was through with the story.

I asked him if he was planning on releasing this video of Obama toasting the radical Khalidi at this Jew-bash. He told me he was not releasing the video. He also would not comment on his source for the video. So, there you have it.
The LA Times has video of Obama toasting a former PLO operative at a Jew-bash but will not release the video.
This is outrageous.
Obviously, this video would do great damage to Obama who struggles with Jewish voters due to his circle of close anti-Semitic friends.
Maybe this is the reason it is not being released?
Barack Obama funnelled thousands of dollars of cash to Rashidi's anti-Israel Foundation through his work on the Woods Fund.

Why are so many Americans willing to vote into their presidency, a man who has a friend who is an unrepentant domestic terrorist?
If Obama becomes President, the inescapable conclusion will be that Americans don’t give a damn about values and the law of your country and that anything goes, even the killing of innocent fellow Americans, by arrogant and sociopathic people who think their mad political cause gives them the right to take other people’s lives.
Obama’s friend, Bill Ayres and his wife told their supporters to ‘go home and kill your parents ; that’s where it’s at’.
Is that the morality of Obama voters?
Obama seeks to muddy the waters and deceive voters by saying he was only 8years old when Ayres was bombing buildings and innocent Americans.
This is about as dishonest you can get, because he knows it’s just a device.
His age at the time of the Ayres crimes is absolutely irrelevant, and he knows that, but he uses the remark as a diversion, hoping it will prevent any further inconvenient questions about what is in fact relevant, ie his association with Ayres when he , Obama, was a grown man, politically active, and fully aware of the nature of the crimes that were committed with impunity.
Obama likes to cite the fact that others , including Republicans, were on the same boards etc, but that’s irrelevant, because they’re not running for President, and would not be the face of America.
The Weather Underground that Ayres and Dorn founded, had been planning to bomb a dance at an American military establishment, and the murder of scores of innocent young American men and women that would have resulted, was only prevented by the Ayres recruits’ own deaths, when the nail bombs they were preparing blew up the bombers themselves and the house they were in.
These are the people ( Ayres and Dorn) that Obama visited in their home.
If America elects as their President, a man who was willing to associate with such people, it sends a horrendous signal to the world, and not least to the murderous terrorists of Al Qaeda.

Both Jack Welch and I are supporting McCain and we feel the most important articles in the NY Times yesterday were the lead article on Increasing Unemployment/Corporate Layoffs in the United States and the follow up article on the Job Disaster in Rhode Island. Rhode Island is suffering with 8.8% unemployment and, not coincidentally, is the state ranked 50th for business tax treatment by the nonpartisan Tax Foundation. Neighboring Massachusetts is ranked 34th, with 6.1% unemployment. Two states with no state corporate tax, South Dakota and Wyoming , have 2.8 and 3.0% unemployment. The conclusion of the NYT article is that State officials in RI are rethinking and planning to alter their business tax policy. Do you think this article has implications in the coming election? Jack and I do!
Jack said so on This Week with George Stephanopoulos this morning. He said that he moved GE out of RI because of their state corporate taxes! Do you think we should increase or decrease corporate taxes in the current recession (hint-Herbert Hoover increased them)?

Why are you listening to a candidate who wants to turn all 50 states into Rhode Island?

Lowering business taxes leads to JOB creation...$900 is a cheap price to pay for a job (Obama wants to give the middle class a $1200 annual tax cut and McCain wants to give them a $300 cut). Just ask the people of Rhode Island.

Geez = here we go on corporate taxes again.

Corporations paid only 7.5% of all Federal tax revenues collected last year - the lowest level since the 1930s - except for 1983 when Reagan lowered corporate tax rates.

The percentage of corporate taxes to total tax revenue has continually fallen.

I'm not voting for Obama. And I don't believe most others would vote for him if the main stream media has been doing its job. The reason I'm not voting for him is because of his linkage to radicals and terrorist. And I'm not just talking about the Ayers connection. The one that concerns me the most is his affiliation with Raila Odinga, a radical from Kenya. I wouldn’t trust Obama with the safe-guarding of this country. It would take forever to fully explain it but I will post a link to a website that has a accurate description of the linkages. The title is: Barack Obama & Raila Odinga - Just Another Terrorist From The Hood - The website link is: http://www.thexreport.com - There are also some video's that accompany the story at the bottom.

Both Jack Welch and I are supporting John McCain and we feel the most important articles in the NY Times today were the lead article on Increasing Corporate Layoffs in the United States and the follow up article on the Job Disaster in Rhode Island. Rhode Island is suffering with 8.8% unemployment and, not coincidentally, is the state ranked 50th for business tax treatment by the nonpartisan Tax Foundation. Neighboring Massachusetts is ranked 34th, with 6.1% unemployment. Two states with no state corporate tax, South Dakota and Wyoming , have 2.8 and 3.0% unemployment. The conclusion of the NYT article is that State officials in RI are rethinking and planning to alter their business tax policy. Do you think this article has implications in the coming election? Jack and I do!
Jack said so on This Week with George Stephanopoulos this morning. He said that he moved GE out of RI because of their state corporate taxes! Do you think we should increase or decrease corporate taxes in the current recession (hint-Herbert Hoover increased them)?

Without getting overly philosophical, can one ever speak about "winning" a war, any war or a military conflict?

The so-called "victor" after mutual military destruction is necessarily just more brutal, brought more death & devastation over his "enemy". But does that make his side "victorious"? I doubt it.

That mankind still needs to go to war is nothing more than a tragic demonstration of our human failing ... and I say this without disrespect for persons who has served.

We should all strive for a world without crime & a without military bloodshed. Gen. Petreus is correct in the sense that nobody ever wins in a war, all sides lose.

McCain and the "VICTORY" shame game

McCain and the Republicans bring dishonor to our troops by applying the "Victory/Defeat" label to Iraq.

Our troops have followed their orders and have served with honor and dignity in Iraq. To add this polarizing label is to add the burden of shame to the backs of troops that already have suffered enough. As a Vietnam vet, McCain should know what the vets of that era went through when they came home and were labeled losers.

General Patraeus himself said he'd "Never Declare Victory" in this interview on 9/11/08 of all days!

McCain is wrong and just doesn't get it-- he should be ashamed.

Once you accept that Barack Obama is the one to vote for between the two candidates (after John McCain imploded over the economy) and that Obama, despite his lack of experience has a much more mature and disciplined campaign that seems to show he has real leadership, it's hard NOT to get excited over all the positives of his candidacy.

The Great OB plans out the future of the Galactic Republic USAmerica
The Great Ob called the Hollywood Celebrities Council led by Oprah to an emergency meeting after his inaugural address in Washington, DC. The Great OB laid out his agenda: 1. Dissolve FBI, DEA, and other law enforcement agencies. Replaced by the one million men headed by Minister Farrakhan; 2. Recall the US Army from Iraq and reposition it to Afghanistan. All National Guard troops will be put on alert and send to Afghanistan. National Guard will be replaced with pardoned prisoners, who will form the core of the Obama Guard; 3. All constitutional rights in the USA will be suspended except making Movies by Steven Spielberg and TV shows by Oprah; 4. The opposition leaders will be immediately arrested and prosecuted for treason; 5. Newly elected Congress will be instructed to rewrite the Constitution of the USA transforming the USA from the Republic into the Peoples Republic USAmerica; 6. All private property including business will be immediately nationalized and put into the Obama Trust Fund; 7. After the new Constitution is adopted the Congress will be immediately dissolved and all lawmakers will be imprisoned; 8. All courts will be transformed into the military courts run by Minister Farrakhan; 9. All religious properties are being transferred to the Obama Trust Fund; 10 All freedoms are suspended indefinitely. There will be only one national newspaper, one TV station, and one radio station. All Internet communications are being banned. Internet will be used only by military personnel under command of Minister Farrakhan. The Great OB stated that more decrees will follow soon.
George Clooney opened his mouth and stood there in silence. Samuel Jackson repeated his old mantra “we have a Leader, who won for us.” Matt Damon and Ben Affleck chanted mindlessly “the Great Leader, who won for us, the Great Leader, who won for us, the Great Leader who won for us.” Barbara Streisand wanted to sing the uplifting song titled “The Great Leader OB who won for us,” but could not get any sound of her chest. Steve Spielberg reminded them about the importance of this win “I am going to continue making movies, You are all welcomed to star in them. They will praise our Leader, the Great OB and his life. It is all for the good of the Galactic Republic USAmerica.” Matt Damon started to sing the song “I am so proud of our work towards this win. We won because we sang songs, paid money, gave interviews and now we will make more movies praising the Great OB.” They all agreed that the Great OB is the Greatest Leader of them all. The Great OB will lead the Force. Oprah, Clooney, Jackson, Damon, Affleck, Streisand, Spielberg formed a circle around the Great OB and started to dance in exciting rhythm.

hchiba: The dissenting opinion by Justice Stevens in the 5-4 Bush v. Gore decision that gave Bush a one vote victory in the electoral college:

"What must underlie petitioners' entire federal assault on the Florida election procedures is an unstated lack of confidence in the impartiality and capacity of the state judges who would make the critical decisions if the vote count were to proceed. Otherwise, their position is wholly without merit. The endorsement of that position by the majority of this Court can only lend credence to the most cynical appraisal of the work of judges throughout the land. It is confidence in the men and women who administer the judicial system that is the true backbone of the rule of law. Time will one day heal the wound to that confidence that will be inflicted by today's decision. One thing, however, is certain. Although we may never know with complete certainty the identity of the winner of this year's Presidential election, the identity of the loser is perfectly clear. It is the Nation's confidence in the judge as an impartial guardian of the rule of law."


Blessings upon you Justice Stevens. We shall not forget you.

In case you missed it, Denver is the capital of one of the major battleground states in this election, and all the recent polls show Barack Obama with a significant lead there.

And since you reminded us of the primaries, you better remember that, many times, Barack Obama delivered better results on election day than the polls had shown previously.

So, I don't really understand what you want to tell us with your ironic comment about Mr. Obama's "electoral prospects."

Whatever the outcome on 4 November, Obama has inspired us to reach for the sky.

Oboma, that someone who astutely broke through - sans McCain/Palin's helicopter-wolf-exterminating coterie of unconditional "my country first" types - to crash all the GOP political balls, traditionally reserved for an over-weight GOP establishment (cf., Dick Cheney, Rimbaugh, Carl Rove ... all rather burger-fries-heavies on bathroom scales).

And so ... GOP stale Cuban cigars & Whisky & Scotch is cleared away by Obama's gust of fresh, sober cooler air.

And Obama didn't need 150$T of so-called "chic", imported NYC duds, no high-heeled red boots or Made in Korea ridiculous glasses to inspire us.

McCain may have 8 full-loaded walk-in closets in his 8 luxury pads spread across the "country-first" territories of the US, but, on the spot, in interviews, he regurgitates his olde memorized (usually negative) one-liners.

Obama & family live in one house. He wears the same digs, white shirt, dark trousers, but when Sen. Oboma replies, his words sing & he inspires. Like on Sunday, in Denver.

The reversal of Roe will not reduce the number of abortions.

The matter will simply revert to the states. Red states will restrict or ban abortions outright. Blue states will continue choice.

Women in red states who want abortions will travel to blue states to get them.

Better we provide alternatives to unwanted pregnancies - contraception information, sex education, pre natal care, adoption services etc. The best we can hope for is to reduce the number of abortions to a minimum. Abortions have always existed and always will.

Some misinformed people keep saying that lower corporate taxes helps the common man. They say that lower taxes on corporations help create jobs. This is one of the largest myths going. It hasn't worked over the past eight years, and will not work in the future. Why? Because tax rates do not determine job levels. Consumption and product demand do. If there is no consumer demand, and you lower taxes on the rich, that money goes straight into savings and investments, NOT job creation. Lowering taxes on the middle and lower classes create jobs. Why? Because that money goes directly back into the market buying goods, which increases demand, and companies hire more workers to keep up with demand. That is simple economics. Pretending otherwise is buying into all the garbage they have been shoveling you for ages!

"Wall Street wives are finding that they must defer dreams and fancy things," the L.A. Times reported in a page one story on Saturday. One wife, who had been looking forward to her husband's retiring with "$10 to $12 million," told the Times she was "so angry" with the stock market meltdown, which was "not in her plan." The husband made $400,000 last year, "but there are no reports yet on what will happen to 2008 bonuses and options."

The same day a page one story in the New York Times reported on yard sales at foreclosed homes in working class neighborhoods in California: "three-year-old Marita Duarte's tricycle was sold by her mother, Beatriz, to a stranger for $3 - even as her daughter was riding it." The mother had lost her job as a floral designer two months ago, and now the house has been lost.

On Wall Street the average income is $365,000, according to the Times, "although top-flight managers typically make many millions more." Wall Street wives described to L.A. Times reporter Geraldine Baum "the pain of walking through malls and boutiques -how it hurts knowing they can't grab a few things for themselves that might catch their fancy."

Meanwhile in working class Manteca, California, south of Sacramento, another family was selling their kids' toys at another yard sale. Constantino Gonzalez's problem? He lost his construction job, Patricia Leigh Brown reported. "We need to eat," he told his kids about why their toys were being sold. "I can't cover the sun with my finger. So why lie?"

Back on Wall Street, one wife described "bitterly" the "lavish gifts" they had given to others - like the $5,000 diamond-and-platinum ring her husband had given his sister when she got married, along with a week at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. "I wish I had that money now," the wife told the Times.

You continually forget to point out that you will benefit from lower corporate taxes.

Not even Barrack Obama is planning to raise corporate taxes and lowering them is a go idea when you can be sure that lowering taxes will help corporations that will create or keep jobs that are in the US. So a governor can always be sure that by helping businesses he is helping the job situation in his state. You are well aware that indiscriminate lowering of federal corporate taxes will help Exxon's operation of job creation overseas. Obama unlike McCain wants to stimulate job creation at home.

Your posts seem to be from an intelligent person yet you keep misstating the value of McCain's policies to the average voter. This is what is so bad about McCain compared to Obama. With Obama the tax savings goes directly to the company that creates jobs. Stop trying to support Washington lobbyists and insiders and confusing ordinary people about what McCain is doing.

The whole world is rooting for us to succeed. The whole world needs an America they can look up to again.

MAKE SURE YOU VOTE!

Colorado is looking like a done deal for Obama. It'll be tough to keep him under 320 Electoral Votes.

NotBubba:

Perhaps we are getting tired of being called "racists" all the time? Just for pointing out an historic fact. Does your bromide apply to William Ayers?

Meanwhile, Alaska runs and hides.

A major Alaskan paper (there are only 3) today, in their editorial, endorsed Obama, and trashed John McCain's judgement, concluding: "few who have worked closely with the governor would argue she is truly ready to assume command of the most important, powerful nation on earth."

Meanwhile, a second op-ed from another major Alaskan paper today referred to Palin as "the real bridge to nowhere."

In a scathing denunciation, the columnist adds: "By now the world knows Palin is an expert at swishing around, color coordinated, with her makeup and mooseburger and mean-spirited commentary. We can only hope people realize she's a pretty atypical Alaskan, one who is simply skimming the gravy off our hard-earned Alaskan mystique to mix with her varnished nonsense."

I have both pieces highlighted, with links to the complete articles, at

It is certainly going to be enjoyable watching the right implode, but I hope that it doesn't turn vile and violent. There are still plenty of hatemongering idiots out there who will have a hard time with the new reality. Hope they move to Mexico...

Part of the crowds may be the desire to experience "part of history" in person, but there's no doubt Obama has traction in Colorado.

Jake D, don't see any "Brown Shirts" in that crowd but not so sure about the other side where "kill him", "terrorist", "socialist" seems to occur daily.

Old bromide of "tell me who your friends are and I'll tell you who you are" seems to apply to McCain-Palin. Certainly there are well meaning and sincere supporters, but there are far too many wose hate, bigotry and close mindedness are not the "real America".
