Good news: Obama presidential seal debuts; Update: Illegal?

Replete, believe it or not, with its own Latin motto. Here’s the obligatory close-up. Anyone want to take a wild guess at what “Vero Possumus” means?

I’d love to hammer him for being presumptuous, but….

Barack finally has his bounce. For weeks many political experts and pollsters have been wondering why the race between Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain had stayed so tight, even after the Illinois senator wrested the nomination from Hillary Clinton… A new NEWSWEEK Poll shows that he has a substantial double-digit lead, 51 percent to 36 percent, over McCain among registered voters nationwide…

Most other national polls have shown Obama with a 4 to 5 point lead over McCain so far. Random statistical error can explain some of the difference in poll results. The NEWSWEEK survey of 1,010 adults nationwide on June 18 and 19, 2008, has a margin of error of 4 points. But the latest evidence of his gaining ground goes well beyond that margin…

In the new poll, registered Democrats and Democratic leaners who supported Clinton during the primaries now favor Obama over McCain by 69 percent to 18 percent. In last month’s survey, Clinton supporters backed the Illinois senator by a significantly smaller margin, 53 percent to 34 percent.

Actually, it’s not terribly worrisome. Granted, the numbers about Hillary supporters coming home to the party are in line with the Fox News poll from yesterday, but like JWF says, compare the samples: 42/35/16 D/R/I for Fox versus 38/23/35 for Newsweek. We’ll treat it as an outlier, especially considering the source. Exit question: Can we treat this one as an outlier too?

Update: Silly Standard. The Messiah is above the law of man.

Wow, I thought the “vero possumus” was a photoshop. What a petard.

Obama truly is scary, and he is leading now even in the Rasmussen polls by seven points. What do people see in this guy, even after all the Wright stuff and Father Pfleger came out? Are the American people really stupid enough to be taken in by this fraud?

He said that his parents met and conceived him at the march in Selma, when he was already four years old. He said that his father came to America through some program by JFK for black people, and that resulted in his birth. Then his birth certificate comes out, dated August 1961, meaning that he was conceived during the Eisenhower Administration.
He points to the Kennedy/Krushchev talks as helping defuse the Cuban missile crisis, when Kennedy himself admitted that the talks emboldened Krushchev. He was agasint NAFTA in Ohio, for it in Canada. Yet nothing seems to stick to Mr. Slick!

He says that we can’t drill our way out of the energy crisis until 2030. History shows that when Reagan removed the $6/barrel price controls on American oil in 1981, crude prices were cut in half by 1983–at that rate, we should see cheaper crude by 2010, not 2030, if we drill now.

Somebody needs to educate the American voters about how devious, duplicitous, and dangerous the Obama-nation is! Obama can probably count on media complicity until November. Does McCain have the cojones and the money to do it with ads? Or do we have to prove Obama right in one of his predictions, and hammer him with 527 ads?

The American people need to know the truth by November, otherwise the Thought Police will permanently silence it, and Big Brother Barack will rule the proletariat.
