“Given the vote and the leading in the polls in Ohio, the only way [Obama] can lose is if people are prevented from casting their ballots and other forms of harassment.”
“It’s part of what they’re doing. Suffocate the airwaves with endless, unidentified special interest money, suck the air out of the airwaves. Suppress the vote with these regulations and laws that they have passed, and the other way they suppress the vote is to help people — it’s no use even going, you’re not going to be able to vote, it’s a turnoff.
What else is a turnoff is their poisonous campaign. If you suffocate the airwaves, suppress the vote, poison the debate, people throw up their hands and say, I just don’t even know if I want to participate in this. And when they walk away, right, thinking people walk away, the special interests achieve a victory.”
“If this flood of outside money continues, the day after the election, 17 angry old white men will wake up and realize they’ve just bought the country.”
“That first campaign I ran, the last campaign I ran in 2008 — I’ve been outspent before. I’ve had a lot of money thrown at me before.”
“Some complain on Twitter about Obama.
You wanna go back? To Bush? Cheney? Paulson? Rumsfeld? Unfunded wars? Death of US soldiers and innocent civilians for oil?
You wanna go back to lying thieves in the White House who make war under false pretenses in order to make $ for their friends?
The election is around the corner. You want another corporate puppet who will squander more US natural resources, revenue and perhaps lives?
Just to protect that breed of wealth that wants America to finally accept a European model of plutocracy?
There are winners and losers. That is how it must be. But the America I love believes that all deserve some modicum of care and security.
“[T]here is sort of a race between his egomania and his racism. I think [Newt Gingrich’s] running the most overtly racist campaign that I’ve seen in this country since George Wallace, if you are talking about presidential campaigns.
So I think what he tries to do is to do these dog whistle things to people who he thinks he can connect with, to make up for his shortcomings, frankly, as a human being.”
“I think [Gingrich] has that subtlety of racism that I know quite well and that Gingrich knows quite well, that appeals to some people in Georgia, particularly the right wing.
…[H]e knows the subtle words to use to appeal to a racist group.”
“I see hatred being the key ingredient of the Republican candidate selection process.
…To the true haters out there, their biggest dream, their big night isn’t victory by traditional Republican standards of smaller government. It`s about watching Obama bite the dust. That`s what they lust for. And that explains why they can seriously get behind the candidacy of Newt Gingrich, because he promises them what they yearn for in their sleep —
the destruction of a positive, hopeful, progressive presidency that proves every day that the American Dream is for everyone.”
