JUST GET OVER YOURSELF
The so-called Hillary demographic of older voters, blue color workers etc are being harassed for not jumping aboard the unity pony. Their concerns about BO are not about their candidate losing as BO and his supporters charge.
As when BO, addressing the Black Caucus, said, “they’ll get over it”. Rep. Diane Watson, D-Calif., a longtime Clinton supporter, did not like those last three words — “Get over it.” She found them dismissive, off-putting AND SO DID WE.
Although BO is trying to blame racism as the reason that many people do not like him, it sure worked against Hillary, didn’t it? Trying to give whitey a guilt trip may not work this time because he does NOT have all the media pulling for him as he did in the Primaries and he’s not running against a woman.
Their concerns were and still are that he is a swaggering phony with little or no experience, unqualified for the office. Where Hillary showed competence and self-confidence, he comes on as arrogant and self important, claiming that he will clean the Aegean stables of DC politics. They just do not trust him.
And this week others are beginning to see what these voters still see, as BO not only flip flopped on NAFTA but more to the point flat out lied. He had said several times he would take public funding and now goes back on his word; even many of his avid supporters, like Russ Feingold are disgusted.
Then as a striking symbol of his utter disregard for history and his massive conceit, he unveils his own presidential seal. It is described as having symbolic differences.
Instead of the Latin 'E pluribus unum' (Out of many, one), BO's says 'Vero possumus', rough Latin for 'Yes, we can.' Instead of 'Seal of the President of the United States', BO's Web site address is listed. And instead of a shield, BO's eagle wears his 'O' campaign logo with a rising sun representing hope ahead. Wonder if he’ll wear ermine robes at his coronation?
His presidential seal had only one appearance before it was laughed out of existence. BO pulled it explaining that it was created just for one appearance and the media let him get away with that lie too.
Meanwhile women and men are launching continuing protests against the misogamy that has been a hallmark of this campaign engaged in by BO himself and the way he has urged on his supporters and used the media.

NOW has a media hall of shame website. It allows you to evaluate and send your feelings and opinions to the network big-wigs.
Remember how the mean-stream-media continually kissed up to and supported Bush and his war for years until people demanded the truth? Then all the pundits and commentators jumped aboard and all the secrete deals and lies were published. But it was too late for the thousands killed or maimed by a needless war.
Remember how all through the Primary, women continually brought the massive misogyny by the media, BO blogs and BO’s campaign out in their blogs and their letters and phone calls and were totally ignored?
Now when it is too late to be fair to the only female candidate, many in the media are belatedly writing and wringing their hands over what they so long totally ignored. And, characteristically, they are not demanding that this kind of treatment against women be abolished.
KNOW THIS AND UNDERSTAND IT, MSM pundits, BO AND YOUR ILK - WE WILL NOT GET OVER IT. You can no longer feed us bull and tell us its candy and piss on us and tell us it's raining.
