    Obama tries to make Georgia seem in play; it isnít
    By Jim Wooten | Tuesday, July 8, 2008, 07:39 AM

    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

    The presidential candidate of symbolism and empty phrases comes, symbolically, to a school in Cobb County on Tuesday to demonstrate that he attracts a crowd in a Republican county thatís commonly identified as ďsuburban.Ē

    <<Snip<<

    The symbolic message here is that Georgia is in play. Fat chance. If Obama wins Georgia, heíll occupy the White House. He wonít, despite the surge in registration and the enthusiasm he engenders among Democrats.

    Obamaís coming here despite the fact that Sen. John McCainís leading by 10 percentage points in the latest poll, said U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson on Monday, because ďobviously there are problems in Pennsylvania and Ohio.Ē Republicans are starting a television blitz in those two states and in Michigan and Wisconsin, other battleground states, pointing out that on energy, he has no new ideas or solutions.

    The Rasmussen poll that Isakson cited ďshoots holes in the rhetoric that Georgia is in play,Ē he said. ďThey realize how solid the South has been in the Republican corner since 1992, and theyíd like nothing else than to crack a Southern state.Ē


    <<Snip<<

    He cannot win Georgia. Nohow, no way.

    What about Barr?
    This is bigger than presidential politics. This is a battle for America.

    I dunno about Barr, I think most people remember Ross Perot and the effect he had in 92 far too well. Voting for Barr isn't worth the risk of an Obama presidency, IMO.

    Plus Georgia's very popular Libertarian radio talk show host, Neal Boortz, has come out vehnmently against Barr. Boortz even had Barr on his show, and ripped him apart I might add.

    Barr at last polling was holding 3 percent. He was holding 5 percent in one of the Carolinas.

    McCain will mop the floor up with Obama. Barr will have no impact in GA and nor any other state as it will be a clean sweep in the South. .

    Barr will probably get my vote before McAmnesty or Mr. Obama will. I'm still and undecided. We'll see who has the best conservative credentials. So far from what I've studied it's Barr or Baldwin.
    I will never vote Nader..but if someone held a gun to my head, he seems more principled than the Republcrat candidates. At least I know What I'm getting.

    I just can't believe in the lesser of two evils anymore and I don't vote (any more) for who will "win".

    There are quite a few RP voters going that way.

    That would figure as that was my choice during the primaries.
    I figure, if the Republican's are going to keep nominating nobodies that have absolutely nothing in common with conservatism and classic liberalism (the things that caused me to join the young republican's nearly 20 years ago)...then maybe this party either needs to be brought back to it's roots or isn't a home anymore for conservatives. Time will tell. Unfortunately...what a dangerous time to have an quasi muslim empty coat and a LBJ clone as the major nominees.
    I don't know, but I just can't see Bush or McCain or Obama respecting a reading list that consisted of the ideas of Burke, J.S. Mill, Russell Kirk, W.Buckley Jr, or Goldwater

    In Georgia it usually stacks up with the metro counties versus the small towns and rural areas.

    I have a hard time seeing Obama winning in Georgia. I just don't see it happening.
