After reading this section of the forum for about a month, I think I've deciphered the "marching orders" being sent out to try and slow down the Obama momentum. They're pretty easy to figure out after a while, and this is probably what the email/newsletter from the Hillary camp looked like:

) Paint Obama as inexperienced. Equate Obama's inexperience with GW Bush (as if Bush's main problem is his inexperience, not that he's a dolt, can't speak two sentences and isn't even running his own administration)
) Paint Obama as a marxist/socialist - As in, "he's different from Hillary because he's commie red", make sure to spread the word about some non-sanctioned Che Guevera flag hanging in an office somewhere.
) Paint Obama as a radical, leading a "cult" of followers like Reverend Moon, David Koresh, and Minister Farakkhan
) Paint Obama's followers as "sheep" who can't think for themselves, and who are easily lured by Black Eyed Pees videos and baptist minister chants of salvation
) Paint Hillary as another four years of Bill Clinton. "Wouldn't we all like to go back to discussions of cigars over what we have now?" Hillary = Bill, "and that's a good thing!"
) Attack Obama on his speaking skills by claiming "plagiarism" of other themes. "If Obama even utters the "Happy Birthday" song, he's going down!!" It's so pathetic, you can even predict what the next anti-Obama threads will be about.

So, am I close? Or were there other directives from hillaryforpresident.com that I missed?

How about someone answer my question? I couldn't care less about Hillary. She's done.

I've asked the same question a few times. No one answers it.

If you're really a rabbi, why aren't you focusing on G-d in becoming a better person? Or do you believe that Obama is the Messiah?

Default Anti-Obama playbook is easy to decipher

If Obama is the Democrats' candidate, I expect the fall campaign to include lots of internet traffic from Republican sources repeating the tired old lies that Barack is some sort of "Manchurian candidate" or Trojan Horse who's really a militant black muslim who refuses to say the pledge of alliegance and will insist on taking the oath of office on the koran instead of the bible.

And several million terminally stupid potential voters will swallow it whole.

After all, bozo vote has given us two terms of G W Bush.

Yep!!! The GOP will make mincemeat out of the Obama family. At least Hillary has already been through the grinder.

Obama's "change" and "hope" message is a yawn. To be grammatically incorrect here, he ain't changin' nuthin'.

Say hello to president McCain.

This is a lousy argument for voting for Hillary.

Still no answer to an actual question about issues. I suppose Obama is all about making you feel good rather than substance.

I am confused by this argument. What exactly has Hillary won against the Republicans? Her Health Care Plan went no where. She won her Senate race in New York, hardly a Republican stronghold. I am serious here.

What has she gone face-to-face with the Republicans on and come out on top? Maybe she has, I just haven't heard what these victories are exactly. It seems that her argument is that she still exists, but is that much to brag about?

I still can't figure out why people say Obama doesn't have substance? Have you read all his stances on the issues? If most people agree that on many issues there is very little difference between Hillary and Obama, other than one is "moral" (to be trusted to do what is good for the whole) and one is not, then why aren't there more posts saying Hillary has no substance?
