There is a site run by the PUMA’s (Party Unity My A__), women who supported Hillary Clinton, but were upset at the way Hillary was treated by Barack Obama. It’s a bit of an edgy site, but it is interesting. Posted there right now at Hill Buzz is a comment entitled “Confessions of an Obama Blogger.” The lady who writes the article lists the tactics of the Obama campaign. When you read the tactics and think about some of the events in the campaign, it is chilling. For example–
“The internal campaign idea is to twist, distort, humiliate and finally dispirit you.
We pay people and organize people to go to all the online sites and “play the part of a clinton or mccain supporter who just switched our support for obama”
We do this to stifle your motivation and to destroy your confidence.
We did this the whole primary and it worked.
Sprinkle in mass vote confusion and it becomes bewildering. Most people lose patience and just give up on their support of a candidate and decide to just block out tv, news, websites, etc.
This surprisingly has had a huge suppressing movement and vote turnout issues.”
The article is an amazing read.
