Why does Obama want Hillary supporters to “Get Over It” ?

Jesse_J asked 5 years ago

What does he want us to “get over” – the fact that there are many voters out there that will not, under any circumstances, vote for this man no matter how many political ploys he creates ?
Ms. Bigglesworth: You don’t speak for me – and neither does Obama. Go shake your finger in someone elses face – it won’t work with me. I can “lay off” whatever I choose – and there is nothing “fair” about this election. Obama is a sham.

To me, it just seems that the minority of Hillary Supporters (About 15%) are acting like babies because things didn’t go their way…

Because he knows that if even if half of her eighteen million supporters don’t vote for him, he will lose. I am one of those eighteen million and I for one will never vote for him.

Millan answered 5 years ago

Because he wants their support. Hillary’s supporters were very loyal to her, and feel like the Democrat party treated her unfairly, and feel like the party had already put full endorsement into Obama.

Sandstorm answered 5 years ago

Wow, I hear many Republican´s say they will vote independent this year. I can´t say I blame them being Bush back stabbed the conservatives. I don´t begrudge them for their right to vote their conscious, and neither should you. Lay OFF the Clinton voters, all is fair, they feel betrayed by there party, as do conservatives.

Hillary supporters have an easy choice. They can vote for someone who supports all the issues she ran to promote; health care, women’s choice, withdrawal from Iraq, tax policies that favor the working man, etc. That’s Obama.

Or someone who OPPOSES everything she believes in (McCain). Hardly a way to “honor” her campaign.

Um…because he won your party’s nomination and you’re supposed to abide by the voting system? Are you saying that the existing politicians should start deciding who gets to run for office based on who they think is more “electable”…instead of abiding by an actual electing system?

aeroaero answered 5 years ago

I shouldn’t have to say this, but to answer your question: Because he won the nomination! (Or rather, will soon.)

This is what happens after a primary. The candidates of a given party come together and rally behind the winner of the primary, ideally speaking.

Look, if you want to cast a protest vote, don’t vote for McCain. Vote third party; that will send a rather pointed message to the major party on the side you voted for. The major parties WATCH minor parties; that’s part of how we keep the two-party system. When a minor party starts to win votes, the major party on that side starts shifting its policy in that direction to poach votes off the minor party. And it works.

It is because as democrats we need to unite before the Republicans take over and ruin our country even further. Those few Hillary supporters that were really crazy (hissing every time Obama’s name was mentioned is indeed lame) need to let it go so we can move forward and win this damn election. Time to bring our troops home, and try to throw out the “safe polices” so we can actually get some positive things done for a change. I don’t understand why everyone has become so complacent. Oh heaven forbid we try something different for a change! Let’s give something new a chance. I’m all for breaking the mold, because doing the same damned thing sure isn’t working!

Oh and Congress is going to do nothing to “reign McCain in”. That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. They sure haven’t done anything substantial to stop Bush’s raving lunacy. Please. Democrats stop with the vengeance march and support our party.

The whole way this issue has been framed by the Obama camp and a lot of the media is misleading. They try to paint a picture of hysterical or bitter women throwing tantrums. I’m a Hillary supporter and I don’t have anything to “get over.” Obama is not qualified, plain and simple. He has skipped more than 50% of the votes in the 143 days he showed up to vote in the US Senate. And he had an even more abysmal record of “voting present” as a state senator. I wouldn’t even hire him to be an employee.

Obama is dumb enough to believe hillary’s supporters were only supporting her because she is a woman, when in fact they did their homework on him and found him to be unfit and way too risky to be president. Even if hillary were the VP, most would still not swing back to Obama. His base of voters seem to be mindless and excuse all the mounting evidence that is out there about him. He openly distances himself from the muslim voters in this country. If he is not muslim, why does he have to do that? Why no speech on the muslim religion like he did on race? It is obvious Hillary has made a deal with him so he will pay off her campaign debt. Hillary may be so devoted to the democratic party that she is willing to forgive the DNC for their treatment of her, and promotion of obama, however many will leave the party.
