Attention All Texas Republicans and Independents!!
On March 4th, Texas Republicans and Independents will have an opportunity to end Hillary Clinton’s (and Bill’s) presidential ambitions once and for all!
Since Texas has on open primary, Republicans and Independents should sign in at their polling place and request a Democratic ballot. They should then vote for Barack Obama. Even James Carville admits that if Hillary loses Texas, “she’s done!” Republicans can help make this a reality!!! Just think, no more Clintons in the White House!
Voting Democratic this one time will have NO effect on your ability to vote in the next Republican primary or obviously on your vote in November. Since John McCain has the Republican nomination locked up, voting for McCain or Huckabee at this point will have no effect on the outcome on the Republican side.
After you vote during early voting or on March 4th, you ARE NOT done! Report back to your regular polling place at 7PM on March 4th to sign the Barack Obama list for caucus delegates. In a little known Texas voting quirk, 67 delegates to the Democratic convention will be seated because of these caucuses. This is a full one-third of the total number of Texas delegates. For Hillary to lose, she has to lose the primary votes AND the caucus votes. I urge you to vote against Hillary Clinton by voting for Barack Obama.
Please forward this e-mail to all your Republican and Independent friends so that we can help ensure the Clinton’s defeat on March 4th!!!
This has to be the most dishonest thing I have ever read. Every American should be upset about this. It appears the Republican party wants to run against Obama. They are afraid of the Clinton’s so once again they are out to destory them.
Here is a small part of the article:
The tactic, called crossover voting, allowed Obama to capture the delegates in nearly all the red state caucuses, while trimming Clinton’s delegate haul in the blue state primaries enough to keep her trailing. Republicans for Obama, for one, was not bashful in making its case in an email appeal linked to its home page before the March 4th contests. “Since Texas has an open primary,” the appeal read, “Republicans and Independents should sign in at their polling place and request a Democratic ballot. They should then vote for Barack Obama… Just think, no more Clintons in the White House!”
And the G.O.P. links to the Obama campaign don’t end there. The Times of London reported on March 2nd that Obama is interviewing conservative Republican lawmakers like Senators Chuck Hagel and Richard Lugar for key positions in his cabinet, if he’s elected in November. “Senior advisers confirmed that Hagel, a highly decorated Vietnam war veteran and one of McCain’s closest friends in the Senate, was considered an ideal candidate for defence secretary.” the story revealed. “Some regard the outspoken Republican as a possible vice-presidential nominee although that might be regarded as a ‘stretch’.” Lugar is being evaluated as a potential secretary of state.
This has to be on of the dirtiest tricks ever seen in American Politics……
