Man uses high-traffic location to share political views | uses, high, views – News – Northwest Florida Daily News

FORT WALTON BEACH – A man who flies a Confederate flag on property he owns on Beal Parkway added two large signs Wednesday to express his feelings about President Barack Obama.

“January 20, 2009, A Day of Darkness, Hussen (sic)” is written on both signs, which are each about the size of a dinner table.

Before the second sign was even in the ground, someone had called the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office to ask a deputy to take a look to make sure the first sign would not “incite something.”

Property owner Larry Ford said he put up the signs to share his opinion of Obama, who he refers to as “Hussein.”

“We’ve got a man who shouldn’t even be president,” Ford said when reached by phone Thursday. “He’s an insult to the decent, hard-working people that made this country what it is.”

By Thursday night, Ford was featured on MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann as the worst person in the world.

Moderates uneasy with Obama plan – Manu Raju –

Moderate and conservative Democrats in the Senate are starting to choke over the massive spending and tax increases in President Barack Obama’s budget plans and have begun plotting to increase their influence over the agenda of a president who is turning out to be much more liberal than they are.

A group of 14 Senate Democrats and one independent huddled behind closed doors on Tuesday, discussing how centrists in that chamber can assert more leverage on the major policy debates that will dominate this Congress.

Afterward, some in attendance made plain that they are getting jitters over the cost and expansive reach of Obama’s $3.6 trillion budget proposal.

Asked when he’d reach his breaking point, Nebraska Sen. Ben Nelson, one of the most conservative Democrats in the Senate, said: “Right now. I’m concerned about the amount that’s being offered in [Obama’s] budget.”

Crist: GOP may be exaggerating voter fraud |

Crist: GOP may be exaggerating voter fraud |
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida’s governor says his fellow Republicans may be exaggerating claims of voter fraud in the state.

Gov. Charlie Crist said Wednesday that he has confidence in Secretary of State Kurt Browning, who says there’s only been a scattering of isolated incidents.

Crist said in the closing days of any campaign “there are some who sort of enjoy chaos.” There may be more of that going on than fraud, he said.

The Republican National Committee and GOP presidential candidate John McCain have accused an activist group of fraudulently registering people in Florida and other states. It has focused on young people, minorities and others seen as more likely to support Democrat Barack Obama.

Obama ahead in Florida, Virginia in new poll

Obama ahead in Florida, Virginia in new poll
Democrat Barack Obama is running strong in traditionally Republican states, including Florida and Virginia, in a CNN/Time Magazine poll released hours before the final presidential debate Wednesday.

The poll shows Obama ahead of Republican rival John McCain by ten points in Virginia (53 to 43 percent) and five in Florida (51 to 46 percent).

Both states voted for Republican President George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004, and together represent 40 of the 270 Electoral College votes needed to win the White House.

Virginia has not voted Democratic in a presidential election since 1964.

Obama is four points ahead (51 to 47 percent) in Colorado, which boasts nine Electoral College votes and also chose Bush in the last two elections.

Colorado has not voted Democratic in a presidential election for 16 years.

In Georgia — which Bush won by 17 points in 2004 — McCain is up by only eight points (53 to 45 percent).

And the two candidates are virtually tied in Missouri, a state Bush easily carried four and eight years ago. McCain has a lead of one point over Obama, 49 to 48 percent.

“It looks like McCain has to play defense in states that Republicans have been able to count on in previous elections,” said CNN polling director Keating Holland.

“That doesn’t mean he will ultimately lose those states, but it does mean he has less time and money to spend in the swing states that are likely to decide this election.”

The surveys were conducted October 11 to 14 among 762 likely voters in Colorado; 765 in Florida; 718 in Georgia; 763 in Missouri; and 698 in Virginia. The margin of error was plus or minus 3.5 percent.
