2008 FlashBack: CNN Says Obama Won His Senate Primary by Tossing Ballots Without Matching Signatures


Back in 2008 CNN wrote a glowing piece on Obama’s first Senate run. They harkened back to several years back when a young, fresh-faced Illinois Senate candidate named Barack Hussien Obama was running for his first seat — and get this one — CNN called it “hardball” when Obama used “election rules” to win his primary.


During that Senate race, Obama beat his primary opponent by getting ballots tossed out that did not have matching signatures.

Yep, you heard that right…

And according to the 2008 CNN piece, Obama was just using “bare-knuckle” tactics and “election rules” to win. He was playing “hardball.”

What a hero, right? 🙄

CNN actually celebrated Obama for that move…However, today, President Trump is vilified by CNN and all other mainstream media outlets, including our biggest enemy Fox News, for trying to do the exact same thing.

Funny how that works, right?


From CNN

Sen. Barack Obama showed he was willing to use bare-knuckle tactics during his first race in Chicago.

It may take a Solomon-like decision to appease both candidates.

Clinton has argued that the primary results of two of the nation’s largest states should count because, otherwise, millions of voters are being disenfranchised. Obama has said he is willing to work out some compromise.

But he is insistent that the primary results are invalid because the two states failed to follow party rules and that the rules are the rules.

The DNC has not seated the Florida and Michigan delegates because the two states violated party edicts in holding their primaries early.

Although neither candidate campaigned in the two states, Clinton won about 50 percent of the Florida vote, compared with 33 percent for Obama. She won 55 percent of the vote in Michigan, where Obama’s name was not on the ballot.

In his first race for office, seeking a state Senate seat on Chicago’s gritty South Side in 1996, Obama effectively used election rules to eliminate his Democratic competition.

As a community organizer, he had helped register thousands of voters. But when it came time to run for office, he employed Chicago rules to invalidate the voting petition signatures of three of his challengers.

Our media is shameless and their motives and agenda are so obvious. Not to mention the Dems, led by Obama, who are demanding Trump concede this farce of an election – I wonder, did anyone demand Obama do the same back in 2008? Of course they didn’t.

Let’s be honest – we have the worst propaganda media on the planet…and they still have far too much power.

Right now, media jackals, led by the traitors over at Fox News are not only “deciding” elections for the American people, but they’re trying to dictate how this process will play out.

The main thing we need to focus on right now is not getting gaslit by the lying fake news media and supporting Trump as he goes through this very legal and “bare-knuckle” process.

President Trump fighting hard and he deserves his day in court. After all, he’s representing 70 million of us and the Constitution.

This election will go to the courts and I still believe we can win. I won’t believe otherwise until the last gavel hits the wood.

Don’t give up and don’t ever give in.
