(Totally speaking for myself here).
Man, I am so ready for this primary to be over. No doubt, I want an end and want it to be soon!!!
I couldn't pass on the latest posts, though, about Bill Clinton.
Obamabots seem to be going off the deep end here, in talking as if Bill Clinton were a stupid old man. I disagree. He knows exactly what he's doing. I think (and take it for what it is worth - as I take everyone elses' ramblings), that Mr. Bill is trying to force his wife onto the ticket. I find this to be perfectly acceptable, considering the extremely flawed caucuses and that Clinton has dominated the second half of the primary season (thus rendering, at best, an inconclusive verdict and clearly showing a certain element of buyers remorse amongst Dem. primary voters).
I don't know if any of you have ever actually worked on a campaign before. I'd like to know if you have. So many avid Obama supporters seem to, unfortunately, have a political tin ear; so much so, that I'd be surprised to find out that many of you have actually worked on a political campaign. Please let me (or ALL of us know) if you have.
To "slime" Bill for saying the "movie" thing is totally, completely intellectually dishonest of you. When someone says, "I've seen this movie before", they don't literally mean they've seen a specific movie before. It is a figure of speech.
Obama et al, according to any reasonable understanding of Bill's statement, clearly saw their lives flash before their eyes. For the last time (and, in my opinion, many many many months too late), they had a 'Trinity Church' incident one-too-many and finally decided it was time for Obama to publicly split from the church. They witnessed the horror of what this "new" pastor was saying in that highly publicized sermon - while at the same time they were (I'm sure) stunned by Obama's pathetic approval ratings among white women, which were very publicly shown to be a measly 43%.
Sorry if I break from your cult orthodoxy and dare speak my mind: Obama has a real problem and stands a gargantuan better chance of losing the general election than Hillary Clinton. Some of us, very much, depend on not having another rightwing lunatic on the Supreme Court and don't share your affinity, fantasy of annointing your cult leader as the Democratic nominee.
Hillary Clinton is dead in the water; yet, you people act as if you have the daylights scared out of you. You seem scared to death she might pull something off. And that's even though her most avid supporters are giving up hope as I write this.
Ya'll in the Obama Cult would do your cause a much greater service by following your cult leader and heaping praise on Hillary. He has a mighty force of paid political consultants and his message is very much market tested. The only way he can win is if Hillary Clinton gives him the go-ahead - and throws her support behind him.
I know that ya'll on the left-leaning blogs and those among the talking/bobbling heads in the mainstream media have convinced yourselves that Hillary Clinton is out there on that branch alone. You are so terribly, patheticlly wrong. There are almost 20 million people out there with her. 95% of whom are lifelong, avid Democrats. If she wants to take it to the convention and make it the dog fight (I think) it should be, then we are there with her.. Barack Hussein Obama is, according to the NYTimes, "Wheezing" across the finish line. Clearly, Clinton has won the second half of this primary and there is a clear case of buyers remorse among Democrats.
If she doesn't decide to pull a knife and if Obama has the 'audacity' to snubb her and not offer her VP, then good luck Democrats. Your rules have allowed a complete and total lemon to obtain the nomination. When he loses, I'm sure a great many of you will cry "Swift Boat!" But, the fault will lie with you and not Republicans. It will lie with you and your self-righteousness, with all of you who were so willing to walk the plank to fulfill your political fantacies.
For the life of me I cannot understand why rank-and-file Democrats are such p*ssies!?!?!?!? Can anyone enlighten me?
