She’s enjoying this…

September 10, 2008

Hillary Rodham Clinton is out on the campaign trail, pitching for Barak H. Obama, but that’s it. She’s not going to attack Gov. Sarah Palin.

The New York Observer has an interesting observation on the “relations” between the George Soros approved Barak Hussein Obama far left extremist wing of the democrat party and the “we can actually win national elections” Clinton wing of the party.

The consensus there, based on conversations with present and former Clinton advisers, is that the Obama campaign has isolated itself both as a result of its desire to break with the Clintons and establish itself as the future of the Democratic Party, and out of primary-victory-inspired hubris.

The article also has some good Team Clinton insight on why “Community Organizer” Obama is behind in the polls:

With the McCain campaign running tactical circles every day around the Obama outfit—which has failed, somewhat unbelievably, to come up with even a semi-compelling response to the Palin selection—one might think Mrs. Clinton, to say nothing of her sidelined husband, would be a useful surrogate on the counterattack right about now. Apparently, the Obama campaign does not agree.

“My concern is that I see them as totally reactive right now as opposed to getting out there on their own and saying what the hell they are about,” said Leon Panetta, a former chief of staff to Bill Clinton who has advised Mr. Obama. “They seem to be intimidated by the Palin pick. They seem to be intimidated by how the Republicans are coming at them on change. And you cannot win if you are constantly on defense.”

Obama, who was seen as “The One” by the hard far left wing of his party, is not winning in a fifty state landslide, as they predicted. He’s getting beat by Senator McCain because Senator McCain is acting inside Obama’s decision loop and Obama is reacting like the political rookie he is on the national level.

Personally, I think Hillary Rodham Clinton, and William Jefferson Clinton, are watching Obama founder with a smile. A smile and and a hopeful eye on 2012.

Fun times ahead in Denver

August 24, 2008

Politico reports that the Obama-Clinton feud is back in swing.

One senior Obama supporter said the Clinton associates negotiating on her behalf act like “Japanese soldiers in the South Pacific still fighting after the war is over.”

A prominent Obama backer said some of Clinton’s lieutentants negotiating with the Obama team are “bitter enders” who presume that, rather than the Clintons reconciling themselves to Obama’s victory, it is up to Obama to accommodate them.

In fact, some senior veterans of Clinton’s presidential campaign do believe this.

“He has not fully reconciled,” said one political operative close to the Clintons, “and he has not demonstrated that he accepts the Clintons and the Clinton wing of the party.”

PUMAs are on the prowl!

August 21, 2008

Hot Air reports:

Hillary Clinton’s supporters will not go quietly, it seems. According to a Scripps-Howard report this morning, unnamed backers of Hillary have begun a “massive” e-mail campaign insisting that she won more votes and is the only electable candidate in 2008. Perhaps, in consideration of the polling free-fall Barack Obama has experienced this summer, they may have a point (via TMV)

This should make for some interesting political theater in Denver.

Shifting democrat standards

August 16, 2008

It is interesting to watch the shifting standards for the office of President and Vice-President. Senator Quayle was attacked as being far too inexperienced to be on a Presidential ticket. He had completed two terms in the House and was on his second term in the Senate.

Obama, with fraction of that experience is now the democrat choice for the next President of the United States of America.

In 1992 and 1996, Clinton’s lack of military experience (he was an admitted draft dodger and protested against the US military on foreign soil) was not an issue when he was running against US Military combat veterans.

In 2000 & 2004, the democrat candidate’s military experience was touted as a key reason why they were more qualified to be Commander in Chief.

Now that the situation is reversed again, democrat operatives are claiming that military experience is a liability.

Barak Obama, like John Kerry before him, has never been involved in an election at a national level. Nor has he (or Kerry) ever had to run in an election where there was any serious competition (Obama actually won his first race by having the other democrat contenders removed from the primary ballot).

Denver will be interesting. The PUMAs are pissed and have a strong argument that Hillary Clinton is the more electable candidate in November.
Given that Hillary has conned Obama into giving both her and Billy Jeff speaking slots, the convention may end up being more about Bill and Hillary than Barak.

Remember that it is the Clinton’s best interest if one of two things happen:

1. Hillary managed to obtain the nomination at the convention. Low probability, but they are probably working that angle.

2. Barak H. Obama loses to the much more experienced Senator John McCain. This gives Hillary another shot at the White House in 2012.

Let’s see who really runs the show in Denver.

August 14, 2008

The George Soros bought and paid for nutroots branch of the DNC think it will be their show.

Hillary Rodham Clinton and her posse have other plans.

Maureen Dowd hits the high points of the Clinton Master Plan.

She’s amazed at how easy it was to snatch Denver away from the Obama saps. Like taking candy from a baby, except Beanpole Guy doesn’t eat candy.

Now they’ve made Barry’s convention all about them – their dissatisfaction and revisionism and barely disguised desire to see him fail. Whatever insincere words of support the Clintons muster, their primal scream gets louder: He can’t win! He can’t close the deal! We told you so!

Hillary’s orchestrating a play within the play in Denver. Just as Hamlet used the device to show that his stepfather murdered his father, Hillary will try to show the Democrats they chose the wrong savior.

Her former aide Howard Wolfson fanned the divisive flames Monday on ABC News, arguing that Hillary would have beaten Obama in Iowa and become the nominee if John Edwards’ affair had come out last year

Wednesday will be all Bill. The networks will rerun his churlish comments from Africa about Obama’s readiness to lead and his South Carolina meltdowns. TV will have more interest in a volcanic ex-president than a genteel veep choice.

Obama also allowed Hillary supporters to insert an absurd statement into the platform suggesting that media sexism spurred her loss and that “demeaning portrayals of women … dampen the dreams of our daughters.”

Oh ya, there will be some great political theater in Denver this year.

But Wait! There’s More! The Daily News reports that Hillary is bringing in her own hand picked propaganda team. Ok, she calls them a “video production team.” 😉

She’s already snagged plum speaking gigs for herself, her husband and their daughter, so what else does Hillary Clinton want at the Denver convention?

Her own production team for the introductory video.

Democratic officials told the Daily News Wednesday that the video preceding Hillary’s Aug. 26 prime-talk talk will be produced by Arkansas pals Harry Thomason and Linda Bloodworth-Thomason

Harry Thomason is the more controversial of the pair: he was involved in the firing of White House travel office employees in President Clinton’s first term, testified before a grand jury investigating the Monica Lewinsky scandal and lobbied Bill Clinton to pardon two Arkansas men in the final hours of his presidency.

Will Barak even know what hit him?

The real story.

August 13, 2008

Let us keep in mind that the real story isn’t that democrat candidate for President cheated on his cancer stricken wife and lied to the American public. Hell, since Billy Jeff Clinton lowered the bar on screwing around, cheating on your wife is considered Presidential behavior in leftist democrat circles.

The real story is the DNC/MSM deliberately ignored the story for so long.

They were quick to publish rumors about Senator McCain and a blond lobbyist, even through they admitted they were rumors, but sat on a much firmer story about democrat presidential candidate John “Silky Pony” Edwards.

The question now being raised is if the DNC/MSM media blackout over John Edwards and his blond mistress cost Hillary Rodham Clinton the win in Iowa?

If Hillary had won Iowa, which she probably would have if the “independent media” was doing their job and exposed Edwards for the lying adulterer that he is, Obama would have never picked up the early momentum he rode to victories in mostly caucus states.

You can bet that the PUMAs are going to pick up on this. Things may get interesting in Denver.

The return of Hillary Rodham Clinton

August 7, 2008

By way of Fox News:

[Hillary Rodham] Clinton said that her delegates want to have a role and feel that their “legitimacy is validated,” before the group moves forward to back Obama.

“I happen to believe that we will come out stronger if people feel that their voices were heard and their views respected. I think that is a very big part of how we actually come out unified,” Clinton, D-N.Y., said to applause.

“Because I know from just what I’m hearing, that there’s incredible pent-up desire. And I think that people want to feel like, ‘OK, it’s a catharsis, we’re here, we did it, and then everybody get behind Senator Obama.’ That is what most people believe is the best way to go,” she said.

But several of Clinton’s supporters are insistent that the former first lady get a vote on the convention floor. One self-identified delegate at the California fundraiser said a petition had been formed to put Clinton’s name on the ballot.

Remember that the margin that Barak Obama beat Hillary Clinton by in the elected/caucused delegates is smaller than the number of the democrat party overseers, also known as the so-called “Super Delegates.”

It is those democrat Party Overseers/Uber-Delegates that are going decide who is the democrat nominee, not the democrat primary voters (more of which voted for HRC than BO).

Perhaps those democrat Party Overseers are noticing that Barak H. Obama isn’t going anywhere in the polls. In fact it is Senator John McCain who got a boost in the polls after Obama’s European tour.

Hillary’s supporters are pointing this out, and perhaps HRC is making some quiet phone calls too.

Angry PUMAs

August 4, 2008

The Hillary Rodham Clinton supporters are still angry over the hostile treatment they are still getting from the DNC and the Obama faithful.

Sunday Morning Talk Shows

August 3, 2008

Former democrat operative George Swaythepopulas gave democrat Speaker of the House “San Fran Nan” Pelosi (Worst. Speaker. Ever.) free rein to spout her talking points.

Meet the Press had Senator Lieberman (moderate, sane democrat and McCain supporter) debating Senator John Kerry (far left democrat billionaire who only pays federal tax at a 12% rate, and Barak H. Obama supporter).

Update: democrat Tom Daschle, a major Obama supporter, is on Fox News Sunday. Daschle is a lying weasel. He always has been, always will be. Daschle lies boldly and with a straight face. The truth is not part of that man’s genetic makeup.

The lone Right of Center member of the Meet the Press round table made a what is probably a highly accurate prediction. He predicted that Hillary Clinton will make a good speech at the DNC, not a great speech, but a good speech. Then, in November, she will vote for John McCain.
That does make sense based on her over riding goal to take control of the White House. Her best bet to inflict her socialist policies on America is to run in 2012. She needs Senator John McCain to win in 2008 for that to happen.

Check the temperature in Satan’s summer cottage. Juan Williams is agreeing with Bill Kristol on how Obama screwed the pooch by repeatedly playing the race card.

Still a large rift in the democrat party

July 18, 2008

The rift between the mainstream democrats and the George Soros bought and paid for hard far leftist extremist Obama backers isn’t quite scabbed over yet.

Top Clinton Donors Meet with McCain Camp

The Wall Street Journal reports that Carly Fiorina, former Hewlett-Packard CEO and senior adviser to Sen. John McCain, met with a group of 25 prominent supporters and fundraisers for Sen. Hillary Clinton at a private home in Westchester County, NY. The group included several so-called “Hillraisers,” each of whom have raised in excess of $100,000 for Clinton’s failed primary campaign. The meeting was repeatedly sought by the Hillary supporters and is at least the second such meeting between backers of Clinton and the McCain campaign.

An organizer of the meeting, Amy Siskind, said that the pro-Hillary groups represented pledged to help deliver, “hundreds of thousands and maybe millions of votes,” to McCain if the groups find areas of agreement between themselves and his campaign.

It looks like the possibility of riots in Denver is on the rise again.
