OBAMA AS ROAD KILL – Part One

The first political ad picturing Barack Obama with his arm around the Rev. Jeremiah Wright has just been released by the North Carolina Republican Party (NCGOP) . The cable networks have been playing it for several days along with companion pieces of Rev. Wright and his Bill Moyers interview on PBS. The ad ends with the tag line, “too extreme for North Carolina.” (Some would say, too extreme for this country, a little voice said internally.) Welcome to fall campaign. Fasten your seat belts because this is going to be a bumpy ride.

Amid the controversy surrounding the North Carolina political ad, the New York Times has just taken Hillary and her campaign to task for “negative campaigning and the destruction of the Democratic Party. Apparently pointing out an opponent’s weaknesses or your own strengths is now labeled negative by those determined to anoint Barak, and the rest of us be damned. As I read the editorial, I wondered which campaign the Times has been monitoring; because it bears little resemblance to the one Hillary’s supporters have been a part of. Are the people of the New York Times living in a parallel universe? Do these people ever step outside of themselves? Give me a break!

Of course, Obama and Rev. Wright continue to turn a deaf ear to what “ typical white folk” think and feel, as they dis Hillary and her supporters (of all colors and hues), and as Obama’s surrogates intentionally use race baiting as a tactic to viciously attack anyone who questions Obama’s credentials to serve as president. Obama’s air of superiority has become so insufferable that I can barely look at him for more than a few seconds.

This past week he has given us another stellar performance. First we had to endure his remarks about his “unfair” treatment during the ABC debate while he condescendingly flipped Hillary off; class guy, that Barack. Then we had Obama using product placement during one of his speeches with, not one but three, supporters standing behind him in Abercrombie & Fitch tees.

I had to laugh at that one. I mean if you want to show working class American how you are one on them and can relate to their problems, the way to do that is to frame yourself behind three people in A & F tees! This man is clueless. What’s more, wasn’t it A & F that was accused of discriminatory hiring practices in 2004, wanting to put only the company’s best white foot forward when it hired sales people?

Should Obama be chosen to be the presidential nominee in November because Howard Dean and Democratic Super delegates that don’t have the sense God gave a goose, one can predict with certainty that the country will witness another McGovern Death Spiral. Yes, after many months of campaigning the Democratic Party will have (once again) found a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory! Ladies and gentlemen, form a circle please; lift your rifles, ready, aim, shoot!

I am currently reading Confessions of a Political Hitman by Stephen Marks. The sub title is . . . My Secret Life Of Scandal, Corruption, Hypocrisy, And Dirty Attacks That Decide Who Gets Elected (And Who Doesn’t.) This book should be required reading of every democrat, including the Obamakin Kool Aid kids, and most especially, Howard Dean and Democratic Super delegates. His book is fascinating because it is an insider’s look at how the Republicans continue to beat Democratic candidates with dirty tricks and assorted assaults designed to keep them in power.

Mr. Marks worked as a Republican operative digging up dirt on opposition candidates, mostly Democratic candidates. I had forgotten how badly some of these candidates beaten. I have said this on more than one occasion. The Republicans have forgotten more about dirty tricks than the Democrats will ever know and this book proves it.

Want to know how the Republicans are going to defeat Obama? That’s in part two of Obama as Road Kill.

    The Bill Moyers interview of Rev. Wright is worth seeing.

    Whoever but together the piece that has been re-run ad nauseum knowingly took bits and pieces out of context, deliberately lied and should be put in jail.

    I saw Moyers interview and it speaks for itself. Rev. Wright is not helping Obama.

    Nothing has been taken out context, nor are there any lies in the piece. Perhaps you would be kind enough to point out these lies.

    That having been said, might I respectfully point out that suggesting a writer should be jailed for opinions you disagree with, is childish and un-American.

    You got me there! I was, indeed, being childish in suggesting that someone who is deliberately distorting the truth and inciting people to vote for the wrong person.

    Unfortunately, here is no law against taking something which is saying one thing and cherry-picking certain words and pretend that those words are representative of what was said.

    If you say that nothing was taken out of context, either you have not seen the Bill Moyers interview or you are irreversibly biased against Obama.

    Sportsone,

    Love the blog.

    Obama’s campaign is all a matter of lighting. And mirrors, smoke and snake oil salesmen trying to sell up a quick cure cheap.

    Keep up the excellent blogging!

    and McCain is running based on a war hero status that has been exagerated. He is ignorant of basic economics, Iraqi politics. He hs a hot temper and has quirks of superstition and compussive gambling.

    Gasdocpol:

    Sir, certainly you jest!

    You think I am capable of inciting people to vote (for wrong person, of course!) Inciting? How does one do that? Do you think I conjure up the spirits or cast some kind of spell, perhaps? Sir, did you skip your meds, again?

    If I am capable of inciting people to vote, I need to contact the Clinton campaign and offer my services right away! Do you think this will work with my banker? Wow, what’s next; inciting Bank of America to give my company more money for expansion?

    BTW, it is apparent that in obsessing about the few comments that I made about Obama that you completely missed the point of the post.

    The point was the Republicans will grind Obama into the ground with negative campaign ads. You might not like what I’ve said, but that doesn’t mean that I’m lying.

    I urge you to read Confessions of a Political Hitman. You need to get another perspective.

    gasdocpol,

    We meet again…

    Are you trying to limit speech? I am confused, I thought you were liberal. Speech should be free…even if it is incorrect….even if it is a lie…even if you do not like it.

    For example, when you say that John McCain is not a war hero…..you do not have any facts to back this up, you may have links to conspiracy theories…but you do not have any facts……your statements, to me, are ignorant….but, I love that you have the right to state unproven conspiracy theories.

    I can’t stand Keith Olbermann, he distorts the truth like no other on television….but he should keep his job……..Why do so many who frequent the Daily Kos, or coincidently watch Olbermann, want O’Reilly BANNED…..this is dangerous.

    I have family in Cuba who is still not permitted to speak an opposing point of view, or see me, or anyone else in my family….when you limit speech you are walking down a dangerous path.

    Ray, Do YOU have any evidence that McCain IS a war hero?

    20 hours of combat on 23 combat missions that were neither exceptional nor heroic. Is it the 5 1/2 years as a POW ? (He DID give more than name ,rank and serial number. Maybe much more)

    Father and grandfather were 4 star admirals,

    A hot temper that might give him credibility as a warrior in the eyes of some.

    If you can tell me why he is a war hero, please do.

    conspiracy theory? lol
