Bloviating Zeppelin: Consuming Demorats

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Consuming Demorats


The two Demorat presidential contenders, Barack HUSSEIN Obama and Hillary RODHAM Clinton continue, much to my public glee, delight and perpetual entertainment, to slash, hack, stab, parry and thrust knives into their opponent's soft white (hey, Barack isn't 100% "street cred," say a percentile of blacks) underbelly:

Here, the Clinton Camp emphasizes the HUSSEIN aspect of Obama.

Here, the Obama Camp fires back, accusing the CC of ""shameful offensive fear-mongering" by circulating the photo as a clear attempt to point out Obama's Muslim background (as an aside, anyone have any doubt that Obama will be sworn in on a family Koran?).

Some think that Hillary is running a series of last-ditch efforts to somehow connect or re-connect with a Demorat electorate that seems to be favoring Obama.

Bob Novak seems to think that, for the Good Of The Order, Hillary needs to go -- but who will tell her?
Even before Sen. Barack Obama won his ninth straight contest against Sen. Hillary Clinton, in Wisconsin last Tuesday, wise old heads in the Democratic Party were asking this question: Who will tell her that it's over, that she cannot win the presidential nomination and that the sooner she leaves the race, the more it will improve the party's chances of defeating Sen. John McCain in November?


ABC News says Hillary has eight days to pull the rug out from under Obama, or face annihilation.

After shoving the photo of Obama about, The New York Times seems to think Clinton has left her Angry Place for her new Sarcastic Place.

From NBC News:

The latest NBC News delegate hard count:
DEMOCRATS
Obama 1,192
Clinton 1,036
There are 16 delegates unallocated, including 10 in Colorado, 2 in Maryland and one each in Hawaii, Abroad, New York, Tennessee.

Superdelegate Count
Clinton 257
Obama 194
(Obama has gained 24 publicly declared superdelegates since Super Tuesday, Feb. 5. Clinton has lost a net of three.)

GRAND TOTAL
Obama 1,386
Clinton 1,293
REPUBLICANS
McCain 930
(AP allocates 102 more for McCain to bring total to 1,032 -- just 159 short of nomination)Romney 293
Huckabee 246
There are 35 unallocated, including 20 in Louisiana, 5 from WA caucus, 5 from WA primary, 3 from WI, 2 from TN.

Romney, though "out," is still ahead of Huckabee who is "in."
Me?

I think Clinton made one of her final missteps by releasing the new Obama photo. This plays well with me and my ilk, of course, in an entertaining vein (as opposed to, say, her slit vein) but won't play well with any number of Demorats. The Daily Kos wrote:

So this picture of Obama in Somali (or Kenyan) garb has everyone in a tizzy right now. Me, I think it's kind of cool to see Obama in tribal clothing.


Meaning: the photo isn't Playing In Poughkeepsie -- or anywhere else for that matter. Naturally, in a standard style, Kos cozys back up to the Clintonistas by saying, hey, they didn't really mean it and, after all, how can anyone keep track of 700 staffers?

Hillary The Unbeatable, Hillary The Dues-Payer, Hillary The Anointed, may just have her ass handed to her in the next month or so. It's not a pretty picture -- on any number of levels. She and/or her Campaignistas do not understand the tenets of Political Marketing 101:
1. Attack ads and strategies do not work and they never will.
2. Keep on track: what can you do that is positive?
3. Be consistent, not confusing; these days one asks: which Hillary Clinton are we programmed to see this week? Crying Hillary? Confused Hillary? Strident Hillary? Attacking Hillary? Angry Hillary? Sarcastic Hillary?

Hillary's Theme: there is no theme --
Barack's Theme: "Change." Beautiful. Empty but brilliant because you can feature Obama as whatever you wish, in your own mind.

I've written that I believe Obama could beat McCain handily; now there are little covert whispers on, amazingly, the Demorat side wondering: "This Obama -- is he another McGovern?"

What say you?

Look at Obama, he won’t put his hand over his heart during the playing of the National Anthem or during a recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance…

When he is making public appearances, when he is doing political advertisements or when he is involved in a debate, he WILL NOT wear an American flag pin on his lapel…

Obama claims he loves America, Obama claims he is the one that can and will bring ‘change’ to America but he can’t tell you what that ‘change’ will be, he claims to be ready to lead from Day 1 but he’s not even done with a 1st term in the Senate, what prepares him to lead anything??

This individual is a disgrace to America, the flag and the people of the United States of America and anyone that can support this ‘empty suit’ is as hollow as he is, to the American Dems, ask yourselves, is that the guy you really want in the White House?? A guy that won’t even make a half-hearted attempt at patriotism??

Barack Hussein Obama, WRONG for America…

Clinton?? Just a recycled version of Bill and the 'WE are the president' thing...

TF: excellent points. But people hear and see what they wish. Obama will immediately flush $845 BILLION of our tax dollars away -- he has specifically said so, in re the "American obligation to solve global poverty." His experience? Negligible. A large, bulbous ZERO.

Indeed.

I was at 3 parties last night talking to many Republicans and Conservatives friends, all voted for Bush. I was amazed on how many have jumped on the Osama band wagon.

It's just not Democrats supporting him, he's pulling people in from all over, all parties.

For being so young, he's very smart; he's being intentionally ambiguous and vague, he's generally positive and hasn't run a perceived smear campaign against Clinton, he speaks well, women think he's handsome, he resonates on an EMOTIVE level which has the ability to connect with many.

I guess the "change" people want is socialism. guess since it worked so well for the USSR and Cuba it should be the answer to all our ills, right? why do wealthy people go all gaga over socialism? I don't get it, if they feel so guilty about being wealthy, why don't they just give all their money to the government so they can feel better about themselves?

Mark: certainly, absolutely NOTHING is stopping the Left from "donating" ALL their monies to the U.S. government.

Funny; I don't see them doing so.

No. Just YOUR money.

surely you don't mean socialism is all about the big wig party members lording their power over the "little guy"? have you forgotten? socialism equals the playing field, makes everyone the same. that's why Fidel castro was just every bit as poor as the lowest cuban peasant. and Vladimir Putin is a pennyless, poor, civil servant! selflessly looking after the "little guy" as all good socialists do.
