Choke on it

Choke on it

Dear Hillary supporters:

You have had to swallow a lot of pride, but this should make you choke:

“Change We Can Believe In”, a key Obama campaign slogan, was meant   as a slur against Mrs Clinton’s personality, intended to highlight how she “couldn’t be trusted or believed in when it comes to change”, according to a memo seen by America’s New Yorker magazine.

“She’s driven by political calculation not conviction, regularly backing away and shifting positions … She embodies trench warfare vs Republicans, and is consumed with beating them rather than unifying the country and building consensus to get things done. She prides herself on working the system, not changing it,” the October 2007 memo added.

The memo was written by David Axelrod, a political adviser, as Obama’s   nomination campaign stalled against Hillary Clinton during the height of the   2008 Democratic nomination process.

Rather than fight out their differences in policy, Mr Axelrod told Obama that   the only way to secure a defeat was to attack Mrs Clinton’s character.

It’s what he’s about.

Obama went to war with Hillary – expect no difference with his approach to confronting Newt. But Newt’s a scrapper himself. Call him a b*st*rd if you want, but I’d be willing to wager there is more than one person worried at the WH.

DocWahala – only regrets he will only have BBC news to watch when he returns to Korea.

Well, it worked didn’t it. People tend to repeat behaviors that successfully meet their needs or desires. In this respect, there is no hope for a change.

Romney combining the McCain and Axelrod playbooks. What could go wrong?

We really need someone who will confront Obama’s lies. One example of these lies is that pushing green energy will create lots of new jobs. Those of us who have a even a nodding acquaintance with economics know that only government subsidies can make green energy successful, at least for now, and that these subsidies hurt the economy instead of helping it, thus reducing jobs on balance. So far, no one has raised this except in a much more general way.

Seems to me that Newt would be much more effective in pursuing this kind of argument than the others, but I would like to see all the candidates have go at it. There are many more similar examples of Obama/Democrat lies about things most voters would find important. Maybe the candidates are saving this low-hanging fruit for the general election?

Some Hillary supporters saw what he was doing – where else did the PUMSs come from. But many Hillary supporters bought the negative stuff – and when with a candidate they could feel righteous about supporting.

As a Hillary supporter I can testify that it was shocking to see recycled right-wing memes being used against Hillary by fellow Democrats.

But that was nothing compared to when the Obama campaign began playing the race card. Of all the things the Clinton’s were accused of in the nineties, racism wasn’t one of them.

The Obama/Clinton marriage is about as dysfunctional as the Clinton/Clinton marriage.

The memo says:
“She’s driven by political calculation not conviction, regularly backing away and shifting positions … She embodies trench warfare vs Republicans, and is consumed with beating them rather than unifying the country and building consensus to get things done. She prides herself on working the system, not changing it,” the October 2007 memo added.

Substitute “Obama” for “She” and you’ve pretty well summed up the last three years.

“…the only way to secure a defeat was to attack Mrs. Clinton’s character.”

Well Bucko, when you’re running against a person of poor character like Hillary Clinton, it’s totally appropriate to make an issue of it.

What’s really poetic justice about this is that Hillary Clinton couldn’t attack Obama as a person of poor character because for years she worked so hard to perpetuate the myth that if anyone attacked a black person about issues of character, they were racists.

And double poetic justice is that we would really have to sit down and try to figure out between Hillary Clinton and Obama, who was worse!

My thought was “Pot, meet Kettle …”

or is that racist?
