Hillary Campaign Running on Fumes

And they act like it,  since they are drugged up on their “whopping” Pennsylvania victory,  which was yet another “huge win” that will prove to be way too little,  even WAYER too late,  for there are not enough states left to net her to within even 100 delegates of Obama.  Sorry Hil-ROD.  You smell what BARACK is cookin’? (stole that Continue Reading

Pennsylvania Governor Has Pretty Low View of "Conservative Whites"

A good comparison test case: let’s look at the real condescension. Let’s look at the real and ULGY form of condescension by surrogates for the Clinton campaign: “You’ve got conservative whites here, and I think there are some whites who are probably not ready to vote for an African-American candidate,” Who said that? That was Gov. Ed Rendell who is Continue Reading

For it, Before She Was Against It

It was only a matter of time before someone notices that Hillary thought the very same things that Obama is now getting battered over;  the “unfortunate (from a Clinton perspective) proclivity to vote on life-style rather than economic issues” What hypocrisy and political opportunism.  She disgusts me. I have been in meetings with the Clintons and their advisors where very Continue Reading

The Irony of the ‘Bitter’ Pill

The irony here is that the very folks who voted against their own best interests are now being encouraged to do so again by this very flack,  aimed at a candidate that is INFINITELY more likely to help them,  the “bitter” than the platitiude pushing phonies like Hillary,  and by a more sincere, yet still sickly platitude pushing McCain.  Neither Continue Reading

Obama’s ‘Bitter’ Pill

The key word here is bitter.  Bad choice,  but what he says is right on.  It is reminiscent of Thomas Frank’s book What’s The Matter With Kansas? How Conservatives Won the Heart of America, which explored why heart of America conservatives vote against their own interests. (In essence,  by getting politically gamed by cynical politics that play upon their conservative Continue Reading

Obama hit for saying some voters ‘bitter’ – Barack Obama News- msnbc.com

Hillary: “Pennsylvanians don’t need a president who looks down on them,” she said. “They need a president who stands up for them.” Obama hit for saying some voters ‘bitter’ – Barack Obama News- msnbc.com Oh yeah, right,  Mrs. 109 million dollars Tucker Bounds, a spokesman for McCain, said Friday: “Only an elitist would say that people vote their values only Continue Reading

Hillary, You Already Failed the 3am Phone Call Test

This is the number one reason why I no longer trust you.  This is why I have not supported your candidacy as the Democratic nominee candidacy from day one.   The phone call came.  The moment of decision came and gone,  and then you were not a critic of George Bush until most of the country saw the light. I don’t Continue Reading

Hillary’s Pastor on Rev. Wright

Interesting……. A STATEMENT CONCERNING THE REV. JEREMIAH WRIGHT The Reverend Jeremiah Wright is an outstanding church leader whom I have heard speak a number of times. He has served for decades as a profound voice for justice and inclusion in our society. He has been a vocal critic of the racism, sexism and homophobia which still tarnish the American dream. Continue Reading

Robert Reich pleads for Sanity Among Democrats

Who is Robert Reich.  If you listen to NPR,  you know this: Robert B. Reich is Professor of Public Policy at the Goldman School of Public Policy at the University of California at Berkeley. He has served in three national administrations, most recently as secretary of labor under President Bill Clinton. He has written eleven books, including The Work of Continue Reading

Why Hillary is Somewhere Between Obama and Bush

Because of fear mongering tactics like this (hat tip to The Mundane Life of Thunder Jones: New Hillary Ad! )  This moves her in Bush’s direction.  That should be considered an insult,  and Hillary brought this on herself.  The already sharply dwindling amount of respect I had for her has dwindled even further and faster in this campaign.  It was Continue Reading

Clinton Still in the ‘Silly Season’

This is absurd,  and manipulative in the worst way: the attack that received the most pop, on cable television and blogs, came after a photograph of Mr. Obama in ceremonial African garb appeared on the Drudge Report, and the item’s author, Matt Drudge, claimed that the image was provided by a Clinton staff member. Mr. Obama’s campaign manager, David Plouffe, Continue Reading

Clinton camp begins 11th hour effort – David Paul Kuhn – Politico.com

  Sen. Hillary Clinton’s campaign has begun an eleventh hour effort to implore Democrats to support her by framing her as the strongest general election candidate the party could put forth. No, Hillary,  the opposite is true.   I think your candidacy would be the best hope for the Republicans,  since you would be the most likely thing to unite the Continue Reading

SuperDelegates and Democracy

Charlie has the same reaction to this as I do.  These are “establishment” people with some sort of “check” on the movement Obama has amongst the fed up in this country.  Hillary has the gall to start calling Obama the “establishment” (which I thought a bit funny considering who SHE is,  and what the Clinton Administration in the 90’s was,  Continue Reading

Hillary’s manipulations of Obama’s ‘ideas’ remark

My animosity toward Hillary (mostly existing because of her support for the war and her taking money from Health Care companies)  has just risen to new heights,  due to the inane stunt she is pulling , twisting Obama’s words to absurd conclusions.  It’s insulting.  She said in the debate that Obama “liked” Reagan’s ideas.  I see nothing but the opposite Continue Reading
