Hillary's Mistakes

Hillary made the mistake of being overconfident. After all she was worldwide famous and Obama was an obscure local politician.

As a consequence of her overconfidence, she ran a halfhearted campaign and did not bother to learn from the successes of her predecessors. Two examples stand out:

1. She did not learn from Howard Dean's very successful grass roots fund raising. She did not attempt to raise money through the Internet from millions of willing donors.

2. She did not learn from the GOP outstanding organizers in getting out the vote in 2004.

As such, she blew a huge hole in her claims of having experience, being able to hit the ground running, etc. She showed herself not to be ready for the big time, in spite of her grandiose claims.

Ultimately, she showed herself to be another moderately competent politician trying to cash in on her husband's success.

So the Democrats have to choose between a delusional man who claims to be, in effect the second coming of Christ and a an old woman unready for the responsibilities of the Presidency. Oh yes, we can vote for McCain. Some choices.

It's All About Obama All the Time

We've been waiting for Obama a long time.  Jews have been waiting for the Messiah and Christians have been waiting for the second coming of Christ.

The long wait is over.  Obama has arrived!

When Obama sings and dances, the Republicans and the lobbies will fold their tents.  Hezbollah, al Qaida and all our other enemies will kiss Obama's ring.  If you believe that, I've got a bridge I want to sell you.

Proof that Obama Lies

See Samuelson's column column in the WaPo.

The last paragraph:

The contrast between Obama's broad rhetoric and his narrow agenda is stark, and yet the media have treated his invocation of "change" as a serious idea rather than a shallow campaign slogan. He seems to have hypnotized much of the media and the public with his eloquence and the symbolism of his life story. The result is a mass delusion that Obama is forthrightly engaging the nation's major problems when, so far, he isn't.

Obama Likens Himself to . . . .

Martin Luther King and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. See Zeleny article.

I am old enough to remember MLK and FDR and I can fearlessly say that Obama is not even fit to shine their shoes.

Another Good Column

David Brooks has an excellent column about building up intellectual capital.

Good Column

I don't always agree with Krauthammer, but he really hit the nail on the head this time.

Obama's Delegate Deficit

Latest delegate count (including super-delegates), according to the NYTimes:

Hillary 1096
Obama 815

Needed to win = 2025.

Hillary has 54% of the amount needed.
Obama has 43% of the amount needed.

Considering that Obama's campaign which is based entirely on his charm, misogyny and Black racism is running out of steam (see page 1 in today's NYT), there is no way Obama will overcome his delegate deficit.

Religion in Politics

"Hillary-hating is a religion, and belief in religious truth does not need a logical rationale." Posting on a NYTimes blog.

The exact same thing can be said of support for Obama. It is a personality cult, like worship of Mohammed or of Jesus Christ. Oprah stated her views very well: "I have seen my truth," in speaking of her support for Obama. Another way of putting is: "Don't bother me with the facts. My mind is made up."

To sum up, Obama benefits from three forces: Hillary-hate, religious passion and Black racism.

Those Biased Polls, Again

Predicted that Hillary would lose CA by 1%.  She won by 17%.  In your face, "Kingmaker" Oprah.

Predicted that Hillary would win MA by 7%.  She won by 15%.  In your face, Senators Kennedy and Kerry.

It's About Time!

It's about time that somebody exposed the falseness of Obama's dishonest baloney of ending polarization in government. See Dunn's article in the WaPo.

The most telling paragraph:

When tumult is absent, when everyone in a state is tranquil, Machiavelli wrote, "we can be sure that it is not a republic." Out of unity, Obama believes, change will somehow emerge. But only insignificant or incremental changes can come out of the compromises that are reached through consensus. Transformational change, on the other hand, is the product of conflict and polarization.

Krugman Rips Obama Health Insurance Plan

See today's column .

Closing paragraph:

If Mrs. Clinton gets the Democratic nomination, there is some chance — nobody knows how big — that we’ll get universal health care in the next administration. If Mr. Obama gets the nomination, it just won’t happen.
