Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Obama: GOP going to point out my blackness

Or, more accurately, his half-blackness.  Either way, the “great uniter” sure knows how to draw bitter, clingy white folks over to his side, doesn’t he?  He comes into my backyard and delivers this kind of drivel (from the AP):

Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama said on Friday he expects Republicans to highlight the fact that he is black as part of an effort to make voters afraid of him.

“It is going to be very difficult for Republicans to run on their stewardship of the economy or their outstanding foreign policy,” Obama told a fundraiser in Jacksonville, Florida. …

Yeah, because that leap to $4+ gas and jump in unemployment happened over the last two years under the Dem Congress…but somehow that’s the GOP’s fault. Anywho, continuing:

…”We know what kind of campaign they’re going to run. They’re going to try to make you afraid.

“They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s black?”

“We know the strategy because they’ve already shown their cards. Ultimately I think the American people recognize that old stuff hasn’t moved us forward. That old stuff just divides us,” he said.

If, by “old stuff”, you mean “that stuff that I just said and made up with no basis in fact”, then yeah…”old stuff”!  And I suppose that “you guys are a bunch of racists” is a tactic that doesn’t “divide us”, n’est-ce pas? 

The GOP isn’t going to hit him on his defeatist attitude, his pansy-#ss approach to fighting terrorism, his poor judgment of character (see Rezko, Wright, Ayers, Dohrn, Jim Johnson, et al), his Marxist tendencies, or anything like that?  Nope…they’re going to try to point out something that only the visually impaired don’t already notice: his skin color.  Dumb#ss.

How Obama plans to lure Hillary voters

With a moustrap laced with limburger, that’s how.  From Ed Morrissey:

Some voters may be wondering how the healing is going among Democrats. According to Jake Tapper and Kate Snow at ABC … poorly. After Sheila Jackson Lee suggested that Barack Obama needed to reach out to female voters still on edge after the narrow victory over Hillary Clinton, Obama suggested that he was too busy to do women’s work:

Sources at the meeting said that Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, a Clinton supporter, expressed the desire that Obama and his campaign would reach out the millions of women still aggrieved about what happened in the campaign and still disappointed that Clinton lost.

Obama agreed that a lot of work needs to be done to heal the Democratic Party, and that he hoped the Clinton supporters in the room would help as much as possible.

According to Rep. Yvette Clarke, D-N.Y., Obama then said, “However, I need to make a decision in the next few months as to how I manage that since I’m running against John McCain, which takes a lot of time. If women take a moment to realize that on every issue important to women, John McCain is not in their corner, that would help them get over it.”

Rep. Diane Watson, D-Calif., a longtime Clinton supporter, did not like those last three words — “Get over it.” She found them dismissive, off-putting.

“Don’t use that terminology,” Watson told Obama.

The subtext of this isn’t hard to fathom. Listen, sweetie, I’m busy with man-work. Why don’t the women-folk get together and handle this themselves? I’m sure that’ll convince women he takes them seriously. He all but told Lee and the other women at the meeting that they have nowhere else to go, so he’s not going to waste his time. …

He sure is a smooth talker, isn’t he?
