OBAMA DING DONG

By ATWadmin On July 25th, 2007

obama.jpgHey, isn’t Democrat Presidential Barack Obama quite the guy! I see that he has offered to meet without precondition with leaders of renegade nations such as Cuba, North Orea and Iran so touching off a war of words, with rival Hillary Clinton who has called  him naive and Obama linking her to President Bush’s diplomacy. Older politicians in both parties questioned the wisdom of such a course, while Obama’s supporters characterized it as a repudiation of Bush policies of refusing to engage with certain adversaries.

So Obama just wants to meet and talk to every tyrant on the planet this week. Last week he wanted to provide "appropriate" sex education to those in the kindergarten. Lord knows what he’ll suggest next week, but here’s my best three guesses.

1. Abolish all border controls – you gotta love your neighbour and let them move into your house if they want.

2. Embrace global warming alarmism by crucifying the US economy.  You gotta be a good green citizen.

3. Invite Al Queda to the White House. Remember, a stranger is just a friend you haven’t yet met.

  1. His real name isn’t Barack Obama, its Barack Hussein Obama.

  2. Obama will be the new Jimmy Carter if he is elected. From what I’ve read a lot of people vehemently opposed to Hillary Clinton are saying how impressed they were with her performance, see NRO’s Corner for example.

  3. He’ll never get elected. He’ll not even win the primary. The USA is a nation consisting of a little place called The South, and black men born to Muslim parents (or parent) and named things like Barrack Hussein Obama do not get voted for in The South. Especially when this particular Barrack Hussein Obama is a gun-grabbing leftie.

    He gets media (and thus, blog) attention because he is black, nothing more. ‘Tis best he is left alone and given as little attention as possible – especially critical attention. We can only hope that he DOES win the primary and those hands ’08 to the Republicans, giving them a chance to put right what push smashed to pieces and set on fire.

  4. CynLib, I think you’re underestimating Obama’s chances in the primaries. Black voters make up a very large part of the democrat primary voters in the South. The race thing would benefit him in the Southern primaries..

  5. Obama may not get the ‘black vote’ because he isn’t black enough. Obama is not descended from any slaves and he makes no attempt (rightly) to court those who were. But he won’t progress because he makes Hillary look polished anmd moderate: maybe that’s the deal!!

  6. Ross is right. Jesse Jackson had great success in the Southern Democratic primaries in 1984 (Virginia, South Carolina & Louisiana) and 1988 (Georgia). And he had far more political baggage than Obama.

    I think the recent comments mentioned in David’s post show that Obama will have some mistakes common to any campaign, especially of this length. Clinton has demonstrated a very good killer instinct in hitting him early for these statements.

    He’ll be in this to the end (look at the money he has raised).

    Does this mean that blacks vote on the basis of race? Is that not ‘racist’ or is it OK cos they’s black?

  8. Many blacks do vote based on race. Sometimes it might be pure racism (voting against any white candidate), sometimes out of pride (Jackson was breaking new ground), and sometimes a mixture of things. There are many whites who would never vote for a black person. Ethnic political appeals are hardly uncommon in this country.

    When JFK ran in 1960 he stated that he hoped people wouldn’t vote against him simply because he was a Catholic and hoped that they wouldn’t support him simply because he was a Catholic. Probably a good standard to go by.

  9. Obama’s religion is an issue he tries to keep out of the limelight. His Church’s ‘mission statement’ (pass the sickbag) would read like a Klan press release if you took out the word ‘black’ and inserted the word ‘white’ instead.

    I think in the absence of Ron Paul switching sides completely the Far Left would unite behind him in the absence of another candidate to challenge Billary which would at least make the race interesting (I think Edwards is a busted flush now). But Gore will almost certainly announce in the next 2-3 months and that’s when Obama fades away and it becomes a two-horse (and ne’er a truer phrase was spoken – *shudder*) race.

  10. DSD -Ron Paul has as much chance as RuPaul (I stole that from somewhere).

  11. Ron Paul also has no chance of winning the election. I think he actually has a level of support that would suprise most, but not enough to win. However, why the left would vote for him I have no idea. Ron Paul is a constitutionist – he believes in smaller government, lower taxes, less government intervention. He would abolish the welfare state, you can forget about nationalised healthcare or compulsory insurance under him. He vehemently defends the second amendment and he’s anti-abortion. The only thing the left might find interesting is his stance on drugs (legalize them at the federal level) and the war in Iraq (bring ’em home), but there are plenty of democrats who have similar opinions on those. Ron Paul is just about the left’s worst enemy – here you have a presidential candidate who, when asked "would you do x" said "hell no, the constitution dosn’t say I can do anything like that". Can you imagine Hillary saying "well gee I’d love to give everyone healthcare but the constitution doen’t say I can do that"?

  12. Ron Paul is not a factor because he can’t get elected on a national level. In fact, he can’t get win a primary in his own party (including his home state). He is running a vanity campaign, same as Dennis Kuncinich on the far left.

  13. I wouldn’t call it a vanity campaign, more of an awareness raising campaign. He wants people to hear about his beliefs and spread them. When you think about it that’s probably a lot less vain than campaigning and expecting to actually get into a position of power.
