There are many reasons why we say:
Obama simply cannot be trusted. Obama cannot be trusted on any issue. Obama cannot be trusted by his friends. Obama cannot be trusted by his enemies. Obama cannot be trusted.
Barack Obama moved what used to be the Democratic National Committee (hereinafter, the Dimocratic National Committee) to the home of corruption, Chicago. Obama shut down any competition to money for his own campaign, including 527s. Obama wanted all the money. Obama made promises to all his “friends” while tossing former “friend” after former “friend” under the proverbial bus.
In exchange, the Dimocrats had to drag Obama across the primary finish line and select Obama at their convention by (1) demanding Hillary Clinton stop campaigning and ignore voters; (2) disenfranchise the voters of Michigan and Florida as well as say that many states were irrelevant to the democratic process; (3) exploit sexism and misogyny either by silence or complicity in order to trash Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton; (4) exploit racism and homophobia.
Now the Dimocrats are getting what they deserve from Barack Obama, the man who cannot be trusted by either friend or foe:
Earlier this month, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made a personal appeal to Barack Obama: Help me grow the Democrats’ Senate majority by sharing some of the $77 million you’ve got in the bank.
Obama’s campaign said no.
Although Democratic insiders say a better deal could still come, the Obama campaign so far has agreed only to let Senate Democrats use Obama’s name — as well as those of his wife and running mate — in mail and online fundraising pitches. The campaign has planned no joint fundraising events with House or Senate Democrats, and insiders say none is likely to be held before Election Day.
Obama says he can’t spare the cash. What happened to the promise of all that cash Reaganesquely “trickling down”?
In rejecting a direct request from his Senate leader, Obama has put a fine point on the financial pressures he’s feeling as the presidential race turns toward the fall.
Obama raised a record-setting $66 million in August, leaving his campaign with about $77 million in cash now. [snip]
Reid and Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Chairman Charles Schumer had hoped at one point to get as much as $10 million from the Obama campaign. With 23 GOP seats up for grabs this year — versus only a dozen Democratic seats — Senate Democrats see a once-in-a-generation opportunity to pad their majority with as many as four to seven new seats.
But to do that, they’ll need money, and lots of it. While the DSCC still has a huge financial advantage over its GOP counterpart, the National Republican Senatorial Committee, the geographic overlap between competitive Senate seats and the tight presidential race means the McCain campaign and the RNC will be dumping tens of millions of dollars into battleground states with competitive Senate races. This will likely help down-ballot GOP candidates and incumbents. [snip]
One Democratic source familiar with the intraparty dispute over money said that fundraising e-mails and direct-mail pitches “are helpful, but we really don’t care about that. We need more help than that.” [snip]
Democrats on Capitol Hill have grumbled for months that it has been hard to orchestrate campaign events and appearances with the Obama campaign. One Democratic strategist said the campaign frequently turns down requests to have Obama appear with a Democratic incumbent or challenger, and that the events that do happen come only after some “very heavy lifting.”
Obama only cares about himself not the Dimocrats he has flim-flammed. Obama will be busy tonight laughing once again at “bitter” and “clingy” small town Americans while raising yet more money.
Meanwhile, blogging Dimocrats, continue to defend the inexperienced, unqualified, and not to be trusted Obama. These Big Blog Dimocrats are busy insulting Sarah Palin and stomping their heels at Hillary supporters who refuse to reward sexism and misogyny.
One Big Blogger in particular, a woman lawyer, is particularly angry. This Big Blog Dimocrat writes:
It’s revenge voting and cutting off your nose to spite your face. When their candidate didn’t win, they put punishing the nominee ahead of the danger posed by their opponents.
I don’t think there are enough of them to make a difference. Most people have more sense.
Of course that Big Blog Dimocrat had earlier written that the selection of Joe Biden as a running mate would be a “deal-breaker“. In other words, if Obama chose Joe Biden to run with, this particular Big Blog Dimocrat would NOT support the ticket. The Big Blog Dimocrat wrote that Joe Biden’s history was simply unacceptable. That was then.
Now the Big Blog Dimocrat has decided to eat her own bitter words, support the Dimocratic ticket, AND insult those who think Obama/Biden is a deal breaker as “revenge voters”. Sad. These Dimocrats can’t be trusted either. Words matter. Saying something is a “deal-breaker” matters. Refusing to understand that Obama is not to be trusted and a total “deal breaker” for Hillary supporters is dim. That is why that Big Blogger is a Dimocrat.
Another Dimocrat spoke yesterday with Joe Biden approving her remarks:
At Democratic vice-presidential nominee Joe Biden’s rally Monday evening in Flat Rock, Michigan, Barbara Theaker, a local supporter, called Biden’s Republican counterpart Sarah Palin “a bucket of fluff“.
“Barack Obama has made an intelligent choice for the vice-presidency,” Theaker said in her introduction of Biden. “So very different this is from that bucket of fluff that the Republican candidate has chosen for the same position.”
When Theaker finished her remarks, Biden told her, “You are good! My Lord!”
This is not the first time a Biden supporter has used the introduction to hit out at Palin.
Last Tuesday in St. Louis, Missouri Rep. Russ Carnahan said of the Alaska governor, “There’s no way you can dress up that record, even with a lot of lipstick.”
There are a lot of Dimocrats who have authored the defeat coming this NOvember.
Hillary Clinton is not a Dimocrat. Hillary Clinton is a Democrat.
Hillary Clinton said in an interview this morning that it was possible to be enthusiastic about Sarah Palin’s historic candidacy without supporting the Republican ticket.
“People are missing the boat here,” Clinton said on ABC’s Good Morning America. “I don’t think that it’s inconsistent for a lot people to say, ‘Well hey, that’s exciting, what an exciting pick,’ and still say, ‘But that’s not the ticket for me and my family.’
She added that voters should not consider the race in terms of who they’re for but rather which candidate is for them.
Hillary Clinton understands that Sarah Palin is an exciting candidate. The Dimocrats and Big Blogs want to destroy another woman running for office with sexist insults but Hillary Clinton remains a class act.
The American people and American voters are learning that Obama is not to be trusted. Increasingly, Americans are moving to John McCain. In spite of McCain’s positions on the issues, because Obama cannot be trusted, and because Obama does not have the necessary experience to be President of the United States, Americans are abandoning Obama and the Dimocrats.
In addition, the insulting Obama attempts to make McCain appear “out of touch” are increasingly viewed as a smear about McCain’s age. At least today, many Americans will find themselves agreeing with John McCain on the economy.
John McCain this morning called for a commission modeled on the government’s in-depth investigation of the 9/11 terrorist attack to probe what prompted the financial crisis now gripping Wall St and sending shockwaves through the market.
Appearing on CBS’s “The Early Show,” McCain faulted the “greed, excess, [and] corruption” of financial executives.
“We need to set up a 9/11 Commission in order to get to the bottom of this and get it fixed and act to clean up this corruption,” he said.
Dimocrats will continue to insult Governor Sarah Palin and Senator John McCain. Dimocrat Big Blogs will continue to insult Hillary supporters who refuse to reward sexism and misogyny.
Dimocrats will continue to say Hillary supporters are bitter and clingy.
Dimocrats will be disappointed in NOvember when they suffer an historic loss.
