Ever wonder who believes in, then actually buys, that penis extension product advertised on TV which must have many customers because the commercial is always on? Ever wonder who believes, then actually responds and sends money, to the emails which typically begin “Dearest” and is from someone allegedly in Africa who just got a windfall of millions of dollars and wants to give it to you if you send money first?
Answer: the Obama target audience.
We’re not specifically referring to those sad boys with their blue blogs, their gamer networks, their oddly named ever-so-hip website hangouts who hang-doggedly feel they could use
a little a lot of help from a little pill and who feel more secure grabbing their crotches and saying “dude” and “rick-rolling” and karate kid quoting and circulating their “clever” captions on pictures as they proudly exhibit their objectified African-American athlete friend who makes them feel so modern and enlightened and high minded.
No, we mean all the gullible, of all ages and gender, who buy super expensive “sports shoes” or team paraphernalia (or the equivalent) – not to display support but because purchasing products makes them feel as if in fact they are the team making millions off of the gullible. Think Obama logo.
Now, think of that target audience and what happens when they pay for their Extenz (or equivalent) and it does not work as they had dreamed, or should we say, hoped. Indeed, it does not work at all. They’ve been had by a pro but they are too embarrassed to have been so fooled and so don’t bother to ask for their money back.
The Extenz boys are not alone in their embarrassment. As we have written repeatedly, after the nomination was gifted to Obama by Dean/Pelosi/Brazile/Kennedy/Kerry, and the big electoral choices for most Americans became Obama and McCain, we wanted the Dimocrats to have uncontrolled power over the national government.
We wanted that because Americans need to see how nakedly corrupt the Obama Dimocratic Party is and how they only care about themselves. We understood that for Americans to see the thorough corruption that the once great Democratic Party has decayed into there could be no excuses – the Dimocrats needed to have undisputed, uncontrolled power. Like those Extenz users, the voters had to experience the ineffective flaccid crew they had just elected.
We published our regrets immediately after the Georgia U.S. Senate election determined that the Dimocrats would not get their 60th Senate Seat.
We rejoiced when defective Arlen Specter felt sufficiently comfortable with the level of corruption in the Obama Dimocrat Party to declare himself no longer a Republican but rather a typical, in it for the personal advancement, Dimocrat. Specter effectively became the 60th seat for the now filibuster-proof Dimocrats in the U.S. Senate.
This past Friday, bad news dump day, the regrets we expressed in The Jar Jar Binks Of American Politics came back to us. We wrote that back when the Republican victory in Georgia had earlier denied the Dimocrats 60 seats in the Senate. Our words came bitterly back to remind us of the gullible target audience which supported Obama. We wrote then:
No, our regret stems largely from our sense that now the cowardly Dimocratic leadership will avail themselves of the very remote possibility of a Republican filibuster in the Senate as an excuse to not do what they promised to do but don’t want to do in the first place.
And of course the national Dimocratics have as their leader the Chicago master of excuses.
Now, the Dimocrats themselves are saying what we predicted they would say. Shocking, no?
Here is the scam of scams complete with confessional quotes:
A series of setbacks in the Senate has Democratic leaders warning their supporters that they won’t be able to accomplish everything they set out to do this year — even if Al Franken joins them as a 60th vote.
The Dimocrats, after decades of saying what they would do if they would control the entire U.S. government – especially if they ever achieved the magical 60 vote filibuster-proof majority in the U.S. Senate – are now saying “WAIT”. Why?
We know that many Dimocratic senators are allowed and sometimes encouraged to vote in a politically advantageous way on votes that are procedural and sometimes even on votes for or against the final bill. This indulgence is allowed because the goal for years was to get full control and a filibuster-proof majority. But the Dimocrats have that super-majority now.
After decades of saying they needed undisputed control of the government before they could do what they promised now they are saying even the super-majority is not enough.
Recall after the 2006 elections when many thought that election meant no funding of the Iraq war? Didn’t happen. The reason given was “not enough votes”. Fair enough, there were not sufficient votes with George W. Bush in the White House. Now the Dimocrats have all the votes they ever wanted and still that is not enough.
“They should not take anything for granted,” said Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), who as majority whip has the job of counting votes. “People keep saying, ‘Wow, if you get Sen. Franken up in Minnesota, everything is going to be fine — you’ll be at 60.’ I’ve never said that, I know, because I face these senators every day, and I know that each of them has their own mind.”
What was the point of working for decades to get a super-majority if not to finally get done what they said they would do when they got the super-majority?
There is an answer and will get to that soon.
All the gloating from the gullible appears to have been premature. The great big shift, the great big realignment, that the gullible have been gloating about seems to be extremely premature if what Chuck Schumer says is true:
Centrist Democrats like Begich and Warner — both freshmen — helped the Democrats get to the cusp of 60, but they’ll also make leaders’ lives more difficult. The Democratic caucus is more ideologically diverse than it has been in the past, thanks in large part to Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), the former head of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee who over the past two election cycles recruited centrist and conservative candidates to compete — and eventually win — in red states.
Schumer said recently that divisions within the caucus are a natural outgrowth of its diversity.
“The idea that now with 60 we can pass everything quickly and easily — no,” Schumer said. “And the beauty of our caucus is, first, it’s diverse.”
Where is the big realignment? Where is all that “change”? Is the only big change over at Disney? Remember when Hillary Clinton said she would fight for “core Democratic values“? This Obama Dimocratic Party appears only willing to fight for themselves and the big offices and spoils which go to the majority.
Republican turncoat Senator Susan Collins said “I don’t see the Democrats as having reached 60 in reality.” What she means is that a lot of the “Democrats” are not willing to fight for “core Democratic values”. These DINOs, like Specter, are in it only for themselves – and it is they who are in the super-majority. Real Democrats, like us, are left out of the Congress and White House controlling Dimocratic Party.
On May Day we were too full of love and joy to elaborate on this aspect of the Third Bush Term. We wrote:
Why don’t the Dimocrats pass now what they have been promising for years? [snip]
We’ll ponder all the promises Democrats have made over the years – and how the Dimocrats in the White House and in Congress can, but won’t [hint: they rather have the issues still alive so they can continue to fundraise off controversy] fulfill all those long promised promises – on another day.
Remember how during the general election, the Obama Dimocrats finally began to address women’s issues after having ignored women and scourged Hillary during the primaries?
Recall how there was not a single debate or forum to discuss women’s issues. But come general election time the red flag of abortion was waved frantically to get women to forget about the sexism and misogyny. Even Dimocrat Chairman Dean discovered women and sexism, but only after Hillary Clinton had been smeared and mugged in order to gift the nomination to the Chicago master of excuses lacking core Democratic values.
Why won’t the Dimocrats do what they have been saying they would do for decades? Because the fundraising must go on. The money must flow. The promises must be broken.
Dimocrats also understand that accomplishments must meet expectations and that trying sometimes means failure – which could cost them at the ballot box.
Dimocrats also understand that fulfilling a promise to a constituency means that constituency might become satisfied and walk away to other pursuits and other fundraisers.
Dimocrats also understand that fulfilling a promise to one constituency often means angering another constituency. Money might then flow to opponents.
Dimocrats also understand that they didn’t really mean all that stuff they said – that was only meant for the gullible.
Albert Einstein searched for a unified field theory to describe the fundamental forces of physics.
To describe the current political situation in a way that explains the fundamental forces of politics in America today all you need to do is add “Dimocrats” to this basic formulation:
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.
