Update: Even Obama lovers at MSNBC think Obama’s birthday cake is “hideous”.
The pretentious, arrogant, tacky, disordered, mess which is Obama – pictorially represented:
In Washington, Barack Obama and his Dimocrats think the people are revolting. The people are indeed revolting – against Obama. The Barack Obama and the Dimocratic response: “Let Them Eat Cake.”
* * * * *
By “Let Them Eat Cake” Obama and his Dimocrats are not referencing the parties and huge luscious cakes prepared for Obama’s officially declared birthday – a high holy day for the Hopium addled.
The reason for the “racism” race-baiting is the polls which show Americans increasingly disgusted with Obama and beginning to turn against him strongly.
Political talkers who earlier this year stated “the chance of Republicans winning control of either chamber in the 2010 midterm elections is zero. Not “close to zero.” Not “slight” or “small.” Zero.” are now revising their zero talk. Now these same talkers are talking about glimmers of hope, if not downright big victories for Republicans in 2010.
What is driving the “racism!” shouts the most however is the sight of Americans openly revolting against Obama and his Dimocrats at town hall meetings. Even young people, who are supposed to be the bulwark of the Obama/Axelrod/Brazile monstrosity called the Obama Dimocratic Party, might be moving on, away from Obama, in search of new thrills.
It is the town hall uprisings which has Dimocrats sick of Revolting Americans. Like French Aristocrats Obama and his Dimocrats sniff into perfumed, embroidered, handkerchiefs and attack the revolting masses:
Angry protesters shouted down Democrats at public events from Texas to Pennsylvania over the weekend, leaving the party only one real hope for getting its message out over recess: a backlash.
In Austin, Texas, Rep. Lloyd Doggett was drowned out by a group of noisy, sign-waving demonstrators who shouted, “Just say no” as he tried to talk about health care reform.
In an e-mail to POLITICO Monday, Doggett called the group a “mob, sent by the local Republican and Libertarian parties” that “came not just to be heard but to deny others the right to be heard.”
Dimocrats wanted to bamboozle at town halls during August. But The People Are Revolting:
For Democrats, that’s precisely the problem: Their ability to make their case on health care at public events during the August recess is mostly in the hands of the people who turn out for the events. And if those people want to be disruptive — especially en masse — there’s not much the Democrats can do about it.
“Town halls have become town hells,” said Mark McKinnon, a former adviser to President George W. Bush. “Special interests and opponents have figured out how easy it is to disrupt town halls and get their own message out. The days of the truly free-form town halls may be over.”
Mark McKinnon is a Republican but also an Obama lover who openly stated so. The article does not point out that fact. Are Republicans taking advantage of the revolt? You betcha. But that does not mean that the anger is any less genuine or any less real. Obama and his Dimocrats however continue to smear:
“As some members of Speaker Pelosi’s party are already learning, it’s hard to heed her orders to ‘go on offense’ when you’re busy defending such unpopular policies,” said Paul Lindsay, a spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee.
Lindsay said the NRCC would begin circulating a regular e-mail to reporters highlighting the protests at Democrats’ town halls. The title: “Recess Roastings — Washington Democrats Feel the Heat at Home.”
Democrats are trying to push back, casting the town hall disrupters as right-wing extremists affiliated with anti-tax “tea parties.”
“The last place Republicans ought to be moving their party is even more to the fringe of the political spectrum,” said Eric Schultz, a spokesman for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
Added a senior Democratic strategist: “It may be out of necessity, but for Republicans, relying on the fringe elements of the party to be the face of opposition on health care is a dangerous game. The birthers and the tea party folks aren’t controllable, come off as angry and out of control and couldn’t care less about the issue at hand.”
We wrote recently about how Big Media, in collusion with Obama Dimocrats, attack as “fringe” or “crazy” those who disagree with Obama and his Dimocrats. Big Media, in collusion with Obama Dimocrats, also propagandize that Republicans will be hurt by anything Republicans say or do; problems for Obama are immediately, via alchemy, transmogrified into Republican problems.
But communications experts say it would be a mistake to demonize the protesters.
“The more intelligent alternative is to take the extensive network the Obama campaign developed and send all of those people to town halls,” said University of Pennsylvania political scientist Kathleen Hall Jamieson. “If this comes down to vocal individuals, the Obama campaign ought to be able to always outnumber their opponent. And if they’re not, then that’s a problem.”
Kathleen Hall Jamieson is exactly right. Why not have the vaunted Obama “campaign” outnumber the revolting masses? Answer: because there is a problem and the problem is that Obama’s policies are being rejected and his “campaign” organization of young people has moved on to new thrills.
One thing on which everyone agrees: The protests are likely to continue.
Amy Walter of National Journal (a formerly respected voice by Obama Dimocrats) thinks the August “message war” is already over and Obama Dimocrats lost:
Much has been made about August being a “make or break” month for the health care debate. At this point, though, Republicans have already won the messaging war — never mind the fist bumps House Democrats gave each other last week for passing a bill out of the Energy and Commerce Committee. Do Dems really have a chance to rewrite the debate over the dog days of summer?
The GOP didn’t change Americans from health care reform advocates to detractors overnight. By tapping into the “government-run health care” vein, they hit a long-held soft spot for many voters, namely their inherent distrust of Washington-run programs. From 1992 until 2006, CNN/USA Today/Gallup asked the question “How much of the time do you think you can trust the government in Washington to do what is right?” Except in the period immediately following the 9/11 attacks, a majority of voters have said that they trust the government only “some of the time.” That number was as large as 75 percent in 1993.
Americans are correct to question the government. “Don’t tread on me” is a long held belief in America. Obama promised he would bring celestial choirs of unity and in six short months all he has managed to do is unify Independents with Republicans:
As we’ve known for a while now, the battle for health reform isn’t going to be decided by winning over partisans; they’ve already taken sides. In the latest Diageo/Hotline poll, just 30 percent of Republicans said they approved of “Congress and the president enacting a major overhaul of the U.S. health care system.” Almost all Democrats (83 percent) approved. Independents, meanwhile, were almost evenly divided with slightly more approving (49 percent) than disapproving (43 percent).
I got some insight into how those independents may be thinking at a focus group in Towson, Md., hosted by the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania. All 12 participants were self-identified independents, with just over half (seven) having voted for Barack Obama.
Once the conversation turned to health care, the overwhelming message was pretty simple: slow down. One participant worried that Congress couldn’t possibly complete comprehensive health care reform in just six months. Another said it “can’t be done overnight” and that doing something “too fast” could make things worse. For independents, then, the issue seems to be less about specific elements of a health care plan — public option versus a co-op — than a fear that Congress has created an artificial timetable that is causing them to rush through what should be a thought-out, balanced plan. Speed, in Democrats’ case, is not their friend.
Meanwhile, it was also interesting to note the toll that this debate is taking on these voters’ views of the Democratic Party. While almost all of them still felt some personal affinity for Obama — the overwhelming feeling was “hopeful” — they were almost universally disappointed in Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Terms like “pushy,” “outspoken,” and “self-centered” were thrown around the room. As for the Democratic Party generally, they used terms like “divided” and “split.” To be sure, they weren’t in love with Republicans, either; one participant said they have a “long way to go.” Another chided them for “not tackling issues.”
Obama and his Dimocrats will attempt to demonize these rational Independents. These Independents will join Republicans and Hillary supporters as victims of the “racist!” smear. “Fringe”, “crazy” will be deployed as well against those who dare disagree with Obama and his Hopium addled Dimocrats.
With the party’s political hopes in the balance, can “grassroots” groups hoping to persuade wavering members do so over the recess by packing town hall meetings? We’ve already seen some pictures and heard reports of lawmakers being hounded by angry citizens at these public forums. Even so, it’s worth asking whether members of Congress will really use these forums as barometers of their community’s feelings on the issue. [snip]
The personal nature of health care — especially the stories of death and disfigurement at the hands of the health care industry — makes for lots of potentially uncomfortable moments as well. Can you really cut off the woman who’s been talking for 10 minutes about her son’s life-threatening illness?
This is the conundrum for Democrats right now. Ultimately, they have to convince independent voters that they haven’t been hasty in crafting a bill, but they also can’t afford for health care to hang out in no-man’s land much longer.
The biggest problem for Obama Dimocrats is that there is no actual bill that is being discussed. All we have from Obama is a bunch of words which cannot be trusted.
Americans know the “stimulus” scam did not live up to the words Obama uttered in favor of that waste. Americans know “Cash For Clunkers” is when you donate to the Obama Dimocrats.
Americans also know that the cake Obama is offering is not healthy.
Let Obama eat cake.
