Defeat Every Democrat – Leave None Alive: The Alliance Of Rush Limbaugh And Hillary Clinton Supporters

Today, at the succinct and smart conservative/libertarian Legal Insurrection website, we are the “Blog Of The Day”. Today at the New York Times a not smart Bill Clinton article, of the type we have repeatedly “refudiated”, has a smart remark from a Republican explaining why the Republican party “mounted no counterattack” as Bill Clinton campaigns this year – “People have respect for him.” Last week Rush Limbaugh joined the NObama Coalition of Hillary Supporters, Tea Party members, Republicans and Independents.

Although we began to call for a NObama Coalition back in late 2008 it was on May 7, 2009 that we provided smart advice for Republicans in “The Republican Secret Weapon – Hillary Clinton”:

“Republicans and conservatives who want to defeat Obama need allies and evidence to make their case against Obama. They have a powerful weapon. She’s called Hillary Clinton.”

In that article we advised that every time the “racist” card was played the response should be “you called Hillary Clinton a racist too and nobody believes you. Every attack from Obama thugs should be parried with “you said/did that against Hillary too and we you were wrong then and you are wrong now”. We cited conservative Andrea Tantaros who smartly responded to attacks by Obama thugs by playing the Hillary Clinton card. Our advice was simple and deadly:

“Republicans and Conservatives should take a clue from Ms Tantaros – utilize the history of the 2008 primaries and what was done to Hillary Clinton to expose the intolerant bullies who pose as progressives.”

In 2008 we warned Republicans and conservatives who chortled gleefully as Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton were “racists” that the same tactics deployed against Hillary and her 18 million voters would be deployed against them too. That warning was not heeded and the laughter continued.

In 2008 we warned Republicans and conservatives who chortled gleefully and repeated the vile sexist and misogynistic attacks against Hillary Clinton that those chickens would come home to roost – against Sarah Palin. That warning was not heeded and the laughter continued.

This past July we explained why these stupidities continued – it was “E” over “I” instead of the necessary “I” over “E”:

In our two immediately previous articles we discussed “hustler’ Obama and how it all began with attacks on Hillary Clinton (“Hey Republicans, it all happened during the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2008. Don’t you get it yet?“); and we discussed the “I over E” political strategy that we Democrats, who want the Democratic Party back and reject the Obama Dimocratic Party, and Republicans/conservatives must adopt if we are to successfully rid ourselves of Barack Obama ( I before E (one of our favorites, which means “Intelligence Over Emotion” in political strategy).

As we noted in that article some Republicans/conservatives will not be disuaded from “E”. We also noted that even at Free Republic some Republicans/conservatives understand the need for “I”.

Now some major Republican/conservative voices have weighed in on the side of “I”. Michelle Malkin understands the connections we see regarding the Black Panther Party, ACORN and what happened in 2008:

Just today examples abound about potential tricks and frauds in the service of electing Obama Dimocrats. Those damn electronic voting machines are cited as an example of something that is very wrong. But this is all too late. We Hillary Supporters saw this all before but few listened (Fox & Friends this past summer aired excerpts of “We Will Not Be Silenced” which can be viewed HERE) to our warnings.

On July 27, 2009 Michelle Malkin published “Culture of Corruption”. On July 23, 2008 – we published our article – “Democratic Culture of Corruption”. We wrote:

But the greatest corruption Americans are witnessing today is the corruption of the political process by Obama/Dean/Brazile/Pelosi aiding and abetting a Big Media intent on force-feeding an unqualified Barack Obama on the electorate.

We employed the term “Culture of Corruption” during the Democratic primaries of 2008 as the vote pilfering continued. We warned as loudly as we could about “Barack Obama’s Chicago Culture Of Corruption“. Indeed we began to wrote about Obama corruption in the first month of this website in April 2007 as we explored Chicago crook and Obama friends Antoin “Tony” Rezko.

Now seven days to election day 2010 we see “I” beating “E” in the Republican/conservative ranks.



Rush Limbaugh:

“RUSH: Now, ladies and gentlemen, seriously, it is time for election strategy. Everybody sits around and waits for the predictable October Surprise. What will it be? Who will launch it, who will be the target, what will be the objective of the October Surprise? I would like to be the October Surprise. I would like to announce the October Surprise today: Reverse Operation Chaos. You remember the original Operation Chaos was at the end of the Democrat primaries, we’d already had our nominee, McCain was already chosen. Our defeat was sealed. So we wanted the Democrat primary to extend, to go on and on and on, A, so we would have some fun, B, to keep my audience engaged, getting them involved in it, and, C, to try to expose Obama to as many people as possible to counter the notion he was the messiah. So Operation Chaos suggested in remaining primary states that Republicans register in those states, since our primary was done, Republicans re-register as Democrats and vote for Mrs. Clinton to extend the Democrat primary. So we were given credit. Operation Chaos was given credit for Hillary’s narrow squeak of a win in Indiana and for her keeping it close in Texas and for making Pennsylvania relevant. So it’s time today, ladies and gentlemen, for I, me, El Rushbo, to announce Reverse Operation Chaos.”

We do not believe “Operation Chaos” had an impact in any way on the 2008 Democratic primaries. It was not Rush Limbaugh that provided victory or votes to Hillary Clinton. It was Hillary Clinton who fought with courage such that even Pat Buchanan and Bay Buchanan felt anger at the sexism and misogyny displayed so vividly during the New Hampshire primary. It was not Rush Limbaugh. It was Jeremiah Wright. It was “bitter” and “clinging”. It was the scorned by Barack Obama white working class throughout Appalachia. It was the people of West Virginia. It was the people of Kentucky. It was the people of Texas. It was the people of Ohio. It was the people of Pennsylvania. It was Hillary Clinton fighting against inexperienced and unqualified Barack Obama and his Big Media masters.



It was Hillary Clinton making the case against Barack Obama in a way that resonates unto today.

Rush Limbaugh joined the NObama Coalition as he continued his remarks:

“Here it is. Any Democrat — and there are probably a lot of you, and you know who you are, and I know and you know that you are listening — any Democrat who believes that Hillary Clinton would make a far better president than Barack Obama will, anybody who believes that Hillary Clinton would stand a much better chance of beating the Republicans in a race for the White House in 2012, if any of you Democrats believe that Hillary Clinton got cheated in the 2008 primaries, you boys and girls at HillBuzz, I’m thinking of you people. I mean you were the first to realize the fraud that Obama was. Hillary was your gal. Is she still? There’s still that website, HillBuzz, still out there. These guys are in Chicago. So if you think Hillary would have a better time beating the Republican nominee, whoever it is in 2012; if you believe that Hillary would make a better president than Barack Obama or anybody that the Republicans nominate, if you believe, as a Democrat, that Hillary Clinton got screwed, got shafted during the 2008 primaries; if you believe that Barack Obama will be responsible for an historic and humiliating loss of congressional and Senate seats and thus power in November; if Barack Obama is sufficiently embarrassed, Hillary Clinton will be seen as the Democrats’ best hope of holding onto the White House in 2012 and 2016, therefore, if you believe, as Democrats, that the only way out of this mess… here, look at what you got! You’re about to lose it. You had 60 seats in the Senate; you had a supermajority in the House; you had the White House; you had a messiah. And look what’s happened. Your party is singularly being destroyed, and the Republicans don’t even have a nominee. Your party is being destroyed, and the Republicans are still talking about wanting to work with Obama.

Darrell Issa is out there saying so today, and Mitch McConnell is out there saying so today. They want to work with the president. You have a golden opportunity to stop, to stave off what could be and what all the pollster experts are predicting to be a Democrat wipeout. But you have to be forward thinking. There’s nothing you can do about what’s going to happen in ten days, 11 days. But depending on what you do in ten or 11 days, you could be a major factor in your party’s rebound. Do you realize how incredible this is to have to talk now about the Democrat Party needing to rebound, after just 20 months, in total almost totalitarian power? How do you bring this about? Well, it’s Reverse Operation Chaos. Hillary Clinton Democrats, stay home next Tuesday. Hillary Democrats do not go to the polls, they do not vote, they do not vote fraud, they do not cheat, they do not interrupt the election at all. They do not accept free rides to the polling places by union thugs. Speak truth to power with your silence and your sedentary nature on Tuesday. Stay home. Do not vote. Leave Obama on an island all by himself, the island of Democrat dissolution. After all, he has brought it about single-handedly.”

Rush Limbaugh is wrong and we reject his call for anyone to stay home and not vote. We say vote. Vote to Defeat Every Democrat – Leave None Alive.

Rush Limbaugh is also wrong in what motivates us to say “Vote To Defeat Every Democrat”. We yet again laid out our case for political death, doom and destruction yesterday so we will not repeat our reasons and thinking on this point. Suffice to say that it is not about birthday girl Hillary Clinton. It is about honesty and decency and the need to resurrect the Democratic Party and return to the winning FDR/Hillary Clinton coalition. It is about what is best for the country.

Rush Limbaugh, just like the Obama Hopium Guzzlers, really does not understand in any way what it is that motivates us or other Hillary Supporters. We are not a cult of personality that worship at the church of Hillary. As we have again repeatedly stated, we respect and admire and think she is the best but Hillary is human and we don’t have to agree with her on everything. We admire her toughness. We enjoy her fighting spirit. We respect her years of experience. We know she is a smart woman who knows when to seek common ground and when to stand her ground.

It is comic to hear Rush Limbaugh as he makes his appeal to “stay home”. We are not staying home. We understand the self-interest and the aim of Rush Limbaugh. He does not have to speak to Hillary Supporters as if we are children unable to see the alliance for what it is. The alliance, in the words of Legal Insurrection’s “Blog of the Day” mention is – “the enemy of my enemy is my friend“.

Hillary Supporters have an interest is getting rid of Barack Obama. Rush Limbaugh, Republicans, conservatives have an interest in getting rid of Barack Obama. Let’s not kid ourselves. We have interests that converge. That is the cold logic basis of an alliance. So stop pretending that this is some sort of Hillary love Rush – it’s embarrassing to you.

In the world of celestial choirs, Hillary Supporters and Republicans and Tea Party activists, and patriots of all stripes and colors, have an interest in saving the country from the disaster of the Obama corruptions and boobery. But Rush, don’t treat us as if we are stupid.

More Rush with a bit more sense but larded with condescension and speaking to the NObama Coalition as if we are dopes:

Strong turn-out for Democrats on Tuesday will solidify Obama’s place in the party going forward, and all this talk about Hillary in 2012 is gonna go by the wayside if there’s a huge Democrat turn-out, if there’s anything like an upset within the realm of current expectations. A strong turnout for Democrats would solidify Obama’s place in the party going forward, and Hillary Clinton will be officially put out to pasture. It’s up to you. As of today, Hillary Clinton appears to be a far stronger candidate for president in 2012 than Barack Obama does. Now, things could change, but that’s what it looks like right now, and it’s only 11 days away. Do you have the time to roll the dice and think Obama could put this back together? Do you even want him to? I am speaking with great compassion and concern for those of you in the Democrat Party. Hillary Clinton’s future, Bill Clinton’s future, and of course therefore the future of Ron Burkle and Harvey Weinstein and all the other Clintonites who have been frozen out of power, they all want back in. Hillary’s future, Bill Clinton’s future, as much as Obama’s, will in all likelihood be determined on November 2nd of this year.

On November 2nd of this year, Democrats will choose which horse they want to ride in 2012. We’ll find out on Tuesday which horse the Democrats want to ride: Obama or Hillary Clinton. It’s that simple. If you believe Hillary got shafted, if you believe Hillary got screwed — politically of course I’m referring here — if you believe Hillary got cheated; if you believe Obama is single-handedly destroying one of the greatest moments in Democrat Party history, single-handedly, you have a duty to stay home and let this referendum on Obama happen as the experts think it will. If Hillary Clinton were president now, would we be in this mess? You know it and I know it. She would be better able to handle that three a.m. phone call. She herself said it in the campaign, that he’s not capable of it, mostly because he’s not there, and even when he is there, he’s not ready for it. To paraphrase Harry Truman: Give them Hillary. If not now, when? If not who, you. It’s very simple. The future of the Democrat Party is on the ballot as much as the Republicans and their future is in 2012. Figure out which horse you want to be on, figure out which horse you want to ride. Would this country be in the dire straits, would the Democrat Party be in the dire straits it’s in if Hillary Clinton were president right now? Think about it. Reverse Operation Chaos November 2nd in the year 2010.”

Rush is right that these elections are crucial to the Obama Dimocratic Party. If, as expected, the losses are of the type we called for in early 2009 – then large parts and most of the elected officials up for reelection in 2012 will join the DETOX Party. Rush is wrong when he asks we silence ourselves at the ballot box by not voting. Vote – but not for any Democrat unless that vote is within the parameters we outlined yesterday.

Strong Hillary supporter during the primaries Ricki Lieberman, vial her email updates, is making another argument. Ricki writes:

“Some of you wrote to say that they could not forgive the many progressive voters and liberal media that behaved so shamelessly toward Hillary Clinton and that therefore the country got what it deserves in an inexperienced Obama who has failed us in so many ways.

I do not totally disagree, but my point is that as distasteful as it is, Hillary’s values and approach are in no way served by having the same people who caused the problems – frittered away the Clinton surplus, enriched the wealthy, allowed infrastructure to deteriorate, etc – be brought back to power to do more damage and favor the tiny number of multi-rich at the expense of the rest of us.

The ‘pledge’ of reduced government and taxes is a vast fraud and it frightens me that so many seem to be willing to jump on that bandwagon yet again. If anyone wants to know the results of such a disastrous approach, look at Republican Governor of NJ, Christie, who has the vision of a flea and is shutting down an urgently needed new tunnel from NJ to NY which would reinvigorate public transportation and the economy
of the region (#7 below).

Yes, in my opinion, it is unforgivable that party ‘leaders’ gave the election to Obama, but in the current climate, voting Republican/tea party is absolutely the wrong way to send a message to those ‘leaders’. The real losers of that strategy are the American people. Clearly many people, especially women, left the Democratic Party from disgust with the way the Clintons were treated and the ease with which the nomination was deflected to an already losing Obama, but for what? Sarah Palin? Glenn Beck? John McCain? Rush Limbaugh?

To folks who have gone over to the “other side” because of their disgust, it just gets us into a further
downward spiral and ensures that the values embodied by the Clintons are further from reach than ever.

*Enthusiasm gap? Yup. But we are the ones who suffer if the Republican/tea party goons and thugs prevail or even spook the system.***

You may have to hold your nose, but please vote Democratic as clearly the lesser of two evils. In some places, like NY where we have Kirsten Gillibrand and Eric Schneiderman, we can even go to the polls and vote
affirmatively.

Best,

Ricki”

Ricki is wrong. Absolutely wrong. We like Ricki and respect her but she is wrong. She is right that when the Democratic Party “leadership” disenfranchised voters and ignored the rank and file what they did was “unforgivable”. So we do not forgive.

Ricki says that voting for anyone but Democrats is “absolutely the wrong way to send a message to those ‘leaders’. But then what is the right way? Keep voting for them? Keep empowering them? Keep the horror of the Obama coalition dominant? Keep the corruption flowing? Keep Obama and his thugs in charge?

Sorry Ricki, you are wrong on this. The “issues” don’t matter to Obama Dimocrats. To them the “issues” are red flags to bamboozle votes from the gullible.The supermajority sold “us” all out. The idiots who believed Barack Obama continued to support him even as he signaled his betrayal on FISA well before the Democratic convention in 2008. The Hopium Guzzlers continued to sing Obama praises during the bailouts, the deals with Big PhaRma, the scam which is health care, the betrayals of women, gays, every core Democratic value – not to mention Israel and the ceaseless apology bowing tours – in between Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette festivities and golfing.

Ricki is also wrong when she discusses the best way to get to the values we respect. A vote for Democrats and Obama Dimocrats will put us “further from reach than ever” to all that is decent and good and effective and proper. Obama must go Ricki and the way to get rid of him is to knock the pedestal of corruption which holds him up and that is the Obama Dimocratic Party and everyone who runs for election under that party banner.

Rick is wrong when she writes: “You may have to hold your nose, but please vote Democratic as clearly the lesser of two evils.” We won’t hold our nose, we will thumb our noses in defiance and decency.

Ricki is wrong. We are right. In a Nobama Coalition article from January of this year we wrote:

“This country cannot afford another 3 years of boobery and corruption. Barack Obama must go.

Barack Obama must be pushed out. Failing that Barack Obama must have his hands politically cut off, just like a Muslim pickpocket subject to Sharia law.”

Now is the moment for the NObama Coalition. Defeat every Obama Dimocrat. Leave None Alive.

  1. Nailed it!

    Today there was a poll out that white middle working class voters are breaking heavily towards the GOP. Must be all those bitter clinging Americans.

  2. Oh, admin, you shouldn’t have! 😉

    Thanks, democrat1. Did one of you talk to my husband? He sent me flowers and a balloon and he has never done that in all of 24 years. But he would not let me eat a cupcake, you know that lip smacking, finger licking Georgetown Cupcake. ‘We’ are on diet.

  3. legal insurrection is an interesting site…

    admin, have you seen this article?

    http://legalinsurrection.blogspot.com/2010/10/rhode-island-dems-left-with-empty-seat.html

    the man is such a moron… all these people spent all this time and effot for this jacka$$ and he leaves 20 minutes after arriving there, and why?

    “Mr. Obama concluded his remarks at about 7:30, saying he couldn’t stay for dinner.

    “I’ve got to go home to tuck in the girls and walk the dog and scoop the poop,” he said.

    so poop is more important than donors to this fool, at least its all out in the open now.

  4. And happy, happy birthday to you, pm317. I’m sure you are fabulous, too. It’s never too late to start getting flowers, is it!

  5. Tim we saw that article. It is such an appetizer in Obama world to have someone discuss dog feces before dining. What Obama did was take the money, poop, leave.

  6. Scorched earth. Sorry Gene Taylor. Thought you’ve done a reasonable job for a politician, but the D party must be burned.

  7. Can I at least get a condemnation for this one from the United Nations or will they do a pass on this one as well?

    Report: Hezbollah Amasses 40,000 Missiles, 10,000 Men With Help of Syria and Lebanon

    October 26, 2010

    On the same day that Iran began loading fuel into its first nuclear reactor and Syria said the United States “sows chaos” abroad, the French daily Le Figaro reports that the terrorist group Hezbollah has amassed 40,000 missiles and 10,000 men with the help of Syria and Lebanon.

    According to Ynet, quoting Le Figaro:

    Le Figaro maintains that “Unit 108” heads weapon shipments form warehouses on the Syria-Lebanon border to Hezbollah bases. The unit, whose headquarters are located just outside Damascus, has both regular servicemen as well as a reserve forces.

    Another distribution unit is “Unit 112,’ whose men handle the actual delivery of weapons to various Hezbollah strongholds. Deliveries are restricted to night time.

    The third link in the supply chain in “Unit 100”: The unit comprises of Hezbollah weapons specialists and their Iranian counterparts, who travel between the militia’s various bases in Lebanon and Iran.

    The paper said that both sides consider Hezbollah training in Iran as crucial, since the topography of south Lebanon prevents the true training needed for missile launching systems.

  8. China looms large over Clinton’s Asia-Pacific tour

    By Arshad Mohammed

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton added a brief stop in China to her Asia-Pacific tour that begins on Wednesday, a 13-day trip that aims to bolster ties to a region increasingly under China’s shadow.

    The State Department described her detour to Hainan Island on Saturday as a simple courtesy to Chinese State Councilor Dai Bingguo, a key figure in managing the strained U.S.-China relationship.

    Clinton’s trip begins on Wednesday with a stop in Hawaii to meet Japanese Foreign Minister Seiji Maehara, followed by visits to Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand and Australia.

    Built around this week’s East Asia Summit in Hanoi, the tour is designed to demonstrate the U.S. commitment to the region in a climate of China’s at times tense relations with the United States and some of its own neighbors.

    Washington and Beijing have clashed this year over the value of China’s currency, U.S. arms sales to Taiwan and U.S. President Barack Obama’s February meeting with the Dalai Lama, the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader.

    The two countries have also been at loggerheads over the South China Sea, where China, Taiwan and several Southeast Asian countries have conflicting territorial claims.

    Relations between China and Japan, Asia’s two largest economies, became fraught this year over Japan’s 17-day detention of the captain of a Chinese fishing boat that collided with Japanese coast guard ships.

    Washington and Beijing are looking for ways to calm tensions ahead of Chinese President Hu Jintao’s visit to the White House in January, a date that gives both sides an interest in resolving problems.

    “My sense is that once the Chinese seriously began to focus on the January Hu Jintao visit, everybody decided that you have to have a successful summit and you can’t do that with the edges of your relationship as frayed as they are,” said Jack Pritchard, president of the Korea Economic Institute in Washington.

    Pritchard said both sides wanted to steady the relationship and the Chinese “probably are not looking at it (Clinton’s trip) as touching base with all the nations that encircle China.”

    In addition to Clinton’s Asia-Pacific swing, Obama will travel next month to India, Indonesia, South Korea and Japan.

    “BRASH, BULLYING, SELFISH”

    “Chinese diplomacy has been really ham-fisted this year. They have come across as brash, bullying, selfish,” said a U.S. congressional aide who spoke on condition of anonymity.

    “It’s been a tough year for them diplomatically and I am told that they have made a decision … that we need to get back on the bicycle and start pedaling again and the way to do that is to have a successful meeting with Obama.”

    Michael Fullilove, an analyst at the Lowy Institute for International Policy in Sydney and a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution thinktank in Washington, said Obama had begun to adopt a somewhat more muscular stance toward China.

    “To some extent after the Dalai Lama and Taiwan (issues), you saw Obama push back a bit,” Fullilove said. “On the Chinese side, I think they are getting the sense that there is some steel there.”

    U.S. officials suggested they were not looking to make waves with China on Clinton’s trip, hoping to use the leverage from Beijing’s desire for a smooth Hu visit to extract some movement from the Chinese without any public spats.

    “I think we all understand the stakes involved and the importance for a positive, constructive and, frankly, a relationship with a degree of confidence between the United States and China going forward,” Assistant Secretary of State Kurt Campbell told reporters on Tuesday.

    “Most everyone in Asia appreciates the need for a cool-headed, constructive diplomacy between the United States and China in the current environment.”

    In Hanoi in July, Clinton signaled new U.S. engagement in the South China Sea issue, emphasizing that Washington believed territorial disputes in the region had global implications because of its key role as a trade and shipping crossroads and potentially rich source of natural resources.

    U.S. officials said Clinton expressly set out to challenge China’s position that the South China Sea disputes should be only handled bilaterally and lend U.S. support to Southeast Asian nations wary of one-on-one confrontations with Beijing.

    Asked if Clinton was likely to raise the issue on her trip, a senior State Department official replied: “I think we have made the point.”

  9. Thanks, admin! Nice.. (and you too, Southern Born)

    OK, now back to regular programming before people start throwing tomatoes at me. 😉

  10. So Obama has modified his car metaphor. They think they are too smart. But the new twist in the metaphor reads differently to me. The car in the ditch with Obama bumper sticker — that is where you end up if you’re an Obamabot or if you vote for him.

    http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2010/10/26/obama-wont-ditch-car-metaphor/

    We don’t know the make or model of the car President Obama and Democrats say they’ve been trying to push out of the ditch, but at least we know what’s on the bumper. “Look, there’s, there’s an Obama bumper sticker on the car. We get that,” said White House spokesman Robert Gibbs in response to a question from CNN.

    Gibbs was attempting to illustrate that President Obama is taking responsibility for fixing the economy.

  11. I’ve said that about the racist accusation — although I included both her and her husband. They called Bill Clinton a racist too, and his pasty white Bubba ass has done more than anyone else alive to end the scourge of AIDS in Africa and help Haitian earthquake victims. If that’s a racist, I can wear the badge proudly.

    Regards staying home, no way. I’m voting straight female ticket, and in the one race that has two women, I’m voting Republican. As long as a woman gets in though, I’m happy. Rush is, was, and always will be a useless asshole. I don’t give a damn what he says; I’ve never listened to him and I’m not going to start. I’ve arrived at this conclusion all by my little lonesome. I want the shores to run with the flop-sweat of Obama-worshipping Democrats.

  12. From the links above, click on video (it is now going photos).

    http://hillary.foreignpolicy.com/posts/2010/10/25/clinton_to_appear_in_national_geographic_special_on_nov_8

    Steve Hoggard, who filmed Clinton during her travels overseas, states in the news release, “It is astounding to witness the brutal 16- to 20-hour days worked by Secretary Clinton and her team.… They only get a few hours of sleep and are constantly working at a rapid pace traveling from one destination to the next. I have truly been in awe of what they do to represent our county across the globe.”

  13. When I logged on after work, I thought I was on the wrong thread. I recognized the Rushbo video posted and thought, WTH, it’s Hillary’s Birthday and we are talkin’ about RushTheDumbCluck and his telling Hillary supporters to stay home on Nov 2nd.

    Thank God, Admin…you socked it to the RushWatermellonHead and told him to take his advice and shove it.

    One more time, just in case Hillary is surfin’ while she eats birthday cake…

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY HILLARY!!!!

    We want you to run for President again, this time we are more prepared for the O’DNC’s dirty tricks.

    Back to the thread, you are right about burning down the voting booth. I wrote something similar to Riki in an email and she was not a happy camper to her reply to me.

  14. Where’s henry?

    We need to post that Hillary song for the birthday girl. I can’t remember where it’s posted on youtube. Anyone remember the female singer?? She’s singing outside, cold area of the US, has a boombox with her.

    Shadow fax,

    Happy Birthday Madam Secretary and many returns of the day.

    Bless you henry!!!!

    Hillary, this song is for your Birthday. We still need you!!!!

  16. So I’m wondering when National Geographic will do an expose on obama. Maybe we can compare his and meme’s work ethics, i.e. golfing and trips to Spain and India, to Hillary’s work ethics.

  17. “It is astounding to witness the brutal 16- to 20-hour days worked by Secretary Clinton and her team.… They only get a few hours of sleep and are constantly working at a rapid pace traveling from one destination to the next.”

    —————-

    It’s no wonder that Hillary doesn’t want to stay beyond the first term.

  18. Freak deaky landslide?

    http://hotair.com/archives/2010/10/26/charlie-cook-upgrades-midterm-projection-from-landslide-to-freaky-deaky-landslide/

    Not only are we now in 1994 territory, we’re actually a bit beyond it: The new number predicts net gains in the range of 48 to 60 seats. Not good enough? Well, Hotline’s studying the polls too, and while they don’t offer any predictions, the tone of this post makes it sound like they’re envisioning a landslide more of the “freaky double deaky” variety. Actual quote: “Some of the polls are so striking that next Wednesday, the day after the midterm election, observers may turn to these surveys as a symbol of when the bottom fell out for Democrats.”

    Eeyoreblogger pessimism status check: Uncomfortable.

    The Cook Political Report’s pre-election House outlook is a Democratic net loss of 48 to 60 seats, with higher losses possible. A turnover of just 39 seats would tip majority status into Republican hands. The midterm maelstrom pulling House Democrats under shows no signs of abating, if anything it has intensified.

    Whereas fewer than a third of Democratic Senate seats are up for election, House Democrats are suffering the full violence of this national undertow. Over a quarter of the entire 255-member House Democratic caucus have trailed GOP opponents in at least one public or private survey, and nearly half have tested under 50 percent of the vote in at least one poll.

    Ace has been bumming me out lately by moping that the GOP might “only” pick up 44 seats or so — which, in fairness, would mean that they did in fact underperform according to these new Cook numbers. But forget Cook. In all seriousness, what sort of number are we shooting for here in order to send a message to Obama that simply can’t be spun away? My rule of thumb a month or two ago was that mid-40s is good, low 50s (which would match 1994) is superb, and 60 or more is Refudiation nirvana. Does that still hold, or do the increasingly rosy scenarios from the Cooks and Nate Silvers of the world (our own Patrick Ishmael predicts 60+) mean that it’s now 50 seats or bust? The pessimism status check is going to move to very uncomfortable if that’s the case because … 50 seats is just an awful lot. Even with everything breaking the right way, that would mean we had two 1994 blockbusters in the span of just 16 years. Lightning strikes twice?

    PumaPAC has an Hillary birthday article.

    ——————
    What a wonderful tribute. I love the title and the comments below.

  20. The amazing Hillary Rodham Clinton is on her way again 24/7 to the far east while BO and MO have fun at their playpen the WH. :DRAFT HILLARY” and put in a call to waste managment to leave a dumpster for the TWO.

    October 26, 2010
    tags: Foreign Policy, Hillary Clinton, human rights, Diplomacy, China, Asia, Secretary of State Travelby stacyxSecretary Clinton leaves for foreign travel tomorrow. Here is the entire briefing- it contains a lot of details and a good Q&A with the press. The briefing was conducted by Assistant Secretary Campbell (I’ve highlighted some things below):

    MR. CROWLEY: Good afternoon and welcome to the Department of State. Obviously, we are very mindful of emerging tragedies in the region. Obviously, the Secretary this morning on behalf of the United States offered condolences to Burma for the damage caused in Rakhine State by Cyclone Giri and our embassy there is standing by and has already offered assistance to the Burmese Government.

    And likewise, in Indonesia we are watching carefully unfolding events regarding not only the earthquake yesterday that produced a tsunami this morning, but also now the volcano that has erupted at Mount Merapi. And again, we are standing by to provide whatever assistance the Government of Indonesia may require in the coming days. And the Secretary will have these thoughts in her mind as she departs tomorrow for an extended trip to the region. And here to go through details of what the Secretary hopes to accomplish is our Assistant Secretary Kurt Campbell.

    ASSISTANT SECRETARY CAMPBELL: Thank you, P.J., and good – I guess it’s good afternoon. Good afternoon, everyone. If I can, let me take you through the details of this trip. It’s a very complicated and, frankly, lengthy trip. And I’ll go through all the schedule details and then I’m happy to take any questions on any of the substantive aspects of the upcoming trip.

    First of all, it is Secretary Clinton’s sixth major trip to the region; seventh if you include the shorter trip that we took to Hawaii and then had to turn back for the Haiti tragedy last year. This trip has many stops and it is intended to send a strong message of U.S. engagement on a range of issues – strategic, political, multilateral. We’ll be dealing with some of the key institutions that are evolving in Asia and also economic and trade as well.

    Secretary Clinton sets off tomorrow morning. Her first stop will be in Hawaii where she will have some preliminary discussions with our commanders in Hawaii – Admiral Walsh, CINCPACFLT, and Admiral Willard, our Commander of U.S. Forces in the Pacific. She will be meeting later tomorrow afternoon for a substantial intense interaction with her counterpart, Foreign Minister Maehara from Japan. At that session, we will review all aspects of our bilateral relationship, every – all the areas of coordination and consultation ranging from recent security developments to prospects on the economic and trade front. After that session which will be staged there in Honolulu, we will have a press availability – a joint press conference for the two foreign ministers.

    The following day, Secretary Clinton will be giving a major address on U.S. strategy, accomplishments, and the way forward in the Asia-Pacific region. This, she will present to a collected group, a consortium of organizations that have been brought together by the East-West Center. This is her second major speech on Asia since the one that she gave in January which articulated the key features that the United States would – that would inform our strategy in terms of our multilateral approach to institutions in the Asia-Pacific region. This speech will talk about areas where we intend to focus our activities in the upcoming period, including high-level diplomacy with our allies and partners, the preparations for President Hu Jintao’s visit to Washington in the early part of 2011, steps to prepare for both the G-20 in South Korea and APEC in Japan, and also recognition that at the economic level 2011 is emerging as a very consequential, in many respects, make-or-break year for the United States.

    The speech will be a few high-level visitors that the Secretary will huddle with and then we will depart Hawaii. We will stop in Guam. In Guam, the Secretary will meet with U.S. forces and troops that are stationed in Guam or are moving through. She will also have a bilateral meeting with the governor and also representatives from Guam there on the base. From there, we will proceed directly to Hanoi. In Hanoi, the Secretary will represent the President – special representative to the President – to the East Asia summit meeting that is underway. Secretary Clinton will make a presentation as a guest of the chair on October 30th.

    Before that, in the morning, she will have a series of high-level bilateral meetings, including with President Lee Myung-bak, also a meeting with the new foreign minister, other high-level meetings with Russian counterparts, Indian interlocutors. And in the morning, she will have a meeting with all her counterparts on what we call the Lower Mekong Initiative, which is a collection of states that all share the Mekong River as part of its heritage. And we will discuss next steps associated with our assistance and the program for cooperation that links the Mississippi with the Mekong, two of the world’s great rivers.

    From Hanoi, we will travel to Hainan Island, where Secretary Clinton will have a meeting with her counterpart in the Strategic and Economic Dialogue, State Councilor Dai Bingguo. At that session, we will review the various issues in the U.S.-China relationship, make sure that we’re making adequate preparations for both the upcoming G-20 meeting, APEC, and particularly for the session that will take place in January when Hu Jintao will visit the United States, or in early part of 2011.

    From there, we will proceed to Cambodia. In Cambodia, Secretary Clinton will do a variety of stops, both to highlight civil society projects, other issues in which the United States is deeply engaged, like the Peace Corps. We will have high-level meetings with the foreign minister, with the prime minister. We will have an opportunity to review the tragedies that have befallen Cambodia in the past through the visits to the genocide museum, perhaps interactions with counterparts on the ongoing trial there about the Khmer Rouge period.

    At every stop, the Secretary will highlight both political and economic interactions, a desire to promote U.S. exports and see a more forward engagement on economic matters. I should have said in Vietnam, in addition to the multilateral meetings that will be taking place. The Secretary will meet with the Vietnamese leadership about a range of issues of closer coordination between the United States and Vietnam. This follows on from the Secretary’s visit this last summer to Hanoi as part of the ASEAN Regional Forum.

    From Cambodia, we will go to Malaysia – again, both these countries, the first visit for Secretary Clinton. In Malaysia, the Secretary will have an opportunity to interact with Prime Minister Najib and his key cabinet on a range of issues. Few countries have come as far in terms of our bilateral relationship as the one between the United States and Malaysia; enormous progress on a range of issues – proliferation issues, political coordination, and strategic dialogue. And I think you will see the flourishing U.S.-Malaysian relationship on full display.

    From Malaysia, the Secretary will make a number of stops that we, unfortunately, had to cancel after the tragic earthquake in Haiti forced her to postpone that trip, so we will be stopping in Papua New Guinea. Obviously, Papua New Guinea is a – there’s been enormous petro finds, natural gas and the like, but there are important issues on the island of biodiversity, issues associated with the status of women, and also questions associated about how the current government plans to manage this tremendous windfall that will be coming to the people of Papua New Guinea through this massive find of petroleum and natural gas.

    From Papua New Guinea, we will proceed directly to New Zealand. The Secretary, while in New Zealand, will reaffirm, really, a recommitment to a relationship that has not received as much attention over the course of the last 25 years between the United States. And Wellington –
    there, we will issue the so-called Wellington Declaration which will underscore our desire to see U.S.-New Zealand relations return to a significance in terms of coordination on a range of issues – nonproliferation, politics, climate change, how we work together in the Pacific Islands. And we, of course, are very grateful for the work and support that New Zealand has provided us and other nations in Afghanistan.

    From – in New Zealand, she will visit both Wellington and Christchurch and looks very much forward to interacting with Prime Minister Key. From there, we will go to Australia – Australia, our anchor of our relationship in the Pacific, underscoring strong, political, and security ties there. She will be with Secretary of Defense Robert Gates for what we call our AUSMIN meetings. There, in Melbourne, she will have an opportunity to interact intensively with new Foreign Minister Rudd and also meet new Prime Minister Julia Gillard, along with Steve Smith the new defense minister for Australia, who she has worked closely with when he was foreign minister. A whole range of issues in terms of coordination on Asia-Pacific security issues, coordination on some trade-related issues, and on issues in South Asia.

    On the way home, we will stop in American Samoa. And here, I just want to underscore that we often talk about stepping up our game in the Asian Pacific region. In that formulation, the A gets a lot more attention than the P, the Pacific. You will note on this particular trip that the Secretary will be stopping in three Pacific islands – American Samoa for a quick meeting there on the way home. And I must say that the Secretary and the State Department is very grateful for the encouragement and support that we’ve gotten from Congressman Faleomavaega in terms of our overall desire to increase our assistance and our overall engagement with the Pacific islands.

    So as you can see, it’s a very diverse trip. It covers our engagement with the multilateral institutions of Asia that are evolving – the great important powers of Northeast Asia, high-level diplomacy with Japan, with China, with South Korea. A lot of the key emerging states in Southeast Asia where we have had, frankly, only infrequent visits in the past, the Secretary very much looking forward to those stops.

    This will be the longest trip of her tenure to date. And I think with that, I’ll just open

  21. She who should have been president. Looking at the NG trailer and then looking at that interview with Pakistani youth fielding those difficult question with convincing answers/explanations, the Dims wasted a lifetime opportunity.

  22. “The midterm maelstrom pulling House Democrats under shows no signs of abating, if anything it has intensified.”

    ———————
    Boy have things turned around. Who will bambi blame? The dumb voters of course.

  23. The people are tired of the R’s and the D’s arguing over the keys to the car.

    Any idiot knows how to get a car out of a ditch. You keep shifting back and forth between R and D until the wheels catch. Which is exactly what the voters seem to be doing, both in 2008 and now, and likely 2010. A lot of mud will be slung around until the politicians get the message that they are not the driver. They’re just the gear.

    I have great faith in the American people. I do not think they are stupid, or uninformed.

  24. In the not to be missed category, Sen. Dianne Feinstein stepped way out of the spin cycle yesterday, as she is often wont to do.

    Feinstein was at a campaign event for Sen. Barbara Boxer in San Jose,and was asked by KTVU’s Randy Shandobil how things were going, and she replied, “bad.”

    Feinstein is Boxer’s campaign co-chair.

    Shandobil asked whether Feinstein meant in the House, which Democrats are widely expected to lose, and Feinstein didn’t answer. Later, after the event, she (un)clarified this much: “I think the prevailing view is, and I don’t think this is necessarily correct, is that it’s a very difficult time, there’s no question about that.”

  25. Smile inducer – Frank Caprio on Today Show slams Obama.

    He stands by his statement. He is asked if he is being punished for supporting Hillary Clinton. He stands by the Clintons.

  26. H4T, “I have great faith in the American people. I do not think they are stupid, or uninformed.”

    ————–
    This faith got me to finally become a citizen a few years ago. People are searching since 2006. Obama backlash this early is directly proportional to all the hype they cooked up in 2008. People wanted to believe but Obama does not know how to deliver. I will not be surprised if he is ridiculed out of the WH in two years.

  27. Why does anyone pay any attention to what joyless behar has to belch. I find the woman to be vulgar without the redeeming quality of wit or humor. Is it abc just attempting to keep the show relevant now that the similarly themed The Talk has debuted? Greta and BOR both did a piece on her.

  28. ABM90 she certainly is busy. It’s great that she won’t be back in the United States until Obama has already left to go and make a fool of himself in India.

  29. Rabble Rouser has a Happy Birthday post too.

    http://rabblerouserruminations.blogspot.com/2010/10/happy-birthday-madame-secretary.html

    We like this:

    I was a Democrat until 5/31/08. The DNC engaged in voter fraud and theft;ignored the reports of caucus fraud;took away delegates from Clinton and gave them to Obama;remained silent while Clinton was treated with misogyny by the media; remained silent at the race-baiting;and stopped being DEMOCRATIC. I stopped being a Democrat that day. My party got hijacked by those who do not uphold Democratic ideals and has lost its way. If the DNC returns to being Democratic, so might I.

  30. http://newsflavor.com/politics/us-politics/white-house-insider-president-obama-is-lost-absolutely-lost/

    that plus scorpio horoscope from Cainer: Pleased with yourself? Inspired? Excited? You should be. You will be. Things are shifting now – and they’re heading in a great direction. It is no wonder, really, that you also feel so weary. You have been attempting to move a mountain. You have been trying to budge the unbudgeable or change the unchangeable. People have been saying, ‘You mustn’t do this,’ or ‘You shouldn’t,’ or ‘You can’t’. And you have just been replying or wanting to reply; ‘Well, watch me.’ You are really now starting to get somewhere.

    Put 2 and 2 together..

  31. “It’s like living in a political twilight zone. How rich is the irony that the President Obama won’t endorse Caprio, but former President Clinton will,” one Democratic strategist told POLITICO Tuesday night. “Given this political fiasco, every democrat should seriously question whether the White House understands that their goal in 2010 is not to position themselves for a 2012 relection campaign on the poltical carcasses of good democratic candidates. Thankfully, President Clinton is focused on 2010 and saving ALL democrats.”

  32. comments are interesting on the politico article. like this one:

    “Bill Clinton was/is first and foremost a Democrat. Barack Obama is first and foremost Barack Obama. Bill Clinton came from a real place named Hope, Barack Obama came from fake and named it hope. Bill Clinton spent a poor childhood among blacks, Barack Obama came from a solidly middle-class white home.

    It’s the “other type” of Democrats (the real ones) and independents who will attend the rally and vote for Caprio. They’re also the ONLY future for the Democratic Party.”

  33. Pm317, that’s an interesting quote from Politico. Sounds like the Detox Party is getting more members even before next Tuesday’s results. It’s good to see some of these Dimocrats realize that it is all about Obama to Obama. “Political carcasses” indeed.

  35. admin, this comment made me laugh:

    “Scoop the poop” is clearly one of the successful shovel ready projects of the Obama administration.”

    Talking about Obama’s famous concluding words at the $7500 dinner fundraiser. (I will bet this guy will become a laughingstock before he is booted out of the WH)

    Mr. Obama concluded his remarks at about 7:30, saying he couldn’t stay for dinner.

    “I’ve got to go home to tuck in the girls and walk the dog and scoop the poop,” he said.

    ———–
    The newsflavor ‘insider’ is also talking about saving the ‘party’ and leaving Obama and his WH by the wayside (who knows how true it is but.. at least some in the party are catching on).

  37. PLEASE DO NOT READ THIS IF SALTY LANGUAGE OFFENDS YOU. Because I am married to a sailor, and I am effing FURIOUS.

    Mark Halperin over at The Nation is now exhorting Obama to be more like Bill. Grrrrrrrrr! As if.

    Some of the “access” people at The Nation likely have seen some of those internal polls, and well know that the Dems are looking at armageddon on Tuesday.

    So now, noooow, they want Obama to be Bill Clinton, because they are scared shitless that they thought they were going to be Prom Queen on the arm of the cool guy, and it turns out that ain’t the case.

    What is interesting to me is that they have not suddenly had the epiphany that Clinton-style governance is best for the country. Oh, no. That’s not it. These are not stupid people. They knew that from the fucking beginning. They knew that, from day one.

    But see, Hillary would not have made them Prom Queen. So they threw their lot in with the cool guy and SOLD MY FUCKING COUNTRY DOWN THE RIVER IN THE PROCESS. And yes, they knew it. They might not have foreseen it being this bad, but they KNEW that he was no Hillary, and no Bill, and couldn’t do the job she would do. They didn’t care. Because they are vain, shallow, self-important, snide, fuckwit urban hipster wankstains.

    And I will NEVER forgive them for that. Ever. Not so long as I fucking breathe.

  38. Excuse me – couldn’t type straight. Halperin AND The Nation are telling the boob to “be like Bill”. Two separate articles.

  39. H4T, I can’t believe those bastards!

    pm317,

    I wonder if this scoop the poop is more like “get the scoop on the poop”. I think some shit is happening in the Obama WH and I hope its that he needs to retire yesterday!

  40. The Legal Insurrection blog is an excellent. I have visisted it before, and I have always found Mr. Jacobson to be sane, and levelheaded.

    I like this article, but being that I can be dumber than a 5th grader at times, I didn’t quite follow the first paragraph. I went to the link that was provided for the Legal Insurrection blog thinking that I was going to read something about Hillaryis44 over there, but I didn’t see anything. Also, when I read the comment about a stupid Bill Clinton article at NYTimes, the admin didn’t mean it was something written by Bill Clinton, right? I mean, after rereading that comment above, I think the admin was stating that another Bill Clinton article written by someone from the NYTimes was stupid, right?

    I did read some comments that Bill made about we not giving Øbama credit for some good things he’s accomplished because we didn’t realize how good they actually were (my words, not his), I find that just a little condescending. It sounds like what so many of the snobs in the Democratic Party have been parroting for the past two years; that we’re just a bunch of ignorant rednecks that don’t know what’s good for us, or what’s in “our best interests” (barf). So again, Bill’s words sting sometimes, although I am not sure how serious he is when he makes comments like the one’s that tend to get me on edge.

  41. nonobama,
    I understand what you mean about that…it bothers me sometimes too, but given the position he’s in he has to think of the party…and I think we should understand that. He just can’t come out and say Obama has screwed up like everyone else, thats what Obama is praying he does accidently.

    ———————————————————-

    I found this over at citizen wells I will repost it here:

    White House Insider, Obama behaviour shocking.

    “I’ll give you an example of why President Obama is not right for America. He sure as hell has not been right for the party. Not long ago, the president took a meeting. He’s late, which apparently is becoming more and more common with him. The meeting was almost cancelled. In strolls the president, joking with an aide. He plops down on a sofa, leans over and claps another guy on the back asking how he’s been. Apologizes for being late, says he was “held up”. He laughs some more. The meeting begins. After just ten minutes, during which time the president appears to almost totally withdraw into himself, an aide walks in and whispers something to the president, who then nods and quickly stands up, shakes a few hands and tells another aide to update him later on the rest of the meeting. As the president is walking out he is laughing at something yet again. He asked no questions of those at the meeting – not one. He left after just ten minutes, coming in laughing and leaving laughing. His behavior during that brief time he was there was described as “borderline manic”.”

  42. I hope that everything is ok with Carly Fiorina. That’s a tough break when you’re in the midst of a brutal campaign. I hope she’s able to get out there and thrash that Boxer.

    =================================

    I know that his actions are “for the party”, but he’s just pumping up something that has a big old hole in it. I see the hole, and would prefer that Bill stop wasting his time, and looking foolish for trying to pump up the damn thing in the first place, even if he’s added a patch to it. It needs to be replaced with something new, not something “fixed”. It just irks me.

  44. Wouldn’t it be nice if Bill Clinton could replace the “Øbama’s done some things that are good, yet we are not aware of just how good the things are that he’s done”, and replace it with “Øbama has worked hard at trying to provide the changes that HE promised for America, and it’s understandable if Americans need some time to contemplate and adjust to those changes.” In that way, he places the blame for the change that most people are not supporting on Øbama, and he doesn’t blame regular Americans for not understanding something that they actually do understand?

  45. Manchin probe widens….deep doo doo

    W.Va. probe worries Dems

    A federal investigation into West Virginia Gov. Joe Manchin’s administration has taken a disturbing turn for his Democratic supporters: agents reportedly have subpoenaed the director of the state Aviation Division, along with flight logs and records for official government aircraft.

    The news comes just after federal prosecutors privately asked a judge to delay the sentencing of a contractor who got a no-bid contract to redecorate Manchin’s office. And the developments are set against an ongoing government probe reportedly involving state Democratic Party chairman Larry Puccio, Manchin’s former chief of staff.

  46. Ok, here’s the latest from the “Insider” who has supposedly been spilling some beans about what is going on within the White House.

    ================================================================

    White House Insider: “President Obama is lost. Absolutely lost.”
    Published by Ulsterman on October 26, 2010 in US Politics

    Part two of our most lengthy and detailed interview yet with the White House Insider.

    Author’s Note: Due to the amount of information received in our most recent two-hour interview at the office of the White House Insider, the interview was broken into two parts. Here now is part two:

    facebook.com/Ulsterman1

    _______

    In your email to me last week, you indicated a scandal was coming to the White House. Could you elaborate a bit more on that now? Sadly, with this White House it is no longer a matter of a scandal, but of scandals. I see you did a story recently on the Justice Department situation surrounding the voting rights case. Continue watching that – it’s going to break open more soon after Republicans take the House. As you stated, it’s going to be investigated.
    So is that the scandal you were speaking of? No – and yes. (Silence)

    Ok… I have to be very-very careful here. You need to understand that. I cannot say too much or my position is clearly exposed – or it could be. So I’m hesitant to say too much or the wrong thing.

    But you said in your email last week that…I know what I said. I know that. You don’t need to repeat what the email said, ok? I’m not the only one who needs to be careful here you know. You are getting too bold with this thing. I don’t mind using you to throw up some balloons, but I don’t want you getting hurt for it – and you’re stepping on some very large feet now with this stuff. I don’t know if you fully appreciate that, or the dangers that come with it.

    At least give us an idea on this scandal you indicated earlier. However you wish to say it, I promised my readers information. (Laughs) Your readers! You are really getting into this thing now aren’t you!? Your readers…uh-huh. Don’t forget who gave you this information. Don’t forget who can take it away, ok? And I will. You’re playing your part in this – and I am writing the script. Don’t you -expletive- forget that.

    Just tell me about this scandal. (Leans back, folds arms across chest. Looks outside – then back to me) Ok then – I’ll point your nose in the right direction. Enough people are sniffing in the same garbage pile anyways, including the Times. Though I suspect they are burying it at the moment, or trying to. They are still heavily invested in Obama, but that may change soon… Go back to Chicago. That is the key. There is other crap around the White House, other things that could trip them up, but Chicago is where the real heavy deal is that could bring the administration down. Go back and review Blagojevich. Go back and review Rezko, Barton, Stern, Giordano, Carothers, Jarret. It’s one and the same. It’s all connected, and it’s big. And people know. The White House is -expletive- itself over this stuff. Pelosi has it. Clintons have it – more of it than they had in 2008.

    (Interrupts) What do you mean “have it”? The information – the story. At least some of it, enough of it. It’s all a chess match you know. A series of moves. Right now the White House is scrambling, and they don’t know enemies from friends anymore. The party is attempting to localize the damage so it doesn’t spread. Make it just about Chicago, and worst case, Obama – but not the party. And so you look back to Chicago, you look at the Justice Department, connect the dots. One investigation will potentially reveal the other. And it’s all setting up to happen now if the November elections go down with a Republican landslide. Obama will be left without protection. His inner circle is scared to death. I mean truly frightened by the prospects of what could be coming at them in the coming months. They have enemies both in the Republican Party and the Democratic Party. President Obama is lost. Absolutely lost.”

    So what is your part in this? Why come to me and start all of this? I’ve answered that before. I love my party. I love my country. And yes, I love the game. I won’t be at this much longer…or maybe I will, who knows? (laughs) I had such great hopes for President Obama. Those hopes have been crushed. It wasn’t an easy thing to see. On the campaign, the guy was so good. Brilliant. I told you that already, I know – repeating myself now. But…I get emotional thinking back to 2008 and how much fun that was. Then I think to how fast it all went wrong, how soon we all started to see that there was so little to the man. We got caught up in the moment, and forgot to consider the consequences of electing someone who was simply not prepared to be President. We screwed up. I guess in a way, these interviews I am giving you are a way to…make up for that. At least in some little way.

    Or maybe you enjoy screwing with the White House? Oh sure, there’s that. Yeah…guilty as charged. But it’s also much more than that. I really believe the party needs to purge itself of this administration. And I think we will. November is a start in that direction. New leadership will emerge. The White House will be marginalized – perhaps so much so that there will be a Democrat challenger to Obama in 2012.

    Purge the party of this administration? You really feel the Obama White House is that bad? You remember that question – and then you can come back and ask me again later next year when this scandal finally comes to the surface.

    The scandal in Chicago? Chicago is the primary component – but it will likely start in D.C. – one thing will lead to the other. The Justice Department, and back to Chicago.

    And what if this never happens? What if there is no scandal? What if Obama is simply re-elected in 2012 and serves a full and successful second term? I suppose that is a possibility – but not a probable one. They are scrambling to make that happen, but after November, the White House loses its protection. I told you that – you understand that, right?

    You are talking about Congress? Yes-yes…without Congress, without the Congressional leadership to quash potential hearings, the White House is far more vulnerable. Remember Lewinski? If the Democrats had not lost Congress in 1994, there would have been no scandal – at least not to the extent that it became. But Democrats didn’t control Congress, and so the scandal was allowed – encouraged by those -expletive- Republicans to move ahead. Same thing with Watergate. Democrats in Congress allowed the scandal to grow and move ahead. That’s how it works. And now we have a Democrat President, realizing he is looking at a Republican Congress, and he is facing a real -expletive- storm.

    You used Watergate as an example. Do you really think Obama could be facing a Watergate type scandal? I mean, something that big? Yes I do. I hope not. That is what is going on right now – I’m trying to explain that part of it to you but maybe I’m not doing a good enough job of it. There are those in the party – the Democratic Party, who are right now actively preparing for that possible outcome and taking protective measures to protect the party. Let Obama go down for it – but save the party. President Obama in turn – at least those around him who are capable enough still to function in that way, are trying to keep the party entangled in the mess, to motivate them to continue protecting the White House. THAT is what is going on right now. And the stakes are very high – the repercussions very serious. That is why I keep telling you to fully appreciate the dangers here. This stuff is no joke. That is why I came to you. If this goes bad, and it could just like that, I can pull the plug. And make no mistake – I will.

    I get that – but I’m still having a hard time believing a scandal so big is not being reported by the media. You’re wrong there. It is being reported – bits and pieces of it. The story will already be out there and growing before the mainstream finally runs with it. Don’t forget, most of them still want to protect the White House. That is simply fact. I know this – I worked directly with them during the campaign. But it’s starting to change – and eventually it will break. The barbarians haven’t broken down the gate yet – but after these midterms, they will. Look at the Democrats who are now openly challenging the president. Every day another one rebukes the president. That is an incredibly dangerous thing to do politically – it can destroy a career. Ask yourself why they would be so willing to do that. Are they just stupid, too bold – or is it something else?

    I don’t know… (shakes head) The word is out there – President Obama is in real trouble. They may not have the specifics, but the story of a big scandal coming is circulating now within the party – both parties. So why put your own political career on the line supporting a president who is facing such a fiasco? Simple – they won’t. And so you are seeing the separation happening. The party itself is starting to separate itself from the president. You ever watch those nature programs where the herd doesn’t hang out with the sick one? You got that poor sick antelope or whatever standing all by itself and when it tries to join back with the herd they run away from it? They’ll even attack it themselves if they have to. That’s what happens in politics. If you are in real trouble, the others separate from you. That is what is happening to the president right now.

    (Long pause)

    And the lions are starting to gather…

  47. Well we all know Pe-lousy wont go quietly and she already thinks Obama will nail her to the cross on Nov 3.

    Biden holds no loyalty, if Obama goes down politically in a scandal he gets the Presidency just like LBJ did because he could never win it on his own.

    Hillary and Bill well, just sit there on the side and let the Obama’s hang themselves politically.

    Now if Redi loses his seat, watch him go apoplectic against Obama.

  48. The above article was Part 2. This is Part 1 of the “Insider’s” most recent comments.
    =======================================

    Our latest interview with the White House Insider reveals a Democratic Party civil war, with growing opposition to the Obama White House.

    Author’s Note: This interview took place for nearly two hours over the weekend at the office of the White House Insider. We wish to extend our gratitude for their making time to meet with us despite an extremely demanding schedule. The information contained in this interview is among the most in depth and fascinating to date, and due to the extent of information, will come in two installments. Here is installment one:

    ____

    Thank you again for making time to meet with me. Oh, I should be apologizing to you on having to cancel last time. The campaign work is proving to be a larger task than I originally signed on for, but I can’t complain. As I told you in the email, I’m very happy to be “back in it” as it were.

    Care to let us know what campaign you are working for? Sorry, I don’t wish to reveal that. I’ll just say it’s a campaign that has already received significant national attention, and the working time frame to prepare for Election Day is very short. We are in scramble mode, but things appear to be going well, all things considered.

    Ok then, can I ask you your predictions for the November election, now that we are just days away? How bad do you think it’s going to be for the Democrats? I have been given access to a significant amount of internals all across the country. Senate, House, and governor races, and…well, it is going to be a very tough night for the Democratic Party. It is as bad as I and some others feared it would be for us a couple months ago. Nothing has improved – maybe a few races here and there have tightened, but overall, it’s looking very bad for us. Actually worse than the national polling data currently suggests even.

    So how many seats do you see Democrats losing in the House? At least 50 – possibly a bit more. It will be worse than what we saw in 1994, and I was around for that ass-kicking.

    How about the Senate? That one is just a bit tougher to call. I think the Republicans right now have a 50/50 chance of taking a very slim majority. But at the very least, they are going to gain seven seats, which will basically shut down any sure-thing Democratic Party agenda in the Senate. We don’t fear that as much as what is going on with the House. It is going to be very difficult working with the House – the Republicans are taking on an increasingly aggressive tone heading into the election, and I think in 2011, they are going to putting on an all out offensive against the Obama agenda.

    As a Democrat, do you see that as a bad thing? Not necessarily, but at the same time, I don’t wish to see the political extremes swing back the other way. (Smiles) Then again, maybe I do, because if that happens, the Republicans could be right back on their ass in 2012 – IF the Democrats can get their -expletive- together, which at this point, I am not too hopeful of.

    So who do you place the most blame for the Democratic Party’s troubles today? President Obama and his administration -without a doubt. The Obama White House has been a political train wreck from day one, and it isn’t getting any better at the moment. You already know my feelings on that.

    Previously you stated that Obama could be re-elected in 2012, and that if he improved himself on the job – that if he took a more active and responsible role as President, that you would support him. Do you still feel that way? Is that what I said? (shakes head) Well…(pauses) Ok, I’ll just come out and say what is already underway, and to hell with the possible consequences to me. I will not support Barack Obama in 2012. That possibility has left the table for me. Based on what I know, what I have been told, what I have seen in recent weeks…no, I cannot support the President for a second term. My concern for the party, for the country…my conscience does not allow me that option any longer. Obama is not fit to be president. He simply does not possess the inclinations necessary to lead the country. And I don’t like saying that. I helped the man get elected. I was in the trenches day after day from city to city helping things get done in 2008…I take no pleasure in saying I was a part of that. And I take no pleasure in saying Obama should not be re-elected in 2012.

    That is a very strong statement – anything recent that causes you to now say you will not support Obama in 2012? (Long pause – question is repeated) There is much I have been told, some I know, some more that will probably develop in the coming weeks and months. But you want specifics, right? I understand that…I’ll give you an example of why President Obama is not right for America. He sure as hell has not been right for the party. Not long ago, the president took a meeting. He’s late, which apparently is becoming more and more common with him. The meeting was almost cancelled. In strolls the president, joking with an aide. He plops down on a sofa, leans over and claps another guy on the back asking how he’s been. Apologizes for being late, says he was “held up”. He laughs some more. The meeting begins. After just ten minutes, during which time the president appears to almost totally withdraw into himself, an aide walks in and whispers something to the president, who then nods and quickly stands up, shakes a few hands and tells another aide to update him later on the rest of the meeting. As the president is walking out he is laughing at something yet again. He asked no questions of those at the meeting – not one. He left after just ten minutes, coming in laughing and leaving laughing. His behavior during that brief time he was there was described as “borderline manic”.

    Ok, you have already stated previously that the president doesn’t show much interest in the day to day business of being president – why is this example so bad, or different? Care to know what that particular meeting was about on that day?

    Certainly. Afghanistan. That meeting was an update on Afghanistan, and the President of the United States, the Commander in Chief, could give a -expletive-.

    Were you actually there to witness this? No, I was long gone from the White House by then. It was told to me though by someone who was. They were there. First hand. They were also left to apologize to the ones left in the room after the president left. Some of these were military. They were not happy. No…that is not accurate. They were pissed. They didn’t say much at the time, but word got back. They were in shock at the president’s behavior. The country had just lost a number of soldiers the week prior, the public opinion on the war was falling…and the president didn’t seem to care. He arrives late, leaves early, appears to emotionally shut down during the actual discussion, and to then start laughing once again as he is leaving…how does someone reconcile with that kind of behavior? I can’t. It turns my stomach. I didn’t want to believe what I was being told, but I had seen similar kinds of behavior from the president myself, and I can’t dispute the credibility of the source. They have no reason to lie.

    So is that one example the real tipping point for you in no longer being willing to support Obama in 2012? Or do you have any others you wish to share? Oh, I have others, though I cannot share all of them at this point because they involve some still in range of potential White House retribution. Then again, I suppose I am still in range of such retribution myself.

    What do you mean by retribution? Punishment. Political punishment, and even personal punishment. The powers of a president extend far beyond the Oval Office – you know that. I make my living, and it has been a very good living, working within the system of politics. A president can create considerable…pressure if you will, to limit or even destroy my place in that system. Working with a president is an extraordinary and terrifying thing. In regards to my experience with Obama, it became far less extraordinary and far more terrifying. And it’s getting worse.

    Terrifying? Yes, terrifying. To see one’s expectations so disappointed. To see a figure who wields such great power and influence fall so short of the responsibilities of that power and influence…that is terrifying to witness. Initially I developed great fear for my party – for the Democrats whose political careers were being destroyed by this administration and party leadership. Now I sincerely fear for my country.

    So at this point you really don’t believe that President Obama can grow into a more effective leader? No.

    But he could still be re-elected in 2012, right? Absolutely. He remains an effective campaigner – the best in politics, and these days, that can be enough to get elected. You don’t actually have to know what you are doing – you just have to look and sound like you know what you are doing.

    But you don’t want to see Obama re-elected? I apologize if I’m repeating myself here, but I just want to clarify because in the past you still seemed hopeful that Obama could evolve and become a stronger leader, but that hope seems to have left you. If Barack Obama is the Democratic Party nominee, I will not participate in any way in his election. It will be the first time in some 20 years that I will have removed myself totally from the process of helping elect the Democratic Party candidate for President. (Leans toward me) I do not know if the country can survive another four years of Barack Obama, and frankly, I want nothing to do with helping us find out. The man is an incompetent. The man is a tool of the extreme far left that has utterly corrupted the Democratic Party. The man and those now closest to him in the administration appear to abhor America’s history. They detest anyone who does not fully subscribe to their positions. They are corrupt, they are increasingly paranoid, and they are taking this country down a path by which we may never recover.

    You sound like Rush Limbaugh. -Expletive- you…(pause) I apologize for that, but no, I am not some right winger. You know that. I have spent decades helping to build the Democratic Party up. I have worked alongside some wonderful, sincere, intelligent people during that time. Some of those people have now seen their careers tarnished, or ended entirely due to this administration. Others are fighting for survival, but continue to face attack from this administration. Enough is enough. I will not defend, I will not support, I will not play a part in such blatant misuse of power and authority that continues to be the practice of this administration. No more. My primary goal now is to help as many good Democrats survive the disaster that will be the November elections, and from there, provide a far more capable and competent candidate to be the Democratic Party nominee for 2012.

    It sounds like you’re preparing for political war with this White House. Yes, I suppose that is a fair description of what is happening. I’m not alone. There are more and more of us within the Democratic Party who are ready to challenge this president.

    Even if it tears the Democratic Party apart in the process? It won’t. It will get messy, it already is – but the party is stronger than the president…particularly this president. Remove the media protection, remove the support and protection of a Congressional leadership that has been carrying the water for the White House for the last two years, and you will see a White House greatly reduced. But the party will survive – and be made stronger for it. The American people need to know that the Obama administration does not represent the Democratic Party – and it is the Democratic Party that remains the party of the people. The Obama administration only represents themselves at the expense of all others. That fact needs to be made more known and that is what I intend to see get done after November.

    That seems a very dangerous thing to do career-wise – take on the White House so directly. Absolutely. You got that right, but I have help in high places you know – I’m not so stupid as to do this alone.

    High places? There still remain some in the Obama administration who are not fully supportive of the president…who are weighing certain options. I am confident there will be a significant challenge to the president from within the Democratic Party in 2012.

    Hillary Clinton? (Winks) That would be great wouldn’t it?

    So you support Hillary Clinton running against Obama in 2012? Absolutely – at this point, absolutely. And she could win you know. If things don’t improve dramatically in the country by then, she could win. Here’s your headline for today – there is a movement within the Democratic Party to make Hillary the nominee in 2012 – not Obama. I’m not talking a small group of “what ifs” here, I’m talking about significant members of the party, significant financial backers…a legitimate and serious move to make Hillary Clinton our nominee. It is not quite fully initiated yet, but it’s getting there. And I don’t mind saying so publicly now – Mr. President, you are failing this country, you are failing the Democratic Party, and we will not support your further interest in doing so for another four years.

    In your email to me last week, you indicated a scandal was coming to the White House. Could you elaborate a bit more on that now?

  49. This is going to be stunning next Tuesday looking at this data

    Absentee and early voting returns across the country so far in 2010 indicate that the composition of the electorate will be dramatically different than it was in 2008. The Republican National Committee, working with state Republican parties, has placed a strong emphasis this year on encouraging presidential-year-only Republicans to cast their votes by absentee ballot or early-in -person through both paid and volunteer voter contact.

    To date, the RNC has mailed 7.4 million absentee ballot application forms to voters in competitive congressional districts and placed 6 million paid phone calls to low- and mid-propensity recipients to encourage them to vote absentee.

    The RNC has dropped 6.7 million early vote promotion mail pieces to targeted voters and chased those mail pieces with 5.5 million paid phone calls.

    Our 360 Victory offices have made 6.2 million volunteer voter contacts (both phone and door-to-door) to promote absentee voting and chase outstanding Republican ballots. The Victory program has made an additional 4.6 million volunteer voter contacts to promote early voting. That’s on top of the 24.4 million persuasion, ID, and GOTV calls made by our volunteers so far this year.

    Let’s look at some specific results in a few states:

    Democrats in Colorado had an advantage of 28,357 absentee and early votes going in to Election Day in 2008, but this year Republicans have surged and currently lead with 19,616 more votes cast than the Democrats (a swing of 47,973 ballots cast). That translates into a 5% lead (41.8%-36.7%) at this point, and a swing of 6.5% from 2008 when the final percentages were 35.77% Democrat and 34.25% Republican.

    Colorado 2008 Raw 2008% 2010 Raw 2010%
    GOP 638,588 34.25% 161,631 41.80%
    DEM 666,945 35.77% 142,015 36.77%

    North Carolina

    At this point in 2008, Democrats had a 32% advantage among early voters, with over 420,000 more registered Democrats having voted early than Republicans. But in 2010, Democrats lead by less than 8 points among early voters after North Carolina Republicans closed the gap by 390,000 votes (a 24-point swing). And this year, even though Republicans make up less than 32 percent of registered voters in North Carolina, they make up more than 37% of early voters.

    North Carolina 2008 Raw 2008% 2010 Raw 2010%
    GOP 337,376 25.47% 157,607 37.41%
    DEM 757,841 57.21% 190,930 45.32%
    IND/Other 228,811 17.27% 72,342 17.17%

    Iowa

    Democrats in Iowa have historically had a large advantage in absentee and early voting. In 2008, Democrats went into Election Day with a 17-point lead (45.86% to 28.78%). That lead has been cut to 7.04% so far this year (45.20% to 38.16%). As a percentage of total votes cast, Republicans have increased by 9% while Democrats have shrunk. And Iowa Republicans have a history of particularly large Election Day turnout advantages.

    Iowa 2008 Raw 2008% 2010 Raw 2010%
    GOP 156,986 28.78% 89,497 38.16%
    DEM 250,104 45.86% 106,022 45.20%
    IND/Other 138,328 25.36% 39,031 16.64%

    Nevada

    Democrats led in combined absentee and early voting by 11% in 2008. With 257,000 ballots cast so far this year, the Democrat lead has shrunk to 2%, or about 5,000 votes. Democrats have a 5% registration advantage in the state, meaning Republicans are outperforming registration by around 3%.

    Nevada 2010 Raw 2010%
    GOP 106,685 41.52%
    DEM 111,917 43.56%
    IND/Other 38,326 14.92%

    Florida

    Republicans currently lead in combined absentee returns and early votes by 200,000 voters and make up 52% of ballots cast while Democrats make up just 34%. This is a remarkable turnaround from 2008 when Democrats went into Election Day with a 300,000 voter advantage.

    Florida 2008 Raw 2008% 2010 Raw 2010%
    GOP 1,635,843 37.95% 586,570 52.06%
    DEM 1,935,672 44.90% 386,416 34.29%
    IND/Other 739,360 17.15% 153,695 13.64%

    Pennsylvania

    Democrats have a 14% voter registration advantage, yet Republicans are leading in absentee returns by 19%. Republicans lead absentee returns in six Democrat-held targeted congressional districts.

    Ohio

    Based solely on party registration (a potentially misleading statistic in Ohio where a voter’s party is determined by primary vote history alone) Democrats have seen their lead shrink from 285,000 votes cast (an 18% lead), in 2008 to a margin of only 36,000 this year. RNC internal targeting has Republican voters casting 15,000 more ballots and leading absentee voting 44%-40%. In the state’s three largest counties (Cuyahoga, Franklin, and Hamilton), Republicans have seen their share of the vote increase from 26% in 2008 to 40% this year.

    Conclusion:

    One week out from Election Day, Republican performance in absentee and early voting reflects the enthusiasm gap and likely turnout advantage seen in both internal and public polling. Democrat claims of a stronger ground game are contradicted by the data and appear to be a brazen attempt to motivate a depressed base.

    Combined with our traditional Election Day turnout advantage, this kind of absentee and early voting performance will drive Republican victories all over the country in 7 short days.

  50. nomobama, I had just read this…he must be back on drugs…laughing…being late..not being engaged…that’s drugs to me!

    I know Hillbuzz thinks this guy is not real this “insider”, but I bet its someone like Halperin or maybe even else this Kal guy. I don’t know but he’s in trouble and its not good with China, USSR and all those folks could cause us lots of problems without a real leader. I can’t imagine why they are waiting? Politics is really dirty businss. He is definitely going to cheat, but I don’t know how many SOS’s and county chair willing to help him cheat if he’s going down.

  51. I’m just glad that Hillary and Gates are there handling these foreign countries…what if he hadn’t got Hillary and put some of his weird buddies in those positions….scary!

  52. I just hope he doesn’t start a war with Iran to cover these elections…that would stop them for awhile.

  53. Good night all…I have had a long day…see you all in the morning!

    Admin: great article and I am so glad your here to help rednecks like me understand all this stuff!

  54. Obviously Limbaugh is pulling a scam here. Does anyone think he would WANT Hillary as Pres, or even as Dem nominee?

    This ‘White House Insider’ sounds phoney to me too.

  55. There are surrogates such as Ricki Lieberman who MUST put out the flawed and frankly fake reasoning that electing Dems for good or ill must continue to be done this November. President Clinton acting for himself as well as for Madam Secretary simply cannot be out saying vote the Obamabums out. I can listen to this and respect it from them but that does not mean I am going to do it. Party leaders, current and former, have to keep up the pretense that things will get better with the party. They are correct, but only after it is purged and fumigated. You cannot build something on top of a pile of garbage and expect it to be anything but garbage full of roaches also.

    When Democratic candidates loose their shirts, the professional party hacks who orchestrated the takeover by Chicago thugs with full collusion by idiot elites will be diminished greatly or in many cases gone. This has to be done down to the precinct level. And we have to make sure that they do not sneak back in with some fake rehabilitated crap. Once a lying cheating scumbag, always a lying cheating scumbag. They have no place in public discourse, policy, or power. They are dangerous. The plaintive whining about how could we know Obama would be so bad. The response should be are you stupid or lazy. Millions knew about him but you did not. Why?

  56. When candidates such as Frank Caprio can openly and boldly tell the big boss to shove it and gleefully refuse to retract, the boss is not the boss any longer except in name only. Gene Taylor saying he voted for McCain, other candidates saying they will not vote for Pelosi for speaker or majority leader, open talk of switching VP’s so someone can save the boss’s butt is another way of saying of the king is very sick and in the process of kicking the bucket. The public knows that the Republicans are going after Obama and this is what they want.

  57. admin, you’re putting in long hours and doing brilliant work, something very much in common with birthday girl Hillary. Is/was it your birthday too – I do not expect an answer!
    ————–
    Regarding that video of NJ teachers gone wild which exists in a comment on a thread above: It has gone viral. New Jersey News aired it on their broadcast last night. (www.njn.net/news is the general link) It was the second report given and lasted perhaps 5 minutes. Gave considerable time to a man defending the teachers and pointing out what he saw to be heavy editing. This morning, Gateway has covered it from different sources and has a good video of Gov. Christie’s public response to it. It’s so excellent that the situation is out bigtime!

  58. Last night’s debate between Caprio, Chafee and Robitalle. Ch 12 WPRI reports: Chafee didn’t seem as sharp and as crisp as he was in the last debate; in short, he failed to shine.

    Caprio, on the other hand, sounding confident. He captured the attention of the audience when he refered to a story about his daughter.

    Robitaille, the Republican candidate, seemed to focus on the importance of wasting time pointing fingers at Chafee and Caprio as he demostarted so well by his own actions…

    Looking forward to Big Dawg coming to RI this Sunday to put a lock on the election of Caprio for governor…

  59. This is a thread hogger but I don’t know what to cut. And it ties in with Mrs. Smith’s last statement @ 7:27.

    Clinton on the stump: Does he really want Obama and Dems to win?
    By: Byron York
    Chief Political Correspondent
    October 27, 2010
    Chicago – To some Democrats, former President Bill Clinton is the party’s campaigner-in-chief. And if there’s any place a big gun is needed, it’s here in Chicago, where Democrats, represented by the lackluster and scandal-plagued Alexi Giannoulias, are in grave danger of losing a Senate seat to Republican Rep. Mark Kirk. And not just any Senate seat — at stake is the seat formerly occupied by Barack Obama himself, a trophy Democrats would hate to lose. So on Tuesday, with the hours until Election Day ebbing away, the campaigner-in-chief came to the rescue. The problem was, it wasn’t entirely clear how much Clinton really wanted to help Democrats, and especially Obama, win next week’s elections. In the course of a one-hour speech, Clinton, whose wife lost a bitter nomination battle to Obama just two years ago and might still be considering another run for the White House, offered faint praise for the current president and a steady stream of criticism for Democrats, who he said have failed to communicate their message to the voters. If Clinton, who also seemed deeply concerned with defending his own record as president, had simply wanted to fire up the troubled party faithful here, he could have delivered a rousing defense of Obama and his party. Instead, his message was at best mixed, and at the end a listener could not be entirely sure whether Clinton truly believes Democrats deserve to win in November. The event began like any other Clinton appearance: he was late, first a half-hour, then an hour, then 90 minutes. As a crowd of several hundred party activists, volunteers, and labor organizers milled around a ballroom at the posh Palmer House Hotel, a woman in the audience tried to breathe a little life into a group that had nothing to do but wait. “Fired up!” she shouted. “Ready to go!” A few people scattered around the room joined in. “Fired up! Ready to go!” After several more turns, perhaps half the crowd was chanting. But the enthusiasm never spread all around. Dissatisfied, the woman tried again a few moments later. “Yes we can!” she yelled. “Yes we can!” This time, maybe a half-dozen people joined in before it fizzled out altogether. Nobody cared; they were too busy with other things. Finally, Clinton appeared. He got an enthusiastic reception, but as he spoke, it seemed that he, too, was having trouble getting fired up about his party’s prospects. Clinton explained that he had originally “planned to do a handful of events for people who supported Hillary when she ran for president.” It was a slightly off-key beginning, since, of course, Mrs. Clinton’s opponent in that race was Barack Obama. Things went a little more off-key when Clinton offered an assessment of Obama and Democratic leaders that would barely qualify as faint praise: “I personally believe both the president and the Congress have done a better job than most people think they have done,” Clinton said. It’s safe to say that won’t end up in a Democratic campaign commercial. Clinton then lectured Democrats about the weaknesses of their campaign so far. The party has achieved significant things on issues like the stimulus, health care and education, he said, but the public doesn’t fully appreciate what’s been done. For example, Democrats extended the period of time in which student loan recipients can pay back their debt, meaning new graduates will not have to make career choices based on their indebtedness. That achievement alone would help fire up the youth vote, Clinton lectured the audience, but Democrats haven’t made enough of it. After the speech, in an impromptu interview with ABC News, Clinton said, “It’s what happened to me in ’94,” meaning that today’s political atmosphere is similar to the time he famously lost both houses of Congress to Republicans in his first midterm election. Bringing up that disastrous defeat is a comparison that cannot have been welcome in Democratic circles. Then, in what appeared to be a clear jab at the White House, Clinton agreed to campaign on behalf of Frank Caprio, the Democratic candidate for governor of Rhode Island who was snubbed by President Obama and who later said that Obama can “take his endorsement and shove it.” Caprio endorsed Hillary Clinton over Obama in the 2008 Democratic primary; now, Clinton’s endorsement of Caprio sends the signal that he’s not necessarily on the same page with the president. Clinton also spent plenty of time bashing the GOP. He portrayed Republicans as determined to destroy the American middle class and turn back the clock not just a few decades but more than a century. “Do you want to build a 21st Century modern economy?” he asked. “Or do you really want to take this country back to the 19th Century to the era of the robber barons, when there was no middle class in America?” That’s what Republicans want to do, he said. As Clinton told it, the chief villains in this Republican drive to take America back are — no surprise — former Bush White House aide Karl Rove and a shadowy network of Republican millionaires and billionaires. “Karl Rove and his crowd,” Clinton said, have created political organizations with “phony names and anonymous donors…why don’t these people want you to know who they are?” Clinton repeatedly told the crowd to “follow the money.” Want to know why Republicans hope to repeal Obamacare? “Follow the money.” Want to know why Republicans want to turn back or slow any number of recent Democratic initiatives? “Follow the money.” “If they elect Republicans, they’ll make a lot more money,” Clinton said of those anonymous donors. “They’re paying for something. This is an investment for them.” If Clinton had talked only about Republicans, his performance would have been entirely conventional and unremarkable. But his remarks about his own party left the impression that he believes Democrats, including President Obama, have failed to make their case to the American people. There’s no doubt Clinton, the campaigner-in-chief, is spending a lot of time making appearances for Democrats. Whether he truly wants them to win is another question.

    “Clinton on the stump: Does he really want Obama and Dems to win?”

    Chief Political Correspondent

    _____________________

    BC wants Hillary Democrats to win… Bill Clinton is purging the party of Obama Democrats one by one by one. As Byron York has so brilliantly noticed !

  63. Just returned from a 10 day trip to Italy. In one of the small town, while I was at a small computer place, uploading and clearing email, the sole employee asked me about Obama. I gave it to him, and he said I was the first American he had asked that said that. I told him, things have changed. I am not sure he had a preference, but at least internationally we are spreading the word.

    I have a lot of catching up to do on the blog.

  64. So they want the fake potus to be more like Bill? Not going to happen.

    Who wants a fake one when we can have the real thing?

  65. Vermont college students send Hillary Clinton a message

    Colchester, Vermont – October 26, 2010

    Tuesday is Hillary Clinton’s birthday. A pair Vermont college students and their 17,000 supporters are sending the Secretary of State a big birthday message. It’s a postcard. On one side there’s a photo of a Congolese woman holding her baby. The other side reads:

    “Happy Birthday! As a gift to yourself and the women of the world, we ask that you make peace in East Congo a foreign policy priority.”

    The Congo has been called the worst place in the world to be a woman.

    “The Congo is basically ground zero in terms of sexual violence against women and girls,” said Lisa F. Jackson, event participant.

    Jackson is a documentary filmmaker who’s experienced the terror in the Congo firsthand. She was invited to St. Mike’s to highlight college’s ongoing efforts to raise awareness. Her film shows how rebel forces use sexual violence against women as a weapon in their battle over territory.

    “The horror, the brutality, the public nature of it, the desecration of their bodies becomes a huge spectacle,” said Jackson.

    “What is happening in the Congo is horrible,” said Mukeba Cleophace, a Congolese refugee, “It cannot happen in the 21st century because we have lost more than 6 million people. The victims are the women who are raped.

    Mukeba Cleophace fled his home in the Congo five years ago. He joined the growing population of Congolese refugees in Burlington. It’s through this connection he met two students from St. Mike’s College.

    “It’s actually very personal for us because we meet the people that have the stories,” said Kate Bailey, a co-founder of the “Dear Hillary Campaign.”

    “They have asked us not to help them adjust to Vermont and our cold weather, but actually to support their loved ones in the Congo,” said Leah Ziegler, who also founded the movement.

    The two women helped their new friends by breaking the silence and talking about what no one wanted to. It’s called the “Dear Hillary Campaign” and in a few short months it’s grown to an international organization. Now the group is sending 17,000 birthday cards to the Secretary of State with an unforgettable message.

    “When you get the picture of the girl’s face holding a baby in the mail it’s a little old-fashioned but it’s definitely powerful,” said Bailey.

    The campaign’s organizers say they want a foreign policy change rather than humanitarian response. They don’t want any more U.S. dollars spent in rebel connected countries.

    “The state department has given humanitarian aid to the Congo but we would like to see high level diplomatic action,” Bailey said, “We want Hillary Clinton’s response to pull out our development aid and our taxpayer dollars in Rwanda.”

    “Sending this card is going to remind the Secretary of State that what is happening in the Congo needs more attention,” said Cleophace.

    And Jackson, who’s taken multiple trips to the worn-torn country to speak with the rape victims, agrees.

    “I think that this Dear Hillary Campaign is inspiring,” she said, “One postcard is one postcard, but 16 or 17,000 postcards is a lot of mail. That’s going to make an impact.”

    The movement started in June. Now the “Dear Hillary Campaign” has 56 chapters in more than 20 states and four countries.

  66. Bill Clinton to campaign for Frank Caprio

    By JONATHAN ALLEN & MAGGIE HABERMAN | 10/26/10

    Bill Clinton will campaign this week for Rhode Island Democratic gubernatorial nominee Frank Caprio, providing a stark contrast to President Barack Obama’s snub of Caprio earlier this week, according to several Democratic sources.

    The details of Clinton’s visit have not been made public, but his endorsement could give a boost to Caprio the same week that the gubernatorial candidate said publicly that Obama could “shove it” when it comes to a withheld endorsement.

    Some Democratic operatives have been furious at the White House for the president’s snub of Caprio and his attendance at a Democratic Congessional Campaign Committee fundraiser held at the home of a supporter of Caprio rival Lincoln Chafee, an independent who backed Obama in the 2008 presidential campaign.

    “It’s like living in a political twilight zone. How rich is the irony that the President Obama won’t endorse Caprio, but former President Clinton will,” one Democratic strategist told POLITICO Tuesday night. “Given this political fiasco, every democrat should seriously question whether the White House understands that their goal in 2010 is not to position themselves for a 2012 relection campaign on the poltical carcasses of good democratic candidates. Thankfully, President Clinton is focused on 2010 and saving ALL democrats.”

  67. I have noticed a shift on Drudge from negative Obama press to negative Bill press while campaigning for demnocratic candidates. It seems the fix is and remains in place for all things blamed on Clintons’.

  68. Yeah i noticed the Clinton plays to half empty gyms and a new one today said people started leaving after Bill turned up an hour late and droned on.

    I have 1 question, where is the messiah, he didnt want Bill around 2 years ago and now has him crisscrossing the country trying to save his ass.

  69. Nomobama, in answer to your questions – “Blog of the day” is a feature on Jacobson’s website which can be found on the left hand column.

    We’ll have more on the referenced NYTimes article in today’s post later today. What we meant was that the NYTimes wrote a dumb article about Bill Clinton. More on this today.

  70. JbStonesFan you are correct in your assessment. Matt Drudge is “E” over “I” and can’t help a Clinton bashing whenever the opportunity presents itself. It’s his comfort zone. It’s how he made his reputation – Clinton bashing.

    Drudge it should be remembered also held his fire during the general elections and protected Barack Obama. By bashing Bill and Hill, he rides with Obama.

  77. some humor…..

    Muslim suicide bombers in Britain are set to begin a three-day strike on Monday in a dispute over the number of virgins they are entitled to in the afterlife.

    Emergency talks with Al Qaeda have so far failed to produce an agreement. The unrest began last Tuesday when Al Qaeda announced that the number of virgins a suicide bomber would receive after his death will be cut by 25% this February, from 72 to only 60. The rationale for the cut was the increase in recent years of the number of suicide bombings and a subsequent shortage of virgins in the afterlife.

    The suicide bomber’s union, the British Organization of Occupational Martyrs (BOOM) responded with a statement that this was unacceptable to its members and immediately balloted for strike action. General Secretary Abdullah Amir told the press, “Our members are literally working themselves to death in the cause of Jihad. We don’t ask for much in return, and to be treated like this is like a kick in the teeth.”

    Speaking from his shed in Tipton in the West Midlands, in which he currently resides, Al Qaeda chief executive, Osama bin Laden, explained, “We sympathize with our workers’ concerns, but Al Qaeda is just not in a position to meet their demands. They are simply not accepting the realities of modern-day Jihad in a competitive marketplace. Thanks to Western depravity there is now a chronic shortage of virgins in the afterlife. It’s a straight choice between reducing expenditure and laying people off. I don’t like cutting wages but I’d hate to have to tell 3,000 of my staff that they won’t be able to blow themselves up.”

    Spokespersons for the Union in England, Ireland, Wales, and the entire Australian continent stated that the strike would not affect their operations, as “there are no virgins in their areas anyway.”

    Apparently the drop in the number of suicide bombings has been put down to the emergence of Scottish singing star Susan Boyle — now that Muslims know what an actual virgin looks like, they are not so keen on going to Paradise.

    Clinton’s Montreal speech a hot ticket
    Board of trade event sold out. ‘He’s considered a speaker who always delivers,’ says group’s president Leblanc
    _____________

    He spoke last year at the Canadian National Exhibition grounds in Toronto and I attended. There was very little notice given and the stadium was three-quarters full – thousands of people. While I could not see him except on the auditron, he was so relaxed it was as if he was just sitting on an easy boy chair talking to people. Very compelling. I would go back if he came to Toronto again.

  80. MASSILLON, Ohio — Former President Bill Clinton will not make an appearance outside of Paul Brown Stadium during the most important high school football game of the year.

    The 120th match-up between the Massillon Tigers and its arch rival, Canton McKinley Bulldogs, will draw thousands to Paul Brown Stadium this Saturday.

    Just days before the important mid-term election, however, the crowd that will be there is also seen by political candidates and their parties as an opportunity to shake a lot of hands and stump for their candidates.

    The former President was scheduled to attend a public tailgate gathering in a public park across from the stadium, campaigning for Ohio Governor Ted Strickland and Congressman John Boccieri. Both are democratic incumbents running for re-election in difficult races.

    Congressman Boccieri’s Republican rival, Jim Renacci, had also announced plans to be in the crowd along with House Minority Leader John Boehner.

    But Massillon Mayor Francis Cicchinelli Jr. said he did not want the most important high school football game of the year to become a political rally.

  81. Shadowfax, You and I feel the same way about our governor’s race, but since I read Admin’s post last night and thought about the consequences of leaving one cell left of the cancer that has invaded our once wonderful party is compelling me to vote for Perry.
    How I have decided is too think about this is one huge cancer tumor growing in the belly of America. I am the surgeon, would I live one cancer cell just because it was small or would I remove the whole cancer….once I thought about it that way I figured out I could vote for Perry.

  82. We’ll take care of Perry next election! After this election (surgery) we are going to put the government on radiation therapy….when we find one abnormal cell it will be gone on the cycle!

    _____________________________________________________

    Shadowfax, Wow! There’s no misinterpreting that statement. As I have no intention of moving to the former great state of California, I leave you and your neighbors to your own devices. Do I belive that a vote for Brown is a vote for nØbama? YES, as I agree wholeheartedly with Admin, “Vote to Defeat Every Democrat – Leave None Alive”. Was I telling you how to vote? NO. Perhaps “encouraging” Californians to strongly consider would be a better way of stating my sentiments.

    Although I’m not loading the moving van, I do believe strongly that I have a dog in the fight in that some portion of my ever-increasing future federal tax liability will assuredly be diverted to Sacramento to bail out the world’s 5th largest economy.

    Are you sure you won’t reconsider giving a sister a little love?

  84. I am absolutely not voting for Brown. I may not agree with Whitman on some points of ideology, but I don’t agree with Brown on CALLING WOMEN WHORES, which I’m sorry to disabuse everyone of the bullshit notion otherwise, IS A VALID IDEOLOGICAL REASON NOT TO VOTE FOR SOMEONE. I happen to prioritize the treatment of women above anything else, including women running for office. A vote for Brown is a vote to put the treatment of women in last effing place at the polls. Sure, it matters … but not enough to vote based on it. Which means it doesn’t matter to them at all.

    When the fuck did “treating women like shit” get erased from the list of political ideologies that we were allowed to consider in our choice of candidates?!

  85. confloyd, how my state is run and public education is more important to me than taking down a Dem governor.

    I will vote for a woman I don’t like, to help defeat the Fraud. A balance of power in the congress is always good.

    I dislike Boxer, but can’t stand Carley. So I will vote for Nomobama’s Carley…taking it off my conscience.

    I will not budge on my governor nor will I budge on supporting Diane Feinstein.

  86. With less than a week to go before Election Day, Republican Congressman Mark Kirk and Democratic State Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias remain in a close battle for Illinois’ open U.S. Senate seat.

    The latest statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters in Illinois shows Kirk picking up 46% of the vote, while Giannoulias draws support from 42%. Five percent (5%) like Green Party candidate LeAlan Jones, and another five percent (5%) prefer some other candidate. Two percent (2%) are undecided at this time. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

    The race is still a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Senate Balance of Power rankings.

    The race is little changed from last week, when Kirk led 44% to 40%. Highlighting the closeness of the contest is the fact that Kirk and Giannoulias have now run within four points or less of each other in 11 surveys since early June. Prior to the latest results, Jones’ support held steady at four percent (4%) in four surveys since September.

    But Democrats are counting on visits to Illinois this week by Bill Clinton and President Obama to shift voters in the Democratic-leaning state into Giannoulias’ column.

    ………………………………….

    Interesting thing is, this is the first time anyone has shifted past 45%. Kirk must have the edge here now.

  87. Janis, Brown didn’t call Meg a whore, get your facts straight.
    Yes, someone in his presence did, he apologized several times for that person, so if you want to use his being in the area and not humble enough, go ahead.

  88. Shadowfax,

    Of coarse everyone should vote however they want…just wanted to let you know how I managed to get my thinking straight. Believe me, its hard to vote for any republican, but I live in Red Texas…most of the time…its the only choice.

  89. I have to laugh at the photos and headlines on HuffPuff…

    Reefer Madness 2010

    (Takes me back to the spin when I was a teen, that pot leads to heroine and jumping to your death out of windows…)

  90. Shadowfax,

    The right wing is out to stop that prop 19, but the state is ready to go under. If they are smart they’d legalize it and they’d have tourism out the wazoo just like Amsterdam and they could balance the budget with the taxes they can collect. Personally I hope it passes.
    Its way better for you than alcohol and its less toxic than cigarettes and its great for numerous medical conditions.
    Stupid Texas can’t even get casino’s with these freaking Baptists in this state.

  91. confloyd
    I understand your thinking and if it’s right for you and your state, then it is a good thing.

    I don’t believe that Calif will be better off with Meg, so that’s why letting her in as governor is not on my agenda. Her priorities are similar to Raygun, and Raygun was like a plague to Calif.

  92. Loads of speculation over at HB over the alledged scandal involving the WH.

  95. ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — An Alaska judge on Wednesday granted a temporary restraining order stopping the state elections officials from handing out names of write-in candidates at polling places.

    The ruling is a setback for the campaign of incumbent U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who was defeated in the August GOP primary by tea party favorite Joe Miller and is mounting a write-in campaign. Former Sitka Mayor Scott McAdams is the Democrat in the race.

    Anchorage Superior Court Judge Frank A. Pfiffner said the division was in clear violation of an administrative regulation.

    The regulation reads, “Information regarding a write-in candidate may not be discussed, exhibited, or provided at the polling place, or within 200 feet of any entrance to the polling place.”

  96. Loads of speculation over at HB over the alledged scandal involving the WH…

    —–

    What did I miss, what new scandal is going on now?
    I went to HB and just found tons of ground reports.

  97. I’ve read that the WH is trying to keep the lid on a huge scandal….that why his remark about scooping the poop was weird.

  98. Rush Limbaugh can go F himself. Thank you Admin for taking him down a notch.

    When you hear Rush’s disciples tell the story of 2008, you’d think Rush and they are the ones responsible for the entire PUMA movement. So many times I’ve heard his disciples say — “You don’t even have any legitimate anger at the Democratic Party. Hillary had lost the primary, Obama had won, the only reason she won any of the races that she did is because we Republicans were voting for her in Operation Chaos.”

    Well, no! First of all, let’s look at the timeline. This is where you guys get the story wrong from the gate. Operation Chaos did not start till late February/early March 2008. The caucus fraud however, the catalyst for why Hillary voters were so mad (eventually crystallized in the R-ByLaw-C Meeting of May 2008) — the caucus fraud occurred in mid February 2008. Before Operation Chaos. So no Rush, your Operation Chaos had nothing do with it. Hillary supporters were angry before you even got involved. So stop trying to take credit for what people of conscience were already speaking up against, while you guys were too busy playing your childish games.

    Second, don’t think that you didn’t have a hand in getting Obama to where he is today. Heck, in some ways, you are even more culpable, because while one could argue that Democrats were just supporting Democrats, Republicans had a whole other logos going on. Note the following:

    1) First, Republicans lowered the bar for Obama so much by electing Bush II. They made it so, by electing Bush, that any ole idiot could be elected President. I would venture that if Republicans hadn’t elected Bush, then I doubt the country would have been “ready” for such a moron like Obama. So strike one against the Republicans.

    2) Then, it was the Republicans’ years and years of Clinton Derangment syndrome that gave the Obama campaign plenty of Republican delusion to hurl against Hillary and Bill Clinton during the primaries. In fact, the Obama campaign did employ many Republican talking points in their attacks against Hillary. So I would again remind Republicans when they say “Hillary would have been better, why are we stuck with Obama, waaah!”, that it was your decades old psychosis regarding the Clintons that gave Obama the “ammo” against the Clintons. Perhaps if you had not introduced such crazy badinage about the Clintons (and I’m being generous here) into the national zeitgeist, Obama would not have had the fodder that he did during the primaries. When Hillary could have stopped him, it was your decades of stale attacks with which Obama was able to keep propping himself up.

    3) Finally, your indolence when it came to McCain is embarrassing. Republicans (sensible ones anyway) should have known by late 2008 that Obama would be a problem for this country, and that McCain was the last line available at the time against Obama. But no, instead of being out there helping McCain, what did they do? Tuck their tails and stayed home whining. Get out of here with that shit! As far as I’m concerned, the people who did that shouldn’t even be allowed to complain; and if they happen to be Republicans, then they are doubly guilty for letting who-knows-what get in the way of doing what was right, because as Republicans it should have been easier for them to vote for Republicans than expecting the rest of us to pick up the slack. And yet, where was the Republicans’ sense of patriotic duty back then? (You know, the thing that is supposed to transcend party lines?) Nowhere! They decided it was better to hold on to some petty sense of “McCain’s not as batshit conservative as we want him to be so we’re going to take our ball and go home”, and in the process, let the country down. Shameful.

    I get the alliance Admin has suggested, and I also support it on the basis of the cold logic that Admin explained. Republicans however also need to realize that this mess is just as much (if not more) of their making, as it is anybody else.

  99. A taste of what confloyd and Hillbuzz were talking about:

    Just tell me about this scandal. (Leans back, folds arms across chest. Looks outside – then back to me) Ok then – I’ll point your nose in the right direction. Enough people are sniffing in the same garbage pile anyways, including the Times. Though I suspect they are burying it at the moment, or trying to. They are still heavily invested in Obama, but that may change soon… Go back to Chicago. That is the key. There is other crap around the White House, other things that could trip them up, but Chicago is where the real heavy deal is that could bring the administration down. Go back and review Blagojevich. Go back and review Rezko, Barton, Stern, Giordano, Carothers, Jarret. It’s one and the same. It’s all connected, and it’s big. And people know. The White House is -expletive- itself over this stuff. Pelosi has it. Clintons have it – more of it than they had in 2008.>/b>

    So today, Angle sent Behar flowers, with a note thanking Behar for helping her raise $150,000 online yesterday.

    So what was Behar’s gracious response? “I’d like to point out that those flowers were picked by illegal immigrants,” she tartly said. “And they’re not voting for you, bitch.”

    (One would hope they’re not voting at all, actually.)

    And when Barbara Walters told Behar she shouldn’t be saying that anyone was going to be in Hell, Behar responded with another logical tour de force, “I don’t believe in Hell. And I don’t believe she’s going there.”

    “She [Angle] could have taken that $500 [Behar’s guess for the cost of the flowers] and maybe had some sensitivity training with it. … Don’t send me flowers, Sharron. Put your money where your mouth is,” Behar said.

    Who wants to bet that Harry Reid campaign staffers are already calling up Behar and begging her to stop being Angle’s best fundraiser?

  107. Admin – you are so very good. Thanks for the job you do.

    Regarding Limbaugh. I was working outside today, as I often do, and was listening to him on the radio – due in part to Admin’s post. As he was speaking about Operation Reverse Chaos, he was his typical BS Artist self. Although I will say sometimes Limbaugh points out some very funny things (ie – the John Stewart Rally 3 days before the election pulls all the “Community Organizer” types off the streets and sends them to DC while the Tea Party folks are involved in GOTV actions back home.) Anyway, and I am sure the transcript will be available tomorrow (not there yet, I looked) he commented about how unfairly HRC had been treated during the Primaries (cry me a river you gasbag.) Then he said something that nearly knocked me off my ladder. He said something to the effect that “SOME News organizations EVEN DARED TO SAY things like ‘WHO in America wants to watch Hillary ‘grow old’ before their eyes!” The reason I was SHOCKED at this is because I remembered it WAS RUSH LIMBAUGH HIMSELF who had made that COMPLETELY MISOGYNISTIC COMMENT back during the campaign. I heard it myself. So, I looked it up to make sure I was not “misremembering.: Voila:

    Brown did not make the comment that was overheard with regards to Meg Whitman being called a “whore”, but he was heard indicating his approval and that he was “going to use it” against her. That’s the truth, so it obvious that he didn’t see anything wrong with saying it. I can’t pretend to know what his actual thoughts were about using the word, but his conversation that was caught on tape did not put him in the best possible light.

    ==========================

    I read a story on the net today that seems to answer the Limbaugh statement about Democrats attending a rally three days before the election and how it took these people away from GOTV efforts. The story indicated that hardcore Democrats would not be attending the rally, and would be out trolling for votes (my words). I have to wonder how many cemeteries they’ll be visiting in to find these voters.

  110. nobama – Cemeteries are SO OLD FASHIONED! Who needs them at all when the voting machines and the Justice Department are in the Pocket of the Dems and the Unions!

  111. Here comes the pollsters shift……they are getting in line for next week.

    PPP : Dem interest not picking up enough… (really, ya think)

    One of the biggest hopes for Democrats heading toward election day has been that the party’s voters will get more engaged as the election comes closer, helping to mitigate its losses. A PPP analysis of 9 states where we’ve polled in October and also conducted a survey in August or September finds that the likely electorate for this fall is trending more Democratic- but not nearly to the extent the party needs.

    On average in those places we’re looking at a likely voter pool that’s about 1.5 points more Democratic than a month or two ago. That’s certainly better than no progress but it’s not enough to make the difference in a particularly large number of races.

    In 2 of the 9 states Democrats have seen a game changing increase in engagement. We’ve seen a 7 point Democratic shift in the likely electorate in West Virginia since mid-September and that’s a big part of why we had John Raese ahead then and have Joe Manchin ahead now. When Manchin was viewed as a shoo in there didn’t seem to be much of a sense of urgency from Democrats about voting. When the race started being perceived as a toss up that changed quite a bit.

    The other state where there’s been a big rise in Democratic vote likelihood is Pennsylvania, where there’s been a 5 point shift from mid-August. Joe Sestak and Dan Onorato may lose anyway but their races are now looking markedly more competitive than they did over the summer, thanks mostly to the Democratic awakening.

    In a couple of other key states though Democrats aren’t showing any increased interest and in some cases could even be sliding backward. The likely electorate in Illinois in August was Obama +9 and when we polled there last weekend it was still Obama +9. Usually for a Republican to win in a blue state like Illinois they would need a massive advantage with independents and to win over a fair number of Democrats. Mark Kirk and Bill Brady are doing neither of those things but still in a position to win because of what’s likely to be a massive drop in Democratic turnout in the state.

    Another place where the enthusiasm gap could cost Democrats dearly is Florida. In August we saw a McCain +3 electorate there, right around the time of the Senate primary, while we’ve now seen that slide to McCain +7 in a state that Obama won by 3 points. If Rick Scott wins it’s not going to be because he won over 2008 Obama voters- because he’s not doing that- but because those Democratic leaners stayed home in such large numbers that it allowed him to eak out a narrow victory.

    ———

    Watch it nomobama, or I will take away your Carley vote. 😉

    I did hear those comments on Fox about how Brown wanted to use the Whore comment too, but come on… they were talking about how Meg was trying to gain support by wooing the police union.
    Somehow, thinking that using the comment ‘Whore’ would be beneficial to him, doesn’t fit with his character, nor make sense.

    Would he think calling her a whore in one of his ads would be good, or calling her that name on tv or in a rally was a way to win votes?

    I don’t buy the Fox spin.

  113. did not put him in the best possible light.

    ——–
    I do agree that he should have said something against that comment, right there and then………..I also heard the comment might have been made by his wife, not sure who actually made it.

    Honestly, I have used some pretty awful words against Obama…

  114. And then he blew it and said when he was called on it that the word was just not that bad (and not at all equivalent to something like the n-word, which insults MEN) and nothing to for the ladies to get all fizzy over.

    Either that shit matters or not. And I prioritize it above anything else anymore, because I am sick and tired. Yes, I’ve used awful words against Obama as well, like “butt-ugly, jug-eared, brick-stupid corrupt son of a bitch.” But the n-word? No. No “99 Problems but a Cullid Ain’t One.”

  115. ” … but come on… they were talking about how Meg was trying to gain support by wooing the police union.”

    Wow, you mean she was politicking? And here I thought being a whore meant having sex for money. Who knew it really meant talking to the police union.

    Is “slut” the proper term for looking for an endorsement from the firefighters? Perhaps “tramp” actually means “shaking hands with the president of the auto worker’s union.”

    Please connect the dots between looking for a political endorsement — which all politicians do if they want to win — and having sex for money.

    And don’t go all “it’s a metaphor” on me, either. If you don’t call someone an n-word if they are being “lazy, uppity, and shiftless,” then you don’t excuse using the w-word as a metaphorical insult either.

  116. Janis,

    Valid points across the board. Brown liked the whore angle, even opined that he thought it was appropriate enough to want to use it moving forward (or is that leaning forward?). Sounds like the “M” word to me.

  117. I don’t know what to think about the Whitman/Brown matter. As for Carly and Barbara, Boxer was quite a backstabber when it came to Hillary, and Fiorina has that Hillary connection too (one I’d rather not repeat publicly, but it’s enough for me to at least hear Fiorina out). So I can get if some Californians want to vote for Carly. Go for it, I say. But as for Whitman and Brown, it’s a tough one.

    I was in Northern California/Sacramento earlier in the year (summertime) and while having the radio on in the car, one of Meg’s ads came on the air. I had mostly tuned it out, but then she said something that stood out. It was something along the lines of “if they keep breaking the rules, I think they should go to jail. What do you think? Let me know at meg2010 dot com.” Now, I can’t be sure what she was talking about exactly, as I said I had tuned the ad out, but I remember thinking “Why is she talking about sending people to JAIL in a campaign ad? Who the heck talks about JAIL?? JAIL, really??” I just remember thinking it was kinda odd.

    Then of course, there is Jerry Brown. He’s been making misogynist comments for years. Remember Hillary’s “I guess I could have stayed home and baked cookies” remark from the 1992 campaign?? Though the media got it wrong and painted it as an attack against stay at home moms, Hillary’s comments were actually a response to bogus accusations by Jerry Brown’s campaign about why was she involved in Arkansas politics. Because, you know, a woman can’t be involved in politics. :rolleyes: It’s not surprising then that Brown would fall back on more of the same.

    Californians face a tough decision in terms of their governor. Not an easy task in the least.

    ‘Obama unlikely to last his first term’

    A US analyst says US President Barack Obama is unlikely to end his first term as there are serious efforts by American officials to remove him [now] due to his incompetence.

    To Obama, those words sting like a bee… Just the fact these words are out there will be enough reason for him to double the dose of his anti-depressants. Then pretend nothing wrong here, everything is alright.

  119. Latest on Caprio:

    Although, I smell and Axelrod and a Kenyan all over these results.

    As of this morning, Caprio is in 3rd place. Thats right! Chafee is of course in first place, the Republican in second, and Caprio a distant third… Chafee 38% Robitaille 28% Caprio 25%

    Results by Quest Research poll. I’ve never heard of this polling outfit- and never seen or heard of the man interviewed on nbc Ch10 as the presumed owner.

    Quest Research polling began the explanation of the quick change of the results by saying: “Well, there are alot of undecideds out there.” Giving him loads of room for error. The percentage for margin of error was never made visible. [could be 10%?]

    The Questions last night to Caprio by a Ch 10 news reporter were pointed. For example: “Do you now regret making the comment telling the president to “shove it”?

    Obama and Axelrod are playing mind games with the RI public. It needs to be stopped or neutralized asap in only the way BC knows how to do.
