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.
“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.
“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: 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
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.”
