Obama Steps In It

  • Sen. Barack Obama, circling through Iowa on Sunday before returning here on Day 2 of his presidential launch, challenged his Democratic rivals to lay out specifics for withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq and declared that the thousands of lives lost so far in the war had been "wasted."

    The senator from Illinois later said he regretted his choice of words, telling an interviewer that he meant the troops' sacrifices "have not been honored" by an adequate policy.

Evidently, Barack Obama has gone over to the Howard Dean wing of the democratic party. Appealing to the "Dean-iacs" will get you a bunch of crazy money early and a boost in the left wing polls and websites. Unfortunately, this isn't going to win you a national nomination and certainly isn't going to win you the center moderates of either party. And capturing the center is what's going to win the race in 2008.

We hate to see conspiracies where there isn't one, but Obama is coming off as a left wing whacko that is going to make Hillary look like a moderate. Our prediction - Flash in the pan.

Hillary, like Bill, is a Conservative Deomcrat. Similar to Truman or LBJ. Says what she has to say and does what she has to do.

Of course..his true colors will come out. He hates white people and he has a white mama. His pappy never wanted anything to do with him and all he talks about are his african roots.

He's part of the problem, not part of the solution.

Barack has you running scared. The fact that you give him so much play on this blog shows that either,
1. you see him as the front runner for the democrats, and therefore a threat to your conservative politics

or

2. you see him as a black american, and that somehow threatens you.

I thought this was a blog about the CPD, not a blog about the republican party.

Very disappointing.

I don't care what color he is, he is still a Muslim. Muslims historically have killed Christians. United States was founded by persecuted Christians. Yes we have freedom of religion here, because Christians and Jews don't behead you for a difference of opinion, we just think you're all going to hell. He can say he's not a Muslim all he wants, but he hasn't changed his name to reflect it.

One more thing about Mr Obama, believe it or not everyone in high school and college did not do dope. Some of us actually had to suffer through the hardships of our teenage years and the stresses associated with it, without being sedated. Complete lack of character and strength, this is a job opening for the world's most powerful man.. do we really want a guy who did dope and then later in life was stupid enough to admit it in writing ???

Barack a 'black american'. Please, when he ran against Bobby 'the dog ass' Rush the black community said he wasn't black enough. He was an Uncle Tom. Now he's a black American.
This guy has no experience, but he makes us feel so good with all his smooth words. Words dont get the job done lemmings.

And finally to the libral who doesn't like these conservative view points. Did you ever hear of the 1st amendment. If you dont like it start your own libral crap web site or move to China. You guys hate the fact that your monopoly over the media has ended. You can no longer have the sole voice of your fucked up interpetation of history. You guys had a great run. Josef Goebbels ( Nazi propaganda minister)would be proud of you.

The person Obama has to fear most right now is Hillary Clinton. If the Clinton administration has taught us anything it is the art of the politics of presonal destruction. Deep down inside evry democrat knows in their heart that she is un-electable. If it comes down to Barak vs. Hillary i'm voting for her. After all how funny would it be to see Hillary making a speech from the oval office at the same desk her husband sat at while getting a hummer from an unpaid intern? I mean c'mon?

Barack's answer to his comment about "wasted" lives lost, was typical of his double speak. He DID NOT apologize, he stated many people "misconstrue" things that are said during campaigns....How arrogant can you get? Wait, he said much the same thing when he was questioned about his recent real estate purchase. The public and the media let these things slide, comments and back room dealings that speak of someone's character who is seeking the highest office in this country should be foremost in the news. I can guarantee if "Dubya" had said anything like that, the public and media would be all over it!
Double standard?

“Appealing to the Dean-iacs will get you a bunch of crazy money early and a boost in the left-wing polls and websites” –SCC

By “left wing” polls do you refer to following: USA Today/Gallup, CBS, AP-Ipsos, Gallup, Fox/Opinion Dynamics, Newsweek, NBC/Wall Street Journal, LA Times/Bloomberg, and Pew? Interesting. You have such a unique perspective on things SCC.

Like any politician in America’s highly dysfunctional electoral system, Obama carefully gauges public opinion utilizing an array of highly respected polling organizations (noted above) then trims his sails for a political course somewhere between the public’s interests and its clearly expressed desires and the priorities of the ruling class—conventionally recognized as corporations.

Well let’s briefly examine just what public sentiments Barockstar is responding to, or at the very least attempting to convey that impression.

According to the latest AP-Ipsos poll in answer to the question: “generally speaking, would you say things in this country are heading in the right direction, or are they off on the wrong track?”, Americans responded as follows,

Right track = 28% /Wrong track = 68% / Unsure = 4%.

According to the latest CNN Poll, 77% of Americans believe that there should be significant changes in US policy in Iraq. The latest batch of polls--again from the bastions of liberalism noted above--show Bush’s approval ratings running at an average of about 35%.

In answer to this question from the CBS News Poll: “Which comes closer to your opinion? Iran is a threat to the United States that requires military action now. Iran is a threat that can be contained with diplomacy now. OR Iran is not a threat to the United States at this time.” Americans responded as follows,

Military action now = 21% / Diplomacy now = 57% /Not a threat = 14% /Unsure = 8%.

These opinions by the way are consistent with that of foreign policy specialists across the political spectrum. Now tell me something SCC, who is out of step here? Is it the “Deaniacs” (AKA the public), the Team Bush Chicken Hawks who've gotten us into this mess in the first place, or the “pragmatists” such as Barockstar and Hillary—who are both to the right of public opinion on a host of critical issues? Surely even you now recognize that the American people—to say nothing of the Iraqis—support troop withdrawal.

Of course the lives of American troops have been wasted SCC. That’s what you do with cannon fodder.

Stay safe.

Just like a Democrat always sticking your nose in someone"s business. SSC sends HIS TIME to write HIS BLOG and he can express his views if he wishes. I got an idea start yourself a blog and see how many people you can trick into believing OBAMA would make a good president. Thank God the liberals have not curtailed all our freedoms. I'am sure Congress will now push for a non-binding resolution to make it illegal to have views other then liberal ones. America where are you headed? we must stop this freefall.

Obama IS the front runner. Get over it, repubs. Bush has soured the waters on a republican candidate sitting in the White House in 2008. Even a lot of you repubs here on this post are sorry you voted twice for what can best be descibed as "empty tuna can" politics in the White House for the past 7 years. Bush was, and is, a moron of privilege. Get comfortable with photos and news clips of Obama. You're going to see a whole lot more of that man, like him or not. And there are probably more than enough younger voters who are likely to register and come out to the polls to cancel a whole lot of your votes out! Obama is an electrifying presence in politics, and he's running well past SCC's predicted "flash in the pan" time frame. Jeez. A man of color in the White House. Who would have believed it could happen in my lifetime?
