Panic Sets In For Obama, Democrats

While premature to be calling the election, anything can happen between now and November, it is apparent the selection of Sarah Palin has so unnerved B HO that he has lost his message and failed to regain his stride.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution

"For a “change” candidate, Obama appears to be a man locked in time, unable to move past criticism, unable to move from the grip of the Democratic left, unable to adapt to the changed reality that the campaign is not the referendum on the war in Iraq or on the administration of George W. Bush that he’d envisioned."


"With Palin, the Washington outsider, the “third term” argument is plainly absurd. But Obama can’t let go, just as the lefties can’t let go of the Swiftboat Veterans for Truth defeat of Kerry. He can’t move on."

Maybe, when he was subjected to this undated interview with earlier this year, God didn't take kindly to his seeming to equate himself with the Almighty as he said,
"The prayer that I tell myself every night is a fairly simple one: I ask in the name of Jesus Christ that my sins are forgiven, that my family is protected and that I am an instrument of God's will. I'm constantly trying to align myself to what I think he calls on me to do. And sometimes you hear it strongly and sometimes that voice is more muted."

Seems to me, another well-known and less popular politician was castigated for claiming to pray and hear God's voice.

Will Obamessiah?

Or, will he just continue riding his tricycle around in circles?

What a difference a week makes. Panic you say? Who is down in the polls and who is dodging the debate? You get three guesses and the first two don't count.

Poor little rhubarb, not too smart are you?

Panic? Not hardly.

But, with McCain calling for a suspension and postponement of the debates until he, Obama, leaders from the House and Senate sitting down with President Bush to work out a solution to the current crisis and Obama demanding the campaign event continue, well, I guess we see who cares more about the country and the people than a show before the people.

Is Obama so self centered that he places his performance on TV above the good of the people? It sure looks like it.

But, you moonbats eat it up, don't you? Then again, when did you ever give a crap about the good of the country?

Now, go be a good little sheeple and lick Obama's boots some more.

John, time to suck it up, my friend. Why do you want the people of Mississippi to lose $5.5 million? Too late to cut & run, my friend. Or send Sarah in your place.

LewWaters said...

That's just like you, rhubarb, ignorant to the very end.

The senator with (understandably) one of the lowest actual-attendance rates at the Capitol in the last two years, and who has played little role in crafting legislation recently, suddenly needs to be nowhere but Washington -- exactly now?

The candidate whose strongest claim to office is his experience, mastery, and understanding of foreign policy, cannot handle a debate on that topic, against a rookie, when he has other things on his mind?

The candidate who wants to quash any suspicion that he is not quick enough, not vigorous enough, or not multi-tasking enough to handle a job that poses a new challenge every minute, is essentially asking for everyone to take things a little slower so he can concentrate?

The candidate whose first response to the financial crisis was to propose firing the head of the Securities and Exchange Commission, and whose second response was to run ads linking his opponent (hazily) to former Fannie Mae officials (before news came out that his own campaign manager was still on the Freddie Mac payroll), now wants us to believe that statesmanship and love of country govern his every move on this issue?

The most famously stoic candidate of recent times is willing to have it look as if he's running away from a confrontation while he's behind.

LewWaters said...

blah, blah, blah.

And, 143 days qualifies your boy for what, dog catcher?

Hardly running away to put he people ancountry first over a TV appearance.

Guess your boy is more concerned with how he looks than the good of the country.

LewWaters said...

Hey, rhubarb, have you checked Zogby lately?

"The very latest poll numbers from John Zogby put John McCain squarely ahead of Barack Obama at 46 percent to 44 percent, respectively.

McCain moved from three percentage points behind Obama to two points ahead of the democratic candidate in less than a week. One possible reason for the boost — McCain’s decision to forego politics as usual to focus on the current financial meltdown. The polling was conducted after McCain’s announcement that he would suspending his campaign.

Looks like citizens prefer a candidate who places them above a TV appearance after all.

An hour before he announced he would go to the debate, his Republican friends were saying, "The debate isn't important during this financial crisis," "We can move the debate to another day, because this is more important," "McCain is showing leadership and not going to an unnecessary event." However, now he decides to go and it's time for him to address the nation? Call me crazy, but isn't this the same damn thing the Democrats have been saying these past couple days when he "suspended" his campaign and wanted to postpone the debate? This man is delusional and crazy! America, please wake up! You want THIS guy to run our country? Let's get serious...this is not a time to play these stupid little games.
