In Powder Springs Georgia, when he was questioned about his “Kerry-isms” of late, Obama responded with, “people who say this haven’t been listening to me..” I have to agree with the beleaguered Senator on this one. The only difference in what he has said since this whole campaign season began has been to go from “hope and change” to “change and hope.” He hasn’t said anything else and I can prove it.. So would it be splitting hairs to classify that as a flip-flop?
Obama attributed his recent spate of criticism to “my friends on the left” and “some of the media..” That statement proves beyond a reasonable doubt how inexperienced he is because he hasn’t apparently picked up on the well-documented fact that they are both one in the same. I myself would have changed the word “some” to the word “all”..
Obama’s inexperience continues to be the primary focus when he says things like, “If I don’t agree with you on something, that it must be because I’m doing that politically..” Rest assured that this man does not pick his breakfast cereal or his socks without consulting a ream of polling data.. He then says, “I may just disagree with you..” May I make a few points in relation to those last six words?
You are a politician. If we “disagree”, you have the unique ability to reach into my pocket and take what I have rightfully earned and give it to those who specialize in sloth. You are a liberal politician so the possibility of that scenario transpiring is quite high.. If we “disagree”, you have the power to make the rights and privileges of the majority null and void based upon the whims of whichever miniscule special interest group that you wish to please today when they bawl that their “snivel rights” have been lacerated.. Without elaborating any further, our “disagreements” are therefore quite important to me and to a lot of other people as well.
The goofy liberals have become concerned that their “disagreements” with BHO/JKF, which are a relatively recent occurrence, if left unchecked, will quite probably increase appreciably as this campaign drags on. The liberals tend to get all giddy when a politician says things in public that they agree with. It happens so infrequently that they usually fall all over themselves and become true believers right on the spot. The gigantic coward wing of the left was immediately enthralled with Obama’s “stand” on the War in Iraq. They are becoming increasingly worried that his “stand” on the war is quickly becoming a “dance” and if they are surprised by that stark reality, they are thicker than I thought they were..
The article says Obama has heard criticisms from the Democrats relative to his loyalty and from Republicans who are accusing him of flip-flopping. Why would the Republicans want to get involved in this ridiculously girly liberal scratch fight?
From the Republican perspective, the more the liberal left pecks away at Obama, which in turn forces him to backpedal and grovel at their feet, the better. The kooks of the left can say anything they want to or about Obama without the “fear” that anyone else has of being miscast a “racist” for simply disagreeing. The “impartial” media, still getting all “tingly” over Obama, will then have to step in and simply stop broadcasting or covering any negative protests or complaints about the new flexibility of BHO/JFK.
The left has mastered the art of the “childish tantrum”. The Republicans should basically take a page from the “Clinton/Obama 2008 primary season” playbook. The entire time that Clinton and her “in-significant other” were constantly stubbing their political toes and consistently falling backwards, Obama said nothing to anyone who would listen and by standing still he miraculously managed to move forward. No Republican who isn’t out of their mind (that would make them a Democrat..) would think of voting for a liberal Democrat, so let the liberals hold their breath, stomp their feet and holler to their hearts content. Obama will then beg them for forgiveness, which can then be used to reinforce the reality of his hopelessly liberal provenance. The Republicans should force him to the left, not invite him into the center.
The angrier the left gets, the louder and less lucid they become. The louder they become, the more that he will have to say in order for the nut jobs to pipe down. The Republicans should let the liberals do their “dirty work” for them. The good news is that the left, with their allergy to soap, has this “dirty” part down pat, it is this “work” thing that may prove to be a little problematic..
So Obama alienates the middle as an elitist liberal, he angers the left by “shifting” on the War in Iraq and warrantless eavesdropping, (to name but a few..) and he reflexively repulses the right. He is even trying to placate everyone by saying that he favors both an individuals right to bear firearms and a government’s right to regulate them. With this recent turn of events, Obama should just pick John Edwards as his running mate and his miraculous transformation into John Kerry will be complete.
He believes in a tax code that is “more fair.” When a liberal talks about making anything “fair”, fairness never has anything to do with the end results.. He wants to pay teachers more. (Are you listening, NEA members?) He also believes (he says) that “government (isn’t) the solution to everything”, and he also believes in “personal responsibility” and “faith”. (Stop listening, liberals, start listening all of you non-committed voters..)
He has begun to talk with a “more nuanced rhetoric” as pertains to the War in Iraq. He is considering, “adjusting that timetable..” The “don’t draft me sissies” thought that they had a hero who would stand up for them. They did until it started looking like he might win.. Then it becomes time to “appeal to the center” which means, “ignore the psychotics of the left as much as you possibly can”..
The liberals are just a little taken aback by the knowledge that Obama’s “change” really ends up meaning that he should be free to “change” positions on the issues every hour or so, depending on who he is speaking to..
