In 2012 Obama will have to run on his record (for the first time ever, he has one)


Hope is fading fast.

Expect to see lots of variations of this theme:

    Too bad Reid bought that election out from under Sharron Angle.

    The 2008 Democratic superdelegates put in motion a GOP takeover for 2010 and 2012. If the GOP were a little more competent, the voters would have delivered in 2010 both houses of congress to the Republicans. Now we know why the Democrats didn’t care to stay in power: both parties have the same owners.

      Its going to get worse, at least as far as the senate goes. The GOP only has to defend 10 seats in 2012. The Dems have to defend I think 23.

      And by their actions in 2008 fawning over, not vetting, and generally behaving as campaign staff for Obama, the media blew their cover. Yeah, they got him in, but at great cost to their credibility. Some of us knew for a long time that the corporate media was a crock, but most non-politically-active voters did not realize how corrupt they really are.

      They put all their cards on the table with Obama, and with their reaction to Hillary, to the tea parties, to ACORN, to Palin, etc. They lost all shred of credibility. With their cover blown, they are going to find it very hard to drive public opinion like they did in the past. It won’t matter whether they are doing it in service of the corporate Dems or the cocktail party Republicans – the grassroots on both sides of the spectrum will laugh at them.

      It’s going to be interesting. Me, I’d like to see both crony corporate parties get dismantled, and I’ll be quietly rooting for whoever helps do that – even if it’s someone I wouldn’t necessarily vote for.

      This is one of my pet peeves about 2010. Republicans had a net gain of about 670 seats in state governments. Granted, it hs little effect on national politics, but it’s something. In the House, Republicans won 56% all seats. In the Senate, they won 65% of the seats up for an election. Due to the fact that Democrats only had to defend about 10 seats to keep a majority, it was a nearly impossible bar for the Republicans to reach for a simple majority.

      Next year, over 20 Democratic Seante seats will be up for elections and the Republicans only have to turn 4.

    Palin visits Iowa

    Alaska Republican Sarah Palin and her husband, Todd, will visit Pella Tuesday for the premiere of a new documentary about her life — arriving in the politics-central state of Iowa the same day as Democratic President Barack Obama.

    I think she may get some attention in Iowa.

    “So Michele Bachmann will announce for presi…OHMYGODSARAHPALIN,” GOP political operative Tim Albrecht, 33, of West Des Moines tweeted today.

    The timing of Tuesday’s visit, sandwiched with two other big Iowa political events, is deliberate, said longtime GOP campaign strategist Robert Haus.

    “Her timing is impeccable,” said Haus, 50, of Urbandale. “Clearly she has not ruled out a run for president.”

    The spin about her chances in Iowa.

    Christopher Rants, who helped lead Romney’s Iowa campaign four years ago, said so many Republicans in Iowa and elsewhere dislike Palin that it would be difficult for her to be a successful presidential candidate.

    vs the truth.

    Haus disagreed, saying Palin could win. “We’re not going to beat President Obama with a wallflower,” he said.

    Gotta buy more stock in Orville Reddenbacher.

        LMAO! Gawd, for all my disagreements with her, the lady does make me smile!

          I loved that line. 😀 I just read Breitbart’s new book, Righteous Indignation (so sue me – he’s a deliberate provocateur and often an asshat, but I find him and his rise interesting. I’m perfectly capable of reading and gleaning info without being mindlessly “brainwashed”, thanks.) Anyway, he talked about the whole conservative woman thing.

          He went to dozens and dozens of teaparty events around the country, and said that one of the untold stories is that it was largely female driven. The women were the ones in charge, the ones organizing, the ones calling the shots. Very few local grassroots gatherings or rallies were run by men. Yeah there were a lot of women onstage, but the real story was the preponderance of women behind the scenes.

          The Left had better wake the fuck up. Because to a politically on-the-fence, non-activist voting woman, the grassroots Right is sure looking like the place that values strong, capable, independent women, as opposed to the limited and carefully scripted role the Left is affording them.

          You betcha.

          Here’s another little observation that more grassroots voters notice than people know, re the Tea Party people as so-called “raycists”:

          I watched several Netroots Nation annual meeting videos on their website, with several wide shots of large group rooms….

          Guess what: Most of the attendees were WHITE. One token panel full of Black women, but the attendees were almost all white.

    While I have a lot of policy disagreements with Sarah Palin, she seems like the only potential candidate that might take an axe to the entrenched DC establishment if she were to win. For that reason alone, she gets my support if she chooses to run.

    I think we’ve seen enough to know that until that DC establishment can be shaken up well, we will never get our country back. Dem, GOP are all the same now. We first need a revolution. Then we can fight about the policies we want enacted. The grass roots in this country are a lot more in agreement than most would believe.

    Wow. I don’t agree with everything in that first video, but it didn’t matter because I was enjoying the music too much. And that is how effective advertising works. 🙂
