I don’t have much use for “Fart Blossom”, nor O’ Reilly, but in this instance Rove is correct. Obama has never defeated a candidate- he has always eliminated the candidate. Against Jack Ryan for the Illinois Senate, the Tribune opened a sealed divorce record; he won by default. In the case of John McCain, the manufactured securities meltdown caused him to ‘suspend’ his campaign to get back to the Senate. It never got back on track. Obama won again by default. Obama eliminates the competition, he doesn’t defeat them with his ideas or vision.
Look what they did and are doing to Sarah Palin. Look at Newsweek’s photo and hit piece on Michele Bachmann. Rick Perry is already being labeled a Christian. Only Romney seems to escape the scorn. For now. After the nomination is when the sharp knives come out- when Mormonism is trashed and fictionalized truth becomes reality; polygamy is used to alienate republicans. “Gay marriage is good- polygamy is bad.”
I am but one, yet to this day countless others lead lives even more destitute and enslaved than mine ever was. Perhaps my story is the exception because I escaped, at great risk, polygamy’s conjugal chains; and that my husband is the Mormon Church’s Prophet and Leader, Brigham Young, and I am his 19th and final, wife. -From The 19th Wife, page 6
Saul Alinsky would say: “The first step in community organization is community disorganization.” Therefore, the first step for organizing the Nation is disorganizing the Nation. In that, he’s doing a fine job.
For the republican nominee to have a chance, whomever it is, the TEA party better hold their rallies outside the doors of the news media so they can’t be ignored. Journalists need to be confronted and their activities disrupted. Advertisers need to be put on notice, as well. You just can’t advertize with Communists. Look how well that went for Air America.
The analogy to Buchanan is interesting, tho, in that the TEA party is being portrayed as a bunch of revolutionaries. 150 years after The War of the Northern Aggression, a Russian has been predicting the demise of the Union. He just might be on to something. Congressional Districts are re-mapped and that won’t change until 2022. It’s time to vote with your feet if you’re in a State like Illinois.
After years of representation by the likes of Danny K. Davis and Dick Durbin it’s time to make my vote count.
Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say “what should be the reward of such sacrifices?” Bid us and our posterity bow the knee, supplicate the friendship and plough, and sow, and reap, to glut the avarice of the men who have let loose on us the dogs of war to riot in our blood and hunt us from the face of the earth? If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom — go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!
