Following Malcolm's Call - Barry In His Own Words


"And yet, even as I found myself following Malcolm's call..." about 2 minutes and 3 seconds into the video. I think this is proof positive that Obama has the Wright stuff.

Not to mention the beginning of the video where he says white people have been doing him without them even knowing it. Now where is the fun in that? And does Michelle know about his secret life? He's out of the closet now.

Even when he is trying to sound serious he is ridiculous

As Ed Driscoll (who pointed me to this clip) says:

Four years ago, when another Democratic Senator running for the White House demonstrated that he was, in his own way, equally far out of touch with middle class voters, he at least did so by not knowing what to order on a cheesesteak (also involving Pennsylvania, in a nice example of retroactive synchronicity), or in a Wendy's, which Mark Steyn so memorably described. Or by not understanding that the average guy doesn't fly off to another state for a weekend of windsurfing whenever the mood strikes.

Talk about a rookie mistake: Leave it to Obama to make John Kerry's Brahmin hauteur seem earnestly goofy in retrospect.

Kerry was just out of touch. Obama seems mean spirited and out of touch. That is going to leave a mark.

Still takin' the high road, M?

Might I suggest some basic propaganda texts to up your game a touch?

America is only about 18% rubes...and they already vote Republican.

Propaganda alphie is now citing direct quotes?

But I see you love Obama's style. Suppose some who are outside that 18% demographic get confused and start thinking you are talking about them?

I thought you wanted to win the election for your side alphie?

Well any way keep up the good work.

Come back soon. Ya heah.

For quite a while now it's been wrong for those on the right of center to cite the direct quotes of those on the left.

Get with it, Simon. It's a post-modern world. Those quotes are "just words". They mean whatever Mr. O wants them to mean, at any given moment.

It's not enough for a right wing candidate to hate the usual right wing targets(blacks, Jews, immigrants, educated people, etc.), they have to be for something, too.

What is McCain for?

A set of policies that has Bush's support at 28% and falling?

You got the rubes and the government teat suckers already (farmers, defense contractors, etc.), how y'all gonna get anyone else?

alphie,

You must have missed the change in environment:

1. Condi Rice is the highest ranking black in American Government so far. Preceded by Colin Powell. I never heard a racist peep from the right about that. I have heard them called Uncle Tom and Aunt Jemimah from the left. No racism there.

2. About 25% of Jews (traditionally the Orthodox) vote Republican. From what I have been tracking, if Obama is the candidate it will be 50% or more.

3. PA is full of immigrants. Goes back to well before the founding. Ever hear of Pennsylvania Dutch? And McCain's stance on the current batch of illegals is not unfriendly - compared to most of the rest of the party. It hurt him on the run up to the nomination. It will at least not be a big negative in the general.

4. Yes. Obama has a lock on limousine liberals. So he has the billionaire vote locked up. Can that Demographic swing an election?

5. Yes. Obama has a lock on educated guilty white liberals. Can that Demographic swing an election?

What is McCain for?

"We are Americans and we will never surrender, they will."

Sounds good to me and the rest of the Jacksonians.

Yes the Republican President is at 28% approval. A true low point.

The Democrat Congress has been fluctuating between 11% and 14%. I don't think that helps your cause.

BTW keep calling average voters rubes. Some of them who are not currently R voters might think you are talking about them.

Just the way Obamas words have been misinterpreted.

Condescension is not a winning attitude. Kerry tried it and lost. Obama is doubling down. Do you think that will help?
