Power-hungry Babies

No, I’m not talking about a television series, nor an idea for a Super-bowl commercial. I’m talking about Democrats.

Part of me is happy to see that party tearing itself apart, and not for idealogical reasons, but just your basic greedy, power-starved selfish evilness.

On the other hand, it’s painful to watch.

Still unhappy with the current state of affairs, an activist in Florida tried to take the problem back into the courts again, and was quickly (and surprisingly) swatted away. Evidently their anxious to pull an Al Gore and take it to the Supreme Court. I’ve got to say, I don’t see how the courts have ANY jurisdiction on Party politics, and worse yet, how people think they can stage an 11th hour …


How Quickly Can Obama Get Ready?

In Friday’s Wall Street Journal, Kimberly Strassel takes a careful look at the events around the Obama campaign and provides a keen analysis of his comments,  actions, and the attempts by his campaign and supporters to shore up his mistakes.

It’s apparent that BO is in need of help along the way.  But does he want that help?

Cyborg ObamaThe Illinois Senator has carried out a campaign where much of the important content, including clear readings of his positions and intentions as President, have been largely overlooked in the midst of controversy after controversy, including reviews of questionable friendships and meaningless bickering with Senator Clinton about anything they can think of.  It is incredibly amazing that both their campaigns sank so low as to make race …


Various Observations and Musings

Ah, it’s back to one of my favorite pastimes…blogging for the Conservative Reader.  Since my last installment, several interesting things have happened:

Politics

For whatever reason, Senator Clinton refuses to concede the nomination.  Either she and Bill cannot conceive of the fact that reasonable people would not choose them to be their standard-bearer, or somehow, some way, she’s convinced that Senator Obama will self-destruct.  Newsflash for Hillary:  If Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Obama’s complete inability to state categorically how he’s going to “restore hope” to America hasn’t derailed the Obama train, nothing will.  Besides, the Clintons, despite their personal drama, are boring.

Second, Kimberly Strassel has a great op-ed in today’s Wall Street Journal.  I could give the synopsis here, but I’d rather you …


Party Members: Work Together

We’ve kept it pretty loose here at TCR with regard to the continued havoc being wrought by Hillary Clinton against her party. Every day, the lack of her stepping down extends further and further the demise of Democrats and Obama’s chance to manipulate his way into high office.

Amazingly enough, however, the party faithful are undeterred and completely convinced that their nominee is the right person for this job. It is odd to see serious grownup people behave at a level of maturity that doesn’t seem to align with how those people deal with everything else in their lives.

I wish I were talking only about Democrats.

I would contend that Barack Obama and John McCain are not the best representatives of their parties.

Democrats …

Ann Coulter says it well, here:

Well, it looks like it’s the end of the road for Hillary. Time for her to pack up her pantsuits and go back to – wherever it is she’s pretending to be living these days. Now we just have to get rid of the other two. Perhaps if I endorse Obama

This week, Bill Clinton lost his second presidential election for a protege.

Ronald Reagan was so popular, he not only won a 49-state landslide re-election for himself, but he also won a symbolic third term


Lincoln-Douglas / Santos-Vinick

So, Hillary this week graciously offered to debate Barack mano a mano.  No moderator.

Set their own rules.  Ask each other questions and answer them.

Millions of people across the country would be THRILLED to have a debate without moderators.

But can we really recreate the pure raw power of the Santos-Vinick debate (from the final season of West Wing)?  Of course, that was a Democrat against a Republican.

And don’t even imagine it could be anything like Lincoln-Douglas.    I can’t imagine that level of genteel.

Although it sounds wonderful, we probably all know the problem here.  Clinton’s calling Obama out knowing full well that Obama isn’t going to bite.  Obama has nothing to offer if put into an open debate… his whole campaign is …


Obama In An Alternate Universe…

The following is a work of fiction and political satire. None of this is true. However, if you have a sensitive stomach, or are a Liberal, or just don’t get most jokes you hear, Space Clusteryou may want to avoid reading this piece. But you are welcome to anyhow.

Barack Obama, in an unprecedented sweep of all Democratic Party state caucuses and primaries thus far, handily beat the undeterred Hillary Clinton in Pennsylvania Tuesday. Said Clinton “Pennsylvanians are a bunch of idiots!”. Clinton’s husband was seen consoling his wife and asked if the media would kindly give Hillary some time to recover.

Obama spoke clearly and concisely this morning about his vision for tax reform and job stimulus to help ensure that all could share in


The balance act

Limbaugh likes to say on his radio program, that he IS balance for the liberal press. And in many ways, he’s quite right. So an interesting angle on this shows up today in an article by John Harris and Jim Vandiehei at The Politico:

My, oh my, but weren’t those fellows from ABC News rude to Barack Obama at this week’s presidential debate.

Nothing but petty, process-oriented questions, asked in a prosecutorial tone, about the Democratic front-runner’s personal associations and his electability. Where was the substance? Where was the balance?

Where indeed. Hillary Rodham Clinton and her aides have been complaining for months about imbalance in news coverage. For the most part, the reaction to her from the political-media commentariat has been: Stop whining.

That’s


This Week’s Surprise(s)

  • Obama is still close to Clinton in the polls in Pennsylvania.
  • Hillary steps up and admits she “said some things that weren’t in keeping with what I knew to be the case” about her trip to Bosnia in 1996.
  • Hillary also says “I may be a lot of things but I am not dumb” instantly losing the dumb vote. Or maybe acquiring it. Hard to tell.
  • Pope Benedict acknowledges sex abuse scandal “badly handled”.
  • Sharpe James, former mayor of Newark, NJ, is convicted by a Federal Jury of fraud and conspiracy. Reuters waited until the 7th paragraph to mention James was a Democrat.
  • Obama is wearing a flag pin again.  I’d feel better if he got a flag tattoo. ————— No I wouldn’t.
  • Florida wants

Obama Can’t Shake His “Bitter” Remarks

Someone this weekend (I can’t recall who) said that Obama lacks the experience to make a run for President at this point in his career, and perhaps he has stepped into too big a pile of doo-doo to ever make a successful run now.

I didn’t give that as much thought until I saw that four days after this whole story about his comments regarding people in small towns (specifically ones with significant job losses) “bitter” about their plights and clinging to “guns or religion” came out, he is still trying to squirm his way around it.

Politics is simple.  If you can’t explain your way out of something in a couple of days, stop talking about it.  Unless of course you want the …
