"My Worst Nightmare, Obama Is A Milquetoast Candidate Who Doesn't Fight Back"

Not a very good week for Barack Obama. On the heels of losing to Hillary bigtime in Pennsylvania, he had to disavow his own pastor and mentor, Jeremiah Wright. This was followed by a plunge in his poll ratings. In fact the only positive note in the Obama campaign is that Ken Norton of THE KEN NORTON EFFECT has predicted that Obama will win big in both North Carolina and Indiana followed by Hillary dropping out of the race the next day. So despite the fact that Ken Norton predictions are 100% consistent, the DUmmies are still worried about their beloved Obamassiah as you can see in this THREAD titled, "My Worst Nightmare, Obama Is A Milquetoast Candidate Who Doesn't Fight Back." Maybe the DUmmies should have figured out that Obama was a less than ideal candidate before having annointed him as the Chosen One. The fact is Obama has had very smooth political sailing until recently. His Senate seat was basically handed to him on a silver platter and before he even entered the Senate was being hailed as the next Democrat presidential nominee. Unfortunately for Obama he is now facing the "Take No Prisoners" Clintons and his campaign is now struggling to win even one more primary. So let us now watch the DUmmies lose their nerve over their standard bearer in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, enjoying the sight of sweating DUmmies, is in the [brackets]:

My Worst Nightmare, Obama Is A Milquetoast Candidate Who Doesn't Fight Back

[A little late in the day to be worrying about that.]

I supported Joe Biden. When he was out, left with Edwards, Hillary or Obama, I was not happy.

[Why were you the first DUmmie in a thousand generations of DUmmies to support Joe Biden?]

Edwards' message just wouldn't work. The attitude and pluck of a fighter is essential but the rhetoric was just not workable in today's reality.

[Those cucumber cream facials at the Pink Sapphire Spa weren't exactly helpful either.]

Hillary was an absolute no-go. I know too well how she and her husband have enable the NeoCons from the beginning of their political careers and profited from them.

[NeoCons sounds so much better than the J-word.]

Obama at least had a message of Hope and drawing people together. I liked he appealed to our better natures. I liked he really believes in grassroots organizing and rebuilding the party infrastructure in all 50 states after the Clintons intentionally allowed it to crumble.

[I also like how be believed in rebuilding his finances with the help of Tony Rezko.]

But from the outset, my main concern with Obama was the feeling he wasn't a fighter. Not in the sense of using Edwards' rhetoric. But that he just wasn't willing to rumble. To deliver a barbed dig at his opponent. One that would get the media's attention. I worried he'd be weak in controlling the media.

[The Elmer FUdd of politics.]

Now Obama essentially has the nomination locked up because of the planning his campaign did before votes was cast. And the positive Media he got initially as the Mediawhores looked for a horserace. Sadly, it seems Obama does turn out to be unable or unwilling to fight. Hillary, the GOP and Mediawhores have managed to brand him as an elitist. A pansy.

[The Obamassiah.]

And his poll numbers are beginning to crumble. Even in North Carolina. The Primary is still going on, he has an opponent and he is simply allowing her to dominate. To define him. How Hillary became Norma Rae doesn't matter. What matters is, Obama is not effectively countering it.

[Don't worry about North Carolina. Ken Norton has PREDICTED that Obama will win that state by 15 points.]

Obama has not been in control of a news cycle in over a month. He was supposed to have a team ready to deal with Swiftboating. Well, he was Swiftboated by a 527 and Oooo, his team filed a complaint. I do not care if the Media, Hillary, McCain or whoever are unfair or dirty fighters. That's reality. That's what he needs to control.

[Just call him Swifty.]

I am sick and disgusted at how lame Obama and his campaign have become. If he is unwilling to fight his opposition he had no business running.

[First he has to fight his friends like Rev. Wright.]

And the analogy of boxing and rope-a-dope is deeply flawed. Boxing involves referees enforcing rules and judges who tally points. The referees are the Mediawhores and they are not going to step in and call foul when Hillary delivers a low-blow. The judges are a lot of low-info voters being mind-f*cked by their tvs. And after this 'match' Obama has to go and fight again with an even MORE formidable opponent. Only he is being damaged severely.

[Obama would have had a free ride to the nomination had it not been for Operation Chaos. Payback is a bitch.]

If Obama doesn't start fighting back with Hillary. If he doesn't start delivering lines that will capture the Media's attention... he will be permanently branded as a weak, losing elitist wimp.

[Will be?]

It's not fair or right that Hillary has decided to damage Obama. But she has. And Obama and his campaign seem to have decided they prefer to limp to the Nomination bleeding positive poll numbers and with ever an ever-diminishing capacity to come across as a leader.

[Thanx for correctly stating the goals of Operation Chaos. Even many EVIL rightwingers incorrectly think the goal is to get Hillary nominated. And now to hear from the rest of the nervous DUmmies...]

Too bad Hillary doesn't play to win while playing with class. She would rather toss hand-grenades (dare I say cluster bombs) at Obama in hopes of remaining the last candidate standing. It isn't working.

[Not working in the sense of getting herself nominated but working in that she is destroying the Democrat party...Thanx to Operation Chaos.]

Like it or not, Hillary has forced the Primary to continue.

[And you DON'T like it. Again, kudos to Operation Chaos.]

Just because Hillary doesn't have any scruples about that doesn't mean he has to abandon his and lose every female Democratic vote in the process.

[The Obamassiah is just too good for us.]

Fighting back means he has to hit Hillary on her ugly little secrets.

[Like Botox.]

The sick thing, Hillary's gas station photo-op was the TRUE Dukakis in a tank moment.

[Hey. Operating a coffee machine is a highly technical matter.]

the 'big picture' is the General Election. And Obama is looking weaker and weaker as Hillary runs over him time and again. He will have so much lost ground to cover, because for some reason he refuses to fight.

[The Democrat convention comes at the end of August so no R&R for Obama because he has to immediately plunge into the Fall campaign.]

In the meantime, Americans are witnessing an elitist pansy getting walked all over by Hillary Clinton.

[At least he will get the elitist pansy vote.]

He has to either destroy her or get out of the way and let her melt down on her own. It's a shitty choice, but I think he's playing the best card he was dealt.

[Thanx to Operation Chaos. Hee! Hee!]

He's looking PATHETIC now.

[That look will linger into November.] Hillary keeps it up Obama's stock is going to get lower and lower.

[You can thank Rush Limbaugh for that.]

He is allowing himself to be defined. And it's a rather unflattering definition. He looks absolutely shell-shocked.

[Again, thank Operation Chaos for that shell-shocked look.]

He has no backbone, it is just who he is some have it and some don't

[John Kerry has his backbone.]

Obama the man is an empty-suit - he simply can't match the toughness of Hillary Clinton.

[Enjoy nominating the empty suit in August.]

Change we can believe in, as seen on TV!

I'm sure T-man approves of this, 100 percent. It's a perfect example of the "liberal" (progressive?) mindset; he who controls the information will control the population.

There's no need to let people decide for themselves. Obama just needs to control the information and all will be well. There's no need for controversy, no need for debate, and absolutely no need for individual thought. Those just get in the way of Obama's "message."

Instead, there is a great need for Obama to control of the media and make sure that everyone hears only what Obama wants them to hear, knows only what Obama wants them to know, and thinks only what Obama wants them to think.

Control the information so that you can control the population. Lenin, Stalin, Mao, and Castro would be proud!

Ha, this is funny- milquetoast. I always thought Barack looked skinny and weak-kind of gangly. JFK was young, but he was strong looking with a big meaty Kennedy head like Teddy. Even Maria Shriver got the big Kennedy head but all bones and no meat.

I, like the Obamas are tired of the constant talking of Wright. It's over and they should let it go. I think the media should move on and discuss more important topics for a few days. Say, Tony Rezko... I'm sure after the Rev isn't being talked about for a few days, he'll find a way back to the spotlight. I'm sure that all of that would help the Messiah in the polls!

I'll be the one to say it.

"Ken Norton" is done.

Doubtless he was some stupid wanker that gave you a wedgie and you have used this forum to jerk him around...

Fine. Call it a day.

Dude. I bought some helicopter kites, your gambling thing was just... weird, the Gore stuff was antique and should have been buried long ago and, no, I DON'T need any more bluetooth stuff. Thanks.

Seriously, enough already.

Finish, eh?

Strikes me as this is a lose lose deal for the Superdelegates. Do they follow the pledged delgates and back a GE loser, or do they override the will of the voters and back a GE loser??

If the Dems had alloted their delgates in the same manner as the GOP does,more winner take all states; Hillary would of clinched this already. Of course we wouldn't be having this much fun, and there'd be no Operation Chaos; so thank God for their crappy socialist-style primary voting system.

The patrician nature of their whole idiotic superdelegate system is truly mind-boggling, it's like they couldn't stand to go completely Populist and wanted to leave their oligarchs and demagogues a means to swoop in and pull it away from a popular nut job. Bonus delegates to the winner in each State would have made sense, or some winner-take-all States, but the superdelegate part of their current system is about as small-"d"-democratic as a Nuremburg rally.

Sorry about the double post. After publishing the first one, the text seemed to be missing. Hence the second.

Then both appeared, proving I can't even quote myself accurately.

Unfortunately we had a plethora of candidates, none of them with across-the-board appeal. Of the social Conservatives, the religiously-focused went in one direction, the libertarian in another, with Doctor Crazy further splitting the up the libertarian Conservatives. Only the selection of Supreme Court Justices and the management of national security policy remain as reasons to even leave the house in November for Conservatives valuing the Second Amendment (and to a very great extent the First, considering the ineluctable genius of McCain-Feingold).
The Republican Party truly sucks at growing successors when it does win anything. It is just a sad fact of political life.

The Republican party truly sucks because it does not oppose the socialistic pull of the Democrats and therefore cannot make consistent arguments against them. Democrats are consistent in their arguments for expanded government and encroachment on individual rights "for the good of society," thus compromises always work in their direction.

No Republican except Ronald Reagan has been consistent in resisting socialism and its only possible end in communism. Reagan never forgot that the sole legitimate function of government is to protect individual rights and he never forgot that individual rights are inalienable to Man, not a gift from government.

If we truly had a Republican candidate, they would win a 48-50 state Electoral College LANDSLIDE against the Socialist Democrats and could possibly virtually destroy them as a political entity.

Sadly, however, the Socialist Democrats managed to get a Democrat nominated as the Republican nominee, and he has gone to great lengths to show he's not willing to do what it takes to indicate he really wants the job. As such, McCain will be lucky to win by the same margin Bush did in 2004, and even worse for the country, the Socialist Democratic Party of American will survive to further screw the American public.

But you Wingnuts just loves Grandpa. Let's see.

"(CBS) John McCain's upbeat view of the war in Iraq isn't shared by many Americans, according to a CBS News poll."

"(NYT) Now Mr. McCain’s central role in that effort (Keating 5), which cleared the way for confirmation of some conservative jurists, is cited as one reason for lingering distrust of him among many conservatives."

"(CBS) According to American Conservative Union chairman David Keene, John McCain is not what you'd call a conservative's conservative."

" (WP-Novak) McCain, as the "straight talk" candidate, says things off the cuff that he sometimes cannot remember exactly later."

Don't pay attention to that man behind the curtain.

It isn't your logic. McCain is going to sweep the floor with whomever the democrats pick as their nominee. 8 more years of Republican Rule! Sweet!

This is called "Magical Thinking". No basis in fact. Some say religion qualifies as being...never mind.

Question of the night: What's the difference between 'hope' and 'faith' anyway?
