Didn’t Obama Actually Beat Clinton in Texas?

‘Reports of My Death Have Been Greatly Exaggerated’

“… abandoning the practice of political candidates to tip their hat with one hand and drop a banana peel with the other.”

Texas with Counties

The word on the street is that Obama may have a Mark Twain moment. The original quote is actually more relevant. Twain’s handwritten note read, ‘James Ross Clemens, a cousin of mine was ill two or three weeks ago in London, but is well now. The report of my illness grew out of his illness. The report of my death was an exaggeration.’

We feel this is actually quite apropos to the current situation and closely fitting with the personality of Barack Obama. That is to say – abandoning the practice of political candidates to tip their hat with one hand and drop a banana peel with the other.

“… overall Obama lead in Texas after counting caucuses …”

Even with the information so clearly suggesting an overall Obama lead in Texas after counting caucuses , the Obama camp hasn’t lit up banners or hit the airwaves with a departure from their message.  More details here from Jonathan Alter’s Newsweek Piece. There’s even a Slate delegate calculator link within Alter’s article.  Jack Cafferty of CNN did a fine job too.

We think the ‘chill-style’ is going to pay-off big-time for Obama. In a few short days, after what appears to be a turn-around for Hillary Clinton, it is possible that her own hubris and the tactics of her team may in fact completely turn it around to its starting position.

Obama’s Resolve and Confidence – Frustrates Some

“… mastery of innuendo that is making her look … well kind of like the Monster…”

Critics all over talk radio had advice for Barack Obama. TV Talking spokesmodels and ‘newsish’ types also had plenty to say about the ‘Kitchen Sink’ attack from Hillary Clinton. clintonmonster.jpgMuch of which is filled with some pretty disturbing distortions. Some may say out right lies – but its Hillary’s mastery of innuendo that is making her look … well kind of like the Monster that Pulitzer Prize winning author and scholar, Samantha Power described in her interview with Gerri Peev of the Scotsman.

Hillary is very adept at using sarcasm. We like that about her. But being good at the art of sarcasm and satire doesn’t mean that it is always honest. There is sufficient media archival proof that Hillary Clinton has had battles with rigorous honesty and is too far along in her political career to ‘green it up’ now. In fact, we are confident that at the time we finally see the Clinton Tax returns – ‘Greening it up’ may have a completely different connotation.

“Obama … definitive leadership … disciplined temperament.”

Thus, from our perspective, Barack Obama shows the definitive leadership assets of patience and disciplined temperament. Even his detractors, career Republicans agreeing to hoist McCain or those that have agreed to bolster Hillary Clinton to insure a win foroandh.jpg McCain, have to be moved by a leadership calmness and confidence that we haven’t seen in the Presidency for many years.

Much to the dismay of many supporters, the Obama camp doesn’t have an emergency spin system and capitulating counter-offenses. Many consider it a flawed strategy. Some of us don’t consider it anything but a winning solution.

  1. Firing Powers was a mistake, Obama has shown himself to be subservient to the PIAPS. Great post. Obama’s aide was right. Hillary is a monster. Of course not the same kind of monster as Hitler, Mao or Stalin, but a monster nonetheless.
