Obama: Brand Consistent

Singular Temperament

more revealing of their own lack of discernment and lust for blood-sport.

As a study in leadership, the Obama campaign has been a stunning example of effective leadership and dedicated team building.  This may have as much to do with those creating the message, as it does with those carrying the message.  Supporters, most visibly consisting of the broadest representation of Democrats and Independents, is demonstrably different in composition than the opposing Clinton campaign, and this is repeatedly evident in the arguments between the campaigns,  and the manner in which the respective groups entreaty the electorate.

The Clinton team had routinely been very aggressive and media savvy in packaging and executing each argument, often optioning media opportunities to preview potential major assaults and empowering those that fared well.  The high priced marketing gurus of the Clinton campaign would then, apply resources to arguments that fared well in their crafty focus group approach.  Since the myriad of info-tainment channels are clamoring for content – the campaign professionals would have been remiss to not capitalize on opportunities.  However, after a series of missteps by Senator Clinton, those media opportunities became the testing ground for plausible defences instead of a potential glimpses of policy and values initiatives.

Conversely, the Obama campaign has not altered its strategies, however, it is duly noted that tactically, they have maneuvered the campaign in such a way as to control their own message by not operating from the defensive posture.  In fact, the campaign has demonstrated a patience via a confident pause, which almost without fail, has permitted its attackers to bloody themselves by not protecting themselves from the ricochet of their own dangerous assertions.

Often this patience has been misinterpreted by the corporate media as not effective.  Calls from the info-tainment glitterati and political pundits alike for Obama to hit back and hit hard – have been wide off the mark. Although, to date, not one of the millionaire club of broadcasters has admitted that their poor assessment of Obama’s strategy was more revealing of their own lack of discernment and lust for blood-sport.

Hope Springs Eternal

Geraldine Ferraro began to talk so much, no one wanted to hear her anymore and everyone was encouraging her to seek counseling

The message of hope from the Obama campaign, was never cavalierly tossed about as the Clinton Campaign asserted.  Again, Hillary Clinton, in a show of hubris and frustration, mocked Obama’s message of hope; yet, the single most devastating blow to Clinton, was delivered by her own words as the public, press and youth rejected her argument, chastised her and punished her campaign for the sophomoric and sarcastic speech in which she mocked not only the Obama message, but the sentiments of millions of voters that believe that his message is precisely what is missing from the political landscape.

While Hillary may have had a few seconds of immediate gratification from her animated assault on hope… she paid a heavy price, since shortly thereafter, a number of prominent figures declared for Obama, directly attributing their timing as expressive of their belief that Senator Clinton had convinced them that Obama was the only choice. Further evidenced by the Clinton campaign, again changing its message, reapplying ‘Change’ throughout the campaign and distancing itself from their own assault on Obama.

The Clinton campaign, expensively staffed with marketing magnates, political warfare strategists and Democratic party dinosaurs struggles to maintain a degree of power and relevance even though their politics is obsolete and partly responsible for our present demise.   Geraldine Ferraro, a perfect example of the Clinton dinosaurs, took any opportunity to speak on a myriad of TV news outlets in order to promote her own brand and further call into question Hillary Clinton’s leadership and campaign message.

The pundits, with fingers crossed, tossing hands of coins into fountains and wishing-wells, didn’t get their wish. Obama would not take the bait.  He would not be foolish enough to engage.  By simply exercising a little patience, just like her candidate – Geraldine Ferraro began to talk so much, no one wanted to hear her anymore and everyone was encouraging her to seek counseling, since her conclusions and assertions betrayed any facade of mental health she had previously enjoyed.

A Positive Mentality

They seldom overreact, they seldom express contentious issues with contentious language.

The singular most damaging mistake Obama opponents have made is confusing a positive message with a positive mentality.  It is flaw in critical thinking that further distinguishes the candidates and their respective teams.  The differences are stunning.

The Clinton team has given every indication that they essentially have no plan to win the nomination other than encouraging their supporters to be anti-Obama, asserting that the Obama campaign has called for her to step down.  While this may create enough distracting buzz, it is not without permanent damage to the party and to herself politically.

Conversely, Obama’s team consistently delivers an upbeat message.  They are focused on the Republican Party opposition and apparently trust the DNC to solve the MI and FL debate, which includes Obama representation.  They have managed to keep the issues separate and distinct from matters of governance, public policy and international relations.  Moreover, they have avoiding conflating political issues with public policy issues, another overwhelming shortcoming of Clinton’s leadership.

However, most clearly, the Obama team practices a mature methodology that minimizes negativity by expressing thoughts in a positive manner.  It is evidenced in the language of the campaign, in the demeanor of the campaigners and in the words of Obama.  The messages put out by the Obama campaign and the results of that message were not a secret.  The campaign has trained quite openly.  They seldom overreact, they seldom express contentious issues with contentious language.  They always react in a predictable manner that  apparently continues to frustrate his detractors and win over more supporters.

Clinton and Clinton: Politics of Personal Self-Destruction

– The Almost Daily Binx, San Jose, CA; by Binx101

Night and Day

But the single most damaging elements of the Hillary campaign have been her own – usually unscripted – words.

Cole Porter may have immortalized the tune – singing of undying love; however the night and day of Obama and Clinton politics decry polar opposites with nary a shred of love.  While the differences between the two camps are dramatic – they are nonetheless, predictable.  On this Memorial Day week-end, replete with non-stop broadcasts of WWII themed cinema, one could envision the Clinton battleship intercom summoning damage control and launching countermeasures.  The sad fact, however, is that the damage to the Clinton battleship is directly attributable to poor seamanship and the most damaging blows have come from its own guns.

The Obama camp has issued only one official statement with regards to the latest Clinton gaffe, using June as a political month in which anything can happen, declaring it to have “no place in this race” and “unfortunate.” Of course, the arguably fatal allegory, including  turn-around historical events such as the tragic murder of RFK, has ignited incredible acrimony among mid-grounders and has launched a diving contest of Super-delegates off-the-fence.  The rebuke of Hillary’s incredibly insensitive comment has led many to question her campaign’s rhetoric of her Stately prowess.

Not unlike the Titanic, the Clinton battleship was outfitted with less life-boats than were necessary, because of a false sense of security regarding the ship’s integrity, structural superiority and quality of construction.  There was little consideration of the Captain’s and Crews’ seamanship to plot a course that would safely deliver its payload in an effective and meaningful manner, relying carelessly on outdated maps and retired Admirals to sail uncharted waters.  Many refer to this carelessness as a claim  of ‘entitlement’ that emanates from the bowels of the Democratic Leadership Committee – a modern study in political hubris. But the single most damaging elements of the Hillary campaign have been her own – usually unscripted – words.

Hillary Blames Obama Campaign – Bill Clinton: Plays the Pity Card

What we hear is Bill Clinton complaining that Hillary is paying for his sins

In a widely predicted flourish of countermeasures, Hillary Clinton accused Barack Obama of driving a misunderstanding regarding her latest episode of hoof-in-mouth disease, and the ensuing media melee.  Truth be told – Obama spokespersons were in unison around all media most demonstrably steering clear of the maelstrom created by Clinton’s own words.  Almost like clockwork, the Clinton machine of Democratic Dinosaurs has been reverting to type and offering arguments that the Obama campaign has shaped the media and general public’s perception of her comments.  If this were possible, we suggest that the Clinton campaign would have been over on February 5th, 2008.

Despite numerous comments by Barack Obama, supporting the legitimacy of a protracted primary race, thus offering no support to those demanding she drop out – the Clinton campaign has been relentless in launching ad hominem attacks against Obama and apparently engaging in paranormal mathematics.

Meanwhile, Bill Clinton has engaged in another dimension by declaring that Hillary Clinton is being treated unfairly.  Understandably, one contestant will win and one will lose, but to listen to Bill Clinton – the mixed race, Barack Hussein Obama has had more favorable treatment.  Not unlike his colleague and Clinton operative Gerri Ferraro, who decried that Obama already had an advantage because he was a black male ( a conclusion that may eventually earn Ferraro a well deserved psychological evaluation); Bill Clinton has begun singing a chorus of “Shame on you America for not handing this to Hillary on a silver platter.”

This in itself might be tolerable if not for the fact that Bill Clinton plunged our nation into neocon control of Congress because of his inability to politically manage the Democratic party under his control.  Then, with the judgment of a hormonally dysfunctional high school student, he engaged in sexual dalliances with a young woman, in the White House.  The result of which further unhinged the Democratic party and shifted public opinion to accept that their president was a pathological liar – with a law degree, that might very well hit on ones teenage daughter at a fund-raiser.  What we hear is Bill Clinton complaining that Hillary is paying for his sins – a potential reality that in part, may not be as far-fetched as it appears, but not for the same reasons as he may think.

Campaign Leadership is Prologue

unwavering campaign message, even under severe attack by both McCain and Clinton operatives

Considering the campaigns of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, the startling differences of leadership have been pronounced to the degree that it is reflective not only of their political supporters but an indelible mark of their individual leadership styles and capabilities.  The practices of the Senators have received far more scrutiny than in recent elections, and thus, have been revealing to degree that would have escaped previous presidential races, if not for the unusual nomination contest this year.  Barack Obama, has been the beneficiary of this extended nomination process in our final analysis.

Average Americans that are certain to vote Democratic in the fall have had a glimpse into leadership styles, communication skills and the ability to manage a cohesive message.  Team building, as a very important component of executive leadership skills, have also been Night and Day. The dramatically different leadership styles and subsequent results from a team perspective are evident in the exponential growth of Obama’s supporters from grassroots beginnings – in contrast to Clinton’s campaign that has been borne from party elders in the NY Democratic machine coupled with National party elders that were very comfortable with more-of-the-same.

We respectfully submit that the Hillary Clinton campaign is terminal not because of Team Clinton’s assertions of unfairness, sexism, etc… but rather the fact that Obama’s lack of political ballast of Democratic Dinosaurs, his working knowledge as a Professor of Constitutional law; and, his ability to inspire and deliver an unwavering campaign message, even under severe attack by both McCain and Clinton operatives, has continually propelled Obama.  In addition the youth movement that has gained considerably more momentum will be very important to the future of our Nation’s healing process.

We further submit that the youth of our Nation have every right to be a deciding component in choosing the next president of the United States considering the fact that the current president has squandered our reputation, squandered many American lives and squandered our treasury’s surplus, largely at the expense of the next two generations.  As a Nation we have seen what tenured political leadership has delivered as a largely uninspired electorate stood by idly, addicted to chest pounding and fairy-tales.  Indeed they have every right to weigh in on the change in our political leadership.

Hillary Clinton : The Other Shoe

The Gaffe Heard ‘Round the World

“… a revealing flaw in thinking and a discouraging glimpse of desperation that is stunning …”

We have stated from the very beginning, that Hillary Clinton did not possess the communications skills that are generally associated with the Presidency.  That being said – after nearly eight years of suffering through the in-artful repertoire of George Bush’s spoonerisms, malapropisms, dangerously dangling participles and other weapons of etymological destruction – our criticism of Hillary must have seemed harsh, particularly to her supporters.  While it is not the happiest of observations it is borne out repeatedly – oddly enough – by all things, her own words.  There is no Mayhill Fowler, alleged citizen reporter, with hidden microphone to take the word “bitter” out of context, or a cadre of Watergate plumbers bugging the Clinton bathroom – the words that have harmed Hillary Clinton have all been said – not once – but repeatedly – so they aren’t generally ‘mis-speaks.’  They are mis-thinks, mis-planning, mis-scripting, mis-strategy and mis-tactics, which all goes leadership.  So it is our observation, that communications “chops” are pretty much an indication of leadership “chops” and in plain jazz terms – Hillary couldn’t find the back beat in a Spiritual.

The first paragraph opened with the term communication skills, and with all due respect, they are reflective of what one thinks and how one thinks – and – can be more revealing as to a weakness in conceptual thinking.   These skills are also reflective of what one hears and how one reacts to what they have heard.  And lastly it is reflective of simultaneously speaking, listening and improving ones message. If one doesn’t possess them, they tend to lean more on cadences than substance.  They tend to try to manipulate with the timbre of their speech rather than the value of their message.   When one completes a sentence of which they have overtly flirted for three months in various press venues – this is not a misspeak.  This is a revealing flaw in thinking and a discouraging glimpse of desperation that is stunning even to the most seasoned political voyeur.  It was very sad that she invoked the murder of Robert F. Kennedy, in order to draw the conclusion that anything is possible.

Be Careful for What You Wish

“… the Obama campaign that has NEVER encouraged Hillary Clinton to withdraw – not even in abstract citing the greater party operation.  She repeated the lie again last night.”

The fact that the Camp Hillary has been waiting, hoping … perhaps even praying … for Senator Obama to make a tragic mistake in his campaign is no secret.  In fact, the Clinton operatives have caused a few flaps in trying to create one of two for the Senator from Illinois, when he hasn’t been cooperative to do it himself.  It reminds us of old slap-stick comedies, in which the apparent stooge always steps out of the trouble at the last minute, despite the antagonist’s seemingly flawless plan.   For instance just as he’s positioned over the trap door, a gust of wind from an opening door blows the intended victims hat to the floor- when the hat is retrieved, the villain is unaware that he’s actually now standing over the trap door that he had originally lured his victim.  A second later, the villain utters the cue to his accomplice below to trigger the trap door and presto – the villain is plunged into his own pot of tar beneath the stage.  In a previous articled we made a reference to the Clinton Campaign’s likeness to Wile E. Coyote in the Road-Runner cartoons.

Every news outlet, regardless of pedigree, has reported that the Clinton campaign was hopeful that Obama would provide the necessary drama with anything – from a last minute mistress scandal, more unseen tapes of  Rev. Wright, or perhaps even another US enemy endorsing Obama – yet team Obama has been uncooperative.  They have also been uncooperative in attacking Hillary.  They have not seized on the opportunity and ALL leadership in the Obama campaign, no matter how provoked, would NOT personally attack Hillary for her incredibly stupid, insensitive and revealing comment.  Even though Hillary has plainly lied in her interview with the ARGUS, by suggesting that the Obama campaign had called for her to quit, the Obama campaign would not attack her.   The Obama campaign has never called for Hillary Clinton to leave the race – in fact – they have been vociferous to the contrary.  There is not one quote of Obama or the Obama campaign that has EVER encouraged Hillary Clinton to withdraw – not even in abstract citing the greater party operation.  She repeated the lie again last night.  This appears to be Hillary’s ‘Dukakis Moment’, inasmuch as it’s the sound of the other shoe dropping.

Our Summary

We find it difficult to understand why the corporate media with few exceptions, has reported on the distinction between the Obama, McCain and Clinton campaigns.   While it seems that the presidency is the Nation’s if not the World’s most important management job – wouldn’t the manner in which a campaign has operated, both from a team building excercise to a fiscal responsiblity be a glimpse of the potential leader???

“Doesn’t show up for GI Bill vote .”

The McCain Campaign has been plagued by legal and Constitutional issues.  Everything from possible Federal Election Committee violations to McCain’s own possible manipulation of the FEC board in order to avail himself of additional unrecorded contributions via wife Cindy’s Airplane, not to mention 58 lobbyists still residing on his campaign team.  McCain, noted for his involvement as one of the Keating 5 in the famous banking debacle, selected as his Economy advisor, former Senator Phil Gramm, one of the architects of the current mortgage disaster and current Vice- Chair of the McCain campaign.  McCain’s judgment in courting small ‘c’ christian organizations has been rather revealing of the disingenious nature of McCain and his team, and their approach to using the religious fanatics, not unlike the president that endorsed his candidacy.  McCain is little more than the Republican stooge because the others were happy to drop out after realizing that the chances of Repbulicans winning in 2008 were very slim.  McCain is deluded into believing that he’s the choice – he’s the stooge. Campaign in fiancial distress – Message changed – 5 senior staffers terminatied (lobbyists) – Doesn’t show up for GI Bill vote .

“She has just lost any opportuntiy to be VP as well.”

The Clinton campaign, no stranger to lobbyists, in severe financial distress, whereby the candidate has loaned her own election campaign 11 million dollars and possibly more when the next campaign documentation is prepared.  She has lost more net delegates in the two days than she picked up in the last month.  She has been called on more than dozen times to edify comments that were either untrue or distorted emanating from her campaign leadership and she has had more than a handful of lobbyist issues to deal with, including the fact that her campaign strategist ‘Penn’ is a busines partner of John McCains campaign strategist ‘Black’.   Even to the point that Terry McAuliffe and Clinton have begun a rather curious repartee with Fox News and Karl Rove.  Very curious indeed.  The Right Wing and the Extreme Right Wing are panicked over an Obama presidency, because it is likely to inspire much more local political visiblity and activity a local level.   This is not good news for the Right.  They began to campaign for Hillary. She acceepted their support – openly and knowlingly.  She is desparate.  She has just lost any opportuntiy to be VP as well.

“… majority of the Nation’s youth are solidly and actively behind Obama’s message …”

The Obama Campaign has been shelled since its inception  – by both Republicans and Hillary.  The Obama campaign has not changed their message.  They have grown exponentially, despite public attacks by Clinton operatives.  They are not in debt, and they get healthier every day.  The majority of the Nation’s youth are solidly and actively behind Obama’s message, the clear leader.

Health Care – Part 1 : The Financial Hypnosis

Briefly

“.. Health Insurance, uses actuarial studies but doesn’t actually deliver Insurance.”

This article is going to be a look at the transformation of what was an obvious and proven approach to health care and how, lobbyists, financial companies and politicians forced the public discussion in a different direction and convinced many Americans to cheer for a system that steals from them.   While this article is an overview – its focus is on how the discussion changed and why.

There are a few quick terms that need to be clarified:

1. Patient: A patient is someone that is suffering illness and requires, medical counsel, education or medical treatment.  For the purposes of this discussion, there is no illness associated with breast augmentation, lypo-suction, or any of the the other cosmetic procedures delivered through health care professionals.

2. Finance Co.: This is a company that refers to itself as Health Insurance, uses actuarial studies but doesn’t acutally deliver Insurance.  What the Finance Co. provides is the equivalent of a pre-paid telephone card – however, they have the right to increase the connection charge – on the fly, with little recourse to the patient.

3.  Medical Professionals:  Doctors, Nurses, Scientists, Medical Admin, Services and Support; including public health services (gov’t)

4.  Non-medical Professionals: Massage therapists, teachers, instructors, social service representatives, other public health services (gov’t)

5.  Non-Insurance Medical Providers: Kaiser-Permanente is the perfect example. We will refer to it in subsequent installments of this article.

How DId the Discussion Change from Health Care to Health Insurance?

“… drama in the waiting room, eerie reminders of pre-Civil Rights days in the deep South.”

Fifteen years ago, there was a National discussion about health care, and 20 years before that, there were similar discussions.  The hiatus was supplied by the Vietnam war, Richard Nixon’s struggle with the rules, the warm-up energy crisis and Oliver North’s homegrown foreign diplomacy. Scores of other distractions were spawned by America’s financial boom, a nice way to describe the national addiction to investing and exponential profits that we’ll further refer to as financial crack cocaine.

When the discussions re-started, they included everything from expanding the public health service to providing basic health care for Americans.  Not only basic health care but health education and preventive medicine.  As it is, there is no incentive for delivering preventative medicine in the insurance company dominated health system – yet there are numerous financial incentives for treating more and more illness.  In short, the system, as is, becomes more profitable for investors if the number of sick people rises.  The system by design is flawed.  Consider a private police department whose investors privately hope for higher crime or less public safety in order to increase profits.

Now consider that the cost of detectives is driven by market conditions, and the amount of attention they can dedicate to particular cases is based on the overall profit of those cases, determined by the Financial Co-op.  Public safety, no longer driving the results, the highest profit is realized when more and more cases are opened and crime is elevated, since the crime victim must pay, or pay through a Finance Co., for services.

So as you can see, for the purposes of Part One – we propose that Health Care is essentially the same as Public Safety, Public Water and Sewer, Public Works.  There is only one answer to how the discussion was altered and thereby further dividing classes of American citizens.  The most obvious being Insured and Uninsured.  While many may not see this as a ‘Class’ distinction – visit  Medical Professional company in your area and observe the drama in the waiting room, eerie reminders of pre-Civil Rights days in the deep South.

Pay Attention to Small Stuff

“… the payment was spread among the entire school population.”

For the purposes of this section of the article – we’re going to have to stick to practices and not specific people or companies.  While we have some excellent examples of specific people and companies that benefited greatly by redirecting the national discussion, we’ll save that for later chapters, with footnotes and research material.

Clearly, the changes were motivated by a new approach to economics.  After being indoctrinated with ‘free-market’ platitudes, even High School football teams were looking for revenue far beyond what booster clubs and community fund-drives could yield.  So the answer is appetite.  The American appetite for opportunity and great return.

When Junior High schools were selling real-estate to Coke and Pepsi so that they could line the halls with machines selling high fructose corn syrup laden carbonated drinks to children; we were trading public health for corporate finance.  While it paid for the illuminated scoreboard on the football field and much more updated uniforms and equipment, the payment was spread among the entire school population.

While on the surface it seems to be logical, there was a serious breech of both public health and the loco parentis care of our children of which public schools are charged.  But ‘the Beat goes on’ seemed more enticing than pedantic pleas of health professionals about force-feeding our youth sugary water.  And anyone that doesn’t believe that Soda dispensing machines strategically located throughout a public school isn’t force-feeding than we beckon a more suitable word.

Courting Independence

“… then you were going to get credit – big and fast.”

The financial appetite for return on investment permeated the atmosphere.  IRA’s abounded benefiting investors with deferred income tax and lower base taxes by lowering their taxable income.  It was all the talk at the supermarket, at the beauty parlor, at the VFW and at the golf course.  An entire generation of tax planners were armed with Texas Instruments printing calculators in order to show investors, just how many millions they would have at early ’80s interest rates of 12%.

These opportunities were not curtailed simply by the sudden drop in interest rates as the stock market began its first surge – because the SEC swung open the doors at the behest of the Reagan Administration to permit individuals to personally direct their retirement money into the risky equity markets.  Penny stocks abounded with the lucre of  Mom’s and Pop’s, although, much of it evaporated by the late 80’s as the equity markets – adjusted.  That’s what they call crashes because of uncontrolled financial growth – “adjustments”.  On the way up … they don’t call them anything, because no one can hear over the cheering.

Pick a Card – Any Card

“.. create a highly lucrative financial turbine of the insurance company.”

During this period of time, gasoline rose in price, food rose in price and health care rose in price.  A society stuck for a  ready cash with appetites further whetted by buying stocks and bonds on margin; they started abandoning the sound financial tenets of their roots and willingly accepted credit cards in the simple recruitment terms of the credit card companies.  Buying on credit was easy. It was certainly an analgesic to financial pain -moreover – the new American voracious appetite for  acquiring  more “stuff” wouldn’t be derailed because the disposable cash dried up.  Not for a second.  If you could prove that you were stupid enough to load up your retirement portfolio with Penny Stock get rich quick schemes and would be ‘market averaging’ for the next 100 years in order to get your principle back – then you were going to get credit – big and fast.

The Finance companies were watching and in the game.  They were buying up medical services companies and even hospitals through holding companies and even real estate trusts.  After all, if you are going to expand a business that collects money , shouldn’t you also own the companies that you ultimately pay.  In this way you can add the power of the check book while containing costs. Further,  by leveraging the assets of the holding company by selling it off to investors – the Finance Co. in actuality, creates a highly lucrative financial turbine from what appears to be an insurance company.  Ultimately, taking more in than it pays out,  the Finance company maintains high profitability by delivering less health care to the insureds.  In effect, they create a layer that in conclusion, does nothing but convert the massive buying power of an organized group, and convert it into investor profit instead of an actual comprehensive medical plan.  It’s very much like the new Electronic Scoreboard and the Soda machines.

To be continued ……  part Two next week.

George Bush – John McCain : The ‘Kevin James’ of Politicians

-The Almost Daily Binx, San Jose California; by Binx101

Bush Badmouths American Political Rivals While on Foreign Soil

“… Bush read the words with little evidence in his eyes that he actually had any comprehension of their meaning …”

As astounding as it may be, disgraceful President George Bush has taken the Kevin James approach to a foreign country and thus is moving into unprecedented lower approval ratings than Richard Nixon at the height of the Watergate disgrace hearings. Not only was it frustrating to listen to him struggle with his native tongue, but to further use the 60th Anniversary of Israel, as a platform to issue criticism of American political rivals, speaks volumes to this feckless puppet leader’s contempt for dignity and his abysmally poor judgment.  Reading speeches that appear to be penned by Neocon political assassins, Bush mouthed the words with little evidence in his eyes that he actually had any comprehension of their meaning; often tipped off by his inconsistent facial expressions that seem oddly misplaced.

McCain – More Time Traveling

“… in another time traveling experience had previously criticized the Bush Administration for not sitting down and talking with Hamas …”

The echo chorus from career lobbyist, Sen. John “Loop Hole” McCain was no surprise, yet in stark contrast to one of his previously flipped positions.  That is to say,  McCain tripped over his own contradictory position while rushing to capitalize on Bush’s, somewhat treasonous blunder.  Clearly trying to legitimate his Obama / Hamas comments – “Loop Hole” began nodding in assent at any opportunities yesterday and today to hammer Obama.  While still unclear if he began doing it again today because he forgot he addressed it yesterday – staffers have purportedly been helping the struggling ‘time traveler’ with the actual facts.  Not unlike fellow neocon water carrier, Kevin James, McCain is always willing to volunteer a resounding opinion, irrespective of whether he has any clue of the subject matter; providing he can work in some anti-Obama sentiment.  The record however shows that McCain, in another time traveling experience had previously criticized the Bush administration for not sitting down and talking with Hamas, among other rival governments in the Middle East.

Dana Perino – Carries the Torch Back Home

“… she glared at the Press Corps with Kevin James eyes.”

In a typical press conference, that seem more like a ‘smirk-offs’ these days, Dana Perino, with shrugged shoulders and incredulous gesturing, tried to convince the American press that Bush’s disgusting words, suggesting the some Americans were akin to Nazi appeasers, specifically should be understood to exclude Barack Obama.  As though offering this piece of illogic was not enough, she went on to accuse those criticizing the President’s offensive remarks, as the politicizers of record, as she glared at the Press Corps with Kevin James eyes.

KRLA’s Kevin James : The Anatomy of Idiocy – UPDATED

-San Jose California, The Almost Daily Binx; by Binx101,

Overview

This story is brief, because the subject of this story,  Kevin James the quintessential idiot, reveals his essence immediately – out of the gate.  A neocon’s nightmare come true, this ranting imbecile becomes almost uncommunicative and backs himself into a corner by having a conversation with two relatively smart guys, while quoting the Nation’s leading idiot – George Bush.  Additionally, he is deranged.

There is a video below.

Secondly, let’s eliminate any confusion about Kevin James.

It’s not this one:  He’s a successful and funny comedian with a syndicated TV Show under his belt.

Here’s the second rate neocon from LA with less brains than a mailbox and more hate than a junkyard dog

Anatomy 1-2-3

Step One: Accept a Booking to Provide Commentary to Boost Your Ratings

What a mistake if you don’t know what you’re talking about.  Apparently, Mr. James only talks … and has no ability to listen or reason.  He is the absolute epitome of a neocon information puppet.  He opens with a repetitious and unkind tirade about Barack Obama – surprise !!

Step Two:  Lose Your Mind and Keep Talking

It’s incredible, as though he didn’t even understand English.  If this were not live television it would have seemed as though it were a spoof.  He was without self-control and apparently not in possession of a GED from a correspondence school.

Step Three:  Continue to talk over the host

And, continue to prove that you  and the person that hired you should be fired together.  Make sure by the time you’re finished … everyone knows that you are a paid propagandist so that they can begin boycotting KRLA and it’s sponsors.  We are.

UPDATE:

If you would like to offer your civic minded disdain to KRLA, the highlighted link (in the above article) to KRLA will open to the station’s homepage.

The horizontal bar, about a third of the way across the page has a link to a list of the station’s advertizers.

Clicking on it reveals email links directly to those advertizers.

We encourage you to be heard by sending email to these advertisers and experience the benefit of helping stamp out the terrorism movement of this extreme Right Wing misinformation machine.

It is our opinion that Kevin James is an anti-American terrorist. We strongly believe in the First Amendment and see no better way to fight terrorism than starting at home with these sabbateurs of reason, by letting our collective voices ring louder than their despicable propaganda, and by giving those that pay them a reminder that they have a choice.

Camp Hillary: That was Then – This is Now – Update – Video Added

– San Jose California, The Almost Daily Binx -13 May 2008; by Binx101;

Terry McAuliffe – Political Yahtzee

We picture his morning excercise to include fifteen minutes of “You lookin’ at me ??”

In moves of desperation, seasoned with some B-movie theatrics, the Hillary Clinton Campaign is looking for a political do-over.  This is accomplished by ignoring reality and floating out the possibility of Barack Obama having a ‘Bill O’Reilly’ moment in public melt-down, beating his children while robbing a bank. Now, bring out a holiday post-meal favorite – Yahtzee !!!  Of course if this analogy were to be a bit more complete … it would include the fact that in this case – there’s been no meal.  Just Yahtzee.

And what Yahtzee it is … as everyone watches … the HRC team rolls ones, but fills in sixes; then they roll twos and fill in fives. But the fun part is, everyone is watching.  Directly to the point – we believe Terry McAuliffe has a life altering bonus at stake – and has decided that his prize is more important than acknowledging the truth, doing the right thing or the entire health of the Democratic Party.  We don’t know what it is, but his once pleasant smiling face has been replaced with gambler’s worried look and an aspiring mobster’s glare.  We picture his morning exercise to include fifteen minutes of “You lookin’ at me ?? Eh? You lookin’ at me???” in a spittle covered mirror.

Going for Broke – The Next Career?

“… collective of policies of the Hillary Clinton campaign should be of grave concern to supporters and precursor to the high likelihood of this behavior carrying on into a Clinton presidency.”

But the real meat on the bone – is the fact that Terry McAuliffe, seems to be unfamiliar with his own words (cick-here), (as head of the Democratic National Committee) sternly warning Michigan that there delegates would not be ‘seated’ under any circumstances, if they attempted to move up their primary and violate the rules, four years ago.  In fact, these were not just words, but rather they were threats, to Senator Carl Levin (D-MI.) McAuliffe seems to ignore reality when confronted with his own unwavering position and continues speaking as though he didn’t hear, read – or -in fact write his own contradiction to his current position on behalf of Hillary.

We’re not quite sure what the potential upside is for McAuliffe, but we feel safe to assume that the prize for his public self-destruction and career suicide is a stream of Murdoch book deals and a five year contract with FOX News.  A company, by the way that McAuliffe has been publicly praising and courting, in another mind-boggling reversal of attitude.  In addition, we feel that this “kitchen sink” and “anything goes” collective of policies of the Hillary Clinton campaign should be of grave concern to supporters and precursor to the high likelihood of this behavior carrying on into a Clinton presidency.

The Resilience of Wile E. Coyote

“… an Obama presidency would serve to unravel the very network of corrupt Democratic politics that has shielded many …”

Any fan of the Road-Runner cartoons remembers two things.  The Road-Runner always wins, and Wile E. Coyote never quits.  It doesn’t matter what the cost, what the danger or the obvious reality. The coyote is driven beyond the realm of reality, beyond the limits of physical abuse and beyond the limits of any public good … covering roads with debris, causing mine shafts to collapse … and sending missiles in the air with a disregard for when they miss their target.

While McAuliffe, is clearly auditioning for his next job, although it is highly unlikely it will be in Democratic politics, Hillary has passed up the opportunity to make a difference in any form in future, because of the tenor of her campaign and the obvious refusal to acquiesce to the inspirational candidate, the youthful candidate and the non-collateralized candidate.  Of course the danger to Clinton, is that an Obama presidency would serve to unravel the very network of corrupt Democratic politics that has shielded many of the dinosaurs from public scrutiny.
