Barack vs. The Volcano (Redux)

The Candidate is the Campaign, Period

…inexplicable disassociation with current events, stunningly inadequate communication skills, dubious team building expertise and an endless stream of banalities…

McCain’s campaign deserves the ‘Ship of Fools’ moniker, and they prove it daily – not only in the fact that they defy reason in the overtly fictionalized representation of the Senator’s leadership skills, but with their flagrant disregard for facts.  The campaign’s message is confusing hot air and ash; noxious, dirty and deadly.  The representations of the future are in direct conflict to McCain’s past record. In fact, many of the conflicts have been navigated by McCain within a single news cycle – whereby he reverses course on his own comments within hours of his original.  We’ve said it before, McCain does more about-faces in a day than a Naval Drill Team and it is hardly understandable how he hasn’t screwed himself into the ground where he stands.

The McCain Volcano is replete with a cast of the ‘Usual Suspects’ that make Keyser Söze seem like Captain Kangaroo.  It’s not just that they  represent the ruling class that created the volcanic cone that is impacting America, but because their ideological scam has devalued the American worker and fleeced the National wealth.  A re-distribution of wealth that not only has devalued currency but has gambled the American legacy by decimating the US Military, inspired greater global terrorism in a manner most fiction writers wouldn’t have felt was believable and created the necessity of corporate welfare that is undeniable, yet is placed directly on the shoulders of an abused middle-class.

Yet, without skipping a beat, John McCain goes news cycle after news cycle displaying an excess of poor leadership style, inexplicable disassociation with current events, stunningly inadequate communication skills, dubious team building expertise and an endless stream of banalities, slogans and staggering contradictions.  However, the patented GOP response to what must be global observations of McCain is always preceded with an attack on Barack Obama.  This is the sensibility that riots are made of – not important political decisions.  The mere fact, that Phil Gramm (the birth parent of the Financial Services Modernization Act which abrogated Glass – Steagall) is an economic adviser and former co-chair of the McCain campaign should be reason enough for any reasonable human being from disregarding McCain as an option in November.  When punctuated with McCain’s stating that he’s not for the privatization of Social Security this week, after a decade of his vociferous support for privatization should shake even those that haven’t been paying attention to politics.

Even GPS Can’t Locate McCain positions

…it is unquestionable that John McCain is the Republican stooge who permitted his campaign to chose a VP running mate for him that was certain to distract the electorate…

“You can’t make this stuff up” was almost an appropriate sub-text for every McCain speech in the past week.  It was expressed by journalists, journo-tainers and the Obama campaign.  It was irresistable, as was the line that Obama worked into every speech declaring that the ‘Ole boy network was a McCain staff meeting.’  Truly, even those not enamored with shtick could resist broadly smiling each time it was repeated.

McCain would literally contradict himself within hours of taking a position. While great fodder for news / opinion / comedy – John McCain’s campaign activities are not just confined to the US airwaves but are making US Politics the laughing stock of the world we so desperately need to re-engage in a healthy way.  Imagine a President John McCain addressing the UN while the suspicious membership recall his attempts at detente by quipping ‘Bomb Bomb Bomb, Bomb Bomb Iran’  Just think about a man who has claimed in a Nationally broadcast interview “I know how to win wars!” as though the empty words had value.  He, to this day, he has not been challenged by the corporate media with access to him to back up that claim.  It is not only a sad commentary on John McCain’s grip on reality, but a revealing glimpse of the corporate media’s dubious attempts to keep the game going as long as possible.

After the disgrace that was billed as the Republican Convention, not limited to but including highly questionable police activity and the jailing of credentialed US Press journalists and the vile words of the resentful bridesmaids – it is unquestionable that John McCain is the Republican stooge who permitted his campaign to chose a VP running mate for him that was certain to distract the electorate from the facts and potentially build support.

Skill with Hope, Faith and Charity

When the talking heads and paid political analysts (even the friendlies) called for him to get into the street fight – he acknowledged their concern but won their respect for not blackening his own eyes with his own knees

It is our opinion that the premiere qualification for a presidential candidate is their ability to lead.  The skills required are a nimble mind, an ability to assemble heroic teams and reduce complex problems to a series of actionable events.  This is commentary and not a campaign ad – but Obama detractors have engaged in propoganda that borders historic proportions in order to disavow his accomplishments and the McCain campaign has engaged in politics that rival the disinformation of the current Bush administration.  In fact, Bush political operatives have been engaged by the McCain campaign in successful recruiting effort that the US Army wishes it could accomplish.

Hope:  Barack Obama adopted the word ‘Hope’ as an operative tool over a decade ago – it wasn’t born of a campaign. While there have been numerous accounts of it’s importance and volumes written mocking the emblatic overtone – it is overwhelmingly apparent that this is a fundamental precept of what makes Obama tick.  In contrast the McCain campaign has posited that Hope is not enough – even though it is abundantly clear that the Obama campaign has admirably operated with a positive mental attitude throughout the campaign.  The importance of this is evidenced in the fact that the current presidential race has been observed by many as being pivotal in the history of the USA and the Democratic contender rose from the ranks with a grassroots political organization that has out-raised any US Politician in history and defeated the tenured Democratic political machine in accomplishing the Party’s nomination.

Faith:  While this is of the most personal individual freedoms guaranteed by our Constitution, Obama’s faith has been challenged continuously with disturbing allegations.  Some of these allegations still being hoisted by still employed yet hardly relevant paid propogandists posing as commentators, are offensive not only to Obama, but to many Americans that are not fundamentalist Christians.  There is no question that these businesses celebrating non-profit status have provided cover for political operatives intent on tainting Obama.  To his credit, Obama has run the gauntlet of incomprehensible assertions with aplomb.

Charity:  This is the most evident of all the attributes of the Obama campaign.  Even when the neophyte political activists, supporting Obama began to call for his head-on-a-stick, because of his skillful manuevering of positions placed in his path by a concerted effort of the Republicans in Congress – team Obama managed to get the activist leadership to focus on singular actionable event that was more important – that being winning the election.  He did it without creating huge or lasting divisions.

When the talking heads and paid political analysts (even the friendlies) called for him to get into the street fight – he acknowledged their concern but won their respect for not blackening his own eyes with his own knees and patiently permitted the opposition to choke on their own hubris.  He has repeated this throughout the campaign and his control under fire has stunned the McCain rioters.

Obama Campaign : Harold Ickes KO’s Clinton

Don Fowler, a highly respected Democratic Party elder and vociferous Hillary supporter, concluded his day Saturday by stating he would abide to accept the decision of the committee even though the manner in which the Michigan and Florida delegates would be seated at the convention was not one that, he felt favored his candidate.  Earlier in the proceedings he defended the Clinton proposal which did not include compromise.  He concluded, however,  in a gracious and dignified manner, indicating the importance of party unity in electing a Democrat to the White House, and explaining why he voted in favor of the compromise.

In stark contrast, immediately following Fowler Harold Ickes calmly pelted the entire Delegate Committee with an insulting tone and the poor manners that has become synonymous with all things Clinton in the last few months.  An incredible display of hubris and ill-mannered discourse his rude display was not offered in the tone of contention that one might expect in circumstances of the current delegate debacle, but rather intoned with bitterness that one generally equates with losing equity investors in the great crash of 1929.

His ill tempered rebuke was not only evident in his words but also in the condescending hand gestures that trade-marked his tirade as he expressed contempt for the Democratic National Committee and their decision.  He concluded by intimating that party unity would not be had by the Committee’s decision despite the pledge of all participants to abide by the decision reached today.

He further, made personal references to a conversations with Don Fowler the evening before, suggesting the lack of wine during the days discussions may have encouraged the compromise.  It was cheap, insulting and a disgraceful final act for Ickes, further highlighted by his use of crude expressions in his final barrage. It is likely the last time that Ickes name will be relevant in Democratic politics.

He concluded by reminding the Committee that Mrs. Clinton had directed him to inform the Committee that she reserved the right to take her fight to the DNC Credentials Committee.

It is clear from the corporate news coverage, Internet news coverage and the blogosphere, that Harold Ickes performance today did more to push delegates to declare on behalf of Barack Obama than if he had been dignified in his demeanor and saved the pedantic lecture for the Clinton operators that continually interrupted the proceedings.

While it was understandable that there would be high spirited discussions and impassioned arguments to be heard from supporters of both Clinton and Obama, it was Harold Ickes that introduced a tone and timbre to the event that had the most aggressive Hillary supporters adopting a conciliatory posture at the events close, acknowledging that Obama will be the centerpiece of the Democratic Party engaging Republicans in November.

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.

Obama – Close the Deal? Journo-tainers Stir the Pot

– 25 April 2008, The Almost Daily Binx, San Jose, CA; by Binx101

“… played into the GOP’s hands by dividing and self-conquering. “

Popular television and cable news Journo-tainer Chris Matthews offered what he considered, solid sage advice for Barack Obama  at the close of Thursday’s edition of MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthews.  We respectfully submit that Matthews needs to bone up a little on his political science and his reading comprehension.  He proposed that Obama would be taken more seriously if he shifted his conversation to taking on McCain and showing what a fighter he can be, just like Hillary.

We demur, despite Matthews’ popularity as a TV Journo-tainer, we respectfully submit that he’s once again fallen off-the-wagon and is making news instead of commenting on it, by manufacturing facts that aren’t facts.  The Democratic nomination process is still underway and as far as we can see – the divisions in the Democratic Party are causing the actual nomination process to be prolonged while they disenfranchise party supporters and have played into the GOP’s hands by dividing and self-conquering.  Barack Obama needs to take on Hillary in exactly the way he is – and the national figures will still favor him – despite the Clinton propaganda machine and “new math.”

“… drive-by paint-ball currently passing for journalism”

Obama isn’t Hillary, and apparently he does not find her style appealing or helpful.  However, we are certain, that if Hillary had determined that Obama’s style, as it were, could be helpful, she’d drop the screeching and nervous laugh and be enrolled in “cool” lessons faster than she was just heard invoking “Noth Caylina,” with her newly re-polished Pennsylvanian, New Yorkish, Ohioan, Arkansan drawl.

Matthews further conflated the facts when suggested that there were three(3) people running for President.  While we acknowledge the corporate Media elite (pardon the expression) would be gleeful for such an opportunity, the simple fact remains that the only person currently running for president – is John McCain.  The Democratic opponent has yet to be determined.  While a three (3) person race might be the corporate journo-tainers’ equivalent of a big-game safari, fully stocked with drugged animals for them to shoot it remains impossible.  For the time being  we’ll continue to suffer the drive-by paint-ball currently passing for journalism. (We do concede that Matthews certainly does understand but struggles to present the facts cogently in fulfillment of his corporate obligation to provide a boat load of fans and carloads of manure in which to hit them.)

“Obama, has not wavered very far from his message of hope.”

Barack Obama is not running for President.  He’s running to be the Democratic nominee.  There is a considerable difference in the latitude provided under the pretense of each.  There is limited opportunity to challenge John McCain while he’s seeking the nomination.  His opponent is Hillary Clinton.  She’s chosen to go for the nomination in what we consider,  the politics of the darkest Democratic past.  Obama, has not wavered very far from his message of hope.

Hillary Clinton has mocked hope as a dementia of the masses, mere wishful thinking and promised hard fisted fighting.  Barack Obama has repeated that citizens will make the difference and their involvement, while Hillary has either mocked his words or opted to incorporate them as needed.  Hillary has a huge corporate machine and Obama has a political machine that ostensibly has risen from grass roots humble beginnings

“Hillary never fails to deliver a completely balanced assortment of demographically nutritious emotions …”

One Clinton characteristic that is amplified by the lengthened primary is that she is by far a reliable and predictable pit-bull of political ambition.  Her focus is unwavering, her ability to attack and fight is admirable.  Admirable in the sense of a guard-dog, but not particularly admirable in the sense of one who is required to pilot a ship of State. One that is admirable in the sense of performing the same trick in a reliable fashion, but not particularly admirable in the ability to represent sensibilities of the shamefully abused middle-class that has been all but stomped out of existence. Stomped that is by the destructive and distracting politics that the Clinton once shunned, but now embraces.

Her demeanor is reflective of the task.  In small community settings she is soft and even lachrymal, yet when counted on to deliver a forceful message she can be Stalinesque, particularly in her gesticulation  and hand gesturing to the Heavens with authority.  Sometimes, listening to her range of emotions, we are carried off in thought to fond memories of the High School Drama Club’s endless hours in preparation of Thurber Carnival.  If nothing else, a mixed bag of emotion as  Hillary never fails to deliver a completely balanced assortment of demographically nutritious emotions selected by the Madame and her Maitres De campaign.

“While their … political affiliation is the same, their leadership style  … from this point is likely to be incredibly divergent. “

Conversely, Obama is generally consistent, but unless he’s delivering a speech that will carry 27 news cycles, the Journo-tainers are crushed.  Take the recent PA Primary concession speech.  In what period of time, in what election has any candidate been criticized for a concession speech being lack-luster?  That’s precisely the consensus the corporate media agreed to this past week.  Hillary, was covered in laissez-faire splendor even though her speech contained at least a dozen factual misrepresentations.  Hey, we’re just paraphrasing Pat Buchanan or Howard Fineman, and it isn’t limited to them.  These are no longer solely Journo-tainers, they have become political theatre critics commenting on what we can only imagine they perceive as fiction.

Chris Matthews’ and his colleagues (with the exceptions of Eugene Robinson and Rachel Maddow)  seem unclear that most of America sees Barack Obama as running against Hillary Clinton for the nomination.  While their general political affiliation is the same, their leadership style and ultimate direction from this point is likely to be incredibly divergent.  The differences in health care is minimal, but these are health care programs that were meant to familiarize the public with theory.  There is no health plan yet. Certainly not one that’s ready to be published, yet they talk about the differences in Health plans that are nothing more than smoke right now and simply meant to pass election muster.  While we have great affection for the Edwardses, they aren’t helping right now.   There is a Democratic primary going on, and while time may be of the essence, they were instructed to sit this round out by the electorate.

McCain – Republican Royalists Re-visited

The Loquacious Liaison League & Loyal Lobbyists

“We fear McCain is much more dangerous than more of the same.”

Clearly the U.S. Constitution provides for the lobbying of Congress, and to that point, the mjgramm.jpgprotection of  lobbying seems to have mystically transformed itself into protection of lobbyists. For instance, one of architects of the type of unbridled financial deregulation that has indisputably led to our national mortgage disgrace is former Senator Phil Gramm (R-Texas) Co-Chair of McCain’s presidential campaign. Read Politico here.

fiorina.jpgAdd to that mix, conferees such as Carly Fiorina, who last was scene riding the rails out of Silicon Valley with a boxcar full of dough after causing a revolution at HP that set the company back 10 years.  Not only did she manage to alienate the talent at acquired Compaq, Inc., she pleaded for patience with her branded value-added integrators while her henchman began violating non-compete agreements and offering the integrators customers cheaper deals if they did business directly with HP.

And just to add to the list of lobbyists that performed hawking acts for EADS (European hoover.jpgAeronautic and Defence Co.) and now strategically placed among the McCain election campaign.  (A recent article dicussing McCain’s role in the Pentagon’s choice of Airbus to displace US Based Boeing to build the next military tanker plane here) and we can see a seond coming of the Royalists that could spin FDR in his grave. John McCain, while not as lucid as Herbert Hoover, does share his lack of tact, as evidenced by his Gregorian chant speaking style which is compounded by his lackluster thinking style.  We fear McCain is much more dangerous than more of the same.

Ridiculous Comparisons – McCain and Clinton Share the Stage

“… claimed to misspeak, as opposed to being mistaken”

If you want to see the real John McCain – search the Internet for dialogues that can’t bemccainhat.jpg rehearsed and speeches that aren’t written by others – so that you can get a glimpse of the his lack of information, knowledge of history and feel for governance.  For instance, recently, although soft-balled by the corporate media, John McCain equated the occupation and invasion of Iraq with the continued US presence in Japan, Korea and Germany.

We were dumbstruck with the lack of critical challenge from the cowering corporate media in this barely conscious allegory, instead of the obvious comparison to Viet Nam.  A war that was not victorious, an occupation that remained bloody and a political battle that empowered the military industrial complex pricisely the way President Eisenhower warned in his farewell address.

hillwideeyed.jpgIt is also our opinion that the Democratic Party’s lack of unity and Hillary Clinton’s recent symbolic embrace of her friend John McCain’s leadership, was a dangerous and offensive slap in the face not to her intended victim, Barack Obama, but to the Democratic party at large.  It is the Clinton Campaign’s ‘anything goes’ / ‘kitchen sink’ styled attack that reveals a similar danger in Hillary Clinton’s leadership style.

Recent gaffes about Bosnia and mistakingly promoting that her landing party was under attack or taking sniper fire during a trip in the late 90’s was characterized as misspeaking.hillarybosnia.jpg We beg to differ.  Misspeaking is when one mispronounces someone’s name, or attributes the wrong person to a quote.  Both the person and the quote exist in fact.  Misremembering is something quite different and should be subject to every scrutiny on this matter and other matters where she has claimed to misspeak, as opposed to being mistaken. Mistaken is a mild way of characterizing a little girl and flowers as sniper fire.

No one has suggested that she has to have combat experience to be able to capably be our Nation’s civilian Command-in-Chief.  We do think this was an attempt to further her claims of being tested.  While we understand that her campaign thought the tag-line would be a good tool against Obama’s relative newness on the National political scene, it has yet to be substantiated.

Eliot Spitzer : Do As I Say …

10 Mar 08, The Almost Daily Binx, San Jose, CA, by Binx101

We Thought We Couldn’t be Dumbfounded Anymore

… a conviction against public enemy and interior decorator Martha Stewart

spitzer.jpgOh yes, it’s a private matter when the nation is informed that one of its more vociferous Governors of one of the most recognized States in the World, has just gotten his cover … suffice it to say that his dalliances in procuring prostitutes is no longer a private affair. Spitzer would be best served by not talking about it again. However, how will he avoid being prosecuted under the same law he so meticulously and endlessly pursued in order to get a conviction against public enemy and interior decorator Martha Stewart?

It was quite clear that the then Attorney General of NY State knew she didn’t do anythingMartha S other than what her broker told her to do. She wouldn’t take a deal to put him in jail so they retaliated. Just the thing one needs for one’s resume when planning a run at the big house in Albany. He even trumped-up the charges further by adding Fraud because she took the step, under the law, to declare her innocence. For declaring her innocence, he charged her with Fraud. Legal scholars around the country were shaking their heads at this and the fact that Spitzer was using White Papers about the economic impact of Mutual Funds as the connection that would make Martha Stewart an insider … which she wasn’t.

Well …. what goes around …. comes around (pardon the insensitivity) and considering the possible solicitation and Mann Act charges, we are truly dumbfounded.

Just What the Extreme Right Needed

“… the Democratic Party is like riding the Cyclone at Coney Island”

cyclone.jpg

You know they will, since Hillary has received enthusiastic and apparently genuine support from Spitzer and the NY Dem Machine. What could she possibly say except shrug her shoulders like the rest of us. No doubt though, there will be jokes about phone calls with Hillary and Silda and the inevitable SNL sketch about the same.

The extreme Right can always count on a Democrat to hand them the help they need when they most need it. It never fails. We’re not energetic enough to post the montage of Democrats shooting themselves in the foot, or waiting until the last minute to tell their colleagues that they’re switching parties. Sometimes the Democratic Party is like riding the Cyclone at Coney Island.

Obama, Clinton – Media Hush on Rush Getting GOPers to Vote for Hill

Not Just Blowing Smoke

Limbaugh_smokePerhaps Republicans Followed Right Wing Talkers’ Pleas to Vote for Clinton. While the corporate media shadowing each of the candidates has been leaving no stone unturned when it comes to asking questions, however little attention has been given to what appears to be overwhelmingly disproportionate voting in many Texas counties. Open primaries leave the door ajar for strategies that can be misleading and the gorilla in the room is how could so many counties report NO Republican votes while reporting record Democratic votes?

Texas Caucus Results Support Right Wing Bump Theory

It appears that the Texas caucuses are yielding far different results than the open primary, which on the surface would suggest that the Clinton campaign is beholden to the GOP for her Primary victory Tuesday night. It would be reasonable to expect that in a general election, the bump would revert back to the Republican contender John McCain.

The corporate media has been very slow to provide details or a cogent assembly of the facts and the reality of what is apparently a very successful strategy for the GOP. Republicans are actually controlling the Democratic theme, because Democrats are so divided.

Radio talkers on both sides of the great divide, have received a lot of anecdotal informationthom_harmann regarding Republican Voters chosing to vote on the Democratic side during the primary, as well as Fox News, reporting over 1200 emails from GOP voters claiming they voted for Hillary – and that as two days ago according to radio-talker Thom Hartmann during today’s broadcast, as he played clips from a Fox News broadcast that he appeared earlier this week.

An Obama Victory Would End Some Democratic Franchises

New Dems want a fresh start, fresh face and fresh chance. Old timers can’t collect pay-backs and decades of quid pro quo from fresh faces and reform in the party. In many respects, an Obama victory very likely means the end of some political power for the very mature Democratic network. We’re not suggesting corruption, but we do suggest that many Democrats are supporting Hillary because of their vested interest in party affairs, not necessarily for the best candidate.

Obama Likely to Take Press Hits Through the Weekend

obama planeThey’re upset with him. He told them in so many words that they should do their job. What about vetting Hillary Clinton. Much of the corporate press was terribly insulted by his brusqueness during a recent flight, clips of which have been widely circulating. In fact, some of the Corporate media elites have implied he’ll pay the piper over the weekend when they hammer him for losing his smile and patience when they just wanted answers. Fair enough, generally speaking, but they have been asking the dumbest questions imaginable. How about those Hillary Clinton Tax Returns ??
