Campaigning yesterday Obama pulled his favorite card out of the deck and played it again with just a little twist this time. Who needs parody when you can just follow his campaign? He loves to portray himself the victim of that evil Republican attack machine by projecting what his followers are doing onto the GOP. This is from ABC's Political Punch blog via Hot Air.
“I know that I’m not your typical presidential candidate,” Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., told executives and employees of the Schott glass company Friday afternoon, “and I just want to be honest with you. I know that.”
“And I know that the temptation is to say, ‘You know what? …The guy hasn’t been there that long in Washington.,’ You know, ‘he’s got funny name,’ You know, ‘we’re not sure about him,’” Obama continued. “And that’s what the Republicans, when they say, ‘This isn’t about issues, it’s about personalities,’ what they’re really saying is, ‘We’re going to try to scare people about Barack. So we’re going to say that you know, maybe he’s got Muslim connections or we’re going to say that, you know, he hangs out with radicals or he’s not patriotic.’
The McCain team has certainly not done any of those things and I don't know of any conservative blogs that have except for the part about hanging out with radicals. He himself admitted that in one of his books and he does have muslim connections, Rhashid Kalidi, Nadmi Auchi and Edward Said among others not to mention Weather Underground bombers, Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn, or Pastors Jeremiah Wright and Michael Pfleger. So does he really want to go there?
Meanwhile his stooges are pursueing the storyline that Sarah Palin once attended a Pentecostal church with radical beliefs, gasp, they believe the Bible is the Word of God, oh noes. Do they really want to go there either with Pastor Wright waiting under Obama's bus? Yes the Assemblies of God is sorta radical but in a good way, I used to attend one when I was married and had to hold my laughter at times but nothing like the caustic teachings of Black Liberation theology at Obama's Trinity United. I never heard America being damned from the pulpit that's for sure.
Obama is a grievance monger that follows the teachings of that other community organizer marxist Saul Alinsky, everybody must be a victim of somebody elses wrong doings especially those evil corporations. He has to play on their fears and weaknesses that only he can bring solice to. He accuses the GOP of doing exactly what he is doing except the enemies we point to are very real, like the threats of radical Islam or a nuclear Iran not some made up strawman. Now that the thin veneer of empty platitudes about hope has been stripped from him revealing the true radically far left liberal that he really is all he has left is to lash out in anger fueled by the lies and hatred that has been the staple of the angry left for many decades and it is starting to show. It is not the right that is angry and bitter but the left as evidenced by the sheer vitriolic bile being spewed by virtually all the left wing bloggers and talking heads in the Daily Kos Media.
They know they cannot win on the power of their socialist agenda so all they have left is to attempt to tear down and demonize their opponents by spreading as many lies as they can and to keep repeating them until they hopefully gain some traction somewhere. Well I have news for them, it may have worked in the past but won't work today nor will it work in the future.
