WILLIAMS: [Obama and the Democrats] Running scared
The Washington Times ^ | September 2, 2012 | Armstrong Williams

Posted on 09/02/2012 1:54:14 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

After a well-executed Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., it is now time for the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.

The Democrats already are responding to the Republican convention and changing their speaker lineup. According to Donovan Slack of Politico, the Democrats are adding women and minorities to their roster, which I take to mean that the Republican convention was effective. Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice’s speech was presidential — it wouldn’t be hard to imagine her giving that if she were the nominee. Just as stirring was that of Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida. Some left-wing critics noted that the RNC stage was more diverse than the RNC delegation; I ask, would you prefer it the other way around?

I’m afraid that that’s the case with the Democratic National Convention. As political blogger Matt Yglesias tweeted, “DNC lineup exaggerates whiteness of the party relative to its actual voting base.”

One good way to judge the confidence of a campaign is to note how often it uses ad hominem attacks. The more ad hominems, the less confident they must be.

The Democrats’s schedule of speakers is interesting. Newark, N.J., Mayor Cory Booker is scheduled to speak on the first day of the convention. I will be interested to see the reaction to his speech, because Mr. Booker reminds me a lot of a younger President Obama. He is young, black and at least pays lip service to healing the partisan divide in this country. His speech will be a test of whether the country is jaded with this sanctimony yet.

Former President Jimmy Carter, to whom Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney subtly compared Mr. Obama during his acceptance speech, will not be present. Neither, tellingly, will Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton...

Remember ‘08?

Remember the MSM is still lying and covering up for him.

We’ll see the same illegal overseas and other contributions

We’ll see voter fraud ten times worse

We’ll see the race card pulled as never before (Romney is a sitting duck with his religion’s history of discrimination against blacks)

Don’t think the rats will give up their Communist coup without a struggle.

This will be the dirtiest fight in election history

We’ll be lucky if we EVER get rid of the Marxist/Muslim sob.

Seeing pics of Obama’s campaign stops from yesterday, it is evident he is stacking the audience shown behind him with predominately white supporters. As the article states.. this is not the majority of his base.

Bill Clinton is, despite his sins, highly popular with women.

Will the women who want him, want HIM, that is, be surprised as to how old and decrepit he looks these days? Do they think Viagra will do the job?

Barrack Obama could well have become an outstanding evantelist for our creator, he Lord God Almighty, had he been introduced to Him as a young person. For God is our Heavenly Father, Who loves us unconfditionally, and laid down His rules for a arigahteous life in no uncertain terms, which have never changed to this very day.

But, instead, Satan filled that hungry spot which exists hin each one of us with lies, so now this man is Satan’s evangelist.

The good news is there is still time for Obma to see the Light.

So many Conservatives are getting over confident about winning this thing.

This is something we cannot afford to do.

We must fight harder than we have ever fought before.

Never become over confident.

Never let up.

No. The Lord gave us free will. We all make our own choices.

But I see what you mean. Judas had to betray Jesus in order that He, Jesus, suffer and die to pay for our sins, as prophesized. But then, Judas did it for 30 pieces of silver, so he did make that decision himself.

This guy hates the truth, so he will never see the light. The greatest examples of sudden conversion usually feature a person ardently searching for the truth. St. Paul would be the archetype example of a zealot opposed to Jesus and his disciples that literally saw the light. I don’t know of any example of a dictator or really powerful, evil man changing his ways and giving testimony of his conversion to Christ. Even Constantine did not convert until his deathbed, continued to worship Apollo and engaged in political assassinations. Most of the Christian kings throughout history invoked their piety and used the Church as a means to consolidate political control over the people and usurping lords.

A gigantic and un-pollable (sort of a Wilder effect) factor will be the non-black voter's being over-saturated with all this “discrimination against blacks” rhetoric.

This year the Republicans got former Democratic congressman Artur Davis of Alabama, and the Democrats have former Florida Republican Gov. Charlie Crist, who is much better than Mr. Davis.

Charlie Crist is in no way better than Artur Davis. Davis was a true-believer democrat who became disillusioned by the failures of the Obama administration. Crist is a pure, out-for-himself politician of no particular stripe who will dock his boat in whichever political camp he feels will advance his own agenda.

Yeah. And there is still time for my wife to let me have a hot 30 year old live in mistress. Which, in terms of the odds, is more likely than the Kenyan having an epiphany.

His boat isn't the only thing he will dock anywhere it will be accepted.

Saul was a ruthless tax collector before the Lord sruck him blind on the road to Damascus. Who knows what the Lord will have to do get Obama’s artention? Miracles happen on a daily basis, but most people do not realize it. The miracle was that a treacherous Saul turned into Paul, who hgave the world he prolific testimony of Jesus Christ in the Holy bible.

Matthew was the tax collector, not Saul. Saul was a tentmaker by trade and a Pharisee by training. I don’t think any Pharisee would have lowered himself to collect taxes for the hated Roman occupiers. (Whenever tax collectors are mentioned, it’s clear they are considered scum.)

Not a big deal. We all make little mistakes like that. 99% of what's in the New Testament about St. Paul is about after his conversion--his prior life gets very little attention.

St. Peter did some free-lance tax-collecting on behalf of himself and Jesus (see Matthew 17.24-27: St. Peter catches a fish and finds a stater in its mouth with which to pay the two-drachma temple tax)
