Posted on 09/30/2012 10:41:05 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Here comes the Washington Post today, claiming that the reason Obama could lose the election is racism.
I want to tell you a story about what it was like working in a consulting firm here in Chicago. We had a very nasty VP at the firm who was the old school, screaming and yelling type; the guy was a real ogre. The firm would pitch to about three big clients a month in deals that would be 100 million+ and would typically take several months of research to put together all the proposals and materials to make a successful bid for the job. There was a lot of lobbying involved regarding the decision-makers across the table who would decide if our firm would land the deal or not. In a lot of ways, it was like a political campaign because we were one candidate out of a handful who wanted to be hired for these jobs.
I could always tell if we were going to land an account by how crazy that one VP would be in the lead up to the final meeting that would determine whether the firm was hired or not. If he felt the account slipping away, that VP would resort to all sorts of nastiness in the last few weeks to try whatever he could to not so much make the case for our firm but to kind of scorch the Earth and make weird threats if we didnt get our way. There was general nastiness in the office, screaming and yelling, open hostility amongst the big bosses, and tons of excuse-making so that the angry VP wouldnt take any of the blame for the failure (though, to be honest, I think we lost a lot of these deals just because people didnt want to have to work with this ogre for the next several years).
When I look at the corrupt, vintage media I actually have a sense of deja vu: the way they behave towards Obama and this election is very much like how that VP would act when he knew we were losing an account. I think dragging out racism as the reason people dont support Obama is only 20% about trying to motivate the most low-information of black voters to turnout on election day to stop the racists from preventing Obamas second term; 80% of the reason the Washington Post is trotting out this old canard is because they are laying the groundwork to excuse away an Obama loss. This is not something theyd be doing if they really expected him to win. What would be the point?
If Obama was really cruising to a victory the news would look a lot like the interoffice memos from when my old firm would know it was close to sealing a very big deal. There is no joy in the corrupt media these days. There is nothing like the 2008 campaign days when the newscasters were all euphoric and waxing about Hope and Change and singing high hosannas to Obama on the air. Thats all been replaced by a brittle ugliness on the part of the people delivering the news that is laced with accusations of racism before-the-fact to explain away the loss thats coming for The One.
I hope you can see this and can pick up on the fact that despite all their bluster, the Obama acolytes in the corrupt, vintage media are very much behaving like people who expect Obama to lose though they very much want him to win. Theyre desperately trying to salvage his bid for reelection by throwing everything theyve got at us. Its going to get so crazy and nasty, folks. I got out of the consulting business here in Chicago because I just couldnt take the emotional terrorism of working in a firm where every losing bid for a project was accompanied by several weeks of open hostility and excuses-making or blame-shifting.
This is what we are going to see on the national stage for the next five weeks. It is going to be brutal.
Yesterday, my friend Penny Arcade visited Chicago for something and Justin and I got to spend some time with her out and about around town. We decided to wear our matching Romney shirts the ones that Justin designed and Penny had made through that OOshirts.com site. Its just a simple shirt with no text and a pic of Romney/Ryan together on the front. Justin and I met Penny at the Chicago Red Line stop, which just happens to be in front of a McDonalds where a lot of angry, crazy people tend to hang out and mutter things. It had been a while since Id been down to that particular Red Line station so I completely forgot about the congregation of mutterers and lunatics that assemble there. In retrospect it was not the best place to meet someone who had just flown in from California but it was the closest spot to the Chick-Fil-A thats downtown (which is where we wanted to have lunch to support a local business that is being harassed by an Alderman here in Chicago who needs to score points with gay voters and lefties who think its appropriate for an Alderman to wage jihad against small businesses).
I wouldnt say I particularly go LOOKING for trouble in life but Im just not all that scared of finding it. Justin felt uncomfortable waiting for Penny to emerge from the subway station because he and I had on our Romney/Ryan shirts and the majority of the mutterers in front of that McDonalds were black and he thought theyd start shouting things at us or would try to physically harm us because we were not supporting Obama. Ive actually been wearing these Romney/Ryan shirts everywhere I go for the last few weeks now and I have not had a single bad thing said to me about it. This is night and day opposite of what happened in 2008 where I couldnt get more than 30 feet out my front door before someone in my neighborhood would shout something nasty at me for supporting McCain/Palin. Whatever psychotic zeal people had for Obama four years ago is completely gone and even in Chicago his advocates and acolytes just cant muster the same old passion to get in the faces of those who dont belong to his cult.
Well, no one said a damn word to us even in the heart of Chicago, in a mob of squabbling derelicts and street people whod sporadically shout at one another about something or another. While we were waiting for Penny, we saw a few disagreements break out amongst the street people for one thing or another mostly turf battles for spots on the sidewalk to panhandle but not a single nasty remark to Justin or me regarding our shirts. When Penny joined us, I half-expected there to be shouting as we were leaving, because this is classic for Obama supporters (to wait until you are leaving and your back is turned and they feel more emboldened). But, no, not a peep.
I know people clearly SAW the shirts because they are hard to miss. Justin did notice people staring every now and again and hed say they were obviously trying to process what they were seeing: Romney/Ryan supporters walking around in downtown Chicago. Since there were three of us together, it looked like we were on our way to some event, or possibly just had an event. Some of the gawkers thought it was odd to see us out on the streets of Chicago but not a single person screamed or yelled or even took a nasty jab.
Penny wanted to see Boystown so after lunch we took her up north and showed her around and we didnt get a single nasty remark or even so much as a cross look up there. This is 100% different from 2008 where Id routinely be pushed and shoved and spat-at for openly supporting McCain/Palin.
This is something that the Eeyores and Tokyo Roses out there in conservative ranks arent factoring in when they write about how the tee-vee says Obama is winning! that win in 2008 came on the back of a relentless and almost religious zeal for electing the first black president. Anyone who tried to stand in the way of that just had to be destroyed. Not stopped, but DESTROYED. Those were the marching orders for Obama supporters just four years ago. Here in 2012, these same people cant even muster a cross word for people openly supporting Romney/Ryan. They just dont have the enthusiasm they did before.
There is no way this will not translate to the ballot box in November. A great many Obama voters from four years ago just dont care anymore. While they wont be voting Republican I have a feeling a lot of these people just wont be voting, period. The Obama cult is rooted in Chicago and if those most likely to be cultists arent in seek and destroy mode on his behalf this close to the election, then hes just not going to deliver anywhere near the numbers he brought to the polls in 2008.
Please remember Eeyores and Tokyo Roses: all of the polls the corrupt, vintage media cites showing Obama leads assume he will have even greater voter turnout on his behalf this year than he did when he was elected the first time. What I am seeing on the ground and hearing about in other states just doesnt support that line of thinking anecdotally.
I think the biggest problem a lot of people have when it comes to politics is that they assume the tee-vee knows so much more than they do. You can learn more about whats going on in the world just by getting off the couch and walking around your city and interacting with people. The ones reporting the news on the tee-vee rarely leave their studios or cushy offices; they have no idea what regular people are thinking, saying, or doing on the ground.
Im sure Id be ripped to shreds if I walked into MSNBC headquarters in my Romney/Ryan gear but I wouldnt hear a bad thing said to me from anyone I passed on the street if I walked all the way from downtown Chicago to Manhattan to get there. So, it looks to me like the last Obama zealots are working in the corrupt vintage media and are not reflective of what actual people on the ground feel about the man.
Are you having similar experiences?
About Obama and his golfing.
I want to highlight today an article thats up at Ace of Spades: Why Doesnt Obama Take More of an Interest in Golf?
This is just hilarious to me, because its an example of straight people being as blind as bats.
So, in the article, the writer (a straight conservative male) wonders why Obama doesnt talk about golf more, show an interest in the Ryder Cup, or generally act like someone who plays golf as much as he does. The thinking is that this is abnormal, since the last president to play golf as often as Obama (Bill Clinton) would go on about the game to no end but Obama seems to know little about golf despite playing it much more than Clinton.
The reason for this is simple: hes not really playing golf, folks. Golf is a cover for him getting out of the White House and heading to private clubs with three guys he likes and getting up to all sorts of other things.
I most often hear that Obamas doing drugs when hes supposedly golfing and this is happening either in the locker room or in private rooms that the clubs would make available to him. Once hes outside of camera range on the links, he could be doing drugs openly in the golf cart too. What a great place for him to do this, with a few male friends, and have some privacy outside of the White House.
I also think hes probably engaging in sexual acts in the steam room and sauna at those country clubs. Those locker rooms are plush and very posh, so they might even have the big jacuzzi tubs that fit a half dozen naked guys. Obama has a few regular golfing buddies that appear to be an odd cast of characters for a sitting US President to be golfing so much with. Some of them are very young white guys who work in the press office and others like Bobby Titcombe are men Obamas age who have been arrested for soliciting sex from male prostitutes. None of these people are the equivalent of a Vernon Jordan the Washington power broker whod often golf with President Clinton. Back in the Clinton days, the presidential golfing foursomes would include governors, Senators, royalty, and Cabinet members.
With Obama, its twenty-something males and guys who have been busted for soliciting male prostitutes. This is very, very strange and most conservatives are scared to talk about any of it. The corrupt, vintage media is loathe to talk about any of it.
But there are a great many sexcapades that happen in exclusive, expensive, private clubs and golf course locker rooms. Obama used to engage in this sort of behavior when he was a member of the East Bank Club here in Chicago before he became president. This is behavior he engaged in when he was a state senator in Illinois and still had a low enough profile to go to bathhouses like Mans Country for sex. Just because Obama is now too famous to ever go to a low-rent bathhouse again does not mean he still doesnt enjoy that sort of sexual experience.
Hes just getting his kicks in a new way by going golfing so much.
The action for him is just not on the links but with whatever kink he gets up to in the wet steam and sauna area or wherever he and his golfing buddies can do drugs together.
For whatever reason, there are a lot of straight people out there who have trouble accepting the reality that the current President of the United States is a gay man who regularly does drugs and engages in sex with other men since in the past bad behavior like this was limited to guys like Kennedy whod be womanizing while they were drugging. Newsweek didnt tell you the half of it when they declared Obama the first gay president.
All the clues are there if you care to piece them together. You dont need my help in doing that.
Even that writer at Ace of Spades thought Obamas golfing behavior was odd but he just didnt put the pieces together to explain WHY it was so odd. Well, just ask yourself WHO Obama keeps going out golfing with how long is he gone for how does he look en route to the golfing and how does he look afterwards (hint: they NEVER, ever show him or let him speak anywhere near a camera AFTER the golfing trips) and what a lot of married supposedly straight men actually get up to in locker rooms of very pricy clubs when they say theyre just spending some time with the guys.
This is classic down low club behavior.
Its just hilarious that straight male conservatives are oblivious to it in many cases.
This is an Open Thread so whats on your mind today?
What are people talking about in your part of the country?
How will your city and state vote in the upcoming election?
Knock yerselves out!
Christian, White, family man, business owner, gun owning conservative former military and this magic negro punk calls me unpatriotic, racist and a securtiy threat?
Fine, I’m racist and I hope to hell this marxist punk goes down and hard.
Can you imagine him going off to live happily ever after with shelly in Hawaii after an ass whoopin?
Sure they are.
I think there are too many black/white couples, friends. etc., to
say there is that much racism.
That’s all they got left to use to keep blacks under their power.
Divide and conquer.
The best example of “white racism” is Mia Love in Utah. She is of Haitian decent, very conservative, Mormon, and very very very black. She will win this congressional race. The latest poll shows her 51% to 36% for her Democrat opponent.
Click on this link for a bio on Mia Love. It was in the Huffington Post and surprisingly is very fair. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/28/mia-love-rnc-speech_n_1835839.html
Utah is 1.27% black. It sure puzzles me why all those “white racists” are voting for her. Could it be that the party of racism, division, hate mongering, politics of envy is the Democrat party? I think it is!
Don't take the liberal's bait. Race Bait or any other kind.
Don't engage them on the "facts" or issues they bring up until you vet them. Who are they? What is their credibility? Who pays them and who has paid them? Unless they can prove that they are not inveterate liars, paid operatives and aren't nuttier than squirrel poop based on their past history there is no reason to discuss anything with them that they bring up. The press is the enemy and should be treated accordingly.
I guess Americans were less racist four years ago by voting the chair in. Now Americans are more racist because they are going to vote the chair out. Does that mean that the chair made Americans more racist?
They yell racism to vote him into office, and will still be yelling racism if he is voted out of office, can’t win from losing.... IGNORE THEM..
YES! Ignore them.
They are the ones inciting violence.
Don’t give it to them.
I love these Hillbuzz guys.
Typical leftist drivel!
If they cannot argue their case with facts and logic, they resort to accusations of “racism.”
It is hogwash that should be ignored. In fact, I would go so far to say that if the leftist scum are calling us racists, then we are doing the right thing!
By the way, I was for Herman Cain when he was still running and I also think that Allen West is potential presidential material as well. He is a man of substance who just happens to be black.
Well, Obama is actually bi-racial, right? And I don't like and didn't vote for his WHITE half either. Which half did you vote for? That usually shuts them up.
It’s true. He can’t get elected President because he is black.
It’s too late for gloves IMO
The obvious answer is that it was Obama's performance that convinced all of these people to become racists.
First, thanks for posting this.
“You can learn more about whats going on in the world just by getting off the couch and walking around your city and interacting with people. “
I don’t think this can be posted too much. YOU are the media. YOU see what’s going on right in front of you, on your street, in your neighborhood, at your city council meeting. YOU know what the REAL news is!
Around here there are local and state republican signs, no dim signs and no bumper stickers. We have a Romney/Ryan sign but my husband lost it somewhere and when we find it will put it up.
I went to a college football game last night in a neighboring town it was the same.
I am expecting to see more R/R signs because the guy who gave us ours ordered a bunch and he is giving them to people to put up.
Complete BS as to racism n this election. I’m white and would vote for Allen West over Romney if he were running based on his character, experience, and backbone alone.
My comment is- I love Hillbuzz...always have since the 2008 nightmare- it is one of the sites I go to every 2-3 days just because it is so funny, informative and thoughtful.
Does Kevin Dujan have security guards?
