It Is Over [Kudlow says: Hillary! is done]
corner.nationalreview.com ^ | 2-20-8 | Larry Kudlow

Posted on 02/19/2008 10:29:59 PM PST by Petronski

Please allow me a dose of hardened market realism concerning Obama's landslide victory in Wisconsin. The race is over. Hillary is finished. The Clinton Restoration is over.

President Bill Clinton's political invincibility is over. Hillary's electability is over. Obama got to the far Left faster than she did. He out organized her in the precincts. He out fundraised her. He out speechified her. He out-hustled her. He out-dressed her. He out-presidentialed her. He outdid her and he outbid her for votes, one promised government check at a time.

A 15-point margin in Wisconsin is incredible. Wisconsin is a lot like Ohio except for the wacko ultra-Left Madison college population, which is even worse that Columbus's Ohio State. But there are so many campuses in Ohio that will go for Obama that it is no matter. Think faculty voters, grimly determined for a left-wing takeover of America " from the bottom up" to use the former Saul Alinsky community organizer's phrase. As goes Wisconsin, so goes Ohio.

I see two scenarios: Obama love spun by the media sweeps him into office, and McCain's hammering gets Obama to reveal he's got zero substance and a commie heart.

I fear the first is the one which will prove true.

While the thought of an Obama Presidency repulses me. The thought of Hillary winning anything, even the primaries, makes me wretch.

The question is only this....

Does Clinton Inc. have some really dirty dirt on Obama ....

...and this....

...do they have the guts to use it IF they do?

I think as an empty suit obama will actually be over cautious and will not do anything major.

If Hillary loses Ohio, even if she wins Texas, she is done. I’m not counting her out just yet.

Tasty stuff is right, and I love reading it.

However, to paraphrase Rush...I won’t believe she’s been defeated until a house drops on her, and her feet roll up.

Too, if this all turns out to be true, we are left with another Marxist, one who is potentially more dangerous.

I have heard that, early on, the DNC may have floated (no pun intended) Obama as a foil to make Hillary appear more moderate, and that this strategy backfired. If true, that’s funny.

Did you hear his speech tonight? It was not the speech of a cautious man. It was the speech of a revolutionary.

Conservatives are foolish to underestimate the danger of an Obama presidency.

This is Hillary. Guts? She’s the closest thing to a viper without the scales. Honestly, I think she would do anything at all if she could get away with it. Most likely, though, is she’ll self destruct in a very self-serving and quite hilarious way.

People I trust say that Obama will be harder to beat than Hillary! would have been.

Maybe I should be able to hold out for delayed gratification—but I just couldn’t be anything but thrilled to see Hillary! crashing and burning in the primaries—even if there’s a greater danger that Obama can beat McCain.

My gut feeling to those questions is “yes and YES”.

And we will be seeing it pretty soon.

If I had to guess it will probably be a picture of a younger Obama in Muslim skullcap at a Mosque in Indonesia. Nasty stuff, and they will have to make sure their fingerprints aren’t detected, but the Muslim card is about the only one they haven’t played yet.

How will the Klintons die? Will there be a mushroom cloud? Or a mass epidemic of rat job loss?

I wasn’t sure, over the years, that we’d kill her, but once Texas does, (and Ohio) it’s time for celebration fireworks!

I’m so happy.

If you believe that, you need to start listening to him.

I believe he will be VERY active, should he win.

And the Dem congress will cover for him, support him, and the media will...well, you know the rest.

It all depends on the turnout/ If the Pubs don’t
get galvanized beyond their flaccid appearances in prumaries thus far, and sober up and start creating “turnout” , we could have a popular vote route by Obama, and you know how history repeats itself, and how that could be played by the MSM, regardless , once again, of how our unrevised Electoral College still works.

He won't be able to handle this with his ego. I predict a pattern of self destruction and some bitter retribution.

Yes, the primary numbers point towards a massive Dem win.

When you have the standard FR position being not voting or going third party, I don't see much hope for McCain.

How about an old drug buddy who sold drugs with Obama?

Old girlfriend that Barry got pregnant and pressured to have an abortion?

Remember how they tried to sandbag Clarance Thomas with that last second slimehag Anita Hill? Could we see that kind of ation again?

Two thoughts, on that:

1) Think back on the 900 FBI files. When did that happen, early- to mid-90’s? My calculation is that She Who Must Not Be Named obtained the files for all sitting Congressmembers at the time (535), major players in the DNC (call it 100+), a few of her more dangerous foes in the GOP (maybe another 100+), and the balance of 165 for entrenched members of the Federal bureaucracy, plus holdovers from the Arkansas days and other key figures (Jesse/Al, the MSM magnates, etc.)

When did Barak Husayn ibn Mahomet come on the political scene? Late 90’s, perhaps? My guess is, She did NOT get his file. As a result, She and the flying monkeys have been filling the air with random shotgun blasts, hoping that something strikes.

2) I have NO DOUBT in my mind that, should She find something absolutely destructive towards him, She would not hesitate to use it. As I’ve posted elsewhere, She is The Anointed One. The WH was promised to her from the very beginning, for enduring William the Impeached all these years; their faux marriage, for example. Barack Husayn ibn Mahomet was and is a stalking horse, designed to give her WH bid credibility so that no one can claim She is “selected not elected.”

The problem is, he has evolved beyond his role. He is Frankenstein’s monster, a political creation of a mad scientist; and something has gone horribly wrong in the lab. This whole O-basm is utterly off-script, and the Clinton machine will eventually do what they do best: destroy all opposition, by any means available.

I think the more apt allusion is Obama as Dorothy throwing the pail of water on her. "Oh what a world! What a world! Who would have thought that some little girl like you could destroy my beautiful wickedness."

Perfect!

He’s partaken of the Alinsky kool-aid, too.

oh you wish....all it takes is for him to appoint a few dozen or hundreds of leftist Rat defending judges, a few more activist cabinent members, a few unpatriotic generals .

do people realize what dire straits we are in?....

if we don't keep the white house and regain at least one of the houses we are going to sink really really low...

don't forget what a Barry Bama presidency would do....it would propel every leftist idea in every state and local area......eg...controlling your house's heat....mandating vaccines for young girls...taking our God off of our money, etc....

national health care?...in a blink of an eye....

more taxation for we middle class?...you bet...because if you have ANY asset, you'll be considered rich....

Wisconsin is a lot like Ohio except for the wacko ultra-Left Madison college population, which is even worse that Columbus's Ohio State.

I should take exception with that since I still teach a few classes at OSU, but sadly, it's accurate---especially among (no, not the faculty or students) the administrators! Our last President, Karen Holbrook, was an absolute PC disaster and she appointed all these feminazis to deanships, etc.

Now all this is speculation, and you maybe right and it could be wishful thinking on my part, however...Remember when clinton campaigned? He was a rock star like obama. He loved the campaign but when it came to actually being president 18 months later he would take his limo out on the streets and stop it to shake peoples hands and campaign.

This could be the way he is, but who knows. Unfortunatley we conservatives are the only loosers in this whole campaign.
