Skip to comments.Should Barak and Michelle Obama be worried?
Posted on 02/20/2008 8:40:01 AM PST by rface
Up until now the Democrat Primaries have been more a source of amusement than a cause for concern. I have watched the blooming of Hillarys inevitability wilt beneath the hot rhetoric of Obamas win after win after win, and I have enjoyed the circus. I have watched Bills temper flare and I have imagined the behind the scenes raging of a pre-ordained President unable to meet her rendezvous with destiny. I have witnessed the enthusiasm of Hillary For President! fanatics fade away into an almost shamed silence. But I remember the ruthless politics of the Clinton White House. I remember the personal destruction of Katherine Willey, Paula Jones, Gennifer Flowers and Monica. These women paid a price for being a political obstacle .. and there were many other women who paid a similar price.
Now I also remember others who paid a price for standing in the path of the Clinton Political Borg. Vincent Foster knows what I am thinking. The Branch Davidians in Waco, Texas got in the Clintons way. Michelle and Barak Obama are now standing squarely in defiance to the ambitions of Bill and Hillary. I wonder if what I am thinking has ever crossed the minds of either Bill or Hillary? Maybe Hillary could try to blame the Haters of the Right, like Bill tried to do with the Oklahoma City bombing
but I suspect the Clinton fingerprints would be far too evident.
There’s a reason Obama has a bigger security detail than Dubya. But I don’t think it’s because of Hillary.
You forgot Ron Brown.
The reason why I think this isnt going to go away, unless she apologizes quickly, is because it plays into a stereotype about the left wing of the Democratic Party, that it blames America first, that they dont see the greatness of America, and it really makes me wonder if somebody who is roughly about Barack and Michelles age, what country she grew up in.
I mean, I was proud of America when we won the Cold War and the Berlin Wall fell and the Soviet Union disintegrated. I was proud when we expelled Saddam Hussein from Kuwait. I was proud when we liberated 50 million people from the Taliban of Saddam Hussein. I was proud when we provided humanitarian aid to the victims of an earthquake in Iran and to a tsunami in Asia.
I think the other thing it does is it plays into this weakness thats developing that the Obama candidacy is sort of a modern political equivalent of Beatle mania rather than a legitimate aspiration to be commander-in-chief.
Ralph Reed, the former Georgia GOP chairman:
In all liklihood, yes.
Remember, most of the hardcore left loves Hillary and Obama. Right now, they just love Obama more.
I cannot imagine that happening.
yes - I forgot.....now I remember
You said it best!
“I think the other thing it does is it plays into this weakness thats developing that the Obama candidacy is sort of a modern political equivalent of Beatle mania rather than a legitimate aspiration to be commander-in-chief.
All Air and no stuff. Listening to his speech last night on Fox (barf) he said nothing other then we have a lot of costly ideas and you will have to pay for them. Everything was give the people more baubles and we will have to raise taxes. “Free Health care just like congress gets”
As for the JFK comparison, I would say any given JFK speech had more substance than all of Obama's appearances put together.
I’m not worried about Obama. If he’s escaped Sharia law for allegedly becoming an apostate to the Religion of Peace, he’s safe from Arkancide.
Should they be worried? Yep. This Clinton thug is facing trial and was caught with explosives:
I agree. Obama would be crazy to have a power hungry couple around him plotting his layout at Ft Marcy Park.
I cannot imagine that happening.
And I can't imagine a more dangerous position for Obama to be in.
Me either. It's because of all those middle aged, white, NRA card carrying right-wing-religious extremists out there waiting with the sheets and the ropes. Unfortunately, that's just the way those "open minded" progressives think. Their minds are so narrow you could use them as letter openers. THEY think that means they're sharp. **sigh**
Remember the term “Arkancide”? I would put NOTHING past the Clintons. They are capable of anything.
The klintoons have bodies stacked around them like cord wood.

I cannot imagine anyone would want her for veep, especially since a vice president is a “heartbeat” (or lack thereof) from the Presidency.
The next time that they fly, the Obamas should consider including a parachute in their carry-ons :)
Let's also hope that we're able to force the sun to shine on his actual beliefs and proposals.
Anyone who swoons every time he utters the word “change” isn’t concerned about substance anyway.
Keep talking like that and what makes you think she won't be coming after you?
The Mother of all Train Wrecks. Coming to a TV near you. Getcher popcorn ready.
Or one of those pods, like in 'Escape From New York'. Of course, there's only one pod, and it only holds one person.
Hillary wants badly to be on the top of the ticket.
Shouldn’t this be in the ‘homosexual agenda’ catagory ??
The short answer is yes. The long answer is hell yes.
no, obama and michele should not be worried period.
Their minds are so narrow that they get depth perception looking through keyholes.
Being the president with a Clinton as VP, that is the most dangerous job in the world
I think Hillary's had her fill of playing second fiddle to a man.
If I could speak to Obama I would tell him to get a good, sound advisor as VP. hillllereee would try and upstage him at every turn. She would be a cloud over his head and don’t forget the old man willie...he’d be on the scene too dillusioned and thinking he was prez again.
No, a new beginning, change and a fresh start means a new, fresh face for the VP slot.
Maybe we should just call him cotton pickin’ candy.
Is Ted Sorensen looking for a job? He made a silk purse out of a sows ear once before.
Hey, get the message, Obama/magical myster tour heheh, works for me, but so nice to see this cover:)
Hillary has “double secret super delegates” in her pocket and may still be crowned at the convention even if she doesn’t have the support of popular vote.
And she could always be seated as the running mate. The preying mantis who bites off her mate’s head after climax/victory.
The Clintons live for the power. They don’t take NO very well.
I will add that any attempt on Barrack Obama’s life would be VERY bad for this country. His death would be that of another “rising RFK”, another “MLK”, another Rodney King verdict.
Even just an underhanded party betrayal where the bosses would appoint Hillary over Obama at the convention could lead to a 1968 (Chicago or Paris) series of riots.
I will be voting for the black man in this presidential election but unfortunately Alan Keyes will not be getting the nomination of my party. And he won’t get the VP nod either. He should AT LEAST be permitted to speak at the convention.
“They should worry, I think, because Obama is a very beatable candidate in the general election. Shamelessly liberal and absurdly inexperienced.”
Obama was able to knock off Hillary because he’s the same kind of opportunist. The Dems have swollen their ranks with newly registered “Youth” voters. There is a very good reason most youths aren’t very accomplished, they’re not very experienced, and as I think the rise of Obama shows, they can be easily led.
I’m not expecting Obamas wonderful numbers to hold up much more than a couple of months after Hillary bows out. Too much Preparation not enough H.
Change is NOT a good thing when the wrong things are being changed or the right things are being changed with the wrong solutions.
Barry Obama’s wife said how much better she feels about this country now that her husband is considered a viable presidential candidate.
Attending Princeton didn’t make her feel that she could do ANYTHING in this country?
I could not imagine Clinton riding the OKC boming tragedy to easy re-election in 1995 either. But that is exactly what happened.
No he shouldn’t be worried, we should be worried. This man is dangerous!
A note on my post 38: Just heard Rush say that Sorenson is an adviser to Obama.
“Is Ted Sorensen looking for a job? He made a silk purse out of a sows ear once before.”
I don’t care who you are, that right there is funny!
Glad you liked it.
Let's just say there lives are going to be interesting from this point onwards.
