NYT: Obama to dispatch female surrogates (sends women to do his fighting)
MSNBC/NY TIMES ^ | 9/5/2008 | PATRICK HEALY and JEFF ZELENY

Posted on 09/05/2008 5:32:34 AM PDT by teddyballgame

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Senator Barack Obama will increasingly lean on prominent Democratic women to undercut Gov. Sarah Palin and Senator John McCain , dispatching Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton to Florida on Monday and creating a rapid-response team to deploy female surrogates to battleground states, Obama advisers said on Thursday.

Mrs. Clinton’s campaign event in Florida, her first for Mr. Obama since the Democratic convention last month, will include a forceful response to the searing attacks and fresh burst of energy that Ms. Palin injected into the race with her convention speech on Wednesday night, Obama aides said.

The pantsuit brigade won’t be able to trump Palin. And I look forward to their failed attempts.

Further evidence that the Democrats, and Obama in particular, don't get it.

I'm placing 4-1 odds that Hillary actually appears wearing a dress or skirt at some point in the next week.

Female liberal democrats like Barbara Boxer do not appeal to the swing voter the way that Palin does. That’s something these idiots on the left never understand.
They will look shrill (yes that’s right), and Sarah will be gracious and confident.

Hillary is perfect. She is exactly the reminder women need to see how the Democrat Party will treat them. Will Obama isn’t concerned with the HIllary voters, and the disrespected Hillary at every turn, now he NEEDS HER HELP.

A new day, a new LOW for Democrats.

I hope some of them come here. I would attend and make a show of turning my back on them.

All of these ladies are like that whining loser Kathleen Blanco.

The bunch who want respect by virtue of being female instead of the women that earn respect for competence.

The insertion of Sarah Palin throws the entire Clinton game plan off.

Clinton may have hoped for a McCain win, and then run in 2012. But if McCain wins, she'll have to run against incumbent Palin.

OTOH, if Obama wins, she has to run against incumbent Obama.

My opinion, she's going to do all she can to help Obama win, and hope that he does a bad job if he wins.

I found a headline last night on FR that was simply... well, typical.

Something about Palin’s speech not making any headway with “women”.

They polled

EMILY’S LIST MEMBERS

to come to their headline conclusion.

What was funny was that even among such hardcore feminazi baby killers, 41% were voting McCain/Palin.

I look forward to the country seeing the contrast between Gov. Palin and the lefty Pelosi types.

Putting it simply, they can't compete. They won't be able to hide their bitchy whiny petty selves when up against a natural, self made woman.

The contrast will be self-evident. The more the Dems trot out these feminist hags, the better Palin looks and sounds.

Eww...

And yet, I can imagine Sarah, when confronted with the spectre of Shrillary, to gush sweetly, "Oh, I've been an admirer of Mrs. Clinton ever since I was a little girl!"

She’s just doing this to get him to keep his promise of helping her pay off her campaign debt,.
Florida isn’t going to for Obama this election, and that’s why Hillary probably agreed to go there and “help” him.

Sarah p’s them off just by BEING who she is.

She doesn’t have to say a thing.

Simply the way she lives her life condemns the behaviors and beliefs of the left.

Their reaction verifies CS Lewis’ assertion that everyone has the same sense of right and wrong, just some people suppress theirs. And they still have a conscience that tells them that they are wrong, and the example they see is right.

Sending Hillary to do his hatchet work is probably not too smart, considering what she and Slick really think about him.

Remember when Bill Clinton was in all of his Monica trouble as President and they got Buddy the dog. Then mysteriously about two months after Clinton leaves office, Buddy gets killed..... Arkancide. No, this baby would be better off somewhere else.

Janet Napolitano of Arizona and Kathleen Sebelius of Kansas.

Well, well, well. So, he thinks that sending Hillary, who along with Bill, hates this man so badly, they are working behind the scenes to insure he loses, will help him? It will only remind the Hillary devotees of their pain. And to top it off he sends two unknown Govs; one dyke and one feminazi?

Whassup? Are Rosie O'Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg too busy to jump in and help out? Where's Oprah? Off having a "religious encounter of the 5th Dimension"? And, what about Michelle, the counterpart to Aunt Esther on "Sanford and Son"?

Oh yeah; this man has plenty of surrogate "ladies" with whom the American woman can identify with. Uh huh.

(Sends women to do his fighting)

This is a BRILLIANT line and must be repeated everywhere, as often as possible.

Obama sends women to do his fighting for him, because he’s too afraid of Palin.

But he says he can hold his own with Putin, Chavez, and Ahmadinejad.

And yesterday he called a press conference to cry to the press that the mean lady in glasses was picking on him.

So far he’s fallen headfirst into every trap McCain has laid for him.

I am one happy camper these days.

Ooo, wait a sec! Here’s an even better line:

OBAMA WON’T PUT A WOMAN ON HIS TICKET, BUT HE USES WOMEN TO DO HIS FIGHTING FOR HIM.

Spread the word.

The Libs said that by nominating Sarah that women wouldn;t just vote for her because she’s a woman, so what do they do? they send out a bunch of women to convince women to listen to them just because they are women.

Sarah’s appeal goes way beyond gender — this tactic will fail miserable. Can;t wait

David Axelrod, the campaign’s chief political strategist, said Mr. Obama would not raise questions about Ms. Palin’s experience. Instead, the campaign would work to impress upon voters the seriousness of the race and continue its attempt to link the McCain-Palin team to President Bush.

Obama has finally learned not to attack her experience because it shows voters just how inexperienced he is. However, when will they learn that people are not buying into their argument that McCain = Bush 3rd term. I don't think people are buying that after Palin's speech!

I remember before the 1996 election when they floated the rumor Bill and Hillary were “thinking of adopting a child.
Of course this was BS that dropped after Bill was reelected.

Dick Morris discusses this in his book about Hillary “Rewriting History”

Yes, the dog was another ploy to soften their image. Remember when they gave Socks the Cat to the housekeeper after the cat had served his purpose. LOL!
