Skip to comments.Willie Brown: "Democrats are in trouble"
Posted on 09/07/2008 11:06:36 AM PDT by Kleebo151
The longtime San Francisco mayor and Democratic genius sounds the alarm over Gov. Palin in a San Francisco Chronicle op-ed:
Sarah Palin has totally changed the dynamics of this campaign
The Republicans are now on offense and Democrats are on defense. And we dont do well on defense.

Willie Brown a genius? HA!!
How long before Hairplugs Biden has to drop off the ticket in order to spend more time with his family? Who will replace him I’m not sure..... I hear Tom Daschle is available.
Mark Halperin: Spawn of the odious Morton Halperin.
I met Brown once—he’s a smart man for a Liberal. I think he’s got this nailed.
Yeah, The Plagiarist will have to drop out due to a scalp disorder.
"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." - Manuel II Palelologus
My thoughts exactly!!!
Rush brought this up in an interview with Greta:
Biden might be dropped for some “unforeseen issue”
See 3/4 into the video
Or taxes, or welfare, or border security, or rights, or fiscal management, etc.
We know Willie! We love Sarah Palin too!!!
When the Democrats criticize their own candidates and praise the GOP you KNOW it’s OVER for Obama and Biden.
McCain must make sure to stay true to his conservative principles (which he has ignored for sometime) and really fight for the people, for reform, and for freedom and he and Palin will win in a LANDSLIDE. Once in office McCain and Palin MUST deliver on their PROMISES and clean house thoroughly.
He is, compared to San Francisco's current mayor.
> Willie Brown.
He looks like a pimp.
Maybe if Osama drops Biden, Willie could be vice-pimp daddy.
Willie Brown is saying what i said! to be truthful, it's my opinion that neither party does well on defense... it's not a good place to be...
Willie Brown is a cool cat liberal. I have nothing but respect for him.
He must moonlight at the Apple store or something.
“She didn’t have to prove she was “of the people.” She really is the people.”
And to the libs that spells......................doom.
If Willie Brown weren't Black, you'd never have heard of him.
If Willie Brown weren't Black, you'd never have heard of him.
Me thinks they have to run with him.
And when people become THIS freaking STUPID and inattentive to their freedoms, THIS is the candidate they deserve.
Did Obama play basketball, or was he just a benchwarmer?
How successful were his teams? (High school only I’m assuming.)
When did a missing brain become a “scalp disorder?”
Now there is a Demonrat that knows what he is talking about.
You're right. They can only call it a bounce if it comes back down. I suppose they will be calling it an 'extended bounce' up until Nov 5.
I think they will dump Biden and put Hillary....
But than again, Hillary’s already been in the White house, i don’t know if she would go as VP under Obama
Har dee har har. Love to hear it!!!!!!!!!
This is a surprising remark, given the source.
But the Dalai-Bama is leading with about 270 Electoral votes - McCain is still behind.
Bradley effect? Everyone is lying to the poll takers, could McCain be poised to blow him out? Their pundits know this - and that is the real reason for the panic. Sarah Palin is pure napalm, burning away their DC jungles of lies and deceit so the world could watch the hideous roaches scurry about. Fire when ready! Term Limits - now and forever!
The racist attack is coming on Sarah Palin - the last refuge of the scoundrel. They will have to go nuclear to stop her - and what better weapon than ‘Old Reliable’. It’s coming, they are hinting at it right now. They already called her a slut, they called her a bad mother, they called her daughter a slut, they said it was a “wreck of a home life”. But that is not working because no one is buying it. They need to put her in a klan outfit, with photoshop if they have to, and then have their trained lapdogs at MSNBC keep repeating it until election day. I feel like Pravda retirees are controlling our news. It’s pack journalism and its ugly. (Can someone ask Rendell and Macauliff if the media is mistreating Governor Palin like they did Hillary - and we will see if they are honest!)
The NY Times lied and said she was a member of the AIP (Alaska Independence Party), completely untrue to destroy her. Shoddy journalism - always to Obama’s benefit.
I have never seen anything like it, except for Bork, Thomas, Alito, John Tower,....etc.
By the way, there's a new dining tip for people going out in Oakland.
Be sure to order soup.
That way when the robbery starts, you can slip off your jewelry and drop it into soup so the robbers won't see it.
I wonder if this kind of talk is part of a San Francisco-Oakland rivalry thing, or if the situation in Oakland is so bad that this advice is necessary. Maybe both.
Maybe not a genius, but Willie Brown has plenty of savvy built up over the years, and can recognize the absolute agony the Democrats are going to go through before this is over.
First, of course, is that they have a huge wagon they have hitched on much too lightweight of a draft animal. Obama was sent into the game, woefully unprepared for a flank attack of this magnitude, depending instead of charm and good manners to woo the American public.
And it almost worked. Confident enough so he could bring in a lack-luster second in command on his team, and with the seemingly uninspired John McCain looking like he was unwilling to engage Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., the charismatic, messianic Magic Negro, the post-convention bounce was coming along nicely.
Then that phenomenon which was Sarah Palin happened. Suddenly the game was totally changed, and what looked like a lock on the election totally evaporated. For anything to break right now, would have to have a LOT of effort thrown in, and an unimaginable streak of luck too, for good measure.
The effort, up to now, is all wrong and totally ineffectual, and there does not seem to be all that much luck running in Obama’s favor either. The Democrats were all ready to attack Romney, or Huckabee, or Giuliani, and had complete playbooks set up for each one. Then from way out there in the right-field bleachers comes a total unknown, or at least unknown to the Democrat power brokers.
Result, they were caught flat-footed with no effective playbook. Every time they tried to put her in a box, or try to define her, she side-stepped them and made their efforts look foolish. With all the rage that a bevy of medieval English lords could muster, they went after her by foul means when the “fair” means did not work. Her hair, the fact she had a child with special needs, the sacking of one of her commissioners, an alleged “affair”, the belief that her previous experience did not prepare her for the potential position of Vice-President, and worst and probably least effective, tried to shame Sarah for being a “bad mother”, mainly because her 17-year-old daughter was “in the family way”.
I guess they know by now, that did not work, as they wipe the egg off of their eyebrows and out of their ear canals.
There’s a lot I have to say about Willie Brown, some of it not really fit for this forum, but the man is a shrewd politician. When he looks at Sarah Palin, turns back to the Dems and says “Guys, you’re in trouble,” I take that as high praise.
You're absolutely correct! Replacing anyone on the Democrat ticket would be an admission of total failure on the part of the Democrats. It would be saying that the Republicans were smarter than they were and that the Republicans were way more in touch with the electorate than they were.
And they would never replace Obama. Can you imagine what the blacks would do?
I don't think that's true. Everything I have heard about Brown indicates that he is brilliant as a politician. Plus he's entertaining. Of course being black is part of who he is.
Well, based on his past, campaigning is about all he does. Of course, that doesn't mean he'll get anywhere. Harold Stassen did a lot of campaigning, too.
Willie Brown is a political genius. The man was Speaker of the CA Legislature forever, even before the Dems had completely taken over CA. He achieved his Speakership by wooing Republicans to vote for him, along with a handful of Democrats. The man knows his stuff.
