Skip to comments.Obama Tries To Flush Rush
Posted on 09/24/2008 1:00:11 AM PDT by JohnHuang2
For two decades, going back to the Willie Horton ads of 1999, we've heard liberals accuse Republicans of race-baiting. Throughout this campaign, there have been endless whispers, suggestions and outright accusations that GOP could/would play the race card because Obama is half-black. Now Barack Obama has found his bizarre version of Willie Horton, and it's . Rush Limbaugh.
Obama sneakily tried to air a Spanish-language TV ad telling Latinos that Limbaugh thinks all Mexicans are stupid, Mexican immigrants should all shut up and go home, and that Limbaugh and John McCain are identical twins on immigration.
None of it is true. Now when Obama talks about reaching across the aisle and healing a divided Washington, we'll fall to the ground laughing.

New Study shows Media full of it
Now that Obama is trailing in Ohio, Virginia, Florida, Missouri and stuck in a dead heat in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, with campaign staff rapidly evacuating from North Dakota -- time for the liberal media . . . oops, sorry, the totally 'impartial' and 'objective' media to reach for their standby excuse for why their loser is losing: Racism!
To prop up the fading celebrity, the media all summer had tried playing the class warfare card, urging voters to vote Obama because Obama owns only one mansion, whereas Cindy McCain has several homes. And that Obama owns just one car but John McCain has several, making Obama prepared to lead! Obama spent millions on attack ads accusing McCain of being rich and successful, and (shockingly!) McCain's poll numbers went up.
Sooooo, out comes this "study" purporting to show that the reason an empty-suit, tax-raising, rogue-state/terrorist-coddling, zero accomplishment, Jeremiah Wright disciple and effete Harvard elitist pal of Ayers, Rezko, Freddie and Fannie is doing so poorly in polls is because of his skin color. Over 96 percent of blacks support Obama, so the media conclude this has nothing to do with skin color. It's only non-blacks who are the 'racists'.
"Barack Obama's race could be the deciding factor if the presidential battle remains a dead heat on Election Day, according to an Associated Press poll released in conjunction with Stanford University," the WSJ reports. They polled 2,227 adults, asked them a series of stupid questions, and, on the basis that only 7 out of 10 Democrats say they support Obama, Standford University and the AP concluded that "many white Americans" are racists. Just 59% of Hillary Clinton's "primary voters say they will vote for Obama," so the remaining 41% are 'racists'. Seventeen percent say they're voting McCain -- making them Bull Conner-loving slavery revivalists.
Independent 'swing voters' are also guilty of 'racism', since a good chunk of them aren't supporting Obama, according to the 'study'.
The "study" also concluded that Republicans not backing Obama are 'racists', too, because they're not backing Obama. But the studiers note that GOP voters aren't the problem since studies show Republicans don't normally back Democrats anyway, which does wonders to the premise of this idiotic 'study'.
"Not all whites are prejudiced," the AP notes charitably, "indeed more whites say good things about blacks than say bad things, the poll shows." But! Since 40 percent of whites in the poll "used at least one negative adjective about blacks," clearly 40 percent of all white Americans want to revive slavery. The negative adjectives include "'lazy,' 'violent,' or responsible for their own troubles." The music industry and Hollywood constantly portray blacks as lazy, violent, or responsible for their own troubles, so it's a real mystery where these ideas come from.
But, not so fast! Another intensive study, just released, reaches the opposite conclusion. "White America's alleged deep-seated racism appeared not to be a problem for Gen. Colin Powell, who, unlike Obama, is actually black," said the study's author, "JohnHuang2", who conducted the study by entering key words and dates into Google. By Googling "NPR," "1995," and "Powell," according to this study, you get this: "A series of polls conducted over the past month show strong support for Colin Powell running as a Republican in a two-man race against President Clinton . . ." -- this was back in the fall of 1995, when Powell was thinking about running for president. The Washington Post reported at the time that "a late August poll for Newsweek magazine by Princeton Survey Research . . . shows that as the GOP nominee, Powell would defeat President Clinton by a decisive 51 percent to 41 percent. In the poll, no other Republican nominee, including Dole [who's white!], defeats the Democratic incumbent." JohnHuang2's landmark study also unearthed headlines like, "Colin Powell Puts Whites at Ease," from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, dated Sept. 15, 1995 -- when America was supposedly even more 'racist', since that was over 12 years before the coming of "The One We've Been Waiting For," B. Hussein, who injected race into the campaign in the first place.
A year ago, either you'd back Hillary or you're a grunting Neanderthal misogynist -- so are liberals knuckle-draggers now that they've opted for the all-male ticket while going bananas dumping on the gal governor, Sarah Palin? After playing the religion card, the bimbo card, the dominatrix card, the Gov. Pontius Pilate/madrightwingextremistwhofakedherpregnancy card and watching it all boomerang, the limping identity politics commissars limp into the Twilight Zone that Sarah's star will soon 'fade'. People will get tired of her authentic charm! According to the New York Times, her star has already 'faded'. In fact, at a rally Sunday, 60,000 rapturous Floridians came out to see this "fading" phenomenon. In sweltering weather. To see the next Vice President of the United States. Poor libbies.
My Two Cents...
Willie Horton was 1988, not 1999. So much for fact checking.
Obama the arrogant is out of his league; he just does not know it and will not until he finds out all too late that he has lost the election.
thinks = think
Aw heck...why don’t you use your powers as the King Of Ping for this one?!
B HUssein Obama... you got LUCKY beating Hillary! RUSH LIMBAUGH is another matter.
Last one that tried to get RUSH... found his signature on a 4 Million Dollar Contribution to a RIGHT WING CHARITY!(/sarc)
I look forward to seeing THAT one ...
Bozell doesn't really clear that up. When Rush said the quote that is bolded he was speaking in the second person as someone who supported NAFTA which Rush did not IIRC. It was not his personal opinion.
At this point, Obama may be able to “reach across the aisle”, but I don't think he can reach across the racial divide he has created. He has said and done too many things that are going to take time to assuage both sides of that divide.
My problem with the dems: Who is dumber, Biden or Obama? I kinda think they both are!
Obama’s problem in the election is the same as Hillary’s in the race for the nomination; the presumption of inevitability.
On Nov. 5th, Obama will be green.
Willie Horton ad was started by Al Gore firsy.
Lets see, if the spanish folks fall for that line they may be stupid to my surprise.
Obamma, don’t you remember? Stupid is as stupid does..
Flap them ears and fly!!!
"I hate when that happens!"
Actually, I believe Rush was pro-NAFTA. One of the only things he defended Clinton on.
Rush has probably spent more days at work this year alone, than BHO has worked in 4 years in the Senate. And my tax dollars aren't paying for Rush.
I was not able to listen to all of Rush’s show yesterday. Wasn’t he going to play a spanish rebuttal? If so, how did it go?
