Exactly right. In 2008 they found the secret, a black candidate who could appeal to guilty whites. When rev Jackson ran he was so well known and inarticulate that liberals had cover to not support him. With 0bama he was well spoken and came off as mainstream so he took the "guilty" white vote. The fact that the GOP ran McLame made Bambam a shoe in.
I agree—he was focus-grouped way ahead of time and found to be their perfect candidate for the reasons you stated. And, as I have heard from many elderly voters, “he has such a lovely family...”
I agree completely! In putting McLame up, the Repugs did what the Dems did in 2000 and 2004: they put up a candidate from their party that even their own people didn’t like!
Even worse, with the added problems of NON-Conservative Bush being identified as a “conservative” by the MSM and the faulting economy (FALSELY identified as having started in Dec 07 (to give cover to the Dems who have been running the economy into the ground since they took over in 2006)) and then putting Mr. “I really don’t know who the enemy is, but if I did, I still wouldn’t fight “ McStupid up for election was the CHERRY on top! This was not ONE thing; it was a culmination of gross failures on the part of the Repugs and pushing from the left!
Through all of this, I really, REALLY would like to know how bad McRINO would have lost against Obamao if he had NOT selected Palin! I mean, could you even imagine if he had selected Joe “I’m a bigger RINO than McStupid” Lieberman or Mitt “Repug forced healthcare is better than Dem forced healthcare” Romney?
I believe McAmnesty would have been the only candidate EVER to have lost ALL 50 states (or 57 states in this particular election)!!
