Skip to comments.Old, Unelectable Democrats Have Lots of Advice for Barack Obama
Posted on 10/07/2010 3:59:21 AM PDT by chickadee
Though his party is ailing as we enter the home stretch of the election, President Obama and his supporters can take heart, knowing that he's getting new strategies for electoral success from a fresh crop of advisers.
For example: former vice president and failed presidential candidate Walter Mondale. You can't read the news these days without finding pearls of wisdom the Minnesota Democrat has dropped. Mondale is 82 and last won a major election under his own name in a 1970 Senate race. After a term as vice president, he ran for president in 1984 and lost every state save his own and the District of Columbia.

Come on... they need to give Walter Mondale more credit than that. He is the only person in history who has lost a statewide race in EVERY state. Not only only did he lose 49 states in 1984, but in 2002 he lost in Minnesota as well when he attempted to “re-run” for the Senate seat there.
He came within 3,000 votes of losing Minnesota in 1984.
You are both quite knowledgeable on Walter Mondale. I thought he was dead (shrug).
***We need a new mountain of Dem losers.***
Laugh. Let’s pick out a neighborhood in the remains of Detroit that would be suitable for the honor.
Yes, and several political observes said if Reagan had stopped in Minnesota once or twice more before the election.
He, Mondale would have lost Minnesota too!
We could construct the statues out of compressed trash left over from Dem events and campaign materials.
Should Obama be tried for treason?
Take the poll here:
OK... but it has to be on one of Saturn’s moons.
Be sure to bring those phony Greek columns that Obama used in Denver.
You have an idea there. We could name asteroids after these disasters.
Obama/Mondale 2012 ....
Re-Elect the Teleprompter or as mondale calls it the IdiotBox. The Idiot in Chief that is in Office is nothing but an Obummer
What a spiteful article. The Lib heroes of days gone by point out what the Big 0 is doing wrong and Obamaâs Praetorian Guard in the MSM lashes out at them. Mondale said Obama needs to lose the âidiot boards.â He’s right. That advice has nothing to do with whether Mondale lost one state or 49 states. More attack the messenger from a team that has nothing to show for itself.
Rather ... but it has to be inside a new Love Canal on one of Uranus's moons.
Mrs. Theknow turns the TV to CNN during the night when she wakes up, since they are the only ones giving any news at that time of day.
The CNN analists...um, analysts...were on with Eliot Spitzer?!?
The topic...Why isn't President 0bama getting his message out more effectively?
The RenCen in Detroit would be the perfect venue.
The Democrats' monument wouldn't be carved on a mountain — it would be carved out of a hole in the ground.
But he won D.C.. Then again, so did Marion Berry.
Gee, I hope your tongue was planted firmly in your cheek while writing this post.
We could name our largest garbage dumps after these “esteemed” politicians.
How about etching their face in the ground down at the county landfill?
In fact, I could swear I saw an image of the Wee Wee there ... just last week.
yes I remember. The good ole liberal white folk did not let Alan Paige get the nod after Wellstone died.
That was my thought, too. I was thinking one of those coal mines that Obama wants to put out of business.
They could burn off the Methane as an eternal flame to them too.
That’s exactly right. I remember the MSM trying to turn Dukakis into another JFK. They were waiting for a new Camelot when he was leading Bush Sr. in the polls. It was laughable. Now Dukakis is and “old unelectable” Dem now that he is criticizing the new Dem savior. The Dems are really a party that revolves around cult of personality—just like the Communists. Attack the messenger. Mondale said Obama should get rid of the idiot cards. That’s perceptive advice no matter who it comes from. But any hint of attack, no matter how justified, results in a counter-attack by the MSM.
Here’s the latest:

Why is it that the Dem’s biggest losers magically have so much wisdom to share? Carter coulda had national health insurance—but for Ted Kennedy. Mondale coulda won in 1984 with just 1 more good debate performance (seriously, 1 more good debate performance would have turned around an election in which his opponent won 49 states?????!!!!!????).
If these anecdotes don’t prove that Democrats as a group are delusional, it certainly appears that many of the people they nominate for president surely are.

Mostly everything Dems “believe” in is made up out of whole cloth. Their tired old ideas have been tried repeatedly in countries all over the world. They result in oppressive societies which, in turn, kill millions of their own citizens trying to enforce the “dream”.
