Skip to comments.Dem pollster: What Obama really needs is an Oklahoma City moment
Posted on 11/05/2010 2:25:06 PM PDT by RobinMasters
Occasionally, political pundits get so wrapped up in their analysis that they dont think through all of the implications of their commentary. That happened to Mark Penn, longtime Democratic pollster, in his appearance on Hardball last night, in the most charitable explanation possible. Eyeblasts Joe Schoffstall clips this magic moment from the discussion with Chris Matthews on how disconnected Barack Obama has become from the American electorate, and what it will take for him to reconnect, using Bill Clinton as an example:

Obama had these moments with the murders by a Muslim at Ft. Hood and the BP Gulf oil spill.
He rose to the occassions with shout outs and admonishments to plug the dam* hole.
....and blame a couple of useful idiots while the middle eastern men run away?
I have an idea then you turd. How about you and all your family be ther when it happens. Unbelievable!
Obambi has had so many oportunities to stand up and do the right thing, instead all he’s done is force his marxist agenda on us all.
Right. Who were those middle eastern men witnesses saw running away from the van?
They’ll get one if they build the Ground Zero Mosque.
Obammma needs that like he needs a fat wife
How about all of the liberals/progressives put themselves in a building and they can have an “Oklahoma City” moment..see how they like it
Exactly. He had those defining moments... and he kicked his own azz.
He needs to be inside a federal building when it’s blown up?
Hey now, I wouldn’t even go that far! ;)
The left is evil and clueless.
“So it will take a terrorist attack for people to like Obama”
No, he needs something that he can put the blame on white guys.
Ah yes, back to the Reichstag Fire strategy. How successful has Obama been at passing the buck up to now? Shit happens, and Republicans should be cool cucumbers and take unexpected things as they come. In the meantime, they should cut spending cut spending cut spending and cut taxes and regulations like the economy and the future of the country depends upon it, because it does.
We will end up in a shooting war with these people.
Because nothing beings sympathy for failed liberal politicians more than dead American civilians. /sarc
These people are so vile, ugly, disgusting...
So IOW, like the Oklahoma bombing, the sight of mangled and lifeless toddlers held in firemens’ arms as the babies are brought out from under tons of concrete and steel would be good for Obama.
Can I say that Mark Penn needs to be kicked in the ass over and over until he repents of his folly.
This is disgusting and I hope it makes FOX.
He should call Clinton. I’m sure he would oblige.
Wonder what a Fat Wookie would look like?
Vile excuses for humans.
Freepers, if Obama was going to try to do something devious, he would have done it by now. The number one threat to the country right now is the unrelenting growth of government, not an Obama conspiracy. Keep your eyes on the ball.
by making the comment we can “absorb” another attack, watching him take 42 days to respond to the coast, watching him take 6 months to send troops requested, watching him respond to FT HOOD.....
I don’t trust this assclown to respond to a knocked over glass of milk.
Certainly the term "middle eastern men" will be considered politically incorrect very soon by this administration and those charged with our protection (sarcasm). We, however, who might use such a term may likely be considered as the dangerous people.
and THE FED
The 800 pound wookie that FR barely talks about.
I’m sure they’ve been praying about it. Question is, who to?
Well, obama HAS an “Oklahoma moment” of a different sort.
The great State of Oklahoma passed a law barring the use of international law and sharia law in State court decisions. Now the islamic supremacist CAiR is suing Oklahoma for “discriminating” against muslims.
I see obama getting on the side of CAiR, not on the side of Oklahoma. So this “Oklahoma moment” will be of no help to him at all.
He knows it, most of the Democrats in Washington know it and, we know it along with millions of Americans that see through the Obama rhetoric about 'hope and change' while he does all he can to denigrate our country overseas and wreck our economy at home. No 'crisis' will change Obama, he'll just try to use it to expand government power. He'll never 'connect' with Americans again because the more they see/hear him and watch what he does - not just what he says - they can see he's no friend of theirs - and never was.
**Right. Who were those middle eastern men witnesses saw running away from the van?***
You mean the ...”Six Dark complected, swarthy men of Middle Eastern extraction seen running from the scene wearing blue running suits.”-ABC news that morning.
I heard them say it on ABC that morning.
What he needs is a Richard Nixon moment
I heard Penn make that comment. Shocked at the very thought. He was pointing out that Clinton didn’t have the people on his side until the OKC Memorial.
Is there nothing too base for these America haters to wish for.
Those crazy assholes. I had a dear friend die in the OKC bombing. I spent 4 sleepless nights helping prep food for the rescue workers. How dare they long for Americans to die so the big Zero can re-connect with the people? Damn everyone of them.
How would they feel if someone were to suggest that there was a way 0bama could make his legacy like JFK’s? That would be creepy and hateful. But it is ok to suggest the blowing up of unknown Americans for political purposes. Just damn.
Anybody have a picture of the Douchebags from SNL?
I'm reminded of a scene in _Ronin_ where a team is planning an ambush, and the lead planner is shown incompetent by a sequence ending "Tell me about an ambush. I ambushed you with a cup of coffee!"
Yep. Why wish to destroy a perfectly good building?
I almost expect that Obama has some inside info about a potential attack on Washington DC so he ran off to India (as far away as he could possibly get) with his entire entourage to be safe.
Sick, Rats running around in the sewer. Talking about American Deaths as a POLITICAL PLUS.
Exactly! 0bummer is working up to it with his 80,000 Muslim immigrants. Not quite Iraqi Republican Guard material but good enough for the purpose.
As one who lost a personal friend and fellow AF vet in the Oklahoma City bombing I wonder if the liberal pundits will volunteer to be sacrificed in order for Obama to have his “Oklahoma” moment.
Why does ANY Republican go on Hardball. Talk about stupid move.
He has chris matthews yelling at him, and the Dummie laughing at him.
Obama had his OKC moment and it is called the Fort Hood Massacre. I would hate for our country to have another OKC moment or another 911 moment. I find the suggest, Obama needs this type of moment to connect with Americans, to be offensive.
I hope that people don’t have to die to prop up the communist.
This is so wrong in so many ways.
I was here in OKC during the bombing and lost a personal friend and fellow AF vet, an officer I was stationed with twice. I remember when Clinton came here for the memorial service. Afterwards, everyone I talked to thought Clinton was as phony as a 3 dollar bill.
The msm elevated him to sainthood. Even watching him on TV most of us knew he was a horrible person. A fraud.
So sorry for your loss. I am sure it is still painful.
That is a simply appalling thing to say!
