Dem pollster: What Obama really needs is an Oklahoma City moment
Hot Air ^ | NOVEMBER 4, 2010 | ED MORRISSEY

Posted on 11/05/2010 2:25:06 PM PDT by RobinMasters

Occasionally, political pundits get so wrapped up in their analysis that they don’t 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. Eyeblast’s 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.

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.

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.

What a scumbag asshole Democrat. Blithely wishing for a disaster on which they could blame a "WHITE SUPREMECIST" is singularly reprehensible, all to make his new master look good [as if he'd actually be able to do anything substantive].

We will end up in a shooting war with these people.

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.

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.

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.

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.

President Obama has had numerous opportunities to 'connect' with Americans (Fort Hood massacre, Gulf oil spill, Ground Zero mosque controversy, etc) but he clearly wasn't interested. He never will be interested. He sees us - Americans - as greedy, selfish oppressors that need to be cut down to size via an economic meltdown precipitated by you-know-who. Obama's blather about 'not communicating his message' is nonsense, and he knows it. His message can't really be 'communicated' because it is the destruction of American greatness via the undermining of our economy.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.
