'O' WHAT A LUCKY BREAK THIS FELLOW IS GETTING
NY Post ^ | Mar. 21, 2008 | CHARLES HURT

Posted on 03/21/2008 8:12:38 AM PDT by COUNTrecount

Call him Barack O'Bama - for he's got the luck of the Irish.

The very week he faces his toughest obstacle ever - one that may still derail his candidacy - Obama gets a near-game-ending pot of gold.

It now appears certain that Hillary Rodham Clinton's efforts to rewrite party rules in a desperate search for a lifeline have failed.

Her absurd proposal of counting her "wins" in Michigan and Florida - long after everyone agreed they wouldn't count - has been laughed off the table.

And now, it appears, there won't even be any revotes.

While revotes are the only way to resolve the matter justly, they would have been problematic for Obama ever since his insane preacher - who makes the Black Panthers seem docile - became a household name.

The Rev. Jeremiah Wright would have terrified elderly Democrats in Florida and blue-collar whites in Michigan.

But Obama's luck doesn't end there. The timing of this whole mess couldn't have been better, because it competed for airtime with Eliot Spitzer's sexcapades.

The tapes have been around for years but came out only after Obama established himself as a solid front-runner.

And when they finally got widespread attention, it was during the longest spell of the campaign without any contests.

The next primary is still more than four weeks away in Pennsylvania, where Obama was going to lose anyway.

But luck is never just luck, and Obama works very hard.

The Wright scandal has been Obama's Gennifer Flowers moment.

And just as Bill Clinton handled that first great bimbo eruption, Obama handled this quite deftly.

He will be clobbered in November after the 527’s run commercials all year long with his pastor’s hate speech being shown 24/7.

Barack The Magic Negro will surely be favored right up until the time Hillary! runs him off the cliff and steals the nomination. Boy is this going to be fun to watch...

How about his comments about his grandmother being a typical white person?

That ought to go over well with some people.

In the end I think that this is very positive for the country. People need to see the racism that exists in this country that isn’t just whitey. Once we get to that place then true unity can occur.

These guys are reading too many of their own positive reviews of Baraq’s speech. That speech was a dud, and the real lucky person in the equation is John McCain. Baraq can’t be elected and the Nominatrix can’t get nominated w/o splitting the party — ergo, McCain gets elected and the Dimwits implode. America wins.

Not a bad strategy by the Clintons — get the Wright scandal going right before primary re-dos so Obama is sure to tank.

Our response: Barack Obama is a typical dishonest politician, throws his own Grandmother under the bus to save his political skin.

Just What Did Obama Know About Wright's Past Sermons? (Plenty)

“Barack Obama either agreed with what was preached from the Trinity pulpit, or he tuned it out and stayed around pretending to for political reasons. To say he stayed for 20 years but doesn't agree with Wright's preaching is incredible denial. It'd be like a man buying White Sox season tickets for 20 years, attending the games, and saying he's not a fan.”

Obama’s supporters want us to ignore this story… just push it under the rug. While they’ll align Republicans with any obscure pastor who does or says something controversial, they’re trying to convince us that Obama’s 20-year long close relationship with Wright, including his effective endorsement of him, his church and rhetoric with a $22,500 donation in 2006 is irrelevant.

“When Obama decided against wearing an American flag pin, we may all have been a bit too quick to accept his rationale, too quick to find that issue unimportant. Now, that American flag pin has gotten a lot bigger for a lot of us, especially in light of what may have been and may still be Obama’s deeper, and, perhaps, secret, less than patriotic beliefs about America.”

“Wright says that blacks can’t be expected to sing God Bless America because of racism. Obama doesn’t salute the flag during the National Anthem. That sure strikes me as an amazing coincidence since Obama swears he never heard Wright say anything against America.”

Here is the link to the Star Spangled Banner video with obama standing there without his hand over his heart...

Notice her ear ring!

Anybody else but me notice how invisible Oprah has been since Rev. Wright hit the news?

She used to be a member/donor to that church a few years ago, wasn't she? I wonder how her white bread moron audience feels about her connection to this racist church.

His speech will help him with the Dims in the rest of the primaries. He deftly fed into their “white liberal guilt”, but that won’t help him in the general election where he needs to win the Indipendent vote. So the Dem Party continues on it’s path of self destruction.

That's exactly what rather literally scares me! People will donate time and money and McCain will be so busy “reaching across the aisle” to his friend Obama that he will hand Obama the victory that was firmly planted in McCain's own pocket.

The Hillary backers are not buying his speech at all. Read the columns by Lanny David and Susan Estrich in which they trash his speech. These are mainstream domocrats who are actually making sense and calling obama and his church for what it is, a black liberation racist church. 1 in 5 Dems now say they will vote for McCain rather than Obama and the same goes for Obama supporters. The Dems are destroying each other. It is the equivelent of mutually assured destruction.

I thin Hillary will actually benefit from the failed attempts at revotes. Look..she wins PA big..picks up a lot of popular votes..and she’ll do great in Peurto Rico as well, now that they switched from a caucus to a primary..So at the end, she’ll be very close in the popular vote, and very close in delegates, then she’ll be able to say tot eh supers..”look, if we had ANY kind of a contest in FL and MI, I’d be ahead now..” In that sense, it makes her argument easier, and impossible to refute..

According to Zogby and Rassmussen yesterday, his poll numbers over this Wright issue are damning.

Bigtime.

The media can play it as they wish but the key voters that really matter to this black racist are lost.

The Dems are stuck with a very vulnerable candidate.

McCain’s father was an Admiral. McCain’s grandfather wss an Admiral. McCain’s rank was Captain, the equivalent of Colonel in the Army. John wants to top what his father & grandfather did by becoming President.

I'm actually starting to think McCrazy has a chance (but not because I'm going out to vote for him). I am po-white-trash-made-good (so now I am over-taxed white trash) but back where I come from, I used to know tons of country-white folk who were very racist against blacks (not that we actually had ANY in the whole county). While they try to talk politics, my general impression looking back is that none of them ever voted in their life. However they will make a special effort to go down to the fire house (cleaned up from the latest weekend wedding no doubt) and cast their vote against the n--. I loved those folk and their backwoods ways but sheesh - I don't miss that life at all.

Hillary’s people need to make the argument to the super delegates that Obama is not electable, so of course they are not going to buy into this speech.
But I don’t buy the claim that they will vote for McCain, they’ll vote for anyone who has a “D” after their name.

The author seems ignorant of the supers.

Hillary WILL be the nominee, regardless of the delegate count going into the convention.

And the “disenfranchised”, perpetually aggrieved victims will stay home and not vote for her.

Justifying the grievance mongering was a violation.

Which is why, as another FReeper noted in a previous post, "Operation Chaos", headed by General Limbaugh, must change its focus. GOP crossover voters must now vote for Obama, not Clinton, as it is now clear that Obama is the candidate who is going to be easier to defeat.

The most recent polls of Democrats show that this speech did not help, but hurt. There are a lot of blue collar Democrats who now refuse to vote for him. This must have also cooled the passion of many Jewish Dems who must be looking askance..
