Sarah hurt his widdle feewings and he's got his panties in a wad. What a baby!

He'd probably assume permanent fetal position if he had to face even 1/4 of the criticism thrown at President Bush. How does he expect to assume the duty of Commander in Chief if he's whining over last night's speeches?

There is no doubt he’s upset... he’s been ridiculed, and anyone who has tons of ego and self esteem and very little accomplishment to go with it immediately get mad when they are ridiculed, whether they are ridiculed justly or unjustly, because they know they are not what they outwardly portray themselves.

A man confortable in his skin does not get angry from being ridiculed, only the empty suit turns to anger over such a thing.

There may have been an agreement that BHO would do this in order to gin up viewership.

Dennis Miller put it out last night....this is the first time someone has a chance to pin down the ‘smoke and mirrors’ candidate and he better not screw it up! (Miller sees O’reilly sliping in stature)

The timing of this couldn’t be better, ya think?

After the speeches last night, especially Huck & Rudy slamming him,

then followed up by the grand slam from the young, AUTHENTIC, conservative/Godly warrior,

then he goes in to interview with O’Reilly.

I don’t care how easy BOR was on him. He couldn’t have done well.

Took a couple questions from the press at a campaign stop in York, PA.

Did he change his policies again from his last stop in San Francisco? Are people in York clingers??

Caution: This is very much the type of trick used to depress expectations so that he will look good in comparison when the actual segment is aired.

Of course, he could genuinely have ****ed up, too. The question is, even if he did, will O'Reilly and his production team rescue Obama or emphasize the screwups?

Q. What’s a community organizer?
A. It’s someone who organizes a community.

Q. And communities need organizing?
A. You think they organize themselves?

Q. I’ve lived in plenty of communities, and I don’t remember any organizers.
A. The best community organizers seek no credit.

Q. Barack Obama seeks credit.
A. And the even better ones seek lots of credit!

Q. I still don’t understand what a community organizer is supposed to do.
A. The important job of organizing the community.

Q. Like decide the layout plans of communities?
A. No. That’s the job of the city and the builders.

Q. So what is the community organizer organizing?
A. Not the buildings, but the actual community.

Q. To do what?
A. To be organized!

Q. Um... so does he alphabetize the community?
A. More often he uses color coding.

Q. And someone gets paid for this?
A. It’s a very important job.

Q. I still don’t understand what the hell it is.
A. Maybe that’s because it’s such a complex occupation.

Q. Or maybe because it’s a BS job Barack Obama made up.
A. It’s not made up. There’s even a Wikipedia article on community organizing. Here’s the opening paragraph:

Community organizing is a process by which people are brought together to act in common self-interest. While organizing describes any activity involving people interacting with one another in a formal manner, much community organizing is in the pursuit of a common agenda. Many groups seek populist goals and the ideal of participatory democracy. Community organizers create social movements by building a base of concerned people, mobilizing these community members to act, and developing leadership from and relationships among the people involved.

Q. Huh?
A. See, it’s very complicated and important.

Q. If it takes that many words to describe and it’s still not clear what it is, I’m pretty sure it’s a BS job.
A. Know what? Why don’t you rot in your disorganized community you ***** caveman.

Q. And who are the idiots paying these people salaries?
A. It’s the community! They want this! Without the organizing there would be riots and cannibalism!

Q. I’m pretty sure we’ll be fine organizing ourselves.
A. You stupid, gun-toting redneck, this is why people like us don’t even bother trying to talk to people like you. You belittle important things you don’t understand while clinging to your book about the invisible sky fairy!

Q. It’s a made up job.
A. One day Barack Obama will force all your ignorant communities to be organized! Then you’ll get your comeuppance! All of you who laughed at him, we’ll see if you’re laughing then!

Q. I’m pretty sure I will be laughing. I’ll actually make a point of walking up to the community organizer and laughing at him because he wasn’t able to get a real job.
A. Then you’re just mean.

Q. Mean and working and actual job I can explain to others.
A. Hillbilly.

Obama is making the mistake of believing that he will win this election with image alone. The MSM have him believing it. He has been suckered. Woooooo Hoooo!

Now he will respond on the defensive, and we need to keep him there!

I really can't imagine BOR interviewing Obama without bringing them up. Probably Davis as well and possibly the birth certificate stuff. He may have also asked some questions about BHO's accomplishments (zero). After all, BOR has to consider his own reputation.

"Did O'Reilly possibly light him up??"

Nope. Just standard Rope-a-Dope (that's Obama roping you in, by the way).

Former President Clinton did it by leaking his "angry" outburst in an interview...then millions would tune in thinking that some interviewer "got under his skin" only to see an interview that went smoothly and made WJC look good.

Get your hopes up, then dash them.

Nice, professional agitprop, writ large. Welcome to DC politics.

...so don't be duped by Obama pretending to be "angry" prior to his taped softball interview getting aired.

It's a setup. He's going to look good in it.

Might be able to catch a live-stream on your computer via the Bill O’Reilly website or fox news shows.

I really do hope O’Reilly mentions that his interview will not preempt McCain’s aceptance speech.

What I would like to hear from him is this: What, in your community organizing, did you actually accomplish...? Can you give us a syllabus of your law classes...? Do you have any published legal or law review opinions....?

It strikes me that this is an attempt to generate interest in the interview, which was probably BOR doing obeisance to the ONE followed by some pious proclamations from on high.

That's what I think. Shades of Clintons White House testimony.

Obama is so used to getting a free ride from his adoring fans (inluding the media) that if anyone really challenges him, he can’t handle it.

He comes off stumbling and agitated that anyone dare do that.

It’s sure fun to watch.

I am a 100% supporter of BOR but this interview is make or break for BOR.

There is no reason I can think of that BOR would go soft on Obama. He doesn’t want to be chummy with the left, plus they’ll never like him so if he screws this up his real viewers will get pissed.

Dennis Miller the other day even called him out, saying he’s a straight shooter, that BOR is the last line of defense before Obama goes into the bubble. He wanted him to ask Obama to say the Surge worked and some other question, BOR was kind of dismissive though.

We’ll see what happens tonight, he’s going to air the rest next week.

Also I read in another thread that Fox was advertising the interview will be heated.

It would be great if we would all turn off Fox News exactly the moment that Bill O came on with this Obama crap. Turn to cspan.

They have a meter they could watch it drop.

Also go to foxnews and email bill and tell him what a crapper he is for this Obama interview on Maverick’s night.

Here's the deal, folks. Tell this to everyone you know.

Barack Obama hates women. Especially white women.

The man was abandoned by his mother and was raised as a white boy by his grandmother. When he grew up he decided to become a black man, and he was mentored by men who taught him to hate his white mother and his grandmother.

I believe he changed his mind about running for president in 2008 (remember, after his election to the Senate he famously said he would not be ready in 2008) specifically because he wanted to beat Hillary Clinton.

He hired no women in his campaign's senior management. Even Michelle's travelling aide was a man. He has since hired some women from Hillary's campaign but you never see them on television or see them quoted in the press.

Now he has been challenged by another white female and he is not happy about it. He does not know how to respond to a female without dripping with hate and condescension.

I do not know if John McCain's campaign even realized this about Obama when they decided on Sarah Palin. But it is brilliant. He will not be able to stop himself from relentlessly attacking Gov. Palin, belittling her, and demeaning her. Women are going to be turned off when they see this side of him.

I believe Gov. Palin really hit a bullseye last night when she said "the presidency of the United States is not a destination on a personal journey."

What did he say? Not much of substance, which I think explains the responses here.

He talked about how the Republicans are just attacking him, not talking about plans to improve the lives of Americans (which is BS of course). Talked about how important his community organzier work was and that it was only for 3 years.

Come to think of it...funny that he would say he “only” did it for 3 years, which seems odd if it’s a big plus.

He pretty much just came across as defensive.
