Obama to Supporters: 'Argue with Your Neighbors, Get in Their Face'
Wednesday, September 17, 2008 | Kristinn

Posted on 09/17/2008 8:34:49 PM PDT by kristinn

Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois today exhorted his supporters to get extremely aggressive in their communities to persuade their neighbors to vote for Obama in November.

Speaking to a crowd in Elko, Nevada, Obama was quoted by the AP as urging the people to be his 'ambassadors':

"I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face.

"And if they tell you that, 'Well, we're not sure where he stands on guns.' I want you to say, 'He believes in the Second Amendment.' If they tell you, 'Well, he's going to raise your taxes,' you say, 'No, he's not, he's going lower them.' You are my ambassadors. You guys are the ones who can make the case."

Obama has campaigned as a uniter. One can't help but wonder how neighbors will react to people getting up in their faces arguing to them to vote for Obama and how many friendships will be ruined by Obama this fall.

I have already seen this in the Obama supporters I know. They will lie to your face; it’s almost like they follow the Koran.

"And if they tell you that, 'Well, we're not sure where he stands on guns.' I want you to say, 'He believes in the Second Amendment.'

"He believes in the Second Amendment," as an article of faith, or as a reality of the Bill of Rights? This ain't gonna fly in Elko.

Here’s what I do: Sit there and listen to them and politely ask question after question - appearing to be interested but unconvinced. If you can engage one of these nuts for a half hour or an hour, that’s time that they are NOT spending with softies that might actually believe the stuff they spew.

I do the same thing when one of them calls my house. It’s the most helpful thing you can do.

I have noticed that in the last week, the Democrats have gotten much more strident with their talking points. I have noticed this not only on televisoin and on the Internet, but also with real live Democrats who are fierce Obama partisans. I have absolutely had it with these people. They are utterly incapable of having a human discussion. And they have become insufferable bores.

In a closely related vein, I loved the way Karl Rove let Alan Combs have it tonight. I guess I’m not the only one who has reached my limit.

The only thing that really impresses me about the Obama campaign is their amazing ability to find new and innovative ways to piss people off.

If any of his people want to have a rational and civil discussion with me, I will be glad to oblige.

HOWEVER:

If any of his idiotic sycophants “get in my face” I will give them one and only one warning to get right back out of my face. After that somebody gets his ass kicked.

“Get in their faces.” He's accustomed to that. Remember the waving, offensive, in-your face Jeremiah Wright? Obama himself has written that the loud-mouthed, vulgar, clownish, rude Rev Wright is his “mentor.”

Why, that's a good idea. It also shows far more patience than I have with these people. I am afraid I would not be able to control my gag reflex.

Hm.

Well, come to think of it, if they are taking time out to change their clothes after I puke in their lap, that would tend to eat up some of their time as well, wouldn't it? And give me a good deal of personal satisfaction as well.
