Boy, this smacks of true desperation. His internal polling must be truly dreadful.
I don't think so. I think it is the next step in a calibrated strategy to turn the election into a social mass movement. I suspect the ratbastards running Obama see this as the prelude to a popular uprising.
They have softened up the ground, prepared the battlefield, if you will, snaring the dupes and dopes with all the bullcrap about "unity" and "hope." They have fuelled hatred in these drones with their sewer campaigns against Bush, Palin and McCain.
For four long years, since MoveOn declared they "Now own the party" they have instigated rage in the credulous fools and chumps among the masses, in preparation for this moment.
These tactics will escalate but in addition they will soon attempt a "Tet"-like general uprising. Expect a maufactured racial incident, probably the "hate crime" death of some black Obama flunkie who will give his life for the cause and inflame passions throughout the country. Expect racial and class-drenched mob demonstrations in the street in October, to intimidate the GOP opposition with race bombing, rendering them supine in the face of massive electoral fraud in November.
The reason they reacted so violently to Palin was that she did not appear to fit the mold, as McCain does, of willingness to bend over backward to appease the racial thugs of the Left and insure the success of the planned scenario.
