  • Rick Wilson: You Hate It From Barack Obama. But You Love It From Donald Trump.

    Independent Journal Review (IJR) ^ | August 12, 2015 | Rick Wilson
    Rick Wilson is a national Republican media consultant and campaign adviser. I’ve come to realize that the Obama Cult and the Trump Cult are two sides of the same personality-cult coin. The cognitive dissonance between what the Trump faction hated about Obama and what they love about Donald is so far beyond ironic it would take a team of trained linguists and semioticians decades to decode.But I’ll try.You hated Barack Obama’s cult-like followers, with their mindless stares of adoration, their impervious barrier between emotion and reason, and their instant fury when confronted with the facts about his record, his history,...

    One of the knocks on the GOP convention was that the “swag” — the kitschy stuff available in tote bags, at booths, and being handed out randomly — was lacking, boring even. Well, it looks like vendors at the Democratic convention are going to try and beat Republicans in that category. Case in point: the Barack Obama calendar that includes a John 3:16 reference to the president. Slate writer Dave Weigel captured a picture of the iconic scripture plastered over an image of Obama and his birth certificate. The picture is the August “centerfold” so to speak, since Obama’s birthday...

    The first school in the D.C. area named after the current president opens Monday morning as the school year begins in Prince George's County. Barack Obama Elementary School opens its doors in Upper Marlboro, Md., for the first time Monday. The school is being touted as being an environmentally friendly "green" school. There have been other schools named after President Obama in the country, but this will be a first in his own backyard in the D.C. region. That's just one of several new initiatives for Prince George's Public Schools this year. The District also will open an all-male charter...

    If Barack Obama disappoints his supporters, they will have only themselves to blame. In January 2007 Mike Huckabee, a former governor of Arkansas, said he was running for president to revive “our national soul”. He was not alone in taking an expansive view of presidential responsibilities. With the exception of Ron Paul, all the serious candidates waxed grandiloquent about their aims. John McCain said he modelled himself on Teddy Roosevelt, a man who “nourished the soul of a great nation”. Hillary Clinton lamented that America had no goals, and offered to supply some. And let us not forget the man...

    While watching the Obama inauguration on television, I could not help but be struck by two very different emotions. On the one hand, I was happy for the African-American community. An African-American President in the White House is certainly a symbol of affirmation of the civil rights movement. However, on the other hand, I was also left with a feeling of disappointment when I contemplated just who is President. When Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. marched for civil rights, he was building upon a legacy set in motion by those before him. People like Jackie Robinson and Jesse Owens opened...

The Times of London said Obama had revitalized U.S. politics.

In that film, Mr. McKay (Redford), a "community organizer" like Barack Obama, hatches a slogan, "McKay, The Better Way" to run for office. Ironically, Barack "Barry" Obama has now chosen "The Better Way" as his mantra through February 10th. Well. Obama's slogan has about as much substance as the celluloid version popularized by Robert Redford. Obama is entirely a creation of wealthy contributors and powerful, liberal media interests.

    Maybe, just maybe, it’s now worth at least asking whether Hillary Clinton might wind up as the Democratic candidate for vice president. When the chatter about a Democratic “dream ticket” began last year, it was easy to dismiss. Either Clinton or Obama would win a clear victory in the primaries and, after what inevitably would be a contentious campaign, each would want as little to do with the other as possible. Clinton, if she emerged victorious, would instead choose some kind of national security graybeard to her political right, a retired general perhaps, or maybe even a Republican. Likewise, Obama...

    When Democrats contemplate the apocalypse these days, they have visions of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton slugging it out à la Ted Kennedy and Jimmy Carter at the 1980 convention. The campaign's current trajectory is, in fact, alarmingly similar to the one that produced that disastrous affair. Back then, Carter had built up a delegate lead with early wins in Iowa, New Hampshire, and several Southern states. But, as the primary season dragged on, Kennedy began pocketing big states and gaining momentum. Once all the voting ended and Kennedy came up short, he eyed the New York convention as a...

Oprah Winfrey is labeled a feminist sell-out. The major campaigns eagerly pander to racial and socioeconomic groups, and try different combinations of divide and conquer strategies. Black Americans are for Obama, and overwhelmingly admit that it’s a vote based on race, women are for Clinton and overwhelmingly admit that it’s a vote on gender.

    There are moments — increasingly rare in risk-abhorrent modern campaigns — when politicians are called upon to bare their fundamental beliefs. In the best of these moments, the speaker does not just salve the current political wound, but also illuminates larger, troubling issues that the nation is wrestling with. Inaugural addresses by Abraham Lincoln and Franklin D. Roosevelt come to mind, as does John F. Kennedy’s 1960 speech on religion, with its enduring vision of the separation between church and state. Senator Barack Obama, who has not faced such tests of character this year, faced one on Tuesday. It is...

    The increasing vitriol of the Democratic presidential WrestleMania shouldn't distract from the opportunity before progressives. The election this year has the potential to be not simply a change election but a sea-change election, one that marks the end of the conservative era that has dominated our politics for nearly three decades. It could be the progressive equivalent of the conservative triumph of 1980. In 1980 Ronald Reagan, the self-described "movement conservative," took the White House from incumbent Jimmy Carter while Republicans picked up thirty-four seats in the House and gained control of the Senate, sweeping out liberal stalwarts like George...

    JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Barack Obama coasted to victory in Mississippi's Democratic primary Tuesday, latest in a string of racially polarized presidential contests across the Deep South and a final tune-up before next month's high-stakes race with Hillary Rodham Clinton in Pennsylvania. Obama was winning roughly 90 percent of the black vote but only about one-quarter of the white vote, extending a pattern that carried him to victory in earlier primaries in South Carolina, Alabama, Georgia and Louisiana. His triumph was widely expected, and seemed destined to do nothing to shorten a Democratic marathon expected to last at least six...

The A.P.'s numbers show Obama coasting to victory over Clinton, who on Monday had already turned her attention to the battleground state of Pennsylvania. Heading into Tuesday's primary, Obama led Clinton in the overall delegate count, 1,591-1,467, with 33 delegates up for grabs in Mississippi. Obama spent the first half of the day in Mississippi before also moving on to Pennsylvania. On Tuesday he asked Clinton to drop Congresswoman Geraldine Ferraro from her campaign for saying the...

    Can Barack Obama, who campaigns as an icon of peace, actually be more bellicose than Bush? Yes, he can. President Obama would be a warmonger. He would be a wide-eyed, zealous interventionist who would not think twice about using America’s “military muscle” (his words) to overthrow “rogue states” and to suppress America’s enemies, real and imagined. He would go farther even than President Bush in transforming the globe into America’s backyard and staffing it with spies and soldiers. He would relish the “American mission” to police the world and topple tyrannical regimes. Iraq is the Obamabots’ favorite faultline in the...

    Long ago, Hillary lost her ability to win the Democratic nomination cleanly in the primaries and caucuses—she'd have to pick off super-delegates in a drawn-out fight. Now, Obama finds himself in a similar situation. Last Tuesday he had a chance to end the race by winning Ohio or Texas and making it unsustainable for Hillary to go on. He won neither. It's still possible to imagine Obama forcing Hillary out with unexpected wins in Pennsylvania and elsewhere, but it doesn't seem likely. Anti-Clinton liberal pundits are insisting that her campaign is still a lost cause, because of "the math," i.e.,...

    Was Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King on the mark last week when he asserted Islamic terrorists would rejoice if Sen. Barack Obama becomes the next U.S. president? As a journalist and author who has conducted dozens of on-the-record interviews with Muslim terrorists, including with some of the most notorious Palestinian terror leaders, and who has documented many of those interviews in a recently released, 210-page book, "Schmoozing with Terrorists," I can answer the above question with a resounding "yes." Terrorists worldwide would indeed be emboldened by an Obama election victory not so much because of the senator's middle name –...

    Liberal Democrats from the North haven't had much success in recent presidential elections — not Hubert Humphrey, not George McGovern, not Walter Mondale, not Mike Dukakis and not John Kerry. Democratic Southerners — Lyndon Johnson, Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton — have done quite a bit better. Sen. Barack Obama, of Illinois, knows this history. So why does he think he can be the first Northern liberal Democratic president since John F. Kennedy edged out Richard Nixon almost a half-century ago? First, there is no incumbent president or vice president running for the first time in over 50 years. Add...

    There are, as it turns out, three Americas: one where John Edwards is livin' it up on a gazillion dollars a year; one where you're rubbing along on much less; and one where downtrodden hardworking folks are struggling to make ends meet on half-a-million a year. Byron quoted this heartreaking vignette from Obamaland a week or so back: “We spend between the two kids, on extracurriculars outside the classroom, we’re spending about $10,000 a year on piano and dance and sports supplements. And summer programs… Do you know what summer camp costs?” Don Surber responds to Princess Michelle: Well, actually I don’t....

    COLUMBUS, Mississippi (Reuters) - Barack Obama on Monday ridiculed rival Hillary Clinton's repeated hints she would take him for the No. 2 spot on her presidential ticket, accusing her of playing political games in their hard-fought Democratic nominating race. Obama, campaigning in Mississippi ahead of the state's contest on Tuesday, said he has won more states than Clinton and is leading in delegates who will decide the Democratic candidate to face Republican John McCain in November. "I don't know how somebody who is in second place is offering the vice presidency to somebody who is in first place," Obama, an...

    The spectacle of the presidential race coming to North Carolina brings more than bright lights, banners and Secret Service agents. Independent voters will more likely vote in the Democratic primary, which is bad for Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory, a Republican. More women and blacks likely will turn out, which is bad for State Treasurer Richard Moore, a Democrat. Presidential campaign ads will hit the airwaves, which is bad for candidates for lower-tier offices, such as lieutenant governor or labor commissioner. The price of television commercials is expected to go up, and that's bad for all candidates. The invasion of the...

    Democrat Barack Obama ridiculed the idea of being Hillary Rodham Clinton's running mate Monday, saying voters must choose between the two for the top spot on the fall ticket. The Illinois senator used his first public appearance of the week to knock down the notion that he might accept the party's vice presidential nomination. He noted that he has won more states, votes and delegates than Clinton so far. "I don't know how somebody who is in second place is offering the vice presidency to the person who is first place," Obama said, drawing cheers and a long standing ovation...

    Republican Congressman Steve King says he stands by his assessment that terrorists will celebrate if Democratic candidate Barack Obama is elected president. "What is discouraging to me is to hear all the allegations that came out and all the name-calling that came my way because I pointed out something that has to do with the culture of the Middle East and how it will be viewed and how a declaration for defeat as a presidential candidate will be viewed by our enemies," King said during a telephone interview from Washington, D.C. "They'll see it as victory and that's really the...
