Off Come The Gloves

Although Fred did not do as well as one would have hoped, I will stand by him until he elects to end his campaign. I feel there may be an outside chance at the GOP Primary, assuming he is still in it at that point. However, I am not blind to reality in that this is, at this point, looking more and more like a long shot. That having been said, there is always the chance the Democrats will self destruct in spectacular fashion.
The gloves seem to be finally coming off for the Democrats, as Clinton and Obama do their version of “Rock’em Sock’em Robots” ™ .

As Obama tried to defend his recent comments about Republican ideas and Ronald Reagan, Clinton interrupted and said she has never criticized his remarks on Reagan.
“Your husband did,” said Obama, who has accused the former president of misrepresenting his record.
“I’m here. He’s not,” she snapped.
Obama persisted, suggesting the Clintons were both practicing the kind of political tactics that had alienated voters.
“There was a set of assertions made by Senator Clinton as well as her husband that are not factually accurate,” Obama said. “I think that part of what people are looking for right now is someone who is going to solve problems and not resort to the same typical politics that we’ve seen in Washington.”
Clinton countered: “I believe your record and what you say should matter.”

Sheesh, although I don’t agree with Obama on damn near anything, I have to give him points for trying to bitchslap Her Thighness and her (one wonders for how long) husband, the one time Philanderer-in-Chief, Bill. As for her last comment above, in bold … if that were really the case, you would have been either laughed out of office or in jail, or both quite some time ago … don’t you think?

John Edwards, who badly trails his two rivals, tried to stay above the fray while pleading for equal time.
“Are there three people in this debate, not two?” he asked.

One can imagine him thinking (?) “And if they don’t let ME talk, I am gonna hold my breath and turn blue until they do!!” What a tool!

The bitter exchange underscored the closeness of the race for the party nod. Obama captured the Iowa caucuses on Jan. 3, Clinton bounced back with a win in New Hampshire and the two shared the spoils in Nevada. The first-in-the-South primary on Saturday in South Carolina is expected to produce a strong turnout from black voters, who could make up more than 50 percent of the Democratic electorate.

Hmmmm, are we “oh fearless and intrepid reporter”, trying to say the all important black vote ™ which the Dems have been pandering for all these years might actually go toward a real black? Instead of the wife of the nations “First Black President” ™ © ? Why the mind boggles! That the voters might actually do something akin to thinking for themselves vice follow the established party line like so many lemmings. (Granted, both candidates are liberal to the extreme, but at least there is a choice.)
The article, cross posted at Drudge, continues on with Edwards joining Clinton (Ok, sis I will stand by you, against the mean black man! … If you promise to give me the VP nod when you get nominated.) in trying to “bash” Obama. The whole thing is a wonder to behold, and I think is just the tip of the ice berg as the race for the Democratic nod really starts to heat up. Bring you popcorn and beer kids….this is gonna get interesting!!!

  1. It has been my opinion for some time now, and just lately suggested by some in the right wing radio media, that the Democratic party is assuming the votes of Blacks, and instead now pursuing the illegal-immigrant, or otherwise Latino vote.
    Uh, who is responsible for any race wars, or for identification of people as hypehenated Americans (Italian-Americans, Native-Americans, African-Americans)? And why isn’t that acknowledged as divisive?

  2. I thought the Dems were pandering …. err trying to acquire the vote from as many “voting blocks” (that would be ethnic groups. gender specific groups, activist groups, any victimized people{s}, or the dear departed … for those of you in Rio Linda) as they could get their grubby hands on. Though I had heard the same thing you mention about them not pushing as hard for the African-American vote…and instead pushing for the Hispanic (legal or otherwise) vote, this time around.
    As for the hyphenated American syndrome (HAS), you can thank those who promote political correctness for that….gee, it’s those pesky Democrats/Liberals again!
