Just what office is Barack Obama running for? Commander in Chief? Or perhaps Keeper of the Constant Whine? Or maybe Lord High Commissioner of the Bitch?
To Obama, it’s always something. Bush challenges his foreign policy positions and he whines about a “political attack” rather than responding.” McCain rightly points out that Obama has absolutely zero foreign policy experience (except that advanced course in foreign relations he took when he was 8 years old and living in Indonesia – or whatever Obama’s claim to superior experience is this week) and the candidate weeps like an 11 year old girl, complaining about McCain using the “old politics” to diss him.
Now Obama is whining about not being able to win in Kentucky on Tuesday. First, he blames Fox News (?). Then he fingers an email campaign in the state against him. Finally, he lamely explains that he just doesn’t have the time to sit down face to face with the good folks from Kentucky and work his magic spell on them:
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, facing a likely defeat in next Tuesday’s primary election, won’t travel to Kentucky before the voting, but said he hopes to have much more time to win over Kentucky voters before the November general election.
He also blamed Fox News for disseminating “rumors” about him and said that that and e-mails filled with misinformation that have been “systematically” dispersed have hurt him in Kentucky.
“When we’re able to campaign in a place like Iowa for several months and I can visit and talk to people individually, I do very well. That’s harder to do at this stage in the campaign,” Obama said in a brief telephone interview Friday. “And once we get past the primary, we’ll able to focus more on those states where we need to make sure people know my track record.”
In contrast, Obama’s rival, Sen. Hillary Clinton, will make five stops in Kentucky over the weekend, including appearances at two university campuses.
Obama spoke to more than 8,000 supporters in Louisville Monday night — his first time in the state since August. He said he had hoped to spend more time in Kentucky earlier this week but was called back to Washington, D.C. for votes on Tuesday.
He even whines about having to serve the people of Illinois while he’s campaigning for president. The fact that he’s missed 40% of senate votes since the beginning of 2007 (McCain has missed 58%) sort of makes his excuse about not being able to spend more time in Kentucky because he had to rush back to Washington and vote ring a little hollow.
But it is his carping and whining about Fox news doing him in as far as Kentucky is concerned that really takes the cake. It couldn’t be that you are hugely unpopular in the state now, could it senator? And yeah, go ahead and play the race card – we fully expect it by now and look forward to you wearing it out in the general election – but the fact is senator it’s not so much that there aren’t racists in Kentucky; there are. It’s just that there are hundreds of thousands of more people who think you are too inexperienced, too liberal, too much of an elitist, and too dangerously naive to vote for you.
The truth hurts, Barry. You can get your minions in the press to write articles between now and the election about the reason you lose so spectacularly is because the good folks in states like Indiana, West Virginia, and Kentucky all keep white robes and hoods hidden in their closets and really can’t stomach the idea of a black man becoming president. That kind of analysis is about as deep as your thinking on foreign policy – which judging by the thugs in the world who look forward to your election victory is not only incredibly shallow but reflects a dangerous self-denial on your part as to just what the endorsement from groups like Hamas really means.
In your arrogance, you tar those who find your positions on the issues wanting with the label of racist. There is no legitimate reason to oppose you, in your opinion. Only racists, fear peddlers, rumor mongerers, and other low life scum refuse to vote for you.
But hey! Once people get to know you, they love you. You will melt the opposition in their hearts by the magical healing powers of your silky smooth, mellifluous voice. You will over come the hardness of their opposition by the sheer goodness of your bi-racial soul.
The more I see and hear Barack Obama, the less I think of him as a man and as a candidate. He hides behind his race as if it was his momma’s skirts. Nothing is ever his fault or the fault of the positions he has taken on issues vital to the safety and security of the United States. It’s either people who don’t vote for him are racists or war mongering fascist neocons who refuse to get with his new program of not being so beastly to our enemies. He is thin skinned, quick to anger, overly sensitive, and a whining, sniveling child who can’t take criticism like a man and respond as an adult.
The more he whines the more the press bends over backwards to cover for him. He makes a statement about there being 57 states and gets a pass. McCain confuses Shias and Sunnis and he’s a senile old man. He calls a reporter “sweetie” and his apology is accepted – end of story. McCain apologizes for anything and it’s never enough.
I hate the idea of having to defend McCain but the fact is, the press coverage of the 2008 campaign is even more lopsided than it was in 2004 – something I thought could never be topped. And as long as Obama cries crocodile tears whining Foul! every time he is criticized, the press will continue to back his outrageous claims of “unfairness” and dirty politics.
