Obama Strikes Fear In Hearts Of … Democrats

Republicans across the nation are learning quite well that one of the best tools in the shed for defeating Democrats is to tie Barack Obama to those Democrats. And Democrats are learning that as well. They are avoiding him like the plague in their election and re-election bids. Tim Kaine, former DNC head, former Virginia Governor, does not want to be seen with Obama. Claire McCaskill, Democrat Senator from Missouri who supported Obama in 2008 does not want to be seen with Obama. Many other Democrats don’t want to be seen with Obama and don’t want Obama to be tied to them. I saw an ad from a Virginia Democrat candidate talking about how Republicans are trying to compare him with Obama. The candidate himself said “That’s quite a stretch. I’m Pro-Life and Pro-Gun.”

As a matter of fact, Obama’s political campaign trips to North Carolina and Virginia had many stops planned that were subsequently dropped because the Democrat candidates in those areas didn’t want any ties at all to Obama or his “jobs” campaign trick. Because in all the “battleground” districts and states nationwide, both the Republicans and the Democrats know tying Barack Obama to the Democrat is like tying a boat anchor to Sham and still expecting Sham to win the Belmont Stakes. The idea of having a photo of Obama and these Democrats together strikes fear in the hearts of the Democrats, even this far out ahead of the election.

  1. They’re Jobs Bill speeches, he’s not campaigning John. It would be illegal to campaign on taxpayer dollars, and we all know the President would do nothing illegal.

    Too bad for them, because their Republican opponents will tie the local candidates to the President at every possible opportunity. They can run, but they can’t hide.

    Nor can they even complain. When President Bush’s popularity was dropping, in 2006 and 2008, the Democrats tried everything they could to tie Republican candidates to President Bush, even in 2008, when the President couldn’t run again. What goes around, comes around.

  3. Careful with that stealth snark tag there, Rovin. There are loony Socialists running around here who can’t see it. And Dana, I know what you mean when you say “nor can they even complain” but you know darn well that’s exactly what they will do: whinge like there’s no tomorrow (because for many Democrats, there will be no tomorrow in election-land).

    But I like that Democrat candidate’s message. He’s so not like Obama because he’s Pro-Life and Pro-Gun and everyone knows Obama is Pro-Abortion (even including aborting live-born babies) and very gun-grabby.

    I was really going to throw a tag on it John, but I’ve been in this “fishing” mode lately. Watching liberals swallow #4 hooks (with no bait) is just too tempting these days. But I do think congress needs to pass a mental health bill for all the disillusioned socialist who will discover this is still a center-right nation next year.

  5. “I like the exodus of Dims running from BO.”

    We’ll see about that “exodus”, Yorkshire, come November 2012, based on the collection of inept candidates your party is currently considering for the nomination. I seriously doubt that the American voter will opt to restore to power the very party and philosophy has once again plunged this nation into serious economic chaos.

    The unknown to me will be the impact of the slew of lies with which we will be inundated with the encouragement and support of the wealthy elite intent on maintaining and expanding their hold on our country. More swift-boating and far worse is on the way – just wait and see!

    There’s where you and the TEA Party are in agreement, Perry. 2012 will be a continuation of 2010′s throwing the lying Socialist bums out of office and replacing them with Constitutional Conservatives so we can get this country out of the Socialist Hellhole the Democrat Party has put it (with the help of Big Government Ruling Class Republicans).

    Romney is inept? Gingrich? You’ve spoken highly of Romney here in the past. Must be that lousy memory at “work” again.

    Ironically, I doubt any of the current GOP candidates would be as inept as the current White House occupant.

  8. Romney is your best, relative to the rest of your motley crew, but cannot be pinned down on any particular issue, since he changes according to which way the wind is blowing, Hube. But against President Obama, he is the best you’ve got.

    And Hitchcock, I think the TEA Party is fast fading. Americans overwhelmingly are in favor of a Congress which is willing to compromise, unlike the TEA Party and those of your ilk. What have the TEA Partyers proposed about creating jobs, I ask?

    [Added: Actually, the candidate I like the most is Jon Huntsman, the only intellectually mature candidate of the bunch. Let us see how he does in New Hampshire, as I am predicting a surprise which may well launch Huntsman's campaign into one worth watching much more closely.]

  9. Actually, the candidate I like the most is Jon Huntsman, the only intellectually mature candidate of the bunch.

    Actual translation: Huntsman is the candidate who I most agree with.

  10. Hube: “whom”, not “who”. You need the objective case of the pronoun when it is the object of the preposition “with”! :)

  11. Actual translation: Huntsman is the candidate who I most agree with.

    Perhaps we can find a candidate you can agree with, Hube. Have any of them advocated mass genocide yet?

    You mean like the communists you so avidly admire? Or your countrymen who’ve subjugated the Maori into permanent second class status on your piddly islands?

  13. You mean like the communists you so avidly admire?

    Cite, please. Names of “commies I admire”.

    Or your countrymen who’ve subjugated the Maori into permanent second class status on your piddly islands?

    “Hei wakaritenga mai hoki tenei mo te wakaaetanga ki te Kawanatanga o te Kuini – Ka tiakina e te Kuini o Ingarani nga tangata maori katoa o Nu Tirani ka tukua ki a ratou nga tikanga katoa rite tahi ki ana mea ki nga tangata o Ingarani.”

    Gosh, don’t YOU look foolish? Again.

    Oh, and by the way…

    “PM asks Dana: “Who exactly are “Islamists”? How do you distingush between them and the one and half billion Muslims, Dana?”

    Unfortunately, Dana responded with a George Bush answer. My answer is: we don’t distinguish. When my father arrived in Normandy in 1944 he shot every German he came across, whether or not they were Nazi’s. When my uncle Tom flew his B-17 over Berlin he bombed everybody, not just Nazi’s. When a country declares war on you they are all your enemy. When a religion declares war on you they too are all your enemy. Until such time as moslem’s either surrender or declare they will kill their own terrorists in the name of world peace, I say kill them all and let Got sort them out. That’s how you win, anything else is doomed to failure. ”
