Ha! hahahahaha… it all sounds so familiar…No?
ABBIT TATTON, CNN INTERNET REPORTER: Wolf, this iReporter here captured a showdown between two Hillary Clinton supporters. The gentleman on the left identifies himself as a delegate now firmly for Barack Obama. The woman he’s speaking to identifies herself as an Independent voter who is not going to budge.
Take a listen.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It’s people like you is why Democrats keep losing elections.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I think it’s people like the Democratic Party.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
As the pertinent people miss the point:
BLITZER: Robert, they’re really going after some of those disgruntled, angry Hillary Clinton voters. We see the McCain campaign even doing these ads, trying to woo them over. And they’re apparently pretty successful based on the polls.
How are you going to counter that?
ROBERT GIBBS, SR. ADVISER, OBAMA CAMPAIGN: Look, we’re going to talk to them about the issues that they care about. What brought them to this convention is the need to change the direction of this country, to get our economy back on track, to reduce our dependence on foreign oils, to make our schools better, to cut health care costs, and to renew our standing in the world. The people that supported Hillary Clinton here know that the only candidate that can do all those things is Barack Obama.
That’s it, Gibbs, shove out the drone again. It is so dead.
I caught a round table of Charlie Rose tonight... and the usual gibberish was delivered about the pressing issue of ”those damned bitches”….
they are children talk to them like I talk to my twins at home (MacMahon, a sack of skin that Howard brought to DC),
Tell them to GET OVER IT! (Al Hunt, Orgasmic extraordinaire, long time friend to Abner Mikva, FOO)
A lot of the hesitancies are code words for race, and I would know I come from the working class (Connie Shultz, columnist and wif of Sherrod Brown)
incomprehensible mishmash, she was not digestible at all, in anyway and is impossible to quote (Michelle Norris, NPR) and then
Matthew Dowd got irritated. He said it is the JOB of Obama to bring the voters along. He and only he can bring them thru. Get to it.
Only one person got it. The fucking candidate needs to stand up and be responsible. The other thing Dowd said was that the most important critical issue, the economy, and neither candidate was addressing it. That the first that gets to it. will be “a leg up”.
It is so basic.
Oh the mueling and the bitching if Golden Boy loses. Meanwhile he meanders thru these odd little composed groups of 30, 40, 50, 60 schlubs that he does a little stick dance in front of..
This is so not working.
Another laugh… a caller into KGO says of Hillary’s expected speech for tomorrow (one of the topics for the hour) that “She’d better man up”
laugh laugh laugh…
