Will the Real Obama Please Stand Up February 10, 2008

Here we have the Left-wing citing a litany of links to prove that Obama is a right-winger.
Make Them Accountable / He ain’t a saint: A citizen’s guide to Barack Obama

And then we have the leading Right-wing magazine saying that “Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., was the most liberal senator in 2007, according to National Journal‘s 27th annual vote ratings.”

As long as Obama can continue to succeed by just delivering his formidable inspirational message, he can be the “Big Tent”, which will continue to be filled with our hopes. As he said in his 2004 keynote speech at the Democratic Convention: “There’s not a liberal America and a conservative America — there is the United States of America.”

Just like the business cycle, there is the political cycle. There was the Kennedy-era swing to the left and the Reagan counter-swing to the Right. Now with both houses and the presidency held by the Republicans the swing is going back the other way again. With the same party leading the House, Senate & Presidency, the Democrtas will over-reach, just like the Republicans just did, and there will be another counter-reformation. That is the rythmn of life, of change. You can make the analogy back to the counter-reformation against Martin Luther’s revolt from the Catholic Church (the dominant political party of the Middle ages). So if its the Democrats turn, I would gamble on Obama, an unknown, over Hillary, a known.

A school-mate, from a prominent Republican family who is working for Obama, says he is a quick-study and may surprise us. If the Democrats blow it, then the pendulum will swing back again to undo the damage.In the meantime it would really mess with the rest-of-the-world’s head and their preconceptions about the US to elect Obama, especially the Jihadists.

Solis Doyle, is dispensable, she has served her purpose to help us win the latino vote in the big states. We no longer need her or the latino vote to capture the white house. The women vote will now carry the Hillary campaign the rest of the way. Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton replaced campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle with longtime aide Maggie Williams on Sunday. Ms. Clinton believes Maggie Williams is a better choice to target the women vote. Clinton said in a statement. “I am lucky to have Maggie on board and I know she will lead our campaign with great skill towards the nomination.”
