Dem playbook: How to paint yourself into a corner

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Saving defeat from the jaws of victory…AGAIN! Can a tire gauge replace drilling offshore and solve the energy problem? Can power generators like wind and solar panels representing less than five % of our energy sources replace oil as our main energy supply within a decade? Can Nancy Pelosi's banged gavel, slammed congressional doors, and a declaration that one is jetting off on a five week cross country, zillion carbon emitting tour to save a book showing the audacity of scant (2737) sales save blue collar America from debilitating gas prices?

I don't think so. And neither do the American people.

There's nothing the Harvard educated, law review editor, Barack, the Speaker of the House, Pelosi, and Majority Leader of the Senate, Reid, has over the average citizen in the common sense department.

We beg countries that hate us to drill more, yet Democrats are unwilling to let their own country bore holes off shore, in ANWR, and oil laden shale. At current usage we have a 110 year supply of KNOWN petroleum and gas reserves in the above.

Such is the state of the Democratic "We will take no vote to help Americans while Bush is still in office" Party. Is there any question why a recent poll shows the Dem led congress approval rating in single digits, the lowest in history?

Polling trends and You Tube hits are indicative. McCain, post Obama's Magical Mid East/Euro Tour, has watched Republicans and himself take a You Tube turn for the better. His ads have overtaken Obama on the Net and some polls now show him ahead.

Paris "come see my OTHER video" Hilton put out a hilarious response to both McCain's and Obama's back and forth. She was articulate, poolside in her little tigress suit, sans prompter. Heck, even Jon Voight (Angelina's dad) risked blackball in films by coming out for McCain and against Obama. As Jimmy Durante used to lament, "Everybody wants ta get inta the act!"

Such is the current state of the once shoe-in presidential candidate and the snobbish; let them pay $10 a gallon for gas congressional leadership.

Now Dems are shooting gimmicks at you. They demand a surcharge income tax against big oil to pay $1000 to each citizen. What like the stockholders of those companies won't just raise prices even higher to cover it? And if we're looking at those making too much, maybe we ought to tax the Hollywood royalty that make ridiculous amounts of cash. I'm sure since many of them back Obama, they'd be MORE than willing to match the millions stolen I mean "taken" from big oil.to give another $1000 to every citizen. Then maybe you can convince them to move out of their energy gluttonous homes, give up limos, yachts and private jets.

SheeeeHeeee's baaaaack!!

The dems only option is leap over the paint.

In a position Houdini would find escapeless, the messiah now tries making drilling his idea. Why, I think he's been poll watching.

Then out of the other side of Obama's mouth, the messiah deflects by accusing John McCain and his growing supporters of being the worst kind of racists…without a smidgeon of evidence.

By the way, if you hate oil and oil is black, are you guilty of a race hate crime?

It seems almost as silly as warning the USA that the McCain/anyone that disagrees with me crowd will now attack him because he doesn't look like the rest of those presidents on our dollar bills. Just ask Bill Clinton about Obama using the race card against them. Then stand away for the explosion.

The entire Democrat Party is stuck. If Obama and the galactically clueless and arrogant Pelosi and Reid can't right the ship within the next couple of weeks, guess who may be coming to dinner…or worse put herself up for nomination at the convention?

The Clintons.

Is it just me or are you liberals having as much fun as I?
