Obama's new politics

By Dave Weinbaum

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | What a difference a weak makes.

That's not a typo. That represents the state of the Democratic National Ticket.

Barack Hussein Obama's messiah status is challenged by facts, common sense, and the wry humor of a fresher face than his own. Result? His poll numbers are heading where whale feces reside.

Obama is no longer able to count on a fawning press, for they now stalk new, more attractive flesh, one with a smart irreverent way of kicking Obama's butt all over the USA.

John McCain caused all this. He duped Barack just as Judas deceived Jesus. Where in the rules does it say that McCain could pick a star? It was scripted he choose Romney, Huckabee, Pawlenty, or even that old liberal crossover, Joe Lieberman.

And the ultimate cut of all? McCain picked a woman! Republicans can't do that…can they?

Hotel executive, pillar of the St. Louis black community, and Obama supporter, Becky Crosby asked, "Why is Barack so concerned with Sarah?"

Why indeed?!

This begs the question of the strategy Barack injected into his waning campaign. Clearly hurt by Sarah, Barack invoked "lipstick on a pig", and Governor Palin's qualifications when his don't measure up. Now he's assaulting moose land with a pack of scavenging lawyers for the sole purpose of destroying Sarah, her husband, and their children.

Now that's the politics of hope for other woman that want to invest their careers exploring Hillary's 18 million cracks in the glass ceiling.

Obama backpedaling as fast as he can

Barack, in a desperate attempt to get his mojo back, will say and do anything to get elected. He's put his soul up for sale for the price of your vote. I guess he's following Sarah's example when she put that jet, a leftover from the last Alaskan Governor's reign, on eBay.

Now straight from the Ron Popeil School for Vote Selling, here's some change Obama wants you to believe:

  • May have been over the top on abortion issue (guess infanticide is a bit much for the average American not as "progressive" as Barack.)

  • Might want to keep Bush's tax cuts around during the hard times…saving the mass wealth distribution transfer to non-taxpayers until after he's elected

  • Willing to listen to commanders on the ground in Iraq before he waves the white flag

  • Recognition of what everyone else seems to know. THE SURGE WORKED! Willing to drill, (but only his dentist will know for sure.)

Dang, throw in a Pocket Fisherman and hair growing miracle rub, and I'M in! Set that vote for Barack and FORGET IT!

And if you're not buying yet, Joe Biden will be gone from the ticket any day now. Obama will have no choice but to appoint the Clintons…I mean Hillary as his VP.

A child should never have to wonder if its parents love him

As to the abortion issue, Barack pontificated on the right of doctors to let botched abortion babies die. Then he voted against a bill protecting same, by depriving them of all care; a death of dark, cold, love deprivation. This is a judgment made by the same man that recently claimed the concept of whether life begins at birth or before was above his pay grade.

My thoughts go back to the Palins' four year old daughter, Piper, holding her four month old Down syndrome brother Trig in her lap. The little girl wet her hand on her tongue and lovingly stroked Trig's hair into place. She repeated this several times. What became apparent was the lie to Obama's portrayal of caring for the weak and needy.

There are a lot of Americans that are beginning to understand that the job Barack is applying for is above his pay grade also.

Hey, if you lose the senate gig, I'm sure you'll be able to get your old job back as "Community Organizer."
