Kennedy’s Turn On The Clintons – HOT!!!

The Kennedy clan has turned on the Clintons and are throwing their support to Obama.  Monday will be the worst day in the campaign for Hillary.  More leading Democrats are to follow . . .

 The reason is two fold, Bill Clinton’s harsh words about Obama, and his overt race baiting, the likes of which have not been seen since Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton campaigned.

 This may be the beginning of the end for Hillary

The Black Bill Clinton, Revealed

 Political Night Train thinks the following is one of the funniest articles to come along during this primary.

Funny thing, it seems to summarize Bill Clinton pretty well as an Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson black wantabe. Sorry Bill,

you ain’t got the right moves, even though you got the right values for ol’ time racists.

Knocked Up

(Ex-President Bill Clinton announced he will campaign door to door in South Carolina on behalf of Sen. Hillary Clinton’s candidacy in that state’s presidential primary.)

Knock, knock.

Who’s there?

Yo, it’s Bill.

Bill who?

Bill Clinton, the first black president and soon-to-be first gentleman. Let me in, bro.

Sorry, but I need to see some ID.

You’re kidding, right? OK, OK, I know what you want. I get this all the time. How’s this? (Clinton bites his lower lip.) Look familiar?

Nope, sorry. Can’t be too careful these days. Some angry white guy’s been impersonating Bill Clinton and trying to separate white voters from Barack Obama by marginalizing him as an affirmative action hire for the Oval Office. Bill Clinton would never do that, so I want to make sure you’re for real.

Hmm. I see your point. How’s this for identification?

(A shuffling noise is heard outside the house.)

What are you doing?

I’m starting a “Soul Train” line.

What for?

Andy Young told y’all he knew I was blacker than Barack because I know how to form a “Soul Train” line. If that’s not proof of my negritude, what is?

Please tell me you didn’t just say that.

Just talking black, bro, like Jesse and Al.

You mean like Bob Johnson talked black when he made it seem like Barack was a drug dealer, and Hillary just sat there?

Hey, don’t dis my man B.J. It isn’t every day a black billionaire stumps for a white woman senator against a Harvard-educated black senator with no criminal record but lofty goals. President Lyndon Johnson said we shall overcome, remember? B.J.’s wealth and politics are proof that we did.

(Heavy sigh) Ambassador Andy Young also said you were blacker than Barack because you probably had slept with more black women. He must have forgotten he was an apostle of Dr. King and thought he was Chris Rock instead. Besides, it was Dr. King, not LBJ, with whom civil rights activists sang “We Shall Overcome.”

Whatever. Why do you keep bringing up race? Barack made you do it to make me look bad, admit it.

No, sir. I actually can think on my own. Anyway, you brought up race first, not me.

Did not! Take that back! It’s the news media stirring up trouble. Did you see how I wagged my finger at reporters when I told them, “I did not have racial relations with that man, Mr. Hussein Osama?”

Yeah, I saw it. I had a deja vu, actually. And it’s Obama, not Osama.

You know the media is always biased against us black men, right?

Sir, I think you’re confused. The media has mostly defended you as playing hardball politics, while making Barack look like a whiner just ’cause he’s not afraid to confront your lies and set the record straight. By the way, I think that’s the Truth Squad coming up behind you on the sidewalk.

Truth? Barack can’t handle the truth. What does that kid from Chicago know about truth?

Apparently, more than you, sir. Lying got you impeached, remember? Doesn’t that make you partly responsible for the Bush II reign?

Nope. That was Ronald Reagan. Say, you wouldn’t really vote for a black Muslim who was educated at one of those madrassa terror camps, would you?

Sir, Barack Obama is Christian, not Muslim. And that school in Indonesia was not a madrassa. Yet your pals, most recently former Sen. Bob Kerrey, keep beating that dead horse. Isn’t that using post-9/11 fears the way Bush II has done?

After all I’ve done for you, we feminists have to stick together. Speaking of sticking, I should get some street cred for sticking it to the press, right?

Not exactly. Demagogues are notorious for blaming the press. Bushies do it all the time and have been masters at media manipulation. Sir, I’m afraid you’re wrecking your legacy of elder statesman by coming off as an egomaniac having a meltdown.

Not true! I’m at your front door because I need your vote to help make Hillary the first woman in the Oval Office.

Sir, under your administration, there were many women in the Oval Office, as I understand.

Stop twisting my words! I’m a lover, not a fighter. Besides, this campaign is about Hillary and one giant leap for womankind. It’s not about me. By the way, what do you think about me? Does this orange tie make me look fat?

Sir, if you aren’t careful, you’ll gain a reputation as Machiavellian and the new Karl Rove.

I can’t be Karl Rove. Rove’s not a brother.

Neither are you, sir.

There you go again, bringing up race.

The Bill Clinton (Negative) Effect

The Clinton Effect

26 Jan 2008 07:28 pm

It looks like Bill Clinton’s heavy-handed attacks on Barack Obama didn’t serve his wife well in South Carolina, with about sixty percent of voters saying Clinton’s actions were a factor in their decision in what looks to have been a landslide win for Barack Obama.

That, I think, is about as it should be. Team Clinton has consistently, and rightly, maintained that they’re within their rights to be tough on Obama. And so they are — politics is a contact sport. But that doesn’t mean that maximum viciousness is actually a good idea. You want to be seen as likable, fair, judicious, etc. and over the past few weeks the Clinton campaign has been making its candidate look like something other than the mature, experienced, sober-minded choice.

South Carolina Slams Hillary, Picks Obama

South Carolina rejects Bill Clinton but Democratic Party apparatus still working to sabotage Hillary into the nomination
Kirt Meham
Jan. 27, 2008

South Carolina told Bill Clinton to go back to his home and stop divisive racist politics that started in America since 1980. Obama gave his life’s best speech. The chanting was clear. ‘Yes we can’. Behind the scene the corrupt Democratic Party is eager to nominate Hillary through the back door. The game of super-delegates is on. Obama may win the primary and Hillary may get the nomination. That will the end of Democratic Party as we know it. The corruption, racism and stupidity of the career politicians are clear in America.

Bill Clinton Says Obama Is Just Like Jesse Jackson – WRONG!!!

Political Night Train senses a dramatic change in the Clinton’s political future.  It seems black women have finally come to their senses and repudiated Bill Clinton, the supposed first black president.  They’ve finally realized that Obama represents the future, the kind of black man, and kind of candidate, black or white they want in office.  The South Carolina primary exit polls clearly show that Bill has hurt Hillary’s standings with blacks.  For Bill Clinton to then say Obama is just like Jesse Jackson is probably the worst statement Clinton has made thus far, and an indication of just how far they are willing to go.  The Clintons have made race an issue, not Obama and now they see the effect for the first time.  As a race baiter, Bill Clinton has more in common with Jesse Jackson than Obama.  Both Bill and Jesse Jackson use race as an issue to divide the voters; both have had extramarital affairs, considered by many to be a moral value among black men and an indication that neither respects women.  This is the real basis for those who consider Bill Clinton to have been the first black President.  Perhaps we are now seeing the end of racially divisive politics as practiced by the Clintons.  So, ask yourself, do you want four more years of Bill Clinton’s moral values in the White House?  Do you want four more years of Hillary Clinton’s divisive politics, dividing us by race and class?  Or do you want four years of politics where we really begin to transcend the race issue?

Bubba: Obama Is Just Like Jesse Jackson

January 26, 2008 8:18 PMSaid Bill Clinton today in Columbia, SC: “Jesse Jackson won South Carolina in ’84 and ’88. Jackson ran a good campaign.  And Obama ran a good campaign here.”This was in response to a question from ABC News’ David Wright about it taking “two Clintons to beat” Obama. Jackson had not been mentioned.Boy, I can’t understand why anyone would think the Clintons are running a race-baiting campaign to paint Obama as “the black candidate.” 

Elvis Is Dead and Bill Clinton Is Bitter

Bill Clinton has attacked Obama repeatly over the past several months, each time showing a bitter side of Bill that few would acknowledge is there.  Bill is an angry man, and its beginning to show.  Deep within Bill is an anger few have seen.  It is anger about how he has been treated in the past, the lack of love in his marriage, and how he feels he’s being treated now.  George Stephanopoulos probably felt it the most, took anti-depressants to cope, and since his White House days, has on occasion talked about Bill’s “purple” fits, and “funks” or depressions.  One could make a case that Bill Clinton suffers from bi-polar disorder.  Thursday night Britt Hume, speaking to the Fox All Stars commented that Bill Clinton does not look well, he looks like something is wrong, mentally or physically.  Bill may in fact have some mental or physical disorder, but what is wrong is that the primary is going against him, and in a big way.  Bill Clinton did not expect he would be faced with a candidate like Obama, one that garners the same kinds of feelings from voters that he Bill evoked in the past.   Now Bill finds himself in the white man, white hair, white shirt crowd and he doesn’t like it.  In short, Bill is having his mid-life crisis a little late. 

 

Bill is running for re-election of himself, not for Hillary.  He is seeking vindication for his Impeachment, and another four years in the White House.  If Hillary is elected, Bill will take credit and assume co-President icy, even though Political Night Train believes Hillary will not allow him to stay in the White House.

Black Americans, Keep Dreaming – Hillary Wants To Be Yo’ White Nanny

Hillary’s race card argument is that it was not enough for the civil rights leaders to suffer and endure for their dream, but that they did’t have the wherewithal to act upon those dreams and make change happen.  By extension, Obama too can only dream and hope, he can’t act and effect change.  Hillary repeated this message earlier by saying that Teddy Roosevelt, FDR and LBJ “gave” black Americans the right to vote, the right to equal housing, the right to equal access.  The operative word is “gave”, as if black Americans were told to go to the back door and a white leader would “give” them a meal.  Hillary said they, meaning Presidents, got “big” things done because they knew that it was not just about the dream, it was about the results, and that’s what we have to do again.  What Hillary is saying here is it’s okay for you poor black Americans to dream, but when it comes to getting it done, you need me, your white nanny to do the heavy lifting for you.  That’s my burden and I’m here for you.
