No matter that Obama can’t get the white vote (no matter what he spends); no matter that Reverend Wright is a loose cannon ready to appear at his own whim; no matter that Wright has already told us that Obama was in the pews for 20 years listening and soaking up his America-hating rants (by saying that Barack denies it by calling him a “politician”).
With drastically falling poll numbers in North Carolina, the leftist enablers of Barack — Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann (and all his guests, Alter, Fineman, etc.), along with Rachel Maddow, Eugene Robinson, Suzanne Malveaux and most everyone on CNN, the cartoonish Huffington Post, NBC’s Today Show and The N.Y. Times are desperate to prop up the teetering Obama campaign.
First, they trotted out the “not proud of America” Michelle Obama. The New York Times is doing it’s part for “post-racialness” with its headline today, meant to calm Obama supporters: “Clinton May Be Hopeful, but Obama Rolls On” saying “Barack Obama continues to pick up superdelegates, leaving his opponent with dwindling options.”
In the meantime, the Obama campaign sent out Joe Andrew, former Clinton supporter and DNC Chairman, to say he was switching to Obama. Can you say “desperation”?
Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton continues to win the states that matter, win white voters, get into substantive discussions with Fox’s Bill O’Reilly, displaying a genuine toughness and grit needed to win in November (disclosure: I’m a McCain supporter).
But, no — the left wants none of Mrs. Clinton. She’s simply not hip enough for those who like to think of themselves as “progressives”. But, hipness, does not a winning candidate make: Hillary is the far better candidate for Democrats in the general election.
Instead, the enablers of Barack are saying “all aboard superdelegates”, trying to rush them onto the Titanic, before they have the chance to see that the boat is not structurally sound enough to handle the extremely rough seas ahead.
