or as RCP puts it Hillary’s Growing Shadow

(well, I didn’t like the shadow connotation) The article is – finally – a good explanation o that confounding mystery “why isn’t he doing better?”

It seems the more Americans get used to Barack Obama, the less they want him as president — and the more Democrats will soon regret not nominating Hillary Clinton.

If the polls are right, a public tired of Republicans is beginning to think an increasingly bothersome Obama would be no better — and maybe a lot worse. It is one thing to suggest to voters that they should shed their prejudices, eat less and be more cosmopolitan. But it is quite another when the sermonizer himself too easily evokes race, weekly changes his mind and often sounds like he doesn’t have a clue what he’s talking about.

Thank you, Victor Davis Hanson! That’s the closest anyone has gotten to the truth! he illustrated how we got there:

within weeks of the first primary, the outraged Clintons were accusing Obama of playing “the race card” — and vice-versa. Blacks soon were voting heavily against Hillary Clinton. In turn, Hillary, the elite Ivy League progressive, turned into a blue-denim working gal — and won nearly all the final big-state Democratic primaries on the strength of working-class whites.

The article goes on to other reasons, besides accusing everyone of racism

Second, many are beginning to notice how a Saint Obama talks down to them. We American yokels can’t speak French or Spanish. We eat too much. Our cars are too big, our houses either overheated or overcooled. And we don’t even put enough air in our car tires. In contrast, a lean, hip Obama promises to still the rising seas and cool down the planet, assuring adoring Germans that he is a citizen of the world.

and concludes

In a tough year like this, Democrats could probably have defeated Republican John McCain with a flawed, but seasoned candidate like Hillary Clinton. But long-suffering liberals convinced their party to go with a messiah rather than a dependable nominee — and thereby they probably will get neither.

Not too late.

In a great No We Won’t show, a called everyone loved urged us to support those people who suported Hillary and are now in jeopardy for it.

off the cuff he named Stephanie Tubbs Jones

and Sheila jackson Lee

and I am adding

Eric Massa

Eric Massa was a Clark drafter in 2003. Because in his army days, he had cancer and Clark personnaly saw that he was provided with the right medical care.

In 2003, his boss told him to stop going to Clark rallies or he’ll be fired. He resigned and continued to support Clark.Β  (later got to work for Clark’s campaign).

In his speech on May 31 he told us how much Hillary helped him in his first run for Congress and now. Then he stressedΒ  forgotten values such as loyalty – which gotten him applause – so soon after Richardson et al backstabbing.

Both Sheila and Stephanie are part of the Florida 14 – the ones who contested the electoral votes of Florida in 2000. Sheila jackson LeeΒ  spoke about death threats she received for her political choices.

If all PUMAs will contribute a modest amount to their war chest we could make a difference to people who deserve and need it.

For other important actions re: Donna Brazile – resulting from the same show, check Gary’s post at the Confluence

That of course goes with this motivational video from Geek Love

The only thing worst than a celebrity



is an overexposed one. Pew poll finds that 48% have had enough of Jr.Jr. It’s a good thing he went to Crawford err Hawaii already.

Not surprisingly, a very large number of Republicans say they have heard too much about Obama lately. But 51% of independents shared this opinion, and as many as a third of Democrats thought so too.

And that’s a genie hard to put back in the bottle. Not unlike the racism genie Jon Stewart revealed to us
