IF he is "so good" and so skilledOriginally posted by: RY62
Maybe a large portion of the party, just like a large portion of Dems in general, would rather have the real candidate, with all of her faults, than the manufactured image of what the candidate should be.Originally posted by: Robor
And I think you're really reaching here. Just because Obama and Clinton are both similarly aligned with the general traits of the Democratic Party doesn't mean Obama is a 'better looking' Clinton clone. If you think Obama is being 'pushed to the front' by the party then why haven't the SD's finished this thing without the unnecessary bickering back and forth?Originally posted by: RY62
I think this thread actually answers many questions about who Obama is and why he's been pushed to the front.
Obama was, until recently, an unknown with little or no known, negative baggage and no solid issue positions. Hillary, on the other hand, represented most of the positions the Dems were looking for but had been under attack from the right for many years and therefore carried high negatives. I believe a plan was concocted to take all of the good points that Hillary brought to the table and project them onto the unknown candidate in an attempt to push the agenda without facing the battle. Whether or not that was a good idea remains to be seen. Because he appears to be a manufactured candidate, some see him as an "empty suit". Because he was unknown, we have to hope he has no negative baggage to surprise us before the GE.
You could be right and I might be a just bit crazy but my gut tells me something isn't quite right with Obama. I, like most of Clintons base, am a little older than most of Obama's base. I've been around for a while, and for sure I can be a little cynical, so when I look at Obama and listen to the hype it just feels fake. It's like someone is going to great lengths to sell us on the idea that the Messiah has come to save us. They want us to believe he's all the good without any of the bad. Maybe he is but it's going to take alot more than just a few pretty speaches and a well polished package to convince me.
WtF hasn't he united the party - or at the very least shut Hillary Up?
- i think this demonstrates it is not his "time" and he will have much more trouble with McLame's rabid Right - that has Zero Problem with calling him "anti-Christ" and whipping Racial Tension into a Frenzy.
Figure it out .. he should be the Clear Front-runner of his Own Party - long ago .. he is Not and he is taking damage right now and it will get worse ..
.. much worse
