Here’s Obama, there’s Obama…

Notes from a Patsak:

The key to victory was not who wins a few cherry-picked states that the Clinton campaign and the Media had told us were important. The key to understanding Obama’s victory is realizing that every vote and every voter matters.

Below… play the song, mentally replacing the word, llama with Obama…

Hillary Clinton played a polite and fearsome card game

Some say Hillary was dealt a bad hand and that Obama was counting the cards. They say Barack even saw the deck, marked the aces, and dealt Hillary that bad hand.

Don’t believe a word they say. It’s all untrue. They just can’t handle the truth. It’s that simple.

Hillary Clinton may have thought she came to a poker game; she put on her best poker face and started the bluff before she sat down at the table. Meanwhile, Americans humored her like we humor a batty aunt at the family reunion. Her campaign supporters even gave her a lucky deck of cards from Trump’s Taj Mahal.

But if any bad hands were dealt to Hillary, they were dealt by a smug and racist Democratic National Convention (DNC) – good old boys that were just too smart for their own britches. The good ole DNC could never have imagined in their worst nightmare that a black man could win the hearts of America- not as long as mint juleps were still served in frosted sterling tumblers – somewhere in the good ole USA.

How wrong they were!

Obama is standing with Americans at the gates of Jericho. And the walls are crashing down around the DNC’s smug, pork belly grins. The cloud of dust can be seen from across the pond as Europeans wonder what is going on with their American Masonic brothers… and sister. Barack Obama will stand in the way of progress, power, and the brave new world order.

So, Hillary played a polite and fearsome card game. But what does a card game have to do with a presidential nomination?

Nothing. And that may have been Hillary’s greatest mistake.

Obama’s presidential campaign began with him walking

Meanwhile, Senator Barack Obama went on the campaign trail for the American presidency. The silver-tongued prophet from Illinois spoke to Americans about a different kind of freedom and democracy than has been bandied about for far too long. He spoke with them about hope, change, and a promised land.

The Illinois prophet hinted to Americans about the long march through the desert, the lean years, and the trials that would be our milestones on the way forward. But no one was paying attention to his emphasis on us owning the hardships of the journey ahead. Frankly, we stopped listening when he mentioned the promised land and we got lost in our bright, shiny, happy fantasies.

The more Obama talks, the more we can believe that everything is going to be ok, but even the Illinois prophet knows that divine mercy doesn’t quite work that way. We will need to fully repent of our sins before mercy will fall from the heavens like a gentle rain. And, knowing our stubborn and proud hearts, there will be no repentance- not anytime soon.

The Senator is not to be faulted for our stubbornness. In fact, I suspect that we will disappoint him and break his heart to pieces long before he disappoints us. It is not easy being a prophet; God does not make it easy on his closest friends. In other words, God usually makes it harder on the prophets than on the people. That’s how it reads in the Bible.

Historians and Media

Feminists will write that American prejudice against women prevented Hillary from getting the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination. However, they would prefer not to mention that it was the progressive and liberal nomination that she lost. They would also prefer not to mention that she lost against a black American man.

It will be just like how DNC good old boys and Hillary’s campaign leaders have attempted to discount state wins, distract us from the personality of the candidates, and distort the state of the race, Obama has won more delegates, more states and more votes than Hillary. And a lot of people believed Hillary still had a chance four weeks ago when she had nothing.

Ok, she had spin.

More than half of the votes that Hillary has won so far have only come from five states. In four of those five states, polls show that the Illinois prophet would be a stronger general election candidate against McCain than Clinton. Perhaps, Hillary got as far as she did because she is the Media darling and the Media’s choice.

Disinformation and spin have never been so thickly and professionally applied by the Media and major news networks as it has in the nomination of the 2008 Democratic presidential candidate. In fact, no rockstar journalist mentioned how Hillary has recently lost the support of many superdelegates – Governors, Members of Congress, and party officials who have a vote at the Democratic National Convention in August.

Moral of the Story

The key to victory was not who wins a few cherry-picked states that the Clinton campaign and the Media told us are important. The key to understanding Obama’s victory is realizing that every vote and every voter matters.

    I completely agree! I get the sense that what he sees in the American people is something that doesnt really exists. His ambitions allow him to ignore his misgivings though.

Speak from your heart!
