Deeds sliding toward the wheels…

leave a comment »

The White House is claiming Virginia gubernatorial candidate Creigh Deeds didn’t take the   advice of His Oneness and failed to fully embrace the leader of the universe.    We can consider this preparation to allow Obama to escape any culpability for Deeds’ likely loss.    Is there enough room left to stuff Deeds under the bus?    There’s always room for one more.

On a related note,  the Obama  fundraiser in Massachusetts for Gov. Patrick  did NOT sell out,  despite frantic last-minute efforts and denials by the campaign.

Alinsky’s student flunking?

leave a comment »

Kyle-Anne Shiver has a marvelous piece on which of  Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals Barack Obama has failed to follow.

The golden child Obama has long been is starting to show some tarnish.    He seems irritated and somewhat frustrated that his lifelong habit of substituting charm and charisma for substance is suddenly proving insufficient.

As I’ve said before (probably ad nauseum at this point) His Oneness never cared what was in a health care bill so long as it put the health care sector under government control.    Once that is achieved,  what is to stop him from redistributing those resources to achieve the social justice he believes should be made to exist?

Shiver has another column on the American Way versus the Alinsky Way which you should also read,  because his dead-set against FOX News arises from his training in the system.
