It was Robert Kennedy Who Lost His Life in CA! His Children Support Hillary!

 

Pundits keep saying that Caroline and Ted Kennedy’s endorsement of Obama should help him in the California primary where Robert Kennedy lost his life on his way to the Democratic Party’s nomination.  Of course, they don’t mention that Robert Kennedy’s son and two daughters are supporting Hillary!  It makes no sense that those who looked up to and respected Robert Kennedy would vote against the candidate that Robert Kennedy’s children, (Bobby Kennedy, Jr., Kerry, and Kathleen Kennedy Townsend)  are supporting!  I think the media are getting their Kennedys mixed up!

Missouri’s Senator McCaskill ADORES Obama!

Look very closely at the tape of Obama on a jet plane explaining that he had not snubbed Hillary at the State of the Union.  While Obama explains that he had turned to Claire McCaskill to answer her question, Claire McCaskill (Senator from Missouri) is behind Obama on his right.  The look on her face is the look of a young teenage girl in love adoringly staring at Obama with her hand slightly resting on her cheek with fingers moving gently!  Sickening!  Not a very professional performance on the part of Claire McCaskill!  She needs to get the stars out of her eyes and advise Obama to get out of the race while he still has a political future in the Democratic Party!

Obama’s Political Future in Peril

I, as much as anyone else, was impressed and excited by Obama when I heard him give his speech at the 2004 Democratic convention.  I have always been a strong supporter of civil rights as well as women’s rights; so, I immediately thought that he would be an excellent Presidential candidate IN THE FUTURE and had high hopes for his ability to one day put an end to the all-white male dominance of the office.  I was disheartened when he decided to enter the race prematurely and before he had the necessary qualifications to run!

 

I don’t know who convinced Obama that now was the time for him to run for President, but they did him a major disservice!  Obama WAS NOT qualified to be President when he decided to run and HE IS NOT QUALIFIED to be President now. 

 

If Obama wishes to have a political future in the Democratic Party, he needs to realize that HE IS NOT GOING TO WIN THE NOMINATION and stop his verbal attacks on Hillary.  All he can do now is further divide his own party and help the Republicans win another Presidential race just as Ted Kennedy did with his run against Carter!

 

I heard Obama say that the people who supported Hillary WILL support him if he gets the nomination but he did not think the reverse was true.  How NAÏVE he is if he thinks I, or many people like me who support Hillary, will support him after he has attacked her so viciously!  He had better think again!  We’re angry and we are getting angrier with every attack statement he makes!  He’s NOT going to win the nomination and he is only hurting his chances of winning in the future!  Even if some of us who support Hillary were willing to vote for him in the general election, we WILL LOSE that election; and, I can guarantee you that he will never again get the nomination of the Democratic Party! 

 

Obama should look outside the limited circle of people who gave him bad advice when they advised him to run in the first place, and get someone who will give him a blunt, REAL outlook of his political future if he continues to divide his own party!

    

It’s time for Obama to drop out of the race, mend his fences, and go on the fight another day.  If he does not drop out soon, he will end up like Ted Kennedy, a promising young Senator who could never win the nomination of the Democratic Party due to his own mistakes!

Qualified Woman (Hillary) vs Unqualified Man (Obama)

If A WOMAN tried to run for President with Obama’s background, she would have been ridiculed and ripped to shreds by the media!  A white male would have been laughed off the stage in his bid for President if the only experience he had was two years in the Senate a few years as a state legislator!  Obama is getting a pass on his experience and qualifications to be President of the most powerful country in the world!

 

The media is doing the people of this country a major disservice by slobbering all over Obama just because he delivers an excellent speech!  It’s not fair to the country and it’s certainly not fair to African Americans in the long run!  The media compares Obama to JFK and Robert Kennedy but fails to compare the drastic differences in each of their qualifications to run for the highest office in the land!

 

Women have waited a long time to have a QUALIFIED candidate to run for the Presidency; and, now that we have one, the media is supporting an unqualified male for the position!  I don’t know why I should be surprised that the mostly white, male media would support an unqualified, African-American MALE over a supremely qualified female!

Obama is Republicans Choice NOT Democrats!

Republicans are biding their time behind the curtains just waiting, wishing, and hoping that they get to dance with Obama.  If they do, it will be Obama’s last political dance; and, we Democrats will have lost a shining star who was just beginning to shine but who could not help rushing onto the political stage a little too early!

 

Wednesday morning (1/30/08) on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Johah Goldberg, author, “LIBERAL FACISM” repeated a talking point that many Republicans are using.  When asked if conservatives could support John McCain as their nominee, he said: “Maybe, it depends; I think it’s a lot easier if Hillary is the nominee.  You know, I mean, Hillary is, you know, it’s, she’s the small pox vaccine that elicits all the antibodies on the right side!”  He went on to say that it’s just a much harder thing to predict how people would run against Obama!

 

Well, let me tell you something, the Republicans will have no problem running against Obama and they all know it!  The Clintons have beaten the Republicans over and over again; they know how to do it.  The Republicans KNOW in their hearts that they don’t won’t to run against Hillary. Be careful for what you wish, YOU MAY GET IT!

 

Republicans want the Democrats to THINK they want to run against Hillary; they are trying to influence Democrats to vote for Obama!  Goldberg was WRONG; it is not much harder to predict how Republicans will run against Obama!  I’ve watched Republicans run nasty, below-the-belt campaigns for over 35 years (McGovern, Dukakis, Gore, Kerry); and, I guarantee you that, if for some reason the Democrats lose their logical minds and vote for Obama as their candidate, the Republicans will chew him up and spit him out!  Obama is not ready for Prime Time; the Republicans know it.

Shame on Caroline and Ted Kennedy!

Caroline Kennedy’s mother, Jackie, must be rolling over in her grave!  The very idea that Caroline Kennedy would use her father’s image in such a way is disgusting.  I am sure that Jackie WOULD NOT have approved of such an unseemly use of JFK’s legacy!  If Caroline wants to become political, of course, that is her choice; but, she needs to do something on her own and in her own right first if she wishes her endorsement to be worth anything! 

 

I have no problem with Caroline Kennedy trading in on HER name but I do have a problem with her misusing her father’s name!  There’s no way she knows if he would have wanted his image used in a political commercial. Caroline does not have the right to use her father in a campaign commercial to endorse a candidate.

 

Ted Kennedy has earned the right to endorse a political candidate; but, shame on him for encouraging Caroline Kennedy to abuse her father’s image in such a manner!   Ted Kennedy does not have the right himself to abuse JFK’s legacy!  JFK was his brother but Ted Kennedy does not have the right in speeches to use JFK to endorse a candidate.  Neither Caroline nor Ted Kennedy knows for sure who JFK would endorse and it is beneath them to be abusing JFK’s legacy in this manner!
