Clinton 1916 17,802,300
Obama 2154 17,501,751
If you liked 2000 you’re probably happy with this. Or….maybe not… Hillary is now being attacked, yet again, here is an excerpt from No Quarter; first Roger Simon of The Politico:
But her fighting words only increased the need for Obama to show that he can be strong, tough and in charge. Clinton’s unwillingness to recognize Obama as the victor only increased the need for Obama to act like
a president and not like a doormat. And denying her a vice presidential slot may be a way of doing that.
Next PaganPower of No Quarter:
And according to Simon, Obama is not going to be wasting his time trying to bring Hillary supporters into the fold.
It has been a hard-fought and sometimes bitter campaign, but Obama is not, one of his senior advisers assured me Tuesday night, going to spend a lot of time in the next few months wooing Clinton supporters whose feelings may be hurting.
“I think there are always immediate feelings of disappointment and anger,” Anita Dunn said. “But in the months ahead, he must appeal not just to the constituency groups who favored her in the primaries, but those he wants in the general election, and that includes independents and Republicans.”
Another Obama adviser, who asked not to be identified, said that he was not worried that Clinton supporters would stay angry.
Obama seems to have adopted the Alfred E. Newman “What, Me Worry?” campaign slogan. He does look a little like ole Alfred. In fact he looks a lot like him if you think about it. Especially those ears. And a MAD candidacy is all too evident.
Then the scary stuff begins.
“At the end of the day,” he went on, “Hillary supporters will look at John McCain and decide they are not going to vote for a man who will put judges on the Supreme Court who would overturn Roe v. Wade.”
I know it may come as a shock to Obama supporters but the President does not put justices on the Supreme Court. That is done by the US Senate. The same Senate now controlled by the Democrats that gave us the likes of Chief Justice John Roberts. So enough with these false boogeyman stories. They are all lies. But then again lies have been the core theme of the Obama Cult and their DNC and MSM enablers.
It is stories like these that we will all see in the coming weeks. Because the MSM (Obamedia), the DNC and the Obama Cult are going to do everything they can to minimize our importance. To them, nearly 18 million Americans that supported Hillary are inconsequential. As Hillary said of Bush, the same applies to Obama. And his political team made it very apparent last night.
To Obama we are The Invisible. He doesn’t care about us. He isn’t going to spend his time wooing us. He would rather try to make up the difference with Republicans. Now thats a Democratic party to be really proud of. Something I am sure Howard and Donna fully approve of.
PaganPower’s point about SCOTUS is right on. The fight for the Supreme Court is over. Obama helped put Roberts and Alito on the court; another example of his great judgment we hear so much about. Like voting for every single supplemental appropriation Mr. Decider has ‘requested’ for the Iraq ClusterFuck. The Corporatist wing of the Rethugs is in charge now and they have got what they want on SCOTUS a bunch of folks who believe that America must be made safe for any corporate excess deemed necessary for ‘maximizing shareholder value’ they are not going to let the Evangelicals fuck things up by overturning Roe vs. Wade. All of which is by way of saying SCOTUS is lost to progressives for a generations and Obama helped that happen. STFU about how we need him to ‘protect the court’. It’s delusional talk.
Bottom line: Obama, as he has all along, views any dissent from his views exactly as George W. Bush does. Of no importance and something that he can and will ignore. Welcome to the New Fascist Democratic Party™. Hope ya like it. ‘Cause according to Obamacans, ‘There is no choice…’
