More food for thought today from Big Tent Democrat:
Would a Democrat say:
There’s really no difference between what happened in the Bush years and the Clinton years; that there’s not much difference in how small-town Pennsylvania fared when Clinton was president, and in this decade when Bush was President.
Or would a Democrat dispute that point? In a way, there is a certain clarity that is being reached in the Obama blogworld – they want the Clinton part of the Democratic Party and the Clinton legacy demolished and destroyed. I personally think that leads to political suicide for the Democratic Party. But the Unity Schtick does not appear to extend to fellow Dems from the Obama blogs. Their hatred of Bill and Hillary Clinton has become more important to them than Obama’s chances of winning in November.
And speaking of the hatred…
Members of the progressive blogosphere today applaud Barack Obama for his “subliminal cultural reference” aimed at Hillary Clinton. There’s nothing progressive about this crap from the Big Boyz in the Blogosphere. What the f*ck is wrong with these guys?
Obama took some heat in the debate last night, some real heat for a change and now, he’s using projectionism to “twist the knife a little bit.” But that’s what he does, isn’t it? All the while claiming to be running a “clean campaign.” And he gets boosted every time by the Big Boyz cheering him on and helping to “twist the knife.”
Finally, I’ll note in my opinion many of these same “progressive” blogosphere infected with “progressive derangement syndrome” did diddly, yes, diddly to support John Kerry in ’04. They nit-picked at every little thing he did (I’m talking to you Markos) or didn’t do, often helping to reinforce the negative from the wingnuts. Same story, different candidate.
Anyone who thinks that these holier than thou, so called “gate-crashers” will support Hillary Clinton whole heartedly if she becomes the nominee, can think again. They won’t. They’ll spend the months between the convention and the general election pissing and moaning about why Obama shoulda been the nominee (like they did in ’04 over Dean) and they will tear down HRC at every opportunity. Mark my words.
