Barack Obama: Dems choose B.O. over Hillary: But will choice leave Party holding its nose in November?
by Daniel T. Zanoza, Executive Director
Barack Obama (B.O.) without a teleprompter makes Elmer Fudd sound like the late Winston Churchill. His wife was never proud of America before the year 2008. If his former Pastor donned a sheet, he could give a good impression of the Grand Cyclops of the Ku Klux Klan. He hangs out with people who attempted to blow up the Pentagon. One of his favorite orators is the "Reverend" Louis Farrakhan. He thinks there are 57 states in America. He believes people who take faith seriously and exercise their Second Amendment rights are "bitter." Once upon a time, he refused to wear a flag pin on his lapel. In the past, he balked at putting his hand over his heart during the Pledge of Allegiance or was it the National Anthem? Heck, what's the difference to him. He believes terrorist nations, including Iran, are minor problems that can be brushed away with a bit of his inescapable charm. In fact, he believes direct negotiations with the leaders of terrorist nations is just fine. He wants to make the United States energy independent, but he won't advocate offshore drilling, tapping into shale resource oil reserves, he doesn't want to drill in ANWR and he's against nuclear energy development. And to put frosting on a very foul tasting cake, B.O. wants to tax everything, including our memory. (Yes, this is an old joke, but it seems to work every time.) Finally, he barely huffed and puffed across the finish line in his race against Hillary Clinton to be the presumptive Democratic Party's presidential nominee.
On the plus side, he has the dominant media in his pocket--which some might see as a blessing and others might compare to using a rattle snake as a belt for some loose pants. If you smell something, it won't be B.O. himself because I'm sure the cologne he uses is more expensive than all the clothes in my wife's wardrobe and mine combined. But there might be a foul air emanating from DNC Headquarters these days because, as B.O.'s negatives go up, that Democratic dream of again inhabiting the White House is flying away--like a smelly vulture, after gorging itself on a meal of Democratic hopes.
Therefore, B.O. may be the operative word this campaign season for the Dems. But it may be a fragrance they won't like.
