It has now become fairly obvious that Barack Obama
will be the nominee for the Democrat Party. I say fairly because Hillary Clinton is still in the race and gives no indication that she is EVER going to pull out. As such with she and Bubba
still around and the track record of shenanigans
that follows the Clinton's, there is always a possibility that these two con artists can find a way of arm twisting their way to the nomination, especially at the Convention.
But unless the Clinton's can steal away a perceived
miracle Barack Obama
will face John McCain in the Fall and the General Election. Personally I want Hillary to stay around as long as possible including the Convention which looks to be her goal because the chaos is good for the GOP and continues to erode support among Democrats for their own party.
Even with the war that is taking place and brewing into a bigger conflict as each day passes, Clinton most likely will finally have to accept defeat come August and Obama
will be crowned as the DNC
nominee at the Convention heading into the final push leading a party that will be in shambles.
That in itself is one of the first reasons why Obama
cannot win in November
. The party he will be leading into the General Election is falling apart and even long time supporters are turning their backs on the DNC
because of the chaos and bickering that is taking place during the fight for the nomination. Many candidates for House seats are actually starving for donations because of the fight for the top of the ticket.
Daily reports from Democrats who are so disgusted with their party tell of supporters of both candidates who will NOT vote if their candidate loses or will actually vote for McCain. Calls are coming in on a daily bases to the Conservative talk shows like Rush, Hannity
and others from dissatisfied Democrats who are stating for the record that they will not vote for Barack Obama
if Hillary loses BECAUSE of the controversies and Obamas
failure to talk in specifics.
Another prime reason that Obama
cannot win in November is found in what have become known as the Reagan Democrats. These are Democrat voters who believe
in many of the social policies of Democrats but are gun owners, religious and have many fiscal conservative beliefs like less taxation.
The reason they have become known as Reagan Democrats stems from the two elections that President Reagan won in landslides. This large group of Democrats voted for Reagan
in both election because they did not favor the direction that the Democrat Party was taking with Carter in 1980 and Mondale in 1984. In both elections they voted Reagan for President and in local and House and Senate races voted Democrat
has distanced himself politically from the majority of these Democrat voters. His statements just prior to the Pennsylvania Primary about small town America clinging to religion and guns to take out their frustrations concerning the direction of the country, alienated this large group of Democrat voters and the results of the Primary proved this.
Hillary overwhelmingly won the gun owner vote, the church vote and middle class and Union workers. Though she won by less than two percent in Indiana, her victory among this group of Democrat voters was huge. Without the support of the, "Reagan Democrats, " Obama
does not stand a chance of winning in November.
This is just the tip of the iceberg for Obama
and losing in November. He has the ability to mesmerize
an audience of liberal and youth supporters because of his eloquent speeches and ability to stir
up liberal emotions. But his rhetoric has absolutely
no substance. He speaks
in vague generalities and well worded catch phrases of, "hope, change, " and ,"unity, " but without any details as to how this, " grand, " idea will come about.
When one actually digs into his policy it is obviously Socialist with many Marxists beliefs
and statements. He sees the Government
alone as the answer to everything and the people as followers of the all powerful entity that will take care of their every need or want. Taking away all personal responsibility and giving the Government total reign over every aspect of life.
He, in his generalists
of taking away from those that have, redistributing
the, "wealth, " for the good of the whole which is directly from the Communist Manifesto
written by Karl Marx in 1848. If one reads the ten planks of the Communist Manifesto
and compare them to the Obama
policy statements when they can be found the similarities are striking.
Setting aside the Marxist ideas that are presented by Obama
which in itself poses a danger that the American public will turn
away from, the very vagueness of his campaign
and the lack of substance combined with his well documented inexperience will come together for Obama's defeat in November.
He has excelled in the Primaries because his charismatic
nature, eloquent speaking
ability and calls for complete Government
control of all of America's, "troubles, " along with his anti -war stance and call for an immediate pull out from Iraq plays well to the liberal left and much of the core of the Democrat Party.
But in the push toward the General Election this , "message, " will not play well at all with Independents
and more Conservative Democrats, both of which he needs in large numbers to be able to defeat McCain and win the Presidency in November.
Additionally the controversies that have surrounded him with Jeremiah
Wright, Bill Ayers and others will not go away as some believe
just because he wins the nomination. In fact as November draws closer the scrutiny will escalate
revealing more skeletons
and re-emphasising those already revealed as more likely voters start to pay closer attention to the election.
McCain has been through several campaigns for National office and he is an open book. Obama
on the other hand is still very much a mystery and come September the digging will go even deeper then it has thus far. He has already balked at the scrutiny as he complained about questions concerning his character and association which are legitimate issues when
running for the Presidency. But Obama
does not consider them important.
The American people do and this Senator from Illinois will discover that his Marxists leanings, government control policies, inexperience, failure to even try to add any substance to his politics and those in whom he has willingly and readily associated himself with both now and in the past refusing to condemn until the polls showed that it was hurting him, all of this combined spells defeat for Barack
