Attention all conservative Republican nervous nellies that have declared defeat ad naseum for the last 23 months based on the refusal of our candidate to aggressively attack the opposition: The McCain-Palin campaign is taking the gloves off and attacking Obama's radical leftism.
Baseball happens every Spring. Democrats get exposed for the out of the mainstream leftists they are every fourth October just in time to lose the presidential election.
Like many of the teeth gnashers here, I wish we would expose liberal Democrats for the intellectually and morally bankrupt forces they are 365 24/7, rather than join in the MSM's denial and cover up of the vile, failed policies advanced by McCain's "honorable" friends in Congress. If we did, we would have built oil refineries and nuclear power plants since 1978; drilled for oil off the coasts of the Lower 48; appointed Bork to the US Supreme Court; taught a heroic version of history to our children in neighborhood schools; and made it impossible for a man that parked his butt in the pew of a Hate Whitey America church for 20 years, to even make it to Iowa.
But, one thing I do know from having been intimately involved in every presidential campaign since 1980 (the first five of which as a Democrat Party official): Liberal democrat presidential candidates get exposed before election day and lose.
Americans vote on one day (I know we have early voting now, but my point is that no candidate is "ahead" in March, April, etc., despite polls ad nauseum.). Most Americans do not live and die for politics like most of us bloggers. They know that they don't have to, because they have voted before; spotted the leftist and prevented the leftist from owning the nukes.
They know its not hard to spot the leftist, and that they can do so near in time to the election.
McCain knows this too.
Moreover, unlike past years when not elected Presidents (and not re-elected) Carter, Mondale, Dukakis, Gore and Kerry held medium to large opinion poll leads in most months and days leading up to the last few days before the actual vote, Obama is already most well known for his racist pastor. They have heard Rev. Wright preach God-damn America sermons.
Now, they are about to meet a real world example of an acting out of Rev. Wright's views in Obama's first political fundraiser and radical education reform partner, unrepentant 60's radical terrorist, William Ayers.
Obama was the first chairman of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, a school-reform group of which Ayers was a founder. Ayers also held a meet-the-candidate event at his home for Obama when Obama first ran for office in the mid-1990s.
Obama is also an example of acting out, albeit is a more subtle way. Obama was asked by pastor Rick Warren about good and evil in the world and named Darfur and the streets of America. He expressed a desire to meet Chavez and Ahmedinijad before General Petraeus; took money from MoveOn.org that called him "Gen. Betrayus"; and later spoke to the group without denouncing their ad.
Sarah Palin took off the gloves yesterday:
"This is not a man who sees America as you see America, and as I see America," Palin said. "Our opponent, though, is someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect -- imperfect enough that he's palling around with terrorists who would target their own country. Americans need to know this. ... I think, OK we gotta get the word out. This is in fairness to the electorate we gotta start telling people what the other side represents."
"Apparently Senator Obama has no problem associating with someone like that, and somehow thinks that this unrepentant terrorist is rehabilitated," she told FOX News.
Obama and the left never speak, like Palin did of "America as a force for good" or of the oft used phrase of Ronald Reagan, "American exceptionalism." He never speaks of victory in Iraq, but only of "ending the war" and "protecting" the troops as if they were children victims. He has accused our troops of morally equivalent to the terrorists (who kill innocents as a tactic of war) in Iraq with regard to the killing of civilians.
John Kerry did the same. The whole party save for Joe Lieberman have accused President Bush of lying us into war or remained silent in the face of this scurrilous enemy-emboldening lie. They played politics with the credit crisis last week and with war for five years.
Obama and the leadership of the national Democratic Party are vile, and it appears the exposes the MSM branch of the Dem party refuses to do, will now be done for them and for the American Party.
It happens every four years. Mondale promised tax hikes. Dukakis thought the Pledge of Allegiance too offensive for school children but convicted murderers and rapists on furlough acceptable. Kerry conspired with the North Vietnamese; saw G.I. Joes (except for himself) as Ghengis Khan; and littered the White House lawn with metal.
The inevitable details of how and why liberals lose are being seen by more people. People are shifting their attention to the campaign. This is when it happens. Behold its glory.
And 2-3.5 years from now as we approach another election cycle, please remember that October before the election is early enough do all the stuff we want everyday and win the presidential election and remember all the pre-election polls that passe for daily sustenance that were wrong.
October non-surprises: liberals get known by those that need to know, when they need to know it.
