2008 Election: Thoughts and more Projections

If you don’t know, I have a huge interest in politics…. not exactly sure where that’s going to take me, but I’m positive it will be very key in my future interests and jobs. ANYWAYS, I have been sitting on this a while, so it’s a little old. Since there aren’t any sports or TV of any kind worth watching, I stay tuned in to CNN constantly to stay up on the latest political talk. Well, Carl Rove is trying to tag my boy Barack as arrogant. That just isn’t going to fly, because simply put Barack is far from arrogant and the people that are going to decide the election aren’t that ignorant (the ones who want to control the election are.) I will concede that he has made some mistakes and comments that come off as arrogant, with the gun comment and the Obama seal…. but to anybody with a brain thats the furthest thing from the truth. You cannot get that kind of support on such a high level with the type of grassroots movement he has cultivated. Just doesn’t work.

Here’s a snippet of what he said.

“I will say yes, I do think Barack Obama is arrogant,” Rove said Tuesday night on Fox News, where he’s a contributor.

“Even if you never met him, you know this guy,” he said at a Capitol Hill breakfast, according to ABC. “He’s the guy at the country club with the beautiful date, holding a martini and a cigarette that stands against the wall and makes snide comments about everyone.”

And here is the whole article according to the CNN folks:

The most annoying/frustrating/irritating/generally lame thing about it all is that the GOP tries these tricks to detract from his campaign. It says a lot about how they view their loyalists. Fear mongering, divisive and negatively slanted attacks, diversion, misinformation and down right lies are the main ways they try to motivate their vote. It’s like the more ignorant, spoon-fed, and impressionable you are the better suited you are to vote Republican.

What is humorous about it all is the majority of the attacks, such as this have little to nothing to do with politics, in addition to not being true. I mean honestly, I hate to be a broken record, but can you have that many donors, volunteers, and support if you’re arrogant? To me it sounds like Rove and people of his ilk are bothered by the confidence/swagger of a politician who knows he has the support of the people to do what he wants. Because even if he is that guy with the fine wife, the drink and the cigarette, what does that have to do with being president?

As much as I hate those types of guys, they generally succeed at life. Like a Don Trump. Not sure what he’s good at, but he sure fits the description Rove is throwing out. Funnier than that is Trump ain’t even good looking and he has bad hair. So with those glaring disadvantages he still dominates the things a man wants to say he has and does, arrogant or not.

At this point I am more concerned about results, than perceived arrogance. So even if it were there who cares? Let’s focus on issues. Please. You’re better than that Carl and company. Really.

Here’s another election projection site. Check it out as well. Apparently its a little more conservative, but its a good road map to Obama ’08 as well!

    Yeah. If you’re going to attack someone, then at least pick something reasonable. By the end of this election cycle everything except the n-word will be thrown out there. Maybe even that. I’m just waiting for a fox news correspondent to refer to him as such…
