"With Obama surging after a series of key wins last week, supporters eager for a chance to see him in the flesh braved freezing temperatures and filed politely into a near interminable line that stretched all the way across campus.
Personally I hope that Barack Obama wins over Hillary Clinton. There are many reasons for that hope, probably the top reason being that she is an immoral relativist opportunist fraudulent supporter of evil such as murdering unborn babies and sodomy. So there. But there are other reasons, including the easy chance Republicans have of slam dunking Slogan Boy once he gets the Dem fools' nod.
Forget issues. He's the man who wraps up JFK, Martin Luther King, Jr., Mandela - for blacks and whites, particularly women and children - and the young who can vote. Mob hysteria - mob psychology - could win the November ballot for Barack Obama. There is no doubt about it. It can sweep across the nation, grow and grow and grow, until talking about the nation's pressing matters will fly out the window.
That young twerp has nothing to him but slogans. Obviously he has audiences who are thirsting for nothing but flimflam; otherwise, Obama's groupies would not wow him as they do. They howl. They weep. The clutch. After all, they're not constituents. They're groupies caught up in Obamamania. And for those who know what group psychology can do, there is no question that that kind of phenomenon can carry on for a long, long time - sometimes decades. To a logical mortal it is downright frightening as well as shivering to listen to the string of tin-pan-alley slogans Obama can sling in a twenty-minute speech. "Change." "Unite." And so forth.
"I understand your problems. I know where you are. I know what it's like. And we're going to make a CHANGE about all this in Washington. We're going to UNITE America" he says, but all the while The Boy has no idea how he's going to produce the rabbit out of the hat. But the trick is promised. And the fools go for it.
What can Republicans do? They can stay with the issues and present them from a moralist base, praying that God will honor an ethical run for Pennsylvania Avenue. The Republicans can hope and work for the logical who believe in what is right for America. Republicans can vote, not stay home because of some gripe. Republicans can cast their ballots for the person who stands for what makes ethical sense.
American needs far more than a smart mouth with rabbit in hat. Yet that's what the Dems are falling for. Then let Obama be the Dem win. The Republican candidates, no matter McCain or Huckabee have substance. One of the commentators predicted that the Obama venture is all style rather than substance. She got it straight. Style rather than substance. Republicans are substance as well as style. But substance carries the heavier weight - every time. It truly won't take much to blow away the Slogan Boy. No hammer. No baseball bat. Just a puff of Republican sensible will do it.
