The backwards world of Cynthia Kounaris

I’ve made the Satchel Page/​Jackie Robin­son vs Pump­sie Green argu­ment con­cern­ing Obama in the past, via Allah­pun­dit Cyn­thia Kounaris is try­ing to make it via Palin and Bach­mann:

Now, back to the bad news. The first woman elected as pres­i­dent of the United States has to be excep­tional. Supe­rior. The smartest, best edu­cated and most ratio­nal per­son in the room. So, not Palin, not Bach­mann. Why? Because fail­ure is not an option.

Never Mind that Palin had an 80+ rat­ing in her state before McCain picked her for Veep and the left decided she must be destroyed (unsuc­cess­fully by the way). Never mind that in blue Min­nesota Bach­mann wins elec­tion after elec­tion and her Tea Party Cau­cus is the sin­gle most impor­tant group in the house. They are not good enough even through Bach­mann is win­ning debates in rooms full of men.

And tell me Cyn­thia how is it that in Wis­con­sin that went the route Palin fought in per­son, is gen­er­at­ing sur­pluses while Cal­i­for­nia going the Obama way, is los­ing Ama­zon?

What lit­tle cred­i­bil­ity her argu­ment might have hoped to com­mand dis­ap­pears with a line more suited for the first week­end in April than the first week­end in July:

Barack Obama car­ries that bur­den for African Amer­i­cans. Hap­pily, he car­ries it well. Regard­less of your pol­i­tics, you have to admit (really, you have to!) that he is well-​educated, com­pe­tent, ratio­nal, even-​tempered and intelligent.

For the moment lets for­get Palin’s & Bachmann’s degrees. Our pres­i­dent is so even tem­pered that his spokes­peo­ple call net­works if he is insulted.

He is so com­pe­tent that Blacks vot­ers tell him to his face they are exausted of defend­ing him

His eco­nomic stim­u­lus pro­gram (opposed by Palin & Bach­mann) is so suc­cess­ful that busi­ness receiv­ing funds rather than hir­ing as promised go bank­rupt:

And appar­ently the left out­side of Cyn­thia Kounaris thinks so much of him that he is beg­ging for $5 bills and can’t gen­er­ate suf­fi­cient sup­port on TV shows on MSNBC where democ­rats out­num­ber repub­li­cans 101.

But he flunks a more basic test. I talked to two women last week who were stay­ing with rel­a­tives because they had lost their house. When I asked them about the pres­i­dent they told me, the pres­i­dent thinks he is a movie star and is not inter­ested in them.

I would chal­lenge Cyn­thia to come with me door to door to busi­nesses in blue Mass­a­chu­setts and repeat that line about Obama. I sus­pect even if her left­ist beliefs are a reli­gion the looks she would get would from those small busi­ness own­ers would con­vert her fast.

I’ve made the Satchel Page/Jackie Robinson vs Pumpsie Green argument concerning Obama in the past, via Allahpundit Cynthia Kounaris is trying to make it via Palin and Bachmann:

Now, back to the bad news. The first woman elected as president of the United States has to be exceptional. Superior. The smartest, best educated and most rational person in the room. So, not Palin, not Bachmann. Why? Because failure is not an option.

Never Mind that Palin had an 80+ rating in her state before McCain picked her for Veep and the left decided she must be destroyed (unsuccessfully by the way). Never mind that in blue Minnesota Bachmann wins election after election and her Tea Party Caucus is the single most important group in the house. They are not good enough even through Bachmann is winning debates in rooms full of men.

And tell me Cynthia how is it that in Wisconsin that went the route Palin fought in person, is generating surpluses while California going the Obama way, is losing Amazon?

What little credibility her argument might have hoped to command disappears with a line more suited for the first weekend in April than the first weekend in July:

Barack Obama carries that burden for African Americans. Happily, he carries it well. Regardless of your politics, you have to admit (really, you have to!) that he is well-educated, competent, rational, even-tempered and intelligent.

For the moment lets forget Palin’s & Bachmann’s degrees. Our president is so even tempered that his spokespeople call networks if he is insulted.

He is so competent that Blacks voters tell him to his face they are exausted of defending him

His economic stimulus program (opposed by Palin & Bachmann) is so successful that business receiving funds rather than hiring as promised go bankrupt:

And apparently the left outside of Cynthia Kounaris thinks so much of him that he is begging for $5 bills and can’t generate sufficient support on TV shows on MSNBC where democrats outnumber republicans 10-1.

But he flunks a more basic test. I talked to two women last week who were staying with relatives because they had lost their house. When I asked them about the president they told me, the president thinks he is a movie star and is not interested in them.

I would challenge Cynthia to come with me door to door to businesses in blue Massachusetts and repeat that line about Obama. I suspect even if her leftist beliefs are a religion the looks she would get would from those small business owners would convert her fast.
