…as HillBuzz explains:
Sarah Palin is almost single-handedly bringing down Obamacare using only Facebook.
Let that sink in for a moment. The woman the Loony Left demonizes as Anita Bryant 2.0 and Tina Fey lampoons as some sort of space cadet, the woman the Lefties in Chicago constantly make the butt of their jokes or use as a straw (wo)man for whatever they need a villain for, posts remarks on Facebook that fuel Americans’ anger and resentment over the way Democrats are rushing through healthcare reform so recklessly.
The woman these Lefties claim is so, so stupid sure seems mighty smart to us.
Here’s her latest posting on Facebook…it is spot-on, perfect. If anyone doesn’t believe this woman is running for president, we just don’t know what to tell you
The problem with living in an echo chamber is you can’t hear anything else. As Palin supporters we need to take that to heart. Just because we are on her side that doesn’t mean we are immune to this.
True she re-writes history both on social security and medicare but on the campaign:
Obama won the election because his campaign had a great ground game and they had him, a super communicator who made the media swoon.
Poppycock the media didn’t swoon because of Obama’s skill as a communicator. They swooned because they projected onto him a compilation of all their liberal “virtues” and didn’t bother to vett him at all. They saw what they wanted to see.
Despite this Clift finally figures out this isn’t enough:
All the White House has to counter the opposition is Obama, and he’s not enough. The magic has waned. People don’t line up for miles to see him the way they did in the campaign. And judging by the anxiety showing up in the polls, voters don’t trust Obama enough on health-care reform to set aside their historic distrust of government.
This statement also has holes, he has the media and the SEIU, but the media are not believed thanks to stuff like this and this, and the SEIU’s tactics of infiltration or calling Black men niggers and sending them to the hospital if they seem to oppose the president for some reason just doesn’t capture the imagination of the masses.
Clift doesn’t recognize that his stuff is smoke and mirrors but sees that whatever it is, it’s not enough. This isn’t the word of someone at worship, it’s the word of someone who realizes the game is up and has to change. One last tidbit:
“When it comes to taking a punch, I don’t know whether you’re Muhammad Ali or Floyd Patterson,” Axelrod wrote to Obama in a November 2006 memo
Of course the comparison might be is unfair to Primo.
