NY Times Now Sees Obama As Liability For Ticket

Ok, ok, the headline is actually “GOP Now Sees Obama As Liability For Ticket,” but, sheesh, how did this possibly make it in to the NY Times? I have a little theory that the editor get drunk big time on Friday nights, so the actual reporters are free to write actual journalistic articles, as I have seen many times regarding good news from Iraq, but, sheesh! this is still the NY Times!

Senator Barack “no middle name” Obama is starring in a growing number of campaign commercials, but the latest batch is being underwritten by Republicans.

In a sign that the racial, class and values issues simmering in the presidential campaign could spread into the larger political arena, Republican groups are turning recent bumps in Mr. Obama’s road — notably his comment that small-town Americans “cling” to guns and religion out of bitterness and a fiery speech by his former minister in which he condemned the United States — into attacks against Democrats down the ticket.

Note: those racial issues are on the Democrat side, not the GOP side. We couldn’t care less about color or race, just, as Martin Luther King, Jr., put it, the content of one’s character, and what their policies are.

“The public, week by week, is becoming more familiar with his big-government, far-left vision for America,” said Ed Patru, a spokesman for Freedom’s Watch, an advocacy organization that is portraying Mr. Obama as ultraliberal in an advertisement running in Louisiana before a special election for a House seat.

“There were times when Republicans reacted with just horror that he would lead the ticket,” said Stuart Rothenberg, a nonpartisan political analyst. “Now there is not the sense of him being invulnerable, the magic bullet. I think there has been a major change.”

Maybe those in the big circles were worried, but, Mr. Hope And Change and, does he have anything else?, was a political neophyte who sounded good, which might play in Democrat elections, but not in a general election against a seasoned veteran.

Democrats say Republicans are going to vilify either Democratic contender and distort his or her record in an effort to weaken the nominee and drag down fellow Democrats.

They can say all they want, but, there is no need to distort Obama’s record: he has none, other then voting present. And saying he will capitulate to rogue nations, raise the hell out of taxes, and attempt to reduce the USA to the United Socialist States of America..

    He tanked today on Fox, Barack did. All the hype about “taking on Fox” whithered away. What a Marxist putz.
