Default Karl Rove: Obama is lazy?

Hard to believe he said this, but it's a sign of what's to come:

He wrote that a month ago. Wonder if he's changed his tune at all.

Let's face it -- if the Democrats paid attention to racial differences -- the Republicans will not. They don't have too. Black voters make up hardly any of their base so they don't need to pay attention to them.

I was reading some of Karl Roves dirty tricks tonight -- calling up Republican voters and asking them how they would feel about John McCains illegitimate black baby.

I don't think the dems have a chance in this race if they don't nominate Hillary.

I have to agree. Obama has been treated like a little media darling thus far. If he thinks This is going to be a "Kinder Gentler" campaign, he's sadly mistaken. The Republicans are in the fight of their life here. Why else do you think they are going to have that miliary show-trial, find the 6 9/11 guys guilty, and hang them before the election is over?

And let's not forget Obama's drug use. They will paint him to be a "crack head frrom the ghetto". They will attack him over the fact that his record is more Liberalk than Ted Kennedy. Hell, they'll attack him BECAUSE of Ted Kennedy's attempted Camelot Coronation. There is NO way that Obama can win the general election. He will be the next George McGovern if he is nominated, you can count on that.

Frankly, I think that might be why he has "rescheduled" his meeting with Edwards. I think that that meeting might not be an endorsement meeting at all. I think that Edwards is involved in the process of negotiating a settlement between Hillary and Obama. Either that or Hillary is going to get Edward's endorsement. Why else would Obama have "scheduling conflicts"? He's already been walking around as though he HAS Edwards' endorsement. Maybe not so much? It sure will be a huge embarrasment if he doesn't get it, won't it? :-)

That presumes that voters are every bit as ignorant, bigoted, lazy and trifling as is presumed.

Clearly, voters are saying that they're tired of that kind of politicking. They're no longer attracted to that kind of politicking. Their political outlooks are broadening. And as that is further established, the candidates will have to bring more to the table than the biggest knives and the dirtiest smear tactics.

Rove is a brilliant political planner. Evil and corrupt, IMO, but brilliant.

Yet, you keep participating and initiating dirty smear tactics against Hillary, Bill, and their supporters....

Have any of you ever thought that the Republican party might be setting the Dems up for the next Carter-esque presidency? Look at the mess the Republicans have made of the country. Seems to me that if they let the Dems have this one, they pawn off their problems on the Dems, who fight to fix those problems and have to deal with the really tough aspects of starting to get them cleaned up. Then in four years when the Dems have "failed" (because honestly, we all know it will take longer than that to get things fixed) the Republicans can sweep in, declare the Democrat rule a failure and present themselves as the shining white knight coming to save the country. Of course, by then things will have started on the upswing, but the sheeple have a hard time seeing things in terms of the long run, and so they'll take the bait, and put the Republicans back in office.

Just a thought. It's early, and I haven't had any coffee yet.
