    Um...this New Yorker Story Paints Obama as a Cold, Calculating, Cut Throat Typical Politician


    The story left me with my mouth wide open. I knew Chicago politics was fierce, but this story paints Obama as some kind of self-absorbed, cut throat leech whose only desire was to rise to the next political level, regardless of who he had to step on to get there. The stories they tell from the different people show an arrogant person. They show him as someone who accumulates people for his immediate and long term needs, and then when he is finished with them, kicks them off the moving bus. I did NOT like this article. More importantly, the cover art didn't even go with the article. The cover art dealt with the smears and the article didn't even address it. What the hell?

    Actually the article is quite negative.

    ...and?

    Did I, or did I not, mention the word "payback" recently?

    Looks like DU can dish it out, but they sure as hell cant take it.

    Damming? It holds back a river or stream? Since the title of it is "The Politics of Fear" I would take it as a satire on what some people think will be happening in the Oval Office if he's elected.

    Obama's honeymoon with the far left is rapidly drawing to a close !If he doesn't 'dash' back to the 'Evil Dark Side' quick they will cry .Hillary isn't 'evil' enough to follow the dictates of the Maoists and 'EU takeover of America' fans so under the buss she went.

    They have NightMares of the American Electorate rising up and dumping their former poster boy and voting in a new Congress and Republican president !This 'No Drill' Congress will be in 'deep do do come November !

    Bingo. Somebody actually gets it. :D
    At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)
