Obama's judgment

Aileen Williams
As a liberal-leaning Independent, I laugh at the recent cries by pundits and naysayers who question McCain's judgment in choosing Palin. McCain's judgment?  What about Obama's judgment?

Obama had access to a slam dunk for the Democratic Party - Hillary Rodham Clinton. Hillary, who represented 18 million votes.  Hillary, who, unlike Obama, consistently beat McCain in national polling for over 6 months running.  Hillary, who carried the Electoral College.  Hillary, who won the Swing States. Had the Obama campaign chosen to lift the blinders off their eyes, reality proved that despite the media's deceptive coverage of Obama's (free rock band, free beer, free food bribed) crowds, it was Hillary who garnered more votes than any Presidential candidate in the history of our nation, even in the midst of the self-produced Obama mania. Of that 18 million - 40% were men...men who resist crossing over to Obama.

One would think someone in the Obama campaign might have gotten a clue from his disastrous backfired European tour.  One would have thought someone in that camp might have had a light bulb moment as the polls tanked lower and lower week by week.  One would have thought Barack... someone... anyone in "Obamaland" might have been willing to admit to one another, behind closed doors, the obvious truth:  The key for entry to the White House was held in the hand of Hillary Rodham Clinton. 

Yet the judgment of Obama yielded:  I don't need Hillary and her supporters need to "get over it". 

Not only was it Obama's decision to reject Hillary; his refusal to even vet Senator Clinton poured salt into deep, primary wounds - another few million votes he arrogantly tossed aside.  More portentously, it was Obama's rejection of Hillary which cued McCain to invite a new star player to join them on the national stage...enter...PALIN. (Stage Right)

In one evening, less than one hour, one speech, before the RNC nomination was even official, The Emperor was exposed as buck naked and all his DNC and Media groupies were moved from power players to laughingstock fodder. 

Hillary Clinton warned them.  She warned her Party in every way conceivable for almost a year and up to the very end.  However, even as Americans were still voting for her by huge, embarrassing margins, the DNC Elite refused to listen.  And those Super Delegates, "The Wise Party Protectors" who were specifically put in place to prevent this type of fiasco; turns out, they didn't even care, they were too busy depositing Obama campaign money for their own campaigns

How funny it is to watch our propagandist media and Obama cultists question the judgment of John McCain in choosing Palin; all the while ignoring the bigger story; the failed judgment of Obama who could have already been measuring the real White House windows for drapes had he, like JFK, been able to set aside his ego for the good of his party.  But in the modified words of Lloyd Benson, "he's no JFK" and by placing his contrived image above reality (i.e., believing his own hype) Obama selfishly, probably even fatally, slit the throat of the Democratic Party's run for the Presidency, but make no mistake, it was the DNC Elite who sharpened the knife and it was Jesse Jackson, Jr. and David Axelrod who placed it in his hand. 

And over in Hillary's hand...the magic key that so easily would have opened the White House door still sits... abandoned... such was the judgment of Barack Obama.
