Obama Finally Growing a Set
Maybe it's just uncontrollable anger, but the sharper, aggressive tone he presented in his South Carolina victory speech seems like, HELLO, THE RIGHT PLAN ALREADY. Before 18,000 hopeful supporters in Denver today, Barack delivered a Hope Attack at The Clintons with ghost language like, "I will end the mentality that says the only way for Democrats to look tough on national security is by talking, acting and voting like George Bush Republicans." The Clinton campaign did respond, AND IT WAS KIND OF LIKE THIS WITH THE BIG LETTERS AND THE BOLD.
Seems like a good bet that this official Clinton spokesperson is Bill Clinton, a very angry man:
In bold, capital letters, a Clinton spokesman emailed reporters: "SEN. OBAMA LAMENTS THIS KIND OF POLITICS IN HIS BOOK, AUDACITY OF HOPE: 'FOR THAT IS HOW MOST OF MY COLLEAGUES, REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRAT, ENTER THE SENATE...THEIR WORDS DISTORTED, AND THEIR MOTIVES QUESTIONED.' [PAGE 133]
Nice work, Barry -- now you've got your big chance. Jerk those old Clinton people around and they cannot, will not be able to hold their shit.
You'll beat the Clintons with this tone, Barry. Try working with something like this: The Clintons are nothing. They mean nothing, they think nothing, they are old angry careerists that hate each other. Yeah, I didn't shake that old hag's hand at the State of the Union, why would I even consider doing that? She's just some useless old tramp who won't shut up about the damn 1990s. Fuck that. I'm Barack Obama -- have you seen me speak? Shit, I'm running unopposed. They'd just call it now if they could, but they have to let this crazy wife get in her speak for some reason. I don't care. Why would I care about this nothing "running" against me? Don't call it a movement.
We'll be checking in on your progress. Because, you know, we're a political blog.
