Giving Up on the Democrats

April 12, 2008 at 9:05 am (Politics, Rants) (, , , )

I’m not sure what to think anymore when I see polls showing Obama still has leads over Hillary Clinton. Even after all the controversy. What will it take for Americans to stop falling head over heels for this man? An exposé of his past which suggests he’s a lying, unpatriotic, radical racist? Oops. Happened already.

Which brings me to think, fuck the Democrats. They seem to have a knack for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. With an economy on the verge of a recession, a largely unpopular war and the general dislike of Bush and his neo-con entourage, the Dems had this election in the bag. Just like they did last time when Bush was up for a second term. However, just like in 2004, they’re about to nominate a jackass to go up against the Republicans.

We knew Kerry was an idiot long before he was nominated. He changes his mind on issues according to numbers in the polls, to the point of him sounding like a badly configured robot. We all know his famous line “I voted for the war, before I voted against it”. He’s boring. The whole swift-boat veterans for truth thing raised a lot of questions about his self-proclaimed war hero credentials. Yet they bitchslapped Howard Dean by nominating Kerry, with all those weaknesses just screaming to be exploited by the Republicans for the Presidential race.

Here we are faced with a similar situation. It isn’t going to be pretty when John McCain et al start attacking Obama about the Rev. Wright incident, given he’s chosen as the nominee. Its a weakness they are happy for, that they can prepare for from now till October, they probably even did the ads already. So then why risk nominating him? Why drive a car with a flat tire? I really don’t know or care anymore. I’ll support Obama to be nominated and embarassed by a landslide defeat, because maybe only then will he and his supporters wake up to the reality that he isn’t fit to be President, and that feeling is likely to be more satisfying than to see him lose now.
