We’re All Just “Dumb” Socialists Now
Self-proclaimed "conservative" Andrew "Who is Trig Palin's Real Mom?" Sullivan has written a piece for Mad Magaz-- huh? Oh, yeah, for the yet unpublished issue of Newsweek ... right. I believe it is meant to move a bit away from calling Obama's opposition and vocal critics "racists" to just simply being "dumb". Yeah, that'll work. Here is the planned cover, and an excerpt from the article (with more @ Politico):
“[I]t remains simply a fact that Obama has delivered in a way that the unhinged right and purist left have yet to understand or absorb. Their short-term outbursts have missed Obama’s long game … [T]he president begins by extending a hand to his opponents; when they respond by raising a fist, he demonstrates that they are the source of the problem; then, finally, he moves to his preferred position of moderate liberalism and fights for it without being effectively tarred as an ideologue or a divider. This kind of strategy takes time. And it means there are long stretches when Obama seems incapable of defending himself, or willing to let others to define him, or simply weak. I remember those stretches during the campaign against Hillary Clinton. I also remember whose strategy won out in the end.”
Yeah, that 2008 Obama playbook was such a success then that it can be used again in 2012 to win over all the dumbies ... even though pretty much of the "dumb" opposition/critics (some of which voted for him in 2008 but swear they will not again in 2012) have seen the playbook and don't like how the game ends. If anything the voting public is a heck of a lot wiser in 2012. Now, if only the stinkin' GOP could get their game in order...
