Closing the deal

With seven days left until Election Day, the Obama campaign and the mainstream media would like us all to think that the presidential race is over. To them it is a forgone conclusion that in January Messiah Obama will be crowned the supreme leader of the world and we should all be prepared to bow down on bended knees and hail The One. I cannot blame Obama, nor the MSM (the largest and most extensive public relations organization to ever run a presidential campaign) for trying to convince us all of this; they hope that the perception of an undefeatable Obama will cause his detractors to stay home on November 4th and accept the inevitable ascension of their Savior.
But with only one week left it has become obvious that this tactic is not so much a display of arrogant confidence by Obama and his supporters, but more a sign of their fear and desperation. Sure, all the polls have him ahead, but with only one week left, the lead is not large enough to guarantee him a victory. After out raising and out spending his opponent by a margin of over 2-to-1, and having the vast majority of the media on his side disseminating his campaign’s talking points while maintaining hidden the copious amount of skeletons in his closet, Obama cannot seem to close the deal. The Obama campaign’s panic is evident in their outlandish and thuggish treatment of any media outlet that does not cooperate: they have in essence become the “Interview Nazis,” refusing service to anyone that disagrees with them.
With all the advantages Obama has, why then has he not been able to pull away? It seems that there is something about Obama that is preventing the American public from fully embracing him. Of course, his mouthpieces and the complicit media attribute this disconnect to his race, but that is simply not the case. If it were, the Obama campaign would not be playing the race card as often as they have. If America truly had an issue electing a black president, the last thing you would want to do, from a public relations standpoint, is remind everyone that they have an issue electing a black president. The disconnect between Obama and America is not a superficial racial one, but instead one that goes to the core of America’s identity.
For all our problems America is still, by far, the greatest nation in the world. And although Obama’s success so far is a perfect example of this nation’s greatness, he has built his campaign, and his entire adult career, on the premise that America is really not that great. No matter how many times he extols the virtues of the American dream, he does it in the context of fixing what is wrong with America. This negative perception, regardless of the flowery words and rhetoric he dresses them up in, is what is preventing Obama from fully connecting to the American people and closing this deal. With one week left before America decides its next leader, it is too late for Obama to address this chasm between his perception of America and the perception held by the vast majority of Americans. And ideologically speaking, it would be impossible for him to view America as anything more than a broken nation in need of repair.
Obama can try to hide his disdain for this country behind his inspirational speeches and catchy slogans, but in the end, the gist of his perception of this country will not be lost upon the American people. And it is this fundamental difference, I believe, that will prevent Obama from closing the deal come November 4th.

  1. From your mouth to G-d’s ears.
    But you’d never know any of this from all of my friends. I can only hope that the real America outnumbers those that drank the Kool Aid.

  2. Alberto, I agree with you, and believe that McCain is going to win. This won’t be the first time that the pollsters are wrong. But, if it goes the other way, then we have to watch and report on every move that commie sob makes.
