Words escape me: (h/t Hot Air)
Given all that buildup, it may come as a surprise that the Democrats who will gather around the gavel in Denver are actually more united than perhaps at any other point in the past 30 years. When Obama accepts the Democratic nomination on Thursday night, he will inherit a party focused on its determination to take back the White House, and that overarching goal should paper over any lingering resentments or policy differences, at least until after Election Day.
Is this from KOS? DU?
Nope, its from Time magazine who we all know will write many articles describing how divided the Republican party is come convention time.
Of course this is the same magazine that has had Obama on its cover seven times so I doubt many were holding their breath for some objectivity and unbiased reporting but….more united then in the past 30 years?
Btw, it seems many in the party are a bit worried that the race is so close. I mean how can that be…he’s the messiah after all:
As the Democrats kicked off a convention designed to unite support behind Obama, interviews with several dozen delegates pointed to an undercurrent of anxiety among many from key swing states who will be charged with leading the push in their communities. They expressed doubts bordering on bewilderment: Why, in a year that had been shaping up as a watershed for Democrats, amid an economic downturn and an unpopular Republican presidency, is the race so tight?
Could it be because of people like this?
Sarah Hamilton, a Clinton supporter who works for the Ohio Federation of Teachers, linked Obama’s challenges in the state to the resistance that other Democratic presidential candidates have faced in trying to trump social issues with economic ones. “I really think it still has to do with ‘Gods, guns and gays.’ You bring in his race, and the Muslim rumor, all these things are factors that are easy to play out in the rural areas,” she said.
Yeah, it has to be about those damn hillbillies and their religion. Can’t be because of Rezko, Wright, Farrakhan, Ayers, Pfleger, and lets not forget the uh, uh, uh teleprompter addiction Obama has. Could it be his Socialist policies? His infanticide support? His lack of judgment? His inexperience? Statements like “above my pay grade,” and knocking those who happen to believe in god and enjoy their guns.
Can’t be any of those reasons can it? No, it just has to be about all those folks living in rural areas who we all know are racists.
