If the election of the president of the United States was based on oratorical skills, Barack Obama would win his re-election bid by a landslide.
A dynamic and memorable address by the Commander in Chief at the Democratic National Convention was prefaced by a slew of hard-hitting attacks on Republican Party politics and Republican Party candidates. It’s about time!
Democrats finally respond
The biggest problem Democrats have had in the 2012 election year has constantly been the Democrats failure to respond to the forked tongue attacks by racists, sexists, imperialist and conservative individuals and groups. But at the convention, Democrats begin to fight back by pointing out the clear and obvious differences between helping the rich and wealthy and helping the poor and exploited.
If Obama and the Democratic Party can convince their supporters to go to the polls on Election Day and vote, the coalition of middle-class voters, Black voters, women voters, Hispanic voters and disgruntled voters that hate “trickle down” politics pushed by economic vampires and financial criminals, Obama will be hard to defeat. My advice to the smart Republicans is if you can’t beat Obama, join him!
It is not unusual for political people to adjust their thinking, change their philosophies, switch their allegiances and reconsider their past support of exposed politicians. Some say Mitt Romney is the best political gymnast in history because he has flipped and flopped more times than gold medal winner Gabby Douglas.
Obama’s election to lose
The Republican Party can’t beat Obama, but the president can lose if he can’t put together a nationwide team that can deliver his supporters and Democratic voters to the election booths.
In recent history, Democratic Party field operatives have been a political disgrace.
Democrats lucked out
Instead of hiring political operatives that were experienced, that were smart or operatives that were successful, Democrats chose to employ political charlatans that the Democratic Party could control.
Who can deliver was not a question Democratic Party leaders would even consider when selecting people to pay millions of dollars to get the president re-elected and other Democratic candidates elected.
This year the Democratic Party lucked out. God gave them Republican presidential and vice presidential candidates that couldn’t tell the political truth if their political lives depended on it. Any Republican flip floppers that read this column may want to flip over to the other party before it’s too late.
