Obama Supporters VS Obama Supporters

When I digest my daily dose of hatemail, I often find myself wondering, “Do Obama supporters talk to each other, ever?”  Whenever I criticize Obama (or his supporters), half of his supporters will defend him with one position, and the other half defend him with an entirely opposite position.  They are often such polar opposites that I suspect they have more in common with me than with each other.  I’ll give some examples:

Whenever I point out Obama’s socialism,

Half of Obama supporters accuse me of dishonestly smearing Obama with socialism.

Half accuse me of smearing socialism, and defend socialism, Obama’s brand in particular.

Whenever I note the incredible propensity to scream “RACISM!” by his supporters,

Half of his supporters will accuse me of being racist.

Half will accuse me of imagining being accused racist.

In fact, you can view this exact sort of exchange in the comments of this blog.  Here is an example:

https://fredshelm.wordpress.com/2008/06/07/how-to-talk-to-obama-supporters/#comment-96

Whenever I reiterate Obama’s intellectual failings,

Half of Obama supporters will acknowledge they are bad, but “not as bad as Bush”.

Half deny any errors on the part of Obama and accuse me of being too dumb to see his master plan.  Apparently he was “hinting” at something with his statement that there are 57 states.

Whenever I talk about Obama’s resume (or lack thereof),

Half of his supporters acknowledge that resumes are very important.  They then deny that Obama has a short one, often going so far to argue that Obama is actually MORE qualified than the other candidates.

Half will acknowledge that that his resume is as short as can be, but deny that it is important.  To them, Obama is essentially GOD so it doesn’t matter, and when he becomes the new president we can put his resume on the new penny where Lincoln’s eye used to be.

You will find contradictions such as these on any of Obama’s positions.  You come to expect it eventually.  It’s really not surprising though, considering the candidate they support.  He calls for change, yet offers up an old, outdated form of socialism which has already been shown to be ineffective as something “new”.  He rails against “guilt by association” but attempts to link McCain to Bush in almost every speech.  He vehemently attacks division and disunity, then, anyone who happens to have different ideas, often in the same sentence.  The man is almost nothing but contradictions.

Perhaps the strategy for ’08 should be to get them to talk to eachother.  Get them to discuss Obama’s policy so they can realize how different their views of it are.  That would be the antidote to “hope and change”.  When a candidate speaks in completely empty platitudes, the populace which falls into the trap is apt to “fill in the blanks” themselves with whatever positions they admire.  The solution to this is to get them thinking about those positions, and to question wether or not their candidate really does espouse them.  Thinking coupled with information is always the best cure for Obamitis.

We must get them to talk to eachother.

    Nice points … and another benefit of them talking to each other would be that they wouldn’t be yapping at the rest of us.

    “The man is almost nothing but contradictions.”

    This is perhaps too generous. He often lacks the well defined positions necessary to create a contradiction. Krauthammer was right when he called Obama a platitude salesman. Personally, I am beginning to think that his whole campaign is nothing but the world’s biggest book promotion tour. Seriously, the man has earned over 4 million bucks in royalties on his two autobiographies.

    Also, anyone who believes that Obama is humble and down to earth might want to stop and wonder the last time a relatively unimportant state senator from Illinois (or anywhere else for that matter) wrote two autobiographies before the age of 45. Gosh, even Kennedy only had one and it was about a relatively interesting period in his life, instead of Obama’s long and meandering rhetorical ramble about whether he should ingratiate himself to the black community or the white community.

    Well, at least somehow I managed to be one of the few people under 30 who doesn’t buy into his cliche campaign.

    Fred – you zany kid! Which issue would you have them talk about? Hope, change or what a great speech Obama gives?

    He is all things to all people. Sort of like his Nafta position. The Obamanation only sees what they want to see. That’s the beauty of having a resume thinner than “himself”. He’s got nothing to explain because he never did anything.

    As Americans, we have watched our Washington representatives take advantage of our state taxes.
    They decide how to spend your money……they decide WHO gets in office….NOT THE PEOPLE.

    It is time we take back our country…..state by state.

    How much money would we save if we remove the paychecks and benefits of state representatives.

    LET EACH STATE AND IT’S PEOPLES DECIDE BY VOTING BI-MONTHLY ON STATE ISSUES.

    Fire the representatives……this form of government was given to us because George Washington and
    others had horses, telegraph, and word of mouth to inform the people.

    We now have COMPUTERS!!!!

    GET RID OF THE REPRESENTATIVES!!!!
