Pro- Hillary blog's are reporting: *BREAKING* Barry Soetoro’s Birth Certificate in Republican Hands [UPDATE]. Just for knowing, it's total bullshit.
This "Republican Operative" meme is being spread by Hillary's camp. Operative? Ha! Republicans can barely find their ass with both hands. They are so politically correct they are afraid of their own shadow. They have not touched any of the O-bombshells.
This has Clintonostra written all over it. But she wants/needs clean hands should she manage to wrest the nomination away from the Obama. I am not sure Hillary wants 2012. We do know she is a Force of Nature, let's see if she is content to just wound Barack, or wants the nomination. All her actions are beginning to suggest the latter.
The African American constituency of the Democrat party is not gonna be happy if the nomination is "stolen" from Obama. Hillary wants to deflect blame and direct the nasty anger towards the Republicans. Clearly she does not want to be the object of their angst and hostility. She needs their vote, badly.
It ain't the Republicans behind this story. Believe me, Hillary's people are behind the "Soetero" birth certificate story as they have been behind a good deal more. Surely this was no accident.
"He [Obama] is just words and she is a lifetime of action.... She is the one who is ready to fill the big shoes of this job and he is an inspiring speaker who isn't, and whose background you are beginning to wonder about. She has brought real results and even his words today are in doubt, invented for a campaign. Ultimately he cannot win against John McCain."
Clinton's campaign, he argued, "must now in earnest show that their image of Obama Camelot is simply nothing but campaign pitter-patter."
Who could buy media like this?
During the battle for the Democratic presidential nomination, Hillary Rodham Clinton's top strategist urged her to portray her rival Barack Obama as someone with questionable roots in American values. She rejected the advice.
The Penn memo was leaked, deliberately. And ys the Clintonostra is that machiavellian.
I will not publish against Barack Hussein until we see IF he gets the nomination. BHO is McCain's dream opponent, HRC his nightmare. McCain's 96-year-old mother could beat BHO. The Republicans cannot even run a campaign. HRC is competent, which makes her so dangerous, should she get elected. And she is a lot more ruthless than competent.
Rush revealed today that HRC's people were out there long before the Rev. Wright thing got traction, trying to get Republicans to push it forward, so they could keep their hands clean. GET IT? The same movie is repeating.
Hillary can at least hide her hatred for America, BHO can not. If she wins the nomination, she could well win in November. Despite the media's fawning, Barack's nomination is not a done deal.She "suspended" her campaign, she didn't concede, remember?
The Democrat presidential nominating convention is August 25-28. The number of delegate votes needed to win the nomination is 2118. According to the tabulations of Real Clear Politics, Egobama has 1766.5 elected or "pledged" delegates, while the PIAPS has 1639.5 (half-delegates because the Florida and Michigan delegations' votes were cut in half).
These are delegates the candidates won in the primaries and for whom they are legally bound to vote in the first ballot. Should no candidate win a majority of votes on the first ballot, these pledged delegates can vote for whomever they want.
What gives Egobama a winning majority of convention delegates is 463 "Superdelegates" who have promised to vote for him (as opposed to 257 for Clinton). These folks are Democrat Congressmen, Senators, "Distinguished Party Leaders," and other convention invitees.
Unlike pledged delegates, superdelegates can switch their promise to vote at any time, right up to the convention's first ballot. Which means if 112 of Egobama's 463 decide to vote for Clinton instead, she wins.
There's more. Note an interesting discrepancy in the RCP superdelegate tally. A total of 823 will be voting at the convention, yet 463 (O's) and 257 (C's) add up to only 720.
Which means 103 superdelegates have yet to commit to either candidate. All of them must be getting phone calls from both candidates on the hour. But you can bet the Clintonistas are going after them hard-ball, enticing them with every carrot and threatening with every stick found in FBI files. Every one of the 103 they get after 51.5 (some have half-votes) is one less of the 112 they have to peel off from O's 463 to win.
We all know how Egobama is tanking in the polls. It's the timing that's so beautiful - just before the Olympics, when everyone stops paying any attention to politics to watch sports instead. This, plus Egobama going off to vacation in Hawaii, locks in the poll momentum of McCain going up and O going down.
Then the day after the Olympics end on August 24, the Dem convention begins in Denver. It is going to be chaos, outside with protestors of every moonbat stripe, inside with delegates at each other's throats, and everything egged on by fanatically angry pro-Clinton women calling themselves Pumas (PUMA stands for Party Unity My Ass).
No way this convention won't end ugly. O will come out of it seriously if not mortally weakened if he gets it, with millions of Puma-type women voting for McCain. If H "steals" it, millions of blacks will want to burn Denver to the ground and certainly won't vote for her.
Do NOT support anything prior to Denver which would further weaken BHO in the event that HRC has plans.
