Jimmy Carter - "Don’t pick Hillary!"
Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, June 04, 2008

This guy is the gift that keeps on giving:
"I think it would be the worst mistake that could be made," said Carter. "That would just accumulate the negative aspects of both candidates."
Well, we all know what the "negative aspects" of Hillary are, Jimmy, but what about Obama?
"If you take that 50% who just don't want to vote for Clinton and add it to whatever element there might be who don't think Obama is white enough or old enough or experienced enough or because he's got a middle name that sounds Arab, you could have the worst of both worlds."
As Ben Smith notes, this will make it easier at some point in the future for Obama to throw Jimmy under the bus (and it sure is getting crowded under that particular bus, isn't it?).

and it sure is getting crowded under that particular bus, isn’t it?
I just assumed it was a really big bus...

I think we need a new phrase. Seriously, right now there’s a whole church under that bus! I’ve just never seen a bus that big.

The Dem’s have convereted the long know ’big tent’ to the ’big bus’ so they have room to throw lots of things under it.

As I said the other day;
We figured that John McCain’s chances were being determined by how many people got on his bus... the supposed ’straight talk express". Turns out the bigger influence will be Obama’s bus... and how many people and orgs are UNDER it.

Frankly, even if I were the biggest McCain supporter ever, Carter’s cry that it shouldn’t be Sen Clinton would make me vote for her in a heartbeat...

Much like my father would only have supported "normalized relations with Vietnam" if MacNamara had said it was a bad idea, I have a hard time not automatically taking the opposite position as Jimmy "Often Wrong" Carter...

So with Jimmah’s comments, is that the official opening to the "vote Obama or you’re racist" narrative for the general election?

Geez, it’t sad that a former President of the US can’t fathom that the significant majority of those who won’t vote for Obama do so because they don’t like his policies.

The racist vote is most likely statistically irrelevant in the election.

When do the rest of us peons get thrown under the Democrat’s Bus?
Once he’s elected, Obama will be tossing everyone with money, or white skin - under the bus...

Well, we all know what the "negative aspects" of Hillary are, Jimmy, but what about Obama?
Obama is a radical America-hating muslim who is coming to eat your grandchildren, McQ. We all know that. So, if he gets elected, what country are you going to move to? Singapore seems just right for you.

As for Hillary, Obama will never pick her. Bill has engaged in so many shady financial deals with so many shady characters, she would sink his campaign. It’s why Obama got the nomination. Supers understand this. Obama may have his problems, but Hillary could never get elected in a million years with the albatross of Bill around her neck.

Now, I have noticed you have not paid much attention to Bill’s financial dealings. Much easier to go after Obama on simple issues of race and religion than to tackle complex international deals that Clinton has brokered or advocated for. Plus, your loyal posters here would never understand them and/or would approve of them. After all, many of them were made with authortarian governmemnts that the regular posters here seem to love - as long as they don’t say anything bad about America.

Here’s a good example:
Once he’s elected, Obama will be tossing everyone with money, or white skin - under the bus...
As Mr. Jacobs claims, Obama hates white people and will throw them under the bus. I have no doubt he believes this.

The fear of someone black being elected to the presidency is pervasive on wingnut sites such as this one. It’s archaic, ignorant, uninformed, and of course borderline racist. But understandable. After all, as you yourself say, there are many things we do not know about Obama. And isn’t the unknown the greatest fear of all?

I feel sad for you McQ; you seem to live in a world dominated by the unknown of those different from you, and therefore the fear of them. Such emotions lead to simplistic thinking and ignorant speculation. As is evidenced here.

What is it about Obama that you don’t know, McQ? You seem to have expressed hundred of opinions about him. And yet you claim you don’t know anything about him. Funny, that.

You retard... Are you so incapable of seeing anything BESIDES skincolor that you can’t tell that it isn’t his skin color that terrifies us.

It’s his absolute lack of good sense, judgement, scincerity or experiance...

Got to be better than the fever swamp that is your brain. It is amazing to me the cognitive dissonance of left wingers who constantly rail against the "hate" xenophobia, and simplistic thinking on the right. I never hear anything but hate and simplistic thinking from you.

Why would Hillary want to be vicePresident? A failed run for vice would harm her chances in 2012. A successful run would block her out till 2016, when she would be very old news.

I could see her asking for an important position, though.

Hillary would be a natural plugin for Souter on the Supremes. With the nice side effect (for the left), that it might make Scalia’s head explode.

Secretary of State would give her administrative and foreign policy credentials, and allow her to leave ’gracefully’ in time to oppose a failing Obamessiah presidency in 2012.

wait wait wait...are you accusing McQ of shilling for Bill Clinton?

REALLY?
then

a short coffee explosion later (and coughing while I choke on my coffee trying to breath and stop laughing at the same time), I am amazed at MK’s ability to change his cognitive state faster than a 2 dollar hooker changes clothes.

Is there really anything going on inside that empty head of his/her/it or does his/her/it wear talking points masked as thought processes.

"and of course borderline racist."

Actually, it would be racist, period. No borderline about it.

"you seem to live in a world dominated by the unknown of those different from you, and therefore the fear of them."

McQ quivering in fear of those different from him. Wide, terror filled eyes darting about, constantly on the alert for the threat of the different. Fingernails bitten to the quick, mumbling and muttering to himself as he scurries through the airport searching for an electrical outlet not surrounded by ’others’. Sweating profusely as he passes through airport security, only the fact that ’they’ wear latex gloves preventing him from a complete breakdown. Cowering, finally, in his first class seats (obviously the chance that an ’unknown’ may sit next to him must be avoided), praying that the flight attendant will be one of ’us’, so that he need not fear someone tampering with his food and adult beverage.

Nah. I don’t see it.

mkultra, on the other hand.......

OK - I’ll bite. Tell us all MK - show us a list of Obama’s accomplishments. And I don’t mean his job titles. Yeah, we all know he is a Senator and was once an Illinois State Legislator and a Law professor. Those are all resume titles. He has over 20+ years working and should have a long list to show for it so do us all a favor and Show us his accomplihments.

They say confession is good for the soul, McQ. Ok. I confess I voted for Jimmah. Twice. It was partly because my little law firm had offices in Atlanta and DC, and we had a few good friends who were pretty high up in the GA mafia. But I was a Karter Kool Aid drinker.

Now I know how wrong I was.

But on this one, I think Jimmah is right — the stopped clock syndrome is probably at work here.

If I were Obama, I would be heeding Churchill’s story about a young man whose mother in law had just died, and was asked for instructions from the undertaker about the remains. He sent this wire:
Embalm, cremate and bury at sea. Take no chances.

There will definitely change. Either we will be led to Marxism and 2nd world status or toward Communism and 3rd world status.

Our heyday is done. Prepare for $20 per gallon gas. Don’t worry, the dictators who Barack Hussein Obama gives your tax dollars to will make good use of them. They will enslave their people or buy yachts. If they have any left over they may fund a anarchist group.

It’s a good thing that wingnuts like you, McQ, are thinking about these issues.

But then again, you are part of the 25% of the population that supports Bush.

What is your problem?

You dead enders are part of the problem, not the solution.

STFU!

Sure is nice to see such civil and reasoned debate. Thank you, mk, for stopping by...

25%, eh?

What’s that Dem-controlled congress at these days?
