Obama Jumps Cause Right-Wing Massa Says Boo! Again!

Barack Obama crumbled and accepted the resignation of Jim Johnson, the head of his VP search committee. I am extremely disturbed that Obama is developing this habit of not sticking with his people because Right Wing Conservatives raise objections in the media. Reverend Wright was one thing, but this is a completely different thing. The job with Obama was unpaid for god sakes! No one Obama picks in the future to do anything for him will go without a background check and it will be highly unlikely that those individuals will be completely squeaky clean if they have EVER had any long-term connection to politics or big business.

Do the Republicans do this? When has Bush dropped anyone without the ENTIRE world screaming for the person to go and sometimes not even then. Brownie or Fredo ring a bell? Who's looking at McCain's advisor, Carly Fiorina? McCain didn't have to disavow Reverend Hagee or his connections to racist and sexist remarks by supporters. McCain had tons of lobbyists working on his campaign, he did not jump and start dumping people until after he secured the GOP nomination.

Obama needs to exhibit some fight when challenged. This campaign is going to be nasty. Pick your folks and stand by them! Fight for them. Don't let folks snap on your wife! This Mr. Nice Guy crap is only going to last so long. If Obama can't be tough, then he needs to find and I mean quick, a pitbull defender for his campaign! This catering to the media and the right wing is going to result in pissing off his established supporters. If you try to please everyone, you end up pleasing no one!

One man's Kowtowing is another man's Walk matching his talk.

I was rather annoyed by Johnson's selection in the first place. I grant you that yes, he has done it before...but trained chimpanzees could have matched Edwards with Kerry...and this IS the dude who selected Geraldine Ferraro for Walter Mondale....so I dont view this as a major loss.


Dude had his hand in some questionable pots...so he had to go.

There is something to be said for principle, even when your opponent clearly has none.

But Inkonegro,

Obama should have known more about his background BEFORE he picked him. It's not principle to dump him when he becomes an embarrassment, that's preservation!

Either way Obama looks bad, either uninformed or wishy-washy.

Hello there!!

I wrote a post after Obama's win and the title was:

Obama's Victory Formula = nefarious commitment to blacks + kowtow + compromises + optimistic message + white voter approval

Enough said.

Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!
