Rush Failed. The Hildebeeste Is Out

From "the Other McCain," quoting Lawrence O'Donnell of HuffPo:"

A senior campaign official and Clinton confidante has told me that there will be a Democratic nominee by June 15. He could not bring himself to say the words "Hillary will drop out by June 15," but that is clearly what he meant. I kept saying, "So, Hillary will drop out by June 15," and he kept saying, "We will have a nominee by June 15." . . . The Clinton campaign has not lost its grip on reality.

Oh, well. One dragon vanquished, one to go.

Rush didn't fail. He succeeded exactly as planned.

Operation Chaos' objective was to elongate the nomination period in order to let the nation see the true colors of both the candidates (especially Obama). Furthermore, Billary can beat John, Obama can't (at least that's what the polls say).

We WANT Obama in the general but voting for Hillary in the primaries gave the Pubbies more time to build an artillery. Perfect plan formulated by the Professor of Advanced Conservative Studies.

I never listened to Rush, but he does seem (from what I have read) to be an arrogant ass. I really don't appreciate him playing "russian roulette" with our country's future.

He failed insofar as HRC will be outta there by 6/15, rather than at the Convention.

FP: yes, he's arrogant. But you seem to be advocating Vote Suppression.

Not nice, FP.

Fair Play said...

You'll have to explain how me not liking Rush and what he is trying to do with this election is advocating for "vote suppression".

(Your kidding about the "not nice" right?)

Lemmeeeseee, heah.

If you're saying that qualified and eligible voters should NOT vote in primaries, that's "voter suppression."

But maybe that's not what you're trying to convey.

Fair Play said...

No, that is not what I was trying to convey.

My comment was more in response to "Neo-con tastic" comment about Rush's Operation Chaos and McCain being a sure win against Obama.
