1. Karl Rove interviewed in the NYTimes. (I want the parts left out)
You’ve been booed off stages recently.
No, I haven’t. I’ve been booed on stages. I’m a little bit tougher than to walk off a stage because someone says something ugly.
Enjoy! (ht – JG)
2. Forget about politics and beliefs etc, it’s all about personality now. Because Obama won.
And don’t forget Reagan and Clinton. Um – what about George W.? Hmmm – while it fits my narrative, I suspect it doesn’t fit yours honey.
History shows that while ideas matter, personality trumps all. In the mass-communication era, voters flock to leaders who groove with the nation’s zeitgeist. Think of recent two-termers Ronald Reagan (who heralded “Morning in America”) and Bill Clinton (who felt our pain).
Now there is Obama, he of hope and change and perhaps even more important, postpartisan civility.
Seriously, how can you have a column stating absolutely that it’s all about personality without once mentioning 8 years of George Bush. Love him or hate him, 8 years!!!! Tell us how he fits your statement of facts here.
Asked how Bush could help the incoming administration, Jackson replied, “A: Stop these damaging executive orders that satisfy ideology but not people,” and commit to helping the auto industry.
Kind of like Clinton. Remember him? He issued so many executive orders that when Bush came to office he had to freeze them just so he could read them all!
or how about Jesse saying this:
“All of that talk of bipartisanship begins now,” Jackson said. “And the new president deserves his vision to be implemented immediately.”
After accusing Bush of hijacking the election of 2000.
One can only laugh.
