Surrogates Gone Wild * Grover Norquist


Grover Norquist went to the Geraldine Ferraro school of politics. I must admit that I never heard of Grover Norquist before today. He doesn't hang out in many of the same places as people of African descent. It turns out that Grover Norquist is a conservative activist who specializes in promoting an anti-tax agenda.

Anyhow, Norquist dropped by The Times' Washington bureau to give his negative critique of Obama's liberal stances on economic issues and other matters, he termed the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee "John Kerry with a tan."

It appears that John McCain and his surrogates are still struggling with the concept that they are getting beat-down by a person of African descent in this election cycle. Apparently it would make them feel better to think of Barack Obama as a white guy with a tan ... or as Karl Rove recently claimed, as a country club elitist leaning against the wall talking about folks.

Is this all that John McCain and his surrogates can bring to the table? Can John McCain keep the November election from becoming a blowout in favor of Obama? What say u?

Hey Villager!

McCain knew his goose was COOKED when Hillary was sent packing!! He was hoping that he could carry the race if he went against Hillary because he knows there is a core group that will die before they elect her...but with Obama...he can't win the young voter segment that Obama has sealed...he can't win the Latinos, who came out for Hillary but will now settle for Barry...he can't win the black vote....

McCain is just trying to ride it out but he knows he can't get in the White House with just white men, white supremacists, and white nursing home patients voting for him.

Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!

Did he just say Obama was 'John Kerry with a tan'?
These people have issues.
Interesting to see how true character jumps out when they're feeling pressured...

Shine on Villager

So who's interjecting race into the equation now! Funny Obama's rivals complain about him using race as a platform, but it seems as though they can't get away from it and they are, in fact, the ones doing the race baiting.

PZ and Janet - Obama's opponents are becoming less and less subtle in thier efforts to get race into this election...
