Barack Obama will be holding a meeting at Cobo hall in Detroit tomorrow (may 7th). The schedule time for the meeting is 11am…yikes. How do supporters like yours truly miss such an opportunity? I signed up and will have to figure a way out of work to be at that meeting.
As far as I am concerned, Obama will be the next president, whether the haters like it or not. Here’s why:
The GOP is just toast: ain’t going to happen, folks. Mormon-Romney and cross-dressing- twice divorced-Giuliani will never make it past the right wing nutties, who are used to GOP candidates pandering to them to get votes. And what about McCain? Stick a fork in him, he’s done. The Christian fundies don’t trust him and that stroll through a Baghdad market to prove that Iraq is safe while been guarded by a platoon and attack helicopters broke away the few independents who were giving him a chance.
What about Fred Thompson, the right-wing knight in shining armor? I think his strategy of wait-and-see isn’t going to work. He should’ve been in that debate the other night, and he wasn’t. Don’t even get me started on that hypocrite called Newt Gingrich.
The single most unfortunate thing for the Republicans: the Iraq war. It will be the gift that keeps on giving, and it’s not going to get any better. The GOP is tied to that war whether they like it or not, and I predict 2008 will suck for them.
How about the Democrats… John Edwards won’t get much traction, I predict. Getting a 400 dollar haircut while decrying against two Americas (rich and poor) kind of sums up how a bunch of people feel about him. Good guy overall.
But what about Hillary? The 600 pound gorilla. No one knows, of course, but I just think her negatives aren’t going to go away — and I actually admire her and think she’s pretty bright. I also think people are desperate for a new face, a new direction in this country. It’s been a dreadful six years, hasn’t it?
Hence, Obama. Not just because he’s bright and motivated and thoughtful, but by process of elimination, he’s the only one left standing. That’s how I figure it, anyway. I may be wrong but I ‘m sticking by my candidate until the very end.
