Jesse Jackson, echoing the disappointment and betrayal that a growing number are feeling towards presumptive Democratic Presidential nominee Barack Obama, says "I wanna cut his nuts off."
Too late Jesse. Barack’s balls are long gone. He gave them up when he decided pandering for votes was more important than standing on principle.
Barack Obama pulled off the con on the century when he convinced Democratic primary voters that he was something different, a non-politician who stood for real change. True, he had the advantage of running against Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and her multiple closets of political skeletons but he still conned America big time.
His electrifying speeches mesmerized large crowds and the media, which is proving far to easy to con these days. Just look at how easy they bought into George W. Bush’s con job on the Iraq war five years ago.
But Hillary has more balls than Obama. Hell, Hillary has more balls than most men in Congress and probably the rest of the country. But she also had one of the most mismanaged campaigns in Presidential primary history. As a result, the nation must depend on a political eunuch in $3,000 suits to save America from John McCain’s plan to give us another four years of Bushian policies.
Now I know how the Seventh Calvary felt at Little Big Horn.
Let’s face it folks. The Democrats fell for Obama’s con game hook, line and sinker. They placed their bets on an unknown and as more and more of his true self appears they are headed for the nearest bar to tie one on.
Those who questioned Obama mania warned all of us that the Democratic Party, and perhaps the nation, was buying a pig in a poke. An unruly, undisciplined wild boar is more like it.
While we can hope that John McCain’s growing senility will tip the balance in November, Obama’s performance of late makes me wonder if putting he and his party in office will make any real difference.
With each new election season, I’m becoming more and more convinced that we can no longer depend on our current governmental structure to bring any meaningful change to America.
This nation’s political system is corrupt and beyond redemption. Change may not be possible.
It may take a new American revolution but even that may be too little too late.
