Barack Obamaâ€™s Broom
Barack Obamaâ€™s broom has been busy lately. It has been sweeping caucuses and cleaning up primaries. It hasnâ€™t surprised me one bit, as I have been telling you guys for a while now: you are watching history unfold, folks. Okay: so I like to rub the noses of my detractors into the groundings of my political predictions come true. Live with it.
Last week I told you guys that Obama could sweep the seven upcoming races (including Maine-which everyone and his brother thought Billary would win). I said the worst he could do was win five of seven. I also said that Billaryâ€™s best shot for an upset was in Maryland; well take Maryland off the table now. I didnâ€™t even consider The Virgin islands worthy of discussion, since there were only three delegates at stake: but then that was already in the Obama win column. Tonight, I expect Barack Obamaâ€™s broom to sweep through the District of Columbia, Virginia and Maryland. Billary will be cleaning up late tonight folks. Start calling her the â€œclean-up womanâ€; she will be doing a lot of cleaning up after Obama keeps winning. By tonight he would have won about two dozen caucuses and primaries; this is rally impressive folks: it is time to admit that you Clintonistas.
I expect Obama to win Hawaii. He will do well in Rhode Island and Wisconsin. Even if he loses Ohio and Texas (as the Clinton folks are saying) he will get lots of delegates because of the delegate-formula. In Texas the formula for delegates favor Obama in the black congressional districts as compared to the Hispanic districts. The formula is based on previous turnout, and turnout has been higher in black areas of Texas when compared to Hispanic areas.
Looking forward; Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico and North Carolina come into play. Billary and their spin machines are doing overtime trying to put up a good face; but as I told you folks: Waterloo has come and gone. I expect Barack to win North Carolina. Pennsylvania is still up for grabs. The Obama campaign has moved hundreds of workers and volunteers into Texas; they will be revisiting the Alamo folks. The Obama campaign is very active in Pennsylvania also; they will be competitive there too.
Why doesnâ€™t someone stick fork in this clean-up lady: she is done. She is cooked. She is finished. I have been telling you guys this now since last year; and to think very very few people even gave me the time of day when I called all this. I tell you again: politics isnâ€™t Rocket Science for me/lol. I have been involved all my life; I can read tea leaves and crystal balls quite well/lol.
So lets take on the Clintonâ€™s argument about Obamaâ€˜s inability to win big states: that is bullcrap with capital â€œBâ€ and capital â€œCâ€. Look; Obama has been winning big states, small states, east west north and south states, blue states, red states, whites, blacks, Asians, Latins, young voters, old voters, rich people, poor people, educated people and under-educated people, men and women, etcetera and etcetera. It is a rainbow coalition, the likes of which has been seen before (no disrespect to Jesse Jackson here).
So now Billary is trying to steal the delegates from Florida and Michigan; are we really surprised? These are the same people who looted the White House china and silver before they left. These are the same people who pimped out the Lincoln bedroom. These are the same people who gave presidential pardons under questionable circumstances folks; how quickly do we forget. These are the same folks with umpteen scandals behind their partnership; who faced the country on national television and lied more than just a few times; both of them. Itâ€™s high time that the voters of this country wake up and send the Hillbilly Clintons packing (poor Chelsea; God bless her big heart).
Last October Hillary Clinton said that she was leaving her name on the Michigan ballot but it really didnâ€™t matter, since she knew that the delegates wonâ€™t count. Her campaign knew the rules. They agreed with the Democratic Partyâ€™s national committee (DNC): Florida and Michigan were to be punished for moving their primaries up from the dates agreed to with the DNC. Now Billaryâ€™s folks are threatening to go to court to secure the delegates that her window dressing wins now claim. How embarrassing; would someone call the sheriff please, they are trying to do a Jesse James here. Do we really want those Republicans on the Supreme Court deciding the outcome of this race?
What these desperate hillbillies are seeing is a close number count when it is all over; they are hoping that the super delegates will over ride the pledged delegates and give them an undeserved coronation: they are so wrong it isnâ€™t funny. This thing will be sealed before Pennsylvania.
Barack Obama will win more states, more voters, more caucuses, more primaries and more pledged delegates than the Billary Clintons. You canâ€™t just steal history like that; you canâ€™t.
SIDEBAR: It is true that I do have an esoteric group of over two hundred recipients for my column, to whom I send out e-mails before the columns go up on any blog site. This is because of all the ridiculous static in the comment-sections coming from anonymous people generally. My intention is to go off line if this doesnâ€™t end soon. I have no other option at this point in time. Many of my recipients donâ€™t like coming on line to deal with the â€œgarbageâ€. Many of them blame me for participating and thatâ€™s why I am trying to avoid the interaction now. I am not good at turning the â€œother cheekâ€; I relish the contact. Thatâ€™s how I deal with things/lol.
Stay tuned-in folks. I havenâ€™t cooled off yet; I am just writing less thatâ€™s all.
