South Carolina Rout … Obama Takes Hillary Out Back Behind the Woodshed

 

SC_Dems_Winner

No sooner did the polls close in the South Carolina primary and Barack Obama was declared the victor in a rout. This is not just a victory for Barack Obama, its a statement. With about 2% of the precinct reporting, Obama is leading Hillary 51% – 34%.

How will this affect the upcoming Florida primaries and Super Tuesday? One can only imagine the upcoming political tactics that will be used by the Clinton camp after this butt-kicking.

Michelle Malkin discusses the Barack Obama Rout. This contest was over before it even started … Barack wins going away. Michelle mentions its was a “Donkey” rumble …

I would dare say that Hillary had her “DONKEY BUTT” handed to her on a silver platter.

 

UPDATE I: Obama Beats Hillary Clinton in SC in a Landslide

Ouch!!! This one is going to leave a mark. With 98% of precincts reporting, Obama 55% – Hillary 27%. Check out the exit poll numbers and where the votes came from.

UPDATE II: The Bill Clinton Effect … A Negative One

So now both Hillary and Bill Clinton are looked upon as divisive. The once admired and sought after campaigner has become a negative influence as well. Maybe the Democratic Party has wised up and has a case of Clinton fatigue.

Bill Clinton’s aggressive campaigning in South Carolina in the days leading up to the state’s primary may have had a net negative effect among South Carolina’s Democratic primary voters, CNN exit polls indicate.

Roughly 6 in 10 South Carolina Democratic primary voters said Bill Clinton’s campaigning was important in how they ultimately decided to vote, and of those voters, 48 percent went for Barack Obama while only 37 percent went for Hillary Clinton. Fourteen percent of those voters voted for John Edwards.

UPDATE III: How will the Obama Rout Affect Future Primaries?

The South Carolina primary was such a butt kicking that Hillary lost in pretty much every demographic. One really has to wonder how such a landslide victory for Obama will affect the perception and opinions of voters in future primaries. Hillary Clinton could not wait to run from SC to Nashville, TN. No matter what spin comes from the Clinton camp, tonight was not good. Not at all.

“The choice in this election is not about regions or religions or genders,” Obama said at a boisterous victory rally. “It’s not about rich versus poor, young versus old and it’s not about black versus white. It’s about the past versus the future.”

The audience chanted “Race doesn’t matter” as it awaited Obama to make his appearance.

But it did, in a primary that shattered turnout records.

      Good for you Obama …win the Democratic nomination, so that then America can vote against you, because we all know you would be disastrous also. With all the benefits and goodies you and the rest of your liberals plan to give …who is going to work, who is going to do the job, to raise the funds for all your social plans? God, spear us from both of them.

      Ya got that right SL-Gloria. I was shocked to hear that 41% of the American adult public pay NO income tax. Just how long does everyone think the 59% left can bear this heavy load. Elect a Democrat and the incentive to work gets even lower than it already is. The Dems promise entitlement programs out the donkey’s butt. Just who is going to work to pay for all of this? It’s also why the Dems have to bring the troops home in a losing proposition – they need that money so they can redistribute the wealth to all those that don’t or won’t work.

      I just finished watching Obama’s victory speech. For all the talk about Obama as a new Democrat, with a vision for a rejuvenated 21st-century politics, his speech offered a tremendously class-driven, populist appeal, likely to divide the country more than unite it. He called for the immediate end to the war in Iraq – coded antiwar language for an immediate troop withdrawal, precisely when military and political developments are at their best since March 2003.

      His supporters, I must say, seemed to rock the decibel-meter more so than any victory speech I’ve seen this year. Maybe I just have the volume set a bit high. It sure seemed that the energy was just pumping out of the auditorium.

      Obama gained what he needed most going forward: momentum. He’ll see a surge in contributions next week, and a priceless rush of earned media, as his visage’s further splashed acrossed newspapers, magazines, and TV news shows around the country following this Palmetto State breakthrough.

      Hillary Clinton just took a “Donkey Butt” kicking like she has never experienced in her life.

      Both Hillary and Obama would be disastrous for the US. What seems to be happening though is that this knock down drag out Dem primary is fracturing the Democratic party. There will be a vote based on race … not good for a party who has pandered to black for years.

      This could get real ugly.

      Like her or not don’t count Hillary out yet – the Clinton’s are very good at rallying support when they are down.

    6. Scared Monkeys on January 27th, 2008 12:15 am

      Its not really about counting Hillary about Yoyo.

      The damage has already been done. The Democratic carnage has not yet begun. The longer it stays close and a race, the worse it will be. Hillary Clinton’s take no prisoners and to slime everyone in her way will be the undoing of her party. She is not doing this to a white man. She is attacking a black one. A party that for years who has claimed to champion minorities. Now when one is running in Obama, the Clinton machine will look to take him out.

      I really hope for Obama’s sake there are no skeletons in his closet. The Clinton machine will find them.

      Are we safe!!!Let’s keep the war in Iraq….not here!

    9. SL-Gloria on January 27th, 2008 9:55 am

      I don’t want neither Hillary nor Obama in power, but I have to agree with Yo-Yo…the Clintons do have control over the Democratic political machinery to move things around for their benefit.

    10. SL-Gloria on January 27th, 2008 10:12 am

      In addition to the race issue, the sexist thing is going to be an important matter of dispute

      ————————
      Sven,

      Take a break… this is not about hate or Aruba, just personal opinions, likes and dislikes of political contenders.

      Personally, I couldn’t hate Aruba, but I can be disgusted with the unprofessional manner in which the investigation of the NH case was handled.

      Also, if we are going to talk about extreme lack of love for the people of Aruba, we would have the talk about the Aruban government: excessive public expenditures, price fixing, increased taxes, a directed economy that only favors people of power in the tourism industry, undue economic restrictions against the democratic principle of free enterprise, official corruption, among a few others. I am totally sure that the harm brought about to Aruba by its own leaders is greater than the opinions of a few hundred in message boards and forums.

      That’s like asking which one we dislike more, brussel sprouts or turnips.

      They are both equally nauseating!

      I love the video! It’s absolutely hillaryarious :0)

      The Dems best hope is for John Edwards to get the Democratic nomination. He has to be the least of the three evils. Then again, if Hillary or Obama is nominated, it’s a good thing for the Republicans :-)

      Katablog (2.): You hit the nail on the head with your comment “…so they can redistribute the wealth…”.

      Obama, as a member of the Trinity United Church of Christ, I have to assume, must believe in his church’s Mission Statement which includes the following:

      “The fortunate who are among us combine forces with the less fortunate to become agents of change for God who is not pleased with America’s economic mal-distribution!”

      Here is the 3rd sentence from the main page of the website for the church (TUCC):

      “We are an African people, and remain “true to our native land,” the mother continent, the cradle of civilization. God has superintended our pilgrimage through the days of slavery, the days of segregation, and the long night of racism.”

      http://www.tucc.org/about.htm

      We need to educate ourselves about the presidential candidates and their core beliefs.

    14. katablog on January 27th, 2008 11:44 am

      You are right Red, ya all ain’t seen nothing yet when it comes to the “clinton machine”. They don’t take “no” for an answer. There will be claims against Obama (true or false) in the final desperate hours before or during the demos convention if the race looks even slightly close.

      With all my imagination, I can’t understand why anyone would want such a filthy politician as President.

    15. Scared Monkeys on January 27th, 2008 5:10 pm

      Katablog … you are not just whistling Dixie:

      I expect to see Obama pics with farm animals & clowns coming out of the Clinton camp. These people are truly evil and will stop at nothing to win. They invented the politics of personal destruction. They will destroy their own party for their own personal power.

      I think they are both equally terrifying. I speak from experience when I say that their healthcare plans would be disastrous. If they put socialized medicine in place (and that is what they want) people can look for rationed care, killing off the elderly (by denying them care other than pain pills if they are lucky), very poor natal care, and waiting lists for routine operations that might not be life threatening but are debilitating..such that people are going to Eastern Europe for vacation packages that include treatment!!!
      On top of which the terrorists are just waiting to have a nice sitdown talk with Obama to air all their greivances and get a nice handout to pacify them, or else!!! In this area much as I dislike the Clintons, I think Hil and Bil would be a better bet.
      Time to check out some ways to protect what little wealth one has, because they’ve never seen a tax they didn’t like. (Seriously folks an hour or two with a good financial planner would be well spent).

    17. Betty on January 27th, 2008 7:19 pm

      Hillary Clinton was on CBS, Face The Nation, today and here are some excerpts from the transcripts.

      Hillary, in trying to make excuses for Bill’s agressive campaign attacks, said:

      “My husband has such a great commitment to me and to my campaign. You know, he loves me,” she said.

      “Husbands and wives get out there and work on each others’ behalf. I certainly did that for him for many years. And I’m very grateful for all of the help he’s given both supporting me, along with our daughter, and making the case for my candidacy.”

      I suppose in the grand tradition of the Clinton’s we need to know HER definition of ‘commitment’ and ‘love.’

      IMO, she is the queen of blather and bloviate. LOL

    18. Richard on January 28th, 2008 4:36 pm

      To me, the most amazing thing about these results is that John Edwards, from North Carolina, a neighboring state, came in dead last.

    19. yoyo muffintop on January 29th, 2008 1:21 am

      #15 – Come on now…calling people “evil” serves no purpose and a bit inane. imo.

      Calling her corrupt, mendacious and grasping is what you should be doing – there are facts to support these accusations.

      Obama’s pastor disses Natalee Holloway
      ‘White girl goes off and gives it up’ in Aruba, preacher pal says

      Natalee Holloway

      Sen. Barack Obama’s longtime friend and spiritual adviser trashed the memory of a missing and presumed dead American teenage girl, according to church publications reviewed by WND.

      Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the controversial minister of Obama’s church in Chicago, cited the case of Natalee Holloway’s disappearance in Aruba in complaining about what he sees as the media’s bias in covering white victims of crime over black victims.

      “Black women are being raped daily in Darfur, Sudan, in the Congo and in Sub-Saharan Africa. That doesn’t make news,” Wright said in the August 2005 edition of Trumpet Magazine, a publication of his Trinity United Church of Christ.

      But, “One 18-year-old white girl from Alabama gets drunk on a graduation trip to Aruba, goes off and ‘gives it up’ while in a foreign country, and that stays in the news for months!” he added. “Maybe I am missing something!”

      (Story continues below)

      The circumstances involving the coed’s disappearance remain unclear, and the case remains unsolved. Holloway left Mountain Brook, Ala., on a May 2005 senior class trip to Aruba.

      Barack Obama

      Attempts to reach her family for comment were unsuccessful. But her mother, Beth Holloway, has written a book, “Loving Natalee,” in which she reveals her daughter named Jesus Christ as one of the most influential people in her life in a trove of writings she found in her bedroom.

      In the same 2005 church publication, Wright suggested “white America” had the 9/11 attacks coming, while calling for business “divestment from Israel,” which he refers to as a “racist” state along with America.

      “In the 21st century, white America got a wake-up call after 9/11/01,” he wrote on page 7. “White America and the Western world came to realize that people of color had not gone away, faded into the woodwork or just ‘disappeared,’ as the Great White West kept on its merry way of ignoring Black concerns.”

      Obama says he is “proud” of Wright and values their 20-year friendship.

      Though Wright has nurtured Obama’s political career as a close adviser and mentor, the Democrat presidential hopeful says they don’t agree on everything. Wright married Obama and baptized his daughters.

      Louis Farrakhan

      In the November/December 2007 issue of Trumpet, Wright sang the praises of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who has described whites as “blue-eyed devils” and Jews as “bloodsuckers.”

      “He brings a perspective that is helpful and honest,” Wright said. “Minister Farrakhan will be remembered as one of the 20th and 21st century giants of the African-American religious experience.”

      Wright then held Farrakhan up as a pillar of “integrity.”

      “His integrity and honesty have secured him a place in history as one of the nation’s most powerful critics,” he continued. “His love for Africa and African-American people has made him an unforgettable force, a catalyst for change and a religious leader who is sincere about his faith and his purpose.”

      Farrakhan’s photo is splashed across the cover of the church magazine, which gushes “the Minister truly epitomized greatness.”

      On Nov. 2, 2007, Wright presented Farrakhan with a “lifetime achievement” award during a Trumpet gala held at the Hyatt Regency Chicago. The tribute included a three-and-a-half minute video lionizing “the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.”

      “For his commitment to truth, education and leadership, we honor Minister Louis Farrakhan with the Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. Lifetime Achievement Award,” the video announces.

      Last week, Obama distanced himself from Farrakhan, but did not distance himself from Wright or disavow his praise for Farrakhan.

      John Edwards is withdrawing from the presidential race.

      Giuliani has withdrawn as well. Apparently he threw his support to McCain, who won the Florida GOP primary. Hillary Clinton won for the Democrats.
