What you are about to see, assuming you watch the video, will be a former Democrat President, and one most conservatives in this country really did not like all that much by the way, come as close to endorsing the Republican nominee as he can get without officially crossing that line. Make no mistake about it, this one is a knock out punch for Team Zero. I’ll explain afterwards.
Why would Bill Clinton add his name to the exponentially growing list of Democrats, and recently former Democrats who are working hard to undermine the current President’s reelection bid? My theory is this. I have known for some time that the Democrat apparatchiks have been saying different things when in private and when in public. Publicly, they have all defended their man as the most qualified person in the room, America’s only hope for a bright future. Privately, they have expressed fears of having elected a man to our highest office that is not only a complete incompetent, but has combined that incompetence with a narcissistic arrogance that borders on being bad enough to have any non President institutionalized. If not having outright fears for their country, they have all shared fears for the future of their political party should this man be allowed to operate unchecked for four more years. For what ever the reasons are, there are plenty of Democrat Party Apparatchiks who do not want to see a second term for the Obama Presidency.
That, no matter who you are, spells major political trouble for any one running for elective office. It will mean less volunteers knocking on doors, making phone calls, stuffing envelopes, etc. It will mean fewer bus drivers picking up homeless people and offering them packs of cigarettes for their votes in urban centers across the electoral rich states on election day. It will mean less people raising cash to be used on what is sure to be a scorched Earth campaign strategy. It will mean the loss of the Clinton Machine, which quite frankly is far more powerful than the Daly Machine.
Remember back to 2008. Early in September, McCain actually had emerged with a 5 point lead, and the Clintons and Obamas were not speaking with one another. Many people point to the Lehman collapse as what turned the election around that month, but that was also the same week that Obama reached out to Clinton, spent an entire day with Billy Jeff, and the Clintons took to the stump in earnest campaigning vigorously for the Bamster. I believe that this, as much as any other reason, was what turned the election around for Obama.
Make no mistake about it. Obama’s grand strategy was to have Romney’s Status as the embodiment of all things Wall Street be the central campaign issue for November of 2012. The entire OWS movement was created for just this very reason. What we have been seeing over the last couple of weeks has been a very clear message from a large group of very influential Democrats that they still agree with Capitalism, and wish not to be a part of the Marxist messaging. Cory Booker, Ed Rendell, Devall Patrick, Artur Davis, and Bill Clinton, have just served a devastating gut punch to the only message that Obama was planning for his campaign. Two of these five have just thrown a hay maker and announced that they will not be hitting the stump on his behalf. One of them connected, Artur Davis, by announcing that he will be actively stumping for the opposition. For anyone who has any illusions of Davis’ value to Team Obama, he was the Southern Campaign Coordinator for the Obama campaign in 2008. All of the Campaign managers of the southern states answered to Davis, more than just a costly defection. The flood has begun in earnest, and for Obama, the water is deep. Too bad he’s not a capitalist who is willing to support the private corporation that sells life boats. That government boat provided by FEMA was detained due to the Davis Bacon act, and is sitting in dry dock in a Venezuelan boat house.
