That's Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "The Needed Extension" from Sunday and this is from Hillary is 44's "Monica Lewinsky And What Is Bill Clinton Up To With Tonight's Speech?????:"
Recently in “The Battle For Bill Clinton” we discussed what Republicans should do in response to Bill Clinton. We discussed I/E Republicans and E/I Republicans (Intelligence over Emotion and vice-versa) and thus far, to their very great credit, most Republican/conservative websites/spokespersons have taken our advice. Today Paul Ryan is once again taking our advice.
Our argument for Intelligence over Emotion in politics does not mean that emotion is to be casually dismissed. We are arguing that in politics you need to make an assessment of what your objectives/goals are and then pursue them in the most effective way possible. You might have to ditch your “feelings” about an issue or a personality but the point is you must get your aims. For instance, you have to get elected before you can govern is an intellectual truism which at times is not emotionally satisfying. We all have favorite candidates that we like/love/support who really make it difficult to win elections with but we are so emotionally connected to them that we want to take a risk and want everyone to take the risk with us. But in the cold logic of day often these preferences are foolish and should be rejected if we want to win.
To “win” first “understand”. Bill Clinton is not only a graduate from some of the greatest intellectual factories on this planet Bill Clinton is also a very organic, emotionally attuned person. He knows how to connect intellectually and at the same time “feel your pain”. Calling Bill a “phony” doesn’t work because he connects and will continue to connect. His speeches, hated by many Republicans who never understood what he was doing, were masterpieces of emotional and intellectual language. They were post modern masterpieces which infuriated Republicans/conservatives who preferred to call “liar” or use ridicule instead of seeing what was staring them in the face.
When Bill Clinton gave his famous “the era of big government is over” he invested a great many paragraphs in the same speech to discuss new “initiatives”, new government programs that were often “silly” (think school uniforms) but emotionally spoke to women voters especially and families interested in education in particular.
Republicans erupted in ridicule and anger at the seeming “lie” but Bill Clinton was not lying, he was speaking two languages – intellect and emotion. Bill understood that women and voters generally were fed up with government but that at the same time they wanted help with “kitchen table issues”. Bill Clinton addressed both seemingly contradictory viewpoints at the same time. It was masterful but Republicans did not see this until it was too late. [Obama Dimocrats and the "creative class" ridiculed the Tea Party because of the contradictions over Medicare support and resistance to government in this movement and lived to regret the ridicule.]
Republicans/conservatives and all Romney/Ryan supporters should keep their eyes on the prize, the arrows on the target, the bombers over the bomb site. The target is not Bill Clinton but rather Barack Obama.
E/I Republicans/conservatives always want to re-fight the fights they have lost already and fights they would lose again if they take on Bill Clinton. It’s always panty sniffing and Juanita Broaddrick and Monica and Me and Mrs. Jones with these people and they always lose and then scream like Daffy Duck as Bugs Bunny outwits them again. Guys, you’re not going to win a fight with Bill Clinton and even if you engage in a fight with Bill Clinton you will lose because the target is not Bill Clinton but Barack Obama.
So what should Romney/Ryan supporters whether you hate Bill Clinton or love Bill Clinton do in practical terms? First of all understand what Bill Clinton does and how. Second of all take some action, don’t sulk.
You know, there is a really big season opening football game tonight. Bill Clinton knows about this game. Bill Clinton also knows that many of the people he is supposed to seduce will be watching the football game and not him. Instead of sulking, invite people on the fence in this election over to the house to watch the game. Make last night’s low viewership ratings even lower. Phone friends who like Bill but aren’t sure about Obama just before Bill starts to speak. If you have a website, talk football. Invite white working class voters over for drinks/game and keep them away from the great seducer – Bill Clinton.
I am so disgusted with the convention. I can't believe the lies or that we're supposed to chant along. I can't believe any of the garbage that they think we're stupid enough to fall for.
We have been screwed by Barack for four years now and he thinks he can play "I'm a good Democrat. You be a good one and vote for me!"
Screw you, Barack.
You're a lazy ass son of a bitch who has refused to work the last four years and now because your no-good father was Black -- or that's what your White mommy told you -- we're supposed to vote for you? I don't think so.
You've done nothing for the people, let alone for the Black community, so go f**k yourself, Barack, you're on your own. And I've never been more insulted than hearing the lies from whores like Tammy Duckworth and Steve Israel. May they all go f**k themselves.
You should all have a fun stay in hell which is where liars like you go.
I'm am so disgusted with my party tonight.
