I am starting to seriously think that the Obama rise is due to two factors
1 I am not Hillary. Hillary is not likeable. An Obama man said yesterday she had eight years to fix things and did nothing.
2 Optimism. Obama is a leftist but has endlessly repeated hope and change. This is out of the Clinton, Carter and Kennedy playbook. Obama like Kennedy talks about a mythical third way. Commies use this lie when it is apparent their latest poster boys are tyrants, see Vietnam.
The far left is so rabid and obsessed with Israel that they can not recognize their own. The usual turds are in a stew because Obama allegedy defended right Israel's iitself from Hezbollah rockets. This sounds like common sense to me.
