The fear factor wore off

Here’s how to tell when the Democrats are scared: They obsess about things. They begin the personal attack campaigns.

Recently, the Democrats and their allies in the Got-cha! media were feeling a chill in their spine. Who is the woman, Sarah Palin? How can McCain usurp our hegamony of “I am Woman–hear me roar!” They panicked and made themselves look foolish by targeting a 17 year old girl who’s engaged and pregnant. And they paid for it in the polls.

I wish I were a fly on the wall in some of the back rooms of CNN. I’m sure there were some phone calls made when Obama’s campaign took a popular nose-dive. The attacks backfired because they were aimed at a problem that many Americans–mothers, most importantly–deal with everyday. The media demonized Obama’s base with their fearful temper-tantrum.

Someone made the pundits, magazine writers and Democrat politicians take a deep breath. We can bet that the calls were made directly from Obama’s campaign administration. Obama himself stated publicly that the attacks needed to stop. It still took weeks though, and the damage was done. Had the media remained calm, the public would have seen Palin for what she is: A relative unknown. Instead the public sensed Democrat fear and believed that there must a be a reason for it.

Obama’s campaign is back on track, for better or worse. Americans are restless in these days. Wars, economic difficulties (The world markets are unstable, not just ours), and a media that needs disaster, have convinced many of their need for a messiah.

Whatever Obama’s strengths are, I remain convinced that he is utterly naive about our world, and I need only look at his voting record, a record that without fail displays a unwavering devotion to abortion-on-demand, to know that he’s not for me.

    Nice Website! I also appreciate the fact that there is at least one other blogger here who does not appear to be a conservative-hating liberal. Thanks!

    Wait, I’m a conservative hating liberal!

    Oh wait, I’m not. I’m just saying the opposite to offer an irrational opposing viewpoint for the sake of controversy.

    Just like a liberal!
