Party like it's 2008
At a campaign event in New Hampshire, the president waited patiently as he was “mic checked” by a group of protesters.
“Mic check!” they shouted. “Mr. President, over 4,000 peaceful protesters have been arrested. While bankers continue to destroy the American economy. You must stop the assault on our First Amendment rights. Your silence sends a message that police brutality is acceptable. Banks got bailed out. We got sold out.”
But the rest of their message was quickly drowned out by Obama supporters chanting, “Fired up, ready to go!” and “Obama!”
Well, of course, since it was well established in 2008 that I'm a racist, I want no part of the Ds [that's irony, for the irony challenged].
And you can hardly blame Obama's operatives for running the same plays that worked for them in the past. No doubt they won't be forced to resort to caucus fraud this time, so we will at least have the comfort that this primary will be cleaner.
