Patterico's Pontifications


Patterico’s Quote of the Day

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 11:23 pm

DRJ already gave us her candidate for Quote of the Day, and it was good. But I also like this one:

You know, they think that because of who I am and where my politic[al] base has traditionally been, they may want me to go sort of hustle up what Lawton Chiles used to call the ‘cracker vote’ there.

  1. I used to live in Florida, and people readily called themselves “Florida Crackers”. There were roadside restaurants, postcards, and tourist trinkets bearing the phrase.
    I’m not sure it’s going to be so offensive to Floridians to hear that, though I could be wrong.

  2. I am beginning to think that Clinton lost a little savvy after his heart operation. Seems to have the Bidenitis dementia that some heart patients suffer.

  3. Maybe so, VOR2, but I think Clinton is plenty savvy. I think this is his way of getting even with Obama campaign charges that he played the race card during the primaries.

  4. DRJ, totally agree. Obama went way past the norm treating the former Dem president that way. BHO and the entire DNC treated Hillary like crap. Now it’s payback all the way.

    And this morning, Clinton said McCain acted in good faith by delaying the debate. It’s become very presidential; McCain sets the tone and O’bumbles falls in place.

  5. VN, yep its payback. How else to explain his positive comments and compliments toward both McCain and Palin? Also he stated yesterday that if the DNC were looking to him to criticize them, they were looking at the wrong person. He wouldn’t do it. And he followed it with stating that both he and Hillary gave enthusiastic endorsements of Obama at the DNC. Heh.

    Ironic that one of my favorite people during this entire campaign has ironically been Bill Clinton! Reasonable however doesn’t play well in politics…

    Lordy oh lord, Dana we’re on the same page. But it’s not just my own delight with Bill Clinton teaching Obama a much-needed lesson. O came from the womb of Chicago crime, so he’s used to having court files cracked open… opponents bounced from the ballot… he’s always had a big daddy behind the scenes, basically like asking if he can borrow the car keys. Clinton is teaching him a valuable lesson in response to the hardcore crap that Obama flung in the primaries. May the Clintons destroy this man and send him back to the town from which he came. (Wait. Let me correct that… it’s the town and church he adopted to win the black vote. Nothing is ever sincere with the calculating Obama.)

  7. The “cracker vote” was called the “stupid white vote” during my time in student politics at college.

  8. God, I love this election. Yeah, the Clinton’s are really gonna go to bat for Barry. His win would take Hillary out for eight years which is not part of the plan. When the dems were comparing governors to Pontius Pilot, I think they picked the wrong one. See you on the cross Barry.

  9. What is Bill Clinton up to? Obama will be a fool to trust Bill Clinton. That man is bad news. He wants to support Obama but does not want to attack McCain. How is that supposed to work? I think he should banished from Obama’s campaign before he does more harm.
