This nose up look is why I can't stand Obama


When he does that, like during the debate, I get all icky. Really looks like the know it all professor who really only knew how to study and take tests better than the rest of us.

But Hillary reminds me of looking up to my Grandma when I really really wanted that stuffed animal on the shelf at FAO.



Hillary is My 44

43. how DARE he wear a tie like that?
Doesn't he realize that tie symbolizes the infamous International Union of left-handed, transvestite, myopic, porno-reading, pot-smoking, tap-dancing, reformation-minded, slightly deaf, retired dutch windmill repairmen and dike salesmen? Just wait til Penn does a poll on the ties that Obama wears. Then, he'll see. Boy, will he get it then.

73. That does it -- another anti-tap dancing thread!
I'm sick of this shit, and I won't put up with it. Any time people disagree with something, they think they can compare it to tap dancing in derogatory terms. Tap dancers are people too, and don't deserve to be lumped in with such as the myopic. Sometimes I want to quit this damn board when I see screeds of intolerance like this.

Tap dancers are always happy and smiling (except maybe Savion Glover.) When it rains, they sing in it, and I'm sick and tired of this incessant bullshit!

180. Well, I'm here to support my fellow left handed, myopic, transvestites
that are porno-reading, pot-smoking, reformation-minded and slightly deaf. Ok, maybe I'm not left handed and the transvestite thing was just that one Halloween; pot smoking I quit about 25 years ago. But I am reformation minded and Renaissance minded as well and I do have a bit of a hearing problem in my left ear. But other than that, I am really pissed off about that darn tie.

13. Well it sure ain't gonna be Obama
He's the Captain of the "Get along gang"

I don't think any of them will --but out of the pack the two most likely will be:

Kucinich --'cos that's who he is.

or

Hillary -- 'cos Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
(This is the woman who practically coined the phrase "Right Wing Conspiracy")

23. Guess you missed all that protection Bill gave to Poppy Bush throughout the 90s?
when there were so many outstanding matters of Poppy's involvements in illegal operations.

http://consortiumnews.com/2006/111106.html

You may also have believed that Marc Rich was pardoned for being just another wealthy tax evader wrongfully charged when he was actually another operative of Poppy Bush's BCCI and IranContra ventures. Yes - Clinton pardoned an IranContra figure for Poppy.

32. Uhm. She won't open the books because Bill's legacy is now contingent on protecting
Poppy's secrecy and privilege.

You think Hillary wants the public to know how much Bill did to protect Poppy?

Hard to explain how she didn't know the extent of the protection given throughout that time.

and continue today, now with Bill Clinton cheerfully showing up at Poppy's side for the last 7 years vouching for his integrity.

about Bill's protection of Bush1 shows she is not observant, not comprehensive, has no sense of discernment and shouldn't be president.

70. I didn't say she knows nothing.
I said she hasn't been President yet.

She's not her husband in case you haven't noticed.

She's her own woman.

You don't know what she would do as President, and saying she would exactly the same thing as Bill is not winning your argument, it's baseless speculation.

Bill Clinton's legacy is not Hillary Clinton's legacy.

159. HAHA - you want to claim she was oblivious to the protection granted Poppy Bush?
That's a GREAT quality to have as president - someone who never noticed for 8 yrs in the WH that her husband had policies of protecting BushInc throughout the 90s.

Guess he never shared his foreign policy discussions with her then since they usually involved continuing Poppy's policies.

Edited on Fri Dec-14-07 12:30 PM by xultar
has much to do with the look. FURTHERMORE...looks ain't got shit to do with it.

What about issues and such? Why not provide objective discussion on the issues not looks. This post is just as bad as those who ding Clinton on her looks.

I have to tag this as a loser post.

so when people pummel your ass for this stoopid post don't expect an escape pod.

51. Yes I'm being shallow. Horibbly so
and I would not base my vote on how a candidate looks. I will in fact support Obama if he gets the nomination. I'll phone bank, knock on doors and write letters to the editor.

I am a Democrat.

The point of this post is it is exactly the kind of crap we will face in the general. The average non-thinking republican and many independents do base their vote on looks, snark from Limbaugh and lots of other crap.

If any of you think Obama is immune then I'm sorry for outcome that Rove has planned.

Hillary is My 44

69. I know what you mean. Guliani looks so much more presidential.
I'm considering voting for him if he gets the nomination.

Though having video media coverage is interesting. Remember back when many didn't know FDR was in a wheelchair for quite some time. Too many people are looking for a Big Daddy, or a King Figure, when they look at the pres candidates, and miss what all comes with the package.

16. That's how "leaders" are always photographed
from the waist looking up, as though they're on some sort of pedestal in front of the photographer.

It's stupid and I wish to hell they'd stop it. It's completely inappropriate in a country that calls itself a democracy. It's more fitting to those that have royalty.

21. While I think this is a ridiculous topic
It's quite obvious from the lighting that the klieg lights are above them.

Not below them.

The angle has more to do with the fact that the candidates are on a stage, and the photographer would have been in the audience.

It is ridiculous. And, you're probably right about the shooter
but look carefully at the angle of both heads. Those noses and chins seem to be seeking a more comfortable, middle place between the light from above and below. I have no way of knowing if there were lights on stage other than the photographers' flashes -- in themselves, they can make you pull your chin up and away.

And, then someone on a message board reads it as arrogance. Oh, my.

46. Here's my candidate...a write in
Edited on Fri Dec-14-07 01:11 PM by Strawman
She's way more down to earth. And she's not too high falutin' to rock out to Dio either.

Hillary thinks she's all high and mighty with her fancy business lady suit. I'll never vote for her. She's way to snobby to bust out into "Rainbow in the Dark."

55. Reply to all - Yes I'm being shallow and dumb for a point
Edited on Fri Dec-14-07 01:19 PM by NewHampster
This is copied from one of my replies above.

Yes, I'm being shallow, horribly so and I would not base my vote on how a candidate looks. I will in fact support Obama if he gets the nomination. I'll phone bank, knock on doors and write letters to the editor.

I am a Democrat.

The point of this post is it is exactly the kind of crap we will face in the general. The average non-thinking republican and many independents do base their vote on looks, snark from Limbaugh and lots of other crap.

If any of you think Obama is immune then I'm sorry for the outcome that Rove has planned.

You say, "LOL OMBAMA LOOKS DUMB. HILLARY LOOKS NICE. NOT LIKE DUMB OBAMA."
Everyone else goes, "WTF that's stupid. Nobody will be convinced by that shit."
You say, "THE REPUBLICANS ARE GONING TO SAY OBAMA LOOKS DUMB! THAT IS MY PIONT!!!!!"
To which I now reply, "Good. It'll work about as well as it did for you in this thread."

Ironic that you claim you're worried about people voting for looks (or for that matter, charisma of any sort), since Clinton polls worst on charisma of the Big Three.

The point of this post is it is exactly the kind of crap we will face in the general.

Calling it foreshadowing or satire doesn't explain the ubersincere "looking up to my Grandma" passage, where you point out that Obama doesn't superficially resemble your ancestors. If it's meant to be a mockery of racism and anti-intellectualism in the future tense, why does the Goofus and Gallant caption compare Obama to your candidate and not someone he'd face in a general election?

I simply cannot STAND the ties Sen. Obama wears. They look so -- I don't know -- so much like what some rich Senator would wear. I would never vote for someone who wears ties like THAT!

And Sen. Clinton's jewelry! I mean, come ON! It looks like jewelry someone would wear if they were trying to impress someone. I would never vote for someone who wears jewelry like THAT!

Hillary smiled with the patience of a grandmother stuck babysitting bratty kids as reporters barraged her with breathless questions about whether Obama's drug history is the sort of surprise she's talking about and whether she thinks general-election voters might punish him for it.

But Hillary wasn't biting. "I am only talking about myself," she insisted, looking unusually resplendent in a dark suit with a red blouse and multicolored necklace.

I'm not sure about the necklace.

Personally, my problem with Obama on all that isn't that he's been honest about doing drugs in his youth- he gets props for that- my problem is that he is too hypocritical to take the next step and say it's time to rethink the idiotic, $40 Billion-a-year drug war that isn't working, even as it is filling our prisons with non-violent offenders. :shrug:

185. Actually, the lesson in both issues is that there is a strong "Mind Your Own Damn Business" streak
in the US Populace.

The GOP is coming unhinged because the religious loonies who run that party are insane kooks who want to jail gays and outlaw the birth control pill. If we would stand up strong for across-the-board notions of personal freedom- getting government out of people's bodies, bedrooms, and bloodstreams- we would WIN votes. And Gun Control is an area where, for some reason, many people seem to think the Democratic party is out to take their guns away; even though that's not true, the issue is a proven loser for us.

We stand up for the rights of individuals, the Constitution, choice and personal freedom, and we WIN. That's my opinion.

This is SUCH a once in a lifetime opportunity for open government and re-prioritizing what security means. What freedom of individuals and collective support mean.
NO drug war. Healthcare for ALL. BIG ISSUES.

But instead...this.
GOP will attack our candidates? Shocking revelation.
So let us spend our time practicing that.

IN a way, this a form of "triangulation" - that is, the GOOD kind.
It could capture many votes in the "don't tread on me" branch of GOP/Libertarians, who are very dissaffected right now - as well as many non-voters, who need clear distinctions to be drawn...
NOW is a perfect time for that, too.

Sadly, we are missing a golden opportunity.

126. Oh, I totally agree with the "looks" deal!
A big part of what we do where I work is media training. Hillary has one of the best media trainers ever. You have to think in terms of numbers... the average and below average thinkers in America are going to go for the visceral, brain stem, knee-jerk reaction they have to the way a candidate looks, walks and talks. What they have to say is of little concern, sadly.

Unfortunately, here at DU as of late, you must tell people exactly what you are thinking. There's a lot of mind-reading and shark jumping around here. Sheesh.

111. To be fair to the OP, I bet there will be a lot of people who will decide against Obama based on
just those kinds of nuances. It's sad; we should really be looking at platforms and plans, but so many people "go with their gut", their unconscious perceptions. Al Gore had that problem: people figured he was a nerdy "know-it-all", condescending to the voter. Now that he is a superhero (grin :) ) we should never forget how he was perceived by the common person during the 2000 election. I am hoping Obama doesn't get judged on small nuances, but, unfortunately, that seems to be how politics works.

And I do agree with the person who said "uppity" indicating that racism may play a part in how Obama's look is perceived. A white male has a sense of entitlement and is allowed to have it, up to a point (see Al Gore). But a black man is still expected by some in this country not to act entitled. And women are expected NEVER to feel entitled to anything, not even their own bodies. Hillary and Obama are both working against this perception that women and blacks are not to act entitled about anything substantial or meaningful.

you intended to say something completely different. You can say "oh, I meant THE REPUBLCIANS WILL SMAER HIM" all you want, but people aren't buying it because that doesn't fit the OP. The OP was pretty clearly, "Obama makes me feel icky, and Hillary makes me feel cozy."

134. Where was the OP alluding to Republicans?
"I can't stand Obama. I feel all icky looking at Obama. Hillary reminds me of my grandma. Hillary is my 44."

Which of those had anything to do about the election, the Republicans, or absolutely anything but the OP's personal disgust with Obama / warm fuzzies towards Clinton?

140. My follow-up posts like
Yes, I'm being shallow, horribly so and I would not base my vote on how a candidate looks. I will in fact support Obama if he gets the nomination. I'll phone bank, knock on doors and write letters to the editor.

I am a Democrat.

The point of this post is it is exactly the kind of crap we will face in the general. The average non-thinking republican and many independents do base their vote on looks, snark from Limbaugh and lots of other crap.

If any of you think Obama is immune then I'm sorry for the outcome that Rove has planned.

a series of pathetic attempts to spin an embarrassingly failed personal attack as an earnest warning of Republican trickery. In that regard, this thread is a microcosm of Clinton campaign as it stands now.

129. And how is this different from "but his middle name is Hussein"?
Or "But he's black- a lot of people won't vote for a black man".

You know who a lot of non-thinking Republicans, independents and Limbaugh listeners would sooner gnaw off their own feet than vote for? Hillary.

So big fucking deal. Yes, I'll support the nominee, too. Which is why I want the best person with the best platform and approach to the issues to win. We tried to out-guess and out-flank Rove in 2004, remember? John Kerry- with his vote for the IWR and his "War Hero" status- was "unassailable".. remember?

In retrospect, I think we would have done better with Dean.

So I say vote for the one you like, not the one you think is "impervious to attack".

198. I didn't support Kerry for his "unassailability" but for his platform and experience.
The foreign policy experience, knowing the BFEE like NOBODY else (Iran-contra, BCCI) and a GREAT environmental record.
All of these and more were the reasons - he was far above the competition in those areas, and THAT is why I supported him.

So, we disagree.
BUT I disagree with you RESPECTFULLY.

And I fully support Howard Dean, and he has done a GREAT job at DNC.
He may have been a better candidate, or not.
We came REALLY close, if not for the shenanigans, and the betrayals.
The media wanted to destroy Dean AND Kerry, and boy did they do their part.

See how we could keep it civil, and not destroy what common ground we have?
I prefer that.

RESPECT to you, Impeachdubya.

You say, "THE REPUBLICANS ARE GONING TO SAY OBAMA LOOKS DUMB! THAT IS MY PIONT!!!!!"

You got caught out there saying something incredibly stupid and now you're backtracking. That's obvious enough.

Your stated reason for the post, moreover, is not shallow, but ridiculously elitist. People generally vote for real reasons, even when we disagree with that vote. "Rove has planned..." Yeeesh.

197. Didn't some people say Kerry (another non-Clinton) looked elitist?
Edited on Sat Dec-15-07 03:23 AM by Leopolds Ghost
Oops, I forgot, most Americans even DUers bought the koolaid on Kerry,
he's persona non grata now. Damn liberal elitists! :eyes:

Didn't Clinton or someone once pride herself on eating
at Applebees, and chastize Kerry/Edwards for not doing
the same?

Apparently right-thinking, public-safety-oriented
"moderate Dems" are not elitists. They're not afraid to comfort
us in our illusions on a variety of old wives tales ("issues")
spoon fed us by the media.

They have "the courage to be comforting and project a sense of strength."

You will never look at them and god forbid get the impression that they
know more than you do about anything.

Whatever happened to the courage of convictions?

"Down to earth" USED to mean unafraid to speak your mind. That, anyhow, was the Yankee esthetic. Now "down to earth" just means "one of us".

"I feel comforted by him/her, not challenged." -- Always a bad sign.

200. wow, you really have substantive criteria for judging candidates
-- but I suppose that's necessary when the candidate you support is just window dressing for the corporate slave masters. don't bother your beautiful mind with anything deep or important or anything.

202. Of all the body parts people want to admire, why NOSES?

So one part would rule Hillary out, big deal...

How many of them have brains?

And if everybody votes for the candidate with the big feet, pray we don't get stomped on by them.

At least Sanjaya isn't running. The day the age qualifier goes frm 35 to 18 is the day I'll worry.

210. OH NOES!!1!!! Uppity nigrahs who don't remind us of our grannies!
:eyes:


Just when I think that Hillary's people can't possibly go any lower, they dig deep and make it happen.


Mark my words, NewHampster: you -- the lot of you -- are alienating people. You're coming up with stuff that some of us are not going to be in a hurry to forgive or forget. There may come a time when Hillary's supporters regret burning those bridges.

212. That's both illogical and weird. It's fine if you want to reject a candidate based on his centrist
policies on other reasons heath care, immigration, passivity on protecting the middle class, sabre rattling over alleged terrorists, or even because he has moved well to the center since his liberal days before he was a national figure.

But selecting or rejection a candidate because you don't like the angle of his nose is unreasoned and borders on offensive.
