In response to Rudy Giuliani’s and Sarah Palin’s convention jibes at The O’s experiences as a community organizer, the Obama campaign is issuing statements of outrage, reminding us all that Barack Obama was ministering to South Chicago residents whose lives had been devastated by the recent closing of nearby steel mills which had been the economic engine driving that community.

What the O’s minions are failing to take into consideration is that much of the economic hardship brought upon his unfortunate constituents was the consequence of actions by two other major Democrat Party constituencies, Big Labor and environmentalists, both over-empowered by an over-regulating federal government.


Yes, culpable steel industry executives were too slow to recognize the new foreign competition that was developing and adapt accordingly, but it was the greedy unions, the hyper-vigilant EPA and the U.S. Labor Department’s newly released pit bull, OSHA, hungry for regulatory red meat, which made the needed adaptation impossible to attain.


Too-high wages with too-cushy benefits, too-extreme environmental demands and harassing over-regulation by big government drove the steel industry from America and straight into the hands of growing Asian economies, leaving those unfortunates in South Chicago to wonder just what the hell had happened to their high-paying jobs and the rosy retirements their union-backed, Democratic political machine had promised them.


Under an Obama administration, a similar fate awaits larger segments of America, fired by the same union-driven, high wage, protectionist policies and environmental extremism of those earlier times. Democrats, socialists, Marxists and union leaders (yes I know those terms are redundant) never seem to grasp the truth of hoary aphorisms such as, “Don’t bite the hand that feeds you,” or “Don’t kill the golden goose,” and “Don’t foul your own nest.”

The national press corps is beginning to get a taste of the anger they have created among a large percentage of the American public over their treatment of Sarah Palin. It will take some longer than others to grasp the magnitude of the disaster they have created for their failing industry.


Joe Curl of the Washington Times reports  that angry crowds vigorously booed the media in Cedarbug, WI:


Hundreds of angry people in this small town outside Milwaukee taunted reporters and TV crews traveling with Sen. John McCain on Friday, chanting “Be fair!” and pointing fingers at a pack of journalists as they booed loudly.


Baltimore Sun columnist Susan Reimer is not happy at the amount of attention her incredibly snide, error filled September 1 column A woman – but why this woman? has garnered.
A handful of people wrote to say that I had captured exactly their reaction to the Palin nomination. But the rest of the responses were vehement or venomous… And more than 316,000 people viewed the column on The Baltimore Sun Web site. That number — more than 100 times the attention I normally receive — actually frightened me.


Newsbusters‘ Warner Todd Huston notes


She was “actually frightened,” you people! Give me a break. What? Is she crying? There’s no crying in journalism.


He then dissects Reimer’s original bit of feminist snark before taking her and her colleagues to task over the clueless bubble they seem to occupy.  


To close my discussion with you, Reimer, I have to ask: don’t you see the hatred that you expressed for this woman? Don’t you see that your snide comments about her Down Syndrome child and your abhorrence with every American that votes Republican — which is half the electorate, by the way — just might raise a bit of ire out there? Can you really be so shocked that your spittle specked rage was met with a bit of resistance?
If not, well, you really aren’t as smart as you might like to imagine.


It may still be uncertain who will win this campaign, but it is clear who already has lost: the legacy media.

What has Obama done?

What has Obama done?

The media have so far focused on uncovering personal faults in Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and her family. As opposed to covering her record in expanding employment opportunities for Alaskans, while delivering energy to the rest of the nation. As mayor of Wasilla, she delivered growth and jobs, as she continued to do governor.


What exactly has Barack Obama done for his constituents when it comes to jobs? Aside from the feckless grants he gave to ineffective programs that failed to improve the education of Chicago public schools students.


The unemployment rate in Chicago is 7.5 % as of August 21st, far above the national average.
What is Obama doing about un-employment in Chicago?

How scared are Obama and his advisers of that former hick town mayor and now governor of a thinly populated frozen state? This scared. 
Obama to Dispatch Female Surrogates
ST. PAUL — Senator Barack Obama will increasingly lean on prominent Democratic women to undercut Gov. Sarah Palin and Senator John McCain, dispatching Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton to Florida on Monday and creating a rapid-response team to deploy female surrogates to battleground states, Obama advisers said on Thursday.

Mrs. Clinton’s campaign event in Florida, her first for Mr. Obama since the Democratic convention last month, will include a forceful response to the searing attacks and fresh burst of energy that Ms. Palin injected into the race with her convention speech on Wednesday night, Obama aides said.

And of course Ms. Clinton will be glad to help her former opponent.  In her own way.
Advisers to Mrs. Clinton, who has been on vacation this week, said that she stands ready to help the Obama-Biden ticket, but they urged not to overestimate the effect she could have, noting that she had other commitments this fall, like campaigning and raising money for Senate candidates. [emphasis added]
For the public record, Senator Obama professed not to be worried.
“I’ve been called worse on the basketball court, so it’s not that big of a deal,” he said.
Governor Palin was a star high school basketball player where she earned her nickname “Sarah barracuda.”
