Operation Chaos II

May 10, 2008

Corruption of the Democratic Primary process is now chic, as proven by Conservatives, and encouraged by Rush Limbaugh, who believe that a protracted Democratic Primary season will ultimately serve Republicans well. The reasoning offered to support this strategy, as we have been given, is that a “Bloodied Up” Obama & Clinton will be the result of revealed faults and short-comings.

Operation Chaos participants have proudly claimed, as accounted on Talk Radio and Internet Blogs, have taken to registering as Democrats in established Open Primaries (state provisions that empower the electorate to vote without respect of party in the candidate election process – primaries) and supporting Sen Clinton with the hope that neither Sen Clinton nor Sen Obama will emerge as the victor until the Democratic National Convention in August. The anticipated, and hopeful, result of this effort is that both Democratic Candidates will sufficiently flog the other and subsequently prove themselves unelectable.

Conservative Pride

Conservatives, as we have been told, are guided by a concept of morality and values that extend throughout all endeavors, political aspirations, social and personal responsibility. Democrats & Liberals, as we have been told, are guided purely by a desire for power, at the expense of morality & values. The former, as it appears, no longer applies. The justification for Operation Chaos, as we have been able to determine, has been the same Moral Relativism despised by Conservatives, that being… “They do it too.”…Accepted.

That said, Democrats are left with but a few options, as we have been able to determine. Any argument or dialog that denounces the strategy of Operation Chaos will likely result in Democrats being further defined as “Weak” and “Whining”, an option obviously explored far too often. Democrats have spoken of Operation Chaos in low tones, on Talk Radio and Internet Blogs, denouncing its effect, rather real or perceived. What matters most is not its effectiveness, as touted by Conservatives, but how to leverage the net result, Media coverage.

In their quest to maintain a stage for the Democratic Presidential candidates to “bloody” the other, Conservatives have given the Media a greater call to explore the nuances of the Democratic campaign, thus, broader coverage. Democrats can realistically benefit from Operation Chaos by continuing a soft-ball approach to differentiation during the next several weeks, conduct themselves civilly, and shape the dialog, as Sen McCain takes a back seat….. Operation Chaos II

Operation Chaos II may be the Saving Grace that both Sen Clinton & Obama need to further articulate their positions on issues that have been tracked as being the most important to all Americans. Consider it Political Crisis Management, Operation Chaos II may very well be the best approach to campaigning for Democrats nationally.

What I Learned This Week, Admin, | April 22nd, 2008, | Washington, DC

Sen. Obama’s message of Hope & Change, while inspiring to many, is built upon the premise that “something must require change”, and when presented with this conclusion his challenge is greater than convincing Americans that he is the candidate who can yield change, he must first learn who we are, then convince us of where we should be.

Sen. Obama appears to have been overtaken with the success experienced during the last twelve plus months and a Press fascinated by his appeal. Although an accomplished short-term Senator, the U.S. Presidential candidate has relied upon what worked best, delivering one-hell-of-a-speech, looking Presidential (whatever that means), and avoiding the pitfalls of policy specifics… Job well done Sen Obama.

Although effective, obviously so, this approach can only be maintained if the candidate conforms with the American Ideal, obviously not. The textbook approach to marketing Change is to Acknowledge Our Greatness, Articulate What Our Greatness Deserves and Aim for Higher Greatness.

Sen Obama, although articulate, has not proven himself a skillful enough politician to follow these old rules, as he began and remains at step three [Aim for Higher Greatness]. While his base will always be inspired with the goals of Greatness, those who must be persuaded, republicans whose Nationalism must be acknowledged, may not accept the premise that their country must be Changed.
