Obama Failed To Master
Alinsky's Rule #12

Alinsky's 12th Rule of Tactics:
The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.
You cannot risk being trapped by the enemy in his sudden agreement with your demand and saying, ‘You're right - we don't know what to do about this issue. Now you tell us.'
Obama himself, Organizer in Chief, had no plan. He proposed no plan to Congress. He has let committee after committee of witless tax-and-spend, haggard old liberals write the convoluted mess they're calling healthcare reform, and has virtually done nothing for own his part but bash the insurance companies, the doctors and even the patients, who ask for individual control over their own life-and-death choices.
This, dear readers, is the fundamental difference between an empty-suited celebrity and a nuts-and-bolts executive: flim-flam artistry vs. substance and real results.
Wow. Old "Fishy" Obama has started getting a lot of truly aggressive attacks from people who are pretty angry at him. His tactics of setting up straw men to attack, without naming them, does not work when the straw men are so easily identified. It turns out he is not really all that smart after all. He just played by rules that people were not familiar with. The longer he is around the more obvious his shortcomings appear. It also turns out that though he is the smartest of the liberal Democrats, he is still a pretty lightweight nobody. I don't think you are going to see Obama getting a free ride much longer. Even the moderates in America are starting to get annoyed at the liberal cover-up of this empty suit.
Maybe that is why the Democrats are now openly soliciting paid "rent-a-thugs" on Cragislist to attack Obama's opposition. Hadn't heard about that?
