THAT WAS AWESOME!
You couldn't have made that up.
The Clinton's really are the MASTERS of the political arena. Zeke is impressed. An Zeke Likes Obama.
Ok. This morning all of the News Channels idiots report that Bill Clinton has "said" that his wife would "go along with whatever the Rules Committee decides today". The trap is set.
Obama's peeps walk in and naively offer up to seat the Florida Delegates in round 1. No arguement at all. He coulda made a stink but I think, HE thought Hill was gonna be reasonable.
Nope: Clinton's guy whines that it is an "outrage" and he is "shocked" that only 1/2 of the Delegates are seated blah blah blah.
Clinton wins 18 or whatever more Delegates in Florida then Obama, even though the Rules clearly state she should get none, and she STILL claims she was slighted. And PEOPLE BELIEVE IT! Wow. That is some politicker right there.
Oh and it got better! Round 2. Then Michigan was discussed. The State who's Democratic Party went out of it's way to screw with the Early Window Rule (Moving ahead of Nevada even), The DNC voted to give those retards 1/2 their Delegates too, and none to Obama officially yet, mind you.
Quite the Coup for Hill, as Michigan's Democrats initiated the early move and only Hill was on the ballot.(Obama shoulda KNOWN when she didn't take her name off she would do something like this)
The Clinton folks immediately reacted. Happy they got ANY Delegates and Obama got None? In a State that everyone agreed was off limits and wouldn't count?
They started screaming and carrying on about how even though they got away with breaking the rules twice and getting much better than any Nevada District Judge woulda given them, they were "appalled" by the decision.
Oh yeah; and they are gonna appeal to the Credentials Committee in Denver anyway. As they always had planned.
They tricked Obama into not challenging Florida, or really even Michigan, gaining Delegates, while maintaining the idea that she is being treated unfair.
Amazing job. If you were wondering why people always said the Clinton's were "the best political operatives they ever saw", here is the proof.
Obama got Punk'd GOOD today.
