| This has to be a fucking record.
The Wind Up: "Crash the economy, embroil us in war and shred the constitution."
The Pitch: "Run babbling Idiots against a great Orator, and the historic figure of a Black man or a Woman."
The Hit!: I cried tears of joy, when Obama was inaugurated. My son would grow up in a World when it was just "given" and "totally normal" for a Black Man to be his Leader. Even while knowing he was a centrist, a hard pill for a hippy-commie-pinko-chick. I was ELATED, proud. Ready for the white fucking power structure to become one of humanity, not goddamned WHITE EXCEPTIONALISM. They counted on that, hoping people like me wouldn't criticize him. But, I judge by the MAN. Period.
The Fielding: Place the Rabid forefront and Blame Liberals for the Wind up. (SET UP)
The Catch: Patronize the previous admin's followers and policies, thus alienate your own base.
The Out: They are already predicting a landslide for R's in 2010, and 2012.
Fastest game ever.
I'm going to excerpt a fiction I once wrote:
Look at Evo, man. He unionized his workers, legitimized his industry. He started with way the hell less than you. Tomorrow, tomorrow, you could have your people go to any satellite town nearby this Wealthy city built on the backs of those who now have nothing, you could go and have them fix the roads, and build one free clinic. You could employ a staff of doctors. You could put your name on it. You wouldn't even miss a penny.
From there, you could gladly employ people with the best wages, and twist those whom you have influence over to raise their worker's standards. People would flock to work for you, abandon your political opponents, you would be seen as a King among men, not just another in a long line of powerful abusers they have suffered. The money would flow back into your coffers as everyone started to afford your expanding services.
With those people, you could seize from your enemies those who hold back things the people need to survive, you could make the water, the utilities theirs, and run off all the foreign competition. Do that, man and nothing would get in your way, as your people move from hopeless despair into believing you have made them safe and prosperous. You would be the one that delivered them, a modern day Moses.
You could move from Power to Leadership. From Deference borne of Fear to Revered.
You are standing in a place of supreme power right now, and probably enjoying its benefits beyond belief, but in the end yours will just be another grave they spit upon. This power, while real is empty. Are you really happy, looking over your shoulder? Even while entertaining the other power brokers who drink from your champagne fountains, walk your gilded halls, lust after the beautiful people surrounding you, when you know your cartel is a temporary empire.
You have it within your reach to change the very fabric of existence for your people.
He coulda been a Contender.
He could have been Legacy. Now he is just another Failed Presidency in his 1st year. And the rabid will rise.
He BLEW HCR.
