Tuli Can't Stop Talking

These are just my thoughts on contemporary issues and an attempt to open up a dialogue.

Point of View

Everyone views the world through their own lens, or as they say Point of View (POV). That is one of the reasons that I don’t believe in objectivity. I do believe that there are such things as “facts.” And I do believe that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but I don’t believe that you are entitled to your own “facts.” That said, most folks regard or disregard “facts” based on their own POV.

So having made that statement, I think the Senator Obama is viewing the American Electorate through his own POV. This is a big mistake. I think that he needs to get around and about more. Due to my involvement with horseracing I meet with many different types of folks who make-up the American Electorate. Obama does nuance, the American Electorate that I come in contact with does not do nuance. The American Electorate does vote its prejudice over its interests however. So if the Good Senator thinks that because he is on the right side of the issues and is Post-Racial, and that that will win the day he is totally wrong.

Didn’t we have this experiment in 2000 and it hasn’t worked out that well. Then in 2004 the American Electorate elected an abject failure when the evidence was overwhelming that he and his administration were an abject failure. But you know the other guy was so “French.”

Now, I don’t know how the Senator can get over this other than to define the Republican Senator as more of the same that we have been suffering from the Republican Bush Administration for the last eight years and the Republican Congress since 1995.

McCain is part of the Republican Problem not part of the solution. If Obama’s campaign can’t make the Republican Economic and Financial Meltdown an albatross around John McCain’s neck and scare the bejesus out of the American Electorate then we need to start having a test for voting. Well, actually the Republicans would love that (being anti-suffrage that is), so I guess we need to dumb down the rhetoric to sound bites that even a ten year old can get ala Goebbels/Rove.

How we deal with the race issue and independents is above my pay-grade as they say. As for Palin she is nothing more than a diversion, you know that bright shiny thing that distracts the MSM from the real issues. So, if voting your interests according to the issues isn’t your thing how do we get you to acknowledge your interests and get you to vote for yourself interest through the lens of your own POV?

History shows that it is clear that nuance ain’t going to do it.
