If you have "no place to go," come here!

How low will they go?..More Obamafanaticism..

The latest, breathless entry into the "what will these clowns do next"? series, we have the following..

"From NBC/NJ's Mike Memoli
CANTON, OH -- Robert Holeman came to Timken High School here today with a message to deliver to Bill Clinton. He did -- and he said the former president wasn’t happy about it.

Clinton spoke to a capacity crowd in this Northeast Ohio town, the third of five events today in the Buckeye State. He told voters that the contest was “the power of speeches against the promise of solutions by a world-class change maker.”

Throughout the event, as Clinton made his case for his wife, Holeman’s dissenting voice could be heard. At times he simply shouted Obama’s name. When Clinton would set up a sure applause line, Holeman could be heard heckling. As soon as Clinton finished speaking, the Canton native made a beeline to the ropeline to give Clinton a piece of his mind.

“I asked the president to please stop the bickering between the campaigns,” Holeman said in an interview afterwards. “All this name calling is like the bully in the yard. He can’t get his way, he can’t get nothing done.” Holeman said he thought Clinton was “gasping for air.”

“This is the last hurrah. After March 4, Hillary Clinton will be out of the race for good, and Obama will take the commanding lead,” he said. “She should back him with her delegates immediately. That’s what I’m asking them to do.”

Holeman said that Clinton responded by saying Obama came after him first. Holeman also described Clinton’s reaction to him as “irate.”

“I think he even hit me in the face with his hand,” he said. “He did give me a little pop. It was okay, because I understand his tenacity for his wife.” Clinton did engage Holeman for a few minutes, at times pointing directly at him. It was unclear whether he did make physical contact, however.

Holeman said he did support Bill Clinton during his campaigns, but that now the country wants a “new perspective.” “I think the president’s trying hoodwink us, bamboozle us, put us back in the okie doke,” he said. “He had eight years to do what he was supposed to do. All the things he said that she’s gonna do, he had the same authority that he wants her to have. Now if one Clinton, the male Clinton can’t get it done, how is Ms. Clinton [going to].”

Several Clinton supporters who saw the exchange came up to Holeman after to -- shall we say delicately -- express their disapproval for his actions. More negativity, Holeman said. “Hillary Clinton has started the most negative campaign I have ever seen, other than what the Republicans can launch,” he said. “I think we need to come together on those issues.”

Drudge is highlighting this as "out of control Bill"

Lets see now..some jerk comes into a Clinton event, acts disruptive, interrupting, yelling, and generally making an ass out of himself. Then asks Bill to ask Hillary to "stop the name calling and bullying"?
Hard to say which is more amazing here..
the fact that this is typical of the Obama zealots..or that they are simply so lost in the clouds that they can not see that they are engaging in the same bullying tactics that they decry.
I can't wait for the MSM to jump on the bandwagon and cover this as not some obnoxious, typical Obama supporter, but another example of Bill becoming unhinged and how he is hurting the campaign.
If this were a movie, I'd walk out..this is just too sad.

to describe this guy as a "typical Obama supporter"? He's one guy out of however many millions who have already cast votes for Obama.

Granted this guy is an obnoxious asshole. Every campaign attracts some supporters who are assholes. It's a bit of stretch to tar the majority of a candidate's supporters with the actions of a few.

Last time it was the "Deaniacs" who were accused of being cult zombies. Remember that? And in 2000 there were the Naderites....

the guy on and wishing he had done more. Hundreds of messages where this is posted wishing the guy had escalated it even more;

"This guy is a hero. The brown shirted Hillbots couldn't even shut him up! I love it!"

Yeah...he is a hero for attacking Bill Clinton at a rally. What's the matter with you people?

Obama people get completely out of control when you don't say/do what they want you to do. The comments get very ugly. And I must agree that it is cult-like behavior. Deaniacs were never this bad, at least not any of them that I encountered.

Anyone else freaked out about how the followers of the Prophet Obama have been transformed into a bunch of frothing at the mouth Clinton haters on par with Michelle Malkin and Ann Coulter?

People who probably got involved in politics because they liked the job President Clinton did and didn't like the way the MSM treated him are now using decades old right wing attacks to smear the Clintons with.

The only "change" I have ever seen the Prophet Obama accomplish was to change formerly rational people who used to admire the Clintons into a bunch of irrational lunatics.

Strange.

“I think the president’s trying hoodwink us, bamboozle us, put us back in the okie doke,”

as Obama quotes Spike Lee's fictional speeches by Malcolm X

Oh, I say and I say it again, ya been had! Ya been took! Ya been hoodwinked! Bamboozled!
Led astray! Run amok! This is what He does....

Yup. Bamboozled.

They weren't, BAC. The majority were enthusiastic but you never saw any of the hostility that you see when someone criticizes Obama.

And the closest Dean came to manipulating or leveraging it was the Scream!

I always felt I was working for the cause that Dean was espousing. I never felt I was working for Dean personally.

"Big Head DC has discovered alarming similarities between a speech made by Sen. Barack Obama on February 16 while campaigning for president in Wisconsin and an October 2006 speech made by Deval Patrick, the current Democratic governor of Massachusetts. The coincidences would seem to indicate that Obama copied several lines and linguistic speech patterns from Patrick’s “Just Words” speech for Obama’s own “Words Matter” speech. Indeed, words do matter. And they matter even more when they are one’s own words".

The two speeches can be compared, in all their eerie detail, via YouTube: Youtube links at story link.

At least it wasn't Neil Kinnock.

Is there a transcript? I don't think I can live through transcribing a YouTube...

"Here's Patrick at a rally for his gubernatorial campaign on Oct. 15, 2006, during the final stretch of his successful campaign against then-Massachusetts Lt. Gov. Kerry Healey (R):

“But her dismissive point, and I hear it a lot from her staff, is that all I have to offer is words — just words. ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, [applause and cheers] that all men are created equal.’ [Sustained applause and cheers.] Just words – just words! ‘We have nothing to fear but fear itself.’ Just words! ‘Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.’ Just words! ‘I have a dream.’ Just words!”

Here’s Obama on Saturday night at the Democratic Party of Wisconsin’s Founders Day Gala in Milwaukee:

“Don’t tell me words don’t matter! ‘I have a dream.’ Just words. ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.’ Just words! [Applause.] ‘We have nothing to fear but fear itself.’ Just words — just speeches!”

An Obama official said: “They're friends who share similar views and talk and trade good lines all the time.”

Obama apparently ad-libbed the remark, which was not in his text.

The Massachusetts governor said in a statement: “Sen. Obama and I are longtime friends and allies. We often share ideas about politics, policy and language. The argument in question, on the value of words in the public square, is one about which he and I have spoken frequently before. Given the recent attacks from Sen. Clinton, I applaud him responding in just the way he did.”

The Boston Globe reported last year that Obama had echoed the “just words” comments in a New Republic article, and noted “symbiotic friendship between Obama and Patrick.”

... except for it being Obama-specific. The heckler there interrupted Clinton with phrases about 9/11 conspiracy theories, which forced Clinton to address that topic instead of his opening remarks.

Anyone want to put money down on whether this is an organized effort to keep Bill Clinton at his weakest rhetorical point -- on the defense? If he can't use his charm powers, then the meme of his legacy being a weak one gets stronger.

And the verbal jujitsu is interesting -- from the man most likely to be accused of wearing political whiteface, having his minions accuse the man who was once proclaimed as being the first black president of wearing rhetorical blackface -- and the effect is to disrupt Clinton's intimate link with the audience.

He can't say "I feel your pain" once he shows his protectiveness and anger on behalf of his own family. That's not Clinton's brand identity.

Eric Lott, LOVE AND THEFT.

I think we all need to read up on minstrelsy, if we're going to survive the meme storms of this campaign.

You know what (imho) is wrong with this picture today—and here i'm not talking specifically about Clinton, could be anybody, even GrandPa Simpson McCane—it's that you just can't punch the piece of sh*t in the face, dammit, you can't even spit on him/her (lawsuits, the Press, you know).
i'll make an exception though: I suppose Obama would get away with it, bring him votes too.
On second thoughts, McCane could too, probably... It's all the Clinton' fault!
