OBAMA’S GARDEN PARTY By Coach Dave Daubenmire

I went to a garden party to reminisce with my old friends
A chance to share old memories and play our songs again.
When I got to the garden party, they all knew my name
No one recognized me, I didn’t look the same

People came from miles around, everyone was there
Yoko brought her walrus, there was magic in the air…
If you gotta play at garden parties, I wish you a lotta luck
But if memories were all I sang, I’d rather drive a truck
. Rick Nelson 1972

I probably will never qualify as a political pundit. You know what I mean, the cadre of nobodies who parade as “experts” on the “news” programs on TV who are really nothing more than hand-picked political hacks. They are not experts, they are sheep-herders. They are hired to shape public opinion and to influence what was once a free-thinking American populace.

Today, Americans are nothing but sheep, waiting to be herded, and eventually to be sheared. That is the goal of the “experts.” They decide, you report. How else could we possibly have McCain and Obama?

My positions are clear. I will not vote for a political party. I vote for a candidate. I’m in no one’s pocket. Neither man gets my vote.

Having said that, allow me to make a prediction. I told you last November that Hillary couldn’t win and people laughed. Two years ago I warned Dr. Dobson to start a new political party or Christians would be left holding the bag. I cautioned that conservativism was “Counterfeit Salt,” and that a real Republican can’t win. I laid the blame at the feet of America’s pulpits.

I’ve missed a few…but my track record is pretty good. The “fair and balanced” news media has no place for a truth-teller like me, so don’t be looking for me on any “Fox All Star” team any time soon. But that doesn’t change the facts. Here is the real story, at least from where I sit in “flyover” country.

Obama lost the election on the first night of the Democratic Convention. Let me be clear. McCain didn’t win it, Obama lost it. The media will do all they can with their “expert” pollsters, and CNN and NBC and the rest will do their best to put powder on the pig, but the race is over for Obama. It was the Garden Party that did him in.

I know this flies in the face of inside-the-beltway experts, but it is crystal clear out here in cornfield country. The thing that has done him in is the political monogamy. The “experts” are married to the same worldview. They are an incestuous lot, spending all of their time sharing their monogamous ideas with other “experts.” It is the greatest deception that we all face…the thought that you are right because you have found someone who agrees with you. The radical Democrats in control of their party actually think mainstream Americans agree with them. Why? Because all they ever do is talk to other “experts” who share the same opinion. They are more faithful to their worldview than they are to their spouse.

That, in a nutshell, is what has cost Obama this election.

Let me stop right here. The Republicrats are no better but at least their ideas tend to fall in the mainstream of American values. Not all of them. But at least their core values can be found in any barber shop in rural America. When it is all said and done, most Americans trust their instincts. That is why the Obama presidency is dead on arrival, no matter how much the media experts tell you he is winning.

The Democratic National Convention has worked very hard to put on a good show. There was a day when the Conventions were about smoke-filled rooms, and back room deals, where a candidate was actually selected. Today the conventions are nothing more than an Amway Convention where the party leadership creates an image which all of the media sycophants are supposed to enhance.

Democrats think they are popular and that most of America supports the party of FDR. But it is an illusion. There is still a great deal of party loyalty, especially among blacks and union workers, but the heartbeat of America is not in rhythm with what the political gurus believe. The gurus love Democratic ideas and candidates so they think that all of America agrees with them. Because the pundits share like views they have convinced one another that they are correct.

That is why I love my local barber shop. That is where you really feel the pulse of Joe Sixpack America. Joe Sixpack is tired of Bush and is open to change, but in his heart he’s looking for Ronald Reagan, not Ronald McDonald.


Obama was on to something with his innocuous theme of “change.” It helped him defeat Hillary and made him a media darling. But, to paraphrase Obama, change is “words, just words.” The proof is in the pudding. And on Monday night America discovered that there is a “fly in the ointment.”

McCain is going to win. He’ll do it without his base. McCain is a Democrat who happens to be in the Republican Party. Many Democrats are happy to vote for him. They know he is not a real Republican. Remember, Joe Biden supports John McCain.

But here is why Qbama is toast. He ran on change, inspired change, had folks hoping for change. And then he went to a Garden Party in Denver

It was his “friends” that did him in.

Died-in-the-wool Democrats love Democrats. They can’t wait to go to the party and “reminisce” with their old friends about the good ole days of Democratic Party power. Their Denver party featured the same, tired, big-government icons. All of their heroes were there: Kennedy, Carter, Clinton, Kerry. The media pundits were former Democrat hacks Begala, Carville, and Brazile. The party insiders thought they were showing their power. Cornfield America began throwing bricks at their TV. You see….their memories were jogged.

They remembered:

The malaise of the Carter years and 20% interest rates
The ungodly, socialist morals of the Clintons and Monica’s blue dress.
The degeneracy of Teddy Kennedy and Mary Jo Kopechne.
The phoniness of John Kerry and the Swift Boat veterans

It was not a pretty picture. Most Americans want change but this was not what they had in mind. An Obama victory would signal the return of:

E. T. look-alike Carville and his squinty eyes spinning the facts.
Paul Begala and his disingenuous smile, and Eddie Haskel-like lying.
Brazile and her race-tainted views.

I wonder if someone is sabotaging the Obama campaign?

Obama will not recover. Americans are still too smart. Democrats will elect McCain with the aid of blind Republicans. They know that Obama is an empty suit. Maverick John McCain gives them an out because, after all, he’s not really a Republican.

People came from miles around, everyone was there
Yoko brought her walrus, there was magic in the air…
If you gotta play at garden parties, I wish you a lotta luck
But if memories were all I sang, I’d rather drive a truck.

Again, McCain will win and Obama is toast. I hear the good ole boys in the heartland firing up their trucks.

But all is not lost for the party of FDR. Either way, we get a Democratic president.

Played them all the old songs, thought that’s why they came
No one heard the music, we didn’t look the same.
But it’s all right now, I learned my lesson well
You see, you can’t please everyone, so you got to please yourself.
