Obama’s campaign manager: Palin’s comments are “beyond the pale”

posted at 1:20 pm on October 14, 2008 by Allahpundit

The fact that he’s willing to show snippets of McCain’s ads in his own video can only mean The One thinks he’s gaining more than he’s losing from the Mac attacks. (Which may be true.) As such, the closer we get to the debate, the more I think Obama’s going to throw Maverick a curve by bringing up Ayers himself to try to put him on the defensive about “tone.” If there’s one thing the fightin’ nutroots loves more than a fight, it’s being congratulated on their virtue; Obama could kill both birds with one stone by landing the first punch and trumpeting how high-minded the left’s campaigning has been by comparison. Aside from the occasional George Wallace analogy, that is. Needless to say, the media would be in raptures.

I hope McCain’s prepping for that contingency. Although if I had to bet, I’d bet Schieffer brings it up himself early on. Team Maverick’s reply to Plouffe follows below.

Obama campaign manager David Plouffe released a video this morning accusing Governor Palin of making comments that were “beyond the pale.” The comments in question: “our opponent is someone who sees America as imperfect enough to pal around with terrorists who targeted their own country.”

The “terrorists” in question would be William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, the husband and wife team behind the Weather Underground, a group responsible for attacks against the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol. In 1995, Barack Obama launched his political career in the house of William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn. From 1996 through 2002, Barack Obama served on two charitable boards with William Ayers. And, per the New York Times, Barack Obama and William Ayers regularly traded emails and phone calls through 2005. Barack Obama recently explained that he had “assumed [Ayers] had been rehabilitated.” His campaign subsequently explained that Obama no longer considers Ayers to be rehabilitated. But before Barack Obama had what Joe Biden might call an epiphany about the true nature of William Ayers, Chicago Mayor Richard Daley explained the relationship this way: “They’re friends. So what?” And Obama’s own chief strategist, David Axelrod, described Ayers and Obama as “certainly friendly.”

This much is clear: Barack Obama and William Ayers were friends before that relationship became a political embarrassment for the Illinois Senator–Obama did pal around with a terrorist. According to his campaign, Barack Obama no longer believes Ayers has been rehabilitated. And William Ayers did target his own country. So what part of Governor’s Palin’s remarks are “beyond the pale.” Perhaps Mr. Plouffe does not like Governor Palin’s inference that Barack Obama palled around with Ayers because Barack Obama has a different view of America than most of us. Yet the Obama campaign has offered no alternate explanation–they have not conceded that the relationship was simply the result of a serious error in judgment.

The only thing “beyond the pale” here is the Obama campaign’s failure to explain how it is that Barack Obama carried on a decade long friendship with a man who sought to topple the U.S. government through violence. — Michael Goldfarb, McCain-Palin Spokesman

The debates are live… no tape delay. If McCain were to respond that he has defended his opponent’s honor, as can be seen on more than one video, while the Obama campaign has permitted their attendees to wear “Palin is a cunt” shirts without so much as a peep denouncing them might have some impact.

Can McCain show a video clip? One of Ayers speaking
at the Nov 2006 education conference in Caracas?

Then ask Obama just how his “I was eight years old” at the time applies?

Paul Murphy on October 14, 2008 at 1:25 PM

But, Barry said “He’s just a guy that lives in my neighborhood” which has already been proven a lie. What more can he say without exposing himself more the liar that he is?

They see nothing wrong with it. They don’t understand why people wouldn’t want their president-to-be associated with such people.

In a sane world this would be a Republican landslide. Even with Yosimite Sam. Pity reality is not so generous….

Still confident for a win, but certainly no landslide.

OH!! I have a story along this vein!!

One particular student here at ASU apparently took Obama’s suggestion to heart. He was going up and down the bus depot and harassing people waiting on the bus. He’d approach someone and ask “You voting for Obama?” and if they said no would shove himself down in their face – practically falling into the lap of some of the sitting people – and shout at the top of his lungs “OBAMA FOR PRESIDENT!!!”

He got down to two seats away from me and tried to do this to an older gentleman, who said no, and the guy began “OB…”

The guy reached out and smacked the kid over the head with his cane and yelled back in his face “BRUSH YOUR TEETH!!”

Plouffe says that Palin’s statement “Obama pals around with terrorists” is beyond the pale. Yet no one, not even Obama, disagrees with that statement.

Truth is now “beyond the pale” to liberals.

beyond the pale – Outside the bounds of morality, good behavior or judgment; unacceptable. The noun pale, from the Latin palum, meant “a stake for fences” or “a fence made from such stakes.” By extension it came to be used for an area confined by a fence and for any boundary, limit, or restriction, both of these meanings dating from the late 1300s. The pale referred to in the idiom is usually taken to mean the English Pale, the part of Ireland under English rule, and therefore, as perceived by its rulers, within the bounds of civilization.

Palin’s comments are “beyond the pale”

There are two hidden meanings in Plouffe’s statement.

“Pale” is an obvious reference to Gov. Palin’s race, and an attempt to portray whites as bigots and racists.

The “Pale” refers to the “Pale of Settlement,” those areas of Czarist Russia where Jews were allowed to live.

In his clever and subtle, but racist way, Plouffe attacks whites and jews as obama’s enemies and enemies of America.

I was thinking of voting for the guy, but I don’t like the racism and anti-semetism he’s injecting into the campaign.

Of course, this is the same guy spent a year and a half trying to nail Scooter Libby for contradicting a reporter in the Plame Name Game, as if reporters always tell the truth (cough! gag!), while he knew from the beginning that Richard Armitage had leaked Plame’s name.

Notice that David Plouffe merely states that McCain’s and Palin’s statements about Obama’s history and actions are low, slime, beyond the pale, etc., but never wrong. He’s sweating; a lot.

Push the Ayres button again. This time ask how Obama could’ve thought Ayres was rehabilitated, given his interview with Connie Chung.

Talk about the $100million that Ayres and Obama were given to use to fund Chicago public school education programs, and how this several year effort was a complete failure. Ask if we can settle for this level of performance (i.e., failure) in a President of the US.

Then ask where the money went; to public schools or other? Why? What was the original agreement and scope? Ask if we can afford this sort of conduct, that appears to be malfeasance, in the next President.

Remind people that Obama once proposed to spend some percentage of the federal budget to fight world poverty. Then remind people what this really means, and why Bono and Bob Geldof don’t use their money to fund this sort of project..

David Plouffe and associates are really sweating this sort of exposure; actually, they can’t afford it. Time to make them sweat even more.

I can’t wait for Palin to run for National office without the constrains of McCain’s campaign.
We need a national leader who has the courage to cut through all the PC. I think she has the strength to expose and push back on all these attempts to silence free speech (when it doesnt conform to the left’s worldview). The American people will no doubt respond when they hear someone articulating their beliefs and calling things for what they are. So many people have been cawed into silence and even made feel guilty for espousing beliefs, which they have always known to be right.
Using “tolerance”, “diversity” and moral relativity as their mind and speech control tools, the left and the MSM have created an alternate reality and demanded that we all conform to it. But that alternate reality is a house built on sand, and if some like Palin can validate the actual reality in peoples mind, the left will be in deep trouble.

He will win. All that matters.

Jiangxi, and further – I’ll punish you eternally.

Sounds serious, Daddy. Better repent.

Hello E. Missed you lately. Just playing Dem. games.

JiangxiDad on October 14, 2008 at 3:06 PM

JiangxiDad, thank you. I have relatives/guests from Europe, totally in the bag crotch for Obama, here for a month. I’m going nuts, beyond the normal nuttiness, as this is my favorite time of the season, politically.

Am I glad you’re just “playing”! I’d have been more disappointed than losing Christopher Buckley.

The fact that he’s willing to show snippets of McCain’s ads in his own video can only mean The One thinks he’s gaining more than he’s losing from the Mac attacks. (Which may be true.)

Or it could mean they expect only their most fervent supporters to watch something called a “strategy update.”

It takes a British columnist to write about this, and she is absolutely right on. She nails our MSM and all of Obama’s associations like none of our writers, w/the exception of the WSJ perhaps. Please take the time and read it. It is delicious…

You know, if I knew I was going to be on youtube, lying for the One, I wouldn’t be dressed like a crack-head.

HornetSting on October 14, 2008 at 2:50 PM

I suppose one of my blessings is not having the faintest idea what a crack head looks like.

Obama’s the sleaze factory, Palin’s just pointing at it.
