This Gamesmanship Seating Plan: is to “intermingle” the seating of the Republicans and Democrats, so not one of his opposition is sitting next to another of his opposition.
The foundation of America’s government was set up to be “Checks & Balances”, Separation of Powers ….. so this supposedly easily dismissed plan, can and should be seen as an attempt at not just to stifle dissent. It’s not unobtrusive; it’ll be mentioned, but dismissed as unimportant; instead, it’s an additional attempt at basic transformation of the foundation of our government.
The NYT spins it a little more, but it is to insure all the ideological disparities are not so apparent; they hope to stifle any dissent and make it look as if all is well in D.C. and there’s a new spirit of cooperation. Democrats are hoping, but there’s not.
It’s to be before the Budget is submitted, when All Hell Is To Break Lose inside the beltline!
Like one of America’s well-attended churches, the SOTU is all to be choreographed, and so slick it seems like Democrats are back in control with everybody loving each other!
SEEN AS A CENTRIST: The connected game, is all predicated upon the fact that he has a chance to win his re-election bid. As Clinton advised, Obama needs to run to the center of the political spectrum.
Being seen as a Centrist, means he’s willing to take a chance of alienating his base – the radical leftists …..
Van Jones is calling it his “book tour”, (His book, as stated in AIM [Accuracy In Media — The Green Collar Economy, is, as many books, written mostly by someone else – it (ONLY INCLUDES THE NAME OF VAN JONES) his name as the author appears, on the cover, but it appears that the book was largely written by Ariane Conrad).
Instead, to counter that, “obvious misconception”, Obama has sent one of his main ‘stalking horses’, Van Jones, out amongst his base – on a speaking tour — visiting all of America’s inner cities, leftist strongholds and major and universities – Eugene, Or., Berkeley, California, Madison, Wisc., Boulder, Co. ……
The “book tour”, is a sham; it serves a different purpose – to shore up the understanding amongst his base …. explaining to them just WHY OBAMA SEEMS TO BE A CENTRIST. It’s there that Obama’s fickle base is ….. the organizations which could bolt and begin to attack him and he is trying desperately to seem calm while …. “under fire” …. he doesn’t want “friendly fire” too!
