Ex-Clinton Strategist: Obama Needs ‘Similar’ Oklahoma City Bombing Event to ‘Reconnect’ With Voters

9/11 and the Patriot Act test run Clinton StyleStephen C. Webster writes on RAW Story:

Talk about a bad analogy: Appearing on television recently, former Hillary Clinton campaign adviser and current public relations executive Mark Penn suggested that President Obama needs a moment “similar” to the tragic terrorist attack on the Oklahoma City federal building, in order to “reconnect” with voters.

He didn’t even seem to flinch in making the comment.

Penn is currently president and CEO of Burson-Marsteller, a multi-national public relations firm. He also served in 2008 as chief strategist for then-Senator Hillary Clinton’s run for the White House. Before that, Penn advised former British Prime Minister Tony Blair in his third run for the UK leadership post, and served clients such as AT&T, Texaco, Ford, Merck, Verizon, BP, McDonald’s and Microsoft.

    if people stop falling for stuff like that maybe political strategists will stop saying it.
    but the simple fact is most people are so cowardly and stupid that things like that work like a charm every time.

    This is why the Democrats are better than the Republicans. The Democrats only need about 170 people to die to drum up support, Republicans need around 3000.

    I know the Federal Government has plenty of in house talent to engineer an ‘event,’ but I hope this administration remembers the many struggling independent contractors in need of work. And if they want to be taken seriously they better stay on message and make it an eco-friendly green ‘event.’

    These other two jerks didn’t even flinch when he said it either. I remember reading Rahm Emanuel saying “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste”. That sent a chill up my spine when I read it. Sociopathic people really suck. Wish there were some sort of test for psycho’s, a simple test like an IQ test. “No sir I’m sorry you scored well below our lowest expectations of humanity. You cannot be allowed to hold any position of authority or responsibility. On the bright side we have an opening in a very nice slaughter house that comes with many holidays and a generous benefits package.”
