He's already denigrated everybody else who's called him on this scam of a presidency...
A wild debate is reportedly now raging-on between various WH advisors, the DNC, and congressional Democrats as to how best to deal with their current predicament... a hostile electorate that simply can't wait to dash into that voting booth and make them redundant.
The New York Times today:
President Obamas political advisers, looking for ways to help Democrats and alter the course of the midterm elections in the final weeks, are considering a range of ideas, including national advertisements, to cast the Republican Party as all but taken over by Tea Party extremists, people involved in the discussion said.
White House and Congressional Democratic strategists are trying to energize dispirited Democratic voters over the coming six weeks, in hopes of limiting the partys losses and keeping control of the House and Senate. The strategists see openings to exploit after a string of Tea Party successes split Republicans in a number of states, culminating last week with developments that scrambled Senate races in Delaware and Alaska.
We need to get out the message that its now really dangerous to re-empower the Republican Party, said one Democratic strategist who has spoken with White House advisers but requested anonymity to discuss private strategy talks.
Democrats are divided. The partys House and Senate campaign committees are resistant, not wanting to do anything that smacks of nationalizing the midterm elections when high unemployment and the drop in Mr. Obamas popularity have made the climate so hostile to Democrats. Endangered Congressional candidates want any available money to go to their localized campaigns.
But Neil Gardiner from London's Telegraph says not only is such an idea unlikely to work... it "smacks of desperation":
"This is the clearest sign yet that the Obama White House fears the tremendous energy the Tea Party movement has brought to this Novembers Congressional race. What the Obama administration once dismissed as an inconsequential, rag tag organisation has evolved into a full scale political revolution that threatens to storm Capitol Hill six weeks from now. But if it thinks it can quell the rebellion by painting the Tea Party as a bunch of extremists it is sadly mistaken.
Poll after poll shows that the Tea Partys anger over the rise of Big Government, the mounting budget deficit, excessive government spending, and spiraling entitlement programs are now shared by a clear majority of the American people. If the Obama team believes it will make political capital out of slandering the views of the Tea Party it is hugely misreading the general mood of the country. The grassroots organisations stunning success is symbolic of a deep-seated rejection across the United States of a transformational president who is making America poorer, weaker, more indebted and significantly less free.
The White Houses planned assault is yet another example of an elitist presidency that is spectacularly out of touch with the American electorate, and increasingly digging its own political grave. Unfortunately for President Obama, it is his own policies, rather than the ideals of the Tea Party, which the American public increasingly view as extreme."
Maybe someone needs to tell President Obama that the patriotic grass-roots movement he slanders -at his own peril- is favored by over half the US electorate...
On 2nd thought, never mind... he'll be seeing it spelled out in the only way he understands... just 43 days today.

Obama needs to be impeached, tried for treason and brought to justice.
Good idea !
It’s “really dangerous to re-impower the Republicans”.
For Obama, maybe, but not for us. Hopefully, we’ll have a bunch of investigations into thei corrupt bunch.
Yeah, the Tea-party have all the commitment and energy.
But the Democrats have a new logo. How can we beat that?
OK, so we won’t re-impower “republicans” per se,
just strong Constitutionalist conservatives.
To Mr. Skittles: Well do you feel lucky? Well do you punk?
These narcissists are like moth to the flame, man... they never know when to quit
Ask the Germans about that...
First, they mock you
Then they ridicule you
Then they fight you...
Then YOU WIN
First one’s “ignore you”
remember the ad campaign after 9/11 which presented an endless array of ethinicities/orientations/colors, shapes and sizes, etc of individuals proclaiming ‘I am American’?
How about a similiar campign in which Americans of every description proclaim ‘I am racist’ and then explaining that they are evidently so because they oppose socialized health care, are a skyrocketing national debt, or oppose a muslim shrine built on an American grave yard, or recognize the crucial importance of the traditional nuclear family, or encourage rather than deny the right to free speech without PC censors, or agree with our meritocratic foundations, or have read and undertsand the Constitution and Declaration, or recognize that our strength is not our ‘diversity’ (differences) but rather that so many differnet flavors of humanity universally embrace the SAME desire for freedom and true fairness and goodness, etc etc etc.
I am a racist. Because a racist is anyone winning an argument with a liberal. Or ‘progressive’. Progressive- when you’re on the highway to hell, who wants to make ‘progress’?
Plus, the new Democrat logo makes such a great dart board.
Man, those guys over on the Left are good.
Exchange between Sean Connery & Wesley Snipes in “Rising Sun”:
Snipes: “Can I quote you on that, sir?
- What’ll they think of next?
Connery: - Next?
Next they’ll call you a racist.
Look. I’ve told you.
As a great American once said; “Bring it On”.
Although we didn’t realize it at the time, we were looking right at Obama at the 9/12 Rally in DC. Probably 20 feet away! We had left the Washington Monument about 1/2 hour early and were standing at an intersection when about 20 black SUVs hustled by into a gated/guarded “area”. The Tea Party March had started and was about 1/2 way down the block. Well, having asked a DC cop a few minutes later, that was Obama’s motorcade on his way to play basketball. So he probably looked right at the beginnings of the Tea Party March. Wish I’d have known, but you hate to give the one finger salute to 20 black SUVs ... shoot it might have been a Republican Motorcade! :-) duh
