It is amazing to already witness the unraveling of the democrat party. Usually a party waits until after the election to dust itself off and chart its new direction.
However, with the month by month downward spiral of bad economic news with the election just months away, the democrats are already warring over its future. Nothing made this clearer than Bill Clinton himself and his DLC wing of the democrat party.
DNC vs. DLC. Many of the leaders of the democrat party have realized they can only go so far left before going down the socialist cliff with no hope of scaling their way back up. Corey Booker, Deval Patrick, Ed Rendell, Harold Ford, and now Bill Clinton himself have defended Baine Capital and Romney's sterling business credentials. This is inter-party apostasy.
The democrat party finds itself trying to save itself and win a presidential election at the same time. It can't do both. The Clinton DLC wing sees no future with an Obamacrat party. With Clinton nipping at his heels Obama finds he has few friends to defend him. The man is basically friendless. He doesn't go to bat for hardly anyone down the line of the ticket. He is down to having to rely on his own campaign manager, Axelrod, to make his speeches and talking points.
The fawning Obama Stasi stenographers sit slack-jawed with mouths agape as one democrat after another refuses to climb aboard the ObamaSpiel. Chris Matthews was in a state of apoplexy after Clinton praised Baine.
The final point is Obama's lack of friends and why an unknown newbie politician like him is so vulnerable. Obama's political base is his progressive friends and the media. It is based on a mere wisp of populist hope and change. It is a political ponzi scheme that can only be sustained by fresh-whipped frenzies, empty promises, and illegal voters. It isn't, and never has been. grounded with political friendships and loyalty to party.
Unlike Johnson or Humphrey or Nixon, Obama has never helped anyone attain power. Obama has no roots in his own party. Like his Black friends say, "He was never there for the struggle," and that applies more to the heavy democrat party lifting than the civil rights movement.
I believe when Obama is swept from power there will be more tell-all books than for any other presidency. No one owes the guy anything. And with a democrat party in sore need of re-imaging; it will be done at Obama's expense. Never will the once mighty have fallen so low. His own democrats will be throwing shoes at his official White House portrait when it is unveiled by President Romney.
Those in Congress know that if they support this President, they will most likely lose their jobs. That’s one reason you don’t hear from them much concerning the election.
Only Nixon was ever more alone in the Oval Office than this Current Occupant. And it all began for Nixon with leaving out some important information he should have shared with the public much, much earlier on.
The Won has failed to share all kinds of information with the nation, his party, and even his close confidants in his immediate circle. A loose cannon that has broken free of its restraints, and now has swung around to point at some of its own stores of powder and shot, with the fuse burning.
If the curse was to be living in interesting times, then these must be very interesting times. For we are surely more cursed than at any period in recent memory.
The avalanche has already started. The best we may hope for is to not be in its direct path.
Obama doesn't really get traction until Ted Kennedy decides to endorse him and puts the whole "Kennedy wing" power behind him. Suddenly, Obama becomes some Kennedy-like "messiah" to the media and Hillary becomes old news.
The Clintons, always seeking power, settle for Secretary of State but have been laying in wait for their chance to push Obama out of the way and they now see their opportunity. Many of the Obama critics from the Democrat Party (though not all) have been Clinton cronies.
But you make a really good point that Obama has few friends. Very few people seem close or loyal to Obama the way Clinton has had loyalists.
I guess the true test of a messiah doesn't come until after the crucifixion. Somehow, I'm guessing Obama doesn't "rise again".
Bet the DNC still doesn’t get it,credentials count.
What is really the untold story (by the media) is that Hitlery got MORE VOTES in the primary season than Obamugabe.
She, by all rights, should be the President. (She would have kicked McInsane’s ass.)
Very good analogy..
And what’s really amusing, is that the so-called “Birther” argument was started by Hillary’s campaign.
I’m sure she and Bill are laughing at the Ear Leader behind his back. . . .
Very good analogy..
I keep thinking about the media convenient amnesia. They pushed the Dem mantra about Bush’s 4.5% unemployment rate being the worst since the 40’s.
That is a very insightful comment. You can think of politics -- at least Lyndon Johnson's sort of politics -- as anthropologists think of chiefdoms.
The chief ties followers to himself by redistributing wealth and positions. The big man's ability to bestow rewards on his followers makes them loyal to him.
A newcomer, who benefits from the efforts of others but doesn't give back is bound to have less support than an experienced hand who plays the game well.
He has friends. Ayers, Dorn, Wright, you know the cast. These people have been on the outside looking in for years. They are so radical that mainstream democrats wouldn’t allow them to publicly come out and play.
Less than 20 years after bombing the United States, Ayers and Dorn took in a young communist/Marxist from Hawaii and began grooming him for the presidency.
“He has friends. Ayers, Dorn, Wright,”
Yes, he has his progressive friends. But they have more mainstream media influence than party power. They are part of what I call Obama’s Ponzi Pyramid.
Since he doesn’t have a firm party base earned by toiling for years in the party structure, he has to constantly rabble-rouse the radical left and ethnic/identity groups to recruit new ‘believers.’ It is kind of a Facebook campaign - a mile wide but an inch deep. Kind of ironic - for a man so friendless and without a country to call his own.
America is not a socialist country. His Ponzi-Facebook campaign will crumble like all Ponzi schemes eventually do.
His gay church buds were eliminated with bullets to the back of the head, and his personal financial benefactor is in prison and not talking - lest he become like the gay church buds.
“Obama has no roots in his own party. Like his Black friends say, “He was never there for the struggle,” and that applies more to the heavy democrat party lifting than the civil rights movement.”
Need more evidence?...
HOORAY Glenn Beck!
What does Obama have by way of accomplishments? A health care bill pushed through by bribery despite the opposition of the majority of the population, and the assassination of a foreign enemy (who would have been more valuable if brought back alive for questioning).
