Scarborough: Dems Say Privately Obama Is Invisible, Not A Leader
RCP ^ | July 29, 2011 | RCP Video

Posted on 07/31/2011 6:08:12 AM PDT by MontaniSemperLiberi

Mika heard two days ago on Capitol Hill Democrats all saying the same thing. And that is, this president has been invisible, he is not a leader. They said this all behind closed doors. Democratic leaders, Democratic rank-and-file.

Obama over shot. He should have been Democrat's choice for VICE president. A critic. Not a leader.

The worm has turned. Perhaps even Bo the water dog will vote Republican. With the debt negotiations, the Republicans screwed the country but they got what they wanted, a lame duck Obama.

PS - This is a short clip from the larger "Obama is a Loser" Noonan discussion.

I believe they refer to it as “leading from behind”.

Isn’t that what they wanted?

A president that could read what they wrote for him?

A week or so ago there were rumors that the Capitol Hill leadership [both parties] were disgusted and frustrated about trying to negotiate with Obama, so they met in secret — sans Obama — to hash out a budget ceiling deal.

==

I still maintain that, if the economy remains this bad by early next year, Obama will be forced to not seek a 2nd term — by the Dems. [Shades of LBJ]

They know they can’t win if unemployment is still well over 8%, the recession is continuing, etc. Their only ‘blessing’ at present is that inflation/interest rates have stayed low and off the radar.

==

After seeing this thread, I am even more convinced that the Dems are trying to find a way to unseat Obama but retain the White House.

And that is, this president has been invisible, he is not a leader. They said this all behind closed doors. Democratic leaders, Democratic rank-and-file.

Yet, they, DEMS and LSM, all followed him and told the lemmings to follow him. And worst of all, lots of republican stayed home on election day because McCain was not conservative enough.

At risk of repeating myself, I’d rather have a republican-lite or a RINO in office over any democRAT.

Obama’s transparency has been obvious from the beginning to anyone who wished to look.

Whether or not one agreed with liberalism, the fact that this fellow was vapid, and not a quick thinker - or even just a thinker at all - was there for all to see.

For some reason, the “invisilble” leadership comments brought to mind John Kerry. If he had been elected, we’d have gone through this years earlier. And who would have been the man behind him pulling the strings. The same one that’s pulling Obama’s strings?

“Dems are trying to find a way to unseat Obama but retain the White House.”

Impeachment.

Tie him to Operation Fast And Furious and he’s gone. Or any of several other outrages.

His big idea to get the debt limit raised was to have people Tweet the Repubs. That was his big idea. Cyber bullying. Congrats Pres! You think the same way as the average 16-year-old cheerleader!

I deem it “following from the front”: looks like he’s in charge, but keeps looking back for direction from those behind him.

I think there are a lot of games going on.

One game is that the short term deal ($1T now, $1.5T when it runs out) is advantageous to those worried about primary challengers, Republican and Democrat. I think Obama overplayed his hand when he demanded $1.2T in taxes which would have weakened Republican incumbents but not Democrat incumbents. The compromise let’s them both get past their primaries before voting again.

If the national security council was aware of fast and furious, there won’t be a democrat left who could hold the white house.

It seems much more possible that they have saved the country. Better the debt ceiling not be raised than the insane spending bills that have been put forward.

I think Democratic voters want to protect SS and Medicare. I think Democratic politicians want to keep their favorite toy, non-defense discretionary spending.

The Democrats are complaining about Obama behind closed doors?

Then how come they stick together and give him everything he wants.

They are as bad as he is. Make no mistake about that.
Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have a good hold on Obama’s coat tails and will follow him over that cliff.

In the end I hope the good Obama does is like what Carter did - and gave us Reagan.

I hope Obama sucks so bad that we get a great conservative president, with big ideas to really put us on a new track.

Democrats want to keep all the spending they can, not so much because they care about the individual programs or people but because they need a constant pot of money to skim off the top.

30% of the highway trust fund is skimmed off the top before anyone even considers fixing a road or bridge.

“Isn’t that what they wanted?”

What’s baffling to me is how anyone could have believed that electing someone with ZERO executive experience to take on the most challenging CEO position on the planet could possibly have been a good idea. Using the Oval Office for OJT is a singularly bone-headed notion and now we’re all paying the price since Barry apparently isn’t a particularly quick study.

Calling Victoria Stillwell (’It’s Me or the Dog’ show) ......... BO needs the help more than Bo I suspect. Then again, Victoria is a lot prettier than BO so that would be a non-starter right from the get-go.

Even in HuffPo, retired producer for NBC Nightly News Sandy Goodman is screaming for a draft Hillary campaign. And you trashed her and bashed her for many a month. All day long.

Now suck it up, and work to improve the situation.

I’m a high school drop out and could do better than Obama, the hard part would be getting any of my ideas past congress.

Too many on both sides of the aisle desperately cling to job killing federal agencies like the EPA.

I don't see that happening. 0bama may decide not to run, but 0bama's message is the same for any democRat - More taxes, more spending, more government.

And no one will say it more eloquently than 0bama.

The only reason inflation rates have stayed “low” is because they no longer include energy or food. Go to a grocery store and tell me we have no food inflation. Hamburger now sells for more a pound that New York strip steaks did 3 years ago.

I agree with the tag of narcissist. I actually think he is pathological and with that we are going to see some really interesting behaviors in the coming months.

Narcissists fall apart when they are seen through. I honestly think Barry has NEVER been challenged. He's been pushed and pulled through every challenge. His grades s*cked, but he got pushed onto Columbia then Harvard...then CHOSEN to be the first black Pres. of the LR. Where were his grades? His papers? His LSAT #’s? They were all sub-par—and he was led through by handlers.

Same in the senate, State and U.S...and the election. The only thing he did well was read those trite speeches. He was NOT good at debate. Can you imagine him in a real debate with Rubio, Paul Ryan, Chris Christie, etc? He really didn't even do much better than McCain...people were just “in love”.

Well, good luck Sparky! You are being exposed. And your narcissistic traits are going to make life very difficult.

I predict a series of shocking meltdowns, recorded for all to see.

Reuters Pictures 3 months ago U.S. President Barack Obama (L) and first lady Michelle Obama read a book titled "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" to children during the annual Easter Egg Roll at the White House in Washington April 25, 2011. Daughters Sasha (2nd R) and Malia (R) are seen on the right as they listen on with their dog Bo.

Did anyone even listen to what he was saying during his campaign? Apparently not.

And now they are 'unexpectedly' surprised by the results???
