Democrats turning on Obama in (semi) private
American Thinker ^ | May 25, 2014 | Thomas Lifson

Posted on 05/25/2014 2:38:56 PM PDT by kingattax

Wow, it’s finally happening. Democrats are catching on and turning on President Obama, at the moment off-the-record, but that won’t last for long if another midterm “shellacking” takes place in early November. Daniel Halper reports in The Weekly Standard.

CNN's John King reports that Democrats are privately calling President Obama "detached," "flat footed," and "incompetent."

If King is hearing about it, then it isn’t completely private. Maybe “off the record” and “not for attribution,” but not private when a journalist gets wind of it.

They’re not turning on Obama.

The first step to fixing something is being honest with one’s self.

This is going to get very tricky for Democrats, since their black voter base, which accounts for roughly a quarter of their national vote, remains loyal to Obama.

So black voters remain loyal to their black president despite overwhelming evidence of incompetence, coupled with unprecedented corruption. But, Republicans are the racists.

They (other Democrats) did not leave Obama.

Obama left them. Choking and stumbling in the dust.

“Kicked to the curb” comes to mind.

Or, perhaps this is a ploy to distance Democrats from the mess Obama has created. They have to do it.

I’vee been saying for the last several years that Obama is going to go down hard, and that it will be the Democrats that finally take him down, not the Republicans

IMO if The Bamster ran again he would get at least 95% of the black vote.

I don’t buy this story.

The Democrats have extraordinary Party discipline.

They NEVER turn on one of their own.

They have more than discipline, actually.

They also have wide scale agreement on Party principles and Party goals.

The democrats can’t agree on how fast to declare martial law, suspend all future elections and start building ovens. They all know they’re nazis, they just cant get that marching in step thingy down.

Pure theater to save them in the mid-terms; saw it two years ago when they did the same thing. No resounding support for the token Muslim fron any Dems except those in the safest of ditricts...

Absolutely.

The media and the democrats keep whining that the TEA Party is trying to drag the GOP to the right, but the Left is now chock full of the most rabid, left wing loonies this country has ever seen.

When Pelosi "drained the swamp" the moderate dems were gone and all that is left are the most vile bottom-dwellers and parasites that should never see the light of day

Don’t you think those demonic-rats are just looking to protect their own butts?

I mean, the Marxist hasn’t given them much, so no loyalty to him is owed and they’re all power hungry regardless.

To each his own. They love D.C. and power, first and foremost.

Corrupt b#stards all.

Our first affirmative action president with his affirmative action wife....that's how she got into Princeton
+What do you expect? Delusional white liberal have been kissing their butts for years and telling us how brilliant they are mostly because Obama was black, young and hip. They could care lesds that Onama had zero executive and managerial experience. That he a zero résumé. All that mattered was that Omama was a good speaker    (I thought he was an awful speaker)

Not true, it's just been a really long time since they have.

They turned on Carter, and fractured themselves for quite a long time, much like the right has in the past decade.

It took a great man in the person of Ronald Reagan to do that, and if we're fortunate, it will happen again. It happened a bit after 9/11 as well, but they figured out how to roll W like a bowling ball pretty quickly.

Like a poster said earlier, it's to the point where the rest of the dems will have to distance themselves from him even though THEY WERE ALL COMPLICIT IN WHAT HE DID.

It will be up to those of us on the right to remind everyone that it wasn't just the bamster who made such a mess of things. It's their entire philosophy that made the mess.

I agree with your take.
The history is written on this, has been since 2008.
When he leaves office they’ll start building his monument in DC.

Oh please. No one is turning on ODimwit. And even if they do, they will STILL vote Dim. They will never, ever vote Conservative or fail to vote for those fools.

Hillary is their sacred cow now. In order to drag her across the 2016 goal line, in this dark atmosphere made by Obama, these Democrats stratigize, perhaps, that they need to cut Barakus loose.

This also gives Hillary a little something of his to correct and therefore run on. After all, Obama already took her every Alinsky styled hope and turned it into law, leaving her impotent, overweight, bespeckled in thick lens glasses.

Either Lifson is a resident of or has spent time in Colorado because to believe any substantial numbers of Democrats will turn on Obamalamadingdong, he’s smoking that wacky tobaccy.What a bunch of bovine excrement.

They are loyal to him even though he doesn’t have any proof of even being black in the first place.

Don’t be so sure on Hillary....

Numbnuts Kerry is planning on running again, and one thing that his wife won’t tolerate is either Bill or Hillary.

Really? I hadn’t heard of, I-Served-In-Viet Nam, wanting to run again. That could make a decent primary fight for Do Nothing Hillary, SOS, up against Do Everything but Do It Wrong Kerry, SOS.

Obviously, the Obama machine would prefer to support Kerry, over Hillary, or goofy Biden, figurehead VP, they keep in the closet 24/7.

Too Little, Too Late. Mr. Obama—the Magic Negro has poisoned the Democratic Party. They will feel the wrath of the American People in November. Soon all they will have is the inner city population and Hollywood. Obama has put them back to the 1920s.

You have to ask the simple question....Why would Kerry give up his safe seat in the senate, to take on Sec State?

His previous loss to Bush was 10 years ago and he figures that he can knock out Hillary in the primary because of her sordid past, dismal performance as Sec State (Benghazi) etce, the Swift Boat Vets are now old news, and his wife still covets it.

Nice point. Dems are increasingly uninterested in Hillary, laugh outright at Biden, and are mellow on Pocahantas, with the nonexistent resume.

Kerry has equalized his resume with that of Hillary, has shown much more chops on the big issues, up against her tread-water tenure at State. Thx..
