CNN: Dems Have Been Privately Uttering 'Scathing' Criticisms of President Obama For Some Time
Newsbusters ^ | May 25, 2014 | By Tom Blumer

Posted on 05/25/2014 11:05:57 PM PDT by kingattax

At the Weekly Standard this morning, Daniel Halper noted a CNN panel discussion wherein the network's John King and guest Maggie Haberman of the Politico discussed how furious many Democrats are with President Barack Obama's leadership, especially in connection with the Veterans administration scandal.

The broadcast also reveals that the Beltway press corps has been aware of Democrats' misgivings about Obama's leadership for some time. We sure haven't heard much about it, have we?

This is noteworthy because the press eagerly broadcasts evidence of disagreements among Republicans and conservatives, and rarely does so when there is disunity on the left. The odds that we'll see much more of what aired this morning on CNN are therefore quite low.

I've been publically uttering ‘scathing’ criticisms of Mr. Obama for seven years myself.

I take that back; to broad/general.

Some care, too but many will gladly support inept leaders.

It seems the Dems will lose the Senate AND not recapture the House so out come the long knives!

The only complaints I have heard from doms is Obama is not moving fast enough assuming complete dictatorial power.

Even when I think they would, I have yet to have run into any, except those who seek power and want plausible deniability if they might be held accountable for their political convictions.

Just seven? It started on the FR evening women’s group shortly after he gave the speach at the DNC convention. There were individuals who had his number then, when others of us barely knew his name.

The people of Illinois were putting together impeachment articles when he was a senator before he announced he was running for president So as far as I’m concerned its MSMs fault

This is a typical defensive response by a bunch of losers (the press). They ignore a problem of years, then say “I knew about it all along” when it becomes so obvious it can no longer be swept under the rug.

Why no reporting on Democrat schisms?

They don't like to air their own dirty laundry.

“They ignore a problem of years, then say “I knew about it all along” when it becomes so obvious it can no longer be swept under the rug.”

I believe Dems have been told the “pretend everything is hunky-dory” strategy won’t work for this upcoming mid-term, and this bit of theater is just to convince enough voters that the “Obama agenda” is different from the “Dem agenda”. While I’m sure many Dems despise Obama as the semi-literate token he is, he is their useful idiot and has pushed a far-left agenda for them without the criticism afforded to a white person (like Bush).

These Dems’ votes are on record, and their Republican opponents had best publicize them well if they don;t want this strategy to work. Remember, this is the same media that got the Kenyan Pirate re-elected in 2012 with an absolutely horrible economy after four years of pushing the Bolshevik message.

The US media has observed a a self-imposed moratorium on objectivity for many years.

By now the concept of ‘journalism’ here is laughable.

Is anyone surprised that Liberal dissatisfaction with “O” (no matter how ragged or lukewarm) is hardly reported?

This is the dangerous cocktail of ‘unaccountable leadership’ and ‘irresponsible, biased’ media.

But they will all vote 100% of the time for anything Obama wants after they are re-elected. Exhibit A: Joe Manchin (D-WV).

The Democrat Party.....created the Monster that Obama has become!!! Now....they are boxed in, and must support him!!! Not one Democrat has the guts to speak out and say....Obama must go immediately and we, the Democrat Party must force Obama to resign or impeach him!!!

The month of May has just about passed......and the five months that remain, until election day, November, 2011 are passing a lightening speed!!! Time is short for all you Democrat low life to get rid of ur problem...Obama!!! You won’t...... so November, 2014 is going bring political devastation across the board, for the Democrat Party!!! Fools!!!

Dems and MSM, but I repeat myself, will continue to cover for him anyway, because he is one of theirs.

They will, however, have to distance themselves from him and his policies going into the 2016 election cycle. They have a problem similar to what the Pubbies had in 2008: Obama-fatigue. At present, they just have to hang in for 3 more years.

Their 2016 nominee will have to run against Obama, as well as against the GOP nominee. The MSM are again trying to coronate Ms Inevitable, but that failed in 2008. The Dems will quite possibly find another alternative to Ms Inevitable.

This is probably being propagated by the CNN Klintoon faction of the Rat party to clear the decks for Hitlery to run in 2016.

Don't get me wrong though, Obama is an incompetent.

I hadn't heard of this one. Do you have a link? Any search with "impeach Obama" is swamped with zillions of hits.

If they have to sacrifice Obama on Benghazi, in order to get Hillary off the hook & in the WH they’ll do it. All that matters is continued power with the Rats.
