Skip to comments.'I've Had Enough:' When Democrats Quit on Obama
Posted on 06/09/2014 8:13:34 AM PDT by don-o
The email hit my in-box at 9:41 p.m. last Wednesday. From one of the most powerful Democrats in Washington, a close adviser to the White House, the missive amounted to an electronic eye roll. "Even I have had enough."
Another Democrat had quit on President Obama.
The tipping point for this person was the Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl casenot the soldier-for-Taliban swap itself as much as how the White House mishandled its obligation to communicate effectively and honestly to Congress and the public. More than that, Obama's team had failed once again to acknowledge its mistakes, preferring to cast blame and seek cover behind talking points.
"DC is hard, and depressing," the Democrat wrote. "I still believe good comes from government (e.g. 8 million in ACA). But that Politico story is a cautionary one: good reminder that you can't go so in the bunker [and] no longer identify legitimate criticism." That day, Politico had posted a story channeling the White House communications team's response to the Bergdahl backlash. Share This Story
White House aides were aware Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl had been tagged a deserter, and that they would be grilled over not keeping Congress in the loop. But they figured people would be most outraged over the national security implications.
The White House has been surprised by how much attention has remained on the questions about Bergdahl, from the circumstances of his disappearance to the wild beard his father grew while he was being held that's even led to Bergdahl's hometown canceling a celebration. All this, Obama aides say, is in their minds a proxy for the hatred toward the president.
The new approach: Frame the criticism as another example of Republicans complaining about something just because Obama was the one to do it.

And yet, there will never be enough RATS quitting and joining the opposition for an Obama impeachment.
Will not happen.
Democrats Quit on Obama
Ah ,sorry but that’s not allowed ,they may stray ,but reeducation bring them home
Conservative cynicism is a powerful weapon in the Left’s arsenal. Stop aiding and abetting.
Its too little, too late.
Their conduct and blind support for him up to now, has earned them the universal and everlasting disgust of everyone.
Their place in history, as the people MOST responsible for destroying America and mutilating our national character beyond all recognition, is secured!
They will not be able to live it down
AND the Republicans who stood by with their arms folded are AS MUCH to blame and can share equally in the scorn Liberals earned for themselves.
“...there will never be enough RATS quitting and joining the opposition for an Obama impeachment....”
Nope. They got that communist party discipline down to a science.
“I still believe good comes from government (e.g. 8 million in ACA).”
This important Democrat who got a clue on the Bergdahl story still is clueless on other failed policies of his Messiah. In other words, a hypocrite.
It may be that momentarily a few LIBs/DIMs will criticize Clown Prince nobama. However, wait a day or so and they will be back to their nefarious deeds. LIBs are unrepentant liars and are unrelenting termites eating-away at civilization. They are a pox on us.
He has delivered no hope, and a s---load of audacity!
Never? Are you sure?
Tell me why you feel that way...
CYA BS (really... 8 million in ACA—did not happen and is not financed, they are majority added to Medicaid and are now in our ERs in larger numbers than before).
CYA BS from a demo operative. It is an early sign on statement for hitlery... to complete the “good government” is any government power game and destroy the rest of the country for regular non elite people. This is a stupid post from Fournier if he doesn’t acknowledge this.
Rats are rats— and jump ship together, racing each other actually.
I’ll believe what he’s saying when they can actually prove it with actions.
Democrats don’t have a religion other than their politics, so it would be heresy for them to leave the cult. The believe government is God and will solve all of humanities problems as long as they are in charge.
Irrelevant. Typical American conservative loser pundit— three steps behind what’s actually occurring, feigning outrage, asking for money to fight yesterday’s battles.
Dear Mr. Fournier: Obama is going to do every whacked out thing you can imagine between now and November 2016. If he gets away with it, great for the Left. If he doesn’t, great for Hillary b/c it makes her look like a Moderate in the presidential race.
Oh, you might hear about a few dissenters in the ranks, but they will always be on background and never named. None of them will show their face and public denounce the emperor.
These extremist will never jump ship..
At this point they all can throw up their collective arms and say they’ve had ‘enough’. Doesn’t matter. The damage has been done and gravity has taken over.
This means that they will simply shift their adoration to Hillary, which is why it is so important to destroy her now.
Some Dems are awakening from their partisan coma. Impeachment is not on their minds, but the next two elections are. They see that Obama is leading them toward an electoral b l o o d b a t h in Nov, & they are even beginning to sense he could singlehandedly give the WH to the GOP in ‘16. They are in a hopeless quandary. Throwing Obama under the bus will not help their brand. Continuing to support the Obama trainwreck won’t help them either. [Obama’s negative average on RealClearPolitics hit -10.4 earlier today, before ‘rebounding’ to -9.8. This is toxicity level, & Obama has been stuck there for what must seem to Dems like forever.]
No, they won’t impeach him. Their black voters would revolt as has never been witnessed before, & likely never would be again. But they are trying to figure out how to avoid going down w Obama’s sinking ship. They have few options, none of them good. They’ll probably ultimately be stuck w simply trying to talk him into doing things differently, so as to stop the b l e e d i n g. He won’t listen, & they’ll lose big in Nov, if the Good Lord delays His return, & bigger in ‘16.
I remember all those jilted women for Hillary who were going to stop Obama in 2008. Oh yeah.
Libs, You Tied Him, You Ride Him...
And they'll become conservative before the next election too.
Then it's back to old fashioned fascism, socialism,
communism, and the work to destroy our Country!
Their votes will not change, their stripes will not change.
Bring back duels!
That way, Obama advisors will become very leary of implementing Obama's unconstituional dictates.
hillary, Susan Rice, Lois Lerner would be a good start.
Im calling BS.They are just saying this to try and show they care.They will say anything to stay in office.
The key questions to ask those Democrats who have “quit” Ophonybama are:
Did you take notes? and
Can I publish them? and
Will you testify at Ophonybama’s impeachment?
All this means is that it’s time to cut him loose for their own personal gain, and not for this country.
As usual it’s not the policy that is objected to, the person is upset because the “messaging” wasn’t handled well.
“one of the most powerful Democrats in Washington”
NAME???? Until these “powerful DemocRATs” come out of the shadows, stand up and speak out PUBLICALLY, I won’t believe it.
‘I’ve Had Enough:’ When Democrats Quit on Obama Just for the Election
“”DC is hard, and depressing,” the Democrat wrote. “I still believe good comes from government...”
You’re still mind blowingly stupid.
Obama’s a cash cow. No Democrat who covets Obama’s support will criticize him publicly-cowards.
The longest journey starts with one step forward...
As God is my witness I had no idea that TOTUS was considered a powerful Democrat.
But seriously, or series, "a close adviser" to the White House? Yeah. Right.
I don’t believe a single word Ron Fournier writes. He’s in the tank for Mulla Baraq and the Progs now and forever.
Ron Fournier is not a conservative. Aside from that I agree.
We can but hope that the Democrats will dump Obama—he isn’t one of them in truth.

Yet, their vile rants against G W Bush was perfectly acceptable.
I share this email to make the broader point and to offer a disclosure: In the 18 months since I began writing columns focused on the presidency, virtually every post critical of Obama has originated from conversations with Democrats. Members of Congress, consultants, pollsters, lobbyists, and executives at think tanks, these Democrats are my Obama-whispers. They respect and admire Obama but believe that his presidency has been damaged by his shortcomings as a leader; his inattention to details of governing; his disengagement from the political process and from the public; his unwillingness to learn on the job; and his failure to surround himself with top-shelf advisers who are willing to challenge their boss as well as their own preconceived notions.
This is the political equivalent of, "If we had some ham we'd have ham and eggs if we had some eggs." obama is what he has always been what he always will be.
(sorry for the double Ping) to more evidence that Barry has possibly jumped the shark into Nixonian-level pre-invitation-to-resign-level demands by Democrats as top level liberal journalist, the highly connected Ron Fournier of the relatively non-partisan (for DC) National Journal reports numerous insider Democrats coming to him and denouncing Barry latest acts of political suicide for their party.
Republican know that if they initiate impeachment it will blow back on them, but more Democrats now seem to realize that Barry will doom them to defeat not just in 2014 but he will doom Hillary to defeat in 2016 if he isnt stopped soon, especially after his entire nstional security team admitted that they all agreed to the obviously insane Bergdahl swap!
What is this?
Democrats are tired of King Hussein?
Phhhttt. I don’t buy it.
They are trying to create a divide for Queen Hilary to run on.
BEN SHAPIRO: OBAMA ADMINISTRATION ‘A CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE LIKE THE MAFIA’
May more of them leave Obama standing all alone.
