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..
