Itís Not Bernie Sanders Holding The Democrats Back -- Itís Obama (WaPost)
Fox News ^ | 7-10-2018 | F H Buckely

Posted on 07/11/2018 7:11:54 AM PDT by blam

Politics has become so mindless I’m almost ready to watch soccer. On the left, Trump is the root of all evil. On the right, the pro-Trumpers mostly just repeat themselves. So to make things more interesting, let a Trump supporter tell you how the Democrats can win an election.

Spoiler: It’s not Bernie Sanders holding the party back; it’s Barack Obama.

I know at this moment, it looks pretty hopeless. I don’t think socialism is the ticket, or open borders either. And the “Abolish ICE” crowd makes it seem as if the party of FDR and JFK has a death wish.

But the wheel turns and somehow yesterday’s big loser eventually ends up on top. In Britain, you have the impossible Jeremy Corbyn, but faced with a feckless Theresa May, Corbyn’s Labor Party nearly won the last election. So anything can happen.

The no-holds-barred cage match for control of the Democrat Party has begun. Make more popcorn!

"So what’s stopping them? It’s not Bernie Sanders, and it’s not Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Instead, the barrier is Barack Obama, who radicalized the party with his pessimism, who reminded us of past sins, who told Americans they should feel ashamed of themselves."

The Democrats have become the anti-American party.

I'm disturbed at how vulgar and nasty the Democrat women have become too.

MAGA

But we also remember things like the Pablo Casals concert at the White House back in ’61, and we’re sorry that that’s not happening today.

No we don't. I'm no youngster, and I don't even know what a Pablo Casals is.

Obama and Clinton are AWOL.

Does the Democratic Party have a leader?

No one knows. No one who is popular or credible, that’s for sure.

The Democrats have become the anti-American party.
********************************
BINGO. And, IMHO, they’ve been the anti-American party FOR DECADES. It’s just more in the open now.

The author is correct that it is Obama, not Bernie. However, it is a “weak link in the change sort of ting. i.e. remove the weak link (Obama) and the next weakest link (Bernie) becomes the weak link.

What’s holding the left back is their bloodlust to slaughter babies. It’s starting to manifest in madness.

I can't find a great, even if tasteless, cartoon of several days ago which showed a rat on stage farting into a microphone, "Open Borders, Abolish ICE, Socialism etc.

Very succinct.

Short version: he encourages Dems to 1. get more celebrities ("cultural outreach to the artists of our time"), 2. forgive millennial student loan debt through bankruptcy, 3. oppose lobbyists and corruption, and 4. healthcare reform with single payer for those with pre-existing conditions.

1. They already have 98% of the celebrity world. More does nothing.
2. Dumb idea, but perfect for Democrats.
3. Dems cannot substantively oppose their main sources of income, nor allow a focus on it that the voters won't let go.
4. Dumb idea, but perfect for Democrats.

“His charisma enabled him to win despite the moralizing message. But his successors don’t possess his personal charm, and his legacy burdens his party. If it can’t get over him, it won’t adapt. It will die.”

the problem with this thesis is that the Dem party has now been so thoroughly infected with the obamunism virus that it has become a terminal condition ...
