He may be correct in that assumption but I very much doubt it. The bloom is off the Obama rose, except for those misguided Obama devotees who still see him as the 21st century’s messiah.
It’s really amazing when you think of it. This gifted orator who swept across the electoral landscape like an awesome tornado, leveling most opposition and creating a heavily Democrat-controlled Congress just short of two years ago, is now on the verge of seeing his party shorn of control of Congress.
And nobody can legitimately suggest that it is anything but his fault. He has led his troops into a political Dunkirk without the prospect of deliverance. There’s no Churchill to rescue them. And as his party’s leader, he seems perfectly content with the disaster that looms ahead for Democrats.
All this is not to say that he relishes the prospect of a Democratic free-fall; simply that he is sufficiently cynical to appreciate the opportunities inherent therein.
It is the misfortune of the Democratic Party membership that they failed to recognize that their standard bearer was -- and is -- deeply immersed in a narcissism that allows him to believe he is their superior in all things political and they had better heed his words, delivered with or without a pair of teleprompters.
They will pay the price on November 2, and it will be a whopper.
