Let’s just call it what it is: The country has a big, nasty case of V.D.
That’s Virus Democratus for all you Weiner for Mayor fans.
Come to think of it Weiner would be a big improvement on the current “weiner” “Occupying” the mayoral position in New York City.
Anywho, as I was saying: The country has a virus similar to the malaise that was going around when Carter was president. Our enemies are treated like friends and our friends are treated like enemies; Gas prices are high, wages are low, and the misery index is on the rise, even if calculated differently today than when Carter was the Worst-President-Ever.
This is what happens when you put hippies in charge. Again.
“Free” “love” and “peace” often ends in this type of communicable disease.
Quick: What percentage of people in the Obama administration do you think go to church each week? What percentage of people in the Obama administration smoke weed each week?
Now subtract the one number from the other.
The lurch to the left that has been institutionalized by our newest Worst-President-Ever – an ideological lurch where appearances don’t matter anymore- is scaring even Democrats.
“And while the president made the big calls, like pushing for a health-care overhaul, he did not always drive the administration's strategy on getting his agenda achieved. That has now, fully, changed,“ reports BuzzFeed.
Hurray! Obama’s now in charge of EVERYTHING.
“‘You're talking about somebody who has a tremendous amount of confidence in his own capacities,’” said a top Democrat. “‘On most days it's hard to tell him he's wrong about anything.’”
Really? You guys are just figuring this out now?
It’s not hard to tell the Democratus apparatus that they deserve exactly what they’ve got coming- while laughing uproariously.
After a decade of letting Obama work on scholarship because of white guilt, demographics and a weak bench of unelectable doofuses- John Edwards, Howard Dean, Joe Biden, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton anyone?- now that political results matter to the Democratus Party, some are getting a little shy about the president.
And can you blame them? These are folks who won’t get the same free pass that Obama gets.
Imagine when the entire Democrat party is remade in Obama’s image.
Politico laid out the dilemma facing Democrats even before Obama was sworn in for his second term.
“To the extent that they break with the president, it could be — I don’t want to say it is — a big advantage for them in deep-red states,” a Democrat strategist told Politico in January regarding Democrat Senators up for reelection.
Politico cited particularly the gun issue, where Democrats from more moderate states could be at risk by an aggressively left-wing Obama agenda.
Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.), who could face a tough reelection and has previously opposed reinstating the assault weapons ban, said there needs to be “more emphasis on [mental health issues and counseling families in crisis] as well as enforcing some of the laws that are already on the books.” She added it was important for Washington “not to overreact one way or another.”
[Senator Mark] Begich [D-AK] added: “To start saying we’re going to have more laws and more regulations, I think, would be problematic.”
Udall voiced similar sentiments, though he suggested more of an openness to tightening background checks.
“When you talk about gun rights and the situation in the West, there are very mixed feelings in terms of pushing a nationwide package — a one-size-fits-all package,” [Senator Tom] Udall [D-NM] said, questioning the effectiveness of an assault weapons ban.
From their mouths to Obama’s very large ears, somehow, something in the manner of this warning was lost in translation.
Because Obama’s defeat on the gun issue was both large and stunning.
Or, as Politico pointed out, maybe it was what we could have expected.
Any other president would have been defeated in November based on results. Any other president would have been chastened by the results, not emboldened.
Instead, Obama is acting more like himself, more in charge and exactly in character:
These are all symptoms of a very bad disease for the Democrats.
And because it’s communicable, the country is at risk as well.
