'2010 is gone for Democrats'

By ROGER SIMON
9/14/10

2010 Is ‘Gone,’ Says Big-Time Dem

“He cannot save 2010,” the big-time Democrat is saying of Barack Obama.“It is gone. He must now concentrate on saving 2012. But the biggest fear of some of those close to him is that he might not really want to go on in 2012, that he might not really care.”

In my experience, the big-time Democrat has hardly ever been wrong. He does not dislike President Obama. On the contrary, like most big-time Democrats, he worked hard for his election in 2008 and would much rather see Democrats hold onto Congress this Nov. 2 than lose.

He just doesn’t think it’s going to happen. A few months ago, he told me Democrats could win the House in a squeaker and also retain the Senate. We talked again a few days ago, and things had changed.

“There is going to be a total wipeout, and it is totally going to be in Obama’s lap,” he said.“He should drop plans for Congress and plan for Nov. 3 and what he does next.”

The big-time Democrat appreciates the unfairness of this. We always go around saying,“all politics is local,” until it comes to the midterm elections, when politics becomes a national referendum on the sitting president.

David Plouffe, Obama’s campaign manager in 2008, said on “Meet the Press With David Gregory” on Sept. 5 that “our House candidates are running great localized campaigns, really focusing on turnout and making that a choice between two individuals.”

In other words, Democrats can do great as long as the election is not about Obama.

Good luck with that. Obama was not a hyperpartisan figure when he ran for president, but now, as the de facto head of his party, he must travel across the country beating the drum for every Democrat — or at least those who will have him. And this election is largely about Obama and his successes and failures in his first two years in office.

Which is the problem.“You know the president is in trouble when people in the White House go around saying,‘If the public only knew this guy!’” the Democrat said.“Obama has been in the public eye for three years, and people are saying they don’t know him? Whose fault is that? The public’s?”

President Obama seeks his inner Bill Clinton and feels voters' pain

By Sam Youngman
09/13/10

Democratic strategists worry the president is seen as too aloof.

Unlike former President Clinton, who famously felt the pain of voters during a recession, Obama has not connected emotionally with voters over their worries and fears.

Voters two years ago appreciated Obama’s cool, professorial demeanor; it earned him praise, as in “No drama Obama,” and drew favorable contrasts with both President George W. Bush and the Republican presidential nominee, Sen. John McCain (Ariz.).

But it is widely perceived as less appealing now, as the administration has struggled to revive the economy and convey an impression of strong management.

Democratic strategists worry the president is seen as too aloof. An Associated Press/GfK poll late last month showed that only 41 percent of those surveyed approve of the way Obama is handling the economy.

Democratic strategists worry this disconnect will lead to losses for Democrats at the polls in November, when the party fears it could lose control of the House and Senate.

“The problem is he doesn’t seem like he’s always trying to be empathetic,” said one Democratic strategist.

Obama should take a huge Pay Cut so he really feels the Pain instead of writing Children's Books and being set for life time Tax Payer funded lavish living.

People seem to forget that if you vote for the lessor of two evils, you still end up with evil. That's what's wrong with our electorate. Too many attach themselves to a party rather than looking at the individual candidates, their record, and what they stand for.

What's the difference between voting for a Republican-lite or a Democratic candidate. I have more respect for the Democrat because he's not trying to straddle the middle. The RINO is a weakling that refuses to take a stand.

In the last 40 years I've voted for Republicans, Democrats, and Independents. I've always selected the "person" regardless of the letter following their name. Why have so many become lemmings who refuse to use the God-given reasoning skills they were born with and instead allowed themselves to be led like zombies to the polls?

The RINO is a Progressive enabler. The Republican party does not need RINO'S because the Progressives are the real extremists.

We've just watched Obama and the Democrats come in, ram everything down whether you like it or not and brush off the hope for Bi-Partisanship by claiming: "Too Bad, We Won. Our way only."

The problem is that when push comes to shove, the Majority Party has become a Monolith and basically votes along party lines instead of what is Right or Best for the country.

Other part of the problem is that these politicians do not actually know what is best for the country and are basically there for a Money Grab or Benefits Grab for their friends, constituents and anyone else giving to their campaign.

It's not about what's best but about what I can get. Unless that changes, we will continue to see politicians getting worse and our country falling farther behind.

Woof, Lancislow, Mutual Assured Destruction (MAD) is more typified by the Democrat leadership. You know, the three stooges, Barry, Harry, and Nancy! They couldn't empty a pale of water without a million dollars and 2 thousand pages of instructions. Then they would still pour it all over themselves.

Feds Spent $800,000 of Economic Stimulus on African Genital-Washing Program

( CNSNews.com )– The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), spent $823,200 of economic stimulus funds to pay for a study by a UCLA research team to teach African American men how to bath and wash their genitals...

This sort of thing is beyond unconscious ridiculous!!

Why does the American Taxpayer have to pay to teach liberals how to wash and bath themselves?

There is always some good news when it comes to the fringe, the wings, the teabags, the extremeists, the bigots, the racists and the Party of Effing Hell No:

I wanted to send you my thoughts about the Obama speech to kids ...

"In the year since I issued a prepared statement regarding President Obama speaking to the Nation's school children, I have learned a great deal about the party I so deeply loved and served. Unfortunately, I found that many within the GOP have racist views and I apologize to the President for my opposition to his speech last year and my efforts to placate the extremists who dominate our Party today. My children and I look forward to the President's speech."
