You want to know how things are going for Democrats 30 days out from the midterm elections?
Well, just take a gander at this by The Hill: “Democrats are starting to play the blame game as they face the possibility of losing the Senate in November. Tempers are running high a month out from Election Day, with polls showing Democratic candidates trailing in the crucial battleground states that will decide whether control of Congress flips to Republicans.”
“The behind-the-scenes tension broke into the open last week when former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D-S.D.) questioned Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) decision not to endorse Democrat Rick Weiland in South Dakota’s Senate race. Pro-immigrant advocacy groups, meanwhile, are saying Democrats should not blame them if Latino voters don’t turn up to the polls on Election Day.”
“They say President Obama made a tactical blunder by postponing an executive order easing deportations. And grassroots organizers are grumbling about Alison Lundergan Grimes’s (D-Ky.) bid to take down Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), arguing her campaign has been disorganized — add to that the Project Veritas video of her campaign staffers admitting that she is just paying lip service to supporting coal in Kentucky. “Yes, you’ve seen pre-emptive finger pointing in the last couple of weeks,” said Gerald Warburg, a former Senate Democratic leadership aide and assistant dean at the University of Virginia’s Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy.”
And then there was the boneheaded statement by the Narcissist-in-Chief, Barack Hussein Obama, who said, “make no mistake, these policies – in other words his policies — are on the ballot.” Now, I suppose he was being his normal dismissive self and wanted to crack more jokes before another fawning crowd. Heck, even David Axelrod said this was a mistake.
So now, the very weak hand the progressive socialists of the Democrat party have is even weaker — made so by the toxic person with whom none of them wish to be seen in public. Obama has placed his 42 percent approval rating about their neck like a mill stone.
Ya just gotta give it to Obama. Here we had the Republicans lost in the wilderness without a unifying national theme, agenda, policy direction — and Obama just served up a weak pitch straight down the middle to be hit deep centerfield out of the park. We’re not better off than we were six years ago – for one thing, Americans aren’t used to seeing Americans beheaded.
The Hill goes on, “With control of the Senate in jeopardy, some Democrats are eyeing potential scapegoats: Obama’s low approval rating; low turnout from Hispanic voters; overly centrist messaging; and the media, to name just a few. One of the Senate’s most vulnerable incumbents, Sen. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) recently said he wants to replace Reid by electing Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) as majority leader. He made the comments at a fundraiser, according to audio obtained by The Washington Free Beacon. Pryor said the “best thing that could happen” to the Senate would be if McConnell “gets beat and Harry Reid gets replaced.”
Yeah, ya think Harry Reid is going to just be voted out? But the Democrats will throw anybody under the bus in order to retain power — just ask that poor schmuck in Kansas, you know, the Democrat candidate for Senate who was told to drop out — yep, we wrote about that here — no one remembers that fella!
The Hill says, “Obama’s dropping poll numbers, particularly on foreign policy, could prove fatal for some candidates. The president has tried to deflect criticism over his response to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) by remarking that U.S. intelligence initially underestimated the threat. That did not sit well with Democrats such as former Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) who might run for Senate in 2016. “As commander in chief, you’re accountable. You’re the one who is responsible whether the good ship of state is doing it right,” he told National Journal.”
Barack had best “beware the Ides of March” as the metaphorical long knives will be out for him if Dems are crushed in a month, especially after his egotistical statement about “my policies are on the ballot.”
And amazingly what is the progressive socialist response? Well, the problem is that the Dems haven’t gone far enough to the Left — “I would argue that we would be in a better place if candidates across the board were running on an economic populist message,” said Charles Chamberlain, executive director of Democracy for America. “We can’t just run on being GOP light,” he said. “For example, in Kentucky, where we polled on expanding Social Security, if Alison Lundergan Grimes was running on expanding Social Security or on a more populist economic message I think she would be in a different place in the polling.” Chamberlain said he is optimistic the Democrats would keep control of the Senate.”
Now that dude is delusional — Dems are “GOP light?” I am indeed ROTFLMAO.
Even in deep blue strongholds such as Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island there are possibilities that Republicans will win Gubernatorial races. This is going to be an interesting month and it will be quite interesting to hear the Dem response to a potential political Armageddon similar to what the GOP experienced in 2006. One thing for certain, they will NEVER admit their policies aren’t consistent with American values — they will do as Obama did after 2010 and as Mr. Chamberlain suggested, double down on progressive socialist policies.
