You all know the saying, “the gift that keeps on giving?” Well, that maxim certainly applies to our very own B. Hussein Obama — much to the chagrin of the Democrats running for reelection in very tough races.
As reported by the Washington Post — go figure — “A couple weeks ago, President Obama declared that, while he wasn’t on the Nov. 4 ballot, his policies were. And just about every GOP candidate in a red or swing state soon launched an ad using that comment to tie his or her Democratic opponent to Obama.”
“Well, Obama appears to have just handed Republicans some more ammunition. In an interview with Rev. Al Sharpton on Monday, Obama defended his support for candidates in top races who haven’t welcomed Obama to campaign with them. “The bottom line is, though, these are all folks who vote with me; they have supported my agenda in Congress,” Obama said. He continued: “So this isn’t about my feelings being hurt. These are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me. I tell them — I said, you do what you need to do to win. I will be responsible for making sure that our voters turn out.”
Now, y’all know I disagree with probably 99.9 percent of Barack Hussein Obama’s policies but here I must commend him on his truthfulness in this instance. Obama basically stated, on the record with Al Sharpton — as Mom taught me, people will know you by the company you keep — these Democrats out their running can say anything they want to get reelected because I know they support me and will continue to do so.
Talk about the proverbial kiss of death! Obama in these critical weeks has stated that yes, MY policies are on the ballot, all while these candidates — especially Democrat senatorial candidates — are trying to distance themselves from him. And now Obama freely admits, hey, these folks can say whatever they want in order to get elected, no problem, because I own them and they support me. I can just imagine the words spoken by staffers for just about every Democrat senatorial campaign that’s on the edge this election cycle.
What a narcissistic statement, and yes, he did say that.
The Post says, “Obama’s previous comment suggested the election was indeed something of a referendum on him, these comments suggest not only that, but that Democratic candidates are actually on-board with him — something most of them have made pains to argue is not the case. Obama’s comments are the kind of thing Democrats might privately say to assure donors and the party base, but wouldn’t really say in public.”
You might recall there was a recent undercover recording of Kentucky Democrat Senatorial candidate Allison Lundergan Grimes — who denied Obama more than Peter did Jesus — stating that Grimes’ vocal public support of the coal industry was just as Obama stated, saying what she needs to win. And if Grimes is elected, she’ll do exactly as Obama clearly wants to – f-k coal.
You always hear about the “October surprise?” Maybe Obama himself is delivering it, because after all, it IS all about him. Unfortunately, the Democrats in this election cycle don’t want anything to be about him and in the case of Sen. Mark Udall in Colorado, are trying to make the entire election about women’s rights — yep, what a losing strategy. And the fact that the uber liberal Denver Post endorsed the Republican challenger Rep. Cory Gardner is reflective that the well is dry.
So what’s left for Democrats? Well, we wrote about the last ditch effort — fear mongering in the black community for the failing black president. However, based on the reaction of the predominately black crowd at a rally in Maryland to Obama — heck, it ain’t even working there!
Hmm, so much for the thousands of fawning fans offering their adoration while Obama pranced before Greek columns. As it says in Proverbs 16:18, (NIV) “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.”
