The Mark Foley Sex Scandals of Election 2006 finished off Republican chances in that year’s election. We began to explain what happened in election 2006 in the article Arrogance! Incompetence! Corruption!: Election 2006 And Dimocrat Obama’s Culture Of Corruption Election 2010, Part I. It was arrogance at the heart of the Republican problems in 2006 and when the Mark Foley sex scandal hit the headlines, it focused the public onto the fact that something was very wrong.
The Eric Massa Naked Politics Scandals of Election 2010 will finish off Dimocrats this year. Eric Massa has told a vivid story about Rahm Emanuel naked in the congressional gym that rings with truth. The Eric Massa story is focusing the public attention in the same way that the Mark Foley scandal focused the public attention in 2006. Americans know that something is very very wrong.
At the end of the day, what’s most harmful to the White House is that Massa’s claim reinforces a very damaging narrative: that this Administration is run by a bunch of political thugs who do things “The Chicago Way;” that the White House and Democrats in Congress will do “whatever it takes” to pass this particular piece of health care legislation.
To have Massa ripping his party and the administration in such a public way right as they’re in the middle of trying to woo and cajole enough House Democrats to vote “yes” on the the health care bill is at the very least unhelpful and might possibly turn out to be a disaster.
Some conservatives are looking a gift horse (that tells the truth) in the mouth, with caveats that are mostly irrelevant at this point. Glenn Beck is not looking the gift horse in the mouth but instead is hosting Eric Massa for the full hour today. Larry King will also host Massa.
In a move to counter Massa’s appearance on the Glenn Beck show and the Larry King show the Dimocrats are leaking allegations against Massa. The stories about Eric Massa have been circulating for months, if not years, and Dimocrats like Rahm Emanuel knew all the “rumors” about Eric Massa – for years. Only now, because Eric Massa is not bending to their will, are Dimocrats out to destroy Massa. We are not defending Massa (nor David Paterson) but we know a drive by shooting by Obama thugs when we see one.
We’ll return Arrogance! Incompetence! Corruption!: Election 2006 And Dimocrat Obama’s Culture Of Corruption Election 2010, Part III tomorrow.
