The New York Times proves it is worthless with a story today called “Obama Coalition Is Fraying“. We know many who voted for Obama are drenched in regret. But the Obama Coalition is a “situation comedy” demographic of African-Americans, the temporarily young, and well off gentry white liberals, not what the New York Times describes.
The Obama voters who are voting GOP this year were never part of the patchwork crazy-quilt Obama strategists and the truly stupid Democratic “leaders” envisioned as the new Obama Dimocratic Party.
The Obama “situation comedy” coalition in fact was a rejection of the winning coalition of FDR/Hillary Clinton. The “situation comedy” coalition was never a way to build a party. Now the consequences are clear as the snubbed and disenfranchise get the message and walk away:
“Republicans have wiped out the advantage held by Democrats in recent election cycles among women, Roman Catholics, less affluent Americans and independents. All of those groups broke for Mr. Obama in 2008 and for Congressional Democrats when they grabbed both chambers from the Republicans four years ago, according to exit polls.
If women choose Republicans over Democrats in House races on Tuesday, it will be the first time they have done so since exit polls began tracking the breakdown in 1982.
The poll provides a pre-Election Day glimpse of a nation so politically disquieted and disappointed in its current trajectory that 57 percent of the registered voters surveyed said they were more willing to take a chance this year on a candidate with little previous political experience. More than a quarter of them said they were even willing to back a candidate who holds some views that “seem extreme.”
Obama and the Obama Dimocratic Party dumped senior voters, snubbed white working class voters, insulted women and gay citizens, in favor of the weak “situation comedy” coalition of frat boys, gentry whites, and besotted with skin color “pride” African-Americans – a weak foundation on which to build a political party. This then is the result:
“With a week to go until Election Day, House Democrats face the potential of a political bloodbath the size of which we haven’t seen since the presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt.”
While the Obama “situation comedy” is in the process of being canceled Barack Obama flew to The Daily Show. It was a Halloween display of petulance, promises, and prickliness. In short it was further embarrassments.
“On Comedy Central, the joke was on President Obama Wednesday night.
The president had come, on the eve of what will almost certainly be the loss of his governing majority, to plead his case before Jon Stewart, gatekeeper of the disillusioned left. But instead of displaying the sizzle that won him an army of youthful supporters two years ago, Obama had a Brownie moment.
The Daily Show host was giving Obama a tough time about hiring the conventional and Clintonian Larry Summers as his top economic advisor.
“In fairness,” the president replied defensively, “Larry Summers did a heckuva job.”
“You don’t want to use that phrase, dude,” Stewart recommended with a laugh.
Dude. The indignity of a comedy show host calling the commander in chief “dude” pretty well captured the moment for Obama. He was making this first-ever appearance by a president on the Daily Show as part of a long-shot effort to rekindle the spirit of ’08. In the Daily Show, Obama had a friendly host and an even friendlier crowd.”
Obama, having made a fool of himself with the “heckuva job” blunder followed up that blunder by saying “pun intended”. Larry Summers, the egotistical Harvard professor was pushed under the bus because Obama did not want to admit that he had just compared his economic team to the George W. Bush Hurricane Katrina team. Of course, the strong argument can be made that the Obama economic team is less capable than the Bush team at Katrina savaged New Orleans.
Barack Obama was petulant on The Daily Show. His inner Urkel insecurities were on display for all to see as he was mocked and laughed at even though it was a very friendly audience prepared to give the boob a break.
“But, as in his MTV appearance a couple of weeks ago, Obama didn’t try to connect with his youthful audience. He was serious and defensive, pointing a finger at his host several times as he quarreled with the premise of a question.
Stewart, who struggled to suppress a laugh as Obama defended Summers, turned out to be an able inquisitor on behalf of aggrieved liberals. He spoke for the millions who had been led to believe that Obama was some sort of a messianic figure. Obama has only himself to blame for their letdown. By raising expectations impossibly high, playing the transformational figure to Hillary Clinton’s status-quo drone, he gave his followers an unrealistic hope.
“You’re coming from a place, you ran on a very high rhetoric: ‘hope’ and ‘change.’ And the Democrats this year seem to be running on ‘Please, baby, one more chance.‘” Stewart observed. “Are you disappointed in how it’s gone?”
Obama replied that he was advised after the election that “two years from now, folks are going to be frustrated” — a prediction he did not make public to his starry-eyed suporters at the time.
“We have done things that some folks don’t even know about,” Obama ventured.”
We expect the Republican Congress will push aside the rocks and uncover exactly what “things” have been done “that some folks don’t even know about.” Expect that sentence to be the one that Barack Obama will most come to rue because it reeks of deeper meanings.
Stewart mocked Obama: “Is the difficulty that you have here the distance between what you ran on and what you delivered? You ran with such, if I may, audacity…. yet legislatively it has felt timid at times.” Obama bristled. Obama finger-pointed. Obama admitted that the foundation of his policies “is corrupt”
“Still, the president did not really quarrel with Stewart’s notion that Obama has done some of his work in a “political manner that has papered over a foundation that is corrupt.”
“I think that is fair,” Obama granted.”
Corruption was not papered over, it was slathered on like syrup on a child’s ice cream treat.
On The Daily Show “Yes, We Can” sank to “Yes We Can, but, it’s not going to happen overnight.” The celestial choirs howled with laughter.
So degraded is Barack Obama that on Politico the story of the day is Jon Stewart, not Barack Obama. Think about that. A supposed website about politics is focused on how important a comedian is on the day after said comedian just interviewed a goofball president.
Today the authors of Game Change wonder if Obama will “change the game again“. they write:
“On the line for Obama will be his place in history: whether he retains the possibility of being a seminal historical figure or sees his presidency rendered as a failed, one-term accident.
For Obama to avoid the latter fate, he will need to muster all of the considerable talent he displayed in 2008. He will need to persuade the country that he is on the way to fulfilling the grand and sweeping promise he embodied for many in that campaign. To make further transformation seem essential while arguing in favor of continuity. To rouse the passions of those he has disappointed and to allay the fears of those he has turned wary. He will need, in other words, to change the game again.”
The authors of Game Change don’t know what they are talking about. Barack Obama is not a “one-term accident”. Barack Obama is the product of decisions and actions by JournoListers and Big Media to ignore the corruption which brought Obama to power.
Barack Obama is the product of schemes and dreams crafted by corrupt power players such as Ted Kennedy, Tom Daschle, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi 2×4 Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin, and Rahm Emanuel. Barack Obama is the product of strategists who fooled themselves and others into thinking that a political party could be built by snubbing white working class voters, women, and instead snipping together a patchwork coalition of disparate interests. Barack Obama is the product of dupes and dopes like Donna Brazile and Big Blog Boys and Nutroot activists who are well educated but lack common sense and discernment. It was the gullibility of the cynical.
There was no “considerable talent” displayed by Obama in 2008. What was considerable was the Big Media attacks on anyone who dared question the blivet that is Barack Obama. What was considerable was the rescue squads from the Democratic establishment and Big Media as Obama fumbled, bumbled and was dragged to the finish line.
What was considerable was the theft of votes in Michigan, and Florida and even from Hillary Clinton, votes that were won by election, not selection.
What was considerable was the economic crisis that eventually persuaded most Americans to throw out the GOP. What was considerable was the exhaustion with George W. Bush who by the end of the year returned to the front pages along with the economic crisis. Now Americans, according to polls, prefer even George W. Bush to Barack Obama. Americans want Obama fired in 2012. So much for “transformational”.
In Barack Obama’s “situation comedy” Dimocratic Party it is OK to call a woman the most sexist and misogynistic terms – what was done to Hillary Clinton is now aimed at Meg Whitman, Sarah Palin, Sharon Angle – and the mainline fake women groups stay silent. It’s all one big joke to call women running for election “whores” and “bitches”.
It’s all one big joke. The biggest joke of all is Barack Obama. On Tuesday, Americans will have the last laugh.
