It is simply too late for Big Media to now write articles about the Obama Dimocrats, the white working class and the Cult of Obama. Elenor Clift is simply too late with too little. Her latest on the Cult Of Obama and the damage done is simply too too late. It’s too fake because it is so late:
“Democrats got the lowest share of the white vote in this midterm election than in any congressional election since World War II, losing key races in Pennsylvania, Illinois, and Michigan, and every contested election in Ohio, which spells trouble for President Obama’s reelection. No Democrat can win the White House without these Midwestern swing states, and they are all decimated by job losses that Obama has offered no road map to recover. [snip]
Part of Obama’s problem is that there’s too much hero worship around him, and that translates into a reluctance to fault him for anything, except maybe that he didn’t make a good enough case for all the wonderful things he’s done. [snip]
In his post-election press conference, Obama said there must be easier ways to learn the hard lessons of politics than getting the shellacking he and the Democrats got. There are, and if his aides weren’t so in love with him and wrapped up in the idea of him as a transformational president, they might have seen this coming. Obama’s problems with white working-class voters surfaced during the primaries, when he lost West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Ohio to Hillary, and those problems could prove lethal in 2012 not only for Obama but for the five Democratic senators who are up for reelection in the Midwest and the Rust Belt.
Obama is an undefined figure to much of the country, and to his fellow Democrats. Though he’s portrayed as a liberal, it’s not clear what he’ll fight for, and he keeps that deliberately vague, perhaps hoping to deliver on the post-partisan promise his election represented.“
It’s too late. It’s FAKE. All this phony baloney “analysis” in 2010 about what was obvious in 2007. It’s fake “cover your ass” analysis from phonies who either did not know and therefore should not be listened to or did know and kept quiet.Read Eleanor's column. I like her, I'm sorry. She's often funny on TV (with McLaughlin Group) and she's not shy and retiring. You can't be that on that program. You get walked all over. Instead, she sticks up for her beliefs and opinions. And I like that about her.
I also like that she's writing about "the cult of Obama" -- although, if you ask me, Ava and C.I. nailed it years and years ago naming it "the Cult of St. Barack."
I don't have much to write tonight. I'm back home. At my parents. The kids are asking why they can't stay in their rooms. Uh, I'm letting a relative live there, so, no, we're not going to go barging in. But we will go over there so they can grab some toys that they keep here.
The airport. Oh my goodness.
First off, I'm so glad for the TSA coverage.
If it weren't for that I'd probably be outraged.
Instead, I actually feel like it wasn't that bad after hearing all the horror stories the last few days.
So I'm tired and I'm home with my parents for the first night and haven't seen them since they visited California this summer so I'm just going to make this a really short post tonight, sorry.
