Liberals Are In Disarray

To say that liberals, and more specifically democrats, are in a state of disorder over the upcoming Presidential election would be a major understatement. Liberal pundits and politicians are throwing every possible excuse up against the proverbial wall hoping that something will stick; hoping that something, anything, will turn the tide for their guy, who by all previous estimations, should be running away with this election without the slightest worry that he’ll not gain the trust of the American people for a second term. That’s not happening. That’s not going to happen.

That’s not to say that he won’t win a squeaker in November. There’s still enough intellectually dishonest, stupid people out there who may vote. But every day, the likelihood diminishes drastically. The Washington Post’s Kathleen Parker is right in this respect, “Nobody likes a loser“, and that includes the brain dead. Parker lays out in no uncertain terms that the pack smells blood and they’re beginning to turn.

But the fact that Obama’s surrogates can’t stick to the script may be the best barometer of his perilous incumbency. In the political jungle, where people tend to be more Darwinian than divine, he is wounded and the pack is beginning to turn. Former Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell, who could be a hockey mom if he wore lipstick, recently told CBS’s Charlie Rose that Hillary Clinton would have been a better president.

Yes, that is blood you smell.

The Daily Beast goes with the tired meme that the Obama Campaign is “sleepwalking” through consistently bad economic news and that they won’t wake up in time to right the ship:
If the next five months are anything like the last two, Barack Obama is toast. That’s what many Democrats are saying privately, and it’s not about Wisconsin.

The effort to recall Scott Walker failed, but exit polls show the president holding an edge in the state, which hasn’t voted Republican since 1984. It’s the weak job numbers from last week that has Democrats panicking. There’s a sense that the economy has stalled, and that the Obama campaign is stuck in a time warp with a message that assumes steady if slow progress, when the jobs picture may not get better.

“Our real concern is that they’re just sleepwalking,” says a Democratic strategist, who did not want to be quoted by name criticizing the Obama campaign.  His fear, echoed by many, is that Obama’s responses to the dire economic conditions fall far short of the bold leadership needed.

Then of course there’s the old fallback position of lazy liberals, the race card. Mike Lupica of the New York Daily News played the race card once again, saying that in 2008, Americans who are inherently racist anyway, somehow voted for the black guy despite their racism because they didn’t have a good excuse not to. This time around, however, they don’t have any other excuses not to let their true, racist nature show, so they won’t vote for him. Did you follow that logic? No? Me either.

I wonder if liberals will ever wake up to the fact that they simply have a flawed candidate who has a lot of baggage from his past, was unable to keep his promises from 2008, never really grasped the enormity of being President of the United States, was in over his head from the start, and whose main objective, that most voters want no part of, was to transform the country, not help facilitate a true recovery?

Yeah me neither, I’m thinking they’ll just keep trying to find something that sticks to the proverbial wall of blame to explain away his resounding defeat come November.

UPDATE: Just in case you needed more evidence.

    I don’t why everyone keeps on saying this election will be a close one. If the vote last Tuesday is any indication, “Walks on Water” will lose in a huge landside. Especially, if he keeps on saying things that he said yesterday. Hussien just had his Michael Dukakis  moment.

      Not a coherent one anyway.

      But folks like chickenshit Grumpy will still say racism, all the while claiming Obama will walk away with the election in Nov but still wont put his money where his mouth is.  Here is a clue for you to find your mouth Grumpy.  It is attached to Obama’s ass in a permanent pucker.

        Romney uses a teleprompter – but the righty whities don’t hate that. They only hate it when Obama uses a teleprompter.

        How pathetically transparent they are. If you’re white it’s ok to use a teleprompter, as Romney does without objection from the right.

        But when you’re not white — oh my, using a teleprompter is a bad thing.

        Feel free to demonstrate this point some more, Jim. I knew I could count on you.

        Why don’t you repeat the lie that the New Party is an indicator that Obama is a “communist” — even though you know it doesn’t and have seen the evidence that it does not indicate that at all.

        Show everybody how you’re incapable of telling the truth, Repeatedly.

        • retired.military

          Ah yes.  The infamous race card right on time.  Tell me something Chickenshit.  Does Romney use a teleprompter to talk to 6th graders?

          You said that there wasnt a script Grumpy yet the word racist gets thrown around by you lefties for everything from talikng about Obama using a teleprompter to our dislike of Obama’s global warming policies (Hint Al Gore is white and he is an idiot too).

          • jim_m

             Nor has there been an incident where Romney used a teleprompter to address a committee like 0bumbles has.

            Just like on the previous thread Grumpy quickly resorts to name calling and distraction.

            As for you Grumpy, the only racist here is you.  You are the only person bringing up race.  Race is irrelevant when we are all talking about competency.

            You are the biggest racist here.  By far.

        • jim_m

          Why don’t you repeat the lie that the New Party is an indicator that Obama is a “communist” — even though you know it doesn’t and have seen the evidence that it does not indicate that at all.

          They were founded by members of the DSA who were Marxists.  If you could read my posts you would have read that.

          Now why don’t you address why obama was raised by a communist mentor, hung with communists and socialists in college (by his own admission), worked with communists, and hired communists to work in the White House,

          You are the liar who claims that my argument was based on one proof only.  You have repeatedly run away from discussing ANY of the other claims.  You are the liar and the coward and as you have proven here on this thread you are the racist.

        • jim_m

           Hey Grumpy,  Maybe you could explain again how when I called 41% a plurality that I was actually claiming it to be a majority?  You never did explain yourself on that and it was an out and out lie.  And when I called you on that you fled the thread.

    What the Democrats have created is a coalition of groups, many of which either hate each other outright, or have very little in common with each other.  How else can you explain Labor Unions existing with radical environmentalists;  feminists and Islamists; the black community and the gay community; etc. 

    The sad thing is that when they offered Obama to us, it was probably the most racist thing they could have done.  Here was a Black man with little to no accomplishments; very little Public sector experience, and absolutely no private sector experience, who was in Harry Reid’s and Joe Biden’s words was “clean and articulate”.  He had the advantage of running against a boring old establishment white guy, and in a country that was war weary and ready to give the Democrats a chance after 8 years of Bush.  Had he been White, or a Republican, on his background alone, would have probably been laughed off the stage. 

    Unfortunately for the Democrat party, they have to dance with the one that brought them.  To ditch Obama would be to lose one of those core constituencies, the Black vote.  But with the tenuous nature of the Democrat coalitions, what we are seeing is a house of cards, waiting for a good windstorm to blow it down.

    Yesterday, Billy Bob’s former Defense Councilor  Lanny Davis was saying “You have vicious people who are working for the president….”.  Of course Davis doesn’t blame the president….the same guy who has surrounded himself with these “vicious people”.  Go figure.

    “Liberals are in Disarray”  Yep, pretty much says it all.  The last two disastrous weeks have largely been a series of self-inflicted wounds for the Obama campaign.  And when a campaign starts making a series of unforced errors, it’s usually pretty clear what this portends … http://bit.ly/qVdDUt

    Actually, liberals have always been in disarray.  The team players are much more comfortable in the Republican party.  At Democratic functions, nothing starts on time, nobody pays attention to the speaker, at least two people are arguing in every room, and nobody cares about the message coming down from the top.  About the only thing uniting them is a concern for individual freedom.  Unfortunately, there is no discussion of the responsibility that makes freedom possible.  So I would not take too much comfort in the fact that they are currently in disarray.  It is their normal state.

      • herddog505

        Well, in all fairness, the dems ARE concerned – VERY concerned – about some individual freedoms:

        — A woman’s right to murder her unborn child;

        — The right of people to leak classified information;

        — The right to protest – even violently – people, groups and organizations that democrats don’t like;

        — The right to be free from religion.

        — Etc.

        Other individual freedoms, not so much.

      • ackwired

        Since always.  Liberal, liberty.  Note the same root. 

        From http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/liberal

        favorable to or in accord with concepts of maximum individual freedom possible, especially as guaranteed by law and secured by governmental protection of civil liberties.

        • Evil Otto

          especially as guaranteed by law and secured by governmental protection of civil liberties

          …As long as the liberal approves of the civil liberty in question.

          Oh, by the way, a dictionary definition is not an argument. What the definition says and what the reality is are often two very different things. Liberals long ago abandoned the concept of “maximum individual freedom.”

          • ackwired

            My point was that liberals are only united by a concern for individual freedom.  Jim forund this threatening to his political opinions and asked since when.  My response was since the word liberal came into use, and the dictioonary helped illustrate that fact.

          • herddog505

            A spade can call itself a pick, but that don’t make it a pick.

            As for the liberal concern for individual freedom, don’t make me laugh.  From telling us what type of toilet we can have to telling us that we MUST buy health insurance, libs have seldom met a government mandate they didn’t like.

            And, yes, conservatives are often just as bad.  Indeed, there is and has always been a disgusting tendency amongst Americans to be interfering busybodies.  “Why, yes, I DO know better than you how you ought to live your life, and I won’t hesitate to force you if you aren’t smart enough to heed my sage, selfless, altruistic, gee-ain’t-I-a-saint-for-giving-it-to-you advice.”

            When I see libs telling Michelle Obama and Michael Bloomberg, “Get stuffed; we’ll decide what we or our children eat and drink” or telling unions, “F*ck off, I don’t need to pay you for the priviledge of working here,” then I’ll start believing that libs actually care about individual freedoms.  Until then, not so much.

          • ackwired

            I think that the truth of the matter is contained in your answer.  Liberals and Conservatives prioritize different liberties.  Liberals honor the right of workers to unite and bargain collectively.  Conservatives honor the right to work without having to belong to a union.  Liberals honor the right of minorities to enjoy the same civil rights as the majority.  Conservatives honor the rights of government to restrict those rights. 

            Neither one honors the responsibilities that make those liberties possible and functional.

          • jim_m

            Liberals honor the right of workers to unite and bargain collectively.

            So FDR and George Meany (former president of the AFL-CIO) are not liberals because they both stood against the idea of public employee unions?

            Go learn your history before you make more of a fool of yourself.

            Liberals do not stand for liberty any more.  Perhaps they did once upon a time but no more.  Just like democrats don’t believe in democracy, which is demonstrated by their unwillingness to abide by election results that go against them and their repeatedly fleeing the state when faced with legislative defeat.

            In other words, it’s just as I wrote initially:

            Libs are concerned – VERY concerned – about SOME freedoms.

            By that standard, so have been just about every despot in history:

            “Oh, I’m TOTALLY in favor of the freedom of the people to do what I think they ought to do.”

          • ackwired

            As you pointed out, the same is true of conservatives.

          • jim_m

             I didn’t find it threatening.  I found it hopelessly absurd to claim that today’s left even gives one jot about personal liberty.  Why does the left constantly shout down and try to silence its critics?  Show me a college campus that hasn’t either refused a conservative speaker the right to speak or has had those speeches disrupted or cancelled due to left wing thuggery.  The left cannot tolerate diversity of opinion.  You are free to do whatever the left is OK with.  That happens to exclude practicing Christianity in any form that affects your public life.

          • ackwired

            Jim, I don’t see anything that you have listed there that is not also true of conservatives.  None of it would prevent them from having in common the advocation of civil rights.

          • jim_m

             Yeah, but I was not making some ludicrous claim like you were that because liberals are called liberal that they are for “liberty”.  Please.  Look up the origin of the liberal movement and discover why the left is called liberal.  It has less to do with the politics of today than it does the politics of 100 to 200 years ago.

          • ackwired

            Of course the libertarian generalization (and I think it is a good one) is that liberals care more about civil liberties, conservatives care more about economic liberties, and libertarians care about both.

       ” About the only thing uniting them [liberals] is a concern for individual freedom. ”

      That sure as hell made my head go tilt.

      All the liberals I come in contact with here in northern Ma are united by a common disdain for the average person. These ever-so-tolerant liberals feel that most people are just too damn stupid to live their lives and they need these super-smart busy-bodies to tell them how to live – all for a price of course, higher and higher taxes.

      They’re also united by a complete inability to defend their views.

      But individual freedom? Only for abortion, nothing else.

    The essence of Chicago politicking is getting what you want through force.  Whether implied or overt is of little matter, physical or financial isn’t a concern either.  You pay your bribes and ‘fees’, you get what you want.  You don’t, and you have inspectors out the ying-yang finding fault in everything you’re doing (and extorting commensurate fines ruining you economically or shutting you down completely) or your property gets damaged some way or another – or you or your acquaintances get embarrassing info leaked…

    Political opponents?  Ruin them.  Fiscally, personally, it doesn’t matter.  The important thing is to maintain power – because it you don’t have power you lose influence and suddenly all the folks who you’ve kept down over the years come back haunt you.

    Keep your opponents separated.  Keep them apart, keep them silent.  Have the media ignore them, shout them down if you can’t keep ‘em out of the media completely, misstate what their campaigning points are, deride and ridicule them. (Worked for Palin, didn’t it? Get a comedienne on, have her say stupid stuff, attribute it to Palin, and there ya go!)  Don’t let them get their story out – you control the media, after all.

    It’s worked pretty well on a city-sized scale.  Yeah, everyone knew there was corruption and graft going on, but as long as you spread it around enough so everyone got a bit then nobody kicked too much.

    Who’d have thought it wouldn’t work on a national scale for long?
