The economy stinks, Obamacare is a disaster, Putin’s smirking at us while he does whatever he wants… and the most powerful man in the free world is mewling like a fussy baby. Why is everybody so mean?
President Obama complained Thursday that Democrats “get clobbered” in midterm elections, blaming a “toxic” atmosphere in Washington for suppressing key Democratic constituencies.
“The challenge is that our politics in Washington have become so toxic that people just lose faith,” Obama told a group of top Democratic donors gathered at the home of former Miami Heat star Alonzo Mourning. “They say, ‘Y’know what, it doesn’t matter, I’m not that interested, I’m not gonna vote.’ And that’s especially true during the midterms…”
“…In midterms, we get clobbered, either because we don’t think it’s important or because we get so discouraged about what’s happening in Washington that we think it’s not worth our while.”
OUT: Hope and Change! Yes We Can!
IN: Guys? Anybody?
I wonder if maybe Democrats get clobbered in midterms because the people whose lives are damaged by stupid Democratic policies, and people who are angry that they believed stupid Democratic lies, show up at the polls to throw the bums out. Could that be it?
Naaaahhh. It’s because everything’s so “toxic.” Which has nothing at all to do with Obama’s divisive rhetoric, of course. He’s the real victim here. Poor, poor Obama.
It’s only March, and the Dems are already panicking about November. Good.
