According to the NY Times, Obama's "political advisers" are thinking of using an ad campaign to try and denounce the GOP by saying it has been taken over by Tea Party extremists.
Um, isn't that the last thing you want to do? Doesn't this give instant credibility to the growing influence of the Tea Party? If they have "taken over" the GOP, wouldn't that indicate this is no longer just a fringe movement?
Isn't Obama's reversal from optimist and restorer of hope, to negative Nancy finger-pointer, a large reason why his approval ratings are plummeting?
Are the liberal elite so self-absorbed and stuck up their own asses they don't realize it's this kind of blame game attitude that is empowering the right?
Grassroots efforts, led by the optimistic and those alienated with Bush's policies is what led to Obama's triumph, and now, witnessing a similar grassroots effort on the right, they're going to implement the same losing strategy the GOP did in '06 and '08?
So let's get this straight: Obama wants to denounce the GOP by saying they've been taken over by the Tea Party. The same Tea Party, whose mission, more than just about anything, is to reduce taxes. It's a good thing the Democratic Party doesn't have these types of tax-cutting extremists in their ranks, otherwise, Obama might look stupid.
Oh, wait, I forgot.
Dear Obama voters:
You know how your critics call you pretentious self-righteous jackasses that can't see night from day?
Well this is why.
Obama is so self-absorbed in his own perceived righteousness that he can't even tell when he's pissing off his own supporters. He's either that arrogant, or so dense as a politician, that he doesn't even realize when his policies are pushing his own voters to the other side. Or, at least, to stay home. And this Obama voters, is why the smarter liberals all wanted Hillary. She at least understands politics. All Obama seems to understand is the sound of his own voice.
Dear normal Democrats: I'm sorry you let your party get taken over by imbeciles. But it's your own damned fault for not standing up to these morons.
You know how the crazy right-wing has their religious nuts? You ever notice how when the GOP gets in power they don't actually ever do anything for them? Did they overturn Roe v Wade? No. Did they actually all together ban stem-cell research? No. Did they pass a gay marriage amendment? No. Did they really even talk about any of this stuff if it wasn't near election time? No. You know why? Because the GOP, for all their faults, aren't that dumb. Obama, however, is apparently that dumb. Or, that arrogant. Either way, that's why you're getting trounced in November. And that's why the Tea Party is getting bigger and bigger. It's your own damn fault. Maybe you'll learn from this and actually take the time next go around to try and get back in touch with the sentiments of your average American. Because the more you point fingers at people, instead of listening to them, the more they're going to turn their backs on you and tell you to piss off.
