Democrats walk out – again

Published

on

Barack H. Obama gave one of the worst State of the Union addresses of his career.

Last night, de facto President Barack H. Obama campaigned for Mary Burke, candidate for Governor in Wisconsin. And he suffered a repeat of an embarrassment last week in Maryland. People walked out of the venue as soon as he started to speak. Democrats walking out on Obama. Again. Why might that be?

Democrats walking out

Recall the last time Democrats walked out on Obama. This happened at a campaign rally for Anthony Brown, in his bid to advance to the Governorship of Maryland. And by the way: The Daily Caller reports on a new poll on the governor’s race in Maryland. According to this poll (by Gonzales Research), Brown’s Republican opponent closed to within two points of Brown. Thus Brown lost nine points of his lead. (Watch the video at this link. See also this report from The Washington Post. According to them, Gonzales Research do not have a partisan reputation. The Real Clear Politics poll average still has Brown in the lead by 9.7 points, down from 11 a week ago.)

Now consider the Wisconsin rally. Obama began to speak. Then, according to Mike Lowe, who saw it happen,

Video footage of the event captured Obama still telling people they could still vote. As if anyone ever said they could not vote.

What do Democrats really think of Obama?

Not much, when they walk out of not only one campaign rally, but two, when he starts to talk. But Democrats in Congress and other elective offices do more than walk out. Now they speak freely, to say Obama has failed as a Party leader and as President. Here’s a sample from Garth Kant of WND:

  • “It may be that President Obama’s disastrous leadership will be the wake-up call w e needed.”
  • “Let me tell you, the White House, when they look down the front lawn the last person they want to see coming is me.”
  • “Our president is so disengaged. I mean, it’s all pizza and, you know, pool and political cash. He has checked out as being president, as a leader.”
  • “Particularly for women, I don’t think he makes them feel safe.”
  • (“The Obama administration) protected Wall Street. Not families who were losing their homes. Not people who lost their jobs. And it happened over and over and over.”

Note that last: “The Obama administration protected Wall Street.” Obama sold the Democrats, and the country, on an anti-Wall Street message. But Wall Street, or at least one institution (Goldman Sachs), backed him. So here’s one reason Democrats are walking away from Obama: he doesn’t deliver. In this he recalls these lines from the libretto of the musical Evita:

You were supposed to have been immortal!

That’s all they wanted! Not much to ask for!

But in the end you could not deliver!

And how about the third comment? “…disengaged…pizza and…pool and political cash. He has checked out as being president, as a leader.” He engaged the country well enough in his first two years. Until he sacrificed the House of Representatives for his “signature legislative accomplishment,” Obamacare. Millions of cancellation notices later, that promise already rings hollow. It will ring even hollower after the election, when premiums more than double. (Note: you don’t have to stand for that. The law actually allows faith-based expense-sharing ministries, so long as they’ll help you with most of the expenses the law demands.)

The fourth comment bodes the worst for Obama. Democrats know it, or they wouldn’t mention it. “He [does not make women] feel safe.” Obama sold himself to women, especially single women, as a substitute husband. He, or at least the government, would take care of them, so they need not depend on a man. But Obama played pimp more than husband. Now women sense danger. From a disease that could liquefy their insides, and a fanatical new nation-state with a policy of throwing stones at them. And what does Obama do? He hits the golf links. (Or he steps off the links long enough to speak against quarantine, and even to insult those who believe the threats.)

Maybe that’s why Democrats walk out on Obama. Because another think you can gather from Real Clear Politics: Obama has likely lost them the Senate. And he lost it by falling down on the job, by anyone’s standard.

Will Obama campaign again for another candidate? With six days left before the election, probably not. He wouldn’t want to risk proving out Ian Fleming’s maxim:

Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, and the third time it’s enemy action.

Or, as in this case, a trend.

Obama is the worst President. Ever.

Lon Hosford

I do not know how his students survived. He has no humility so when he speaks is aways down at you. He props at bit by acting like he speaks for others, but it is packaged in superiority wordage. He has recently tried some humility but does not know how to do it and it has backfired. Generally when a conservative express humility, the press wolfs show up to capitalize on it. When BO does it, they hold their noses and look the other way.

But I have found him a platitudinous bore that you begin to gag after listening to him for a few minutes. Now after 6 years he still spitting out the same crapola in a sense he just arrived on the scene and has not been impacted by the mountains of resistance to his policies for solving problems let alone the ineptitude of children pretending to be great leaders when they are really just highly educated, in the academic sense, children in adult bodies.

This is why sending children to decades of school was a poor direction for country. They are isolated from reality and protected from bumps on the nose and when they arrive into the world they only have corrupted idealism and lack of a sense of reality, and an inability on how to get feedback and make corrective course changes.

This is why other than the press paint, BO will not have any substantive record as a President in history other than his race, unless he lucks out in the next 2 years by coincidence in being in the job and taking credit for something he had nothing to do with and will not be something that he believes in.

And to his race as being a hallmark of his Presidency, it may be well written in history, this is the first system of government that allowed its people to transition from an economic system dependent on slavery to one where the indentured race became President. The irony will be he and his ilk despise this system of government and want to corrupt it and destroy it.
