QotD, The Democrats Have Realized Their Major Problem edition.

I was hoping that they wouldn’t figure this out for a little while longer:

“It’s a consistent pattern where [Barack Obama] says he’s going to do something, says he’s really going to fight for it, and then buckles the moment there’s any opposition,” said one veteran Democratic strategist. “It’s like the kiss of death if he wants if you for a job.”

It’s been very useful for us, you see.

PS: In related news… I managed to watch Barack Obama’s full speech today (something that not even MSNBC could bear to do, reportedly), and I have to say: if I had hired the President to make a speech designed to stiffen the spines of quote-unquote ‘obstructionist’ Republican legislators and gotten that? I would have not only paid the invoice on time; I would have added a performance bonus.  I knew that the President was politically tone-deaf, but this was embarrassing.




“Loser.” #wirecall

I try to save this for special occasions, these days.  Scott Walker managing to more or less equal the entire Democratic field, combined, in the WI special election primary*?

Special.

Loser, Beck

*Seriously, that should not have happened.  For a guy in a non-contested primary to match the rest of the opposition party’s opposing field is an indication that the Democrats are going to have problems.
