According to most analysts, the stage is set for big Republican wins in November’s midterm elections. Despite what many consider a largely uninspired GOP roster, the disastrous policies of this administration will likely lead millions to seek an alternative at the polls.
During a recent fundraising stop in Miami, however, Barack Obama trotted out some ridiculous justifications for the all-but-guaranteed upcoming Democrat losses. Naturally, none of his comments reflected his own tanking approval ratings and the public’s utter disdain toward his healthcare law.
Indeed, he actually suggested that “the problem is not that the American people disagree with us on the issues.”
He contended that the real obstacle Democrats face is a citizenry that has lost interest in politics. Obama implicitly blamed Republicans for fomenting a “toxic” environment in D.C. that leads people to “just lose faith and finally they just say, you know what, I’m not interested, I’m not going to bother, I’m not going to vote.”
Furthermore, he resorted to using the ubiquitous rhetorical crutch of race in mitigating the midterm massacre.
“During presidential elections,” he reasoned, “young people vote, women are more likely to vote, blacks, Hispanics more likely to vote.”
This November, he posited, polling places will be filled with white men anxious to support Republicans.
Obama said that when “a more representative cross-section of America gets out there … we do pretty well in presidential elections.”
On the other hand, leftists “get clobbered” in midterms, he continued, “either because we don’t think it’s important or we’ve become so discouraged about what’s happening in Washington that we think it’s not worth our while.”
In reality, of course, more Americans – regardless of color or gender – are leaving the Democrat plantation these days because it’s intrusive policies are proving detrimental to the pursuit of the American dream. Obama, though, urged his remaining supporters to pony up even more money to support the failed cause of his administration and its supporters in the House and Senate.
“We need Nancy Pelosi as speaker,” he suggested, offering a similar endorsement for Harry Reid to retain his current position as Senate majority leader.
The desperation among leftists is palpable as November approaches. Though Obama is primarily responsible for leading the devolution of his party, he continues his tired approach of blaming others for the failures he fosters.
