An interview with a Democrat Washington insider described as “a longtime Washington D.C. insider, and former advisor to the Obama election campaign and transition team …” describes the “administration in crisis, and a president increasingly withdrawn from the job of President.”
Whomever the Democrat insider might be, his comments are consistent with what many of us sense. He does not believe another four years would be in the best interests of America, or perhaps more accurately, the Democrat Party. When confronted, here is the question and his answer:
But would another four years of an Obama presidency be the best thing for America? (Long pause) Now that is a much more interesting question right there, and a question I think more and more Democrat Party insiders are asking themselves these days, myself included. I am going to come right out and say it – No. Obama is not up to the job of being president. He simply doesn’t seem to care about the work involved. You want to know what? Obama is lazy. He really is. And it is getting worse and worse. Would another four years of Obama be the best thing for America? No it would not. What this country needs is a president who is focused on the job more than on themselves. Obama is not that individual. I actually hope he doesn’t run again. Looking back, as much fun as the campaign in 2008 was, Hillary Clinton should have been the nominee. Hillary was ready to be president. Obama was not ready. He had never lost a campaign. Everything was handed to him. He doesn’t really understand the idea of work – real, hard, get your heart and soul into it work. And frankly, that is very disappointing to a whole lot of us…
Even from a Democrat perspective, Obama is seen as an immature man-child. Despite the swooning press, he is not considered overly bright by those that know him. Read more here.
Politicians are little more than parasites. They live off the host — productive citizens. Few pols have principles beyond staying in office, regardless of the cost. For Democrats, Obama was a meal-ticket. His philosophy of government may have been extreme for some, but he was useful. He was “The One” that could lead the party back to their rightful leadership, control of the country and glory.
This charismatic charlatan charmed the country as well as his Party. The political parasites glommed onto him like flies on horsesh*t. He was their savior. The One would return the party to greatness.
Buoyed by early success, Democrat politicians jumped aboard what they believed to be a program sold by a phenomenal politician who possessed magical powers. This winner could sell anything to the rubes in the body politic. Unfortunately Obama’s vision, buttressed by extremists in the party like Pelosi and Reid, was pushed too far. It was too radical for the American people.
Like hypnotized lemmings, the party members followed this Pied Piper. Their arrival at the cliff and mass demise is estimated to occur on November 2.
The next two years will be hard on Obama. As much as he is hated by freedom-lovers in the country, it is likely that he will be hated more by his remaining Democrats. The Party is in tatters. It is in danger of disappearing as a political entity as a result of following this false prophet. This Pied Piper, instead of getting the American people to follow, led Democrat politicians to their political death. The survivors will not forget, nor will they continue to march to the tune of this false savior.
We are about to witness politics at its ugliest. It will be Republicans against Democrats of course. But that will be less intriguing than the Democrats against Obama. Political survival trumps loyalty. If Obama is as ineffectual as I believe he will be, he will be devoured by angry Democrats anxious to avenge the political deaths of their comrades.
What Democrats, besides Hillary, will challenge him in 2012? Will he even stand for re-election?
For political junkies the fun is about to begin.
