...the White House is in over its head, isolated, insular, arrogant and clueless about how to get along with or persuade members of Congress, the media, the business community or working-class voters. This view is held by Fox News pundits, executives and anchors at the major old-media outlets, reporters who cover the White House, Democratic and Republican congressional leaders and governors, many Democratic business people and lawyers who raised big money for Obama in 2008, and even some members of the Administration just beyond the inner circle.
So writes Mark Halperin, editor-at-large and senior political analyst for TIME was also political director of ABC news for 6 years. Halperin is no conservative. Let me put that right out there.
For him to write such a scathing piece on Barry Sotero's incompetence is truly something to behold. In fact it is breath-taking to see how quickly the Democratic party has imploded during the last 6 months.
Administration officials are leaving the White House like rats deserting a ship. Democratic seats that 5 years ago were solid blue are now in play.
Remember the 1994 GOP take-over? Forget that one - that was peanuts. This take-over may be as big as 1894! Even the Brits are picking up on what a disaster Obama and his policies are. Here are 5 reasons why this presidency is in a tail-spin.
Recent polling shows that George Bush is now AS POPULAR as Barack Hussein Obama.
The independents of this country are waking up. They see what's going on around them: record foreclosures, record bankruptcies, government expenditures going through the roof, TARP, Stimulus I and II, S-chip, Socialized medicine, the takeover of private industries.... all this is Tyranny, plain and simple.
The healthcare boondoggle was probably the biggest insult; the government has no right to compel a private citizen into purchasing a product. It is blatantly unconstitutional. 70% of the American people didn't want it - did that stop Barry Sotero from pushing it through? Hell no.
And THAT is why people are so pissed off. It is the economy, stupid - someone should whisper that into Obama's elephantine ears.
Ah, November 2nd is election day...please get your friends and families to the polls. This is a desperate hour because the Democrats are already reaching deep into their bag of dirty tricks.
