During the Republican presidential primary season in the Winter of 2012 there was much infighting, some political gaffes and several vicious attack ads by one candidate against the other.
And of course the Lib Media suggested that we were all supposed to enjoy the conflict and imagine that it was going to kill the Republican party, and that Obama naturally was going to win re-election easily.
But now those primaries are over, Mitt Romney is unofficially the nominee and the infighting has switched to the Democrat side. And it is getting vicious as polls show more and more disenchantment with Obama. Example: Republicans scored yet another huge political victory in GOP governor Scott Walker’s recall election in Wisconsin on June 5.
So is the tide shifting? Is all the disarray and infighting now switching to the Democrats?
Yes. And as the GOP unites quietly behind Romney – something deemed impossible by conventional media wisdom just six month ago – the Dem cat-fighting is going to get worse. Much worse. Because the Democrats are losing election after election and now they are seeing that Obama easily could lose and drag down Democrats all over the nation.
Look at Wisconsin which went for Obama by 14 points in 2008. Yet Walker won by 7 points. That is a 21 point shift. Amazing. But grim news if you are a Democrat.
And when Democrats lose they get very angry and they start going after each other and blaming each other and self-destructing.
Some Republicans are so accustomed to thinking that Democrats are invincible that they can hardly adjust to the fact that the Dems are imploding and that Republicans are winning everything in sight. Even Time magazine’s liberal Mark Halperin reported that:
With five months until Election Day, Barack Obama faces a grim new reality: Republicans now believe Mitt Romney can win, and Democrats believe Obama can lose … The failure to unseat Wisconsin's Republican governor Scott Walker in a recall election was another bad sign for Democrats since it will rev up conservatives nationwide, including the kind of millionaires who gave big bucks to Walker's effort
…Veteran Democratic strategists from previous presidential bids and on Capitol Hill now wonder if the Obama re-election crew is working with the right message … The White House remains on a rough political trajectory, with a potentially adverse Supreme Court decision on the Obama health care law looming, additional bad economic news from Europe coming and more worrisome polling pending …
Thus the bad news all appears to be on the Democrat side after the media cheerfully highlighted every conflict and gaffe in the GOP primary. And this shift is causing the Democrats to blow a gasket. Rest assured that the Dems are flipping out behind closed doors. Breaking stuff! Shouting! Fighting!
And when the Supreme Court rules against ObamaCare later this month, as is widely expected, it is going to send liberals absolutely into orbit. There will be smoke coming out of Nancy Pelosi’s ears.
A perfect example of Democrat meltdown can be seen in the words and actions of Bill Clinton, who is regarded as the most savvy figure on the Democrat side. But Clinton seems to be turning into a bumbling old man and has only managed to add fuel to the Democrat infighting fire. He recently praised Mitt Romney and then said that the lower Bush-era tax rates should be extended.
You can just imagine the yelling in Democrat offices across the nation over these two remarks which both sound like they could have been spoken by a Republican.
Then, after being scolded about the tax comment by the White House, Clinton apologized saying that he “regrets …this stirring up” and is “very sorry” for supporting the Bush-era tax rates, adding that “I’m very sorry for what happened. I thought something had to be done on the fiscal cliff before the election …I support (Obama’s) position (on the Bush tax rates), and I think on the merits, upper-income people will have to contribute to long-term debt reduction.”
Despite his mangled syntax Clinton swerved into the truth when he said “I thought something had to be done on the fiscal cliff before the election.” Because Obama is already taking us over the cliff with increasing numbers of Americans believing so, while the so-called Taxmageddon Day next January 1 is going to impose massive tax increases that are going to further suck the air out of the economy.
So indeed we have the second most prominent Democrat in America covertly agreeing with the Republican position. This is absolute apocalypse for Democrats.
Politico.com also reported that:
Clinton also denied he is undermining Obama – as some Republicans have claimed – and said he supports the president’s reelection.
Wow. Kaboom. Just that language – ‘Clinton also denied he is undermining Obama’ – is setting off alarm bells all over Democrat America because it exposes that there indeed is a widely-held perception that Clinton wants Obama defeated. And this exists not among Republicans, really, but among many Democrats. This is more fuel for the Democrats’ internal war.
Even savvy political commentator Dick Morris said bluntly that “Bill Clinton does not want Barack Obama to win.” And Morris should know. He used to be a Clinton advisor and he knows Clinton well.
This is Democrat war, friends, war!
After Clinton’s apology interview about the tax issue top Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod said, “I’m not asking for an apology from Bill Clinton.”
So there you go. Why should he even be asking for an apology in the first place from the #2 Democrat in America?
Because there is disarray, confusion and war in the Democrat ranks. And the Dems need to make peace if Obama is to have any chance at re-election, which more and more Democrats believe rightfully that he does not.
