The New Hampshire Union Leader Gets with the metaphor I have been using here for quite some time. They mention the events of 1876 at the Little Bighorn River and the Democrats in November:
Peering from behind his dead horse at the charging Sioux, Lt. Col. George Custer might have thought to himself, “This doesn’t look good.” President Obama, peeking over his golf clubs at the American political landscape two months before this fall’s elections, might understandably form the same thought.
— In Massachusetts this summer, Democratic candidates in swing districts are portraying themselves as fiscal conservatives who oppose high taxes and runaway government spending, The Boston Globe reported last week.
— Democrats in Washington don’t want to talk about the bills they passed since Obama took office. “In an effort coordinated with the White House, congressional leaders are urging Democrats to focus less on bragging about what they have done — a landmark health-care law, a sweeping overhaul of Wall Street regulation and other far-reaching policy changes — and more on efforts to fix the economy and on the perils of Republican control of Congress,” the Los Angeles Times reported earlier this month.
I have never seen anything like the political landscape as it stands now, two months away from election day. I know the Obama wing of the media is trying desperately to pump some semblance of life into the Democrats and are twisting every story when they are not telling outright lies.
I suspect that election day is going to be a lot – a real lot – worse for the Democrats than the “analysis” of the left-leaning media is letting on.
I fully expect some “safe” seats for the Democrats to fall to their challengers.
The protestations by Democrats that everything will be fine for them are sounding increasingly desperate. The “Recovery Summer” has become a bad punchline as the economy appears to be tanking. I hear people who have never before expressed political views to me who are right up on the latest political news – and are furious at Washington.
Those people fully intend to vote.
And they do not intend to vote for Democrats.
Remember A vote for any Democrat – at any level of government – is an endorsement of what they have done to us already and are trying to expand upon.
Take back the municipal governments, take back the state legislatures, take back the state house, take back Congress – both houses. We cannot vote against the won this time – but we can take out his enablers, allies and would be tools.
