Dems Beginning To Fear That Obama is Unelectable

According to a report in the Daily Telegraph, many Democrats are beginning to wake up and smell the lousy economy. Not only are the party insiders beginning to doubt Obama's re-election prospects but they are beginning to reconsider whether Hillary Clinton would have made a superior president. In the words of the great political commentator Homer Simpson "Doh!"

One big reason is for the party malaise was Obama's performance during the debt ceiling debate. The party faithful was upset that the President agreed to widespread cuts in government spending without winning any revenue increases in exchange.
Finding it hard to defend his often listless and repetitive performances, Democratic strategists and commentators are privately agreeing with Republicans and comparing Mr Obama to Jimmy Carter, another Democrat who remains the post-war benchmark for a failed president.

"He is a do-gooder at heart," said Morris Reid, a Washington consultant and former Clinton official. "He thinks everyone has the same agenda to do the right thing, but other people don't have the same agenda. Their agenda is to score points and get their party re-elected.
They also feel that Obama does not have same "killer instinct" that the Clinton's have.  Both as a Chief Executive and a politician Obama doesn't like to get down in the mud and fight.

"This is the downside of him not being terribly political like Bill Clinton was. Bill Clinton woke up every day relishing this kind of fight, and Hillary is just a tougher person. The Clintons are much more combative, they are always ready to go to Defcon 1 ('war is imminent' state)."
....."The notion everyone is talking about is 'is he Jimmy Carter or will he be a one-term president'," he said.
Yikes, the GOP has been making the Carter comparison for months, it's kind of weird to know that the Democrats are starting to agree.  It's almost as if "they've lost that lovin' feeling."

Gary Pearce, a Democratic strategist in North Carolina, a swing state Mr Obama is likely to struggle to retain in 2012, said: "Democrats are worried. He looks weak, he doesn't say anything that grabs you, and people are looking for some kind of magic."

He said some activists were asking "do we need someone tougher to fight the tea party?" "You see a yearning for a Bill Clinton-type approach and Hillary would reflect that. Obama is just a different political animal, he is a low-key guy," he added.
Pearce is wrong, it's not that he is a low-key guy, it's that Obama believes he is the "idea guy," he doesn't like to fight in the trenches.


A 2012 primary challenge by Mrs Clinton is currently regarded as unlikely, but growing number of party activists and old hands are hoping that she changes her mind.

On his nightly television show, liberal host Bill Maher dismissed Mr Obama as a Republican, and asked his panel if Mrs Clinton would have made a better president.

"Yes," replied astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, an African American astrophysicist and broadcaster, adding that the Secretary of State would have been "a more effective negotiator in the halls of Congress."
Some Democrats are even feeling "snookered" that Obama fooled them with his brilliant 2008 campaign
An article in the New York Times by Drew Westen, a professor of psychology at Emory University and a specialist in political messaging, summarized the dismay at Mr Obama's performance and was rapidly circulated online by liberals.

"Those of us who were bewitched by his eloquence on the campaign trail chose to ignore some disquieting aspects of his biography: that he had accomplished very little before he ran for president," he wrote.
 Even worse, they are realizing that Barack Obama has accomplished very little after he was inaugurated as president also.

Is this wishful thinking? My guess is that he's like a religious figure for too many. Others fear condemnation if they don't follow those crowds. Secret ballots? some can't keep their own secret. I have a poll on my Shiloh Musings sidebar asking what people think of the issue.

> he had accomplished very little before he ran for president

I remember a discussion I had with a liberal co-worker; the topic was Sarah Palin's lack of experience. It was surreal. I pointed out that Palin had, after all, been a governor and so at least had some experience as a chief executive. My co-worker waved his hand and replied that Obama had run his campaign.

I said... what!?

Utterly unfazed, he repeated his proposition.

So now, three years into this mess of a presidency, it suddenly occurs to the liberals that Obama was inexperienced?

Well, who knew? Besides, I mean, anyone who had not drunk the liberal Kool-Aid.

"He is a do-gooder at heart,"!

I would find it much more credible that someone is a "do-gooder" when they spend their own money to do good instead of other people's money.
Also, take heart in the fact that while Democrats may fear Obama won't be re-elected, we conservatives revel in that fact.

JorgXMcKie said...

They were "snookered" and "hoodwinked " and all those other terms Obama used.

I wonder when they'll start to realize that maybe he just isn't that bright?

the wolf said...

It is revealing that they make an unflattering comparison to Jimmy Carter. That's the first I've seen a Dem admit that Carter was an awful president.

What does one say to the Dems who are finally acknowledging what we've said all along (e.g., my 9 year old has more experience creating wealth & managing a business)? No shit Sherlock?

RebeccaH said...

The notion that Democrats are feeling they were fooled by Obama's 2008 campaign is rich. The facts about Obama were always there, but the Dems ignored, obfuscated, and covered up. They were fooled because they wanted to be fooled.

The Ghost said...

they all think his problem is that he's not tough enough ?

maybe they havn't noticed but everytime he "wins" one (Stimulus, ObamaCare) their party moves down in the polls ?

maybe just maybe its the ideas that are lacking not the salesman ...

Democrats are living on another planet. Unfortunately, the Democrat party leadership and elected politicians have become socialist-Marxist in their ideology, although most of them will disagree.

Democrats are anti Capitalism, anti Free Markets and pro-LARGE GOVERNMENT - a disaster for a free people.

Steve White said...

If the Democrats now agree with those who claim that Obama is like Jimmy Carter, perhaps we should now claim that Obama is like James Buchanan -- in six months the Democrats will be in agreement.

Wouldn't that be fun?

It wasn't just HIS allegedly brilliant 2008 campaign. Said campaign was waged less by his forces than by the MSM, which went into full fawning-over-celebrity mode while touting his 'virtues', and concealing his blatantly obvious inexperience, hard-left politics and associates, and lack of any productive work as law review editor, professor, State Senator and US Senator.

All that, recall, after the MSM's six-year negative campaign against his presidential predecessor, disguised as 'news' articles.

The snookered Democrats wilfully failed to examine the man, instead behaving like a cargo cult in hopes of a new Messiah. Now that the man has established a track record, it's no wonder that by comparison with their 'hopes' of a 'change', that track record does make him look unelectable.

barack was never a law professor; he was a teaching assistant. this is just another example of the 'he is brilliant' meme that, somehow, manages to survive to this day despite all the evidence to the contrary.
