President Obama can't run on his record. Everything Obama and the Democrats have done has resulted in failure. Their response is that they think they need to spend even more money.
Failures. The entire liberal left is populated by failures. So Obama and the Democrats are on a search and destroy mission.
What else is new?
This means the Democrats will politicize everything.
What else is new?
They attacked Sarah Palin in ways that nobody has ever seen before - nearly all of their accusations were false - but the sheep believed much of it as the liberals expected.
I still have people say to me, "Palin is an idiot. She said she could see Russia from her house."
Sarah Palin never said that. Tina Fey did, while impersonating Palin on a Saturday Night Live skit.
Palin may still yet run for President. She'd be a shoe-in landslide win if she did, but I don't know if she is prepared to put her family through the grinder of leftist attacks again.
Michelle Bachmann is running, though. And it looks like Michelle Bachmann may have a serious chance to do well, and with her Tea Party ties, she frightens the hell out of the liberal left. So... the personal attacks began.
It's not like the Democrats can debate the issues, or anything.
Newsweek magazine even recently tagged Bachmann as the Queen of Rage in their campaign of personal destruction, and then put a picture of her on their cover that some call "crazy eyes."
Stop any video of anybody at any point, and someone in the still is bound to look crazy. When we are not posing, we have those unflattering moments in our lives. Newsweek searched real hard, and found that Bachmann "crazy eyes" pic they wanted.
They must really be afraid of her to go through that much work.
The attack on Bachmann will probably backfire, however. People hate the media more than they hate the cockroaches of Washington, and especially hate it when they feel like they are being manipulated by the media.
Now that the liberal Democrats think that they have sufficiently destroyed Bachmann, they are moving to their next target. Now, the Democrats are zeroing in on Mitt Romney.
According to the Politico, the Obama team is preparing to launch a ferocious personal assault on Mitt Romney’s character and business background. Their reason for doing whatever it takes to destroy Romney? They are figuring he may likely be the GOP nominee. GOP leaders always get the personal destruction treatment from the Democrats. That is how the liberals work.
This is the modus operandi of the Democrats, because they know their policies are unpopular with the population. They know that they have no successful record to run on. They can't win on anything except eliminating the competition.
I don't know if to call the liberal democrats dirtbags, or cowards. Perhaps statist, Marxist bastards will work best.
What's funny about it is that Obama thinks he is the smartest guy in the room, and he is the least qualified idiot in any room. His speeches and press conferences are becoming a bunch of empty cliches. Even his buddies over at the New York Times are asking, "What happened to Obama?"
What is really scary is that there are some liberals out there that actually think Obama is not liberal enough - that Obama is too far to the right.
The liberals that believe Obama is not liberal enough are some deranged individuals.
You know, like Michael Moore, who has tweeted that Obama, as a result of the S&P downgrade, ought to be a ruthless dictator: "Have some guts and arrest the CEO of S&P."
