If you’ve paid even a minute’s attention to the belligerent Democrats the past few days you can only conclude they plan on going down with the ship. They have no choice since they own this mess all by their lonesome. Millions of Americans have lost their health insurance and all they get is the middle finger from Obama and the Democrats. And once news like this spreads there will be widespread outrage. So go ahead, Obama, keep talking trash. He doesn’t realize it but the ship is sinking.
This is what happens when the two parties ruling Washington lose touch with America and pander to their crazy-extreme bases: President Obama’s competency and personality ratings are nose-diving, according to a new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll; barely a sliver of the public thinks highly of the Republican Party; and two-thirds of Americans want to replace their own member of Congress.
Peter Hart, a Democratic pollster who conducted the survey with Republican Bill McInturff, called this a “Howard Beale moment,” a reference to the famous rant from the 1976 movie Network.
“We’re mad as hell,” Hart said, “and we’re not going to take it anymore.”
Privately, party strategists agree. On Obama, a Democratic operative who works with the White House emailed me to say: “It’s his Titanic moment. He’s hit the iceberg, but they keep acting like no water is coming into the ship.”
I guess they have to lump Republicans in since it was just two weeks ago the obituaries had been written. Since then Obama’s been cratering in the polls as people realize what a scam ObamaCare is. Ignore the media and focus on the problem: Obama.
