Hilarious: Democrats Hope Obama Meeting Means More Humility in 2014

Posted by on Jan 15, 2014 at 8:58 am

Wait, more humility? This would imply he’s ever demonstrated any humility.

Frustrated Senate Democrats hope a meeting set to take place on Wednesday with President Obama will help them turn a corner with a White House they see as too distant and insular.

Aides say the new faces joining the president’s inner circle suggest a possible new humility following a year that saw Obama hammered over the botched rollout of his healthcare law, a series of administrative controversies and an aborted attempt to launch a military strike against Syria.

Controversies? Weird, but a couple of lanes close on the George Washington Bridge and it’s a full-blown “scandal” according to the liberal media. Obama sics the IRS on his opponents? Merely a controversy. Four dead in Benghazi? Meh, just a controversy.

The White House staff shake-up includes the return of Washington veterans John Podesta and Phil Schiliro, as well as the promotion of a longtime aide to Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), Katie Beirne Fallon, to White House legislative affairs director.

Democrats have repeatedly expressed their annoyance in recent months about the lack of contact from the other side of Pennsylvania Avenue, from both the White House staff and the president himself.

“Let’s put it this way, it couldn’t get any worse,” one senior Democratic aide said of the contact last year. “The communication was terrible, and the overall strategy wasn’t much better.”

A shame nobody is man enough to put their name on thta.

“The White House obviously recognized there was a problem, and I think the shake-up is an indication of good things to come,” one senior Democratic aide said. “I think they recognize that, if we lost the Senate, it would be game over.”

Smell the fear.

He’s a nonentity almost,” said another aide, who argued Obama missed an opportunity to move forward with innovative proposals after his reelection victory in 2012. “For some reason, his lame-duckness started very quickly, but maybe that will change,” the aide said.

A nonentity? Ouch.

    Two things are very clear from this article.

    1) The Democrat party not only expects to lose the Senate, they expect a bloodbath worse than 2010 that will essentially wipe them out as a viable political party. They are done for and they know it. They are 12 months away from being reduced to Whig or Bull Moose status as a regional party limited to half a dozen large states.

    2) They are trying to put 100% of the blame for this on Obamee. They believe the next three years are damage control, pure and simple. They don’t understand that the buffoon from Kenya has ended not only the Democrat Party, but liberalism itself. Never again will government be allowed to be even tried as the solution to our problems.

    But first they are going to fight like hell. The Senate election could well be the dirtiest in our history. They are already clamoring to undue any honest efforts to ensure that only qualified Americans vote. They will scream racism. They will cheat with everything they’ve got.

    In addition rather the voter fraud and dirty tricks, Fred, they are seriously pushing for amnesty Tonya pump up Democrat voter rolls and intimidating weak-kneed RINOs to commit political suicide by going along with it.
