Having done irreparable damage to his party the past seven years, why not just go Full Obama and finish them off. He doesn’t even realize his hatred for America has left his party in ruins, but who are we to intervene while your enemy destroys themselves?
President Barack Obama’s Syrian refugee program is driving a wedge through the Democratic Party, pitting liberal stalwarts against nervous Senate candidates and some senior lawmakers.
Newsflash: He doesn’t have to run again, so he doesn’t give a rat’s ass about those who do.
With the White House scrambling to defend its resettlement program and Republicans pressing to “pause” or even eliminate it, liberals were alarmed earlier this week when third-ranking Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York expressed openness to a time-out on resettling Syrian refugees. Meanwhile, Democrats battling in competitive races from Ohio to New Hampshire to Nevada are voicing concerns with the vetting process for refugees fleeing Syria, a nation millions have left since a civil war began four years ago.
Losing a partisan hack like Schumer would cause sober, rational people to step back and ask what the problem might be. Instead, Obama continues with his johad against the GOP. He has no other playbook available.
New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan, who is challenging Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) in her bid for reelection, urged the federal government to stop accepting Syrian refugees until the process is reviewed. Nevada Senate candidate Catherine Cortez Masto wants U.S. intelligence officials to sign off on the vetting process before admitting more refugees. And former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, aiming to unseat GOP Sen. Rob Portman in Ohio, joined the chorus Tuesday, calling for a “short-term pause” in the resettlement program.
Wow, who knew the Democrat party was filled with racist, Islamophobic bigots? Meanwhile, they’re shattering the projection meter:
“We expect Republicans to rely on cynicism, fear-mongering and intolerance,” said Frank Sharry, executive director of the immigrant advocacy group America’s Voice. “We expect Democrats to stand up to xenophobia and stand up for our core values. We’ll be watching very, very closely to see if they do.”
Not a day goes by where Democrats aren’t fear-mongering and displaying their intolerance for opinions that differ from theirs, but they just spout this crap as if it’s fact. Even what little polling there is shows an overwhelming surge of Americans who want a stop to Obama’s madness, yet they forge on, inventing strawmen like the NRA and babbling about widows and orphans. It’s pathetic.
“To rush on this is a big mistake,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the top Democrat on the Intelligence committee. “I may well [agree with a pause]. I need some time to know from an intelligence perspective, what is the situation? This may be a solution without a cause.”
But the willingness to entertain a pause in the resettlement program from influential senators such as Schumer and Feinstein, as well as the outright calls to do so from Senate candidates, is colliding with the views of Democratic senators who said the program shouldn’t be the target in the aftermath of the Paris attacks.
We urge Democrats to race down the path of no return. They’ll suffer massivc damage next November, all the while the guy who’s decimated their party prepares to leave office as an imaginary conquering hero.
