I’ve spent a career in tech sales. Every so often an RFP comes along you really want your competitor to win: It is just too onerous and restricted to make a profit – let the other guy lose his shirt on it.
Obama has energized the Democrat Far Left base, but lost the Center, Independents and moderate Republicans (the coalition with which he won) in doing so. It looks like he’s going to go farther Left after the election, destroying any chance for the Dems gaining the Center and Independents.
He is outlaw-Far-Left now on immigration which, if the Stupid Party ever learns to play offense instead of only defense, can be played to minority voters as the Left depressing their wages and destroying their futures. Obama likely will try an Exec Order or three against guns after November, losing even more voters for Dems. And he’s about to force the most regressive tax ever, impoverishing millions more through the EPA, driving down minority turnout in 2016, and driving American back into a deep recession, and driving Black America into Depression; it’s what Progressive policies always do.
The Democrat Party is of neither interest nor concern to Obama. Taking it down as he build his Far-Left legacy won’t bother him – or Jarrett – at all. His voters and his media will sit silently as he does so because no one will attack the first Black president and keep minority voters (the same reason he will never be impeached).
Obama is leaving such huge messes in domestic and foreign policy that the smart thing for Dems may be to run a substandard candidate (Biden) let the GOP win, and yammer about how the GOP “fails” as it likely will take YEARS to clean out the Augean stables of DC, and the world won’t sit by (Russia, China, Iran, Al Qaeda) while we fight over how to do so.
Read that again: Not CLEAN OUT the stables, but FIGHT OVER HOW TO DO SO… accomplishing, again, nothing. The current parties & pols are NOT CAPABLE of cleaning up the mess they both have been creating since 1964.
And if the movers & shakers of the DNC can’t figure this out, their major donors certainly will. What Democrat candidate at this point is worth funding? None.
In 2020, after four years of attacking whoever wins the GOP nomination and the presidency in 2016, and four years of forgetting how bad Obama was, and four years of the Stupid Party in the White House and Congress, the country will be tired of the establishment GOP. And the Democrat-Media complex push will re-ignite for a woman, and there will be Elizabeth Warren.
Then Dems win in 2020, having spent 4 yrs attacking a white male GOP that will, if the senility of McCain (advancing military “solutions” to all problems) and the idiocy of Graham (now is NOT the time to pursue abortion and grab defeat from the jaws of victory), and their brain-dead voters, is any indication, will continue spending and coddling Big Business, and whining about immigration, taxes, Main Street, the Debt, and Big Gov, but not doing anything about them.
Perhaps the best hope for America is for a lot more Boomers (who still believe the MSM and vote as if it were the 1970s) to die off, and the Millennials to move the nation towards more liberty, by re-forming the core of both parties back toward the Rule of Law, Liberty and Freedom. Or this may occur as they watch the GOP expire and the Libertarians grow-up and mature to the point they can be trusted by Center and Independent voters just tired of the BS in DC. Then a more liberty-oriented strain of new pols will gain these voters by moving toward Libertarianism. This will be helped as the Information Age – the internet and new models of information dissemination, begin to play larger and larger roles with the electorate, but do so out of the view of the career pols in DC who, ultimately, will be blindsided by the change.
