The New York Times Reports Obama is Becoming “Poisonous” to Democrats

The New York Times Reports Obama is Becoming “Poisonous” to Democrats

Democrats are starting to get nervous about the 2014 midterm elections and an increasing number of them don’t want the president’s help when it comes to campaigning.

You know things are getting bad for Democrats when you read something like this in the New York Times…

Obama Factor Adds to Fears of Democrats

WASHINGTON — Democrats are becoming increasingly alarmed about their midterm election fortunes amid President Obama’s sinking approval ratings, a loss in a special House election in Florida last week, and millions of dollars spent by Republican-aligned groups attacking the new health law.

The combination has led to uncharacteristic criticism of Mr. Obama and bitter complaints that his vaunted political organization has done little to help the party’s vulnerable congressional candidates.

That excerpt may sound serious enough but a bit further down, we get this:

One Democratic lawmaker, who asked not to be identified, said Mr. Obama was becoming “poisonous” to the party’s candidates. At the same time, Democrats are pressing senior aides to Mr. Obama for help from the political network.

It’s hard to imagine a Democrat saying that just a few short years ago. It’s also difficult to imagine the New York Times printing it before now.

Democrats were nervous before the 2010 midterms and feared a repeat of 1994, when Obama famously said…

‘Well, the big difference here and in ’94 was you’ve got me.’

As much as they might not like it, Democrats have Obama this time too.

The Obama dude has been “poisonous” to many of us for 5 years now. We are happy to share with Democrats. Enjoy!

He is in his second term. It’s ok to criticize him, now.

“As much as they might not like it, Democrats have Obama this time too.”

They also have their voting record on Obamacare.

This just means they’ll be ramping up on race and the “war on women” memes.

You Republicans!!!! You cant call a Black man “poisonous”!!! That’s racist!!! You all just don’t want free health care and jobs. All you care about is making sure you win elections, name calling and…oh a Democrat said this? Never mind.

As long as you can hide the outcome of leftwing policies and talk about them in mere generalities, the LIVs will buy it.

The problem though is that it is getting harder and harder to hide reality from LIV’s own “lying” eyes.

2012 was the triumph of the Potemkin press…but can they up their effort again?

The Obama factor is a combination of things: voter climate change; redistribution of votes, global cooling towards Obama; a “bad-apple” presidency; political Redlining; golf addiction; “bitter clingers” still clinging to their guns and religion; Obamacare: he built “it” and he can’t blame Bush, minimum wage increases for the unemployed; a hatred of fossil-fuels even though he’ll end up being some sooner or later…

So, the Left arm of America gave the Right arm cancer and is surprised to learn it has metastasized.

So, he is a poisonous asset.

2009: Boy, Obama’s sticking it to those wingnuts now, huh?

2010: Ha! It’s the law! Go Obama! Eat it, wingnuts!

2011: He’s untouchable! Can’t pin a thing on him!

2012: Mitt Romney? Hahahahaha, stupid wingnuts!

2013: Um, er, yes, sure, there’s been a few problems…

2014: Obama who? Never heard of him. I don’t know him!

While they might disown Obama himself, they won’t disown his policies or treasonous anti-constitutional actions. Indeed, those gave the Democrats the keys to permanent power.

After Democrats and their obsequious media have been drinking the Obama Kool-Aid™ for going on ten years now, it’s a bit late to begin wondering what’s in it.

Drink up, Children, it’s time you were called home.

Even now, it’s not common sense or the good of the country that causes a change of heart but their own selfish interests.

Obamacare is now officially the Windows 8 of government programs.

Obama is issuing Windows 8.1 by Executive Order
