Remember the pink sneakers and progressives promising to stand with Wendy? Remember how sure liberals were that Wendy Davis would turn Texas blue? Remember when people at CNN and MSNBC were falling all over themselves to talk about the exciting candidacy of Wendy Davis?

Those days are gone.

A progressive organization called the Agenda Project Action Fund has produced a new ad which attempts to politicize Ebola by blaming its spread on Republicans and budget cuts.

The last time we checked in with former White House spokesman Jay Carney he was predicting doom for Democrats in the midterms. It looks like he hasn’t changed his mind.

It’s also interesting to note that Carney is acknowledging the fact that so many Democrats are distancing themselves from Obama.

In a recent appearance on MSNBC, the Washington Post’s Dana Milbank suggested an inconsistency between Republican desires to remove Obama from office, and Republican complaints that the Secret Service was not adequately protecting Obama from harm.

Why is that inconsistent? Can’t we both oppose a president and want to protect the President?...

If you had any doubt that the Obama brand has become downright toxic, look no further than Mitch McConnell’s Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes.

First she ran an ad in which she said “I’m not Obama”; now, she’s clearly denying ever supporting Obama.

At Obama’s recent speech in Illinois, he spent part of his time talking about improvements he has made to the economy and suggested other things that could be done. Naturally, he railed against trickle down economics.
