Obama Whines About Dems Being “Clobbered” In Mid-terms


Here’s your whiner-in-chief trotting out the same old whines

(The Hill) President Obama complained Thursday that Democrats “get clobbered” in midterm elections, blaming a “toxic” atmosphere in Washington for suppressing key Democratic constituencies.

“The challenge is that our politics in Washington have become so toxic that people just lose faith,” Obama told a group of top Democratic donors gathered at the home of former Miami Heat star Alonzo Mourning. “They say, ‘Y’know what, it doesn’t matter, I’m not that interested, I’m not gonna vote.’ And that’s especially true during the midterms.”

I didn’t hear him complaining when a Democrat partisan released that “47% video” regarding Romney, which was an attempt to “suppress the vote”. Or any of the smears against McCain, Romney, or other Republican candidates. As for a “toxic” atmosphere, he should look in the mirror.

Obama noted that young, female, black and Hispanic voters were more likely to vote in elections with a presidential contest.

If a Republican said that, they’d be called sexist, racist, and bigoted.

“Suddenly a more representative cross section of America gets out there, and we do pretty well in presidential elections,” Obama said.

“But in midterms, we get clobbered, either because we don’t think it’s important or because we get so discouraged about what’s happening in Washington that we think it’s not worth our while. And the reason today is so important, and the reason that I’m so appreciative for all of you being here is because we’re going to have to get over that. This is a top priority.”

Of course, we shouldn’t expect him to give the real reasons. In 2010 it was Obamacare, the failed and expensive Stimulus, and the crummy economy. In 2014, it is Obamacare, the stalled economy, stalled wages and jobs market, and a feckless and weak president who seems to be more interested in the fun parts of being president rather than doing the job.

Notice he’s providing these whines while doing the thing he does best: campaigning/fundraising. At the home of a 1%er, where the plates were $16k-$32K each.

And a funny part is that Obama rarely provides any of that cash to Democrat candidates. And lots of Democrats are running away from Obama, running away from Obamacare, or both.
