Obama Tells Dems To Make Mid-terms “Sexy”
This is the world Obama lives in
(The Hill) President Obama warned that Democrats often get into trouble during the midterm elections because state-level races aren’t as “sexy” as national presidential elections during a meeting with Democratic governors and party donors Thursday night.
“We know how to win national elections,” Obama said. “But all too often it’s during these midterms where we end up getting ourselves into trouble because, I guess we don’t think it’s sexy enough.”
The people in Kiev and Venezuela were not amused. But, hey, Obama made a wishy-washy comment, so his job is done. Back to campaigning
(The Wilderness) Why is this President, elected because of a hope he promised in front of the world, so content to sit it out instead?
Is he bored? Does massive public upheaval not interest him if it does not serve his political ends? Does it remind him that everything is in fact, not awesome?
Make sure to read the entire awesome article, a pure indictment of the Social Media President.
During the meeting at a luxury hotel near the White House, Obama said that while those at the top were doing better in recent years, the middle class was still getting squeezed. He said voters understood his policy proposals, including ObamaCare and the minimum wage, were the right thing to do.
It’s apparently “sexy” to push Obamacare, which has caused millions to lose their plans and have to get new plans which are, if not more expensive via the premiums (someone else has to pay the rest), much more expensive for the deductibles, with reduced networks. Maybe turning America into Welfare Nation is sexy?
What upsets Obama is the large numbers of state governorships and/or general assemblies won by the GOP since 2010. Democrats have made national politics an art form over the past 30 years, forgetting about local politics to some degree. And he knows the Dems will most likely lose the Senate in 2014, so retaking the executive and/or general assemblies in the states would allow him to push his absurd Obamacare law forward. That’s sexy or something. Presidential Leadership in the Age Of Obama.
