The repudiation of the Obama administration by the president’s own party won’t likely come, at least not in large measure, while he’s still in office. But the hermetic seals on Obama’s control of the Democrats are bursting, little by little. And over the weekend we saw one example of leakage when the Democrat National Committee refused to endorse the president’s Iran deal in what CNN called a “big embarrassment for the president…”
President Obama suffered an “embarrassment” with the Democratic National Committee not passing a resolution over the weekend in support of his Iran nuclear deal, CNN panelists said Sunday.
According to the Washington Post, party chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.) blocked the resolution at the summer meeting in Minnesota.
“The Obama-controlled DNC could not pass a resolution this weekend expressing support for President Obama’s Iran deal,” New York Times reporter Jonathan Martin said. “It’s a bit of an embarrassment for the administration seeing as it’s how his party, he appointed Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and it’s revived the sort-of latest round of eye-rolling among Democratic operatives about the state of the party.”
CNN host John King said Martin was being diplomatic, saying it was a “big embarrassment for the president.”
It’s also not insignificant that Hillary’s people are talking about “rebuilding the party from the ground up,” which is an admission that the Democrats have a significant problem with losing majorities in both the House and Senate, holding only 18 governorships and having Republicans holding majorities in 68 of the 98 legislative chambers across the country. They’re recognizing the disaster Obama has been for their party down the ballot, and they’re caught in a dilemma of how to repudiate that disaster without losing what assets Obama did bring to the table.
