Obama Is So Toxic

Published by at 7:59 am under 2010 Elections,All General Discussions

If anyone doubts President Obama has not only wasted all his political capitol with the nation, but has also generated a huge wave voter anger for failing to make ‘the [unemployment] waters recede’, they only need to look at WI this week to see just how toxic the first two years of Obama, Reid and Pelosi have been to the Democrat caucus. The administration touted a rally in WI this week as the biggest political event since 2008 (ignoring all the Tea Party events and Glenn Beck’s historic gathering in DC).

When Obama steps onto a grass quad at the University of Wisconsin on Tuesday, he will deliver a newly tailored, more personalized campaign appeal aimed at ginning up enthusiasm, according to White House and senior Democratic officials. Plouffe said Obama will remind students of the work they put into his 2008 campaign and warn them that if they don’t re-engage now, “all that could be jeopardized.”

The lack of support for President Obama’s slick but vacuous messaging has made just getting a crowd to attend the event a tough challenge.

But where he drew a crowd of 17,000 at the University of Wisconsin in 2008 during the presidential race, crowds are expected to be significantly smaller this time around — so much so that the president’s campaign team, Organizing for America, is sending out RSVP requests for Tuesday’s rally, featuring musician Ben Harper.

According to The Washington Post, the students at University of Wisconsin-Madison are typical of the enthusiasm gap that Democrats recognize is eating away at their chance to keep the majority in Congress.

The stunner in all this is that the endangered Democrat incumbent Senator Russ Feingold is not even going to attend, the President and his liberal allies in DC are so toxic!

Democratic Party Chairman Timothy Kaine says he sees no slight in Wisconsin Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold skipping a campaign rally tonight where President Barack Obama is appearing on his behalf.

The Democrats have run out of lipstick to cover this pig of an election cycle. It is not a slight that one of the most liberal Democrats in the Senate is afraid to be seen with the most liberal President in memory, after said liberal Democrat Party passed endless liberal fantasy legislature? Yeah, things are going just great for the Dems, as long as you live in complete denial.

    AJ, there is one shot left in their locker. War.

    I could very easily see Obama launching an attack against the Iranian nuclear program. Not that there isn’t a need to take the Iranian nukes out, but Obama would be doing so and timing it for his political benefit, not the good of the nation or of the world.

    There will be serious repercussions from such a strike. It would almost certainly trigger terrorist attacks in the United States, and could ignite a general war in the Middle East. It’s not something to do lightly – and definitely not something to indulge in to save someone’s political bacon.

    But the Democrats have always regarded sound military strategy as secondary to domestic politics.

    This is funny – he isn’t going to Madison just because of the students, Madison is a notorious far-left stronghold and has been for a long time. A city like that is supposed to be the heart of Obama’s base, and as the piece references, he was wildly popular there in 2008. A place like this is the home of his most loyal footsoldiers, he goes there looking for some last ditch support.

    If Madison isn’t turning out for him, his army has quit. Wisconsin is lost to the dems.

    You’re correct, but… you’re thinking about the Clinton’s, especially Hillary. SHE would have the nerve to pull something like that, but Obama doesn’t have the stones for it. This is the problem with putting an effete pantywaist in charge – when the chips are down he’s just going to walk off and sulk and complain how everyone’s being mean to him. Not only will he not save the country, or save his party, he’s too worthless to even save himself. I now honestly do not think we have ever seen such a total failure of a man elevated so high in THIS country – you have to go back to Louis XVII or Tsar Nicholas to find this level of incompetence at the top levels of power. (note how they both ended up)

    If Obama ever gets *really* desperate, he might hit the Iranians with an angry leaflet campaign – he doesn’t have it in him to do anything more than that. But even then he’ll apologize if it annoys them.

    And the one man who’s tough enough to push him to do something, Rahm Emmanuel, is supposedly jumping off Obama’s sinking ship by the end of the week. I despise Emmanuel, btw, but I don’t deny that at least he has some backbone. Unlike the Wimp-in-Chief.

    Obviously Rahm’s smart enough to realize that you gotta get out of town while the gettin’s good. And he’s far from the only one. As Dylan once sang, you don’t have to be a weatherman to know which way the wind is blowing.

  4. The September 2010 unemployment numbers come out Thursday.

    They will not be good, based on the recent transportation and capital goods indexes.

    I disagree War is not the only shot the democrats have left. Their last hope is voter fraud.
