Democrat Armageddon

What does all this mean? At least two conclusions seem obvious:

  1. Democrat primary voters are crazy;
    and
  2. People don’t like Hillary Clinton very much.

Say what you will about Barack Obama, but you cannot deny the man has a certain charisma about him. Ever since JFK was assassinated, Democrats had been looking for a candidate like Obama, a charismatic figure as a vehicle to advance a liberal policy agenda. Bill Clinton’s presidency was marked by asterisks — he never got a majority of the popular vote — but Obama won by decisive majorities in 2008 and 2012.

For better or worse, therefore, the Democrats are now Obama’s party, and the fracture in this year’s primary campaign is the result. Bernie Sanders is Obama without charisma. Hillary Clinton is who she has always been, and she has never had any charisma. What the Democrats are betting, really, is that they won’t need charisma in November. Their ideal scenario would be for the Democrats to nominate Hillary, Jeb Bush to get the Republican nomination and Donald Trump to run a third-party populist campaign, so that the Clintons can slither back into the White House on a 43-percent plurality the way Bill did it in 1992.

The underlying problem for Democrats is that their desperation to capture and hold the White House has cost them scores of seats in Congress and state legislatures, and the number of Democrats among governors have been decimated. Democrats now represent the Left on a nationwide basis, which means they represent New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, Miami, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Seattle and other major urban centers. Democrats represent government employees, including employees of the liberal-controlled public school system, and Democrats also represent recipients of government benefits, including college students dependent on financial aid.

Democrats are generally the party of all who live at taxpayers’ expense. Democrats are hostile to the interests of those who work for a living in the private sector. Democrats hate America, because Democrats hate capitalism, hate the traditional family, and also hate God. Democrats are the party of abortion clinics and unwed motherhood. Democrats are the party of Hollywood, the New York Times, and the feminist blogosphere. Democrats are the party of dopeheads and atheists, vegetarians and pacifists, homosexuals and hedonists. Democrats are the party of blue-haired hipsters and tattoo-covered slackers. Democrats are the party of the emotionally wounded and the mentally ill, the party of “victims.”

Having collected all these disparate anti-American interest groups into a nationwide anti-American coalition — a phenomenon that was apparent as early as the 1972 McGovern campaign, and replicated in the 1988 Dukakis campaign — the Democrats were able to win the White House in 2008 and 2012 without making any real concession to the part of the American electorate that is Christian, patriotic, and happily married.

Elections have consequences, and living in the Obama Age means that we no longer live in America. We now live in Anti-America.

 

Obama promised that America would be fundamentally transformed and he has accomplished what he promised, which is why Bernie Sanders was able to rally the Kook Coalition to beat Clinton in the New Hampshire primary by a 22-point margin. As crazy as Hillary Clinton is, she isn’t quite crazy enough to represent what the Democrat Party has become in the Obama Age. Insanity is now public policy, and the paranoid rage of maniacs is a political force to be reckoned with in the wake of our fundamental transformation. The crisis of the Hillary Clinton campaign is therefore an omen of America’s impending doom because, even if the Democrats lose the next election, what can we expect the next time the Democrats win an election? How many more Democrat presidencies can the nation endure before it finally descends into total depravity and madness? The collapse of American society into violent chaos, anarchy and civil war is by no means a far-fetched scenario.

Be afraid, America. Be very afraid.

    “Obama is not charismatic. He’s just verbally fluent.”

    ^^^^This!

    trangbang68. Just out of curiosity who do you support for President?

  • bitterlyclinging

    Definitely a well informed electorate.
    Used to be only those that had skin in the game were allowed to cast their ballot.
    They opened the voting floodgates instead and now the ballots are primarily cast for the candidates that promise to show the voters the most money.
    Ergo Buraq Hussein Obama, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders.

  • Neal Bracken

    bitterlyclinging. Who is your choice for President?

  • bitterlyclinging

    Ted Cruz

  • Neal Bracken

    bitterlyclinging. It will never happen.I wish he was the Republican nominee for President. FYI I support and will vote for Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders if he is the Democratic nominee.

  • Art Deco

    I think you’re right that the Bush’s are dispositionally given to temporizing, perhaps due to being in politics because they are competitive types and not to accomplish policy goals.

    Gerald Ford and Robert Dole had the biases you might expect of a provincial bourgeois of a certain vintage and point of origin, but primarily they were in politics for about the same reason some people sell insurance: they liked the work and it was a living. They were not opportunistic in the manner of Richard Nixon or George Bush the Elder, but their deficit of articulated and contemplated principles limited both their ambition and their ability to stand their ground.

    In fairness to both Bushes, the Republicans never had a majority in either chamber during the Administration of the former and their majority was fairly thin during that of the latter. The Senate’s absurd parliamentary rules tended to defeat reforms when the default settings of carrerist wastes-of-space like Mitch McConnell and Dennis Hastert did not.

  • Art Deco

    Trump’s ‘unfavorability ratings’ do not injure much his performance vis a vis Clinton or Sanders. The other leading Republicans poll a bit better, but we’re talking 3% of those surveyed.

  • Art Deco

    The superdelegates could have been decisive in 2008, ’tis true, but Obama had majorities among both the superdelegates and the delegates won in contests.

  • Adobe_Walls

    Our system, particularly the unelected and un-accountable 4th branch cannot be reformed. The malignant elements must instead be eviscerated. While I doubt Cruz will take on the role of President Ruthless Hardass, I have zero confidence that any of the other candidates wont add to the problem.

  • Adobe_Walls

    It is my understanding that many of the superdelegates were committed to her and later switched.

  • bitterlyclinging

    Strange, you hangin out here. All the anti Lib vitriol this site generates.
    Should be wearin’ on you by now.

  • AMartel

    He’s the motivational office poster of Presidents. It’s not charisma. You’d like to politely ignore his useless droning about “Tolerance” and “Leadership” and “Teamwork” but management keeps insisting that its important company policy. He’s, like, permanently ensconced in the break room, too. Can’t get away from him.

    “The underlying problem for Democrats is that their desperation to capture and hold the White House has cost them scores of seats in Congress and state legislatures, and the number of Democrats among governors have been decimated. ”
    I’ve concluded that they are fine with that so long as they get to nominate the next 3 or 4 supreme court justices, on the theory that a newly-leftist and very aggressive court will simply override state and federal legislatures on the issues that matter most to them.

    I think Chicago will look like post bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki, if the Urban decay continues for twenty more years. Think mad max and Thunder dome.

  • bitterlyclinging

    It’ll be sooner than that. The Norks are gearing up for something.
    The Iranians can’t just go out and nuke Israel even though Obama green lighted it, they’d end up facing the wrath of the United States, so they need a distraction while they carry out their deed, like Japan invading Kiska and Attu, while a major invasion force headed for Midway
    And it’ll all come down while Obama is still in office, that way there’s guaranteed to be no American response. Obama’s attitude has been and is “In two hundred years every one will be dead anyway, so what’s the point?”

  • Neal Bracken

    bitterlyclinging. I hope you have evidence to back up your statements. Otherwise you are bitterlyclinging to your fantasies.

    Whodathunkit 75 years ago, re Pearl Harbor?
    The images of the 10 US Sailors on their knees, hands on their heads with Iranians holding their weapons on them, the US Marine Embassy Guards turning over their weapons to the rebels before being lead to planes flying them out of Yemen, a success story Obama touted many times. Bin laden called America a “Weak Horse”. Obama made sure that came true. The time for Iran to strike is now, before Obama leaves office, guaranteeing Islam its victory over the United States and Israel.
    Mebbe Obama will even claim the US needs to forego its quadriennial election in order to rebuild and he’d gladly stay on as dictatoer and president during the rebuilding, the national mergency, and make a new American peace with and subject to Islam.
    No more a fantasy than some two bit internet video enraging a murdering Muslim mob enough to cause them to kill the US Ambassador and three other Americans, and the lying cocksucker who wrote that working for another lying cocksucker even has a degree in fabricating fantasies, MFA if Fictional Literature Writing from NYU

    I wouldn’t say that Nixon was an opportunist. He was basically a decent man that got caught up in the political wars the Dims had started before he came on the scene.

    GHW Bush, may be another kettle of fish. I can’t say. I never had a good feeling about any of the Bushes.

  • Quartermaster

    I’m not sure Cruz won’t add to the problems. Not because I think he’s some sort of dark opportunist, but simply because of the advanced state of the disease afflicting the US of A.

  • Quartermaster

    I’m not sure what Trump would do if elected POTUS. I doubt there is anyone that could turn things around.

    I don’t know that he would lose either. He may have high negatives now, but that usually changes over time if the candidate is successful.

  • Quartermaster

    You can name any candidate that would fall in that category.

  • Quartermaster

    IIRC, that was mostly a band wagon effect.

  • Quartermaster

    Detroit will win that race. They are much further down the road.

  • Neal Bracken

    bitterlyclinging.Your reasoning is just as faulty as your grammar and your spelling. First, I wonder what our response would have been if a similar vessel of Iranians would have strayed into our waters. Second, as I recall Osama Bin Laden was killed on Obama’s watch. Yes, I am glad that Mr. Obama wants to make peace with the Muslim community because those Muslims are not the terrorists. The terrorists have no compunction of killing other Muslims. I think you must be referring to the Benghazi incident. You seem to be knowledgeable about cocksucking. Do you speak from experience? Hey, each to his or her own. I guess I should point out to you that the Benghazi Committee led by a Republican found no evidence of wrongdoing by Hillary Clinton. Of course, bitterlyclinging would be happy to set the Committee straight with the truth. Right? Your handle is apt. You are bitterlyclinging to your fantasy world and nobody dare challenge you on it. Well I just did. Furthermore, I am secure enough that I can use my real name.

  • Quartermaster

    Good move!

  • Quartermaster

    The Benghazi committee was short stopped because they couldn’t get what they needed. There is a big difference between no evidence and those who have it refusing to cough it up.

  • Quartermaster

    Why is a leftard worried about evidence? It’s not important otherwise, why should it be now?

  • Neal Bracken

    bitterlyclinging. No problem. It’s not wearing on me a bit.

  • Hy Feiber

    She sure can kill Ambassadors!

  • Neal Bracken

    So much bluster, so little evidence to back up what you are saying. I guess you all had to set up a website so you can just talk junk without being challenged. Well, I am here to challenge you.
