Oh to be a fly on the wall
By now the Democratic wing of the kleptocracy must be getting a tiny inkling of just how unpopular they are.
The White House representative at Netroots Nation, Pfeiffer, was openly booed. The blogs have turned nasty.
What politicians know, but don't talk about, is that approval ratings don't matter very much. What REALLY matters is your re-elect numbers, the question that asks, if the election were held today would you vote to reelect Senator Snort or whoever. My guess is that the Democratic numbers stink outloud. As of today their only counter arguement is that the Republicans are REALLY crazy. And the Republicans really ARE crazy, but that is really not a rallying cry.
I think Obama has been a little too clever. I think he wanted the Republican take over in the house so that he could cut social spending and pretend it was the Republican's fault. That is why last year's appropriation bills were delayed until the Republicans took over. That is why Obama did not pass an increase in the debt ceiling while he still had a Democratic majority.
But I think he has been a little too clever. Obama cannot grasp that they Republicans are prepared to destablized the whole country in order to get back into power.
