It is simply too late for Big Media to now write articles about the Obama Dimocrats, the white working class and the Cult of Obama. Elenor Clift is simply too late with too little. Her latest on the Cult Of Obama and the damage done is simply too too late. It’s too fake because it is so late:
“Democrats got the lowest share of the white vote in this midterm election than in any congressional election since World War II, losing key races in Pennsylvania, Illinois, and Michigan, and every contested election in Ohio, which spells trouble for President Obama’s reelection. No Democrat can win the White House without these Midwestern swing states, and they are all decimated by job losses that Obama has offered no road map to recover. [snip]
Part of Obama’s problem is that there’s too much hero worship around him, and that translates into a reluctance to fault him for anything, except maybe that he didn’t make a good enough case for all the wonderful things he’s done. [snip]
In his post-election press conference, Obama said there must be easier ways to learn the hard lessons of politics than getting the shellacking he and the Democrats got. There are, and if his aides weren’t so in love with him and wrapped up in the idea of him as a transformational president, they might have seen this coming. Obama’s problems with white working-class voters surfaced during the primaries, when he lost West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Ohio to Hillary, and those problems could prove lethal in 2012 not only for Obama but for the five Democratic senators who are up for reelection in the Midwest and the Rust Belt.
Obama is an undefined figure to much of the country, and to his fellow Democrats. Though he’s portrayed as a liberal, it’s not clear what he’ll fight for, and he keeps that deliberately vague, perhaps hoping to deliver on the post-partisan promise his election represented.“
It’s too late. It’s FAKE. All this phony baloney “analysis” in 2010 about what was obvious in 2007. It’s fake “cover your ass” analysis from phonies who either did not know and therefore should not be listened to or did know and kept quiet.
You know what that reminds me of? A point Ava and C.I. were making in "Editorial: Fairytales die hard (Ava and C.I.)" where they opened by noting some of the press criticism of Barack from the MSM -- finally criticism from the MSM -- and Ava and C.I. wrote:
That's huge. In therapy, it would be hailed as a breakthrough.
Sadly, for many the insight came not from their own observations but from The Televised Confessions of St. Barack. Barack went on CBS 60 Minutes (link has text and video) and owned up to a communications problem. A 'recent' one, you understand. And the press feels they have a little bit of room to tell the truth in -- or some of it.
By the way, last week, I was mentioning a website and saying I couldn't remember what it was. The website's author was following Democrats Underground and how the Cult of St. Barack was going nutso. That website was Not Your Sweetie and if you have never checked it out, make a point to.
