For those upset that we quote Pat Buchanan at World Net Daily, try this on for size:
Rep. Pete DeFazio (D-Ore.) slams president Obama in an interview with KGW in Portland.
From the KGW report:
Asked whether he thought the President had a shot at re-election, Defazio was skeptical.
“At this point it pretty much depends on how far out there the Republican nominee is. You know with a respectable–someone who is a little bit toward the middle of the road–Republican nominee, he’s going to have a very tough time getting re-elected,” said DeFazio.
He’s also not convinced the President will do well in Oregon.
“I believe Oregon is very much in play. I mean we are one of the harder hit states in the union, particularly my part of the state. I’ve just done six town hall meetings, have seven to go but people are shaking their heads and saying ‘I don’t know if I’d vote for him again.‘” Defazio said.
Asked if he was surprised, the congressman shrugged.
“Not at all,” DeFazio said. “One guy asked me, ‘Give me 25 words what he’s about and what he’s done for me.’ I’m like, ‘It could have been worse.’”
Yes, that is old time Democrat from Oregon Pete DeFazio which indicates that recent New Jersey and New York poll numbers are not that odd after all. Oh, those Silicon Valley geniuses that thought Obama was Mess-iah and Hillary Clinton was not – they’re disillusioned too. Latinos? They think Obama stinks and support continues to drop.
No wonder the Republicans, hardly on high moral ground in any of this considering the Bush years, are mocking Obama with a new website which supplies free greeting cards.
