Is There A Backlash Brewing Against DC’s Liberals

Published by at 9:07 am under All General Discussions

Did the liberal dinosaurs Congress, in a fit of power drunken madness, over reach? Was our liberal leaning, young and naive President caught up in a liberal policy madness that has proven to be more of a disaster than many would have even thought possible?

To many people, the answer is obvious given how poorly the government run stimulus is working out (verses all economic incentive based stimulus packages proven over and over again since Kennedy and up to President Bush after 9-11). Clearly America’s economy is still sinking, as the ponderous government bureaucracy creaks through its endless rules and regulations, pondering how to legally spend the job creating stimulus funds.

It should have it all worked out by next spring – as I predicted and as Democrats have now openly admitted.

This irrefutable proof that liberal fantasies are pure fiction for the gullible was followed by another attempt at a government run mess – the take over of our health care system. Only true liberals (especially leaders in Congress and the White House) believe true salvation for this nation will only come when private insurance programs are run out of business and the government beast takes over for us poor incompetent peasants.

Obama has made that clear once or twice already:

As this clip shows, in 2003 Obama was clear on how he would get everyone into a government run health care plan – no one would be left out. He has not changed his tune, he has just tried to fib and lie about his motives to sneak his plan into place.

The combination of proven failure and proven lies has taken its toll on the far left who lead the Democrats. The centrist facade of moderate sanity has been ripped from the Democrat leaders who are now in open warfare with the very same centrists they tried to hide their intentions behind. I guess they really think centrists are dupes and they are pure geniuses (seems they got that one backward as well).

The result is we see early indications of a backlash growing against Democrats in some key states. First deep blue New Jersey is going to go purple this fall barring some major surprise.

fter a month of potential game-changing moments — a visit from President Obama and the selection of a running mate — Gov. Jon Corzine (D) has only lost ground in the latest Monmouth University poll.

Corzine is down 16% and is well under 40%. His opponent is at 50%. Stick a fork in this democrat. And the news is just as bad in blue VA, which is going back to purple this fall:

Bob McDonnell has opened up a 51-37 lead over Creigh Deeds in the race to be Virginia’s next Governor, up from a 49-43 advantage four weeks ago.

The movement in the race likely has more to do with national trends than anything actually going on in Virginia. As Barack Obama’s approval has moved downward in the last month, so have the fortunes of Democratic candidates on the ballot in 2009. Democrat Jon Corzine trails by an equal 14 point margin in New Jersey.

Both candidates have positive favorability ratings- McDonnell’s is 54/26 and Deeds’ is 43/32. But McDonnell has a 52-33 lead with independents, and also has his party’s base more locked up.

Emphasis mine. This is one of many polls with McDonnell well over 50% and Deeds’ well back. This one appears to be over too. And it really should not be at this stage. Obamanomics and Obamacare have taken their toll. And the one thing about Obamanomics is it will continue to be demonstrated each and every month from now until the 2010 elections, as the unemployment figures will provide us all a reminder of the total failure of the government run stimulus.

This is the decade of the centrists. This country has been battered and insulted by the hot heads on the fringes for far too long. We are in serious trouble, but we also seem to be finally learning that all these zealots with their silly easy buttons really are not all they claim to be. 

Reader Crosspatch noted this stunning election news:

Roughly one month ago Delaware State Senator (Senator President Pro Tem as well) Thurman Adams (D)died at the age of 80 from a bout with pancreatic cancer. There was a special election yesterday and the two front runners were Joe Booth (R) and Polly Adams Mervine (D and daughter of the late Senator Thurman Adams). Polly had two major things going for her:

1) she is a Democrat; and
2) she is the daughter of Thurman.

What is most remarkable about the win was the margin. Joe garnered over 60% of the vote in a heavy Democrat area and trounced Adams Mervine by 30 points.

I doubt Booth is a ‘pure’ conservative from the far right. There is only one reason voters did this – they are mad as hell at DC for their broken promises and lies.

We see the trend all over. Take Florida for example, were is a backlash against dems but only really pans out if the opponent is a centrist and not too far out on the right. It looks like even some deep blue areas are about to bolt from the liberal democrat leadership, especially if you consider the senate race in Connecticut. 

It is too early to see what will happen in 2010, but if 2009 is any indication it will be a massive blowback against the democrats for allowing their liberal leaders to go crazy and make a mess of things. Of course, there are opportunities galore for the GOP to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

Update: I guess the democrats are going to give us all a teachable lesson on how to royally screw up, piss off the electorate, and get soundly whooped at the polls. It seems the answer to the Democrats’ political woes is to go out and insult Americans! What a novel idea.

Apparently, when Americans exercise their constitutional right to free speech and express their views in ‘town hall’ forums – basically participating in our great democracy – they are actually ‘an angry mob’:


H/T Gateway Pundit. You know, it really is an amazing depth of arrogance to claim America’s main street is an unruly mob. With this idiotic PR campaign in place my guess is the Dems will be looking back on 1994 next year with fond memories of how it was when America only slightly revolted against them. But you know mobs – once they get something in their head it is impossible to divert them from their path.

Update: More on President Obama’s reverse coat tails in the Washington Post:

The Prince William County real estate agent was sitting at a long wooden table covered with paperwork. Her clients, a young couple who had brought their 2-week-old baby, were finalizing a short sale on a townhouse that they were anxious to unload, even if it meant ruining their credit, because they had maxed out their credit cards trying to make the payments.

For Cleland, it was another example — one of many this day — of the broken promises of a president who she thought would be different. Obama pledged to change a Washington culture that favored corporations and the connected and instead lift families such as the one sitting next to Cleland out of their economic funk. Rather, she said, Obama has backed billions of dollars to banks that continue to “act like they’re broke” and started the country down a path that Cleland said she thinks will lead to more grief for the middle class.

“He’s just not as advertised,” she said. “Nothing’s changed for the common guy. I feel like I’ve been punked.”

Disillusionment is a tough thing to reverse. Disappointment at being duped is a line that really never gets uncrossed. The democrats are at a tipping point with America. They made all these promises, pretended to have all the answers, promoted themselves as the only path forward – and failed completely. They offered Nirvana and left us economic hell for as far as we can see.

And they wonder why people are turning against them? Could they be that clueless?

    “decision was made after security issues were raised because of threats.”

    Yeah, threats of constituents “talking back” and videoing the entire thing and putting up on youtube and embarrassing them.

    One thing members of Congress do not like is a lot of sass, particularly in public.

    Fannie Mae’s Q2 2009 losses up nearly 600% over Q2 2008.

    The mortgage finance company, seized by federal regulators last September, posted a second-quarter loss of $15.2 billion, or $2.67 per share, including $411 million in dividend payouts. That compares with a loss of $2.6 billion, or $2.54 per share, in the year-ago period.

    Where’s that picture of a bucket of money being dumped down the toilet?
