Is There Blood in the Water?

Here we are coming off a weekend when Hillary Clinton criticized President Obama on foreign policy. The president's former Secretary of State said that "Great nations need organizing principles, and ‘Don’t do stupid stuff’ is not an organizing principle." Oh yeah.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) criticized the president on harsh interrogation techniques at the CIA. She's "An institutionalist who has repeatedly sought to defend congressional power."  Oh yeah.

So now a few Democrats that want to establish centrist cred are joining those obstructive and mean-spirited wascally Wepublicans who have been cynically creating gridlock and opposing our Lightworker president for the last four years.

And there are faint, oh so faint, indications that the folks in the liberal media, the storied "Democratic operatives with bylines" are starting to stir.

What could be going on?

I will tell you what is going on.  The Democrats are looking around the next bend in the river and they are seeing and hearing a wave election that will deliver the U.S. Senate to the Republicans.

In other words, there is blood in the water, and when there is blood in the water the normally docile domestic sharks that can be disciplined by a sharp blow on the nose, according to sources in the US Special Forces, are starting to thrash into a feeding frenzy.

Yeah.  Where were they when it mattered, when lies were being told about Obamacare, stupid stuff was going down on climate change, when "soft power" was all the rage in foreign policy?

I'll tell you where they were.  They were going along to get along.  They were responding like little puppy-dogs when a White House aide started shouting at them on the phone when they made a teensy-weensy criticism of the president.

Hey, but let's not be angry.  Let's not be despondent.  It probably had to be this way.  The American people don't know nuttin' about economics, about politics, about limited government, about the best way to grow the economy.  And in normal times there really isn't any bandwidth for a conservative message to balance the lefty cheerleading from the Democratic operatives with bylines.  The facts and reality may be conservative, but politics and religion are all about an ideal and perfect world.  So people aren't going to listen to a conservative message until democracy has given them what they want, good and hard.

So now the Blessed Moment of Hope and Change is over.  Now President Obama has a 40% approval rating.  Now voters are angry, even to the extent of disliking their own congressman.  "Everything is terrible" and "for the first time in 25 years, [pollsters find] that a majority of people disapprove of the job their own Congress member is doing."

Golly.  How could that have happened?  It couldn't be a failure of the ruling class from Obama to dogcatcher, could it?

Because, as everybody knows, anyone that opposes President Obama must be a racist, sexist homophobe.  By definition.

Until there is blood in the water.
