Many Democrats are shell-shocked and in denial. Some deny the GOP wave even took place. Others cite an anti-incumbent mood for their losses. Or low voter turnout. Or the off-year election phenomenon. At heart, all of these excuses deny the fact that Americans have decisively rejected President Obama’s policies and his vision for America.
Obama’s radical, anti-American, anti-constitutional, and socialistic transformation of America into his utopian vision of a centralized, egalitarian government is, finally, reaching its high-water mark, soon to be defeated by the American people. (If only the GOP and all freedom lovers have the courage and stamina to stand true to principles.)
Prior to the election, President Obama famously boasted, “I am not on the ballot this fall. Michelle’s pretty happy about that. But make no mistake: These policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them.”
To the disgruntlement of many Democrats, Obama insisted: “The bottom line is, though, these are all folks who vote with me. They have supported my agenda in Congress. … These are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me.”
But after the election, Obama denied any repudiation by the American people of his policies or agenda. Indeed, he even implied that Democrats would have won if more people had voted. (Sorry – not really sorry – but it was a Republican rout.)
Obama said, “To everyone who voted, I want you to know that I hear you. To the two-thirds of voters who chose not to participate in the process yesterday, I hear you, too.” (Yes, he is telepathic as well.)
Spinning Out of Control
In total denial, the President of the United States and leader of the Democratic Party claimed, “The American people sent a message, one that they’ve sent for several elections now.” Except, of course, each of the last four elections was unique in its own right and in the messages conveyed by the electorate.
Obama asserted that Americans “want us to get the job done,” and that bipartisanship is the order of the day: “All of us in both parties have a responsibility to address that sentiment.”
But what does “getting the job done” mean? Obama’s misreading of this election’s “tea leaves” suggests he needs to get another job. Americans want a reversal of Obama’s policies, not a bipartisan preservation of them.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid also contributed to the White House spin, saying, “The message from voters is clear. They want us to work together.”
Once again, Americans placed Republicans – not bipartisan leaders – in charge.
Obama’s Messiah Complex
An intriguing, unreported, aspect of Obama’s post-election speech reveals his innermost child: Savior of the world. Obama said,
“We had this incredible privilege of being in charge of the most important organization on earth, the U.S. government, and our military, and everything that we do for good around the world. And there’s a lot of work to be done to make government work better, to make Americans safer, to make opportunity available to more people, for us to be able to have a positive influence in every corner of the globe the way we’re doing right now in West Africa, and I am going to squeeze every last little bit of opportunity to help make this world a better place over these last two years.”
Yes, Obama thinks the United States federal government is “the most important organization on earth,” and that he himself is tasked with being “a positive influence in every corner of the globe” in order to “make this world a better place over these last two years.”
The last time I checked the Constitution, the role of the President is relegated to doing what is best for United States citizens, not nebulous, non-existent “citizens of the world.”
Besides, Obama has already failed at his own self-proclaimed global mission, having helped the world go up in flames.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi totally rejected reality in her own post-election analysis, asserting,
“I do not believe what happened the other night is a wave. There was no wave of approval for the Republicans. I wish them congratulations, they won the election, but there was no wave of approval for anybody. There was an ebbing, an ebb tide, for us.” (Sorry – no, not really sorry – but the GOP made historic gains across the country at every level of government.)
Pelosi also mirrored Obama, blaming the electorate for not voting for Democrats:
“We have to engage people in voting again. Two-thirds of the electorate did not vote in this election the other night. That’s shameful.”
Also in denial, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, ever the true believer, claimed, “We know we’re right on the issues. The American people believe in the causes we’re fighting for.”
If true, then why did Democrats disguise their true agenda, lie about Obamacare and immigration, and avoid the issues that Americans were most concerned about? And why did Americans reject them?
Ed Schultz is Right?
Commentator Ed Schultz, no friend to conservatives, admitted:
“Last night was a complete rejection of the President of the United States and what he stands for. You can’t sugarcoat it. There were four main Democratic themes in this election that simply did not work. Democrats focused on income inequality, the war on women, voting rights, and fighting bad trade deals. Now, those themes, well, they just didn’t ring true with voters, and just didn’t ring true with voters on the ground.”
We, the People, have spoken.
The GOP tsunami augurs well for America. It remains to be seen whether the GOP will have the courage to fulfill its responsibilities, stand firm on its principles, and fight for freedom.
