Politico Reports Washington, DC Has Turned on Barack Obama … Rats Fleeing the S.S Obama … Obama Knows Nothing
Is it true, has DC turned on Barack Obama … Can You Say Watergate II? Are the rats jumping off the SS. Obama?
With the Obama administration facing three scandals simultaneously, Benghazi-gate, IRS-gate and AP-gate, the good ship Democrat S.S. Obama is looking more like the RMS Titanic these days. Barack Obama is beginning to make Richard Nixon look like a choir boy. But what did everyone expect, Obama’s “Chicago-style” politics has been taking place for years. It is only now that the MSM is being forced to cover it and Democrats are forced to acknowledge it. Democrats are fleeing the ship and the liberal MSM seems not far behind. So is as the Politico asks, has DC turned on Obama? I am not sure if I buy some of the Politico premise that the “establishment” Democrats and the MSM did not like Obama. Sorry, they have bent over backwards for this man and shoved legislation like Obamacare down the throats of Americans. The MSM has carried the water for this president and had they done their job, as they are being forced to now, Barack Obama may never have been elected in 2008 and definitely not in 2012. Democrats are fleeing Obama because “The One” is a lame duck, second term president with no more elections. However, Democrats who want to stay in power see Obama and his far too many scandals as an anchor. The MSM, after all the propaganda that they have spewed on to “We the People,” the AP scandal has forced them into a “come to Jesus” moment. Suddenly, the folks that made Obama have been slighted, more than normal by this administration. The MSM has suddenly realized that they have been defending Richard Milhous Nixon.
The one thing that rings most true in all of this is that Conservative and Tea Party folks have been vindicated in their complaints about President Barack Obama and his administration. The Left, Democrats and the MSM can no longer say their accusations are unwarranted and that they are just acting with partisan “sour grapes”. They were targeted and it is a fact … “NOT IF”. But suddenly Obama seems to have amnesia and has become Sgt. Schultz as he “knows nothing” of any of the scandals.
The town is turning on President Obama — and this is very bad news for this White House.
Republicans have waited five years for the moment to put the screws to Obama — and they have one-third of all congressional committees on the case now. Establishment Democrats, never big fans of this president to begin with, are starting to speak out. And reporters are tripping over themselves to condemn lies, bullying and shadiness in the Obama administration.
Buy-in from all three D.C. stakeholders is an essential ingredient for a good old-fashioned Washington pile-on — so get ready for bad stories and public scolding to pile up.
Vernon Jordan, a close adviser to President Bill Clinton through his darkest days, told us: “It’s never all right if you’re the president. There is no smooth sailing. So now he has the turbulence, and this is the ultimate test of his leadership.” Jordan says Obama needs to do something dramatic on the IRS, and quick: “He needs to fire somebody. He needs action, not conversation.”
Obama’s aloof mien and holier-than-thou rhetoric have left him with little reservoir of good will, even among Democrats. And the press, after years of being accused of being soft on Obama while being berated by West Wing aides on matters big and small, now has every incentive to be as ruthless as can be.
With Democrats and the MSM turning on Obama it should make for a good reality TV … ‘When Libs attack One Another.’ Gone is defending Obama and his agenda at all cost as it might just cost Democrat House and Senate politicians their political career. The 2014 and 2016 elections are not that far off and self-preservation is the name of the game in DC. To make matters worse for Democrats, the front-runner Hillary Clinton does not have clean hands either.
UPDATE I: More from Instapundit on President Barack Obama knowing nothing and doing his best imitation of ‘Hogan’s Hero’s’ Sgt. Schultz … As it turns out, that is exactly what Richard Nixon said as well. So what is worse, a president with three scandals he is complicit with, or a president that has no control of his administration and is completely over his head? Both are damning to America.
