Left Far Behind

Former President Barack Obama pal and Alabama Congressman Artur Davis walked off the Democrats’ plantation last week; following Newark Mayor Cory Booker onto whatever list comes right before Obama’s personal kill list. If the polls are even marginally accurate, today’s Wisconsin Gubernatorial recall election—a concept the Democratic Party officially opposed in California in 2003—is set to be a political Waterloo for Obama and his accomplices.
The European economic picture wobbled like an old television with a broken vertical hold knob and the Continent’s leaders ignored the politically vestigial Obama while attempting to fix it; although that might have been in response to Obama’s confusion over which side constituted the good guys during World War II. And then, the week ended with news that Obama’s socialist tinkering has left the employment picture even uglier than previously thought.
Channeling his port-canted colleague Paul Krugman, New York Times pseudo-conservative David Brooks attempted to comfort Obama following his brutal week: “…you have to feel sorry for him. This is in large degree not his fault. Things are happening way beyond his control.”
I might be inclined to loan Obama a shoulder to cry on were it not for the fact that the dire circumstances in which he’s currently foundering are entirely his own creation. For further proof consider that Brooks–who is to true conservatives what a veggie burger is to the porterhouse at Smith & Wollensky’s™–is merely mouthing the same “don’t blame Obama” platitude the Democrats invented to explain away Obama’s unrivaled ineptitude.
A cursory examination of that liberal line reveals more than the left probably wishes the rest of us could glimpse. By suggesting that the economic, diplomatic and social plights which currently bedevil the Nation are somehow beyond the reach of Presidential influence, the Democrats and their enablers in the corporate media—nearly all of whom blamed President George W. Bush for everything including bad weather—are essentially acknowledging something about which we at Personal Liberty Digest™ have been warning you for quite some time: Obama is as far out of his depth as an MSNBC host on Jeopardy™.
What’s worse—for Obama, at least—the Democrats know it. While Obama skated around Wisconsin in an effort to avoid further damaging recall challenger Tom Barrett’s fading chances, former President Bill Clinton, the dough-faced lothario to whom current Secretary of State and former bitter Obama rival Hillary Clinton is “married,” kicked the President squarely in the shorts. During an interview, Clinton praised presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney for his business acumen and involvement with the unfairly demonized Bain Capital.
“…(Romney has) been governor and had a sterling business career (that) crosses the qualification threshold. I don’t think that we ought to get into the position where we say this is bad work. This is good work.”
Clinton did qualify his remarks; but the ship was out of the harbor. According to Clinton, Romney is no Blackbeard and Bain is no Queen Anne’s Revenge. Far be it for me to suggest that Clinton might think this November is a foregone conclusion; but the most popular Democrat in America just kicked out the peg leg on which the most important Democrat in America has been limping. If the king rat set foot on the plank; can the rest of the horde be far behind?
