Blown Chance

When President Obama was elected, it wasn't by an outstanding plurality.  It's not like a groundswell of support embraced a radical turn to a new agenda of government spending.
~
The Stimulus Program with it's seemingly aimless spending, along with a railroaded nationalization of health care.... and the outright obnoxious audacity of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, combined with an underlying anti-American self critical sentiment in international affairs has characterized his administration.
~
I thought it then, and continue to think now that the election of a Black President was a bellweather change for this country.  It was a great thing that showed our maturity and growth as a society.
~
But now the Democrats, and the Big Government agenda is on the run.  Maybe they tried to do too much, too fast.  But the Republicans are in line to recapture the House and the Senate.
~
I'll be watching the clock to hear the first pundit say that this is a racist reaction.  The Democrats will never admit that they have blown their chance.... all by themselves.

The big problem is the Dems never had much of a chance. This recession was deep. And, let's not forget that the big spending started before the Big "O" walked through the front door at 1600. The bail outs started with Bush because he knew what kind of a mess he had on his hands.


That's why I don't think the GOP was all that upset that they lost to Obama. Then they pick up the strategy of sitting on their hands for 2 years and let the Dems grab the blame for an economic downturn that started under W's watch.


Oh, and, it may not get said but anyone would be a fool not to think that a little bit of racism isn't to blame for some of the hatred towards this administration.

So there we have it.....

It's George Bush's fault and we are still racists after all.

Don't mean to sound trite, but I think that Jim L has capsulized the Democrats response perfectly. 
Looks like the debate will be vigorous.
Staytuned for Election Day.
