Song of the day from Obama to the Democrats

I wonder if the charmingly obnoxious DNC staffer I had the privilege to meet was trapped next to on a three-hour flight knew then her winning strategy would be get-the-hell-away-from-Obama-stat!

Ah, Liberalism is a fickle mistress.  Could any Democrat have predicted Obama would destroy their party two years ago?

Rush did.

(Just sayin’.)

From Reid Wilson:

The advice from Democratic consultants and strategists is almost unanimous: Run away from the president, and fast. A prominent Democratic pollster is circulating a survey that shows George W. Bush is 6 points more popular than President Obama in “Frontline” districts — seats held by Democrats that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee sees as most vulnerable to Republican takeover. That Bush is more popular than Obama in Democratic-held seats is cause for outright fear. …

I wish I could share my beaming smile.

“He is a walking radioactive disaster,” one senior Democratic operative said of the president. But any effort to seriously distance oneself from Obama is dangerous for an incumbent; go too hard against the president and voters think the candidate is faking it.

Funny how that blame game works out, isn’t it?  Blame Bush for two years and poll lower than he does.  Oopsie!

More stuff you can’t make up:

What’s more, virtually every Democratic strategist agreed, if the president of the United States shows up in a candidate’s home state, the candidate should show up too. Dodging Obama by claiming a scheduling conflict only breeds more stories about how much of a drag he is, and about how desperate Democrats are to avoid him.

Excuse me: ROTFLMAO. 

“If he comes into the district, you have to talk about what’s going on in Washington. That’s never going to be good for incumbents or even challengers who are Democrats,” said a Democratic campaign manager. “But if he’s coming in to raise you $500,000 that you can then use to drop an anvil on your opponent’s head, it’s worth it, in my opinion. The ads comparing you to him are coming no matter what, so you might as well get the money.”

Ah, you might as well get the money.  Fitting advice for Democrat Congressmen, eh?  Problem is, they already think they’re entitled to it!

Problem is, does anyone think Obama’s ego will allow him to accept that he’s the one dragging the party down? 

H/T: Ed Morrissey, who picked a worthy theme song for the Democrats in the midterm election.  (A favorite, in fact, and thanks: I just created a new Pandora station with extra surf music ; )
