The people in question are disillusioned Democrats upset with Barry O and in the aftermath of the two House seat losses. From the Politico:
“Let’s face it — it has been a tough summer for Democrats,” said Jack Quinn, a top lobbyist and former White House Counsel to President Clinton. “But I really do think that people are feeling better.”
Quinn said, however, that Obama must confront the GOP.
“They didn’t get the House and say, ‘We want half a loaf.’ They’ve said, ‘we want the whole g——— oven,’” he argued. “It’s time for the president to really draw some hard lines here.”
Oh, yes. Please. Draw some hard lines. As if anything will make it better. (And no, people aren’t “feeling better.”)
Professor Jacobson laughs at DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s asinine assertion that it was “difficult” for Democrats to hold Anthony Weiner’s old NY seat:
Well yes, if you define “difficult” as having a 3-1 registration advantage, being held by Democrats since the 1920s, being the seat formerly held by Geraldine Ferraro and Chuck Schumer, and being in New York City. With odds like that, the Democrat didn’t stand a chance.
Heh. The exit numbers don’t look good for the White House. (As if anything does at this point). Or, as Pundette put it, the White House has been “Rebuked, Routed, and Rejected.”
