The left media and the Obama regime will try to spin this every way they can to explain away why Brown won. The only thing they will get right is that the voters are angry, but they will still be off the mark for the reason they are angry.
Obama says and the media accepts that the American people are mad at 8 years of George Bush and are STILL taking it out at the polls. Oh com’on. Accepting that there is some truth to that back in November ’08, that excuse won’t sell this year.
“Voters are pretty tired of the blame game,” said longtime Democratic strategist Steve Hildebrand, a top aide on Obama’s presidential campaign. “What a stupid strategy that was.”
There is a big segment of the Obama voters (I won’t call them democrats) who are angry at being taken for a ride. Those voters are angry at the severe left turn that party has taken. How else do you explain the recent increase in voters who identify as independents? These aren’t voters who have left the republican party.
The media (and Frank Rich) will try and spin Obama as a victim of big, greedy interests who have him pinned down. This is a new tack: the president as a victim we should feel sympathy for? I can’t think of anything that would make the electorate angrier – expecting US to feel sorry for a predicament that he and his supporters are trying to sell us? That’s not going to play well, either.
With so many Americans out of work or in financial straits, it’s hard to feel sorry for a guy who pays little attention to a would-be Christmas day bomber between rounds of golf.
How many parents were wondering how they could provide Christmas for their children while their president slept in a $4000/night estate in Hawaii?
Sympathy is a tactic that won’t work. Don’t even try to play that card, Mr.Obama.
