You’ll never guess what Michelle Obama was doing in New York last night. And Barack Obama was doing in Chicago.
Yes, of course, speaking at audiences. Aren’t they always? But to whom?
Donors, of course. We’re back at fundraising again because there are only 523 days left before the next congressional elections.
In order to con supporters into shelling out large chunks of money in this balding Obama economy so soon after they fell for his money pleas for the last election, Obama has to say he’s determined to win the House of Representatives back in 2014 and re-install Nancy “Gimme That Gavel” Pelosi as speaker.
Good luck with that. This president clearly prefers campaigning to running the country he’s spent almost $2 billion to “lead.” But he and his teleprompter are running against historical headwinds chasing the goal of taking back control of both houses of Congress.
In the past half-century the party of a second-term president has lost an average of 10 House seats in the midterm elections and five Senate seats. Ask George W. Bush how 2006 turned out for Republicans.
Forget about the current crop of Obama scandals and the ones yet to come. By autumn next year the attempted implementation of the inoperable ObamaCare will have failed. A growing majority of Americans already disapprove of the immense measure.
The unions are turning on Obama over their loss of membership clout to those state insurance exchanges. And once more Americans realize the emptiness of Obama’s promise that they can keep their current health plan if they want, candidates with a D after their names may find votes harder to come by on Nov. 4, 2014.
