You know it’s gonna be a fun read when the commentary begins with ‘Obama the Fallen God’…
Obama’s election, according to Victor Davis Hanson, planted the seeds for the Democrats to implode. He is the reason there are, as Dem chairman Tom Perez admits ‘No Moderates Left’.
You never would have guessed it from their heady days of Democrat success in after Obama became President when the media were crowing “we’re all socialists now”.
For all the claims that opposition to Obama was ‘racist’ few among Democrats or even the Media acknowledged that then-Senator Obama was ranked the FURTHEST Left of all the partisans in the Democrat Senate. [Could it have been his POLITICS we objected to?] The promised land he was leading his party into was one of permanent Democrat rule.
Supposedly, changing demography, massive illegal immigration, and identity politics had preordained a permanent 51 percent “Other” whose minority statuses, as defined by gender and race, had now become a majority, given the destined demise of the white working classes. If Obama had not existed, someone like Corey Booker, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, or Kirsten Gillibrand was supposedly foreordained to be president anyway.
Except that it wasn’t.
Every policy and decision he made lurched the nation further to the left. When Congress and the Senate wouldn’t get him what he wanted, he exercised that infamous ‘pen and a phone’ method.
And what did Obama get to show for it? Not much.
The went into 2016 with smug arrogance that the White House was Hillary’s for the taking. Oops.
A boastful lame-duck Obama was lecturing the nation on the eve of the anticipated Clinton landslide that there was zero chance of any party, much less any nation, warping the U.S. election. Pre-election, a smug Hillary Clinton pontificated that Trump had to grow up and accept the impending verdict of the voters that would shortly demolish his candidacy and humiliate his person. She would add insult to Trump’s injury by sweeping Georgia and Arizona and by a landslide that would reinvigorate the Obama dream.
Indeed, dozens of the careerists and progressive appointees at the Washington FBI, DOJ, CIA, and National Security Council took all sorts of risks to insure a Clinton blowout. They variously sought to warp the FISA court, subvert the Trump campaign, collude with Fusion GPS and its Russian sources, and weaponize the FBI to ensure the Clinton victory — on the premise that their unethical and often illegal behavior would soon be rewarded by the Clintons, who for decades had proven far less ethical than 2016’s miscreant minions.
When the dust had settled, and Obama took that final helicopter trip away from the White House, the Democrats had seen all their wins dwindle away.
Emasculated of any legitimate political power, they put all their efforts into the Resistance.
The relied on the weaponized activist groups to carry on the fight. BLM, Antifa, #MeToo all become proxy fights. Mueller became their great political hope. They began to disparage the ‘unfair’ Electoral College.
Their only remaining consolation was the edge they had in the Supreme Court.
And then Kavanaugh happened.
When Democrats lost, they realized that they still lived in a Republic and not a volatile Athenian democracy — and found this also hard to take.
More exasperating still was the loss of the Supreme Court, the last bastion of elite brilliance and superior morality that might yet save America from the prejudices and ignorance of the irredeemables, deplorables, clingers, and crazies.
