Not only are both President Obama and his party absolutely tanking in the polls – including in states/districts once seen as “safe”, not only is his agenda deeply unpopular with the American public, but now he gets the news that the guy who his campaign vilified while on the 2008 primary campaign trail as a secret racist, the guy who black Democrats said needed to set aside a time for racial “wound healing” and who demanded he “back off” Obama, the guy whose economy he trashed … is more of a help to his Democrat colleagues across America in an important election year than the (former) Golden One himself.
These are sad, sad days for BarryO and company. The mighty are indeed falling. Just how far we’ll find out in the next couple of weeks.
