Ed Schultz: If Romney wins this election, there’ll never be another Democratic president

posted at 9:04 pm on May 30, 2012 by Allahpundit

I’m torn between posting this for the sheer joy of laughing at a leftist blowhard who’s struggling to cope with looming defeat in Wisconsin and wondering if anyone can really be so stupid, including him, as to believe it.

This is basically the liberal-hack version of a religious prophesy. If Scott Walker isn’t sacrificed to appease the gods then, yea, a thousand years of darkness shall fall upon the land.

But it’s pretty clear to me what’s happening here. They are trying to set it up that if Mitt Romney gets elected, if Mitt Romney gets elected, there will never be a Democratic president again in the history of the United States. The future is just, this is the way it’s going to be. There’ll never be a Democratic president in our lifetime again. And when I say in our lifetime, I’m talking about long, long, long, long, long time.

This is why Wisconsin’s so important. The people of the country need to know that you can defeat it. And this in many respects is doing the country a favor, the way they’re operating, the way they’re lying, the way they’re backing up the worst candidate, the worst governor in the country, his record’s horrendous, and who he’s a puppet to.

So that’s why this is so important. They’re trying to make it so Barack Obama doesn’t get re-elected and no Democrat ever will be elected into the White House.

…Yeah. Good point, Ed. Democrats will be totally out of luck in 2016 with Hillary Clinton and Andrew Cuomo on the bench even though President Romney’s likely to face some sort of right-wing challenge from Rand Paul or someone else. But never mind: This idiocy isn’t designed to be taken seriously, it’s designed to horrify the most dimwitted Wisconsin Democrats into turning out on Tuesday. Even so, per BuzzFeed, top Dems are already lowering expectations:

“Win or lose, it’s going to be over-interpreted and over-analyzed by political insiders and the media,” Wisconsin Democratic Party chairman Mike Tate said in a conference call with reporters Wednesday. “Regardless of what happens, it’s going to be a very competitive election in November for the presidential race, the Senate race and on down the ballot.”…

Asked whether the recall race has any impact on the general election, Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter told NBC News’ Chuck Todd Wednesday that she didn’t think so.

“This is a gubernatorial race about a guy who is getting recalled,” she said, adding “It’s not about president Obama at the top of the ticket, and it’s certainly not about Mitt Romney.”

The only variable left that might make things interesting on election day is if Walker suddenly got bad news on jobs, but it looks like the news is all good: According to the AP, an announcement should be coming from the feds on Friday that Walker was right all along when he claimed that Wisconsin gained, not lost, jobs last year. If that’s true, it’s a brutal gut-punch for Tom Barrett with the vote right around the corner. With the jobs picture looking up and Democrats having all but given up on anger at the collective bargaining law taking Walker down, what hope do they have?

Oh, Crazy Eddie… you know how we hate it when you tease.

ZK on May 31, 2012 at 9:28 AM

Imagine the mood of this country after another four years of the mess we’ve already seen.

Murf76 on May 31, 2012 at 9:07 AM

Well put. The democrats have four years to pretend to be something different next time out.

I’m into whatever you’re into baby…

I used to imagine the democrats as being the worthy competition. Now I see the party of slavery, segregation, and abortion for what it is; an ongoing assault on the God-given natural rights that once formed the basis of our country.

Mojave Mark on May 31, 2012 at 9:30 AM

So Ed is being Ed again?

What’s past bizarre is the democrats who line up to be on his show.. I can see where he and Howard Dean would hit it off… but really.. Rush mocks the left in a fairly light tone….. and they call it hate speech. Ed hits all the high notes on the hysteria meter and calls us liars thieves thugs murderers and rounds it out by accusing us of stealing the elections if we win..

What does the left say when called on this?

That Ed’s just being a bad boy but he’s really likeable if you’ve drunk heavily before meeting him?

They don’t even try to hide their hypocrisy anymore.

mark81150 on May 31, 2012 at 9:32 AM

From Ed’s lips to God’s ears.

texanne on May 31, 2012 at 9:35 AM

Such hyperbole. Does this make Obama the God-Emperor of Doom?

Aardvark on May 31, 2012 at 9:36 AM

While I wouldn’t mind at all, it’s such a silly yet characteristic statement by someone on the left. When you can dazzle ‘em with brilliance….

princetrumpet on May 31, 2012 at 9:36 AM

Ed is right in a way. If anti-fraud voting laws become the standard around the country, then the Democrats have much less of a opportunity to steal elections. A few Constitutional SC justices to replace Breyer, Bader-Ginsburg, and Kennedy would be great, too.

I can see this administration having to be removed kicking and screaming. They won’t go quietly, guaranteed.

I think their mindset is the same it was in the Confederacy/ A group of titled big money aristocrats who mostly are born to wealth and believe that everyone else owes them for the privilege that they deign to “serve” in government to rule us ignorant peasant trash. They are the worst kind of royalty wanna be’s. All the hubris, the bad blood, the court intrigue and the raw ambition wrapped in a stolen mantel of civil rights that MLK earned and the democrats jacked when every paper and news organization at the time gave more credit to Northern Republicans than Dixie democrats. There were civil rights democrats.. but not Senator Byrd or Al Gore Senior…

The have since absorbed northern socialists and European effete snobbery. They have all kinds of hard left members now. But the entitled to everything they want mind set drives everything they do. Socialism is just a means to an end for them.. if freedom got them what they wanted they’d support that too.. that so many of the “reality based community” are quick to join in on occupy shows how opportunistic they really are. It’s never been about the poor or the good of the country, just what they can use to gain ever greater power and wealth.

My uncle Joe served in WW II and was a FDR till death democrat.. dad was a Korean war era vet (stationed in Austria during the occupation).. they used to argue the respective merits of their politics and I can tell you a democrat like my uncle who had a state job for the highway department driving dump trucks..

Ed isn’t new.. I heard my uncle spout similar things. Back in the late 60′s early 70′s.. The GOP was a rich man’s party and dad being a cop in a mid to smallish Ohio town…. around 60,000 people then, got the whole lecture about being a traitor to his class. He had all the current lefts ugly prejudices. We were betraying working people. All republicans were rich and joined country clubs and he got red faced when Dad laughed at him for that one.

My point is, the democrats have been demagoguing every issue since before my father could walk. He was born 2 years before FDR was elected. Dad told me that he had been though this haranguing before.

I’ve known democrats as demagogues my whole life..

mark81150 on May 31, 2012 at 10:16 AM

Never having another Democrat President sounds like a good start to making this country a better place.

Imagine a world with no Democrats. Parents could send their children to better schools. The poor would be able to start businesses and rise out of poverty. California and New York would be growing and thriving. People could eat what they want. America would be the world’s leading producer of oil. We could use any light bulb. Employers would bring money back from overseas and use it to hire Americans.

Thanks for giving us a goal to shoot for, Ed!

hawksruleva on May 31, 2012 at 10:17 AM

Never ever! Good.

Bmore on May 31, 2012 at 10:37 AM

OK, Ed, I’ll take you up on that offer?

Will you throw in getting out of Congress as a side-order, too?

If this goes as its looking to go it will be the old 60′s retreads against anyone with an ounce of sanity in the Democratic Party… and that will be by NOV 2012. I’m not seeing any of that famous love for diversity of thought and opinion in the D party these days… the R party has tried to resist it and is getting eaten from the inside-out by the Tea Party folks.

Maybe some really sneaky Tea Party types will start showing up in vacant Democratic Precincts, register as Democrats, take the precincts over and start working with their fellow Tea Partiers to transform the Democratic Party, too.

Before it implodes.

Time’s awasting, Ed.

I never much cared for the two party system, a one party system frightens me no end, so I’ll take a fractured and diverse Democratic Party over its implosion and disintegration. And if you don’t open your door to the outsiders why they just might open it for you… and I’m not talking about OWS here, either.

ajacksonian on May 31, 2012 at 10:40 AM

with Hillary Clinton and Andrew Cuomo on the bench

You are kidding and obviously not a resident of New York.

What- are they going to do for the country what they did for NY?
- Highest state taxes in the nation?
- Highest net population loss?
- Loss of industry? 40,000 alone in the “evil” financial sector.
- Egregious assaults on the Second Amendment and individual rights

They are the epitome of everything wrong with the Democratic Party.

On second though, maybe Schultz is right.

Marcus Traianus on May 31, 2012 at 10:43 AM

C’mon, Ed, LET’S BURN THIS BUILDING TO THE F’ING GROUND!

Folks, let’s see if we can rent the “Obama Pillars” and find a stadium with a jumbotron within our budget, and all hunker down together after voting on Nov 6-7.

waterytart on May 30, 2012 at 9:15 PM

Better still, for the Republican convention, let’s spoof the Obama pillars to demonstrate fiscal austerity. Move the nomination speech to a local high school baseball stadium, and then have 18-inch stonehenge pillars with dwarves dancing about it.

You know, something like this:

BTW, does anyone think that the tape in the abortion clinic is the only one they have? Somehow I don’t think so…… Stay tuned!

Bambi on May 31, 2012 at 10:45 AM

Ed’s lifetime is going to be, as he puts it, long,long,long,long,long. Unless he has the total breakdown he seems headed for. At least Ed is not alone in the maniac corner of human nature, tons of support from similar crazies, a crowd of thousands gone berserk over their politics. Of all things to go nuts for, big, corrupt, central government, with a bloody fool sitting on the top and a mindless crude media leading the lemmings over the cliff.

arand on May 31, 2012 at 10:47 AM

He’s actually right. Think about it. The country is primed for a major economic boom. Just unleashing domestic energy production alone will have a huge impact. Cutting taxes and regulations will just add more fuel to the fire. In the scope of history, the only period in recent history where Democrats held sway in Washington will be associated with economic failure, whereas Republican governance will be associated with economic growth and prosperity. Add to that the rightward drift on social issues such as abortion, and the increasingly clear reality that, yes, there are indeed a shitload of Islamofascists out there who “hate us for who we are” no matter what we try to do to gain their friendship, and you can begin to see that Ed Schultz might be onto something here.

Progressive Heretic on May 31, 2012 at 11:09 AM

BWAHAHAHAHOOHOOHOOHEEHEE!

You’re honestly telling me that if closet-liberal Wrongney gets elected that the Demoncrats won’t win future elections? That’s rich, Ed! Tell us another one!

Very few Democrats have the courage to admit that they are wrong about anything. Most will find some excuse or another. There’s always the old standby, Bush. Also, Obama has been hinting that the Republicans have not been hiring and have been deliberately slowing the economy down to make him look bad. If the economy turns around under Romney, they’ll say it was a delayed reaction to Obama’s policies — and so it goes.

Aardvark on May 31, 2012 at 11:41 AM

This is not good.

One Party is Communism.

I doubt I will post again.

Pray. Pray. Pray.

Do not be fooled.

If Mitt remains the nominee you can kiss freedom goodbye.

I predict Obama endorses Mitt or even becomes Mitts VP.

I hope Hill Air Force base has Utah’s air space well controlled the day after the election. You are just 8 hours of flight school and one box cutter away from flying into the Mormon churches headquarters building.

It wouldn’t work. Mormons aren’t quite that centralized; if their HQ suddenly went down they’d be hurting and might splinter but they wouldn’t collapse.

True, but “Democrats” are only 30% of the population. That 30% will be free to cling to their delusions, but the other 70% will have seen with their own eyes (and wallets) the kind of destruction that Democrat-rule can wreak on our economy and way of life.

They are the worst kind of royalty wanna be’s.

Why the reference to the Confederacy? There is no comparison. Everything that was going on in the South prior to the civil war was constitutionally legal. It was what was agreed upon when the USA was formed. I don’t think you can legitimately make any more case against the ‘titled big money aristocrats’ in the South or in the North. It just so happened that slavery was more prevalent in the South than in the North. The civil war was fought over a way of life, just as all wars that the US gets into, should be. Slavery was wrong, but it was ‘legal’ at the time.
The USA, as other countries, are all about ‘the moneyed people’. I have never held a job that was created by poor people with no assets. So it’s safe to say that we need some people with the ability to provide the resources to provide people with a livelihood. so whether you call them, ‘the rich’ or the ‘titled big money aristocrats’ the effect is the same. So please leave the Confederacy out of it.

This is basically the liberal-hack version of a religious prophesy.

See, I didn’t quite understand how to take that until this AP gem later in the rant:

This idiocy isn’t designed to be taken seriously, it’s designed to horrify the most dimwitted Wisconsin Democrats into turning out on Tuesday.

Oh! I see now! Like liberal-hack prophesy, religious prophesy is merely smart people cynically out-smarting the not-smart people for the evil agenda of the smart people. Got it.

“Win or lose, it’s going to be over-interpreted and over-analyzed by political insiders and the media,” Wisconsin Democratic Party chairman Mike Tate said in a conference call with reporters Wednesday. “Regardless of what happens, it’s going to be a very competitive election in November for the presidential race, the Senate race and on down the ballot.”…

“This is a gubernatorial race about a guy who is getting recalled,” she said, adding “It’s not about president Obama at the top of the ticket, and it’s certainly not about Mitt Romney.”

Basically, the Democrats are now pretty horrified that there is a very real chance that the things they said about conservatism back in 2009 i.e. “dustbin of history” are going to be used to describe them, making them look like they had absolutely no idea that this was even a possibility. They’re not scared about losing power so much as they’re deathly afraid of being proven WRONG in every possible way. Their pride won’t let them cope with this naturally. It’s like when you get into an argument and say something completely wrong, and you’re watching your opponent begin to formulate the exact words that will prove you to be a charlatan.

They’re seeing their fortunes dismantled in slow-motion right now and it must be excruciating for them.

“if Mitt Romney gets elected, there will never be a Democratic president again in the history of the United States.”

In 2008 Democrats were predicting the Republicans would be out of power for a generation! That didn’t happen. Neither will Ed’s current prediction. It’d be absolutely wonderful, though.

Hey Mullahpundit, it’s “prophecy” with a c. (“Prophesy” is a verb.) Anyway, it might be kinda groovy if Schulz offered to sacrifice himself for the good of his party.
