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?

He is right.

The man is right.

With Mitt as our nominee there is no need for a Democratic Party. Mitt is more liberal than most Democrats. Thus they will just all join our party and fold the DNC.

Done one party America. Just like in the old USSR.

Giving a high medal of this nation’s merit to a confirmed Socialist should give everybody a wake up clue. And the so-called 4th Estate that we so cherised in the Constitution as the freedom of speech – The 4-flusher Estate is absolutely in cahoots with the biggest, and largest, dim-witt bulb in the universe!

The bolded part is the only thing that may be correct. The rest of this entire post is a boldface lie by these liberal hacks. Nothing to date is more important than to set the tone of the nation in Wisconsin—NOTHING!

Rovin on May 30, 2012 at 9:15 PM

Departing from trademark bluster, Schultz warned that victory for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker could foreshadow President Obama’s defeat in the fall — and a permanent GOP lock on the presidency

Remember New York 23 in 2009? An obvious harbinger of future Republican ruination, if I recall my media narratives correctly. Suddenly special elections have no larger import whatsoever. Funny how that works.

steebo77 on May 30, 2012 at 9:16 PM

it’d be funny as all he11 for Scotty W to be declared the winner at ~8-9pm and to have he and Mittmeister give a joint press conference at the Capitol Bldg in Madison where the fleebaggers, socialist teachers, and all those faux doctors camped out for no good reason and cost the taxpayers oodles of coin. The ball spiking would be awesome, IMO>

Schadenfreude on May 30, 2012 at 9:19 PM

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

If they’re dumb enough to take Ed Schultz seriously, they’re probably too stupid to understand how to turn the knob and open the door that leads out of their house (or taxpayer-subsidized apartment, or whatever), so we probably don’t need to worry about such people showing up in any significant numbers at the polls on Tuesday.

AZCoyote on May 30, 2012 at 9:19 PM

I’d like to believe it, and considering how irredeemably horrible Obama has been, it would only be fair that he destroys his party’s Presidential chance for a couple of generations. Let’s work like crazy to make Ed Schultz right for once.

And AP: Hillary Clinton will never be President. If she couldn’t do it with all of the advantages she had in 2008, she will not win it in 2016 or afterward. Meanwhile Andy Cuomo will go at least two full terms as NY Governor. The Presidency hasn’t changed party in 3 consecutive elections in more than a century.

Of course, that’s a dream scenario… not at all likely, but the end of the Democratic party is the one greatest occurrence that can guarantee this great nation avoids Communism.

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

Yahoo News had a story running yesterday (may still be there) about “astrologers prophesizing” that Obama was going to be re-elected and making various woeful boasts about, oh, poor Romney, he loses, Mercury in retrograde, woe, the bright light, it burns..

What’s next, Palm Readers United broadcasting their latest “read” that Obama “will win”? Maybe braying donkeys, that’d do it, right? A brigade of circus clowns wearing Obama masks?

The Bible says we are not to listen to people engaged in the occult. But apparently Obama and the Left sure do rely on them.

Step away from the crack pipe, Steve. Now you’re starting to sound like that fat, redheaded piece of crap.

Lanceman on May 30, 2012 at 9:36 PM

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.

OK, Schultz is a hyperpartisan, hyperventilating loon.

But he also has a point. Namely, that after first Clinton, and then Obama, the Democratic Party as it exists has very little credit left except on the far left. Obama yammered about the GOP “driving the country into the ditch” (when the Democrats controlled Congress), and then proceeded to try to drive it off a cliff (with the Dem-controlled Congress putting a brick on the gas pedal). And that’s not even factoring in their foreign-policy disasters over the last couple of decades. (I’m carefully not mentioning President Carter, you notice.)

The last time a political party in the U.S. blotted its copybook this badly was in the runup to the American Civil War. That time, it was the old Democratic Republican Party, that split into first the Whigs (Lincoln ran for President as a Whig in 1860) and then the Republicans, on one side.

The other half, of course, became the Democratic Party- and proceeded to try to destroy the country rather than give up on “the South’s peculiar institution”- plus various other “perks of power” they felt entitled to.

Cheating to get their way was big on that side, then, as well; look up “Samuel Tilden Presidential election scandal 1876″. (Or just get a copy of The Codebreakers by David Kahn and read Chapter 7, “Crises of the Union”.)

Since then, the Democratic Party has been characterized by long periods of de facto insanity punctuated by occasional outbreaks of lucidity. Plus a lot of lying, cheating, hate-mongering, and general anti-social behavior.

And I believe the electorate has had about as much as they can tolerate. Because it never seems to change.

Yes, the Democratic Party as it is right now may have a very hard time electing another President. Which means they’ll have to change their tune, their dogmas, and the way they do business.

I expect the “true believers” in the Party, like Schultz, to fight tooth-and-nail against any such change. And if they succeed in preventing it, future history books will file the Democratic Party right next to the Free Silver boys and the Know-Nothings.

And it will be their own damned fault, no one else’s.

I don’t know who is worse – you with your doomsday predictions if Romney is elected – or – the blue gilled one with Romney juice dripping down her chin.

I detest Ed Shultz.

Did you know he played football in the CFL?

And Canada didn’t keep him? I wonder why.

Really? Republicans trying to make it so Republicans win every presidential election? Wow. Good thing Democrats don’t want that too.

Man, this guy”s an idiot. And yeah, this kind of scare logic really can only work on the lemmingist of lemmings.

OK Ed, I’m definitely watching MSNBC’s election coverage in Nov. SOLD!

It’s going to be…emotional.

People thought that after Reagan trounced Carter in 1980. It wasn’t true then, though two very Carter-like Marxist Dems, Mondale and Dukakis were handily defeated in 1984 and 1988. I suppose it DID matter that Clinton was elected in 1992 and, for the first time since JFK actually wasn’t an economy destroying democrat President that people felt safe replacing Bush with the UberCool First Black President DopEnChange.

The cataclysmic Obama years, because they happened WITHIN living memory of the disastrous Carter years MAY have a negative influence on `Rats being elected President for awhile though… The Carter stigma was STILL strong enough in 1992 that the `Rat Party had to at least PRETEND that Clinton was a “new democrat” and not a marxist socialist like Carter, Mondale and Dukakis…

Thing is, the `Rats have spent the last several years purging their ranks of anyone even CLOSE to being half-sane (even purging Lieberman, who frankly is the only trustworthy member OF that party) that they don’t really HAVE anyone on the bench who could pull that off! People have been reminded what happens when they elect openly liberal democrats, and likely WONT elect another openly liberal one for at least a couple more cycles. The trick is the `Rats have to find a not so openly liberal to run, and they don’t really have that.

Funny…I predicted in 2008 that if Obama was elected there would never be another Democrat elected for at least a generation…

kbTexan on May 30, 2012 at 9:39 PM

The Democrats must have whiplash! First Old Snakehead proclaims “40 years of Democrat Rule” and now Schultz proclaims an end to ALL DEMOCRAT PRESIDENTS if Romney is elected.

I can’t help noting the set up that Downer Debbie gave him with her announcement that… as the election in Wisconsin goes.. so goes the general.

Gee… it must be tough being a Democrat these days… with their own side trying to manipulate them through threats and fear.

hysterical stuff from the left. the evil Koch brothers AND Bush’s Brain getting together!!!!!!

Republican super PACs and other outside groups shaped by a loose network of prominent conservatives – including Karl Rove, the Koch brothers and Tom Donohue of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce – plan to spend roughly $1 billion on November’s elections for the White House and control of Congress, according to officials familiar with the groups’ internal operations.

You didn’t see her comment this morning in the perpetual candidate thread? I was reaching for a barf bag before getting half way though it.

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.

Did you fall off the washer again? You have to hop off before the end of the spin cycle.

They know after the 100 years it took the left to get where it is and it and can be undone in 2 years and never go back. They are so close to victory they can taste. Scott Walker did and Mitt Romney could undo everything. The open radicals of the 60′s who almost got what they wanted and then had to go in hiding in the schools know they will not get another chance in their life times so they have this one last shot, now or never. For them to get another shot the left will eat it self and have to change names and new full party.

The communists went all in the Democratic party and then for that ideology to come back after a lost at the 3 inch line it would have to start from the ground up in a two party system the democrats would go the way of the wigs and have to be part of a third party that takes 20 years to work there way up.

In reality the tea party take over of the GOP was easier as it only had progressives to the right. When the Democrats have to clean up what is left they will have nothing but big government than no one would want right or left.

It won’t be as quiet as Jonestown. They’ll probably all take that super-strength LSD and start eating each other’s faces.

Since then, the Democratic Party has been characterized by long periods of de facto insanity punctuated by occasional outbreaks of lucidity. Plus a lot of lying, cheating, hate-mongering, and general anti-social behavior.

And I believe the electorate has had about as much as they can tolerate. Because it never seems to change…

eon on May 30, 2012 at 9:36 PM

The only plus available via Left-Obama-media is that as they are losing and as they lose, they become increasingly less concealing about their mental problems. Leading into losing times, they increasingly screech, yell, blast out with dopey accusations (even dopier than usual)…

Schultz is just letting off steam now because he’s seen the writing on the wall and it says: SCOTT WALKER WINS AND OBAMA LOSES.
