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?
