I saved this leaftlet the Obama campaign was handing in 2008 because I knew it will come in handy
That leaflet that was the net change after 2 elections (1994 and 200) was circulated by the Obama campaign.
After telling Marion Berry in 2009 that this will be different than 1994 because “This time you got ME”
Well, this is what “ME” got in just one election
Senate – add one seat from last December special election – 6+1
and 13 state legislatures.
8 years of the Clintons vs 2 years of Obama! With the media investigating Clinton non-stop and making Obama the Messiah little difference.
Of course, Obama doesn’t think this is his fault and is ready to compromise some moore
But the president is said to not view the Republican wave as a personal rebuke. Rather, he sees it as an indication of continued economic anxiety and an admonition for both parties to work together. Some of the “no compromise” rhetoric Republicans are using is a misreading of the public mood, a senior White House official said.
It was only Clinton’s fault back them as IACF.
And about that economic anxiety – whose job was to fix that? Clinton’s?
The results will surprise you
I also loved this from the comments
I wasn’t sure if I wanted to comment on this story when I read it this morning.
I know I had a good chuckle thinking that karma was a bitch at the memory of M0 chastising Hillary for Bill’s infidelity
Beyond that, it’s none of my business what they do in private.
But if the Enquirer got it right again, I will compare the media coverage now and in the 90s.
And whether this proves to be true or not, I shall enjoy the B0bots panic

Some of the idiots here need to think before they post!
Larry Sinclair is brought up
11. Yeah, it’s kinda funny though
Remember when that attention seeking douchebag Larry Sinclair came up with some story about how he and Obama were having a gay-sex-and-cocaine-fueled affair? And how even though he couldn’t back up any of his claims, and failed any and every polygraph test he was put to, the Republicans thought he was totally legit?
Well now apparently they can’t make up their minds because according to Larry Sinclair, Obama’s gay. But they want to believe this new ‘story’ about him cheating with a woman. So apparently they can’t even settle on his sexuality.
and a lot of nervous laughter. And a healthy dose of CDS from a Deaniac
After what happened to Bill Clinton there will never be another Democratic President STUPID enough
cheat…and Obama is NOT stupid.
Always good to remember who these people are – because there have been a few instances lately I almost felt sorry for them.
And while I don’t really want to know anything about Obama’s personal life, when I see some of those posts – and remember M), I almost want this to be true.
Today in irony: Here’s a headline I read this morning that made me laugh out loud
In Ohio, Democrats cast themselves as outsiders
Ohio’s U.S. Senate campaign offers an excellent preview of what this fall’s midterm elections will be like: Everyone in the race wants to be an outsider, everyone pledges to break with politics as usual, and everyone is talking about jobs.
Some of it is sincere form of flattery of Scott Brown
In a year when independence seems chic, Brunner argues that she might be the Democrats’ answer to Scott Brown, who rode his outsider status and his pickup truck to an unanticipated Republican victory that shook the nation.
“I do drive a pickup truck,” Brunner says, “but I was already doing it — I needed it for my dogs.”
The article goes in the specifics of this particular primary race but barely touches on the reasons for these outlandish claims from the party in power of being outsiders. In fact the words “distancing themselves from Obama” never come into play. Remember the rule, kids: when it’s bad news its “Washington, Feds”. When it’s good news, it’s Obama. Bush”. For Clinton it plays in reverse. Here’s how it’s applied here
As for the fall, Fisher believes that several more months of economic growth will improve the climate for Democrats. And he adds: “Much of the unrest and anger we’re seeing is directed much more at Washington and Wall Street than at any particular political party.”
Dream on, candidate. Whatever the economy might do, there won’t be any improvement in jobs for the next 5 years. That’s the part of the economy voters care about – the rest is just rhetoric.
So, let’s face it: outsider in this case is code for “I didn’t vote for Obama’s mandates “
Which, considering that Ohio went to Hillary in the primaries, is doubly sweet.
For added fun, think of Democratic incumbents who were actually in ” evil” Washington, doing Washington things with the Wall Street guys. What will their narrative be?
And this is your schadenfreude thought for the day.
This is not a joke. The most popular discussion in B0botland is
Bullying on DU
Someone who was actually there since February 2008 just noticed
Not to be all bullying this, bullying that, but I have noticed something really kind of disturbing especially since we have been talking about bullying lately.
I have noticed that when someone doesn’t agree with someone else’s response on certain threads, they are met with what can only be described as bullying.
This is meant as a rhetorical question.
Why is it necessary to go after someone because you disagree with them. I see nastiness and sarcasm talking to people like they are idiots for having certain points of view.
No shit, Sherlock! And where were you when someone proposed that all supporters of candidates other than Obama be banned?
Where were you when “grave dancing” threads were littering the “best” page for anyone the mob disagreed with?
Or when hordes of , well, you were stalking Hillary supporters in the Hillary group and then other websites on the internet?
Or when those threads in the image bellow made “Greatest” (hint: April 2008)
One has to go through the many answers to see who is feeling victimized this time
276. Well, there are conservative-leaning Dems who HATE “loony lefties”
And that hatred, and w/some, coupled w/an actual agenda to shift the framework rightward, can definitely lead those type of people to go to unknown lengths to smear/attack lib lefties….point of clarification: many DUers are to the left of center, yet the real haters on board are to the right of it, and their primary enemies are far to the left of center, so what they do is attempt to negatively frame those types within the minds of the more middle of the road posters in order to win them over to the more pro-corporate, pro-authority, pro-war side of things
+ 1. That has certainly been my experience.
It was easier when we were all opposed to the war and to expanded drilling, etc.
283. Hard right “conservative Democrats” are allowed to attack the Party’s traditonal base here on DU.
Don’t blame the posters in general–this is a policy decision from up top.
I would have preferred to see the operatives complaining, but these new victims were the bullies from yesteryear. This sounds very familiar
285. It will never change. That’s why I rarely post here anymore.
When I posted about my medical problems, some of the more prominent people at DU actually kicked me when I was down…in order to defend their precious president! Most of my post didn’t even concern President Obama, nor was there a 1:1 correlation between Obama and my medical problems. But instead of looking at the rest of what I had to say, Obama Cheerleaders were out in force to hurt me when I was already hurting.
You know who you are.
DU is toxic.
I swing by occasionally, but usually don’t stay long because I’m appalled at the way DUers treat one another.
Yup. I knew several thusands people who declared DU toxic back in 2008 and went elsewhere. Because of all of you. So cry me a river. Then figure out what’s going on. We did. Oh, wait, this guy almost got it
265. People disagree on what it means to be a Democrat
There is a fight being waged now, and has been for decades, over the soul of the Democratic party. When you have a place for “Democrats” to communicate, the struggle plays itself out here. There are many of us here who are liberals. Politicians promise us the moon during campaigns and elections, and spends the rest of their time distancing themselves from us. They take our contributions, our work, our involvement, and our votes, and then tell the media that we’re a bunch of irrelevant smelly hippies. Sorry that there’s bullying going on. Sometimes, when people have an opinion that discounts, downplays, or dismisses the priorities we worked hard to advance, it seems as if the person expressing that opinion is attempting to silence or marginalize the more liberal element in the party, just as our politicians have been doing. It is very frustrating to work hard for something and to get very little out of it.
There are at least 2 very different factions under the “Democratic” umbrella. They are both fighting for dominance. There is going to be unpleasant exchange until we can all agree on policy. That won’t be happening any time soon.
And who is missing from this debate? Why all the operatives who do the bullying lately.
Outsider and invisible, I am passing the popcorn.
As for the bullies attitude, it can be summed up by this post
This country is too stupid for its president.That’s all
