It’s no longer a matter of if, but when the “power elite” among the Democrats make their way to the White House for the Democrat equivalent of a Nixonian moment. Mr. President, for the good of the country and our party you must step down. Obama knows it’s coming. He will not initially accept their demands until they inform him that a primary challenge will be run against him, all or most of the funds in the DNC coffers will go to the primary candidate, and the 23 Democrat Senators needing to keep their claw like grasp on powers and perks with be telling him they will campaign against him. They want major distance from this loser and his failed policies.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.
Well, it seems several Left-wingers have made posts on this site about Republicans being afraid to run against Obama in 2012… they need to look closer to home as many Democrats are angry with Obama and there is now a rift even among Liberals after his actions where Libya is concerned. Much as Ted Kennedy split against Jimmy Carter after the midterm elections and then ran against him in the 1980 elections, there are several prominent Democrats planning to run against Obama.
Debbie “Stabindaback has nominated Al Franken, Dean want’s Pee Wee Herman, Jim Roosevelt nominated Teddy Kennedy and was reminded that he was dead. His reply, “Well I forgot, but he’s no deader than our party in 2012.”
The most prominent of these seems to be Dennis Kucinich who, as some of you may recall, called for the impeachment of Obama over the Libya fiasco. Russ Feingold may have lost in November, but he too is being considered as he’s certainly free now to make such a run. While he says he will not run against Obama in 2012, he is strongly supportive that someone must run against him leading many to think he could talk himself into the job if he doesn’t see others doing it over the next several months.
But the most amazing possibility is California Governor Jerry Brown as people who know him are saying he’s considering a run after coming to the view as Governor that there’s not much he can actually do as Governor to resolve California’s problems… but as President he would have the power to do this as he would focus inward on domestic issues and withdraw us from foreign conflicts.
Howard Dean has stated he will not run against Obama but his stand against Obamacare and his anger concerning Obama’s record on foreign military affairs have some of his insiders thinking he may give it a run with people like Keith Olbermann openly calling on him to do so.
In fact, some Democrats like Dick Morris say the situation in Libya has so angered many on the left that if a Democrat doesn’t run against him to fire up the Democrat Party… it all but guarantees a Republican victory because many Democrats will not be voting in 2012 just as we saw many of them not vote in 2010. Democrats are demoralized, they have lost faith in the President and many now view that voting for him is like casting a vote for George Bush jr because his policies have been almost identical to the ex President.
