Even New York Slimes Admits That ‘Hope And Change’ Likely Means An Obummer Dumbocrat Butt-Kicking

America’s disillusioned liberal elites are already conceding defeat to the conservative revolution

The New York Times’ headline today, “GOP is poised to seize the House, if not the Senate,” says it all, just 10 days ahead of the November 2nd mid-terms. America’s most powerful newspaper, and standard bearer of the liberal elites that have run the United States in the Obama era, for the first time appears to be accepting the likelihood of defeat and acknowledging the scale of the conservative revolution sweeping America.

The Times is now talking of a Washington “on the brink of a substantial shift in the balance of power”, a momentous change driven by a “highly energized grass-roots conservative movement.” As the Grey Lady of US journalism puts it:

President Obama campaigned for a fourth consecutive day on Saturday as the Democratic Party threw its full weight into preventing a defeat of historic proportions in an election shaped by a sour economy, intense debate over the White House’s far-reaching domestic agenda and the rise of a highly energized grass-roots conservative movement…

A wave of anxiety swept across Democrats, regardless of seniority, geographic region or whether they voted for Mr. Obama’s agenda on the hot-button issues of health care, economic stimulus or climate change legislation.

This latest assessment from The New York Times is strikingly different to its analysis exactly three weeks ago when it bullishly declared that “enough contests remain in flux that both parties head into the final four weeks of the campaign with the ability to change the dynamic before Election Day.” In the defiant words of The Times on October 2:

Republicans carry substantial advantages as they move into the final month of the fall campaign, but the resilience of vulnerable Democrats is complicating Republican efforts to lock down enough seats to capture the House and take control of the unsettled electoral battleground.

By now, Republicans had hoped to put away a first layer of Democrats and set their sights on a second tier of incumbents. But the fight for control of Congress is more fluid than it seemed at Labor Day, with Democrats mounting strong resistance in some parts of the country as they try to hold off a potential Republican wave in November.

The New York Times has at last joined the ranks of The Washington Post and Time Magazine, other key pillars of the media establishment, in acknowledging the scale of the impending conservative revolution, and the dire state of the Obama presidency. Perhaps the last outpost of the liberal elites that still believe victory is possible next week is the imperial White House itself, out of touch with reality and public opinion, and clinging to the myth that the midterms are really about “local issues”. When even The New York Times has all but abandoned ship, you know the Left is in serious trouble.
