Democrats Are Irresponsible, Whiny And Ignorant – Just Ask Obama, Biden And Kerry

September 29, 2010

Barack Obama actually left and interview and then came back to deliver this stinger against Democrats:

One closing remark that I want to make: It is inexcusable for any Democrat or progressive right now to stand on the sidelines in this midterm election. There may be complaints about us not having gotten certain things done, not fast enough, making certain legislative compromises. But right now, we’ve got a choice between a Republican Party that has moved to the right of George Bush and is looking to lock in the same policies that got us into these disasters in the first place, versus an administration that, with some admitted warts, has been the most successful administration in a generation in moving progressive agendas forward.

The idea that we’ve got a lack of enthusiasm in the Democratic base, that people are sitting on their hands complaining, is just irresponsible.

Vice President Joe Biden offered this pearl of wisdom for the Democrat base:

Vice President Joe Biden stoked a firestorm of liberal discontent with President Barack Obama on Monday – demanding that the Democratic base “stop whining” and start fighting Republicans instead of the White House.

Biden, speaking at a frozen yogurt plant in New Hampshire, said he wanted to “remind our base constituency to stop whining and get out there and look at the alternatives. This President has done an incredible job. He’s kept his promises.”

The comments echo Obama’s own recent calls to demobilized Democrats to slough off their apathy – and their disappointment in him – and gear up ahead of the midterms, when Democrats are facing devastating losses.

Senator John Kerry – the previous Democrat presidential candidate – offered his assessment of the Democrat’s level of awareness and intelligence:

A testy U.S. Sen. John F. Kerry yesterday blamed clueless voters with short attention spans for the uphill battle beleaguered Democrats are facing against Republicans across the nation.

“We have an electorate that doesn’t always pay that much attention to what’s going on so people are influenced by a simple slogan rather than the facts or the truth or what’s happening,” Kerry told reporters after touring the Boston Medical Center yesterday.

Conservative political blogger William Jacobson, who writes Legal Insurrection, immediately pounced on Kerry’s comments, saying that attitude is why voters are looking to shake up Capitol Hill by electing upstart candidates such as U.S. Sen. Scott Brown.

“It just continues the Democrats’ theme that the reason people are upset is because they don’t understand. They’re not smart enough. That sort of rhetoric just gets people even more upset,” said Jacobson.

So, let us wrap up Democrats, in the words of those who know them best: they are irresponsible, whiny, and ignorant people.

Leave it to Brit Hume to put it all together for us:

At one time or another, President Obama has attacked Wall Street for its greed, doctors for their greed and insurance companies for theirs.

He has never stopped attacking the Bush administration. He has attacked the Tea Party movement and the Republican leadership. None of this seems to have worked very well, with the president’s poll ratings at new lows and even such liberals as Wisconsin’s Russ Feingold hesitant to appear with him.

So now the president and his allies are trying something new — they are attacking their own voters.

At the end of that Rolling Stone interview, mentioned earlier, the president came back into the room and spoke, the magazine said, with intensity and passion. He said: “It is inexcusable for any Democrat or progressive right now to stand on the sidelines in this midterm election.” The apathy among Democrats, he said, is “irresponsible.”

Meanwhile, of course, Vice President Biden was telling Democrats to “stop whining.” And Senator Kerry lamented that “we have an electorate that doesn’t always pay that much attention to what’s going on.”

Mr. Obama and his allies are certainly not the first politicians to think the voters insufficiently appreciative of their wondrous achievements. But they may be the first to attack their supporters publicly for being irresponsible, whiny and ignorant.

Just remember, Democrats.  It’s YOUR fault you suck.  Don’t you DARE blame Obama; he’s like a god to you, and you’re like little tiny wingless insects to him.

The fact is that Barack Obama is at his quintessential core a demagogue.  Yes, as Brit Hume pointed out, he has as a matter of routine viciously attacked his political opponents.  But whenever he has been criticized, the most thin-skinned demagogue ever to occupy the White House has lashed out – even at his closest allies.  Remember his administration’s angry unloading upon the “professional left”?

Obama is awesome.  You must not only say he is awesome; you must believe in your subconscious.  Or “he will bury you.”

Obama is better than Jeezus.  And if you think he’s done anything wrong, it just goes to prove that you’re stupid.  And it just further proves that you need a giant government nanny state to oversee every detail of your miserable, useless, pathetic life.

How dare you criticize your messiah when you should be on your face worshiping his stimulus, his health care plan, and his cap-and-trade system.

Obama can do no wrong, and so criticizing him is as close to blasphemy as you can get.

Now please look back at the image of Emmanuel Goldstein I mean George Bush and return to your two minutes’ I mean two years’ hate.
