Obama is pointing his finger in the wrong direction: He’s now blaming Americans’ rejection of his awful agenda on Democrats

Filed under “this is so sad, it’s funny,” it seems Barack Obama has finally lost his golden touch when it comes to campaigning. Sure, he’s still feeding the liberals pablum, and getting dollars.

However, when it gets down to the point where he’s starting to insult the intelligences of the people that supposedly support him, it’s only a matter of time before the donation well will run dry. He’ll always be able to get money from the masochistic liberals that will take anything, including abuse, as long as they’re getting attention from Obama. As for everyone else? This isn’t a good position to be in heading into a mid-term.

It will be very bad for Democrats in November if enough Republicans manage to first pay attention to this nonsensical line Obama is delivering, and second, bother to use it as a roadmap on the campaign trail. T. Beckett Adams did a very good job of reporting precisely what Obama has been saying to the people that were foolish enough to spend thousands of dollars to hear him insult them.

Yes, it was a lot more of the blame game, but now instead of just blaming Bush and Republicans, Obama has taken to blaming Democrats.

“And so the midterms come around, and lo and behold we’re surprised when John Boehner is the Speaker of the House. Say, well, how did that happen?” the president said. “What happened to [Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.]? What happened was you all didn’t work. That’s what happened.”

Yes, he did go there. It’s always a great idea to berate your base for not working hard enough, especially when they’re paying large sums of money to hear you. Again, we’re dealing with Democrats, so they’ll undoubtedly take that abuse, and probably will keep going back for more.

As for Republicans, this means that there is one goal to meet in November. No matter what, voter turnout is highest priority, period. If it takes grassroots groups driving voters to polls, so be it. Get the vote out!

“[A]ll we hear about is gridlock, and all we hear about is posturing, and all we hear about are phony scandals,” he said. “And the truth is, is that what we see on the nightly news or on cable news is just this constant clamor of hot air, and folks posturing and opinionating but not actually doing any work that focuses on the people who sent them there.”

The obligatory bone for the Democratic Party, Obama simply couldn’t tell the truth, and point out that the Democrats in the Senate really are to blame for nothing getting done.

For Republicans, this might turn into well-placed ads pointing out legislation that would have been highly popular in their respective districts - and explaining that the Democrats blocked it in the Senate. Of course, no one needs coaching on how to deal with the phony scandal claims, but just wait. Obama even made that easier for the GOP.

“And most folks don’t have the time to sort out all the intricacies of Obamacare or Benghazi, or this or that. They don’t have time for that. All they know is it’s not working for them. And so people then pull out and they drop out, and they don’t work. And that further entrenches those who are protecting an unjust status quo,” he added.

Maybe Obama skipped reading Dale Carnegie in college - or it didn’t fit in with his studies. Regardless, he isn’t winning any friends by implying that people are too stupid to figure out major issues in the news. Also, the only people he’s really influencing are the ones that were already buying his lies anyway.

So, what’s the Republican response to this? Well, it’s not going to go down well with any big government establishment people, but we need to get back to the conservative roots - as in offering real ideas about reducing the size of government. And we need to promote the narrative that business does more to help people than government ever could. Yes, seems trite, but we are not succeeding in delivering this message.

The public needs to learn that demonizing business leads directly to job losses. We need examples of private industry and charities doing a better job at helping people than the government does.

Most importantly, we need to find better ways to point out that government isn’t meant to take care of the people. And all of that means that older Republicans need to start listening to the young people. The answers to these issues will come from the under 30 demographic, period.

So, it seems that Obama has lost his mojo, and is just wandering around the country delivering speeches that can be used to defeat Democrats across the board this November. The only question is whether or not the GOP will bother to take advantage of that.
