The thing is, the Obama approach works once.

It’s why his vote fell off in 2012.
You can only be the first black President one time. You can only be the Progressive Messiah once. It’s not that the coalition that supported Obama is temporary. It’s that its natural size is not enough to win elections. Without some way to get these people infuriated enough to vote in bulk, it is a loser hand. 2010 was a GOP blowout, despite the fact even the most loyal Republican thinks the party is run by idiots. 2014 is looking like another blowout, even though the GOP is just a little more popular than cancer.

Your Say

Yeah its so one-time it worked twice.

Remember when everyone was talking about how the Democrats were going to get demolished in congress in 2012? The Republicans might even win the Senate! Remember that?

Apparently people have forgotten.

Once, twice . . .it's been enough to ruin us. I once thought that we would be able to suffer rule by Obama because the system was set up so that no one man could damage it so that things couldn't be set right. Wrong!

One man can do that, if a couple of hundred hang back and do nothing.

There hasn't been a president in that WH for close to thirty years now.
