Blame The Voters

Another winning strategy the Democrats are using to ensure their defeat in November that's even worse than the first one I wrote about? Would you believe blaming the voters? Yeah, that ought to work.

Said [Senator] Kerry, "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." Bay State voters are surely thrilled to be represented by a man so respectful of their concerns.

This week President Obama chimed in with another uplifting message about the American electorate. Mr. Obama told Rolling Stone that the tea party movement is financed and directed by "powerful, special-interest lobbies." But this doesn't mean that tea party groups are composed entirely of corporate puppets. Mr. Obama graciously implied that a small subset of the movement is simply motivated by bigotry.

I guess that's true if one defines bigotry as exercising the right to disagree with The One and his minions, Pelosi and Reid.

From the comments section of the WSJ piece linked above comes this observation:

The problem President Obama represents for the Democrats is that he is their choice for President. After quite a bit of care and thinking and strategy, they offered him up as their standard for the person they most wanted to be their President, our President. Confidently they proclaimed him to be their ideal "leader."

Yet, what Americans want from Their Leader is someone prepared to be Commander in Chief. Obama is, instead, Complainer in Chief. He is Whiner in Chief. He is Denigrator in Chief. He is Apologizer in Chief. He is Berater in Chief. In short, he is entirely non-Presidential.

Barack Obama, rather than being President for All The People, sees himself as for Only Some of the People. The nation wanted to get past partisan, Obama took us deeper into partisanship. The nation wanted a bit less unilateralism, Obama absolutely has shown us it is his way or the highway. Barack Obama, rather than being the Uniter he promised to be, has been most purposefully the Divider, appealing to class warfare, envy, and imagined racial bigotry.

And should the Democrats suffer a November slaughter, the blame will be laid solely upon the voters who were too stupid to recognize the Democrat elite as being far superior to us and the only ones capable of running our lives for us. It will be because we were incapable of coming under the sway of their grand vision and therefore mentally defective. And it will be our fault because we weren't willing to surrender ourselves into state slavery as so many others already have, and letting the Left do our thinking for us.

Or it will be the fault of the voters who saw where the Left has been trying to take us and decided to say “Stop! No more! Not one step further into servitude! We are free men and women and we make our own choices and run our own lives because you are neither smart enough or wise enough to do so, and you never will be.

So yes, it is we the voters who should be blamed for Obama's and Pelosi's and Reid's failure to implement their dystopian plan. Not because we're too stupid but because we're too smart.

But that doesn't fit into the Left's narrative, does it?
