"Stop stealing our democracy"Hey, everyone knew the party of ends justify means...the party of 'I won'...the party of personal destruction cough Palin cough O'Donnell would play the Bush card--they made a promise. No shocker.
Yeah, one could question whether the DNC is even aware that we don't have a democracy but rather a constitutional republic, but that begs another question--how could so many holders of JDs get it so wrong? Perhaps they purposefully meant to equate America to dime a dozen third world "democracies" run by tinpots. Maybe that's where the true hope and change lies.
But the bigger question is why in the world would the president want to wage open warfare with the US Chamber of Commerce--during a recession? Seems just a tad counter-productive, especially since he has two more years to work with them in his laser-like focus on jobs, jobs, jobs and they represent the folks who create lots of jobs, jobs, jobs. So it's very very weird, even from an Axelrod political perspective or even a D'Souza analyzed anti-colonialist viewpoint, unless they are simply figuring their target voters have no clue what a chamber of commerce is or does. Just associate them with Rove and they become evil and must be defeated at all costs (unlike say, the Taliban)!
And that leaves another question, whether this new attack signifies a coming scorched-earth strategy should the Republicans take back control of Congress. Over the past few days there have certainly been stories about 'hand to hand combat' and 'play(ing) hell' by both Obama and Biden in describing how they will guard the change in a post GOP apocalypse (victory) world. And here it seems like just yesterday they were whining about a lack of cooperation from the minority party while condemning them as a party of fear. Go figure.
Oh well, who knows. This is Obama, the enigma. Maybe it's not really a sign of the coming revolución but just some pot rattling to turn out the base, sort of like getting rid of a warmongering general as NSA in favor of a political hack (thanks to the awesomely fortuitous timing of Bob Woodward's new manuscript) a month before the mid-terms and the effect it might have on certain voters. Politics as usual, in other words, the kind of undeliverable Obama said he wouldn't deliver but did. Then again, something about this smacks to a certain degree of truth.
