Democrats Believe Obama is in Trouble, But Republicans Don’t
Now, I think that these Democrats are scared to death. I think rank-and-file Democrats are scared to death. They see what we see. They see the economic destruction. Some of them like it because it leads to chaos and will lead to ever larger government, ostensibly to fix all of this. But they see it; they know what we know. They also know they have the media on their side to smooth it over. But that’s not my point. The Republican establishment doesn’t see it.
I am convinced that the Democrats, they know they’ve got a president that’s running for reelection they cannot go out and defend. They have to get him reelected some other way, but they can’t go defend his record. They don’t want to appear with him on the stump. They don’t want him appearing with them at their reelection efforts. They know how destructive Obama’s been. But the Republican establishment and the Democrat left are doing everything they can to convince us conservatives that Obama’s reelection is inevitable.
I went on Greta Van Susteren before Christmas, and she gave me the whole hour and then they replayed it on the 29th. I checked e-mail reaction to it, and there was a lot, but one of the things that got the most reaction (there were two or three) was when I said that the Republican establishment doesn’t think Obama can be beat. People reacted to that to me in emails, “Do you really believe that? Is that really true?” Yes! They don’t think Obama can be beat. They are focused on winning the Senate. They think he’s an incumbent and the reason they think that he can’t be beat is because they don’t have the guts to run against him because he’s black.
They don’t want to be called a racist. You’ve got McCain out there ripping Newt for using the word “liar” talking about Romney. (impression) “That’s right, Mr. Limbaugh! We don’t do that in politics. We don’t call our opponents liars unless they have incontrovertible proof, see?” Well, they do! They call us every name in the book, but we’re not gonna call them anything. So the Democrats know they’ve got a guy they can’t defend. They’ve got a guy whose record they can’t defend. The Democrats have a guy that they do not want joining them on their stage when they run for reelection, but our own establishment is trying to convince us that Obama’s reelection is inevitable.
