Another sign Dems are writing off Obama

The grown-ups in the Democratic Party are looking beyond what they anticipate will be Barack Obama's single term, and positioning themselves to survive the aftermath. How else to explain the words of "Obama surrogate" Ed Rendell, former governor of Pennsylvania and Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, and Hillary Clinton acolyte? Bill McMorris of the Washington Free Beacon reports:

A top Obama surrogate said the president will not have to worry about a swooning media or crowds overcome by fainting spells in 2012.

"The media and the population saw him as this transformative figure [in 2008]; he was the first serious black candidate, a new, young, promising figure," said former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell. "People have sobered to that; the newness has faded and people now see him as another practical politician."

Rendell is known for being blunt, a theme he touches on in his new book, A Nation of Wusses, and a trait that has gotten him in hot water on the campaign trail.

Rendell was a passionate supporter of Hillary Clinton in 2008, and is reputed to remain close to both of the Clintons. As I wrote 11 days ago:

Panic is setting in among the people who ran the Democratic Party prior to the miraculous arrival on the scene of Barack Hussein Obama and the perfect storm of events that propelled him into the White House.

These people, starting with Bill Clinton, the master Democratic politician of our era, can read the tea leaves

The Democratic scorpions are sharing a bottle. Couldn't happen to a nicer party.

    Not that I care much, but the party of FDR, HST and JFK has been in a downwards spiral since LBJ. The political assination of Barry Goldwater was the opening shot in a war of personal distruction that Democrats have waged on everyone with spine to fight them, and whinned when it was waged against their own.

    In recent decades partisanship had deepened as personal attacks have taken precident over policy battles and intellectual debate. And the party most likely to fire the opening shot of each fight, is also the first to claim foul.

    It won't hurt my sence of justice to see them go away.

    republicans are dumb. everything they touch they destroy. these are the same morons (63 percent of them) who believe that Saddam Hussein had WMDs when we invaded in 2003, despite even George W. Bush's acknowledgment that he didn't.

    Let's face it, the economy still sucks, unemployment is still too high, it looks as if we might be heading into another recession, after the latest G20 meeting the Obama looks like he's completely out of touch and ill-informed. None of these things are good for Obama and he and his people are going around trying to tell us that things are better. Just remember what Carville said, "It's the economy, Stupid."

    Our radio stations, especially the A.M. ones are flooded with Right Wing talk radio. I call it hate radio and propaganda. That's all it is. The Republicans always use dishonest tactics to smear their opponents. I call them the party of UGLY. Anything they are for, I'm dead set against.

    I don't know if Obama will win, but I think he should win.

    That's the problem with the Left....other dissenting opinions they want to label as Hate Speech. The LW had Air America and they resorted to violent rhetoric all the time, yet the true belivers from the Left didn't see anything hateful in their rhetoric....whereas LWingers have to interpret "outrage" from Conservative speakers. They came up with the theory of "coded words" which they insist truly reflected what was actually written or spoke.

    If you believe that the Left is the fount of truth, then there is the pity. It also displays a mind that has been closed and eyes that are blinded.

    It's not dissenting opinions that are hateful, but lies and omissions. To say that the Democratic Party is writing off Obama is to say that all those Democratic voters are being written off too. If that isn't hate, what is? But hey, if you tell a lie often enough it becomes the truth, right?

    The man they are talking about in this article is a long-time Democrat Ed Rendell....he's been working the trenches for the Dems for decades..no one has more street cred about the Dem machine than him...
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

    Omissions and deflections are the handiwork of both extreme elements of both parties...to think that only one party is the fount of truth is wrong-headed..for every outrage you can list from the Repubs...I can list two outrages coming from the Left...just sayin. It's up to you to be discerning and not condone the outrages when they come from your party...

    I don't see the Democrats and the left making the claim that Romney is being written off by the Republican party based on something a Democrat said that doesn't necessarily in and of itself represent how he feels about the President. I've seen Fox do that with Clinton's statements as well, just twist them and leave things he's said otherwise that were positive out of it.

    Now if you can show me some left wing extremist making these claims, it isn't mainstream like the claims being made by the Republicans, that we are writing President off. I can assure that most Democrats are not going to be voting for Romney and most of us do not intend to stay home, either.

    No? Really? I could provide all kinds of examples of Dems criticizing Romney because he isn't conservative enough for the Republican party..that's a common mantra at MSNBC

    Another common thing for LW talking heads is to show clips of Romney flip flopping on issues yet they don't report Obama's flip flopping on issues..we are supposed to forget what Obama had said as a senator, or what he has said on the campaign trail, what he said just the year before...

    I don't see this as untruthful in the way the Right has characterized the Democratic party as having written the President off and/or leaving out by omission or lying about anything specifically about him. All this says to me is that Republicans don't agree with all of Romney and Ryan's plans and maybe some religious bias suspected of evangelicals. Michael Steele countered it well and I tend to agree with how he countered both.

    However it seems you forget that this is a Democrat writing off the President, not a right wing anything. The right didn't characterize this, the left did, however somehow you flipped the script and said the right then turned this into a arguement on what the right was doing, never once acknowledging that this is the left making the statements. Can we say truly blinded

    Not quite, the article itself is an attack on the Democrats. Romney is not a favorite, but Republicans will stick with him just like we'll stick with Obama. See you in November.
