By now, one must wonder what’s going on.
In recent weeks the following Democrats have gone off the Obama reservation, at times directly challenging Dear Leader in ways that regurgitate for days in the news cycle much to his horror:
Cory Booker, Mayor of Newark, who is now “dead” to the Administration for having the utter honesty to tell a TV reporter that he was nauseated by the attacks on Bain;
Ed Rendell, former Pennsylvania governor, who, while making the rounds promoting a book and promoting Hillary Clinton, appears to savor opportunities to challenge Obama;
Artur Davis, former Alabama congressman, who proclaimed that “this is not Bill Clinton’s party” as he announced that he’s becoming a Republican;
Sen. Diane Feinstein, Democratic Chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, who has excoriated the Obama Administration for sensitive security leaks; and of course…
Bill Big-Dawg Clinton, who has had to walk back so many Obama digs in the past week, aids are now suggesting he’s senile. (Oh, sure. If Bill Clinton is senile then Barack Obama really is the smartest president evah. Whatever).
There are more. There are so many Democratic critics speaking out so often that I’m losing track: Gov. Deval Patrick of Massachusetts; former Obama “Car Czar” Steve Rattner; former Obama advisor Van Jones (of all people!); former Tennessee Rep. Harold Ford; Sen. Chris Coons of Delaware — all of whom have publicly defended Mayor Booker. Fearlessly, I might add.
And now Lanny Davis, former Special Counsel to Bill Clinton, today said this:
“We’re both (speaking of Clinton and Davis) concerned about the tactics (Obama’s) campaign is employing….(He should) talk about his record rather than going negative on Mitt Romney…
“This is how bad it is….Koolaid drinking people — meltdown!”
Surely I’m not the only one who’s noticed that most of these rogue party poopers are Hillary Democrats. What on Clinton’s Earth is going on?
