“I think there’s a tremendous amount of upset and anger in this country about where we are economically. That’s not a surprise to us in this administration because…in many ways we’re here because of that upset and anger. That upset and anger, quite frankly, dates much farther back than simply the 2008 election."Ooops. Damn! I forgot they've caught on to the "Blame Bush" fallback. Backpedal, backpedal ....
"That’s not to talk about any previous administration, except for quite some time the middle class has thought that Washington was looking out for Washington and the big special interests, and not looking out for them. I don’t think there’s any doubt of that.”Baghdad 'Bama on the Scott Brown win:
"Certainly, I think a lot of us were surprised about where this was going, about a week ago. Here's my assessment of not just the vote in Massachusetts, but the mood around the country: The same thing that swept Brown into office swept me into office -- not just because of what happened in the last year or two years, but what's happened over the last eight years."Note the direct reference to "the last 8 years" ... and no backpedaling.
So it's pretty clear that's the Administration's official position. Voters are just mad, still mad at Bush, and they're irrational (except when they vote for Democrats). Only now they can't blame it all on the dumb hicks in "flyover country". This is those people in Massachusetts who've been wisely electing Democrats to Congress for decades. They were so wise just last fall, giving Obama a 26 point victory. But they've apparently suddenly gotten dumb. Welcome to our world here in "flyover country", Massachusetts. How quickly they turn on you, eh? They'll call you every name in the book. The narrative is coming unraveled so fast there is desperation & panic, and apparently the reaction is to pour it on faster and thicker and pretend that it's not happening.
Any of this sound familiar? You can't possibly be against what his administration and PelosiReid are trying to do. Totalitarians think if they tell the proletariat what to think, that will become reality. Remember the original "Baghdad Bob"?
Nice Baghdad Bob quote collection here.
