“Obama’s base crumbling amid health care debacle”
So notes David Freddoso, citing decreasing confidence in and/or favorability for the law among many Democrats.
Fortunately, what’s really happening is that many Democrats are learning that they were never part of Obama’s base — that their rote determination or their habitual and perfunctory inclination to always vote Democrat has led them to empower those among the New Left, once vehement critics of the Democrat Party, who have taken the party over, keeping its name but not its governing philosophy.
That is, they are waking up — and upon doing so, they realize that all the noise they’ve been picking up about the evils of conservatives and teabaggers may just have been a tad misleading, and that they have themselves, through their own intellectual indolence and an incurious complacency, proved the cause of their own current suffering.
Elections have consequences. I know this, because I heard a dem-God say it. Then he went out and became his very own performative.
