[Note: skip to the 1:02:00 mark to see a more or less historically accurate interpretation of what's going to happen to Democrats on November 6th, 2012 ]
When I was a kid, ABC played a miniseries called “The Last Days of Pompeii” that my grandmother and I watched together; she loved disaster movies from the 70s and 80s because she enjoyed pointing out how stupid most of the people were because they didn’t know the plane was going to crash, the skyscraper catch fire, or the volcano was set to erupt. I don’t remember my grandmother ever using any expletives and she rarely said a bad word about anyone…but the people in these movies who didn’t see the disaster coming were either “ninnies” or “dummies”, and my grandmother would spot and identify them for me like we were out birdwatching. ”Look at that one, stupid ninny,” she’d say, “look at how stupid he is, he doesn’t know the volcano’s going to level the place. How can he not know that?”.
Well, in that person’s defense, he didn’t have a TV Guide back then…or knowledge that he’d one day be a character in a movie called ‘The Last Days of Pompeii”; no doubt he assumed there’d never be a “last day” for Pompeii. If I remember correctly, in that movie an oracle actually assured people that Pompeii would still stand and be known throughout the world long after the Roman Empire itself had collapsed into ruins…which the Pompeiians took as a sign that their days of wine and roses would never come to an end. Ancient prophesies had a funny way of ending up like “twists” in an M. Night Shamylan film (remember him?).
This is how Democrats felt in 2008, with Howard Dean and Donna Brazile convincing them that they could dominate the country demographically by streamlining the party into one of “blacks, urban elite, college voters, Jews, Muslims, gays, and women who want to kill their babies”. The Clintons’ Democrat Leadership Council (a “DLC”, but not the one that Barack Obama belonged to) would be purged from the party and anyone Obama saw as “bitter, clinging” would be shown the door because Donna Brazile, in particular, felt these people were no longer wanted or needed for Democrats to win. Brazile, it should be noted, is also the rocket scientist who advised Al Gore not to use the Clintons in the 2000 election when Bill wanted to be deployed to bring home Arkansas and Tennessee for Gore (two states Gore lost…which would have landed him in the White House if the Clintons had campaigned aggressively in just those TWO STATES).
For most of the last four years now, the Ministry of Truth (Minitru for short) that is the national media has been trumpeting a “Golden Age of Hope and Change” with Democrats remaining in power essentially “forever” because “demographics are on their side!”. This is similar to how others in history have declared their inevitable holds on power were destined to last generations…when in actuality these totalitarians have tended to collapse within just a few years of gaining a stranglehold on their countries in the modern era.
Democrats were absolute fools to believe Donna Brazile and Howard Dean back in 2008. Deciding to push Barack Obama to the presidency and give the Left absolute control over the country was a fatal error that’s going to be corrected on November 6th. Minitru insists this is not happening, and continues to pretend that Democrats will hold power for many years to come. The volcano is rumbling, and these people are still lounging on couches and eating their grapes, completely oblivious to what’s going to happen in just three weeks now.
They are ninnies, as my grandmother would have called them…and tragically stupid as I’ll put it. If they’d have run Hillary Clinton in 2008, then Democrats would have cruised to her re-election this year; Obama would have most likely been her VP and he’d have spent 8 years in the Naval Observatory (most likely observing his own naval) and would have been setup to be president himself in 2016. Democrats would have likely had 12 years in the Oval Office, with Obama destined to be president no matter what (sadly). The Left wanted everything all at once, and it got just four years before the country woke up and booted them out of office (hopefully for generations).
So, it appears we are the beneficiaries of a very interesting historic twist ending to our recent national nightmare. As bad as things are, and as much damage as Barack Obama has done as president, just imagine how much worse things could have been if Democrats had moved slowly and done things under the radar over 12 years instead of trying to cram it all into four years of Obama. Democrats got greedy and wanted Obama to do all the crazy things upfront, thinking they could overpower Americans and force radical change on the country quickly before anyone could resist them. Donna Brazile, in particular, believed that a black president was key to pushing the Left’s agenda because all criticism of him would be countered with charges of — let’s see if you can guess — RACISM so his skin color would give cover for the craziest things Democrats wanted to do.
There’s speculation here in Chicago that Obama couldn’t wait until 2016 for health reasons. Most people on the ground here think Obama has “The Slims”, and that his health will have deteriorated to the point that by 2016 he’d be a gaunt, walking skeleton with all the telltale signs of depending on daily anti-viral cocktails. Others — like me personally — believe Obama has Parkinsons and this, too, would have been far too obvious by 2016 for him to win a national election. He’s already disoriented, bewildered in public, and unable to function on even a basic level without a TelePrompTer. He’s either got “The Slims” or Parkinsons or a serious narcotics addiction…so the man who is the current president of the United States is either sick or a junkie and Democrats needed him in office as quickly as possible (so, Hillary be damned).
Did we actually catch a massive break as a country that Democrats were forced to implement their planned Obama presidency too quickly…pushing the button on this insanity in 2008 instead of 2016 because Obama wouldn’t be healthy enough to do this eight years later?
When the books are written on the last four years, I think it will be clear that most of what Democrats tried to shove through couldn’t have been done if the President was white…because racialist demagoguery was key to making a lot of these things happen. From 2008 through 2010 or so, it was nonstop screams of “If you don’t support Obama, you are a racist!”. Democrats who weren’t leftists (and there used to be some of these in the party) had to go along with whatever Obama wanted because they, too, would have been declared racists for not supporting him. Hence, that Christmas Eve 2009 vote for Obamacare in the Senate where not a single Democrat read the bill or understood what it would do to the country…but they all voted for it anyway. Democrats needed a black president to make that happen, because only the threat of being called racists could make all Democrats in the Senate abandon their constituents and their duties as elected officials and vote for something they never read and didn’t understand.
At the time, Democrats danced around laughing and cheering at what they had done.
They weren’t cheering when the Midterm elections happened in 2010, however.
And they won’t be cheering in three weeks either.
The days of wine, roses, and using false accusations of racism to get whatever they want are coming to an abrupt end when voters’ anger at the party erupts on November 6th.
‘Those ninnies…those dummiess…are all getting what they deserve,” is what I imagine my grandmother would have said. She was a lifelong Democrat who had photos of John F. Kennedy on her walls, but like Kennedy himself she would not have recognized the Democrat Party of today and would have probably switched to being a Republican at this point…much like her grandson (that’s me) did during the “Golden Age of Hope and Change” as well.
Do you see the Democrats’ getting their comeuppance in this election?
Do you think they have any idea what’s about to happen…or do you think Democrats are still drinking the wine and smelling the flowers and pretending the volcano’s not about to erupt all over them?
What’s happening in your part of the country?
How do you think YOUR state will vote?
