This strangest thing about this moment is almost every Dem is acting as if Obama's first term was a horrible failure but no one wants to explicitly say that. https://t.co/CuyrgEN6XT— Jon Walker (@JonWalkerDC) February 2, 2021
So, let's do a rundown of the 2009-10 Obama years and what happened:
- Democratic Governors, from 29 to 16.
- Control of state legislatures, and redistricting, from 59% to 31%. (over 1000 state leg seats)
- Double digit losses in the Senate.
- Over 5 dozen loses in the House.
Why would even the most psychopathic Democrat, or Jim Manchin (but I repeat myself) want even a small piece of such a disaster?
The answer is that they don't which indicates that the Democratic Party establishment (There is no Democratic Party establishment) might actually have a small learning curve.
I never believed that I would be able to write that in a non-ironic way.
