Because Donald Sensing nails it…hard. This is exactly what the Stuttering Cluster Fuck of a Miserable Failure is trying to accomplish, with the help traitors McCain, Graham, Rubio, Boehner et al.

Peggy Noonan: Obama Got To Point Where People Stopped Listening To Him Faster Than Most Presidents
There’s an old saying, “Develop a reputation as an early riser and you can sleep until noon with impunity.”
Obama wants you to stop paying attention. He wants to be thought of broadly by the public as out of touch, somewhat irrelevant, ineffective and unworthy of close attention. Then he simply intensifies his destructive economic agenda and hazardous foreign policy with little public oversight. That way people are less likely to take political notice of things like this:
Four out of 5 U.S. adults struggle with joblessness, near poverty or reliance on welfare for at least parts of their lives, a sign of deteriorating economic security and an elusive American dream.
The economy has never grown much more than by minuscule amounts during the Obama administration. Gross domestic product has grown at an anemic pace since he’s been in the White House, barely sputtering at 1.8 percent in the first quarter of 2013. Unemployment under Mr. Obama has averaged a discouraging 8.8 percent and still tops out at 7.6 percent.
And yet even Bloomberg columnist Meg McArdle doesn’t get what’s going on when, commenting on this month’s speech by the president in Galeburg, Ill., she wrote that Obama’s Speech Is a Confession of Impotence.
No, it’s not. Obama;s recent speeches on his economic policy have been derided both Left and Right as offering nothing new, just more of the same-o, same-o that he’s been blathering about for five years.
Which it was, and which was by design. The speech was not a confession of impotence, but a mask of potency, for Obama’s real agenda is (I almost grow weary of pointing this out),
Policy failures, as usually understood, mean nothing to the Democrat party because successes or failures are not relevant to the rationale behind those policies. Policies initiated by Democrats are intended first and foremost to cement the place and power of Democrats in the American polity. As I pointed out awhile back, all the post-election talk about what Obama’s second agenda would be (energy? jobs? foreign policy? and so on) was meaningless since there would be one and only one second-term agenda for this president:
There is nothing that will sidetrack him and the rest of the party from this goal. Increasing unemployment won’t, nor North Korean nuclear tests, nor a weakening dollar, nor anything else.
… to eliminate political and economic competition to himself first and the Democrat party second. There is no other Obama agenda. Not jobs, not economic growth, not anything. Emplacing permanent one-party rule in this country is the sole goal for term 2. (Emphasis mine)
That is what he is really doing, very energetically, while we grow tired of paying attention to him.
Meanwhile the plebeians are busy looking at Wieners sexting cow (Updated w/Brain Bleach from the Feral Irishman). Somebody throw some real leathers on her *** *** and send her up to Sturgis…
