White House officials are preemptively spinning a midterm defeat, and they’re using their own fantasies to do it. They’re starting to blame candidates for not supporting President Obama enough. As a top White House official told The Washington Post’s Karen Tumulty, “He doesn’t think they have any reason to run away from him. He thinks there is a strong message there.”
Ace, from whom we stole this article, asks the question:
How does Obama believe such nonsense?
Which, out of respect for Ace, we’ll call a rhetorical question.
But we’ll supply the answer all the same:
For the same reason that a certain Austrian corporal thought he could still win the war in 1945.
The two are two pieces cut from the same cloth.
If only it hadn’t been “politically incorrect” to point that out, true as it obviously is and always has been, then our country might not have had to go through all of this.
All we can say, “fundamentally unserious” that we are, is:
WE FUCKING TOLD YOU SO, YOU MILQUETOAST MOTHERFUCKING NITHLINGS.
