If history is a good indicator for tomorrow, the 2012 election will be historic in epic proportions. For decades, the Democrat party was successful to shroud and disconnect itself from Liberalism. In fact, the Democrat party took the path of blending their moderate ideas with Liberalism. However, that changed when Obama came into the picture. Obama is what the Democrat party represents, but was afraid to admit. Voting Americans are now fully aware the meaning of Liberalism. Currently, there is a common association among Obama, the Democrat party, and Liberalism.
As more people see Obama as the true voice of the Democrat party, in 2012, we will see a huge backlash from the American people. We will see Democrats touting themselves as moderate Republicans. We will see Democrats keeping an arms distance from the president. At the end, we will see Obama as the worst president in America's history. Jimmy Carter should be relieved. George W. Bush is laughing out loud.
(The American Spectator) Barack Obama is on a far worse political trajectory than Jimmy Carter was. First, the Democrats lost Sen. Ted Kennedy's seat to a Republican in ultraliberal Massachusetts who campaigned against Kennedy's signature issue of national health insurance. Nothing that dramatic happened while Carter was President.
Then Democrats suffered historic, grievous losses in the 2010 midterm elections, with a New Deal size loss in the House of 63 seats, and a loss of 6 seats in the Senate. In Jimmy Carter's 1978 midterms, Democrats lost only 15 seats in the House and 3 seats in the Senate.
Now in the recent special election in New York City, Democrats have begun to lose seats they haven't lost since before the New Deal.
That is so fitting, because President Obama is not an anomaly in today's Democrat party. Quite to the contrary, he represents the party's heart and soul today, which is well to the Left now even of George McGovern in 1972. Witness the reelection of Far Left San Francisco Democrat Nancy Pelosi as House Democrat leader even after the historic voter repudiation of the Pelosi Democrat House majority in 2010. Witness the choice of Far Left screamer Debbie Wasserman Schultz as leader of the Democratic National Committee. Witness Obama EPA Chief Lisa Jackson, Obama Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, and the numerous similar, utterly clueless, ideologically rigid, far left appointees throughout the Obama Administration.
That is also so well deserved, because of what the Democrats are doing to our nation, even as their power starts to wane. Historically, for the American economy, the deeper the recession the stronger the recovery. Based on that historical record, we should be nearing the end of the second year of a booming recovery by now.
But almost four years after the last recession started, there still has been no real recovery. Unemployment is stuck over 9%, with unemployment among African-Americans, Hispanics, and teenagers at depression level double-digit rates for at least 2 years now. Real wages and incomes are falling, back to levels last seen over 30 years ago. Poverty is soaring to new records as well, with more Americans suffering in poverty than any time since the Census Bureau started keeping records over 50 years ago.
As a result, we are on track now for an historic conservative victory in 2012, far bigger even than in 1980.
