If you want to see one solid reason why I think the Dems stand a good chance of losing this election, take a look at this video and see what you think.
Here we have a deliberate political hit job on a longtime member of Congress David Obey (D-WI), who voted against the war and is actively working on a bill that will in effect "de-authorize" the war. (Which I am not in support of at this time, but at least I have to give credit to its authors for creativity.)
I am sure the far-left hit job artists think this was cute and clever. But here they demonstrate one more time, they do not understand how the system works, as is evidenced by the unknown man in the video. This guy doesn't even understand that it's the Senate that filibusters, not the House. Rep. Obey tries to calmly explain what they are trying to do and why, yet both of these hacks are persistent in badgering the Congressman to the point of utter frustration.
I am also very skeptical as to whether the woman is even the mother of a Marine. Anyone can say they are anything, and until what they say can be verified, it's pretty much as they say. With the woman starting the conversation off, the man later joining in, and the camera person that just happens to be there as the whole thing takes place, how can anyone deny this is a hit?
It goes to show that the hard left is not interested in results, unless they are the exact results they want. There is no room for compromise with this group. They aren't interested. And, it's why I do believe they stand a good chance of dividing the Democratic Party.
For more on this, check out the write-up this was given in The Hill.
Here is another video that demonstrates the absurdity of the hard left. I don't know who the hell the questioner is, but the public schools must have failed him. He doesn't know a damned thing about civics. Rep. Obey is on their side, but they are so indoctrinated by the political cults of our day, they are blind to what he tries to tell them. They do not listen, they are only interested in speaking.
They are the political versions of Moonies, Hare Krishnas, etc. They repeat the same things over and over. They do not think, speak, or act with the least bit of rationality. Check it out.
