The Rats Begin The Breaststroke


It begain in July with, Peter Orszag, the White House budget director. Now we have an exodus, which is normal (sure it is,) just before the fall elections.

If you ask me, there seems to be a sense of urgency as these bad actors run to cover their collective asses and salvage their careers.

Christina Romer, the chairman of President Obama's Council of Economic Advisors becomes the first high-profile rodent to leave the foundering economic ship that is Obama's "fundamentally transformed" America.

Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, who apparently has a severe case of short man syndrome, leaves to run for the mayor of Chicago (like its not corrupt enough already.)

Senior advisers David Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett, (who both lie so much their tongues have turned black,) are both leaving.

The dumbest press secretary in history Robert Gibbs is leaving.

Delusional Joe Biden the Vice President was stupid enough to promise,“I guarantee you we’re going to have a majority in the House and a majority in the Senate. I absolutely believe that,”. I believe he will be forced to, "Retire and spend more time with his family." instead of running for office again.

Larry Summers will be stepping down as director of President Obama’s National Economic Council and looking for a job elsewhere, (if anyone will hire him.) Looks like Obama is running out of economists. Maybe Paul Krugman will step in, (that would be funny. He could propose something then blast himself the next day!)

It appears that some Democrat insiders are hoping Obama will take advantage of the departures to bring in outsiders, (read, someone who's sane) to challenge the president’s current team.

“They miscalculated where people were out in the country on jobs, on spending, on the deficit, on debt,” said a longtime Democratic strategist who works with the White House on a variety of issues. “They have not been able to get ahead of any of it. And it’s all about the insularity. Otherwise how do you explain how a group who came in with more goodwill in decades squandered it?”
The strategist asked not to be identified in order to speak freely about the president and his staff.


This is not an uncommon view among Democratic political professionals, many of whom share the goals of the White House but have grown frustrated with a staff they see as unapproachable and set in their ways.

Yea, sure, Obama's policies are terrific, the problem is with his staff! So we need to move those deck chairs around.

Whoda thunk?

Obama still hasn't run out of supporters to throw under the bus and hold him up.

As PT Barnum once said, "There's a sucker born every minute."

Mid-term shake-ups aren't unusual, I guess.

But before a mid-term election?

My question is, what type of fraud and corruption we will we see by the Dems to win the election? Hanging chads anyone? Black Panthers at the polling places? Mrs. O doing some electioneering at the polls? In Illinois, we've already seen them "make a mistake" by not mailing absentee ballots to servicemen overseas, while they have hand carried ballots to incarcerated prisoners. And I wonder how many of those were felons to boot? A lot is at stake for the Dems and I think anything is possible since that party threw decency and principles to the wind long ago.

@ Alligator.

One think for sure, there is nothing new under the sun.

If I didn't know that there were written accounts of political corruption predating the Roman Empire, I would think that the Democrat Party invented political corruption. All of their games are variations on a theme.

When I was a child I lived with my Grandparents. My Grandfather was the Republican Precinct Committeeman/Ward Healer. He lost an election he should have won so he went back and checked the voter rolls to see who had voted. It seems there were several dead voters that year.

Grandpa used to joke that, old Mr Gibbs was such a good Democrat that he was still voting four years after he was buried!

Warren, Illinois and especially Chicago are known for that kind of stuff. That's how the Daly machine stayed in power all those decades. And now we have an administration full of folks from...Chicago.

But you are right, corruption in politics is nothing new. In 1855, thousands of Missourians crossed the line into Kansas Territory to stuff the ballot box and intimidate or beat legitimate residents of Kansas trying to vote. It took about three years to get the government and constitution established by that fraudulent overturned.
