You Dropped A Bomb...

What the hell does The Gap Band have to do with politics? Well nothing really. Just delivering some sad news, the founder of the group Robert Wilson died two days ago at age 53. Sometimes I do miss that golden age of funk music, Dazz Band,Rick James,Parliament, etc....but I digress.

The title of the song could be a metaphor as to what President Obama and his agenda has done to Democratic Congressional candidates. Most of them can't run away from him fast enough. BTW after you watch the video, keep the 'Don't Ask Don't Tell' jokes to a minimum...

Simply put in Politico this morning:
"Key White House allies are dramatically shifting their attempts to defend health care legislation, abandoning claims that it will reduce costs and deficit, and instead stressing a promise to 'improve it.' . . . The confidential presentation, available in full here and provided to POLITICO by a source on the call, suggests that Democrats are acknowledging the failure of their predictions that the health care legislation would grow more popular after its passage, as its benefits became clear and rhetoric cooled. . . . The presentation also concedes that the fiscal and economic arguments that were the White House's first and most aggressive sales pitch have essentially failed."
That last sentence is a doozy. The arguments failed because they were never true in the first place, and most of us realized that. What made us so prescient? It's called math.

They just cannot run on any legislative accomplishments because basically almost everything they passed the American public hates. So continue to look for Harry Reid style campaigning from their candidates, that would be to malign your opponent on a personal basis and try to identify them as some fringe wackjob. As I noted the other day, it looks like the liberals are the fringe so good luck to them.

Outside of that Happy Friday to everyone and enjoy your weekend! I couldn't resist, one more for the road:
