From Jim Geraghty’s Morning Jolt:
Politico: “President Barack Obama plans a combative response if, as White House aides fear, Democrats lose Tuesday’s special Senate election in Massachusetts, close advisers say.”
Well, we didn’t really expect humility, did we?
Great to know, Mr. President, that Iran shot protesters dead in the streets and beat the hell out of young kids, North Korea’s firing off missiles so regularly you can set a clock to them, al-Qaeda tried to blow up a plane on Christmas, al-Qaeda’s Yemeni branch is winning “Franchise of the Year,” China’s hacking Google until every search brings back at least one smiling Mao photo, Kabul’s blowing up, our southern border looks like a war zone, and after a year of outreach, reset buttons, “changing the tone” and 365 days of kumbaya we finally get to see a “combative response” from you . . . to a Republican winning a race.
I look forward to his Oval Office address announcing that the electorate has deeply disappointed him, and that he expects more of us.
Just so. If, against all expectations when Kennedy died, a Republican is elected to the U.S. Senate from Massachusetts, it’s a dead solid lock cinch that Obama will not accept any blame. No, Marcia, er Martha Coakley will be tossed under the ObamaBus.
Hey, Barry, politics ain’t bean ball. Just wait until this November.
