When HOPE is no longer enough to drag you over the finish line there’s only one thing to do: change the rules.
Hence, after his party’s second midterm “shellacking” that term will no longer be acceptable, given its inherent racist overtones.
So here are the new rules of our non-functioning democracy: you get a voice if you cast a ballot, butt you get a LOUDER voice if you don’t bother to vote.
“To everyone that voted, I want you to know that I heard you,” Obama began. “To two-thirds of voters that chose not to participate in the process yesterday, I hear you, too.”
Odd he would choose to channel an old dead white guy – the only other sitting President who listened to the vast silent majority. Although in Nixon’s case they became far less silent over time.
“I’m the guy who is elected by everybody and not just from a particular state or a particular district,” Obama said when asked to address the “devastating losses” his party endured, “and they want me to push hard to close some of these divisions, break through some of the gridlock, and just get stuff done.” -Hot Air
There is some “stuff” that those who did bother to vote don’t want him to get done; like amnesty. Even Chris Matthews seems to have figured that out. (Even if you have sworn to never,ever watch anyone on MSNBC, this is worth an exception –yes, all the way to the end.)
It’s particularly ironic that Barry would choose to cite the Silent Majority now, when up till this point he’s marched exclusively to a couple of very loud, very vocal minorities.
So here are the new rules: If you lose I win, and if you win I win too! Just like in middle school.
So stop whining and get out of the way of my pen and my phone; I’m not through winning yet.
