But, you would think so if you’re a Drudge visitor.
I didn’t click through the “Democrats Now Think Obama is the Antichrist” stories from yesterday or the day before, but, I finally clicked through this morning to the following:
“If people are voting for McCain it could help Republicans all the way down the ticket, even in a year when the Democrats should be sweeping all before us,” said the fundraiser, a former Hillary Clinton supporter.
“There is a growing sense of doom among Democrats I have spoken to . . . People are going crazy, telling the campaign ‘you’ve got to do something’.”
Concern was greatest among first-term representatives who won seats in traditionally Republican districts in the landslide of 2006. “Several of them face a real fight to hold on to those seats,” the fundraiser said.
Tony Podesta, a senior Democratic lobbyist, said members of Congress were “a little nervous” after Mr McCain shook up the race with his choice of Sarah Palin as running mate and intensified attacks on Mr Obama.
“Republicans have been on the offensive for the past two weeks . . . You don’t win elections on the defensive.”
So, a Hillary supporter, first time representatives, and a lobbyist equal the entire Democratic Party. Huh?
The only time Democrats should have been concerned about the state of the party was after Obama won Iowa and was on pace to win New Hampshire by 10%+. As presumably scripted a few days before the vote, Hillary cries in a lame attempt to show her “true side” and ends up winning by 3%. Unlike what I pleaded for in my failed op-ed, the Obama campaign decided to not go on the attack after the loss. Thankfully, he somehow managed to pull of the primary.
Panicked Democrats – if such a thing exists – chill the fck out. The general election will be a landslide as originally seen on BccList.com here…
