Here’s the Obama success Liberals will NEVER celebrate
For all his mounting failures—record levels of debt, handing Iraq to ISIS, record high numbers on welfare, in poverty, out of the workforce, on and on it goes—there’s one area in which Barack Obama is succeeding massively: handing election victories to Republicans.
When the governor’s mansion in Maryland was handed to a Republican last year people said, “No way! Impossible!” Illinois? “It’ll never flip Republican!” It did. Maryland? Ditto.
Last week, Democrats hoped the citizens of Virginia would hand control of the state senate to Democrat governor Terry McAuliffe. It wasn’t even close. Democrats could have gained control by gaining just one senate seat. Didn’t happen.
Going back to 1900 the state of Kentucky has had 28 governors, 22 of them Democrats. It’s a state that’s been in Democrat hands since as long as anyone alive can remember. Last week, Kentuckians voted in a Tea Party Republican. With the flipping of this seat, Republicans now hold 32 governorships, Democrats just 16! And it’s going to get worse.
Barack Obama is doing damage to the Democrat party which may last decades if not generations. From sea to shining sea, his radical leftist policy agenda is costing lawmakers, mayors, city councils, school boards, and dog-catchers to be at a disadvantage if the letter “D” is next to their name on an election ballot. He’s fortifying red state strongholds, turning purple states red and toppling Democrat seats in solidly blue states. Republicans should almost lament the 22nd Amendment — with another term in office Obama could well deliver the governorships of California and New York.
