Ditching Obama Would Be An Admission Of Failure

Two Democrat pollsters, Patrick H. Caddell and Douglas E. Schoen, are saying that Obama should not run for reelection and should instead allow Hillary Clinton to run. These pollsters believe that doing this is the best chance Democrats have for keeping control of the White House.

I believe that such a move would certainly energize Democrats who have become disillusioned over Obama and his failures and will certainly increase Democrat voter turnout in the next election but there is a problem. If this situation were to occur it would be a huge admission that the Democrats made a mistake in 2008.

The next logical question would be how can we trust them not to make a mistake again? Clinton and Obama have basically the same political views and both desire the same Socialist policies for the country. They both have no problem with government programs that keep people in poverty and enslaved to government because they are both part of the wealthy elite.

Clinton is a bit more likable than Obama and has more experience (though her biggest qualification for office was that she is married to a former president) than Obama but there is no guarantee she will run the country any differently. She tried to give us Obamacare during her husband’s time in office (it was called Hillarycare back then) so it is highly unlikely she would do anything to dismantle it. In fact, she would probably work hard to make it more controlling over our lives.

Even if voters were unable to see the similarities between these two people the Republican nominee would most certainly point them out. Additionally, the Democrats would get hammered for admitting that it was a mistake to elect Obama. How could they go to America and say “elect Hillary because we know she is the best” when they did not elect her last time. Obama was their best back then so how can they change?

Don’t get me wrong, they are politicians looking to keep power so they will say whatever they need to. The problem is not that they say it; the problem is that there are too many people who believe it.

That might be changing as more people are reading, listening, and getting involved in politics.

I know it would be tempting for Hillary to step up to save the day especially after she was screwed out of the nomination by fraud from the Obama campaign during the Democratic primaries in 2008. The problem for her is she would have a much harder time now because she would be following the person she eventually supported. Hillary has been on board for all of Obama’s missteps and has supported everything he has done.

It will be hard for her to distance herself or to show she is any different. It will also be hard for her to shake the problems that would be caused by Democrats openly admitting the mistake of Obama.

Caddell and Schoen might think it would benefit Democrats if Obama opted out and Hillary ran but that is just a pipedream.

The reality of the situation would make it more of a nightmare for Democrats…

Cave canem!

    Both of those pollsters are out of their minds- There are very few Democrats that I would trust anymore, ever since Johnson had Kennedy killed- now, that was just naked ambition, true, and dem on dem violence, but if you think about it, that was Johnson’s forte- backstabbing. Do I have proof? No.
    But all you really have to ask yourself is one question- who benefits from this act?

    Anyone who says Obama is going to step down is kidding themselves. This is the same as those who say the Democrats are going to challenge him in the primary or said that Biden was going to fall ill before the election last time because Obama regretted not choosing Hillary.

    What people seem to not realize is that just because they themselves can’t stand Obama that isn’t the rest of us. In fact Democrats favor Obama 79% today compared to 84% when he took office. We still like the guy almost as much as ever.

    Obama has lost a good chunk of independent support. How well he does with that segment can’t be speculated on much until we see who the GOP pick to face him. The tide is already turning against Republicans in Congress and the party isn’t that popular.

      You do realize that it was two Democrat pollsters who came up with this and not me. They concluded that many Democrats are not happy with Obama and would prefer Hillary.

      I merely point out that such a move would be an admission of failure.

      • Adam says:

        No, I agree with you. I’m just saying lump these dreamers in with the other folks that basically say things Republicans want to believe all Democrats feel: That we regret Obama, regret Biden, wish we had Hillary, want Obama to resign, etc.

        Obama’s numbers have dropped in every category you find but come November he won’t be worrying about Democratic votes.

  3. Adam says:

    Actually my data was wrong. When Obama took office his approval was 88% with Democrats and is not 79%. The high point was about 93% early on and has a low of 72%. The point still stands though: Democrats are not what Obama is worried about by a long shot.
