Obama’s scheduling fiasco over his long telegraphed jobs gesture confirms no one fears him. Few listen.
The irony of Obama asking to speak on the same night as Republican candidates lost to almost all commentators. The choice before Americans either more of this excruciatingly incompetent gridlock or some form of Wisconsin or New Jersey writ large. A case could be made that the former merely forestalls the inevitable.
It’s clear that the Democratic Party is irretrievably lost as a functional political entity in our commoditized, meme-soaked demotic now. Its last service is perhaps as deadweight barring the door.
