Unlike 1994, They Saw This Year Coming

“When you are ten points down, you don’t take the A team off the field in the final quarter and replace them with the B team unless you know you are going to get clobbered anyway.”

Last night on CNN, Gloria Borger pointed out that the Democrats tell anyone who will listen that they were prepared for this year. Unlike 1994, the Democrats say they saw this year coming.The spin the Democrats would have us take and run with is that they are prepared as in they have a game plan and are executing it to mitigate losses.Really?Seems to me that the Democrats saw this year coming too and that explains precisely why the rats are fleeing the ship early.Rahm Emanuel is running home to Chicago to run for mayor.Christina Romer is gone.Larry Summers is gone.David Axelrod wants everyone to know he is leaving.When you are ten points down, you don’t take the A team off the field in the final quarter and replace them with the B team unless you know you are going to get clobbered anyway.Likewise, Earl Pomeroy (D-ND) is campaigning with ads praising George Bush. Other Democrats are campaigning against Obamacare and Obama himself. Still more Democrats are saying they are opposed to Nancy Pelosi.Yes, the Democrats see what is coming and have broken ranks a lot faster than in 1994.
