The National Review has the article Obama’s Final Revenge: The Accidental Destruction of Hillary Clinton.
The headline and most of the ideas are right, but coming from The National Review, they just couldn’t keep from putting at least one boneheaded statement in the article (I said at least one).
The economy has continued to stall under his redistributionist, anti-capitalist watch.
A more truthful statement would have been that the economy has continued to stall under his continued redistribution of wealth to the wealthy and blindly pro-capitalist watch. They were right about the economy stalling for the not-so-wealthy. They just want the not-so-wealthy to think it has stalled because Obama was on their side. They don’t want anyone to realize that the problem comes from Obama’s being on the side of the readers of The National Review.
Many times I have harped on the real problem of the Democratic Party and its candidates that this article identifies. You can not win an election by making happy talk about conditions that the voters know are not happy. Ignoring the fact that there are problems, and thus failing to put the blame where it belongs, the Democratic Party has left it up to the Republicans to identify the problem but misdirect the blame from where it belongs.
Of course it is hard for the Democrats to identify the problems in their speeches, because to do so would require them to admit their part in the continuation of the problems.
Bernie Sanders has been exactly right. The Republicans aren’t winning the elections so much as the Democrats are giving them away. The Democratic “leaders” have completely failed to grasp but Bernie has been trying to tell them. It was this failure to listen that drove him to run for the Presidency himself.
