But then I saw this post at Nice Deb and found it much more significant.
It’s a long detailed post that looks at the history of the last few weeks and is full of links including this one to John Nolte titled: Story the Media Won’t Tell: Obama Is Losing:
Something is happening in this country — something both the Obama campaign and its media cronies know is happening but won’t acknowledge.
What’s happening is on the ground and not yet quantifiable in polling that doesn’t yet have its sea legs. But it’s out there and it’s real and before the media and President Obama are forced to acknowledge it, they’re spending every bit of their dignity and credibility and integrity to kill it.
Hysteria creeps into campaigns when the campaigns know they are losing. When George H. W. Bush saw the election slipping away in 1992, he took to referring to Bill Clinton and Al Gore as Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. The invective went up as his poll numbers went down.
Nice Deb notes this and expects worse:
That’s the reason we can expect even more desperate, hysterical, hyper partisan mudslinging and dirty tricks from Obama and his cronies from now until election day – they can’t lose.
For a year I’ve been telling everyone who would listen to me that this election is going our way, that every single objective metric and the actions of the left back it up. Actions like this:
The other thing that they’re trying to do is that they have a coms group—and this is breaking news you need to know this—they have a coms group that is trying to shut down the EMS communications structure for the city. That’s really happening. They’re trying to shut down the communications structure for the city for law enforcement and emergency medical personnel.
But these occupod types, the intellectual children to Elizabeth Warren, they’ll do the same to the left right?
And no, they’re not going to do the same thing at the DNC, that’s the thing, is because the radicals feel like the average liberal is confused but they have dehumanized completely the conservative. And so they feel they are entitled to take our rights away when they’re not going to do that at the DNC. That’s the difference.
As the PJ Tatler says
the left media and the entire left establishment who claims they have nothing to do with these anarchists, they will defend them and dirty the name of anybody who exposes them just as they did to me and just as they did to Andrew. They will defend their darlings and attack the character of anyone who holds them accountable and calls them out.
But despite a full year of screaming this out, writing about it here on the blog and saying it on the radio with 50,000 watts to back it up it hasn’t sunk in and the hardest people to convince has not been the left who is doing their best to pretend it isn’t happening but the right who can’t bring themselves to admit they are winning for fear that something anything might happen to blow it.
But now look. You have John Nolte from Breitbart openly saying on one of the most significant sites on the right Obama is losing. You have Erick Erickson from CNN bluntly saying these are signs of panic in his campaign and you have Nice Deb a blogger highly respected throughout the net daring to believe and say what’s been apparent for a while.
One of the only sources of hope for the left has been the right’s unwillingness to say this aloud, if John, Erick and Deb are now willing to do so it means only one thing.
When the dem finally breaks it’s going to be a lot of fun watching the left squirm but remember, it’s OK to be cocky, but it’s not OK to be Lazy we still have to work like hell!
Update: Dan Riehl reminds me of one other point
It’s highly doubtful that the ego-driven “messiah” of 2008 would now want to be portrayed as the failed and struggling POTUS running for re-election who can’t even win 2012 on his own.
Besides, what smart, up and coming Democrat would risk going down to defeat with Obama in 2012, after he won with Biden in 2008, only to have a national embarrassment like Joe Biden say, I told you so? Most likely, none.
Yet, at the same time, across the greater right and among Republicans, it appears as though some have a sort of Stockholm syndrome.
The right would do well to re-assess reality around Biden. Obama isn’t “sticking” with Biden, he’s “stuck” with him, a fact that can only help to further demoralize an already nervous Democrat Party. Nationally, plenty of Democrats aren’t only hiding from Obama, their running away from him.
Guys it’s falling apart for these guys, fast.
