What Obama Hath Wrought:  
He's Killed That 
'Permanent Democratic Majority' 
Stone Cold Dead

Democrats Will Spend More Than A Decade Fighting To Get Back To Where They Were In 2008

DNC Media has no interest whatsoever in reminding everybody about this, and for some strange reason the GOP leadership never seems to bring this up.  But that's OK. That's what I'M here for.  

Let's take a walk down memory lane, folks.  

2008 House Elections. Democrats gained 21 seats, increasing the majority they held to 271 to only 164 held by Republicans.

2008 Senate Elections. 33 seats were contested.  Democrats gained 8 seats, increasing the majority they held to 55 seats to only 41 held by Republicans.  
2008 Governor Election Results.  Of 11 states contested, Democrats made a gain of +1.  After the 2008 elections, 28 states were being governed by Democrats, only 22 were held by Republican governors. 

2008 State Legislature control.  Prior to Obama, Democrats held 23 state legislatures compared to only 14 by Republicans. 

After the elections of 2008 we were treated to endless crowing from the Progressive Left about the new 'Permanent Democratic Majority', as Left wing pundits waxed rhapsodic about the coming death of the Republican party.  All that was necessary now was to hold the last rites and throw it upon the ash heap of history.  

And then Obama went to work in earnest.  Let's check the results since 2008, shall we? 

2014 House election results.  Republicans now hold 247 seats to only 141 currently held by Democrats. 

2014 Senate election results.  After the 2014 elections, Republicans took control of the US Senate with a 54-46 majority.  So the numbers since 2008 have flipped from 55-41 Democrats in control to a 54-46 Republican majority.  

2014 Governor election results.  Republicans now hold a 38-18-1 lead in Governorships compared with 2008, when Democrats held a 28-22 advantage.  

2014 State Legislature control.  After the 2014 elections Republicans now hold control of state legislatures by a majority of 30, with 12 under Democratic control and 8 being split.  If you count Nebraska, that puts Republicans in control of 31.  

To help all my Democratic friends out there fully grasp just what Obama and Harry Reid & Nancy Pelosi have done to their party, here's a handy side by side comparison between where we were after 2008 and where we are now: 

While Progressives have been eagerly egging Obama on into even more outrageous power grabs & acts that undermine our Constitutional form of government with separated powers and checks & balances, they haven't noticed the ground has shifted at the state level.  

I've said for years to change deep blue Washington you've first got to change more than 75% of America into a Red State. Change the country, then force change on DC.  It's the only way. 

All the people mad at the present GOP leadership need to understand one thing: that leadership's time is almost up.  Democrats aren't the only ones who see the voters coming for them.  The squishy GOP leadership in Washington that has consistently failed to keep it's promises or put up much of a fight at all is on notice. Voters aren't bathing America in a sea of Red just so it can be business as usual up there inside the Beltway.  This leadership hasn't delivered and soon it will be replaced. 

In the meantime, as things gear up for the 2016 elections, lets stop for a moment and reflect on just how far the voters have swung that pendulum back the other way since all the Lefty morons crowed about their 'permanent' Democratic majority.

The Point Of Hillary Breaking Her 87 Day Silence For That Interview On CNN Wasn't To Make News

It Was So The Democrat Base Could Hear Her Say What It Wanted To Hear

And Hillary & her interviewer, CNN's Brianna Keilar, gave Hillary's far left base what it wanted in the first few minutes of the interview.  

What did Hillary's base want to hear 87 days after she launched her candidacy for President? 

After disclosures that she'd accepted donations from foreign governments for the Clinton Foundation while serving as Secretary of State, something she promised she wouldn't do? 

After she hid her private emails from Congress & avoided subpoenas for over 3 years until they were discovered just a few months ago? 

That she hadn't handed over all her work related emails from her private homebrew server after saying she had? And destroyed over 30,000 other emails still under subpoena? 

That she and/or her staff had edited the emails she did hand over, a violation of the law? 

What did Hillary's base want to hear her say on the record?  Two things: 

1)  "I've done nothing wrong."


2)  "This is all right wing attacks." 

That's it. That was the entire point of the campaign infomercial that CNN aired last night. Because it gives Hillary's base the denial it wanted and a target to go after.  

Hillary is dusting off the same old Clinton Playbook from the 1990's, where none of her & Bill's multitude of scandals were their own fault, it was all the result of a Vast Right Wing Conspiracy. 

You may think it's nothing short of stunning for Hillary to still be playing this card at this late date, that none of the scandals facing her are self-inflicted, it's all just right-wing noise, but this is exactly what her base wants to hear, so that's why this interview was done.  

The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy didn't FORCE Hillary to accept the millions in donations from foreign governments and corporations while she was serving as US Secretary of State.  She did that herself.  She broke her own promise.  

The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy didn't FORCE Hillary to hide her private email accounts on a homebrew server &  deliberately ignore 3+ years of subpoenas.  This was Hillary Clinton's deliberate decision. 

And then once the emails were found, nobody in the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy FORCED Hillary to pick which emails to hand over, which to hold back and destroy.  This was all Hillary.

And no one in a VRWC forced Hillary to deceptively edit some of the emails she handed over.  She did that herself of her own volition.  

ALL of Hillary's problems are self-inflicted due to her own dishonesty and corruption.  

But this doesn't matter.  Her BASE wants to hear that Hillary is being 'persecuted' by a 'conspiracy' of 'right-wing attackers', and so here we are.  And CNN willingly played along with this agenda.  

Even when Clinton tells Keilar a bold faced lie about having turned over all her work related emails, Keilar doesn't bat an eye or challenge her on it, she just nods her head and moves on.  
Now Hillary's base has what it needs.  They'll spend the next few months claiming Hillary has 'addressed' the 'non-story' of the emails & foreign donations in this CNN interview and it's time for all the rest of you to 

This wasn't about winning any new converts, it was about shoring up her base in the face of doubts and perhaps defections to Bernie Sanders. 

This interview should have been given to Jake Tapper.  But of course, as we all know, Hillary wouldn't have agreed to be interviewed by Tapper since he has a well earned reputation of being tough but fair.  That's not what Hillary wanted out of this 'interview'.  She wanted a campaign infomercial and Keilar & CNN willingly handed it to her.

The Progressive Left Still Clings 
To It's Myth That Ronald Reagan 
Didn't Care About AIDs

Gay activists flip off Reagan's portrait in the White House

30 years on, the Left still clings, like a child throwing a tantrum, to the myth that President Ronald Reagan made the AIDs epidemic of the 1980's worse because he didn't do enough to find a cure.  

You know who REALLY made the AIDs epidemic so deadly for gays in that decade? 

By fighting to keep San Francisco's bathhouses open & deliberately spreading misinformation about AIDs. 

Randy Shilt's describes the actions of gay activists that led to the virtual wiping out of an entire generation of gay men in the book 'And The Band Played On'.  This was the first time treatment & prevention of a fatal disease ran headlong into political correctness. And Political Correctness won.  Gay men were actually ENCOURAGED to continue engaging in risky sexual behavior while people who tried to prevent the spread of the disease were attacked, often viciously with smears. 

But what do you do when it's all over, when you realize your stupid actions encouraged people to continue engaging in the same risky behaviors that left them vulnerable to this disease?  THOUSANDS of gay people who would otherwise be alive today ended up dying because they didn't change their risky behavior because you keep telling them they didn't need to.  

Simple.  You project your responsibility for this onto someone else.  Which is what they've done to Reagan for 30 years now.  

It's all Reagan's fault! That asshole!!!!

Promiscuous gay men engaging in risky unprotected sex didn't need to change their behaviors in the 1980's. No, what was REALLY needed was for Ronald Reagan to come up with a cure for this disease and fast, and because he didn't spend enough on AIDs research or something, this caused a lot of gays to end up dying. 

This is the myth these people cling to still.  And there's more evidence against it than ever.  

Here's the real facts about Reagan and the search for an AIDs cure: 

For the record, Reagan first mentioned AIDS, in response to a question at a press conference, on Sept. 17, 1985. On Feb. 5, 1986, he made a surprise visit to the Department of Health and Human Services where he said, “One of our highest public health priorities is going to be continuing to find a cure for AIDS.” He also announced that he’d tasked Surgeon General C. Everett Koop to prepare a major report on the disease. Contrary to the prevailing wisdom, Reagan dragged Koop into AIDS policy, not the other way around.
As for Waxman’s recollections about AIDS funding, he does an unusual thing for a politician: He’s forgotten the success he and other Democrats had in convincing Reagan to spend more money. The administration increased AIDS funding requests from $8 million in 1982 to $26.5 million in 1983, which Congress bumped to $44 million, a number that doubled every year thereafter during Reagan’s presidency.
Finally, the claim that Reagan spoke about AIDS sufferers with “disdain” is simply a smear. Nothing like that ever happened, except maybe in the fictional “The Reagans” miniseries in which Barbra Streisand’s husband played Reagan as a bigot and rube.
Projection and psychological displacement explain why the people most responsible for the gay holocaust of the 1980's so vociferously attacked and vilified Ronald Reagan.  Like every group they appear to champion, Progressives actually end up harming it, then need to find a scapegoat to project the failure onto.  

When it comes to the AIDs crisis of the 1980's, Reagan is their scapegoat.  They really shouldn't be allowed to get away with this any longer.
