Delusional: Obama Blames Democrat Candidates For Losing the Senate, Claiming They Would Have Fared Better Had They Snuggled Closer to Him

Mm-hm.

White House officials are preemptively spinning a midterm defeat, and they're using their own fantasies to do it. They're starting to blame candidates for not supporting President Obama enough. As a top White House official told The Washington Post's Karen Tumulty, "He doesn't think they have any reason to run away from him. He thinks there is a strong message there."

This is pure delusion: Obama is the main reason Republicans are well-positioned to win control of the upper chamber next Tuesday. And Democrats' biggest strategic mistake in this election is that most candidates didn't run away far and fast enough...


Democrats should have recognized that the president was falling out of favor with the public and inoculated themselves a long time ago. Instead, many bought the White House's spin, and are at risk of going down with a sinking ship.

How does Obama believe such nonsense?

Democrat Kristen Powers says that Obama surrounds himself with "Kool-Aid drinkers." He surrounds himself with people of lower status -- the classic Yes Men hangers-on -- who will echo his narcissisms back to him, rather than challenging him.

Even CNN is wising up, noting seven Democrats wishing Obama would just go away.
