Sick Day Open Thread Stuff

Joe Scarborough, Chuck Todd both say that Obama is so self-isolated that Democratic Senators call up MSNBC to find out what the White House is planning or thinking.

Scarborough claims Obama's fecklessness on IS is "scaring the hell" out of world leaders.

Joe Manchin: I'm not going to put up with any obstructionist bullshit from my own party.

Mark Halperin: the Democrat Party is in crisis and the GOP's leaders are younger and more energetic.


"The suspicion that Democrats had... that the Barack Obama political machine exists for the service of one thing: Barack Obama... is true."

He's referring to Dan Balz's piece in the Washington Post stating that the Age of Obama has resulted in a "hollowed out" Democrat Party:

When President Obama was elected in 2008, his victory signaled a generational change and the prospect of renewal for the Democratic Party. Instead, the opposite has occurred. Over the past six years, the party has been hollowed out.

As the post-Obama era nears, the Democrats' best-known leaders in Washington are almost entirely from an older generation, from the vice presidency to most of the major leadership offices in the House and Senate. The generation-in-waiting will have to wait longer.

...

The party's national bench is so thin that Democrats count themselves lucky to have [Hillary Clinton] available in 2016. If she were to decide not to run, the Democrats would have trouble identifying a field of candidates as extensive as Republicans are likely to put up in the coming presidential race.

...

[A] political party cannot be constructed around two individuals (Obama and Clinton), as Democrats seem to be today. Winning the presidency and taking back the Senate will be the Democrats' top priorities in the next two years. The bigger challenge of rebuilding the party in the states and nurturing a new generation of leaders should be just as urgent.

Oh, and the IRS admits it hasn't bothered searching for Lois Lerner's missing emails.
