Deluded Obama and the 'shrinking island"


Yesterday President Obama riffed in front of a Democratic audience, attacking the only enemies he cares about–Republicans. He described Republicans as “extreme,” and said, among other things, “Washington Republicans are alone on their own shrinking island.”

One of America’s parties is turning, increasingly, into a Washington, D.C.-based island that has alienated most voters. But that describes the Democrats, not the Republicans, and Barack Obama is a major reason for the Democrats’ downhill slide. But neither self-knowledge nor contact with reality has ever been a strong suit for President Obama.

This is what's so frustrating about the clamor for Republicans to "reach out" to groups that have never given them even close to a majority of their votes.   it's good to be inclusive but it only works if you are not pandering; something that alienates your base even as it fails to get votes from the people that don't like you.
