The past two weeks have seen the wheels coming off the Barack Obama reelection campaign as his fellow Democrats abandon him and praise Mitt Romney for his business experience. After the likes of Newark Mayor Cory Booker, former Obama auto-czar Steve Ratner, former Congressman Harold Ford, Jr. and former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell all took issue with Obama attack ads on Romney and his time at Bain Capital, two more names jumped ship yesterday. The current Governor of Massachusetts, Duval Patrick, said yesterday morning on MSNBC that Bain Capital was a ″good company″ and that he had ″many friends″ there. He also gave Romney kudos for his time as governor of the state. Then we have the Big Dog, Bill Clinton, who not only praised Mitt Romney for his business experience, calling it “sterling”, but added that the combination of that with his time as Massachusetts governor made Romney very ″qualified″ to be president.
So what is Barack Obama to do when his surrogates are breaking ranks? Well, so desperate is his campaign that David Axelrod had to hold a rally in Boston where he was heckled by Romney supporters chanting ″SOLYNDRA! SOLYNDRA!″ The unprecedented move to have your campaign manager go out and make speeches on your behalf appears to indicate that Team Obama is facing major problems within the ranks of Democrats. He is not alone.
Take for example how in Wisconsin, where the large, pro-Democrat public employee union, AFSCME, is down to only some 28,000 due-paying members despite having well over 60,000 members on the books. The law passed by the Wisconsin legislature and Republican Governor Scott Walker, ending the practice of the state automatically deducting union dues from employee paychecks, forcing the unions to collect the money themselves, appears to be showing that many union members are not happy with the way their union spends their money supporting Far-Left Liberal causes and Democrat politicians.
MoveOn.Org, founded by George Soros to help the Clintons during the Monica Lewinski scandal and impeachment hearings, is having cash flow problems, too. They are falling way short of raising a mere $5 from supporters to help fund Democrat campaigns nationwide. With so many congressional and senate seats up for grabs this election cycle, MoveOn.Org may have to cut money intended to go for Obama′s reelection.
With the polls showing Mitt Romney tied or easily defeating Barack Obama this November, it would appear that the early attempts by the Obama campaign to attack Romney on Bain Capital, his wealth and even his record as governor of Massachusetts are all backfiring. Just as Obama′s attempt to falsely claim that the GOP was waging a war against women has failed. Speaking of which, with Planned Parenthood, Obama, and the more radical Democrats now supporting gender-based abortions to increase the number of female infants slaughtered, it would seem that we now know who is really at war with women.
