The Jane Hamsher predicted, Rahm Emanuel orchestrated MASSACRE of DEMOCRATS in 2010 is already in FULL SWING, one political analyst flatly asserting that the Obama "Democrats" (IF you consider the Emanuel/Rubins/Summers wrecking crew to be "Democrats") HAVE ALREADY LOST the once invulnerable, "solid blue" Democratic seat long held by Senator Ted Kennedy.
HuffPost blogger Robert Kuttner explains what other bloggers and commentators have said elsewhere, but in more succinct and less emotional (hysterical?) fashion: That Mr. Obama's INSANE ARROGANCE, ALOOFNESS, and SCORN for Americans HAMMERED by this economic crisis (as measured by tepid, infrequent words in their behalf, alone... much less in actual deeds Mr. Obama has accomplished, or even attempted, for struggling American families) is turning him into a "POISON PILL" or (our term) a poisonous toad, for Democrats on the campaign trail in 2010, who will HAVE TO DISAVOW MOST of the President's 2009 and 2010 agenda and financial policy, if they, Democratic Congressional, Senate, and even state and local candidates, want to have a prayer of winning elections:
