The brewing civil war between the Democratic Party and Barack Obama

November 26, 2014

 Much has been written in the mainstream media over the last several years about the civil war in the Republican Party and it is not without merit. The Tea Party/conservative/libertarian wing has been at odds with the establishment, ruling class Republicans for quite some time.

  However in the aftermath of the midterm drubbing there seems to be a civil war brewing in the Democratic Party as well.

  Here is a taste:

Criticism of President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law by a top Senate Democrat this week laid bare post-election tensions that could pose challenges for the party in upcoming fights with Republicans over taxes, energy and immigration.

In a high-profile speech on Tuesday dissecting Democrats’ losses in this month’s midterm elections, Charles Schumer, the No. 3 Senate Democrat, listed “a cascade of issues” botched by the White House, starting with Obama’s push for healthcare reforms soon after he took office in 2009.

Later on Tuesday, the White House took the unusual step of publicly pledging to veto a deal on tax breaks that Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid was trying to hammer out with Republicans in the House of Representatives.

“There is clearly a lot of unhappiness and a lot of mistrust that exists between the president and his congressional party,” said Ross Baker, political scientist at Rutgers University.

Obama, whose low approval ratings were seen as a drag on his party in the elections, may see support waver from some Democrats on an energy issue – the proposed Keystone XL pipeline to carry oil from Canada’s oil sands to be processed on the U.S. Gulf Coast. Democrats in states where voters want pipeline will face a dilemma over whether to break ranks with Obama and back Republican legislation aimed at forcing the project through.

Several Democratic senators have been critical of Obama for taking executive action rather than letting Congress take the lead on the issue. If six or seven joined Republicans, they could block Obama’s action, forcing a veto.

  There is much more to read about this in the article I linked to above and I would suggest you all check it out. Of course the Democrats have brought this all on themselves after having blindly supporting Barack Obama over the last six years. They once supported the policies they are now trying to distance themselves from and I find it quite entertaining to say the least.

  My question is this: Will the mainstream media cover this brewing civil war in the Democratic Party with as much vigor and with as much zeal as they reported the civil war within the Republican Party?

  I think we know the answer to that question…move along, nothing to see here.

    The answer is no. But watching this is quite humorous. Pass the popcorn.

      I agree 100%. I am going to enjoy this no matter how much the media tries to pretend it isn’t happening.

    Obama will be gone in two years. The Dems want to live on. This should be fun.

      Exactly, the Dems are in self-protect mode. Will anyone really believe they were not on board with Obama 100% of the time?

    Finally a war I can support! Maybe Schumer and friends might want to read the bills before passing them in the future. Just a thought.
