President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden have a real problem on their hands. For some reason, our nation's liberal bloggers and activists are being insufficiently obsequious…
At a fundraiser in Manchester, NH, today, Vice President Biden urged Democrats to "remind our base constituency to stop whining and get out there and look at the alternatives. This President has done an incredible job. He’s kept his promises."
The remarks, made to roughly 200 top Democratic activists and donors, recall comments President Obama made last week to "griping and groaning Democrats…Folks: wake up. This is not some academic exercise. As Joe Biden put it, Don’t compare us to the Almighty, compare us to the alternative."
Oh, that'll work. For sure! 'Cause say what you will about liberal activists with strong convictions, but they are polite and cordial. I'm certain that as soon as they are informed that their attempts at defending their principles are being perceived by the administration as "whining," "griping and groaning," they'll back off immediately. And probably send over a pound cake by way of apology.
Your Typical Liberal: Oh! I do say! Have my attempts to wring accountability from this presidency been coming off as a bit gauche? Heavens to mercy, I do sincerely apologize, most indeededly so!
Did I come off as a bit too fussy the whole wiretapping the Internet thing? And when I was complaining about the administration issuing a death warrant for an American citizen without due process and then having the ensuing lawsuit thrown out of court to protect "state secrets," I did not intend to come off as rude. And that time that I complained about the president, after promising substantive change to the LGBT community, allowing a repeal of DADT to founder on the Senate floor without so much as lifting a finger to help it along, did I seem a bit too persnickety? Oh, is my face red!
Problem solved, Mr. President and Mr. Vice President. Problem solved.
