If you listen closely to Barack Obama (or even not that closely), you will hear him engaged in projection all over the place. He constantly is accusing his opponents of what he himself is guilty.
Case in point: he has spent a good deal of time fundraising for his 2012 re-election while telling us that he's "not focused on the campaign." At one of these supposedly non-existent fundraisers this week, most of the coverage centered on a former Google exec who begged Obama to raise his taxes.
But the far more interesting comment came from Obama later during the event. He said, "Some of you here may actually be folks who used to be Republicans but are puzzled by what's happened to that party. I mean, has anyone been watching the debates lately?"
Oh, Bama! You're such a cut-up!
Think about this: Obama accusing the GOP of being extreme. I suppose it takes an extremist to know one, but the only extreme thing in the nation today is Obama's radical redistributionist agenda. He points to the Republicans and accuses them of exactly of what he is and what he is doing.
What happened to "that" party? Indeed. What happened to the Democrat party! Obama's donkey party ain't your father's donkey party. He ain't Bill Clinton, or even Jimmy "My Name Is Earl" Carter. Obama is a whole different kettle of radical fish.
What happened to HIS party? Him. He's what happened to his party.
