Over the past few days, some high-profile Democrats have uttered absolutely delusional nonsense, suggesting they are floating somewhere in outer space:
Vice President Joe Biden just repeated something he first said a few months ago: that he won't "close the door" on a presidential run in 2016. You know who'll "close that door," Joe? The voters. Biden first ran for president in 1988. Nobody wanted him then. And after 4 years of the disaster that is Barack Obama's presidency, nobody's going to want him in 2016. Besides, he's going to have to walk over Hillary and Andrew Cuomo to get that nomination, and both of them aren't known as shrinking violents.
New York Senator Chuck Schumer said that he thinks Democrats can GAIN Senate seats next year. Nobody else---I repeat, nobody elese---believes this. Nobody else is even saying this. Given the number of Democrat Senate seats up next year, the number of Democrat retirements, and in which states the races are taking place, everybody believes that Republicans will pick up several Senate seats, and possibly even gain a filibuster-proof majority. Everybody knows this, except for Delusional Chuck.
President Obama is attempting to run for re-election as a "tax-cutter." At least he's not audacious enough to run as a "deficit reducer." Yet. He's begging audiences for "patience," as if he just got into office and hasn't been there for 3 years, wreaking havoc. And he says that he needs another term "to finish the job." That's exactly what we're afraid of: that he'll "finish the job." Finish off the country, too.
So Mr. Hope and Change is downbeat, his deputy believes he can be president and Chuck the Schmuck is engaged in silly "happy talk." What a Bermuda Triangle of Zeroes.
