If He Wins, The O Has a Headache Coming

Astute analysis and prognostication from PJBuchanan.

No Democrat has ever come out of the far left of his party to win the presidency. McGovern, the furthest left, stayed true to his convictions and lost 49 states.

Obama has chosen another course. Though he comes out of the McGovern-Jesse Jackson left, he has shed past positions like support for partial birth abortion as fast as he has shed past associations, from William Ayers to ACORN, from the Rev. Jeremiah Wright to his fellow parishioners at Trinity United.

One question remains: Will a President Obama, with his party in absolute control of both Houses, revert to the politics and policies of the Left that brought him the nomination, or resist his ex-comrades’ demands that he seize the hour and impose the agenda ACORN, Ayers, Jesse, and Wright have long dreamed of?

Whichever way he decides, he will be at war with them, or at war with us. If Barack wins, a backlash is coming.

A delightful thought, indeed; the conundrum will affect Congressional 'rats like Obey, Kohl, and Kagen the same way. They cannot go too far to the Left without repercussions in 2 years.

Kind of like the backlash that has struck the Republican party for it's failures the past 14 years?

Again, wishful thinking daddio.

You're missing an important point, here, Other Side. Unlike the Republicans the last 14 years, in all likelihood, the Democrats are going to have complete control after this election--the Presidency, the House, and most importantly, a filibuster-proof 60-seat majority in the Senate.

The Republicans never managed to get that last one, but there's a good chance the Democrats will--and if they do, then for all intents and purposes, the GOP doesn't exist for the next two years.

One party with all the power--and as such, one party shouldering all the blame.

OS misses the point a lot.

That's so he can make puerile "observations."
