Democrat blasts White House for anonymous sniping


It seems there’s a little trouble in the land of Hopeandchange. That mystical place where everyone gets along and sings songs around the campfire. Democrats embrace Republicans in a post-partisan, post-racial world where everyone loves America because Barack Hussein Obama and his wonderful family are now in the White House. Oh, sorry, back to reality. Read this story about the trouble in liberal paradise. Did you catch the first two words of the title from CNN? “Democrat blasts”

obama-fail1WASHINGTON (CNN) – A well-known Democratic strategist in Virginia is blasting the White House for placing anonymous quotes in the Washington Post in a pre-emptive effort to blame Creigh Deeds for what might be a loss in the state’s upcoming gubernatorial election.

David “Mudcat” Saunders, who gained political fame helping Democrat Mark Warner reach out to rural voters during Warner’s successful 2001 gubernatorial bid, told CNN Friday that trying to blame Deeds is “bulls**t” when Democrats around the country are “just tired of politics.”

“The Democrats right now are a real bruised brand right now where I am,” Saunders said in a phone interview from his home near Roanoke. “There was so much energy put into last year’s race, everybody’s just burned out. You can’t get anybody fired up.”

In a story published Friday, a senior administration official told the Post that the Deeds campaign ignored their advice to embrace the president, which the official claimed would have boosted the Democratic candidate’s lackluster support among the African-Americans and young voters who supported Obama in 2008.
