Mourning in America

Team Obama desperately needs a distraction from the laundry list of failures

Our entire country, indeed the world, mourns the victims of the savage attack in Tucson that left six dead, including an esteemed federal judge and beautiful nine-year-old Christina Taylor Green; 14 seriously wounded; and Rep. Gabrielle Giffords fighting for her life after a bullet from the gun of her crazed killer and apparent stalker Jared Loughner entered and then exited her brain.

While millions of words have been written about this unspeakable tragedy, I write here of another mourning, specifically the agony of the left at having irrevocably lost the American public, and with that loss their grandiose ambitions of turning our Democratic Republic into a Communist stronghold.

Simply, the leftists-cum-progressives among us have never recovered from their thundering defeat in the midterm elections of November 2—not just 63 seats in the House and six in the Senate, but also an overwhelming number of Republican governorships and control over more state legislative seats than any time since 1928.

As Daniel Henninger explains in Why the Left Lost It, “The tea partiers’ fiscal concerns were real” but a leftist Democrat president and his Congress “spent 2009 and 2010 passing the biggest economic entitlement since 1965 and driving U.S. spending to 25%. They expected to take losses in November. What they got instead was Armageddon.”

If Democrats can’t regain the Independents they lost in the midterms, Henninger adds, “they could be looking in from the outside for as many years as some of them have left to write about politics. A wilderness is a terrible place to be.”

And now… the rest of the story. …..
