Infighting in the Democrat Party

It appears that all is not well between Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), and President Barack Obama (Socialist).  First, Harry Reid dumped the $85 billion “bi-partisan” stimulus-II bill that Obama had expressed support for, replacing it with a much smaller $15 billion bill, and has angered the two or three .  Now, the few Republicans who were going to go along with stimulus-II are annoyed at Reid, and will likely not support anything else he proposals.  This will kill Obama’s attempt to label the bill “bi-partisan.”

Then, Politico has a story today about Nancy Pelosi being resentful of Obama (H/T: Hot Air), in that she’s been privately frustrated with his wishy-washiness on the particulars of the legislation, and doesn’t seem to really fight for any principles that Queen Nancy believes.

In politics, they say infighting occurs when a party is in trouble.  By all indications, the Democrat Party is in trouble, and it will be fun to watch as they implode.

This doesn’t surprise me. While I don’t agree with all the assertions made in the book “Game Change,” I do buy the authors’ statements that the Democrat party was divided in 2008 mostly due to the rift between the Obamas and the Clintons. (There were many Democrats who were privately fuming about HRC’s candidacy and privately backing Obama due to the fear of the perceived stranglehold the Clintons have on the Democrat Party, as well as Bill’s dislike of Obama) With Obama’s unpopularity and going against the will of the American people, this 2008 rift will widen as 2012 approaches. I still believe Hillary will challenge Obama in 2012. This time, she won’t hold back and I will have my popcorn ready!
