Progressives Destroy Opponents One By One

While the MSM frets about Obama’s agenda and the fact that his approval rating might have slipped a few points, they are, as usual, missing the bigger picture. The real story of Obama’s first two months is the total destruction of the opposition. It’s hard to remember an administration that, with the help of the newly emboldened progressive media, has so effectively defanged its major opponents in such a short period of time.

Let’s consider, briefly, what has been achieved.

The head of the RNC is now a laughingstock, hated by his own party.

If a campaign finance scandal doesn’t take him down, his next TV interview will. In the meantime, the RNC has to deal with a chairman that is not only an embarrassment, but who will in all likelihood severely limit their fundraising ability in coming cycles.

The actual head of the party is now a morbidly obese, race-baiting radio personality. After some clever media spin by Emmanuel and co, team Obama has ensured that very time he speaks out from now on, pundits will remark that he is the true leader of the Republicans.

The party’s brightest prospect for 2012 has been transformed from an exciting, inspirational figure into a walking punchline.

Republican insiders who had clearly been eager to back him in 2012 will now have to go back to the drawing board, or settle for either Palin or Romney.

The next Fox News in the making has been disgraced, and their two biggest Obama-critics throughly discredited. Whether or not people continue to watch CNBC, it’s highly doubtful that any criticisms coming from Santelli or Cramer will pack much of a punch at all.

The Congressional opposition currently has an approval rating of 16%, versus 43% for Congressional Dems. It’s enough to make a grown man cry!

That’s not a bad track record, especially considering that many progressives openly questioned whether Obama and his team had the cojones to fight back against the Republicans once in office. I think maybe it’s time we gave these guys some props!

Of course Obama, Axelrod, Emmanuel and Gibbs aren’t responsible for all of these victories. And some of it was just good old fashioned Republicans shooting themselves in the foot (hi, Bobby). But I think it’s safe to say that many of these incidents wouldn’t have had the same impact without direction from the White House, and, perhaps most importantly, without the new network of progressive media that now stretches from MSNBC to PACs to Talking Points Memo and Huffington Post and yes, Daily Kos.

And things are just heating up. Politico reports that Obama is launching a “message war” to fight back against opponents of his budget.

The White House on Sunday began harnessing every part of the Democratic Party’s machinery to defend President Obama’s budget and portray Republicans as reflexively political, according to party strategists.

It is interesting to note that this new spot includes both Steele, who Obama aides had previously been reluctant to acknowledge, as well as Sarah Palin. Watch out Sarah – you might be next!

At the same time, a “broad coalition of left-leaning groups” is joining together into a new coalition, Unity ’09.

Conceived at a New York meeting before the November election, two Democrats familiar with the planning said, Unity ’09 will draw together money and grassroots organizations to pressure lawmakers in their home states to back White House legislation and other progressive causes.

The online-based is a central player in the nascent organization, but other groups involved in planning Unity ’09 span a broad spectrum of interests, from the American Civil Liberties Union to the National Council of La Raza to Planned Parenthood, as well as labor unions and environmental groups.

Republicans…you’ve been warned. We’re coming for you!
