Obama Downsizes Government as Staff Jumps Ship

While the liberal media talking points direct “journalists” to point out that a midterm exodus of advisers is a fairly common event, the number of high level advisers leaving the Obama Administration is nothing short of astonishing.

Normally, people leave the inner circle for a couple of reasons. First, they only signed on to help implement and transition the incoming president’s plans, and only planned to stay a couple of years to accomplish that, or they place the two years of service at the top of their resume’ and manage to parlay the experience into a high paying, cushy job in the private sector.

But the resignations usually come after an election, either with a sense great accomplishment by the administration which boosts their personal marketability, or after a disastrous election surprise, which lowers their market potential the longer they remain part of an unpopular administration.

But there is little precedent for the mass exodus occurring right now, ahead of the midterm elections. And this is a leading indicator of the expected electoral bloodbath the Democrats will take in November. While Democrats hit the talk show and media circuit putting on a big happy face about how things will not be that bad, the departures expose this as nothing more than wishful thinking, or more likely outright deception.

David Axelrod and Rahm Emanuel, two of the leading Administration advisers, both proficient in spin-thugery are headed back to Chicago. Larry Summers, one of the chief architects responsible for the failed economic policies of the Obama Administration has also announced his departure. And there are more. And undoubtedly more to come.

Now, if these close advisers were being tossed by Obama for their failure to get the economy moving again this would be encouraging news. But these rats are simply jumping ship to be replaced by same minded but lesser rats by an out of touch President hung up on his delusion that stealing from the rich (and punishing them) and giving to the green will solve all the world’;s problems.

Narcissism runs deep in shallow waters.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
