Stick to Net­flix, Barack, and keep up the fic­tion, Bubba

The Washington Times Weekly - - Commentary - BY CHARLES HURT

Head­ing into midterm elec­tions in which his­tory pre­dicts mas­sive wins for them, the don­key party has a new slo­gan: “Vote Demo­crat. The Party of Doom and Gloom.” First it was ousted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, now in­ex­pli­ca­bly serv­ing as Mi­nor­ity Leader in the Wilder­ness, com­plain­ing about Re­pub­li­can tax cuts.

“Crumbs” she called the thou­sands of dol­lars hard-work­ing Amer­i­can tax­pay­ers were get­ting to keep.

This from a San Francisco mil­lion­aire who has been a pro­fes­sional politi­cian for more than three decades. She, of course, mar­ried rich. No won­der she is so out of touch. Then comes the eco­nomic jug­ger­naut sparked by the tax crumbs.

Low­est un­em­ploy­ment in 20 years. For a party so ded­i­cated to slic­ing and dic­ing the elec­torate by race, it must be es­pe­cially alarm­ing to see un­em­ploy­ment low­est in his­tory for mi­nor­ity groups, such as black and His­panic work­ers.

Race-bait­ing is great, an all, but hav­ing a job is awe­some!

Of this newly hum­ming econ­omy, Mrs. Pelosi smugly dis­missed that “strong un­em­ploy­ment num­bers mean lit­tle.”

Yeah, you stupid, id­iot work­ing tax­pay­ers. If you weren’t such dumb chumps you would have mar­ried a mil­lion­aire and got­ten a cushy job in Con­gress. For 30 years.

Where on earth do Dooms­day Democrats find such ridicu­lous car­i­ca­tures to lead them?

Look­ing back to the good ole days doesn’t seem much more hope­ful.

Pervy ex-Pres­i­dent Bill Clin­ton was in­ter­viewed and re­fused to say whether the epic elec­tion that ousted his wife from pol­i­tics and handed Don­ald Trump the White House was a le­git­i­mate elec­tion.

“I don’t know” was the best he could muster in an in­ter­view ped­dling a book of fic­tion — a genre Mr. Clin­ton has re­lied upon through­out his po­lit­i­cal ca­reer.

Mr. Clin­ton also mod­estly noted that he could not sur­vive in pol­i­tics to­day. He is just too pure and de­cent.

“I couldn’t be elected any­thing now ‘cause I just don’t like em­bar­rass­ing peo­ple,” he said. “My mother would have whipped me for five days in a row when I was a lit­tle boy if I spent all my time bad­mouthing peo­ple like this.”

Well, don’t tell that to any of the women he is ac­cused of mo­lest­ing, rap­ing, si­lenc­ing and de­stroy­ing.

At that his mother would have snick­ered, I guess.

Mean­while, the other bright spot of the Demo­cratic Party — Hil­lary Clin­ton — is also con­sumed with end­less fic­tions about why she lost the 2016 elec­tion.

And then, fi­nally, there is the erst­while ped­dler of Hope and Change. That turned into Grim and Blame dur­ing his eight years in of­fice. Now that he and his en­tire god­less agenda has been re­jected by vot­ers, Barack Obama has be­come a washed up, el­derly rock star who can no longer play or sing.

Watch­ing the man who would gut his un­pop­u­lar — not to men­tion un-Con­sti­tu­tional and un-Amer­i­can — agenda as­sume of­fice, Mr. Obama re­flected: “Some­times I won­der whether I was 10 or 20 years too early.”

Again, the mod­esty. Re­ally, sir, you are killing us with your mod­esty.

Why not just say what you mean? Stupid, racist Amer­i­can tax­pay­ers are too dumb to un­der­stand what a great fu­tur­is­tic ge­nius you ac­tu­ally were.

OK. See how that works out. We’ll catch it on Net­flix. Prom­ise. Con­tact Charles Hurt at churt@wash­ing­ton­ or on Twit­ter @charleshurt.
