Matt Stoller: Obama is Destroying the Democrats

Yep, hot off the pages of Salon, here it is:

No one, not even the president’s defenders, expect his coming jobs speech to mean anything. When the president spoke during a recent market swoon, the market dropped another 100 points. Democrats may soon have to confront an uncomfortable truth, and ask whether Obama is a suitable choice at the top of the ticket in 2012. They may then have to ask themselves if there’s any way they can push him off the top of the ticket.

That these questions have not yet been asked in any serious way shows how weak the Democratic Party is as a political organization. Yet this political weakness is not inevitable, it can be changed through courage and collective action by a few party insiders smart and principled enough to understand the value of a public debate, and by activists who are courageous enough to face the real legacy of the Obama years.

Obama has ruined the Democratic Party.


Emphasis added, and also — ouch! There’s more, and I suggest you read the whole thing, if only because so many of Stoller’s complaints are so rib-cracking funny.

But before you do, let’s set the Wayback Machine for almost exactly two years ago, when I called Obama “the Manchurian President,” and said:

It’s a little early in his administration to draw any broad conclusions, but the evidence is clear: As a younger man, Barack Obama was kidnapped and brainwashed by evil Republican operatives, then sent deep undercover to destroy the Democratic Party and perhaps even the entire liberal worldview.

VodkaPundit readers are always ahead of the curve.

UPDATE: You simply must read the comments to Stoller’s piece. The moonbattery on display is epic.
