Operation: Dump Obama For Hillary 2016 is underway.
Earlier this year, amid all the scandals plaguing the Obama Administration, I said that we were a few months away from the moment when the left bails on Obama and starts prepping the battlefield for Hillary Clinton’s ascension to the presidency. There were rumblings. There were opening salvos. But they were measured attacks because ObamaCare was under siege. Obama’s political capital was needed to blunt any momentum for a defunding effort. Now there’s not enough time to to build enough public support for a budget showdown.
Hillary 2016 has begun.
If all goes the way it should, Obama’s approval ratings should be in the 30s before the end of the year. You can expect the media to hit Obama from the left consistently for the remainder of the year, at minimum. There will be an easing off next year as we head into the mid-term elections, but after that it will be all Hillary all the time.
Now the only question is how they’ll shield Hillary Clinton from this mess. My prediction is that at some point she will hint that she retired as Secretary of State because she couldn’t be a part of an administration that was doing all this NSA stuff and lying about it. That’s assuming the media ever bothers to ask her about any of it to begin with. Time will tell.
The media is moving the Overton Window to the left. Hillary will surely tack her way to that position. It’s just a matter of time.
