Krauthammer On What The Election Means for Democrats



This election may not be Waterloo for The Grand Obama Army, but it certainly was a bloody, indecisive and hard fought Borodino with the gales of winter already blowing across the frozen land while the Cossacks of the Right wait in the cold forests with glowing yellow wolf eyes and long knives posed for execution when the inevitable retreat from Moscow begins through a howling wilderness.

Fox Panel responds to the White House spin of the election...

Fred Barnes: "I know David Axelrod for a long time, he was a great reporter, he covered City Hall for the Chicago Tribune, he knows better, but his job is to spin and something quite different happened and Charles talked about it last night in fact that is, that the Obama star is expiring"

Baier: Charles, you look at the exit polls the people said coming out that President Obama didn't factor into their vote directly, however for Conservative moderate democrats in the House, who look to the election next year, how does this election translate for them?

Krauthammer: "It scares the hell out of them, because if you're a Conservative Democrat and you see the great swing between '08 and '09 you know that this idea that you could ride the coattails of Obama, there was a great realignment last year, is false and they are now extremely exposed...

In the end, I think what happened yesterday demolished the myth about the meaning of the '08 election. It had been read endlessly by the mainstream media and by Democrats as a great realignment, all these constituencies Mara had talked about, The Republicans were gonna become a rump party of the deep south and angry white men, and now we see the youth vote was cut in half this time as compared to '08...'08 was an anomalous election, it was not a trend, it was not a new era, it was a one shot, one off election where all the stars were aligned in the Democratic favor...'08 was an anomaly, '09 is the norm...
