Here’s What a White House Throwing in the Towel Early Looks Like

Is today Monday…or Wednesday? You’d be forgiven for thinking that the midterm elections have already passed us by if you’ve only been looking at the glum grimace on Democrats’ faces. The overall consensus is that Republicans are about to deliver Obama his biggest wake up call yet, in the form of taking back the United States Senate.

So what’s a White House to do? Spin, of course. But in this case, the administration isn’t following the lead of Delusional Debbie and proclaiming that the polls are all wrong. Rather, they’re already admitting defeat — while simultaneously downplaying the significance of the impending shellacking.

A midterm election is different than a presidential election … the electorate is different this time,” proclaimed White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest. “It would not be wise to draw as broad a conclusion about the outcome of this election as you would from a national presidential election.”

I suppose we should take that to mean President Obama doesn’t plan on changing a single thing about how he does business with Republicans after Tuesday, which should come as a surprise to precisely nobody.

Instead, if Mark Halperin’s reporting is accurate, Barry will probably be doing a bit of hiding and pouting:

He’s off the trail. Not even out for House candidates or gubernatorial candidates,” Halperin explained while going over the president’s schedule for the next two days.

The president’s staying home … Wow. Isn’t that crazy?” asked Joe Scarborough.

It would appear that Obama’s ego has been bruised beyond repair as a result of what has transpired during this election season. If he wants to spend the next few days and months weeping like a teenage boy whose girlfriend just dumped him, best of luck to him. If 2014 has proved one thing, it’s that the world does not wait for Barack Obama. So when he finally decides to mount his Rocky Balboa-style comeback, he shouldn’t be surprised if he discovers that no one cares to work with him.
