Inside the Cold Heart and Mind of a Political Strategist

Hey, you know what would help Obama reconnect with the voters? Some lunatic murdering 168 people like when Clinton was president!

From Mediaite:

Mark Penn, Democratic strategist and former chief strategist for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, let out the kind of doozy, on last night’s Hardball, that must be seen to be believed. Comparing Obama’s current situation to the aftermath of the 1994 “Republican Revolution,” Penn noted that it took the Oklahoma City tragedy in order for President Clinton to “reconnect” with the American people.

He then stepped off the cliff by saying that President Obama needed a “similar event” to achieve that reconnection following his party’s midterm losses.

I’m only guessing that Matthews might have actually paused to take notice, or even offense, if a Republican strategist had been on his show in 2007 and said “You know what Bush needs in order to bring his numbers back? Another 9/11.” But not here:

Silly me, I thought that what might help Obama “reconnect with the voters” would be to quit throwing trillions of dollars at stimulus failures, union bailouts, “green jobs” shams, health care takeovers and to generally stop governing against the will of the people. The fact that “another Oklahoma City” comes to mind as a way to bump up Obama’s numbers instead of simply suggesting the administration correct their failed political course speaks volumes.

And the Tea Partiers are the “mean spirited” ones?
