Reportedly Mrs. O’Leary’s cow doesn’t want the election to be about that fire that swept through the city. And the Center for American Progress doesn’t want it to be about their own unpopular health care destroying disaster. But if the election isn’t going to be about the economy or ObamaCare, what does that leave?
The minimum wage. Obviously. Because wiping out another few million jobs will fix everything.
Center for American Progress president Neera Tanden, who has boasted about her role in crafting the legislative language of Obamacare, thinks the issue is a loser for Democrats in 2014.
“You don’t want the election to be about Obamacare,” Tanden told National Journal on Thursday.
Tanden was formerly a senior adviser to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, advising her specifically on health care reform issues and working with Congress to draft legislation.
“I helped write the bill,” Tanden boasted last year.
Considering that the Center for American Progress is the evil brain inside the Frankenstein of this administration, that’s saying a lot. So just ignore the signature legislative achievement that Debbie Wasserman-Schultz was insisting that Dems would run on.
And pivot to something else. The minimum wage. And hope that enough stupid voters buy the same trick one more time.
If the Center for American Progress were advising Charles Manson, it would tell him to pivot away from the murders and the race war to help legalization and hope everyone forgets about the corpses.
But Neera Tanden is noted for her astounding communications skills.
“People say the reason Obama wouldn’t call Clinton is because he doesn’t like him. The truth is, Obama doesn’t call anyone, and he’s not close to almost anyone. It’s stunning that he’s in politics, because he really doesn’t like people.”

So much for running on the economy, ObamaCare or liking people.
