Bredesen Blames White House for Election Losses

Posted By on Mon, Nov 8, 2010 at 6:18 AM

Ever since he was spurned for a Cabinet position, Gov. Phil Bredesen has been bashing President Obama. He was at it again in Sunday's Washington Post, blaming Obama for Democratic election losses. Bredesen sounds a little crabby. According to the governor, who fancies himself as a Man of the People, the president can't relate:

"There doesn't seem to be anybody in the White House who's got any idea what it's like to lie awake at night worried about money and worried about things slipping away. They're all intellectually smart. They've got their numbers. But they don't feel any of it, and I think people sense that."

That's laughable, especially coming from the fabulously wealthy and weirdly aloof Bredesen. What's he talking about anyway? Obama has pursued a progressive agenda to make FDR proud. He saved the economy from another Great Depression. If anything, he wasn't bold enough. The stimulus should have been bigger. Health care reform is the Democratic Party's greatest achievement since the Sixties. It might have helped in the election if Democrats had tried defending these accomplishments. Taking their cues from Bredesen and his ilk, they ran from Obama instead.
