Obama is losing the DC Democrats crowd as well

The Hill has an interesting post on Obama losing support from congressional Democrats. The Hill post backs up the statement I made earlier today that Obama may be a liability in the 2014 election. Here is what The Hill article has to say:

President Obama’s relationship with congressional Democrats has worsened to an unprecedented low, Democratic aides say.

They are letting it be known that House and Senate Democrats are increasingly frustrated, bitter and angry with the White House over ObamaCare’s botched rollout, and that the president’s mea culpa in a news conference last week failed to soothe any ill will.

Sources who attended a meeting of House chiefs of staff on Monday say the room was seething with anger over the immense damage being done to the Democratic Party and talk was of scrapping rollout events for the Affordable Care Act.

“Here we are, we’re supposed to be selling this to people, and it’s all screwed up,” one chief of staff ranted. “This either gets fixed or this could be the demise of the Democratic Party.

Wow, when Obama is losing support from DC Democrats things are looking pretty grim for his administration. One quote from the post illustrates how bad Obama is seen by leaders in his own party:

“Is he even more unpopular than George W. Bush? I think that’s already happened,” said one Democratic chief of staff.

Wow, as a libertarian I’ve compared the two Presidents many times. But this is coming from his ‘supporters’.

I still don’t think this will cause a huge shift of Democrat seats going to Republicans. Rather I believe it will cause incumbent Democrats that have faithfully served supported Obama to lose their office to primary opponents. I actually expect the same thing will happen to Republican incumbents as well. It will definitely be an interesting mid-term election in 2014.
