One letter writer seems to think so.
There should be some way to punish those who selected Barack Obama to be CEO of America. After all, they selected a man who had no resume, who had no experience and who had repeatedly expressed disdain for America, its institutions and its heritage.
Since he has been CEO of America, Obama has looted the Treasury of trillions of dollars, devalued the currency, ravaged the private sector, bankrupted the economy, ruined America's credit rating and positioned the country such that, without massive reversals of his policies, economic and societal collapse is all but inevitable.
Perhaps those responsible for selecting Obama could simply sit out the next election.
There is a lot of that feeling going around. What was a huge Republican wave almost two years ago will soon look like a ripple compared to the tsunami Democrats are facing in 2012. People have not calmed down and even past supporters of the president are throwing in the towel. People used to swoon at the presidents every uttering, who would get a "Tingle up their leg" have lost it. The presidents last speech is being viewed as too little too late and most people have shut the president off. He could come out for free ice cream after church and people would not listen.
What this translates into is people mad at the top of the ticket taking out their vengeance all the way down the ticket. Democrat recruiters will say "We are going to localize your race and that top of ticket stuff wont have coat tails" but it will.
Add in that districts have no choice but to shift in Republican favor with redistricting and I see little hope of anything good going in a Democrat direction. Districts that used to be 48-49% Republican leaning are shifting to 58% Republican leaning and that is with old polling statistics (Not post Obama numbers).
Add in Obama and we could see districts that were 50/50 Republican/Democrat leaning turn into 62/38 Republican/Democrat districts. I don't care how good a candidate is. A person can do a lot and still never make up 25 percentage points.
Sitting an election cycle out could be the smart thing for Democrats to do. People who are mad will have no one to vent to but Republicans. If dramatic positive change doesn't happen right away Democrats could try to bounce back.... If they could come up with positive ideas.
Of course that could take a few years.
