Brian Schweitzer apparently thinks that pooping on Obama is the way to be the Democratic nominee for President in 2016:
Schweitzer is rubbing his chin, looking up at the ceiling, searching – unsuccessfully – for just the right words. The question was simple enough: Is there a single thing President Obama has done that you consider a positive achievement?
Finally, he spoke.
“My mother, God rest her soul, told me ‘Brian, if you can’t think of something nice to say about something change the subject,’” he said.
But he couldn’t help himself, slamming Obama’s record on civil liberties (the NSA revelations were “un-effing-believable”), his competency (“They just haven’t been very good at running things”), and above all, Obamacare (“It will collapse on its own weight”).
If Brian were running to replace Max Baucus in Montana, which is what he should have done instead of indulging in a long-shot Presidential run, this might be a good way to get elected. In a national campaign–where Democrats overwhelmingly like Obama, Obamacare is going to be at least a modest success, and where Obama’s generally competent 8 years is going to make Bush’s look like the clusterfuck it was–this strategy is death. The only office he’ll win by farting bullshit like this out of his ignorant piehole is President of Fire Dog Lake.
