A White House Insider Talks

This extract is from the middle of Ulsterman's latest interview with a "White House Insider" who reveals a Democratic Party civil war, with growing opposition to the Obama White House.

So who do you place the most blame for the Democratic Party’s troubles today?  -- President Obama and his administration, without a doubt.  The Obama White House has been a political train wreck from day one, and it isn’t getting any better at the moment.  You already know my feelings on that.

Previously you stated that Obama could be re-elected in 2012, and that if he improved himself on the job, that if he took a more active and responsible role as President, that you would support him. Do you still feel that way? -- Is that what I said?  (shakes head)  Well…(pauses)  Ok, I’ll just come out and say what is already underway, and to hell with the possible consequences to me.  I will not support Barack Obama in 2012.  That possibility has left the table for me.  Based on what I know, what I have been told, what I have seen in recent weeks…no, I cannot support the President for a second term.  My concern for the party, for the country…my conscience does not allow me that option any longer.  Obama is not fit to be president.  He simply does not possess the inclinations necessary to lead the country.  And I don’t like saying that.  I helped the man get elected.  I was in the trenches day after day from city to city helping things get done in 2008…I take no pleasure in saying I was a part of that.  And I take no pleasure in saying Obama should not be re-elected in 2012.

That is a very strong statement.  Anything recent that causes you to now say you will not support Obama in 2012? (Long pause and the question is repeated) -- There is much I have been told, some I know, some more that will probably develop in the coming weeks and months.  But you want specifics, right?  I understand that…I’ll give you an example of why President Obama is not right for America.  He sure as hell has not been right for the party.  Not long ago, the president took a meeting.  He’s late, which apparently is becoming more and more common with him.  The meeting was almost cancelled.  In strolls the president, joking with an aide.  He plops down on a sofa, leans over and claps another guy on the back asking how he’s been.  Apologizes for being late, says he was "held up."  He laughs some more.  The meeting begins.  After just ten minutes, during which time the president appears to almost totally withdraw into himself, an aide walks in and whispers something to the president, who then nods and quickly stands up, shakes a few hands and tells another aide to update him later on the rest of the meeting.  As the president is walking out he is laughing at something yet again.  He asked no questions of those at the meeting -- not one.  He left after just ten minutes, coming in laughing and leaving laughing.  His behavior during that brief time he was there was described as "borderline manic."

Ok, you have already stated previously that Obama doesn’t show much interest in the day to day business of being president.  Why is this example so bad, or different? -- Care to know what that particular meeting was about on that day?

Certainly. -- Afghanistan. That meeting was an update on Afghanistan, and the President of the United States, the Commander in Chief, could give a -expletive-.

Were you actually there to witness this? -- No, I was long gone from the White House by then.  It was told to me though by someone who was.  They were there.  First hand.  They were also left to apologize to the ones left in the room after the president left.  Some of these were military.  They were not happy.  No…that is not accurate.  They were pissed.  They didn’t say much at the time, but word got back.  They were in shock at the president’s behavior.  The country had just lost a number of soldiers the week prior, the public opinion on the war was falling…and the president didn’t seem to care.  He arrives late, leaves early, appears to emotionally shut down during the actual discussion, and to then start laughing once again as he is leaving…how does someone reconcile with that kind of behavior?  I can’t.  It turns my stomach.  I didn’t want to believe what I was being told, but I had seen similar kinds of behavior from the president myself, and I can’t dispute the credibility of the source.  They have no reason to lie.

So is that one example the real tipping point for you in no longer being willing to support Obama in 2012?  Or do you have any others you wish to share? -- Oh, I have others, though I cannot share all of them at this point because they involve some still in range of potential White House retribution.  Then again, I suppose I am still in range of such retribution myself.

What do you mean by retribution?  Punishment.  Political punishment, and even personal punishment. -- The powers of a president extend far beyond the Oval Office.  You know that.  I make my living, and it has been a very good living, working within the system of politics.  A president can create considerable…pressure if you will, to limit or even destroy my place in that system.  Working with a president is an extraordinary and terrifying thing.  In regards to my experience with Obama, it became far less extraordinary and far more terrifying.  And it’s getting worse.

This is a long interview.  Read the whole thing here.  It's interesting reading . . .
