The Shame-Them Strategy


The Obamas are not about inspiring you to hope and change anymore. They’re about shaming you.

I’m perplexed at the current FLOTUS tour. Last night, for instance, she announced: “I told you that you had to have my husband’s back … I told you that if I were giving him up, you had to have his back because my husband can’t do this alone. He can’t do it alone.”

Insulting your base’s sticktoitiveness may just leave you a base that’s increasingly frustrated with you.
