If Democrats are wondering how they got here… perhaps President Obama should have negotiated on Obamacare.

Maybe when Jonathan Gruber declared that Obamacare depended upon the “stupidity of American voter,” Democrats like Obama and Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine should have recoiled in shame at the naked cynicism displayed.

Maybe instead of touting “Recovery Summer” and all of the consecutive months of job growth, President Obama and Hillary Clinton should have recognized that talk of  a recovery would sound like out-of-touch happy-talk to the struggling corners of America.

Maybe she should have listened when Bill Clinton reacted to the State of the Union address, “Why is it such a wacky election? Because millions and millions and millions and millions of people look at that pretty picture of America he painted and they cannot find themselves in it to save their lives.”

If Democrats are stunned by the anger at Washington, maybe it would have been mitigated if President Obama had fired some high-level, recognizable figure over Fast and Furious. Or the IRS scandal. Or the $2 billion spent building Or the Veterans Administration letting veterans die waiting for care. Or the Office of Personnel Management hacking. Or the dishonest explanations about Bowe Berghdahl deal.
