Skip to comments."Obamamania" on the Wane
Posted on 12/01/2008 10:55:10 AM PST by AJKauf
The more time I spend in Berkeley, California (where I am on an extended visit), the more I find myself wondering about something.
Is the left-wing phenomenon known as Obamamania on the wane?
It might be too early to tell, but from what Ive been reading and hearing, I see clear signs that it is. A number of leftist commentators have worked themselves into quite a lather over Barack Obamas apparent centrism especially his failure to appoint progressives (code language for far leftists)...

It is to laugh...
Pet Rocks, Mood Rings, Obama...
Going to be a LOT of buyer's remosre in the next four years.
The oceans are STILL not receding. I checked.
If everything is peaceful, they can’t stand it. The get on the fight for no reason at all just to stir things up. They’ll eat their own given half a chance.
They disown their own rather quickly. But if Obama calls off the anti-marijuana brigade in Justice, that would neutralize the far-left’s criticism and give Obama room to move to the center-slightly-right.
The electoral version of “I went to bed a two with a ten, and woke up at ten with a two.”...............
He was telling the voters that McCain will make a Bush III term, but he is working hard to make this a Clinton III term. So much for the change. He brings change to the change itself.
It’s pretty bad when buyer’s remorse sets in before you even get what you wanted.
Obama is lying low with periodic forays into the public arena. Once the throng of 4 million turnout for his coronation on January 20 and the WH PR machine [Axelrod and Co.} goes into overdrive with all Obama, all the time, Obamamania will be in full swing. We are just in a lull before the full storm of Obamamania hits.
I hope you’re right.
I have a house to sell and hope that the “Camelot II” period will let me accomplish that.
Exactly, there's a "silver lining" to all of this as long as you can time it right.
I fear the great experiment called America is soon coming to an end.
I think about 50% of those who voted for him know nothing about governing. They enjoyed the rock concerts. When the rent & mortgage payment checks don’t arrive by mail they are going to be really mad.
There, fixed it.
That Obamamania is on the wane in a city like Berkeley is beyond belief. I thought the Deity-elect was One they’ve all been waiting for.
If what you say is true, then maybe I should move there. I’m tired of looking at all of the BHO bumper stickers and multi-colored posters in my own city.

I totally agree.
Democracy is a sad joke in this country.
Oh good..now they can go back to being the miserable haters that they are.
I share your pessimism. The propaganda coming out of the WH in the next four years will dwarf what the Soviets had during their zenith. Obama will be painted as the greatest leader this country has ever had no matter what he does.
LOL!!!....may he rest in peace..................
They will blame it on Bush just like everything else that might go wrong.
The shuck and jive act gets old quick.
Character is a word you will never come to associate with Obama. Don’t worry, there are plenty of other words.
It has not yet occured to them there will be elections in the future which won't end as favorably.
Good pic, it really is a change I can believe in. [/sarc]
Yep - I don’t think people will wake up until his second term. By then, it will be too late.
Completely lacking in character for sure.
I don’t know what more we could have done to educate people about the man they ultimately decided to elect. Before Hillary was desperately scrambling to retain some power for herself she was telling far more truth about Obama than even McCain got around to. Palin tried, but the media had already painted her in the unflattering light it seems to reserve for all female Pres/Veep candidates. How will people react when eventually they find out that every last word was true?
Watching Obama’s house of cards collapse will be entertaining indeed. But with the media still on his side... who knows how long it will take?
MooseChic, I love your screen name ;-)
Sure, it’s easy to paint whatever you want on an empty canvas.
Reality, on the other hand, is not so pretty. And reality is not what the Left wants.
