Skip to comments.The Thrill Is Gone:NYT:Obama’s Relationship With America Is Growing Sour
Posted on 06/19/2010 7:59:26 AM PDT by lbryce
President Obamas relationship with America, like many a young marriage, is growing sour.
Thats my surmise after reviewing recent polling and watching the carping that followed his Oval Office speech (which I thought was just fine, by the way).
It is becoming increasingly apparent that the magic has drained away. Even among his most ardent supporters, there now exists a certain frustration and disillusionment not necessarily in the execution of his duties, but in his inability to seize moments, chart a course and navigate the choppy waters of public opinion.
Whats left for many is a big plume of disappointment and sadness lurking just beneath the surface.
Desperate to escape eight-years of an abusive relationship with a reckless cowboy and scared by a calculating John McCain who chose a feckless running mate, America was charmed by Obamas supernal speeches and inspired by his vision of a happier ever after.
But once the marriage was official, reality set in and Obama tried to lower expectations. Life would not be lit by the soft glow of an eternal sunrise. Change would come slowly; pain would be felt presently; things would get worse before they got better.
In addition, he had to make tough choices (and not always the right ones) to steer us out of our darkest hour and secure a better future. He wasnt always elegant in method or clear in message, and that allowed the more cynical side of America to find a footing and feed its fear.
This has left many on the left duking it out in a death match of finger-pointing, back-biting and navel-gazing. They have gone from applauding to defending, a turn many secretly resent and increasingly reject.

Even the NY Slimes allows the light of truth to illuminate reality.
How could a socialist Muslim have trouble maintaining a relationship with a Judeo/Christian democracy?
“President Obamas relationship with America, like many a young marriage, is growing sour. Charles M. Blow”
“Thats my surmise after reviewing recent polling and watching the carping that followed his Oval Office speech (which I thought was just fine, by the way).”
Hey, hey...doing what Charles does best....
Figures that someone named Blow would pine over a president who sucks.
Of course he thought it was fine. Blow is black. Obama is sorta black. Everything Obama does is fine with the likes of Blow. I about blow lunch every time I come across something by him.
Perhaps they are understanding there is a difference between a bleeding heart liberal and a cold blooded fascist.
Zero must be in trouble if a dumba$$ like this feckless whoosie jackass of the NYT is starting to see the light!
Even the designated gay black op-ed writer at the New York Slimes is speaking out. And to think that only a week ago he was springing to Obama’s defense!
Watch out, Barry, or you’re going to lose all those leg-tingling partners who throng around you!
I’ve noticed more and more Democrats refusing to admit that they even voted for the One. They aren’t changing parties yet but don’t want to be known as a person that supported this president.
And all because of "The Wizard At Odds".
Good grief. How viscerally mindless we are.
Swami Blow has his turban on rather tight, his mind reading skills are slipping.
Barry, meet Bus.
How ironic that the MSM which foisted the undocumented Pres_ _ent Obama
upon the American public, wasting the trust and confidence the American public
once had for the MSM, does not know 'up' from 'down', or 'real' from 'imaginary'.
He’s just mad because Bonnie Prince Barry isn’t getting to this guy socialist utopia fast enough.
The media built him up to an impossible standard that no fallible human could meet. The letdown is overwhelming for the true believers.
Blow and the rest of the demoscum can cry me a river. We took EIGHT years of abuse.
Didnt these shills, and others just meet with him at the white hut to get their spin assignments for the week? This must have been written last week?
“Swami Blow” ROFL
