From Day One, millions of us knew that an Obama Presidency would be “pure demagoguery” and NOT an ounce of leadership.
Obama is only capable of “leadership” for some phantom entity of interests that has nothing to do with the nation of whidh he is President—it’s as if he has been here “on loan” from some future abstract “Utopia”, which doesn’t and
never has existed in the ‘real’ world, except in the heads of 2nd rate academics.
So I shed no tears for the Finally Disappointed and Frustrated like Evan Thomas. Obama was a radical ideologue, a personally arrogant and clueless narcissist from the get-go, and all his worst qualities (his ONLY qualities, in fact) were given a red-light by MSM talking heads and spin doctors, because they were in love with being responsible for bringing about the ‘historic occasion’ of his Presidency.
Yes, even Krauthammer, who I thought would know better, and was more experienced, came out with a positive scenario of Obama as Presidential material during the 2008 campaign, but thought he wasn’t quite ready JUST YET to be President, thinking he should wait for the next election cycle.
Obama is not the type to wait, nor was the Democratic Party apparatus that was all to eager to roll him out there and
begin (finally!) the process of ‘re-making America”.
Listen with “the third ear” at what their rhetoric has been for 2 1/2 years now and it’s crystal clear what they’ve been up to: the big, deep hole they say Bush put us into and they inherited, is exactly what THEY have dug relentlessly , and what the next President will inherit.
It’s the classic act of what Freud called projection, but in politics it’s just normal lying and spin, which the Democrats have perfected as a Crude Art, rather than a Fine Art.
Sadly, the next President will have to spend an inordinate amount of energy just undoing what Obama has done, which of
course is exactly what Team Obama said THEY would have to do.
Still hard to believe that people like Evan Thomas, who were all part of the Massive Media Team that helped Obama get elected (think Oprah, Hollywood, and everyone in the print media) still profess this kind of frustration and disappointment.,
If they don’t come out of it with a vow of “never again”, they will have learned nothing. They still have lots of face to save, obviously.
Right on the money, Sir/Madam.
