Carrying Obama's Bags (like it or not, he's been everyone's burden]
The American Spectator ^ | September 5, 2012 | Aaron Goldstein

.... Ryan Lizza dropped this bombshell from the 2008 campaign in an article in the New Yorker:

>>>Tim Russert told me that, according to his sources, Bill Clinton, in an effort to secure an endorsement for Hillary from Ted Kennedy, said to Kennedy, "A few years ago, this guy would have been carrying our bags."<<<

......It should be noted here that the 42nd President isn't the first person to have carried Obama's bags nor will he be the last. Since Obama won the 2008 Iowa Caucus, the liberal media has been carrying his bags usually with great enthusiasm. Early on this was an easy task because Obama's bags were light owing to his tendency to vote present. Matters of inconvenience such as Reverend Wright, Bill Ayers and Rashid Khalidi were simply cast aside like lost baggage....

However, over the past three and a half years, the liberal media has found Obama's bags heavier to carry. They still haul them but not with the ease they did when hope and change danced off Obama's tongue causing people to faint in his presence......

....It wasn't supposed to be this way. It was supposed to be "a new era of responsibility." Instead, Obama has spent this new era of responsibility blaming his problems and shortcomings on the Bush Administration, Japanese tsunamis and the Arab Spring, thus passing his burdens onto us. In a sense, all of us have been carrying President Obama's bags whether we want to or not.

There is a simple reason for this state of affairs. Barack Obama cannot handle the responsibility that comes with being President of the United States. President Obama cannot carry his own weight. Will the American people choose a President who can carry his own bags this time?
