And what of the Great Disappointment of 2013? In the promiscuous blending of politics and culture that characterizes our age, the launch of the Obama campaign in 2007 marked the beginning of a politico-spiritual movement that promised a new beginning and a transformation of the nation. It was to be the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal [when we] restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth. Faith in the leader knew no bounds. Obamaism spilled out from the college campuses and tony enclaves of Manhattan and San Francisco into the mass public to become first an American and then a worldwide phenomenon. The legion of believers included not only the youth in their T-shirts emblazoned with the silk-screen Obama image, but also many of the nations most experienced political observers. By early 2009, the five wise persons from Oslo had come bearing the gift of the Nobel Peace Prize. No date was fixed for the fulfillment of all the hopes and promisesextensions were continually asked for under the excuse that change would never be easybut enough time had transpired by the end of 2013 for people to sense that the deadline had come and gone. Like October 22, 1844, the appointed time passed with no visible sign of the advent of a new era.
How believers cope with the trauma of disappointment has long been a theme in the field of social psychology. Modern, positivist research on this topic began with the publication in 1956 of Leon Festingers celebrated work When Prophecy Fails, in which Festinger and his colleagues first introduced the theory of cognitive dissonance. This theory explores how people deal with the discomfort of confronting conflicting ideas and opposing sentiments (dissonance).

Cults always end badly.
The classic reaction to cognitive dissonance is simple denial. “I refuse to think and you can’t make me.” That describes a lot of liberals I know.
Brilliantly written and spot on.
In other words we need someone who offers a new vision that leaves Obamaism in the dustbin of history without saying, "I told you so".
Good article, but I don’t like the conclusion. Sounds like he wants Jeb Bush!
Short version: Reagan vs. Carter, 1980.
The peak Taxpayer Rage Day is April 15, Every Year.
For the 53 % who still pay personal Federal Income taxes, I say Put yalls Tax Rage to work and get rid of Obamas TROJAN HORSE John Doormat Boehner on Imperial Democrat Tax Day, April 15, 2014.
As for timing, the new fire-in-the-belly, Speaker of the House can then, with great and detailed TV Fanfare, draw up the necessary Articles of Impeachment on Soetoro-Obama to be officially filed on the Grandest of all Patriotic Days, July 4, 2014.
Then the 2014 Campaign will be going on along with the following:
* Obamas Impeachment trial;
* Pro-Obama Impeachment street protests;
* Pro-Military street protests;
* Pro-Privatization of Entitlements street protests;
* Anti-Coverup of Benghazi Murders street protests;
* Anti-Coverup of Fast and Furious murder street protests;
* Anti-IRS street protests;
* Anti-NSA street protests;
* Anti-Holder’s DOJ street protests;
* Anti-Bypass Congress street protests;
* Anti-Judge Roberts street protests;
* Anti-Obamacare street protests;
* Anti-Trojan Horse RINOs street protests; and
* Anti-Democrat Party street protests.
The strategy is simple:
1.) CREATE AS MANY POINTS OF ATTACK AS POSSIBLE AND
2.) ATTACK WITH NO HESITATION WHENEVER ONE OR MORE POINTS OF ATTACK FINDS A WEAKNESS.
Warning: Success is guaranteed BECAUSE this strategy will be strongly opposed by RINO Rove, RINO Peter King of NY, RINO Romneycare Romney, and of course, Loser Emeritus John Wacko Birds McCain.
LET THE AMERICAN STREET SUMMER OF DISCONTENT BEGIN !
RINOS ARE THE OBAMA TROJAN HORSE TROOPS PARTY
The RINOs are really just Trojan Horse troops sent in by Obama.
They do as they are told to avoid Left Stream Media jeers.
John The Doormat Boehner has his paranoid fears:
Obama and the Left Stream Media Journalists will drive him to tears.
And then there is Capitulation Cantor,
With a soft Virginia Drawl,
Who wears patches on his knees
From his frequent Cave-In crawls.
Dont forget No Resistance Ryan,
Appeasement is his long suit.
No wonder Romneycare Romney
Was such a big Ryan fan.
Obamas Trojan Horse is now filled with House RINOs,
All promising that in 2014 they will ALL be silent.
The Republicans RINO Rove, and Wacko Birds McCain,
Act as the Loyal Rear Guard for the Obama Trojan Horse.
What have we here? So say the skeptical.
Forward, ever FORWARD rolls the Obama Trojan Horse,
Crushing the Constitution, all Checks and Balances, and all who complain,
While the RINOs in Obamas Trojan Horse stay always silent. and do not complain.
Did Obama capture the House RINOs inside his Trojan Horse?
Or did the Loyal RINOs stampede on to get there first?
The What and the Why are just idle chatter,
The RINO Five Years of failure, is what the to voter matters.
With only two plus years left to Impeach Obama,
Can the Trojan Horse House RINOs be trusted,
What the Constitution requires elected Stewards to do?
Or will re-elected House RINOs just continue the destructive Obama trauma?
The only context in which “Great” could be applied to the loser in our White House is right here: Obama has been the great disappointment of 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013, and he has a great start on 2014.
