If you want to know why everything is going wrong for Obama and the Democrats, from Obamacare to Ukraine, the answer is simple. Liberals got everything they asked for, from stimulus to reset. I know: Crimea River.
But we conservatives only ever get a smidgen of what we want. Even back in the golden age of Reagan, we Reaganites weren't at all sure what we'd got in Ronaldus Magnus. Could he get through a presidential debate without putting a foot in it? Would supply-side economics really end the 1970s stagflation? Was SDI going to end up a Star Wars fantasy? Would the Democrats finally sink him with Iran-contra?
Liberals get what they want, good and hard. Or at least the under people in the over-under Democratic Party get it good and hard, while liberals sail onwards and upwards through successive revolving-door government-university-foundation-bankster sinecures. Only the 1% need apply.
Take Obama. Liberals got exactly what they wanted: America's First Black President. But they also got an Affirmative Action president who didn't have the wisdom or the authority to change the battle plan once he got into power.
It mattered that Obama went full-ahead on the Democrats' agenda for Obamacare, stimulus, green energy after the worst financial crisis in living memory. The economy needed repair, not more of the same.
It mattered that Obama failed to secure Bush's stabilized Iraq and blundered around in Afghanistan. Obama could have bailed on his right war hypocrisy, but didn't.
Now, with Ukraine, it matters that Obama rescinded the promised ABM systems for Eastern Europe. Liberals have been telling us for decades that great power chess is old school. Peace process, that's new school. So now we have bad actors running amok.

What Liberals have always wanted is a United States which would be at no more than a par-level in terms of international influence with, say, Belgium or Sweden.
That and to transfer massive amounts of the defense budget into spending for social benefits.
So yes, you are correct. They are getting their wish.
‘History doesn’t repeat itself, but it does rhyme.’ — Mark Twain
Barack Hussein Obama is starting to rhyme with James Earl Carter.
Democrats fight for what they want. They play to win -- at all costs. To them, politics is bloodsport.
By contrast, the GOP is too willing to settle for a few crumbs and never really plays to win. They are not committed to the battle, and rarely even confront their opponents. Its hard to score points when you're always playing defense.
OK comics... we need a good illustration of Obama and “Crimea River”!
Liberals want a Utopia. They “believed” they were on their way with Obama. They will be disappointed. People with half a brain knows there is no such thing as Utopia.
