Cenk Uygur wrote a piece over at HuffPo about how Obama and Co just won’t get out there and fight…that Team Obama thinks they are winning and thus just don’t answer the GOP blow for blow. For those of us who have been watching Obama serially insult and attack us since he became President, this attitude comes as a surprise…what do the liberals want Obama to do? Shoot us?
Uygur’s opinion is applauded and repeated by many liberals in the comments, but other liberals are countering the argument with a plea for patience. Obama, you see, had dropped in his lap more challenges than any other President. Civil War? World War Two? Oh, puhleesse! Give me a break…that’s nothing! Think about what Obama was faced with: a recession! My goodness, man, can anything be more challenging than that? And then look at all that cruel obstructionism from the GOP…for crying out loud, in the face of the beaten down, dispirited GOP all Obama had was absolute command of Congress and the slavish devotion of the MSM. It is a wonder that Obama survived at all!
Interspersed are, naturally, the accusations that we’re all racists and that corporations and billionaires control us (one wonders if any liberal has ever asked what George Soros does for a living?). It is really rather sad; pathetic, really. It is people who simply don’t know…they were fed a fairy tale about what that wicked, mean Chimpy McSmirk BusHitler was up to…and then they were told that Obama was The One who will make it all better. Now that the fairy tale has entered reality and reality doesn’t measure up, they are just floundering around, looking for excuses or getting petulant that The One hasn’t delivered.
These are not people who are set for victory next year…from Obama on down liberals are just out of their depth. We’re going to beat them like a drum – not easily because ignorant as they are, they’ll still have a billion dollars to spend and a nasty streak a mile wide, but we’re going to beat them.
