I must admit, I did have my doubts but I must give credit when it is due. You came into office with a flash and bang; gays are now allowed to marry across the country, “Don’t ask, don’t tell” has been repealed, Gitmo is closed, the United States is better viewed by our neighbors, the Patriot Act has been squashed, all the Lobbyist have been chased out of D.C., you prevented unemployment from rising above 8%, you stopped the run-away deficit, we pulled out of Iraq and we have a firm date to pull out of Afghanistan. Your political skills have been extraordinary and your teleprompter skills have mesmerized the world.
However, I must extend my condolences. It seems your base has become disillusioned and apoplectic. They believe their savior has abandoned them by adopting Bush’s tax policies that “only favor the rich.” The Enthusiasm which rocketed you into the White House has waned and they have suddenly become lethargic. There is a rumor that 75% of your contributors have become angry with you, 57% are considering completely abandoning the Democratic Party and 51% are not even going to contribute to your campaign.
Why are these Progressives whining? You passed the “Card Check” and now everyone is required by law to work for a Union and you managed to prevent the stupid Republicans from regaining the house. The Democrats now have an enormous advantage of redistricting, ensuring the majority for the next 10 years.
On the bright side, who else are they going to turn too? “Pilliary” was slapped by our socialist friend from Wikileaks and she doesn’t seem to have the energy to fight for the Presidency. The only way I see you pulling out of this mess, is if you get off the bench, let Pelosi and Reid sit out the rest of the game. Don’t depend on the remaining Democrats to keep leading for you, just so you can to take a break on the back nine.
It’s a long shot, but “Yes, You Can”!
Or you might be forgotten as “The One” and remembered as “The One Hit Wonder.”
