Dem to Obama: He can
"take his endorsement and shove it"

I would say that things aren't going exactly swimmingly on the campaign trail for Dear Leader. Campaigning was the one thing he was supposed to be able to actually do well, but things don't really seem to be going all that well for him out on the road. He looks like a tired piece of crap, and this is out on the campaign trail where he's supposedly the most "up" and "energized." Right.

Things didn't go so well for Big Zero in his one stop of the day, Rhode Island, of all places, which should have been a friendly place for him to land. Like Frank Caprio (did I say he was a Democrat?), who said when he heard that Obama had declined to endorse his candidacy for governor that Obama can take his endorsement and "shove it." If Caprio is successful in his election bid, he'll be the first Democrat governor in Rhode Island in 16 years. He's running against Independent candidate, former Republican Senator Lincoln Chafee.

Obama's trip to Rhode Island continued with another great moment. Later the same day, after the "shove it" remark from his fellow Democrat, Obama gave a speech in which he said this about Republicans, again pulling out his greatly overused driving metaphor: "We can't have special interests sitting shotgun. We gotta have middle class families up front. We don't mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in the back."

Is this guy SERIOUS? Did "our president" just say that Republicans have to sit IN THE BACK (of the bus)? This is a man who fundamentally misunderstands the role in which he was elected to serve: as president of all the people. It simply isn't possible that this maroon doesn't realize the image he creates with that kind of language. Rosa Parks, the "mother of the freedom movement," would be so proud, wouldn't she? I wonder when he'll call for separate drinking fountains for Republicans?

Done. This guy is done.

Update. 2 Faces of Obama: The Uniter vs. The "Let's Punish Them" Divider

Update #2. Guess whose approval rating is at 37%, an all-time low?

Update #3. Charles Krauthammer article: "Obama Underappreication Syndrome"--read about Obama's "scientific, indeed neurological, explanation for his current political troubles: The electorate apparently is deranged by its anxieties and fears to the point where it can't think straight"--and therefore votes Republican. Big Zero, you are a desperate tool.

Update #4. Charles Krauthammer has another article that's worth the read (as his stuff always is): "The great campaign of 2010." He points out that Obama urges Hispanics to go to the polls to exact political revenge on their enemies--"This from a president who won't even use 'enemies' to describe an Iranian regime that is helping kill U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan."
