Now if only the MSM would report on it--but make no mistake, with the help of the MSM or not, O is going down. And the MSM can go down right along with him, as far as I'm concerned. Reading around the internet about what's going on with the Obama administration these days, it's possible to believe he won't even last until 2012.
This morning Drudge has a picture perfect example of the difference three years makes in people's attitudes about our Affirmative Action President.
Here's an Obama rally, Pittsburgh 2008:
And here's the latest Obama rally, Pittsburgh 2011. The difference is so obvious, even oblivious, narcissistic O must be able to see it.
An article came out in the Washington Post the other day titled "Obama, the loner president." It could just as easily been titled "Obama the Loser." If you read the entire article, you get the impression that the young writer (Scott Wilson) was trying in some way to compliment, or at the very least, excuse O for his very odd style, "enduring with little joy" the people smarts that most politicians are so good at. The article begins well enough, but then it veers off onto a course where he seems to be trying to excuse O's strange behavior. The article was mainly confused and very much inside-the-beltway twaddle. However, it's interesting that any such article would appear in the WP.
A better article is one posted today at American Thinker: "The Obama Problem," by Monty Pelerin. "President Obama's political career is in free-fall. He will not be reelected. Many Democrats and media personalities now understand what appeared impossible even mere months ago. . . . To put matters in perspective, it took George Bush almost eight years to hit bottom. And Bush always had little support from the media, a force that continues to protect Obama." The article continues: "President Obama is little more than a run-of-the-mill Hollywood extra hired to play president of the United States. A brilliant marketing campaign coupled with the perfect storm put him in office. . . . the "man with no past." .... Obama's only strength was Axelrod's ability to play on the imagination of voters. That strength no longer exists. . . . Richard Nixon was never liked, but he was at least thought competent. Obama was liked but was never competent." etc.
Then recently there was a very disturbing piece about Obama becoming increasingly isolated, even within his own administration: "Aimless Obama walks alone," in the New York Post. "The reports are not good, disturbing even. I have heard basically the same story four times in the last 10 days, and the people doing the talking are in New York and Washington and are spread across the political spectrum. The gist is this: President Obama has become a lone wolf, a stranger to his own government. He talks mostly, and sommetimes only, to friend and advisor Valerie Jarrett and to David Axelrod, his political strategist." This sort of thing makes a person hope that there are people responsible for watching this guy and GETTING HIM OUT if his pathology gets out of control.
Then there's the current Ulsterman Report from White House Insider: "They Are Cumbling in Amongst Themselves." At first these reports from Ulsterman were simply amusing; however, as the things reported on were found more and more to be true, the credibility of these reports has increased along with their very troubling nature. "Regarding the dynamics of the White House at this time it is same as it ever was which is batsh-t crazy 24/7 there." He paints a portrait of Michelle Obama that is hardly flattering (no surprise): "those inside know she is as big a potential liability as anything associated with the administration. They are using her in controlled environments only. That's the word from on high." --Which goes along with yesterday's report that FLOTUS was leading a "jumping jacks" challenge out on the White House South Lawn. I mean really, I guess she can't get herself or the administration into too much trouble doing that. Just once I would like to see this woman interacting with a white child. Consistently, however, she is shown surrounded only by non-white children. It hardly matters, though, since this woman has made herself such an irrelevancy with her "fashion icon" status, her expensive trips taken at taxpayers' expense, and her refusal to engage in any meaningful way with her position as First Lady. Seriously, who would have thought that the nation's first African American First Lady would be such a nonentity?
Here she is doing her "Eleanor Roosevelt does exercise" imitation. Seriously, what's with that hair? The Black Eleanor Roosevelt is the only thing that comes to mind. Michelle, you are no Eleanor Roosevelt.
Update. The news this morning, Wednesday, is that Rep. Darrell Issa has subpoenaed Att Gen Eric Holder in the "Fast and Furious" investigation. Issa's letter to holder was nuclear. Now this: "Top Justice Department officials, including Attorney General Holder, know more about Operation Fast and Furious than they have publicly acknowledged," Issa's statement read. "The documents this subpoena demands will provide answers to questions that Justice officials have tried to avoid since this investigation began eight months ago. It's time we know the whole truth."
Then there's an article about another failed solar panel company that received government funds: "SunPower: Twice as Bad as Solyndra, Twice as Bad for Obama." This failing company received a $1.2 billion federal loan guarantee. Just how many failures and scandals does it take to remove a Democrat president? I guess we'll find out.
