The Democrats bet on Obama, and Obama bet the Democrats
We dont know yet whether he will lose this election for the Democrats, but the Democrats have already lost much in their bet on Barack Obama, and will be paying for it for several years. So far, he has lost them their best chance in a generation to build a center-left coalition, lost them their chance to make government popular, and cost them also their most cherished illusions, which may be the worst blow of all. It is all very far from the 40-year liberal reign forecast by his more fervent admirers barely four years ago, and in this lies an unhappy tale.
He started his term by misreading his mandate -- his first and his most crucial flaw. Hope, change, and styrofoam columns notwithstanding, Obama was actually a few points behind the McCain-Palin ticket on September 15, 2008, when the housing market collapsed, the stock market collapsed, and the fiscal system hung on the brink of implosion, tipping the presidency, with no effort on his part, into his lap. It was the move of independents and soft McCain voters to his camp that gave him his landslide, and also his danger and chance. His chance was to craft policies that would bind the independents to his base in a larger center-left coalition; his danger was that their worldview was different from his -- independents were unlikely to go for much government spending -- and that he and they might quickly be driven apart.

The bitterness and backbiting recriminations coming at Barry from the Left will be brutal, no doubt.
The whack left radicals now running the democratic party want compromise and discussion with no one. They are bat-shit crazy!
May the heros of Benghazi be proud of how we vote today.
They gave their lives for us, now we need to give our votes for them.
Vote as if the lives of our Military Men and Women depended on it.
I like the bear at the end.
I also like that he will be “buried” today, relegated to the dustbin of history as a little man of no recognizable value.
If the Democrat losses are deep enough (if in fact he/they lose) I expect the Dems to treat him much like the old Communist Party in the Soviet Union used to treat their dead, departed or other wise deposed leaders...
PRAY FOR AMERICA!
May the mediaWHORES have the same fate...I hope they are utterly destroyed!!
Obama was and is an A-hole. but he didn’t do this alone.
Nancy Pelosi helped him shove Obamacare up our azz, Harry Reid has been drinking his urine since day one, Steny Hoyer is connected to him by the hip, and the whole part has been solid partisan voting as though it was the law to do what Obama said.
Republicans are not innocent either, especially Boehner and McConnell who have remained silent while Obama has poisoned the well, McCain and Graham have sided with Obama too many times, and not one Republican has asked how Obama came to have a Social Security card that doesn’t belong to him How he paid for three colleges ad took a vacation in Pakistan while he was in college.
They bit off more than they could chew. If they had gone with Hillary/obama in 2008, we would be facing another 4 years of those two, followed by 2 terms with obama.
The media in this country is just as responsible for this disaster as the socialist democrats are! The bastards should all be in Gitmo for treason!
I agree, The whack left pushed it way to far. I also think Hillary would have been a lot more difficult to deal with in the election.
Hillary is a Fabian socialist. 0bama is a Marxist.
The Fabian socialist is more dangerous, because they implement communism piecemeal and in stealth.
0bama blew the covers off, trying to go full bore commie on a nation, and we “awakened” to the fact that we were being subjugated.
The Dhims have lost the black vote, unless they run a black man every election hereafter.
He can go build houses just like jimmah!

Hitler’s 1000-year Reich was more successful.
Obama was doomed from the beginning. Blacks and gays were thinking that he would deliver lots of things to them. Their demands alienated the center.
SPOT ON!! This is what I’ve been saying this year. Had the democrats put an even half way reasonable candidate in ‘08 he/she would be CRUISING TO AN EASY VICTORY!
But no. They had to go with the most radical, America changing (Destroying) corrupt piece of shit they could find.
Suck on that Pelosi and Reid.
