.Left-wing newspapers, Obama’s gospels, are criticizing his pseudo-beatitudes as “lackluster” policies that did not usher in the progressive era the left hoped for.
The Left is now discovering this Jesus lacks the guts to hang on the cross.
“Many liberals look at this White House and see a presidency adrift—unable to respond effectively to the crisis in the gulf, incapable of rallying the country to great tasks like the quest for clean energy, and unwilling to do what it takes to jump-start the economy…many on the left are talking as if he’s [Obama] no better for liberalism than Bill Clinton circa 1996—another compromiser, another triangulator and another disappointment.”
“What happened to the progressive moment that was supposed to follow Obama’s historic election?”
Obama’s progressive policies are burying themselves in a tomb of failure. And this is one stone he can’t roll away.
Americans awoke quickly to Obama’s lies and many on the Left see this president for what he is: a bureacrat.
“Rather than breaking with the failures of the past, Obama largely reinforced Washington’s entrenched establishment.”
Douthat furthered this enlightenment:
“[T]he Obama presidency seems bizarrely disproportionate…,” further stating, “It’s not that he hasn’t done a great deal for liberals during his 18 months in office. It’s that liberalism itself may be running out of time.”
Americans are not stupid, as Obama and his supporters assumed; most Americans reject progressivism.
Frances Martel of Mediaite.com is stunned Obama supporters Matthews and Olberman harangued the president for his latest Oval Office speech and his reactions to the Gulf Coast:
“It was a fairly shocking display of disapproval from two of Obama’s biggest supporters in the media in the past.”
This was not expected from the Messiah’s disciples, abandoning him as he crucifies himself on a cross of incompetency, making Jimmy Carter look like Moses. But Moses kept his promise, he led his people to the Promised Land; Obama has not.
As a result,
According to Berman, the problem is,
“Obama still seems to react to events defensively instead of shaping them…[Obama’s reactions] are almost certain to lose a lot of seats in November…Obama’s own re-election is by no means assured, especially as long as oil continues to flow into the Gulf.”
The problem is Obama is not Jesus, he is not the Messiah; Obama cannot walk on water or an oil-slick. He’s an incompetent, self-centered talker who needs to get off the cross and let someone else use the wood.
