"There Will Be Bamboozling"-- Remembering Barry as an Echo Not A Choice

The Outlook wasn't brilliant for the progressive slime that day:
The polls were sinking fast, with but one year left to play.
And when stimulus died again and again, and employment ate its gun,
A sickly silence fell upon the patrons of the Won.

First, a tour of how the progressives are feeling these days:

Nervous Democrats say President Obama must be bolder on economy - The Washington Post

I should have picked Hillary over Obama People cried and hugged. I got teary myself. A black president. The times they are a-changing. Indeed. They keep getting worse.

Obama's Path to Reelection Narrows - Ronald Brownstein - NationalJournal.com

The American Spectator : The Growing Bipartisan Consensus on Obama

"I just think the president is not very bright."

Obama's No Good, Very Bad Week - WSJ.com

Jimmy Carter Is the best-case scenario.

And now for a moment of nostalgia,

A fiery whore with a mouth of lies , a cloud of hope and a hearty "Yes we can!" The Lone Stranger. "Yes we can!" With his faithful hairplugged companion Bideno, the daring and resourceful masked rider of the polls, led the fight for half-assed clown car socialism in early 2009. Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear. The Lone Stranger rides again!

How sweet it was. How bitter it is.

Drew Westen asks "What Happened to Obama’s Passion?" - NYTimes.com Those of us who were bewitched by his eloquence on the campaign trail chose to ignore some disquieting aspects of his biography: that he had accomplished very little before he ran for president, having never run a business or a state; that he had a singularly unremarkable career as a law professor, publishing nothing in 12 years at the University of Chicago other than an autobiography; and that, before joining the United States Senate, he had voted "present" (instead of "yea" or "nay") 130 times, sometimes dodging difficult issues.

Bewitched? Nay, Drew my little schmuck, you was bamboozled, buncoed, beclowned and buggered. And you loved it, yes, you loved it. And now it is the morning after and you must do the slut walk back from the scene of your buggering with only shame and soreness as your companions.

But take heart. 2012 is just around the corner and you now have a new campaign song. Take it away Steisand:

The audacity of affirmative action. Perhaps Obama can get a job working for Harpo when he leaves the White House as a failure in 2013. I was kinda hoping for an historic sex scandal out of this administration before then.

" And now it is the morning after and you must do the slut walk back from the scene of your buggering with only shame and soreness as your companions."

Its all about the 'O'.

Or, more precisely, the 'Office Space' "O" face (tm).

Oh, oh, oh....

Don't fall for the "Dems are turning on Obama" message of the day. If it's true, we don't need to worry about it. But I suspect it's being used to sell us on the idea "no need to worry, he's leaving anyway." No matter what Dems say now, when the election is at hand they will support their man with all the vicious tools they've used before and then some more. Obama voters didn't evaporate and they mostly really want to believe in magic solutions they are willing to pretend the first term was just a fluke.

Never take anything in the media as a sign we are winning until we win the election. We have to overcome our inertia preference for delegation.

I agree, Scott. Take heart but fight on. Inertia is the enemy.
