Vote the Fantasy, Eat the Excrement

There was never any objective, factual basis for believing that President Obama
would be any other way than what we are seeing. Apparently, a large chunk of Obama's voting base consisted of people who invented some sort of counterfactual, reality-immune fantasy in their head and then voted for that fantasy when ticking "Obama"€™ on their ballots. I'€™m sure there are plenty of valid criticisms to be made of President Obama, but the fact that the real President Obama doesn't correspond to naive, irrational voters' fantasies doesn'€™t strike me as one of them. -- The Disillusioned Center-Left's Case Against Obama: He's Just Not Living Up To All That Stuff We Made Up About Him In Our Heads « Rhymes With Cars & Girls
