The Biggest Problem with This Damn Administration

Obama acknowledged the challenge last week in Boston. “Somebody asked me, how do we reinvigorate the population, the voter, after two very tough years?” he told Democratic donors. “How do we recapture that magic that got so many young people involved for the very first time in 2008?” One answer, the president said, is to persuade hardcore liberals to swallow their anger over political compromises the administration reached with Republicans, even when Democrats controlled both chambers of Congress.

Translation: Democrats, liberals and progressives: abandon your principles. And why not? Obama already abandoned his (if they were ever there) to be a corporate stooge, so he's asking you to do the same thing.

"Buck up" 2012.

Should be interesting to see what happens. Obama knows he hasn't held his base together at all, and the Teatards mistakenly think that this failure translates into a desire to see the country become more conservative. Should be interesting, indeed.

He COULD still win, if the GOP nominates gaffe-prone Michelle Bachmann, or the like, and I might even vote for him under circumstances like that.

But yeah, wars without declaration of war (Libya), and torture in the name of national security (Wikileaks leaker Manning), this part of the base is NOT energized.

As disappointing as Obama has been and as gormless as the Democrats have been forever, they still rank as the lesser of two evils and the only real strategic vote against the party of the mad ... unfortunately ...

And this business with Libya isn't helping him either. I voted for the man and was quite proud of that fact, but his failures are starting to pile up more and more every day. As someone that follows the socio-political landscape as much as possible, I've noticed that the Modern Conservative Movement have gotten their way more than a handful of times over the last two years, yet they still act as if every ounce of freedom and liberty has been drained from their very veins. And yes, 2012 is going to be VERY interesting.
