What do you say to disillusioned people?
“No Drama Obama” was a phoney. The man with hope, an MLK like dreamy quality, and a kinship for Abraham Lincoln quickly offered us catastrophe.
He created catastrophe. Manufactured it. And Thurday night at a Spa, in a room reserved for Democrats only, he blamed it all on Republicans, during an off the telepromter gloat that will haunt him forever.
What do you say to people that gave their trust and hope; who believed the message, just a few weeks ago, was honest?
What do you tell people who thought their vote might help heal America and bring this Great Nation to a better place, when they are already expressing dismay?
Gail Collins wrote in the New York Times about Daschle’s loss and the stimulus.
Honesty, credibility, believebility, faith and hope make small presidents great.
Barack Obama was never small. But he grew to epic, even Messianic proportions fueled by adoring crowds and a fawning media.
Now maybe he has crashed to earth.
Because he sure squandered a lot of “political capital.”
