Barack Obama seems not to know that his own intangibles got him elected President of the United States. It wasn’t the love from black voters or former community organizers. It wasn’t the Democratic National Committee and Howard Dean.
Obama won over the centrist, middle of the road, swing voters with bipartisanship, hope, a tone, a promise….really lots of promises.
The Intangibles won Obama the White House.
Then he threw them away.
Someday this will make for a great book and movie: “Intangibles Lost.”
A kind of “Lost Paradise.”
The president’s angry, partisan rant in front of an all Democrat crowd at a Spa in Virginia on Thursday showed everyone who he really is: a man that doesn’t care about The Intangibles any more.
He doesn’t need them any more.
Now he’ll just buy votes with give aways like all the pork in the stimulus.
People will love him because he gives them hand outs. Ask just about any Governor or Mayor: to them the stimulus looks great. Free money.
But the stimulus isn’t free money any more than Intangibles and bipartisanship are worthless and unnecessary in politics.
They are the coin of the realm.
