I have been working on a post which would reveal to those who still refuse to see that Obama is losing support faster than any Democratic President in recent history. It's been hard to keep up with the growing resource base, especially since that sorry spectacle over the budget cuts that the Oval Office deemed a big win. It kept the government afloat for a few days, but it cost over $70 billion in current and desired future spending. Is this the price for peace, Barry? Where did that Nobel Peace Price-accepting belligerent war promoter go?
Some of Obama's best-known supporters from 2008 are joining the ranks of the disenchanted, including Cornel West and former SC Senator Fritz Hollings. Many well known bloggers and other alternative media personalities are openly considering the prospects of a primary challenger, so one has to question the wisdom of the DNC in not preventing this farce to go forward. Too late now!
But the big names aren't as important to Obama as those who once voted for him and now vow not to do so again. Obama raised a lot of money from the voters through small donations, and my read is that effort won't go as well this time. The billion dollars that the 2012 campaign is expected to cost will have to come from somewhere, and many former donors suggest that Obama get it from Wall Street as a bonus for services rendered on their behalf.
I haven't included the quotes I was editing, as they are now so easy to locate that there isn't much point to that prodigious effort. Anyone can easily find them, provided they decide to look. It might behoove a prospective challenger to do so, for many revealing attitudes about Obama are revealed in their comments. So rather than have your brain go ZING! from all the links I could put into this post, I merely report their availability so that anyone interested will know what to look for.
One of the interested should be Obama, but I doubt he'll consider my informative tip. He's probably too busy planning what to give the Republicans later this week to keep the government running anyway.
There! I said it!
