    Poor Evan Thomas will never live down his ludicrous comment that President Obama was “sort of God.” What seemed like slobbering now seems outright dumb, given the president’s performance. And don’t take my word for it.

    Left-wing pundits have discovered he’s sort of like Jimmy Carter. Others now comprehend he’s remote and cold. Still others recognize he is weak and ineffectual (“strangely powerless, and irresolute, as larger forces bring down the country and his presidency”).

    Obama is a third bush term. I have been saying this since early 2008.

    Still not sure why the Tea Party do not consider Obama as some sort of God though.

    The media contributed to that aura and is now waking up. That a a long slumber, even for a liberal. But there are some on the other side of the playing field that would have been Rumsfield roommate. for a long time, too. We can't forget that.

    Maybe because Tea Party types find Chimpy's profligate spending and bankster bailouts abhorrent as well?

    It took lots and lots of would-be republican voters staying home to get the Dick-in-Chief elected.

    What's funny about the Right is one minute they're calling Obama a leftwing extremist the next minute they're pointing out how much like Bush he is.

    They're idiots.

    Tell ya what, the Dems better pull a Dodd like they did in CT with Blumenthal running instead.

    Dodd was doomed too,

    seems to me the Dems can save their party

    or stick with the Oman.

    Not both.
