    "The social experiment that was Barack Obama's election and presidency is over. Way over.

    As one who was born in the heart of Boston and worked the political world of Washington for 20 years, I know quite a few Democrats. Some are family, and many are close friends. Most voted for Obama in 2008. None at this point is inclined to vote for him in 2012.

    Why? Because they view him as an abject failure across the board and have decided to put the welfare of their families and themselves before the empty rhetoric of the Obama campaign before it's too late.

    Because of my time in Washington and past positions there, I also know and am friends with quite a few journalists. I speak with many on a regular basis, and it's safe to say that the majority of them lean left politically.

    That said, in off-the-record conversations with my left-leaning journalistic friends, not one believes Obama is going to win re-election. Not one. While most believe Mitt Romney to be a weak candidate, they are still convinced that he will comfortably defeat Obama on Nov. 6.

    These liberal and jaded journalists privately admit that Obama has been exposed for what he is: an overhyped, self-invented candidate with no real-world experience who has been frozen into inaction by the enormity of the office he holds.

    Obama has no domestic policy to speak of. He has no foreign policy to speak of. He has no jobs program to speak of. His signature health care plan is driving doctors out of the field, crippling small businesses and putting thousands of Americans out of work.

    The Obama of 2012 has nothing positive to run on. Nothing. And guess what? He, more than anyone else in his White House or campaign, knows it......"

    If that makes you feel warm and fuzzy then knock yourself out. Just keep an eye on that large number of "Toss Ups".........

    Odd. I've seen it stated that the irrational, seething hatred of the man can't be attributed to racism because it's rooted in legitimate policy differences. Now he apparently has no policy.

    So what was "experimental" about his candidacy? Oh. Right.

    What was experimental was that for the first time America elected a man without any experience and without any vetting. He was elected on the promise of hope n change, a "transformational figure". It was total and complete hype, and some of us saw it for what it was--a con job.

    We see how that has worked out. The worst economic performance since FDR. The first cut in credit ratings. The highest levels of poverty in generations. The weakest foreign policy since Carter. The most hyper politicised administration since Bill Clinton or Richard Nixon.
    Obama is a total and complete failure. He is the worst president since Robert Mugabe.

    But the little boys of the GOP have been crying this "Wolfe" tale since Jan of 09.

    That totally nails the Obama Experience! Yeah, "hope and change" is NOT an economic philosophy!
