    From a comment on a piece in the Sydney Morning Herald. One of those instances where I say, "I wish I had said that". This is soooo how it looks from the outside (my bold)..

    "One of Bambi Obama's great mistakes was his failure to take control of the national narrative upon winning the election, thereby allowing the lunatics of the Right to narrate instead. Bambi just doesnt seem to be able to get real politik, that the big issue and long term efforts are needful but you need to also do for those on the ground. If he hadnt been so busy being self enamoured and pouring his vision into two autobiographies (by age 45) he may have been able to actually see his own country.

    This simply wasnt his time, he should have let the Clintons deal with the Right in the way they know how. But Bambi's ego got the better of him.

    Obama is nothing but a peacock and because of him, of his vanity and grandiosity, America is being hijacked by the far Right."

    Nothing like some irrelevant dweeb, on the opposite end of the planet, telling Americans how to run their country....Not that drips like you would know anything about that, huh? :rolleyes:

    And I thought the Oregonian was pathetic.

    "The Russians are coming, the Russians are coming"

    "The sky is falling, the sky is falling"

    Any more irrelevant piffle you wish to impart..

    It was a comment by a Yank in an Australian newspaper..

    It may be pathetic in your eyes, but it's how every American lefty and normal person, as well as most outside of your country, see it now..

    The only thing you said that made sense, is that Obama should have let the Clinton team take presidency. But it was the right winged primary voters that sealed the deal for Obama, and he hasn't forgot their generosity.

    Yeah...Right. :rolleyes:

    Like you'd give any credence to some malcontent redneck living in Idaho, as to how NZ's politics should be run.

    One for the "PFFFFFFT" files. :lol:
