Barack Obama continues sink into the political waves and befuddle those who thought he could walk on water. Obama chose Pastor Rick Warren to perform some inaugural duties, and the left isn’t thrilled in the least: Gay activists furious with Obama:
Barack Obama’s choice of a prominent evangelical minister to perform the invocation at his inauguration is a conciliatory gesture toward social conservatives who opposed him in November, but it is drawing fierce challenges from a gay rights movement that – in the wake of a gay marriage ban in California – is looking for a fight.
How deep is the anger? Here’s just a few comments from very soon to be former Obamaniacs at the Democratic Underground:
What makes this so funny is that "progressive" types actually thought they were going to be issued their own parking spot at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue , invited to spend inauguration night in the Lincoln bedroom, get nightly rubdowns from Dennis Kucinich and be given Vladimir Putin’s personal cell phone number. In other words, they were every bit as gullible as the Democrat leadership knew they would be.
Politically, I disagree with Obama on almost everything, but the man’s no fool, and he knows that he can’t tie his presidential legacy to a bunch of half-baked kookleberry Chomskymuffins.
About a month ago I wrote a column saying that the left would become wildly upset after they ran to the roadside the day after Obama’s inauguration and were shocked to discover that their mailboxes didn’t contain any free money, Xanax gift cards or the secret to eternal life, but I was way wrong — the disenchantment started much earlier than January 21.
Stand back and watch as the jilted lovers light up the stove and boil Obama’s “change” bunny.
