Maureen Dowd to Obama: Be more like Babe Ruth!
You know that President Obama is in trouble when Maureen Dowd, the anti-Bush/Cheney columnist at The NY Times writes this:
“I empathize with you about being thin-skinned. When you hate being criticized, it’s hard to take a giant steaming plate of “you stink” every day, coming from all sides.
But you convey the sense that any difference on substance is lèse-majesté. You simply proclaim what you believe as though you know it to be absolutely true, hoping we recognize the truth of it, and, if we don't, then we've disappointed you again. Even some of the chatterers who used to be in your corner now make derogatory remarks about your manhood."
She goes on and on. At one point, Maureen calls on President Obama to be more like Babe Ruth:
"....we expect the president, especially one who ran as Babe Ruth, to hit home runs."
The fact is that the left is disgusted with President Obama. They think that he is hitting below "The Mendoza line"!
They voted for “change” and got Guantanamo and Bush-3 on anti-terror. It must be hard for leftists like Maureen to admit that their man is carrying out the Bush policies that they hated so much.
Reality is hard….isn't it?
They voted for “si se puede” and got “zero” effort to reform immigration when President Obama had 60 votes in the US Senate and large majorities in the House. They got “nada” after eating up all of the “guacamole speeches” at the “si se puede” rallies.
And now they have to hear that his foreign policy is in disarray! We are talking about the man who was greeted in Berlin by thousands chanting his name in another foolish display of "idolatry"!
I can't say that I'm sympathetic to people like Maureen “I’m mad in love with Obama” Dowd or all of the others who yelled "yes we can” at the rally.
This is what happens when you vote for the charmer who tells you what you want to hear! Incredibly, all they wanted to hear in 2008 was that everything was Bush’s fault. Everything was Bush’s fault! That was the depth of his message.
Even President Clinton warned you that it was a fairy tale that wouldn't play well once your prince met reality!
"Victory will steadily deliver the sobering verdict that our troubles won't be solved by a leader's magic"
Sorry but he is your guy and you are stuck with him!
I just hope that he doesn't try to prove his “manhood” by starting a war! That really worries me.
