We have loved Barack Obama as a presidential candidate and defended him as president — but as a president, he is clearly immediately failing us all — and thus flunking the world. Because of his obscene failures on healthcare, the economy, the war, and terror, he has fully owned his public mocking.
Has Obama already lost any goodwill and energy he earned in the general election?
When Sarah Palin’s “Death Panels” for babies with Down Syndrome out shout the president’s want to make universal healthcare a civil right — something is desperately wrong in his administration and the viral infection of shaming the president in the public square becomes deserved instead of feeling unfairly unearned.
Why where and how has Obama gone so wrong?
Are the Republicans flaying his policies, or are there factions in his own party dooming his dreams?
Has Obama already lost the 2012 re-election effort?
Or is there still enough time to right the ship and sail into our necessary utopia?
