Great: Now Even Committed Democrats Concede Obama ‘Had No Accomplishments Prior to Being Elected’ – Thanks for Nothing, Dems!

I’m a little miffed … Finally, it appears that even hard-core Democrats are coming around to the fact that Obama was a horrifically bad choice for president. Why does this anger me? Because their little epiphany comes three years too late! Meanwhile, all of us are suffering the consequences of their 2008 mind cramp. We need a do-over, indeed!

The Daily Beast reports:

In his New York Times Sunday Review essay “What Happened to Obama?” Emory University psychology professor Drew Westen summed up the president’s lack of experience with devastating succinctness.

Those of us who were bewitched by his eloquence on the campaign trail chose to ignore some disquieting aspects of his biography: that he had accomplished very little before he ran for president, having never run a business or a state; that he had a singularly unremarkable career as a law professor, publishing nothing in 12 years at the University of Chicago other than an autobiography; and that, before joining the United States Senate, he occasionally, as a state senator in Illinois, voted ‘present’ on difficult issues,” wrote Westen, author of The Political Brain: The Role of Emotion in Deciding the Fate of the Nation.


“There’s no question in my mind that Obama is a one-term president,” says one passionate Democrat. “Even if he were a great president, this economy is a calamity. And in the end, ‘It’s the economy, stupid.’”

You know what I say to that?

Deal with it, Donkeys. Bewitched by eloquence? Ignoring aspects of his biography? You deserve to be grounded for the foreseeable future.

Conservatives and PUMAs saw through Obama immediately. We screamed at the top of our lungs not to elect this man out of a misplaced sense of national guilt. Whatever gave you even one moment of confidence that Obama knew how to grow or manage a 16-trillion-dollar economy? Obama PLAYED all of you.

Back in the fall of 2008, I had a telling conversation with my cousin. She said Obama immediately reminded her of her ex-husband: always promising the world, but having no intention of delivering on any of his spectacular lies. She calls Obama the ultimate "Sweet Talking Con Man."

Meanwhile, as they swooned over Obama’s promise to lower the oceans, the libs ignored the biography of a woman who accomplished quite a bit before running for VICE PRESIDENT. Sarah Palin had run a business, a city, a state, chaired a significant regulatory body, and negotiated several major BI-PARTISAN REFORMS in less than two years.

And it’s rather ironic that the far Left and the far Right both agree Obama is no leader.

Maybe that’s a campaign promise Obama has unintentionally fulfilled … Blue states and red states ARE uniting …

… IN OPPOSITION to his failed policies.

    Time for Obama to put his actual skills to work organizing and inciting a community of Democrats and Liberals to riot outside the offices of Standard & Poor’s.

    That might take some of the sting from the Democrat’s explanation of "The Downgrade" as they now claim they were outsmarted by "Astro-Turf"…and "Terrorist Astro-Turf" at that.. LOL! ; )

  • Rogue2012andbeyond

    LSM should all be fired and Obama should be man enough to step down and hand over Presidency to Sarah Palin.  All Americans should stop going to movies and concerts of famous people who pushed for Obama.    WOW, what a statement that would be!!!

    PALIN 2012!!!!!

  • nohype1

    Despite the efforts of the media and the cultural elite to prop him up, the reality of how disastrous the Obama presidency is and how completely unqualified he is for the office are gradually sinking in, even to some on the Left. The more he talks, the worse it gets for him. I notice that Sarah Palin has been keeping a very low profile lately. Maybe she is following the advice of Napoleon, to not interfere when an opponent is in the process of destroying himself.

  • MJScanlonOH

    The demoncrats will STILL vote for their leader. No. matter. what. Don’t be fooled…he will not be primaried. All hail the ONE! /sarc

  • VeracityRocks

    Who are the committed Democrats you speak of?

    I read Drew Westen’s excellent essay. It’s quite long, but definitely worth the read.

    • Nicole Olmstead Coulter

      Well, people on the left are openly talking about primarying Obama. And the Daily Beast article quoted several committed Democrats about their disappointment with his presidency.

      • GrmaTX

        I have been half expecting this…a democrat challenging O in the primary. 

        • mistah charley

          if this happens it will almost certainly sink the dems, whether or not obama hangs on to the nomination – it will split them and guarantee a republican win  – the only way around this is if obama announces he won’t run for re-election BEFORE the primary season – he’s too full of himself to do that, so no worries

          • GrmaTX

            Still, I’d rather it be Pres. O Governor Palin goes against in the general election than someone else.

          • ReneePA

            I would not be surprised if he stepped down or some fabricated reason.  He will never be able to debate Sarah. 

            • Lor Mazz

              Are you kidding me it would get so bloody they would have to stop it. Sarah Palin speaks to the american people its not just a bunch of words. SHE GETS IT.

      • Guest

        So what u gonna do if you like the Dems candidate, Nicole?

      • My OP

        It’s one thing to be openly talking about primarying Obama, but I’ll believe it when I see it. Which of them actually has the guts to defy the ‘one?  

        I don’t see a black liberal running against Obama. More than likely, if there is someone it will be a white person. I wonder how they’ll like being called a racist from black folk. LOL. It would be something to behold, to see the race card pulled back on them for a change! (Now that I think about it, they did call Bill and Hillary racist the last time. This after having declared Bill as the "first black President" Do you guys remember that? Ha ha ha!) 

  • jgrimes

    Amen sister too.

  • John Norton

    Right now on c-span theres this congresswoman from Deleware a Democrat speaking for the center for American progress in DC.The unemployment rate amoung young blacks is 40+ % .Here is the typical type thats talking jobs Rep.donna Edwards has no Quams whatsoever filling poor peoples heads full of mush.The Minority in the house are still sticking to their talking points…
      We the people need to rid ourselves of this Scourge.A no vote is as good as a vote for the Bomba…
       Most of us here know the truth now…That this guy sitting in theWH is counterfeit.Where its a sin is knowing the truth and going against it.
       The base of the Dem.Party couldnt care less with the black voter.Like the Pied Piper they would follow Obama over the cliff….and stillvote for this looser…And the dems always talk about throwing grandma off the cliff when they throw there own people under the bus…Obamas Bus…

  • rightConcept

    How much will anyone bet that this lib "psychology professor" votes for Obama again anyway?

  • section9

    The left Progressives and establishment liberals in the Propaganda Ministry despised Palin because she came out of nowhere Alaska and declared that Obama was a big-spending Democrat who had no clothes, who associated with left-wing radical ex-terrorists who hated this country, and who wanted to fundamentally turn this country into a sclerotic social democracy.

    Palin’s answer to this was unapologetic Reaganism, and that frightened a cowering, spineless GOP.

    This is why they hate Palin. She knows this President is a huge con man, a fraud, and a phony. And she wasn’t afraid to say it.

    • mistah charley

      a relative who’s a lib was pro-hillary in the hillary vs obama struggle.  now he’s saying that obama has proved that it SHOULD have been hillary.  like the guy quoted above, he’s pretty sure obama is a one-term president.  he wants romney next (lol)  when i get the sarah palin dvd i’ll see if i can get him to watch it

  • Hyman Roth

    And the "Gee, thanks!" Award goes to….

    • ReaganerThanThou

      Three years too late and as many trillion dollars short.

  • JDCampbell

    The point is he never knew what he was doing and that reality can no longer be excused. In fact the markets are settling back to 2010 levels after the artificial spending spree which has done nothing to repair the housing market which used to be fairly resilient. So the downgrade is a normal reaction to the lack of fiscal discipline. What’s sorta nice about this situation even though your slightly in debt is that it creates a clean slate for the next president. This is where those across the board common sense conservative solutions will make sense in 2012.

    • lanahi

      I believe Obama knows exactly what he is doing and wants to "finish the job" in a second term…that is, destroy this nation.  He himself might have not known how to do it, but his controllers did, and he was very willing.

  • Steven

    The sad thing about this Nicole is that even though they realize this, they will vote for him in droves to reelect him in 2012 just to spite Sarah and we who told them this would happen back in ’08. They will vote for him out of spite, because they view everything from a political point of view and not from the point of view of what’s best for the country.  A shame.

    • PhillyCon

      100% agree.  It all comes down to ideology with the Left.  If you studied their philosphical writings, it all makes sense.  The personal becomes the political.

    • lanahi

      Many will.  But he could not have been elected without the aid of those who thought he seemed competent and better than McCain.  He also couldn’t be elected if so many didn’t stay home instead of voting against him.  Those people will not vote for him again, and there arn’t so many who are going to stay home next time.

  • cherich

    With the  down grade in the credit rating, Obama can not hide. It is on his watch, that it happened. It is front and center, with the stock market plunging.

    Wake up America!

  • HopeLessChange

    Sarah Palin’s coming "announcement" and accompanying ‘enthusiasm’ throughout Tea Party land, will send tremors throughout the Democrat nation. Combined with ZERO’s clueless and mindless navigation of the nation’s economic picture, the pressure and calls will mount for "Hillary" to step and rescue their fortunes for 2012.

    • lanahi

      Hillary would be much harder to beat.

  • AmsterdamExpat

    Well, well … reality will truly have started to sink in when they no longer say he was a "law professor" but sniff about his having been a mere lecturer …

  • cuttingboardblues

    ". .  .  actual responsibilities. . . "

  • David Zimmerman

    As crazy as this seems, the only course of action of the die-hard Obama supporters is to riot and steal tvs. This always works.


    Thanks for the yummy crap sandwich Dems. And let’s not forget to  thank the RINOs too.
