A Leftist sees through the hype and understands Obama
Matt Stoller is yet another leftist democrat who has buyer’s remorse over our Dear Leader. Here are the money quotes
…[Obama's] career in the Illinois state Senate was based on working for billionaire developers to destroy poor neighborhoods. Few really gets who he is, at his core, and almost no one is willing to publicly point it out. There are some who went to law school with him, who saw his enormous grasping social climbing tendencies, his eager corporate good old boy persona, his narcissistic calculations.
The truth is that he’s a narcissistic sociopath dressed up as a cool corporate brand. The real Obama parody is an Obama who wears an Air Force One fleece over an Obama t-shirt, who says to a reporter “Now hang on, let me finish, speaking slowly and avoiding your question, which is, by the way excellent.” He’s President, and if you’re upset with him, don’t worry, look at that beautiful photo of Obama smiling and pointing.
Bottom line, America elected an empty suit who doesn’t have the experience or temperament for the job.
He is loosing support in his base, for failing to deliver fast enough on wealth distribution. He is also losing support from the independents who voted for him in 2004.
As more people find out more about our Dear Leader, the less popular he becomes. Hyper-partisan leftists are responding to the results of Reality meeting Obama with desperate fear mongering attacks against anybody who dares to oppose their leader. What else can they do? They certainly can’t defend Obama’s record as President.

Update: One of the trends we’re seeing more of is democrats running for reelection who are distancing themselves from our Dear Leader. Add to the list, Missouri democrat Claire McCaskill. She will not be attending the national democrat party convention this year.
