Local left thinks Obama will be re-elected, national far left, not so sure he should be

Our local left, once associated with the local newspaper:

I haven’t changed my mind that Obama will be elected to a second term.

National far left:

Every one in this crowd, I am certain, has had disappointments and frustrations with this White House,” Robert Borosage, a director of the Campaign for America’s Future, told the audience as he convened the annual gathering of liberal activists in Washington last week. He accused Obama of being “too cautious,” “pre-compromised,” criticizing his performance on jobs, global warming, defense and foreign policy. 

Another of the speakers at the confab, former Obama White House official Van Jones, said it was the liberals’ own fault for placing too much faith in the president. “We all affiliated (with) him,” he said. “We made a mistake.” Obama “got to become head of state, he got promoted — good for him,” said Jones, who was forced to quit the White House after being attacked by conservative critics. “But here we are — and it’s worse than before.”

Yet, the most striking thing about the progressives’ gathering was how little Obama was mentioned, and how dismissive the few mentions were. When one woman at the convention tried to ignite Obama’s trademark “fired up!” cheer, only a few people responded with the usual answer, “ready to go!” The attempt quickly died.

  1. Obama is on the edge. All he needs to do is alienate a few more middlers. Toast.
