Maureen Dowd Falls Out of Love With Obama

Manasquan, NJ -
I do not subscribe to The New York Times and do not read it with only
one exception. Every Sunday I do read Maureen Dowd’s column.
She
is a very good writer which, in itself, is reason enough to read her,
but more importantly she is a weather vane pointing the direction that
liberals are taking on issues, individuals, and events.
Ms. Dowd
joined The Times in 1983 as a metropolitan reporter, eventually becoming
a columnist in 1995. Her columns regarding Clinton’s Monica Lewinsky
scandal earned her a Pulitzer Prize. She had become the rare doyenne of
The Times ever since, known for not suffering fools easily and for
drawing blood when her political antennas pick up an egregious
deception.
Quote:Despite her liberal credentials, she is far less easily duped than most.
After
attending the Democratic Party convention in Charlotte and listening to
President Obama’s acceptance speech, she jumped ship, abandoning her
previous opinions of him. In the Sunday, September 9th, edition she wrote:
Quote:“In
his renomination acceptance speech here on Thursday night, he told us
that America’s problems were tougher to solve than he had originally
thought. And that’s why he has kindly agreed to give us more time.
Because, after all, it’s our fault.”
Dowd picked up
on a theme of Obama’s speech that was missed by just about every other
political pundit I heard or read in the days since.
Quote:She quoted Obama saying, “So you see, the election four years ago wasn’t about me. It was about you. My fellow citizens, you were the change.”
Her skeptical response was “We were the change? Us?” When Obama said that his supporters were the only ones with the power “to move us forward”, Dowd mocked him saying “We’re
so lame. We were naïve, brimming with confidence that we could slow the
rise of the oceans, heal the planet, fix the cracks in the Capitol
dome.”

Dowd did not spare the Republicans, her bete noir, the anathema of all liberals, but then concluded
“We’re older, wiser and grayer now. It’s depressing to look back and
remember what soaring hopes we had for ourselves only four years ago.
Did we overdo it with the Greek columns? Sheesh, a million people showed
up for our inauguration. Now we brag when we break 10,000.”

Quote:“Our
forebearing leader didn’t pander to us with that standard breakup line:
‘It’s not you, it’s me.’ He gave it to us straight” It’s not me, it’s
you.”
If a conservative columnist had written
that line, it would just be sour grapes, but when Ms. Dowd writes it, it
is a major condemnation, a reflection on Obama’s most famous trait of
refusing to take the blame for anything, including the failure of his
own programs for the past nearly four years.
What struck me as
well was the way Ms. Dowd’s revised opinion of Obama was reflected in a
September 6 column written by another female columnist, Kimberly A. Strassel
of The Wall Street Journal. Only her column was not one of
disappointment, but rather a sharp analysis of the destruction Obama has
brought upon the Democratic Party that just nominated him for a second
term.
Quote:“Lost in the adulation,” wrote Ms. Strassel,
“was the diminished state to which he has brought his broader party.
Today’s Democrats are a shadow of 2008—struggling for re-election,
isolated to a handful of states, lacking reform ideas, bereft of a
future political bench. It has been a stunning slide.”

“It
took Mr. Obama two years to destroy this potential, with an agenda that
forced his party to field vote after debilitating vote—stimulus,
ObamaCare, spending, climate change. The public backlash, combined with
the president’s mismanagement of the economy, has reversed Democrat’s
electoral gains and left a party smaller than at any time since the
mid-1990s.”
Maureen Dowd feels jilted. “We are grateful to the president for deigning to point out our flaws and giving us another chance” she wrote with every word dripping with disdain for Obama.
And if she feels this way, imagine how many more Democrats in particular and Americans in general must feel that way as well?

The problem is, and always has been, that those in the news media have "fallen in love" with ANY candidate.

For instance my wife has her flaws as does every human being, but I do not necessary care about them and I sure as HELL would not point them out to someone else. I'm in love with my wife, I do not want her to look bad to others. By extension, I do not want to make myself look bad, for loving her despite of (or maybe because of) her flaws.

Reporters should be the investigators of the people on dating sites, not the site owners who want to sell information on the prospective clients they happen to find appealing

His pen to God's and the electorates ears.

Make no mistake, there are layers of Democrat support that OhBahMuh still enjoys. Including illegal voters, non-citizen voters, dead voters, cartoon character voters, sports team voters etc. They will pull out all the stops. They are already disenfranchising the military vote, blocking the use of voter IDs, using a company that is friendly to them to tabulate the results.......

Uphill boys n girls, uphill.

If Maureen Dowd is saying it, that gives Dems permission to think it and feel it. The smartest man in the world can no longer fool all of his followers. Maybe more Dems will stay home this election day, thinking about what could have been.

One thing Obama said must be true.

He stated Osama Bin Laden is dead.

This must be true.

He is now offically registered to vote in Chicago!!
(See, he doesn't always lie.)


God bless!!
