Eulogy for Hopenchange: Maureen Dowd Obliterates Hapless Obama

She's thisclose to dumping that precious boytoy she lustily embraced back in 2008, just as I suspect any Democrat with a pulse and a mortgage is about to now. Obama's pretty much now reduced to punchline status and it's time to open the floodgates. Over to you, MoDo.
Obama is still suffering from the Speech Illusion, the idea that he can come down from the mountain, read from a Teleprompter, cast a magic spell with his words and climb back up the mountain, while we scurry around and do what he proclaimed.

The days of spinning illusions in a Greek temple in a football stadium are done. The One is dancing on the edge of one term.

The White House team is flailing — reacting, regrouping, retrenching. It’s repugnant.

After pushing and shoving and caving to get on TV, the president’s advisers immediately began warning that the long-yearned-for jobs speech wasn’t going to be that awe-inspiring.

“The issue isn’t the size or the newness of the ideas,” one said. “It’s less the substance than how he says it, whether he seizes the moment.”

The arc of justice is stuck at the top of a mountain. Maybe Obama was not even the person he was waiting for.
She'll still vote for him, though. Him or Hillary.

Reminds me of this:

"But when the cloud of rhetoric has passed, when the roar of the crowd fades away, when the stadium lights go out, and those Styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot..."   -Sarah Palin RNC Convention

Even Modo can see the writing on the teleprompter. The king has no clothes. It's too bad she didn't have her eyes open three years ago. The same goes for all the other fools and the media who put this regime in power. We told you so.

The media created him.  The media supported him.  The media have propped him up.

Do NOT believe for a minute that MoDO is turning on him or abandoning him.  The pupose of her column is to motivate Obama to announce a "BIG" jobs plan that the socialists at the New York Times can then praise. 

But if he doesn't follow through with what the socialists want, then MoDo and the rest of her crew will just go back to trashing Perry or whoever within a week.  It's that simple.
