This doesn’t delight me anymore

There was a time, when Barack the Lightworker was still in recent memory, when people were still painting things like this (BTW, not safe for work or anyone who ever wants to have sex ever again!), that any sign of liberal blowback, of liberal criticism, was something to cherish in the most lovely schadenfreude, and perhaps a bit of delight over the fact that maybe they aren’t all brainwashed. 

But I think that that day has passed.  Newsbusters points to an article, one among many, from a very leftwing professor detailing President Obama’s failings:

Barack Obama has now, in just a year’s time, become the single most inept president perhaps in all of American history, and certainly in my lifetime. Never has so much political advantage been pissed away so rapidly, and what’s more in the context of so much national urgency and crisis. It’s astonishing, really, to contemplate how much has been lost in a single year.

…he doesn’t really “charge” at anything. He just talks about things, thinks about things a real long time, defers to others on things, and waits around for things to maybe happen.

…I have never seen a president so utterly lacking in passion. This man literally doesn’t even seem to care about himself, let alone this or that policy issue. He doesn’t seem to have any strong opinions on anything, a sure prescription for presidential failure.

…if you’re trying to run the most failed presidency ever, a really good idea is to campaign in the grandest terms possible, and then deliver squat. You know, talk about bending the arc of history. Invoke Martin Luther King’s dream and his struggles and even those of the slaves. Ring the big bells of generational calling. Remind voters every thirty seconds that the country badly needs “Change!”. Then get elected and turn around and continue the policies of your hated predecessor in every meaningful policy area. Only with less conviction. People will love that.

Is it amusing in a way?  Sure.  He’s not wrong, not about anything.  And yet, that’s my country’s president he’s talking about.  I love this country.  On one hand, I can’t defend Obama here, but on the other, I don’t want to see the leader of the U.S.A. maligned quite like this, fairly or not.  I can’t argue against it, so I can only be sad that it has come down to this.
