The story and what is behind it as well as what is now ahead are all bigger than Obama. His opponents knew this all along as we saw his mortal-ness from day one. Those that continue to view him on high do so at their own peril. Then again those that kool aided out aren’t likely to ever occupy the plane of reality. He has the aptitude for leadership but is quickly eroding his ability to do much. Sane folks can see why he’s getting so ancy about healthcare now. He’ll likely look to FP,Iraq most likely to score his needed win in the fall since healthcare reform is likely to die this summer.
I said that in a comment over at Rutherfords. I thought on it for about as long as it takes to finish a cup of coffee and decided to expand on it.
The story is the Cambridge PD,Gates,”acted stupidly” storm. A storm it surely is as it fell upon a cycle begging for something other than health care reform and it went category 4 pretty much. It is still grabbing headlines and doing so in a fashion that shows the WH is on defense. Not a good place to go. Unfortunately some Michigan GOP dickhead is about to help the away team by proposing a measure requiring an apology from the President. Hopefully that story doesn’t have legs but is something Obama surrogates could clearly use to stir the racism pot. To what end ? It’s a pretty foolish choice but so is demanding an apology and attempting to create the bigger and better wedge issue.
I predict this story and it’s related fallout has about 10-14 days of life left in it. That is comparable to an eternity when you think about the possible chain reactions that could occur. I’m not for the doomsday stuff though so I’m going with it dying.
- The 2010 definitely and 2012 elections will see an effort to showcase police displeasure over the Dems. Let’s face it we’re broke so another Quinn Bill ain’t gonna happen.mmmm??
- Obama has lost the race here. Healthcare reform will die this summer and he will have to go for a quick win. Being a (D) one would think he’d go domestic issue. I think he’ll announce a ratcheted up withdrawal/homecoming of overseas troops. I also see a couple of anti Bush policy executive orders in the crystal ball.
- Obamabots will launch an offensive very soon.This one is a bit fuzzy. I can’t really be sure it’s an offensive action or just a perverted defensive one. The latter could transpire if fringe GOPers feel emboldened by false victories and stretch themselves on bogus sound bites as opposed to substance laden alternatives. One way or another Soros and others will be cracking open the check books and the nutters are a comin.
