  •  The first pin prick to deflate (5+ / 0-)
    Democrats was Obama and Congresses cave in on the public option.  That was what they risked and they got what they asked for.  Drill baby drill Obama  style and failure to slam Wall Street, among other weak-kneed responses, reinforced the deflation.

    At the rate Obama is going the lack of enthusiasm will be seen in 2012 as well.  His get out the vote operation can't overcome the disappointment people feel about him and his administration.  Look for fewer campaign volunteers, less small contributions and fewer voters.

    What a difference it would make had he come out swinging.  He occasionally jabs, but no combinations and no sustained attack.  Now he's talking against Republicans he hopes in time for November.  Too little, too late.

    The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt. Bertrand Russell
