An angry professor’s rant: How To Squander the Presidency in One Year

It appears that the light bulb is coming on for some on the left. Today a professor David Michael Green pens a blistering critique of Obama’s first year.  The piece is called How To Squander the Presidency in One Year. It is obviously written from the leftwing perspective, but nonetheless nails some obvious truths.

For example: 

  • While you're at it, 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.  

The real eye opening statement for me was this one: 
Of course, I don't give a shit about Barack Obama anymore, other than my desire that really ugly things happen to him as payment in kind for the grandest act of betrayal we've seen since Benedict Arnold did his thing.  But what about the country?  
Wow! That is what I call bringing it right up to the point of having the Secret Service at your door. Keep in mind if any of you white conservatives ever wrote something like that, the Raaaaacism Industrial Complex would be on your ass like white on rice!

It is a very long and detail rant. I sincerely hope Obama follows Mr. Greens’ suggestion to make a hard LEFT turn. That should guarantee that Obama will be toast come 2012.

Read the whole thing here and make sure to check at the comments too.

So let me see if i understand this...the most failed presidency ever should take its policy agenda and steer it even harder to the left?

By all means go right ahead and i will sit back and enjoy the show.

Thanks for the link, Clifton. Wow, indeed....didn't read all the comments, but the half I did were entertaining.
As for this President, he is no more capable of making a sharp turn in any direction than an aircraft carrier.

With great difficulty, I restrained my laughter. Until the end.


Dude is seriously delusional. Someone better get that man some Haldol - STAT.
