Losing their religion: The Kool Aid of Hope and Change is wearing off

Last week we witness the scales fall from the eyes of a few long time Kool Aid drinkers.  Starting with Obama’s disastrous town hall meeting, where The Won got an earful from some very unhappy Obots.  Viral video superstar Velma Hart eloquently put to words what must be on the minds of every Obama supporter who thought Hope and Change was all about puppy dogs and rainbows.

Ted Brassfield also voiced his disillusionment over Hope and Change.


Today I read that Shepard Fairey, creator of the iconic Hope and Change poster is starting to waiver.

National Journal: The artist whose poster of Barack Obama became a rallying image during the hope-and-change election of 2008 says he understands why so many people have lost faith.
In an exclusive interview with National Journal on Thursday, Shepard Fairey expressed his disappointment with the president -- a malaise that seems representative of many Democrats who had great expectations for Obama.[…] 
"There's a lot of stuff completely out of Obama's control or any of the Democrats' control," Fairey allowed. "But I think there's something a little deeper in terms of the optimism of the younger voter that's happening. They wanted somebody who was going to fight against the status quo, and I don't think that Obama has done that."
While all of these Kool Aid drinkers are now openly admitting their disappointment, they still have not crossed that Rubicon that tells them they swallowed gallons of Kool Aid.  Just like drug addicts and alcoholics who begin to turn their lives around, these folks need to hit the absolute bottom before they realize they have a problem. I suspect two more years of Obama might just be the cure.
