The Cult Of Obama Crashes And Burns
The hope has gone, the change never came – now people are just pissed off

The image of one man begging on his knees as Obama’s convoy pulls away from a restaurant in Chicago yesterday speaks volumes about how far the man’s status has fallen in the eyes of everyday Americans.
Facing a midterm election defeat unparalleled by any other in history, Obama’s fall from grace represents the stark reality that the people are fuming that they allowed themselves to be sold on empty promises and outright lies.
Today at an indoor arena in Cleveland, Obama spoke to 8,000 people during campaigning at the Democratic National Committee’s Moving America Forward’ rally. The arena’s capacity is 13,000 – meaning it was little more than half full.
The teleprompter reading biological android is limiting himself to campaigning only within the safe blue states and on the Daily Show. He has not even attempted to campaign in Kentucky, West Virginia or Colorado, where the races are close, presumably for fear of tipping them in favor of the opposition.
As political analyst Toby Harnden points out:
The irony of Obama being the blue-state president is acute. Back in 2004, the then state senator shot to international attention by mocking the pundits who “like to slice and dice our country into red states and blue States”.
The hope has gone, the change never came – now people are just pissed off.
