I am starting to feel bad for Obama (just a little). I wonder what it does to a man to turn from the object of so much adulation to being so throughly disliked, all in so brief span of time. The liberals are disillusioned, the "moderates" have lost interest, and the conservatives haven't been appeased one bit, no matter how timid Mr. President has been.

Of course then I read this:
That appears to be the only way, said David Axelrod, that middle-class taxpayers can keep their tax cuts... "We have to deal with the world as we find it," Axelrod said... "The world of what it takes to get this done."
I suppose it is only pragmatic, but it is the pragmatism of the defeated. Doesn't Obama & co. know that "Change we can believe in" is not merely the conservation and/or accommodation of the status quo?

How does Obama expect people to fight for him and his agenda, when he won't even fight for them himself?
