All we've heard the last few days is how Obama is losing his grip, how people are turning against him, how he is failing as a President. We can all understand how the Republicans want to spread this garbage, but it is still disturbing to see the readiness with which the mainstream media have lapped this lie up, and are regurgitating it for all.
Here's a little chart from Matthew Yglesias, which casts a little light on this propaganda:
As usual, a gigantic Republican lie, willingly retailed by our wonderful "liberal press."
Democrats had better keep their eyes on statistics like this. They can accomplish what the American people elected them to do, if they don't fall into the depression and torpor which they displayed from about 1980 to this year. And they'd better do this, or we may be looking at President Palin one of these days.
The blue dogs had better figure out that, if Obama fails, so do they. And if they stop him from enacting meaningful health care reform (by which I mean a viable public option,) they will be well along to seeing that he does fail.
