The liberal left is very vulnerable after the Obama victory. It is true that Obama got 4 more years in the White House. It is also true that he got all the blame when the economy turns sour. And it will turn sour, probably pretty fast. President Obama inherited a huge economic mess when he became President. None of the policies he enacted fixed the underlying problem. In fact, they made the underlying problem worse. When, not if, we have another meltdown worse than 2008, Obama will be helpless to shift the blame. I look for a crushing Democratic defeat in the 2014 midterm elections.

Almost all of the 2012 barryvoters think things are getting better!!!! Unless the right succeeds in educating the voters, the left will succeed again.

Alas, you may be right.

After all, they're already managing to blame "greedy" business owners for trying to save their businesses from Obamacare by adjusting their workforce accordingly.

They not only think things have gotten better, but thanks to the Governor Romney and the GOP not fighting aggressively, and telling the truth to the voters, they STILL blame the economic meltdown on Bush, totally ignoring the part played by a Democratic Congress, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, and good old Barnie Frank&Co.

not yet!

but there is hope.

The conservative Gotterdammerung is finally here. "Like dazed survivors in a ravaged city, America's conservatives are wailing and beating their collective breasts," opines the Economist's "Lexington" columnist. "A leading conservative thinker," asked by the Economist to "list today's conservative ideas, laughs bitterly and replies, 'Are there any?'"

Former Reaganite Rep. Vin Weber (R-Minn.) laments in the conservative journal Policy Review, "I have never been so concerned about the future of conservative ideas."

A Washington Post columnist announced that "the long descent of the Republican Party into irrelevance, defeat, and perhaps eventual disappearance" has finally begun. William Kristol of the Weekly Standard...
