Grim Forecast for the Obamessiah

by Van Helsing | August 22, 2008 10:27 am

Gerard Baker has some grim news[1] for the Obamessiah and his followers:

[A]s cruel geography and the selfish designs of the American Founding Fathers would have it, Europeans don’t get to choose the US president. Somewhere along the way to the Obama presidency, somebody forgot to ask the American people.

And wouldn’t you know it, they insist on looking this gift thoroughbred in the mouth. Who’d have thought it? You present them with the man who deigns to deliver them from their plight and they want to sit around and ask hard questions about who he is and what he believes and where he might actually take the country. The ingrates!

Obama’s lead, based on frothy media hype and never that big to begin with, has already evaporated. Most people outside the MSM have noticed that Obama has no qualifications to be President, and that “Hope” and “Change” are vacuous platitudes, not policies. Russia’s belligerence has reminded people that we live in a real world, full of real dangers, and we need a real leader — not an affirmative action post turtle who plays one on TV.

Obama has gone as far as he’s likely to with his cult of personality. As Baker concludes, “the uncomfortable truth for the many devoted fans of Senator Obama is that the more the race is about him, the less likely he is to win it.”

Not everyone’s drinking it.
