Great Analysis Of The Failed Obama

A MUST READ by Emory Professor Drew Westen.

I did not vote for Obama( he opposes gay marriage) but my refusal to vote for him is of little comfort to me now. There is a lot of truth to the argument that people saw in him what they wanted to see and voted for that, rather than carefuly examining his positions and his record and basing their vote on who he really is. Professor Westen's essay is spot on. Obama has angered and disappointed both the liberal base and the moderates/independents. I see a devastating loss next election or both houses of congress will return to Republican control, and Obama may well be a one term president. Should this come to pass he has no one to blame but himself.
