I know, I know…2012 is a long way away. But, all things considered, you have to wonder about President Obama chances of serving two terms when the liberal blogosphere says this about him:
Not only is Obama a gold medal winner in flip-flopping, not only does he lack core ideals from the Democratic side of the Democratic party, he also has no leadership skills, at least leadership for progressive values. So once again, as in health care reform and on a score of other issues, the Obama administration had a real chance to propose fundamental changes of its own to the Patriot Act, but failed to do so. Again, as in health care reform, Obama has passed the buck to Congress where, of course, he knows that nothing will happen even though his own party has overwhelming majorities in both the Senate and the House and where his own administration has effectively undercut efforts for change.
They are talking about the fact that Obama was against the Patriot Act before, but just signed an extension on it.
He’s losing his base. How interesting it would be to see him face a primary challenger come 2012.
What say you? Will he have trouble within his party, or can he turn it around?
