Please show this article to any of Obama's remaining supporters who are not delusional
Yeah, I'm an optimist. Via VastLeft, in the Glob:
The Democratic [sic] president typically offers up GOP leaders of the past as evidence of a Washington that can work to pursue big ideas and rebuild the economy. And by doing so, Obama hopes to persuade voters of all political leanings that he, like his Republican predecessors, is a reasonable moderate. At the same time, he's casting Romney as a candidate who would embrace too-conservative policies out of step with most Americans.
Obama invoked Reagan's name four times this week in a speech to The Associated Press annual meeting.
"Give him ___ months!" "It takes 60 votes!" "11-dimensional chess!" "Make him do it!" "He's smarter than you!" Readers, feel free to add more alibis in comments.
If Obama's fans would just be honest and say Obama's their guy, no matter what, that would be fine.
But no. Take the ACA. ObamaCare is RomneyCare. It was conceived in the hallowed halls of the Heritage Foundation, and first implemented, yes, by Mitt Romney. And that bill is what Obama supporters want to "riot" about; a neo-liberal giveaway to the health insurance companies with a few sweeteners, designed to head off single payer.
