I think that you had your heart set on a Democratic romp in the 2010 midterms and with a Dem in the WH, especially one not named Hillary Clinton, John Edwards or Dennis Kucinich, you decided to push the pnaic button.
In short, you've got a clinker in your head about Obama, or you have your heart so set on the Dems partying like it's 1974 at the lower levels that it's clouded your perspective.
What's your problem Kent? This is beginning to sound like something far beyond politics.
Are you the only person in your neighborhood who doesn't have a bedsheet in his closet?
You don't think Obamam earned his election?
Jimmy Carter was a fish out of water, at best the fall guy for an out of gas governing coalition that should have gotten the gate in 1968, but for some reason didn't

How you can say it was handed to him is beyond me and in a lot of ways he is very much up to the job. Just beacause you, Jerome and everyone else on this Limbaugh Liberal web site are panicking over the stopped clock elections and don't like the way he's doing as job as party leader in a difficult time doesn't give you any reason to brand him a failure.
I agree with you Rhoda. I don't know if the Dems have beaten back the GOP, but there seems to be a change in the atmosphere over the last month or so. At least you're not throwing the towel in and you have some points to ponder for the future.
Alas, this is the liberal blogosphere and encouraging words are very hard to come by, even in the best of times.
I'm not an Obamoron, I happen to be a student of history and judging from what you've been writing I wonder about what you're projecting onto the President.
"A sick man?"
Are you serious?
In all honesty, you're probably right about the 49-state landslide. After all, it takes more of the smaller states the GOP usually carries in order to get 13 or 17 electoral votes and history doesn't repat as much as it rhymes.
