Yes, there has been obvious and rising criticism of Barack Obama from the leftysphere and other "progressive" quarters in recent months. It is, though, a bit hard for those of us on the, er, not-left, to know whether the White House is actually worried about it. Some small evidence that it is: Valerie Jarrett has written a piece for the HuffPo with the curious headline "Why I'm Proud to Be Part of President Obama's Team." Apparently that is no longer self-evident, even to the readers of the Huffington Post.
I am looking forward to the day when the clueless black lefties start distancing themselves from Obama saying, "He's so dumb, lazy, shiftless, incompetent and mendacious that he is only adding to the stereotype!"
And, of course, that is what he is doing every day. We've tried an affirmative action president; it has failed, let's move on!
Will someone with the capability begin counting "resign" and "impeach" citations over the next six months? There will be more and more of them, although, Pelosi and Reid whose jobs are "safe," will vigorously reject either growing call.
Blacks take pride in Obama having been elected, with justification. If the Democrats try to unseat him they'll pay a big price at the polls for a long time. Blacks may not vote Republican, but they will stay home.
Dennis Kuchinich may run a challenge on a true left / anti-war platform. No other Democrat will have the balls to run a challenge, even Hillary who's too old. Obama should welcome Kuchinich as a useful foil on the campaign trail.
If Obama succeeds in raising a lot of money in this campaign, he can buy a lot of support in Congress. After the White House don't be surprised if Obama runs for Senator again and tries to be kingpin of the Democrats. What else is he going to do ... teach law?
