Here is an excerpt from a story published by The Telegraph British newspaper:
Finding it hard to defend his often listless and repetitive performances, Democratic strategists and commentators are privately agreeing with Republicans and comparing Mr Obama to Jimmy Carter, another Democrat who remains the post-war benchmark for a failed president.
Meanwhile, the St. Louis Today website has published a commentary by Bill McClellan titled “I should have picked Hillary over Obama”. Here is an excerpt of McClellan’s comments:
. . . I was there when the networks declared that Obama was the next president. People cried and hugged. I got teary myself. A black president. The times they are a-changing.
Indeed. They keep getting worse.
. . . So here we are almost 2 1/2 years into his presidency. We’re still in Iraq, still in Afghanistan. The economy is still in the Dumpster. U.S. credit has been downgraded. We’ve got a half-baked health care reform law that is being challenged. The middle class is still getting crushed.
The people who voted for Obama were hoping that he would provide them with change. Now, they are discovering that they would have been better off begging for it.
