  •  Poor Bob Herbert (0+ / 0-)

    There he goes again spouting right wing nonesense.

    Those of us in red states have been reading all he's writing since right after the inauguration, Obama and the Dems were NEVER ever going to be able to really acheive anything good according to the right.

    And here's poor old Herbert saying by gosh the right was indeed right.

    Poor sad Herbert. I'll say a prayer for him.

    This union may never be perfect, but generation after generation has shown that it can always be perfected. Barack Obama

      Evan Bob Herbert is now being excoriated because he dared to say Obama was not doing enough.

      We need to realize that the many critics are red flags. They are warnings that the electorate will not come out to support Obama next time around and that Obama will not be able to "rally the troops" in support of those Democrats up for re-election this year.

      More important, they are signaling in a big way that the phone-bankers and doorbell-ringers of 2008 cannot be counted upon to re-emerge in similar numbers.

      Most of us who criticize Obama are very afraid of Republicans winning. However, we know that showing loyalty in the diaries and comments of Daily Kos will not help in the next election. Only Obama can make people think that he is leading for change.

      Every time I see a missed opportunity, I fear for my party. And what Obama does not do or does not publicly support speaks directly to the electorate, with or without help from Kos or Bob Herbert. The splits among us are symptoms of, not causes for, Obama failing to connect with those who elected him.
