Greenwald grows weary with Obama apologists

Ouch. No spiffy gift DVD sets for you this year Glenn.

...It's also worth noting how completely antithetical claims are advanced to defend and excuse Obama. We've long heard -- from the most blindly loyal cheerleaders and from Emanuel himself -- that progressives should place their trust in the Obama White House to get this done the right way, that he's playing 11-dimensional chess when everyone else is playing checkers, that Obama is the Long Game Master who will always win. Then, when a bad bill is produced, the exact opposite claim is hauled out: it's not his fault because he's totally powerless, has nothing to do with this, and couldn't possibly have altered the outcome. From his defenders, he's instantaneously transformed from 11-dimensional chess Master to impotent, victimized bystander.

The supreme goal is to shield him from all blame. What gets said to accomplish that goal can -- and does -- radically change from day to day...

FWIW, the above Greenwald slam against the O-bots was posted as an update to the original piece, so many may have not seen it unless they came back and revisited the piece.

The behavior Greenwald describes in those last two sentences is very characteristic of a narcissist's groupies. Their idol simply can do no wrong. Failures are ALWAYS someone else's fault.
