Obama’s Oil Speech Leads To A Gusher Of Liberal Criticism

If you’re Barack Obama and you’ve lost the Three Stooges of MSNBC, Olbermann, Mattthews and Fineman, (like to self starting video) Eugene Robinson and Maureen Dowd you might not think that the oil spill is the biggest problem you’ve got.

I doubt the spill and the disastrous speech it spawned will be the permanent end of the great political-media love affair of our time but things will never be the same again.

The liberal chattering class invested so much hope in the unknown Senator with the dreamy pecs, that they were blind to all his faults. Now those faults are all too clear…he’s clueless. The detached Spock like monk they loved so much doesn’t turn into the raging Spock suffering from the Pon Farr on command. “Where’s the passion, the righteous anger?”, they ask. Alas, it’s not to be found. Worse still, where’s the competence? Wasn’t this Dream Team of Rivals supposed to be everything that the cowboys from Texas and Wyoming weren’t? And yet when faced with the first great crisis of his presidency, Obama has MIA on substance and rhetoric.

“How can this be?”, they wonder.

Naturally, the liberal chattering classes will never admit they were wrong. They will never admit that they, the hard-boiled, cynical self-appointed protectors of the Republic were sold a bill of goods by a snake oil salesman.

No dear Barack, the fault will not lay in them but you.

You see the pundit class stays and is this permanent protector of the liberal flame. Presidents come and go. Some make a mark, some not so much, but pundits, like bureaucrats are forever. Some one will have to pay the price for the sagging fortunes of the liberal dream and the likes of Matthews, Dowd and Robinson will be damned if it’s going to be them.

Obama always talked about wanting to bridge the partisan divide and now’s his chance. He’s going to get a taste of what it’s like to be the object of the herds scorn, in other words, a Republican. In some ways he won’t get treated that badly, he is one of them after all but in other ways it will actually be worse because there is one hell worse than a woman scorned…a pundit class attempting to defect blame and avoid responsibility for being duped by a mere politician (even one of their own creation).

It’s almost enough for me to feel bad for Obama….but not quite enough. So yes, yes I will have another serving of schadenfreude.
