How bad has it gotten for the White House’s resident Marxist? Even his hometown paper is suggesting he give up any thoughts of running for re-election.
Chicago Tribune columnist Steve Chapman wrote Sunday that when Ronald Reagan ran for re-election his slogan was “Morning in America,” but for President Barack Obama “it’s more like midnight in a coal mine.” (And for those who love to look for signs of racism in any critique of the President, I don’t believe “midnight” referred to Obama himself, but rather the dark state of the country.)
Chapman references the book, Second Term Blues, and points out that the second terms for Presidents seldom measure up to the first.
“Presidential encores are generally a bog of frustration, exhaustion and embarrassment,” Chapman writes. “They are famous for lowest moments rather than finest hours.”
No wonder the “Draft Hillary” express is stoking its boiler on the siding.
