So. The Left has gone from “We must elect Barack Obama to the Presidency so that He may unleash His awesomeness upon the country, and make everything better” to “We must convince Barack Obama to not run for re-election so that He may… unleash His awesomeness upon the country, and make everything better.”
This is progress, I guess?
It’s also just not going to happen. Everybody else is linking to this American Narcissus post by Jonathan Last, so I might as well, too. After reading, you may be forgiven for deciding that people might as well get used to the idea that the only way that President Obama is not going to be the Democratic nominee in 2012 is to have somebody beat him in the primary. Fortunately – for the GOP – there’s a PERFECT liberal candidate for that sort of thing. He’s even going to be looking for work next year!
Hope that helps.
