QotD, This Isn’t Working Out The Way Obama Expected edition.

Ace of Spades HQ, on what must be a shock to the Obama campaign:

Months ago Obama was proclaiming this to be the most consequential election of our lifetimes. Now he’s desperately trying to distract people from that reality. He doesn’t want people to treat the election as consequential anymore, perhaps because people have decided they fear the Consequences of Obama more than the Consequences of Romney.

What entertains me most is that, four years ago, Obama for America successfully managed to deflect more or less every serious question about Obama’s foreign or domestic policy with an airy Oh, that’s on the website if you really want to look at it.  Annoying, that was; and I’d rather have had the Republican win last time rather than watch OfA squirm now.  But I’ll be blessed if it isn’t entertaining to see the universe whale on the Democrats now with the metaphorical Two-by-Four of Karma.

    When bread is cheap and the circus is in town, people will put up with all kinds of nonsense from politicians.

    When bread is expensive and people can’t afford the circus, they’re much less tolerant.

    This is why Clinton, who was quite the {copulation}-up in his first term, was rewarded with a second one .. there was plenty of bread and cheap circus tickets.
