QotD, The Hill Tells A Fib edition.

Really?  REALLY?

 Few could have foreseen this White House struggling so much after Obama’s convincing 332-206 electoral vote victory over Mitt Romney last November.

Well. I guess that I’m one of the few, then.

12/08/2012:

…that’s why I am not as worried about Obama’s second term as some; I’ve seen his first term, you see.  The major difference between that one and this one is that his own party had a vested interest in playing nice with the man running for re-election; but now that it’s clear that Barack Obama does not like other people very much, has no interest in stumping for his own side’s candidate, and simply does not like to exert any effort beyond the bare minimum: well.  He wants to play aloof, then Harry Reid will happily become the most important Democrat in Washington DC by default.

Seriously, it didn’t take much in the way of precognition to realize that Barack Obama was going to flounder, once the main reason why the White House got up in the morning went away.  I guess the Hill should read me more often…

    The whole “Few could have foreseen” line reminds me of a classic bit from Beyond The Fringe:

    “Young men, scarcely boys, tossed aside youthful things and grew up overnight in the grimmer game that is war. A game where only one side is playing the game. Young men flocked to join the Few.”
    “Please, sir, I want to join the Few.”
    “I’m sorry, there are far too many.”

    Except Reid isn’t the most important Donk — it’s Chucky Schumer.
