Wall Street in revolt?
The NY Times is scary this morning: "Wall Street is deserting Obama," screams the header over Andrew Ross Sorkin's column in the business section. They loved Obama, funded his race for president, but now see him as a traitor to his "elites." They appear to be ready to join Beck's god squad.
Catch this: Sorkin says the Wall-Streeters take Obama's rejection personally. His support for regulation, was compared by one to Hitler's invasion of Poland! My god, Beck might be more like them than Obama ever was!
Here's the rub. Sorkin writes, "Mr. Obama was viewed as a member of the elite, an Ivy League graduate (Columbia, class of ’83, the same as Mr. Loeb), president of The Harvard Law Review — he was supposed to be just like them. President Obama was the 'intelligent' choice, the same way they felt about themselves." I think Sorkin got it right.
Get back to your supporters, Mr. President.
President Petraeus? When do we start to leave Afhanistan and who will decide?

Seems like Obungle has made a career out of masking who, and what, he is. Or might be. The person who wants to please everyone, and is "pragmatic" to a fault, just ends up pissing everybody off.
We saw hints of this with Clinton and triangulation strategies. Now we see it to a greater degree with Obungle.
This guy seems to have gulled both sides of the spectrum and passed it off as moderate. What it is is nothing more than balony. It makes you wonder just who the hell would vote for him if an election were held today.
Of course if he runs in 2012,and loses, the only narrative the Dems will bother to build will be that is was all due to nasty sniping from the radical left wingers of the party.
Time to lose this schmuck. Drop him like a bad habit and find someone else for 2012. Since pundits like MacNally want to play fantasy elections I may as well join the crowd. Dems will likely take a pasting in the mid-terms. Obungle won't care. And it will all be the fault of the lefties. They will stay home because they are ticked off with the corporatist agenda of Obungle. Odd, because the corporatists never wanted him to succeed anyway. Or, as your post notes, they feel cheated. Nice job Obungle.
