"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

The Worms Turn on Prezidizzle O'Bizzle

OK, I don't like Obama, that's a given.   And conservatives in general don't like him.   Again:  given.   Moderates and independents (meaning people who most days don't think very long or very deeply about politics) are starting to turn against him, mostly about the debt.  

But when a liberal like Michael Tomasky, writing in The Daily Beast, turns on him, you know that the jig may be up for Prezidizzle O'Bizzle:

More dispiriting news, this time about the White House overturning the EPA’s proposed new rules on smog. That comes a few hours after the jobs report from Friday morning, one of the bleakest yet. And it comes a few days in advance of what everyone expects will be a small-thinking, modest, blah jobs speech by the president. It’s not only getting to the point where it’s getting hard to see him winning reelection. It’s getting to the point where it’s hard to imagine people taking him seriously for the remaining 14 months of his current term.
Exactly so.   Now, if only the country can survive until then.
