Lost hope

Heh… From the National Journal:

Even Shepard Fairey's Losing Hope
The artist whose poster of Barack Obama became a rallying image during the hope-and-change election of 2008 says he understands why so many people have lost faith.

In an exclusive interview with National Journal on Thursday, Shepard Fairey expressed his disappointment with the president — a malaise that seems representative of many Democrats who had great expectations for Obama.

Gee — you elect someone who has never managed anything, whose educational stats are kept behind a firewall (and given Obama's ego, had he done well in school, he would be trumpeting them to show how smart he was), whose place of birth is up for grabs and who has no proven political track record (voted 'present' during his term in the Senate) and you wonder why he is Presidency is failing? Really?

A bit more — this wonderful clueless paragraph just jumped out at me:

“There's a lot of stuff completely out of Obama's control or any of the Democrats' control,” Fairey allowed. “But I think there's something a little deeper in terms of the optimism of the younger voter that's happening. They wanted somebody who was going to fight against the status quo, and I don't think that Obama has done that.”

Excuuuuuuuse me… The Democrats control the House. The Democrats control the Senate. The President is a Democrat. What part of “out of Obama's control” are you referring to.
