Ted Rall's Fool Us Twice? is up to his usual highly caustic standards, particularly when he wonders "What, exactly, will be Obama's 2012 sales pitch?"
I seriously want to know. Think about it: how many other presidents have been so disappointing that they had to distribute lists of their accomplishments so their supporters would have talking points?
After discussing some of Obama's first-term wins, Rall asks, "Will micro-mini-accomplishment lites be enough to pry liberal asses off the sofa on Election Day?"
I think not. On the Big Issues That Really Matter--war, the economy, civil liberties--Obama is a right-wing Republican. He's only a Democrat on the little stuff. Liberals won't turn out big for Obama in 2012.
That goes double for the youth vote, a big bloc for O in 2008. From student loan debt to unemployment (which hits Americans under 30 even harder than other age groups), Obama hasn't delivered. They'll sit on their hands.
