"I've never seen the standards set so high for one person..."
Hardworkingdem on Barack Obama

Ummmm... I think we all DO know a person who was, and continues to be, set to even higher standards. Even impossible standards. And he curiously never seems to measure up to said standards. :eyes:

Now who might that person be?

3. Especially when the bar is set SO LOW for the opponent
Corporate media was thrilled when Chimpy managed to sort of spout a complete thought. And his opponent ... yeah, well.

What does concern me is there is a similar pattern being set up for Obama as there was for JK. The barrage of criticism of Obama is nonstop ... just as I remember hearing about JK in 2004 ... and then the progressives pick up on it and turn on THEIR OWN CANDIDATE.

And then you get what we've had for 4 years ... He didn't do enough ... he let us down ... I'll never forgive him ... blah, blah, blah. :banghead:

4. I'm also totally sick of that blah, blah, blah
Enough already! To the blah-blah-blahers , I say: "Stop kvetching and , once and for all, LOOK at this man, and acknowledge his courage, his integrity, and what he's done, and is doing, for our country.

5. I know who you are talking about too. Probably even harder standards...
But some of Obama's supporters on DU sometimes drive me crazy by the way they refuse to accept the mildest criticism.
