Ted Rall, State Journal-Register 
MIAMI – We expected broken promises. But the gap between the soaring expectations that accompanied Barack Obama’s inauguration and his wretched performance is the broadest such chasm in recent historical memory. This guy makes Bill Clinton look like a paragon of integrity and follow-through.
No further comment.
Well, heck, I’ll comment. This thing is a case study in liberal politics, this is.
It’s apparent that my original comments hold true… There’s no arguing with liberals on a logical basis, because their support for their candidates and for that matter their politics itself, is not based in logic. Thereby, no logic can defeat it. Think about this, now;
“We expected broken promises”?
Rall KNEW Obama was lying from the outset, and yet supported him? What does this say about the truthfulness of Rall himself? In all honesty, it’s nothing that we didn’t already know. But it’s interesting and rare to have such matters displayed so prominently.
He also now … after all this time… admits the sleazy operator Clinton was? And yet supported him as well? Rall Makes excuses for him not only for the eight years that Clinton was in office, but just up until recently as well? And yet he expected Obama represented a change for the better? I’m telling you, friends, Freud woulda had a ball with this guy.
There are a few trends that lend themselves to our deciphering this, however.
You’ll recall Rall just got canned from his op-ed cartoon job a few weeks ago. With this comment from Rall, it’s apparent why. Someone canned his back side because they knew the way things were going with Obama, Rall would be in high dudgeon against The Chosen One before much longer. Can’t have that. Loose cannon on deck, and all that.
The Democrats are in power, and Rall’s out of a job. Ponder that for a moment, all by itself.
There’s one of two ways we can play this.
Either Ted Rall is simply an extraordinarily bitter individual, whose bitterness served the purpose of the Democrats for a while, (See “Willing Idiot” ) and now finds himself with no further purpose for his bitterness now that the Democrats he snarked for, for so long, are in power, or else he’s simply a fool who has finally figured out how foolish he’s been.
Either way, with this complaint from him, the question becomes whether or not he’s going to have the intellectual integrity to work against the reelection of Obama, or will start making excuses for him again, come election time.
We’ll revist this, I’m sure as 2010 and 2012 come along. -E
