I was laughing yesterday at reading yet another conservative blogger refer to Obama as the Messiah. As a liberal, I’m probably alone in this but I don’t think Obama is the greatest thing since sliced cheese.
I just think he’s not that bad. I have, honestly, enjoyed feeling like I don’t have to tune in for the press conferences or rush to read the morning news to see what terrible bullshit things are happening in our name. To me, Obama doesn’t have to be a good president; he just has to be not that bad.
Are there liberal bloggers who run around all “Obama is going to lift us up and save us all?” I’m sure there are. But in my case, I just kind of like the sense of “Obama is not going to pull us down further.”
