Why did I already know Obama will win in 2012?
Well I don't know, but I am quite sure; and the reason is this:
There is so much hatred of Obama, and it is so irrationally persistent, that one can only conclude that the noise is due to an underlying bigotry.
People hate Obama in spite of what he does, not because.
I think he is a piss-poor president. But when he gets it right, boy, does he get it right.
And he deserves credit; what I see is the spectacle of people twisting inside out like that snake on my lawn this afternoon, in their efforts to deny that anything good could even have happened, let alone that Obama was responsible.
This is just bigotry.
"I'm not a racialist, but....."
Well here is the news for 2012; the majority of Americans may be many things. They may be overweight. They may be overworked. They may be easily fooled. But they don't like bigots.
And that is why I think that his critics have injured their cause, fatally, and he will return in 2012 for a second term.
