The ultra-conservative New York Post recently commented on the reversal of fortunes of Palin and Obama. This time last year Obama was the sensation, this year it is Palin’s turn.
To quote the article:
“This flip-flop in fortunes stems from many factors, war and recession chief among them. Yet ultimately, Obama has mostly himself to blame.
“He’s aligned himself with the left wing of his party instead of the ordinary Americans who identify with Palin. His Ivy League eloquence seems tired next to her wrong-side-of-the-tracks passion.”
It is stunning to me how people like Rupert Murdoch and his employees can get reality so completely wrong. Obama has not aligned himself with the left. He has bent over backward to not do so. Rather than being a non-partison solution, this strategy, is in fact, his major failing – i.e., refusing to work for and with his base.
On what alternate universe do conservatives camp out?
