Obama’s winter of discontent coincides with real winter, as well as the worst poll numbers of his presidency

The president’s untruths about the Affordable Care Act will continue to haunt him. This is the first time that reasonable people have caught the president telling an explicitly incontestable untruth. Winter and its surrounding holidays are made for long views during which the president might take stock, ruminating on the most significant evidence of his deteriorating position, which is polls that show him losing the confidence of the young.

Those who have found his management skills wanting, who have been baffled by his inability to communicate, those who are disconcerted by his drone policy and disappointed by his failure to nationalize the banks on his first day in office and dismayed by his presidency’s worst and most dishonest moment—botched websites notwithstanding. The signing of the baldly unconstitutional National Defense Authorization Act, just to mention a few.

Obama has the worst enemies anyone can have, and they’re enemies who have drawn a line in the sand on him and I’m one of them. His Presidency will be recorded in history as a tribune for lost causes such as the most lost of all: the disintegration of what not so long ago still hoped to be an egalitarian republic into a craven and bitter oligarchy.
