Obama promised leftists he would “fundamentally change the face of the nation.”  He did, just not the way leftists hoped.

Obama pledged redistribution of wealth and he delivered, distributing bailouts to failing banks and car companies. But leftists envisioned ending capitalism as we know it, creating a glorified state of Utopian collectivism. Obama swore an end to war, not escalation.  And ridding America of SUVs and oil hasn’t happened.  The Messiah of “Hope and Change” did not keep his promises.  He turned out to be another politician!

Did the well-educated left-wing truly believe one of their own would never deceive them?  Leftists constantly commit perjury, why wouldn’t Obama behave in the same fashion as all radical Alinskyites? (While playing golf and eating shrimp of course.)

The Left simply can’t understand how the glorified One could possibly break promises and behave like a politician, so they’ve turned to their experts in order to understand why he turned out to be such a failure.

Author Ari Berman says he keeps asking where Obama went wrong. After all, Obama’s election was “historical.” But suddenly the Tea Party emerged and everything the Annointed One promised collapsed, fallen by the wayside, forgotten.  Berman wants to know what happened to Obama; why has he failed?

Harvard University Public Policy lecturer and Obama political organizer Marshall Ganz answers this question in the LA Times:

President Obama entered office wrapped in a mantle of moral leadership.  His call for change was rooted in values that had long been eclipsed in our public life: a sense of mutual responsibility, commitment to equality and belief in inclusive diversity. Those values inspired a new generation of voters, restored faith to the cynical and created a national movement. Now, 18 months and an ‘enthusiasm gap’ later, the nation’s major challenges remain largely unmet, and a discredited conservative movement has reinvented itself in a more virulent form.  This dramatic reversal is not the result of bad policy as such; the president made some real policy gains.  It is not a consequence of a president who is too liberal, too conservative or too centrist.  And it is not the doing of an administration ignorant of Washington’s ways.  Nor can we honestly blame the system, the media or the public — the ground on which presidential politics is always played.  It is the result, ironically, of poor leadership choices.

Touching Obama’s “moral mantle” hasn’t healed the economy or raised dead industry.

Ganz told The Nation’s Ari Melber Obama’s presidency problem is Saul Alinsky amnesia:
