Barack Obama: An Emptier Vessel Than Usual?

Geez...after being elected on the mantra of "Hope and Change", and governing for some 20 months, this is the best Barack Obama can come up with as he desperately barnstorms the nation looking to hold on to his congressional majority?

“Don’t give in to fear,” President Obama said Monday, in a campaign stop in Milwaukee. “Let’s reach for hope.”

As Pete Wehner says:

When Obama said those words in 2008, they were empty. Now, more than 18 months into his presidency, they are discredited.

The public is rising up in massive numbers against Obama’s version of “hope and change” — and Obama’s party is going to suffer massively because of it.

Well, while the president offers platitudes to the masses, he gets more specific with his sycophants down in Hollywood:

President Obama told a Hollywood fundraiser Monday night that he and congressional Democrats have passed the most progressive legislation in decades."

We have been able to deliver the most progressive legislative agenda -- one that helps working families -- not just in one generation, maybe two, maybe three," Obama said.

Obama is always more honest on the West Coast, surrounded by the like-minded, and that's when he speaks from the heart - whether it is about folks "clinging" to God and guns, or boasting about just how radical his agenda is. But for us, the average citizen? Open wide and take whopping spoonfuls of "Yes We Can Hope And Change Since We Are The Ones We Have Been Waiting For"....

Is it because we can't handle the truth, or that Obama is aware that in fact it is the truth - about himself , and his party - that is causing the public to "rise up in massive numbers"?

Expect more of the same - baseless attacks and nonsensical chanting in lieu of policy discussion. And when the Democrats get their asses handed to them in November, we'll be told that it's because we're the "stupid" ones....

Hope is not a strategy.
