utahprez at Polipundit blog has the most spot-on and insightful commentary on Barack Obama, his presidency, and the liberal left and their insufferable syncophants in the mainstream dino-media I’ve read this year. It’s a must-read. He closes with the following:

His protectors are legion. They are from all classes because he represents something different to each of them. In the prologue to the second of his autobiographies, “The Audacity of Hope,” he said:

“I serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their own views.”

They are willing to cover for him because he is black, he is a liberal, he is a lawyer, a community organizer, an elitist, an academic, a leftist politician, a supporter of feminism/abortion, and he is a product of the welfare state and affirmative action. He has tentacles reaching into every bastion of liberal thought. His supporters and defenders look at him and see themselves – every attack on Obama is a personal attack on them, every criticism is a personal affront.

What they didn’t count on was his immaturity of leadership, his indecision and his incompetence. They rushed the incubation of the embryonic Liberal Superman by a few years and birthed him too early. His political gestation was not complete, so instead of a Teflon-coated Liberal SuperReagan stepping forth fully formed from the womb, they got a incomplete, underdeveloped and inexperienced version of Jimmy Carter.

They know that he is failing. The Left is beginning to smell blood in the water – and they are in a panic now that they realize that it is their own. While still remaining on the mild side, Olbermann, Maher, Rosie O’Donnell and Paul Krugman have all taken shots. Chris “Tingle” Matthews has also criticized the One, basically calling him Bush III, saying this about his first Libya speech: “This statement could have been put out by the first President Bush. It has the aspect of an Arabist statement. I shouldn’t be too strong here, but it doesn’t have any dignity.” Dennis “The Menace” Kucinich was quoted as saying that the Libya Kinetic Military Action™ might be “an impeachable offense.”

They know that his Keynesian economic policies have failed, the health care lies told to pass it are being revealed, his foreign policy is coming apart and the social Utopians are restless that nirvana is taking so long to achieve. They know that he is hurting the county…

…but they will always prop him up. Every failure will be spun as a positive. 9% unemployment is the “new-normal”, $14 trillion in debt is nothing to worry about, $5 a gallon gas is good for us, the foreclosure and pension crises are just a right wing plot to embarrass the President.

Why will they protect him in light of what is obvious to rational Americans?

Why? Because all the chips are riding on him – they went all-in hoping to draw to a royal flush, the unbeatable hand. He was the hole card, the ace of spades (no pun intended, spades is generally recognized as the highest suit and the ace completes the A-K-Q-J-10 royal flush). If Obama is recognized as a failure, all that he represents – socialism, big government, social programs, Keynesian economics, welfare, destruction of corporations, redistribution of wealth, elitist academia, what is left of media credibility and above all, liberalism, all go down with him.

They made a big bet.

Liberals needed an ace and drew a joker.

It is a must read, and I hope y’all will take a minute or two to read it.

This emperor is increasingly seen as having no clothes, and 2012 is going to be a very interesting year.
