As the old saying goes, "Everybody loves a whiner." No wait...it's everybody loves a winner.
Which is why it's odd to hear Barack Obama whining and complaining that Democratic voters who were so fired up by his previous promises of rainbows and unicorns are now, in his words, lethargic, lacking in seriousness, and acting in a manner that is "inexcusable."
In an exclusive interview with the hard-hitting political journal "Rolling Stone," the Petulant of the United States seemed short-tempered about voters who are developing long memories. Apparently reading from a teleprompter programmed for a Sports Illustrated interview, Obama said that no Democratic or Progressive voters should "stand on the sidelines in this midterm election," nor should they "take their ball and go home" just because they expect a shellacking.
The Coach in Chief then expressed exasperation with disappointed Democratic voters, and said they just need to "buck up."
Presumably, many who previously voted for the president will return that same sentiment to him ...and the horse he rode in on.
