Pissed away: What a difference a year makes


You can see Tour of Echoes here, and read the article I did for The Root from which we created the multimedia piece, as a gift for the Inauguration of Barack Obama.

One year later I offered this Facebook status--picked up by the right wing Tigerhawk blog--out of utter dismay:

Christopher Alan Chambers marvels at how Barack Obama's managed to piss away more hope and goodwill in exactly 1 year than teen newlyweds or a bad football coach. Can't blame Tea Baggers, white people's cognitive dissonance/world view or inheriting a vast mess at home and abroad for everything, folks.


Thoughts?

Bill in Durham said...

His presence changed the history, the current narrative, and our expectations. A bit too reverential? Perhaps, but:

Spitzer pissed away an executive term.

Tiger pissed away a breakthrough sports career.

Palin may not have a pot to demonstrate her prowess in.

But Obama sidestepped a financial disaster, joined with Hillary, and maintained promise if not hope.

Knute Rife said...

The way I see it, Obama has committed two mistakes that, fairly or not, may well torpedo his presidency:

1. He has failed to manage expectations (Granted, we're long past the point when we could get away with expecting campaign rhetoric to become reality, but people expected something.).

2. Instead of working for that something, he has continually undermined himself by attempting to bring folks like TH to the table, which has about as much chance of succeeding as negotiations on Eastern Europe did after WWII with Molotov at the table.

Those may be enough to do him in; his opportunity may have already spun off into the void. If he had any blood to get up, it should have been up already. Instead, he continues to come across as so buttoned-down and detached that if he were to die and come back as a Vulcan, he'd have to loosen up to fit the part.
