>Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

>Last year I began commenting that Obama was going to fall
victim to what I referred to as “Ex-Girlfriend Syndrome.” MY
thesis was that those who fall hard for infatuation, when
disillusioned, reverse all of their former ardor from love
to hate. All of the people who had bought into the Obama
ideology would eventually become his worst enemies because
they would feel personally betrayed by his failure to live
up to their ideals, rather than the cool cynicism which most
feel toward once-admired politicians. It was therefore very
interesting to me to see this passage in the WSJ today:

“There is nothing surprising about where Mr. Obama finds
himself today. He had been made by charisma, and political
magic, and has been felled by it. If his rise had been
spectacular, so, too, has been his fall. The speed with
which some of his devotees have turned on him?and their
unwillingness to own up to what their infatuation had
wrought?is nothing short of astounding. But this is the
bargain Mr. Obama had made with political fortune.”
