“Shock poll” with more bad news for Obama reported at Drudge
Drudge is having great fun with his mischievous photo-headline juxtaposition for this huge headline (though Drudge’s headline font is much bigger than my copy of it):
But then I realized what the left will say. They will say that with Obama, we haven’t had a true black American president. We’ve only had an actually existing black American president.

I don’t get your meaning.Ken Hechtman replies:
The six o’clock news is too depressing. The only way I get to see a successful Democratic president in action is in old episodes of The West Wing.LA replies:
But if you believed what Obama’s critics said, that would make you more negative about Obama, which would make you want to watch more of The West Wing, for the consoling vision of a successful Democratic president.Ken Hechtman replies:
Hanson says Obama is governing from the far left and bulldozing all opposition. To me, that’s a good thing. I’d approve of it if I believed it was true.LA replies:

The Drudge headline reminds me of the great American black baseball pitcher Leroy “Satchel” Paige. He had a set of rules for staying young that used to be seen in various humor sections of magazines such as “Reader’s Digest.” If memory serves, the last one was:Stewart W. writes:
In your interchange with Mr. Hechtman, I wonder if he truly understands the horror that would ensue if his “West Wing President” fantasy came true? If he and the left have someone in mind who is far more effective than Obama, someone who “governs from the far left and bulldozes all opposition,” do they realize that there are cultural tripwires in place that would result in utter catastrophe and ruin for this country, and by extension, for the entire West? Google “Vanderboegh one hundred heads” or “Three Percenters,” and you will get the idea.James P. writes:
Your remark that the Left will say that with Obama, we haven’t had a true black American president reminds me of the Left’s claim that Communism has never truly been tried. Some Leftists even go so far as to say that the Soviet Union was really capitalist, not communist. Thus, when Obama fails catastrophically, they will say he was not “really” black or “really” liberal, because he acted just like that odious white conservative George W. Bush, and thus the Noble Experiment of electing a black liberal still remains to be tried.LA replies:
Of course. That’s what I was paraphrasing when I spoke of what the left would say about Obama.
