With absolute power, Team Obama grows stupid

How could such smart people do so many stupid things? That question, or variations on it, is being asked in Washington and around the country about the Obama administration.
The same people who directed the campaign that defeated Hillary Clinton and routed John McCain, a campaign that raised far more money and attracted far more volunteers than any before it, have within a year come up with a legislative program that is crashing in ruins and that, to judge from recent polls, has left the Democratic party weaker than I have seen it in almost 50 years of closely following politics.
IT'S NOT THAT THEY BECAME STUPID.
IT'S THAT THEY WERE POPULAR DURING THE CAMPAIGN BECAUSE - WITH THE COLLUSION OF THE MSM - THEY RAN OBAMA AS A CENTRIST.
THEY HAVE TRIED TO GOVERN AS THE LEFTISTS WE KNEW THEY ALWAYS TRULY WERE, AND THEY RAN INTO A LITTLE PROBLEM: THE PUBLIC IS NOT STUPID AND HATES BEING DUPED.
IT'S ALL OVER FOR THEM BECAUSE THE PUBLIC WILL NOT ALLOW THEMSELVES TO BE BURNED TWICE.
