From my perspective I see a lot of positive signs comparing the 2008 election to 2012. The pivotal element, the enthusiasm for Barry, simply isn't there. He rode in on the comet of hope and change but that comet has long since flamed out. The 2008 bumper stickers are now old and faded and in most cases not replaced with new ones. Obama signs, which once sprang up like weeds in front lawns all across America are now few and far between. Even his infamous megalomaniacal proclamation at his ascension to the throne "This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal" sustained a black eye, debunking his role as the Messiah, compliments of Hurricane Sandy. The beginning of the end was foreshadowed in the Chick-fil-A incident when the "silent majority" announced...we had enough. Even Obama Girl's affliction, a crush on Obama, is in a state of remission. Maybe Trump can find him a spot on Celebrity Apprentice. After all, that's all he ever was...a celebrity.
