Buyer's remorse

From David Sirota, original supporter of phony populist John Edwards and charter member of the Hillary-haters' club:

"[T]he Obama movement undeniably revolves around the president-elect's individual stardom — and specifically, the faith that he will make good decisions, whatever those decisions are. . . . This is the mythic "independence" we're supposed to crave — a czar who doesn't owe anyone. It is the foreseeable result of a Dear Leader-ism prevalent in foreign autocracies, but never paramount in America until now. . . For better or worse, that leaves us relying more than ever on our Dear Leader's impulses. Sure, we should be thankful when Dear Leader's whims serve the people — but also unsurprised when they don't."

Sirota originally backed Edwards over Hillary because he was "scandal free". (How'd that turn out?)

Then, Sirota gleefully joined the Obama-bots in demanding Hillary get out of the way of history.

Now, Sirota acknowledges that Obama leads a personality driven, values free cult? When anyone said that in October, the Sirota / progressive crowd questioned their motives.

If it wasn't for my IRA and 401K being worth half what they were a year ago, fears of emboldened Islamoterrorism, and worries about the security of my job and my wife's job and my two kids' future...

I'd be sitting back with some popcorn and enjoying the hell out of the next four years.
