"Dead Center" defines this administration.
Like Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter and Lyndon Johnson before him, Barack Obama has been astonishingly effective in one thing---alienating those who most avidly supported him. His number one enemy has been the base that put him in the White House.
Some liberals point confidently to disarray among the Republicans as a saving grace. This desperate delusion requires we forget Germany's Weimar regime, which made the same fatal mistake in the lead-up to World War II. Never underestimate the "outsiders" in a nation where millions are desperate.
Having taking office on the sales pitch of "Hope," the Democrats can be counted on only for timidity and incompetence.
The grassroots can do better. As always, that's where our true hope resides.
