Obama’s Doing

I know I’m late in chiming in on the elections of this week. An excerpt from today’s column:

Now, before some intern at a left-wing media watchdog outfit spits Diet Snapple out his nose in outrage over my “fabrications” and “distortions,” and fires off some canned protest e-mail, I do not literally mean to suggest that Obama promised voters rainbows and puppies. Rather, I mean it figuratively. He did literally promise to change the way Washington works, unify the country, govern from the center, work with Republicans, and operate the government in a fiscally responsible way. That hasn’t happened. You could look it up.

I was on Fox News recently and was asked to debate the proposition that Obama’s candidate endorsements are the “kiss of death.” My response: No, they aren’t the kiss of death, but they certainly aren’t the kiss of life either. They’re more like a kiss from your sister. They add little to no excitement while inviting many unwanted questions.
