Willie Brown, the former Democratic Speaker of the California State Assembly wrote yesterday:
The president’s trip to the Bay Area last week made it painfully clear that the Barack Obama re-election campaign has lost its mojo.
There was no life, no personality, no memorable line or moment and no real enthusiasm in the entire fundraising foray. In short, there was no buzz.
It was like a summer rerun of a show that wasn’t very interesting to begin with.

Obama was more than a candidate last time out. He was a popular and cultural phenomenon. A rock star. But the trouble with rock stars is that they drop like a rock once fans conclude they are “over.”
Via Weasel Zippers via Instapundit. To borrow the California Democrat’s image, seems Obama is like the singer who happens to stumble upon the right song at the right moment. With that that song, he zooms to the top of the charts and the critics awed by the power of that one song define him as the next big thing. Problem is, he just doesn’t have the artistic imagination which allows him to write music for times that are a’changin’.
No wonder the Obama campaign is struggling to come up with a theme for his reelection campaign.
