Obama: one-hit wonder?

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.



  1. Dear Barry,

    We just aren’t that into you anymore.

  2. Yes. Barry O is a shallow, superficial, self-important, cult of personality who benefited from an electorate tired of President Bush & bought into O’s empty Hope & Change to project their ideas for America; meanwhile, the people ignored Obama’s own Marxist past. In a way, the Obama 2008 campaign exploited those weaknesses well.

    Likewise, 2012 is a different animal; there’s no Bush to rail against. Obama must defend ObamaCare, Porkulus, Dodd-Frank, high unemployment, high gas prices, inflation while he runs away from his own record.

    Oh, please post of Twitter #FreeBlueLantern02. Twitter has suspended my account thanks to the Leftists reporting my account as spam. Thanks.

  3. A campaign slogan straight from his favorite pursuit: “Mulligan?”

  4. One-hit wonder?
    His next ‘hit’, if he ever does have one, will be his first.
