"Welcome To Moonbat Nation, Mr. President!"

Howie Carr of the Boston Herald spots Obama treading water amongst disappointed true believers:

moonbatnation10-09Welcome to Boston, Mr. President. Stand by for the angry moonbat demonstrators.

They’re mad as hell at you and they’re not going to take it anymore. They don’t like what you’re saying on two or three issues out of a hundred. So you have to be ridden out of town on a rail.

Celebrate diversity – get somebody fired for having a different opinion. Welcome to my world, Barack.

So the moonbats will be parading around wherever you stop today and stamping their little Birkenstock-clad feet and demanding that you be held accountable . . . for something.

Welcome to Boston, a demonstration in search of a cause. A rabble in search of a rouse.

A few weeks ago, Mark Steyn wrote, “Democrats win by pretending to be to the right of who they really are. Their base understands and accepts this.”

To say the least, the truest of the true believers might not accept it very graciously, though. Carr’s article is a pretty good look at the shock that occurs when the religious left observe former deity that they themselves constructed last year on the campaign trail rendered mortal by having to actually govern. Or as Jonah Goldberg wrote this past summer, “Behold the god who bleeds!”

Update: “Mr. President, the campaign ended a year ago.”
