I think it is completely a fair assessment and to those who disagree, they need to realize that they are now in the minority and if they just sit back and make excuses, and continue to blame President Bush it is a SURE thing that President Obama will be a one term guy!

Pffft. Looked like a bunch of right-wing talking points.

When it gets to 'talking points' there doesn't really seem to be a point to a discussion - if we don't agree then we are accused of putting Obama on a pedestal and if we find fault with the people writing the article, assuming they are right wingers, we are accused of being jealous. When the author is known for being very partisan then it seems likely the article will be as well. I am not opposed to reading right wing pundits and even listening to them from time to time but try to stay away from extreme edges.

Great non-answer. I think she may have been seeking a bit more substance and I haven't even read the link yet!
