Our Nameless and Blameless President

Somehow I’m still on the Democrats’ radar, even though I left the Party a few years ago. Because, despite my best efforts to get off their list, Democrats.com keeps sending me emails.
Usually I just delete the mail, but I couldn’t resist opening this one, since the subject heading shouted, “Tell Congress: Not One Dime for Libya.” I thought: finally! A major Democratic organization is taking Obama to task for instigating a new war without congressional approval.
Imagine my shock when I saw that the missive makes absolutely no mention of Obama. Not a single word about the dude! Judging from the email, one would think that Obama was innocently partying in Rio when, unbeknownst to him, the “Tea Party Republican henchmen,” as the writer puts it, started a war. The email even names names; the men behind the Libyan attack are that evil troika, “McCain, Graham, and Joe Lieberman.”
According to the email, the organization opposes another war partly because Afghanistan is costing a fortune. Yet, they also fail to utter the O word when condemning war with Afghanistan. Through some bizarre mental gymnastics, the organization implicates the “rightwing billionaires Rupert Murdoch and the Koch Brothers.”
The sad thing is that most Democrats will read this baloney and believe it. Why shouldn’t the average liberal? The MSM won’t tell them otherwise.
Excusing Obama from any responsibility for Libya actually insults the man, when you think about it (which the Democrats will not bother to do.) What are the implications of Obama’s apparent cluelessness? Let’s consider the possibilities:
While the Left’s thinking is distorted and nonsensical, the tragedy is that most Obama supporters won’t care. The average liberal in the street will not change his or her views about Obama, no matter what he does.
And since Obama is never to blame, the left needs their boogeyman, and any conservative will neatly fit the bill. Usually it’s Sarah and Rush; today it’s Lieberman, et al. Meanwhile, Democrats have absolutely no qualms about coming across as paternalistic and, yes, racist, each time they let Obama off the hook.
