Let's approach this in NFL terms.

Coach C retires after a successful career, building a perennial winner with a number of playoff victories and a team on solid financial ground with wide fan support.

Coach B is hired, only to see the team falter badly. They go from 9-7 in his first season, to 6-10, 3-13 and finally 1-15, with embarrassing losses becoming the norm. Fan support drops dramatically, revenue is way down and he's shown the door.

Coach O comes on board to restore the once proud franchise. His first year is only 5-11. Followed by an 8-8 season, then 9-7, but missed the playoffs. Receipts have improved, but the team's still in the red.

A loud group of sadly self-deluded fans demand, "bring back coach B!"

Lame analogy because your guy can't deliver on his promises.

Lame indeed.

So when we elected Obama that would make him coach B, and then when we re-elected him, that would make him coach C? That sounds dumb, but here's your sign...

The longer he is in office the lower the expectations become of President Obama by his supporters.

It's sad for them.

In reality, it's good. It means he can't get done what they want.

Except Coach O is continuing many of the policies off Coach B and adding his own touch which will result in the team to lose indefinitely.

Left wing liberalism:

All players must earn the same amount of money even if they sit on the bench.
Play players because of their color not because of their skills.
Restrict all contact until it's effectively a flag football league.
Saying a prayer before a game would be outlawed.
Have Lil Wayne sing the Star Spangled Banner.
Teams can't discriminate against fat out of shape old athletes.

Darth Barry is just simply punting on first down. He thinks he's an expert at everything, but we all know that the only thing he's really good at is being a swindler. Meanwhile, liberals continue to make me laugh. Leftists just love painting negative pictures of those who've worked hard to make this country a great nation.
