Where Are the Embarassed Liberals? Not Pushing Their Luck Before 2016.

Roger Simon ruminates on something I've certainly noticed.  The fawning bots of yore have gone MIA...
So why are these normally voluble people suddenly doing a disappearing act? (I’m not talking about the politicians and pundits.  They’re being paid to move their mouths.)  It’s pretty obvious.
They are bewildered and embarrassed.  Some are even ashamed of themselves, not that they will readily admit it.  The man who was their hero has now been unmasked in every direction as the worst president since the Civil War and possibly earlier. Not only is he a cheesy liar, everything he has done, domestic and foreign, has failed, sometimes to extraordinary degrees. The domestic part is bad enough, but at least that might be reparable.  The foreign is another matter.  The world is spinning out of control.  Who knows where that will end?
Hence, the silence.
Some sort of a God.  The Lightworker.  Smartest President Ever. Nobel Peace Prize Silliness.

All of it the deepest sort of phony baloney bullshit idiocy.  And all of it, loudly propounded by tens of millions of our fellow citizens.  But where are they now?  Right where they were five years ago, just quieter.

And you know where they'll be in 2016?  Pulling the same act all over again for Hillary.  Because it's all marketing.  They've got a program that is a big nothing sandwich (tax more, give people more free shit, eat the seed corn of a brighter future every day all day to buy votes) and so they have to market the package, because there's nothing inside the wrapper.  They'll say our transformative utopia-bringer was Hillary all along, they got it wrong with Obama, but they totally have it right now, America, honest.

Trust me, they'll be back, as loud and as obnoxious and as full of shit and phony salesmanship as they were in 2008 and 2012.  Trust me, the silence is just because they know they'd be pushing their luck too far between now and then.
