    I don’t know who the guy on the right is supposed to be, but he kind of looks like Hitler.

    The political and media elites are framing the Democrats’ loss as a reaction to policies and initiatives Obama implemented.

    Actually, the key is what he and the Democrats didn’t do. The enthusiasm gap meant that a large part of the base that looked to them for change stayed home. The Democrats spent all their time sidling up to big money and compromising with the right wing.

    It’s simple: no change, no vote.

    From Raw Story:

    Around one million fewer Americans under the age of 30 cast ballots in the 2010 mid-term elections compared to the 2006 vote, a study from the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE) found. An estimated nine million people aged between 18 and 29, or one in five young Americans, voted Tuesday.

    Young people are considered a key Democratic Party voter bloc, and their vote was instrumental in getting President Barack Obama elected two years ago, when a record 23 million under-30s cast ballots in the presidential polls.

    That’s David Axelrod for those that are ignorant.

    I apologize to Axelrod, if he’s watching.

    The problem with that is now we have worse people who will make worse changes and who will now do all the redistricting in order to make sure that their dystopian future becomes permanent.

    Just because the change didn’t happen as fast or as perfectly as we wanted doesn’t mean we roll over and say, “Oh well, you blew it - let’s give up and let the bad guys take over.”

    The cartoon over-reaches. Rall hasn’t made clear what he is saying. In addition, he oversteps his drawing ability in trying to draw David Axelrod. His caricature of President Obama is already pretty weak.

    Right. Obama ignored the simple things that would have big impact while caving on the harder things that would have changed the game altogether.

    Obama promised things that he did not (refuses to) deliver on.
    The GOP claims 2/3 of the country doesn’t like Obama. True- 1/3 of that is racists who hate Obama because he’s black, the other 1/3 are those of us who feel he didn’t do the stuff the liberal/progressive stuff he promised.

    Reagan undid much of the forward-thinking stuff that Carter initiated. For example, he took down the solar panels on the White House that Carter put up. Carter reduced foreign oil consumption by 50%, and Reagan reversed that.
