Electing Barrack Obama was hailed as a historic event. His Inaugural Address was so inspiring it is already being added to history textbooks. Since taking office, he has reversed US policy on Gitmo, abortion funding, stem cell research, and foreign relations with countries that hate us. He declared victory in Iraq and is withdrawing the troops.
So where is the local left blogosphere on Obama? Cue the crickets.
The Cucking Stool has mentioned Obama once in the last month, and that was a criticism of Obama's green power proposals.
Across the Great Divide doesn't mention Obama in the last month.
MN Progressive Project (formerly MNBlue), a group blog, hasn't posted anything on Obama since March 4th, over 100 posts.
Mercury Rising mentions Obama once in the last two weeks, 'the Administration' once, and Michelle Obama once.
Norwegianity has mentioned Obama several times in the last week, but only in defense of the One from conservative critics.
The Minnesota Independent doesn't have a single story on its front page about Obama.
The Power Liberal hasn't even used the word "Obama" in the last month.
BluestemPrarie has only mentioned Obama once in March-by way of congratulating Rep Walz for opposing Obama on his asinine wounded Vets insurance fiasco.
MNPublius bucks the trend with 4 positive entries about President Obama in the last month.
MNPost political section gets back to the trend line with 4 posts on Obama-1 that looks at his budget, 1 that blasts his proposal to tax health benefits, and two that strongly oppose his wounded Vets insurance fiasco.
These are blogs who advocated for Obama for President for over a year before the election. He is the champion of all of their far left liberal policies and the man who will overturn 8 years of George Bush. These are blogs that agreed with Obama when he said this, in Minnesota-
"we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on earth. This was the moment—this was the time—when we came together to remake this great nation so that it may always reflect our very best selves and our highest ideals."The deafening silence of the local liberal bloggers begs the question as to how they can remain silent about the man that healed the planet. Are they swamped in the euphoria of the dawning of socialism in America? Or feeling buyer's remorse?
