The Audacity of Hope had charisma and the future could be seen as light at the end of the tunnel.
We were sure we were going to move out of the tunnel and into the light of day once again.
But that light at the end of the tunnel began to move further away as it began to dawn on those of us in the greater majority who voted for Obama, that he seemed to have been given a compass that led to all the wrong places Bush II had already been and polluted.
Now that light is a pinhole, and we seem to be going backwards.
The main stream media is all over the Deepwater Horizon catastrophe, as one of the larger circulation newspapers shouts:
'Everybody's lost hope'(USA Today). This comes at a time when U.S. citizens have had their fill of endless war, massive financial failures, millions losing homes and jobs, inept government, and loss of reputation in the world at large.
"Everybody's lost hope," said councilman Jay LaFont of Grand Isle, La., where beaches and its fishing industry were closed because of the spill. "As long as you have something to look forward to, a little glimmer of hope, you can move on. But this just drained everything out of us."
The Attorney General has been sent to sniff out crime at the disaster scene, but we have already seen Holder's heart too.
He let AIG off so BP will not soon be shaking in their boots.
