The price of duping the American people

The Washington Examiner's Mark Tapscott writes today about the fall from grace of Barack Obama as his approval numbers continue to plummet:
[Obmaa] and his advisers believed their own hubristic press releases about solving the nation's problems by doing what Washington Democrats have been doing since FDR -- throwing tax dollars and bureaucrats at them -- only doing it more spectacularly than ever before.

So they've done pretty much what I predicted they would do in a Feb. 11 column: Obama has spent 2009 "making himself the symbol of what's wrong with Washington rather than being the agent of change in Washington."

The title of that column was "Obama headed to a one-term strategy." He still is.
"Hope and change"? As his approval numbers fall to record lows, Barack Obama may go down as the most disliked president in American history.
