It’s kind of fun to chart the decline of Barack Obama as a political force. He has fallen farther, faster than anyone I can remember. Here is the latest indignity: in a head to head matchup with Ron Paul among likely voters, it’s a dead heat, 42-41. Remarkably, Paul sweeps the independent vote by an astonishing 47-28 percent.
Actually, in that race I might vote for Obama; as I explained here, I consider Paul a disreputable character. And Paul’s views on defense issues are probably even more irresponsible than Obama’s. Still, it’s quite an indignity for The One: after less than a year and a half in office, voters would just as soon take a chance on the Pee-Wee Herman of the Republican Party.
