Came across this blog post from Neoneocon back in 2012:
…if the American people re-elect Obama despite his failures, lies, betrayals, immaturity, gaffes, arrogance, destructive foreign policy, demonstrated leftism, small-mindedness, lack of leadership, executive power-grabs, fiscal irresponsibility, and a host of other negatives I may have forgotten to list but which have been operating for the last four years, then it will prove that the American people have fundamentally changed in the direction they want this country to take, and it will require some major upheaval to reverse that trend. We can’t wait around for the perfect candidate; a good-enough candidate like Romney should be good-enough to beat Obama, and if that’s not possible it says more about the country than the candidate.
And if Romney manages to pull it out (which I believe is possible) I will be heartened and encouraged, although I have no illusions that Romney’s election would stem the Gramscian tide. But it would be a beginning, and it would buy us time.
If you replace “Obama” with “Hillary Clinton” and “Romney” with “Bernie Sanders”….
