MAYBE THEY'RE JUST TIRED...:

US liberals have lost their thunder (Clancy Sigal, 2/24/10, guardian.co.uk)

There is an astonishing lack of anger among liberals, progressives and radicals who have abandoned emotion to the right. Our role model continues to be not FDR, still less Malcolm X, but our "bipartisan" and apparently tone-deaf President Obama. In this second or third year of a devastating depression, not just recession, that has inflicted an epidemic of suffering on the lower half of the American nation, Obama is very busy being fluent and civil while being essentially untouched by the rage felt by so many of us. Our world, as we have known it, is being annihilated, and nobody in power shows signs of giving a damn.

...after all, they just spent 8 years raving as crazily as tea partiers. Hating W that passionately had to take something out of them, especially when they realized the UR is Bush-lite.
