◼ The social experiment that was Barack Obama's election and presidency is over. Way over. - Douglas Mackinnon/IBD
As one who was born in the heart of Boston and worked the political world of Washington for 20 years, I know quite a few Democrats. Some are family, and many are close friends. Most voted for Obama in 2008. None at this point is inclined to vote for him in 2012.
Why? Because they view him as an abject failure across the board and have decided to put the welfare of their families and themselves before the empty rhetoric of the Obama campaign before it's too late.
...liberal and jaded journalists privately admit that Obama has been exposed for what he is: an overhyped, self-invented candidate with no real-world experience who has been frozen into inaction by the enormity of the office he holds....
Today, in 2012, Barack Obama stands on his own — an unqualified man who did not have the gifts to grow into the presidency.

As a result, Democrats have taken steps to make the convention open to more people, not just party loyalists and donors.
In June, the party announced a contest in which participants have a chance to go to the convention for just $5.
