Public Is Losing Confidence In Obama
October 13, 2011 4 Comments
The Obama administration can’t even get all the Democrat Senators on board with his jobs bill. Now he’s sent out Vice President Joe Biden, who claimed in Flint, Michigan yesterday there would be less rape if only the jobs bill was passed. The administration has officially reached desperation level if they’re claiming rapes won’t happen because of their jobs bill. Now all we need is a photo op with a grandma eating a can of Alpo so that the Democrats can successfully display every stereotype of a liberal out there.
This sort of nonsense harkens to the days of 2008 and 2009 when Obama was cast as the great Messiah of America. Obama could do no wrong and there were more than a few Americans would would have believed Biden if he said at that time that the Stimulus would prevent rape. No one questioned the administration, we weren’t allowed to. After all, Obama won the election. He was also the Messiah with a filibuster proof Congress who could do as he pleased.
Fast forward to today and Obama is no longer the Messiah. His own rabble are out in the streets depending other people pay for their college education, spouting anti-Semitic statements and defecating on cop cars. The economy hasn’t gotten any better and the public elected a Republican House because of Obamacare. The administration is faced with one scandal after another these days. Obama isn’t the Messiah, he’s barely even listened to anymore. We’re to the point where Vice President Biden’s rape statement isn’t met with outrage but with laughter.
How did this happen to Obama? The decline of this President has been remarkable. Bush didn’t have poll numbers like Obama’s until his second administration. Clinton always rebounded from his low points. In fact, when Clinton gave State of the Union speeches his poll numbers always shot up at least 10 points. Obama’s numbers didn’t go up at all after his jobs speech. People have tuned him out.
The public has tuned Obama out because every positive thing Obama has said about his plans has turned out to be incorrect. The Stimulus didn’t keep unemployment under 8%. Obamacare did not reduce the cost of health insurance, in fact it increased substantially after Obamacare passed. The financial reform package didn’t reform anything and in fact caused banks to increase consumer fees. Beyond that, Obama goes overseas and apologizes for America. He even tried to apologize for nuking Japan during World War Two, which saved a million American lives and millions of Japanese.
Obama has lost the confidence of the American people. There are growing reports of Obama becoming estranged from his own administration, quitting work at 4pm, disappearing into an office in the evening for hours on end doing who knows what, not giving access to anyone in his cabinet and only speaking with Valerie Jarrett. We’re beginning to see a picture of a President who doesn’t really know what he’s doing, who doesn’t know how to manage as an executive. This picture fits with all of Obama’s previous failures and his refusal to get involved in the legislative and political process. He simply doesn’t know how to lead.
It’s going to be very difficult for Obama to regain the confidence of the general public. The election is a year away and a lot can happen in that time. The economy can turn around and that would do a lot for the public’s confidence in the President. The Republicans could nominate the wrong candidate (read: Rick Perry and pretty much anyone not named Mitt or Herman) who will instill in the public less confidence than Obama. If things continue as they are now, with the public tuning Obama out and laughing at the ridiculous statements of his Vice President, Obama is toast next November.
