Right now, Democrat politicians embody the maxim, “You reap what you sow.”
They liberally dispersed malcontent with the U.S. government, disrespect for U.S. citizens, and hatred towards U.S. actions over seas during the Bush administration.
Sure, they do that during any Republican presidency but their recent eight-year sprint of whining and maligning from 2001 to 2008 really paid off. It successfully turned America against its then commander-in-chief, George W. Bush, its military and even against itself.
Operation Liberal Agenda worked! One solid point for leftists everywhere.
Then again, maybe not in retrospect, since it worked a little too well. Despite a brief euphoria right after Obama was elected, America has slid right back into its doldrums.
According to an ABC News/Washington Post poll, only 26% of U.S. citizens say they’re optimistic about “our system of government and how well it works.” Much like the unemployment figures, that number has dropped notably since October, down 7 points.
Unlike the unemployment figures, this change is believable.
Curses! Foiled Again!
Like true leftists, the media is trying to spin the story in the best possible light for their battered president. They blame high gas prices and the fact that, “Despite a significant advance, more than half [of Americans] say the economy has not yet begun to recover.”
But please note the quoted words: “has,” “not” and “yet.” Those are seriously significant, considering how Obama-ites in the education system say that the recession ended shortly after inauguration 2009. Apparently though, the U.S. isn’t as dumb as they think it is, since we want proof of existence before we buy into the idea of an economic recovery.
It doesn’t take much effort to conclude that Obama deserves at least some – if not most or even all – of the blame for the languishing economy. In some ways, it’s even still falling; just look at the housing market, which apparently still hasn’t yet hit bottom.
So it’s no wonder that the president now has a Presidential Approval Index rating of -22.
ABC also notes that the U.S. doesn’t particularly care for the war in Afghanistan anymore. “Two-to-one opposition for the first time puts public criticism of the war in Afghanistan at the level seen for the war in Iraq. Such views,” it notes without stating its still obvious conclusion, “had a devastating impact on President George W. Bush, the least popular second-term president in polls since the Truman presidency.”
Irony hurts. But not on the Conservative side of things this time.
