I’m sure I speak for many Americans when I say I’m getting really bored of Obama’s debt talks.
That’s not to say they’re not important, because they clearly are. (The debt talks, that is, not Obama)
This country is in a major financial pickle after decades of corruption, stupidity and shortsighted policies. From the federal level on downward, our government has spent money it had no right to spend on projects that the private sector could have handled much better or, even worse, that didn’t need to be bothered with at all.
Obviously, we need to do something about such policies and practices if we want to retain a country worth living in. What we don’t need, however, is Obama’s self-serving stubborn refusal to do anything but act like he’s some sort of god among us.
Even liberals are starting to recognize how he’s no messiah, which says something profound since, up until this point, they’ve remained as malleable as drug-induced sorority girls while frat boy Obama uses them and the rest of the country shamelessly.
But maybe not so much anymore, if blue-blood, blue-vote, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is now mentioning how “it would be a good idea if President Obama faced some primary opposition.” And the LA Times further notes a new ABC News/Washington Post poll that shows “strong indications that Obama’s liberal base is starting to crumble.”
Apparently, 82% of Americans take a negative view of the job market and 90% understand the economy is performing worse than it should be. And while Bush still gets a lot of blame for the mess, only 15% of respondents say they’re getting ahead today, while 30% said they were in 2006 under the much-maligned former president.
Even if Bush started it, Obama is failing miserably to end it.
And after having to deal with him and his ridiculously erroneous rhetoric since the 2008 electoral campaign, it’s no wonder why fewer and fewer people are willing to support him.
