My state of Maryland is filled with a majority of people who don’t believe in using their intelligence.
Case in point: They voted for Obama in 2008. And even more damning is the fact that they voted for Obama again in 2012.
I mean, come on, people. Nobody should be THAT ignorant.
Yet Maryland is. It’s a depressing shame.
On the plus side, there does seem to be some hope that these people aren’t entirely unreachable. I mean, yes, it takes a hurricane for them to recognize that the wind is blowing, but they can still be taught. At least a little bit.
Reuters reports: “President Barack Obama made a rare appearance on the campaign trail on Sunday with a rally to support the Democratic candidate for governor in Maryland, but early departures of crowd members while he spoke underscored his continuing unpopularity.
“With approval levels hovering around record lows, Obama has spent most of his campaign-related efforts this year raising money for struggling Democrats, who risk losing control of the U.S. Senate in the Nov. 4 midterm election.
“Most candidates from his party have been wary of appearing with him during their election races because of his sagging popularity.”
There are a few exceptions to that rule, including Maryland’s Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown, who is looking to be Maryland’s Governor Anthony Brown. Turns out the man should have stuck with what most of his fellow Democrats recognize: that the American people aren’t pleased with their self-absorbed, self-satisfied, obnoxious-as-anything president.
I’d congratulate Maryland or America in general for getting disgusted, but we should have recognized what an egotistical jerk Obama is a long time ago.
