The GOP started 2008 with one main objective—make sure Obama is not re-elected, and to be as divisive as they could get away with.
The Republicans may have done that, but to give them credit for Obama’s plummeting approval is wrong. This is a classic case of Displacement. The blame/credit lies squarely with President Obama.
Besides, how can the “evolved leader” who is a “sort of god,” and who is “bigger than Kennedy,” and the “Platonic Philosopher King we’ve been looking for the past 2,400 years” and a “quantum leap in American consciousness,” who is “not operating on the same plane as ordinary politicians,” and who is “a figure uniquely qualified to open the door to the 21st century,” and who has the “capacity to summon heroic forces from the spiritual depths of ordinary citizens and to unleash therefrom a symphonic chorus of unique creative acts whose common purpose is to tame the soul and alleviate the great challenges facing mankind,” and who has achieved the “single most extraordinary event that has occurred in the [past] 232 years be defeated by the knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing, idiotic Republicans? I thought Obama was smart - nay, brilliant beyond words and the Republicans were dumb?
Here’s the truth: Obama lied and ran as a moderate. Once in office he resorted to his normal self and moved so far to the left that he made Mao Zedong look like a Bircher.
Bullshit can only get a person so far - especially an empty suit like Obama. Obama used up all his bullshit during the campaign and now he is finding out that he can’t vote “present” on real problems and issues facing the nation. Obama is not a leader. He has never ran so much as a hot dog stand. He is a far left loon presiding over a center-right nation who is upset at being lied to by a man who cannot string 2 words together without his ever-present teleprompter and who is pushing through crap that most Americans don’t want. That’s why Obama’s numbers are down. That’s why the Republicans took the House and increased their numbers in the Senate and in state Governorships.
Obama is just as bad—if not worse—than Bush. Only True Believers and Obama Kool-Aid Drinkers think otherwise.
