Obama and the Democrats Continuing Fail

by Les Carpenter
Rational Nation USA

Twenty one months into the administration of Barrack Hussein Obama the voting public, including those who widely supported his "hopey changey" mantra are disenchanted. The result? His party is losing support and the stage is set for a change in leadership of the Congress following the 2010 midterm elections.

The Los Angeles Times (not a favorite) has a pretty good article in todays publication. The following excerpt suns up the countries mood.

 They just don't like the job Obama is doing as president -- 47% think his policies have actually hurt the economy.

And 53% think that about the president's Democratic Party,  which, not coincidentally, has held complete control of both houses of Congress since the 2006 midterm elections.

Two-thirds of these likely voters do think George W. Bush hurt the economy, too. But it seems he hasn't been president now for 21 months and things are still in the tank, with no end in sight.

Unemployment is the country's top concern, as it has been for the entire Obama administration, even when he was holding more than five dozen healthcare townhalls. The deficit is the No. 2 concern.

In fact, almost two out of three Americans believe the country is on the wrong track under President Obama.

There is little question but what this nation is headed in he wrong direction. The groundswell of support for Libertarian principles and the Tea Party are clearly proof of this. The countries right of center political majority  is saying, okay Democrats in Congress you had your chance and blew it. Now it is time for change that works. Establishment Republican insiders we hope you are paying attention.

  1. Who's upset over the economy? Everyone.
    From Yahoo!:
    "Anger: It's the defining political emotion of this campaign season. It's boiling across the country, much of it directed at President Obama and the congressional Democrats over the way they have handled the economy. Not far behind is dissatisfaction.

    The combination, detected in a new ABC News/Yahoo! News poll, spells trouble for Democrats three weeks out from the election. Angry people, analysts say, go out and vote. Dissatisfied people tend to stay home.

    With the recovery stalling, unemployment stuck at 9.6 percent and the housing crisis entering a dangerous new phase as bungled paperwork and outright fraud force a halt to foreclosures across the country, there's plenty to get upset about."
    Original article here:

    It's about time somebody other than some rightist has come out and said this. America is not happy with Obama's lack of financial acumen and his Congress only adds to this unhappiness.

    Political emotion can only carry people so far. Once the high wears off and their pocketbooks get hit, folks tend to change their tunes.

    November 2010 and 2012 will be political bloodbaths. Even Dickie Blumenthal, long the AG here in CT and sycophantic Pelosi-lover, is facing an inevitable defeat at the hands of Linda McMahon, RINO. Funny, that. It really is starting to be that if you have a "D" on the end of your name, you are immediately regarded as an enemy of America.

    Pass the popcorn. This is about to get really good.

  2. Don - You bet it's going to get interesting, real interesting.

    The Impostor in Cheif, and his tag along Dem. Congress are getting nervous. So much so they are beginning to act like desperate statists that know their time is limited.

    A wonderful thing!

    Now if only the Repubs. figure out it can't be business as usual when given the chance for change.

  3. Is Nancy Pelosi a liability?

    Of course she is. She is nutty as a fruitcake and makes even the most liberal of liberals look like Rush Limbaugh. She is the biggest reason that term limits need to be put into place.

    As a strategy, I would definitely tie Pelosi to any Dems who are already weakened by the "president".

    Pelosi, Reid, Frank, Schumer, etc, etc. This is the Democrat Party. Fah.

  4. Les,

    I don't believe the GOP still "gets it". They are merely looking at this upcoming November election as the chance to resume power and rule over America. Nothing more.

    Most of them, "them" being GOP, will win simply because folks are sick of the Democrats. It is an age-old scenario.

    No, the GOP is lost and impotent. They have played out their hand. Until the GOP embraces true Conservatism as a whole and stops playing to the stereotype, they will remain ineffectual.
