Should I be shocked?
It’s February, nine months before a presidential election, and only 22 percent of Americans say they are satisfied with the way things are going. Voters haven’t been this unhappy with the country since George H.W. Bush’s presidency, when only 21 percent of Americans reported being happy with the country’s direction. And before that, the lowest approval rating was 19 percent during Jimmy Carter’s first term.
What do the two presidencies have in common? Neither of them won re-election. And, if the trends holds true, Obama looks to be in an equally precarious situation.
No, I am not; why with the shoving of Obamacare down the throat of Americans and all the failures of this Administration — none of it should really be a real surprise. Of course, if Americans had listened to bloggers like myself; we would not be in this sort of a position. But we are, because Americans allowed a man to seduce them with flowery speeches and possibly because of the novelty of electing a black President. Which was, truly, affirmative action at its worst.
May this be a lesson to America for pursuing such ignorance.
