Americans are not too happy with Hope and Change

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.

About The American Patriot

Short Bio: I started blogging about politics in 2006, as a populist, skeptical left of center type, with a blog called simply, "The Populist." In 2007, that blog was hacked by some nasty, evil neoconservatives who sought to silence me. During the 2008 election cycle, around the middle of 2007, I began to see that I really did not fit within those circles and after my blog was hacked; I created a blog called "Political Byline" and I kept writing; first as a Centrist and then as a Paleoconservative. For my long bio, see the "About Me" section on this blog.
