This comes via HotAir.com and it really makes you wonder.
I was going to embed the video here, BUT! I guess this software does not like video embeds. So, you'll have to hope on over to my blog to listen to the video. Click here to do so
They do have a point, he did make all of those promises, and now they have turned on them. I said it long ago on this blog, within 6 months time; Barack Obama would go from being the hero to Public Enemy number one. Sadly, Mr. President, you have proven me right 10 times over.
The sad thing about this is the following; Bush was in office for eight years. Until the start of the Iraq War on March 20, 2003, President Bush's poll numbers were favorably high. The nation was coming off the horror of September 11, 2001. It was not until the war turned ugly in 2006; that Bush's poll numbers started the serious drop. With the current President, it has taken six months. That very fact my friend is very astounding.
The interesting part is what is turning against him. First off, the far right has always not liked him; 46% of which voted for John McCain, the rest voted for either Bob Barr, Chuck Baldwin or wrote in Ron Paul. (This is not to mention the votes that went to Ralph Nader and the other third Parties.) Therefore, that takes care of the far right, The Republicans and the independent Conservatives, like me. (...and Yes, that does include the "Birther" crowd...) What is really shocking is this; the very people that worked to elect Barack Obama are the very ones that are now turning on him; The Far Left! This video is a perfect example of that fact. Not to mention the many self-proclaimed "Independent's" that voted for him as well. They are in full out retreat mode away from this President. I have a belief as to why, it can be summed up in one word; Overreach.
President Barack Obama during the 2008 election made some of the most outlandish statements that I have ever heard during an election. Of the good majority of them; anyone that is dealing with half of a deck, (So to speak) knew that The President had no intention of fulfilling these promises. I would literally laugh aloud at times, when this President would say the stuff that He did. The real troubling part is; people actually lapped it up like dogs. Especially those on the far left, they were convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt, that this person was the second coming of the liberal Messiah. It seems now, that the Far Left has awoken to the fact that Obama is not the "Hope and Change" prophet, that he said he was during the Campaign and before he took office.
It has been a personal political observation of mine that when a President starts slipping in the polls and the Country begins to turn away from him; it usually happens among the fringes or the grassroots; or what we refer to day as the “Netroots.” The slipping never starts among the Democratic or Republican establishments. The people revolt first, not the establishment. This goes along with that whole idea that Government is “Of the people, by the people” and not the other way around.
One would think that Obama would have known something like this; tragically I believe that this was overlooked, something that I believe will come back to haunt this Administration. I also believe that if this Administration and this Congress attempts to ram though this Healthcare bill; that there will a massive revolt among moderate Democrats and Independents and the election cycle of 2010 will be a day of reckoning. On the other side of the coin, if they drop the public option or the bill dies entirely there could be a collapse of the entire base of the Democratic Party. Either way this will be nothing but good for the Republican Party, provided that they run some true Conservatives and not a bunch of indecisive idiots that want to play paddy cake with the other side.
Either way, this coming political season in September is going to be quite interesting.
