Was America “swept off its feet” with president Obama?
“For 30 months the nation has been in the grip of a certain Obama obsession, immune to countervailing facts, unwilling to face reality, and loath to break the spell. But like all trances, the fit is passing, and we the patient are beginning to appreciate how the stupor came upon us, why it lifted, and what its consequences have been.” National Review October 23rd, 2009
Of course… This could be analyzed in its various parts, but we’ll assume this is accurate.
National Review proceeded to name a few points as to why Obama was elected. That he was eloquent, young, African-American and that John McCain ran a weak campaign.
But are the American people having electors remorse?
And here’s another study, with a couple of other presidents:
But what is the reason for the recent fall in approval?
“At one time or another, Obama and his supporters have, rather scurrilously, insulted doctors, insurers, the police, tea-partiers and town-hallers, opponents of his health-care plan, non-compliant members of the media, and a host of other groups as either greedy, dishonest, treasonous, unpatriotic, moblike, racist, or in general worthy of disrespect.” National Review October 23rd, 2009
So that’s about it, when you don’t respect people, they don’t normally like you. All he has to do is just treat people like real-live people. It’s not that hard. Treat people with the respect they deserve.
Plus, now that he is president, many people are seeing the real Obamanomics and policies.
