The most recent Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll shows Mitt Romney at 49% of voters nationwide and President Obama is at 47%. My question is what are these 47% liking in O that he has earned or deserves another 4-year term to sit in the chair of the President of the United States that the rest of us are oblivious to? Sir Winston Churchill said once that, “The best argument against Democracy is a 5 minute conversation with an average voter.” He may have well been speaking of today’s political climate.
It is my sincerest belief that the election of Mr. Obama was not an election of a president or a leader by the citizens of United States, but a very attractive and articulate celebrity, a rock star; who also happened to have been also Black. I can’t recall a time when I have seen the President’s face on so many entertainment magazines, t-shirts, coffee mugs, and entertainment shows, such as the Daily Show and the View. All this while the nation, and the world, is in crisis.
Barack Obama, got elected four years ago to be the president of the United States, after not even completing his first term in the Senate and without many voters knowing hardly anything about him personally, philosophically, or politically. They knew he was a democrat; he looked good on camera, intelligent, and spoke well – especially with a teleprompter. The voters of the United States wanted to give “him a chance”- the first true African-American, as though he was applying for managerial position at a Denny’s Restaurant. But since getting into office he seems to be unable or unwilling, to tell the truth or be straight with the American people. He came into office with a cloudy past that includes serious communist and radical liberal affiliations. He promised that if the “Stimulus Bill” was passed unemployment would not raise pass 8% and would create over 3 million jobs. Since the bill’s passage unemployment has hit a 25 year record high, negative job creation every year, and if the underemployed and those wanting full time work but having to settle for p/t work were counted, the rate today would be an astonishing 14.5%. He rammed through Obamacare without any bi-partisan input promising that it would improve and lower the cost of healthcare without raising taxes on anyone earning below $250k yearly income. But according to the Americans for Tax Reform, Obamacare will clobber every U.S taxpayer and business owner with taxes and regulations that this nation has never imagined. According to the Heritage Foundation Obamacare will end up costing millions of jobs and cripple the nation’s employment environment. Also, according to U.S Daily Review the law will not improve healthcare at all, but drastically reduce quality and access.
Mr. Obama is up to his crown in concealing and lying blatantly to the American people about Fast and Furious, that involved covertly flooding gangs in Mexico with American guns that have killed untold numbers of Mexicans and at least one U.S Border Agent. He has also played a significant role in the sacking of the strongest and largest American friendly Arab state, Egypt, and an Arab nation that was no direct threat to America, Libya. Both interestingly kept a lid on the extremely radical Islamic group the Muslim Brotherhood. But more recently with another “spontaneous uprising” in two Muslim Brotherhood-led countries of Libya and Egypt due to obscure YouTube Video defaming the Prophet Muhammad that caused the slaying of the U.S Ambassador to Libya and three Marines on September 11th. But rather than admit that the attack in Libya and on the Ambassador was a planned military attack by Al-queda he has set to conceal the truth of what actually happened, how it happened, why it happened, and blame America for our freedom of speech that allowed this obscure video to be made.
So who are these 47% of the U.S populace who still favor a man with such a track record who now wants to have another 1,460 days to “fundamentally change” America even more? Governor Romney may have had it right when he stated in September that, “there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it. That, that’s an entitlement.” And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what.” Obama seemingly panders to the lowest intellectually politically initiated in the nation and dreams of a nation of dependency, both domestically and internationally. And it is only with the blessings of the Establishment Media, with his expansive rock star production, coupled with this nation’s extreme culture of celebrity worship does his blatant verbal manipulation and deception goes mostly unabated.
But in a Democracy it is only as sturdy as the political aptitude of the least of our fellow citizen. Unfortunately these seem to be Mr. Obama’s targeted group for supporter. Thomas Jefferson may have stated the answer to what ills the nation today when he said, “Educate and inform the whole mass of the people… They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.” It does appear that many of the rest of the nation are truly beginning to listen with our ears and see with our eyes. We are beginning to hear that he says nothing, that only his lips are moving as someone else tugs at the strings, and that he is standing naked before us. We are becoming initiated to become more responsible for ourselves and wanting a better nation for our posterity. May the hands of Providence gently lie upon us all.
