“Unhinged” is about the best word that comes to mind to describe recent political comments from President Obama.
Out on the campaign trail trying to drum up support for Democrats who are coming under heavy Republican challenge, Mr. Obama told a crowd last weekend that his party is in trouble because the public is scared and that “we’re hard-wired not to always think clearly when we’re scared.”
So that’s it — Republicans are gaining ground not because the public is repudiating the president’s policies, but rather because voters are too scared to know how to vote.
That is about the most arrogant, bone-headed comment we’ve heard yet from a president who has often made arrogant comments about those with whom he disagrees. President Obama is obviously important to himself. One wonders if the White House is really large enough to contain his ego.
No, Mr. President, voters are not acting out of fear; they’re acting out of a sense that you have got it all wrong. The “change” you promised was not the change a majority of Americans wanted. The bailouts and health care mandates and other left-leaning policies are not what most Americans expected.
The problem here is that President Obama has no background in the real world.
From community organizer to politics, the president has done nothing in his life other than exist on a government payroll. He’s never run a business, never had to follow illogical government mandates and never done anything other than live off taxpayer money.
No wonder he wants to explain away voter anger not because of his own failures, but rather because voters aren’t thinking “clearly.”
Yes, they are, Mr. President.
Perhaps if you got off that monument you have built for yourself in your own mind, you would see just why the electorate is so darn mad.
The blame is staring back at you every morning in the mirror. How dare you blame voters for fighting back.
I agree with your comments except I do not believe it is as much arrogance as it is ignorance. When all of us were told we could be whatever we wanted to be by our parents growing up ... he took it to mean it was owed to him. Again we got what we voted for. Now more than EVER this election is not for whichever party you want to be in power ... but to put America BACK ON THE RIGHT PATH. It has nothing to do with parties but all to do with vision. And from his high purch he can't see us small people. All the small people and jobs gets lost in the big vision. Big vision is for when things are going good ... poor vision is when the average man and woman can not support their families. That is what is lacking ... the concern for the small man.
