The Washington Post has an interesting headline this morning. What’s ‘interesting’ about it is not the headline itself….
It doesn’t take much to figure that out, if you’ve been following the disastrous events of the past 2 years. What IS interesting is they dared to run such a byline! Hard to believe that bastion of liberal dribble, The Washington Post, has finally seen the light! And when you delve into the article, you will see they really haven’t. Nevertheless, they are reflecting the dissatisfaction this country has with that enemy of the state we placed in the White House.
The article focuses on an ABC News/Washington Post poll that indicates a higher level of disapproval for Congressional Republicans, 65%…compared to 52% for the President. From that point, the frustration with Washington in general is the narrative. At least they got that part right! Take what you will from the poll. No indication is given as to the party preferences or whether the respondents were actual voters. But the mood is clear as the piece indicates….”more than a third of Americans now believe that President Obama’s policies are hurting the economy, and confidence in his ability to create jobs is sharply eroding among his base…”
Of course, his base actually believed HE could “create” jobs when those of us living in the real world knew better! The President can’t “create” jobs. But he can espouse policies that foster an atmosphere in the economy which does. And THIS President has PURPOSEFULLY failed to do so!
