Skip to comments.Why millions of voters are divorcing Obama

According to the latest Gallup poll, Mitt Romney has leapt from a significant deficit to a 2-point lead in the wake of his widely lauded Presidential debate performance. He is simultaneously closing in on Obamas lead in several swing states.
This dramatic change may turn out to be even more meaningful when viewed through a lens that properly values the psychological power of incumbency.
A shift by the electorate away from an incumbent president has more in common with divorce than it does with opting against a second date.
When Americans bond with a president for more than three years, the decision to back a different candidate often comes only after much soul-searching and an extreme level of discomfort. When real disappointment sets in, and voters finally voice their intention to support the challenger, their decision can be permanent. They may be saying that the relationship is, finally, beyond repairthat there is no going back.
In my practice, marriages rarely end over a single event or disappointment. But, one event can, indeed, represent a breaking point when dissatisfaction has been simmering for months or years. The first presidential debate was such an event.
For the sake of metaphor, think of any friend who has called you and, after a tumultuous, but passionate, relationship, finally, finally, come to the realization that her husband isnt the man she thought he wasat all...

“Why millions of voters are divorcing Obama”
Uh, cause he sucks?
‘Cause it turns out he doesn’t love us after all?
Well, millions of voters may now have packed their bags and moved out, after a whirlwind romance with President Obama and a relatively short marriage marred by unemployment, constant arguing, name-calling, signs he never much liked them, anyhow (at least not the patriotic ones), and one of those terrible nights (debate night) when (in those words that any man who has gravely disappointed a woman has heard) he had nothing to say for himself

“Cause it turns out he doesnt love us after all?”
Na. I’m sticking with ‘cause he sucks’.
Now I understand what it means to be the victim of spousal abuse - four years of it.
” n my practice, marriages rarely end over a single event or disappointment. But, one event can, indeed, represent a breaking point when dissatisfaction has been simmering for months or years. The first presidential debate was such an event. “
Looks like you have a brain, Doc. Well stated.
Hey—I never married this bastid! I knew from the moment I laid eyes on him that he was an affirmative action hire.............
” Na. Im sticking with cause he sucks.”
Saves having to type out 40 pages of Obamatrocities, don’t it ?
Same reason everyone else gets divorced... He won’t get a job, he just lays around the the house watching sports, bad mouthing your friends, asking for more money all the time, telling you lies everytime you ask him a question, making fun of your family, etc.!!!
I never had a bond with this president. I knew all along that he hated/hates everything about me - my values, my religion, my economic class, my heritage, and my skin color.
Now, for those who DID form a bond, it was more of a bond with the portrait they had painted him to be in their mind - brilliant, caring, charismatic, well spoken.
The debate performance put the lie to this illusion. He was revealed as a near moron that couldn’t speak, nor articulate his ideas, without it being written down for him and scrolling across two screens in front of him.
” I knew from the moment I laid eyes on him that he was an affirmative action hire...”
Obama single handedly lowered the ranking of Harvard Law School to just above that of “Hollywood School of Law, and Automatic Transmission Repair”
OBAMA....NO TELEPROMPTER, NO WORKIE !
The real reason:
Hey, the people who “hooked up” with this guy? They remind me of those types who usually DO pick losers to begin with ... people who REFUSE to really get to know the person, are swayed by looks, or are just high on the moment ...
This type of crap ALWAYS ends up in divorce — and they get what they DESERVE.
Yet, we the American taxpayer are going to get stuck with the “kids” from this marriage: out of control debt and an larger entitlement state!
LOL!! Love it!!
I saw him at a small club in Indianapolis in 1982 while I was stationed at Ft. Ben Harrison. Was about 10 feet from the stage. Remember him adding sugar to his Coca-Cola, which I found somewaht strange. He was VERY good.
Could this be like like a woman eventually figuring out that she married a cross between Prof Harold Hill, Mordicai Jones, and Bernie Madoff?
Let me guess, there’s no more hope and they are just left with the change.
” Yet, we the American taxpayer are going to get stuck with the kids from this marriage: out of control debt and an larger entitlement state!”
Yeah. I posted the other day that even if this bowl of vomit loses, it could take us 10 years to repair the damage. And THAT is even assuming our party has the guts to undo all of his EO’s, and fires 40 “communist czars”
A lot of moderates and independents voted for Obama in part because of the historical importance of the 1st black president only to be disappointed.
It's as if instead of being a Hall of Fame caliber player, Jackie Robinson had turned out to be a .215 hitter who couldn't field.
“40 pages of Obamatrocities, dont it ?”
I become so disgusted by this puke of a president that I created my own web site, the Obama Clarifier. http://obamaclarifier.blogspot.com/
I went there. Good job!
I believe all of the former Admin employees submit their resignations as a matter of protocol after an election for president.
” believe all of the former Admin employees submit their resignations as a matter of protocol after an election for president.”
These Marxist/Maoists may be the historical exception. They may leave only at gunpoint, or military escort : )
Very good article. Pretty darned astute analysis of the road from here on in the campaign, I believe.
He broke his oath to this nation. This entire nation knows it. But 47% could give a rats azz.
Difference is, obama can't believe he's been busted, but the disillusionment among the peons of the emerald city is massive.
