Check it out: right after the CLOWN get elected in 2008, 65% of America was deluded enough to think he'd make things better.

Insanity really set in and by the town he seized power 2 months later in January of 2009, 72% of Americans thought that four years of his policies would benefit this nation.

I guess I take some solace in the fact that the number is down 11% from four years ago...and I am BETTING that by January of 2013, Americans will have an even lower view of the future...

Which, while sad, would also be more realistic.

We are experience Jimmy Carter's third term.

Democrats are nearly unanimous in their positive feelings that the next four years will be better for the country, with 94% saying so versus 4% who think things will be worse. Republicans are nearly as united but in the opposite direction, with 11% saying the country will be better off and 86% seeing the country souring. Independents are more upbeat than not about the future, 51% to 40%.

I think too many people are doing too much “medical” happy smoke in this country. That or meth.

I think I’ve heard of Gallup. They’re the ones who said we would have a president-elect Romney right about now.

My God. How deluded can people believe. The economy is a mess. 23 million unemployed and more losing their jobs every day. It makes no sense. People have really gone mad.

So 54% are too stupid to see a freight train coming straight at them.

Apparently, as long as the MSM keep telling people everything is swell and Obama is terrific people really do buy it. Apparently staring down the barrel of total economic devistation doesn’t phase people as long as they have that warm glowing happy talk on the flat screen.

Better off four years from now — because BO will finally be out of the White House (we hope)?

It seems they are testing their base voters.

Must be disappointing for them to see their dear Leader down some though remaining upbeat that a good number of the Jim Jones followers are still on the Obama bus..

“Despite the smiles and the uplifting rhetoric, Romney’s message was essentially one of austerity: we’ll have to suck it up and tighten the belt before it gets better. And America did not want to hear that message. It burns.”

54% are optimistic? Makes sense to me. 51% re-elected the Marxist Despot. There is no statistically significant difference between those two numbers.

In 2008 65% of the people thought things would be better because the Food Stamp President would be leaving office in 4 years. In 2012 54% of the people think things will be better because the Food Stamp President will be leaving office, but he will have screwed up the economy so bad that 11% have given up hope.

A majority of Americans are complete morons, cowards, and lazy scum.
