Politicians and strategists believe we are in the midst of a "populist" revolt. Nope. We are in revolt against Obama's Era of Big Government 2.0. Obama has revived the era of big government. In fact, he is implementing the era of great big huge government. Great big huge government is not the solution to our problems, great big huge government IS the problem.
“Indeed, he is reaching a point where he may poll more negatively than his agenda does. “Let me be perfectly clear” and “make no mistake about it” are now caricatures.”
And yet...and yet, he can’t stay away from the cameras. He is going to double down on all his bets, which is why he is going to flame out faster than, well, just about any other prezzie.
“A new race/class/gender dynamic would doom conservatives and their-old-white-guy party and its reactionary fellow-travelers.”
Kind of like political global warning scares, huh?

Most reasonable people now realize that 0bama is not doing a damned thing that’s good for America.
We are in grave danger.

It’s a wonder the Oloon sham has lasted as long as it has. During a very difficult time, when survival is shaky, you don’t hire a babbling, narcissistic, Marxist buffoon with no experience to run the business, and compound the problem by giving him sixties-like, hippiesque freaks who have slipped through the cracks of time to supervise his spending and policies. The failure was entirely predictable, and it took an idiot, pop addled culture to miss the obvious. Now we have to pay for it. We will be paying for it fifty years from now, if not forever.

Politics aside..."REAL Americans" don't like arrogant, narcissistic President's.
This guys full of a lot of stuff...not the least of which...himself.
Like his Father(assuming...???)when reality hits...he will(personally)fall hard.
"...and dozens of other things, Obama simply does not have the popularity to carry unpopular legislation forward."
Sing it Victor!
